Palm Island house description

ABOUT THE HOME:
A-Lure is a charming, well-appointed and comfortable single-family Key-West-style home on the water on Palm Island, Florida, halfway in-between Fort Myers & Sarasota. It is just what you have been looking for in your next island beach vacation, with its private, heated swimming pool beautifully tiled pool area on lushly landscaped grounds, outdoor shower, outdoor entertainment area—all overlooking the canal! Bring your boat (up to 25 feet) to utilize our deep water dock, which takes you right out to the Intracoastal Waterway without bridges where you can explore other islands, water ski, fish, etc. Or use the available two person Kayak for an excursion around the canals.

A-Lure offers an open floor plan with comfortable furniture, ceiling fans, large screen TV, cathedral ceiling, hardwood and tile floors and plantation shutters. Outdoor seating and entertainment is plentiful. The large screened-in lanai spans the back of the house, accessible from the living room and the master bedroom and allows for comfy seating and dining—perfect for relaxing and enjoying the spectacular island sunsets! The pool area boasts a very large outdoor entertainment area providing both sun and shade, with an under-house tiled patio/bar area outfitted with wicker furniture and large pool patio, all leading to the boardwalk and boat dock.

A-Lure’s kitchen features beautiful granite counter-tops and a wine cooler, in addition to everything you need to prepare simple or elaborate meals. The king master suite is in the back of the house, with direct access to the lanai and the views of the canal. Enjoy free wireless internet and cable TV, DVD/CD players. Everything you need is here!

ABOUT THE ISLAND:
Palm Island is one of the last best kept secrets on the Gulf of Mexico. It is only accessible by boat, with two ferry’s running generous hours daily for both cars and pedestrians. Palm Island is near Englewood, Florida and just north of Boca Grande. Fly into Sarasota, Fort Myers, Punta Gorda or Tampa. The island is seven miles long with plenty of clean sandy beaches and great shelling and shark teeth and the Don Pedro Nature Preserve.

Many years ago, there were three different islands...Knight Island to the north (now known as Palm Island), Don Pedro Island in the middle and Little Gasparilla to the south. Years ago, the passes between each one closed up and they became one island, sharing the 7 mile beach. Don Pedro, Knight Island and Palm Island are often referred to interchangeably.

Life on the island is exactly what one dreams about when they think of island life—relaxed, laid back, quiet, subdued, and yet just a quick hop on the ferry to enter the “real world.” There are only about 200 homes on the island, no big bridges, causeways, busy roads, street lights, etc. The air is clean; there are few cars, no hustle and bustle from busy roads. Golf carts and bikes are mostly used for transportation. All of this is what makes the island extra special, very safe and calm.

The beach is just a short walk away and golf cart rental is available on the island. There is one island restaurant and a small store to purchase minimal supplies. Rent kayaks, boats, bicycles, or charter a fishing trip. Enjoy many restaurants, golf courses, and shopping on the mainland but NOT on the island. Don’t be surprised to see manatees, tortoise, exotic birds, dolphins and any number of fish on your adventure.
Once your get here you will never want to leave!
