setting, tastefully decorated, located on the tip of Indian Pass.
Indian Pass, which is a three mile long peninsula, is located at the extreme west end of Apalachicola Bay
where it flows into the Gulf of Mexico. This merging of fresh and
saltwater makes one the most fertile estuarine areas of the world.
While the area was settled by Native Americans for thousands of
years and then again by the early European explorers modern
civilization has conveniently skipped us over.
Long Known as Florida's "Forgotten Coast" most of the inhabitants
here have fins or feathers. No high rises or motels but miles of
unspoiled beaches, succulent oysters, world class fishing and
spectacular sunsets. Beachcombers are greeted by miles of shells,
fossilized shark teeth and pottery shards from our earliest
All the food and supplies you will need to enjoy your vacation on the Pass can be
bought in either Port St. Joe or Apalachicola. Both small towns have their own
unique charm, with many restaurants, git shops, antique stores, and art galleries.
This comfortable two-bedroom, two bath retreat offers lots of
privacy in a natural setting just steps (230 ft.) from the beach.
Wrap-around deck with chairs and a slight view of Indian Lagoon, lots of
wildlife, and great birding. Take the St. Vincent shuttle across the Pass to explore
St. Vincent's Island. Once there, you can hike the trails, keeping watch for the many
different birds and animals that inhabit the primitive Island.
Bring your kayaks, canoes, binoculars, and camera. The Island has over 240
species of birds, including bald eagles, oyster catchers, snowy plovers, osprey,
great egrets, and herons, to name a few. It also has bats, sea turtles, alligators,
white-tailed deer, and Sambar deer from Asia, which are elk-like, and imported
years ago. St. Vincent is also home to the very successful red wolf breeding
Excellent fishing and crabbing, shelling and long walks on miles of pristine
beach are second to none! Private, peaceful, and beautiful, are words we often
hear when describing our unique surroundings.

Reviews for this vacation cottage rental in Indian Pass, Florida
Lexington, KY USA
No view of water
October 28, 2014
Thought this cottage had a water-front view but it did not. Also, to get to the beach was extremely difficult with many steep steps that was difficult for anyone to attempt. The cottage was very clean and looked like the pictures on the ad. However, the view was much the same as I have at home, which is lots of trees and wildlife (birds and squirrels). The cottage is in desperate need of updates such as replacing mattresses and cleaning the living room furniture which had an odor. No privacy in this cottage as every word and noise could be heard throughout the cottage. The kitchen is well stocked with supplies, cookware and dishes and very clean with no site of bugs or mice. Daily outings consisted of driving to local communities and beaches and these were always delightful. Quaint restaurants with great fresh food was a plus. Would highly recommend The Owl in Apalachicola and Sisters in Port St. Joe. St. George Island was a delightful find and would like to make this a destination point in the future. The beach there was outstanding! If quiet and solitude is what you are looking for in a getaway then you won't be disappointed. If comfort is important you might want to look elsewhere.
Janis & Victor,
We had a great time staying at the Barnacle!
There is a sense of peacefulness here that cannot be shown in brochures or ads.
We came for a week and enjoyed every minute. As well, we have a new sense of appreciation for the natural things!
For our honeymoon, this was a great start to our new life together.

We've lost track how many times we've returned to the Barnacle. Clearly we love it, as do various family members who have joined us occasionally. This week our two daughters took a few days off from their hectic lives to enjoy walks on the beach, casual shopping in Apalach, with lunch at the Owl, bird watching, and reading on the deck.
Many people have said it before, and we'll repeat it: you two are perfect hosts and the Barnacle is a perfect place to be!

Dear Janis & Victor
I am so glad that we were finally able to come stay at the Barnacle. This area of Indian Pass is just beautiful and perfect here away from the hustle and bustle of other beach towns like Panama City and such. (Though they have their own charm, I'm sure).
This week went by so fast and we didn't quite get to do everything we wanted, such as visiting St. Vincent Island, but that is total fine. One more reason to come back!! And next time, with more family, as we are expecting our first child--yeah!
Thank you so much for being the nicest people to ever rent a vacation home from!
