This custome built home is a first tier property that has a georgeous view of the Gulf of Mexico. With an unmatched attention to detail, this unique property will provide the elusive "WOW" factor to your vaction. "Gloriline" at Crescent Palms Beach is absolutely one of the premier homes on Cape San Blas. This truly unique custom built home is a treasure to our Forgotten Coast. Set back among the pines for privacy, gulf-front screened porches overlook the community pool area and six other homes on the three acre site. Watch dolphins and the sunset from the community beach access or strolling on the wide beach just below. Because our 6 mile stretch of beach has few homes is it a perfect area for shelling. Sunday to Sunday Summer Rental
Guest bedrooms with screened porches have views of beautiful St Joseph?s Bay while the master (middle floor) and living (top floor) face out past French doors onto nine feet deep screened porches with views of the Gulf of Mexico. Sip coffee in the morning while watching and hearing woodpeckers and other birds as they enjoy the pines. Enjoy lunch or dinner outside with an oscillating Floor Fan on those evenings when the breeze dies down a bit. Built by renowned builder Charles House, this home meets or exceeds all "GREEN HOME" standards and has earned the State of Florida?s Energy Star rating. This is the perfect property for those with allergies as furniture is hardwood and cabinets are chemical and formaldehyde free built by premier cabinet maker Neil Kelly from Oregon. Our fully equipped kitchen is a delightful venue to prepare fresh local seafood or just a late night snack. The Dumb Waiter is not available for use. The home has Wi-Fi, Direct TV and free long distance in case you need to call home.
Only six miles from St. Joe State Park, this home is perfectly suited for those who want to get away and have peace and privacy. However, it is only a short drive to Port St Joe or Apalachicola should you want to go out for the day or evening. There is easy access to St. Vincent Island Wildlife Preserve and horseback riding rentals at Salinas Park, just a few steps away from the property. Across the street is the new 8 mile bike trail that leads to the state park. Within a ½ mile is a kayak rental and bay access at Salinas Park. If that is too much activity for you take a couple of beach chairs and spend the day enjoying the fish and sun and gentle surf.
There are many beach houses for rent on Cape San Blas but nothing quite like this elegant yet comfortable home. It is the perfect vacation home for couples and small families. Prepare to be delighted!

Great "old Florida" get away!
Connie B. from middletown, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2016 Gloriline was the perfect retreat for our week in the Port St Joe area! The home is stunning with beautiful architectural details and huge screened porches for sipping our early morning coffee. The beach and the natural landscape on the property gave us that old Florida feel we were hoping for after years of vacationing on Gulf Coast beaches that are full of people and noise. We were so pleased with the quality of this large home and the lay out which ensured everyone had plenty of space! We are making plans to return and we will be bringing our first grandchild next time!

Property Manager Response: Response from Beach Time Vacation Rentals, LLC Thank you for the review of Gloriline on Cape San Blas! So glad to see you all had a great time and experienced this beautiful home for your vacation on the Cape! It is hard to explain without seeing in person how truly wonderful this home is and how the owners have taken such care of every selection in the home. We do hope you will come back soon for some more time on that Screen porch!!
Cherie K. from Chattanooga, Tennessee recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2016 I met several friends here for a relaxing get away from our everyday lives. It was fantastic. Coffee and breakfast on the porches was the perfect way to start the day. Loved the basically deserted beach and pool. Also got in a ten mi. bike ride each day on the bike path going to get ice cream. Stairs: yes there are stairs. 19 on one floor, 21 on the other. We used that to our advantage by keeping our high calorie itemhs in the mini-fridge on the ground floor - had to work for it, at least a little, before consumption. There was a unanimous decision of all present to return later in the summer/early fall if schedules allowed.

Gloriline is a wonderfully maintained home and the screened decks, nice view and great deck furnishings are a great part of the experience. The fall is a wonderful time of year to visit the Cape so we look forward to seeing you back then!
A guest from Springdale, Arkansas recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2015 We took a week for our family to enjoy the beautiful quiet beach. The house was fantastic. Jerry ad Diane were more than accommodating. We can't wait to stay here again.

Property Manager Response: Response from Beach Time Vacation Rentals, LLC Thank you for your review of Gloriline on Cape San Blas. February 2015 did not give us the best weather this year but we have been blessed since then with some great sunny days. Look forward to seeing you back on the Cape soon and thank you for staying with us!
Stephani R. from Nashville, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2014 This is a great house! A short walk across a boardwalk to a dog-friendly beach. We choose this location to get away. This is not Destin or PC - this is a quiet oasis to allows you to unplug and relax. Gloriline has all the amenities that you could possibly need for a rental property and more. Don't pass this by.
Property Manager Response: Response from Beach Time Vacation Rentals, LLC Thank you for your review of Gloriline on Cape San Blas. We are so pleased your vacation time was relaxing! Gloriline as a vacation home is such a unique treasure and the Cape San Blas area itself is vintage Florida. Both offer the perfect place to unplug and unwind. We hope you will visit again soon!

A guest from Kennesaw, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2014 This was our second time to stay at Gloriline and we again had a wonderful time.We loved hearing all the tree frogs at night.

A guest from Kennesaw, Georgia recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in December, 2013 We had a lovely time staying at Gloriline over New Year's Eve. We didn't make it to the fireworks in town, but had wonderful walks on the beach with our dog and enjoyed the peaceful, well decorated surroundings.
Property Manager Response: Response from Beach Time Vacation Rentals, LLC Thank you for your review on Gloriline and Happy New Year! We do hope 2014 will bring you back to Cape San Blas for another vacation!
Stephani R. from Nashville, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2013 We found Gloriline online when looking for a beach get-a-way vacation for a week. This home is amazing! It has modern furnishings, fully equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, and great screened-in porches off every room with amazing views. There isn't one thing that was missing from this home. Other reviewers have commented on ceramic tile floors and multiple levels. Yes, there are 3 floors but the layout couldn't be any different and it really isn't that inconvenient. Having 2 bedrooms on the second floor allows for privacy while others can enjoy a large open area on the thrid floor where another bedroom, the kitchen and family room are located. Loved the commercial ice maker and fridge on the first floor - made it very easy to fill cooler to take to the beach which is a quick walk from the house. Look at the bedroom ceilings at night - a complete solar system right above you! This is one not to miss! We are definitely making a return visit.
Property Manager Response: Response from Beach Time Vacation Rentals, LLC Thank you for sharing your review for future guest. We are so glad that you all enjoyed Gloriline, It really is an amazing house with all the extras and decorated so well. The owners thought of everything you need to enjoy your stay on Cape San Blas. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Reed K. from Brentwood, TN does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2013 Our trip was done booked and we had to find a different location.

Denise R. from Waterford, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2013 My family and I spent 7 days at Gloriline at the beginning of April. We brought our chocolate lab along. The house is beautiful, the beds are extremely comfortable, access to the beach and pool could not have been any better. Just be aware that the main living level of this home is on the third floor so if you have older folks or an older pet this may be an issue. Also, the ice maker in the garage is great as is the "dumb-waiter" - it kept us from having to haul groceries and luggage up all the stairs. There are lots of books throughout the house and the private decks are awesome. We were a little disappointed in the murky ocean water as we were expecting more of an emerald color but overall it was a wonderful experience.
Property Manager Response: Response from Beach Time Vacation Rentals, LLC Thank you for your review of Gloriline! It does have all the nice extras guest really enjoy! We look forward to your next visit!
