vacation rental description

Thank you for considering 4Sunsets for your vacation. We love it and we know that you will, too. We tried to make it perfect for you in every way.

Of course, that starts with the location. Steps away from one of the most beautiful, white sand beaches on the planet, this brand new (finished in 2014) kid- and dog-friendly beach house is located in the quiet and peaceful area of Secluded Dunes, parallel to St. Joseph's Peninsula State Park with a rare view to Eagle Harbor.

If you like amazing views, there are lots of ways to catch them. Enjoy your morning coffee or late afternoon beverage watching the sunrise or sunset from one of four decks, complete with screened-in porch, breakfast bar and latching deck gate (to keep little ones and dogs from roaming down to the beach without you).

A great beach house has to have a spacious living area, and we created one with plenty of room to hang out, play games, dine in, or just relax and watch a good movie. It has a beautiful fireplace, big screen TV with Directv, DVD player, Yamaha bluetooth speaker, wet bar and dining room table for 8 with seating for 4 more at the granite breakfast bar.

The kitchen is equipped with brand new stainless steel appliances (the dishwasher is super quiet), granite counter tops, an island for extra counter space and everything you’ll need for cooks of every level. Not to mention the outdoor Weber grill (connected to our propane tank so you never have to worry about running out) as well.

4Sunsets comfortably sleeps up to 13 vacationers with top-quality mattresses to help ensure you wake up rested and ready to enjoy the day. We have four bedrooms, each one special and spacious in its own way. There is a master suite on the main level (Garden Square) with a bay-side deck where you can see the sunrise over the state park. The two gulf front suites (Lia and Sunflower) on the second level have stunning views that won't disappoint. The kids’ suite (twin bunks over a full bed with a twin trundle, full sofabed facing a big screen TV and DVD player for movie nights) has been tested and approved by our kids so it’s sure to be a hit with yours.

And we didn’t mess around with the showers, which are exquisite. You’ll particularly like the double shower in Sunflower (check out the picture) but they’re all pretty cool and spa-inspired. And there are two more, fully enclosed outside showers for those of us who like to be one with nature after a run, bike or time on the beach. They all have tankless water heaters to conserve energy and provide plenty of hot water right away.

In the end, we built 4Sunsets with one thing in mind: we wanted to create a clean, peaceful oasis where you can get away, relax and have fun with your friends and family without a care in the world.

Local Information...

'With 10 miles of sugar white sand, this park is one of the top rated beaches in the United States rated #1 by Dr. Beach in 2002 . Sunbathing, shelling, snorkeling, swimming, bicycling and fishing are popular activities. A boat ramp which accommodates most trailered vessels is located at Eagle Harbor. Some of the highest dunes in the nation are found here as well as some of the last remaining habitat of coastal sand pine scrub. St Joseph Peninsula State Park has an abundance of wildlife and provides excellent opportunities for bird watching and wildlife viewing. The park is extremely popular during scallop season (July 1 - Labor Day weekend).'

Other local spots...

'If we don't have it, you probably don't need it'… Cape Trading Post less than 5 miles from 4Sunsets. Don't miss George's fresh hot donuts 7:30am until they run out!

Scallop Cove for kayak, stand up paddle board and other rentals (and gas, etc.) just past the Trading Post on your left.

Our favorite local restaurants...

Cone Heads (8020 Cape San Blas Rd)...1.1 miles from 4Sunsets for an after dinner walk for an ice cream cone.

In Port St. Joe…18.9 miles from 4Sunsets

Provisions (222 Reid Ave)

Pepper's (Mexican at 224 Reid Ave)

Joe Mama's (Wood Fired Pizza at 406 Reid Ave)

In Apalachicola…30.5 miles from 4Sunsets

Up the Creek Raw Bar (313 Water St.)

Additional recommendations from a vacationer who has been visiting CSB since the '60s:

I think I recall you mentioning a couple spots in Apalachicola for eating and just thought I would add our favorite in case you have not yet discovered it your self. The Grill of course is the original one and only on the corner by the light with bar none other best grouper sandwich in the pan handle. It was there forty years ago and Peter Fonda and the movie crew of Ulee's Gold which was made down there were regular customers. LOL it was the only choice actually for years. His 'Gold' was the famous Tupelo Honey gathered along the Appalach River. Best honey ever harvested and we still order it from locals by the gallon.

Our other favorite is Tamara's. It was originally located on one of the back streets but about five or so years ago she moved to the main street on the opposite side from the Grill and down the street a ways so not directly opposite The Grill. The Owl is okay but we really like Tamara's best.

Then hopefully you have also enjoyed the Raw Bar on 31 en route to Apalachicola. His hours are when he feels like opening and when they raked up enough oysters. We of course still like it before he modernized and expanded it and it was half the size it is now. Back when we walked it yelled at who ever was behind the counter 'Hey Bubba I want a tray of them steamed oysters ya'all just pulled out of the bay', then walked over to the cooler on the back wall and picked the brew of choice and sat at a table. When the oysters were cracked open and either steamed of raw as you wanted they were put on the counter and you went up and got the tray your self.

traveler reviews for this cape san blas house rental

Best vacay ever @ 4Sunsets on the Cape!

Review submitted: July 20, 2014   Date of arrival: July 12, 2014

Your beautiful new beach home (4Sunsets) on "the cape" was positively one of the best vacation experiences we have ever had. The house was extraordinary In every way, from all the personal touches on the inside to all the extras on the outside. Fully equipped with beach toys, comfortable deck furniture, outdoor shower(s). The guests before us even left some wood and we had AWSOME Bonfire on beach couple of times. Crabbing, scalloping, fishing, shelling, snorkeling, swimming, horseback riding on beach...we did it all!
The one day it rained was fun too b/c 4sunsets has a nice selection of dvd's, board games, card games etc. Alissa, you guys did not forget anything! We cannot wait to come back next year! Thanks for sharing your Fabulous beach home with us!

Simply Amazing!!

Review submitted: July 15, 2014   Date of arrival: July 5, 2014

Our family was blown away as soon as we walked into the home. It was perfectly represented by the pictures/descriptions on the website, and we were still impressed when we saw it in person. The owners were so easy to work with, and they were extremely responsive. We had 3 generations including a family of 4, a family of 5, and Gramma, and everyone had plenty of space. While we have historically traveled to the Texas coast, we will now call on this home first for our future trips!! Thank you, 4 Sunsets for the relaxation and inspiration on our weeklong getaway. ;o)

Wonderful stay in paradise

Review submitted: July 6, 2014   Date of arrival: June 21, 2014

House was designed & built very well. Finishing touches perfect. Liked everything about it. Quiet location on the beach. Everything we needed was there. Very comfortable. The gate on the deck was a perfect extra for us since we had two dogs & two small children. We wish we could have stayed all summer.
