Dune Rise - Great family beach home 100 yards off the beach and close to pool

Located in: Port St Joe
August 2019 - We're back after Hurricane Michael, booking dates starting August 31, including Labor Day Week. We're planning some additional upgrades this fall but will open up weeks after Oct. 15 once we have a schedule for upgrade work. All 2020 dates are available for booking now. Please note one remaining issue from Michael: There is some damaged tile at the bottom of the entry stairs (doesn't affect access).

Dune Rise is an updated, stylish and spacious 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath townhouse sitting just 100 yards off the beach and close to the pool in the SeaCliffs community of Cape San Blas. As our family's vacation home, we've made it comfortable and accommodating for guests as well. When you book with us, you will receive personal one-on-one attention from the time you book until you arrive home.

Beautiful and unobstructed gulf views from three large covered balconies bring the sights and sounds of our sugar-sand beach right to your back door. Relax on the uncrowded beaches of Cape San Blas' peaceful northern end. Cool off in the large SeaCliffs pool. Explore the adjacent St. Joseph's Peninsula State Park. Kayak on the bay. Explore Apalachicola and Port St. Joe. A trip to Cape San Blas is a chance to get away from it all and discover a whole other world.

And keep the comforts of home with a spacious, well-equipped kitchen, large comfortable rooms, true high-speed Internet with whole-house mesh Wi-Fi, full-featured HDTV entertainment system with digital cable, Blu-ray/DVD player and Roku with Guest Mode to sign in to any of your favorite streaming services while you are there, and free long-distance phone service. Each bedroom also has a TV with Roku Guest Mode.

The home features a private in-house elevator for convenience and all home linens (bed linens, bath towels, hand towels, washcloths and dish cloths) are provided and set up fresh and clean for your arrival.

Our cancellation policy is as follows (please note that we are required to show "no refunds" as the cancellation policy on VRBO in order to have a more flexible policy than their standard options. We absolutely allow cancellations with refunds subject to a minimum cancellation fee). There is a $100 minimum cancellation fee. Bookings canceled at least 60 days before the start of the stay will receive a 100% refund less $100. Bookings canceled at least 30 days before the start of the stay will receive a 50% refund less $100. Bookings canceled less that 30 days before the start of the stay will not receive a refund.

To your rental fee, add just a $150 cleaning/linens fee, 12% sales / tourism tax and any "service fee" HomeAway / VRBO may charge you (we do not set those fees nor receive money from them - please check your quoted total before booking). Reservations are secured with a deposit of 50% of rent, fees and taxes with the balance and refundable $500 security deposit due 30 days before arrival.

The house can sleep 6 adults comfortably in beds (one King, one Queen and two Twin beds). There is also a sleeper sofa and large sofa/chaise in the living room. Our listed policy is a maximum of 8 total guests including a maximum of 6 adults. We do not look to over-stuff the house with people, but realize children are small and easy to pile into sleeping spaces. If your party includes more than 8 total guests, please contact me to see if our house is right for you. You really should not plan on having more than 6 adults staying in the house, however.

Feel free to email me with any questions (see "Ask Manager A Question" link in the booking area) Please note that we are no longer booking stays with pets. Also note that our calendar is always up to date (subject to pending reservations); no need to confirm your selected dates are open before booking. The "Book Now" button on VRBO is the quickest and easiest way to book your stay.

Outside of the peak Spring / Summer seasons, we can often accommodate stays shorter than a week, including those not starting or ending on Saturdays. Please contact me if the VRBO system does not allow you to book "odd" stays when the calendar is showing availability in these times.

House details:

On the entry floor you will find a full-sized washer/dryer, space for beach equipment storage and the convenient elevator. We try to keep out some basic beach chairs, umbrellas and beach toys for visitor use, but it’s not possible to say what will be there at any given time (things tend to come and go with guests sometimes). Outside there is a deep covered parking area (can accommodate up to three vehicles) and private, raised outdoor shower with hot and cold water.

The second level is the main living space, with a spacious, well-equipped kitchen and comfortable living room.

The full kitchen features both a microwave and toaster oven in addition to a new electric range, both a coffee maker and coffee grinder plus a small Keurig machine, a kettle for tea or hot drinks, a crock pot for easy meal-making, an electric griddle, a waffle maker and functional and stylish dish and glass ware. The eat-in kitchen features a six-seat dining table as well as a four-seat comfortable bar area.

The living room features a long, comfortable sofa/chaise and a full-size sleeper sofa in an open layout. And because downtime is important, we've provided the best of modern home entertainment. On the 47” HDTV you can enjoy a full digital HD cable TV package, DVR and premium movie programming. The TV is equipped with a Roku player offering Guest Mode, which allows you to sign in to any streaming service you subscribe to and automatically be signed out on your departure date. There is also a Blu-ray / DVD player. Whole-house Wi-Fi delivers true high-speed Internet to your laptops, tablets and mobile devices. The house telephone offers free, unlimited calling anywhere in the U.S. with crystal-clear wireless handsets throughout the house.

On the large main floor balcony you'll find a comfortable six-seat outdoor dining set as well as an extra seating area and large gas grill.

The third level features two guest rooms, each with a private bath. The room on the balcony side is a Queen room and the room on the driveway side has two Twin beds. Both guest rooms feature new linens, flat-screen televisions and Roku players with Guest Mode. The Twin room also features a DVD player. There is a Pack’N Play with mattress for small children (you will need to supply your own linens) as well as a high chair and baby gates for small-child comfort. The Twin room has enough space to sleep "extra" children on the floor and all rooms have enough space to fit the Pack'N Play. The balcony of the Queen room features two comfortable chaise lounges as well as Adirondack chairs.

The fourth level is a private Master Suite with a new King bed, large bathroom and balcony featuring fantastic gulf views. The fourth level is cooled by a separate central air conditioning unit, eliminating the problem of high temperatures on the upper floors of SeaCliffs units. The Master Suite also has a Roku Smart TV with Guest Mode. Soak in the views and sounds of the gulf on the comfortable outdoor sofa or Adirondack chairs, which makes the Master Suite a true private escape.

Dune Rise is not just a vacation rental unit, it is also our family beach retreat. So you'll find touches that make the home comfortable and relaxing; not just cheap to operate as a rental unit. We want our guests to have as great a time as we do on the peninsula.

Dune Rise came on the rental market in 2013 and we've been very pleased to have such positive comments from our guests, including several who have become regular visitors. We believe if you choose our home for your Cape San Blas vacation you'll want to come back again and again. VRBO's booking system can be a little confusing, so let us know if you have any questions. When availability permits outside of the peak Spring and Summer seasons, we are happy to accommodate rentals of less than 7 days. Contact us for pricing and availability of shorter stays.

We look forward to introducing you to Dune Rise.
