We had a wonderful week. I don't believe I've ever stayed in a condo that was as well equipped as yours!
Andreas & Laura Harth: Excerpt from the Dachshund Diary April/May 2007
Dear Miss Wendy,
I wanted to thank you for making my "mommy" and :daddy" so happy during their stay at Turtle Crawl. I don't know what you did, but they didn't stop smiling and grinning the entire week! I was pretty happy too, since usually I get left behind for all the good trips. They took me to the beach every day! The sun shined EVERY DAY! And they brought my leash, but they actually let me run without it for what seemed like miles! Aren't they great??!!
I saw dolphin from our deck, Miss Wendy-right off the beach in front of Turtle Crawl! Mommy saw them too and she rand and got pictures. I think she's sending one to you. That's nothing though, I chased a crab-ok, I ran from a crab--and saw different types of marine life every day. I also got some of the finest seafood leftovers, freshly caught scallops, crab, shrimp and oysters from local restaurants. Mommy and daddy got takeout from Loggerhead Grill to eat on our own deck because Turtle Crawl was too great to leave behind--they said we didn't need a restaurant! I even got to go to Steamer in Apalachicola and eat on the patio overlooking a harbor with mom and dad. AND we had a bonfire on the beach at sunset one night--we had the coast to ourselves!
We met lots of nice people at the beach with their pets. Everyone was so friendly, many were fishing off the beach and getting a lot of action and everyone was offering advice on where to eat, what to do, etc. WE already knew most of what Cape San Blas had to offer because of your website and all the research and brochures in the guest book. (can a dog sound cheesy? I am not trying to be, but we were just all sooo happy!)
I think we felt spoiled by the end of the week. The provisions, the attention to details like the private shower - I relaxed after realizing the water was warm -- and the well equipped kitchen, the ability to step out the door and walk a few steps to the beach...It was nice to lay on the blanket on the master deck at Turtle Crawl while mommy and daddy took pictures of the sunset, and to join them every day for long walks and hanging out seaside. Thanks again for everything!!! WE will be back! Also enclosed are a few pictures, you can see me next to daddy at the bonfire.
Love and thanks for giving us lots of "new favorites",
"Bennie", Laura and Andreas

Wow! What can I say? We had the best time ever! Beach House Too was so much nicer than we expected. It is probably the nicest condo we have ever been in. It had such a homey feel to it and we had everything we needed.
The first full day we were there it rained all day but we didn't let that deter us. We packed up our beach stuff on the cart and spent the whole afternoon on the beach in the rain. We were determined to enjoy our time at Cape San Blas! The dogs enjoyed themselves running up and down the beach. Ethel actually jumped in the water to retrieve toys a couple of times, but our other dog, Smitty, stayed put on the sand. The next day was beautiful and we spent the whole day out of n the beach!
I want to thank you for having a place that allows dogs and their owners to vacation together. It is very hard to find a vacation spot that does that. Our trip to Cape San Blas was a perfect way to roll our Spring Break and 2nd wedding anniversary celebration into one fun-filled trip. We are definitely planning to come again and this time stay longer! Thanks for everything.

Are you a snowbird looking for the ultimate escape from the long northern winter?? Well iI think I have just the place. Two years ago my husband and I stumbled onto a thin strip of land along the gulf coast called Cape San Blas. We drove along the Cape marveling at the beauty of the white sandy beaches, the incredible fauna of old world Florida, the birds and the deep blue ocean.
At the far end of the Cape, right before you head into St. Joseph Peninsula State Park, we turned left and drove into what is fast becoming our second home, Barrier Dunes. This wonderful community sits nestled up to sugar white dunes that lead you down to the pristine beach where any day you may see maybe 10 other people out enjoying strolling for miles, fishing in the surf, collecting shells or simply sitting and reading along with their dog! Yes! The Cape San Blas Beaches and Barrier Dunes are dog friendly--our dogs can enjoy the beach with us instead of just a pet friendly rental!
We stayed in The Cape Escape II, owned by Wendy Jackson, who made sure we had everything we might need already in place before we arrived. Entering Cape San Blas and Barrier Dunes is like entering another world, a world that slows and fills you with peace as you slowly enjoy the every day marvels: The dancing dolphins just a few feet away, the spectacular sunsets, the eagle soaring overhead. If you enjoy nature and the simple pleasures in life, this is the place for you!
Barrier Dunes also has the added advantage of having a great community spirit. The folks are friendly and there's often a community event, a book exchange or a Super Bowl party to attend or perhaps a comminity potluck beach bonfire. Unlike the hustle and bustle of the big tourist traps, this is a place to really unwind and enjoy life. If you choose to not meander down to the beach there are stocked fishing ponds, tennis courts and 2 swimming pools inside the gated community to keep you busy, plus, if you like to work out there is evens an aerobics and strength class three times a week to help you keep in shape!
If this sounds like a perfect place to spend your winter holiday, give Wendy a call or email and I'll look forward to meeting you there this fall and winter!
