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 pool area and three other homes on the three acre site. Watch dolphins and the sunset from the private 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. 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! No Pets.

“Beautiful Home - Awesome Get-a-way!”

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.
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!

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.
