Seaside Cottage at the Cape
We discovered this charming unique beach cottage in “Barrier Dunes” community on Cape San Blas and fell in love with it. We spent 4 months in the lovely fully equipped Home which is just a short walk to the white sand beach or either of the 2 swimming pools and tennis court. The state park is easy to acces by car or walking about 1 mile.
A Beautifully Kept Gem
The Morrison's Seaside Cottage at Barrier Dunes is peaceful, obviously professionally decorated, and well equipped for a perfect vacation stay at CSB. The home is clean as can be and has the most calming effect as soon as you walk in from the front porch. The cottage has a back porch (on a large turtle pond) with a nice table & chairs to enjoy in the mornings. Beds have nice linens the bathrooms are equally suitable. The washer & dryer are convenient and modern. The walk to the ocean is short and pleasant. There are plenty of chairs around both pools and a nice tennis court as well. Evening walks are enjoyable. Sunsets are beyond beautiful. The kitchen has more equipment than I ever could use and I actually enjoyed the cooking while at the cottage. Thank you to the Morrison's for knowing and providing exactly what it takes to have a great stay with no worries. How do they ever leave when they come here?!?!
Seaside Cottage
Our beach vacation was rather short notice, and I was concerned that we wouldn't be able to find a suitable place to stay. With the Morrisons' Seaside Cottage that concern was unnecessary. It is perfect for our family of 4, and it has a wonderfully equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, and beautiful decor. It was a wonderful, relaxing week for our family! Jan is a super hostess and is easy to book with. We would definitely stay here again!
I would DEFINITELY stay here again!
Finally getting around to posting what a WONDERFUL time we had renting the #2140 in Barrier Dunes! We stayed in June. This cottage is located 121 Parkside Circle Port Saint Joe on the Cape right next to the state park. (You can google the address and see lots of pictures on zillow because it was for sale when we rented.) The owner, Janet Morrison, was so very nice. She gave me her personal cell phone number. When I called her a couple of nights before our visit, she said that she had been staying in the cottage doing a little "fixing up" and told me she would be leaving us alot of her leftover groceries....fresh fruit, snacks, icecream bars....Before we stayed at this particular cottage, I had always insisted to my husband on staying where I could see the beach from my room. We knew this cottage was not going to be ON the beach but with us making such a late reservation, we took what we could get. And let me tell you, I WOULD stay here again! The cottage has so much room and character. (Google for pix.) The 3rd BR in the "crow's nest" was a big hit with our younger daughter! The cottage has everything you could need, including W/D, big and small appliances, pots and pans, and loads of spices! You really only need to bring your clothes and a few groceries! The back deck faces a pond. My girls had so much fun feeding the turtles every evening. (Usually 30-40 would swim toward our deck when feeding!). Mrs. Janet also left boogie boards and floats too. And there was an outside grill too. Barrier Dunes turned out to be JUST RIGHT for us! The "neighborhood" is gated and feels very safe. The walk to the pools and to the beach is not long at all. And there is a sidewalk/boardwalk all the way to the beach from inside the neighborhood. I was sad when I learned that she and her husband are trying to sell their cottage, but am hopeful that the new owner will be as nice Mrs. Janet. This sweet cottage will NOT disappoint!
