Holiday Rental House
COASTAWHILE is our beautiful 3B/R, 2.5BA home on the Gulf of Mexico. Here you can experience breathtaking sunsets and starry, moonlit nights while relaxing on the wraparound porch overlooking our secluded beach. A mere 50 feet from our door, you can enjoy wide, private, and pristine beaches where everyday offers sightings of many more dolphins than people. Stroll or jog along our wide, flat beach as you watch pelicans, seagulls, and even the occasional eagle dive into the surf in search of that perfect seafood repast. You may also choose to build sandcastles by day and bonfires by night, where the quest for the world's greatest S'mores is never ending.

Also included for your enjoyment is a complimentary Family Fun Pass EACH DAY for an 18 hole round of golf AND a deep sea Gulf of Mexico fishing excursion AND horseback riding on the beach AND unlimited DVD rentals. EACH DAY of your visit. Also, a Beach Equipment pass is included and you can have bicycles, kayaks, beach chaiirs, etc delivered to you. If you love to fish but don't choose a deep sea or Gulf excursion, you may choose to bring your own boat and launch it from the Indian Pass Campground public ramp just a mile from our home. Surf fishing from right in front of the house is a relaxing and productive (sometime) pastime which many of us enjoy. Local charters for bay fishing are also available. NEW IN 2015: Enjoy your favorite TV shows and videos on our brand new 55' flat screen Smart HD television in our main living area, a 46' flat screen in the master B/R, and 40' flat screens in both upstairs bedrooms! Also available is High Speed Wireless Internet. Sleep comfortably on the king sized, sleep number adjustable mattress in the master befroom as well as queen sized beds in the other two bedrooms. The two futon bed mattresses are newly replaced in January, 2015. Gulf vistas are magnificent from all first floor areas. Explore St. Vincent's National Wildlife Refuge two miles away, and enjoy St. Joseph's State Park , which was named America's Best Beach in 2002 and just named America's Best State Park for 2012. We also welcome the well behaved canine members of your family. Indian Pass is one of the most PET FRIENDLY beaches in Florida. We ask that the owners match the good behavior of your dogs by cleaning up after them on the beach. For a virtual tour of Coastawhile and to see visitor reviews, please visit us at Pristine Properties Vacation Rentals /Coastawhile. We know that you will enjoy our home as much as we do. We invite you to come COASTAWHILE with us . We are proud to offer MILITARY, SENIOR CITIZEN, AND RETURN GUEST DISCOUNTS. RECENT GUEST COMMENTS: Oct-Nov, 2014: 'Sun, surf,salt water, shrimp, waves, warmth, wings, walking.... Imagine seeing three eaagles soaring down to the beach and one perching on top of a sand castle. The peace and relaxation we find at Coastawhile each time we return is priceless. We love especially the magnificent view from the gathering room and the spacious porch where we watch the dolphins, fishing boats, pelicans, butterflies, and folks walking their dogs.' Nancy from TN October, 2014: We got married on the beach here on 10/20/2014 and stayed in Coastawhile for our honeymoon. We loved sitting on the deck and being able to view sunrises and sunsets. We also loved having a bonfire almost every night down on the beach.' Terri September, 2014: We all had a great time at Coastawhile. It's a beautiful spot and the water is so warm. Enjoyed eating lots of seafood, a bonfire on the beach, grilling out, and relaxing in the hot tub. Sad to say goodbye, but hopefully this is the first of many trips. Thanks again for this great place.' Lauren from Knoxville July, 2014: Thank you for the privilege of staying in your beautiful beach home. Everything was perfect, from the decorations and paintings to the fabulous front porch overlooking the Gulf. This truly was a memorable vacation and we hope to return again with our extended family next year.' Mary J. from Indianapolis June, 2014: 'This is our 4th time at Coastawhile and every time it just gets better!! Last year we went to Tybee and quickly realized our mistake and immediately made reservations for this year at Coastawhile!' Lynn from Georgia May, 2014: 'We love your house and have stayed here before. Our dog loves the beach and playing in the ocean....' Amanda from AL Maarch, 2014: 'Our stay down here has been GREAT and full of fun. You have a beautiful home and a wonderful view. Thanks for the great experience.'PJ fro IN More

The air conditioner quit working for a day and a half, but Pristine Property Rental Mgmt. diligently contacted repairmen, who fixed the problem. The beach was wonderful, and so was the house. We stayed for two weeks, and we would have liked to stay longer....More

About the neighbourhood
We are located on Indian Pass Peninsula halfway between Port St. Joe and Apalachicola, Florida. We are on the southernmost tip of the panhandle of Florida and our closest neighbor to the south is Honduras. This area of Florida is often referred to as the Forgotten Coast of Florida and described as 'Old Florida Style'. No condos, no roller coasters, just a very laid back getaway haven to a beautiful beach.
