About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Enjoy your vacation in a quiet, friendly seaside neighborhood that has the "Old Florida" feeling of relaxed, casual beach side living. Fishing and beach combing are a daily community event on our beach, about a minute’s walk away from your vacation home. Nature viewing begins, well, at your front porch. Our neighborhood is just that sort of a place where pedestrians, bicyclists and golf carts outnumber cars. By the end of your stay, neighbors will have become friends. Most visitors that discover Indian Pass return again and again.

Yes, it is that special a place! No high rise condos or loud nightclubs, just old fashioned friendly folks who make visitors feel welcome.

Our vacation home, Indian Pass Sunflower, is a part of the history of this neighborhood. She began life as a one room fishing cottage. Over the years, she has been lovingly renovated into a beautiful two bedroom home. Custom touches can be seen throughout the home.

Relax in the great room while you enjoy the ocean view. Be sure and notice the exposed heart pine beams overhead. Feel your inner chef while preparing a meal in this unique kitchen, complete with custom pecky cypress cabinetry, wood and granite counters and stainless appliances.

Handcrafted tile mosaics bring art to both the kitchen and bath floors. A tiled, walk-in shower for two and custom cypress vanity encourage the pleasure of a pampered moment. The bedrooms will bring a smile to you with their whimsical headboards and inviting colors. Each has a standard size bed, reading lamp and ample closet space.

Start, end or just enjoy your entire day on the comfortable screened porch. It’s a great spot to people watch as your neighbors stroll by. To end your day, watch a sunset from the rooftop viewing deck. You may never want to go home!

The Sunflower is an accessible home, complete with wheelchair ramp and wide doorways. The shower is roll in wide and without a curb. The carpet is a low loop, sisal style. The kitchen has a lowered counter for seated use. Please feel free to discuss any accommodation needs with us.

There is plenty to do around the area. The wonderful shops in nearby towns are locally owned and reflect their owner’s artistic individuality. Birding and wildlife activities abound at several parks and reserves. Both offshore and river fishing are considered to be excellent in these waters. Indian Pass Boat Ramp is just down at the end of the street. Several great fishing tournaments, wildlife and birding events and celebration festivals take place here throughout the year. And then, there is just plain relaxing. We do that well here!

I especially enjoyed eating on the porch and falling asleep to the sound of the surf.

Indian Pass Sunflower

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I celebrated our 30 anniversary at the Sunflower and had an amazing time. The sunflower was well equipped, very comfortable for us and it has a special charm about it. The woodwork inside is very well done and we had coffee every morning on the spacious screened in front porch. We finished each evening enjoying the stars on the upper deck. Very nice place

Quite, peaceful and very relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Indian Pass Sunflower and the beach was great. The Sunflower is in a small community where there are other vacation rentals so there was not a lot of people. At first we were skeptical since this was our first time to stay in a home on vacation since we always stay in a condo. That skepticism didn't last long, we had everything we needed for our stay and it was very comfortable. The fridge and cabinet had items that we could use if needed and it was like being at home.The beds seemed small but very comfortable and accommodated our family needs well. The outside area could have used a little TLC, there was an outside shower that one member of our family used and seemed to like it pretty good. The only downfall about our visit was the mosquitoes and at times they were very bad but of course they are bad most places. The beach was fantastic with hardly no people, it was like having your own personal beach. Love, love, loved it. We walked about 100 - 200 yds with 2 seperate access areas to get to the beach. One of which was thru a weedy area and the other was where the golf carts and vehicles could access the beach. Cars were only allowed on the beach with a permit so we only saw 1 or 2 vehicles, but saw several golf carts. The people we met on the beach were very friendly and we hope to visit this area again in the future. Loved our stay at Sunflower and Thank You Barbara for being so accommodating and meeting our family needs during our vacation. Home to visit again soon.....

I loved the house. There was plenty of space. My favorite part of the house was the screened in porch which faces the gulf. We were so close to the beach. The weather was beautiful the whole time. We went to the beach everyday and enjoyed the breeze and the warm water. It was so relaxing.

Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

I loved everything about the Sunflower. I enjoyed coffee every morning on the screened in porch and a cocktail every evening on the star gazers deck. Seriously the best - most stress-free vacation I've had in years. If you just want to get away from everything and everyone, this is the place to go. Very comfortable house, the pictures do not do it justice. It's in a great location - minutes away from Indian Pass Raw Bar - and just a short walk to what feels like your own private beach. Barbara was super nice, very sweet and gave me lots of information regarding the area. Which was really nice since I was traveling alone. Everything about the trip was perfect. I can't wait to go back!

We had a wonderful vacation and so appreciated the owners being flexible and having a home with amenities for all occasions. We enjoyed every aspect of Sunflower and its location. Comfortable, loved the porch and upper deck for sunsets.
