Whispering Palms

Guest Rating:

Vacation rental house. Sleeps 12, 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms. Dogs allowed.

Indian Pass, FL 32456 United States

GULF VIEW HOME ON INDIAN PASS



Whispering Palms is brand new to a rental program (2012) and has all brand new furnishings, bedding and appliances. The private pool along with a short walk to the beach make this a perfect home for all Indian Pass enthusiasts.



On the main level of Whispering Palms you will find your kitchen/living and dining area as well as 2 bedrooms. The kitchen is well appointed with new stainless steel appliances and has everything needed to cook for a group of 12...and then some. This part of the home looks out towards the ocean and the private pool. There is plenty of deck space on both the front and back of this home with chairs and tables on both sides. There are also many kids books and games to pass the "I gotta get out of the sun"



There are 2 bedrooms on this level. Bedroom #1 has two bunk beds so the room sleeps 4. There is also a full bathroom in the hallway of this bedroom. A bit further down the hallway is bedroom #2 which has 2 twin beds. This bedroom also has a T.V. in it.



On the next level of the home you will find Bedroom #3 and #4. Both considered the Masters as they have their own full bathrooms and beautiful views of the beach with private entrance to the decks. Both of these rooms come equipped with a T.V.



The pool area has plenty of chairs and loungers for your use. There is a gas grill and an outside shower and hose.


If you are looking to get away from crowded beaches and want a relaxing vacation, Indian Pass is for you! It is the "Old Florida"; one of the most beautiful coastal areas in Gulf County.


Enjoy bonfires roasting marshmallows and hot dogs while gazing the stars. Walking and collecting shells on virtually secluded shores. Saint Vincent's Refuge, a National Wildlife Reserve, is two miles away. Ride horses on the beach at Cape San Blas, a five minute drive, and see St. Joseph's Peninsula State Park voted top beaches in 2002 just 10 minutes away.



Please come and stay here and see if you can hear the "WHISPERING PALMS!"

    a guest from Arrington, TN does not recommend this vacation rental.

    I have stayed at this house for 3 years in a row and it has gone steadily downhill. The house inside and outside needs a really, really deep cleaning. The bathtubs need some serious updating, the house needs to deep cleaned, we were missing lots of lightbulbs (half in the master bath were out), missing batteries in the remote, door knobs were falling off, the pool was never cleaned and got yucky after the big storm, and the exterior needs a serious power washing and cleaning.

    The location and distance to the beach is very nice. The private pool is a good size but it was never serviced during our week. The view is good.

    The 4 stars on ques. 3 relates to the need for a cupboard to hold groceries. There was no pace in the kitchen cabinets for storage. Another suggestion would be a more narow dining table. Was hard for people to get by when kds were eating at bar.. But it is a pleasing, nicely decorated hoyse..great fun.

    Overall this was a beautiful home in a perfect location. The beach was never crowded. The pool was lovely. The only problems we encountered were the bathtubs needed updating. They were stained and had mold around the edges. The master bathtub had cracked with a poor repair. Some of the carpet was stained.

    • Manager Responded on 8/9/2016

      Thanks for the feedback. We plan on getting those tubs repaired/replaced after the summer rush! UPDATE: bathtubs have been repaired and should not have the issues this guest experienced. (02/17)

    a guest from Evansville, IN recommends this vacation rental

    Great house, great location. Clean, fully stocked. Loved all the games and movies. Needed a few more towels and washcloths. Ice maker did not work but was fixed by day 4 of our week long stay. Drain clogged in upstairs bathroom was fixed promptly. Bed sheets did not fit properly, fitted sheets too small. downstairs beds "crunchy" and not very comfortable. Twin beds bolted to floor so this was a negative, had planned to push those together!Decks have beautiful view, pool small but clean and love that it was fenced in and large patio attached. Picnic table was great. Living room TV had a great picture. Nice appliances. Overall great place minus no ice and needs new sheets!

    The house wasn't as clean as the ones we have stayed in before. Also in the description it said the pool guy would come at the 1st of the week and he never did and by the end of our stay the pool was cloudy and dirty. But other than that our stay was great and the landscaping around the house was beautiful. Loved the screened in porch. We spent alot of time out there.

    This is our 5th trip to the Forgotten Coast. We love the area, the beach, the restaurants, and the opportunity to escape, at least for a week.

    If you are seeking a fast paced vacation, with lots of outside activities, this is not the place for you.

    If you are looking to get away from the hustle-bustle of life, then this is the area for you.

    We plan to return to the area next year.

    Ashley J from Indianapolis, Indiana does not recommend this vacation rental.

    The house was an okay rental, but I don't think we would select this house again in the future. There was construction on one of the homes in front of us. The dumpster was parked right in front of the boardwalk entrance forcing us to walk under scaffolding and other debris. The home didn't seem to be that clean when we arrived. The entrance had dirt and grime on the walls up the stairs. The kitchen counter had a dirty film on it. The bedroom on the top floor had a live scorpion that fell from decorative pillows upon arrival. We called the rental office 4 days in a row to try and get the exterminator to come. Finally, after 4 days, the exterminator company showed up. We were unable to use that bedroom for our entire stay out of fear of other scorpions were there. On a positive note, the beach was beautiful and not crowded.

    a guest from Woodstock, GA recommends this vacation rental

    We love the entire beach area of Indian Pass and the Whispering Palms home is "the cherry on top". This area and home is private, quiet and safe.

    If you need traffic noise, tons of people around, tons of options to shop and eat than this area of FL is NOT for you. But if you prefer a great home where the beaches are where you can leave your beach chairs out all week where no one bothers them, have no beach crowds, always quiet along with simply having fun with your family than this is YOUR place.

    The home is one of the cleanest and best we've ever stayed in. Please, if you stay here DON'T trash it! We love this house! It has everything you need, fully furnished in every way. Just bring your family, food and your dog and you're set!

    Please note - If your family needs to go out to dinner every night or hang out in bars every night your options are limited unless you want to drive 25+ minutes one way.

    However, Apalachicola - is a great place only 20 minutes away with tons of great shops and restaurant's. We make it a point to visit at least once during our trip.

    Dawn R from Seymour, IN recommends this vacation rental

    The view, beach, and pool were amazing. The house could use a ceiling to floor deep cleaning along with the screens/deck. The regular cleaning was fine the bathrooms, beds etc were clean. Loved the tile floor but it amplified our young childrens' voices especially in the stair wells! I think people should should know both masters are up 2 sets of stairs. It was not a problem for us but could be for some. Very quiet safe area, the stingrays moved in mid week so we headed to a public beach access on the cape and it was perfect. The screened in porch was awesome we ate out there all the time!

    • Manager Responded on 7/9/2014

      Thank you for your feedback. The house was deep cleaned, bleached and painted not too long before your stay, but we will look into what you may be referring to.

    We have dealt with Coastal Joe for the past four years and been extremely pleased with all aspects of their services, responsiveness and quick communication. All members of the staff are very pleasant, helpful and cooperative, particularly Suzy Kelly.
    Ms Kelly directed us to this unit, which they had just taken over, during our 2013 stay on Cape San Blas. On visiting the unit we did not hesitate to agree to rent it for five weeks in 2014. Our 2014 stay was excellent and the unit lived up to all expectations from our initial visit. Within three days of our arrival this year, we signed for a similar period in 2015.

    "Whispering Palms" is located in a quiet, very pretty wooded surrounding, one of four very similar units on their own access lane. The Indian Pass area is far more protected from the weather than much of the Cape, albeit the extensive, almost empty at this time of year, several miles of beach, is not quite as white and the ocean often not as clear. While it is first tier, it has very fine views of the ocean from both main bedrooms on the third floor and the living area on the second floor. The unit is tastefully furnished and decorated, well maintained and very well equipped with all necessities and many extras. Its ground and the pool area are also well maintained and very appealing. Friends familiar with the area and family that visited were all impressed with the area, the unit and its location. Overall, a very comfortable and thoroughly enjoyable stay indeed!

    We are already looking forward to next year.

    a guest from West Point, GA recommends this vacation rental

    The house has a perfect location, great water view, a great pool for the kids/grandkids with firepits for making smores. The toys/games in the bunkroom kept them entertained when the rain showers came through. We really needed an extra bedroom but would stay here again because it was so nice--not just your average sterile rental house. Cleaning crew could have been more thorough since they allow pets but I guess this is because of quick turnaround on check-out/check-in day. House does not have a king bed as listed--both upstairs are queens. Part of screen on upstairs deck is missing but it seemed to be high enough that mosquitos weren't a problem. All in all, we had a great week and everyone was sad to leave on Sat. Would definitely rent from Coastal Joe again.

    Dietmar D from Woodstock, GA recommends this vacation rental

    We love places where things are peaceful and laid back. I love beaches where you can leave your tents and chairs out all night/all week and no one messes with them. I also love beaches where you may see no more than 20 people in the course of a day, just enough privacy.

    The area is called "Florida's forgotten coast" I hope it stays that way. I guess I should give it a rating of 1 star so that it stays that way. :)

    Just remember this laid back atomosphere is not for everyone and comes at a price for some. The nearest decent grocery store, shops, etc. are 20 minutes away. You just have to know this and prepare and plan. You can always get ice, simple foods, cold beer and other basics close by.

    We will keep coming back if they'll have us. We love it.

    We loved the privacy of the beach. We really liked that we could leave our shade tent and chairs on the beach all week and nothing was messed with. What a pleasant change from other crowded beaches where we had to drag everything on and off the beach everyday.
    The entire Indian Pass area was laid back and the people were very nice - when you actually ran into someone they were more then helpful.
    Great area for fishing as well, if you're into that, we had plenty to do besides fishing but it was another great thing to spend time doing with the kids.
    The State Parks in the area is another great secret, what a beautiful park with so many things to do and see it's too much for just one day.
    We're going back for sure - exactly what we liked, secluded, away from crowds - high rises - condo's - two million restaurants none worth eating in, etc.
    If you like a slow laid back atomsphere with beautiful wide beaches and plenty of room to breath this is the area - if you need noise or to do some shopping you can drive 15 minutes East or West to Port Saint Joe or Apalachicola.
