White sand beach

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this perfect setting with our dog Fergus in early April. . He loved his early morning run along miles of white sand beach as did we. The two storey condo was lovely with everything we could possibly need down to the well stocked spice rack. The only item missing was delivered the next day. The complex has a couple of tennis courts which we appreciated and with direct access to the beach and a view of the sunset from the upper deck we really lucked out and plan to return

Great Communication & Amenities! Excellent Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Wendy thank you for everything that you did to help us get a mini vacation.

Cape Escape Vacation Rentals was extremely easy to work with. Wendy made sure that we had all the information that we needed prior to our arrival on the cape and at Barrier Dunes, Waters Edge. The nicest part besides being at the beach was that for our short stay we did not need to worry about essentials, paper towels, toilet paper cooking spices etc. More importantly. we did not need to bring our own linens they were provided for humans and our pets. The condo was steps away from the beach and the park where we could snorkel and my son could fish. Beach chairs were ready and anything else you could want was waiting! Thank you so much for an excellent mini vacation!

Our new FAVORITE BEACH* Waters Edge was more well equipped than my home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a WONDERFUL time and Cape San Blas is now OFFICIALLY OUR FAVORITE BEACH of anywhere we have been before. It was great to be able to take our "doggie daughter" with us instead of worry about her being away from her family. The Waters Edge was just beautiful and more well equipped than my home! We had everything we needed down to a muffin pan. We had trouble with the TV (only because we are not technologically savvy) and the manager on site was ringing our doorbell within 30 seconds of calling her. We will definitely be back! Thanks for everything!​

Completely relaxing. Thanks for making our trip so easy!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great, sunny days and long walks on the beach. We were able to completely relax.

I will send some pictures of our happy pups on the beach next week.

Thanks for making our trip so easy!

And I highly recommend Coneheads to future guests for lunch, dinner and ice cream. The staff were all so nice nicest and the food was very good!

Rental Had Everything, Barrier Dunes is Well Maintained -- Need longer than week next time!

  • 5 of 5

Hi Wendy - We just loved our stay at Barrier Dunes! The unit we rented was awesome - had absolutely everything we needed. The kitchen was very well equipped and the bed and living room couches were so comfy. Sunsets from our decks were beautiful! We walked on the beach every day - loved that it wasn't crowded and that it was dog-friendly. In fact, we were often the only ones on the beach. The complex is extremely well managed - very clean, nicely landscaped, and quiet. I really appreciated all the doggie stations with bags and trash cans. Every day we ate fresh seafood from either Port St Joe or Apalachicola - the oysters and shrimp were amazing!! Definitely coming back next year, but for a longer period of time. One week was not enough!! Just loved this place - thanks - from a very happy renter.

Perfect vacation for couple seeking dog friendly beach and dog friendly accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

Objective: Beach vacation with our two elderly dogs

Agenda: No alarm clock, long walks on the beach with our dogs, lots of time to read or watch a movie, evenings seeking out local seafood eats

The weather was perfect (by our standards) with temps in the 70s during the day and cooler at night. We enjoyed 9 full days on the beach with 7 sunny days and two stormy days.

The Water's Edge condo was a 3 minute walk to the beach. It was clean, well equipped, pleasingly decorated, and included all the amenities we wanted. We especially liked the tile floors for easy sweep up of any dog hair or sand. The outside shower for rinse off helped us avoid tracking very much sand indoors.

On our late afternoon arrival we stopped at Conehead's near the entrance to Barrier Dunes to eat. We would have returned again if they had been pet friendly. This is the closest restaurant to the condo.

So now we have to give a shout out to all the dog friendly places that welcomed us to dine with our 2 dogs in their outdoor seating areas:

Apalachicola Chocolate Company (ice cream and chocolate made on premises, yummy!)

Indian Pass Raw Bar

Provisions

Dockside Cafe

Tamara's Cafe Floridita

Boss Oysters

Oyster City Brewing Company (beer only, but excellent beer!)

Cafe con Leche

Weber's Little Donut Shop

In summary we had a perfectly wonderful time:

Cons: 1. Pool not heated in Dec. 2. Some restaurants closed for annual maintenance.

Pros: 1. Fewer people on beach and everywhere else. 2. No lines, no reservations needed. 3. Weather was comfortable for dogs on the beach.

ps: Our dogs loved the OYSTERBONES, pet supply store, and we loved the Wake and Bake Bread Co. - both in Apalachicola.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you found Waters Edge clean and well equipped! I do provide as many extras as I can to make your vacation as relaxing as possible and packing easy...from laundry detergent to trash bags to dish soap....all things you don't have to bring or shop for if you forget them! Waters Edge is just 60 steps to the beach from the back deck, so very quick access. Thank you for staying with us for this Cape Escape!
