Beachview Duplex With Pool, Dock, And Hot Tub. Seconds From The Sand Or Fishing,

The Blue Heron on Palm Island has a spectacular view of the Gulf of Mexico and is just steps from the sand. THE HOUSE IS A DUPLEX, BUT IT IS RENTED AS ONE HOME---YOU RENT BOTH SIDES OF THE DUPLEX.

We have just completed an EXTENSIVE REMODEL both in and outside of the home. We have added granite countertops, tiling, hardwood floors, pebbling in the pool and hot tub, new windows, roof, etc. New pictures to come soon.

Amenities include: pool, hot tub, lounge area, grill, 3 bedrooms, two sleeper sofas and two full kitchens.

Recently renovated with large windows showcase the view of the Gulf of Mexico. The home is a duplex with two entrances; perfect for extended family or teens who wish for privacy. Most visitors spend the day on the beach or choose to boat the Gulf of Mexico. Our rear dock has no bridges to the intracoastal or Gulf of Mexico.

Palm island is a bridge-less barrier island with no bridges to incumber boating access to the Gulf of Mexico. The island abuts Don Pedro State Park, which allows additional access to wildlife, flora, and fauna. We are a golf cart community, but allow access for vehicles via ferry. A round trip ferry pass is included in the rental, additional passes can be bought at owner's cost.

Our manager lives on island and is available 24/7 for questions or a helping hand.

                                                              Really close to the Beach!!!!

                                                              Nice clean house. Had two kitchens, a lot to keep up with .

                                                              Free golf cart was really nice. Loved how clean the beach was.

                                                              Spring Break 2018

                                                              Peter L.

                                                              The pool and hot tub were in excellent condition. The place was recently updated and was perfect for our needs. Very clean and spacious. Proximity to beach and resort were great for access and movement throughout the day.

                                                              Awesome! A week in heaven!

                                                              sandy j.

                                                              The Blue Heron was delightful! Great location. Quiet. Lovely pool area. The golf cart was a bonus and we enjoyed driving down to the resort for dinner. The beach is gorgeous and you can walk for miles. The ferry fee was a surprise but we really appreciated the complimentary pass for our first trip across. If you plan on making any day trips, you might want to park on the mainland side and use the golf cart to go back and forth to the ferry. Boca Grande was a fun day trip for the teens to get their shopping jitters out! Bob, the manager, was very helpful and responded promptly to our calls. Nice having the separate area with its own bed, bath and kitchen. We hope to return some day!

                                                              great place

                                                              Tina H.

                                                              Great location, not on beach but a close walk. Great pool area. Communication with Barbara was easy and everything was ready for when we arrived.

                                                              We loved hosting your family. Your children are well mannered and just darling! Hope to see your family next year!

                                                              Overall it was a nice place but would recommend a new cleaning lady.

                                                              Tammy K.

                                                              The house itself was ok but could have used a good cleaning. My husband and I stayed in the smaller side and found out really soon that the air conditioner wasn't working, we did call Bob and he at first told us there wasn't much he could do but after a second call he did bring us one of his air conditioners to use. Our daughter's rental car plans were mixed up the day we were leaving and I took her to the airport, my husband stayed behind and made sure he had everything packed up and out of the house and down stairs under the house to wait on me, the cleaning lady showed up and she was very RUDE and hateful and that is putting it nicely!

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              The air conditioner(s) are FULLY functional. The unit for the smaller side of the home needed freon. It is now in full running order. We have a full time on island manager who would have gladly fixed the situation...if he had been notified.

                                                              As to our beloved guest's complaint about the cleaning staff I may need to provide some context. One female guest decided to disregard checkout times and sleep in very late. My cleaning supervisor arrived, as the house should have been long vacant, and found not only a lingering guest but a giant mess. Days worth of dirty dishes, filthy clothes strewn about the house, the stove AND walls full of dried food, etc. etc. I take PRIDE in the cleaning staff. They do an outstanding job. When a guest treats our home without respect she should not be surprised that our diligent supervisor has a less than pleasant look on her face.

                                                              Outstanding Holiday!

                                                              Barbara W.Iowa

                                                              We are Canadian and stay on the island every year. The beaches are white , sandy, and pristine. The package that the owner put together for us included a free golf cart. It was a welcome surprise. We will be booking with this gal again!!

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              We enjoyed your visit, and would love to host your beautiful family again.

                                                              Good Day Canadian Friends!
