Barrier Dunes 188 - Turtle Tracks is just 90 steps off your back deck on a boardwalk stroll to 1 of the prettiest beaches in the world! 

Enjoy great views from either side of the home! 

You will find it well-stocked and 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!  

You'll love the white quartz sand that doesn't burn your feet, the sand dunes that give the setting character, & the gentle gulf waves. The fishing is great, the crabbing fun & the activities abound from boating, hiking, beach bonfires, spectacular sunsets (our beaches faces west), horseback riding on the beach and tennis to impromptu socials.

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 guestbook on our website.

Barrier Dunes, our gated community, has 2 pools (1 is beachfront & 1 heated), lighted tennis courts, 3 fresh water fishing ponds, playground 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 & other diversions are only minutes away, yet many of our guests never leave Barrier Dunes. 

Play tennis, swim in the pools, sunbath on the beach while watching the ever-changing scenes, fish, crab, stir up a card game or read till your hearts 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 and provide as many of these extras a possible so you are focused on your vacation, family and fun and not on the basics! We encourage you to catch your own dinner of scallops, crabs or fish and bring along some marshmallows and enjoy s'mores around the beach bonfire or roast hot dogs for dinner! 

Our goal is to make your stay as relaxing as it can be from beginning to end!. To make room for the pooch in your car, we provide every basic essential we can think of (see details on my personal website www.TheCapeEscapecom AMENITIES page), but 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 beachgoer...No need to pack the pack and play or high chair! Enjoy a grill on the gulf view deck.   We also provide a guest information book with area information, things to do, restaurants and more!

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! 

Don't wait to reserve: we offer 5 gulf view vacation rentals and 7 other Barrier Dunes rentals, all in Barrier Dunes on Cape San Blas!  

See for information about all of my Cape San Blas rentals in Barrier Dunes, rates, specials and more!

Great amenities! Very close to beach & St. Joseph Peninsula State Park!    Jul 21, 2019

Turtle Tracks is a great property that is located very close to the beach and the state park. There are plenty of beach chairs and other supplies to make your trip convenient! Wendy did a great job communicating with us!

1st Time at Cape San Blas! Perfect!    Jul 06, 2019

My husband, daughter, and I just spent a week at Turtle Tracks. This was our first time going to the Cape. Wendy was incredible to work with and the communication was awesome! The home was beyond perfect, pristine, and comfortable. It had everything we needed and more!!! For those of you who think the Cape isn't ready for visitors, you are so wrong! The beach is perfect and the gulf is just beautiful. This was also the first time our "baby" (aka French Bulldog) went to the beach. It was challenging to find a pet-friendly home close to the beach and I am so thankful I found Cape Escape! This is definitely our new "home away from home" and can't wait to book next years vacation! Thank you Wendy for thinking of everything and for allowing us to stay in the home. We will treasure the memories we made at the Cape.

A perfect week on the Cape    Jun 29, 2019

Turtle Tracks is a little slice of heaven on Cape San Blas! The home is immaculate and has everything you need and more. It offers a nice view of the gulf which is just a few steps away. The best part was being able to bring our dog who got acclimated to her surroundings right away. The communication with Wendy was amazing as she responded immediately to all my questions and was willing to go above and beyond to make our stay in the home wonderful. The grounds are well-kept and the beach and gulf are just beautiful! This is our new "happy place" and we can't wait to go back again and again.

Michael Didn't take the Cape's Beauty    Jun 22, 2019

CSB is beautiful! Despite the destruction from Michael, it is still beautiful. If you are wondering should you come to CSB right now, I say yes! I am so glad that we did. We were not hindered and were able to do everything that we planned to do on a beach vacation. We had a great time staying in Wendy's unit. The unit is everything described and then some. Check-in is easy, communication is superb, and her cleaning staff is a top notch team.

Amazing! Everything & Turtle Tracks & Cape San Blas was PERFECT!    Sep 23, 2018

If you will have, us we will be back!!!

Loved it! Our new beach getaway spot!    Aug 05, 2018

My family loved the place and we had a great time! The Cape is our new getaway spot so we’ll be back soon.

Nothing Extra was needed -- everything was perfect in Turtle Tracks. We'll be back!    Jun 26, 2018

I met a friend at Barrier Dunes, Turtle Tracks for a mini vacation and I cannot say how pleased we both were with what was offered to us.  

I am used to packing in a crate all needed supplies, Dish soap, Laundry soap, salt and pepper, and all other needed items to make a vacation condo home friendly.  With Turtle Track nothing extra was needed, I did not even take my crate out of the trunk.  I have been coming to Cape San Blas for 25 years and Wendy at Cape Escape has been the easiest agent to deal with and her condos are perfect for a mini or longer vacation.

The beach is perfect and of course, if you travel to Saint Joe’s State park the bay is just as enjoyable.  Thank you Cape Escape my friend, and family will be coming back in years to come!

Awesome vacation! Wendy was a Joy to deal with!    Jun 11, 2018

We did have an awesome trip and you were a joy to deal with.. Thanks for everything and we will definitely be in touch.

Great time! We'll be back soon!    Apr 30, 2018

Wendy, We had a great visit to Barrier Dunes and Turtle Tracks.  Thanks for setting it up.  We will be back soon.


Great Amenities.    Sep 22, 2017

Thank you for a great experience.  We really enjoyed our stay there.  I really like how you have everything, or almost everything, to make a stay easy and welcoming.  All the beach toys, towels, soap (laundry and dish soap), it was nice not having to bring everything.  

Anyway, thanks again.  This is one of the few places I am really considering coming back to.


The condo was perfect and the beach was beautiful and relaxing.    Oct 31, 2016

We had a GREAT time and didn’t want to come back home.   The condo was perfect and the beach was beautiful and relaxing.  We met a man who taught us about salt water fishing and even gave us a rod and reel.  We had good seafood at the Indian Pass Raw Bar and then again at Papa Joe’s Oyster Bar in Apalachicola.
We can’t wait to come back again!   Thank you!

The condo was great!    Sep 01, 2016

Happy Labor Day! We have returned home from Cape San Blas & are all extremely sad our mini vacation is over.  We LOVED it!  The condo was great & had all the amenities we needed.  Thank you so much for everything!  We will  definitely be back again soon.  I’ve already recommended my Mom & sister call you for their next beach trip!  I couldn’t say enough great things about the location & the complex.


We LOVED it    Jul 10, 2016

We absolutely loved it. Wendy! You will be hearing from us again but for a longer stay. Thank you for all the great info and communicating so well.   It meant a lot to us.
