                                                              Salty Dogs exceeded my expectations in so many ways. It was a quiet retreat, that I have already reserved for a return trip this summer. Chris, the property manager, responded quickly to any questions or requests, and went above and beyond to ensure I had everything I needed. The house was very quiet, with beautiful views of the gulf and of St Vincent Island. The home is well laid out, and everything was perfect for my stay. Highly recommend Salty Dogs if you are looking for a quiet beach getaway!

                                                              Fantastic Beach House

                                                              John G.

                                                              My wife and I stayed at Salty Dog for a week in early February. Chris is a friendly and responsive host that genuinely cares about his guests. The house was clean and comfortable with fantastic gulf and beach access. If you want to get away from the crowds this is the place.

                                                              Great place on Indian Pass

                                                              Bradley D.

                                                              We have stayed at this property two times. The manager of the property Chris is great. The location at the end of the pass is wonderful. The house has been clean and 100% ready on time every time. The house is located close to St. Vincent Island and it makes the nights very pretty. The waves seen to be a little calmer maybe due to the island and the shells are great if you get up early in the morning. While we were there our neighbors were fishing and caught from the shore a lot of very large Red fish. The best experience from start to finish that we have had on Indian Pass. I would highly recommend renting this property or renting any other property Chris manages.

                                                              Best property ever!

                                                              Eric J.

                                                              The nicest, most private property I have stayed at! The managerial team from Turtle Inn were fantastic! Updated, and beach-y feel to the home while giving off a very home-y vibe to make you actually want to use the home. Fishing is awesome but I don't recommend swimming because we saw lots of stingrays shore side and I caught a bull shark. The shelling is phenomenal and there is a boat ramp a mile down the road. Very close to gas, groceries, and the state park. If you want to go somewhere to relax in private, I highly recommend Salty Dawgs! I will be using this rental quite frequently.

                                                              Great family vacation

                                                              Bradley D.

                                                              We have gone to the pass for a few years. This is the best house we have stayed at so far. Chris was very easy to work with and recommended a fishing charter. The island views at night are as pretty as it gets. Located close to the boat ramp for fishing trip. The water was very calm and beach is great. We will use this property again.

                                                              Wonderful family vacation

                                                              ProudmommyNashville, TN

                                                              We stayed at Salty Dogs May 21st through May 28th and had an incredible family vacation. Chris was absolutely wonderful to work with during the booking/reservation phase and was right down the road once we arrived at the home if we needed anything at all. The house was immaculate; probably the cleanest vacation rental we've stayed in. The home was well stocked and very well maintained. Like a previous reviewer posted, the home feels very private with the mature shrubbery on either side. We enjoyed the views of St. Vincent Island, swimming, shelling and fires on the beach. After leaving, we realized that we left our dvd case in the home. A quick phone call to Chris (which he always answers!) remedied our forgetfulness AND he took care of the cost of shipping! Thanks so much, Chris, for opening up your beautiful home to us and for an amazing family vacation.
