About the Property
House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1.25 Baths, (Sleeps 3-4)
Fish off the dock and watch the fiddler crabs scurry among the mangroves at low tide.
The area is renowned for tarpon, snook, redfish and trout. Experienced guides are available at all nearby marinas. Guests are drawn either to the upper deck or the beach to view stunning sunsets and hope to witness the elusive green flash.
Mangrove Bay is a secluded, charming and modest beach house located on Kettle Harbor on Don Pedro Island. This one bedroom, one bath home with hardwood floors, an open kitchen and great room provides a comfortable place to relax, read, or plan your day at the beach, on the water or on the mainland. The fully equipped kitchen includes a microwave, coffee maker and toaster. There is a private dock which can accommodate a single boat of up to 26 feet on mangrove lined Kettle Harbor, an outdoor hot/cold shower (best used under a full moon and bright stars or just to rinse off from a visit to the beach), a charcoal grill, a hammock, beach chairs and umbrellas.
Although less than 300 feet separate the island from the mainland, it feels like a world away.

Year Purchased: 1981
About the owner: Thirty years ago we heard of a magical place where fewer than 10 homes were built on 7 miles of pristine beach, the full time population of the island area numbered less than 40. We spent a year looking at properties before buying Mangrove Bay. A few years later, the addition of Interstate 75 cut our travel time in half, then Bocilla Utilities supplied water and we no longer had to carry own own 5 gallon containers. In 1994 ferry service became available for private vehicles. Times have changed but Mangrove Bay retains all of its original charm and appeal. Our children are grown but they have a lifetime of memories sharing time and special experiences with family and friends on the island.
Why the Owner Chose Palm Island, FL, USA:
Although I was born in Florida and enjoyed the beaches in St. Petersburg, a new world opened up when I first visited the barrier island of Don Pedro. The beaches were blanketed with shells, sand dollars and sharks' teeth, but it was the Caribbean blue crystal-clear water that took my breath away. There were only a few homes and no condos. It was worth spending a year to find our respite away from the stresses of contemporary life.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Being a part of 'Old Florida', breakfast on the dock, picnic lunches on the beach, evening dinners on the deck, showering outdoors under the stars - heavenly.
