Relax at our 2 Swimming pools and tennis courts. Walk miles of deserted sugar white sand beaches. Hike the six mile sand trail north through St. Joseph State Park to the tip of Cape San Blas and see Florida as the Spanish conquistadors did. Marvel at the huge sand dunes, flora and fauna along the way. You'll see deer and other wildlife in their natural habitat. Try your luck at fishing from the shore right outside your door and, if they're not biting, you can still enjoy the best Gulf of Mexico fish, shrimp, oysters and scallops at local restaraunts or from local markets in nearby Port St. Joe or Apalachicola. Cape San Blas has a well-deserved reputation for bird watching throughout the year. Beach Breeze is fully equipped with, microwave, all kitchen utensils, coffee maker, blender, new flat screen TV with cable, DVD's, VCR's, stereo, games, and books. There are three bedrooms - one king, one queen, and one bedroom with twin beds.

Best Family Vacation Yet!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing week!!! I'm a little depressed that it's over. Gil was so accommodating and available with any questions throughout my trip planning. Once we arrived, there was everything we needed and more for a perfect vacation. This was mine and my family's first time to the Cape, and we will definitely be back. The beaches were perfect and never crowded. You could get your perfect spot at the beach anytime of day! Everyone also left their stuff at the beach overnight, like tents and toys, etc. Which was really nice to not have to worry about your things as well as carrying them back and forth everyday. Also, it's hard to tell from the pictures how close the beach really is. My niece counted her steps, she's 13, anyway it's 129 steps from the deck to the sand :) The main deck has steps that lead directly to the beach walkway. The community pool is also right next door, looking at google maps, it's looks farther than it is. I didn't count the steps, but I would say from the front door to the pool is probably 150 steps.

The Trading Post will become your favorite place, fresh donuts in the morning, and everything in between. We stayed and cooked a lot at our condo, but we did venturing to Port St. Joe (25 minutes away) For dinner a couple nights.

Gil has 2 beach umbrella's a few beach toys, coolers, and beach chairs available for use. The kitchen is completely stocked with anything you can ever need. I LOVE to cook, and I was not disappointed in any amenities. My only suggestion if you book this condo, is to bring a few more wash cloths. There are plenty of puzzles and board games for kids, lots of books if you like to read. The couches and beds are comfortable. I agree with the other review about bringing your own sheets, just to save time washing before you leave.

Lastly, I want to thank Gil for renting out his place to us. I can not express in words how wonderful our vacation was and I am one picky person. I'm glad we stayed at Beach Breeze and can't wait to come back!

Long story short, this place is perfect...if you're on the fence between this condo or another. Book this one, you won't regret it!

Excellent Getaway Right on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

This was an AWESOME place to stay!!! You will not be sorry... we took our two dogs and two girls with us and we all had a GREAT time!! The girls loved the shelling on the beach and the night bonfires on the beach were amazing. We also loved the pool near the townhouse. A perfect getaway - and Gil was so great! Checked in to be sure all was good and readily available when we had questions. We LOVED the fresh donut place on Cape San Blas at the Cape Trading Post (went there a few times for misc. stuff we needed - like Milk) - You MUST try the fried Croissants...OMG!!! Another MUST DO is the Rockin' M Ranch - horseback riding on the beach... A++++ - my husband does NOT ride - and he really liked it - Russell made him feel so comfortable - they were all great and it was amazing!! Awesome grill on the townhouse deck and lot of extra beach toys/pool toys too. Next time I would probably bring my own sheets to save time in having to wash them on the last day. We will definitely be back to stay at Gil's place... it's true what they say - you don't have to DO a lot on this type of vacation - it's all about relaxing and enjoying life. We didn't even go up to Mexico Beach like we thought we would. We did go out to Apalachicola - well worth the drive out! Best vacation ever... so happy to have found this jewel!! MUST do yearly get away!! Thanks Gil... you will see us again!!! - Jolene

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with two teenage boys and a yorkie spent a week at this unit. The unit is clean, comfortable and stocked with everything you could possibly need. The location is beach front and the views are amazing. The living room provides plenty of seating for everyone to stretch out and watch movies on the large flat screen television. There are loads of games and books available. Great dining room area. The kitchen is very well equipped and there is a gas grill on the deck off the living room. There are decks with seating off the living room and each bedroom. The beds are comfortable. Each bedroom has a full bath. The water pressure is very good. Each day when we came in from the beach we could rinse off at the shower/hose on the deck and wash the sand off our chairs. Everything you could possibly need is provided. The owner, Gil, is very professional, responsive and personable. He made everything so easy and his friendly nature made it a pleasure. We will without hesitation stay in this unit again. Barrier Dunes is gated community, nicely landscaped with two pools and a tennis court.

Perfect place for a quiet dog friendly beach get away!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this location. Cape San Blas is a sort of secluded beach that is perfect for a relaxing get away. We, my husband, his parents, 2 dogs, and I, had plenty of room in this house. No matter where you went in the house you could have a wonderful view of the beach or the little community the house is in. We took many wonderful sunset pictures and even had a fire on the beach one night. The owner of the house is absolutely great at providing info and communication on your stay! We can't wait to plan our next visit to this location!

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The House had more than enough room. The views were beautiful and the walk to the beach could not have been any Better. The house was clean and the kitchen was stocked with everything you could need! Gil had a very quick response when a question was asked while we were on our trip! Thank you so much for help making our family trip unforgettable. We will definitely be back!!!

About Gil

Joanne and I grew up in the Ft. Lauderdale area and are both retired educators with a combined total of 73 years in the classroom, I with 30 years and Joanne with 42. We have also owned and operated Sun World Travel in Tallahassee since 1981 and we are now the oldest and largest travel agency in Leon County.

Why Gil chose Port St. Joe

Both Joanne and I grew up on the water in South Florida and we had been looking for several years for a place on the Gulf. When we saw Beach Breeze at Barrier Dunes, we knew this was the place for us. The beautiful beach and water, not to mention Barrier Dunes with it's two pools, tennis courts and strong homeowners association made our decision easy. Having St. Joe State Park a stone's throw away was a definite plus..

What makes this townhome unique

From any one of the three Gulf-front decks you can witness the most beautiful sunsets anywhere on earth. We never get tired of taking pictures of the sunsets, beach and Gulf because no photo is ever the same as the last one. From the deck off the living room you are only about 45 seconds from the sand!
