Indian Pass house description

Funky Palms, decorated in Old Florida memorabilia ,is our bright and sunny Indian Pass beach house located about 50 yards from the beach with great unobstructed Gulf Views. There is a large screened porch across the south side that always enjoys a soft Gulf breeze. There are decks on either side of the screened porch that provide for excellent sunbathing spots.
Funky Palms offers high speed wireless internet and free long distance. Funky Palms sleeps eight, with 2 large king rooms - each enjoying private porches - plus one full room. In addition, there is a large Florida room with twin beds plus a large play area for kids. There are two full baths, one upstairs and one down.
The living, dining and kitchen areas are open and provide terrific space for a family gathering. The living area is equipped with a large TV including DVD plus a stereo including CD player. The kitchen is well equipped, including current appliances.
Funky Palms is also great for kids and pets
Funky Palms has plenty of parking for your boat and is only about a mile from the public boat ramp located directly across from St. Vincent Island.
The Indian Pass area is ideally suited to those that love the outdoors. St. Vincent Island is a 15,000 acre National wildlife preserve that has no residents and can be visited during the day for exploring and picnics. You’ll see all kinds of wildlife including bald eagles that nest on the island. The fishing is some of the best in Florida, oyster beds are abundant, and seasonal scalloping is a favorite activity of many visitors. There are no high rises, no monster houses and a relaxed feel will make you think you have stepped back in time to a Florida that is disappearing all too fast. There is something about this area that makes you feel close to God. some say it is the spirit of the Native Americans that inhabited St Vincent island years ago. I'm not sure what it is or where it came from but it is something special and you will feel it when you come.
If you are interested in golfing there is a nice golf course 20 minutes away.

                      Why the Owner Chose Indian Pass:
                      We fell in love with Indian Pass immediately because of its charm and quaintness and laid back living . You feel like you are stepping back in time in this very private beach community. Our grandchildren love the swimming, the shelling and the fishing. Our dogs love the beach as well and Indian Pass beach is great for dogs and dog lovers.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The Funky Palms is great for families. Our family has its reunion every year here. the house has plenty of room for privacy and get togethers. Lots of screen porches allow you to feel the breezes and give you great views of the beach
