We spent a week at Vista Blue with our family and had a wonderful time. The house is beautiful and spacious. The kitchen is well equipped with plenty of storage for all of our things. We cooked in all but one night and really enjoyed the kitchen and the dining options. There is a great ocean view from both the inside and the outside dining tables. The living room space is comfortable and easily accommodated all of us. The bathrooms are very nice with plenty of soft plush towels and a nice little toiletries package. The bedrooms were also comfortable with plenty of closet space. We really enjoyed the outdoor living spaces. Great views of sunrise and sunset and the ocean from both decks. It’s a very short walk down the boardwalk to the beach where we spent a lot of time. The outdoor shower under the house has hot water and we used it every day. The house was so nice, it made our vacation very special!
Property Manager Response: We are thrilled Vista Blue was the perfect home for your family's beach getaway, and we appreciate you sharing your experience. We hope to welcome you back to the Forgotten Coast soon; thank you for being our guest!

We’ve been coming to the panhandle (usually Rosemary Beach) since 2003. It’s gotten too crowded up at 30A (Seaside/Rosemary, etc.) so we’ve been coming to Cape San Blas. This was our first time at Indian Pass. We had the beach to ourselves (unheard of on the panhandle) and the dolphins came within 30 feet of the shore, almost every day. I’ve never seen that. The water was mostly muddy brown, though, and not the fault of the homeowners but nature. Not sure if it was an abnormality or how it normally is here with the Apalachicola River emptying into the nearby bay, which empties into the Gulf. The night skies were a Bortle 2!!! If you know anything about light pollution, then you will know this is a rare gem. When skies were clear we saw the Milky Way and Scorpio and countless other constellations. Bonfires on the beach (no permit required) and dogs on the beach (no permit) are another HUGE bonus to rent this place. Beautiful home, fun kites (we bought and left a Batman one), puzzles, beach at your backyard. Totally would recommend this home. Rented bikes but unless you ride right at the shore (hard wet sand) it’s too difficult to ride on the beach. We didn’t use grill but it looked decent. I also recommend the WW2 museum in Carabella (45 minutes away) at Camp Gordon Johnston. Amazing collection for such a tiny museum. Joe Mama’s Pizza is the BEST!! Order there for sure!!
Property Manager Response: Hi, Trenna. We are thrilled you had a great time staying in Vista Blue and agree the Forgotten Coast has a lot to offer. It was a pleasure having you stay with us, and we hope you stay with us again soon. Thank you for being our guest!

We had a wonderful week at the Vista Blue! Check in was easy and communication was great! The kitchen was well stocked (we love to cook!) and also had kid friendly cups/plates/utensils which is wonderful for us as we had 4 under the age of 4 with our group! The pictures were an accurate description of the home. We saw dolphins almost every day we were there, they would even come up very close to shore! The beach was not crowded at all. The house was also stocked with games and kid beach gear! We would definitely come back to this house for a future vacation.

Great communication and the house was as advertised. The guide received prior to arrival is most helpful. It is also nice to not have to deal with taking the trash cans out or stripping the beds or washing the towels. Great clean house and the extra touches go a long way! Appreciate it. Can’t wait to go back!

Natural Retreats was the most pleasant, easy, and professional property management/vacation rental experience I’ve ever had. Their white glove treatment and incredible preparedness was extremely impressive! I HIGHLY recommend staying at a Natural Retreats property.

Beautiful property in great condition. Natural Retreats was very responsive to inquiries and when wifi needed fixing.

A beautiful home with a great location right on the beach. Loved the easy access. It was like having our own private beach. There was lots of space to stretch out and the beds were comfortable and the bedrooms well appointed. Everything we needed was right there. Brought our dogs and they had a blast too. Only warning, there are lots of steps if you have an older pet or person with difficulty walking. This was our first time in Indian Pass ( we usually stay in Cape San Blas). Loved this location and home and would absolutely return. We also found Natural Retreats to be very responsive to our needs when we experienced some wifi issues. They were quickly resolved even on a Sunday! A great vacation.
Property Manager Response: Thanks for your kind review, Donna. We're pleased to hear that you had an enjoyable stay with us at Vista Blue! Thank you for being our guest, and we look forward to having you back in the future.

Beautiful home in a less busy place and able to walk a mile to the cute general shop and restaurant
Only recommendation- please communicate directly all check in info on the platform we booked it through- asking us to leave the platform to find out how to check in isn’t good customer service
Professional company not owner owned

Quiet, private, very beautiful. This house had more than enough room for our family. On the beach with great privacy.
Clean. Stocked with everything you will need, ( towels, cooking utensils, etc.)
Have no second guesses about staying here.
Wonderful, and we will be back.

Gear was there when we arrived & all we had to do was leave it for pick up when we left. Could not be easier!

Vista Blue was truly a beautiful retreat. Gorgeous setting, calm and relaxing. The home was just as described and very clean and inviting.
We had a wonderful, relaxing time with our pampered pups loving it as well.

Vista Blue at Cape San Blas was the perfect get away for my adult family! Secluded enough on the beach that you will not be closely surrounded by other beach goers, yet 5 minutes to the General Store to pick up any necessities that you forgot to pack. The kitchen is well stocked, beds were comfortable and air conditioning was a 10/10! We had dinners on the back porch, and coffee outside of our bedroom in the mornings. The sunsets were beautiful and we even saw dolphins swimming from our deck! The water is not crystal clear blue (made worse because of tropical storm Fred) but cleared up quickly and was fine for our family to play in. The communication was excellent and requests/concerns were answered quickly by Natural Retreats, even after losing power briefly from tropical storm Fred! Vista Blue is a beautiful home located steps to the beach and we highly recommend to anyone looking for a peaceful, comfortable beach get away!
Property Manager Response: Thank you for your kind review, Sandy. We're so thrilled to hear that you and your family had a wonderful vacation while staying with us at Vista Blue! Thanks for staying with us. It would be our pleasure to host your next visit to Cape San Blas again soon.

The home was clean and very nice. We had an issue with a beeping that we thought was coming from a smoke detector that ended up being a carbon detector. When we called about the problem we got a prompt response . Someone arrived right away and took care of the problem.
