The location and room
Jamie G. Dec 2022
I have stayed in this family home for the past 5 years. I love the house and the friendly town! It is not a tourist escape! It is laid back and immediate relaxation! Great food all around!
Wallace W. Oct 2022
Well stocked home and amazing beach!
Lisa O. Oct 2022
Our family loved the rustic feel of this beach house. It was perfect for our family and our dog. The deck is great and children/dogs can't get off the deck. The back door is only way out - so that was a plus! Beds where comfortable and kitchen had all the necessities. Ice maker not working - but bagged ice was fine for us. Confusion on when the trash pick up is - one sign in house says Monday/Friday - however we called the maintenance/help line and they said Saturday pick up. All good though! Quiet area and we felt we had the whole beach to ourselves!
Corrine B. Oct 2022
Definitely love the beach right there and it’s not crowded.
Jennifer S. Jul 2022
The location was perfect for a relax and unwind vacation. From the photos, I thought it was 70’s paneling, but when we got there it is actually wood planking floor to ceiling for a rustic charm that just feels incredibly cozy! The beds were really comfortable and we found everything we needed.
Jessica M. Jul 2022
First off what a perfect location!! The house is older needs some repairs. The appliances need to be replaced. The refrigerator doors do not stay closed and the oven takes a bit to heat. The toaster will not stay down, you have to hold it. The bed linens need replaced the sheets have pillings on them. Saying all that, we will return and bring our own bed linens. This was a wonderful family vacation and we made lifelong memories.
Manager response:

Additionally, we have passed your feedback along to our local management to consider and review for future upgrades and additions! We hope to host you again soon!

We really enjoyed the As Pelicans Pass home. It was spacious, clean and comfortable. We were so excited to see it sat right on the beach and had an amazing ocean view. The most relaxing, peaceful beach trip we've taken in a long time. It is located between two must sees: Cape San Blas and the historic town of Apalachicola. We will be back!
Madeline B. Apr 2022
The house was well located on the beach. It was very clean. The only drawback was that the appliances were dated and the ice maker did not work. We would stay there again.
Rhett G. Mar 2022
Our family loved our stay, and would stay here again. Great location and beach, quiet area, and love that it is close to the Indian Pass Raw Bar.
Carlyn B. Mar 2022
Once again we had a great time staying at As Pelicans Pass. It was spotlessly clean when we arrived, the only things lacking were filters for the coffee maker, which we picked up at the little grocery store just a short drive away.

We love this cosy beach house and feel so at home. We hope we can stay here again!
Tammy A. Mar 2022
We have stayed at As Pelicans Pass several times now and will return again. It is the perfect size house for us. It's in a great location, just a mile from the IP Raw Bar. We've come different times of the year and the beach is never crowded. The house is dog friendly which is also why we love it, but it never smells of dogs. The kitchen is well stocked and the new deck is incredible.

What a great house and location. Our family stayed there for 10 days and did not want to leave. The access to the beach is perfect. Highly recommend it and we will be returning. The only problem we had was figuring out how to work the TVs. If the world series was not on we would have never looked at the TV. There is a brand new grill, new steps on the front of the house, and a second TV in the master bedroom.
Shirley B. Sep 2021
This property needs a lot of work and some intense cleaning! We found roaches all over the house. When we arrived we found the bedding dirty. One pillowcase had blood on it! The stairs leading up to the door is dangerous with loose boards and cracking wood! Had problems with the air conditioning the entire trip. The AC vents drip with condensation bad and even was dripping on the master bed enough it got wet. This also causes a really bad musty smell in the house. I would never recommend this property to anyone with the shape it’s in at this time!! We will never use this company again!!
Manager response:
Hi, Shirley! We are sorry you were unhappy with your stay. This home is sprayed monthly and usually has no problem with roaches. The air conditioner does drip with condensation when it is running but windows and/or doors are being left open. We wish you had called about the bedding so we could have addressed it for you. Hopefully we can impress you in the future!
Melinda C. Jul 2021
Beautiful view of the ocean from most rooms! 😎 Front porch loaded with nice seating to enjoy the ocean. All appliances were good. Could use a little updating to brighten up the inside (feels a bit like a cabin) but very nice vacation home! ❤️
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, Melinda! We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed the home. We have shared your suggestions regarding updates needed with the local manager who will work with the homeowner to make any necessary upgrades. We hope to have the opportunity to host you again soon!

Great beach house!!!! Love the layout and wood.
Ruthie D. May 2021
Our family loved our visit to "as pelicans pass". Perfect location and beautiful home.
Wendy O. Apr 2021
Comfortable house, great location, great view!
Carlyn B. Mar 2021
We had a wonderful time at As Pelicans Pass. We loved being right on the beach. The beds were comfortable, we had plenty of towels, and the kitchen was well stocked with dishes, cookware, etc. There is even a crockpot! The furniture in the living room is comfortable and we liked the decor. The boardwalk down to the beach is very well made. We will definitely plan to stay here again.
Wynn & Steve M. Oct 2020
The house is lovely and spacious! It is decorated beautifully with a fully stocked kitchen! The management company was very attentive and when we reported a small repair need it was taken care of in just hours!
I will always come back to Pelicans Pass!
Staci P. Sep 2020
Super clean and comfortable beach house. We loved how short of a walk it was to the beach and having its own boardwalk. Kitchen was fully stock and all the appliances worked great. Very quiet beach, and close to Indian pass raw bar which was great. We will definitely be back!
Bill F. Aug 2020
Loved the a beach access
Thomas R. Jul 2020
The house was great and had everything we needed. It is super close to the water and the beach was very quiet. The general store and delicious seafood were just a short walk or drive away. Awesome spot.
Jamie G. Jun 2020
There is no place I'd rather be! This is my 5th summer at the house.
Allen W. Jun 2020
Great place! Door code didn't work but it was overall good
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Allen. We are glad you enjoyed this home and apologize for any trouble with the access code. We will work with our local team to ensure this is corrected for future guests. We hope to host you again in the near future!
Nicholas M. Jun 2020
There where several loose spindles on the deck and my 15 month old nearly fell off the deck because of it, also an open electrical box near the shower at ground level. I called the customer service line to get the spindles fixed and sat on hold for over an hour before giving up. I emailed the customer service contact and still haven't gotten a response (it's been 2 weeks). I would not use this rental agency, they do not seem to care about maintenance and safety.
Manager response:
Nicholas, thank you for sharing your review. We have given your feedback to the local staff so that they may review and address any issues in the home. We apologize that you weren't able to get ahold of us.The current events have lead to an unprecedented volume of calls and messages from our guests, which has posed significant delays in our communication. We are happy to report that we have added several new team members and reworked our phone system to help us ensure guests receive prompt assistance.

We enjoyed our stay so much at As Pelicans Pass! Beautifully decorated and comfortable - especially the beds. We all slept well and had a wonderful time. Very roomy and big kitchen and deck. Will definitely return someday.
GAIL W. Jan 2020
Great place, amazing beach.
Monica M. Jan 2020
We loved our stay! The house is very comfortable, clean, and the kitchen was fully stocked. The upgraded bathrooms were very nice with long solid surface counters. The handrails on the boardwalk to the beach were especially useful since my elderly mother was with us. If we had one request it would be to have TVs in the bedrooms. Thank you!
Gregory H. Jan 2020
This house has such a warm, charming feel to it in the photographs. I was hoping all that warmth and charm would be apparent as we arrived and moved in for the week, and it more than remained. The great room in the center feels like home, and the separation of bedrooms/ bathrooms is a great arrangement. Beach access is wonderful and the area was great. I cherish every trip to the Cape and Indian Pass and am happy to add this house to the list of happy places!
William R. Dec 2019
We loved our stay at As Pelicans Pass. It’s a beautiful home right on the beach. Everything we could have needed was there and the management company is excellent. The beds were comfy and the bathrooms were very nice - the kitchen was equipped too. Thanks!
Daniel I. Nov 2019
Very nice and clean home right on the beach! It had everything we we needed. Our dogs enjoyed laying on the porch sunning. We loved it and can’t wait to go back. Thank you for a great get away!
Kathy M. Nov 2019
Love relaxing at the beach
Jeannie T. Sep 2019
My husband and I really enjoyed this house with it's floorpan all on one level. Some of the new ones have multiple levels. The beach was beautiful and there was hardly anyone there. We didn't cook but the kitchen was loaded with all you would need to cook. Would definitely stay again. Next time will take a beach umbrella because the sun can be intense on the deck in the middle of the day. There are pots there for an umbrella and a table that will hold one also.
Jessica B. Jun 2019
We stayed there for a week. It was lovely and the view was supreme. The only thing I didn’t like is the top deck didn’t have a way to the boardwalk to the beach. Has everything you need and we’ll deff go back again!!!
Lisa W. Jun 2019
Great beach view, lots of dolphins, well appointed kitchen. Loved the deck. The sears we always in the shade.
Steve R. May 2019
Porch view very clean and everthing you needed
Wendy O. Apr 2019
The beauties of the Gulf, somewhat tinged with sadness for those continuing to suffer from Michael.
Jamie G. Dec 2017
I loved it - I was by my self - I slept when I wanted and at e when I wanted - It was very relaxing and it's just what I needed!
Andy B. Oct 2017
We always look forward to returning to Indian Pass to relax and enjoy the beautiful beach. We are returning next year.
Kathy M. Sep 2017
We love coming to Indian Pass each year. Our dog enjoys chasing the seagulls. Early morning walks are peaceful and beautiful sunsets in the evening make this the perfect place.
Jamie G. Jun 2017
I had been stressed in my personal and professional life, I came to As Pelican's Pass and need that time alone. The beach was beautiful and the town is so friendly. I will be back!
Heather S. Jun 2017
Absolutely wonderful and will return!!
Calvin C. May 2017
Great vacation home, and great fishing off the beach. My son caught a 60 pound Black Drum right in front of the house. We will be back.
Ricky H. Jul 2016
Other than having some rainy weather the stay was really nice being right on the beach. It was like having your own personal beach area, not crowded at all. I would recommend staying here to anyone.
Patty G. Jun 2016
very good location,lots of things to do
Dawn W. May 2016
A very comfortable beach house on a beautiful beach. Our dogs are very welcome here and they all had a wonderful time playing with the on the beach as well. The short boardwalk to the beach has railings on both sides which was wonderful for my sister who is disabled be able to get to the beach on her own. We saw dolphins every day and took long relaxing walks on Indian Pass every day as well. The house is perfectly designed for beach living and is well maintained and stocked with all that you need. We love the place and will be back!
