Om Shanti Seaside Cottage

Darling Beach Bungalow with Ocean view, screened-in porch and fenced yard for pets

Due to high visitation and staffing constraints, local area offerings such as restaurants, bars, shopping, and shared amenities may have limited hours or availability. Cell phone and internet service may also be impacted during high visitation periods. Please contact us directly to discuss the impact during your stay dates.

Om Shanti, a yogic term meaning Universal PEACE, refers to a state of being mentally or spiritually at peace. Peace of mind is precisely what we want guests of Om Shanti Seaside Cottage to experience when you visit this unique area of Florida. This cottage soothes guests in the colors of nature with soft hues of gray, white and sea salt blue. We want you to be transported into the sounds, colors, and shapes of nature, helping you feel more at one with yourself. We welcome your inquiries and invite you to experience our home as your own.

Spend a quiet morning at the beach watching the magical dolphins, then have breakfast on the screened porch, and enjoy the wide-open gulf view under the ceiling fans. Let the kids or pets play in the fenced yard while you prepare dinner on the gas grill or in the newly remodeled kitchen where the Gulf waves still catch your eye. A glass of wine or your favorite cocktail is a nice complement to a colorful sunset, and a steamy outdoor shower at the end of the day is another sweet treat.

Located on 30A between Apalachicola (16 miles) and Port St. Joe (10 miles), this cottage provides the perfect zen-like atmosphere to enjoy the broad sandy beaches, unspoiled views and laid back pace of Florida’s Forgotten Coast.

We had an amazing stay at Om Shanti in Indian Pass, FL. This year we vacationed with our best friends and 4 dogs. The house was perfect, close to the beach. We couldn't have asked for more.

We were very pleased with our stay! The home was appropriately stocked and very clean. The light was even left on for us when we checked in after dark! Natural Retreats was very responsive in all communication as well.

We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation stay at the beach. The house was well appointed and had everything we could think of. We were within walking distance from the beach and were able to enjoy the views of the beach from two levels. Our stay was very comfortable and relaxing. Thank you so much for a memorable vacation!

We had to postpone our trip, originally planned for May 2020, due to COVID. We really appreciated your willingness to reschedule our vacation at no additional cost! The VayKay credit was great. Our rental, Om Shanti, was perfect: clean, convenient, and restful! Thank you. We will book again with you!

We reported that the ice maker in the refrigerated freezer had frozen over and we were unable to get ice. Issue was never resolved

I have rented from vacation rental companies for years and this was my most pleasant experience ever! Every step of my reservation was easy - discussing all my options over the phone was very helpful, the app was extremely easy and user-friendly, the property was very nice with great attention to detail, and I really appreciated the extras - such as taking care of getting the garbage can to the road for me and not hassling me with a laundry list of chores and deadlines on the day I moved out. Thank you for a great experience!

This was a beautiful home that was very dog friendly. The location was great. Port St. Joe is a very nice small town that is not touristy. Clean beaches that the dogs could enjoy also.

Love love love this place!!!

This location is truly dog friendly, perfect with a fenced yard. It is so beautiful and serene and peaceful. Listening to the ocean from the porch was wonderful. At night the sky lit up with stars, magnificent! It was very hard to leave this lovely home.

Great Vacation!

I visited Port St. Joe October 2019. I loved this house. The porch was my favorite! I spent a lot of time ready and enjoying the view. The house is cute and the beds are comfortable.

Beautiful views & Easy beach access

We were there for the week of July 4th, this house was perfect. Great location with great gathering area under house. I can’t think of a thing that we needed that wasn’t provided. Can’t wait to return.

Fantastic Beach Escape

We visited this home last October and fell in love. This beach home had everything we needed and is super close to the uncrowned beach. We adored the screened porch and the fenced yard; our dog felt right at home with these features. We loved this home so much that we booked for the same week the next year the day we returned from vacation!

Good location, but not great/reliable amenities

The rental equipment was very basic, no starter toilet paper and we arrived late in the evening, !!!!AT&T does not have any cell service here!!!!, the internet only worked part of the time, and the two main TVs had a short or the cable wouldn't work (even after the repair guys came - they said one was just broken, they fixed the other but it only turned on once, then wouldn't turn on again the next day all while it rained and kept us home bound most of the trip). The upside - customer service in the booking process was very helpful and attentive. The house was clean and laid out nicely with a short, convenient walk to the beach. The screened porches were great.
