PERFECTLY LOCATED GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time to Cape San Blas...and let me say WOW! Beautiful white sand beach: breath taking sunsets. The house literally had everything that we needed, even things for our 4 legged family members. We would recommend this for anyone needing to escape reality and relax in the sun!

Great location on the perfect beach

  • 5 of 5
I have been vacationing at Cape San Blas since the 90's and have stayed in Barrier Dunes condos for the past 3 years. The Cape has the best beach with no crowds and clear water. We love it and it is perfect for toddlers. Our week this year at Serenity by the Sea was wonderful. The location of the unit within the complex is super convenient - only a few steps off the back deck to the beach boardwalk and very close to the beachfront pool as well. The unit is clean and comfortable even for two families with small children. Unit is well stocked with movies, books, beach toys and chairs. The kitchen is also well equipped.
The owners are very communicative. I even accidentally left a battery charger and the owners are having it shipped to me at no cost. I definitely recommend this rental listing!

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us. We're glad we were able to find your charger. Since a couple of guest had stayed since you left we weren't sure.

We are getting ready to make some improvements this winter so come back when you can and let us know what you think.

Wonderful, quiet area. Perfect beach, clean, clear and warm water. I highly recommend this house. It's right on the beach, views from all balconies are perfect. Cape San Blas is a perfect place for family vaction. Our dog enjoyed walks on the beach and swimming in the ocean. Come here, you won't be disappointed.

This is a great rental. It was very well equipped, and the owners are responsive. I would book it again in a heartbeat if it becomes available. The grounds of the complex are well maintained and safe. This is an excellent value, and a nice area to visit, especially for dog owners.

Peaceful, fun Christmas

  • 5 of 5
We spent Christmas in this very nice and comfortable condo. Two families stayed here, and we were not at all crowded. The unit is furnished nicely and the kitchen is very well equipped. It was quiet, and we were just steps from the beautiful white sand beach! We will certainly be back!

Beyond what we expected

  • 5 of 5
After 6 yrs of my husband and I not having more then 6 hours alone together and the opportunity came up for him to attend camp for 3 nights with program for adults with disabilities. Your condo was simply amazing. The king size bed was so comfortable, the jetted tub was so soothing after our biking and kayaking, loved the layout and decor. Loved the sunsets and moon lit nights. Enjoyed 8 am horseback riding on the beach and a sunset ride on our last night. Thank you for such an amazing stay and we were able to relax knowing our son was less then 2 miles away at camp. We will stay with you again next yr if unit is available.
