About Wendy Jackson

We fell in love with Cape San Blas our very first visit! We didn't even know it was a pet-friendly beach at the time and we've always had dogs and been dog lovers!

At the end of about 2 years we ended up owning 3 properties, all in Barrier Dunes, and were discovering more we loved about the Cape every trip! Our kids starting going to Cape San Blas when there were 4 and 6 and both are now in college. I look forward to enjoying the Cape with their families when the time comes!

When I started renting, I was a mom of young kids and realized it was a LOT of work to get ready for vacation, so I try to make it as easy as possible for folks renting with Cape Escape Vacation Rentals. I provide everything from beach chairs down to the little things you want when you're on vacation, but many forget...spice, trash bags, laundry detergent and LOTS in between. I also try to communicate as many details as possible before your vacation and provide a very complete guest information book about the area once you arrive so you don't have to do the research!

Some of our favorite things to do are: Bonfires at the beach after sunset, scalloping in the bay, kayaking, Indian Pass Raw Bar to enjoy oysters, crab legs & steam shrimp as well as great local music and company, a day poking around the stores (and eating) in Apalachicola many things!

I look forward to having you enjoy a Cape Escape soon!

Memorial Day Weekend

  • 4 of 5

My family of 5 stayed here over Memorial Day Weekend. We chose this rental because Wendy, the owner, was so easy to work with. She allowed us to do a 3 night stay, which was perfect. The condo was clean upon arrival and there were no surprises. We loved the use of the beach chairs, cart and toys. It was about a 150 yard walk to the beach over an easy to navigate boardwalk. Our favorite part was having a bonfire on the beach. We would definitely stay at any of her Barrier Dunes rentals in the future.

Quiet, clean and lovely! Home Away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed having time to be quiet and just be on the beach. The place was quiet,

clean and lovely. If you need a place to retreat or a home away from home, this is a great spot!

We had a very special 3 days at the Cape! Thank you for providing an attractive, spotless clean, well equipped, perfectly located home for us-the turtles greeted us in the mornings and sunsets gave us a glorious "good night"--Thank you for helping us to make it a most memorable time!

The condo was so nice and clean....had everything. Truly felt like home!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for all of your help in scheduling this trip! We had an absolutely wonderful time. The condo was so nice and clean, it had everything we could have asked for and it truly felt like home. We were all really impressed with how lovely the condo and beach were. The beach was fantastic, not too crowded and very pristine. We enjoyed taking walks on the beach with the pups and shelling, along with just spending hours being lazy and watching the waves roll in while we relaxed on the beach. To top of an incredible vacation my sister and her boyfriend got engaged while we were there! I can’t say enough about how much we enjoyed ourselves and how nice the condo and area were. We are already talking about booking with you again next year, hopefully for an even longer stay!! I personally forgot to take pictures (I never remember to take pictures!) but I will check with everyone else and email you any pictures we have of the dogs enjoying the beach. Thank you again for all of your help and hospitality! I look forward to returning to the cape soon!!

Thank you!
