About the Property

Townhome, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

New Beach Equipment Program!!! When you rent Serenity Now, you will have a menu of beach equipment to choose from, including bikes, kayaks, beach chairs, umbrellas and even Stand Up Paddle boards! The equipment would be waiting for you at the townhouse when you arrive and you would have use of it for the week. I'm super excited about this- there is something for everyone. You can even choose a beach cart to lug your stuff!

Barrier Dunes is a fantastic gated community on the forgotten coast's most pristine beach. 'Serenity Now' is a two minute walk to the beach on the boardwalk and close to Barrier Dune's heated pool. (The main pool is on the beach.) With its fun vibrant colors and gracious touches you will immediately feel at home in this spacious three bedroom townhome. Each room (master- king bed, second bedroom- full, third bedroom- 2 twins) has a full bath and its own private deck with the master bedroom deck looking out to the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. We have an awesome private outdoor shower, roomy enough to rinse off your little guys or just indulge yourself (I just might put one in my backyard at home!). Wifi is included with your rental.

Ideal for families 'Serenity Now' has a great green space directly behind the huge main deck where your kids can enjoy some freedom playing on the lawn or running down the boardwalk in this safe, quiet community. The playground in Barrier Dunes has been recently redone and is just around the corner. The unit also boasts three TVs, a DVD player and books, games, toys, and puzzles to make your stay fun and relaxing.

There are tons of great activities to enjoy on the Cape, for the fisherman in you surf cast into the waves, fish in St. Joe Bay, rent a charter or take your little guys and drop a line into one of the three ponds on the property. The Cape is a great place to bike, with a bike path now extending the entire length of Cape San Blas Road (8+ miles). The state park, which is literally two minutes from Barrier Dunes, is especially good place to ride with its great views, low traffic and lots of spots to stop. You are also allowed to have fires on the beach at night, one of my kid's favorite beach memories!

If wildlife is your thing take one of the nature trails in the park and get an eyeful of the migrating monarch butterflies, the resident bald eagles, or the elusive bobcats. Put your watershoes on and stroll out into the Bay for a look at the many creatures who make their home there including stingrays, sandollars, countless varieties of fish, and all types of crabs.

If you have never experienced 'old Florida' you are in for a treat. Apalachicola is an old Coastal town only a short drive away and has great shopping and restaurants. It is a refreshing change from your typical tourist town with it's charming storefronts and the oysters here are to die for!

Come stay with us in 'Serenity Now,' bring your bathing suit and your fishing pole and leave your worries at home!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We are a family of four from Atlanta, GA and we love the Cape!

Why the Owner Chose Port St. Joe, FL, USA:
The Cape is a beautiful place to get away from our normal, hectic life. My kids especially love building a bonfire on the beach at night. They will cherish their memories of playing flashlight tag and eating sandy, burnt marshmallows. What could be better?
