We stayed at Cape Escape II last week and it was fantastic! Beautiful condo. Great for dogs. Overlooks the turtle pond. Sat on the deck and fed the 50+ turtles that come to eat when they see someone out on the deck. The beach was wonderful and so close. Beautiful white sand that the dogs really enjoyed walking on and swimming in the gulf. Hope to come back again. Our second time working with Wendy and she’s great to work with.
I will share with you how I feel about Cape Escape II:
I am very satisfied with my stay here. I LOVE, LOVE the High-boy Adirondack chairs on the main deck area. What a wonderful vantage point! The pond was another very diverse ecosystem. Incredible!
We’ve been coming here every year for 13 years (except during H. Michael) and happy to see the coast coming back. The beach nourishment is great.
What a treat to come to a place where the stove has level, working burners. You have NO IDEA what crap we have been exposed to! And, your knives actually are sharp! Incredible!
Between Ft. Morgan/Gulf Shores, Alabama and here in Florida, we prefer Florida. Keep up the good work!
We loved our stay at Cape Escape II. The proximity to the beach is fantastic and the condo is wonderfully relaxing. We’d love to do it again.
Thank you for such a wonderful place for our family to enjoy (Cape Escape II)!! Beautiful home with a beautiful lake front view and pathed walkways to the beach!! People riding bikes, using kayaks, walking their dogs. Wonderful, quiet, and friendly community. We appreciated having the gas grill and utensils readily available along with a beach cart that’s made for the beach, beach chairs and umbrella made for a great beach stay. We look forward to staying here again!!
We spent a week-long vacation in Cape Escape II at Barrier Dunes and had an amazing time. The condo is spacious, comfortable and clean. It is also well-stocked with most cooking & cleaning supplies provided. There’s even an extensive spice selection! I’d never encountered that before in a vacation rental. The condo location is great too, especially the back decks overlooking the lake. The back decks face east so you get wonderful sunrise views from both. The front main bedroom deck has a good view to the gulf as well.
The unit is a short walk to the beach which was relatively uncrowded with everyone able to social distance with no problems. A short hike in either direction on the beach provides almost no one else around. We quickly found watching the sunset on the beach a must do each day. They were just spectacular! Also, Wendy was a pleasure to deal with & responded to each request almost immediately. The instructions received for the day of arrival were very thorough & easy to follow. Overall, we had an excellent time in Cape San Blas and Cape Escape II and can’t wait to return. I would definitely rent this unit again!
Thank you again for a great week. We loved every minute of being there and the weather was perfect. Already talking about when we can go again.
My wife and I had a wonderful week at the Cape Escape 2 last week. The condo was very clean, very comfortable, very quiet and had a great location. The walk to the beach was short; but drive to the state park was very short. The condo was very well-stocked. The furnishings were extremely comfortable.
The Cape has obviously fully recovered from the hurricane. The surf fishing was great; the whiting were huge with several in the 12-15 inch range. We rented a boat from Presnells and enjoyed a day of bay fishing, catching flounder and trout.
Very nice well-kept unit overlooking the pond, we enjoyed feeding the turtles every day and even had a deer show up one morning. It is a short walk to the beach where we enjoyed watching the sunsets and sitting around a bonfire in the evening. We even got to see dolphins one night. We visited St. Joe state park and enjoyed the beach and found a lot of nice sea shells. Barrier Dunes is a really nice complex. Wendy was great to work with, answered all our questions and has everything you would need already provided in the condo.
We definitely recommend Wendy’s Cape Escape.
Steve and Wendy
We just loved it! The complex is so family and dog-friendly. The condo was perfect. The area is very charming and we were able to relax and recharge. I look forward to going back again.

My husband and I would like to thank you for the lovely accommodations at the Cape Escape II. We had a wonderful time there on the Cape, snorkeling for scallops, enjoying the beach & exploring the area. We thought that the condo was very nicely maintained & managed.
We were quite comfortable and I’m pretty sure our dog wanted to stay. He enjoyed a little paddling around in the lake next to the condo & he also liked the beach – it was his first salt water experience. Being able to bring him along for the trip was truly a blessing to us (and very much so for him). He is 11.5 years old & being boarded is getting rougher on him in his old age. Having the hose downstairs to rinse him off after swimming was great and being able to wash the sand off ourselves before going inside was a good thing too.
It was a beautiful, relaxing vacation for our anniversary and we would highly recommend this vacation rental to anyone looking for a great escape!
