About Mike Vaughan

Lynn retired after 30 years as a math teacher. Mike retired after 40 years as a small business owner. We live in Georgia. After out first visit to the 'Cape' we purchased our townhome new. We have been the only owners for 16 years.

Mike Vaughan purchased this townhome in 2001

Why Mike Vaughan chose Florida Main North West

Cape San Blas is unique in that it is one of the last uncrowded beaches on the Florida coast. The beautiful white sand beaches,sunsets that are breathtaking excellent fishing both inshore and offshore and the laid back atmosphere are just a few of the reasons we bought here.

What makes this townhome unique

Barrier Dunes offers a secure gated community to enjoy. With two pools, tennis courts,and a secluded sugar white beach it offers the best of everything in the Cape.

Wonderful. clean and well maintained town home with plenty of privacy.

  • 5 of 5

Mike, we had a wonderful stay at your town home last week. The weather did not want to cooperate, but that is something that neither you nor I can control. Overall the days we had with sunshine were very enjoyable. The seafood places in Port St Joe and Mexico Beach were excellent. We enjoyed touring Port St Joe and Apalachicola which are close by. The tennis courts are in excellent condition, and both pools are clean and well maintained. We look forward to staying here in the future. Thanks, Mike.

We really enjoyed our stay! The place is beautiful and the beach is gorgeous! The rooms are spacious but the only negative is no door to the master bedroom and internet service was not really good in Cape San Blas. We would come back again!

Owner's Response: Amy, Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your vacation at the Cape.The layout is the same with all town homes at Barrier Dunes. The long stairway up to the master suite and the floor plan in the bedroom helps with privacy. The WiFi is a trade off for the secluded beauty of the Cape. Thanks again. We look forward to your next visit,Mike

We loved everything about the property. The weather was excellent, the condo was perfect for our family and we got to spend time with my sister's family that was staying in Ovation. Thanks so much for sharing with us!

Fully loaded but lacking

  • 3 of 5

We really liked the condo. It has everything that you could possibly need. There were definitely some things that we were disappointed in. 1. The ad says that the pools are heated. They most definitely are not. 2. The ad says that the lakes are stocked. While checking in, I asked about the fishing and was advised that we were not allowed to fish and that the owners know this. 3. We usually explore the area every day except one. The day we stayed at the resort, a construction crew came through around 10am and got on the roof making repairs. We had no warning prior to the banging. If we had known, we would have made plans to be away from the resort that day. 4. There was a placard on the counter top that there are free activities by texting a code. When I sent my text message and made a selection, I was advised that this owner doesnt participate. When I inquired to the property management company, Kim told me that they cant possibly keep up with who participates and who doesnt and make sure those signs come out. Really? Im in property management and that is called attention to detail.

Because our vacations are comprised of swimming and fishing, and we chose this place based on those things, we were disappointed that this location didn't meet our expectations as much as the condo did.

Owner's Response: Sherri, I am sorry you had issues at Barrier Dunes. I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience. Please let me address each issue. 1. The interior pool is heated as advertised. 2. Guests are allowed to fish in the ponds. They are full of fish. 3. I am sorry for the construction crew. They are instructed not to perform maintenance when there are guests present. I have spoken with my property manager to make sure this will not happen again. 4. The "free" services add to the cost of the stay and are built in to the price. Quite frankly they are not very good so we do not use them. The placard was put there by our management company by mistake. Again, thank you for your review. We strive to make sure our guests are happy. Thanks,Mike
