If you are dreaming of a vacation where you can find relaxation and white, sandy beaches in a lush setting, SunsCape in Cape San Blas is where you want to be. SunsCape is located in Barrier Dunes, a gated, private beach community at the tip of Cape San Blas in the Florida panhandle. It is the perfect place for a romantic getaway, a fun-filled vacation, or a relaxing retreat.
As inviting as SunsCape is, the real stars of the show are the Gulf of Mexico with its secluded dunes and sugar-sand beaches, and the adjacent locales of St. Joseph State Park and St. Joe Bay. You have the luxury of enjoying these three areas at your doorstep. The beach offers sunset walks, surf fishing, bonfires, and opportunities to watch the dolphins at play. St. Joseph Park offers opportunities to see varied wildlife, launch your boat, or go crabbing or biking. St. Joe Bay offers different boating and fishing experiences including kayaking.
SunsCape is an end unit located on one of the large ponds in a quiet part of Barrier Dunes. All three ponds are stocked, and you can fish or watch the turtles as they swim across. The beach is a short 5 minute walk through our lushly landscaped beach community, and it is even fewer steps to the two pools, tennis courts, and playground.
Over the last 2 l/2 years, the townhome has been 90% updated. The kitchen is brand new with new cupboard, counter tops and stove.. The living area has all hardwood floors. Furniture in the living room includes a queen sleeper sofa and love seat. The counter-height dining room set accommodates 6 people, and there are two extra chairs at the breakfast bar for extra seating. There is a half-bath off the living area. Also off the living area is a large deck that has patio seating where you can enjoy outdoor dining and relaxing while looking out over the pond, or just sit back and enjoy a good book and a glass of wine while dinner is cooking on the gas grill.
The kitchen has a stove, microwave, dishwasher, and refrigerator and is well-equipped. We have tried to supply all of the little conveniences that make you feel right at home.
The second level, where both bedrooms are located, is carpeted. Our town home will comfortably sleep 4-6 people. The master bedroom has a comfortable king-size bed with a full private bath and a balcony that overlooks the pond where you can see small fountains reflecting the look of a rainbow. The second bedroom has a queen-size bedroom set with a private full bath and and a deck that overlooks tropical foliage and palms. Extra blankets are provided, along with towels and sheets. The full-size washer and dryer are located on the upper level in between the two bedrooms.
There are three flat-screen TV's including a 42' with Blu-Ray in the main living area, and a 32' TV in each bedroom. The TV in the second bedroom is equipped with a DVD player. Long distance calls are free, and Wi-Fi is provided.
This is a townhome that has been dramatically improved and updated while remaining cozy, comfortable and inviting. It is tastefully decorated with a warm, tropical theme. It faces west and gets warm afternoon sun. (A plus for snow birds!)
Barrier Dunes has street lights and paved walks and is secure. It is a dog-friendly community with many pet stations located throughout the complex. We welcome well-behaved dogs. The beach is dog-friendly as well. The covered carport houses two cars. Some beach supplies can be found in our downstairs storage room.
The new 9-mile bike path starts a few feet from the development. Other cities nearby offer quaint shopping and dining experiences. In Port St. Joe you can charter fishing trips, scuba and snorkel.
The theme of SunsCape is fun and relaxation. Once you have come to know Cape San Blas, we think you will agree it is one of the most beautiful, relaxing places in the U.S. Whether you're enjoying the view of the pond from the front deck, taking a lazy walk on the beach in the ocean breeze, exploring wildlife at the park, taking in the scenery or enjoying a boat ride nearby, you're sure to return home renewed and refreshed! We hope you will consider SunsCape for your vacation stay.

About the owner: We are Karen & Rich Donelan. Being from Cleveland, Ohio, it is wonderful coming down to beautiful Florida weather.
Why the Owner Chose Port Saint Joe, FL, USA:
We have been coming to Barrier Dunes for 12 years and loved it so much, we finally decided to become owners. We knew we could take this home and make it your home away from home while having a memorable beach vacation.
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
There are so many things to love about Barrier Dunes. Among the many things we enjoy are bringing our 2 dogs with us and watching them have a great time as they walk on the beach or dip their paws in the water. We also enjoy sitting on the deck and watching the sun dip down through the trees.
