Enjoy great views from either side of the home! 

You will find it well-stocked and well-maintained & ready for you & your family to come enjoy a relaxing beach vacation on Cape San Blas! Pristine white sand beaches. The last of the 'old Florida' beaches. No crowds!  

You'll love the white quartz sand that doesn't burn your feet, the sand dunes that give the setting character, & the gentle gulf waves. The fishing is great, the crabbing fun & the activities abound from boating, hiking, beach bonfires, spectacular sunsets (our beaches faces west), horseback riding on the beach and tennis to impromptu socials.

All of life becomes casual & fun once you breathe the glorious salt air & let go of what you left behind. Try it & you'll be coming back regularly like most of our guests (see our guestbook on our website.

Barrier Dunes, our gated community, has 2 pools (1 is beachfront & 1 heated), lighted tennis courts, 3 fresh water fishing ponds, playground and pet stations throughout. Enjoy the quiet, unspoiled, dog-friendly beaches of the Florida Panhandle! 

Nestled up to the state park and surrounded by water, it is the perfect place for a nature lovers explorations. Boating, restaurants & other diversions are only minutes away, yet many of our guests never leave Barrier Dunes. 

Play tennis, swim in the pools, sunbath on the beach while watching the ever-changing scenes, fish, crab, stir up a card game or read till your hearts content. 

Pet lovers are overjoyed at being able to bring along fido, especially those who like to make an extended stay with us.

We know what it is like not to have what you need when you're on vacation! We try and provide as many of these extras a possible so you are focused on your vacation, family and fun and not on the basics! We encourage you to catch your own dinner of scallops, crabs or fish and bring along some marshmallows and enjoy s'mores around the beach bonfire or roast hot dogs for dinner! 

Our goal is to make your stay as relaxing as it can be from beginning to end!. To make room for the pooch in your car, we provide every basic essential we can think of (see details on my personal website www.TheCapeEscapecom AMENITIES page), but we don't stop there. Imagine a kitchen that is stocked w/spices, crock pot, & crab pot. Picture yourself not having to pack the car with beach chairs, the boogie board, & beach toys. If you're bringing a younger beachgoer...No need to pack the pack and play or high chair! Enjoy a grill on the gulf view deck.   We also provide a guest information book with area information, things to do, restaurants and more!

Don't forget your dog(s)...Cape San Blas beaches are pet-friendly & so are all of our rentals!  Large dogs are not a problem! 

Don't wait to reserve: we offer 5 gulf view vacation rentals and 7 other Barrier Dunes rentals, all in Barrier Dunes on Cape San Blas!

We had a GREAT time and didn’t want to come back home.
We had a GREAT time and didn’t want to come back home. The condo was perfect and the beach was beautiful and relaxing.  We met a man who taught us about salt water fishing and even gave us a rod and reel.  We had good seafood at the Indian Pass Raw Bar and then again at Papa Joe’s Oyster Bar in Apalachicola.
We can’t wait to come back again!   Thank you! 
We absolutely loved it. Wendy! You will be hearing from us again but for a longer stay. Thank you for all the great info and communicating so well.   It meant a lot to us.
The condo was great!
Happy Labor Day! We have returned home from Cape San Blas & are all extremely sad our mini vacation is over.  We LOVED it!  The condo was great & had all the amenities we needed.  Thank you so much for everything!  We will  definitely be back again soon.  I’ve already recommended my Mom & sister call you for their next beach trip!  I couldn’t say enough great things about the location & the complex.

Great Amenities.
Thank you for a great experience.  We really enjoyed our stay there.  I really like how you have everything, or almost everything, to make a stay easy and welcoming.  All the beach toys, towels, soap (laundry and dish soap), it was nice not having to bring everything.  

Anyway, thanks again.  This is one of the few places I am really considering coming back to.
Great time! We'll be back soon!

Wendy, We had a great visit to Barrier Dunes and Turtle Tracks.  Thanks for setting it up.  We will be back soon.
Awesome vacation! Wendy was a Joy to deal with!
We did have an awesome trip and you were a joy to deal with.. Thanks for everything and we will definitely be in touch.
Nothing Extra was needed -- everything was perfect in Turtle Tracks. We'll be back!
I met a friend at Barrier Dunes, Turtle Tracks for a mini vacation and I cannot say how pleased we both were with what was offered to us.  

I am used to packing in a crate all needed supplies, Dish soap, Laundry soap, salt and pepper, and all other needed items to make a vacation condo home friendly.  With Turtle Track nothing extra was needed, I did not even take my crate out of the trunk.  I have been coming to Cape San Blas for 25 years and Wendy at Cape Escape has been the easiest agent to deal with and her condos are perfect for a mini or longer vacation.

The beach is perfect and of course, if you travel to Saint Joe’s State park the bay is just as enjoyable.  Thank you Cape Escape my friend, and family will be coming back in years to come!
Loved Turtle Tracks! We will be back!
Hi Wendy, we had a wonderful time. We loved Turtle Tracks....I am ready to go back now:)...I will contact you on our next visit your way! Thank you for all of your help [❤]
Loved it! Our new beach getaway spot!
My family loved the place and we had a great time! The Cape is our new getaway spot so we’ll be back soon. 
Amazing! Everything & Turtle Tracks & Cape San Blas was PERFECT!
Thank you Wendy. We LOVED it there! Perfect weather, perfect location and your place was amazing, thank you! 
If you will have, us we will be back!!! 
Beach Time!
Turtle Tracks Townhome was perfect! It had everything we needed to enjoy the week. A view of the ocean from the master bedroom upstairs. Not too far to walk to the beach. Our grandson enjoyed the pool. Our dog enjoyed the walks. We hope to return some day to enjoy it again.
Michael Didn't take the Cape's Beauty

CSB is beautiful! Despite the destruction from Michael, it is still beautiful. If you are wondering should you come to CSB right now, I say yes! I am so glad that we did. We were not hindered and were able to do everything that we planned to do on a beach vacation. We had a great time staying in Wendy's unit. The unit is everything described and then some. Check-in is easy, communication is superb, and her cleaning staff is a top notch team.
A perfect week on the Cape

Turtle Tracks is a little slice of heaven on Cape San Blas! The home is immaculate and has everything you need and more. It offers a nice view of the gulf which is just a few steps away. The best part was being able to bring our dog who got acclimated to her surroundings right away. The communication with Wendy was amazing as she responded immediately to all my questions and was willing to go above and beyond to make our stay in the home wonderful. The grounds are well-kept and the beach and gulf are just beautiful! This is our new "happy place" and we can't wait to go back again and again.
1st Time at Cape San Blas! Perfect!

My husband, daughter, and I just spent a week at Turtle Tracks. This was our first time going to the Cape. Wendy was incredible to work with and the communication was awesome! The home was beyond perfect, pristine, and comfortable. It had everything we needed and more!!! For those of you who think the Cape isn't ready for visitors, you are so wrong! The beach is perfect and the gulf is just beautiful. This was also the first time our "baby" (aka French Bulldog) went to the beach. It was challenging to find a pet-friendly home close to the beach and I am so thankful I found Cape Escape! This is definitely our new "home away from home" and can't wait to book next years vacation! Thank you Wendy for thinking of everything and for allowing us to stay in the home. We will treasure the memories we made at the Cape.
Great amenities! Very close to beach & St. Joseph Peninsula State Park!
Turtle Tracks is a great property that is located very close to the beach and the state park. There are plenty of beach chairs and other supplies to make your trip convenient! Wendy did a great job communicating with us!

This condo was in the perfect location from both the beach and pool. It was quiet and peaceful. The condo itself was well stocked and clean. There were beach chairs, toys, and a beach cart. We have stayed at Barrier Dunes annually for the past 10 years and Turtle Tracks was one of the best units we’ve stayed in. We will definitely be back!
Absolutely loved this pet friendly condo right on the beach

It was perfect for our vacation. We've been back twice. The dogs loved it and the community is charming. Highly recommended for a peaceful beach trip
Enjoyed every minute of our time at Cape San Blas!

My family and I stayed in Turtle Tracks for 3 nights and enjoyed every minute of it. The owner was quick to answer any questions we had and the home was very clean. It was a quick walk to the beach and pool, even with 4 children. This is our second time booking with Cape Escape vacation rentals and we will definitely book again.
Convenient to the beach & very clean with lots of accessories for the beach.

June 2020 My family of five had a wonderful stay in Cape San Blas at Turtle Tracks! The condo is at a very convenient location to the beach....and a short drive to the park, where we were able to enjoy some time on the bay with a pontoon rental! The condo was very clean, and had every accessory we needed to enjoy our stay! Thanks so much! We will be back next year!
Nothing more I could ask for!

Nice condo in a good location at a reasonable price run by a professional outfit. Nothing more to ask for. Bob
Cute & Clean with easy beach access.

 Turtle Tracks is very cute, clean, and provides everything you have at home! The complex is quiet and safe, easy beach access, beautiful beaches and water. Our four teen daughters loved it, we'll definitely be back!!
All the comforts of home. Quiet retreat in nature & beautiful ocean

We really enjoyed our stay at Turtle Tracks. The area was amazing between the quiet retreats in nature and the beautiful ocean. Everybody was so friendly. We happened to be staying at the same time as the property manager and she was so kind! It felt great to know we had a friend at the Cape. We brought our one-year-old daughter with us and it was so nice to have some of the comforts of home. Just about anything we needed was provided, including a high chair and pack n play. The only thing I wish I packed was a baby gate because of the stairs. Just a heads up for anyone coming with small children. We will definitely be back.
