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:
Walking on Sunshine” is a great place to spend time with family and pets. We enjoyed having so many amenities and the condo was decorated very nicely with lots of extras. We especially enjoyed our time on the deck. Sunsets were incredible and the beach is right there. Barrier Dunes is a great place for pets. We met so many nice people and our dog Freddie loved meeting all the other dogs when on his walks. We highly recommend “Walking on Sunshine” for everyone, especially with the great service you will receive from Wendy. She’s the best!
We so enjoyed our stay away from home. The place was immaculate, had all the necessary staples and in general all the accommodations were extremely comfortable. It was our home away from home! The beach front property will remain in our minds forever!! We certainly will make arrangements to come back in the future.
Our trip was perfection for our family reunion. Wendy’s instructions were thorough and easy to navigate. She was very responsive to any questions we had. The units we rented were clean and well stocked. The beach is as beautiful as always. I would heartily recommend enjoying your vacation at Cape San Blas and using Wendy and her rental company. A+!
We had a wonderful time. My grandkids loved the loft. They had their own play area. Everything was perfect. Loved the layout of the condo.
I loved the privacy of the bedrooms. I think it is the perfect layout for the 2 families. It was my daugher and son-in-law and 2 grandchildren We will definitely be back next year. I loved the beach & it was a great trip. The place was perfect.
Thanks for sharing your wonderful home.
always the best vacation
Just returned from another great week at the cape. We try to fit in at least 1 trip a year and luckily were here in April and again November. The area is recovering nicely lots of improvements and loads of things to do. We always enjoy long walks on the beach, trips to Apalachicola for Oyster City Brews and tasty treats at dog friendly restaurants. Walking on Sunshine is always a comfortable, quiet, relaxing oasis. After 1 week of watching dolphins from the porch and strolling with the dogs down the beach I am looking ahead to our next trip.

Holly: It was great having you back again. The views from Walking on Sunshine are hard to beat. I love watching the dolphins too!I'm glad you had a wonderful Cape Escape. I will look forward to hearing from you again when you and the doodles are ready to come back.Wendy Jackson
The Cape is Awesome!

Even a hurricane can't keep them down!
Just had our 4th annual stay in this condo. Even though the devastation at CSB and PSJ is horrible and everywhere, Barrier Dunes was overall in great shape with just a couple condos out of commission. The beach and dunes are restored and the pools are open! The unit itself is in excellent condition with plenty of amenities included. There is a reason why we book there every year!
