Hurricane Michael Update: The screened enclosure for the pool is not available at this time. Some outdoor furniture may not be as photographed.

As you drive down the driveway, you will understand why this home is so aptly named PRIVATE RESERVE. With no adjacent houses, this secluded retreat pampers you with extraordinary views of St. Joseph Bay and amazing amenities. A private dock provides you with Bay access for kayaking, boating, swimming, fishing and snorkeling. Relax in the pool or enjoy the view from your private hot tub. The entire property is designed for entertaining, allowing for a large group gathering or that quiet hideaway for a little “me” time.

A handicap ramp from the exterior ground level to the second level's screened porch makes easy access for those with mobility issues.

Each level of the home’s interior provides a separate kitchen, dining, living, sleeping and laundry area; and a full-length Bayfront screened porch provides seating and dining areas with endless views.

To assist in your adventure at Private Reserve, your reservation includes $250 worth of adventure gear rental. Whether your adventure is sitting under an umbrella on the white-sandy beaches, biking, or fishing from a kayak in the Bay, this $250 credit towards your vacation gear rental will ensure you have the adventure you seek. You will be able to shop for bikes, paddle boards, kayaks, beach chairs, umbrellas, or even beach carts. No need to find the rental company, your gear will be delivered to your beach house and will be waiting for your arrival.

Our Home Away From Home

By: Trip Date: 07/06/2019

Wonderful! Private, Peaceful, Beautiful

Great Family Vacation

By: Trip Date: 08/25/2018

Private Reserve is the best Cape San Blas home we’ve stayed in so far and we’ve been coming here for about 15 years! All the details are covered for a fantastic large family venue. From the location, pool, hot tub and screened porches to the heavenly beds, blender, crockpot and great air conditioning we couldn’t have asked for more!


By: Trip Date: 06/23/2018

Our vacation rental experience is always a pleasure from reserving the home with Heather to our stay at Private Reserve. The owner has made the home warm and welcoming as well as beautifully decorated. She has provided every need, sparkling clean, very well maintained and comfortable. A great place!

enjoyed very much. returning next year

Upgrades made

By: Trip Date: 04/21/2018

This was our third stay at this house. Owners have made some good repairs on deck and added the fire pit. You cannot improve the sunrise. Just beautiful. The solar lights on the deck were beautiful. Owners were very quick to respond to a needed broom and dust pan. We will be back. ,,!

Fantastic Stay

By: Trip Date: 04/14/2018

This home was perfect for our family. Great quiet location and beautiful sunrise views from the comfortable screened in back patio. Plenty of room and separation for the different family groups we had with us. Keeping this one on our list of great places to return. Hopefully soon.

Loved it!!

This is a wonderful vacation home. The location is great right on the bay with a short walk to the beach. The house is roomy, clean, and well-appointed. I would recommend this place without reservation.

A dream vacation!

By: Trip Date: 02/24/2018

To say this is an amazing property/house is an understatement. The pictures posted do not do it justice. It is just gorgeous. Everything we needed was right there at the house so we didn’t have to leave if we didn’t want to. Our kids loved the pool and hot tub and the beach is just a short walk down the block and across the street. There is a nice little store and amazing seafood market about a quarter mile (short walk) from the house. And the family owned Skullys Low Country Boil at the end of the drive! (We got the seafood boil our first night there!) The drive to St. Joe isn’t too far, if and when you need to go. The State Park is amazing and the wildlife preserve is a must-see for nature lovers. Beautiful sand dunes and pristine secluded beaches! I can promise you…we will be back! Thank you for this dream vacation!

Recent stay at Private Reserve

By: Trip Date: 12/16/2017

Enjoyed week and weather during stay at private reserve. House was great, only issue was the hot water heater breaker tripped 3 times during stay and had to reset. Did not report it to mgt. Other than that everything was great with house, location and staff at Cape and Coast rentals. Would rent again and also recommend to others esp if you have a large group of family and friends.

Family Experience

Large enough for whole adult family and very convenient.

Best House on the Cape

By: Trip Date: 09/02/2017

Had a wonderful stay at Private Reserve, this is an amazing house in the perfect location!

We have rented every year in Cape San Blas for over 20 years and a few years ago found this perfect rental house for our family and friends.

We enjoy drinking coffee on the porch while watching the most amazing sun rises. Love the access to bay as we bring Kayaks and enjoy fishing/scalloping and just exploring the water ways.

One of my favorite things is the outdoor shower. Very convenient after coming in from kayaking, snorkeling or fishing!

Love the swing under the gazebo, there’s always a wonderful breeze off the water!

The private pool is an added bonus, just big enough to keep cool with room to relax and enjoy beverages from the outdoor fridge.
