You can see for miles and miles, and it’s gorgeous. This area is a very natural setting fantastic for long walks looking for shells, fishing, crabbing and you can even stroll the beaches on horseback.
Taking a step back from our busy schedules, you can really reconnect in a place where time seems to stand still and your adventure for the day can be to cook your own catch. If you’re not a fisherman, or chef, the Indian Pass Raw Bar is a couple of miles down the road and famous for its mouth-watering raw oysters and fresh seafood. No high rises or crowded commercialization like you’ll find to our west, just simple beautiful outdoor adventure.

We really enjoyed our stay again. We stayed here 2 years ago and was thrilled to be able to stay again and was glad the dates were available. Convenient - Loved being on the beach and having access to the pool. Lots of room for everyone in the house. Needs updating but that didn’t stop us from having a blast.
Great location but rental needs to be updated.
Excellent Property would recommend to anyone looking for a beautiful view and relaxing time
The top floor decks was inaccessible. Lots of maintenance issues involving the dryer, dishwasher and upstairs ac were an inconvenience. They did not make the trip unenjoyable. We still had a great time. This house has 4 full bathrooms which was a great plus. The houses are very close together in this area which is not what we are used to at Indian Pass but judging by all the new houses being built, it is becoming the norm. Overall the house was nice, maintenance just needs to take care of a few issues.
We had the easy beach access we wanted with a comfortable place to eat and sleep. The home had a beachy-Boho vibe about it. Although all the homes appeared to be rented we had plenty of room on the beach. Loved the area and town.
Location, location, location! We love the top deck of the house!
Very nice property. Easy to enjoy and ao convenient
Beach and pool were fantastic.
We’ve stayed at Gulfside Gem multiple times and have never been disappointed.
Beach and pool are great.
Gulf side Gem is a good home but needs updates! The beds were the worst part and spraying for bugs is a must. Updated living room furniture would be nice.
Please note that the interior of our properties are serviced monthly by a professional pest control company. Bugs present on the exterior of the property, especially flying bugs, are not something they service or we have great success in exterminating.Posted: 7/6/2021
My family came here with our own agendas. Mom…can I open back doors and the beach be right there?? Husband…can wife open back door and beach be right there at a great price for the entire family?? Kids…can mom open back door and the beach be right there and can we come along?? The layout of the house was amazing. My husband and I had the very top floor and we had our own space. The main floor was the kitchen living room and screened porch…kudos on that because those biting flying ants are no joke. Just needs a ceiling fan, but I’m a sit on the porch with fan blowing kind of gal. We had an amazing time catching baby sharks right out in the ocean there. Caught some catfish and red drum. And the way the houses are set up is like a little community. Everybody respectful of each other. The pool was awesome. Grandson and I and few of the kids in the other houses there had fun playing ring toss and Marco Polo. But something else happened to….memories I was able to share with my family of me and my brother running up and down Mexico beach and showing them where my grandparents honeymoon at over six decades ago…El Governor Motel. Showing them the bay and all the hermit crabs. We had only 2 out of 5 of kids with us, the middle (24y) her husband and our grand child (8y) and the youngest son and our youngest (19y). The space in the house was perfect after being on the beach all day we all had our own spots to go and cool off. Very comfortable, especially that top deck in the sunset time with the amazing breeze and most stunning views. Beautiful beach.
We loved the location and the community pool!
If anything, the furnishings are outdated but I loved the layout and the beach access. We were 3 friends and it was nice to each have our own room and bathroom and even our own deck.
Just right for our group of three. We each had our own room and bath and we even had 3 decks! The beach access is great, too.
Absolutely great location for a quiet family vacation with very easy walk to the beach. pleased with cleanliness and ease of check-in/check-out process. Can't wait to go back!
Thoroughly enjoyed this beach house and the view! The top bedroom and deck were my favorite. Highly recommend. Pristine Properties has a well-designed system for sharing all the info and instructions needed for check in, etc.
Very nice house.
The property was easy and perfect for what we were looking for.
We've been coming to this area for 15yrs. and just love it! We were pretty shocked at what Hurricane Michael did to our special place, but love that everyone is working hard to get it back together. Our place was great and had everything we needed or wanted. We understood the repairs that were being done while we were there. Didn't let it bother us at all. Beach all day, deck all night! Love the new boardwalk! A little sad that the dunes got washed away, but know that they will come back. We look forward to coming back in October only this time hoping no hurricane cuts our trip short like last year. See you in the Fall!!!
The screened in porch is lovely but with an open stairwell we still had some bugs! The house is very roomy and comfortable. All of the stairs were tiresome after a short time. The kitchen was not prepared for a large family as far as pots, pans and skillets. I would recommend this home for a great vacation.
Great beach house. Still some construction going on as the area recovers from the hurricane, but a very secluded spot on a beautiful beach.
