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 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.

Isn’t it time for a vacation?

Perfect Property!!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Owner's Response: 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!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Back again!

  • 5 of 5

Once again, another relaxing and enjoyable week at this lovely town home. We have been repeat visitors to CSB and Barrier Dunes for several years now. This is our 3rd stay in this home. Even Tropical Storm Cindy did not cause too much of an issue during our stay....lots of puzzles, games, and books to keep us busy during the two days of rain. "Close Enough" has comfortable beds for all, comfortable living room and deck seating, an easy to cook in kitchen, and a well stocked beach closet (chairs, umbrella, sand toys, and boogie boards). We will be back again soon!

Owner's Response: Thank you Susan for continuing to return to Close Enough and sharing your kind words. The beach is fun even when the weather doesn't cooperate. Close Enough is our "home away from home," so we try to stock it accordingly.

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!
