Overview

Port Saint Joe House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 13-14)

This modern house sits on the beach, in a gated area, overlooking the Gulf of Mexico and St. Joseph Peninsula State Park, which was recently ranked as the best beach in the U.S., (see link below for national rankings). The house as well as the beach is dog friendly.

Cape San Blas is known for its clear, clean, aquamarine water, sugar-like sand, tall dunes, stunning views, and secluded location. Today it is getting harder and harder to find a quiet place to soothe away stress. Well, this is the place!

With unobstructed views to the Gulf, the park and St. Joe Bay, “Parkside” at Secluded Dunes is one of the most desirable vacation destinations in the United States. This large, open, tastefully-furnished house, with top-of-the-line kitchen and all the amenities includes high speed internet, a 50 inch television, unlimited long distance and Wi-Fi. Two bedrooms have private bathrooms with king size beds and two have private bathrooms with queen size beds. The kids’ bunkroom sleeps three and has a half bath across the hall.

While watching the spectacular sunset over the Gulf from the huge screened-in porch, you may also see deer on the dunes or dolphin in the water. Early risers can watch the sunrise over “Parkside’s” private acreage.

Bring your boat and launch it at the state park, close by. There is plenty of room for your boat and several cars on site. The fishing is superb, either in the surf out front or minutes away in St. Joe Bay, where Tarpon make their yearly appearance in July and August. Cobia, Pompano, Redfish and Speckled Trout help make the Cape a fisherman’s paradise. Other activities include diving for scallops in late summer, crabbing, and beach combing. The surf is normally low, making for excellent swimming and kayaking. A two man kayak is provided as well as two bicycles, which you can ride along the five mile bike path next to Cape San Blas Road. The adjacent state park is a mecca for bird watchers.

Perhaps, best of all is the peace and quiet you will enjoy in the secluded, 2,500 acre beach park which is our immediate neighbor to the north.

A beautiful beachfront home. Tremendous views, sun rises and sun sets.

  • 5 of 5

We just left from a week at Parkside. Did not want to leave. We had a wonderful, quiet and relaxing week. Wonderful experience with home owner and Coastal Joe. We were very well taken care of. We highly recommend this property for privacy and peace and quiet. We do also recommend that a couple of beds get new mattresses. Two were pretty squeaky and a little too soft. One upstairs bedroom did not seem to be getting the proper amount of air conditioning. We experienced a power outage but not a lengthly one. This of course was a weather issue but we were surprised to discover that the water in the house also shut down. Not a big deal for short period of time. We suggest an information sheet be added to house information about power outages. Maybe have some emergency candles in the house too. All that being minor inconveniences we have plans to return!!

The Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here the week of Labor Day and couldn't have asked for a better week, despite arriving on the tail end of Tropical Storm Lee, great waves to watch though! The house was so great, beautifully decorated, just like out of a Pottery Barn catalog. The kitchen was very well stocked, 2 coffee pots, 2 ovens, 2 refrigerators,great washer and dryer, wonderful ice maker, tons of room to move around in! The covered front porch was also awesome, its where the adults spent most of their time, beautiful views and we loved seeing the deer and fawns crossing right in front of us. The house was super clean and we loved the spacious bathrooms, including the bidets, and the bathroom outside with the two showers was also a very thoughtful touch! We also enjoyed the bikes and the kayak,I, my son and niece absolutely loved kayaking in the calm waters of the gulf. We would definitely love to come back, soon. The pictures don't do it justice either, the house is much larger than the pictures depict.. Oh and my son loved the Netflix! We didn't go out to eat any except to Triple Tails for great tasting steamed cajun shrimp and steamed oysters, they also serve the best pomegranate martinis. Cape San Blas is just the most awesome place, we love it and as long as we're able we will always make this our beach destination. Thanks so much for the great house and for all the care you have taken to make it so welcoming!

Awsome Beach Vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

Awsome House! Our second year to secluded dunes and it couldn't have been better! Had 4 generations from toddlers to Great-grandparents and was perfect for all. The house was immaculate yet very comfortable and livable. The beach was great and the location next to te park was great for uncrowded beach days. Can't wait to stay again! Loved the stocked rec room. Also loved the ice maker! (a real plus for filling the beach cooler!)

The dream vacation came true...

We enjoyed this home so much. The porch and scenery was breathe taking. The sunsets were amazing and I couldn't say enough about the clean beaches. The house was perfect for our growing family with all the amenities anyone could ask for. Thank you for making our dream vacation come true.
