Forty-five minutes East of Panama City, 15 minutes from Port St. Joe and 15 minutes west of Apalachicola. Please email us or call us and we can give you the best rate and explain any additional fees.

Both floors have wrap around decks with gorgeous views of the Gulf of Mexico, St.Vincent Island and Indian Pass Lagoon. Four bedrooms feature full bathrooms, three bedrooms have king size beds, the other bedroom has 2 twins beds. A special feature of this beautiful home is what we call the 'Great Room'. This giant Bedroom, located on the second-floor will be entered through Custom French doors. There are 2 bunk beds and one trundle bed (where the bed pulls out from the one above and sleeps 2) It also features a large screen TV with VCR and DVD capability as well as a Stereo, cassette, CD system. Bring the whole family because this 'Great Room' will allow 14 people to sleep comfortably in 3 Palms.

Right outside the kitchen in the screened porch there is an outdoor dining table that seats six.

The two-story wraparound decks have Gorgeous views of the Gulf of Mexico with screened in areas, as well as open areas to view the unforgettable sunsets,sunrises and star gazing. All 5 bedrooms have a private entrance to the decks, where there is plenty of comfortable deck furniture to enjoy the panoramic scenes of the Gulf of Mexico, St. Vincent Island and Indian Lagoon.

The house sits on pilings and at ground level there is covered parking with a protected entrance, a outdoor shower, a screened in fish cleaning room, a Huge Industrial Size barbecue grill, and a fenced in yard with pool and fully equipped pool/patio furniture. There is a protected shuffle board court under the carport, a Custom Made Horseshoe pit and assorted outdoor games, as well.

The first floor consists of a large open living room and dining room, kitchen with island, powder room, and 2 bedrooms with baths. The second floor has two bedrooms with full bathrooms and the 'Great Room' for the kids.

We provide all linens and towels. You may want to bring extra beach towels.

While 3 PALMS is classified as a first-tier gulf View home, the huge beach at Indian Pass begins 30 ft. from the driveway. Here you will find one of the largest and widest beaches anywhere in the Cape San Blas area.

Famous St. Vincent Island is in plain view from both the house and the beach.

Because of the unique topographic features of Indian Pass Beach there are many different spots to choose from. You can hang out right next to the water or you can protect yourself in the cooler months between the natural sand dunes. You literally can walk the beach for miles. Indian Pass is one

of the more popular bird watching areas in the country. Not to mention the almost daily sightings of dolphins frolicking in the water.

Bring your boats, your wave runner, your kayak, a sailboat, or rent one. There is a boat launch less than 1 mile away from 3 PALMS at the Indian Pass campground.

Here you can also stock up on supplies for fishing or snacking. St. Vincent is less than a quarter of a mile away by ferry from the Indian Pass Campground. You can rent bikes here, take the ferry across the channel and explore one of the most beautiful nature preserves found anywhere . Of course you can walk all over the island and fish or swim in total seclusion. Cars are not permitted.

Speaking of FISHING, Indian Pass has some of the best fishing you'll find anywhere. Indian pass is bordered on the East by Indian Pass Lagoon, a shallow waterbed full of many varieties of fish and home to the famous Indian Pass oyster beds. The Gulf is on the west side, and I personally have caught eight different kinds of species of fish. At the tip of Indian Pass, by the campground, there is a waterway that comes from the confluence of the Apalachicola River and Bay that goes out to the Gulf. St. Vincent Island is on the other side of this passageway. This is an ideal fishing spot because of the travel patterns of the fish feeding and going out to the Gulf. This is particularly fantastic when the breezes are high out on the gulf.

So when you leave the drive way of 3 PALMS you can turn right and enter the beach to fish or you could take a left and walk 1/4 mile to the Indian Pass Lagoon and fish, or go to the campground, and fish the protected channel. Indian Pass offers an extremely unique and diversified fishing experience, well suited for the many varieties of fish, in any kind of weather condition. The screened in fish cleaning room located at ground level is perfect for preparing your freshly caught delicacy.

If and when you get tired of fishing in this wonderful little community you can always pick up a guide and go fishing in St. Joe Bay. Presnell’s Harbor is 10 minutes away and they can fix you up with a guide, the equipment, including license, and find some great action in the bay. They will clean your catch as well, 4 hours cost $100, or so. Want to go deep Sea fishing? See link for some of the greatest deep sea fishing ever. During the season (summer) grab a bucket and go pick scallops yourself. Check out Dead Lakes, check out the Apalachicola River, where 6 rivers come together and create the greatest oyster bed in the world. The Indian Pass compound is a very quiet family oriented, people friendly place. Where you can walk the tiny neighborhood and kids can even ride their bikes. It has a very special ambiance and solitude, amidst a very, very unique opportunity to be one with nature.

A must place to eat is the world famous Indian Pass Raw Oyster Bar. Located less than a mile from 3 PALMS at C-30 and Indian Pass Road. You can't miss it, is the old dilapidated rundown gas station. Don't be deceived however; they have some of the best and freshest oysters, shrimp, crap and jambalaya you'll ever taste. You can get food to go here as well. Got more friends or family coming? Have them camp at the campground or stay at the Turtle Beach Inn located on Indian Pass Road. A wonderful bed and breakfast right on the gulf.

St. Joseph Peninsula State Park. is just minutes away from 3 PALMS and has wonderful

opportunities for fishing, surfing, snorkeling, kayaking, hiking and just plain relaxing at the #1 rated beach in the Continental U.S. for 2002 .

    Large, well stocked, close to beach

    We stayed at 3 Palms for 7 nights over the Christmas/New Year Holidays. There were 2 families, each with 4 people, including 4 teenagers. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the weather wasn't great, but that didn't keep the kids out of the ocean! We found the kitchen to be well appointed, containing everything that we needed to cook our meals. The rooms were ample, and quite comfortable. We spent most of our time in the living/dining area together, playing cards and games and watching movies. The wifi is spotty and cell reception isn't the greatest, but that was told to us prior to our trip, and we managed just fine. The owners were fantastic, they were responsive leading up to the trip, and checked in with us to make sure that all was well while we were there. We definitely plan to return!!

    Great place for extended family vacation.

    My wife and I try to take are 3 children and their families to a family vacation every other year. This is 4 couples and 5 grandchildren. 3 Palms was the perfect fit. 4 bedrooms with a private bathroom and one huge bedroom for the 5 kids. The grandchildren loved this room; great for kids. The beach is closer then it looks in the pictures and Jim the manager is great. Very good customer service. The best place that we have ever stayed at and are planning to go back Jack Phipps

    Great family spot

    Three Palms is a great spot for a large family vacation. Having the private pool and shuffle board at the house was great and we played every day. Only our family and two others were all we could see on the beach-- so nice for having kids with you. Felt like we had a private beach. Peter, Kitty and Candy were all so helpful and checked in on us during our stay to ensure all was well. Would recommend this place to anyone looking for a low key spot for a family vacation. Would stay again!

    Spring Break

    We had a big group, and though we filled every bed, we never felt cramped or crowded. Kitchen is stocked with every utensil and appliance you could ever need. The location is PERFECT! It’s as if we were the only ones on the beach, and easily walked there multiple times a day, everyday we stayed (with little ones and all their baggage in tow.) You cannot beat the ocean view on the multiple patios! Wish the pool was heated, but otherwise, we had the perfect stay and will definitely be back again.

    A Most Amazing Vacation Stay!

    Vacation of 2020 was fantastic! Three Palms was the most wonderful place for vacation this year. The house was clean and inviting. It was the perfect location to a beautiful beach that was so isolated you felt hilike it was your own private beach. The spacious house and wrap around porches gave our children and grandchildren room to gather and talk or be alone with their own thoughts. The house had everything you would need for cooking including two grills, crock pot, pots and pans and plenty of dishes, silverware, etc. We prepared most of our meals in the well laid out kitchen. For eating out, we tried Krazy Fish and Shipwreck's Raw Bar. Both were great places! There was a beach canopy, beach toys and chairs. The pool was clean, and the water was warm which made it so relaxing. I have never rented from a more gracious host than Peter. We really appreciate his hospitality. The manager, Jim was also great. They really care about you and want you to have a wonderful experience! We hope to be able to come back some day!

    The Forgotten Coast did not disappoint!!

    Our second stay at Two Palms and we loved every minute. So much room to spread out and relax. Many decks to choose from to enjoy sunrises and sunsets. You have everything you could need including 2 kayaks! But the best part of this house is location, location, location! You are just steps to the gorgeous beach and you practically have it to yourself. We brought our dogs and they love having the beach to themselves to run. The neighbors and locals are super friendly as is Candy, the manager. She goes above and beyond to make sure we had everything we need. She’s just a text away at any time. Port St. Joe, Cape San Blas, Indian Pass and Apalachicola are still beautiful even after the hurricane. We’d definitely stay here again. So much to do (or not do!!) Paradise!!

    Fantastic week!

    Every year our extended family rents a house somewhere to spend a week together. Our stay at Three Palms was amazing! The property has everything you need and is walking distance to a quiet, almost private beach. The house is well maintained and the owner and the property manager were accessible and very responsive. This was a perfect place to relax, recharge, and spend time together. The guys went on a local fishing charter and had a great time. The rest of the family went into Port St. Joe for some lunch and sightseeing. My only suggestion for the property itself would be to add some more kitchen utensils for cooking. We will definitely return!

    Perfect Vacation at THREE PALMS

    My friends and I absolutely loved staying at this property. The house was clean, renovated, spacious, and exceeded our expectations. My group of 12 adults enjoyed this house because of its enormous porches, comfortable bedrooms, super close access to the beach, and the wide backyard. The weather was perfect during our stay so having the pool and the kayaks truly spoiled us. The owners did a phenomenal job of communicating with us and making sure our group was having a great vacation. Any time I had a question or request, the owner quickly responded and answered with detail. I especially enjoyed how the owners accommodated my group's arrival and departure plans. This property was wonderful and we wish to stay here again in the future.

    We so enjoyed our stay at Three Palms! The owners and property manager, Jim were so helpful prior to and during our stay. The house is great for a large group to spread out and enjoy. We cooked and the kitchen is well stocked with all that we needed. The pool was sparkling clean and we love the proximity to the beach. The extra refrigerator and washing machines are a nice touch. Love the outdoor shower with warm water! Beautiful and comfortable home, great location, beach not crowded, oysters down the road at Indian Pass...we loved it all. We had all that we needed and more. Thanks Lydia and Peter!
