Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Full Baths, on fish pond, close to pool & tennis courts, sleeps 6

Our townhouse is located on Cape San Blas, with the Gulf of Mexico on one side and St. Joseph's Bay on the other. Located in Barrier Dunes, a gated community with private beach access. Our two bedroom townhouse is well-appointed and very clean.

Walk 2 minutes to the beach which was rated #1 beach in the nation by Dr. Stephen Leatherman (aka Dr. Beach). White sand, emerald green water, dolphins playing near shore, make this pristine beach, 18 miles long, a wonderful stretch of paradise where you can walk to their heart's content. Many times you will be the only one on the beach.

Families will not only enjoy the warm sand and water, but also the two pools, stocked fishing ponds and the lighted tennis courts in Barrier Dunes. Golfers will find the St. Joseph's Bay Country Club course (just a 15 minute drive away) challenging and scenic.

Barrier Dunes is located at the gate of the St. Joseph's Bay State Park which offers beautiful hiking trails along the bay, magnificent dunes, and outstanding bird watching. St. Joseph's Bay offers a wealth of activities including boating, kayaking, snorkeling, fishing and some of the best scalloping in the gulf.

This townhouse has three balconies, two with views of the pond and its many turtles. The decks have outside seating, a patio table with umbrella, a gas grill, and great morning sun.

The master bedroom has a king-size bed, the guest bedroom has a queen bed, and there is a fold-out queen sleeper sofa. It comfortably sleeps six. The fully-stocked kitchen has many amenities including an ice maker, microwave, dishwasher, and all small appliances.

The master bedroom has a full bath with two sinks, garden tub and large separate shower. It has a large walk-in closet.

The guest bedroom has a full bath with tub/shower combination.

The living room and bedrooms have HD-TVs with cable. DVD player is available in living room. WIFI is available.

There are beach chairs, kick-boards, some sand buckets & toys available for use in the storage room off the carport. There is an outdoor shower with hot & cold running water. It's great for cleaning sand off or washing your dog. We have two new adult bicycles (one male, one female) available for use by renters.

There are numerous turtles in the pond behind the townhouse, thus the name Turtle Townhouse. The turtles will come to see you if you come out on the deck, and they like to eat bread crumbs, if you want to feed them.

Cape San Blas is a special place. It is relaxing and you will be glad that you found this place.

About Barbara Moskol

We are retired couple from Maine(Tom is a Black Bear) & Wisconsin (Barbara is a Badger). We've lived overseas in Bangladesh & China, in our former careers.

Barbara Moskol purchased this townhome in 2015

Why Barbara Moskol chose Port St. Joe

We came to Barrier Dunes because of our hound-dog Penelope. We love that Cape San Blas is dog-friendly, and that dog-owners are responsible about keeping the beach clean. The relaxed pace here is to our liking, as it is not too crowded, has little traffic, and is not built-up. We love all the different birds.

What makes this townhome unique

We love the morning light on our deck. We loved seeing 17 turtles coming to say hello from the pond, and watch us, like we were watching them. Hearing cardinals and watching them fly back & forth, along with many other beautiful birds, is a special experience. The beautiful sunsets on the Gulf make us treasure the natural beauty here.

Great Location and Kid Friendly

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. We love Cape San Blas and visit on a yearly basis. This was a great rental and had everything that we needed. The pool is very close and the beach is not too far away with a short walk. The kids enjoyed the unit, pool, beach and, most of all, feeding the turtle's out back and using the outdoor shower. We would consider renting this place again.
