About the property

"Back To The Beach!"

"Back to the Beach" is a quaint bungalow style cottage with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. Located in one of the last "old Florida" neighborhoods It is just 200 steps to the beach.

The neighborhood of Indian Pass has no high rises or condos. It is a place to enjoy beautiful beaches swimming, wildlife, surf fishing and relaxing. Bicycles, golf carts and long walks are the norm. Riding on the beach in your car or golf cart is allowed with a permit from gulf county offices located in Port St.Joe. A public boat ramp is l mile from the house. An outdoor shower, fish cleaning station and gas grill make beach life simple. The sunset at the beach is always beautiful

The house is one level with no steps. It sleeps 8-12 comfortably. The master bedroom contains a king size bed. Two other bedrooms each have a queen size bed. The living room has a sleeper sofa and a back room houses the washer and dryer, a trundle bed and a single sleeper chair. Linens and towels are provided.

We met at a beach and married over fifty years ago and have returned to the beach because we love it so much. Hence the name, "Back To The Beach"

Great location, clean, simple and crazy close to beach!

We got there early and able to check in and get settled. Plenty of space. Very close to great beach, boat ramp just down the road. House was clean, simple and no steps. Would stay there again.

Nice quaint cottage. Had everything you needed.

  • 5 of 5

Right off the beach, able to take dogs for walks and they played in the water. Hose outside too clean them. No stairs, which we wanted. Needs very comfortable. Cable TV, but TV is older and cable skips now and then. Overall, better than expected.

Location as relaxing as it was beautiful!

Excellent location! Only a block from a secluded beach. Filled with amenities and the owners were extremely responsive. We only wish we didn't have to leave the beach!

Beautiful! Perfect for large family!

  • 5 of 5

This home is perfect for a large family! There were 7 of us (4 adults and 3 kids) and there was more than enough room! Everything you need is there. Friendly and very responsive owners! They have also done a couple of updates on the house that we saw that are different than the pictures. There is now a larger awning over the front door with a couple of chairs and such out there for sitting. It was nice to be able to sit out there while it was raining. The house is a short walk to the beach, and the beaches are beautiful and uncrowded. It is a very safe area, very peaceful and quite. Bring bug spray, like anywhere the mosquitoes aren't too bothersome during the day, but if you go out at night they are pretty rough, but it didn't stop us from having fun. About 5 minutes from the house is an area where you can take a boat to Saint Vincent's Island, which was nice. We walked the beach over there and found lots of seashells., and tons of crabs which were nice to watch. We hope to return in the next few years.

Great beach house for a large family!

  • 5 of 5

Everything you need is there. Responsive owners. Unspoiled uncrowded beach, in a small safe community. We absolutely loved it! If you have small children, a disability or just hate stairs, this is the perfect house and it's flat all the way to the ocean.
