About the Property
Max Occupancy 10, 4 bedroom, 4.5 bath
Avalon is a 1st tier/Gulf View home that is only 175 feet to the beach via boardwalk. The Gulf Views are very good from inside or from one of the three well-furnished decks.
Avalon was our personal home that we lived in full time before building our current home. It has high end appliances, nice high quality carpet, custom tile, numerous smart electronics, and more. As with all of our rental family of homes, we furnish them nicely and keep them upgraded so you will have a very nice and comfortable home away from home for your vacation stay.
Avalon is located on the south side of Rish Park so there is a half of a mile of undeveloped beach to the northeast. It is a great place to take the 4 legged family members on a walk, let the kids ghost crab hunt in the evenings, or just wander off to and find your own quiet stretch of beach to enjoy during your stay with us.

Guestbook comments from the owner:
My family spent a wonderful week at this beautiful beachhome this summer. The pictures on the internet really don't do this place justice. It is really wonderful. Everything you need is here, all you need are groceries. We really enjoyed every minute. Hope to visit again.. God Bless
Thank you for sharing your home with us. Your house is absolutely beautiful, not to mention how wonderfully it is located on the beach! The views are spectacular! Between the home and the beach, our vacation gave us the much needed relaxation and fun! The daily visits from "Flipper and family" were equally fun! We hope to be back several times before next year's "family vacation"!
Thank You for the wonderful vacation. everyone enjoyed your beautiful home,the dolphins and the white sand beach. We hope to come and enjoy the Cape again next year. A perfect place for a family get away.
This house and location are beautiful! We loved waking up to dolphins and ending our day with gorgeous sunsets! The kids especially enjoyed the bunk beds and their own TV in their room! The Cape and this house are tops on our list!
My husband and I with our two pups spent a lovely week at Avalon in April for our 30th Anniversary. The home was gorgeous and had every amenity for us to use and then some. The views were breathtaking and the pool was just fabulous. We had a very pleasant and relaxing week and were so sad when it was over. We hope to come back soon.
beautiful! relaxing! everything we needed/wanted was right there. we're coming back.
We loved our stay at many things that were just right...The pool deck and pool are so wonderful to have right out your door..All the bedrooms were spacious and plenty of towels..I loved the kitchen...very well stocked and the appliances were amazing. SO MUCH ROOM!...Would go back in a heartbeat.
We love spending our winter months in Avalon - it has everything you'd ever need. Love the location - couldn't be better. Our second year and already looking forward to next year. You can't go wrong! Teresa's homes are the best!
What a great week on the Cape! Teresa's Beach Homes never disappoints! We loved Avalon. Incredible views and sunsets. Close walk to beach. Home has everything you need for a great week at the beach! Highly recommend!
After my first visit to Avalon in 2011 I was hooked! I have since made it our annual beach trip! The house is perfectly located just a short walk down the board walk to the beach with a GREAT view from the porch for sunset and plenty of rooms so no one feels crowded! The beach itself is soft, clean, and not overly crowded to the point where you feel like its your own personal beach! I couldn't ask for a better house or a better beach! And the stars at night are unlike anywhere else! Truly amazing! Will be back again this year!

Our 5th trip to the cape, second stay with Teresa's Beach Homes. Could not have asked for anything more. By far the nicest place we have stayed. Loved the view and short walk to the beach. Plan to stay here again next summer. Wonderful people to work with.

This is our third stay with Teresa’s Beach Homes, second time in Avalon. Avalon is a beautiful 4 story home with a private pool and gorgeous views of the ocean. It had everything we needed and then some. Our two pups enjoyed the beach and the elevator was very helpful since one of our babies has arthritis really bad and stairs are difficult for her. Teresas Beach Homes care about their homes and the Cape and everything was immaculate. I wish we could come and stay in one of their homes every year. Our week was very relaxing and it was pure bliss to walk our dogs on the beach every evening.

Stunning & Peaceful
I brought my elderly mom and my sister along with my 2 year old Bichon Frisée. I had not been on a vacation in 5 years nor had I been to Cape San Blas. The home (Avalon) was more than I’d expected. Everything you need on top of lovely views . 7 days of gorgeous weather, views and evening walks on the beach was just what I needed . You won’t be disappointed if you stay at the Avalon. Close to a nice small grocery store and fresh seafood. I’ll definitely come back in the near future . I’ve been home 2 days and miss my morning walks on the stunning beach . My neighbors will be staying at the Avalon in December after my telling them about how wonderful it is . Oh they’ve invited me to go along

Wonderful pet-friendly beach home with private pool and beautiful beach views.
Avalon was originally beach-front and was built at an angle to face directly into the setting sun. A couple of houses of houses have been built in front of her in the last 10 years, but the angle still allows for spectacular beach/gulf views. Officially listed as a 4-bedroom, there's a 5th room on the second floor with a trundle bed that sleeps 2. With amenities such as an outside heated shower, fully stocked kitchen, boardwalk to the beach, private pool and elevator this really is a great beach rental. Avalon sustained some damage during Hurricane Michael, but all that has been repaired and the beaches were debris-free. Finally, we've rented at least 5 houses on Cape San Blas and Avalon is, without question, our favorite.

PERFECT! SEE YOU IN 2020
I just wanted to start by saying thank you. We have been an every year visitor to Mexico Beach. Needless to say, our normal vacation home was destroyed by Hurricane Michael in 2018. We were worried that we were not going to find another home that would come close to what we were used to. We have fur children that mean as much to us as our real children. We just knew we would not be able to find a home that would suit our needs and our wants. Boy were we wrong! I'm so glad we got in contact with Theresa's Beach Homes. Terri made us feel like family, and assured us that we would not regret coming out to the Cape. I truly believe that this was thy best family vacation we have ever had on the "forgotten coast". The Avalon by far exceeds every expectation that we had going into a new vacation home. I cannot thank you and your family for everything you supplied for us. My family didn't want for anything. The people who operates business's on the Cape treated us like we were locals and old friends. You have a new customer for life, we will be contacting you in the next month or so to book this again. Thank you Terri, look forward to talking to you soon.

Perfect house for the perfect trip! We had a great stay at the Avalon. Great views, easy walk to beach (closer than pics appear) and loved the pool! Comfortable beds & furniture. Having the elevator was an amazing bonus especially getting luggage up the stairs. Management company was beyond helpful & attentive for any question we had. Would definitely use them again & intend to rent this property again!!

Absolutely perfect set up! Loved it!
This was our family's first trip to CSB and we chose the area so that we could bring our dogs with us on vacation. We rented the Avalon house and it was just a perfect spot. It's a beautiful house and has everything you would need. We enjoyed purchasing fresh seafood from St. Joe's Shrimp Co. a few nights and grilled dinner at home; the kitchen was very well stocked for putting a good meal together. The beds in the house are very comfortable and the house was very clean and nicely decorated. My favorite part of this trip was the amazing sunsets that we would enjoy from our deck (great Adirondack chairs also!). The walk to the beach is so easy and the pool is a great spot. We just truly enjoyed staying here and exploring the Cape. They are working hard to rebuild after the hurricane and good progress is being made. We had plenty to do and enough conveniences close by (the Trading Post has groceries and everything you need -- even fresh cut meat--- we got INCREDIBLE filet mignons from them!) I would recommend this house and area-- -they are grateful for tourists and the support you give them by vacationing there. You won't be sorry! We will be back for sure.

Karen I am so glad you and the pups got to enjoy a week at the beach! It was so night speaking with you and I thoroughly enjoyed the pictures of the pups birthday! Thank you and I hope to see you back soon.
Perfect beach vacation..
This was our third stay at the Avalon at Cape San Blas, it never disappoints. Plenty of room, well equipped kitchen, warm pool in early spring, and very clean upon our arrival. We love the short walk to the beach and watching the sun sets from the deck. Our favorite eating places Skully’s and seafood market, were better than ever! We love going to the Cape!

Sandy, it's always a pleasure to have you stay with us. We are thankful for your support and look forward to helping you with many vacations to come.
Avalon - After the storm - A wonderful stay.
I was moved to this property instead of my original rental after the storm and circumstances created changes. It was wonderful. The elevator made moving in and out so much easier and since I have to carry my 20 lb. dog up/down stairs, it was easier on my back and knees for sure! It has a dream kitchen area with everything you could possibly need. The owners have thought about everything (except a coffee grinder, but I brought my own). The living room/dining room are spacious, accommodating and comfortable for . There are decks on each level which face the beach and you can hear the waves against the shore when you fall to sleep at night. The place required some repairs from the storm damage while I was there, but workers were considerate and no problems. All of the bedrooms are well furnished and spacious. Having televisions (6) in every room allows guests privacy and personal space. Teri was very helpful and answered all my questions. Thanks for the great vacation out of the polar vortex for 6 weeks!

Lois, I am so glad to have met you! All of our winter renters have been so good to us through the years and I hope to work something out and find you a place for 2021!!! Thank you for supporting us and your patience through everything. We really enjoyed having you as one an honorary first guest back!
Wonderful family vacation
We returned to the Cape San Blas area after vacationing on St. George Island for the last few years and it surely didn’t disappoint! It was such a nice home with everything we needed, including a fabulous pool which we gave a workout!!! It was so peaceful and the beach area so close and convenient we didn’t leave the house much. Excellent fresh seafood markets were nearby, ice cream shops, groceries, liquor stores...everything we needed. We will definitely make this our vacation spot from now on. Teresa and her staff are the best!!!

Avalon was awesome. CSB incredible! We love the Cape m!
Avalon House is a beautiful, wonderfully maintained home located in gorgeous location of Cape San Blas that has everything you could need/want. The private pool was an especially nice/appreciated treat. They even had an incredible about of beach chairs and toys in the storage room! We enjoyed an incredible vacation here. Can’t beat the dog friendly beach and community! Out dog was able to go with us to the outdoor decks of local restaurants and he LOVED the beach. Easily 5 star rating here. We WILL be back.

Beautiful, relaxing Cape San Blas and Avalon
Our family stayed at Avalon during scalloping season 2018 (early September in this case) and had a fabulous time. The weather was beautiful and the water still very warm this time of year. Avalon is a beautiful home, with a boardwalk leading directly to the beach and a small private pool that was perfect for our young granddaughters. This was our second stay at Avalon and the house was as beautiful as we remembered. There has been some construction since our last visit that has obstructed some of the beach view, but we could still see dolphins feeding in the Gulf from the main balcony. The home is nicely furnished and well-equipped with large balconies and an elevator (very important when unloading all the groceries and other things you’ll need for a stay on the Cape). Tip: Try to bring as much as you can for your visit because it’s an hour round-trip to the nearest “big” grocery store in Port St. Joe…time you don’t want to lose. The Cape Trading Post and Scallop Cove convenience stores on the Cape do a pretty good job of stock the essentials, which will also help save you some time. Avalon and Cape San Blas are dog-friendly which means the whole family can come and enjoy a CSB vacation. We have stayed in many of Teresa's other homes over the last 9 years and will continue to do so. We can’t get enough of the Cape and morning coffee and beautiful sunsets on the balcony are what we dream of when we are not there. Thank you Teresa for sharing your beautiful homes.

Perfect for our family!
This house was perfect for our family. We are a family of 8 adults, 2 small children, and 2 small dogs. This place was very accommodating for all of us. My in-laws (who are in their 80's) were with us and my Mother-In-Law just had her third ankle surgery a few months ago. With the elevator she was able to go wherever she wanted to go, even the pool had steps that were easy for her to get in and out. She enjoyed doing her therapy in the pool and loved being able to get in with ease. The kitchen had everything we needed, even a crock pot and an electric skillet. The kitchen size was perfect for all of us girls to get in there and prepare the food without bumping into each other. Lots of storage space, counter space, and a nice pantry to store our food in. And believe me, with all of us, we had lots of food. Haha Loved the grill too, we grilled several nights while there. The view from the deck is amazing! My in-laws especially enjoyed sitting and looking at the view. The house had so many little things to help make the most our of our vacation. And it was a vacation to remember and we can't wait to go back next year. Honestly I'm hesitant to leave such a honest raving review because I don't want it to be reserved when we're trying to go back. Haha But you won't be disappointed staying here. It's perfect!
