Escape to Kanani, a modern, four-level beach house on the North end of Cape San Blas, for carefree days on the beach, lazy mornings by the private pool, and cozy evenings on the deck after a day on the water.
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 decor.
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 with cruiser bikes and beach chairs to enhance your stay. Take a cruiser bike down the road to the Trading Post for a sandwich, or grab a beach chair to watch the sun set over the ocean.
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.
Up one flight of stairs is a chic lounge area, styled in surf decor, 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 decor, 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.
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 master 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.
Encompassing the entire top level of this home, the elegant master 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.
This home is not pet friendly.
