About the property

2 Bedroom 2 Bath Sleeps 6 Pool across the street, 3 minute walk to the beach

Our beautiful townhouse is located on Cape San Blas, in the gated community of Barrier Dunes. The beach - voted number one in America by Dr. Beach - is a three minute walk, where you will find the clubhouse, seaside pool, not to mention the ocean. The cool white sand beaches are almost never crowded, and many days you can spot dolphins in the surf. Right next door to our community is St. Joseph State Park, a great place to enjoy wildlife, Hiking, biking, or water activities-it even hosts a marina where you can launch your boat.

The 2 bedroom, 2 bath townhouse is a corner unit across the street from one of the 2 pools and tennis court. More guests can be accommodated with the foldout sofa in the living room; the master bedroom features a queen bed; the second bedroom also has a queen size bed. Kitchen is fully stocked with every appliance you will need for your vacation, from dishwasher to ice maker! The bedrooms and living room are equipped with flat panel TVs and Blue Ray DVD players. There is free long distance phone, and cable with free WiFi. A full size washer and dryer are located in our laundry room, and the living room has a assortment of movies, books and games.

Outside, our townhouse sports 3 balconies (all with seating), one with a gas grill, and 2 of which overlook the pond (one of the stocked fishponds). We have our own out door shower with hot and cold water. Beach chairs and umbrellas are provided, and we have 2 bikes for you to use to enjoy a relaxing ride around the bike/walking path that runs the entire length of the cape.

Two great Florida towns are a short drive away - Port St. Joe and Apalachicola. Both provide great opportunities for shopping and excellent sea food. If you're looking for 'Major' shopping, take a scenic 45-minute drive down the coast to Panama City. Golf you're looking for? St. Joseph's Bay Country Club is just minutes away.

Well maintained. Tastefully decorated. Exceptionally clean.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at Barrier Dunes. This condo was well maintained and very clean. The same cannot be said about all of the units at Barrier Dunes. We were vacationing with other family members that stayed in a different unit, and they did not have the same experience. Barrier Dunes is a great spot, but be careful when selecting a particular condo. You can feel confident about booking this one. The owners do a great job maintaining the unit, and they were a pleasure to work with. We look forward to returning for another trip.

Clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year in this unit. We had another great week. The cottage is clean and comfortable. Very manageable for 2 couples or a family of 4...could fit 6. A pack n play fits in the upstairs walk in closet. Could probably also fit one in the upstairs bathroom. It is very well stocked with plenty of towels (not beach towels), kitchen tools etc. Bring extra trash bags, sponge, dish soap, paper towels and toilet paper. They have lots of beach gear for you...a couple of chairs, some sand toys and 2 bikes. The umbrella was mostly broken, but we made it work. Barrier Dunes is very family friendly and quiet. One pool is right across from the unit. The beach is a less than 5 min walk. The grounds are clean and well kept. Pond behind the house has tons of turtles and some fishing. The fountains make for nice ambiance. Decks are nice and gas grill is a great feature. We have loved both of our stays here and can't wait to be back again.

Great place for a weekend getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Great location to relax. Very easy to access the beach as well as the park. The house was clean and comfortable. It was great to have access to the bikes and beach chairs.

Kevin was great and very easy to get in touch with. We would highly recommend.

Great place to spend family time! Our boys loved the pond out back. Close proximity to the pool and short walk to the beach. If you have toddlers you might want to bring a portable baby gate x 2 for the stairs.

The owners were great to work with as well!

Very nice!

  • 5 of 5

The 2 bedroom town-home was even nicer than it appeared in the pictures. It was very clean and well maintained, and we enjoyed the amenities offered by the property. The property owners were very responsive and easy to reach. We would recommend this listing to others.

Clean, well-stocked and comfortable beach home. Great for fams with Young kids.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in CSB. The town house is impeccably clean, with some nice updates- but still feels beachy. The main floor was updated with nice wood-look tiles. You are right across from one of the pools, which was very clean and never crowded. Walk to the beach is less than 5 min. Beach wasn't crowded even in June, if you were willing to walk approx. 100 yards from Barrier Dunes. Beach was clean, and had calm, clear water, once Tropical Storm Colin cleared through. Tons of seashells!

The house was well stocked with linens, plenty of towels, kitchen items, bikes and beach gear.

The secondary bedroom is on the main floor and gets all the evening sun, and was very bright and hot for our little guy who goes to bed before sun down. Would be fine for older kids. We ended up putting our little one in the pack n play in the walk in closet upstairs. Worked perfectly. Master bedroom is huge.

Beds and sofas could use some updating. My husband found the bed to be very uncomfortable, but I slept fine after long days in the sun.

Grill was nice and we enjoyed the decks and the pond out back- tons of turtles. Outdoor shower was wonderful.

Community was well kept and quiet.

House would comfortably sleep a family of 4-5. Great for families with young kids. We'd love to be back!

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Our plans are to replace the master mattress and the the bunk beds in the second bedroom with a new queen size bed this fall. Hope you can return next year and enjoy the changes..Kevin
