About the owner: We fell in love with Cape San Blas our very first visit! We didn't even know it was a pet-friendly beach at the time and we've always had dogs and been dog lovers!
At the end of about 2 years we ended up owning 3 properties, all in Barrier Dunes, and were discovering more we loved about the Cape every trip! Our kids starting going to Cape San Blas when there were 4 and 6 and both are now in college. I look forward to enjoying the Cape with their families when the time comes!
When I started renting, I was a mom of young kids and realized it was a LOT of work to get ready for vacation, so I try to make it as easy as possible for folks renting with Cape Escape Vacation Rentals. I provide everything from beach chairs down to the little things you want when you're on vacation, but many forget...spice, trash bags, laundry detergent and LOTS in between. I also try to communicate as many details as possible before your vacation and provide a very complete guest information book about the area once you arrive so you don't have to do the research!
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!

Guestbook comments from the owner:
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.
We had a lovely time. The home was wonderful and so comfortable. Thanks for accepting the last minute request! We will be back.
We really did enjoy CSB. We are already saying that we’re coming back next summer. Our condo was great and we especially appreciated how stocked it was. The extras like the beach cart for example were so helpful. The walkways and roads were easy to travel and made the beach very accessible.
My family met some interesting people and enjoyed our time in Barrier Dunes. There is a very family friendly atmosphere. What we discovered that was the most fun on the beach was that many gathered at dusk and spent the evening hanging out with bonfires and the sunset.
We did our grocery shopping in Port St. Joe and made use of the grill on our deck. We tried several good restaurants and eateries on the Cape including Skullys and The Sand Bucket. In Port St. Joe, we enjoyed Peppers for Mexican food and The Sunset Grill for great seafood and steaks.
Thank you, Wendy for providing the amazing experience in CSB. Your registration process went very smoothly and you provided every bit of information that we needed to have a successful trip. We will be back!
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!!
We had such a wonderful time and wished we could have stayed longer. We hope to return to Cape San Blas soon. When we do…we’d love to stay at Barrier Dunes!
I just loved the decorating at the condo (Barrier Dunes 67 – Cape Escape I). We all agreed that it looked so natural and cheerful. We especially like the casual blue denim fabric on the couches and the beaches bedspreads. The kitchen had all the equipment we needed and the grill started right up so we felt at home pretty quickly. Lucy, our lab, loved the ocean and was exhausted, so was easy to manage in the new environment.
We rented bikes from Scallop Cove and enjoyed biking in the state park and on the bike path towards Port St. Joe. My husband got hooked on the donut stand (this is at the Trading Post).
Leslie is an artist and May 1 – 10 there was a county wide Plein Air art event going on, so we really enjoyed going to the exhibits and meeting artist outdoors painting in Apalachicola and seeing the web room at WindMark beach. We also enjoyed the year-round art galleries in Apalachicola, especially the Bowery. Leslie liked Tamara’s Cafe in Apalach so we ate there twice.
The vacation was really about the beach, which was lovely. Evan loved playing Frisbee on the sandbar, 50 feet out. We saw dolphins, a manta ray and pelican. All Lucy, our lab cared about was fetching balls out of the ocean. She was obsessed. The whole dog culture at Barrier Dunes was fun.
Beautiful vacation. Lovely beach, pools and tennis courts. Lovely grounds and friendly people!
Peaceful Relaxing stay
This is our third visit to the Cape and while the weather was the least favorable, we still had a great time. I have always stayed at Cape Escape I and Wendy is a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend her and the multiple units she has in Barrier Dunes. We always look forward to getting back to Cape San Blas. So much progress on recovery from Michael.

I'm so glad you enjoyed Cape Escape I and had a wonderful vacation! I hope you and your family will come back and make many more memories! Thank you for taking the time to review our home & your stay!Wendy Jackson
Cape San Blas is Amazing!!!! Our stay was fantastic compliments of our condo through Cape Escape Vacation Rentals. The Cape was amazing and it was so great to see how much business was alive and thriving so soon after Hurricane Michael. The beaches were beautiful, fishing was bountiful and our dog was able to vacation with us!!!! We will definitely be back. After telling our family about how amazing it was they stopped on the cape twice during their stay in a nearby town. See you again soon Cape San Blas

A unique and wonderful place to stay and visit
Cape San Blas and the St Joseph Penninsula are amazing places to visit. We were interested in a place that had easy access to a beach and pool, dogs were welcomed, and was, above all, relaxing and fun! The Cape Escape was everything we wanted and more for our vacation. We will have to return to fully explore everything the area has to offer. I highly recommend staying there.

Beautiful condo/Awesome beach!
My husband and I stayed at Cape Escape 1 at Barrier Dunes. This condo had everything we could possibly need for our stay, from kitchen items right down to the beach cart! It was big enough to carry our chairs and all of our beach gear with ease. We were a bit hesitant to return to Cape San Blas so soon after hurricane Michael, but the beaches and sunsets were still just as beautiful! We additionally got to witness a turtle laying her eggs on the beach...on Mother’s Day! Wendy from Cape Escape Vacation Rentals called us to let us know as it was nesting season. She remained very helpful during our stay, and promptly answered any questions we had. We were also lucky enough to see a bald Eagle on one of our day trips! We cannot wait to go back, and will bring our pups next time! The unit even had dog towels, and other pet items on hand. Although the Cape is still recovering in some ways from hurricane Michael it’s charm and beauty still remains. The resilience and spirit of its residents was evident in everyone we met.
