About the Property
Townhome, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths,AT (Sleeps 5-8)
At Beach-Berry townhome, I want you and your family, young and old alike, to feel relaxed and carefree. I have included many extras you would not normally find in a beach rental. So enjoy the complimentary wine, sand toys and chairs for your family to take to the beach, floats, boogie boards and beach balls for the swimming pools, rainy day toys/activities for the children, a variety of movies and CD's by top artists. There are facilites/supplies to wash your boat, FIVE ADULT BIKES including one 3 wheeler with large basket for riding in Barrier Dunes and on the peninsula bike trail; a book collection of novels, children's bedtime story books, and TENNIS RACKETS for the nearby courts. You will find a well stocked kitchen with every large and small appliance/utensil that I could imagine you would need for preparing family meals. You have a nice size electric stove/oven, built in microwave, dishwasher and a refrigerator with an ice maker. I have even included some spices and cookbooks. China and sliverware service will accommodate at least eight.
New purchases include a flat screen Sony Bravo TV, new coffee maker with automatic shut-off timer, George Foreman 24' Electric Grill, and a large gas grill with side burner for cooking up the catch of the day, a very comfortable elegant futon for relaxing and enjoying a good book. To stay connected and share your beach experiences a new router for wireless internet service has just been installed.
For your grooming and comfort needs, I have included extra coat hangers, an iron/ironing board, and 2 hair dryers. I stock good quality bed linens, thick towels, soaps, soft tissue paper and paper towels. The laundry room on the main floor has a full size washer and dryer.
My townhome will comfortably sleep 6-8 people.The large master bedroom has a queen size bed, and a futon that easily folds out to a comfortable bed that will sleep one adult or two children. The master bathroom has a double sink vanity, and a shower separate from the tub. The guest bedroom has two twin beds and a full bath. Down stairs in the large living /dining area is the couch that converts into a comfortable queen size bed. There is also a half bath on this floor.
The floor plan is open and bright with a large bay window seat with comfortable pillows for reading or just daydreaming. The large wood dining table will seat 6, and there is a kitchen bar and 2 stools, and small kitchen table/2 chairs for extra seating. The open floor plan allows you to cook while keeping an eye on the actitivites going on in the main living area.
You will just love the large screened in back porch off the living area with western Gulf horizon exposure overlooking the lake's fountain. The sound of the water cascading from the fountain is very soothing. As the sun peeks out after a shower on a hot summer day, you may capture the rainbow arching over the sparkling water of the fountain.
Beach-Berry is family friendly, so bring the kids and grandparents. Enjoy, relax, and make beautiful memories. You will want to return every year.

Nearby activities include water and land tours of historic Port St. Joe and Apalachicola. Tour the islands of St. George or St. Vincent National Wildlife refuge, an unspoiled island, climb to the top of the Cape's historic light house, venture out by boat or hike to the end of the Cape where the bay meets the sea. There is so much to do and see on Florida's Forgotten Coast. Escape to the Cape.
Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: I live in DeFuniak Springs, Fl. which is 100 miles from the Cape. I have traveled to many beautiful places, however few areas compare to the natural beauty of the Cape and Florida's Forgotten Coast. My family and friends in Northwest Florida feel this is a very special place to unwind and enjoy 'Old Florida'' the way it was before high rises and theme parks. My family has visited St. Joseph Peninsula State Park many times. In January of 2012, I had the good fortune to purchase my beautiful townhome situated in the premier community of Barrrier Dunes.It was love at first sight. I knew the time was right for me to buy my vacation home. I recently retired from education, and I plan to spend much of my time at Barrier Dunes wth family and friends. My home was in excellent condition when I purchased it. However, I have spent many hours adding the little extra touches and conveniences to make this a very special place for me, as well as, my guests.
Why the Owner Chose Port St. Joe, FL, USA:
I knew I wanted to have a vacation home near or on the Cape. Barrier Dunes has it all--small gated community, family oriented atmosphere, tennis courts, swimming pools, club house, playground, three small lakes and one of the best beaches in the USA. Best of all, Barrier Dunes abuts St. Joseph Peninsula State Park. You are in an ocean front community and directly across the street is beautiful St. Joesph Bay. You could not ask for more.
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
My family and friends love to fish and go scalloping. We have caught bass in Barrier Dunes ponds, whiting and pompano in the ocean surf, red fish, trout and flounder in the bay, and have scooped buckets full of bay scallops. We also like to ride our bikes on the 15 mile Peninsula bike trail, hike the trails around the 20 ft. dunes, explore the bay by kayak, or take boat trips in the bay and gulf. When the surf is up, my son is surfing. My mid-western relatives are looking foward to the well-maintained lighted tennis courts of Barrier Dunes and the St. Joseph Bay Golf Course just 15 minutes away. Evenings are spent watching the sunset, strolling the beach, and collecting shells. At Barrier Dunes you will meet new friends over a beach bonfire on a starry night. There is plenty to do within walking or bike riding distance. Just park your car, chill out, and bring your fishing gear.
