About the Property
Emerald Isle - New renovation spring 2020
Private Heated Pool, Great Gulf Views, an elevator and an awesome layout. There is a great view of the gulf to the west southwest overlooking undeveloped land. You can enjoy the sounds of the surf as you watch the waves lap up onto the White Sand beach from all the decks, in the living room, while enjoying a meal in dining room or from any of the bedrooms. All the main living areas and bedrooms face the Gulf and have large windows and glass doors to enhance the views of the gulf from inside the home.
Not only does Emerald Isle have Great Views of the Gulf of Mexico and beach area to the southwest, after you walk the few steps down to the beach, if you turn left, you can easily find your own private spot for beach day activities.
Emerald provides linens, free wireless internet and long distance.
Located just 1/2 mile from the entrance to St Josephs State Park, it is located in one of the most desirable areas on the Cape.
All four bedrooms face the gulf to enhance the views. There is a Private King Master Suite on the upper floor with it's own private deck. On the main bedroom floor (2nd story) is a new king master and a queen master along with a bedroom furnished with 2 sets of bunks.
The large living and dining area (3rd floor) also face the Gulf and has great views or walk out on the well furnished deck for some fresh air. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you’ll need to enjoy your stay on Cape San Blas famed beaches.
Once you're on the decks and see the views and color of the gulf water, you'll know what inspired the name Emerald Isle.
*Private heated pool is heated from March - Thanksgiving weekend as needed weather permitting.
Very close to the beach and even though 1st tier home has great views as nothing is built to the front left. Great home if you need a golf cart for beach access as it is just a few hundred feet away from the access so you do not have to drive on the main road which is not allowed.
Why Kids Love It
It's the Beach!!!
Cape San Blas FL is a narrow piece of land that juts out into the Gulf of Mexico to form the pristine bay where you can kayak, scallop, fish or watch the dolphins. On the Gulf side white sand beaches and breathtaking sunsets are right in front of you! We are laid back here, no hustle & bustle - come relax!
Attractions Within Walking Distance
Emerald Isle sits on the gulf side just 200 feet from the beach. It is located only 1/2 mile from the entrance of the state park. You can walk or ride your bike along loggerheads trail. Cone Heads is just 1/2 mile and Scallop Cove, Trading Post & St Joe Shrimp Co are within 2 miles.
Rent a Happy Cabana! Less hassle, more relaxation!

Guestbook comments from the owner:
We have rented this house both in January and February and have thoroughly enjoyed our stay! We love the ocean view from all 3 decks, and the close proximity to the beach. We greatly appreciate the elevator when arriving, leaving and grocery shopping! We love the Master bedroom on the top floor with a great view and the ability to hear the ocean! Our Golden Retreiver loves the decks where he can be outside and watch everything! Very peaceful and relaxing! We even got to enjoy the pool this year.
Emerald Isle is a wonderful house, very spacious and clean. Lots of room and great views of the beach. The elevator is a huge plus. We really enjoyed having a private pool and the beach is just a short walk. The house was well stocked. This was our 3rd trip to the Cape and this house is our favorite of all the places we've stayed. It's just a short drive to the trading post for food/groceries, etc. or Coneheads is also very close to grab a meal. We also enjoyed a day trip to Appalachacola for shopping and dinner. Port St Joe is a short drive and we love Joe Mama's pizza- best bruchetta we've ever had. I would recommend this house and Teresa's beach homes! Only problem was 1 week was too short!
We had the best time!!! The home was clean and had every luxury we needed. Great to have the private pool and all the decks. The location is fabulous with the ocean not even 100 feet from the house. We love Coneheads and the small party store has everything plus a wonderful meat selection. We barbequed lunch daily and ventured into St Joes and Mexico Beach for dinner. Also, we ate at the Sand Bucket real good smoked barbeque. The state park at the end is a nice spot to explore. Great time, great home!
My husband and our 2 dogs go to Cape San Blas every year. this year we stayed at Emerald Isle. we have never had such a wonderful time. the home is beautiful. It is next to the water, the views were so wonderful. The photos do not show how close the shore really is. The pools is so nice and we enjoyed the elevator much more than we anticipated. The floor plan of the home is so conducive to entertaining. We will never stay anywhere else. The dogs love the beach and decks. They said they want to return too. The outside shower was great to wash their paws..they didn't like that..Oh well. They don't like that in Nashville.
This was by far, the most beautiful, cleanest, well decorated, stocked vacation home we have EVER stayed in! We couldn't believe our eyes when we walked into the first floor....huge laundry area, cart to put things on, plenty of room for drying racks for towel. The elevator was perfect for unloading and dividing up luggage to each floor. The next floor with three bedrooms was roomy, perfect for our 3 kids with the bunk beds, and the closet was so large it was ideal for our "nursery" with the pack n play and our little guy!! The main floor has the nicest kitchen with a TON of supplies, huge fridge....nothing feels cramped in the least!! We had 5 adults, 4 kids, and a small dog, and I don't think we ran into each other once because of space! The master upstairs was just gorgeous and the shower was used by all it was so nice! Also the service was great...we had a special need for the pool to be shock treated immediately prior to arrival, and this was taken care of without any inconvience/hassle!! Everything was so clean...better than my own home...and there was plenty available for us to use during the week (for sweeping up loose sand, etc). I can't say enough good things....perfect vacation spot!
Emerald Isle was an absolutely wonderful vacation beach house rental. Everything my family could have wanted or needed. The home was exactly as pictured in person. Lovely décor, great amenities, lots of room, comfort of home with an amazing view and access to the beach. Emerald Isle was exceptionally clean and well maintained. The elevator and private pool was a huge bonus. Theresa's Beach Homes team were a pleasure to work with and made the entire process seamless. I would highly recommend them to anyone that is looking for the perfect rental and tranquil beaches. Thank you so much for providing a much needed vacation and making it a dream come true!!!!! My fuzzy babies thank you as well. They are happiest running the white sands and smelling the fresh ocean breeze. Look forward to next year!
We had a perfect family vacation at Emerald Isle! Each morning we were greeted by dolphins playing in the Gulf. The kids loved the bunk beds, we loved the Master on the top floor and all of the tasteful decor. We all loved the pool! The beach was a short, easy walk and we enjoyed finding hundreds of shells. It was just what we needed! Thanks for the details on TS Karen before our arrival also. We'll be back!
I can't say enough great things about our vacation in Cape San Blas! My family and I had a fantastic time...and our 3 dogs REALLY enjoyed the beach walks everyday.
We stayed at the Emerald Isle home for our week stay. It felt just like being at home! Very comfortable, clean, well stocked with everything you need for cooking. And the pool was very nice for our afternoon hang outs.
The beach is so big you could literally walk for miles. We did a lot of walking and shell collecting. We couldn't get over how it made you feel as if you are on a deserted island as you barely run into other people. Lovely, lovely, big beach!
It was so nice to sit and listen to the waves and watch the pelicans. We also had a treat with dolphins swimming by everyday.
Each evening we would go for our sunset walk on the beach. One evening we had a special treat as we saw a 5 foot hammerhead shark swim by. The water depth was 4-5 feet deep where it was. It was awesome!
Teresa's Beach homes, has been such a pleasure to deal with and made our booking so easy and stress free....even with all of my endless questions, LOL!
We have already booked our vacation for next year... Can't wait!!
We loved every minute of this vacation. The house is even better than the photos, and the location is great. Our dog loved the ocean during the day, and sitting on the deck on an evening, as did we.
We recommend eating at Cone Heads, just round the corner and also Joe Mama's Wood Fired Pizza in Cape St. Joe.
Our stay at Emerald Isle beach house this past week (March 5-12) was amazing! The ocean view was stunning and the beach house was beautiful. The kids enjoyed playing in the surf every day and we loved taking our golden retriever for long walks along the beach each morning. We saw dolphins and pelicans -very exciting!! It was 70+ degrees each day:) Having our own private pool was an extra bonus! I would highly recommend this rental and Terri (Theresa's Beach Homes) was excellent -answering all of our questions in a pleasant and efficient manner. The next time we make the trek to Florida we will definitely be renting this house again.
This home was in great condition. All appliances worked and the kitchen was well stocked. When I booked this house, I thought the view would be blocked with homes. I was surprised to find that we had unobstructed views of 50% of the beach and water. We were able to see the dolphins playing. I also appreciate the transparency in fees - what you advertise is what we pay. I will definitely be a repeat renter.

Emerald Isle is a beautiful place to stay. Plenty of room for everyone and loved the main living area. The kitchen was absolutely beautiful and the deck was wonderful to sit out morning and night. Very very clean! Thanks for having us!

The house and location was fantastic and fully equipped with everything!
We had a great stay at Emerald Isle. The home was laid out great for large families and the views were amazing. Every level had a deck and then a grilling area on lower level with a swing not to mention the pool which was also nice to come home after a long day at beach and cool off. Also had the tall Adirondack chairs that were great to sit on decks and look at the beautiful views of ocean. Kitchen was stocked better than anywhere we have stayed in 40 years! We felt like we were at home. So sad to leave but we will definitely be back. Teresa was great to work with as well. Frist time to Cape San Blas and loved it. No high rises and mainly just beach houses. What a quaint area.

Thank you both for such a great review! We were happy to have you and look forward to having you back in the future!
I would highly recommend Emerald Isle and Teresa’s Beach Homes. This was our second year booking with Teresa’s. The house was perfect and so was the beautiful beach. Thank you, for the wonderful memories!

Dana, thank you for your continued support! We are thankful to have you back and look forward to having you in the future.
We enjoyed our stay at Emerald Isle. The home was lovely, the pool was nice. There is still some construction going on in the area due to hurricane Michael, but we had a wonderful time. The beaches on Cape San Blas are breath taking, beautiful white sand. We enjoyed the sunsets from the balcony of the home. We were able to attend an opening of a sea turtle nest. The kids were very excited to see that. The kitchen was well stocked. We toured the light houses in the area and went out to the state park one day were there were many shells to be had. We would recommend this home.

Amazing Beach Home!
The location is perfect. You can see and hear the ocean from all three decks! Elevator is a bonus! The house is equipped with everything needed for a great family vacation. The pool is another pleasure for the family following a day at the ocean. Don't forget to rent a golf cart for driving on the beach. Teresa and her kind family are always there to answer questions, give advice/ recommendations, and fulfill requests immediately. Our family looks forward to our return to Emerald Isle!

Family Vacation 2019
We loved our stay at Emerald Isle. We have been coming to the area for over 13 years. We love staying on the cape. We had a great view and really liked having the ability to drive down and drop our beach things off. The house is very nice. The kitchen has everything that we needed. We love Teresa's Beach Homes. They are great people and are always very helpful. We hope to stay here again next summer.

Great To Be Back!
We were the first to return to Emerald Isle in March. I was with my Mother, her two sisters and their husbands. The couples own a beach home within sight of Emerald Isle so it was the perfect location as they could oversee any work being performed on their home. Streets being cleaned and refuse picked up by large trucks all week - the cape is looking good! So much more work to be done by home owners. We ate most meals at home and had everything we needed for preparation. Beds were very comfortable and a new sofa was delivered that week. House very clean. Elevator got a great workout! It was a wonderful week with perfect weather. The beaches are wide and clean although many of the dunes are gone. The stores are open and serving customers. The downtown PSJ restaurants were packed with visitors. Great Shrimp from St. Joe Shrimp company! Went to the State Park twice. Nice walk around to see the Eagle's Harbor break in the land - camp sights and cabins on other side. Very surprised to see so many birds on the beach and at the State Park. Many thanks to Teresa's Beach Homes for a great week!

Amy, We were so happy to have you back so that your family could check on their homes. Thank you for your kind words and we hope to be able to host you again in the future.
We stayed at Emerald Isle with another family. The kids' ages were 4, 4, 6, 7, 8. The home was very kid friendly - tastefully decorated but I wasn't terrified my children would break something. The views were spectacular - like being ocean front because of the vacant lot adjacent to the property. Every morning was spent drinking coffee and listening to the waves followed by making breakfast in the amazing kitchen. Our families love food and have dietary restrictions so we made all our meals in the beautiful kitchen that was more than large enough to accommodate our needs. The elevator sure came in handy for hauling all our food up to the 3rd level kitchen! The beach was gorgeous and quiet. Many sand masterpieces were made and we were all delighted to see dolphins playing nearby one afternoon! The warm outdoor shower was much appreciated afterward and the pool was very convenient for entertaining the children - with one adult supervising - while we made lunch. The living room was a great set up for our pre-Endgame Marvel movie marathon! There was plenty of space for us in the comfortable bedrooms. Would definitely stay here again!

Emerald Isle was a super cozy beach house. Although we were not beach front, it felt like we were. Excellent views from every room especially the master suite. Beach access was incredibly easy. The house was very clean and had everything we needed. I love that there were plenty of bathrooms and teens had their privacy. Owners are incredibly nice and very helpful. We will visit again!

Kristen, thank you so much for your review. We look forward to having your family back for many years to come!
Our stay at Emerald Isle was a vacation to remember. It was our first time staying in Cape San Blas and it was a perfect trip. We enjoyed watching the dolphins play and the sunsets on the balcony. The beach had easy access . The beach wasn’t crowded at all. Felt like we almost had it to ourselves.Also the private pool was great for us especially during my grandsons nap time. The house was clean and cozy. It had everything thing we needed. Kitchen was well stocked. My daughter and I would put something on the grill for dinner and enjoy a beverage and a chat down on the swings. We had one issue with the central air one afternoon and Teresa sent someone right over to fix the problem. It was a wonderful trip.
