Come on down, grab a cool drink and nestle yourself into our hammock under the whispering Florida pines. Watch the sunrise from our secluded dock and the sunset from the pristine beach every day. Relax you’re in 'Old Florida' now.
This is a true island surrounded by the beautiful blue/green waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Located in Colony Don Pedro, deserted, white sandy beaches on the west side and intercoastal, backwaters on the east side. Put your car on the private ferry over to the island and feel the stress leave your body.
No traffic here. The only sounds you will hear are the fish jumping in the lagoon or the waves crashing the beach. Most days, Stan, our resident turtle will wake you as he passes by for a few green beans or a few chomps on our hibiscus flowers.
Just 200 feet from your front door you can head south down the uninhabited beach, pass through the state park, about three miles and you are at the tip of Little Gasparilla Island. From that point south you are looking at Boca Grande. Head north up the beach about the same distance and visit the Palm Island Resort. Either direction you go the seashells and sharks teeth are under your feet. Watch for tarpon rolling, dolphins cruising, manatees, and loggerhead turtles bobbing their heads as you walk. Remember to take a dip in our gulf side private pool after your relaxing stroll.
Relax out back on the dock with your fishing pole. The snook, redfish, and trout are always there waiting to challenge you. Watch your bait, Jimmy the Egret will sneak up behind you and steal your fish food. Bring your boat and venture out into the fertile back country waters for giant snook, redfish, and tarpon. Or head down to Boca Grande or Stump Pass for world class Florida fishing.
So if you blew out your flip-flop, or stepped on a pop-top, relax you’re in paradise!

About the owner: We love the blue/green waters and the snow white uninhabited beach. It is a quiet and relaxing place with no traffic, cool breezes. Our family loves the water and the activities that accompany a place like this.
Why the Owner Chose Palm Island: We love the relaxed feeling you get when the ferry leaves the mainland and reaches the island. The tree shaded sandy roads, dogs riding on golf carts, the wildlife, and fishing.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: It is all unique. The hammock that hangs on our patio, the outdoor shower, the beach across the road, the cool breezes on our patio, the quiet setting while sitting out back on our dock.
