About Shawn Kolar
We are high school sweethearts originally from Lakeland, FL. We’ve been coming to the island with our son on family vacations for years. In 2014 we were very blessed to find our own little piece of this tiny heaven. Palm Island is a very special place. It is all about relaxation. We hope the island will feel as special to you as it does to us, our family, and our friends.

The house was absolutely beautiful! It is pretty private with security cameras everywhere and a beautiful beach-style pool out back with a fire pit. The bedroom stays a bit warmer than the rest of the house, but that didn’t dampen the experience at all. The toll to ferry your vehicle to the island round trip is $55 and walk-on is $8. Very quiet place and the restaurant on the island is amazing! My wife and I really enjoyed our stay.
AMAZING place to vacation!!!
What a beautiful place to share an amazing week with my hubby. Everything was so clean and beautiful, the kitchen was well stocked, the entire home was updated and simply gorgeous! The private pool was our favorite part. It was so relaxing, water temperature was perfect night and day, there were floaties available, anything we needed was right there. We loved having the two bikes to run around the island on. We also rented a golf cart for the week with Thoroughbred carts, they were a little pricey but it was well worth the freedom. Other than at the house, there is nowhere to park a car on the island so renting a golf cart and having the bikes available really was essential. The island was spectacular, even on the 4th of July the beaches were empty and we felt like we had the place to ourselves. Very relaxed Island living, no pressure to go anywhere or do anything at any time. The car ferry was $110 round trip, so just a note, bring all the groceries and items you need for the week. Definitely would like to come back! Shawn was a great host, thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home!
Just wanted to say Thank you! Also—the ferry is $55 round trip. You just pay coming on to the island. No cost to leave.
Perfect Getaway For Two
We loved our stay! The home is absolutely beautiful. The pool is a definite bonus to have. Access to two bicycles is also a nice bonus. We rented a golf cart so we could explore the island and visit different spots on the beach. We certainly hope to come back again in the future. 5 stars from us!
This very clean well stocked home makes for an amazing getaway, and the pool and paver area is as good as it gets! It is perfect for two (but note that the bed is only a full size vice queen, but is very comfortable) in a very quiet area of the island. Again, this is a super clean home and the spin bike was an added bonus. If you are looking for peace and tranquility one block off a beautiful sandy beach, this is your place. You will not be disappointed. Thanks, Shawn. See you next year!
Great stay on Palm Island!
We enjoyed our stay here this year. A very well kept home with lovely decor inside and out. The bed was very comfy, kitchen well stocked, dining spot beautiful and living room very cozy with a great large screen tv.
The pool was exceptionally nice! The beach is a nice little hike over off of the next street and the restaurant Rum Bay was a nice bike ride (about a mile over to the resort).
We'll return! Thanks Shawn and Brandy, for sharing your home.
A beautiful rental in lovely Palm Island, FL with all the extras you could ask for!
Mt husband and I could not have asked for a more perfect rental for our week on Palm Island, FL. A gorgeous home with its own private heated pool, a fenced in yard for our dogs, bicycles, jetted tub, and it didn't hurt that the weather was picture perfect. We rented a golf cart for the week to scoot around the island with, dividing our time between the beautiful beach and the pool. It was a wonderfully quiet and romantic setting for a week happily spent recharging and enjoying all that Palm Island has to offer. Would come back here in a heartbeat!
