Barrier Dunes is a family friendly community which offers not only private beach access, but also two beautiful pools, stocked fishing ponds and lighted tennis courts. Barrier Dunes is located next to the entrance of St. Joseph's Bay State Park, a coastal barrier peninsula that has been voted one of the best beaches in the US. Here you can enjoy bird watching (over 240 species sighted in the park), fishing, hiking, cycling, as well as canoeing, kayaking, and snorkeling. If you enjoy golf, the nearby St. Joseph's Bay Country Club course is only a 15 minute drive away.

About The Owner

Our family of 5 lives to travel and we all love the beach. We really enjoy all of the amenities that Barrier Dunes has to offer.

The Owner purchased this townhome in 2011

Why The Owner chose Florida Panhandle

Cape San Blas is a wonderful vacation destination that is not touristy. There are miles of beautiful white beaches and none of the crowds and highrises that you find in Destin, Panama City Beach or Gulf Shores. It is a great place to get away and truly relax.

What makes this townhome unique

Our townhouse is one of the newest in Barrier Dunes and is just steps away from the gulf front pool and beach. It is newly remodeled and has all new appliances and furnishings. We have a 40 inch plasma TV as well as TV's and DVD players in both bedrooms.

Affordable and beautiful beach getaway!

  • 4 of 5

Overall we were very pleased with our stay and accommodations. The owner was very easy to deal with and quickly responded to any questions or issues we had. I would suggest possibly replacing some of the kitchen items. The pots and pans where rusty. Also the outdoor furniture was rusty and had some sharp edges which could be a hazard. The unit itself was in good condition. We loved the proximity to the beach and the townhouse complex was well maintained. We would definitely recommend this rental to friends and family!

Perfect Week!

  • 5 of 5

Husband & I (and our lab) spent a wonderful, relaxing week, planned very last minute. The owner was wonderful to work with and made the planning as simple as possible. We booked and left 7 hours later. We have been adamant "beach front only" vacationers for over 20 years, but truly did not miss overlooking the ocean at all! Seriously! The pool was about 30 seconds away and the beautiful, extremely soft, sandy beach less than a minutes walk. The gulf/ocean never fails to disappoint, but the sunsets and star-gazing was INCREDIBLE! The townhouse had everything we needed to cook every meal, it was great to have a washer/dryer included and the price was great! SIDE NOTE (IMHO): If you are arriving after dark or later in the evening, get your groceries before you get to the Condo. There's a great Piggly Wiggly in town. We had to run back out, although a kind neighbor offered to share some coffee :). We had to have bacon!

Great holiday

  • 5 of 5

Loved how close to the beach, pool, tennis courts and ponds we were located. Grandkids came for part of our stay and we kept them very busy at the park, beach and ponds (they loved the turtles, geckos and fish). Wish the pools were a little warmer!

Loved staying here!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation at Barrier Dunes! The townhouse is certainly a place to stay if you want all of the comforts of home just steps away from the beach. The beach is beautiful and uncrowded. The complex is safe, quiet, and dog friendly! The unit was very clean and comfortable. We loved that we could leave our stuff on the beach to go back to the town home and grill dinner, then go back to the beach for sunset. When standing on the balcony off of the master bedroom, you can even see the sunrise over the bay. The owner was so easy to work with. This was a last minute trip and he answered promptly and worked with us to make our trip just perfect. It is so close to St Joseph Peninsula State park, which is pristine! These are some of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen. This property was in a perfect location and we definitely plan on visiting again soon!

We had a wonderful time at Barrier Dunes. The beach was great. The townhouse was immaculate, well stocked and a stones throw from the pool and beach. Steve was very helpful and friendly. We will certainly stay here again.

Another great vacation at the Cape

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week at this Barrier Dunes condo. Barrier Dunes is a safe, quiet, and gated community near the entrance to St Joseph Peninsula State Park. The white sand beach here is uncrowded, clean, and dog friendly! The condo was comfortable and everything was as it is described. The owner was great to deal with - he was polite and very responsive during the reservation process and answered all my questions in a timely manner, even after we arrived. The condo is located in one of the best locations in the property - very close to the oceanfront pool and clubhouse, and to the beach boardwalk. We had a great week with beautiful weather and made lots of sweet memories with my 3 year old daughter and my parents. I have spent many summers at the Cape and this was the third time we have stayed at a Barrier Dunes unit. We would definitely stay in this condo again.
