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. A great covered and screened deck on the main floor provides a dry bug free outdoor space. 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, four adult beach cruiser style bicycles, two tennis rackets, 6 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.'

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.

Wonderful Memories at “Just Coastin” and Cape San Blas!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Debby and Chuck for the opportunity to enjoy the coastal life of Barrier Dunes! From the inquiry to the completion of our stay your communication and assistance was “top notch”! We loved your cozy condo and hope to return in the future!

Some of the special memories:

* the surprise of waking to a beautiful sunrise from the bedroom porch☀️

*the cool tropical breeze because of the cross ventilation

and ceiling fans

*daily long walks and beachcombing on the beautiful white sand beach

*the tranquil water fountain of the pond

*the excitement of the great horned owl hanging out close to the condo

*a fisherman who called for my assistance because he had “something big” on the line and needed me to get help for him....a couple hours later with a crowd who gathered he pulled in a small manta ray. After pictures, he safely released it back to it’s waters.

*most evenings were complete with the most beautiful sunsets😍?

Just Coastin' is awesome!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a great vacation in Cape San Blas! The house is spacious, clean and well-equipped with everything you need. It is convenient to a lot of outdoor activities (fishing, kayaking, biking, hiking, boating, bird watching, dolphin watching, swimming, sunset watching, etc). The beach is pristine and beautiful. The nearby state park has an unspoiled wilderness area at the end of the cape for exploring and hiking. Definitely a 'do again'.

Very clean, well kept and pet friendly.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at this property. Let me say that we are planning to return, which should say it all. Property is kept up very well, well equipped, with beautiful wood floors in main level (living room) and offers many additional perks. Bedrooms both at king size beds with their own bathrooms. The kitchen came well equipped as well. Also came with two kayaks and 4 bikes. The location is off the beach a bit, but sits on a small lake with lots of wildlife to view. Wonderful view off the two decks. We are definitely planning a trip back in the future.

Beautiful area, even during Tropical Storm Cindy!

  • 5 of 5

Chuck was great, we really appreciated the suggestions for dinning, shopping etc. The townhouse is well equipped - everything we needed - which was helpful since we were pretty much housebound for 3 days during the storm. The bedrooms are comfortable and spacious. Loved the out door area, especially the turtle show! Access to the beach, pool and amenities are convenient. Especially pleased we were able to pull our 22ft boat into the drive way and did not have to use the overflow parking. Thanks for having all the little extras available, bikes, kayaks and beach gear - so nice! We loved riding bikes up to Coneheads for their incredible burgers! Cape San Blas and Barrier Dunes is a great area for those of us who are over the PCB craziness - we will be back!
