Pet-Friendly Community

at Cape San Blas

It’s true! Cape San Blas beaches are pet-friendly and allow your dogs at any time of year! Cape San Blas is one of the true “dog beaches” in Florida! Don’t just settle for a pet-friendly rental…enjoy a pet-friendly beach too! Cape San Blas is regularly ranked one of the best pet-friendly beaches in the USA.

When on vacation at Cape San Blas we enjoy having our dogs with us. They are part of the family so we decided to provide pet-friendly accommodations for you as well.  We provide dog-friendly units in which we welcome large and small dogs alike.

We have spent many afternoons & evenings watching dogs of all shapes and sizes walk the beach & chase balls in the surf. Our dogs love the water & beach & playing with the other dogs on the beach–we would like your dogs to enjoy it too! There are no time restrictions on when your dog is allowed on the Cape beaches.

Cape Escape Vacation Rentals welcomes well-behaved dogs of all sizes, so no worries about taking your large dog on vacation. We do not have weight restrictions.  Barrier Dunes has a lot of grassy areas to walk your dog(s) if you are not looking to go to the beach. Barrier Dunes provides a number of “Pet Stations” throughout the neighborhood with plastic bags so that you can easily clean up after your pet.  And, of course, dogs are welcome on the beach.  Cape San Blas, FL has one of the most pet-friendly beaches in the USA.  Please do be responsible and pick up after your dog.
