'Hakuna Matata ' is a bright, colorful, comfortable unit decorated and furnished to help you enjoy your getaway to Cape San Blas. Barrier Dunes is a beautifully landscaped, family oriented gated community located on the pristine beaches of Cape San Blas, Florida. Enjoy the beauty of the Forgotten Coast in this friendly, safe, quiet community. Something about the Cape makes you forget your worries, leave your troubles behind. Your trip can be as relaxing or vigorous as you need it to be!
The quiet beach provides the perfect setting for reading, resting and observing the magic of the most beautiful sunsets you'll ever see! The two pools and tennis courts on site, and the bike path, state park, kayak and horse rentals nearby provide a number of opportunities to get your heart pumping and your enthusiasm cranked up a notch! Choose a visit to the hustle and bustle of nearby Panama City, or shop the quaint historic fishing town of Appalachicola.
One trip to the Cape will keep you coming back for more!
Family trips to the beach have long been a part of our family's summer enjoyment. As educators, we are afforded time off throughout the year, which allows us the opportunity to enjoy our trips to the beach. We enjoy areas that offer family fun, but have always been drawn to areas with smaller crowds and less hustle and bustle than large beaches. Cape San Blas offers the opportunity for quiet relaxation along it's pristine beaches, as well as a variety of outdoor activities for the entire family.
We visited Barrier Dunes for the first time when our son and daughter were in middle school, and were hooked after our first visit! The safe, family-friendly atmosphere and opportunities for fun, combined with the less crowded atmosphere of the beautiful beaches of Cape San Blas are what drew us to purchase our property and what makes us look forward to every visit to the Cape.
Tim and Lois purchased this townhome in 2005
Had a relaxing week. Great weather. Got food from The Sand Bucket. Excellent! Enjoyed family time. Love the house. Wishing ours was more like this. Thanks for opening your home to us.
This was a special trip as we were taking our FIRST family vacay (we're adopting our niece and nephew). Before we even arrived I felt SO welcomed, Lois is a true gem. It was a pleasure working with her.
The property was great for the four of us. I loved the little pond right next to our place- the kids just loved it. THe other pond was FULL (both had plenty of turtles) of turtles and we had a ball feeding the turtles- which then also fed the aggressive little fish LOL
The pools were awesome and one was a VERY short walk from the townhome but also far enough that there was no worry about noise, etc.
The walk to the beach through the neighborhood was delightful! Pretty landscaping, nice pool to walk by and great beach access to those beautiful beaches.
We went snorkeling/kayaking at the park which is RIGHT by the property.
We had short, yet fabulous stay and it was SO homey! We even watched Lion King one night from the collection of movies provided by the owners.
WE WILL be coming back and will hopefully get to stay even longer!
We stayed 4 nights and what a mistake it was. We should have planned on staying on at least 2 weeks. It is absolutely beautiful and this townhouse was more than we imagined. It had everything we needed, plus a lot of extras. We loved having the bicycles to ride around on. The beach chairs that were provided were also a big plus, we didn't have to worry about packing ours. This place is VERY well stocked. We bought all of our food/seafood and cooked there for every meal. Having the grill on the deck worked perfectly for us. This by far one of the nicest VRBO places we have stayed at (we have stayed at many). Tim and Lois were very easy to work with. We are already planning an extended vacation for next year. We loved the beach there also, no crowds, no beach rentals, no commercialized crap cluttering up the beautiful beach there. We almost didn't want to write this review because of what a hidden gem it is. A Big THANKS again to Tim and Lois.
Thanks Lois & Tim for a great week in CSB!
The townhouse is comfortable, relaxing, and completely equipped. Beach chairs, umbrellas, bikes (2) , etc. Comfy beds, three great decks and spacious carport. The ponds with turtles & fish were fun. Owners are great to work with and very responsive. Two nice pools with one being only steps away from this townhouse. The community is very quite (at least while we were there). The beach is a short walk and there are 2 access points from the complex, do keep in mind that you cannot drive to these access points and park. Two great restaurants The Sand Bucket & Cone Heads are close by. Do go to the bay via the State Park it is beautiful! Another great spot is the boat ramp pavilion park in Port St. Joe. Keep in mind that the closest grocery store is in Port St. Joe (Piggly Wiggly, 20 min. drive) and keep in mind they close at 9PM.
This condo is a VERY short walk to the beach. The owners are easy to work with and respond to all questions super fast. They even took the time to let us know the condo had recently been equipped with a new grill. They wanted to make sure we planned to do some grilling during our stay. We have stayed in other Barrier Dunes Condos and Tim and Lois are some of the best condo owners we have worked with.
The condo was clean and had everything we needed. The extra chairs were super handy and in good (almost new) condition. Everyone we met on the beach was super friendly.
We had so much fun and will definitely be back.
Thanks to Tim and Lois for being great hosts.
Our stay at Hakuna Matata could not have been more enjoyable. Tim and Lois were very responsive, informative and helpful both before and during our visit there. The condo was very clean and well equipped. The bicycles, beach chairs, etc. were a wonderful plus. The local area is beautiful and uncrowded. There is a wonderful little community atmosphere at Barrier Dunes. We have already made arrangements to return next year. Thanks Tim and Lois. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
Contacted Tim & Lois a few weeks before and they were quick to respond and answered all questions that we had and were super easy to work with. We arrived and were amazed at the rental and how uncrowded the Cape was. Early morning walks along the beach were nice and at times we could not see any people depending on which direction we walked. Fishing from the beach was good and we brought home several fish that we cant get at home. The water was excellent as was the state park. The rental was clean and completely furnished. We loved the fact that we did not have to haul an umbrella and beach chairs as they were provided at the rental and it was just a 2-3 minute walk to the beach. There were even boogie boards for the kids included.Barrier Dunes is family friendly with 2 pools, playground, tennis court and a couple ponds for the kids to wet a line in when we wernt at the beach. Overall the rental was excellent as was the ease of working with Tim & Lois. We will definently love to visit the Cape again. Thank You. Jeff, Tina, Chelsea, & Travis
