I just spent three weeks in Barrier Dunes on Cape San Blas. My husband was with me for a few days and my daughter joined me for my last week there. We stayed in Shore Thang #2 which was managed by Wendy Jackson. I can’t say enough good things about the experience from start to finish. First of all, Wendy was immensely helpful, prepared with any information needed and responded immediately to any concerns or questions. The unit itself was sparkling clean and lovely; every possible need had been anticipated and provided for.

The pet-friendly gated community was nestled on beautiful park-like grounds with ponds, fountains, and many lovely observation decks, gazebos, and walkways. The beach was pristine with beautiful white sand and the sunsets were spectacular.

Barrier Dunes is next door to a state park with access to St. Joseph Bay. It is stunningly beautiful park and a must-see. Many things to do there.  We took several day excursions to Mexico Beach, Port St. Joe, and our favorite, Apalachicola. Sitting bayside at Boss Oyster with our dog, while eating fabulous local seafood was a highlight.

But upon return from our excursions we always commented that nothing we had seen was as beautiful and peaceful as Cape San Blas. It is rare to go somewhere and find that every single aspect of the experience exceeded your expectations but this was one of those rare times.
