No crowds here, just miles of unspoiled, 100% natural Florida (the way it used to be!). World renowned shelling, fantastic sunsets, bird watching galore, kayaking, dolphins, gopher tortoise, and a lively lagoon where fish jump all day long. Don Pedro State park is a short walk down the beach. You’ll want to capture the Island’s charm by traveling via golf cart, we rarely use cars here. Golf cart rental is available which is almost new and in excellent condition.
Bring your boat or rent one for the ultimate in Florida lifestyle. Our community dock will accommodate a boat up to 20 feet. Like to fish? Fish right off the dock or try your luck surf fishing or book a charter with one of the local guides for a thrilling day of sport fishing or backwater challenges. Trout, Redfish, Snook, Tarpon and Grouper are just a few of the many species that call our waters home.
Don Pedro Island (Palm Island) is a barrier island and a stones throw from the mainland. You’ll arrive via a short car ferry ride that takes about three minutes. Our island has a terrific resort that offers a casual restaurant, ice cream/deli shop, sundries store and a pirate show for the kids. The island is almost all single family homes so you’ll quickly find it has a pristine 'non-commercial” family feel. There are no large high-rise resorts, beach bars or traffic and noise. If you’re looking for that place in the sun that you can actually hear the wind whistle through the palms - you’ve found your place.
Off island you’ll be close to restaurants, shops, golf courses and world famous Boca Grande as well as other attractions. As we like to say... civilization is close but not too close. Boca Grande offers exclusive shopping, dining and sightseeing. By boat you can reach Cayo Costa Island State Park and Cabbage Key where Jimmy Buffet was inspired to write 'Cheeseburger In Paradise.' Do it all, or do nothing at all, that’s the “island” lifestyle. It’s laid back, always casual (leave your tie at home) and Florida at its best.
Sleeps six comfortably. No smoking. Pets allowed with owner's permission, additional pet deposit and fee per pet applies. Spacious, open floor plan. Fully equipped kitchen. Nice screened porch that opens into the living room. Master bedroom with private bath and beachfront balcony. Don Pedro/Palm Island is an experience like no other. Come to our island and see why so many have fallen in love with this little 'slice' of paradise!

We've been vacationing on Palm Island for many years and searched from one end of Florida to the other before we purchased a home here. We loved it so much that we bought two other homes on the island that are also listed for rent on VRBO. Palm Island (aka Don Pedro Island) is one of (if not the last) old Florida locations that has managed to stay small and has not been over-run by huge beach condos and commercial businesses. It's a true paradise found and quickly becoming one of the very last places like this in the entire state.
Julie purchased this Townhome in 2014
Why Julie chose Placida
We own two units in our building (there are only four units per building). The layouts can't be beat and are incredibly spacious and very well designed. Cruz Del Sur has been very well maintained and has been nicely remodeled. We added a "ship's bunk" under the stairs which is is very popular with adults and children. We love coming to the island and so will you!
What makes this Townhome unique
Cruz Del Sur has a great downstairs deck with an outdoor shower that's private enough to use just about whenever you wish. We have Kayaks and beach chairs and the Gulf of Mexico is steps away from your Gulf front home. The community pool (which is rarely used) is right next door. You'll also enjoy sweeping Gulf views from the living room and master bedroom. The upper deck off the master bedroom is a sanctuary on its own and the sunsets are spectacular. The house is fully equipped and very casual. In the evenings, the warm breezes and sky full of stars over the Gulf of Mexico are priceless. There's nothing like staying at a beach front home, it is truly a work of art and your very own front row seat to the best of Florida.

A truly amazing place to stay....
The views are incredible, the place is very spacious and clean, and the owners as well as the property manager are great people. Would certainly stay again!
It is a Great Spot!!
Loved our stay at Diane’s condo!!! It is clean, attractive, Spectacular location with a beach side pool and tennis court as an added bonus. We highly recommend it, and can’t wait to come back to Palm Island and this condo!!!
We had a wonderful time! Such a beautiful place in paradise. They have everything you could want or need. Owners were a delight to work with. Looking forward to another stay!
Great, Relaxing Paradise
This was our family’s first stay here, and we had a great time. The townhouse is in a great location if your looking for a relaxing, low key stay. Townhouse was very comfortable and private. The kayaks, fishing gear, tennis rackets and beach chairs were in great shape and well enjoyed. We plan to stay again!
Beautiful view of Gulf and charming decor.
Only complaint was tennis court was unusable due to Hurricane Irma damage. Condo Association working on getting it repaired. Loved use of bikes and kayaks.
Glad you liked the Gulf view, and yes unfortunately our tennis court sustained some damage due to hurricane IRMA. Our island and homes gladly did not!!
The condo association is working hard to make the necessary repairs, and we hopefully can offer tennis courts soon the our rental guests.
Calm peaceful serene
Our suggestion for 418 would be a king size bed in the master br. Very accomodating otherwise. Also another dining option on the island or an upgrade at Rum Bay. Hope to be back!
Unspoiled, uncrowded and unbelievable location. It's old Florida at its best. One of the best beaches in the world and certainly one of the best in Florida. World-class Boca Grande is very close and Englewood offers some quaint shopping and local restaurants. It's an old Florida beach town that has managed to stay connected to a slower pace and tropical living.
