Why Blake Monroe chose Palm Island

We fell in love with Palm Island in 1982 while staying at a friends island home. We did not realize that such pristine 'natural Florida' preserves still existed...and all within a stones throw of the mainland. Wide white sandy beaches, great shelling and fishing...and no crowds! If you see 6 or 7 people within sight, it is a normal day. It is like having the beach all to yourself. My family are avid fishermen too! When not at the beach, you will find us fishing off of the dock, on the kayak fishing the inshore waters just off the dock, or fishing the beach. We are happy to give our guests detailed information as to what tackle to have on hand and exactly where to cast and how to fish our best spots! When we are not relaxing by the pool, we can also be found scooting around the island via golfcart to view the beautiful scenery and awsome beach sunsets! Ahhhh...paradise on Palm Island Florida.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I wanted to let you know what a wonderful week we had at the Grand Cayman! It's the most relaxing place we've ever stayed at, and you were right...the best seat in the house is the dock! We enjoyed many an early morning coffee or early evening glass of wine watching the fish, birds and the total peace and quiet. Long beach walks and shell collecting were also wonderful. We are both full of envy that you have a haven so close to where you live to get away from it all and totally unwind. I will of course be recommending your beautiful home to friends who are looking for an "away for it all holiday" and I know that we will be back soon ourselves. Sue

An oasis perfect for a relaxing vacation...

  • 4 of 5

This home is lovely with plenty of room for the family. The landscaping is beautifully maintained and the kids love the waterfall in the pool! Driving the golf carts around and to the beach was great! The "beach" bikes let us work off the calories from eating all the fish caught off the dock.

Thank you, Blake and Kim, for a wonderful week (and for the fishing tips).

Amazing week on the island - everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks so much for such a great vacation! We had my sister and 3 little ones and this home satisfied everyone's needs. A beautiful lanai and outdoor pool set the scene for our view of Kettle Harbor, where we kept our rental boat for the week. Blake took so much time to talk with my husband about the fishing and personally took him fishing to give him tips on how to catch snook. Fishing was awesome and all of us caught an array of snook, ladyfish, sea trout, jacks and pinfish. My husband caught pompano surf fishing too on the beach, which is really closeby. Right off the dock at this home we saw dolphins and manatees. Great kayaking if you're up for it and there's a cool lagoon passage just up the way for you to explore and bird watch. Cannot say enough about the space. Terrific set/up and finishes throughout the home. Make sure you explore some of the goings on at the Palm Island Resort. Blake made sure we knew what was going on there for the kiddos and there are lots of fun events, such as face painting and a pirate show. Even without the shows, this is a fun place to go to get ice cream at Coconuts. We'll definitely be back - thanks again to Blake for all the tips!

Map

This area is famous for its Tarpon fishing at Boca Grande Pass, and giant Snook and Redfish! The Manatee's play in front of our dock and in the harbor on a regular basis. The island is very narrow, and the beach is on the next street over, giving you the best of both worlds in boating, fishing, and easy beach access!

Other Activities: kayaking, boating, miniature golf.

Golf: Palm Island is surrounded by many local golf courses on the mainland. Most are within 1 to 9 miles from the island.
