About the property

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Relax on this secluded unobstructed 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 1 mile 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 and the breathtaking sunsets.

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 and new tile installed Feb 2013. This unit is freshly repainted, new wood floors, patio furniture, 3 TVs, washer & dryer, dishwasher, microwave, ceiling fans, stairs to the beach, lower decking and windows all replaced in the last few years. New furnishings and beds in front bedroom in 2016. We also have Comcast cable wireless internet for you to use if you want to check email or do some work while you are staying on the beach. Just bring your laptop.

We have a 5 night minimum stay.

About Brad Roberts

My wife and I purchased this beachfront unit because we love the quiet life on 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.

Brad Roberts purchased this townhome in 2005

Why Brad Roberts chose Palm 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. Properties across the street are less expensive but the best part on being on the island are the views and the sunsets. You will not get these views from across the street. Dolphins are a common sight from our house.

What makes this townhome unique

Our unit has all that you will need. Beach toys, beach chairs & towels just bring food and clothing and start relaxing. Our unit has had over $100,000 in renovations over the past 10 years and the majority of this was done in the last 6 years. It truly is the best unit in the Colony Don Pedro. Don't settle for some of the lower priced units that are "tired". You will not be disappointed when staying at our beach house.

Another great stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at this townhouse, and we enjoyed it just as much as the last time. The owners take very good care of it, and seem to be making improvements all the time. The new bar-height table and chairs on the lower deck really make that a nice area to hang out in. We look forward to our stay again next year!

just what was needed

  • 5 of 5

Even with Tropical Storm Colin closing the Skyway bridge and the ferry to access the island, it did not disrupt a wonderful stay here (just cut it short by a day unfortunately :(((( )

The accomodations were wonderful, the beach empty and yet still so serene with uncommon crashing waves...The highlights of the trip were the very cool paddle through the mangroves, the sea turtle tracks directly in front of the townhouse, and the aability to relax and be away from it all! Thank you for a perfect 50th birthday getaway! Can't wait to come back!!!

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

This has truly been one of the best vacations we've ever had! We were right on the ocean with miles of sandy beach to walk and collect shells and shark teeth (a favorite pastime). There is everything you need for the beach right here, including lounge chairs and nice furniture on the covered deck below the lanai. This is a beautiful townhouse. The owners have made very nice updates throughout. The pictures don't do it justice. It's very clean and beautifully decorated. The screened in lanai is furnished with a table and comfy chairs. It was our favorite place to enjoy our meals and watch the ocean. The sunsets were amazing! We enjoyed our stay and are looking forward to returning next year!

The whole family loved this place!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our stay! Whole family loved it! Condo is very nice and most importantly clean! The beds including the sleeper sofa were all very comfortable. Place was tastefully decorated. Had nice granite countertops in the kitchen. Updated bathrooms. They weren't finished but were working on putting up new trim also. Has a really nice screened in porch and a large deck down below. Also has a deck off the master suite. Would recommend getting a golf cart to get around the island on. We would take the cart to Coconuts for icecream or for dinner at Rum Bay or just to explore. Kids really enjoyed that. We also rented kayaks one day from Castaways. Enjoyed looking for shark teeth or fishing in the ocean and off the docks. However you do need to bring a fishing pole. We purchased one from the local Walmart. Condo does have plenty of boogie boards, sand buckets & toys, umbrella, and beach chairs. Also has plenty of beach towels. The pool is right outside the condo but we never used it. We preferred swimming in the ocean as the water was so warm. It was great!! Looking forward to visiting again!!!!

Owner's Response: It sounds like you all enjoyed your stay at our place. I apologize that the contractors didn't quite finish putting all the new trim up by the time you got there. Our place has been so busy it has been hard to get enough time to get it all done but we think all of the new doors and new window & door trim along with all new baseboards will make it very appealing. Thank you for staying and come back again to enjoy the island life.

Couldn't have asked for more!!! Exactly as described and MORE!

  • 5 of 5


Thank you for providing the perfect place for a beach/boat getaway. Your management team was also extremely helpful as well. The ladies commented several times on how perfectly you have the place decorated and were impressed with the first class accommodations. By the end of the first day everyone was already talking of returning again. I particularly liked the fact that you can also access the property by boat allowing us to bring our own boat over and dock across the road from your unit. Exactly what we were looking for. I can't imagine how anyone would not thoroughly enjoy staying here.

Owner's Response: I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay. We try to keep our place updated and have invested a lot to do this. We are going through another 5 days of updates this week to replace more doors and trim. Thank you for visiting the island and come back soon.

Brad, it was awesome!

  • 5 of 5

Brad, it was awesome! The house was nicely decorated and clean. There was everything in this place. All you need is food. The views are amazing. We fished and caught several, including a shark.

My husband and I love going to Don Pedro. As a matter of fact, I was going to call you guys to arrange a return with the family in Aug or Sept.

Thanks, See ya soon.
