Perfect week at ESCAPE on Palm Island

  • 5 of 5

This vacation home was perfect for our two families. Grandparents had the Master Suite upstairs, and it was great. Never even heard the grandchildren in the mornings--until we wanted to! The home was wonderful inside, everything we needed was there. The outside living areas were the best. Pool, Outside living room right there, Fridge a step away, outside shower - it was like paradise. We rented a golf cart to zip around to the MANY choices of beaches on the island. Our biggest decision of the day was what time to start Happy Hour! Very fun. Next time we would try and find a golf cart rental that could meet us at the Ferry. We all rented cars and really only used them from airport to was golf cart from then on. Cannot wait to go back.

Wonderfully relaxing week

  • 5 of 5

The house was great. Even better than the pictures show. Fishing off the dock was really good. Perfect canal for kayaking and paddle boarding. Spent a lot of our time in the pool or exploring the un crowded beach. The cabana is the perfect place to relax and watch TV.

A very nice location with lots of things to do to keep adults and kids happy

  • 5 of 5

A very nice location for going to beach or staying at site and swimming in pool. The kitchen was well stocked with necessary dishes, cookware for feeding our group of nine. Plenty of TVs inside and outside. Large sitting area outside with plenty of seating. A very nice place I would go to again

Nice, roomy, lots of places to be together or get away from each other. Not fancy but comfy.

It was better than expected. A great laid back atmosphere. Bikes, kayak, nature, pool, hot tub, dock, beach, shells, So much fun with our large family. We didn't even need to rent a golf cart. The kids said it was the best Christmas gift ever!

Quite nice

  • 4 of 5

Spacious and clean. The master bedroom is on the 2nd floor(3 stories up),up a spiral staircase. The master bath was lovely spacious- the only issue was the shower head had been broken and patched up so it was a little shaky. The King bed in the master is NOT a king bed , but rather two twins stuck side by side, and they were the pits, drooping in the centre terribly.

Main floor: 1 bedroom with very soft king bed; 3rd bedroom with 2 bunk beds,1 was a double on bottom.The mattresses in those were very thick thus, younger kids would not be safe on the top bunks.

The kitchen appliances were very good, water was excellent and lots of room in the fridge, 2 coffee machines. There were issues with the sink on the garbage disposal side and the garbage disposal was not working properly so we bagged the food waste.

The remainder of the 1st floor is comprised of a tv and couch, with a tiny bar type table and 4 stools in the corner. So in other words, meals were eaten outside on the covered porch or at the counter and on the bar table. No dining area in the house.

The pool was great, the hot tub too. The gazebo on the ground level beside the pool area had 2 tvs,a nice sitting set and a large table.We did not use the bar area by the pool or the extra room adjacent the bar.

We inquired about the fishing gear and were told that there were 5 rods:we found 3-one of which my husband (who is quite handy ) had to fix. But that was ok, and the kids had lots of fun catching cat fish.

The bikes had flat tires and the inflator's attachment was broken, no biking for the kids. The kayak was fun, although it's a little hard to get into a kayak from a dock.

The beach was a 10 minute walk down the street.Quiet and beautiful. Wonderful shelling ,but not so much that it was sore on the feet, though we were taken aback as there were lots of dead fish.

The pool/spa are the main features of this property.

Check-out is at 10.The cleaning lady showed up 20 minutes early and started to pick up in the rooms WHILE we were packing the car and gathering our belongings.We had washed/folded all the towels, done all the dishes. She should have waited until we left as she was in the way. Terrible lack of decorum.
