Big, Beautiful Cape San Blas Home With Gulf Views, Screened Porches, and Large Pool.


One of the finer homes on Cape San Blas, the Crescent Pearl stands among loblolly pines just feet from the Gulf of Mexico.  Hear the surf, smell the salt air, and view the water from virtually anywhere in the home.   This unique property features walls of glass and wrap around porches for unfettered enjoyment of the sights, sounds, and smells of one of Florida's most secluded and exclusive beaches.  This finely crafted home resides in a small, gated community on the Lower Cape, in a beautiful natural setting just a few steps from the white sand beaches and clear emerald green waters. 

The Crescent Pearl is one of six homes in an exclusive gated community, with a private swimming pool and wide, uncrowded pristine beaches of the Lower Cape.   The Crescent Pearl is literally a gem, a custom home built by renown Cape San Blas contractor, Charles House.  Truly a masterpiece, the Pearl features high ceilings, walls of glass, French doors, and transom windows, designed to enhance the remarkable views of the Gulf of Mexico from its high vantage point.  The third story great room, comprising the living room, dining room, and kitchen, stands nearly 50 feet above sea level, allowing stunning views of the gulf from virtually anywhere in the room.  The wraparound screen porch is the perfect spot for casual conversation, dining, or relaxing as you take in all Florida's natural sights, smells, and sounds.

Wonderfully built and appointed, comfortably decorated, the Crescent Pearl offers a pleasant, tranquil environment for its occupants.  Natural grass rugs, natural fiber dhurrie and kilim rugs lay atop travetine stone floors with custom inlays throughout the home.  Custom cherry cabinetry from Oregon, solid custom doors with antique glass knobs salvaged from a New Orleans estate, and travetine floors extending throughout the home and porches speak to the quality of the home's construction.  No compromises were made, no detail forgotten.

The master suite is near flawless.  Underneath the great room on the second floor, it features the same views, French doors, transom windows, and wrap around porches.  Tastefully appointed featuring a large oversized bed, rattan chairs and natural fiber textiles for all seat cushions, bedding, window treatments, and rugs.  A spa quality master bath lies behind a pocket door, featuring a two-person glass and natural travetine and stone shower, over-sized jacuzzi tub, water closet, and double vanity, offering a wonderul way to start, or end any day.  

Accommodating up to nine, the Crescent Pearl has a second bedroom suite on the third floor with a queen bed, ensuite bath, and its own private porch facing St Joseph's Bay, and a second floor bunkroom, with two bunkbeds accommodating five in a full bed and three single bunks, its own private bath, and a private porchalso facing the bay, perfect for small children and young adults.    

The kitchen was recently updated with new, stainless steel appliances, freshwater filtration system, and fully appointed with Lennox stainless flatware, and porcelain dinnerware.   Cooks will appreciate the wonderul gulf views in addition to the fully stocked kitchen, adequate for all your cooking needs.  And if cooking isn't in the cards, the area's restaurants plentiful and surprisingly tasty, especially when it comes to their preparation of the region's legendary fresh seafood .  

 Cape San Blas sits between Port St Joe and Apalachicola, both of which teeming with excellent dining options.  Oysters here are world renown for their purity and taste, as well as the fish, shrimp, crab, and scallops, all of which are caught fresh daily, and expertly prepared.  Though the food is fine, the dress is casual.  The area's restaurants are homey, relaxed, and the staff and patrons uncommonly friendly.  The ambience and environment are reminiscent of the Florida Keys - never a hurry, enjoy the moment, live life as it comes.  

The region encompassing Cape San Blas, Indian Pass, Port St Joe, and Appilachicola is known as the "Forgotten Coast" and harkens back to a half-century ago, back before unrestricted development to the west.  You won't find any high rise condos here, and there are very few, if any, condos or townhomes on the Cape.  Carefully managed development has helped Cape San Blas retain the environment as close to natural as possible.  It remains a sanctuary for turtles, birds, and wildlife.

Please come visit, it would be our pleasure to share with you the Crescent Pearl.

This is a georgeous home in a beautiful setting

The Crescent Pearl is a beautiful home in an even more beautiful setting with views of the gulf or the bay from every window. This is without a doubt the best setting we have ever experience for a beach vacation. Roomy, and well furnished, our family of eight especially enjoyed the large rooms, and the screened in porches that provided an opportunity to take in the sights sounds, and smells of the ocean. The large kitchen, with all of the items provided for meal preparation was very convenient and we also enjoyed several of the local eateries as well as day trips into Port St Joe and Apalachicola. The kids enjoyed many hours at the beach as well as the pool, both are only a few feet from the house. We will definitely return and would definitely recommend this home to anyone looking for a relaxing and fun filled vacation.

Peaceful and Rejuvenating
My wife and I rented the house for a week in April for our anniversary. We had such a great time! The house was perfect beyond advertised. We enjoyed the privacy of the neighborhood and the location of the house, just nestled in the pines but a short walk to the beach or pool. The screen porches combined with favorable weather allowed us to open the french doors, take in the Gulf breezes, and hear the crashing waves at night. Very relaxing. Nall insured that all amenities were provided for and made sure we were very comfortable during our stay. EVERYTHING in the house was brand new and of good quality including linens, furniture, and decor. Although it was just the two of us, the house was big enough for 8 people to sleep comfortably. Overall great house and great stay. We would definitely book again.
Wonderful Cape Retreat!

Date of Stay: May 18, 2018

The Crescent Pearl is a stunning home nestled away in a private community on the Cape offering renters a tranquil escape. The owners were exceptionally responsive and made it clear from the beginning that they intended to deliver nothing short of a five-star experience. The home offers top end furnishings and finishes in every room. My wife and I celebrated our 11th anniversary at the Crescent Pearl with our three children and my parents. Vacationing with three children under the age of 9 -- often times we return home needing a vacation. This was not the case this year. The master suite combined with the home’s abundant space and amazing screened-in porches can be described as nothing less than the ultimate retreat. Upon booking, I was initially concerned regarding the overall view and proximity to the water given the second tier location. Absolutely no need for concern! I cooked numerous meals while enjoying the expansive water views the home offered combined with a unique wooded experience. I highly recommend the Crescent Pearl and eagerly anticipate a return trip in the future.
Absolutely beautiful home, wonderful experience.

We had such an amazing experience here! The home is absolutely beautiful...very clean, decorated so well and equipped with all that we needed. We loved the location too. Just a quick walk to the very peaceful, quiet beach. The owner Nall was so helpful and easy to communicate with. We can't wait to come back!
Simply Perfect!
Simply Perfect! The location, the Views, The Beach, The Waves......I can go on and on. This amazing house is located within the trees with ocean views. Screened in porches with a cup of coffee In the morning overlooking the oceans nestled within the trees. Easy driving distance to shops and restaurants. We cannot wait to go back!
Tranquil & Relaxing
The views are beautiful. Set in the woods with great beach views as well. You can easily hear the waves sitting on the decks. House was very clean and well equipped. Walk to the beach was easy. The screens were damaged from the hurricane, but didn't stop us from enjoying the decks (there are 4 to choose from!). You even have a bay view. Wildlife was abundant-bears, eagles, dolphins, birds. The owners were quick to reply and very easy to work with. I could definitely stay here again. Thank you for sharing your home with my family! Mellissa
Great Place for family! Quite and spacious
Thank you Nall for this opportunity to stay at your place. Even right after the Hurricane hit that area, house is quite good condition and every thing is ready. We stayed together with our friend family, total 4 adults and 4 kids, for 7 nights, the space is very large and surrounding is so quiet. Easy access to private white sand beach with lots of sea shells, Temperature was not quite warm but we are from Toronto Canada so it is quite comfortable. I want to come back to your place again!

"Beautifully decorated rental, very comfy, cozy, and well stocked kitchen"
Beautifully decorated rental, very comfy, cozy, and well stocked kitchen. Ocean views were serene. Sunrises and sunsets were remarkable. Loved convenience of garage! Small, friendly neighborhood with easy access to beach. Excellent, prompt, and attentive management.
Paradise in the time of covid!
Aug 18, 2020

By Jana Broadie,

Absolutely loved this beautiful home that was a quiet retreat. Steps to the beach, which we had virtually to ourselves, making it the perfect getaway in the time of Covid. The house is spacious and well-appointed, lots of thoughtful touches like screened in porches on every level and off ever room mean good nighttime star-gazing without being bitten. The amenities insured all we had to bring was ourselves, some groceries, and our bathing suits, the owners thought of everything else. You can tell a lot of love & thought have gone into the furnishing and outfitting of this place. We will totally look to return to this home away from home.
Upscale Peaceful Beach Retreat
Beautiful and spacious upscale beach home. Such tasteful and comfortable furniture, bedding and decor. No 'rental vibe' in this home. Feels like you are vacationing in the luxury home of a very generous friend. A great deal of thought and planning by the owners in furnishings, items in kitchen and even beach equipment was evident. Location is extremely quite and private. Super large garage was nice to protect vehicles from the elements. Crescent Pearl is not only an awesome home for summer beach trips but, couldn't stop thinking of it as the perfect fall/winter trip location too. Multiple decks with screened porches provide perfect way to enjoy sounds of ocean and nature. In the fall, will be able to turn off AC, open french doors and enjoy nature from inside as well. This home will remain on our list for future rentals. Owner very responsive and accommodating. Much appreciation for sharing this truly awesome home.
