                      Year Purchased: 2000

                      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 25 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!! St Joe State Park, right next door was voted the #1 State Park in the USA in 2012 -- pristine beach, bay exploring and snorkeling plus pontoon and kayaking too. So much to do or nothing to do. Golfing, horseback riding available too.

                      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. 2013 we got all new large appliances and new tile floor, lg TV, secure WiFi, and premium cable, outside gas grill.
