About the Property

Horizon is located in the upscale & gated Hibiscus community next to Rish State Park; and has absolutely breathtaking unrestricted. This home was built by owners who have 30 plus years of home ownership on Cape San Blas and they have spared no expense in building their latest Dream Gulf Front Home by Windoff Construction.
This upscale home has very high end kitchen appliances, including a chef quality 36 inch gas cooktop; and the Expansive curved wrap around decks with stainless steel railings on both upper floors give you sweeping 180 degree views of the Gulf and our white sand beaches.
Horzion's layout is as follows: Entry floor includes the laundry room and an elevator for getting those groceries and luggage to the living room and kitchen level . The next level is the living / dining and kitchen floor, and includes a half bath. This floor has a curved Gulf Front wall full of glass offering outstanding 180 degree views of the gulf, the beach and beautiful sunsets.
Upper Floor has 3 bedrooms - 1 gulf front Queen with full bath, Another Queen bedroom with full bath and the 3rd bedroom with 2 twin beds and full bath, a private work den area if you must work some while on vacation. A Gulf Front observation room with mini fridge and unbelievable views of the Gulf, The Beach and Sunsets from inside the comfort of the home(you will never want to leave this room!) There is also another spacious curved deck on the upper floor. Pictures simply do not do this vacation rental home justice.
Gulf Front with incredible views in a gated upscale community. At the moment this is the only rental home on this lone quiet street. The observation room in this home has views as good as the decks and it's air conditioned!
Cape San Blas is a gorgeous pierce of narrow land that sticks out into the Gulf of Mexico. There is the gulf on one side and the pristine bay on the other. The Cape runs north to south so sitting on your deck you will be view due west with spectacular sunsets that will take your breath away.

This home was definitely beautiful! We absolutely loved it. The kitchen was top of the line and had everything you could possibly need! The house is in a gated subdivision with about 6 other homes that I don't think are rentals so it was very quiet- we only saw 2 other families using our boardwalk the entire week. The views were amazing and I would definitely stay here again!!! The only things that I wish it had are a king size bed in at least one of the bedrooms, an ice machine and a set of drawers in each room for more storage. We noticed after several days that there is a separate bedroom and bath- (we called it the secret room) that the owners decided to keep private-we happened to notice it from outside on the deck. If this room is every opened up it would be really nice for the adults to have a separate room on another level away from the kids :) Overall I can't recommend this place enough!! And Teresa and Terri are great to work with!! KC TN
We had a chance to stay at this beautiful home for a week of relaxation. It is exactly as described. It' was clean and well appointed. You have nice separation from neighbor's and the views are unmatched on the beach. The furnishings are beautiful and comfortable. The beds are super comfortable. Would suggest this place to anyone wanting some privacy but at the same time be close to everything.
This was my families first year coming to the Cape, and I have to say it is by far our favorite beach vacation! It was so nice to get away from the crowds of the more commercialized beaches. This home was absolutely spectacular inside and out and very clean (which is so important to me). The kitchen had everything you could need to cook a great meal (which we did almost every night). The beach is super quiet and plenty of room for the kiddos to play. Another review mentioned "the secret bedroom", and we also noticed this room from outside on the deck. I suppose the owners want to keep it private (I can't blame for that), but I also agree if this room is ever opened it would be amazing to have a true master suite. We hope to return to Horizons next summer! Also thanks to Terri and Teresa, you guys were awesome in helping us book this home at the last minute!!
This home is outstanding! We have always stayed across from beach planet but this home is our favorite! We had nobody to the right of us for as far as you could see on the beach! VERY SECLUDED! Having the beach cart and the boardwalk right beside us is great along with the gated community which was maybe 5 homes! The decks are unreal and views are wonderful. Kids LOVED IT! The only thing I wouldn't give 5* rating would be simple fixes. The tv's in the bedrooms should sit higher so you can see them a little better. And in the Master I would like to have a King size bed. Other than that I wouldn't expect anything to change! Will definatley TRY to stay here for future vacations if I can book in time. Inside the home was BEAUTIFUL!! Very well put together. Top notch furnishing. So many windows you could look out of any room and see the Ocean. Pool was nice, nobody was at it the entire time since we were the only ones in the community. Daughter (14) and son (2) lived the beach to much to stay at the pool. Can go on and on about this home.
This was our 4th year visiting the Cape and our first year staying at the Horizon house. Upon arrival we were amazed! The home is beautiful and the location was great! The elevator was nice for unloading and loading. The house was very clean. We enjoyed the beach everyday and the views were outstanding! Teresa and Terri were great to deal with and we had no issues while visiting. We look forward to visiting again soon!
Would I return? In a heart beat!. In fact, returning next year.
Horizon is located on a spectacular section of the Cape with large natural sand dunes.. The wrap around deck offers views off the gulf and bay, A second floor seating area, or an observation room, offers outstanding views of the gulf. It's a perfect place to watch the sunset. The home is well appointed and super quiet inside. The beach is just a few steps away via a neighborhood boardwalk. The neighborhood has a beautiful pool and pavilion that is a few minutes walk from Horizon.

Horizon was perfect in every way. From the easy boardwalk to the beach to the pool being a 2 min walk away, it was exactly what our family needed. The home itself was beautiful and offered views and sunsets that even left our three children in awe. We will be looking to come back very soon!

Great place to stay!
If you enjoy no hassle booking and no hidden fees give Terri and Teresa a call. The house we booked was beautiful with an unobstructed view of the gulf! Being an old Navy man I particularly enjoyed seeing the “green flash” again! If you don’t know what that is it’s as the sun sets the very thinnest edge before it drops below the horizon turns brilliant green. Do stop at the grocery store before you check in as groceries are very limited on the cape.

Love this place!!
This was our second visit for our family at Horizon so you know we love it there. Everything is so clean and there is never a problem. Can’t wait for our next visit!!

Gary, thank you for your continued support of our business and our area. We are so glad you love Horizon and hope to have you back again.
We had a wonderful stay in this home! It’s well appointed & had everything we needed! The community boardwalk was rarely used by others, as well as the community pool. The handful of times we went to the pool, we had it to ourselves. The view was beautiful from the balconies! The only thing I would change would be that the outside shower was actually enclosed where others couldn’t see in. We had a great stay!

We were a little worried that our beloved cape would still be down and out because of the hurricane,but were pleasantly surprised to find our usual house, Horizon, and Cape San Blas were in great shape! As usual the house had all the space and amenities we’ve come to expect. It was spotless and so conducive to our family’s needs. Some of the protecting dunes were a little washed away by the storm, so we felt like the beach view was even a little better. Had just as much fun on our rental boat on St. Joe’s bay too! Will definitely be back! P.S. We DID miss Indian Pass Raw Bar. I think they’re reopening in Sept though!
Stayed: August 2019Submitted: September 05, 2019
Thank you for your wonderful review. The original raw bar is still closed, but the one in town is open. So, it is possible to get your raw bar fix in town. We're glad you all came back to town to help support the recovery and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
We loved everything about this house! The location is great also having the pool was a bonus since the water was rough a few days. The only thing I would change about this house is at least in one bathroom add a pull down shower head to help people with small children. It was definitely a pain to get my three year old washed off everyday but it wouldn’t stop me from staying here. Just a heads up for people with small kids that there is no bath. I just didn’t pay attention to that when I booked. Also this area we basically had the beach to ourselves which was very nice. I can’t wait to hopefully stay here again next year!
Stayed: August 2019Submitted: August 26, 2019
Kristi, Thank you for your review. We actually do have plans to replace the shower heads to the detachable models for not only children, but cleaning reasons. It makes it much easier for both purposes. For others reading this review Horizon offers 3 bathrooms that are pretty much identical. They are large walk-in custom built glass showers. This home, indeed, does not have a tub, but most of our other homes do if there is anyone reading that cannot be without one for a week.
Would I return? In a heart beat!
Overall, my experience at Horizon was excellent The home is easy on the eyes, full of natural light, nicely appointed, with outstanding views of the gulf and St.Joe bay. Horizon is steps from a beautiful stretch of the Cape that was ideal for relaxing and soaking in the the natural beauty of the area. We enjoyed the nearby pool and the comfortable furniture there.Terrie, and Teresa were very pleasant to work with and provided assistance in renting a cabana from Happy Cabana. They setup and removed chairs and cabana each day.

This is the fourth year in a row we have stayed in Horizon because we love this home and its location. The home is super nice and the community is very quiet. I can’t say enough about Terri, she is always quick to respond and very helpful! Teresa’s Beach Homes are the best!
Stayed: June 2019Submitted: July 05, 2019
We stayed at Horizon for a week and it was truly an amazing place!! We’ve stayed in many really nice beach houses, but this was the nicest. You feel like you are living in the Restoration Hardware beach catalog
Stayed: June 2019Submitted: June 04, 2019
We routinely stay on the Cape at least once during the summer. Horizon is a great house and is very private. Beaches are uncrowded and the house layout and modern decor are just what we enjoy. We had "Chamber of Commerce" weather during our stay and the west facing view makes for wonderful sunsets. Highly recommended.

Mike, we were so happy to have you in and back at the cape. Thank you for your support!
Beautiful home with ocean views.
This house is very well laid out with nice dining table inside and out. Beautiful sitting room on second floor. The three bedrooms are each spacious with their own bath - the space and amenities not all invested in one master suite - great for three couples.

Dianne, thank you so much for your review. We enjoyed having you!
The best of the best
I have been coming to the cape for years and found this place last year! I thought I had died and gone to heaven! This house is beyond amazing...the windows, the views, the clean beautiful interior and unbelievable deck! I cried the day we had to leave. The cape does not disappoint and this house was the icing on the cake! Thank you Teri and Teresa! You made our experience at the cape even more memorable! I look forward to my many trips booked in 2019!!! #horizonisnumber1

Hey Kim, thank you so much for your thoughtful review. We look forward to your upcoming reservation and hope you find Horizon just as beautiful as you left it.
A BLESSED WEEK OF RELAXATION!
My husband and I were very Blessed to spend a week at Horizon reconnecting and celebrating our 27th Anniversary. We were Blessed to have our friends also join us for a couple of days and another friend and her husband stop by for a visit and watch a sunset with us. Our favorite things were the location of the house, the observation room and deck, the beautiful beach and sunsets, swimming in the pool and the ocean and watching the stars at night. Teresa was great to deal with and provided all the information we needed and made the renting process easy. We love the Cape which is our home away from home and I will definitely rent from Teresa’s Beach Homes again and recommend the rental home Horizon to my friends.
