Overview

About the property

2 bedroom 2.5 bath w/super loft

- Close also Counts in Beach Houses -

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 just added 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.

Isn’t it time for a vacation?

Close Enough was really close enough!!!

  • 5 of 5

Nice, comfortable unit! Distance to beach was just close enough!

The weather during our stay was good but not great! We missed the beautiful sunsets we used to enjoy! We will need to go back soon...

The owners made sure everything was in working order! Thank you for sharing your unit!

Ok townhouse limited parking, rats & biting flies!

  • 2 of 5

Though the townhouse itself is very comfortable, we had problems with the parking. If you have a normal full size suv or truck, we had a yukon, don't plan on being able to use the carport. We had to fold our rearview mirrors back & climb out the back of the truck, as we had no room to open the doors. Finally found extra parking two streets over in the grass. Pools & beach were ok, have seen much prettier beaches, but the biting flies & rats running around all over the complex were the real deal killer. . Am not generally a complainer, but after the long drive to get here & the price we paid, did not expect to not be able to sit out on the deck for fear of being eaten alive by horse flies! Maybe it's just the time of year for them, but a heads up would really been appreciated by all eight of us. So heads up to future vacationers.

Owner's Response: We are glad this family found the townhouse “very comfortable.” We are sure you will too. We take a lot of pride in Close Enough, and that is reflected in our many 5-star reviews. We appreciate feedback from our guests, even if it is critical. Parking a large SUV under any of the townhomes at Barrier Dunes is tight. We usually just pull the front of our SUV under the home and leave the rest of it in the short driveway. Just don’t park in the road. Smaller SUVs and cars fit fine. We’ve also noticed that roof top car carriers are too tall. You’ll probably have to take them off to fit under the home. In case it wasn’t clear in their review, the rodents were outside. Our guests take good care of our home, and the cleaning crew does a wonderful job. The forgotten coast isn’t as overdeveloped as other Florida beaches. We still have critters and bugs. Expect to see mice, snakes, turtles, and even dolphins. The yellow flies peak around May. Stable (Dog) flies can come out in the fall, especially a couple of days after a cold front. We don’t like them either, but would rather have flies than overdevelopment. Bring your insect repellent along with your sunscreen. If you have any questions during your stay, please give us a call. We are here to help.

Great location for a dog friendly/welcome vacation.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay so much that we asked to extend it by one day. Very relaxing vacation. Great for the people who don't need to be entertained by commercialized jargon. Our two labs would have rated it 5+! They had the time of their lives and slept like logs at the end of the day.

Owner's Response: This community really is for dog lovers. Visitors can walk the beach or take their furry family members around the neighborhood for a pleasurable stroll. Dog stations are located throughout the area.

Birthday Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Celebrated a Birthday, Plenty of Space, lots of stairs- the Girls stayed in the loft playing games and watching movies. Had a Bonfire Saturday Night, toasted Marshmallows/Smores galore... Our Westie loves the beach, does not love the sand spurs!! Condo is comfy & cozy; with beach items, full kitchen with plenty of dishes, glasses, pots and pans. Great Location! Very Pet Friendly Gated Community. Owners are very responsive to any questions we had in a timely manner.

Thank You so much.

Owner's Response: We think the loft is a perfect hangout for teens - especially on a birthday weekend. We are glad your Westie enjoyed the beach. We strive to maintain a comfy, cozy atmosphere for our guests.

One of our favorite trips!!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to Close Enough with our dog and found everything we needed in this wonderful condo!

We found everything as listed on the rental site and the pictures accurately showed every room. The property is clean and well-maintained, and the kitchen was well-stocked with everything we needed to cook.

Angela was very responsive to all of my questions and was really helpful in getting payment sorted out. She was wonderful to work with!

The location was great and we loved how remote and quiet it was. We hardly left the condo all week except to walk the dog and walk on the beach. The waves were a little too rough too swim when we were there, but it was always a nice walk. Everyone in the community was so nice and friendly!

Overall, I couldn't say enough good thing about Close Enough! We definitely hope to go back next year for another relaxing and restful vacation!
