About the property

Townhome, 2 King Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Take the family, including your DOG, to 'Just Coastin' '; a place where emerald green waters, white sand beaches, and gorgeous sunsets await you. A place where you will discover miles and miles of unspoiled beach and bay.

Barrier Dunes is a beautifully landscaped GULF FRONT gated community with two pools, two tennis courts, 3 stocked fishing ponds, and a playground. Enjoy fishing from the shore, scalloping in the bay, and bring home fresh crab for dinner. Our community has dog stations conveniently located throughout, and the Barrier Dunes beaches are especially pet-friendly. We're directly next door to St. Joseph Peninsula State Park so you can walk or bike the 2500+ acres of pristine beauty.

Our beach was ranked #1 in the USA in 2002 by Dr. Beach and #1 by K9 magazine.

'Just Coastin'' is a beautifully furnished lakefront townhome that we take pride in keeping immaculately clean! Both of our king bedrooms offer a private deck with a serene water view and private full bath. The full size washer/dryer is for your convenience, as is the fully stocked kitchen, including coffee maker, blender, toaster, juicer, pots, pans, cooking utensils, the works. We, of course, provide free WiFi and long distance to anywhere in the US and Canada.

No need load the car with beach toys...our townhouse includes two sit-on-top kayaks, two boogie boards, two 26" adult beach cruiser style bicycles, two tennis rackets, 4 chairs, beach umbrella, sand castle toys, cooler and a beach cart to make the short 3 minute walk to the beach even easier. Also included are a couple of small fishing rods and a tackle box for the kids (or adults) to fish in the pond that is right outside the back door.

From previous guests recently wrote, 'Your condo is very comfortable and homey.' Another commented, 'Thanks for everything you have provided to make this a ‘home away from home’ for us. Hope to return next summer!'

'Best place we've stayed in Barrier Dunes!'

'What a warm, magical and tranquil place.'

'It’s so un-crowded and relaxing here.'

'We love everything about the condo.'

'Best beach we have ever walked and we have walked MANY.'

'We went to Apalachicola & ate at Boss Oyster....the atmosphere was quaint but fun & picturesque & oh boy...the oysters were to die for!'

'We’ve been coming to Cape San Blas every year since 1992 and always wanted to bring our furry friends. You made that happen!'

'We got perfect weather for November, sunny and high ‘70’s, cool at night.'

'This was our 3rd visit and enjoyed sea kayaking in the bay, swimming in the gulf, and lounging by the pools.'

What else is there to do? Everything or nothing! For a description of area attractions, places to eat and things to do, log on to w w w dot visitgulf dot com and please call if you have any questions.

Thank you for your interest in Barrier Dunes on beautiful Cape San Blas, the best beach vacation on the planet!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We thoroughly enjoyed the tastefully decorated and immaculately clean home for our nostalgic return to Barrier Dunes after a 15 year absence. We hope to return and will definitely recommend it to our friends.

A perfect way to spend a restful week

  • 5 of 5

"Just Coastin' " was just what we needed - a week off to spend some quality down time. This 'Pet Friendly' townhouse at Barrier Dunes on the quiet St Joseph Spit was well appointed, spotless, and clearly cared for. Communication with the owner was helpful and prompt. The short walk to the beach and pool was always pleasant.

We really enjoyed Sunset Coastal Grill in Port St Joe (twice in one week) for excellent seafood, gumbo, and bread pudding to die for.

Our weather perfect week was short but "Just Coastin' " will stay on our "short list of "Return Trip" destinations.

Great overall experience

  • 5 of 5

Close access to the beach, state park, and fishing in the bay, and also great facilities at Barrier Dunes. My family had a great time, and I'm sure we'll be back to enjoy another week in the future.

Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a weeks stay at Just Coasting. It was PERFECT! We had everything we needed the minute arrived. The condo is tastefully decorated with comfy beds, is very well stocked and in a great location. Just a short walk to the pools and the beach. Chuck provides all you need for your stay, just BYOB (bring your own bathing suit). We rode the bikes to the State Park (and to the Trading Store), kayaked in the bay (and saw a variety of cool sea creatures including starfish, sea urchins and dolphin) and spent hours at the beach each day. The atmosphere on CSB is super chill, the sands are so white and the water is crystal clear! We got up early and drove to the boat launch (across from the big rock wall) to watch the sunrise and it was worth the effort. No need to go anywhere but the beach for amazing sunsets! We plan to go again soon! I highly recommend this unit! We had friends stay a unit over but theirs did not offer 1/2 of what Chuck offered and at the same cost!!! Oh and make sure you go to the little "donut box" at the Trading Post at least donuts I have ever had!
