    Gerald R from Old Hickory, TN recommends this vacation rental

    We had an overall great experience, the only drawback was that the sleeper sofa was caved in and had a piece of plywood beneath the cushions to support them. Since my wife has a broken leg at the moment, that was a very uncomfortable place for her during the day but was the only location long enough for her to sit up and keep the leg elevated other than in the bed. There was sand in the bed between the sheets in the double bed when we checked in.

    Josh K from Killeen, TX recommends this vacation rental

    Communication between the management company, the owner and myself were always very prompt and in depth. The townhome was perfect for our stay. It is in a great location at Barrier Dunes. There is a short walk to the beach entrance. Very short. They provided a few chairs and a few beach toys that we didn’t really need or use, but it is a great gesture and we may have brought less stuff if we knew about it.

    The kitchen is small, but has a dishwasher, stove, oven and microwave. It had everything we needed to make our own food each night.

    I would recommend this place to anyone that is looking to stay in Barrier Dunes due to the location and ease of access to the beach.

    Jackie L from Stone Mountain, Georgia recommends this vacation rental

    I rented this unit for my son & his family. My sister & I rented a house about 10 min. from here & most of their time was spent with us at our location. I visited them & the unit was a little smaller than I thought it would be. Overall they enjoyed their stay but upon checking out, there were several issues reported to the office. There apparently were no garbage cans to place the garbage in; they had thought about using the sofa bed but when they opened it he said it had a lot of sand in it so they did not use the sofa bed and one of the tubs was clogged. These issues were not reported during their stay due to them not spending a lot of time there. I'm sure they could have been resolved if reported. I'm writing this just to let you know if it was not noted upon checking out. Thank you.

    Karen H from Ball Ground, GA does not recommend this vacation rental.

    We've stayed here for the past 3 years. It needs some major work. There are rugs covering up carpet holes with carpet tacks sticking up. You have to wear shoes in the condo to keep from stepping on them. The owner parks his boat in the driveway limiting to you to just one vehicle. Parking is hard to find if you have more than 1 vehicle. This stay was for 2 weeks. The dishwasher broke and it took 5 days to get a new one.

    The unit has a wonderful view. we were grateful to be allowed to bring our two dogs. Coastal Joe was very easy to book through, check in and out process was good. No problems with anything in the unit. However, the unit has a lot of personal items that need a good cleaning. An umbrella, some sand chairs, bikes, kayaks paddle boards or other items for renters to use would be nice.

    Ann M from Hampton, FL does not recommend this vacation rental.

    We recently stayed at the Dawg House for our week long vacation. There are some definite positives and negatives about this property. The kitchen had everything I needed for cooking large meals and the refrigerator was clean and empty on our arrival. The location of the property in Barrier Dunes is good. It's close to both pools and the beach with a small view of the beach as well. Those are the positives. The biggest negative of our stay was the bed. It was a very lumpy old mattress and not comfortable at all. It should be replaced. The owner has a LOT of personal belongings in the unit which made it feel very cluttered. The kitchen and dining area are very small and it was difficult to find any space to store my groceries that I brought for the week. I ended up keeping them in bags in the spare bedroom. It would be my recommendation that the owner try to declutter the unit and try to free up some cabinet space for renters. This is a pet friendly unit and there was evidence that in the pet hair and pet odor. Coastal Joe Rentals was wonderful to deal with and very accommodating. I would rent through this agency again but would pick a different rental.

    Kimberly B from Pendergrass, GA recommends this vacation rental

    What a BEAUTIFUL location..
    Condo: It's an older unit and there are lots of the owners trinkets which would be an issue for little hands..but we didn't adds character. Perfect for a max of 4 adults without mobility issues..there are TONS of steps. The property has more of a neighborhood feel than a resort and we never gave a second thought to leaving our bikes and canoe in the covered carport and chairs on the beach all week. For a 30 year old has been maintained very well!!
    St. Joseph Peninsula State Park..Look this up before you arrive..get the $6 Wilderness pass and take the long hot hike over the dunes to the 's worth the walk!! Lot's of hiking trails and a great place to explore in our canoe. No pets on the dunes or beaches..leave them at the condo..not in your car!!!
    Coneheads for good burgers and sandwiches..a couple of small convenience stores..otherwise you will take a 30 min. drive to go out to eat or for groceries. We drove to Apalachicola for dinner which was a fun night out. Otherwise we ate at the condo. Bring your bikes..there is an 8 mile bike path on the main road.
    The Beach and water were gorgeous while we were there. Clean white sand and sunsets that are like a light show choreographed by God!! We fished in the bay with our Canoe...we will go back with our new fishing Kayaks the next 's gorgeous too! Loved the millions of Fiddler crabs when the tide went out in the bay!
    What a blessing to have found this area...we loved it!!

    Coastal Joe's moved us to Seacliff's Bldg. A. unit 3 at no extra cost to us. It was a nearly identical unit to the Dawg house butl was clean and did not smell strongly of dogs. The folks at Coastal Joe's were completly professional and did everything thdy could to help us. I would recommend them; without reservation, to anyone vacationing on the Gulf coast.

    This was our first time staying at Barrier Dunes and we enjoyed it. The beaches were beautiful. Gorgeous views from the living room and master bedroom balcony's. Just a short walk to the beach. Not crowded at all. Just a short ride to the park and grocery store (Trading Post). We didn't look forward to leaving, but we were already looking forward to coming back.

    Cathryn S from Bowdon, GA does not recommend this vacation rental.

    When we opened the door, we were overwhelmed by the smell of disinfectant and dog. There were NO instructions for the TV, the DVD player was NOT even set up and the master bed was lumpy and had a BIG hump in the middle of it. We left 2 messages with Coastal Joe on our first night,Saturday, and got NO response. In the meantime, a resident, Debbie, helped me with instructions for the TV. When I phoned on Monday (Memorial Day)and finally spoke to someone and after I explained our issue(s), within 1 1/2 hours we had someone over to 'fix' and set-up the DVD. We liked the location but felt, for what we paid and had to endure (loss of sleep and a 4 year old without TV or DVD entertainment for 2 days), we will not recommend nor return to this property.

    This was our 2nd trip to Cape San Blas for our family vacation and once again we LOVED it! Barrier Dunes is a great family oriented place to stay and the Dawg House did not disappoint! Very convenient to the beach and had everything we needed. The only complaint I had, if you even consider this a complaint, is that there were A LOT of the owner's trinkets and breakable items sitting around and with a 5 year old, it made me kind of nervous we were going to have an accident. But all was good. If your family is considering Cape San Blas for a relaxing vacation, in a safe family setting, this is your place!

    steps involved. She was not able to go in and out alot so the view was at least good for her. The talbe chairs were ot very sturdy and felt like they were going to break at any given time. THe cleaning crew needs to do a better job as they are being paid but the unit was extremely dusty, nice decor however, dusty. The grill shorted out and tripped a breaker that had to be fixed and a new grill delivered, The dryer had to have a service call to it that took a while therefore laundry was a issue. I know this may seem like a lot but overall it was a perfect place to stay. Will be back to Cape San Blas.

    a guest from Gainesville, GA recommends this vacation rental

    The overall stay was great! Our labs loved the beach and had a wonderful time. We were surprised at how few area amenities such as restaraunts and grocery stores. We had to go into Port St. Joe several times during the week. But we do realize that the beauty of the area is the lack of busy shops and stores lining the streets. That was what we didn't want. I feel that one good grocery store like in Port St. Joe would be a big asset to the area as well as a couple of restaurants.
    As for the condition of the unit, the kitchen chairs in particular needed work. The legs were very loose on most. The grill did not work, or at least we didn't get an opportunity to try it because it kept flipping the breakers when it was plugged in. The dryer had problems and we had a service person out to look at it who said it was fine but nothing had changed. So some serious service work should be done before the next guest comes in.

    I gave a good rating on everything because the whole family really enjoyed the week and for 3 teens to enjoy an area without the "miracle stip shops" was quite an accomplishment!

    a guest from Cumming, GA recommends this vacation rental

    This was our 4th year at Barrier Dunes and our 5th unit that we have stayed in. We had rented a weeks stay from another company and had such a great vacation that we wanted to stay a couple of extra days. Suzy was so helpful in finding us a place to stay for those extra 2 days that would accomodate our family of 4. The unit was fine, location great, but we probably would not stay in this unit again because there were so many personal belongings from the owner that we felt like we were intruding and didn't have much space for our own items. The kitchen is very small and there isn't a table to accomodate 4 people, we had to split up at the breakfast bar and table for 2. The unit was fairly clean, but the sinks in the master bath could have been cleaner...the mirror and toothbrush holder had toothpaste spatter on them. And, the living room sofas smelled of dog. It worked out for us for the short stay, but it would have been hard to manage for a whole week. We did have a wonderful experience with Coastal Joe and would definitely rent from them again, we'd just choose a different unit. Thanks for your help in allowing us to stay another 2 days...we ended up finding 120 scallops in the bay and had a feast!

    This townhouse has a great location! Close to beach, pool and tennis court. However the towels were very low quality and there were not enough provided. The sliding door to the downstairs bedroom had a broken lock, and the fan was off balance and too loose to run which was a diappointment. The pots and pans were in average condition. Also, be sure to stock up on groceries before you arrive, there are no real grocery stores, but a few places to eat and buy great seafood. I would return again - relaxing, very dog friendly beach.
