Greatest Birthday Ever
This is simple.The Barnacle and the owners Janis and Victor provided a wonderful time.Five stars does not do justice to the beauty of the place and the considerate kindness of the ownres.
Thank you so much for your compliments! We strive to make The Barnacle a wonderful place to enjoy our area, and we were so happy to have been able to share it will you! We are looking forward to your return!
We had a wonderful time. Victor and Janis were as wonderful as everyone said. We were especially grateful to bring our dog and he loved his time on the beach! The place is extremely well appointed and meticulously clean. We love to cook and had everything we needed as far as pots and utensils as well as a grill.
A couple of things to note: If you have Sprint, you will likely not have service. They do have WiFi, but it barely worked for us on our phones. We like to bring our Apple TV with us to watch movies, but couldn’t use it so to very slow WIFI. We tried to watch one of the DVDs provided, but something was wrong with the wiring from the DVD player to to the TV as when we turned it up, the sound on the TV was awful so we gave up watching the DVDs. My only suggestion wound be to possibly add a WiFi extender and upgrade the TV. These were not a big deal to us as we had good weather overall and spent much time on the beach or exploring the area, but would be helpful if it’s a rainy day or if you need to get work done. Overall, being able to bring our furry family member over rode these minor inconveniences because it’s rare to be able to do so.
We also agree with others that you need to bring bug spray. We are native Floridians that now reside in Atlanta so we know this area will be thick with mosquitos and biting knats around dusk. if you’re not used to this., it’s just part of the Florida experience. :) You won’t have any problems with bugs on the beach.
In our opinion, the price, excellent experience with the owners, cleanliness of the place and being able to bring our dog made it a great getaway.
Thank you for your nice comments, Britta! We are glad you and your husband had such a nice time! I wanted to address some of your concerns for our future guests, to make their stay even more enjoyable. AT&T is the better cell service in our area. None of them are perfect, but the two that have the best chance or working on Indian Pass at the moment, are AT&T and Verizon. Our WiFi is intermittent at times, however we have a full coverage extension, so when the signal is working from the company, The Barnacle's signal will be as strong as it can be. We upgraded our TV last week to a Samsung Smart TV!! It is a beautiful TV, and I'm sure will provide much more enjoyment! By the way, we had our first frost last night, and that will go a long way in keeping the mosquitos down until summer. Like you said, though, being in Florida, I would never be too far from that bug repellent. Thanks again, Britta, and please come back and see us again soon!!
Cleanest rental ever!!
It was the perfect house for our family of four and large dog. It was immediately obvious that the owners put their heart and soul into the house. House was impeccably clean and organized, just the way I like things. The path to the beach is a gorgeous short walk up and over the dune. We paddle boarded across the water to St. Vincent, short but grueling paddle fighting the currents. Kids loved seeing the dolphins swimming along with us, as my five year old said, “I could hear them breathing!” Daily bald eagle and blue heron sightings, even saw an eagle steal fish from a fisherman! We love finding new places along the coast that are off the beaten path and quiet. This is the place! Port st Joe is right down the road for grocery and great restaurants. It is also a great jump off point to explore Apalachicola, cape San blas, and st George.
Thank you for your nice review! We are so glad you and your family had a great time and could experience all the wildlife. The children must have been thrilled! Please come back and visit us again!

Lovely beach getaway
This is a very beautiful beach house! It is very clean and the layout was very nice and well thoughtout. Victor and Janis were so welcoming. We also had our three dogs with who also love the beach! We were happy that the beach was quiet and clean. Cant wait to go back!
