Don Pedro Island townhome description
Relax on this secluded island beach. Look for shells or sharks teeth. Walk the 7 miles of under developed beach with no crowds of people. Take your fishing pole and fish for many types of game fish from your own beach. Don Pedro Island is only 100 yards off of the mainland. Take the car ferry across the channel and drive the short distance to this townhouse located directly on the beach or bring your boat and dock on the island. Dock space is available at no additional charge for your boat and walk across the street to the townhouse. Golf carts are available to rent for transportation if you do not bring your car across.
Just a short walk to the south is a nature preserve where you can enjoy the natural, undeveloped Florida island. The beach is three and a half miles long in both directions. This island has no high rise developments. It is truly an island of white sand beaches that is a paradise for a family vacation or for a getaway to rekindle that romantic fire. Relax and sit on the beach or one of the decks and enjoy reading a book or just watching the wildlife.
Enjoy the tennis courts and the heated swimming pool that are yours to use free of charge and are very close to this unit.
Sorry, No pets are allowed and this is a non-smoking unit.
We installed a new kitchen with all new cabinets, appliances and granite counters. This was completed Feb 10, 2012. All new bathroom vanities with granite counters installed Feb 2013.

Our first beach vacation with toddler
Our first beach vacation with toddler
Regarding the house: location, view and space were great, right on the water, literally steps from the beach. The size of the house was perfect for us. My wife and I went with our toddler and my mother in law, we had plenty of room for all. The house had everything we needed. We didn’t end up needing all the things that we took. The house is basically fully stocked with just about everything you need for a beach vacation. The rental process was seamless. The property management company, at least from my end, seems to run like a well-oiled machine. We found the house online. E-mail with the owner and then when the dates were set, we were contacted by the property manager. Sorted out all the paperwork via e-mail. Had one telephone chat with the PM before arrival. Once we arrived, since we got to the island after the office closed, the house was all set for us. Everything was clean and in good working order. The view of the beach / gulf and sunset are out of this world. It is impossible not to relax while there. We all had an excellent time. We will be back. Things I wish I had known before heading out: stingrays also share the beach.

Manager response: Tom, I am glad you had a relaxing time at our beach house. Yes, this house has everything you should need except for food and drink. I am glad that your check in went well. My property manager has been doing this for many years and knows all the little things that make the process go smoothly. As for the sting rays, I hope you did not get hurt by one. I have seen them from time to time but they have never been a problem. Please contact us again for another stay in the future, we would be glad to have you come back to enjoy our little slice of paradise. Thanks
Family Summer Vacation
Family Summer Vacation
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay for the week of the Fourth of July. The house location is what we where looking for in a remotely, secluded location not covered with people other than those living or renting in the area. The house was well kept with all the necessary amenities and comfort of a beach house. The views were spectacular since the property was located right off the beach, and access is just feet away from the back door. The beach is great for kids as the water is usually quite calm (other than on the stormy days we had), and the discovery of lots of shells and shark teeth to entertain the family. We will definitely be back!

Not sure where to begin but here goes. Our family had one of the best vacations on Don Pedro in unit 20. We arrived and Bob the property manager got us situated right away. He provided us all the information we needed during our stay. We were amazed at how close we were to the beach and the layout of the unit. The kids immediately settled in for our week long stay while my wife and I relaxed watching the sunset. The sunsets were spectacular and the water was very clear. The kids enjoyed a variety of activities like shelling, swimming, snorkeling, sand castles, boogie boarding, etc. I enjoyed lounging around and fishing early mornings. My wife enjoyed the morning jogs on the beach and relaxing on the back screened in deck. An added bonus was the storage room with bunches beach gear for the kids. The pool was nice too, very clean. The island is very quiet, peaceful and people are friendly. One night we went to the Rum Bay restaurant and really enjoyed that. Be prepared to buy your groceries before getting on the island since the ferry ride is $55 for round trip. Before I forget, one of our favorite part was all the wild life on the island. We saw many different birds, crabs, fishes, dolphins, turtles nests and even a tortoise. Thank you for the memories and we'll be back.

Manager response: I am glad you and your family enjoyed your vacation as much as we do when we go there. It truly is an unspoiled part of Florida. Watching the sunsets is a ritual that you have to do every night, they are spectacular viewing this unobstructed over the Gulf. You are correct the wildlife is amazing there. You do need to buy everything before you come across on the ferry and this does take some planning. The ferry company does offer 7 day passes for $165 that gives you 5 round trips. This is what most guests get that stay for a week. If you come back next year our pool house will be rebuilt. This will make the pool area a little more enjoyable. Thank you for staying at our beach house and come back again.
Spring Break 2012
Spring Break 2012
What a wonderful time we had at your villa on Don Pedro Island! The weather was wonderful and the beach was awesome. There were hardley any people around. Everyone told us this was high season well if this was high season, in low season you must have the beach to yourself. The first day we got there the water was cold but as the week went on the water got warmer or our bodies got used to it. The villa was just as pictured. The only problem we had was that we couldn't get the storage locker opened but the property manager fixed it. We loved the lounge chairs, where else can you pull out an actual pool lounge chair from under the house and put in on the back. That was my favorite part. You will know probably having a lot of visitors from St. Louis, MO because we have told everyone how wonderful it was. We even have friends that just moved to Punta Gurda from St. Louis who came to visit us and said they will be back to stay. We will be back soon! Thank you some much for sharing your home with us.

Manager response: Christi,I am glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at our beach house. I am sorry you had a problem with the lock on the storage shed but I am glad Bob got it fixed for you. You are welcome to come back when ever you can get away. Please tell your friends about it as well. You were there at peak time, if you really want to have the beach all to yourselves come in October. This is my favorite time to go. Take care.
If you like an obnoxious "cruise director" blowing a whistle at the pool all day long or a wet t shirt contest, this island is not for you. If you want true relaxation where there is nobody around to bother you, this IS the place for you. We were stunned at how free from people the beach was. Never fighting for sand or space. The pool was a great touch...spent every monring lounging in total relaxation. Beds were great, new countertops, great fridge and oven...eating on the porch every morning and every night. Went to Palm Island Resort for Happy Hour once and to Leverock's....Free Water Taxi if you show your receipt. We will definately be back....Oh yeah, the Margarita's were a little strong. But we made them, so I guess that is our fault. Thanks!

Manager response: I am glad that you enjoyed our little spot in Florida. We do everything that we can to make our guests feel at home and it sounds like you felt that way. We have the same problem making the margarita's too strong as well. Must be something in the air, at least that is my excuse. Thank you and come back again soon.
Best vacations we have taken
Best vacations we have taken
On behalf of my family, I can honestly say that our week on Don Pedro was one of the BEST vacations we have ever taken! To be able to get away from everything, plan nothing and just spend time together was priceless. I would add that the pictures of your home do not do it justice. We were all pleasantly surprised to find it much nicer than the pictures show. Everything was in great condition and well kept. We will most definitely be back!!

Best Every Family Vacation!
Best Every Family Vacation!
WOW! We were impressed the moment we drove up to the unit and even more so once we were inside. Clean, spacious, and comfortable! This was the best family vacation for us! We have three little ones (twins who are 4 and a toddler who's 2.5). It was very convenient and relaxing for us to "just hang out at the beach" and not worry about loading the kids up in the van and driving to a crowed beach. We hung out on the beach right outside the unit, came inside when the kids needed to use the restroom, eat and nap. Beach was clean, quiet and NOT crowed at all! The gentle waves were perfect for our little ones. While on the island, we had a 911 with our youngest son. Both my husband and I were impressed at how quickly the EMT and Fire trucks responded considering the EMT had to come from the mainland and it was 6AM in the morning right when the Ferry Service opened. We are definitely planning to return to this unit. At first we dealt with the owner directly being that it was a last minute trip for us. Once we were on the road driving there from MN, the rental company got in touch with us and took our information. Check-in and check-out was flawless. Suggestions: -There were only 3 beach towels in the closet. Bring your own beach towels. -Bring your own laundry detergent if you're planning on doing laundry -Beach toys were abundant, but many were broken -Beach chairs were old and rusted -Make sure they're not pumping sand on the beach (they do it once every so many years) because the bulldozers will run 24/7 and keep you up at night Thank you for the opportunity to enjoy this "home away from home"! -

Year Purchased: 2005
About: My wife and I purchased this beachfront unit because we love the quietness of Don Pedro Island. We live in Wisconsin and get to Florida as often as we can. Our kids love it on the island. If you have never been to the island, give it a try. You will never go back to those busy beaches again.
Why Don Pedro Island:
We found Don Pedro Island on VRBO and rented a unit for a family vacation. We liked the area and 2 years later we purchased a unit of our own. We love it there and try to get these whenever we can.
