Lovingly maintained. Beautifully restored. This is what I imagine "old Florida" to have been. My husband and I spent a memorable week here. He spent his boyhood (in the 1930s and 40s) in Port St. Joe and remembers this cottage being here then. It IS authentic and not just a replica of what would have been here then. The lagoon and the trees are a beautiful site. It is wonderful to fish off the pier. And, the beach is a short walk away. It will always stand out in my memory as one of our favorite rentals.

Just Perfect!

Wow! The best family vacation for us hands down! We are a family of 5.. our 3 kids are 2, 7, and 10. Each of them had the time of their life and we had a much needed vacation. The home is so comfortable and cozy. After a few days we felt like we lived there; a feat for our family! We would spend hours on the dock while our 2 yr old napped , fishing and kayaking with the girls. We caught so many crabs and had so much fun harvesting them for dinner. Thank you so much to Gogo and Ace for allowing us to experience Indian Pass the way is should be. We are ready to book it for life!

Best Yet!

  • 5 of 5
After spending one week in late March at Cloud 9, the conclusion was simple: this was our best family vacation yet! My wife and I previously visited the Indian Pass area last May and chose to revisit for Spring Break with our three children (ages 11, 7, and 4). We had plenty of room and the kids loved the Old Florida feel of the cottage. The owners were very pleasant to deal with as well--we hope to revisit the area and would likely stay at the Cloud 9 again if available.

The cottage is not only just a walk across the street to the beach but has a pier out on the bay. The first night there we baited the provided crab traps and caught 9 blue crabs with ease. The kitchen was well stocked with cookware, utensils, etc. and so we had no problem harvesting and consuming our catch.

The catch across the street, via surf fishing, was just as good. We caught Pompano as well as other species. The kids loved seeing the various species of fish, most of which were released. Some however did make it to the dinner table.

The beach was beautiful and many activities were just 20-30 minutes away. We played putt putt just on the other side of Apalach and visited St. George Island and the Park thereon. The beach at St. George was amazing. At one point i could look in either direction on an eight mile stretch of beach and see no other persons than my family. After this, we visited St. George Beach for a second day--and it was just the same--nearly all ours!

Port St. Joe, just twenty (20) minutes away also had lots to offer in the way of dining and obtaining necessities (groceries, beach gear, etc.). Apalach offered the same, maybe a few more restaurants, and additionally some old storefront arts/crafts/etc. type shopping.

My wife drove to panama city shopping one day while my seven year old son and I rented and pontoon and went fishing in the Port St. Joe Bay. We caught many large fish really easily. The girls did well in Panama City as well and scored a bunch of good deals (or so i hear).

Anyhow, don't hesitate to try Cloud 9. I rarely write reviews but just feel compelled because of the amazing time my family just spent there.

Thanks to Ace and Gogo for taking such good care of us!

Best regards,

Nature lovers paradise

  • 5 of 5
we loved our time at cloud 9. It's a sweet rustic cottage nestled among palms and live oaks. Nature abounds! We enjoyed watching the terns, ducks, pelicans and other bird life on the lagoon. One afternoon we saw an owl in the backyard and on another evening a florida bobcat! Magical!

Just across the street is access to a sugar-sand gulf beach for walking, beachcombing and swimming.

The owner was responsive & friendly re: any questions we had. All amenities & layout were accurately described.
I would definitely recommend this property and this part of the world to a friend!

Old-Florida Beach Cottage Heaven

  • 5 of 5
Our whole family LOVED Cloud 9. My boys, 8 and 6 ,wanted to live there forever. The crab traps and hammock did it for them, and we all enjoyed all of the adorable accessories, shells and other beachy things. It is old-Florida cottage heaven. We caught blue crabs, hermit crabs a mullet and a flounder in the crab traps. You can fish right off the dock, or use one of the kayaks for a relaxing cruise on the bay. Just a few steps across a 2-lane road and you are on a wide, uncrowded, pristine Gulf beach. Walk 1/2 mile or so down to the end of the beach and look across the pass to an island wildlife refuge. Go 1/4 mile in the other direction for live music and baked oysters at the Indian Pass Raw Bar. If exploring nature and complete relaxation is what your after, surrounded by Southern Living, cute cottage decor, you'll love this place.

Owner's Response: So glad you discovered the Forgotten Coast and enjoyed some of the fun activities & adventures Indian Pass has to offer! Next time you might enjoy taking the ferry to St Vincent's Wildlife Refuge. You can rent bikes or bring your own. And we also believe that Cloud 9 is the perfect beach cottage!!.Thanks Suzanne & family!

Relaxing and beautiful

  • 5 of 5
This is a very sweet house. It is beautifully restored and decorated, yet it still maintains it's "old florida" feel and atmosphere. We went kayaking right off the backyard and spotted dolphins, manatees and lots of oyster beds. Out the front door is the beach and the gulf - even built a bonfire on the beach at night. It's so relaxing and quiet! We enjoy every minute of it everytime we go! Perfect house. Perfect atmosphere. Awesome owners!

Activity and Interests

There is something for everyone whether your goal is to relax, read

a book, swim, sunbathe, golf, fishing or to strike out on an

adventure to discover the "Forgotten Coast". From Cloud Nine its' a

short walk (40 yds from driveway) to the beach. Catch a shuttle to explore the St. Vincent

Island Wildlife Sanctuary only three hundred yards off shore. Bird

watching, shell hunting or just relaxing on the beach are at your


Next you're off to St. Joseph Bay, Cape San Blas to ride

horseback on the beach, Money Bayou to spot a gator or find the

legendary lost treasure! Rumor has it that someone found a gold doubloon just a few years ago! Indian Pass is the kind of place kids (& adults never want to leave, especially when you throw in lost treasure waiting to be discovered! If you are an angler or just getting

started and want to test your skills, try surfcasting or Charter

Fishing with a local guide service in both fresh or salt water

locations. For Golf, the Port St. Joe Country Club welcomes guests

to their 18-hole course just a 10-minute drive from home.

When you hunger for some "wild" and fresh shrimp, oysters or fish

then it's a 1 minute drive to the historic "Indian Pass Raw Bar" on C-30A where live music is now featured most nights. It's casual & very kid friendly. It's also no more than

20 minutes to one of the many restaurants in Apalachicola or Port

St. Joe. We hope you will visit "Cloud Nine" to enjoy this unique

coastal experience.
