"A Beach Break" - if you enjoy the amenities of vacationing in a gated community on our top-rated beach, but would also like more space and privacy than most townhomes on the Cape offer, then "A Beach Break" may just be what you're looking for.
We are less than 70 yards from the dune walk-over to one the nicest beaches in the USA -- the nearby St. Joseph Peninsula State Park was rated America's Best Beach in 2002 by Dr. Stephen P. Leatherman, otherwise known as Dr. Beach. "A Beach Break" has a nice Gulf view from our 3rd floor screened porch.
With 1560+ sq feet of interior space, we sleep 8 with room to spare, have 360 sq. feet of screened porch and balcony space, lots of closet space and we are an end unit for added privacy. Bed and bath linens are provided. Master BR #1 has its own balcony and the screened porch off the living room has sliding panels for an unobstructed Gulf view.
After years of vacationing as both renters and owners, we know how important a properly maintained, nicely furnished and well-stocked vacation home is to your overall enjoyment. We also know how important these items are to building a strong repeat rental client list. Here are some comments from families who have stayed at "A Beach Break":
A Beach Break was a fantastic place. We had plenty of room with 8 people and 1 dog. The access to the beach was less than a minute walk and the unit had plenty of beach gear that we were able to use. I had brought our own chairs and beach equipment and never even used them! The kitchen was perfect with plenty of dishes, pots and pans, and even spices (i brought my own; but the unit has a pretty good supply). We enjoyed relaxing at the beach during the day, taking evening walks with the beautiful sunset, shelling, seeing crabs, chasing the ghost crabs and we even had a beach fire on our last night! I would definitely recommend your place and look forward to coming again next year!!

My family stayed at "A Beach Break" 3 times last year and has already booked a spring trip for 2015. This condo has everything your family needs to escape the daily grind. Toys, movies, and a kitchen full of cooking utensils allows our family to relax together. The condo community has great amenities such as the pool and playground.

Nearly everyone says how cozy our unit is and that they would love to stay there again next time they visit the Cape. It's a great unit for the price and we run specials for off-peak weeks. It never hurts to inquire to see if we have a reduced rate for the week you want.
Come stay with us for a week or more and see how a great vacation at the Cape can turn into an Awesome Vacation when you're staying in a home the owners love and care about. If you try us once, we believe there is a good chance you'll join our growing list of repeat vacationing families.

"A Beach Break" is in the gated SeaCliffs townhome community near the St. Joseph's Peninsula State Park on Cape San Blas. The Park was rated America's Best Beach in 2002 by Dr. Stephen P. Leatherman, otherwise known as Dr. Beach. The Cape has also been rated the #1 Dog-Friendly Beach in the United States for 2013 by PetVR.
Fishermen have the best of both worlds: surf and deep-sea fishing in the Gulf, and fishing and scalloping in the calmer Bay. Wading in the waters of the Bay searching for scallops and hermit crabs is a great family-oriented activity. Bird-watching along the scenic Bay is always a thrill with egrets and herons plentiful.
Horseback riding on the beach, chartering a pontoon boat to explore the Bay, riding bicycles, sea kayaking on the Gulf or Bay, and playing a championship 18-hole golf course on the mainland provide even more options for fun and relaxation.

Guestbook comments from the host:
We have stayed at A Beach Break many times over the past 10 years and always enjoy our stay. The kitchen is well stocked. There are lots of games and puzzles to entertain my kids. The tvs have been recently upgraded to allow streaming and I was excited to see an upgraded, quiet dishwasher. My kids enjoyed the pool and it is easy access to the beach from the condo. The condo has lots of beach chairs and umbrellas, which is an added perk. A Beach Break is really just as it sounds, a great place for our family to escape and hang out together.
Our family spent the week in Cape San Blas for the first time ever. The water and beach are beautiful though a little crowded from what we expected. The unit was very well supplied with everything we could ask for. The owner gave us a courtesy call to make sure everything was good which I thought was exceptional. The location was nice being very near the pool and a very short walk to the beach. Coastal Joe made the check in and out as easy as it could have been. Will definitely return.
Great family trip to Caoe San Blas. Weather was awesome and it was not crowded so we were able to enjoy the restaurants on the island and in Port St Joe. Beachbreak townhouse was in a great location. 3 floors with lots of steps but we needed the exercise. it was nice to have beach chairs and umbrellas. The place was clean and we had no issues while we were there. The place is close to the pool and not too far to the beach. The grounds were clean . The owner and rental company were helpful with a last minute reservation.
Our third stay here so obviously it meets our expectations. Great proximity to the beach. Pool is almost right behind the unit. Always clean. Very well stocked kitchen. Nicely accommodates our four adults and two children party. Dave, the owner, and Coastal Joe are very helpful and easy to work with. Great value for Cape San Blas!
We could not have had a more perfect week (exception … one swimmer's ear). The weather was absolutely beautiful. Rain only one very late evening! The water could not have been better! Clean!! And beautiful! Waves, big waves, li'l waves and no waves! The Kids and us adults loved them all! Your condo met all our needs. Thank you! This is our 10th year coming to the Cape. We grew up going to Panama City but fell in love with Cape San Blas!
Fishing of the shore always proves to be exciting. This year, several baby shark, a baby hammerhead, pompano, blue fish, and whiting. All from the shore! We love it here! And “Weber’s” oh my! Delicious! Cone Heads our fav seafood! Hope to be back next year.
We have been coming to Cape San Blas & SeaCliffs for almost 10 years. We enjoyed great weather, swimming in the ocean, boat trips on the bay finding starfish, scallops and dolphin spotting. The guys enjoyed fishing. The frosted coconut donuts at Weber’s are the best! My doggie Ben loved it, too. Thanks for sharing your beach home.
I had been to the Cape many times years ago. We had stayed at these Condos. I was alone for some R&R. The unit was perfect. Clean, well decorated and had everything you could ever need. The view of the beach and pool were awesome. I will go again.
The “Forgotten Coast” is a wonderful place to visit and Sea Cliffs is a great place from which to do it. The home we have stayed in for four years now is comfortable, well maintained and fully equipped. The rental agency and the owner are very responsive and a delight to deal with. The beach is just perfect and a short walk from the complex. We look forward to many more visits!
Our family of 4 has enjoyed another year at “A Beach Break.” We are so appreciative of all the hard work the Cornishs did to restore the unit for a perfect stay after Hurricane Michael. We thoroughly enjoyed each meal on the deck, played lots of games, spent lots of time at the pool, and of course soaked in hours on the beautiful beach. We absolutely love staying here – it feels like home and has everything we need for a perfect vacation. We look forward to our kids growing up here!
Thanks for all the hard work to make an incredibly memorable vacation!
My family of 4 (Easton 6, and Ellie 3) had a great 2 week stay at A Beach Break. The unit comes with everything you need for an extended stay. During our 2 week stay we made every meal in the well stocked kitchen, only eating out 1 time, and sat as a family on the screened porch to eat every meal. The screened porch is a great asset!
The beds are extremely comfortable, the view is great, the location is perfect. We have stayed in other areas on the Cape in the past and knew immediately A Beach Break is where we will now always come back to.
This was our second time staying at the condo, and it was even better than I remembered. Great location, nicely updated, & both owner and rental management company were great to deal with. Will definitely return!
We enjoyed our stay at “a beach break.” Very clean and nice place to stay.., all the beach equipment needed to relax and have fun. Beds were very comfortable... easy access to the pool. Thanks Dave
Have stayed here 5 times. Perfect location overlooking pool and gulf. Two plus BD so good for small family or 2 couples. Attractive and all needs are met. You can't go wrong and attentive owner is a plus.
Our experience booking and staying at A Beach Break was wonderful! The owner, Dave, was very helpful and pleasant, answering all our questions about the unit and giving us information about the area. The townhouse was extremely well stocked and everything worked perfectly. The furniture was comfortable and clean. The pool was well-maintained with lots of chaises and umbrellas so we had plenty of shade from the midday sun. The boardwalk to the beach was very convenient - just a 3 minute walk from the unit to the ocean. At Dave's recommendation we did our grocery shopping at the Piggly Wiggly in Port St. Joe but they don't carry any alcoholic beverages (not even beer) so we found a package store just 2 blocks down, but I'm pretty sure I saw another package store on the main road onto Cape San Blas. We went out for dinner only one night to Indian Pass Raw Bar and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It was a very relaxing vacation.
This home is stocked with everything that you will need for a fabulous vacation. All kinds of beach toys, chairs, umbrellas, floats, etc. have been shared by the owner. The complex is well appointed and cared for. The views are lovely. The sands and shells and water are incomparable to any other beach in the world.
Having stayed at this property previously, I knew what to expect. However, the redecoration made for a pleasant beach side stay. Decorator inspired room colors complemented the new living room sofas, chair and ottoman. One sofa, a queen sleeper. New comforters and pillow shams on all of the beds. Sufficient bedding and towels.Extra blankets available( and we needed them in December). The kitchen was adequately furnished with enough cookware, china, cutlery to satisfy Rachel Ray. Great laundry equipment! We wanted to steal them and replace ours at home. We even investigate Speed Queen dealers in our area. Another real plus is the south-facing screened deck off the living room. You can see BOTH sunrises and sunsets. The colors are fantastic. Make sure you bring your camera. Oh, just as an aside, we have noticed a marked improvement in the public water quality. It no longer tastes strange.. We have been staying at different locations on Cape San Blas for eleven years and we have experienced a lot of different "beach furniture." All of the chairs and toys for the beach are in great condition. The deck furniture is also in great condition. You don't have to be afraid to sit on any of the chairs Having stayed for a month we got really familiar with this property. It doesn't have those rental quirks and has all the provisions of home. Finally, the owner, Dave Cornish, is very responsive, communicative and helpful. Enjoy your stay, it is well worth it(if we haven't booked the date already).
We had a very relaxing week at A Beach Break. The owner was very helpful with our planning prior to the trip and called early in the week to see if everything was as we were expecting. The unit was clean, well-maintained, and well stocked with kitchen equipment and beach equipment. The Piggly Wiggly in Port St. Joe is very nice. There are also several places to buy good shrimp, etc. that they prepare to go. We only ate dinner out one time. That was at The Grill in Apalachicola. It was very good, especially the gumbo. We would recommend Seacliff Condos and A Beach Break unit to our friends. Actually, we vacationed in one of the other units in 2006.
Perfect pet-friendly beach condo
Our set up was great! Any questions that we had prior to or when we were there were quickly answered! Dave was nice and easy to work with. Hope to return!

I'm pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay and look forward to your return!
Of the many vacation rentals we have stayed in this is the first that didn't provide a small container of dish soap, dishwasher detergent nor a roll of paper towels. These little things go a long way for guests. Otherwise the screened Sinai was magnificent and it was a clean place.

Good idea! We're now providing a guest "starter pack" with a kitchen sponge and sample sizes of coffee, dishwashing liquid, dishwasher detergent and laundry detergent.We're also glad that you enjoyed your late winter week and appreciate your comments. The view from our screened porch is one of our favorite features, too!
