GULF VIEW HOME ON INDIAN PASS

Whispering Palms is brand new to a rental program (2012) and has all brand new furnishings, bedding and appliances. The private pool along with a short walk to the beach make this a perfect home for all Indian Pass enthusiasts.

On the main level of Whispering Palms you will find your kitchen/living and dining area as well as 2 bedrooms. The kitchen is well appointed with new stainless steel appliances and has everything needed to cook for a group of then some. This part of the home looks out towards the ocean and the private pool. There is plenty of deck space on both the front and back of this home with chairs and tables on both sides. There are also many kids books and games to pass the "I gotta get out of the sun"

There are 2 bedrooms on this level. Bedroom #1 has two bunk beds so the room sleeps 4. There is also a full bathroom in the hallway of this bedroom. A bit further down the hallway is bedroom #2 which has 2 twin beds. This bedroom also has a T.V. in it.

On the next level of the home you will find Bedroom #3 and #4. Both considered the Masters as they have their own full bathrooms and beautiful views of the beach with private entrance to the decks. Both of these rooms come equipped with a T.V.

The pool area has plenty of chairs and loungers for your use. There is a gas grill and an outside shower and hose.

If you are looking to get away from crowded beaches and want a relaxing vacation, Indian Pass is for you! It is the "Old Florida"; one of the most beautiful coastal areas in Gulf County.

Enjoy bonfires roasting marshmallows and hot dogs while gazing the stars. Walking and collecting shells on virtually secluded shores. Saint Vincent's Refuge, a National Wildlife Reserve, is two miles away. Ride horses on the beach at Cape San Blas, a five minute drive, and see St. Joseph's Peninsula State Park voted top beaches in 2002 just 10 minutes away.

Please come and stay here and see if you can hear the "WHISPERING PALMS!"

Not So Clean Beach Rentl

  • 2 of 5

Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental.

Reviewer Comments:

This house has good potential, but the rental agency is not maintaining it well at all. Upon arrival we noticed that the beach house had not been properly cleaned. The bed spreads were dirty (literally discolored from the dirt) and had a horrible odor. The carpets were dirty, dishes in the cabinets were caked in food, there were clumps of dog hair in corners, there were dirty clothing items from the previous guests left on the floors, the blankets in the closets were covered in dog hair, fixtures and curtain mounts were broken and coming out of the walls, and the phone line was out. I will say that the emergency contact came and replaced the phones the next day, but the phone line took an additional day to fix. The pool floor was dirty when we arrived, we called the rental agency twice to report it as well as a problem with the filter, but no one came to clean or fix the pool until the day before we left. We had a pool net to try and clean it with, however the many holes in the net made it even more difficult to try and keep maintained. So overall, the house was filthy. We spent much of the first two days washing linens, vacuuming, and washing dishes. Thank goodness this house has an excellent washer and dryer set. I would recommend having a better cleaning service. The location was very peaceful and the beach was beautiful. Watch out for the mosquitoes though. As soon as it begins to get dark, they are everywhere and they bite through your clothing. Bug spray doesn't deter them.

Reviewer Comments:

The house is nice, a lot of steps! That was listed in the description, however the stairs were tile and steep,so if you are elderly be aware. The jacuzzi bathtub DID NOT WORK. THERE WAS A HUGE GLOB OF HAIR ON THE MASTER TUB WALL. the beds were listed as queen, but they were FULL. Even though we were told that maintenance would come about the jacuzzi, they never showed up. Also we were charged a huge cleaning fee , so to find the hair on the wall was disturbing.

Reviewer Comments:

Overall this was a beautiful home in a perfect location. The beach was never crowded. The pool was lovely. The only problems we encountered were the bathtubs needed updating. They were stained and had mold around the edges. The master bathtub had cracked with a poor repair. Some of the carpet was stained.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback. We plan on getting those tubs repaired/replaced after the summer rush! UPDATE: bathtubs have been repaired and should not have the issues this guest experienced. (02/17)
