A very relaxing stay
We love the laid back feel of the island. The house was comfortable and the pool was great. The more we learn about the island the more interesting it is!
Great house and location. Second time we have stayed at this house. Great pool and kayaks were fun!
Renting was easy through the website and owner is very responsive.
Great family getaway!
Great house, great island, and great owner/manager. We loved our getaway escape to Palm Island and can’t wait to return someday!
Always love our stay here!
This is the 2nd time we have stayed here and we love it. Easy access for our boat. Close to the beach. Nice fishing from the dock. Manatees and dolphins very close. Kayaks, bicycles, and many amenities for our use. Rented a golf cart to cruise the island. Fridge had been upgraded from our previous stay so we had more room. The only thing I would suggest is an upgrade to the beds. Not very comfortable. Overall we will definitely be back again next year and always look forward to it. Thank you!!!
Shells galore, amazing porch, gorgeous pool
This is a great house! Very nice layout of large master on one side, with two good sized bedrooms on the other end.
The island itself is wonderful. Don't be put off by the ferry, it's very nearly on demand, never took more than fifteen minutes. Staff was friendly and helpful.
The reduced car traffic on the island makes running around on golf carts quite fun and safe. We enjoyed this so much! And the beaches are nearly empty. Beautiful and serene.
From the house to the beach is about a 3 minute golf cart ride. There's a nice public trail to the beach that requires about a 30 yard walk to the beach. It might be difficult for those with severe disability, but was short and easy for most of us, including my 80 year old father.
Plentiful shells on the beach!! And ancient shark's teeth, which were very fun to hunt. Fishing from the beach was also quite good, we caught several mackeral. We didn't have as much luck from the dock, but in fairness, we didn't spend more than twenty minutes trying. The dock is in good shape with a nice fish cleaning station. The only thing we noticed is that cleats would have been nice for tying off the boat. Water in the canal and at the dock were plentiful even at low tide.
The key positive features of this home are the back screened porch: HUGE! Plenty of room for us all to gather for meals, and have another area for jigsaw puzzles, and the end for kids to play. Such a nice layout. We primarily lived on the back porch. The yard is another huge bonus. It's gorgeously landscaped with native plants giving it a very tropical feel. Great cover on both sides and the back of the house giving very good privacy from all sides. The australian pine trees (Casuarina) along the side were so loved! There's just nothing like listening to the breeze "sing" in those trees. It makes the most lovely symphony!! It also affords a bit of afternoon shade which is much needed by that time of day. The rest of the day, the pool is mostly in full sun which will suit most tourists.
Outdoor shower and sandbox were huge hits!! Renting golf carts from Barbara was a breeze.
I would recommend a few more average sized pots in the kitchen, a good scrub of master shower, checking lights and fans on back porch, repair dishwasher, new mattress in master.
Overall, it's an outstanding house in an outstanding location.
Peaceful and Comfortable
We loved this home , it was clean and very comfortable. The Kitchen is well equipped with everything we needed and the grill was clean . The master bedroom is huge with a very nice bath and large walk-in closet ( great place for our suitcases ) The pool is a nice size and very clean with tons of pool toys . The dock was well kept and great for fishing. Thanks Scott for sharing your beautiful home .
Shell Collecting..this is a great place for finding shells on the empty beaches of Palm Island.
