Description Description
Nestled within the enchanting enclave of Indian Summer in the Florida Panhandle, "HULA MATULA" is a seaside escape that beckons you to surrender to the rhythm of the Gulf's gentle waves. This extraordinary beachfront residence, ensconced amidst the verdant embrace of Florida's towering pines and elegant cabbage palms, offers a retreat from the chaos of daily life. Elegantly unique, "HULA MATULA" is a four-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom sanctuary where you can accommodate up to eight fortunate guests.

The architectural design of this home is a delightful surprise, one that lends both intimacy and spaciousness. For those who cherish privacy, the split-layout is a gift; it offers a separate haven for each bedroom, but it's worth noting that families with young children may find it a bit unconventional. The crown jewel of the property, the Master bedroom, resides within the heart of the main living quarters, offering an exceptional vista of the tranquil Gulf waters. However, the remaining bedrooms are discreetly tucked away across outdoor decks on two distinct levels, reachable only via al fresco pathways, lending a unique charm to "HULA MATULA." Spanning over 3,100 square feet of meticulously appointed interior living space, this coastal abode embraces your every need.

The ground level unveils a generous parking area, accommodating three to five cars, with room for the parking of a boat, an amenity that avid sailors and water enthusiasts will appreciate. A private beach boardwalk invites you to embark on a journey towards the tranquil waters. An enclosed outdoor shower, a gas grill area thoughtfully paired with seating, and stairs that lead to the first floor's open breezeway further enhance the charm of the outdoor space. It is here that the entrance to the first level of the home, with its extraordinary dining and living areas (please note, the fireplace is not available), comes into view. The kitchen, fully stocked and accompanied by a wine cooler, stands as an exquisite canvas for culinary artistry.

Further exploration of "HULA MATULA" reveals the unanticipated beauty of its architecture, with distinct sections accessible only across the outdoor deck. The first level, across the breezeway, shelters a half bath and the captivating bar/media room, resplendent with a colossal 75" HD Smart TV, a kitchenette adorned with a mini bar, an additional refrigerator, and a dishwasher, elevates your entertainment experience. while a King bedroom with a private en suite bath enjoys a view of a private garden-side deck.

The second level is an elevated realm of grandeur, where the King Master bedroom takes center stage, presenting breathtaking views of the Gulf and a private deck bedecked with loungers and a swing, an ideal sanctuary for moments of contemplation. An enormous walk-in closet and a lavish Master bath replete with a pedestal tub, step-in shower, and double vanity contribute to an opulent living experience. Additionally, an office area promises tranquility for those in need of a workspace that defies monotony.

Meanwhile, across an outdoor deck, a pair of Queen bedrooms, connected through a Jack-n-Jill bath with a tub/shower combination, offer exclusive quarters for guests seeking the perfect balance of comfort and shared intimacy. In this arrangement, "HULA MATULA" excels in its commitment to creating spaces that resonate with the spirit of togetherness, while also honoring the sanctity of personal retreats.

Noteworthy technological upgrades embellish the appeal of "HULA MATULA." The property now boasts fast and stable Starlink Internet, as well as an exceptionally rapid mesh router that blankets both indoor and outdoor spaces, extending nearly to the very shores. With Roku streaming devices integrated into every TV, guests can indulge in personal content streaming, while the abode generously includes Disney+, HULU, and ESPN for your entertainment pleasure. Bidding adieu to cable and DVD, the media room is thoughtfully primed for your gaming consoles, assuring seamless play on the fastest HDMI input available.

With every sunrise and sunset, this sanctuary whispers a timeless promise of serenity, where you can escape the clutches of everyday life.

Sweet Serenity
First time visiting; hopefully not the last. Loved everything about this property. We had to evacuate for 1 day in the middle of the trip bc of Idalia, but we were able to return promptly. I would definitely recommend this house and the property management company.

Most amazing house we have ever rented for a couples vacation.
Beautiful home with so much privacy for each couple. Not your ordinary rental where you can hear each other talking in the next room. Would recommend to anyone traveling to Indian Pass as a couples vacation or family vacation.

Beach vacay with family
We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful beach home. Perfect layout if combining families to have some privacy. Nice big and open layout. Beautiful decor and great seating for family dinners and hangouts. If you like a fan when you sleep you may want to pack a portable fan to run, but overall wonderful stay and great experience.

The perfect getaway!
This place is absolutely beautiful! Love the layout and the home has all the right amenities. The location listed as beachfront isn't stated enough, you open the front door and out in front of you is the beautiful ocean and beach. You can't get any closer to the beach and water than this home. We would definitely stay here again. Perfect home A+A+

Hula Matual the house of many doors
Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Really quite the house, set up like 2 houses in one with a breezeway between the 2 sections. There were little things that were bothersome, but I'm rating the stay 5 stars. WiFi was a problem as was cable etc...but do you really want to watch TV with the view this house has of the gulf?

Hula Matula did not disappoint
Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Just finished a beautiful week at Hula Matula. The house did not disappoint and met our two families needs for an amazing trip. The set up was a little different but ended up being great as it provided privacy for all. I would recommend a TV in the main room. You could one put over the fireplace. Having TVs in the bedrooms created a separation. We found that we couldn't all hang out. Would have been nice while having breakfast and cooking dinner. The Olympics were on and the kids would go off an watch by themselves. Otherwise no complaints. The beach gear company VayK Gear was awesome!!! We needed some replacements and they were very responsive. Corn Hole was a great idea. Would do a paddleboard instead of a Kayak.

Thanks so much for your review! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. I did want to point out that although there is not a tv in the formal living room this home does have a media room with a fridge and bar for those occasions where you want to watch tv together. We hope to have you back soon!

Far from the madding crowd
If crowds and traffic are your thing then this is not the place for you. This beach-front house is good for a group of friends or extended family. Three separate sleeping areas offer privacy and the living area is large and comfortable. The community pool is a nice extra.

Beautiful and Relaxing
This is a lovely property and very well maintained. The beach is quiet with wildlife being protected. It is a short drive into town if you want restaurants and nightlife. The mgmt staff were terrific and responsive. Take note of the unusual layout though which would not be good if you have young children. It is fine for older teenagers though. The privacy issue with the windows in the bathrooms was the only concern. Otherwise, we highly recommend this home!

THE HULA MATULA!
Great place to stay. The beach is terrific. If you're looking for a quite location, this is your place. If you want to go out, there are many places in Port St. Joe and Apalachicola and it's a short drive away. We had several cook outs with fresh seafood purchased just down the road. Just absolutely terrific. There's was a free Dolphin show behind the house almost everyday. As for cons, there's only one, please trim the palm tree by the board walk leading to the beach, it's a bit in the way. Also buy or bring insect repellent, the mosquitos are thick!

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Hula Matula was absolutely perfect! We were looking for a quieter beach spot to visit with our teen boys and their friends. This house could not have been more perfect. There was plenty of space for everyone and because of the unique floorplan, we all had the perfect amount of togetherness and privacy when needed. The house was very clean, comfortable, and well-appointed.
We also loved Hula Matula's location. We were able to go out for food if we wanted yet we felt secluded and the beach was never crowded.
I highly recommend this rental if you have older children!

Immaculate!
This was by far the cleanest VRBO that we have ever rented. The location is perfect for a laid back visit to the beach - right between Apalachicola and Port St. Joe, with just a few houses around you. The kitchen was wonderfully appointed with everything you need. We loved the layout of the separation of the bedrooms, it gave everyone some privacy while allowing everyone to be able to come together in the great room and around the dining table. The decks were perfect, and the beach was awesome. The only real complaint we had about the property is the Wifi, it was very spotty and sometimes just non-existent. Made doing some work from there difficult at times. You can indeed see into the master bathroom if the light is on, which is a little awkward if showering at night. But those are just minor issues, and I wouldn't hesitate to rent this place again. I only wish we had booked it for more than a week! We'll definitely be back!

We literally had 75 yards between us and guest staying at another property when we were at the beach.

Fabulous Family Retreat!
Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: This is a wonderfully designed beach home with too many amenities to list here. My wife and I and my three stepdaughters with son-in-laws and a grand baby all had wonderful private bedrooms. The kitchen/family gathering space brought everyone together in a wonderful way. The private beach views off of both large balconies were stunning. The media room, laundry room, pantry area, utility sink with two types of coffee makers and the outdoor heated beach shower were all a big plus as was the nearby beautiful private community pool. It's in a great location away from the crowds as we wanted. There are several fine restaurants within easy driving distance but you'll probably want to stay and enjoy this masterpiece! I have already recommended it to friends and relatives and we'll probably be back next year too!

Fantastic family vacation!
With the exception of the sudden development of Tropical Storm Nester that caused us to cut our trip short by a day this family vacation will be difficult to eclipse. The house is amazing (once you get used to the layout), and the convenience to the beach, and immaculate views make it difficult to beat. This was our first trip to Port St Joe-Indian Pass area, but will not be our last.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Hula Matula was the perfect House for my family! I was blessed to have my 3 adult children & their spouses spend Spring Break there. Everyone had their own queen+ bed & bathroom (one was a Jack&Jill.) Loved how the bedrooms opened up to an outside breezeway. It was spacious with a lot of room for everyone to relax with the beach Right out our back door! My children’s only complaint was the Master bedroom had the best view! The ‘Media Room’ was a nice touch, we all piled in there to watch movies after the sun set!. Loved the outdoor shower & 1/2 bath which helped keep the sand outside. When not on the beach, we loved sitting on the porch & watching the dolphins! Well stocked kitchen, loved the coffee bar & Pantry area with the washer/dryer off the Pantry. We had a GREAT relaxing week with the family!

I just spent Christmas week at Hula Matula and was blown away by how perfect it was in every way! Beautifully laid out, comfortable furniture and immaculately clean. The location is my favorite in the area, so pristine, private and peaceful, yet positioned equal distance to Port Saint Joe and Apalachicola so I can choose among many of my favorite restaurants for some great seafood! Cape and Coast will always get my business as they are the best at what they do! Great experience in last minute reservations, and all around great customer service. As a matter of fact while there I had a non-emergency maintenance situation that was taken care of immediately, on Christmas Day, with a smile! (David was so helpful and friendly) Rent this house, you won't be disappointed!

Thought the separated bedrooms would be weird, but ended up working out really well for teens and adults to have their own spaces. If we were any closer to beach, would have been in the ocean. Could use some ceiling fans. Will definitely book again and recommend to anyone!
