*  End unit
*  Gulf views 
* 20 steps to the beautiful, pet-friendly beaches
*  Amenities galore:  beach chairs, beach cart, sand toys, laundry detergent, trash bags, dish soap (& other things to make it like home!), WiFi & free long distance.
*  Stellar Hands On Service - as little or as much as you want!!

Barrier Dunes 15 - Gulf Breeze is just  20 steps off your back deck on a boardwalk to 1 of the prettiest beaches in the world! 

You will find it well stocked & well-maintained & ready for you & your family to come enjoy a relaxing beach vacation on Cape San Blas!   Pristine white sand beaches. The last of the 'old Florida' beaches. No crowds or craziness like Panama City!

The sugar white sand won't burn your feet, the sand dunes give the setting character, & the gentle gulf waves. The fishing is great, the crabbing & scalloping fun.

The activities abound!  From boating, hiking, horseback riding on the beach, beach bonfires, ..spectacular sunsets (our beaches faces west) and tennis to impromptu socials with the friendly folks that visit Cape San Blas and barrier dun.

All of life becomes casual & fun once you breathe the glorious salt air & let go of what you left behind. Try it & you'll be coming back regularly like most of our guests (see our guest book on our website.

Barrier Dunes, our gated community, has 2 pools (1 is beach front & 1 heated 4 months of the year), lighted tennis courts, 3 fresh water fishing ponds, playground, boat parking, and pet stations throughout. Enjoy the quiet, unspoiled, dog-friendly beaches of the Florida panhandle! 

Nestled up to the state park and surrounded by water, it is the perfect place for a nature lovers explorations. Boating, restaurants and other diversions are only minutes away, yet many of our guests never leave Barrier Dunes during their vacation. 

Play tennis, swim in the pools, sunbathe on the beach while watching the ever changing scenes, fish, crab, stir up a card game or read till your heart's content. 

Pet lovers are overjoyed at being able to bring along Fido, especially those who like to make an extended stay with us.

We know what it is like not to have what you need when you're on vacation! We try & provide as many of these extras a possible so you are focused on your vacation, family & fun & not on the basics! 

We encourage you to catch your own dinner of scallops, crabs or fish & bring along some marshmallows & enjoy more (& a glass of wine) around a beach bonfire or roast hot dogs for dinner! 

Our goal is to make your stay as good as it gets. To make room for the pooch in your car, we provide every basic essential we can think of.  The amenities include everything from beach chairs to wifi, right now to laundry detergent, dish soap and trash bags (and much more.  There is a link below to a page of the amenities.  We don't stop there. Imagine a kitchen that is stocked w/spices, crock pot, & crab pot. 

Picture yourself not having to pack the car with beach chairs, the boogie board, & beach toys. If you're bringing a younger beach goer...No need to pack the pack and play or high chair! Enjoy a grill on the gulf view deck. Relax to DVD, & games. 

This is why cape escape was voted best lodging on the entire Forgotten Coast in 2015!

Don't forget your dog(s)...Cape San Blas beaches are pet-friendly & so are all of our rentals!  Large dogs are not a problem! Cape San Blas is regularly ranked the #1 Dog-Friendly Beach in America!

PARADISE!    Mar 02, 2020

review star

Our stay was so wonderful. Great location, beautiful condo and wonderful hostess! We could not have asked for more. We saw and heard the Gulf from our living room and bedrooms. So easy to just run down the stairs to the white sandy beach. Everything we needed was available and ready for us...and our dogs. Wendy responded quickly to any request. I don't know how she does it! We all loved our stay at Gulf Breeze and would recommend it to anyone who loves beautiful beaches, soft Gulf breezes, friendly people and dogs, great nights of sleep and rest, and pretty accommodations. Thanks so much.

It was a pleasure to work with Wendy and would definitely stay here again    Dec 19, 2019

My husband, our collie, and I loved our stay at the newly renovated Gulf Breeze, for a few days before Christmas, 2019.    The condo was very well stocked, had a great gulf view and an easy short walk to the beach.

Gulf Breeze was nicely decorated and the master bed was extremely comfortable!

It was a pleasure to work with Wendy and would definitely stay here again..... hopefully next December.

Great stay in Gulf Breeze. The unit was as described. Pictures were accurate. The view was great and only short walk to beach. The owner has equipped the unit with everything needed plus MORE! Easy booking and prompt response to all inquiries. Weather was wonderful-ready to return.

Amazing views and awesome place to stay!    Oct 12, 2019

review star

We truly enjoyed our stay at Gulf Breeze during fall break! It was in excellent condition and very clean. We typically prefer oceanfront for the views, however, the views from this unit were amazing as well with the palm trees and ocean just behind them. Very close to the beach. We will definitely book again, hoping to get back down next year for the 4th of July fireworks!

Cape San Blas & Gulf Breeze in Barrier Dunes are WONDERFUL!    Oct 05, 2019

review star

Everything about the Cape & this townhouse are wonderful. The beach is just steps from the door to the white sand beach and clear water. The home has everything you need and more. Beautifully updated and decorated. The only things you need are beach towels and toiletries. Without question, we would definitely stay here again.

Great Location, Excellent Service    Sep 28, 2019

review star

This was are 7th year at Barrier Dunes and it was the best ever.  Love the location so close to the beach, hope to always stay at Gulf Breeze 15, it had everything you might need and the service was the best.  I asked Wendy if the palms could be trimmed and it was done the next day. To be able to sit on the deck and see the water and hear the waves is like heaven. Everyone who stayed wants to come back! Thank you for sharing your home with me and my family great memories!

We absolutely love CSB! The cottage was newly remodeled, comfortable, clean and well-stocked. The location was perfect, easy to get to the beach and pool and a very nice view at a great price. Wendy was terrific to work with too. We will return again to this cottage!

One of the best vacations our family has ever taken! Wendy’s place was amazing and checked all the right boxes. The house was very clean and had great amenities (stocked kitchen ware, spices, etc.) The rooms were perfect sizes and nicely updated throughout. Location was great and super close to beach!

We really enjoyed our stay at Gulf Breeze 15.  The condo was beautiful and we really appreciated the spices & the plastic wraps, detergents and washer & dryer being right there.  The two granddaughters thought the loft was great.  The beach was very pretty.  I am sure we will be back someday.

Our favorite place    May 31, 2019

review star

We have been coming to Cape San Blas for the past 4 years. It is truly a WONDERFUL place to visit! We have made many special memories with our family and fur babies during our times there. We never want to leave when it's time to go. We have stayed in Gulf Breeze the last three trips and can't say enough about this place! Wendy has done an awesome job making sure that everything is perfect. The unit was completely remodeled after Hurricane Michael and there was not a thing that we needed during our stay! The views are wonderful and just steps away from the beach. We will definitely be coming back to this little peace of heaven on earth!!

2nd Time Staying and Wendy Makes Sure Everything is Perfect & Relaxing!    Apr 28, 2018

review star

One of the most relaxing places.

This was our second time staying on the Cape and dealing with Wendy.   It's definitely a no worry vacation. Wendy sees to it that everything is perfect! 

Beautiful sunsets and we had the best weather. The Pompano were plentiful and delicious!! A few day trips to Port St. Joe and Apalachicola made for a great week. Thanks again Wendy.

We had a wonderful time at the Cape, we will be back    Nov 04, 2017

We had a wonderful time at the Cape, we will be back.  We did have everything we needed, except more time to enjoy the lovely home and beautiful beach.  Our boy Champ had a great time romping in the sand.  He even got in the water and swam for the first time.

Wonderful Vacation@ Gorgeous home with everything needed o relax! Will book again!    Jun 03, 2017

review star

Thank you for a WONDERFUL vacation.  My kids are already planning the trip to the same townhome next Summer so we will be booking with you next year for sure.  Your home was absolutely gorgeous and you had everything that we needed to enjoy the relaxation we needed.  We didn’t have to purchase any dishes and you even provided us with hand soap and trash bags and the spices to cook with.  I also loved how quiet and peaceful the complex was.  The house was very clean and we had plenty of towels for the week as well.  I love beach theme and the décor made it extra special because it is decorated so cool for the beach!!!   The kids enjoyed sitting on the deck listening to the waves crash.   Another added cool bonus is the nice grill that is right on the deck to cook-out. The short walk to the beach was one of my favorites of all.  It was literally about 20 footsteps and you were on the sand.  Also the fact that you provide the beach chairs and the cart was an added bonus!!!  I can’t say enough great things about the beach either.  The water and sand were gorgeous and very family oriented.   The water was crystal clear and not crowded either!!

Also if you love fishing this is the place.  My kids and husband enjoyed going to the bay right outside the complex at the state park and they caught lots of fish and sting rays.  We also took a boat out in the bay and caught a lot of fish and sharks and that was a cool experience that my kids will remember and cherish.

Lots of great memories made in a week that I will look back on and smile big!!!!

Thank you again for sharing your beach home with us!!!  I look forward to renting next year!!!

This place is AWESOME!!!!!

Also, you are welcome about fixing the door handle.  That was very easy for Chad and no inconvenience at all!!!  That was nothing except normal wear and tear.  Your house is well taken care of.

Thank you again for sharing your paradise with us!!  I can’t thank you enough!!!

Have a great day and look forward to many more bookings with you!!!

The condo was in the perfect location and was exactly what we needed.    Dec 01, 2016

review star

Michelle and I want to thank you so much for providing us a wonderful place for the holidays. We got much needed R&R and truly enjoyed our stay! The condo was in the perfect location and was exactly what we needed. We noticed right away that we had nothing to worry about because it was all right there when we arrived. The beach was so close and we ended up catching about 30 whiting in the surf. We noticed right away that the people in the complex were super nice. The atmosphere was relaxed and the weather was awesome! I would highly recommend your place to anyone who wants a worry free vacation…short or long…to relax, enjoy the beach and the serenity of it all…Thank you again for a great get away!

It truly is one of the greatest family getaways we have known.    Aug 07, 2016

review star

This was our second consecutive year to Cape San Blas via the Barrier Dunes and booking through Wendy.  This year like last was a blast.  We did a whole lot less this year as far as the area attractions are concerned.  We brought most everything we needed with us and didn’t get out of the house too much.  It rained a lot.  That did not keep us from the beach however.  We had a blast the entire time.  Wendy and Sonni responded to every question and concern we had while we were there and they did so with a quickness.  We will definitely be coming back.  We brought our two Border Collies with us and they had an absolute scream and never wanted to leave the beach.  The word “beach” is now solidified in their minds with the Barrier Dunes at Cape San Blas.  My 3-year-old son couldn’t get enough of any of it.  Between the pool, the beach itself, and the other kids there tooling around in the sand and surf he was in bliss.  It truly is one of the greatest family getaways we have known.  The only drawback is that the time goes by way too quickly in the Cape.  We will try and amend that on our next pass with a much longer stay!

Thank you Wendy, for making this the best vacation on the gulf ever!!    Aug 01, 2016

review star

This was our first year staying on “the forgotten coast”, we certainly hope it stays that way. The beach is absolutely beautiful, clear water and very uncrowded beach almost like having a private beach. We have been vacationing along the gulf coast for over 25 years this year was our very favorite .From the very first contact,  Wendy made the planning for our vacation easy responding promptly to our questions. The pictures on the website are very accurate in representing the town home, community and beach. The townhouse was clean, spacious and comfortable. When we vacation we love to buy fresh seafood  cook in the evenings. The kitchen in BD #15 is an ideal place for cooking as it is spacious and well equipped. We plan to return next year and for many more! Thank you Wendy, for making this the best vacation on the gulf ever!!

You will be surprised how clean this pet-friendly destination is!    Apr 15, 2016

review star

This is our second time staying in Barrier Dunes and the first in this unit. The owner is very easy to deal with. All communications I sent to her were responded to very quickly and satisfactorily. The unit itself, 555 Barrier Dunes Drive, is nicely stocked with everything you need to get your beach visit started! Beach chairs are provided, which is a huge plus to me – one less thing to haul from home!

My favorite thing about Barrier Dunes, and Cape San Blas, is that they are pet-friendly!  We love taking our dogs to the beach, instead of having to board them! There are pet stations situated conveniently throughout the property with plenty of garbage cans. You will be surprised how clean this pet-friendly destination is!

Can’t wait til our next trip to Barrier Dunes!

The home was even better than we had hoped…spacious, clean & beautiful!!!    Aug 07, 2015

review star

We had a WONDERFUL time!!!  The home was even better than we had hoped…spacious, clean & beautiful!!! The weekend was truly perfect!  To be perfectly honest with you, the only time we ever left the house/beach once we arrived was for one quick trip to The Trading Post to get more ice and OJ!  

I have rented many places over the years and have never been to a place that was better stocked or provided more information about the house itself or the surrounding areas.  It is clear that you take pride in the homes you manage and of the Cape San Blas area itself.  

The beautiful beach home, white sand, crystal clear sparkling (like diamonds) water, and most importantly the laughter between good friends on this magical weekend will be memories we all treasure for a lifetime!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing the beauty of the Cape with us!!  I will be in touch soon!
