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!

Very Clean, Spacious, Fabulous Decor, & Everything We Needed Was Provided!

  • 5 of 5

I just loved this property! There was plenty of room for my husband and I, 3 kids, and my sister. We had a fabulous time! I especially liked being so close to the beach. I loved the decor, very beachy and comfortable, and the condo was immaculate! We had some great meals, and did not need for anything in the kitchen. There was everything for cooking you could possibly think of, even spices! It was really nice not having to pack all the essentials. The beds and living room furniture was very comfortable. I have a bad back, so the bed is very important! We had some great times out on the beach, uncrowded and quiet, and the bonfires at night while watching the sunset were fantastic! My husband and kids also loved surf fishing everyday! One day we rented a boat and went exploring on the end of the cape in St Joe State Park. The kids were finding all kinds of creatures! They had a blast! Once again we made some awesome family memories that will last for a lifetime! Thank you so much Wendy, we can't wait to go back!

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!
