Simply the best!

  • 5 of 5

This gorgeous house has everything you could want in a vacation home. Spacious, well appointed kitchen; comfortable living area with view of the Gulf; dock in back on a lagoon (perfect for sunsets); comfortable bedrooms with private baths (the three downstairs have their own access to outdoors); and a wonderful front screened porch with rocking chairs. Owner very accommodating and responsive. We will stay here again and again!

Can't wait to go back!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week at Jack's Gull and we can not wait to go back! My husband enjoyed fishing off the back dock and also fishing in the surf. We enjoyed some amazing sunrises and sunsets. The beach was beautiful and peaceful with very few other people around. The house was perfect. The kitchen was well stocked with every kind of pot, pan, etc. that may be needed to make your stay even better. We have been looking for a place to vacation that was slower paced and not quite so crowded and we have definitely found it here. We look forward to coming back soon!!

They've thought of everything!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is AMAZING!! We have vacationed at Indian Pass before, this was our third time to this beach, so we knew what to expect from the area....but this house was fabulous! We had 8 people stay VERY comfortably here. The design of the house is planned perfectly. The kitchen is stocked with everything you could need. The appliances are top notch. The front porch is HUGE. The bedrooms are BEAUTIFUL. Linens and towels are included. Everything is so clean. WE WILL BE BACK!!! Thank you so much to the owners of this property for sharing this GORGEOUS home with us.

Great time was had by all!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Jack's Gulls from Thursday, November 3 through Sunday, November 6, 2016. We came down to go to the Seafood Festival in Apalachicola, but the house may have been the best part of the trip. The short walk to the beach was awesome and watching the sunset from the Crow's nest in the house was breathtaking. Screened in porches front and back allow for bug free enjoyment of the phenomenal weather. The layout of the house could not be more perfect. We had three couples and everyone had their own bathroom. The spacious kitchen was awesome for food prep. We can't wait to come back! We are planning another trip this summer and we plan on bringing the boat so we can take advantage of the dock out back in the lagoon. Wonderful home! I would not hesitate recommending this house!

Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

We had an almost perfect stay at Jack's Gulls. Vacationing with my son's family which included 2 thirteen year olds and a toddler, there were 7 of us total.

We were able to put the baby in a back bedroom with his parents across the hall. The owners found a place where we could rent a crib which worked out beautifully. The 2 teens had it made with a sitting room and bathroom to themselves upstairs. The home was just as advertised. We had needlessly worried about the home's condition after reading a review just prior to our stay.

We had no plumbing problems. The ice maker was noisy but no big deal. The house was obviously well thought out when it was built and was beautifully furnished.

The bay in back was perfect for the kayaks we rented from Dalys Dock, which I highly recommend. Fishing proved to be a disappointment. Only catfish were caught with the exception of a lone red fish found feasting on crab in the trap.

While fishing from the dock one night we did observe a rather large shark, circling and feeding for quite a while. Maybe he ate all the fish. Ha! A trip to St Vincent proved to be just as bad. We had hoped to do a little hiking there but the mosquitos were too bad to do so. We did however find some good shells. The last day was spent on a fishing charter which did produce a couple triple tail and red fish. Dinner was wonderful that night! The mosquitos seemed to have gotten worse towards the end of the week, something that couldn't be helped.

As someone who loves to cook, I found the kitchen very well equipped. The pantry was large enough to visibly store a week's worth of food. Most meals were grilled at the house but we also enjoyed local fare.

Beach was easily accessible, just a short walk across the street. Surf was too rough for the little one but the teens enjoyed the waves. Perfect though for relaxing, walking, sunning, shelling.

This is not the place to go if you want to be entertained and to party. That was the main reason we chose Indian Pass. Our time was mainly spent enjoying precious time with kids and grandkids. Especially liked sitting on the front porch late at night, feeling the ocean breeze and marveling at the star studded night sky. Ideal for letting cares of hectic lives slip away if only for a short time.

Sorry to leave.

Highly recommend for those who are seeking relaxing vacation with family or friends Hope to return someday, maybe a different time of year for better fishing and hiking.

WORST PLACE TO RENT

  • 1 of 5

THIS IS THE WORST PLACE TO RENT IN PORT ST JOE THE OWNER WAS DOWN RIGHT RUDE AND LIED ABOUT EVERYTHING IN HIS AD . THE TOILETS OVER FLOWED AND THE ICE MACHINE WAS BROKEN AND HE REFUSED TO HAVE ANYTHING FIXED . THE BEACH IS A LONG WALK FROM THE HOUSE AND THE LAGOON IN THE BACK YOU CAN'T EVEN GET A BOAT IN THERE IT IS ONLY LIKE 6 INCHES DEEP SO IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A FAMILY FRIENDLY PLACE TO VACATION THIS IS NOT IT !!!!

Owner's Response: Jack’s Gulls is very sorry to hear you did not enjoy your stay. We strive to make every guest’s stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. We address issues as they are reported. The secondary ice machine repair was scheduled the day it was reported and was repaired later in the week. Jack’s Gulls sits on 2 acres, the walk to the beach is approximately 175 feet. Golf cart rental is available. The lagoon is tide dependent.
