About the property

The beach is your backyard here with 100 linear ft. of private beach

Gracious beachfront home on Palm Island. 3 bedrooms /3.5 baths – sleeps 8 with elevator. You will enjoy 100 linear ft. of private beach and a deep water dock connected to property just across the street for fishing or docking your boat/jetski. Ocean views are from every room in the house. There is a large raised deck under the house. There is a 60 ft. deck on back of house overlooking the ocean and a private screened deck off the master suite. The house lends itself to complete relaxation. There is a great gourmet kitchen for family meals including a bar with both wine and beverage refrigerators. It is all about relaxation here. The beach is just steps out the back door. With a great outdoor shower when you get back from a day on the beach. You will find no highrises on this beach, just miles of beautiful sand and clean water. This is old Florida natural at it’s best the shelling, shore birds and great fishing. It is common to see manatees and dolphins while sitting on the porches. This island is equally distanced between the Sarasota and Ft. Myers airports. It is accessible by boat or car ferry. This is a fisherman's paradise and anyone's ultimate relaxation holiday getaway.

About Melanie Kravecas

It only took one vacation trip to the island to know we really wanted to own a piece of paradise. We love the island and the slower pace. Someday we hope to spend most of our time here.

Melanie Kravecas purchased this house in 2007

Why Melanie Kravecas chose Florida South West

Lovely home with fabulous views (even from the kitchen). Nicely decorated and very comfortable. We cooked all our meals for a week, enjoying a new grill, warming drawer and more. We were two couples and we had plenty of privacy and space to read, work, watch TV, listen to music, etc. Morning walks to the resort nearby or on the beach were special.

What views

  • 4 of 5

We chose this home for our annual Thansgiving week get together, it was spacious, had great views of the beach and is located on a quaint island. If you are looking for relaxation and comfort I highly recommend it . The owner and the care taker are very friendly and responsive to all needs.

My family spent 7 full days of swimming, kayaking, fishing, bike riding, sight seeing, reading, searching for shells and turtles at this wonderful home. We highly recommend at least a week long stay at minimal to do as much or as little as you wish.

Beautiful house and location. Saw Dolphins, birds other fish and a manatee swam 2 ft away from me as he was heading up the beach line. Melanie thought of everything anyone would ever need for a beach vacation, just loved this vacation home, beautiful panoramic views of the gulf coast and the house is beautifully decorated. Thank you for a wonderful stay! Carol Eagle

Amazing home

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect! The location is breathtaking, the decor is impeccable and the home itself is spotless! Everything was thoughtfully prepared for us before we arrived and the owner was so helpful and lovely. The AC went out for only an hour before the on site manager and repairman showed up and had it fixed within 45 minutes. Even they were great!

You just cannot believe how wonderful this vacation was! Don't hesitate for a minute!
