With two bedrooms and four twin beds in the loft, your family can really spread out in Close Enough. Bring a second family and split the cost, or invite the grandparents to watch the kids build sand castles.
You’ll be at the beach or pool in a couple of minutes. Don’t worry if you forget your sunscreen at the townhouse. It’s close enough that you’ll be back in a flash.
- Ground Level -
You’ll find beach chairs and sand toys in the outside closet. When you return from the beach, rinse off in the private outdoor shower. You can access the shower directly from the boardwalk.
- First Floor -
Take a break from the sun and sand in the comfy living room. Watch some TV on the flat screen or take a nap on the sleeper sofa. WIFI and unlimited long distance are included, but why not just put together a jigsaw puzzle? We provide those too.
The kitchen is updated, and as one guest wrote, there are “enough dishes and cookware for an army.” Enjoy your meals at the table, bar, or even outside on the deck. Of course, there is a gas grill.
- Second Floor -
The sunset from the master bedroom deck is fantastic. We have tall chairs so the railing doesn’t block your ocean view. Both bedrooms have private bathrooms. The mattresses are comfortable, and the TVs are flat screens.
- Super Loft –
Kids of all ages love the loft. Everyone gets their own bed, and there’s even another flat screen TV just for them.
- About Barrier Dunes –
This gated community has two pools and tennis courts. The three ponds are stocked, so bring your fishing gear. Cape San Blas is a vacation paradise for families. Its beaches are known for their seclusion and pristine white sand.

What's not to love!?
I cannot emphasize enough how perfect this townhouse was for two families. First of all, the condo is in a quiet, gated community and right away, we felt stress-free being away from all the commercialized beaches. We went over spring break and were lucky enough to have nice weather (coming from Wisconsin, any day over 70 degrees felt very comfortable). The beach is beautiful and clean. The sand was white and felt silky. We enjoyed the waves during the days and one night had a camp fire. If you purchase wood from the local Trading Post, make sure you get lighter fluid as well, the wood is hard to get started right away, but lasts a long time. The townhouse fit 9 people (two families) comfortably. The two bedrooms with king sized beds were comfortable and had plenty of pillows, space to put your clothes, and nice, large closets. Having bathrooms attached to each one was great, we didn't all need to share one space. We loved having the laundry between the two bedrooms, it was very conveniently placed. We had five kids with us between the ages of 12-18 and they loved the loft. We knew the place only had 4 twin beds, so we brought an air mattress with us so that all the kids could sleep in the same room together. We didn't need to bring anything with us, everything was fully stocked; extra blankets, linens, and beach towels. The kitchen was stocked as well, the only thing you need to do is bring your own food. Piggly Wiggly in Port St. Joe is a good place to shop for your grocery needs. It is a bit of a drive, so it's good to stock up. However, there are convenience stores close by if you need something last minute. The kids thought it was great that beach supplies were provided (we were thankful, too). We had a lot of fun in the house. With the 4 levels, we got creative and played hide-and-go-seek in the dark and had NERF wars (if you find NERF bullets laying around... sorry!). The kids enjoyed the heated pool near the tennis courts, feeding the turtles in the pond, looking for chameleons and walking around the complex. Panama City Beach is the closest popular beach, which was about a 45 minute drive, we enjoyed a day up there checking out all the Spring Breakers and shopping. We also checked out a quaint little town called Apalachicola, they had some nice stores and a cool Natural Estuarine Research Center that was free where you could learn about the wildlife that live in fresh and salt waters. Close Enough does not disappoint!
We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Close Enough. Thank you for the rave review. Our family loves to vacation with friends, and we find Close Enough perfect for two families. We haven't tried nerf wars or hide-n-seek, but I think we will have to on our next trip. I'm glad you took advantage of the areas around. Panama City Beach is a great place to people watch, but glad you chose Cape San Blas to stay. Apalachicola is where we married, so I have a certain fondness for that quaint coastal town. We hope you'll visit again.
Home sweet second home
Close enough has been our home sweet away from home for the last 3 years. We would really prefer to not say how much we LOVE this place and how we appreciate Ron and Angela that so willing share this place. It has everything we need and more. It's simply perfect for us. Barrier Dunes is our second family for the winter and have made lifelong friends their. The only part I dislike....is I have to leave. Counting the days til I'm back at the Cape .
Thank you Julie for such kind words. We enjoy renters who treat Close Enough as their own. We are grateful for return renters who communicate well and leave only because their time is up. See you again next year!
Great Beach Condo!!
If you are looking for a comfortable, updated condo at the beach-this is the place for you! We have stayed at Cape San Blas for several years now and this is one of our favorite condos we have stayed at. When you first walk in, there is a nice sized entry before the stairs. This was perfect for us to put our shoes and hang up our jackets (it was a little chilly over christmas this year!). The stairs lead up to a large living room with a big TV. The furniture in the living room was very comfortable and the coffee table was perfect to do a puzzle on. There is a large dining room table and a very updated kitchen. The kitchen had everything we needed for our stay. One of our favorite things about this condo was how comfortable the beds were. The mattress in the master bedroom was one of the most comfortable mattresses we have slept on!! The view from the master bedroom was also great. We sat out there several nights to watch the sun set and watch the ocean waves. One of the complaints I would have is that the pillows were a little flat and I found that I took several from the other room and the loft to make it more comfortable. The other complaint is that the driveway and parking area was very small. While we were there, they were getting ready to have the exterior painted and there were stacks of ladders in the car port which blocked it and did not allow us to pull our car in very far. The driveway leading into the carport was also very short. This is the reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5. Everything else about this condo is GREAT and I would highly recommend renting from the owners. The owners were great about getting back to me quickly and answered all of my questions. Will definitely be booking with them again!
We appreciate you taking the time to give Close Enough a review. Thank you for naming us one of your favorites. We recently replaced both bedrooms with king mattresses. Thanks to your input, we now have four pillows (2 firm, 2 mildly firm) in the master bedroom. Parking is tight in Barrier Dunes. It's a downfall most units face. Great feedback allows us to improve. Please come stay at Close Enough again.
The first time I spoke with the owner, Angela, I knew we had a match made in Heaven for our month stay at Cape San Blas. She was very cordial, informative & extremely accommodating to our requests. We found Close Enough to be just that ~ a short 3-4 minute walk to the beach. The townhouse was more lovely than the pictures showed. The kitchen is very updated/upgraded with every convenience & more dishes, pots, pans, utensils, beach chairs, toys, etc. than you can imagine. I was super impressed that there is a fragrance diffuser that puffs a clean smell every few minutes! You would never know this is a pet friendly property & we even took our two fur babies. Enough room to sleep at least 10 or more, depending on size. Enough room to entertain inside as well as outside. We were more than satisfied with our stay & will certainly return. Thanks so much for allowing us to spend a glorious month at the Cape!
We enjoy sharing our home with great renters. When the little extras are appreciated, it makes us smile. Close Enough is our home away from home, so we aim to keep it stocked with items that accommodate all our needs. We hope you'll come stay again.
Perfect condo for family vacation!
Had so much fun on a last minute family vacation to this beautiful beach! Close Enough was just a few steps from the sugary sand and beautiful clear waters of the gulf. We hung out on the beach until after dark enjoying the beautiful sunsets. The 3rd floor loft was perfect for our 4 kids to have their own space and hang out. The owners put a lot of thought into the decorating as well as the games and movies available for kids. They also had tons of beach chairs, boogie boards, shovels, buckets and nets for catching fish and crabs at night. They also left us with some wood for building a fire at night. The outdoor shower also came in handy for showering off after being at the beach. The place also smelled clean. Sometimes you get a musty smell from places near the beach. It was clean and provided everything we needed. Loved the complex. 2 pools, 2 tennis courts and plenty of room to bike. Perfect family vacation!
Thank you for the kind words. We aim to make Close Enough a place that families can enjoy. Our kids enjoy the loft as a space to hang out and play games. We try to provide items that encourage fun family time together as well. We hope you'll stay with us again.
