It was a nice property, close to the beach. Wasn't maintaned well- rusted spicket, no outdoor shower or hose. Pocket door was off upstairs, no ice machine.

We love the location and easy walk to the beach, so despite a few property issues, we enjoyed out stay.

Unique spot
We had never been to this part of Florida before and were intrigued with this area. The property was a short walk to a beautiful beach that was mostly uncrowded and a great place to take long walks on the beach. There were a couple good restaurants very close and everyone in the development was very friendly. The house has great views and a lot of space. It could use a good cleaning and some updates, but the kitchen was pretty well stocked (no toaster, but lots of pans dishes and utensils). The beds were comfortable. If you are there for a longer stay, you do need to take the basics, like toilet paper, paper towels, dishwasher soap and cleaning supplies.

Perfect weekend
The property was just a few steps away from the beach. The complex had great amenities. Great views from unit. Would definitely stay again.

Major updates needed
1. Major rusting of entry lock 2. Major rusting of kitchen faucet 3. Notable rusting in refrigerator, around faucet and in other areas of the kitchen. 4. Mold on Master Shower Curtain 5. Construction next door shook the condo for the first two days......no escaping the incredible pounding of he steel and cement columns. 6. Doorways to decks were rusted and dirty; 7. Master bedroom's sliding door lock broken

Beach was beautiful, condo was clean but the extensive rust and lack of concern for broken fixtures etc. would not make me want to return.

Barrier Dunes #161
Outstanding townhome! Nicely decorated and up to date; kitchen and bathrooms are well appointed and modern. Comfortable bed and fresh linens. Well stocked with kitchen tools, bakeware and dinnerware; made for an easy Thanksgiving dinner preparation. Steps from the beach and great views from balconies! Short bike ride to the state park.

Great place, nice neighborhood
Clean, comfortable place. Very friendly neighbors. A few steps away from the beach. Nice tennis courts and the solar heated pool (walking distance) was a very pleasant surprise. My kids loved it! Don’t forget your essentials (laundry detergent, dish detergent, salt, shampoo).

Barrier Dunes 161 was wonderful
My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary week and couldn't have asked for a more relaxing location. The beach is a short walk away in the beautiful landscaping.

Mayberry on the beach
I should probably be one of those people who says everything needs updating blah blah blah. Just to keep anyone from wanting to stay here. But the truth is our stay was awesome. I got stung by a stingray on the next to last day there. But I would endure that again to be able to stay another week. Just an excellent vacation.

Annual Family/Friends vacation
Every year a huge group of family’s come to this area. We all rent our own units so have seen lots of units. This one is by far the best location to the beach! It was very clean. Hopefully they take my feed back and get a can opener. And other than that just plan on bringing all the extra stuff (TP, paper towels, baggies, foil, dishwasher and washing machine soap, trash bags) that’s all very standard with all the units. But with our stay we had to go buy dish soap and hand soap. That’s not common. However I do highly recommend this unit lots of beds for bigger groups.

We will definitely stay here again if possible. The great thing about the unit is that the decks & sliding glass doors face more south than west. The decks are mostly shaded all day & the sun never gets on the glass so the interiors stay more comfortable. Good beach view from the upper deck, or sit on the raised chairs on the lower deck. You can even see the Gulf from the kitchen, a definite plus!

Example: "Is the balcony screened in?" or "Is there a toaster oven?"

Are the pools heated?
Anonymous U - Posted: 08/09/2022

Answer:

Neither pool do we advertise as heated.  That being said we have been told by the HOA that the smaller pool next to the tennis courts is solar heated.  Again we don't advertise them as heated.

Can you tell me the distance to pools from the rental please??
Anonymous U - Posted: 08/20/2022

Answer:

This Barrier Dunes unit is on Sandpine Dr and depending on the route you take its roughly a 1-2 minute walk to the Gulf Front community pool; it would be slightly longer to get to the second community pool in the complex.
