Cape San Blas FL is such a treasure, come see for yourself why. Many find us and never want to leave. Visiting multiple times a year or buying a beach home for themselves. It's not commercialized - No highrises, no chain stores, oh well "no stores" other than 3 or 4 on the Cape otherwise you have to drive 20 minutes to the small town of Port St Joe - It's a great place, I so love it here and I bet you will to!

Teresa's Beach Homes
Why this property? Very unique home sitting on a large parcel with privacy which has become very sought after. There are very few places with this kind of privacy.
Calendar last updated: May 23, 2020
I must say that this home is one of my favorites after visiting the Cape for roughly the last 15 years. The home was guarded from Michael by the large dunes in front. This home is an ideal place to relax due to the seclusion of the property. Will book again.

Jason, Thank you for supporting our area and your review. We thank you so much and hope to have you back soon.
Bella Vista- A luxury stay
Our stay in Bella Vista was Wonderful. Luxury meets Character is how I sum up this house. To be able to get away and not have to worry about any details was just what we needed. The accommodations were perfect. Fires on the beach, star filled skies, the true beauty of nature. Cape San Blas is honestly a blessing my family will remember for years to come. I haven’t met a person that has stayed in Cape San Blas that regrets running from the crowded beach tourist traps only to enjoy simple nature at its finest. Bella Vista won’t disappoint you!

Cape San Blas is still awesome!
Hurricane Michael was no match for the Cape. Still the greatest beaches anywhere. We chose Bella Vista as a second choice when searching for a vacation home after the storm. What a surprise. This home definitely takes first place. Everything we needed was there. Great home and the perfect location. We had an awesome week despite the rough weather to start it off. Cape San Blas is as beautiful and relaxing as ever. Bella Vista was perfect for my family. We found the house clean, well equipped, and as comfortable as being home.This home is great for any family. While we had no issues while there I am confident the friendly folks at Teresa"s would have taken care of any problems. And did I mention "the perfect location". It felt as if we had our own private beach. Private and hidden in the dunes yet close enough to feel a part of the beach. Powder white sandy beaches as beautiful as always. Fishing was good. Water was warm. We had sea turtles visit on the beach. We had deer visit in the yard. The great people who live here have done an amazing job in bringing the Cape back to all it's glory. There is still a lot of work needed but they have come a long way. We are looking forward to 2020. May even make it back before then. Who knows. A great big THANK YOU to the fine folks at Teresa's. The McDuffie Family

our favorite house on the cape
My husband, daughter, son in law, and I had a fabulous week on the cape in Bella Vista. Our two grand pups had a ball too. This marks 38 years of vacationing together on the cape for my husband and me. It's our favorite place and where we plan to retire in a few years. Post Hurricane Michael, there were changes, and some of our favorite restaurants were temporarily or permanently closed which was sad to see. However, most of the places we've frequented for years were open and great as ever. We ate at The Owl ,Up the Creek, and Up the Stairs in Apalach. In PSJ, Provisions and the fairly new Uptown Raw Bar, my fave. On the cape we thoroughly enjoyed The PSJ Seafood Co. for lunch Skully's is great for low country boil. Peachy's has yummy seafood tacos. We've already booked Bella Vista for the same week next year, our fifth time in that house. BTW, dealing with Teresa and Terri is great!

Better than Ever!
We have stayed at Bella Vista many times over the past ten years and I can start off by saying the home came through Hurricane Michael like a champ. This is really an exceptional property with direct access to the beautiful beach and views in every direction. The home is nicely decorated with plenty of room for a large family and all the items you will need for meal prep, etc. One of the things we like best is that the home is quite private from other homes and we usually have our section of the beach all to ourselves. At the same time, we have met so many friendly people walking on the beach. The house is located very close to the state park for hiking and nature walks, and just a quick drive to the Trading Post for groceries, booze, ice cream, donuts and so much more. Bella is truly a special place and we will visit again and again.

Kay, we are so glad that you found Bella to be just as perfect as your previous visits! We are so thankful that you have come back and rented with us year after year. We look forward to having you again soon! Thank you for all of your kindness.
Another delightful vacation
This is a awesome, private rental on the beach. The views are amazing and when you are on the beach frequently no one else will be around you. The home has everything you could need for a great vacation.

Bella Vista is a beautiful home with breathtaking views from every room. This was our second year staying at Bella and our third year on the Cape. We absolutely love all of the privacy this property affords. There is room enough to spread out for large families which only adds to the level of relaxation and enjoyment of vacationing at this home. There are so many nooks and porches you can literally find a new favorite spot to sit and relax or take in the indescribable beauty of the property and glistening ocean or the stars at night.It is such a special place. We plan on returning as often as we can.
