Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have gone to the pass for a few years. This is the best house we have stayed at so far. Chris was very easy to work with and recommended a fishing charter. The island views at night are as pretty as it gets. Located close to the boat ramp for fishing trip. The water was very calm and beach is great. We will use this property again.

Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Salty Dogs May 21st through May 28th and had an incredible family vacation. Chris was absolutely wonderful to work with during the booking/reservation phase and was right down the road once we arrived at the home if we needed anything at all. The house was immaculate; probably the cleanest vacation rental we've stayed in. The home was well stocked and very well maintained. Like a previous reviewer posted, the home feels very private with the mature shrubbery on either side. We enjoyed the views of St. Vincent Island, swimming, shelling and fires on the beach. After leaving, we realized that we left our dvd case in the home. A quick phone call to Chris (which he always answers!) remedied our forgetfulness AND he took care of the cost of shipping! Thanks so much, Chris, for opening up your beautiful home to us and for an amazing family vacation.

Best Vacation Yet

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved Indian Pass and the Salty Dogs. The website doesn't do this house justice. We immediately felt at home when we walked through the doors. Views of the beach and St Vincent Island were great. Even though there are homes on either side, the shubery arround this home provides privacy. We crabbed, fished, and shelled right out our back door. Had campfires on the beach and star gazed at night. Everyone is so laid back on the Pass. This is our new favorite place.

Wade, family and friends

  • 5 of 5

Very nice home on the beach. the house was very clean and had everything we needed in the kitchen and laundry room.Only had 5 washcloths though and had to do laundry more than I expected. I would highly recommend Bug repellant, though. I guess because of the natural setting, vegetation and foilage, the mosquitos are awful, especially under the house in the parking and grilling area. Was difficult to get into the car without ending up with several mosquitos in there with you. Otherwise, it was a very nice place to stay. Really enjoyed the quiet, friendly area. Thanks.
