Everything and More

  • 5 of 5

This was everything we had hoped for and more. My favorite part is how many wonderful seating areas there are...I would just bop back and forth from one to another, enjoying the views from each. The table that seats 8-10 on the screened porch can't be beat and welcomed us many a night, making cooking in even more enjoyable than eating out. It was nice to be so close to the market and to have a choice between the Shoals Club or BHI for our weekly membership. Kathleen was always so responsive and very easy to work with and seemed genuinely interested in making our stay as enjoyable as possible.

Wonderful Trip

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from staying at Palm Cottage. We had a wonderful time. Kathleen was a pleasure to work with and was so helpful. The house was beautiful and well kept. It had everything we could have needed. We LOVED the location, it was so close to the market that I even walked there one day! Thanks again and we hope to be back soon.

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family LOVED this home. It was cozy - tucked away in the trees - but so accessible to the beach and the market! Kathleen was wonderful to work with and she answered all of my questions promptly. I could tell she thoroughly enjoys her home away from home! We will look forward to our next visit in this beautiful home.

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here for 2 weeks last summer and absolutely loved it! It is a beautifully decorated home, great central location and perfect for families with children. My 4 kids loved finding lizards and frogs amidst the trees and the inside of the home is sooo comfortable and family friendly. The kitchen was perfectly appointed with everything we needed to cook and enjoy our vacation. The only thing that would make it even better would be a second golf cart or a 6 person golf cart, although we made it work with one. I would stay here again and again!

"Look no further, honey"

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived at Palm Cottage it was very late in the evening and dark. As we opened the front door we were pleasantly welcomed by the most charming and beautifully decorated cottage. Everything was immaculate and clean, obvious detail had been given to ensure the comfort and pampering of each guest. The kitchen was well stocked, baths were supplied with stacks of fluffy towels, high end quality linens and bedding made for restful sleep and extra comfort. With morning light we had our first peek at the outdoor living space and we were truly amazed at the most beautiful "palm forest" surroundings. Heading out for a morning ride on our bikes we realized what a real jewel the cottage location was. Palm cottage is nestled in the seclusion of the cool maritime forest, yet close proximity to the beach, market and social activities. This setting gave us a quiet and peaceful area to take advantage of delicious meals on the bbq grill and skip indoor cooking while enjoying nature around us.The screened in back porch was divine, furnished with ample comfy wicker furniture and the most unique table for dining alfresco. Lastly, I was most appreciative of the most fabulous owner I have ever worked with. I just loved Kathleen, she is such a pleasant lady, concerned for your needs and extremely informative about BHI.

We hope to return very soon, because, I will look no further, honey!

Great Time

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the Palm Cottage. We went for my daughters 13th birthday and she was thrilled. The cottage was beautifully appointed and the beds were so comfortable! The island is so unique and the cottage is centrally located to everything. The beaches were not over crowded and the weather was pefect.

Kathleen was also wonderful about advising details of the area and places to site see. Looking forward to visiting again in the near future!
