Property description

Dolphins Dance is a lovely, fully equipped, gulf view, dog friendly townhouse in Barrier Dunes, which is located right next to a state park on Cape San Blas.
The beach is pristine, fine white sand. You can walk for miles. The beach is also super dog friendly and the water near Dolphins Dance is shallow close to shore, making it an excellent place for small children and dogs to play in the surf. I have also seen many teenagers enjoying skim boarding in the shallow water close to shore.

Barrier Dunes itself is ideally situated on the Cape, right next to the entrance to St. Joe's Peninsula State Park with its many hiking, biking, wildlife viewing and beach exploring opportunities. An excellent location also to take a canoe or kayak and explore the wildlife in the back bay which is between the cape and the mainland. This is a great place to see wildlife! There is also a boat launch, so whether you bring your own boat, and yes, there is parking available for a boat at Dolphins Dance, or whether you rent a boat, you can do so easily and conveniently.

Dolphins Dance is close to two small picturesque and interesting small towns, Apalachicola to the east and Port St. Joe to the north as you approach the mainland. You will find restaurants, shops, and sporting activities galore close by. Go horseback riding right on the Cape. Rent a power boat or go deep sea fishing. It's all nearby. There is also an excellent golf course 15 minutes away.

Dolphins Dance is clean, super comfy and absolutely fully equipped.
