Sandy Snodgrass purchased this Condo in 2000
Why Sandy Snodgrass chose Port St. Joe
My sister Joannie and her husband Eddie found Cape San Blas over 25 years ago on their honeymoon. They said if there ever was a place to have a vacation home, Cape San Blas would be it. In 2000 several family members decided to go together to invest in a home to share with each other and invest, and create a special place for others. We found that at Barrier Dunes. It is a friendly, secure, gated community with the #1 Beach in the USA as noted by Florida's Dr. Beach. St Joe State Park, St Vincent Island, St. Joe Buffer Preserve (eagles soar), fresh, fresh seafood, and all the things you can image to do on vacation are right here! Don't fight the crowds, come to a little bit of Paradise at Flamingo Retreat at Cape San Blas!! St Joe State Park, right next door was voted the #1 State Park in the USA in 2012 -- pristine beach, bay exploring and snorkeling plus pontoon and kayaking too. So much to do or nothing to do. Golfing, horseback riding available too.
What makes this Condo unique
We've made our vacation home very family friendly. It is over 1800 sq ft with 4 outside decks, large kitchen, 2 new sofas in dining rm, and huge master suite with a king size bed, dual sinks, separate garden tub and walk in 6 ft shower. Lots of places to relax, with TV/DVD/Cable in each bedroom and living rm. Free WiFi and Free Long-Distance. We have lots of movies, books, board games, and beach toys for your family to enjoy, in addition to beach chairs/umbrellas/and a beach buggy to take all our items to the beach -- which is only about 120 steps from the toownhome. You 'll never have to worry about finding a place to put your towel or blanket on our beach -- with 14 miles of white sandy beach (the last 7 at St Joe State Park) Cape San Blas is Old Florida at it's best -- we call it the Forgotten Coast - why -- because there are no hotels, and no buildings over 3 stories. We believe in preserving the beauty of the beach, nature and wildlife. If you like fresh seafood, this is the place. You can watch the fishing boats unload at St Joe Marina and purchase fresh shrimp at St Patrick's seafood market or the local Piggly Wiggly grocery. There are also many locally owned restaurants who pride themselves in using the freshest local seafood available. Other eateries include Chinese, Mexican and Italian. Subway, McDonald's and Hungry Howie's too. Port St Joe is a colorful Southern town where the locals have a lot of pride in their beaches and their town. There's usually an Art, Music, Seafood, First Friday, Holiday, etc., Festival going on -- the town supports the arts and the artists!

We spent a month celebrating Thanksgiving and our anniversary. The condominium is well equipped, comfortable and well maintained. The owner was immediately responsive to our questions and needs. Pet friendly. A best buy!
We planned a last minute beach trip with our kids and had an incredible weekend. The owners were great to work with and the house was exactly what we wanted. Very very short walk to the beach, no problem for 3 kids under 6.
Perfect Vacation Rental for our Family of 5
Flamingo Retreat was the perfect place for our family vacation! The condo was clean, comfortable, spacious, nicely decorated, and had everything we needed for our week in Cape San Blas. The beach is less than a 3 minute walk out the front door. The outdoor shower came in handy when returning from the beach with our dog. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to make meals. The pet friendly beach is beautiful, quiet, and not crowded. Plenty of space to spread out and relax. It was nice to have our beloved dog with us, and he loved the beach and the other dogs. All of the dog owners we saw were very conscientious about picking up after their dogs. Our three kids have been to all of the big theme parks on vacation, but all 3 said this was our best vacation ever and they want to go back. The condo complex is in a great location as well. We enjoyed horseback riding on the beach, kayaking, padlleboarding, and bike riding, all very close to the condo. We rented a boat at the nearby marina and saw tons of dolphins in the bay, right up close to our boat. At night the sky was beautiful--our city kids had never seen so many stars! There was a meteor shower the week we were there which was amazing. The condo owners are wonderful to work with and very accommodating. We will be back!
Great vacation spot with pets
My husband, son, his girlfriend, her sister, and their parents stayed at this condo for a week over the past two summers. The condo has everything you need for a wonderful vacation. We cook -- either in the kitchen or on the deck - most nights. Could not ask for more responsive owners. We explored to our hearts' content and still have more to see in this vacation spot.
A great condo
So enjoyed our stay at this this well equipped condo! Good Location! Warm feeling! Balcony so nice to relax and chat with neighbors!
Great for families and fishers
My family and I stayed in this condo in June 2014 the place was beautiful and roomy. Everything was ready for us when we arrived. The beach is great in a natural sort of way. We normally go to Clearwater and their beaches are groomed so to me this was even better. We fished on the beach and caught a lot of fish hammerhead sharks were what we caught the most of but we also caught bluefish and barracuda. We will be back to this condo and Cape San Blas.
moonlight Lighthouse walks, daytime Lighthouse tours, sunset boat tours, lots of local festivals, antique and boutique shopping in Port St Joe and Appalachicola, maritime museum and historilcal museums also, ice cream shops, pizza, wonderfully fresh seafood, shrimp, oysters, scallop, fish
