Overview

Property Details

Updated: Nov 23, 2014
4 Bedroom, 4 Bath, 4000 ft. home 50 ft from water with Beach & Boat/fishing Dock

Update: Recently 2 redfish and 10 trout were caught from the dock during a week in April. 2 sightings of eagles swooping down to pick up trout witnessed while sitting on the back porch. One report of a 6' tarpon swimming under dock. The home is 50 feet from the edge of the bay with a beach access park directly across the street 500 yards from the home. Inside are new furnishing including tournament quality billiard table, roku for viewing netflix and other internet services on TV, patio furniture seating 8 persons on the screened porch, new living area sofa, wicker recliners, and a elevated game table with four raised chairs ideal for cards and board games. Play pool, ping pong, bumper pool, basketball, bike ride, fish from dock, play cards, board games, enjoy surround sound stereo using your Iphone connected to stereo, connect to wireless internet and watch streaming video on the Roku player in the upstairs entertainment room. The home has central heat and air and plenty of room to spread out. Most people comment on how cool the home is when they first enter. 500 yards from the home is the sugar white sands of Cape San Blas Beach. Enjoy the sunrise over the bay and watch the sunset on the beach. The stars are exceptionally bright when viewed from the back deck of the home. My favorite nightscape is the full moon rising over the bay. Linens and towels are provided as an option so send an email to book the home and arrange for the linen and towel option.

The bay is viewable from each bed in the house. A 500 ft dock is a few steps from the home. A managed pristine environment of live oaks, palms, sea oats and sago palms surround the home.

2 upstairs bedrooms have king size beds. and 2 bedrooms downstairs one with 2 double beds, a single and optional trundle. The other has the walk in shower, king bed, single bed and optional trundle for extra guests. Each bedroom has a private bathroom with shower. To see more video of the home and the surrounding area visit bobzio com.

The main floor living area has TV and DVD player. Attached to the main floor living room is a large kitchen with stove, oven, counter top oven, full size frig with ice maker, microwave, dishwasher, blender, toaster, coffee maker, pots, pans, cups silverware and cooking utensils. Off of the kitchen is a screened porch with patio table and 8 chairs. The washer and dryer are hidden away on the screened porch. Each room has cable TV and WiFi access. Bring your IPod and plug into the stereo. A large handicap accessible shower is located on the main floor. The home is unique in that there are no steps from your car into the home. The Grandparents can stay on the ground floor and not have to navigate any steps.

There is parking for 3 vehicles. Boat trailers can be parked close to the property entrance on a private paved road set aside for trailer parking.

The home is a monolithic concrete dome. The concrete adds extra protection and energy efficiency. Amenities include wifi, tv, dvd player, stereo, central heat and air conditioning. Upstairs has the entertainment area with CD stereo, Cable TV and billiard table. On the back porch overlooking the bay is a ping pong table, weight lifting bench with weights, bumper pool table and patio table with seating for 4. A propane fireplace is located on the main floor great for long winter nights.

Bring a boat or kayak for scalloping, fishing and recreation. If no boat plenty of fish can still be caught from the dock. Try throwing a cast netting for mullet from the dock. A favorite activity is spear or bow fishing for mullet as they swim under the dock. Floundering at night is an activity for those seeking some adventure. Depending on time of year an eagle or bobcat may be spotted close to the home. Want to learn to fish the bay? Captain Hal Tarpley will pick you up from the bayrock 1 dock and take you out for a day fishing or scalloping.

The Bayrock experience is serene, peaceful and private. Here birds are singing, bikes can be ridden on the 12 mile bike path, snorkeling in the bay for scallops, windsurf in the bay and shelling on the beaches.

Golf and tennis are a short 12 minute drive away at St Joe Country Club . Horseback riding on the beach starts at the beginning of the cape Road. Freshwater fishing is a 30 minute drive at Lake Wimico via depot creek or white city.

The cape bike path runs into the St Joseph State Park from the beginning of the cape road about 12 miles.

Inquire about para-sailing, waverunner and pontoon boat rental. Kayaks and bikes can be rented just a short distance away. The owner will deliver to the home for your convenience.

About the Owner

My dream was to build a futuristic indestructible earth friendly home. The dream was acted on in 1995 and completed in 1998. The home uses half the energy of a conventional home of similar size. The interior space is open and inviting. The surrounding area has been managed in a manner keeping the natural and pristine qualities in tact.

Out stay was fantastic. The home is clean and the air works great. We loved the sunrise over the bay and the sunsets on the beach. The home is big and roomy. The location is perfect for enjoying everything on the cape. We hope to return.

Bayrock is cool

  • 5 of 5
Both adults and kids loved the week spent at Bayrock. The kids had the back porch with the pingpong and the adults and the upstairs pool table and entertainment room. We weren't at all crowded. The beds are comfortable and the home is clean and well maintained. It was a great bargain compared to other properties. We docked our boat in the back and walked across the street to the beach. The kids could ride their bikes and skateboard down the hill on the long driveway leading to the home with out worry about cars. We have already recommeded Bayrock to some of our friends. We will be coming back. Thanks Mick for being such a welcoming host.

Wonderful Experience at Bayrock

  • 5 of 5
This was our third stay at Bayrock. The home is always clean and comfortable. The air works expecially good. Mick is always adding a little more to the inside of the home each year. This year it was the billiard table, A/C unit in the downstairs bedroom, game table and netflix. After several days on the water it was nice to relax and watch netflix. Mick is always helpful with information on where the scallops are or what the fish are biting on. The kids have plenty to talk about now they are back in school. We saw a six foot tarpin swim next to the end of the dock early one morning. They got to catch some blue crabs in the shallows.

Another Great Stay at Bayrock

  • 5 of 5
Enjoyed our second stay at Bayrock. Great to get away to one of the last unspoiled areas of the gulf coast and enjoy it with family and friends. Had a great time scalloping, fishing and just hanging out on the beach. Was able to see two turtle nests hatch on the beach just across the street. Incredible to watch over a hundred little ones make a mad dash for the water. Caught a bunch of redfish and whiting off the beach at the point. The house is spacious with large areas for everyone to get together, love the pool table, and also with plenty of privacy. Hope to visit again, soon.

Good but not luxurious

  • 4 of 5
The house has a great location and is very roomy. It was well suited for our family, but needs some upgrades. We loved the layout, the boat dock, and the entertainment. The pool table was nice. We would have liked to play ping pong, but it was too hot on the back porch to use any of the equipment there...no fans. There was an old air conditioner, but non functioning. The grill was just embarrassing ... A rusty old kettle grill on top of a metal trash can. The $100 we paid for linen fee was a ripoff! Wish we had brought our own. We got 2 bath towels, 2 washcloths, and 1 hand towel per bathroom for 8 days. I had to ask our guests to bring extra. The sheets and bedspreads looked like they came from a yard sale. There were no sheets for the rollaway beds and no extra pillows. We had one night that the sewage backed up into the downstairs bathrooms and had to use the rollaways because the stench was so bad in one of the rooms. Mick was very quick to fix it...Thanks. There should be more silverware..only 9 forks, so we had to wash more every time we ate. The refrigerator was covered with rust and the ice maker did not work the first few days, but miraculously began to work the third day. Overall it was a good trip and we had a lot of laughs about the shabbiness of the place. With some small upgrades to these things and some window coverings, it would be an excellent place to stay.

Owner's Response: Yes, there was a plumbing issue but this was resolved with 90 minutes of occuring and the area disinfected and cleaned. The number of sheets, towels and silverware are connected to the number of paid persons staying overnight. You had more than 8 guests in the home. When you do not pay the extra cost for additional persons don't expect to get the extra services. The grill was new in the spring. My video of the home which accurately depicts the interior of the home was made this year.

Bayrock rocks

  • 5 of 5
Bayrock is great. Mick has done a fantastic job always making improvements. I really enjoyed having the youtube and netflix on the TVs. We saw an eagle drop down and pick up a fish from the bay while we sat on the porch. All I can say is awsome and priceless. We didn't see any bobcats like you said but then we weren't the quietest group either. Thanks for being such a great host and opening your home up to us. We really enjoyed ourselves. Don't change a thing we want to come back next year and do a three peat.
Thanks

Location

From the Owner

The location of this home is the most ideal among all Cape San Blas Properties. The bay access is the deepest with a dock. The beach access park is directly across the street with a large state property park that goes some 2000 feet making the beach very secluded. The water is clear and pristine with plenty of wildlife. If you want to be surrounded by natural beauty and solitude then this is the best choice and still be able to visit all the modern restaurants, stores and beaches.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Panama City or Tallahassee at 60 Miles Nearest Barpub : Cone Heads at 1 Miles Nearest Golf : St Joe Country Club at 12 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Cone Heads at 1 Miles Nearest Beach : Cape San Blas Beach at 500 Metres Car: necessary

Best location on Cape San Blas to take advantage of the Bay and the Beach. Vacationers using Bayrock can walk to the beach 500 meters, fish on the private dock, snorkel in the bay, have a boat tied to the dock, ride a bike to the stores and restaurants or enjoy the wonderful bay view from the porches. The location is private, serene and beautiful. There is not another property with the same logistical advantages.

Amenities
