Celeste and John Jouanet (Sept./Oct 2017)
Our family has been coming to CSB for almost 10 years. This was our second time renting from Wendy at Cape Escape. Our condo was perfect with all of the amenities that we could need. The beach closet was full of all of the things you don’t want to haul from home. It was also great having laundry detergent, dish soap, dishwasher tabs, and hand soap already stocked. We are thankful and grateful for Wendy’s assistance and guidance- she was so helpful.
Peggy Huscusson (August 2017)
DearWendy …. We had a wonderful time. Can you imagine a week’s worth of SEAFOOD and ICE CREAM? I gained five pounds. HA!
Rita Hartley (May 2017)
WE HAD THE BEST TIME ON THE CAPE….LOVED THE CONDO WE STAYED IN…THANKS
Eric & Debbie Bates (April/May)
We had a great time at the Cape! Most of our time was spent at the beautiful beach! Just what we were looking for! We also met some very nice “locals” that were able to give is some great information on the area. The condo was very accommodating and comfortable! And very close to the beach. We really enjoyed Indian Pass Raw Bar! Not far from our condo and excellent, fresh seafood! Also very entertaining! We really enjoyed Apalachicola. Great little downtown area with great restaurants and shops. The Owl Café had delicious food and they allow dogs on the upstairs outdoor balcony, so that was a nice surprise! Also The Tap Room brewery did take up some of our time while there, and a chocolate and coffee shop too! We also loved Coneheads! Not too much not to like about the area!
I also passed your name and website onto a friend of mine, that was very interested in a visit!
We would love to come back next year, but may need a larger condo because other friends want to come with!
Thanks again for everything!
Felicity Palmer (April 2017) Repeat Guests
We really enjoyed Barrier Dunes and your condo was perfect and above our expectations. We used the upper balcony to enjoy an evening glass of wine and watch the sunset.
Fergus (the dog) loved his early morning beach runs and would then happily sit on the deck with his nose between the rungs watching the world go by. As tennis players, it was nice to have a couple of courts and amazingly there was always one free when we wanted to play
One week wasn’t enough but after a week socializing with friends in Naples, it was certainly a relaxing way to end our trip. Another time we would spend a day or two checking out Appalachicola which looked an attractive little town. We may well be back in contact for another trip next spring!
Kevin McReynolds (November 2016)
We enjoyed staying at Water’s Edge – Barrier Dunes #177. The kitchen was well appointed. We cooked a full Thanksgiving meal and did not have to buy additional equipment/utensils, etc. We appreciated having the washer/dryer upstairs and there were plenty of linens and towels. The access to the beach was very good and the community of Barrier Dunes was very quiet, friendly and inviting.
The beach chairs and sand cart were very much appreciated. We donated a beach umbrella to the beach gear.
We were surprised to see an armadillo sniffing through the grass outside of our unit! The bird watching was good for this time of year. We saw a bald eagle and then later saw three American white pelicans (somewhat rare) as well as other typical shore birds. Of course, the sunsets were amazing – they always are at the Cape. A few porpoises were corralling fish just beyond the sand bar and provided quite a show.
It was great to get to the Cape during Thanksgiving and we appreciate the amenities offered by #177.
Lauren Hinton (October 2016)
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!
Marlene Carver (October 2016)
Hi Wendy……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!
Lisa Shortino (August 2016)
Everything was great, sunny days and long walks on the beach. We were able to completely relax.
Cathy Cates (May 2016)
Thank you for the kind email and especially for the fantastic experience in your condo! I will take the time to write something for the website, as I found the condo well appointed and with all the thoughtful things that made the trip super easy!
Charles Hansen (May 2016)
We had a great time! We are looking forward to coming back soon!
Our rescue had an amazing time. She loved the beach and played all day.
The Allens (April 2016)
My wife and I, along with our Lab mix Shanti, just had the best beach trip ever. We loved the pet-friendly, what a treat! Water’s Edge was perfect, so close to the beach. Meeting so many nice friendly people staying there and around there was a real surprise treat, and Wendy is a very gracious host. This truly is Cape Escape as this place allows one to totally disconnect and encourages that. Don’t miss Indian Pass Raw Bar for delicious oysters and shrimp right off the boat as well as more friendly people. And the beach is the best, as the water is great at this location along with the sugar white, fine sand. The Cape is a delight and this makes it so enjoyable. We are already making plans for our return.” – Farra Allen, Marion Bodner, and Shanti.
Paula Wang (March 2016)
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.
Tom Green (November 2015)
Just wanted to let you know how happy we were with the rental. It was the dogs first time at the beach and they loved it. The beach is beautiful, the people were friendly and the rental was great – much larger than I expected. Multiple balconies, a fully stocked kitchen, laundry room, towels, crib, etc made it feel like you were at home. There were even beach toys for the toddler. Really great vacation and we’ll be back for sure.
David Leonard and Family (August 2015)
We had a great time on the Cape (including Koda) – it’s such a beautiful and relaxing area, and your place makes you feel right at home. Thanks for your hospitality. I’ll see if we can plan a bit further ahead next year, but with two sons and their significant others working relatively new jobs, plus a daughter in vet school, planning for any kind of family time is a challenge.
Sherri Daniels (July 2015)
We had a wonderful time. The condo was clean when we arrived and we had plenty of room. The kitchen had the nicest dinnerware & pots & pans to cook with than any condo we had rented before. My husband loved the short walk to the beach. We mostly just enjoyed the beach & the water and collecting shells. It would be nice if there was someone who rented kayaks on the beach. Our condo last year had one and both are son and daughter enjoyed taking it out.
Our son & daughter went horseback riding on the beach this year & loved it. We used Two Bit Stables & they were very nice. Very good with everyone including some very young children who rode with them. Reservations are best made in advance before you get to the cape because it fills up very quickly & if you wait there may not be any openings. We also walked around the shops in Port St Joe.
Our favorite restaurant is Sunset Grille. We also enjoyed Provisions, Joe Mama’s pizza (excellent), Up the Creek, & Indian Pass Raw bar. The last 3 were new to us this year but we would definitely go back. They all get a thumbs up.
We had a nice relaxing week and looking forward to next year.
Thank you for being so easy to work with.
Jaymee Baysden (July 2015)
Thank you so much for your follow up. The trip was great! We did love the Cape.
The Baker Family (June 2015)
Thank you again Wendy for making our vacation as comfortable and wonderful as it was. Sanibel has always been our favorite place to go and now we have found a beautiful beach we truly fell in love with and it was all you described it to be. We will definitely be back. We’ll be back home tomorrow relaxed and ready to get back to routine, but I’l already missing the beach.
Antonia Mantonakis & family (March 2015)
We had a great stay! I just posted a comment on your Facebook page. It really exceeded our expectations and it was such a beautiful beach. Jasper, our dog, had the time of his life, and our kids had so much fun — memories for life!
Ilan Kerman (October 2014)
Our trip was great. The weather was perfect and it was very relaxing. We look forward to coming back.
John and Tessa Alvey (October 2014)
Nice unit!! We really enjoyed the townhouse at Barrier Dunes (177). We will plan to be back at Cape San Blas and Barrier Dunes again and again. We will keep your contact information.
Dawn White (July 2014)
We had a wonderful time and loved the Barrier Dunes 177 Waters Edge. It was comfortable, clean, and everything we needed. It was definitely worth the long drive.
We spend most of our time at the beach, but took in some of the sights such as snorkeling the bay side at the state park at the end of the Cape, spent one day at Apalachicola and St. George Island (the lighthouse too!). The girls loved getting ice cream each night at the little place down the road along with the famous donuts one morning. You definitely had to get to the donut shop early or they were sold out.
I’m an avid runner and loved the bike trail so I could get in some of my training runs.
We took in a Sunset Cruise one evening and shark fishing another night. Bethany our 14 year old caught an 8ft nurse shark in which the captain stated was the biggest shark caught on the type of pole she was using. All the other guys on the boat were jealous…. J
Thank you again for our comfortable stay and making our family vacation a memorable one!
Gill Pias (Repeat Guest – July 2014)
Thanks. We had a great time. I’ve attached a couple of photos as well.
Snorkeling and Boating in St. Joe Bay just outside of Barrier Dunes
Oleg Poliakov (April 2014)
Our vacation time was AWESOME! We went for boating, fishing, horseback riding, biking, of course swimming!
We were impressed with everything we’ve seen and glad that we’ve made that decision. We had such a great opportunity to visit one more beautiful place on this planet! PARADISE!
Even our dog seemed to be happy.
We loved non-crowded beaches and very nice community. The condo felt like home.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH! We are planning to come back some time.
Rita Baker-Brockman (March 2014)
Thank you Wendy…. The trip was perfect. It turned out to be just me and my dog. R&R was practically prescribed by my doctor, so I appreciated the time alone. The only pictures I took involved a friend’s daughter’s school project / version of flat Stanley….
I will definitely contact you again in the future… Your condo is very nice! It was also nice walking down to where my property is – I sat on that beach and tried to visualize my future retirement home.
The Roushornes (February 2014)
We had a very relaxing time and were blessed with good weather during our stay. Buddy loves to sunbathe and the balcony off the living area provided him the perfect perch! The accommodations were well appointed and perfect as a ‘dog friendly’ environment.
Peg & Jim Hamilton (February 2014)
Thanks for your kind email. We had an uneventful trip back home, but were greeted with an icy driveway/walk and a snow-filled backyard! UGH!!
We so enjoyed our stay at Barrier Dunes 7, and have already decided to come back next yr. for 4 weeks instead of two. We’ve already picked out the unit and are just waiting for you to post the prices on your website. We will keep watching and will contact you when we have finalized our plans.
I’m including 2 pictures. Molly the Wonder Dog fell in love with CSB and made so many doggie friends. She had more fun than anyone!!
Nancy Jenson (January/February 2014)
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Barrier Dunes 177 – Waters Edge. It was wonderful to have found such a beautiful, relaxing spot where our dogs are welcome. 177 more than met our expectations.
We are already thinking about reserving for next year.
Susan O’Neal (December 2013)
The condo was great and Amy and I had a fantastic holiday. All the people I met were so friendly. I hope we can return in the near future for another fantastic holiday. Thank you. I hope your Christmas was merry, as well.
Fred Kernohan (October 2013)
We had a GREAT time! We love Cape San Blas and your home. It was comfortable, pretty and organized.
Marjorie Ferrer (April 2013)
We had a lovely time and the Cape is so nice. We have been on St George Island and in Apalachicola and even came over to Indian Pass but we had not driven on to the Cape. I like it more than SGI. I do plan to come back and would love to stay a month during October or March.
We went to the Indian Pass Raw Bar and it was really crowded with a big wedding crowd, so we went on into Port St Joe and had some raw oysters at the marina there near the Piggly Wiggly. My son-in-law was looking for an oyster fix! I picked up some snapper and fresh shrimp at Triple Tails and we cooked in after that.
We did not explore around very much because Maria isn’t back to 100% energy-wise and with a one month old, we just played with the baby a lot! I held him for naps two days in a row! They pushed him in the stroller on the beach a few times. We set up our Easy Up one day when it wasn’t too windy and all napped down on the beach! We enjoyed all the fires in the evenings. People dig big giant pits for the fires and for themselves to sit in and then just bury everything when they are done. That is pretty neat! And of course the stars were wonderful – have not seen the milky way in a while so it was nice and clear most nights!
I will send you some pictures in another email. Joe’s filing system on line and the way I look for things just do not match and he has been off on jury duty all week! So as soon as I can get him to show me where he stored them, I will select some good ones and send on your way!
Melissa Caden and Family (March 2013)
We had a wonderful stay at Barrier Dunes 177, and our entire family was very sad to leave. I found the unit very clean and accommodating and thoughtfully stocked. I felt comfortable and relaxed the entire week. Although it was cold and windy for most of the week, though, we did enjoy other activities like kayaking, horseback riding, sailing, bike riding, camp fires on the beach, and ice cream at Coneheads. We definitely enjoyed the Cape and the gorgeous, clean beach and Gulf….we’ll make plans to return.
Frances Cochrane (Jan – March 2013)
Barrier Dunes is great and the beach fantastic for the dog. Lots to do in the area. We especially loved Apalachicola and Windmark Beach. We went to quite a few restaurants, our favorites being Seafood Grill and Caroline’s in Apalachicola. To be honest we thought the Sunset Coastal Grill in Port St. Joe to be a little overrated.
We are really not sure yet about our plans for next year. Our dog is very old And not well. If he is no longer with us we will probably go to Spain. But if he is will let you know about renting again.
Thanks Wendy for all your help.
Stevi Driver (March 2013)
Wendy, it was absolutely WONDERFUL! Thank you so much!
I’m sorry I’ve been so long in getting back to you. I’ve been paying the price for taking some time off. We had a wonderful time at Waters Edge! We relaxed and ate and relaxed some more. It was a blessing to not have a cell signal. The dogs were just ecstatic about the beach. They wanted to be out there every second. We will certainly have a fond place in our hearts for this trip, and will want to come back soon.
I need to ask if the cleaners found a Nook reading tablet. We can’t find it anywhere, and we were afraid we might have left it there. Would you please let us know?
Ashley Boggs & Ronnie Marshall, July 2011
We had a wonderful time. The accommodations were perfect. It has been our favorite place to stay so far in 6 years. The only wish we had was for more time. When we come back and we will, a week or more is necessary. We never made in to Port St. Joe to visit! Just passed through. We snorkeled all day. And played on the beach in the evening with flash lights and my son fished. The dogs were in heaven as well, my cocker spaniel loves to swim in the waves. And my 15 year olds had plenty of people to talk too!! Great family vacation. Thank you for sharing it with us.
Georgia Matheson, June 2011
We had a great time at the Cape! Whiskey, my dog, really enjoyed his vacation. He was so funny…like a kid seeing sand and water for the first time. I’m glad no one could go with us. Whiskey and I had a good time, just he and I. I left him at the townhouse and would go to the pool (which was very nice). When I came back he was lying at the top of the stairs waiting for me.
I hope to go back again. Thank you for your help!
Harvey Leake, May 2011
I wanted to thank you for everything. We had an amazing trip! I can’t wait to go back to the Cape. Jackson, our dog, loved it! It was his first time at the beach! The townhouse was beautiful and we left it as we found it. Please keep me posted with any specials or news! Thanks again, can’t wait to be back!
Carol Bakkum, February 2011
We loved our stay. The weather was gret, the beach wonderful and loved our accommodations. Still talking about it. We would be interested in staying the full month of February next year. Wait to hear from you.
Angela Palmer, February 2011
We had a great time! Waters Edge was very nice, comfortable and clean. We loved the beach. It was so clean and there were hardly any people around so it was very relaxing. I hated to leave and I’m already thinking of when I can go back.
