"Love this location!"

"This was our second time at Barrier Dunes, first time time in Calico Crab. We really enjoyed our stay. The beach chairs and short walk to the beach & pool, combined with a fully outfitted kitchen and comfy, homey living/dining room, plus great beds make this a perfect little getaway spot for us and our dog Lucy, who loved the tile floors after a hot morning at the beach! Thank you." — Lindy Settevendemie Jun 28, 2019

"Great place to get away"

"Property was very well kept and clean. Neighborhood was quiet. Fortunately, it appears to be recovering from Hurricane Michael well, although they still have a way to go.

Overall, we were very impressed with the location and the unit we stayed in" — Jason White May 24, 2019

"Absolutely wonderful!"

"I can't say enough about how cute and comfortable the Calico Crab was. The decor was fabulous as well as the furnishings. This was our third time at Barrier Dunes and the Calico Crab was by far the nicest unit we have stayed in. Our dog enjoyed her first time at the beach and had a blast! Thanks so much for sharing your awesome home with us!" — Alexis Bullard Aug 01, 2018

"Perfect Beach Getaway!"

"Came in for a last minute beach trip. Everything was better than expected. Location was perfect with minor traffic in the complex. Unit was better than expected. The pictures do no justice for the condo. It’s much larger and has enough space for several adults. Unit was clean and the back porch is perfect for morning or evening sits. Beach is only an easy 5 min walk and both pools are even closer. Parking is a bit tight but there is an overflow area. Overall a great time." — James Ingram Jul 22, 2018

"Great property!"

"Our family enjoyed our stay immensely!" — diane gilliam Jul 15, 2018

"A wonderful, clean house in a very nice location"

"My family loved our stay! The house was very clean, decorated nicely, and felt like home. Everything was in working order, and it didn't feel like a high-traffic beach rental like other places we've stayed in the past.
The house is a short walk from the beach and in a fantastic location to use as a launching point for exploring Cape San Blas and St. Joseph Peninsula State Park.
I feel like we lucked out finding this house, and we look forward to coming back!" — Jordan Parker Jul 01, 2018

"Calico Crab, would do it again."

"Clean very interesting and cheerful décor.
Had everything at this location, pool, beach.
Everyone we met was friendly.
" — Audrey Caraway Jun 09, 2018

"Great condo!"

"Loved our stay at Calico! The condo had everything we needed and was very cozy. The screened in porch was an amazing spot to sit and drink morning coffee while watching turtles in the pond . Will stay here again if the opportunity arises." — Celeste Lawyer May 24, 2018

"It’s was very clean!"

"We enjoyed our experience at this condo! We cannot wait to return!" — Emily Matz May 28, 2018

"Good spot"

"Nice place. Good beds. Clean. Decent kitchen supplies but if you plan on washing or cleaning you will need to bring your own supplies." — David Nerbun Oct 06, 2017

"Wonderful stay"

"Our family has been visiting Cape San Blas for many years. The Calico Crab was our best rental at Barrier Dunes.
This property was well stocked and didn't make you feel like you were in a rental. Definitely gave you that "at home" feeling.
The Calico Crab will definitely be our choice for our future stays at CSB.
Thank you,
MaryLynn, Alan and Alyssa" — MaryLynn Meyer Jul 21, 2017

"Very nice property!"

"Loved the place. Very nice and spacious. Plenty of kitchen supplies if you choose to stay in. Plenty of linens and other household items you might need. Would definetly stay again!" — Brandy Swanson Jul 08, 2017

"Very cute!"

"I loved this little cottage. The beach access was a nice little walk. Not long at all. The decor was very beachy and the beds comfortable. Me and my sisters had a very nice weekend away here!" — Samantha VanAken Jun 16, 2017

"We lowed it."

"We definitely come back again." — Saadet L Alugan Jun 04, 2017

"Very Comfortable!"

"My friend and I had very nice stay at the Calico Crab. Everything was as stated -- maybe even better! I enjoyed the spacious master bedroom/bath. My friend was very comfortable in the guest bedroom/bath which was also nice. Beds were comfy. Flat screened TVs in living room and both bedrooms. The kitchen was very well equipped. Great coffee maker! We especially enjoyed our lunches on the screened in porch overlooking the lake. Weather was beautiful. Enjoyed walking on the beach. Great time of year to enjoy the beauty of Cape San Blas.

For fun, shopping and good food visit Apalachicola, Port St. Joe and Mexico Beach." — Lori Turner Oct 18, 2014

"Best Appointed Unit in Barrier Dunes"

"In the last two years we have rented six units in Barrier Dunes and this by far is the best appointed one. Although it is in the back of the development, it is only a short walk to the beach and main pool. The unit was furnished with everything you needed for your stay in Cape San Blas. The owners of the unit really care about your vacation experience and I would recommend this unit to anyone looking at lodging in Barrier Dunes." — Thomas Queen Sep 26, 2014

"A charming getaway perfect for a dog and a small family"

"Calico Crab was the perfect, affordable beach vacation for a family of 3 with a dog. The unit has everything you could need and is a quick walk thru the neighborhood to a beautiful, uncrowded, dog-friendly beach. I honestly think my dog had the most fun of everyone! I agree with another reviewer that the photos don't do the unit justice, it was clean and comfortable and bright. I would recommend bringing groceries with you if you like to cook and if you are a SERIOUS cook--bring your own knives. For most guests though, the kitchen amenities would be more than adequate. The marble countertop and oversize fridge was great. I'd love to come back and bring some friends next time." — Alicia Quirk Sep 11, 2014

"Nice place.!!"

"Very Nice condo was really clean. The only complaint is it is a drive to eat anywhere and not alot to do for kids on the Cape. " — Ronald Douglas Haines Jun 07, 2014

"Excellent vacation!!"

"My family and I had a WONDERFUL time on the Cape! The townhome was wonderful. On the nights that we stayed in and cooked, we had pots and pans for all of our needs!! The beach was absolutely beautiful. There were a few days that we stayed all day on the beach and watched the sunset for the day. We really enjoyed being able to bring our four legged baby with us to the beach. Kudos to Cindy....She was extremely helpful in answering all our questions before our trip. We are already looking forward to booking for next year!!!!" — Amy Haines Jun 07, 2014

"Great place"

"Beautifully decorated town house, very generously stocked with all needed kitchen necessities and very clean. We have been coming to Cape San Blas for the last 8 years. From all the houses we have rented, this was for sure the nicest one. Very fast security deposit return. Highly recommended." — Tomasz Orzechowski May 31, 2014

"Lovely condo!"

"We spent four days in this condo (with our two dogs) and absolutely fell in love with both the condo and the area. The porch overlooking a pond with a fountain is the next best thing to a sea view, and the charming decorating inside stole our hearts. The owners have taken meticulous care of this unit, which fosters the same care by its renters. We enjoyed walking the beach (just minutes away on foot), and the nearby cities of Port St. Joe and Apalachicola are great fun and offer fabulous restaurants. We did lots of biking as well--beautiful! We'll certainly be back." — Ann Marie Mershon Apr 01, 2014
