About

Cape San Blas is a 15 mile peninsula in a laid back area of the Florida panhandle called the “Forgotten Coast”. The Cape creates an amazing aquatic preserve known as the St. Joseph Bay. Sea life is abundant, but visitors are not. If you are looking for a vacation that offers the peaceful beauty of old Florida and the affordable access to the most beautiful beaches on the Gulf, you’ve come to the right place.
Once you’ve arrived you will discover the area is a mix of traditional legacy beach properties and new developments. “Firefly” is a new build in Bay Hibiscus. Hibiscus is one of the finest developments on the Cape. It offers only a couple of rental properties and thus retains its quiet, refined privacy. Bay Hibiscus is naturally on the Bay side and offers a 500’ pier that stretches into the protected waters of St Joe Bay. The property also includes a beautiful community pool, and private beach access with a gazebo for relaxing and watching amazing sunsets. Firefly overlooks Rish Park and offers an unobstructed panoramic view of the gulf. While you are not directly on the beach, you will not find a more impressive view.
The first floor includes covered parking for up to 4 vehicles under the home, a half bath, beach supplies storage area and a huge outdoor shower. Level two offers two master king suites with well appointed baths, a large bedroom with two twin beds and room for a crib or pack-n-play as well as a bunk room with two twin bunks and another full bath. The third floor features another king bedroom, full bath and a huge open dining, living and kitchen space. There is a large main dining table that seats eight as well as another table that seats 4 and a kids table with 4 kid’s chairs is also available. All levels offer gulf facing decks with ample seating to take in the evening sunsets. The third level also offers a quaint rear deck with a BBQ grill and outdoor bar. The rear deck provides a great place for morning coffee overlooking a stocked fishing pond and the sunrise over St Joseph’s Bay.

We had a wonderful stay at firefly. Beautiful home, plenty of room to spread out. Perfect for a family vacation with ages ranging from 2 to 80.

There was 9 of us staying at Firefly and it worked out perfectly. The house is beautiful and included everything we needed including beach chairs, beach towels, 2 wagons and toys. And the house was stocked well with other accessories. The beach was very private, which we loved. It was a bit of a walk through the dunes to get to the beach but well worth it once you got there. The area is awesome as well. A great trading post for groceries and other goodies just down the road from the house. We also traveled into Port St Joe and surrounding bars and restaurants and enjoyed all of them. We would for sure stay at the Firefly again when we get the chance.

Fantastic family vacation at the Firefly. Location, comfortable, amenities, cleanliness, all were top notch. Designed for larger group fellowship, meals, sleeping privacy, decks, and with beach furniture and toys for everyone. Hibiscus division includes bay side access for kayaks etc and gulf side provides well cared for pool and picnic area, and the beach is not crowded even during high traffic weekends. We will definitely try to return to Firefly soon.

We had a great time during our stay at Firefly. The location was perfect, with the bay on one side and beach on the other. The pictures do not do it justice, it is so much better in person. We especially enjoyed the sunsets from the deck.
The house was very clean and we did not have any complaints at all. We will definitely be back

If you are looking for a quiet beautiful getaway this is it! Firefly was a perfect place for nine teachers from Clarkesville to get a respite.
We thoroughly enjoyed the Firefly. The house was well equipped. Everything one could need in the kitchen was available. The beach chairs, wagon and floats were pleasant surprises. The best surprise was the third floor deck. The view was magnificent. A great place for all of us to enjoy the evening breeze and beautiful sunrise.The walk tot he beach was longer than I like, but the house made up for it. And we got to the beach, Happy Cabanas had set up for us. Great company! A final perk was that the rental company and the Cabana Company kept us informed of flags for the beach and other things going on. Overall GREAT experience.

Wonderful place to stay. Great attention to detail especially when it came to the high chair and small table with chairs for the kids. Also all of the extra beach chairs and toys. The house was beautifully done cant complain about anything. Will definitely be back and would recommend to all my friends to stay.

Although the photos of Firefly were very nice, the house & location were breathtaking in person. It was perfect for our 2 families & my parents. We enjoyed swimming in the gulf & the community pool, shore fishing in the gulf & off the dock on the bay, beach campfires & hunting for ghost crabs, exploring the cape & surrounding areas, most of all - the spectacular views. We hope to return again next year. The owners responded promptly and were very accommodating.
