house rental amenities

The Turtle House is set among the heart pines, live oaks and palms of Indian Pass. "The Pass", as our area is commonly known, is a three mile by half mile peninsula of quiet, quaint, "Old Florida" ambiance surrounded by the Gulf of Mexico, St. Vincent island and Indian Lagoon. Those of us who live here consider ourselves fortunate to have made a home in such a special place. We love to share our bit of paradise with those who seek this same kind of relaxing lifestyle.

Neighbors make their daily rounds of visits by foot, bicycle or golf cart. Conversations revolve around the best catches of the day, hottest fishing spots, latest news on the nesting eagles and owls, and how many turtle nests this year will bring. This is a place to come for real relaxation and rejuvenation. It is a place to escape the haste and hassle of city life, even touristy beach town life. There are no beach bars or loud music, no crowded beaches, just the sound of the frogs chirping and waves crashing at night.

Indian Lagoon offers a different coastal experience as well. The Lagoon is famous for the delicious oysters that are so popular they seldom make it past the local market. It is a vital estuary for many species of local marine life. Life is never dull on The Lagoon. Dolphin make daily rounds and can be seen working cooperatively to catch a meal. Redfish, trout, blue crab and many more species make this a great fishing spot. Being surrounded by hundreds of acres of protected lands, (including St Vincent Island, the Buffer Preserve, and Apalachicola National Park, and their conservation programs ), means we have our share of wildlife on The Pass. Fox, bobcat and otter have been seen lately on our property. Wolf, coyote and bear occasionally pass through as well.Then there are the birds. This is an exciting birding area with several annual events that celebrate the diversity of both indigenous and migratory birds.

So come on down and prepare to relax; we are here to help you do just that. As on site owners, we are here with local knowledge and assistance. Many of our renters have become good friends and we look forward to shared experiences each year, memorialized over local shrimp and crab boils and a beer or two. You're invited. Please RSVP.

activities and attractions in Indian Pass Gulf Coast North

So you left the interstate traffic several hours ago, have driven through the Apalachicola State Forrest and down the scenic coastal highways, and have finally begun to relax as the road narrows to a two lane right beside the water. You have realized the last car you passed was miles ago as you turn at the Indian Pass Raw Bar onto Indian Pass Road.  It is at this moment that you realize you are entering another world,  Indian Pass.   

 This three mile peninsula feels a world apart from the rest of coast.  Even the locals from nearby towns of Port St Joe, Apalachicola and Panama City will testify to it’s unique beauty and appeal.  It is easy to understand why this is the place that the locals of past generations built their summer cottages. Some of these older homes still remain in the family and are the setting for wonderful family reunions. The secret was out even centuries ago when the Indians chose this area for it’s abundance of wildlife, marine life and natural resources.  Nearby St Vincent Island abounds with proof that many generations of peoples have always been captivated by “The Pass”  

 About a mile down the road, you spot Indian Pass Lagoon Retreat and the Turtle House. From the description, it must be the home with green trim and bronze turtles, on the left side of the driveway.  Several follks from the home on the right side of the driveway, the Club House, pause to wave hello.  As you turn into the driveway you notice the waters of Indian Pass Lagoon at the end of the drive.  Your first impulse may be to jump out of the car, grab your camera and catch a shot of the dolphin swimming by, or the Redfish just caught on the dock.  But, you calm yourself and decide to settle in first.  By now, your hosts, ourselves, Bob and Janna, have probably stopped by to welcome you and acquaint you with the house.  We have answered your initial questions about the area and you are eager to go exploring....but first, here come the neighbors to meet and welcome you.  There is talk of a fishing trip tomorrow; wherever they are biting...are you in?

  Now it’s off to the beach to get barefoot and feel that wonderful sand beneath your feet. Right now you decide to take the short walk of five to ten minutes to the beach, and stretch those car weary muscles. Tomorrow you may drive one half mile to the beach access road. Janna has already offered to transport you to and from the beach, but you decide to save that for another day. There are way too many miles of beach to comb today, so after a few hours of sun and surf, and a glorious sunset, its time to call it a day.  You already hear the fish calling.... The plan is to launch at Indian Pass Boat Ramp, one and one half miles away.  The morning's weather will help you decide to head up the coast toward Cape San Blas, or stay in Apalachicola Bay and near St Vincent Island, both hot fishing areas.

  The next day the kids decide to head to St Joseph State Park for more fun at the beach or a snorkel in St Joe Bay, our national treasure of a bay.  The rest of the party want to do some birding at the Buffer Preserve, just up the road.  It is migration season and you never know what might fly by, besides the eagle nest has some fledglings about to leave the nest.  The entire party decides to wait till tomorrow to drive up to Econfina Creek to kayak those crystal clear, cold waters.  And then the next day will be visiting Apalachicola’s historic district and delightful shopping area. And then the next day will be....well, let’s not plan too far ahead.  

 This fantastically fun day is drawing to a close too soon.  The kids are back, sandy and burned and tired from a day at the beach.  They head for the back deck, outdoor shower and changing room.The birders saw the eagle fledgling fly for the first time, and a flock of painted buntings. And you made the catch of the day.  Time for photos!  There is only one way to end this glorious day-a shrimp boil on the back deck.  So there you are, watching the kids fishing and kayaking off the dock, telling about the fish that got away, and shucking oysters and blue crab right from the Lagoon.  Life is good, very good, at THE PASS.

  A wide variety of experiences and activities can be enjoy within a hundred miles of The Club House. From the universities and the state capitol complex in Tallahassee to the metropolitan beach town feel of Destin and Walton County.  In between, lots of outdoor, nature based actives abound on our beautiful streams, rivers, lakes, marshes, estuaries, bays and Gulf of Mexico. These bodies of water can be explored from above and below as well as by boat.  Helicopter tours and dive operations are available in many areas.  Many state and federal parks in this area offer walking trails, and guided tours during certain times of the year.

 Through out the year, many local festivals celebrate this area’s unique natural diversity and history.   Florida’s Forgotten Coastline, the northwest panhandle, has a fascinating history and culture, and history buffs will enjoy visiting sites of cultural and historical significance

 For the shoppers, unique and locally owned shopping opportunities range from the shops of Apalachicola and Port St Joe, to the outlet malls of Destin and Panama City Beach.  Artists flock to the area for the annual Plen Aire Art Festival.  You are welcome to stop by the side of the road and watch the artist at work, or visit the Wet Room where the day’s painting are hung for drying, and sale.  

 There is simply too much to do here for one short trip.  And too much to do justice to in one short description.  Please feel free to ask for more....Most folks who visit here once, come back again and again...will you be one?
