"After researching literally months trying to match our hopes of a pristine quiet beach, a safe community, a place where dogs are welcome (yet the owners care about clean healthy surroundings) and a nice place to stay that was not too crowded....... we found Barrier Dunes. We found "The cape" to be the get-a-way spot we were after. There were few kids or students this time of year and no commotion going on to take attention away from the sounds of the ocean. We were very pleased at how clean everyone kept the community, the beach itself and the general area along the pathways that are in many places littered with cigarette butts and scraps of discarded debris. Our beach-front condo (SeaScape) was great for us, being that this was our first shot at snow-birding, we had to be right on the beach, and boy were we ever. 30 steps from the nicest, cleanest sand that we could have ever imagined. We were very pleased to find a lot of folks who were from the Midwest staying
in this area too. People we could carry on conversations about being glad to be out of the cold for a while and sharing ideas about great places to eat and things to do. The condo itself was as clean as we had hoped and the
morning coffee from our choice of balconies was one of the reasons we came down from Wisconsin in the first place. We wanted to take those moments home with us to remember. We have made plans already to come back to Barrier Dunes next winter. We think we have found a place that fills all the requirements on our list of things we were after. We are also glad to have Wendy to make recommendations and coach us on our first adventure down here to stay for an extended time. We are looking forward to many more trips to come."

"The house was immaculate and came with everything we needed to cook and have a great time. It really felt like a home away from home. My older kids loved staying in the loft area. They really enjoyed the pool (although it is kind of small), it was great for my young kids. They were never out of reach or in over their heads. Everything worked properly. We had absolutely no issues with anything related to this rental. The bar next door was a little noisy and the walk to the beach wasn't ideal with small children only because we had to carry beach toys, etc. however, it was a short two minute drive to the public beach access."

"If you are the owner of large dogs you know how hard it is find a vacation spot where dogs are truly welcome. Steve & Nancy love dogs & so does 99% of the rest of St. Teresa. My two elderly dogs played like pups on the beach & in the ocean. Our daughter (age 7) also had a blast- much more sea life to see than on commercial beaches! The home is cozy & totally adequate for a small family plus two large dogs (100# & 70#) - if you've ever tripped over your dogs in a condo or hotel room you know what I mean!
We will definitely be back next year!
New visitors: Recommend grabbing groceries on the way in (last stop: Walmart in Crawfordville) - also bring bug spray & I recommend water shoes if you are a fraidy cat like me!"
