Amazing Beach Stay

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed this unit! The kids bedroom was very stuffy so we brought some fans! Other than that we loved it! Location was perfect for beach and main pool! Can’t imagine going anywhere else ever again! As a plus, they even had dog crates so the few times we left our German Shepherd we didn’t have to worry about her getting into anything! Will be back!

Fantastic place to stay for families with their dogs. Nice quiet beach and pool.

  • 4 of 5

The beach was beautiful and the waves are pretty gentle. It's not crystal clear water that you can see thr but there was hardly any jellyfish or seaweed and such in the water. The townhouse was comfortable. Nicely decorated and stocked with all the necessities. My kids loved the window seat. My daughter wanted to sleep there. The community is very family and pet friendly. I enjoyed walking my dog around the community and the beach. We even got to meet and talk with some fellow Sheltie owners while on the beach. We stayed with our three children 12, 10, and 6 which enjoyed the bunk beds. As they get older this unit will probably not work for us because they will want their own space but for now it was perfect. A few things went wrong which I wish were taken care of before we arrived. The kitchen sink garbage disposal did not work and after signing and reading all the rules numerous times we were afraid we would be blamed for it. You would think that house cleaning would have noted this upon cleaning up from the previous guests. It did not get fixed until we had a more serious problem of the fire alarm chirping which woke us up and made our dog bark at 4 am and other times disturbing us. Lastly, the carport lights did not work and so we could not see to rinse things off at night. We saw others had working lights and thought maybe it was for the turtles but no they just were not fixed until we asked during the fire alarm trouble. We loved the convenience of having rinse off stations below the units. My kids and I enjoyed the pool late at night but could never tell if we were suppose to be in there but atleast we were not the only ones. Overall I would stay here again because it is a wonderful family beach and we will still travel with our fur baby.

Owner's Response: Melissa, I'm glad you all enjoyed your stay. It's always unfortunate when small things go wrong in the unit but I'm glad we were able to fix everything as soon as you brought it to our attention. We hope to have you all back for another visit! Stefanie

Great location.

  • 4 of 5

Even though Barrier Dunes properties are older, they are clean and well maintained. This particular unit is in a great location, just across the street from the main beachside pool with easy access to the beach.

Our fourth time at Barrier Dunes...but our first at this property. It is now our favorite...and intend to always return to this property.

WiFi is still spotty at best...

Stove has seen better days...

But everything else is first class.

Highly recommend.
