Description from owner

*** AUGUST LATE SUMMER WEEKS are still available! ***

To see our owner's photo gallery with 50+ pictures of our townhome, e-mail us and we'll gladly send you the link (or do a web search for "A Beach Break" and find it yourself).

"A Beach Break" is bright, clean, well-maintained, and well-equipped because we want it to feel like your own home; our many repeat guests appreciate it, and we know you will, too! Our designer-selected "sea glass" color scheme with sea life prints and accessories is comfortable and relaxing. Our guests love this 2+ bedroom unit and have returned many times because they know it is well-kept and they are going to have everything they need for a stress-free vacation.

"A Beach Break" - if you enjoy the amenities of vacationing in a gated community on our top-rated beach, but would also like more space and privacy than most townhomes on the Cape offer, then "A Beach Break" may just be what you're looking for.

We are less than 70 yards from the dune walk-over to one the nicest beaches in the USA -- the nearby St. Joseph Peninsula State Park was rated America's Best Beach in 2002 by Dr. Stephen P. Leatherman, otherwise known as Dr. Beach. "A Beach Break" has a nice Gulf view from our 3rd floor screened porch.

With 1560+ sq feet of interior space, we sleep 8 with room to spare, have 360 sq. feet of screened porch and balcony space, lots of closet space and we are an end unit for added privacy. Bed and bath linens are provided. Master BR #1 has its own balcony and the screened porch off the living room has sliding panels for an unobstructed Gulf view.

After years of vacationing as both renters and owners, we know how important a properly maintained, nicely furnished and well-stocked vacation home is to your overall enjoyment. We also know how important these items are to building a strong repeat rental client list. Here are some comments from families who have stayed at "A Beach Break":

"A Beach Break was a fantastic place. We had plenty of room with 8 people and 1 dog. The access to the beach was less than a minute walk and the unit had plenty of beach gear that we were able to use. I had brought our own chairs and beach equipment and never even used them! The kitchen was perfect with plenty of dishes, pots and pans, and even spices (i brought my own; but the unit has a pretty good supply). We enjoyed relaxing at the beach during the day, taking evening walks with the beautiful sunset, shelling, seeing crabs, chasing the ghost crabs and we even had a beach fire on our last night! I would definitely recommend your place and look forward to coming again next year!!"

"My family stayed at "A Beach Break" 3 times last year and has already booked a spring trip for 2015. This condo has everything your family needs to escape the daily grind. Toys, movies, and a kitchen full of cooking utensils allows our family to relax together. The condo community has great amenities such as the pool and playground."

-- Stephanie & Family, Kentucky

Nearly everyone says how cozy our unit is and that they would love to stay there again next time they visit the Cape. It's a great unit for the price and we run specials for off-peak weeks. It never hurts to inquire to see if we have a reduced rate for the week you want.

Come stay with us for a week or more and see how a great vacation at the Cape can turn into an Awesome Vacation when you're staying in a home the owners love and care about. If you try us once, we believe there is a good chance you'll join our growing list of repeat vacationing families.

About the area

"A Beach Break" is in the gated SeaCliffs townhome community near the St. Joseph's Peninsula State Park on Cape San Blas. The Park was rated America's Best Beach in 2002 by Dr. Stephen P. Leatherman, otherwise known as Dr. Beach. The Cape has also been rated the #1 Dog-Friendly Beach in the United States for 2013 by PetVR. Fishermen have the best of both worlds: surf and deep-sea fishing in the Gulf, and fishing and scalloping in the calmer Bay. Wading in the waters of the Bay searching for scallops and hermit crabs is a great family-oriented activity. Bird-watching along the scenic Bay is always a thrill with egrets and herons plentiful. Horseback riding on the beach, chartering a pontoon boat to explore the Bay, riding bicycles, sea kayaking on the Gulf or Bay, and playing a championship 18-hole golf course on the mainland provide even more options for fun and relaxation.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

A Cook's Heaven with a View

The property was immaculate when we arrived and contained everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Since we had vacationed here before the most notable improvements were found in the kitchen. The owner greatly increased the tools to allow us to cook anything we could imagine. There were more than adequate cooking vessels and a huge supply of sharp knives. He even provided food storage containers for leftovers. Now, that's just over the top!
The beds were very comfortable. He had just installed new living room sleeper furniture which we did not avail ourselves of on this trip.
We had good views of the gulf from any room and we took maximum advantage of this feature.
We had good weather with which to enjoy the white sand and clear water. We did find that we were a little too old/large for the beach chairs that were supplied but it wasn't a problem as we had our own.
In summation: This place had it all!

Fall Break 2016

We had a very relaxing week at A Beach Break. The owner was very helpful with our planning prior to the trip and called early in the week to see if everything was as we were expecting. The unit was clean, well-maintained, and well stocked with kitchen equipment and beach equipment. The Piggly Wiggly in Port St. Joe is very nice. There are also several places to buy good shrimp, etc. that they prepare to go. We only ate dinner out one time. That was at The Grill in Apalachicola. It was very good, especially the gumbo. We would recommend Seacliff Condos and A Beach Break unit to our friends. Actually, we vacationed in one of the other units in 2006.

Highly Recommend "A Beach Break"

Loved our stay at " A Beach Break." The condo was only a short walk to the beach, the pool was only steps away, and best of all the condo comes stocked with all the beach gear you need. Saved us so much space in the car. I would definitely recommend a stay at "A Beach Break!"

Our Favorite Place

Thus has been our preferred unit for the last 8 or 9 years. We love the living area on top offering a nice view in the screened porch. It's beautiful inside after a refresh in 2015 and being on the corner, offers a bit more privacy. Can't go wrong with this one!

A Return Visit - Wonderful as Always

This was our fourth winter stay at A Beach Break and everything was perfect, including beautiful days for almost at month. The unit is attractive, clean, well located and anything you could possibly need is provided. Local management office is responsive and owner is attentive as well.

Great Stay at. A Beach Break on Cape San Blas

We had a wonderful time and hope to return next year! The property was well maintained and the condo unit well equipped, bright and comfortable. We loved walking our little Papillon on the nearby beautiful beach and meeting other friendly dogs and their owners too! We enjoyed a nice lunch at The Sand Bucket and a fun casual dinner at Indian Trading Pass. We also enjoyed the bike trail and the nature trails at St. Joseph Peninsula State Park, which was right next door! As an added bonus, we enjoyed a violin concert in Apalachicola, less than an hour away.

A Beach Breal escape!

This is our 5th stay at Cape San Blas ans 1st at Sea Cliffs and A Beach Break. This condo has EVERYTHiNG you need for a wonderful beach vacation! Very well equipped kitchen and even beach items that we normally bring form home (beach chairs, umbrella, beach toys, etc) highly recommend this condo! There is a decent walk to the beach so a beach cart is very helpful. All amenities were clean and very well maintained. Also loved the screened porch! We noticed that not all units have this and it really is desirable when the biting bugs are in full force!
