This Peace of the Cape is a piece of heaven.

  • 5 of 5

This was my second time staying with my family at Peace of the Cape. We loved it both times. My boys just had to go back to the very same unit. We noticed some upgrades including a better grill on the deck and more comfortable beach chairs. Frankly, it is a huge treat to have access to beach things while there without having to pack them and take them. The condo was very clean and comfortable. The kitchen has what you need for basic cooking. There are plenty of dishes. Things were fairly quiet there which was just what we wanted and rather amazing given that it was spring break and not too far down the shore were all the worst kinds of spring break happenings you can imagine. Cape San Blas is so refreshingly un-commercial and family friendly. I hope to be able to return soon.

Great place to get away from it all.

  • 5 of 5

Cape of Peace was a great place to spend a vacation. Sorry to say we had the coldest days of the previous six months but made the best of it. The rental was in a perfect location within Barrier Dunes and had everything needed to 'call it home'.

We would recommend staying here as the Cape is a place to just go and relax with little traffic and a great Trading Post to get whatever you may need.

Great stay on the beach

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable condo and the 1 min to the beach claim is no exaggeration. The only reason we didn't give it 5 stars was because we felt like the kitchen wasn't very well equipped for cooking. We like to cook most of our meals when we rent places on the Gulf and cooking utensils and equipment (pots/pans) were pretty sparse in this unit. Really a very minor complaint - wish I could give it 4.75 stars.

And for anyone staying there after this review, if you find a white gold wedding band, it'd be incredibly kind of you if you got it back to the owners or better yet, let me know (ransul @ gmail . com)!

** Edited. I felt guilty giving it four stars instead of five, so I came back and bumped it up. Just prepare accordingly if you plan to cook.

Owner's Response: Hi! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! We found out that there were cabinets in the kitchen that had been locked that were supposed to be left open. We apologize for this inconvenience! The owners had guests in just prior to your stay and the cabinets were left locked, but should not have been and this problem has been corrected. We hope you will come back and stay with us again!!! Cindy Trubee Knot Forgotten Vacation Rentals

Wonderful Week!

  • 5 of 5

My family recently stayed at Peace of Cape. The condo was amazing! The relaxed decor made us feel comfortable and relaxed. Everything we needed was right at our hands. We could not have asked for a better beach experience. We were basically less than a minute from the beach! We also had a view of the gulf from our deck.

Peace of Cape if Piece of Mind!

Owner's Response: You definitely hit the nail on the head! Peace of Cape is Peace of Mind! Right between the beach and both pools and tennis courts, this unit offers everything you need to relax and re-charge and thoroughly enjoy all that the cape has to offer! With the new outdoor shower, the kitchen updates, the views, Peace of Cape is treat to return to at the end of every day, knowing that you will have a fully stocked kitchen and all the amenities to make your stay memorable!

Three Years and Counting

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at other Barrier Dunes locations in the past, but once we found Peace of Cape, we looked no further. This was our third year there and as always, it was the best. It's only steps to the beach down the boardwalk and they provide a lot of beach gear ~ all in excellent condition. Although we have a canopy, this year there was a small pop-up type tent available that was terrific for the kids - and it kept their things out of our way. The unit is always clean with all the kitchen supplies you would need. We always take plastic container with us to store leftovers, as there are seldom enough to meet our needs.

They have enclosed the outdoor shower on the carport which is a wonderful feature for the kids. The only thing I missed from previous years was a hose to rinse off the beach furniture and the carport. We did that in the shower this year - Cindy said she would check with the owner to possibly replace the hose. Cindy and Penny are wonderful and available to help at any time.

The bunk beds over the stairwell are a plus - in the previous years for younger kids and this year for older, teenage boys ~ one visiting from Paris, France who was very comfortable!

Biking, kayaking, the park or convenient restaurants all close by ~ or you can go quickly to PSJ or Indian Pass. Coneheads has expanded - they are a must for dinner or just an ice cream. We tried a new restaurant in Port St. Joe - Krazy Fish. It was very good, reasonably priced and the desserts were to die for. If nothing else, stop by for a dessert and coffee outside. There's also a new small restaurant on CSB Road called Low Country Boil - we plan to try it next year.

There's nothing I'd change about Peace of Cape or the help we get from Cindy and Penny. It's relaxing, close to the beach, close to the State Park, Bay, entrance and the unit is tucked away from the flow of traffic. Having more than a week would be the only thing that would make our time in Cape San Blas better.

Owner's Response: We, very much, appreciate your comments and review of Peace of Cape and the cape in general! Not only does it help us keep the property up to date, but it also helps our future guests. Peace of Cape is perfect for a relaxing vacation, or a quick getaway, with everything you could want in the perfect location in Barrier Dunes right between the beach and both pools and tennis courts! Literally just steps from the gazebo that leads over the dunes at the north end of Barrier Dunes, the property's location makes it so easy to get your gear to the beach and back with no stress! The owner's pay attention to detail and are always doing upgrades that make staying at Peace of Cape a true pleasure! We can't wait to have you back for your next trip!

Best in Barrier Dunes

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in several different units in Barrier Dunes over the years, and Peace of Cape was definitely the best. Unfortunately, we were only there for a short time. With easy access to the beach, well decorated and appointed, plenty of sleeping space, and a nice outdoor shower, Peace of Cape is where we will return next year. My only complaint (and it's minor!) is that the electric grill is too small, and rather dirty. A nice gas or charcoal grill would be better. Thank you for a lovely stay!

Owner's Response: Hi! Thanks for sharing your experience! Peace of Cape is a fantastic unit in a great location, right between the beach and pools, with wonderful views! The owner continues to make improvements with Peace of Cape and has many more planned. The outdoor shower enclosure is new and perfect for when you are coming off the beach full of sand! New trim in the kitchen and updated linens are just two more recent updates. I passed along the comments on the grill and appreciate your candor - it is the best way for us to know what is important to our guests! Based on the input, the owner has decided to replace the electric grill with a full size propane grill asap. My partner will be getting that installed as soon as it is available! We hope you return soon and look forward to hosting your next stay! Cindy Trubee Knot Forgotten Vacation Rentals
