Katie Moore (October 2016)
We had a GREAT time and didn’t want to come back home. I forgot to write in the book.
Debbie and Steve Britton (September 2016)
We had a wonderful week! The weather was great and we were on the beach and at the pool almost every day. We did explore around the area. The condo was great for the four of us and it was so nice not having to pack towels, sheets, dish and laundry soap, etc. Thank you for your help and the directions and information you sent. This was a wonderful way to end the summer! Thanks again!
Sandy Dean (July 2016)
We absolutely loved it. Wendy! You will be hearing from us again but for a longer stay. Thank you for all the great info and communicating so well. It meant a lot to us.
Lee Ellis – Repeat Guests (July 2016)
It was another great vacation! My mom was unable to make it this go around, but my cousins and I had a wonderful time!
Joanne Marcet (June 2016)
Thanks Wendy! I am certain we will return
The dog beach was the highlight for the 3 of us.
Wendy Northington & Family (September 2015)
Happy Labor Day! We have returned home from Cape San Blas & are all extremely sad our mini vacation is over. We LOVED it! The condo was great & had all the amenities we needed. Thank you so much for everything! We will definitely be back again soon. I’ve already recommended my Mom & sister call you for their next beach trip! I couldn’t say enough great things about the location & the complex.
Jana and Eric Davis (August 2015)
Our family decided on a last minute get away and stumbled upon Cape Escape during our search. From the initial point of contact throughout returning home, the communication & customer service were like nothing we had experienced before. When we arrived we were super impressed by how “homey” the condo felt. We were immediately comfortable, were impressed with how well stocked the condo was with everything we needed and loved that the climate control was very comfortable.
Leslie Belskie (August 2015)
My husband, his daughter and now fiance spent 4 days and 3 nights in an absolutely beautiful condo, that had everything you could need! We were about 100 steps away from the Gulf, and this beach has been ranked #1 in beaches in USA!
There is plenty of coastline so you feel like the beach is your personal little piece of heaven. Dogs are allowed everywhere. Everyone seemed to be responsible for their dogs and often we would run into fellow dog owners and strike up pleasant convos while our dogs made new friends.
I recommend this place to anyone who loves to swim, feel white sand between your toes & swim with your pooch.
David Bradshaw (June 2015)
Once we walked into that wonderful townhome, all of our stress went away! The townhome was incredible! The beach was incredibly beautiful & we fell in love with the fact that there were not many commercial businesses around & we had no cell phone signal. Just us & the beach no distracting noises either electronically or from outside businesses. We loved it! We felt like we were on an island!
While we were there we ate at some great quality seafood establishments. We also went horseback riding on the beach which was absolutely 1 of the best things we have ever done. We also tried kayaking. We really liked it as well. Thank you for everything & I am certain we will be returning sometime next year!
Gary Ferrell (May 2015)
We had a wonderful time & the condo was very nice & very, very clean. The way the condo was supplied was just incredible. You and your staff are very professional & were always available. Hopefully we will be returning later in the summer.
The Zentz Family (August 2014)
Julie, Dudley and I had an amazing time at the Cape. It was indeed the perfect getaway and was even more special because we were able to bring “the Big Man” along with us. Turtle Tracks (Barrier Dunes 188) was ideal for us and as you described….left us wanting nothing!
We met several new friends on the beach, all of whom spoke very highly of you and your properties and we couldn’t have been more content. I am attaching some pictures of Dudley who enjoyed the waves to the point that each evening we had to DRAG him out of the water!
Stephanie Glickauf (June/July 2014)
We had a great time at Turtle Tracks (Barrier Dunes 188). The condo had everything we needed and then some. The beach was beautiful and the kids loved the pool too.
Carlye Dooly (May/June 2014)
Turtle Tracks was very clean & comfortable! We had a wonderful time and wished we could have stayed longer. Thanks again for the wonderful accommodations.
Jason Green (March 2014)
Thanks again so much for helping us out with Turtle Tracks. It was awesome as all your rentals always are !
Greg and Terra Coontz (March 2014)
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and have already made plans to return. Thanks so much for such a great experience here at the Cape!!
Dave Roth (March 2014)
We had two great beach days and really enjoyed our time here. Friendly folks, very laid back, uncrowded, and so great to be able to take our golden on the beach. A wonderful, special place and everything as you said it would be. We’ll have to figure out a time to come back. Please add me to your newsletter.
Sparky, Georgia and Ashlyn Stewart (Dec. 2013/January 2014)
We had a great time at the Cape. We hadn’t stayed at Barrier Dunes in years (since we sold) so it was great to see how well maintained the grounds were and how gorgeous the beach looks!
The unit was very nice and really well equipped. I liked being on the back side of Barrier Dunes (very quiet) too. We were able to have a bonfire on the beach New Years Eve and enjoy all the fireworks. It was nice to just chill out and relax after the holidays. Our dog, Roxy loved taking beach walks as did Ashlyn and myself!
Thanks for making everything so easy and when we’re ready to return to Barrier Dunes we’ll let you know.
Glen Smith (December 2013) Yes, Had a great time, thanks! Very nice place and well maintained! Yes, found the place very comfortable and relaxing.
Did some kayaking (and fishing) in Eagle Harbor on Friday….very windy! Didn’t catch any fish that day, but saw many dolphins and one dolphin came up approximately 15 yards from me! Did more fishing on Saturday in Port St. Joe and caught some spotted sea trout but no keepers, still had lots of fun!
Got some pictures attached. May send more in another email (I don’t Facebook).
Thanks again for everything and will definitely let you know when I decide to come again (probably this coming Spring) !
Vicki Barnett (September 2013)
So sad vacation is over. We had a great adventurous time on the cape and the surrounding forgotten coast area. It is a uniquely beautiful place. I will send some photo’s soon. 188 Turtle Tracks was a very pleasant place. The extras such as chairs, fishing rod holders and even the sand buckets were things that made our beach days a little nicer. Hope to visit the area again someday and have raved to my friends about this unspoiled area.
John Brearley (August/September 2013)
Everything was perfect.
Steven Cowart (June 2013)
Thanks Wendy. We had a great time the weather cooperated and we hit the beach every day. My dog enjoyed the beach too although she was mostly afraid of the water but enjoyed her walks in the beach. We ate at Indian Pass Raw Bar on Friday. That was definitely a unique experience and the food was good. Couldn’t believe how crowded it was.
The condo was very comfortable and will definitely call you again for a Cape Escape.
Phillip McClellan (June 2013)
Everything was perfect! We definitely want to return now that we know more about the location and surroundings.
I’m sure you have plenty of pictures but we liked these.

Turtle Tracks Owners, March 2013
Before buying Turtle Tracks in 2012, we rented from Wendy for several years. The service and quality of the units she offers is simply unmatched in the area or elsewhere. As an owner, I feel like I did as a guest: Wendy has my back. After all our renovation and redecorating early this year, it was without hesitation I turned the keys over to Cape Escape Vacation Rentals. I trust Mike and Soni implicitly to take care of the property and know that Wendy will cover my renters giving 100% satisfaction! We love being able to share our home and the Cape with our new guests! Welcome!!
NEW RENTAL MARCH 2013
Turtle Tracks underwent a major renovation in January – February, 2013. The owners meticulously created a space perfect for themselves (part-time residents) and for their guests. New furniture, electronics, kitchen countertops, additional cabinet, paint, linens, decor are just a few of the things that kept the owners off the beach and running to Home Depot during Jan-Feb 2013. They look forward to hearing about their guests’ stay in Turtle Tracks!
