Property description

A peaceful gated beachfront community awaits! Enjoy morning coffee w/ a serene lakeview and VERY short walk (less than 3 minutes) to one the Gulf of Mexico's finest pristine beaches. Leave your shoes at the beachside pavillion and don't miss the relaxing feel of the fine sand between your toes! Barrier Dunes' beach offers a nice sandbar during low tide, extensive shelling, and access to miles of shoreline for running or strolling. The sunsets are fantastic and you can catch the dolphins patrolling the beach and jumping clear out of the water, leaving you with the question 'Did I just see that?'. Bring along some frozen shrimp for surf fishing and hook ladyfish, pompano, sailcats, whiting, rays, and an occasional king mackerel. Off the beach, enjoy two pools, one of which is oceanfront and the other is heated, two lighted tennis courts, and boat storage and cleaning station.

We have updated with new flooring throughout in Fall 2013 (no more carpet)! Fresh interior paint throughout in 2012 with beach themed colors! New king sized bed in the master bedroom. The guest room contains a queen sized bed and the third bedroom has two single beds and its own private bath. Each bedroom has a private deck. Our unit comfortably sleeps six in beds and has a sleeper sofa for two more in the living room.

Nearby you can access the bay from Saint Joe Penninsula State Park. Less than a five minute drive away, you can launch your boat here or simply walk to the bay for excellent fishing, crabbing, and bird watching. The entrance fee is $6.00 per vehicle or $11.00 if you are launching a boat.

A bike path extends for the length of the peninsula and kayaks can be rented for a day on the bay. Horseback riding is available close by at Salinas Park.

For those who enjoying fishing, you can charter bay fishing guides for redfish, flounder, speckled trout, tarpon, spanish mackerel, and scallops. Off shore fishing is available at the Port Saint Joe marina, as are sunset sailing cruises, which I highly recommend.

Drive a short distance to the world famous Indian Pass Trading Post for raw oysters and stuffed shrimp. Several excellent seafood restaraunts are in the area and you can walk to Cone Heads for grilled grouper or an awesome cheeseburger. Gas is available on the peninsula, as is pizza, ice cream, and other convenience items. A large Piggly Wiggly is located in Port Saint Joe for groceries. If you want to explore the area, Port Saint Joe and Apalachicola offer great restaurants and shopping. Want to prepare your own seafood? Several fresh seafood markets are nearby and we have a gas grill for the perfect shrimp ka-bob or you can use the george foreman grill for your blackened mahi-mahi.

Barrier Dunes is an exceptional vacation spot where you can relax. Have dogs? They are welcome on the beach! We leave our chairs, toys, tent, etc.. on the beach during our entire stay! Our kids enjoy riding their bikes on the paved street and there are streetlights for added security. What you will not find on your vacation here are traffic jams, crowds, and high rise buildings.

Walking distance to Saint Joe Penninsula State Park. Excellent fishing from the shore.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We are Jim and Christy McElroy from Knoxville, TN and we love the beach! Our kids will dig in the sugar white sand for hours while we watch our surf rod for action. Sunshine, salt water, and seafood just seem to be the right ingredients for our family's vacation. We enjoy the abundance of butterflies, fishing in the bay, and the serenity of a sunset on the beach.

Why the Owner Chose Barrier Dunes:
We really like the fact that Barrier Dunes is a gated, beach-front community where everyone seems friendly! Where else can you leave your stuff on the beach for 4-5 days? As if the sugary white sand and knee deep sand bar weren't enough, Saint Joe state park offers 2500 acres, miles of shoreline, and access to Saint Joe bay, a splendid habitat for marine life. Everyone we talk to loves Cape San Blas and returns year after year, and we know why.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
Our vacation home provides cable TV, w/ HBO, High Speed internet access w/ wifi, free long distance, as well as a Verizon network extender for maximum cell phone coverage for Verizon subscribers (A must if you need your cell phone while on vacation). We are located very close to the solar heated pool and also a small playground for the children. Fish in a well stocked lake right from our backyard or just relax on the deck on Adirondack style furniture crafted by a local woodsmen from gorgeous Florida Cypress. For convenience, we have an outdoor shower w/ hot and cold to rinse off after returning from the beach. We also provide a nice beach cart for toting your toys to the beach.
