Sheer Bliss In February

  • 5 of 5
Upon our arrival, we immediately felt at home! The Seahorse Inn's beachy decor is subtle and tasteful, not like some we have seen. First impression was sunlight and airiness. Kitchen was fully equipped, for once I didn't have to buy anything. But what had sold me in choosing this unit was knowing it was recently refurnished and all the mattresses were very comfortable pillow-topped. This little comfort speaks volume for an older couple like us, as we slept so well every night!

Grace, our cream colored English Retriever had the time of her life meeting so many other wet noses, it was paradise for her. The Barrier Dunes even have dog stations here and there indicating their pride in keeping the area clean and again it re-inforces their welcome to your furry friend. Nowhere else have I seen so many happy faces. Cape San Blas has to be the best sugar white beach, uncrowded that makes a pet lover so welcome.

The owner of this unit was most helpful and any detail pertaining to our trip was dealt very efficiently. We appreciated the binder at our disposal containing information about the unit and area, even a great list of eating areas, some of them dog-friendly, (something you won't find at home)peppered with his own remarks.

All toll, one great vacation!

Great Time in CSB

  • 5 of 5
This was a great weekend. The owner was nice enough to let us stay for 2 nights. We had a wonderful time. The place was very clean,. and the ac worked well.( I've been in some of the Barrier Dunes properties where the ac didn't work very well.) The place was furnished nicely with all the comforts of home. The owner was easy to work with and responded quickly to all emails.

Great Stay for everyone!

This is an excellent place to stay! If you're looking for some peace and quiet and not an over crowded beach this is it! The owner responded to all my emails and even sent a detailed list of recommendation to places to eat. We only ate out once, while delicious we primarily cooked there. The beach is literally a few steps away, just to the back of the community, not far at all. It was literally a home away from home (as i own a townhome myself.) The neighbors were great, and quiet and plenty of dogs for my dogs to sniff/meet. Even though there's not a lot of stuff to do we were ok with that, just needed to disconnect from the world for a few days. We went horseback riding on the beach, climbed some rocks and watched the sunset, and went on a 8mi skate (there's a 9mi path one way 18mi total down the cape) and treated ourselves to some ice cream in a waffle cone and sat outside to enjoy it. We brought the bikes but were pretty worn out the final day that we just worked on a puzzle I brought, plus were both were sunburnt (yes we wore sunblock). My only concern was we left some food in the fridge (I thought the boyfriend was getting it), because of extra cleaning for housekeepers, but quickly made him aware, and this did not affect our deposit. Just follow the rules on the package he gives you and your good! If your a low maintenance, chill person who enjoys a quiet getaway, well you'll be good here.

Relaxing, comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5
We picked this area because we knew this was a part of Florida that is not commercially exploited and the beaches are pet friendly. We found this particular property clean and very welcoming. The interior design puts you right into the vacation mode.
There were plenty of supplies available.
The owner was very response and friendly from the start and answered all our questions in a timely manner. He gave us a ton of information on the area and the file in the den was very helpful too!
We both really loved the complex and the beach and I had a hard time leaving.
Our dogs enjoyed the beach and swimming in the water. We had them cleaned up at the boat cleaning station and dried by the time we reached the condo so that we never had any problems inside with wet/messy dogs.
The day after we returned I advised the owner of a few things we thought might need his attention and his response came the next day. He refunded our deposit that same day and we received it today in the mail (4 days after our return).
Overall we are extremely satisfied.
Thank you.

Great place for family and fido

  • 4 of 5
I'm compelled to post a review to support this location as the other review isn't great. The good - VERY responsive owner (also immediately responded to all my questions via email), wonderful beach, pool, great fishing, doggies can come too, great amenities (beach items, outdoor shower, kitchen gear, towels, etc). The not-so-good - no wifi (we were able to "borrow" a neighbors wifi), no cell service for our Verizon or Sprint phones (this was really disappointing for my teen who couldn't text while we were there - which I secretly was TOTALLY fine with), no view from the room (but you know that going in) and lots of stairs, two sets in the unit. If you are looking for an affordable, family and pet orientated location (LOTS of dogs at the complex in general), this is your place! We searched for a place that would work for our family and our two dogs - this totally worked for us. Is it the Ritz? No. But, it is a comfortable, clean place when your focus is beach family time away from the crazy crowded locations otherwise found in FL.

Lovely rental in the heart of Barrier Dunes

  • 5 of 5
After reading a prior review, I just had to comment. We had a lovely time at the Seahorse in during the July 4th week of 2011. The place was decorated in a charming manner and was absolutely spotless. The kitchen was stocked and had everything we needed, including spices and such. The laundry had soap and there was plenty of cleaning supplies to borrow. Fresh linens and lots of extra towels for the beach. I never found the dog towels mentioned but we brought our own so no worries. There really isn't a "view" here but it is right in the center of the complex so you can walk to the pools, tennis or beach in all directions quickly. My youngest enjoyed riding his bike around the complex and my tween hanging out at the volley ball net on the beach. Our dog LOVED it, and as we lost her to kidney disease in December, we were so glad ot have found a welcoming place to bring her that allowed her on the beach and in the rental. The owner was very easy to deal with, and patient with my 1000 questions. This is a very nice place to rent.
