Cape San Blas, Florida


Chic Modern Waterfront Home with Private Pool and Elevator

Hawaiian for “the beautiful one,” this 5-bedroom, 5-bath gulf front home evokes a feeling of calm with ocean-inspired grays and blues, hardwood floors and contemporary décor.

Ground Floor

A private elevator greets you as you walk in, ready to whisk you to the three upper floors. You’ll also find an entry closet. This floor also opens onto a covered patio, where lounge furniture invites you to relax and watch the waves. You’ll also find a fish-cleaning station and full outdoor bathroom, including shower.

Level 2

Up one flight of stairs is a chic lounge area, styled in surf décor, with a full-length couch, which converts to a queen sleeper sofa, and two club chairs. Relax in front of the large-screen cable TV with a cold drink from the mini fridge, or take in the view from the picture windows. A ceiling fan will keep you cool.

This floor also features three of the home’s five bedrooms. The first, styled in a sunny blue and lemon-yellow palette, has a queen-sized bed. The second, styled in classic white décor, has a king-size bed. Both of these rooms have en-suite baths, flat-screen TVs and views of the beach. The third bedroom, designed in a nautical theme, has two sets of built-in, twin-over-twin bunk beds, each with an individual outlet. This room has two kid-sized bean bag chairs, a mounted TV and private bathroom located in the hall. This floor also has a private washer and dryer.

Level 3

This level opens onto the kitchen, great room and dining area, with an open, airy floor plan creating seamless flow and lots of natural light. Designed for vacation living, the gourmet kitchen has a Keurig coffee maker, toaster, and walk-in pantry to stock snacks for the whole family. A marble island, chef’s knife set and impressive gas range stove may also inspire home-cooked summer dinners. A 10-seat formal dining table allows for sit-down meals, with four additional seats at the kitchen breakfast nook.

After dinner, collapse onto the massive, wrap-around sofa in the living area and watch a movie on the large-screen TV, or step outside to gaze at the ocean from the mid-level private deck. A table and twin high-top chairs allows for coffee al fresco or an after-dinner drink, while Adirondack chairs and a roomy sectional invite your whole group to enjoy the ocean views.

This level features the guest primary suite, styled in classic New England beach decor. This room has a king-sized bed, flat-screen TV and private deck. A full-sized bathroom is just outside in the hallway.

Level 4

Encompassing the entire top level of this home, the elegant primary suite offers total privacy and the best views in the house. This room features a king-sized bed and cozy reading chair, nestled on a chic bearskin rug, a private deck, and a massive en-suite bath with twin vanities, a rain shower and luxurious soaking tub, deliberately positioned to overlook the beach.


Nestled on naturally landscaped grounds steps from the beach, Kanani offers ample room to enjoy the outdoors. Ideal for families, this home has space for kids to play and parents to socialize. In addition to the spacious outdoor decks and covered patio, the home also has a private, fenced-in outdoor pool for a break from the ocean breeze. A covered carport offers parking for one car, and additional driveway parking for up to two more cars but no boat or trailer parking available.

*While this home has an elevator, it is intended as a bonus amenity only and may be unavailable for use during your stay, as all residential elevators are prone to mechanical failure from time to time.

This home is not pet friendly.

Kanani is a lovely, spacious, well appointed home. Great location, great beach for walking, kayaking and beautiful sunsets. A few maintenance issues were addressed promptly.

Natural Retreats gives their guests the true vacation experience! Beat customer service we’ve ever experienced while vacationing through a rental property management company. I recommend you guys all the time to people.

Kanani is a great home with lots of excellent features for families. Natural Retreats was a breeze to work with (had 2 maintenance issues & they were VERY prompt to respond). Our family will now look for Natural Retreats properties when returning to Cape San Blas.

The home and surroundings were beautiful, view stunning, very well equipped! Only thing that could use some updating and more of is the cooking pots, utensils in the kitchen. They were all burned and rusted out. Otherwise fabulous home!! Thank you!

We had an amazing time on our vacation. We stayed at the Kanani property and it looked exactly like the pictures. We also needed to leave some of our luggage and returned after checkout time in order to take my youngest son to the airport so we would have room for his luggage. The staff was very accommodating. We also had to have a piano shipped down for one of our guests because he was doing his college classes virtually. The staff brought it out to us. It was the best experience with a rental company that we have had. We have already booked for next year!

Will add that we mentioned the dryer did not work on Sat. Someone came out and said it needed a new part. It was not repaired until Thursday. Also, not enough kitchen towels provided. The two were washed by hand during the week given the fact we did not have a dryer. Just a few complaints otherwise everyone loved the house.

The house was clean and has an awesome beach front few. When we needed the dryer repaired they were there within 15 mins. Thanks for helping make this vacation a wonderful memory for my family.

The property was just right for our annual large family vacation. Everything was clean and beautiful inside and out, very inviting. There are lots of great things to be said, I don't know where to begin really. Before we arrived I called the realty company and the gentleman I spoke with was very helpful and friendly, he spoke clearly so I could understand him. The pool was great, the bedrooms were comfortable. The view of the sunset, wow! I am grateful we didn't have to worry about dog hair or smell, that was a plus! One thing I appreciated was that the gentleman who came to take and bring back the trash can from the road, picked up our collection of full bags we had outside and took them off. Thank you to all who was involved for your hospitality and service!

The Perfect Getaway!

We loved our stay at Kanani. The house was beautiful and the view was breathtaking. We usually stay in a different house every year but it will be hard to beat this one.
