Coquina Cove is the home that started it all on Palm Island (aka Don Pedro Island). We actually had VRBO create the Palm Island category over 10 years ago! One of the most popular rental homes on the island! Why? That's easy. It's the quintessential beach house, cozy, quaint, exceptionally clean, incredibly well equipped and one of the ONLY homes on the island with a fenced yard so your furry companion is safe and can enjoy the island as much as you. Read our reviews, it's the most reviewed home on the entire island! Welcome to Coquina Cove!
Coquina Cove is your very own private tropical oasis in the sun. This wonderful, very well kept, two bedroom, two bath lagoon-front home offers great Gulf and water views from every room, warm Gulf breezes and your own private dock. Decorated in a tropical island style you’ll enjoy quiet walks down the beach with hardly a person in sight!
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 right out the back door, 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. The private dock will accommodate a single 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 (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 four - five comfortably. No smoking. Pets allowed with owner's permission, additional pet deposit and fee per pet applies. Fenced area for your convenience. Open floor plan. Fully equipped kitchen. Nice screened patio that opens into the living room. Master bedroom with private bath. cable TV, wifi, hammock, hot tub and more!

I grew up in Florida and as a child and teenager we would always head over to the Gulf Coast beaches for our recreation and vacations. It was a lot of fun and holds a bunch of fond memories for me. Back then, the Gulf Coast was less discovered and certainly less developed. Today, 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 high-rise buildings. It is the best of Old Florida, natural, unspoiled and a genuine paradise.
Julie purchased this House in 2003
Why Julie chose Placida
We bought 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, ice cream/deli shoppe and sundries store. Most all of the island traffic is by golf cart.
What makes this House 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 un-crowded and un-spoiled beaches, great kayaking, fishing and swinging in a hammock under some breezy palms, 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 tile floors throughout, a private outdoor shower (which is great for pets!) and one of the only island homes with a tasteful fenced in yard. We always travel with our pets and we know many of you won't leave home without yours either. After all, they're part of the family. There's an entertainment area under the house with a very nice gas grill, bar area, table and chairs and a hot tub. Out back, you'll enjoy a private dock overlooking the lagoon with dock lights and water. On the property you'll see plenty of Gopher Tortoise and native birds. Our landscaping is all Florida native and offers a very private environment.

If relaxing on a beautiful beach is your thing... you found it here
From the moment we inquired about the house Julie was very responsive. The house was exactly like described and more. We arrived a few hours early and were greeted by the cleaning gal, which was very friendly and helpful with Island tips. We so enjoyed relaxing on the back porch and the hot tub in the evenings. The golf cart was a big plus, we drove it down to the resort twice to have appetizers and enjoy the sunset at the end of the island. The furniture was all very cozy and the linens were all wonderful.
Perfect getaway from hustle and bustle of life.
The most relaxing vacation we have ever had. The house is beautifully decarated. Everything you needed like chairs, umbrellas, fishing rods where available. We will come back.
Had a great stay at Coquina Cove. Everything was as stated and very clean and well maintained. Looking forward to coming back again soon.
Great place! We really got to relax in this house and we’re never bored. From fishing to beach time.
This is a great house! Set up perfectly! We really enjoyed sitting out back and grilled steaks two nights with nice wine then hit the hot tub! Many different wild life on the island too. I will deffentitly refer this to friends!
Thanks Steve & Joan! You were wonderful guests, and we hope you can make it back to the island again in the future.
Wonderful, immaculate, well appointed home.
We stayed for two weeks and could have stayed longer. Great fishing, beach walks, taking a hot tub in the evenings. What more could you ask for? Not a thing. Everything we needed. Thank you, Dale and Julie! We loved every minute!
Thank you Katherine and Michael for being such great guests!
Boat dock with water and fish cleaning station.
