A great third visit to this property.

  • 5 of 5

Thanks to the Captain and the property manager have allowed us to continue to build good family memories in Congo Bongo. The property is relaxing and they treat us like family before, during, and after our visit. I recommend renting from these folks for this property and any others they own. Specific things about this porperty we like: large screened in porch, privacy, comfortable beds, and the owner/manager of course. Thanks!

Great house

  • 5 of 5

Great house for the 2 of us and our furry friend. Really nice screened porch, adequately equipped, quiet location, good water pressure in shower, lots of outdoor porch space.

Not close to beach access, but fairly close to Indian Pass boat launch, and not too far from the cape. Probably as close to Apalachicola as to PSJ. We were here for work, so proximity to the beach not a concern for us. Would stay here again for work or fishing.

Not what I expected.

  • 3 of 5

The house was not anywhere near the water. Even the “lagoon” is more like woods and the yellow flies are horrible!!! The house it’s self was accommodating. It was cute and comfortable, I just didn’t like the location. And the raw bar near the house is ALWAYS packed; at least a 1-2 wait every time we stopped to eat there this time of year.

Owner's Response: The house is advertised as lagoon view and that is what it is. We can not control the bugs in this part of the country.that is why we screened in part of the large porch! So sorry you missed eating at the Raw Bar. There is one in downtown PSJ too!
