Top Rated Beach and Nearby State Park: The beach on Cape San Blas was Voted #1 in the USA by Dr. Beach in 2002 due to it's pristine, white-sand beaches. The beaches are quiet, family and pet-friendly. The crystal clear waters and the low surf makes swimming very enjoyable - especially with small children.

The St. Joseph Peninsula State Park is just outside the Barrier Dunes complex, and features miles of white sugar sand perfect for sunbathing, snorkeling, and swimming. Canoeists, kayakers, birdwatchers and fishermen can spend hours or days enjoying the many adventures the beaches and the park have to offer.

A boat ramp is located at Eagle Harbor on the bay side where you can go fishing, kayaking, and scalloping!!

Resort-Like Amenities and More! : The Barrier Dunes community features two swimming pools (one beach-front), two lighted tennis courts, stocked freshwater fishing ponds, a children's play area, a boat cleaning station and boat parking area. The gated-community provides an added sense of safety and security for you and your family. Children can ride their bikes and use the boardwalks to get to the beach.

For the pet-lovers who choose to bring their pets, there are pet stations throughout the property to make it easy for you to pick up after your pet.

Great beach condo on a beautiful cape!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to the Cape and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The complex is well maintained with good amenities (pools, tennis), but the real feature is the beach. It is BEAUTIFUL with white sand and crystal clear water. We were there spring break week, so there were a lot of families at the beach, but it was still very pleasant. To get away from it all, drive <10 minutes to the beaches and bay in the State Park. Kayaking in the state park was a highlight of the trip.

The condo is 'as advertised'. The rooms are very spacious. The kitchen is basic, but has everything you need (and a better selection of pots/pans and knives than most rentals.) The condo was very clean. If I had one complaint it would be about the couch in the living room - which isn't terribly comfortable - but who spends time in the living room when you are at the beach!

Cindy was super responsive as I changed details on our reservation. And I received my deposit back very promptly - within 2 business days. We would definitely go back again!

Truly a Perfect Beach Escape

  • 5 of 5

Dune's Hideaway is a fantastic place to stay, and it's just steps from the water. There are stunning views from the master bedroom, main level and one of the upstairs rooms, and the amenities are great (2 pools, tennis court, grill, etc.). We traveled to Dune's Hideaway for July 4th, and it was such a great value. The area is very secluded and the beach was not overrun with people. Everyone just leaves their stuff on the beach at night, and this is only possible because of the seclusion. Though there is not much to do on the Cape, but it is not a bad drive to get to the mainland and the seclusion is worth it. For pet owners, the beach and area are dog friendly and our dog LOVED it. If you're looking for an affordable vacation place - whether you're traveling with friends or family, this is the place to go. You will not regret it.

Also, you won't find more attentive property managers. Cindy and Debbe were super responsive and easy to work with. That is sometimes hard to get when you are dealing with rentals.

Perfect place to stay with kids and dogs!

  • 5 of 5

Property was well maintained and leasing company responded immediately to us while we were there. Furnishings were clean and well maintained. Kitchen well stocked, towels in all bathrooms were big and fluffy. Access to beach very convenient. Nice extras like a large tent and chairs to use on the beach.

A perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family vacationed at Dunes Hideaway in June 2011. I really had no idea what to expect because we had never been to Cape San Blas. I can wrap up our experience in one word: Perfect. From the time we arrived all the way through checking out of the house, our vacation was relaxing and enjoyable. The beach house had absolutely everything we needed and was in great order. Beds are comfortable, and with the sleeper sofa, it comfortably accommodated our party of 6 adults and 5 kids.

There is a boardwalk directly accessed from the back patio that makes the short walk to the beach very easy – even with a 4 year old and a 1 year old baby. The beach is amazing with white sand, beautiful dunes and emerald waters. We walked for miles and miles enjoying the natural, protected beachfront . There are no high-rise hotels or condos on Cape San Blas – so the number of people on the beach is very limited. The privacy allowed us to leave our beach tents, chairs, toys out in the sand over night without worry.

The full kitchen had everything we needed to cook meals. With the kitchen bar and ample table space, eating together as a family was no problem. We ate some meals out on the deck. Checking in at Dunes Hideaway was a breeze as was the check-out procedures. Transactions were handled with extreme professionalism and care. This is a great vacation destination that we will definitely visit again. I strongly recommend this gem if you want to get away and relax.
