Great Place on Cape San Blas!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Serenity by the Sea during the last week in June 2016. It was the perfect location for sun, fun, and relaxation! The condo has three bedrooms, which could accomodate a whole family! But, for us it was just me, my husband and our two fur babies! The accomodations are quite comfortable! We loved having access to their beach closet where we used beach chairs and flotation devices for riding the waves! Inside the condo it was very clean with a full equipped kitchen. The whole week was relaxing, comfortable and carefree! This was our first trip to Cape San Blas and to Barrier Dunes. I would recommend these accomodations to any of my family or friends.

Memorial Day Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Serenity by the Sea is just what you would expect to find. A beautiful condo right on the gulf only a few steps from the white beaches of the cape. This was our first trip staying in the Barrier Dunes complex and I have to say it was a great experience. All of the amenities from the pool, boat parking and spray station, and even tennis courts. If you are looking for a comfortable and clean unit to stay in with your family you will not be disappointed.

We have been coming to Cape San Blas for over 7 years and this is one of the best homes I have stayed in. It is also convenient to the state park/ eagle harbor for quick launch for fishing and bay enjoyment.

Wonderful condo. This was our 3rd trip to Barrier Dunes and as they say 3's a charm. We loved everything about the condo and proximity to the beach. Owners were wonderful. The condo was fully equipped and very beautiful.

Wonderful Week!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to Barrier Dunes. The first trip was enjoyable but we loved this unit! Views and location make it a real winner. Our grandchildren were so excited to see the ocean every time they looked out. One wanted to move there.

The owners are great to work with and have provided all you need for your stay.

If you desire a more relaxed stay away from the crowds where you can simply enjoy the sun, waves, and ocean breeze then this is a place for you. We only left to pick up groceries and to snorkel in the bay where we found starfish, sea urchins and scallops.
