Wake up at the beach on Indian Pass, where there are no high rises, no traffic, no worries, just wind, sand and surf. Enjoy your stay in this quaint community that is centrally located between Port St. Joe and historic Apalachicola. You will be less than a mile down the beach from St. Vincent’s Island, a 15,000 acre National Wildlife Refuge that is great for nature lovers. Spend some time there and you may just catch a glimpse of the American Bald Eagles that nest there. It is also just a short drive to St. Joseph Peninsula State Park. This is the Florida you’ve been looking for.

This beach front home is beautifully decorated with a split floor plan and screened porch overlooking the waves. The decks off of two of the bedrooms have gulf-front views. The personal boardwalk from the home takes you to the beach for swimming, shelling, surf fishing and great beach walks. You won’t find a better view.

Features include a fully equipped kitchen with newer appliances, central heat & air, ceiling fans, washer & dryer, dishwasher, cable TV, phone, bamboo wood floors, outside shower, covered parking, wireless internet and gas grill, all less than one mile from the boat ramp.

About Larry

We have been married for 20 years and have four children. Two daughters, 26 and 12 and two sons, twin nine year olds. We live in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Larry purchased this house in 2007

Why Larry chose Indian Pass

We began going to Indian Pass in 2001. It soon became one of our favorite places to go to get away from the hectic pace of our daily lives in New Orleans. As we had children and began taking them to Indian Pass we realized that it was something that we wanted to become a tradition for our family and a place for us to eventually have a retirement home.

What makes this house unique

The best thing about any house at the beach is the proximity and access to the beach. Ours is second to none. Indian Pass is probably the most laid back of all of the beaches in the 'Forgotten Coast' area and we have a boardwalk right to it. This is particularly ideal for children since you do not have to deal with walking to the public crossovers. You leave your stuff on the beach all day and just leave it at the end of the boardwalk until the next day.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Loved the outside shower being able to see the ocean and shower at the same time! The weather was great and the LOCATION perfect. Maisie

Absolutely Wonderful

  • 5 of 5
We rented this place for a week. It was all we hoped for and more. The house was spacious and well laid-out. THe screened-in porch was perfect for rainy days, and the rest of the porch wonderful to gaze at the beautiful night sky with all its stars.
The boardwalk made it easy to traverse the vegetation and still be able to admire the flowers and butterflies as we headed to the beach.
The sand there was so soft and never too hot -- perfect for buildling sandcastles, just relaxing or strolling along the water's edge looking for sanddollars and shells. We loved the waves on windy days and found that the shore on the spit dropped off very gradually so that we could venture out quite a distance with our grandchildren on calmer days.
We saw people fishing right from the shore, although the beach in front of our rental place was mostly deserted except for us.
In spite of some rainy days, we had some gorgeous sunrises and sunsets. Lots of shore birds; I especially liked the brown pelicans. The rolling canonball jellyfish were interesting to watch when we found out they posed absolutely no danger. We even spotted dolphins and rays!
A most wonderful spot. I hope the area does not get more developed. This is what I always dreamed the REAL Florida was like.

Nice time but pricey. Watch for hidden costs from rental company

  • 4 of 5
We enjoyed our stay overall at Track of the Moon. I was frustrated w/ the elevated hidden costs - over $300 to the rental company. We've stayed at TyBee Island & St George in the past for half that amount. We were looking forward to swimming but were not expecting so many ocean creatures so close (ankle deep water) to shore. We saw Hammerhead sharks and other large fish and LOTS of sting rays, right where we wanted to swim. The last few days the sand bar close to the house was littered w/ cannonball jelly fish. My daughter counted 40! Thankfully that was just our final two days. We expect some ocean life to be in the water - certainly! But personally we weren't comfortable w/ the sharks & sting rays! Many folks were fishing - I don't know if that made an effect... the house was nice. Not a lot of sitting room in the living room - just the couch. And watch out for the nails poking out of the porch! they are rusty and cut easily.

Owner's Response: Amy, thanks for your review and 4 out of 5 stars. I am happy that you had a mostly great experience. To eliminate any possible confusion for our future guests please be aware that the prices quoted and the prices posted are always the price paid. When you receive the bill from my agent there is a breakdown of charges for things like cleaning the home after departure and linen usage. But rest assured, it is never in addition to the price you get from VRBO or me as the homeowner. And the benefit of having an agent locally can’t be overstated. If you ever have any issues or need advice about the area they are always available to help.
It is true that the area is brimming with wildlife of all kinds. This includes sea life. I am happy that the jellyfish were only present for two days. When they do appear it is generally for a short time and then they are gone. The good thing about the Cannonball Jellyfish is they do not sting if you bump into one. They are really amazing and beautiful creatures. This is the first I have ever heard of a hammerhead on our beach, but I am sure it will not be the last; it is the beach after all. Finally, one of the benefits to staying at our home is that it sits right on the beach. However it requires a boardwalk to get over the dunes to the water. This boardwalk, while very convenient, is the highest maintenance item we have. The constant exposure to the salt air and sea spray requires that it be maintained constantly because of expansion and contraction of the wood. This is why many area homes do not have a boardwalk and require use of the public crossovers. We do our best to maintain it and keep it safe and will continue to do so. We will even request additional attention based on this concern. When there with our family we always wear flip flops and just leave them at the end of the boardwalk when we step off into the sand. Just the smallest amount of caution should prevent any mishaps.

Wonderful Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first trip to Track of the Moon and it was fantastic! Unfortunately it did rain quite often at the beginning of our stay but that did not keep us from enjoying our time. We spent our days fishing off the beach, scalloping in the bay and looking for seashells and sand dollars on the sand bar. There was no shortage of beautiful huge shells and sand dollars of all sizes! Our children are 11, 5 and 2 and they had a blast all week. The kitchen was well stocked with all the essentials you could need. We loved that we could park under the house. Another plus was the boardwalk directly from the house to the beach. We even left our Canopy up with our sand toys and chairs on the beach all week. It was great not having to haul all of that back and forth to the house. The rental office sent someone over to replace the glass in the sliding doors and fix a sticky door lock and he was super friendly. The house was very clean compared to others we have rented in the area before. I would most definitely recommend this property to friends and family. Overall, we really had a great time and Larry, the owner, was a very gracious host and allowed us to stay an extra day. I really hated to leave that beautiful beach paradise and I sincerely hope to get to return next summer!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind comments. I am glad you had a great time! Thanks for being patient with the glass installer on the replacement glass. At least now the fogged glass on the sliding door is history. Let us know if we can help you in the future.

a fall vacation at the Beach

  • 5 of 5
This was our third visit to "Track of the Moon" and hopefully will not be our last. We like the quiet
surroundings , sitting on the screen porch listening to the ocean. Taking the boardwalk to the beach and
trying to identify the wild flowers along the way.

Easy to get to Port.St. Joe and Apalachicola for shopping and great seafood

We had a wonderful family vacation. The house was exactly as the information stated. The owners were very helpful. We enjoyed eating at Triple Tails and they were very nice. We also bought lots of oysters, shrimp, and crab cakes from them. We took afternoon trips to area locations including Apalachicola, a very interesting town. The kids spent lots of time on the beach playing in the sand. We were even treated with a new nest of turtle eggs and got to see them buried. The kids adopted the nest which contains 124 eggs. This was a great educational experience for the kids. The guys enjoyed surf fishing and the fish were really biting. They caught catfish, growlers, stingrays, 2 types of sharks, crabs, and even a flounder. We loved being so close to the beach yet it was not a busy beach and the area people were very friendly. It was nice that we had our own boardwalk to the beach and could leave items by the boardwalk and did not have to carry everything back to the house. We will definitely recommend this property to friends.

Wonderful Relaxation

  • 5 of 5
Location and amenities were excellent. Layout of the home with the separation of the master suite from the other bedrooms and the spacious kitchen/dining/living area was very accommodating. Combination of spotty cell reception and DSL internet access provided for selective disconnection from the outside world for relaxation while maintaining access as desired. Kitchen was well-equipped and, coupled with the gas grill, made staying in for dinner very easy. Indian Pass Raw Bar's food, atmosphere and live entertainment made it worth the wait as the closest dining-out option. Access to virtually deserted beach was incredibly inviting. Both Port St. Joe and Apalachicola provided very interesting shopping and dining opportunities populated with friendly folks. St. Vincent Island was well worth the cost of the shuttle ride, but cannot be adequately explored in a single visit. Would definitely like to repeat our visit sometime and selfishly hope the Forgotten Coast remains the way it is.
