Barrier Dunes 188 - Turtle Tracks is just 90 steps off your back deck on a boardwalk stroll to 1 of the prettiest beaches in the world!

Enjoy great views from either side of the home!

You will find it well-stocked and well-maintained & ready for you & your family to come enjoy a relaxing beach vacation on Cape San Blas! Pristine white sand beaches. The last of the 'old Florida' beaches. No crowds!

You'll love the white quartz sand that doesn't burn your feet, the sand dunes that give the setting character, & the gentle gulf waves. The fishing is great, the crabbing fun & the activities abound from boating, hiking, beach bonfires,spectacular sunsets (our beaches faces west), horseback riding on the beach and tennis to impromptu socials.

All of life becomes casual & fun once you breathe the glorious salt air & let go of what you left behind. Try it & you'll be coming back regularly like most of our guests (see our guest book on our website.

Barrier dunes, our gated community, has 2 pools (1 is beach front & 1 heated), lighted tennis courts, 3 fresh water fishing ponds, playground and pet stations throughout. Enjoy the quiet, unspoiled, dog-friendly beaches of the Florida Panhandle!

Nestled up to the state park and surrounded by water, it is the perfect place for a nature lovers explorations. Boating, restaurants & other diversions are only minutes away, yet many of our guests never leave Barrier Dunes.

Play tennis, swim in the pools, sunbath on the beach while watching the ever changing scenes, fish, crab, stir up a card game or read till your hearts content.

Pet lovers are overjoyed at being able to bring along fido, especially those who like to make an extended stay with us.

We know what it is like not to have what you need when you're on vacation! We try and provide as many of these extras a possible so you are focused on your vacation, family and fun and not on the basics! We encourage you to catch your own dinner of scallops, crabs or fish and bring along some marshmallows and enjoy s'mores around the beach bonfire or roast hot dogs for dinner!

Our goal is to make your stay as good as it gets. To make room for the pooch in your car, we provide every basic essential we can think of (see details on site), but we don't stop there. Imagine a kitchen that is stocked w/spices, crock pot, & crab pot. Picture yourself not having to pack the car with beach chairs, the boogie board, & beach toys. If you're bringing a younger beach goer...No need to pack the pack and play or high chair! Enjoy a grill on the gulf view deck.

Don't forget your dog(s)...Cape San Blas beaches are pet-friendly & so are all of our rentals! Large dogs are not a problem!

See our website for many more details about barrier dunes, Cape San Blas, and the area!
