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.
Pool / Spa
Great Location and Kid Friendly
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.
We are really pleased that you enjoyed your stay at the Turtle Townhouse! We hope you return again! We love feeding the turtles too!
We were pleasantly surprised by the condo. It was very nicely done, spotlessly clean and very well appointed. The grounds are great, the people are friendly and the dogs all super. Quiet, peaceful and a great place to distress. Not to mention great seafood!
We loved the Turtle townhouse. Even though the condo complex was full due to it being spring break we always could find a spot on the beach and in the pool. And there were no noise issues at all in the evening. The location was perfect- steps away from a pool and the tennis courts and just short walk to the heated pool and beach. My son loved fishing in the pond behind the condo and at other ponds in the complex. The condo was great-super clean and we loved the layout with the huge master suite upstairs. The owners were very easy to work with and very responsive to any questions we had. The only suggestions I have are for them to have actual beach towels for guest to use (I feel like the ones we used were bath towels but they were all we could find) and maybe a couple more low folding beach chairs. We will definitely be back!
Thanks for staying at the Turtle Townhouse! We will take your suggestions into consideration.
Great family vacation spot
Great place! We have a family of 6 plenty of room, short walk to the pool and beach. Great that everything you need for the beach was provided from chairs to toys even umbrella saved so much room when packing. The beaches were amazing and so many sea shells. We can t wait to come back again.
We are glad you enjoyed the Turtle Townhouse. We hope you visit again! Thanks!
Absolutely love the Cape!
This was our second time staying at Turtle Townhouse, we really enjoy how cozy it is and love that the beds are so comfortable! It's so close to the beach and pools! Another wonderful week at the Cape! We will be back next year!
We are so happy you enjoyed your time again at the Turtle Townhouse! Thanks for staying with us. We look forward to you visiting again!
Aside from the storm, simply awesome.
We really liked it. Owners made it as much like home as possible. Wonderful place.
Hope to return.
We are so glad you enjoyed the Turtle Townhouse! We hope you come back soon!
