About the owner: Tropical Breeze is owned by 2 families from Atlanta, the Newmans and the Pridemores. Our children went to elementary school together and when we found this great house we formed a partnership. Our kids are much older now and both families have enjoyed many happy days at A Tropical Breeze.
The house is managed by Roni Pridemore
Why this property? The Pridemores heard that Cape San Blas was named the #1 beach in the USA, including Hawaii, in 2002. A trip was immediately scheduled to see the area. A Tropical Breeze was way out of our price range, but we loved it so much we videotaped it and went back to talk to friends and neighbors about a partnership. Fortunately, the Newmans were in the market for investment property and our partnership was formed. The home was first seen on July 3rd, 2002 and we were owners by August 24, 2002. Every time we visit, we fall in love with the house and area all over again. We are also fortunate to have many happy repeat guests.

Our Family’s Favorite Beach Home!
We absolutely loved staying in “A Tropical Breeze.” The home is beautifully decorated and also very comfortable and made us feel right at home. We had 7 adults and 3 children so everyone was well accommodated and all of the beds were very comfortable. There were even bathrooms for every bedroom plus a half bath on the main floor. We loved that there were not only 8 chairs at the dining table but also 5 chairs at the bar right beside the table so everyone was able to eat together. The views were amazing and the decks were so large with lots of comfortable seating. The kitchen has absolutely everything you need! There’s even a pantry that we were able to put our groceries in so we didn’t have to leave everything out on the counters. The elevator helped so much with sending up luggage and groceries. The home has lots of games, cards and dvds for rainy days. There were very nice beach chairs for our use and many beach toys as well. The beach was just steps away and the ocean in that area was amazing. That was the farthest north we had ever stayed on the cape and I couldn’t believe how much nicer the water was. It was so calm that it was like a lake all week and so clear that we could see right through it. Everyone kept saying that this was their favorite house. We had the best vacation ever and can’t wait to stay here again and make many more memories. The owner is so kind and so easy to work with. She even checked on us to make sure we had everything we needed. Thank you so much Mrs. Pridemore for sharing your home with us! We will be back!

The property was gorgeous with terrific views. We did not have the best weather but made the most of it. The owners were very personable and made sure we had everything we needed. They even shared tips on places to go, things to do and places to eat.

I’ve been visiting and vacationing in SW Florida for over 20 years. This was my first visit and stay in the Panhandle and Cape San Blas. We stayed at A Tropical Breeze for 5 nights with immediate family (parent, siblings, children, and grandchildren). The beach house was so spacious and we all had our own bedroom and private bathrooms. The elevator was especially helpful for moving luggage in and out and for my elderly mother to have easy access to go outdoors.The kitchen was fully stocked with all the appliances and dishware and cookware that you will need for making your own meals. There is also a gas grill for cooking outside.I would definitely recommend staying at a Tropical Breeze for your next family vacation. The house sits right on the beach (with a short walk over the dunes to get to it). They have plenty of outdoor chairs for use by the guests and an enclosed lanai on both floors with plenty of seating for relaxation and visiting. The views of the sunset are pretty spectacular also!There is plenty of indoor activities for cooler or rainy days with DVD’s, board games and books.We made such special memories with our family during our stay and look forward to coming back for another visit in the future.

Thanks Tina for your lovely comments and for choosing A Tropical Breeze for your CSB stay. Wishing you the very best on your purchase of a CSB home of your own! Roni
Loved our house!
Our house was so lovely and convenient! All was comfortable and the kitchen was extremely well stocked. The sunsets from the porches were so beautiful and even though the water was cold, we could not have picked a better place to stay for a get-away. Cape San Blas is just beautiful in November and very few people there. We found some great restaurants with outside seating and places to get the best take out. We got bikes to ride, pickle courts and wonderful shells on the beach.The only drawback was we were not prepared for the flies on the beach that time of year. If you are walking in the water, they don't bother you but some days it was difficult to sit on the beach. Other than that, I would recommend this house and Cape San Blas!

I can't rave enough about this wonderful beach house and the awesome location! There were seven of us and we stayed for a week. We loved it so much! - There are tables and many chairs on both decks with nice, clean cushions. The screened-in deck is a safe place for our little one, and the upper deck has a great view (it even has hummingbird feeders). - The spacious bedrooms all have their own bathrooms. The beds were all very comfortable. The master bathroom is incredible -- a huge walk-in shower, a jacuzzi, a large vanity with two sinks, lots of room and lots of sunlight. - The living room has plenty of comfortable seating, gas logs and a big TV. - The dining area has an enormous table! We really put that to good use. - The kitchen looks out over the whole room and out all the windows for wonderful views while cooking. The kitchen is amazingly well stocked with quality equipment -- probably the best stocked kitchen we've ever seen at the Cape, and we've been renting houses there for over 20 years. We like to buy fresh seafood and cook there at the house all week and this is the perfect place for that. - And the elevator... what can I say. No more carrying suitcases and groceries up stairs! Yes! - Outside: plenty of parking space, shower with hot water, a nice Weber gas grill, logs for a beach fire, chairs and picnic table. - A nice boardwalk to the awesome beach, which you begin to feel is your own private beach. - The owner contacted us directly and made sure everything was perfect. Thank you, Roni! - We fell in love with A Tropical Breeze and look forward to staying there again!

The Perfect Vacation!
My wife, three kids, parents, and I rented A Tropical Breeze for a week in July. The home is gorgeous and immaculately maintained with everything you could want for a perfect vacation. The kitchen is well stocked and the elevator is a huge help when moving in/out. The white sand beach is simply beautiful and just steps from the door. Be sure to catch the sun set over the Gulf in the evening - it's amazing! The state park is also an easy walk or bike ride from the house. If you are looking to escape the crowds of most resort towns and unwind on a magnificent beach, then A Tropical Breeze is the ideal place! We cannot wait to return.
