The Palms is the vacation Florida beach house with a panoramic view of Gulf of Mexico, private white beaches and paved Bike Path. Bob Sykes Cut (One Of The Best Fishing spots) is minutes away from the house.
The Palms is located in The Plantation, 24/7 gated community, which hosts a new, large swimming pool.
Upstairs kitchen, dinning room, living area, two furnished decks and screened porch provide a great place to enjoy a view of the Gulf. The large kitchen is completely furnished with dishes, microwave, grill, ice maker, pans, coffee maker, blender, etc. You can enjoy the view of Gulf while preparing your meal. The Bay side screened porch provides a great place to enjoy any evening.
Four bedrooms with queen size beds and a second living area are downstairs. Please take a look at our video at the bottom of this page.
The Palms is pet friendly home.
The Island and The Palms, all of the pleasures of the good life will be yours here
A second living area is downstairs and is also equipped with a cable TV/VCR.
The downstairs has four large bedrooms (2 of which are masters), 2 baths, and the living area. Each bedroom is provided with a queen size bed. Two bedrooms have TVs, and one bedroom has a PC computer with Microsoft Office XP and connection to the Internet.
Our guests have easy access to the pools and tennis courts provided by the Plantations. We have several bikes, beach chairs and beach toys in our storage. You are welcome to use them when you stay in our house. The natural beauty that surrounds The Palms Retreat offers all sorts of entertainment: Enjoy watching the birds during the day with binoculars. We provide a handbook so that even the beginning bird watcher can learn about birds. Also watch the planets and stars with our telescope in the evening.
An early morning stroll at the beach is almost a guarantee to see dolphins put on show for you in the Gulf. It's not uncommon to see them swim up as close as 150 feet to the shore, and you will certainly be impressed by their power. The sidewalks in the neighborhood offer a great opportunity to jog, bike, roller blade, or walk. The island is also a great place to catch up on your fishing, either from a boat or the coast. We are located a 5 minute walk along the beach from the rocky canal at the Northwest end of the island that is known as a prime fishing spot.

Just home from a fantastic ten days staying in this terrific house. It was everything we could ask for, clean, comfortable, easy access to the beach, open airy floor plan, great decks for a Gulf view. Will definitely consider renting again!
House was as advertised. Very clean and comfortable. Just a short walk to the beach. Owners were easy to work with and very accommodating. This is our second times staying in The Palms and we are planning another one in the coming year.
Thank you for your hospitality
Jack & family
House was pretty. Beds were most uncomfortable beds I've slept in. Cleanliness was 5 star however I can inform you bring your own toilet paper. I've never stayed somewhere where they only supply half roll of toilet paper per bathroom. The owners kept terrific communication with us. The only thing I hated about the place was there is NO cable. You can't watch any local channels (hurricane Mathew was hitting Florida on east coast and we couldn't keep up with anything local. They supply those ruku and fire sticks but the Internet speed is pretty slow you have to watch movies a little slow! Also watch who watches the televisions because it's easy To purchase things. My wife purchased 3 things and didn't know she had. Pretty sure if we were going to purchase something it would be something besides Alena of Avatar or Sophia the first lol they deducted it from our deposit which I understand but why would anybody store their credit card info for this to happen! Overall I give it a 3 star. This rental has great potential however I believe they need to find new maintenance people to upkeep their property.
I don't have any big complaints, but I also can't say it was what I expected or would have chosen. Overall, it could use a few simple updates to make it much more comfortable. Big updates are needed and it just didn't have a clean feeling because it is older and dated...., but just starting with things such as new bedding and towels would make a much better impression.
The owners were great to work with, prompt in responses.
What a lovely and spacious home. The decks and screened porch added even more room. There were eight of us but we never felt like we were in each others way. The kitchen is well stocked for when you want to cook and the beds are comfy too. All in all it was a great experience and we are making plans to come back next year.
We just got back from the island where we spent two wonderful weeks.
Everybody in our family of eight had a great time. The weather was good, the house was comfortable, and clean. We enjoyed the multitude of birds, herons, owls, bald eagles; sugar white beaches and awesome bike trail. This is our second year on the island and at The Palms. The owners are taking good care and very accommodating. We noticed some changes since last year, such as upgraded TVs and a new carpet. We'll be back again next year.
You will not find high rise condominiums, congestion, or crowds. Swimming, shelling, fishing and sunning all await you here; if you want a peaceful getaway, this is the place to be. Wonderful seafood restaurants are located on the island and in nearby East Point, Apalachicola, and Carrabelle. Also, enjoy nine miles of scenic beauty in St. George Island State park located at the eastern end of the island.
Please take a look at this map. Leisure Lane is banding towards The Gulf and brings our house very close to The Gulf.
And this is where you want to be. We are also very close to Bob Sykes Cut. About 10 minutes walking on the beach. It is a very well known and one of the best fishing spot in Panhandle Florida. Only Plantation owners and their guests could fish their.
