Property description

Indian Pass house description

“Indian Pastime” is a beautiful getaway located in Indian Pass Beach, one of the last “Old Florida” seaside neighborhoods. A short three minute walk to a pristine beach offers shelling, surf fishing, and just plain chilling out. Dolphin may be seen cruising the coast along with many species of shore birds including pelicans, seagulls, skimmers, sandpipers and others.
Driving on the beach is allowed by obtaining a permit from the offices of Gulf County in nearby Port St. Joe. Fires on the beach are also allowed. Sunrises and sunsets are quite spectacular. The neighborhood is great for golf carts and biking. Boating is easily accessed from the boat ramp less than a mile away, so load up the boat and come on. Just across the boat ramp you’ll find St. Vincent Island, a 12,000 acre uninhabited national wildlife refuge. You can get to the island by boat, canoe, kayak, or the local shuttle service. St. Joseph Peninsular State Park, voted top beach in America in 2002 and always in the top 10, is also just minutes away.
The historic “Indian Pass Raw Bar” is just around the corner along with many local restaurants offering world class seafood. Shopping, art galleries, museums, entertainment and more are available in nearby Port St. Joe and Apalachicola. Come experience the peace and quiet of “Old Florida’s” forgotten coast.
Our house is ground level with two bedrooms, one bath, a den and laundry room with washer and dryer. Bedroom 1 has a queen bed, TV and VCR, bedroom 2 has a double bed and TV and the den has a trundle bed that makes into either two twins or a king with TV and VCR. The living room has a TV, DVD player and stereo/CD player. The kitchen is fully equipped with stove, refrigerator with ice maker, dishwasher, microwave, coffee pot and toaster.
Outside the kitchen door is a large wrap around deck and patio overlooking a beautiful backyard with a fire pit, bench seating and a fish cleaning station. The back yard is totally fenced and dog friendly. There’s also a doggie door so Fido can come and go as he pleases. The over sized driveway has plenty of room for your boat, rv or golf cart.
