Best dog-friendly vacation home ever! Walk right off deck to beach!    Aug 31, 2019

This was by far the most beautiful beach front home in the area! You literally walk out from your deck to the beach, which was so nice when you have a dog or small children who might need to go back in for a break.. The owners were so nice and helpful for anything we needed, and we will definitely be back!!!

Nancy Windam

Great Amenities and Views! Definitely Recommend!    Aug 06, 2019

Great amenities, beautiful views. Everyone was very helpful. Our pups enjoyed the stay as well. Would definitely recommend.

Wendy Jackson's reply:

So glad you enjoy Paradise - Barrier Dunes 11! Hard to beat the views! I look forward to having you and your family (and pups) back again soon! Wendy Jackson

Perfect Vacation    Mar 23, 2019

We stayed in Wendy's townhouse. Was in a perfect location. We just walked out the back door, to the beach. Since it is in a gated packed beach or party goers. Was the perfect beach for a family. The townhouse was fully pretty. The only downside, was the devastion of Hurricane Micheal remains. Since there is so much road construction, it took us 2 hours to drive to Panama City, which is only 50 miles away. But, that meant, more days to just relax and sit on the beach and watch the dolphins! We loved our trip!!!

Perfection!!!    Mar 09, 2019

Our stay was the perfect escape from the daily grind. The condo itself was beautiful. Great location, clean, and well stocked with everything you need...from the kitchen to the beach chairs. We visit the Cape every year for spring break and plan to continue the tradition. The beach is the most beautiful in the world, is dog friendly, and you can build a fire at night to watch those amazing sunsets.

New favorite spots...very relaxing    Aug 04, 2018

I just wanted to let you know we really enjoyed our stay. We had a blast on the beach and the beach house was great. It was so nice being able to walk out on the beach from the house. We will definitely be back again. Maybe we’ll try a different unit each time. The area is definitely one of our new favorite spots. It was very relaxing.  

We had a great time and we’ll be back. It’s such a relaxing area! 
Thank you so much for all your help!

Couldn't have been better!    Jul 28, 2018

Hi, Wendy.  You are psychic, I was just getting ready to e-mail you.  We had a great time, thank you.  The skies cleared for Friday - just in time for the photographer.  The place was great and couldn't have been in a better location.  Access to the beach and pool was a breeze, and everything was so thoughtfully set up for easy logistics.

New Vacation Destination!    Jul 21, 2018

We loved Paradise & had a wonderful time!    Jun 16, 2018

We absolutely LOVED “Paradise”!  

It was a wonderfully decorated condo.  The decks off each of the rooms were very nice.

The beds were comfortable! You had all kinds of extras like baskets, blankets, pillows, etc. even pet extras that made the experience delightful. The kitchen had very good storage and had all the amenities needed for the trip.  

We all enjoyed and had a wonderful time. 

Thank you,
The Martins

Ideal for a family vacation!    Jun 09, 2018

Once again we had a wonderful time at Cape San Blas!  Paradise is ideal for a family vacation.  This is our fourth year running and it’s still the best place we’ve found to get away from it all to just relax and enjoy the beach.  Our daughters and their families were just as excited as we were.  Can’t wait to go back next summer!!!

We loved that the Cape was not as crowded as what we were used to with Destin    Nov 18, 2017

The trip was great and the location was perfect. The kids had a blast and we loved that the Cape was not as crowded as what we were used to with Destin.

We definitely plan to come back next year.

The condo, surrounding area & our vacation/family reunion was PERFECT!    Nov 04, 2017

We Minnesotans will return to Cape Escape.  Along with cousins from around the world, we discovered the relaxation, beauty, friendliness, and adventures of Cape San Blas.  

Wendy helped us find the perfect condo. Our instructions, directions, condo supplies, and information were precise and perfect for the week we "lived" in the area.  
The condo and surrounding area is wonderfully maintained. 

The location can't be any better.  Right out the door is beach as far as you can see or walk.  We had great local food; Coneheads, Paul Gant's BBQ.  The local Trading Post is fabulously stocked, and warmly staffed; check with them for local recommendations; they know what's going on.  

We rented a pontoon from SureThang and puttered around the Bay.  Highly recommended.  St Joseph State Park is right around the corner.  Fabulous nature walking.  This cCpe is "a great escape".

1st Trip to Cape San Blas - Won't be our last to the Cape and we LOVE Paradise    Oct 07, 2017

"Paradise" is appropriate!  First time to the Cape, not the last.  My early birthday gift was better than I could have imagined.  Wendy is amazingly helpful.  We enjoyed the use of the chairs and the toys and proximity to the beach was UNREAL!

The 4 of us enjoyed the sunsets and our dogs had a blast.   We now have a new favorite beach and plan to try and secure this rental again!

You provide excellent customer service. Thank you and we plan on returning soon.    Jul 01, 2017

As always, we had a great time.  Beach and home were wonderful – and family had a great time.  We did lots of ocean kayaking and fishing with the kids.   The worst part was having to pack up and leave.   Your prompt attention to a few of our questions was very much appreciated.  You provide excellent customer service.  Thank you and we plan on returning soon.

3rd Visit and We have enjoyed EVERY Visit. Looking forward to the next one!    Dec 15, 2016

Thank you for the prompt return of our deposit. My husband and I had a wonderful time in Cape San Blas over the holidays. The Paradise condo was perfect for us. The views of the Gulf from the 3 balconies are spectacular & the easy access to the beach can’t be beat! I also appreciate the detailed communication you offer regarding the details of the condo and the area. The only thing I would suggest is to let renters know there are 2 things not in stock at the condo that they need to bring: bath soap/wash & a hairdryer. Everything else & more is furnished.

This is our 3rd time staying at Barrier Dunes & we have enjoyed every visit. Looking forward to the next one!


What more could you ask for?    Nov 01, 2016

We would like to thank the owners of “Paradise” for sharing their home with us. We found the home well taken care of and beautifully decorated.
When I arrived and opened the curtains from the balcony I was presented with the most beautiful beach with dolphins playing in the ocean. We feel a sleep every night to the sound of the ocean.

What else can you ask for?


We loved the dog friendly beach!    Oct 09, 2016

Thanks so much for answering all my question before we left and sending directions.  You were a big help.  I took your advice and used Two-bit stables for horse back riding. We had a blast. Cape San Blas is awesome and is Barrier Dunes!  All my family said they want to move there.  The townhouse at Barrier Dunes is very comfortable and clean.  Service is great, super place to stay! The balconies are great and give everyone their own little haven to sit and enjoy the views. The beach is beautiful and the sunsets are gorgeous!  The stocked ponds with fountains and the grounds at Barrier Dunes are so well kept.
We loved the dog-friendly beach.  Our puppy (Lucy) stole the show on the beach and the big dogs were so nice to her.  Lucy was so well behaved on the trip…now that we are home she is rowdy!
Horseback riding (Two Bit Stables) was fabulous, the kids and adults loved it.  The guide was very friendly and helpful. 
Another highlight for my family was being able to build a fire on the beach.  The kids’ roasted marsh mellows one night and made s’mores another.  I heard a few say the fire on the beach was the best moment!
A few in my group had fun renting bikes and riding around town. 
Our cell service was good on the cape, and the kids loved the wifi and being able to stay in touch with their friends.
This vacation is now everyone’s favorite of all time!  Thank you for having us, we enjoyed Cape San Blas!


Every feature of the home exceeded our expectations    Oct 01, 2016

What a beautiful weekend!  Every feature of the home exceeded our expectations and although I realize there was no way for the owners to coordinate this detail- the weather couldn’t have been more perfect the entire time we were there!   We are long-time visitors to Cape San Blas and it truly has some of the most gorgeous sunsets I’ve ever seen so we were thrilled to be able to see them right from the deck of this house!   Thanks for a weekend my family and I will remember for years to come!
