Keywords: Stepped On a Pop-Tart is a lovely, fully equipped, Gulf view town-home in Barrier Dunes. It is an end unit in a very quiet part of Barrier Dunes, and yet one of the closest units to the beach. It's just minutes to the beach and oceanfront pool.

The beach is pristine, fine white sand. You can walk for miles. The water is shallow near the shore, making it an excellent place for small children to play in the surf.

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 rich back bay. There is also a boat launch, so whether you bring your own boat, and yes, there is parking available for a boat at Stepped on a Pop-Tart, or whether you rent a boat, you can do so easily and conveniently.

Why Debbie LaBrec chose Port St. Joe

We have been coming to the Cape San Blas and The Forgotten Coast for almost 20 years. We like the sandy white beach and clear water.You can bring your dog on the beach and have a bonfire at night on the beach. You also can drive golf carts on the beach and Barrier Dunes has a fishing pond to with fish and turtles

What makes this townhome unique

The only Screened in Porch in Barrier Dunes to keep flies and bugs away. Best rate for a beach view and best reviews.

Serenity Now!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place for a little serenity. Townhouse is quaint and well equipped.My family and I lacked nothing as we enjoyed the sheer simplicity of the Cape and its offerings. Definitely one of the nicer units in complex.The owners are super nice and very accommodating. Will definitely return again to recharge our batteries!! Would and have recommended for anyone seeking a beautiful and quiet getaway without the tourist traps and commercialism.There are great fishing grounds in the nearby bay.

Sorry we can not recommend any restaurants as we caught our own seafood and prepared it there.(crab,fish.scallops) Trading Post nearby has wonderful steaks cut fresh daily.

Thanks again to the owners of Stepped on a Poptart for their hospitality and honesty.

Great location and lots of friendly people

Accommodations were excellent. Had trouble with multiple remotes and the dryer didn’t work, but minor issues compared to the beach location!

The beach was Great! The condo was nice and no fault of the owner but it needed a good cleaning. The view was great from the master bedroom. We would like to return to the area.

Best place ever at the Cape

  • 5 of 5

This is the 10th year coming to Barrier Dunes for Fall vacation with the kids and our dog. This condo has everything that you could imagine and so much more! I love to cook and was so afraid that it would have limited cookware, etc. and it really has it all! Hard wood floors throughout and updated furniture makes it seems like our home away from home. I am a clean freak and this place was spotless on arrival and maintained very well. The views from the deck and screened porch were gorgeous. The short walk to the beach always led to uncrowded sugar white sand and miles of great walking and shell hunting. Everyone we met was friendly and almost all had a dog. Our dog loved it! No other place has a screened in porch and with the flies being active made all the difference in grilling out and eating outside!!

We rented this condo because Cape San Blas is known as the “family beach” and we were seeking a place that was comfortable, affordable, and could appeal to both kids and adults. This was it! This unit had all the amenities such as fast Internet, TVs, new finishes and comfortable beds. It was very quiet since there is no unit above it. The kids enjoyed the clean beach and pool . We will definitely rent again.
