It was all your website said it was and more! We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our stay at Barrier Dunes #12, Pelican View. Such a wonderful property. Upon arrival we had NO second thoughts about our choice for a vacation spot and no surprises (except how nice the condo and grounds really were). Even the weather cooperated with clear skies, clean beach sand, warm water and tropical breezes. Everyone from the guests to the people taking care of the property were very friendly. It was refreshingly nice to know we could leave our things on the beach and outside the condo overnight without fear of losing them. The people at the complex were definitely a nicer class that know how to enjoy themselves tastefully.

Thanks very much to the owners (the Evans family) for offering a venue that enabled a relaxing and gratifying vacation experience.

Such a wonderful property.

Absolutely the best of the best! Oh, my goodness! Having your first cup of coffee in the mornings on the balcony of the master suite was amazing! And so easy since we had the lovely “coffee station” right in the suite…..very thoughtful!

This was our 5th trip to the Cape and we honestly didn’t even consider booking with anyone else. We’ve really come to appreciate all the extras that you include, the way you have simplified the check-in and check-out procedures, the beautiful, immaculate condos and, of course, the gorgeous, uncrowded beach!

Maisie, our little Westie, had a great time! She loves the beach (and just looks so adorable because she is the exact color of the white sand!) Our friends (many of whom are more familiar with Panama City and Destin) simply cannot believe that we put our “beach stuff” out on Saturday when we arrive and don’t bring it in until we have to leave for home. It just doesn’t get much better than that….

Our 2 sons and their lovely wives were able to join us this year. Although we all live within 30 minutes of each other, we seldom have time to just relax and be together. One evening we bought some fresh shrimp and prepared a wonderful scampi with angel hair pasta. We all ate together out on the deck as the sun was setting. There was a nice breeze and we had such a good time laughing and talking over one another. That is a memory I will always cherish…

Every year we think we’ve had the best vacation ever and this year was certainly no exception. We can’t wait to get back to the Cape!

Thank you for everything you continue to do to make our experience enjoyable and stress-free. We’ll be in touch as soon as we know how our schedule looks for next time.

Again, many, many thanks!

Absolutely the best of the best!

Thank you for returning the deposit …really appreciate the timeliness of getting that done.

We had a GREAT time. It is easy to see why people come back there time and time again. The view was so beautiful and we really enjoyed our unit. We met our neighbors on either side and they were so very nice. In fact, I have some pictures of the little boy in #11 when he was fishing that I will send you to forward on to them.

It was so great to be able to have Biscuit down there with us and everyone is so great with their dogs there. She loved the beach and went kayaking with us too!

Thanks so much for your help in getting everything arranged. We will definitely be talking to you again for future ventures!

We had a GREAT time. Will be future renters!

We did make it home safe and sound….and sad! We’ve done numerous trips, Disney Cruise, all inclusive resorts etc., but this was the first vacation we’ve ever taken as a family where I had tears in my eyes when leaving! We literally did NOTHING! I cooked all the meals at home and spent some very valuable and hard to get family time with my 2 girls and husband.

While we were there we saw dolphins! One even swam about 5 feet way from a guy out in the water to get her baby away from him…it was so awesome. The home made us feel comfortable right way. We settled in as if we had lived there forever. We truly had a great time!

We will come back for sure. I am hoping to do a family reunion there with some of my sisters and their families. My husband travels A LOT. We don’t see much of him. On trips he is usually on the phone. Not at Cape San Blas…due to the no cell phone or limited cell phone coverage, we had him all to ourselves. It was really great for girls to have their dad’s undivided attention. Thanks again!

I had tears in my eyes when leaving.

We had a fantastic time. I’ve never been to a rental that was so well-stocked, especially the kitchen. The weather was gorgeous and the beach is the nicest I’ve seen (and I grew up in St. Pete and saw lots of beaches!) Our granddaughter loved her first experience with the gulf and we were all grateful we didn’t have any oil spill problems. I know we’ll plan to go back to the area again; in fact, my husband was asking about going in the winter on the drive home. Thanks for everything. You did a great job of keeping us posted about everything and that really helped us know what to expect!

We had a fantastic time at Cape San Blas!

Our trip to the Cape was absolutely fantastic! Pelican View was awesome and had everything we needed. My husband enjoyed the trip very much….many changes since he was last there, but all GOOD! We had 1 stormy day but we went exploring in Port St. Joe, Indian Pass, Apalachicola and St. George Island. Ate at the Indian Pass Raw Bar and at Boss Oyster House in Apalachicola—both places were AWESOME! Nothing like fresh raw oysters, steamed shrimp and bay scallops!! We went horseback riding on the beach with “Two-Bit” and they were great…beautiful horses…lots of fun! Being on the Cape with the beach literally at our back door (and having the beach practically ALL to ourselves) was so amazing…we got to see several pods of dolphins swim by one morning RIGHT in front of us! Must have been 14-16 of those beautiful creatures! All in all, I have to say it is one of the BEST vacations EVER…we will definitely be back.

Thank you SO much for all your attention to details, your timely responses to emails and for helping us plan and experience such a wonderful vacation!

BEST vacations EVER

Pelican View was fantastic! We thoroughly enjoyed our week there. The only bad thing was we had to come back to the “real” world & couldn’t stay longer. The gulf front decks were beautiful!

As the Cape is unspoiled by high levels of commercialism, the stars are brilliant and plentiful. The evening breezes were spectacular.

The rental itself had plenty of room for my husband, mother, father, daughter, son, nephew and me. It was clean, comfortable and well appointed. The beach closet had plenty of chairs, toys, cooler and more. The walk to the beach was very short and easy.

We only ate out once (Dockside’s in Port St. Joe) and used the kitchen for the rest of our means. It was well stocked and made mealtime wonderful. We saw dolphin, deer, turtle tracks and turtle nests and the most amazing bioluminescent display in the surf at night. Fires on the beach were also special. My daughter very easily made friends on the beach and at the pool. Also— when you are told cell service is spotty—that’s no joke!! Enjoy that and unplug!

This was our 1st stay at the Cape so I cannot speak of any of the other rentals, but if Wendy’s other rentals are as inviting—you have nothing to lose and everything to gain! Her customer service & attention to detail is on point and commendable. It was a pleasure working with her and I can’t wait to return to the Cape!

Pelican View was fantastic!

We’ve been to The Cape many times but this is our first time staying in Barrier Dunes. Pelican View was in excellent condition and by far, the best “stocked” home we’ve ever stayed in. Usually, we have to buy the basics–salt, pepper, olive oil, cooking spray, foil, trash and sandwich bags, etc etc. However, we were pleasantly surprised to find it all there. Unlike many others places we’ve stayed in at The Cape, the unit was also exceptionally clean–another nice surprise. The AC worked BEAUTIFULLY and the extra (minisplit) unit in the 3rd Floor Master was much appreciated. This unit is right on and looks straight at the water–the VERY BEST views of The Gulf. Also, our deck was VERY private. Captains chairs were a nice touch for dolphin and turtle watching.. Nicely decorated and very well taken care of. The community pool was also a huge hit with our kids…Big kudos to the owners as well as the Mgmt Company. We will definitely be back.

The best “stocked” home

We had a wonderful time at Cape San Blas. This is our 3rd time visiting the Cape and staying at Barrier Dunes Pelican View (12). We love it. Condo was well stocked. We built bonfires on the beach at night and met lots of new friends. We also went horseback riding on the beach at sunset which was wonderful! I’m sending you some pictures of our fun times. As you can see our dogs had just as much fun as we did!!

Thanks again for everything. We will be back next year!

The condo was absolutely perfect!

I have to tell you, our stay there completely exceeded our expectations! I don’t even know where to begin! We loved staying there, you think of absolutely everything, so it was truly like staying in a home! To be perfectly honest, it was even cleaner than mine!

I cannot even begin to tell you how much we enjoyed the deck and beach! My 14-year-old “puppy” was running in the sand and running along the shore. It was the most relaxing and soul recharging trip for me in many, many years!

I really appreciate your quick response as well as Stan’s help to replace the smoke alarm battery.

I am sorry, however, that we did not get to meet up at the beach and get to share a beer with you…so next time! I already need to start planning our next trip to help keep me going!

We loved staying there
