About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12-14)

“Sand Castle” is a true Gulf Front Beach Home with 5 Bedrooms, 3 ½ Baths and over 3,467 square footage with a "Private Boardwalk" to the beach. It has a nice outdoor shower and a fish cleaning station outside. The decks are large with plenty of seating and lounging to enjoy the views. It is located on St. Joseph Peninsula/Cape San Blas, San Dunes Subdivision at 117 Cabana Lane, Port St. Joe, FL 32456, check us out at Google Maps. San Dunes is an exclusive Subdivision with a beautiful Swimming Pool, (seasonal - not heated. The pool is opened first of April, weather permitting, and closes early October, again weather permitting), Bath House is adjacent to pool. This home was the cover of the Real Estate Magazine.

Please come in and take the tour of our home. You will open the door and step into a beautiful marble entry. This just sets the tone of what to expect in this home. Now go up the stairs to two gulf front master suites and two guest bedrooms. Both of the gulf front master suites are spacious and have glass sliding doors accessing a covered deck so you can enjoy the views. One is a King Master and the other Gulf front is a Queen.

This floor has a coffee station and refrigerator for your use so that guest do not have to go upstairs for coffee or sodas. The guest bedrooms are perfect for guest because they are on a floor separate from living area and the Grand Master. There is one King bed, two Queen beds, and a set of full bunk beds on this floor with separate air conditioning.

The turret houses the stairs and has wide landings to enjoy the panoramic views as you go to the top floor. When you get to the next level you will enter the large gourmet kitchen, living and dining area. This area has gulf views that take your breath away. The kitchen features stainless steel professional appliances, a true chef’s kitchen.

The 3rd Master Suite is located on this floor which has a two sided fireplace in the Master Bedroom Suite with King Bed and Bath area. The top level is a quaint reading nook to read a book, work a puzzle, or just relax and enjoy the views.

The Cape is very unique with the Gulf on one side and the Bay on the other side not to mention wonderful sunsets. But don’t take my word for it, come see for yourself.

About Mary Ann Conroy

This is a custom home that was built in 2007. It took me 1 1/2 years to design and about the same amount of time to build. I am a Personal Chef and have a business in Simmons Bayou, Gourmet Chef Now that I offer cooking classes or I can come to you. My husband and I have lived in this part of Floriday since 2000 and love it.

Mary Ann Conroy purchased this house in 2007

Why Mary Ann Conroy chose Port St. Joe

Location says it all plus the community pool make this home special. The bedrooms are very spacious with large flat screen TV's in every bedroom. If you like to cook, you will enjoy the gourmet kitchen with great ocean views.

What makes this house unique

Very large TV's in every bedroom. Large decks to enjoy the sunsets or dine. The gourmet kitchen is to die for. Since I am a Personal Chef that was a must for me.

The house is beautiful. All the showers are huge, which is great for children. The owners were very responsive to our requests and easy to get in touch with. There are a ton of stairs (in the house and to the beach). There is an elevator in the house but doesn’t get frequently used due to it being slow, which they stated in the instructions. The beach did not have very many people on it which was great. There is a community pool but it fills up fast! Overall great experience!

Best vacation yet

  • 5 of 5

We just spent one wonderful week at this location. The house was more than we anticipated and the photos do not do it justice. Very spacious, beautiful furnishings, perfect location. Very convenient for the kids to move from the pool to the beach. We could not have been more pleased with our stay and have already made our reservations for next year. Thanks for such a great house.

Wonderful week in the perfect vacation house!!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a wonderful week at this beautiful home! We had 8 adults and 3 kids and had so much room. The rooms are spacious and have beautiful views. The porches are amazing and we spent each morning and each evening on the top deck watching the sunset and watching for Dolphins. The beach is practically private and the pool was a must each day for the kids. We loved our vacation and are already planning when we will visit again next summer!! Thank you for sharing your home.

Spring Break fun!

  • 5 of 5

My family spent a full week of Spring Break with two other families at this great house. We had 3 elementary school aged children and it was a great experience. The upstairs view is absolutely priceless. The deck offers an amazing place to relax and soak up sun, sunsets, and has the most comfortable patio furniture ever (I want to buy it). The kitchen and upstairs living space is a fantastic area to spend time as a group. The access to the beach was so key for us offering easy access to collect sea shells and spend time on the beach. The girls loved the pool area. First time in Cape Blas and we loved it. Already thinking about booking this house again.
