About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-7)

Our Dunes Club's unit is a three-bedroom, beautifully furnished, first floor, beachfront, condominium unit. This serene property is located on the Gulf of Mexico on Cape San Blas, a large hook of land jutting out from the mainland near Port Saint Joe, Florida. Dunes Club has a swimming pool, boat and trailer storage, beach boardwalk, elevator, high speed wireless internet, and free long distance phone calling. Our unit has a large deck facing out to the Gulf of Mexico. The view is also readily available through the living room and master bedroom sliding glass doors. Colorful wooden rockers for adults and children, dining furniture and gas grill are available on the deck. There is a stairway from the deck to the ground just a few feet from the swimming pool. A boardwalk leads straight to the beach where you find few other people, if any.

Pelicans and gulls fly overhead fishing and dolphins may be seen in the water. Fishing can be done from the beach with a valid fishing license. The surf is typically gentle. This area is one of peace, quiet, and tranquillity. One can walk the beach, pick up shells, or swim. Children can run and play, swim, and build sand castles.

The front of our Dunes Club unit has an additional large deck with stairs to the ground and the other two floors above. Rocking chairs have been provided and serve as a great place to make long distance cell phone calls. The elevator and rolling carts from the ground level parking area makes moving in and out easy as well as transporting groceries.

The unit is spacious, furnished in beach décor, and includes all necessary amenities. The master bedroom features a huge king-size bed which could easily sleep three persons. It has an adjacent master bathroom with bath tub and shower. The second master bedroom has a full-size bed and an adjacent bathroom which also is accessible from the main hallway. The third bedroom is small, adorable and has a single bed. The master bedroom has a new flat screen television on the wall. The second master has a television and DVR. There is a large laundry room which provides extra storage area.

About Nancy Bass

Nancy Bass purchased this condo in 2004

Why Nancy Bass chose Florida Main North West

Cape San Blas has been my favorite beach since I discovered it 25 years ago when my daughter was a child. I always dreamed of owning a beach home here.

What makes this condo unique

Cape San Blas and Dunes Club provide quiet beaches without the noise and commotion of overdevelopment. With the beach on one side of the peninsula and the bay on the other side, you have easy access to the joys of each.

Very enjoyable stay!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The condo is lovely. The walk to the beach was enjoyable and the area is quiet. Our only problem was the wifi would come and go.

Great condo

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at the Serenity condo. The boardwalk, then the hot sand made it a little difficult for the small children. I've always stayed at the other end of the cape where the water is usually clear, but with the rainstorms everyday, I guess that's why the gulf was muddy. The condo has everything you'll need, cooking utensils, full size washer and dryer, and beach chairs, etc. there were no biting flies!

Amazing time

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time, and the property was exactly as listed. If you're looking for a quiet, relaxing time away from the commercialization of many of the Florida destinations, Cape San Blas is definitely the place to go.

The location was very clean and the beach was very nice

  • 4 of 5

Because of a broken step, one of the staircases in the complex was out of service for the whole week and was never repaired while there. The pots and pans need to be replaced. There were three can openers but none worked . There were no beach towels provided. The condo was very clean however.

Nice Condo

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this condo. We had everything we needed and the roomy balcony was wonderful. The kitchen was well appointed and the closet downstairs with the beach gear had lots of chairs and toys to use. The carts/wagons were especially appreciated. I was grateful for the pool during Tropical Storm Cindy as going to the beach was a bit iffy for a couple of days. Nancy was very responsive to any issues we had. My only suggestion would be to mount the tv in the small bedroom so that it can tilt. My daughter couldn't really see it from the bed. Also the condo association could probably stand to improve the boardwalk to the ocean. There are a few boards that were soft when stepped on and some of the rails were down and laying along the edge of the walk way. Other than that we had a wonderful time. The beach is beautiful and un-crowded. I would stay here again!

Owner's Response: Dear Emily, I am glad your family had a good vacation. I appreciate your suggestion about changing the television mount in the third bedroom so that it swivels to the best position. Others have commented on that in the past. I have now purchased a swiveling mount and will change it out as soon as possible. Also, on the boardwalk, the HOA (I am on the board) has obtained bids and will have it repaired soon. Nancy
