We enjoyed our stay at A Wise Way! It was in a perfect location, so close to the ocean! Perfect for our family fun vacation.
Jessie R. Jun 2020
My wife, 4 kids and our dog had the best, most relaxing vacation that we’ve had in years. The beach house gave us the perfect view and access to the beach. We even saw several dolphins on our last day there.

We will definitely be back next year!

New stairs, private low density beaches, unbeatable views.

A Wise Way is a wonderful home! It is Clean, Well Decorated and has a fully stocked Kitchen! The Beach is very quiet with Dolphins playing in the surf almost daily! All the beds are comfortable. We will definitely be back!

Great place, good for boating, sailing, fishing. Great neighbors, quiet and dog friendly.

But the pestering by Vacasa was frustrating and unnecessary
Manager response:
We are happy that you enjoyed your stay. We typically make a check-in call to make sure you are happy in the unit. We hope you will stay again soon!

The house is very nice! Lots of extras in the kitchen including a kitchenaid mixer! The only thing we did not like was the walk out to the beach. No railings, but the steps are too tall , narrow and Steep. The sand had probably washed away from the bottom step, but the other steps were just too tall! I had to use the neighbors walk. . Especially on the water side. The house was clean and the beds were comfy!
we have been looking for a new winter Florida vacation spot. I think we have found the right area east of Port St Joe. There were a few other dog lovers on the beach which made our walks sociable but not overly so. The Wise Way house was adequate. The bathrooms were a little small but bigger than those on a cruise ship. The house was very clean and well finished. There seems to be a problem with the A/C. The owner says that if the thermostat is set lower than 72 the unit will freeze-up. It was cool enough in January that we did not test that. There is a new walkway to the beach. The top step on the beach end has an extremely short tread which makes it dangerous. The house itself is just starting to show its age and needs some work. It`s a little far to the good restaurants in Port St Joe or Apalachicola.

Very comfortable, clean, and casual beach house right on the water!
Monica M. Nov 2019
We stayed here for the second time with our dog and loved it. They put in all new floors since the last time we were here. It’s located right on the beach and the house is comfortable and well appointed. We wanted for nothing. Can’t wait to return!

My husband and I loved this place! This stretch of beach is secluded and private. Just what we needed. The house is not updated but this did not bother us at all. It has everything you need in the well equipped kitchen and the bed was very comfy. We loved the porch overlooking the beach and spent hours there over coffee in the morning and wine and snacks in the evening watching the sun set. This is a good size house for two couples or a family of four. We can't wait to got back.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at A Wise Way. It's location is ideal; very quiet and not crowded at all! We saw dolphins playing every day just off the shore. We used the large deck very often. Saw some beautiful sunsets from the deck. I would definitely rent this house again.
Monica M. Jun 2019
We stayed here with our dog and LOVED it. It was absolutely perfect for us. The beach is beautiful, the house is fully stocked. We felt at home and comfortable as soon as we opened the door. We can't wait to visit again!!
Jennifer H. Jun 2019
We love staying at Indian Pass because the beaches are so beautiful and secluded. This was our first time staying in a home directly on the beach and we loved it! We had dolphins that visited several times a day and shells everywhere. The home was clean and efficient and easy to book. We will be back!
Paula K. Apr 2019

Always a pleasure to stay at A Wise Way. Perfect location on a beautiful beach that's dog friendly and never crowded. Street is very accessible and quiet. Wonderful view from great room and two bedrooms. Furnishings and linens are perfectly chosen for a house on the beach. Lots of space in beach house below to store your sandy chairs, etc.

My Family and I found our stay a wonderful experience! From the initial rental of the property, check in and stay, was easy and enjoyable! The staff we felt with at check was extremely helpful, informative and friendly! The beach was beautiful, not too busy and very relaxing! We played in the water, walked the beach in the day and night! Wonderful area to vacation!!! Very family and pet friendly!!! The home was convenient with necessary items to make our stay comfortable for cooking, sleeping and relaxing! We watched the Dolphins and Pelicans almost every morning from our deck! The location is perfect!!! We would highly recommend this location to friends and family! We will return in the future for another stay!! Thank you so much for a fantastic vacation!!!

Wonderful overall experience.

We had a wonderful time at A Wise Way. It has a great location. The beach was steps away and beautiful. The house was clean and neat.

We stayed at A Wise Way on Indian Pass beach. It is the fourth time we have stayed in that particular house. I love everything about it. The location is great, just in between Port St Joe and Apalachicola. There are many things to do and see in both places. The food in the area is magnificent. We really enjoy all the seafood in the area, Toucan's, Triple Tails, Indian Pass Raw Bar, all good places to eat. Apalachicola has tons of shops and art to enjoy and Port St Joe has all you need in the way of supplies. There are miles of beach, and no crowds. My three dogs had plenty of sun and fun with their Mama. The house itself is very comfortable with three bedrooms, cable, and a full kitchen. I will be back next year to my home away from home.
