“We had a really relaxing time which is just what we needed. The condo was so clean and well-stocked, but the location is great. Loved that it was just a short walk to the book AND beach. Met some really nice people including some other kids my boys could play with. Thanks for providing the “little” things like laundry detergent, hand soap, etc. I really appreciated it! All and all, we had a wonderful vacation!”

Gulf Breeze – Barrier Dunes 15 – light & cheerful – TRIP REPORTS:
The Duvall’s (August 2016)
This was our first year staying on “the forgotten coast”, we certainly hope it stays that way. The beach is absolutely beautiful, clear water and very uncrowded beach almost like having a private beach. We have been vacationing along the gulf coast for over 25 years this year was our very favorite .From the very first contact, Wendy made the planning for our vacation easy responding promptly to our questions. The pictures on the website are very accurate in representing the town home, community and beach. The townhouse was clean, spacious and comfortable. When we vacation we love to buy fresh seafood cook in the evenings. The kitchen in BD #15 is an ideal place for cooking as it is spacious and well equipped. We plan to return next year and for many more! Thank you Wendy, for making this the best vacation on the gulf ever!!
Eric Price (August 2016) Repeat Guest
This was our second consecutive year to Cape San Blas via the Barrier Dunes and booking through Wendy. This year like last was a blast. We did a whole lot less this year as far as the area attractions are concerned. We brought most everything we needed with us and didn’t get out of the house too much. It rained a lot. That did not keep us from the beach however. We had a blast the entire time. Wendy and Sonni responded to every question and concern we had while we were there and they did so with a quickness. We will definitely be coming back. We brought our two Border Collies with us and they had an absolute scream and never wanted to leave the beach. The word “beach” is now solidified in their minds with the Barrier Dunes at Cape San Blas. My 3-year-old son couldn’t get enough of any of it. Between the pool, the beach itself, and the other kids there tooling around in the sand and surf he was in bliss. It truly is one of the greatest family getaways we have known. The only drawback is that the time goes by way too quickly in the Cape. We will try and amend that on our next pass with a much longer stay!
Martha Kelley (June 2016)
We had an awesome time. The condo was very clean & had everything we could need.
The view from the deck was wonderful. You could see & hear the ocean which is a must for me. The decorations in the condo were beautiful. Loved the colors.
We had one maintenance issue but it was fixed within 2 hrs of our call. Couldn’t ask for a more wonderful place to spend a few days.
Becky Clure (June 2016)
We have had a wonderful time! Thank you for sharing this beautiful place with us! Hope to see you next year!
Ellen Sims- Repeat Guest (April 2016)
This is our second time staying in Barrier Dunes and the first in this unit. The owner is very easy to deal with. All communications I sent to her were responded to very quickly and satisfactorily. The unit itself, 555 Barrier Dunes Drive, is nicely stocked with everything you need to get your beach visit started! Beach chairs are provided, which is a huge plus to me – one less thing to haul from home!
My favorite thing about Barrier Dunes, and Cape San Blas, is that they are pet-friendly! We love taking our dogs to the beach, instead of having to board them! There are pet stations situated conveniently throughout the property with plenty of garbage cans. You will be surprised how clean this pet-friendly destination is!
Can’t wait til our next trip to Barrier Dunes!
The Anderson Family (August 2015)
The condo was nicely decorated & was very clean when we arrived. When we stayed in another previous rental condo (with a different company), the furniture was so worn and not very clean so this was a pleasant surprise! We would def recommend Cape Escape again! It was nice having beach chairs & a boogie board in the unit! Soni was super nice, we had a problem with the cordless phone & she replaced it the next day. Thank you for sharing your home with us!
Shari Gayda & Friends (August 2015)
We had a WONDERFUL time!!! The home was even better than we had hoped…spacious, clean & beautiful!!! The weekend was truly perfect! To be perfectly honest with you, the only time we ever left the house/beach once we arrived was for one quick trip to The Trading Post to get more ice and OJ!
I have rented many places over the years and have never been to a place that was better stocked or provided more information about the house itself or the surrounding areas. It is clear that you take pride in the homes you manage and of the Cape San Blas area itself.
I will likely be contacting you sometime this week or next to book a place for my family for next summer…I’m hoping for an annual trip to the Cape with family and/or friends (or all by myself if need be…LOL) and would be delighted if every trip was at one of your Barrier Dune options in Paradise.
The beautiful beach home, white sand, crystal clear sparkling (like diamonds) water, and most importantly the laughter between good friends on this magical weekend will be memories we all treasure for a lifetime!
I’ve copied my friends on this email so that they can email you with their comments as well if they so desire.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing the beauty of the Cape with us!! I will be in touch soon!
The Ferchman Family (August 2015)
We had a wonderful time at Barrier Dunes. The apartment was fantastic, the beach was beautiful and my kids practically lived in the pool the entire time. When my husband could drag them out of the pool they had a blast fishing (see attached photos). The loft was a hit and I loved having an area where the kids could spread out their toys and I didn’t have to trip over them in the morning before coffee. Both my husband and I remarked that the apartment, beach and pool were even better than the website conveys. We’ve already decided to make summer trips to the Cape a family tradition so expect to hear from me next year!
Mary Mehegan & Family (July 2015)
We really enjoyed our time at the cape. We were fortunate to have beautiful weather. We loved the stocked kitchen and used your crockpot several times. Made dinner in the morning, then spent the day at the beach. Your place was very clean and comfortable. Used your washer and dryer which worked well and nice they supplied the detergent.
Maurica Cornett (October 2013)
Yes we are home and had a wonderful trip we loved it and will be returning in future . So many nice people the beach was wonderful, I could go on forever thanks for all your help. Thanks again for the wonderful and needed vacation.
Curtis and Paulette Peil (January 2013)
We just finished the best vacation in thirty (30) years at Barrier Dunes #15. These are the things that we enjoyed. The direct view of The Gulf and the porch off of the living area. It was a great place to rest with our buddies (dogs) and to enjoy the great weather (in January). We rode our bike’s frequently and found the closeness to St Joseph State Park and the bike trail along side 30E to give us a safe trail and enjoyable scenery. Conehead’s restaurant, which is within walking distance, tuned out to be one of our favorites. Their seafood gumbo is tremendous. They have a full menu with quality food at a reasonable price.
The beach was fabulous and the other guests were friendly. Everyone was dog friendly and took responsibility for their pets. The pet stations and walking areas in the facility were handy and well planned out. The condo was equipped with everything one would need and more and the information provided helped to be familiar with the community. When I needed assistance, Wendy and her staff, were prompt and professional in helping us. We definitely will be back. Thanks for a wonderful time.

Elizabeth Green, April 2011
We had a great week at Barrier Dunes. Barrier Dunes 15 was perfect. It turned out to be just my husband and I. First vacation we have ever taken by ourselves and it was perfect. Thank you so much!
Mark and Michelle Fisher, April 2011
First, I want to thank you for enabling us to make this last minute vacation arrangement. We had a great time and were very happy with everything. The place was better than we expected! Being a beach vacation rental, we didn’t expect it to be as clean and well-maintained as it is. And, of course, it was well-stocked with the small stuff that make it so comfortable.
My wife, whose idea this was, is thinking we will want to return next year! Thank you very much!!
Tricia Pokrandt, March 2011
We absolutely LOVED our time at Barrier Dunes 15. It was so comfortable and relaxing. The sunsets were awesome, and our time on the beach was the best. The kids loved swimming in the ocean. We saw 2 dolphins one day. We also went into St. Joseph’s State Park and took a hike along the bay. We saw many crabs on the beach there. We were thrilled to stay the extra night too.
Thanks again for a great place to get away….especially front Wisconsin at this time of year! We really appreciated working with you!
Dan & Judy McEver, January 2011
Thank you for returning the deposit check so promptly. We really enjoyed our stay this year, met new friends and loved the view from the condo. The new floors were awesome and the deck furniture was the best we have come across in all our stays at condos. Thanks again!
Mark Zbiden, November 2010
We had a wonderful time! Bob & Missy and Rayeanne arrived on Wednesday afternoon and enjoyed 3 full days of great weather and beach fun. It was a most enjoyable holiday week for all of us! Betsy said as we were leaving that she would not mind coming back. Merry Christmas to you and yours!
David Chandler, August 2010
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We will for sure be back again when we can stay a full week. Everything at the condo was orderly and the access to the beach is great. It is the first time we have been able to take our dogs to the beach and they loved every minute of the stay.
Rita Gleason, August 2010
We really enjoyed our stay at the condo and Cape San Blas! It was a relaxing place for all of us. We had a gareat time scalloping and got our quotas for the day. Our daughter and son-in-law were the King & Queen of finding the scallops! Their first time and they loved it!
We saw 2 turtles swimming in the bay and dolphins feeding on bait fish. It was neat. We enjoyed the evening sunsets & rainbows. Dakata enjoyed waiting on the beach beach….wish he could have experienced this in his younger days. Thanks again for your all your help and we look forward to another trip to the Cape!
Kim Moseley, August 2010
Wanted to send you a follow-up to let you know how much I enjoyed my trip. Thank you for letting Zeke (Black Lab) and I be there.
Elaine Garvey, August 2010
We had an absolutely fantastic time. The location was exactly what I wanted – we took lots of lovely long walks with the dog and she came swimming with us! It was so relaxing and peaceful. I would definitely love to come back — it is a wonderful escape from the city. Thank you for all your help organizing on short notice — the ease of organizing certainly added to the relaxing experience.
Tammie Meadows, August 2010
Just wanted to let you know we loved it! I like the beach early in the morning and hd it almost to myself. It was great! Thanks for everything!
Jeff Moore, July 2010
We are on the road headed back to Tennessee. We had a fantastic time in Barrier Dunes on Cape San Blas! I have a feeling Cape San Blas will be replacing our usual summer beach destination. In fact, there is already talk among the family about a return trip sometime later this year! Thanks again for our help and assistance in arranging our vacation rental this week!
Jack H, June 2010
We had a great time. Had some family and friend join us for part of the ime. Much has changed in the 30 years (I’m 38) I have been coming there. The alligator in the state park is gone, more development…oh, and I have 3 daughters. Taking them snorkeling in the bay was the highlight of my life. I started snorkeling there at the age of 8. I and my extended family spread the ashes of my grandmother and aunt in the gulf. Cape San Blas is sacred ground for my family.
Kim Kanazawa, May 2010
It was a very relaxing stay. I was so happy to see my dog on the beach with a big happy face. We will definitely come back. Thanks for your hospitality.
Rick and Linda Miller, May 2010
We enjoyed our stay very much. The beach is absolutely beautiful. We will certainly keep the Cape in mind for future getaways. Thanks for all your help!
Karen Davis, March 2010
What a wonderful, wonderful place. We will definitely be returning. We had a great time and the accommodations were just perfect!
