Overview

Indian Pass House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

The beauty of the setting of this home is unmatchable. From the large open porch, view pristine white sandy beaches of Indian Pass with multiple species of sea birds, enjoy watching dolphins in the Gulf, and experience stars at night like you've never seen them. Even night owls will want to awaken for the spectacular sunrises peeking above the Western tip of beautiful St. Vincent's Island, a National Wildlife Refuge just a short kayak trip away. Once you've stayed at 'Starlight by the Sea' you'll never want to leave--it happens to everyone.

This home was designed by the owners for fun for the entire family, all ages and including the 4-legged members as well. Indian Pass is the dog friendliest beach you'll ever find. Like horses? We're horse friendly, too. Ride the 5000 acre Buffer Preserve or the 8000 acre Box R Ranch, or with permits and tail bags, ride the lovely beaches of Indian Pass and Cape San Blas. There's also great fishing, boating, and golfing. After all this activity, relax swinging in the hammock, sunning on the open deck, or reading a good book in the shade of the veranda. Then stroll the beach for a magnificent sunset. It truly is magical.

IF YOUR IDEA OF A GREAT VACATION IS...

To gently awaken in bed with a view of a huge red sun peeking over the horizon and the sound of seagulls and waves lapping the shore

To sit on a breezy porch with a panoramic view of the Gulf of Mexico and watch dolphins frolicking in blue water and blue herons walking along a snow white beach

To eat sunset dinners al fresco while watching the Gulf of Mexico turn an iridescent blue against a pink sky

To lounge on comfortable chairs looking up at star-filled nights and moonlight shining on the sea

THEN 'BOOK NOW' AT 'STARLIGHT BY THE SEA'

About Joy Stallings

I am an anthropologist and my husband is a commercial real estate attorney. We are both now retired with 3 horses and 4 dogs, living quite a different lifestyle on Indian Pass from the hustle and bustle of Atlanta city life. As pictured here with me, we often enjoy having our beautiful granddaughter with us at 'Starlight by the Sea', a place filled with years of wonderful times and family memories.

Joy Stallings purchased this house in 1992

Why Joy Stallings chose Indian Pass

When we saw our property on Indian Pass in 1992, it was the first time we had visited Indian Pass, even though we had vacationed on Cape San Blas several times with our young children. In fact, our son and daughter were only 6 and 4 years old in 1982 when we first vacationed in the area. As we hiked through the oak trees, palmettos, and palms, and climbed the sand dunes near the beach, we were in awe of the beauty we beheld. It was like finding a secret hideaway, with beautiful natural vegetation, gently curving white sandy beaches, and a view of an uninhabited barrier island displaying a show of seabirds hunting their supper in the blue gulf waters. And, amazingly, that is the way it's been ever since...

What makes this house unique

The uniqueness of 'Starlight by the Sea' and Indian Pass can be summed up in a couple of words--family fun! It's a place where everyone, furry ones included, can relax, play, feel at home, and enjoy the quiet, pristine, natural beauty of the coast. We built 'Starlight by the Sea' in 1996, and our focus was to experience as much of the natural beauty of Indian Pass from all areas of the house, to be comfortable for all ages, from parents and grandparents to young children, and to accommodate our 4 legged family members as well. It has certainly fulfilled all our dreams for our family, and we think it can for yours as well.

A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE!

  • 5 of 5
I have been to this area for a vacation for about 15 years now and we have finally found the perfect place. We stayed here in early November for a week. The experience started off well with timely communication by the owner. When we arrived the home was even better than expected! The pictures don't do it justice. The home was extremely clean, very well appointed, and felt much more like a home than a rental. The beds were comfortable and the linens so soft. The outside back deck was huge! I read an entire book in the hammock! The beach was quiet and clean. We saw dolphins, sting rays and many jelly fish. The nature preserve was very intriguing to look at . We hated to leave. Our damage deposit was returned within days. We will certainly be back to Indian Pass and we want to stay at Starlight by the Sea.

Return Visit--Everything We Expected and More

  • 5 of 5
This morning after driving 900 miles north after a week at Starlight by the Sea, we saw the sun rise over a partially picked corn field. Beautiful but nothing in comparison to the sunrise from the master bedroom at this property over the gulf and St. Vincent's Wildlife Refuge. We stayed here in 2012 and looked forward to staying here again. We knew what to expect and it was everything and more. The location, the massive deck with comfort and view are prefect. The layout of the home is great for a couple or large family. The amenities are excellent. The owners are very accommodating and a great resource. The Indian Pass, Port St. Joe area is perfect for those wanting relax and enjoy the beauty of nature, great weather and fresh seafood. A perfect day for us at Starlight would be walks on the beach with our yellow lab, views from the deck of the gulf and beach and grilling fresh grouper on the grill on the deck. We hope to make a third visit to Starlight by the Sea in the future and highly recommend it.

Best vacation had by the entire family

  • 5 of 5
The property was very clean and well maintained. I was very impressed with the kitchen supplies and utensils. The extra blankets and sheets were a plus. We loved the views of the beach and island. The dogs loved their long beach walks and daily swim time. It was a perfect fit for us. We wanted seclusion yet close enough to town, state parks, kayaking. I would highly recommend and look forward to future stays

Sunshine on a Rainy Day

  • 5 of 5
The long awaited week was a
comfort and a joy. Even though the rain fell almost every day, this home and Indian Pass made it all worthwhile.
In all my years of vacationing on Indian Pass and Cape San Blas, this property owner was the most conscientious and hospitable I have ever experienced.
This property really felt like "home away from home." The porch is as great as advertised. The single level was perfect for older dogs and their people. We wasted a lot of time packing what we though were essentials because the pantries and cabinets were already fully stocked. What a surprise. We loved the house, the owner and Indian Pass. We look forward to returning. Thank you.

Easter week visit 2014

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely a great week at a beautiful home. We bought local seafood and cooked on the awesome gas grill and enjoyed dinner on porch. Neighbors were from all over and really made the stay fun. Our dogs walked miles on the beach -- they may sleep for the next week! Kayaking and fishing were very good - kept us busy every day.

Thank you, Joy. We are so happy that your beautiful place on Indian Pass is available for visitors. We will be back!
