Indian Pass house description

The Turtle House (formerly Bertha’s Place to all our friends, family and past renters) is a three bedroom, two bath home.Outside, find screened front porch and large back deck with outdoor shower, fish cleaning station and picnic table. With an interior in shades of turquoise, teal and taupe, it is a cool, calming, comfortable retreat from the heat and sun of our Florida summers. It is located across the driveway from The Club House, at Indian Pass Lagoon Retreat.

Overstuffed denim sofa and club chair in the living area invite an afternoon nap. TV and WIFI connections are available as you lounge the evening away. The dining table seats four to six.

The large Kitchen is a great place to boil up those blue crab you just brought up from the traps off the dock. It is fully equiped but if you still need a bit of this or that, just call me. If it is in my kitchen, I will bring it to you.The Laundry room is just off the kitchen.

The Master suite has a Queen bed, side tables and lamps. The master Bath is roomy, with two basins and a shower.

One guest Bedroom has a queen bed with side tables and lamps.

The third bedroom has a standard size bed, bed side table and reading lamps.

All bed linens and towels are provided. Only extra beach towels may be needed.

The Screened Porch is is wonderful place to relax with an evening drink and share stories with the locals and your new friends about the fish that got away.

A Fish Cleaning Station is available for the ones that didn’t throw that hook. It's only a short walk down the driveway to the dock and the crab traps, ready to be refilled with the remains of today's catch. Ample parking space and conveniently located hoses make cleaning your boat easy.


Keywords: Comfortable, roomy and relaxing home with screened porch and fish cleaning station on back deck. Short walk to the pet friendly beach that still allows permitted beach driving. Central to all that the area offers-Beachcombing, Swimming, Fishing, Hunting, Bird and Nature watching, Kayaking, Festivals. Meeting new Friends in the neighborhood. Finding a Home away from home. Doing nothing at all. GREAT YEAR ROUND DESTINATION.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2003

                  About the owner: We sailed into this area in 1992 from our home in the Caribbean. After years in the hospitality business, and marine woodworking, we were ready to find a home in the Florida Panhandle that would make us want to give up the cruising life. When we first visited Indian Pass, we knew we had found that special place.

                  Why the Owner Chose Indian Pass:
                  We had the opportunity to buy this property from our dear neighbor, Bertha. It would make a perfect addition to our very special Retreat.We want to share this jewel of a place with others seeking a quiet, friendly, beach community.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We are on site owners, and available for any assistance you might need. Our dock is a great place to get blue crabs for dinner, or to catch that redfish. Oystering in the area is also a lot of fun. We are a short walk to the beach, and centrally located to all that this incredible area has to offer. Most of our guests have arrived as strangers, and become good friends that return year after year. We look forward to those shared experiences each year, memorialized over shrimp and crab boils at our home on the Lagoon.
