Barrier Dunes 7 - Tropical Breeze is as close to the water as you can get without getting wet...watch the dolphins go by from most rooms or any 1 of 3 direct beachfront decks!

Enjoy a front row seat on the Gulf of Mexico & on one of the prettiest beaches in the world!

Enjoy great views from most of the rooms in the home or enjoy from one of three beachfront decks!

You will find it well-stocked, well-maintained, & ready for a family friendly or romantic beach getaway! Relaxing beach with pristine white sand beaches.

The last of the 'Old Florida' beaches. No crowds!

You'll love the white quartz sand that doesn't burn your feet, the sand dunes that give the setting character, & the gentle Gulf waves. The fishing is great, the crabbing fun and the activities abound from boating, hiking, tennis to impromptu socials.

All of life becomes casual & fun once you breathe the glorious salt air & let go of what you left behind.

Try it & you'll be coming back regularly like many of our guests (a number of our past guests are now owners in Barrier Dunes).

Barrier Dunes, our safe, gated community, has boardwalks, 2 pools (one is beach front & 1 heated 4 mo. of the year), lighted tennis courts, 3 fresh water fishing ponds, playground and pet stations throughout.

Enjoy the quiet, unspoiled, dog-friendly beaches of the Florida Panhandle! Nestled up to the State Park and surrounded by water, it is the perfect place for a nature lovers explorations.

Boating, restaurants and other diversions are only minutes away, yet many of our guest never leave Barrier Dunes.

Play tennis, swim in the pools, sunbathe on the beach while watching the ever changing scenes, fish, crab, stir up a card game or read till your hearts content. Pet lovers are overjoyed at being able to bring along Fido, especially those who like to make an extended stay with us.

We know what it is like not to have what you need when you're on vacation! We try and provide as many of these extras a possible so you are focused on your vacation, family & fun & not on the basics!

We encourage you to catch your own dinner of scallops, crabs or fish & bring along some marshmallows and enjoy S'mores around the beach bonfire or roast hot dogs for dinner!

Our goal is to make your stay as good as it gets. To make room for the pooch in your car, we provide every basic essential we can think of (see details on site), but we don't stop there. Imagine a kitchen that is stocked w/spices, crock pot, waffle maker & crab pot. Picture yourself not having to pack the car with beach chairs, the boogie board, & beach toys. If you're bringing a younger beach goer...no need to pack the pack & play or high chair....we can provide in! Enjoy a grill on the gulf front deck. Relax to DVDs, games & cards.

Guestbook comments from the manager

There it was. Right in front of me…….. first thing in the morning. The ocean, the beach, with my dogs right beside me. What could be better. A few steps and there we were in the most amazing surf and sand. You couldn’t ask for a better picture.



My time in Cape San Blas at Barrier Dunes gave me what I’ve dreamed of…a perfect beach vacation and Tropical Paradise made it even better. The view from the unit was incredible….days first light through sunset. I could write a book about the sunsets. Can’t wait till next year. One more thing, the customer service was amazing.

Girls weekend +1

  • 5 of 5

My two adult daughters and I spent a wonderful weekend with my 3 year old granddaughter and 2 year old grandson (yes, he is the +1) at Barrier Dunes. The condo worked out perfect and the access to the beach and the pool were easy and close. The pool was clean and the beach was not commercialized or over crowded. We loved finding seashells and enjoying walking in the evening with the kids. The condo was exactly as described and fit our needs perfectly. Wendy was wonderful to work with. Attentive, addressing all my needs and questions, and very personable and professional. This is definitely a place I would recommend and hope to return to soon.

Spectacular!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th visit to Barrier Dunes and it was the best yet! The condo was perfect, the view was perfect, the weather was perfect, and Wendy & her crew were once again perfect! I simply can't say enough good things about Wendy, Soni, and Barrier Dunes. We have two teenage boys and a dog, and all are welcome. You can build a fire on the beach at night, fish, watch the amazing sunsets. All the people we've met there are extremely nice & considerate. Dog people are great people! We love all of those things, plus the fact that we generally don't have to worry about gangs of 20-somethings with beer funnels and loud music. It's a very family-oriented area. I recommend going to one of the small markets between Port St. Joe and Barrier Dunes and getting the day's fresh fish catch for dinner, along with some great shrimp for an appetizer. Duren's Piggly Wiggly in Port St Joe is the place to get your grocery staples. Horseback riding on the beach is a must! So...all that is to say...plan a trip to Barrier Dunes ASAP! Contact Wendy for the perfect rental for your needs. She & Soni have gone above and beyond for us on more than one occasion.

Loved our Condo RIGHT on the Beach! We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a wonderful mini vacation! Loved our condo right on the beach. Beautiful sunsets, beautiful white sand and wonderful accommodations. It was so nice to be somewhere where dogs are loved. All the the shops in Apalachicola and Port St Joe were quaint and were dog friendly. I will definitely be back!

Soli Deo Gloria

  • 5 of 5

Once again, our family time at Barrier Dunes was more than we expected! From the moment Wendy took our reservation, until the moment Soni and her team had the place spotless for us. This was our third trip to The Cape and we will continue our vacations to Barrier Dunes as long as we make time for a vacation. The views are breath-taking, while the units are exactly what we need now. As our family grows, Wendy and the team will make the proper adjustments to meet our needs. They know everything about customer satisfaction and will do whatever it takes to make your stay a pleasant one....Until next time....We will cherish our memories there as we worship The Creator and not His creation!

He is Deliverer!

Cape San Blas is the Hidden Secret of the FL Coast. Tropical Breeze is and IDEAL Rental!

  • 5 of 5

We made this year an extended family vacation. My sister-in-law, her grown children, spouses, and grandchildren were next door. We had a great time on the beach, in the pool (which is less than 50 yards from the front door) and on our decks with the best view of the ocean you could ask for. Our children met some of their cousins that were in the area at the Indian Pass Raw Bar and all were impressed with the atmosphere and quality of the food. My wife, sister-in-law and I ate at Triple Tails between the Cape and Port St. Joe and would highly recommend it as a quaint local place to eat (excellent food). Having travelled all over while in the military I can honestly say there are no prettier beaches in the world than the panhandle of Florida and Cape San Blas is the greatest hidden secret of the Florida coast. If you are looking for the ideal place Tropical Breeze (BD7) is it.

Beautiful Views * Attention to Detail * We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

Your place in cape San Blas is perfect. The views are great (all 3 decks…especially the top floor’s view). The kitchen was well stocked with all the utensils. We cooked in every night so we would know!

This part of the Cape is quiet and beautiful. We love the fact that our younger kids can play or bike ride in the community safely. And, thank you for your attention to detail, even calling us on the way down to let us know about some potential delays on the road due to some area flooding. That was above and beyond.

Have a great 2016. We’ll be back.
