Berginvilla is an extremely well-appointed, custom designed, and decorated single family home. This is your home-away-from-home! Sunsets from your screened-in porch are world class. Walk out your door to a large swimming pool, tennis court and path to the Gulf of Mexico beach. This three bedroom, three and a half bath private home has everything that you could ever dream of. The island is only accessible by car ferry or personal boat....part of the charm of our little island! Unknown to many, this is an ideal location for making family vacation memories. We specialize in relaxing, tranquility, and laid-back times!
It's one our favorite homes to rent. Great living room and view with wrap around porch on three sides. Sliding glass doors open up on all three sides to screened in porch. Large kitchen and great dinning table seats 10-12. Pool was warm nice to swim in. Nice hammock on porch.
Let me start by saying that Berginvilla is very well equipped - the kitchen has everything needed, from the typical coffee maker and blender to plenty of pots, pans, plates, glasses, etc. All of the appliances worked well, the kitchen layout was very workable, and the indoor dining area has plenty of room. We tend to cook most of our meals given the limited choices on the island, so also having the gas grill was great.
The location is also very nice - only steps from the pool and a very short walk to the beach, which is our favorite place to be. This trip we found some of the best shark teeth we've seen in our 4 years coming to the island. The accessible dock was also handy for our chartered fishing trip.
Suzie was very responsive to our requests for help and information and there were no issues with any of the arrangements with the house - it was clean and ready for us when we arrived, which hasn't always been the case with other places so that was much appreciated.
The master bedroom layout was the one challenge we found. Specifically, we could tell from the pictures that the upper level bedroom was open to the lower level. What we couldn't tell was that there were no doors to the bedroom from the first floor, and no door to the bathroom (though there was on the toilet). As a result, there was effectively no privacy in the master bedroom and any sounds traveled both up and down, so taking a nap or having a private conversation was nearly impossible.
So, overall this is a wonderful home with many nice amenities. If you're not concerned with the privacy aspect of the master bedroom, you'll absolutely enjoy it. If privacy is a concern for you, just keep in mind that the master bedroom doesn't offer much of it.
Our two families were able to comfortably enjoy Berginvilla! This was an ideal home for us to catch up and enjoy each other's company. Mary and Ed have a beautiful home that is so well equipped. The kitchen was perfect for creating vacation meals! The cousins were in their glory with the beach and pool. Boogie boarding, shelling, searching for shark's teeth , finding gopher turtles and endless golf cart rides were enjoyed by all!
We have been visiting Palm Island for several years and Berginvilla is by far our favorite! This house was simply gorgeous. The location was perfect. Gorgeous views from the porch of the beach, the pool and tennis courts. Plenty of space for everyone. We have already reserved this house again for next year. Susie was great to work with. Always answered all our questions in a timely manner.
I also love all the extras that come with the house. Beach towels, beach chairs, pool toys, floats, etc. I know next year I don't have to pack as much! :) If you're looking to stay on Palm Island - I recommend Berginvilla 100%!!!
We had an amazing stay at this rental, it was just perfect. The house is beautiful and it was just a short walk to the beach. The house is truly equipped with everything you need, beach towels, chairs and a fully stocked kitchen. Since we had to take a car ferry to get to the island we stopped at the Publix and stocked up on groceries amd once we got on the island we really did not want to leave. Everyone was entertained with the beach, pool , and tennis courts. The porch was the best to sit back relax and enjoy the ocean view. So glad we chose this location we will be back. And Suzie was wonderful to work with she responded to all are questions quickly.
What a wonderful place to relax. The house was amazing, the kitchen had anything you needed, the beds were comfortable, more towels than you ever would need and the best screened porch. There is an enormous selection of books and magazines.
The pool was warm , the beach was one of the best , quiet, clean, close to the house and had millions of shells. A tennis court is right there and only saw it used once. Beach chairs and umbrella were provided.
Suzie was always available and made us feel very welcomed. . Everyone we met or just passed by were very friendly.
We are 3 active senior and will be back..
We have stayed in many vacation houses and this was one of the best.
Enjoy our abundance of marine life, wildlife and tropical flora. Explore our pristine beach, with endless shelling. Swim, fish or just relax. This is what 'Island Time' is all about. Part of the charm of the island is getting here! The island is only accessible by car ferry or personal boat. Many family vacation memories are made here!
