Palm Island house description

'Paradise, heaven, priceless....' are just a few of the descriptors used by our guests to describe their experience after a visit to this well-appointed home on this private island, also known as Palm Island. You could be the next to experience one of Southwest Florida's best kept secrets! Start your beach vacation with a short ferry ride across the Intra-coastal Waterway and enter onto this private island where you will experience another world of peace and tranquility, free of high rises and rich with abundant wildlife. The comforts and amenities of Paradise Cottage await you, just steps away from a pristine, almost private, seven-mile beach. Enjoy the serene lagoon and boat dock just off the back yard, giving you the best of both worlds in boating, fishing and easy beach access. Step back in time and vacation in old Florida style, enjoying the most peaceful vacation you have ever had.

This Gulf view and lagoon front home is located on the south end of Palm Island, just 70 steps to the Gulf of Mexico, across a sandy road. Don Pedro Island (also known as Palm Island or Knight Island), is a barrier island off the coast of Englewood and Placida, Florida. The island is accessible by car ferry, or you may choose to rent a golf cart to explore the island.

Paradise Cottage boasts a colorful tropical-inspired interior with hand-painted furniture, Mexican tiles, whimsical artwork and hardwood floors. Careful attention has been paid to decorating and regularly updating the home. Follow the sun or shade from the front screened lanai with sparking views of the Gulf of Mexico to the back deck overlooking the beautiful, tropical lagoon, which includes a private dock.

This custom, 1700 sq. ft. single family home is perfect for couples, families, and groups, sleeping up to 8 with 3 bedrooms, a loft with trundle, and 2 full baths. The two king beds and 4 twin beds surround you with luxurious bedding to ensure a restful night after a day in the sun and water. Upstairs enjoy views of the Gulf from the master bedroom suite with its own private deck and a separate shower and whirlpool tub overlooking the lagoon out back. Bring groceries to prepare simple or gourmet meals in the well-appointed kitchen with its quartz countertops, tropical tiles, upgraded appliances, Cuisinart, blender, coffee and cappuccino maker, etc., etc.

Be prepared to wash your cares away on this tranquil private island that offers fantastic fishing, boating, and water sports of all kinds. Explore the island by bicycle, foot, or golf cart. Take a break from the ocean to enjoy the heated freshwater pool and cabana or play some tennis. Fish off the back dock or right off the beach. Charter a deep sea fishing trip or rent a kayak or canoe to explore the waterways. Explore the Don Pedro State Park just a short walk down the beach. Golf is available just down the road on the mainland. Your options are limitless. Rentals are available for golf carts, boats, and fishing charters. Just bring your groceries, personal items, fishing poles. 9ll is available on the island. Restaurant and activities available at north end of island.
