Don Pedro Island condo description
Experience a tropical escape to a special barrier island just between Sarasota and Fort Myers. Accessed only by a private ferry or your own boat, this get-away is the perfect place to unwind - Florida Style! Island House offers convenience and low-key charm. Duplex unit surrounds a sparkling fresh water pool. A private boat slip in a protected canal directly off the Intracoastal Waterway is at your back door.
The uncrowded white sand gulf beach is steps across the street from your front door. Make your plans: Walk on the beach, collect pocketfuls of shark’s teeth, cast net for bait and land a snook right in the surf. Or take your boat five miles south on the Intracoastal to Boca Grande for a day of some world-class tarpon fishing. Ride a bike around our 4- 1/2 mile island . Or rent a golf cart and do it without spilling your drink! If it’s too hot, relax in hammock under our unit, or (for the beach impaired) turn on the Direct TV satellite and chill out.

Beautiful Don Pedro
Beautiful Don Pedro
Owner was very helpful. We had a great stay. The condo was clean and well maintained and had easy access to the beach as well as a dock on the canal. Neighbor next door does fishing charters which was also great fun. I would recommend this location to others.

Why the Owner Chose Don Pedro Island:
This is our 'home away from home' with what we feel are personal comfortable touches. It's 90 minutes from St. Pete (our real home), but once you get on the ferry, you feel instantly removed from the stress of the mainland! We can just relax on the beach, or go fishing up and down the unobstructed 4-1/2 mile shoreline.
