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.

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!

Beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this condo on Cape San Blas! Plenty of room for the 6 of us (4 adults, 2 young children). Loved having 2 master bedrooms and 3 and half bathrooms. Lots of stairs (3 floors), so our legs got a workout! Just a quick walk to the beach. Nice beach: soft sand, some shells, crabs, waves (not too big:) for the kids to enjoy, beautiful sunsets, saw dolphins just off the shore. We also enjoyed going to the state park and wading in the shallow water on the bay side; enjoyed the sea life there (hermit crabs, horseshoe crabs, fish, crabs (big enough that people were catching to eat)). We fished in the Barrier Dunes stocked fishing ponds, but there were a lot of turtles that wanted our bait too, so had to be careful not to catch them. Great beach getaway for all!

Wonderful spot

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. Everything was very clean and we had lots of room. I know the property is pet friendly. We were worried there might be signs of previous pet stays, but there were none! Very nice. The number of bathrooms is definitely a plus. First visit to the Cape and we were thrilled with it. Barrier Dunes gives a sense of security and seclusion. Walk to the beach was super easy!

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.
