"Beautiful and Fun"
"The property was very clean and there was no dog odor. The downstairs has been redone and is lovely. New furniture upstairs. Only concern was the bedroom mattresses. Seemed as if it is time to get a set for both rooms. Too soft, maybe worn, and did not give much support. But the redo is a work in progress so we won't complain. In fact we added a day to our stay. Thanks Proctors. Your neighbors from Tennessee came down and did some landscaping in front." — Harry Martinez Jul 11, 2019
"Saltwater Joys was just that; A real JOY!"
"The unit was very clean. Comfortable sitting area. Appliances all in good working order. The unit is at the back of the property so you don't see the ocean and next to the road. But, no road noise whatsoever. Very quiet. It is an end unit but we didn't hear any noise or talking from the neighboring unit. The only glitch we had was the upstairs air conditioning quit working one evening but the next day we called and within a couple of hours it was back up and running. We would definitely come back!

"The area was great and of course the beach was lovely"
"I would not rent this property again. The furniture was crumbling and uncomfortable. Kitchen equipment was inadequate. No mixer, pots and pans the cheapest available. The broom was a joke. Carpeting was dirty and stained. I had to buy a set of sheets because the ones provided wouldn’t stay on the bed. I loved the complex but this condo really needs to be upgraded" — Mary Wright Jan 16, 2019
"Beautiful, powdery white sand beaches that weren’t crowded even during the week of 4th of July. Large 2 bedroom with plenty of space and privacy, living room furniture could use an update. Pet friendly beaches, townhouse and complex. Townhouse is at the back of the complex so the walk to the beach was 5-10mins." — Carrie Galvin Jun 30, 2018
"Everything went great 😎" — Aaron Batson Jun 28, 2018
"A very nice surprise and a perfect place to stay at the beach!"
"The townhome is spacious and nicely decorated - more of a homey touch rather than the beach theme. This home is one of three in this unit and is on the end. The master bedroom is on the back of the unit, with a balcony, facing trees and the state park. It is very private. The other bedroom faces the front, with a balcony, overlooking the small playground which serves as a barrier between the units across the street. There is a side yard with thick green grass and trees separating it from the other unit. There is a full size washer and dryer and an ice maker in the refrigerator. You cannot hear your neighbors through the walls. The community is well maintained. There is green grass and shrubbery throughout, not just sand. The walkways between the units are stone. Kids ride bikes in the neighborhood. It is a very friendly atmosphere. The beach was clean. The ocean was clean - no seaweed. I felt very safe and at home here and would definitely stay here again!" — Claudia Slayton Jun 24, 2018
"We enjoyed staying at The Escape Hatch. Location was nice near the playgrounds. The home was decorated nicely. The beds were comfortable! Master shower little small. Few items to update: Garbage disposal leaks and does not work. Living room couches need updating (the slip covers are not attractive). Outside bugs were pretty bad, made it difficult to enjoy grilling on the porch (suggestion, have pest company spray regularly). Plastic Adirondack chairs need to be updated. Other than those minor issues, the place was fabulous!" — jil powell Jun 14, 2018
"It was a very spacious place to stay on vacation." — Kelly Daniel Apr 04, 2018
"Great place for spring break. Had a blast in Cape San Blas and enjoyed this unit."
"We had a great time here. Everything you need is here. We will be back in the summer!! Barrier Dunes is a nice community." — Jonathan Pack Mar 24, 2018
"We did not stay here because of the bugs in the kitchen, We were moved to another unit which was quite nice. Thanks to Stefanie everything was fine." — Joe Woods Oct 30, 2017
"We really enjoyed our stay. This was the perfect place for our anniversary trip. Quiet area. Off the beaten path. Close access to public beach. The house was as described....very nice and comfortable. Not many entertainment options (go carts, putt putt, etc), but that wasn't something we even wanted....that helped keep our stay quiet and low-key. It was really nice to have beach chairs to take with us.....thanks for providing those! Would love to stay again sometime soon!" — Rick Williams Jun 15, 2017
"Neat, clean and uncluttered."
"An invigorating stroll to the beach through the beauty of Barrier Dunes! Condo was well equipped and very pleasant! Always mini roaches on the kitchen counter near the toaster. Thus my Daughter would not use the toaster as she is sensitive about these things!" — Anonymous Jun 05, 2017
"Loved the house and the neighborhood. Hope to come down for another visit soon!" — Michael Peacock Jun 01, 2017
"Great place to stay while at the Cape"
"Great place to stay while at the Cape. One suggestion - buy a steam/strainer for cooking veggies - besides that the unit is just perfect. I will rent again sometime soon :)" — Robert Tad McCampbell May 26, 2017

"Perfect spot at the Cape. Wonderful beach. Dog friendly location. Will definitely rent this condo again!" — Lisa Ruff Dec 25, 2016
"My husband and I needed a small place to stay for just a long weekend, and Escape Hatch was just perfect for us. By no means small, it was nicely furnished, well equipped, very clean and exactly what we were looking for. Debbe and Stephanie were a pleasure to deal with, very responsive and helpful. We will absolutely stay there again." — Sheila Richardson Nov 16, 2016
"It was very clean/comfortable"
"The beds were amazingly comfortable and liked the lay out is the house. It was simple yet relaxing. Appreciated having beach chairs/umbrella we could use in beach.
Only downside was we ran out of toilet paper." — Christine Winski Apr 02, 2016
"Great place to call home for a few days!"
"Nice homie feel and kept in good, clean condition. Property manager was extremely nice to work with and very relaxed. Even let us in early!" — Alex Updegrove Sep 05, 2015
"This was our second time to Cape San Blas but our first at the Escape Hatch. We loved it here! We have two small children ages 5 and 1 and it was the perfect size. The condo was well stocked and was very clean. Working with Cindy was so easy and she was so responsive. The walk to the beach and pool was also not too bad. We loved the fact that there was a playground right in front of the condo for our oldest to play while we were packing up the car or the wagon. Thanks so much for helping make our stay relaxing and enjoyable!" — Shin Kim Jul 30, 2015
"Great Place in Paradise"
"This place was great. It was in the Barrier Dunes complex on Cape San Blas. The complex was very well taken care of and had multiple pools with easy access to the beach. The condo was well equipped. The furnishings were nice. The condo was very comfortable for my wife and four children. The condo was spacious and offered all that we needed in addition to a balcony and a grill. The only reason I give this four rather than five stars was due to the spots on the carpet throughout the main area. The condo is dog friendly and I am guessing this was the culprit! I highly recommend this condo. " — Joshua Long Apr 02, 2015
"Nice place, nice area, nice service."
"We had to schedule on short notice and it was easy. Everything was as described. The townhouse is comfortable and nicely appointed. The complex is attractive and clean. The complex is also good for kids including riding around on bikes, walking to the pools and playground. Although we didn't use them, the tennis courts looked to be in excellent condition. The fish ponds were full of life though mostly turtles! The state park and bike path are very easily accessible from this location. We had a great time." — Eric Rassel Jun 14, 2014
"Relaxing place to stay"
"This is our second year to enjoy the tranquil serenity of the Escape Hatch.
It was a fun neighborhood with a group of Snowbirds, close enough to the beach and pool and to the surrounding activities that we could do something new each day! The cottage was very well stocked, clean and very cozy. Kitchen and laundry were fully functional. Working with Cindy and Debbe was a pleasure. The area was very dog friendly and our dog, Tammy enjoyed every day her walk on the beach. We will be back next year. Can’t wait!!!
" — Suzanne and Tom Cummings Dec 21, 2013
"A Wonderful Escape!"
"My family had an absolute wonderful time at Escape Hatch! The townhouse was very roomy and clean. An easy walk to the beach, which was where we spent most of the time. Can't wait to go back! Thanks to Debbe and Cindy for being so easy to work with!" — Karen Purves Jul 13, 2013
"Great condo for our family vacation! Will definitely try to rent again!" — Daphney Faulkner Jun 29, 2013
"Great weekend at Cape San Blas"
"Escape hatch is a lovely property and the photographs do not do justice to the how comfortable it is! Cindi was very responsive to our requests. I look forward to coming back for a longer stay..." — Arun Iyer May 25, 2013
"We enjoyed our stay at Escape Hatch, the unit is clean, bright and in a lovely location for peace and quiet, has two pools, a tennis court and just a few minutes walk to the beach. The land lady was very helpful, especially when we needed emergency medical attention. Our only concern is that the dishes were of poor quality (plastic) and the site is isolated, needing a 1/2 hour drive for groceries etc. However, we would recommend staying at this location for many reasons. " — James Paterson Feb 28, 2013
