Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely condo. The main floor: living room with large couch and a recliner with large screen tv - very well equipped kitchen with full size W/D and 1/2 bath. Second Floor: 2 bedrms one large with double vanities and sep shower and tub with large tv - the other room has twin beds and full bath. Third floor is master bedroom with king bed and double vanities and large tub and sep shower. All bedrooms have balconies. The linens are high quality. The storage room had a beach wagon to haul chairs to beach. There were 5 beach chairs already there and some beach toys. This unit while not on the beach was an easy walk. The pool was also close by as well as bathrooms. The tennis courts were also close by. Pet friendly. FYI - The only problem we had was that every restaurant on Cape San Blas and in Port St Joe closed at 9:00 pm. We had to drive to Mexico Beach for dinner. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this condo.

Very nice property and manager

  • 5 of 5

The unit has been recently updated and is very nice. The new beds are very comfortable and the kitchen is stocked very well. Barrier Dunes is a nicely landscaped, people and dog friendly, gated community. It is only a couple minute walk to the beach and just a few hundred yards to the state park. We always feel very safe here any time of day or night. It is very quiet on the Cape and a 25 minute drive into town but it is a pleasant drive with very little traffic in January-March. Cindy and Penny, the managers, are very prompt to answer any questions or concerns.

Owner's Response: We appreciate your input and we agree, the cape is a great destination! Turtle Beach is a great unit just steps from the beach and in the heart of it all. Barrier Dunes is a community where you can feel comfortable and enjoy your evenings walking out to the beach and throughout the neighborhood, without worry. It is a pleasure working with our guests and my partners, Penny and Ros, are just around the corner to handle any needs that might arise. We look forward to hosting you again!

Lovely Large Vacation Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We love Cape San Blas because we can bring our yellow lab on vacation with us. We have made it an annual trip, and hope to keep returning to this specific condo because it has three bedrooms (most have two), and all we needed for a "home away from home." It was great to have the chairs and umbrellas in the storage closet, so we didn't have to rent them. Easy access to the beach and the pools... though the pools were a little gross with hair, dirt, and sand - it hasn't always been that way.

Owner's Response: We appreciate your review and would love to have you back at Turtle Beach! With room to spread out and enjoy your family, it is a terrific place to call "home" while at Cape San Blas! We also appreciate the feedback on the pools and will make sure that the comments are shared with the HOA who are responsible for the pool and grounds maintenance. Come back again soon!

The property is wonderful.

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time that we stayed on Cape San Blas. This is now our place to go each year. The house was spectacular. It had everything we needed and then some. We will definitely be coming back.

Owner's Response: Turtle Beach is a great unit in a perfect location, right in the heart of Barrier Dunes! Just steps from eveything - the pools, tennis courts, ponds and of course, the beach - this unit is a great "home base" with room for your whole family to be together! We do hope you come back and see us again soon! Cindy Trubee Knot Forgotten Vacation Rentals

We'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

First time staying in a condo on the cape it was nicer and more privacy than I was expecting! Clean, loved the beds and spacious bathrooms. We'll equipped kitchen, even stocked with basic kitchen needs that other places didn't have that we have stayed at on the cape (salt,pepper,spices,oil even powdered sugar for our French toast!). Little things like that and providing linens was nice. Oceanside pool was nice. Very family and pet friendly complex! Plenty of space for everyone! As always the beach was beautiful, can't wait to go back!

Car: necessary

Barrier Dunes is located at the tip of Cape San Blas, a peninsula located just 17 miles from Port St. Joe, Florida. Barrier Dunes is also adjacent to St. Joseph State Park, a 2000 acre park that has a boat landing, beaches, bay access and hiking trails. Barrier Dunes is a gated community that has paved roads, street lights and three beach accesses. Also, there are two swimming pools (one is a gulf front pool), lighted tennis courts, stocked fishing ponds, and playground. The tourism is nature based, families come to enjoy each other while others come for the peace and tranquility that the Cape offers. We also have a pet friendly beach and pets are definitely welcomed in Barrier Dunes, there are pet stations located throughout the community for our guests convenience. Enjoy the beautiful sunsets that are special to our area, after enjoying the sun and sand, its a great way to end the day! Just outside of Barrier Dunes, there is a 9 mile paved bike path that takes you to the entrance of the Cape! There is great shopping and restaurants in Port St. Joe and Apalachicola, less than 30 minutes from Barrier Dunes.
