MANATEE Beachfront/Gulffront ultimate views couples getaway.

An oaisis on the beach.


Watch the Dolphins frolic in the not so distant Gulf or stroll up and down miles of pure white sandy beaches. You'll be amazed by the beauty and remarkably untouched gulf sand. You won't find a beach crowded with sunbathers here! But you will find a pristine snow-white sand beach calling you for relaxing afternoons in the sun or dipping into the waves in the Gulf of Mexico.

Enjoy an unforgetable horseback ride on-the-beach during your stay. Just down the road is the 2516 acre St Joe Peninsula State Park with excellent snorkeling, swimming, birding, boating and canoe rentals, as well as a boat launch. Apalachicola National Estuarine Research Reserve encompassing over 246,000 acres in Apalachicola Bay is the second largest Estuarine Research Reserve system in the nation.

Sightseeing water or land tours of scenic Port St Joe and Apalachicola are available daily. Visit the islands of St. George or St. Vincent National Wildlife Refuge(a fabulous unspoiled, island known for wonderful shelling.) Beach umbrella, chairs and bicycle rentals are available nearby.

You can 'catch' dinner. Be it fish from the beach or scallops from one of the most pristine bays in Florida. You can enjoy eating out at one of the local eateries, most serving fresh local seafood caught daily.

Manatee-Cape San Blas -WOW!!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful experience! Relaxing and Peaceful!! Not enough can be said about our stay. The townhome was very clean, nicely furnished, inviting and comfortable. The kitchen was so very well equipped -- any cook would be delighted. The white sandy beach was delightful to walk and the shell hunting was very successful. Two balconies to enjoy!!! No one could ask for more. We golfed three times while there and what a beautiful course. The place to "get away" and have all amenities of home.

Great beach...great condo!

  • 5 of 5

We've been going to "the cape" for 10 years. By far the best condo we've stayed in! Very private beach with an awesome view. Great sunsets, evening bonfires, great fishing and awesome shelling! The condo had everything we could possible need for a week of absolute relaxation! Really enjoyed the deck off the master bedroom for morning coffee and of course the evening star show! If you are looking for a really nice condo on one of the best beaches... this is it!

Great private end unit is directly on the beach. Romantic upper balcony off the master bedroom is lit by millions of stars. Lower balcony provides shade and a constant breeze with a million dollar view. Keep an eye out for the turtles and daulphins. Can't wait to get back there

We had a wonderful trip tp Cape San Blas and "Manatee" in late July 2004. We enjoyed the trip immensely as it was quite relaxing and rejuvenating. The accomadations were extremely comfortable and we appreciated the great location on the beach. Everything was as advertised and we were very satisfied. We will visit again.
