  • Property Type: House
  • Minimum Stay: 5 nights

The Salty Dude is a hidden gem on a private road which accesses only two homes. The north end of the Cape is considered the quiet area and is known for its glamorous white sand beaches and aqua water. The secluded beach is not busy even during high volume weeks. This tier 1 gulf side home is tucked behind a sand dune. The private boardwalk (25 feet away from the house) is shared by only two homes. You are sure to relax at this piece of paradise! Feel free to contact us with any questions you might have.

This home was recently renovated and new furniture was added throughout for your beach vacation. The bright & sunny open living space of the family room, dining room and kitchen is a great space to entertain or relax. It contains a 55" smart TV with Dish Network as the provider. The kitchen is fully stocked and the dining area has a large table that seats six comfortably. There are three full size bedrooms, a pullout queen sofa sleeper with memory foam mattress, and two full bathrooms with one containing a community 84” double bowl vanity which makes the home feel like it has three bathrooms. A full size washer & dryer is located in the spacious utility room for convenience during your stay. There is parking for three vehicles with one being covered. Also, lots of room for your belongings which can be stored under the house out of the weather, as well. You are 25 feet to the boardwalk and an approximate 150 feet walk down the boardwalk to the beach without the ocean front weekly prices. The beach is beautiful with access to miles of white sand beaches and blue water. This house is ideally situated on the Cape near the entrance to the St. Joseph Peninsula State Park and the untouched beauty of “Old Florida”. This is an excellent location to rent a canoe, paddle-board, kayak, boat, or bicycle and explore. There is a bicycle path the entire length of the Cape allowing connectivity between the St. Joseph Peninsula State Park and Salinas Park.
Bonfires and vehicles are allowed on the beach. Please visit the Gulf County Florida website for details on obtaining permits for vehicles and rules for bonfires.

Unique Benefits

Calm surreal environment. No hustle bustle, amusement parks, or partying.

Why Kids Love It

Kids love the short 150 foot stroll down the boardwalk to the beach and all of the sea shells to collect daily on the "Old Florida" style beach.

Area Information

Local Information...
With 10 miles of sugar white sand, St. Joseph Peninsula State Park is a top rated beach in the United States. Sunbathing, shelling, snorkeling, swimming, bicycling and fishing are popular activities. A boat ramp which accommodates most trailered vessels is located at Eagle Harbor. There is also boat ramp in Port St. Joe. You should go online or call the Florida state parks visitor information center to locate the best location for you to launch.

Some of the highest dunes in the nation are found here as well as some of the last remaining habitat of coastal sand pine scrub. The park has an abundance of wildlife and provides excellent opportunities for bird watching and wildlife viewing. The park is extremely popular during scallop season (July 1 - Labor Day weekend).

Other local spots...
Two General Stores containing everything you need, with one being only less than three miles away, and Kayak & Bike Rentals are available on the Cape.

Attractions Within Walking Distance

Cape San Blas has a two lane asphalt walking trail the entire length of the peninsula. If biking or walking the Cape you will connect with four parks.

Favorite Places To Eat

Favorite local restaurants...
Cone Heads on the Cape (.1 miles from the entrance to the house), Donuts next to the Tradin' Post General Store on the Cape, Brick Wall Sports Bar in Port St. Joe, Pepper’s Mexican Restaurant in Port St. Joe, Indian Pass Raw Bar in Indian Pass, and many more to choose from.

In Apalachicola there is Up the Creek Raw Bar, The Grill, Tamara’s, and the Raw Bar on Highway 31 en route to Apalachicola. This small Floridian town is a must-see and the drive up the coast is beautiful.

Inside Scoop

Bonfires and vehicles are permitted on the beach. Please see the Gulf County website on how to obtain a vehicle permit.

Tallahassee airport is a viable option if Northwest Florida airport (Panama City) doesn't have the flight for you. We have flown out of Tallahassee. The drive is super easy. It can be straight and quiet or there is a scenic route down the coast through small coastal towns.

Don't forget The Cape is in the eastern time zone.
