Don Pedro Island Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Well equipped Gulf Front townhouse with community pool, tennis courts & dockage.

NEW TO THE MARKET - FIRST TIME BEING OFFERED FOR RENT!!! GULF FRONT 2 BEDROOMS AND 2-1/2 BATHS!

DIRECTLY on the GULF of MEXICO, very nice two bedroom two and one-half bath townhouse. Located on the BEACH with dockage, tennis court and a fantastic gulf front pool! Fabulous, expansive gulf views. There is a screened porch on the main level, and an upstairs balcony off of the master bedroom. All of the appliances are in very nice condition, as well as new paint, laminate floors – with well equipped bathrooms and an easy to use kitchen with a full snack bar. Fully equipped and ready for your enjoyment. Other new items include, flat screen televisions, quaint artwork, most of the furniture, kayak, linens and towels, kitchen equipment, glassware, plates, silverware, etc. The list goes on and on! Also includes cable television and wireless internet access. Please inquire for more details and specifics about this great gulf front vacation rental.

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.

Bring your boat or rent one for the ultimate in Florida lifestyle. Our community dock will accommodate a boat up to 22 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 (aka 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 and additional pet deposit. 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!

About Owner/Manager

We live in New Jersey and have been traveling to the Gulf Coast beaches for our recreation and vacations for over 10 years. The boating is fantastic and our time with our family has created a bunch of fond memories for us. Most Florida beaches are overbuilt and congested – it's hard to find a beach with so few people and so underdeveloped. Quite refreshing to say the least. We chose Don Pedro Island (Palm Island) for the natural beauty and 'Old Florida' feel. This chain of islands just may be the last true Florida beach you can walk down (7 miles long) and hardly see another person. We also liked that there are no beach bars and no high-rise buildings. It is the best of Old Florida, natural, unspoiled and a genuine paradise.

Owner/Manager purchased this townhome in 2014

Why Owner/Manager chose Don Pedro Island

We decided to purchase a home here for the unspoiled beauty of the island and the area in general. Englewood is a low-key Old Florida 'beach town' that reminds you of how Florida looked many years ago, without the huge high-rise condominiums and massive hotels clogging the beach. There are plenty of local 'home-grown' shops and restaurants and the fishing is some of the best in world. The beaches are fantastic and the boating is world-class. If you are looking for a great family area that is close to everything, but far away from the congestion, traffic and noise, you'd be hard pressed to find a better place. The only way to get on and off the island is by a 3 minute car ferry ride. Having no bridge to the island allows for a semi-private atmosphere and keeps beach going traffic to an absolute minimum. The island is all residential other than the resort area at the north end of Palm Island which offers a quality restaurant, deli and ice cream shoppe and small convenience store. Most all of the island traffic is by golf cart.

What makes this townhome unique

Staying on the island is not for everyone. If you like lots of places to shop, tourist attractions, beach bars and chain restaurants, this isn't the place for you. On the other hand, if you are looking for uncrowded and unspoiled beaches, great kayaking, fishing and dipping your toes in the Gulf of Mexico, this may be just the place. It's for a couple or family that wants some serious down-time ... a place to unplug and recharge your batteries and enjoy some great family time. Our house is pet-friendly with laminate floors and carpet upstairs, with two Gulf Front porches along with a smaller deck downstairs. You'll also enjoy the community pool and tennis courts if you're so inclined. We are also the end unit with some great views of the pool area and added privacy. The beach is right out your door and literally steps to the Gulf of Mexico! It's a truly amazing place.

Exceptional!

Miami? Ft. Lauderdale? Crowded beaches and overpriced...everything? You can have it! I had never been to the west coast of Florida, but now that I have, this will be my destination of choice from here on out. Don Pedro Island is amazing, and this residence is the jewel in the crown! When we arrived, we found ourselves in a cozy and extremely comfortable two bedroom condo with direct beach access...literally 100 paces to the lapping waves of the gulf coast. The sunsets alone were enough to make this trip worthwhile : ) The beaches are pristine, and there were very few people on them. It makes you feel as if you are staying on a private beach! The water was clear and felt amazing, and on more than one occasion we found ourselves frolicking less than 50 yards from where dolphins were swimming. Amazing! And, we even got a chance to talk to the "turtle lady", who was out each morning marking out areas where the sea turtles had laid their eggs the night before. Truly, a magical place.

The accommodations were as advertised...and more. The condo has updated furnishings and came complete with plates, cookware, etc., which made for easy preparation of meals that could be enjoyed on the patio facing the beach. We enjoyed grilling on the provided BBQ, which made our family feel like we were having a true "beach" vacation. The rooms are large and the beds comfortable, and each came with it's own adjoined bathroom. It didn't take long to feel as if you were at your very own summer beach house, which is something quite unique and...the complete opposite of staying at a hotel or resort. I would not hesitate to stay here again, and would recommend it to anyone interested in a truly unique, relaxing vacation.

NOTE: Do your shopping ahead of time and bring lots of groceries with you to fill up the full sized fridge...there aren't really any stores on the island to get items you may want to cook.
But, then....that's the fun of being on an island. Just plan ahead where food and drink is concerned.

Located on Don Pedro Island. Access to the island is by car or passenger ferry only which allows for some of the most pristine natural Florida beaches you will ever encounter. One of the last true beach front areas that has not been overdeveloped - a true 'old florida' experience like no other.
