The Bateman Family
Just spent a week on The Cape. Booked a condo with Wendy through Cape Escape Vacation Rentals and stayed in Cape Escape I at Barrier Dunes. Wendy was great. We can’t say enough great things about her and her thoughtfulness during the entire process and the time leading up to our trip. Her list of amenities are amazing. You can tell she is a mother who remembers how much work it is for mom to get the family ready for a week long trip! With 3 children in tow our list of items we needed to take was very limited considering everything that was already available at the house. She even called me a few days before our trip and gave us some insight on where to take our pontoon in the bay in hopes of seeing some dolphins. Her advice did not disappoint! We came so close to a group of dolphins my daughter nearly touched one!! Although the Gulf was much more rough than what we have seen in the past, a week on The Cape is Heaven in our minds. We look forward to returning. Hopefully sooner than later! Thanks again Wendy!! We really do appreciate you and all you have done to assist in making our trip amazing!
I came back to edit and add that our house was extremely clean when we arrived! Despite the current pandemic we did not feel unsafe staying in this house. The carpet throughout was very nice and clean and the bathrooms were as well!

Hubby and I had a great escape to Wendy’s Cape Escape 1 on Cape San Blas. Her reservation, packing info, and check-in information was clear and easily followed. The rental home was immaculately clean and very cozy. The AC temp of the home was perfect. The walk to the beach was short and easy, equivalent to a typical city block.
The beach chairs supplied with the unit in the carport were lighter and more easily carried to the beach than the camp chairs we brought – much appreciated. When we grew tired of bobbing and swimming in the gulf and lounging on the beach, and wanted to retire to “home” Cape Escape, the back porch was our preferred hang out place.
It is situated facing NorthEast, so lounging there from mid-morning on into hot afternoon means shade and breezes. Plus it is surrounded by palm trees that further shade and give some privacy – and the birds nesting in the trees were interesting to watch. Delightful.
We enjoyed grouper and scallops dinner at Provisions, 15-minute drive inward to Port St. Joe. Note: Basically all Cape San Blas properties along the entire cape involve steps… lots of them. The homes are on sturdy stilts, with the living quarters a full flight above the parking space, and another flight or 2 typically to bedrooms. Accessing the beach here also involves steps up and over the sand dunes, so including this note for renters looking to bring mobile limited family/friend members. Thanks Wendy for a great get-away!
William & Martha Price
A paradise for the entire family, including the furry ones. Excellent place to relax and forget about the stress of life. The house had everything we could possibly need and more. It is decorated nicely and kept really clean. Our dogs had a blast and we finally had the vacation we dreamed about it. We wanted a place to really rest, enjoy great views and be worry-free about our dogs because they were with us. It worked really great. The communication since inquiring, reserving, getting ready to travel and after completing the trip was 100% best customer service ever. Wendy is great, she kept us informed and she was open for any questions we might have. We are definitely going back and we have already told our family and friends about the place and posting great pictures on Facebook. We loved our stay and can't wait to go back. Thank you for everything.
The Nicholson Family
We had the very best time. It was wonderful. Your place was absolutely perfect. Thank you for being so thoughtful to provide all of the things you did… We are no longer PCB people J. I can’t think of any reason we would ever choose PCB over The Cape. I have viewed your other properties and we’ll be making another reservation with you in the near future.
Our pups loved Cape Escape 1 just as much as we did! We had an absolute blast. The closet had plenty of beach items for us to use which made packing a lot easier. We were able to bring out canopy out to the beach using the beach cart which we were so thankful for. Wendy is wonderful and we will continue coming back for more fun. She answered all of our questions and more. Can’t wait to go back!
We had a lovely time. The home was wonderful and so comfortable. Thanks for accepting the last minute request! We will be back.
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cape Escape I In Barrier Dunes. The resort/neighborhood was so friendly and well taken care of. The Management made it so easy to arrange. Our place was beautifully furnished and clean. We will definitely be back! Is is definitely a part of the amazing memories we had on the Cape.
I'm so glad you and your family made great memories at the Cape! I'm glad you enjoyed Cape Escape I and hope you will come back and enjoy it again soon! Wendy Jackson

My husband and I spent 6 weeks at Cape Escape I this year. It was our first stay at Barrier Dunes and it was delightful! The accommodations were exactly as advertised. The unit was very clean and comfortable and was better stocked than any place we’ve stayed at the Cape! It was a very short walk to the beach. Our puppies loved their walks on the beach and around the neighborhood. Even though the Cape area was hit very hard by the hurricane, everyone seemed so appreciative that the snowbirds returned. The folks at Barrier Dunes worked particularly hard to get the community and the beach areas cleaned up and ready for guests. The owner (Wendy) was easy to work with and very responsive to questions and issues that came up. Thanks for a great winter respite! We give Cape Escape I âï¸âï¸âï¸âï¸âï¸ !
This is a perfectly appointed, very clean, pet friendly place! The home has everything you need. Literally. Don't pack beach chairs, you won't need them... they are waiting for you. I am a germ freak, so much so that I travel with my own cleaning supplies. I didn't need them! The place was so clean and it immediately allowed me to relax. The beach is beautiful and not crowded. It is a slow paced, laid back, family environment. Perfect for a relaxing and rejuvenating break from our busy lives. Everything closes by 9, so no party life will keep you awake. Most restaurants in the area are pet friendly, as are several of the stores. Don't miss this gem. Wendy is amazing. She will make sure you are well cared for.
We will probably never go anywhere else in Florida again after visiting Cap San Blas. It was perfect. The beaches were white and the ocean was clear especially on our second day. If you bring groceries, there’s really no need to leave. The beach was just a short walk and I felt like the condo was very reasonably priced especially if you had another couple to go with.
We were actually there for a short “honeymoon” after getting married on Thursday and it meant a lot to be able to bring our dogs with us. One of our dogs can be a bit difficult, but he behaved so well and they both enjoyed lounging under our tent on the beach with their doggie “parents”.
Wendy was excellent to communicate with and the condo was probably one of the nicest places I have ever stayed. Well stocked with all the necessities and extremely comfortable. Thank you for a great trip and we look forward to visiting again soon! Kaitlyn
We had a great time. We hope to come back again.
Bill & Cheryl Hines
This was our 3rd stay at Barrier Dunes in the last 4 years. We have a golden retriever, like so many guests there, and of course the dog-friendly environment of Barrier Dunes, the beach and Port St. Joe make it ideal for us.
Our favorite rental is Barrier Dunes 67 - Cape Escape I because Lady can lay on the deck and watch us play tennis which we really enjoy. The unit is very comfortable and homey, perfect for us and Lady. It has everything we need to feel at home!!! We go to the beach 3-4 times a day and Lady loves swimming in the waves. We always find Cape San Blas very enjoyable and relaxing. Thanks so much Wendy!
Thank you so much! We had a wonderful time and the condo was terrific. It really had everything we needed and it was great to have the little things like spices and dish detergent on hand. It really felt like we were in someone’s private residence rather than a rental.
Bob & Carol
Carol and I have vacationed in Gulf Shores, AL every year for the last 6 years. We were unable to find a place this year that would allow us to bring Wrigley, our 9-month-old Golden Retriever. As a result, we searched and ran across Cape Escape.
This vacation has changed our thoughts on vacationing. We absolutely had the best vacation in our 38 years of marriage. The most attractive parts of your vacation home were:
The house was extremely clean, well maintained, well stocked and very comfortable.
The gated community provided the extra security that makes you feel great especially when waling a 9-month-old puppy at 3 a.m.
The paved streets and dog exercise areas made our afternoon walks more enjoyable and conducive to cleaning up after our pet.
The beach was very clean, with fewer people than we're accustomed and because almost everyone had a pet, we had things in common with almost everyone and it was real easy to make friends.
On past vacations we spend most of our time and money eating out; this vacation we cooked at the house, used the gas grill and only ate out once.
As soon as we get over the shock of being home and returning to work, we will want to begin planning for next year’s trip. Thank you for all the help you provided us
Pure Heaven. This place is ideal for that perfect quiet beach holiday you dream about to tropical islands. I was at the beach 3-4 times a day and most times it was just me and my 2 pups for miles. The beach is stunning, white sands, warm water. But the best part is the condo – fully stocked and prepped to be the best beach bungalow you’ll ever need. My 2 Labrador puppies loved it, prob more than I did
We enjoyed our time at Barrier Dunes immensely! The home was so comfortable it was almost like being at home!
We enjoyed exploring the beach and looking for shells. We also went to St. Joseph State park and checked out the beach and dunes there. Another day we rented kayaks and paddled around the bay. We also took a trip to Apalachicola and did some souvenir shopping and ate lunch at the Owl Cafe….delicious! We also went to Mexico beach and had dinner at a seafood restaurant called Toucans. Towards the end of our trip we to St. George Island….very beautiful!!
This was the first time we traveled with our pups! It was great to see all the pet owners walk their dogs throughout the complex. We enjoyed our time with like-minded pet owners on the beach. One of our pups even made a friend with the dog of a family sitting next to us!
We enjoyed the privacy of Port St Joe as we do not care for the high rise condos & commercial hotels. Loved the morning walks through the state park next door!
We can’t wait to return and would love to book 416 Barrier Dunes Dr. (Barrier Dunes 67) was it was very convenient to get to and from the beach!
Had an amazing time at your place , it was very clean and very accommodating. The cape is very family oriented and pet friendly which made it very special to be able to bring our four legged baby..I truly enjoyed the visit there, life is about making memories and we definitely made a few. My son got engaged on the beach at sundown and the event was amazing!!! Looking forward to coming back real soon…Thank you again!!!
