Barrier Dunes townhome description
Our Beach was Voted #1 in the USA by Dr. Beach and you'll see why when you visit our family condo Flamingo Retreat at Barrier Dunes on Cape San Blas.
The beach-front swimming pool is approximately 100 steps from the back deck, past the fishing pond. Walk over the dunes and you are on the beach! Our townhome has over 1800 sq ft with fully furnished kitchen/dining rm for 8/and 2 new sofas (one sleeper) and new 42' TV with cable. Large covered deck with outside dining furniture plus a sun lounger and gas grill. Outside shower/ PET FRIENDLY TOO. Free long-distance and free WiFi!!!!
Our vacation townhome is a highly livable space. Each of the 3 bedrooms has a full bathroom/TV with cable/DVD/and private deck. Newly redecorated with bedspreads/linens/and bed pillows.
Our uncrowded white-sand beaches are great for walking or shelling. The sunsets are beautiful and you will find yourselves drawn to the gentle waves for both sun and fun. There are lighted tennis courts approximately 70 steps from the front door with a 2nd heated swimming pool nearby.
Kayaking, fishing, boating, horseback riding, St. Joe State Park, Cape San Blas Lighthouse all on Cape San Blas. Coneheads a local favorite restaurant is across from Barrier Dunes entrance, and specializes in grilled burgers (the best!), fresh fish and shrimp, grilled or fried, and the best ice cream around. They also have a good wine selection, outside dining, and entertainment on weekends. You can sit outside and enjoy the breeze, the view, and relax and enjoy.
St Joe Buffer Preserve, St Vincent Island and St Joe State Park are great for birding, hiking, or just enjoying the beautiful natural location. Eagles soar at the Buffer Preserve.
The Sunsets are fabulous - visit the beach at sunset to watch nature's beauty at it's best.
Fresh seafood abounds in the many local restaurants, groceries, and Fish Markets. Watch the shrimp boats at night on the skyline and eat fresh shrimp for dinner on the grill!!
If you are interested in a night in town, The Thirsty Goat has music and drink specials and several restaurants have Happy Hour to go along with steamed oysters, and other specials.
The gentle breezes make for lovely walks and great kite flying. The sky at night is like a fireworks display -- Just think of what you might do if you visited paradise!
Our Beach is #1 Pet Friendly, so save those kennel fees and bring your doggie with you. There are multiple waste stations, and your pet can have a ball chasing the waves at sunset too!
Enjoy a bonfire at night on the beach, look at the spectacular star-filled night sky, or visit the Cape San Blas Lighthouse and St Joe State Park for a unique Old Florida non-crowded vacation.
Panama City is only 45 minutes away for a day of shopping, movies, minigolf, or other family activities. Apalachicola is 30 minutes away with live theater, unique restaurants and boutiques, antique stores and museums. Another fun get away day!

Can't express enough how great last week was.Guest comment entered by owner
Can't express enough how great last week was.
"Can't express enough how great last week was...We have been coming to Barrier Dunes now for 14 years in a row...I must say that of all the units we have stayed in, yours is at the top of the list. We are used to having to bring a lot of things like pans and beach stuff...Your unit by far had more kitchen accessories than we have ever seen...It is just obvious that you have put more thought and care into your unit than others have...We really enjoyed our stay and hope to stay again soon."

About the owner: Hi Vacationers! We are Sandy and Dave from Indiana and we rent and take care of our vacation property, Flamingo Retreat, ourselves. We take alot of pride in our vacation home and want to share it with you and your family. We recently retired and have spent more time at Flamingo Retreat, redecorating, redoing and relaxing! Dave just added 3 new lighted ceiling fans, and we just put in a new kitchen floor and countertops. We want to make Flamingo Retreat the best place for you to have a great vacation with your family. Cape San Blas is truly a magical place to relax, renew and create memories with your family. We have made Flamingo Retreat as friendly and homey as you can find anywhere, with lots and lots of extras! We love it here and think you and your family will too! Come to Paradise, Flamingo Retreat. Here we are holding our newborn grandson Luca, who was born Sept 1, 2010 in Boston. We are in love and think Luca is the best present ever! Sandy and Dave
Why the Owner Chose Barrier Dunes:
My sister Joannie and her husband Eddie found Cape San Blas over 20 years ago on their honeymoon. They said if there ever was a place to have a vacation home, Cape San Blas would be it. In 2000 several family members decided to go together to invest in a home to share with each other and invest, and create a special place for others. We found that at Barrier Dunes. It is a friendly, secure, gated community with the #1 Beach in the USA as noted by Florida's Dr. Beach. St Joe State Park, St Vincent Island, St. Joe Buffer Preserve (eagles soar), fresh, fresh seafood, and all the things you can image to do on vacation are right here! Don't fight the crowds, come to a little bit of Paradise at Flamingo Retreat at Cape San Blas!!
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
We've made our vacation home very family friendly. It is over 1800 sq ft with 4 outside decks, large kitchen, 2 new sofas in dining rm, and huge master suite with a king size bed, dual sinks, separate garden tub and walk in 6 ft shower. Lots of places to relax, with TV/DVD/Cable in each bedroom and living rm. Free WiFi and Free Long-Distance. We have lots of movies, books, board games, and beach toys for your family to enjoy, in addition to beach chairs/umbrellas/and a beach buggy to take all our items to the beach -- which is only about 120 steps from the toownhome. You 'll never have to worry about finding a place to put your towel or blanket on our beach -- with 14 miles of white sandy beach (the last 7 at St Joe State Park) Cape San Blas is Old Florida at it's best -- we call it the Forgotten Coast - why -- because there are no hotels, and no buildings over 3 stories. We believe in preserving the beauty of the beach, nature and wildlife. If you like fresh seafood, this is the place. You can watch the fishing boats unload at St Joe Marina and purchase fresh shrimp at St Patrick's seafood market or the local Piggly Wiggly grocery. There are also many locally owned restaurants who pride themselves in using the freshest local seafood available. Other eateries include Chinese, Mexican and Italian. Subway, McDonald's and Hungry Howie's too. Port St Joe is a colorful Southern town where the locals have a lot of pride in their beaches and their town. There's usually an Art, Music, Seafood, First Friday, Holiday, etc., Festival going on -- the town supports the arts and the artists! The beautiful, new, state-of-the-art Sacred Heart Hospital just opened in March 2010 in Port St Joe. You will find yourself and your family relaxed and reconnected once you've visited our vacation home, Flamingo Retreat. Come stay with us!!! You'll all be happy you did.
