It is bright and cheerful with a king bedroom, a queen bedroom and 2 full baths.  It has tile on the main and carpet in both bedrooms.  Enjoy smart TVs in the living room and both bedrooms.  Full kitchen with a dining table that seats 6.  It is an end unit with a window seat for lots of extra light. 

There is a large back deck with 2 seating areas and a gas grill to cook your catch of the day.  Both bedrooms also have decks with the king bedroom deck having high boy chairs overlooking the pond & gulf views (and FABULOUS sunsets). There is also a full laundry room complete with detergent that we provide.

Outside you will find an enclosed shower and a hose for washing those sandy toes (and paws).  There is also a beach closet containing beach chairs, beach cart, buckets, shovels, a cooler, boogie board, crab net & crab bucket.  Saves a lot of room in your car (and $$).

Bring your dog(s)& enjoy the quiet, unspoiled, dog-friendly beaches of Gulf County. Nestled up to the state park for easy bay access, we are surrounded by water. 

It is the perfect place for 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, sunbathe on the beach while watching the ever-changing scenes, explore St. Joe Bay by kayak, pontoon boat or snorkel, fish, crab, stir up a card game or read till your heart's content.

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 face west), horseback riding on the beach, and tennis to impromptu socials.

All of life becomes casual and 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.

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 hotdogs for dinner!

Our goal is to make your vacation as good as it gets. To make room for the pooch in your car, we provide every basic essential we can think of (see details on site), but we don't stop there. Imagine a kitchen that is stocked with w/spices, crockpot, & crab pot.

About the owner: View all of my listings at Cape Escape Vacation Rentals.
Some of our favorite things to do are: Bonfires at the beach after sunset, scalloping in the bay, kayaking, Indian Pass Raw Bar to enjoy oysters, crab legs & steam shrimp as well as great local music and company, a day poking around the stores (and eating) in Apalachicola many things!

I look forward to having you enjoy a Cape Escape soon!

Why this property? This is a beautiful, well-maintained, updated property. Great view overlooking the lake and just a short stroll from the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner:

We just returned home from our week long visit at the Cape. This was our very first trip to the area. We stayed in Barrier Dunes at Happy Hour. Absolutely loved it! Wendy is fantastic to work with. Happy Hour was one of the cleanest townhomes I had stayed in and was stocked with every necessity you could imagine. This made it so nice to have everything already there. Very short walk to the beach as well. There was a “beach” closet that included beach chairs, sand toys, beach cart, boogie boards, and all sorts of other things. Even our precious fur-baby enjoyed her first vacation. We had a wonderful week and look forward to visiting again

Awesome weekend

Cape happy hour was great. Very clean and welcoming. It had everything we needed for a relaxing weekend. The walk to the beach was short. We actually enjoyed the walk each day. We met and talked with some great people and dogs along the way. Devi was great to work with.

Great Place!

We were very pleasantly surprised at how nice the decor was and how clean the unit was. The little extras provided - laundry soap, dishwasher detergent, lots of spices, dog sheets and towels, etc. - were very much appreciated. The short walk on the path to the pool and beach was great. This unit if a great value for the money.!

Perfectly peaceful

Working with Devi was a pleasure and a breeze! We booked last minute while traveling and she helped us find the perfect spot for exactly what we were looking for. The home was stocked with everything we needed and more. We felt at home and very comfortable in this adorable place. Looking forward to working with Devi and returning to our new hidden treasure in the future!!

Excellent stay at Happy Hour

We loved our stay at Happy Hour. Wendy is fantastic to work with. This townhome had so many extra things to offer. It was stocked with everything you need. There was even a beach closet that had a beach umbrella, beach cart, chairs, sand toys as well as many other things. This was our first trip to the area and we will definitely return.
