Palm Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths (Sleeps 4-6)

Enjoy the unspoiled ''old Florida'' style beach retreat of Tarpon Lodge. This is one of the most affordable rentals on beautiful Palm Island, a barrier island, accessible only by car ferry or boat, near Boca Grande Island and world famous tarpon fishing. Seven miles of pristine beaches, loaded with sea shells but not people. Tarpon Lodge is situated directly on Kettle Harbor and the inter-coastal waterway which offers tranquil water views and is only minutes from the Gulf of Mexico. This home is cozy and comfortable and even has a very cool, enclosed outdoor shower which is part of the downstairs bedroom and bath. Everything you need is here to make your vacation in paradise the best ever.

This is the place to truly relax and forget the rest of the world. If you are looking for peace and quiet, beautiful sugar sand beaches, the best shelling anywhere, playing in the water, spectacular sunsets, amazing fishing - both surf fishing and boat fishing, and just enjoying being with your family and friends then get out your calendar and starting planning your trip today!

For reasons beyond our control we weren't able to return last year so when we arrived this year, I wondered if it could possibly live up to my memories. From the fishing on the dock, cocktails on the deck, outdoor shower & shelling on the beautiful beach ~ it just couldn't be any better. We love staying here & we are in love with the island. It's all just perfect & the owners have been more than obliging. Thank you for another wonderful vacation!

LOVE this place. Perfect location, with all the amenities. Waking up to the sound of only the Ospreys, a true delight. The owners are really easy to work with, honest, and reliable. We are going to go back as often as possible, and are hoping to bring our extended family with us next year for our annual vacation.

Nice and Quiet - very relaxing

Spent a long weekend at Palm Island property, place is small but quaint. Enjoyed the nice quiet canal and sitting out on the back porch watching the Osprey fly around. Had to use the golf cart to get to the beach, enjoyed the sunsets that were absolutely spectacular. Snorkeling, shelling, and finding sharks teeth were at its best. Seeing God in nature is the most beautiful and relaxing experience.

We chose this rental for our getaway at home, only living about an hour north of the island my husband and I decided to take a mini vacation somewhere local. The island was fantastic and the house was perfect for us! We had a great stay and loved fishing off the dock!
