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.

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.

Poptart was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We loved "stepped on a Poptart" and hope to stay there again next year. The place was just right for us and our pups. So CLOSE to the beach and we really enjoyed the screened porch! Beds were very nice. I went and bought the same pillows that I had there, once I was home. We had all that we needed for an awesome and relaxing week of beach fun.

Fantastic Family Vacation. Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect! Very comfortable and convenient to the beach. Well supplied with everything you need for cooking and just relaxing watching TV after a fun day at the beach. We enjoyed having coffee on the screen porch and cocktails on the top bedroom porch watching the sunset over the ocean. We will return next year!!

Highly recommend this property!

Perfect for a relaxing beach vacation with family!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this townhouse, it's the perfect distance to the beach and pool. There was an endless supply of dvds and toys for rainy days. The porch is screened and we loved that! They even have baby gates for little ones that shouldn't be on stairs. Beach Chairs and sand toys were such a bonus that we didn't have to pack or buy and leave behind. There's an outdoor shower which came in handy for washing the entire beach from your children before hauling them upstairs 😊� The master suite is large, and the bunk beds were a huge hit! The kitchen had everything we would need for a weeks stay and the grill was used often! We would absolutely stay in this property again. Thank you so much!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and very happy you enjoyed the condo and took the time to write a review and give an honest opinion. I forgot about the baby gates in the closet so thanks for reminding me of that so others may use them. I am glad the beach chairs worked out also. I supply new ones each year but sometimes they get left down at the beach and thrown away

Great freedom beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5

At the Barrier Dunes in Cap San Blas we enjoyed many freedoms. Leaving our stuff on the beach was ultra convenient. The beach was not crowded at all and made us feel like we were in a nice community of vacationers, but not overcrowded like other FL beaches we've been to. I was pleasantly surprised with the short walk to the beach and to the pool. An overall great location within the Barrier Dunes community.

The unit is very nice and updated. It easily accommodated our 3 kids (1 being a baby). The master bedroom is upstairs and out of the way allowing us to put our little one down for naps in the afternoons. The bunk beds in the other room was a nice touch for our other 2 kids. The movie selection was great and gave the kids something to do during down times. The deck was larger than I expected and lends to a great BBQ setting with the ocean in the background.

The owners were very responsive and accommodating.

We would definitely rent this unit again and recommend to friends.

Screened in Porch is awesome

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Stepped on a Poptart in June and it was a wonderful and fantastic place! They had all the things we needed, a great view of sunset, and steps away from the beach! The screened in porch was a life saver because of the mosquitos that came out at sunset. The kids and our dog loved eating outside on the porch also.The property was clean and very well maintained! They had a bedroom downstairs on the main level, and the master upstairs. The porch was covered with a grill and a table outside. We enjoyed our home cooked meals outside watching the sunset! They had new HDTV TVs in the kids room, living room and master bedroom. Tons of DVDs which we watched one day when it rained. It was nice not having to cross a street to get to the beach. We have stayed at Barrier Dunes for 12 years and this place is by far the best deal for the money
