  • 5 of 5

our stay at FANTASEA was incredibe. the condo was neat, clean, up to date, and had everything we needed. there are two pools on the property, and fantasea is just a one-minute walk to either. it''s a three-minute walk to the beautiful, uncrowded, sugar sand beach. we loved being just a short bike ride to st joseph state park. the kids enjoyed the 15-munute bike ride down to the trading post store for donuts, ice cream, sodas. our reservation and check-in were easy and hassle free. master bedroom has a king bed. second bedroom has one queen bed. the showers have great water pressure, and the master bath tub is fabulous.

Owner's Response: Thank you for sharing your experience at Fantasea! This unit is really in the heart of it all and has all the amenities needed to truly enjoy your stay at the beach! The bike path down Cape San Blas Road is a great way to bike or walk safely away from the traffic and take in the sites along the way. And, the proximity of the state park, Cape Trading Post and Coneheads makes this a great home base! We hope you head back to the beach soon! Cindy Trubee Knot Forgotten Vacation Rentals

Great place to stay on the Cape.

  • 5 of 5

Fantasea was a very nice place to stay in Barrier Dunes. The kitchen was equipped with everything you might need and the unit had all the beach toys, beach chairs, and umbrellas you could want. The beds were very comfortable and the unit has tile flooring which is great for a beach house.

Barrier Dunes is a beautiful, dog-friendly place located on a gorgeous beach. We were on the beach several times a day, just relaxing and watching for dolphins, collecting seashells, or viewing the fabulous sunsets. The area is very quiet and about a 25 minute drive into Port St Joe but the drive is very relaxing because of the scenery on Cape San Blas and the lack of traffic. There are plenty of excellent restaurants between Port St. Joe and Apalachicola but it was also nice to grill dinner on the deck.

Cindy and Penny were great to deal with in making reservations and quickly took care of any minor issues we had such as running out of propane for the grill.

Family- and dog-friendly, relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This was a great condo for our family of four and our dog. The gated area is very quiet, lots of families, retirees and dogs. The beach and entire area is very well maintained. We loved our walks on the beach and hikes in neighboring St. Joseph Peninsula State Park. Great area for bike rides too. Tennis courts and pool right outside the unit were great too. Definitely plan ahead with groceries. No need to go anywhere if you have everything you need! Condo is a great beach condo. Nice that car is parked below condo, out of sun. And nice that they have lots of beach gear (chairs, umbrellas, buckets and shovels). Kitchen is well stocked. It was a nice, quiet and relaxing getaway destination.

Peaceful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a quiet weekend at this condo on the forgotten coast. It's only a couple hundred yards from the beach. The condo is well stocked, comfortable and has several nice patios. It overlooks the pool and tennis courts. There is a lovely flowering tree that has grown to block the ocean view but you can see it from the bathroom window in the master. And the beach is very close. Love that we had access to beach chairs, umbrellas and such to use. Very comfortable condo and Penny and Cindy are easy to work with and helpful.

If you are coming from Tallahassee, we recommend stopping at Lynn's Quality Oysters in Eastpoint. It's excellent! Most of Port St. Joe is closed on Sundays (except for the supermarket) so plan accordingly. We love Apalachicola as a hangout spot but the Cape is the best for the beach!

Best Vacation Experience My Grandparents Ever Had

  • 5 of 5

There's not a ton to say, so I'll keep it brief:

1) Cape San Blas is quiet and secluded from your typical Panama City or Myrtle Beach crowd -- and this is an awesome thing

2) The beach is absolutely pristine. Everyone cares about cleaning up after themselves and it's not too crowded.

3) The condo is literally 100 steps from the beach edge

4) The condo is fantastic. Everything in the description and more. We grilled out every night, used the beach equipment which was in excellent condition. The property is nice and couldn't be happier.

We will definitely be back next year!
