Overview

Florida South Central Gulf Coast Villa Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 6

Palm Island Resort, located on Florida’s Southwest Gulf Coast, is the state’s only true-out island resort. There are no bridges or causeways to the island, which ensures a relaxed, tropical vacation setting. The island resort encompasses a two-mile portion of private, pristine beaches on the northern end of Palm Island. Guests travel to the island via car ferry and park their car in our island parking area. Cars are not allowed in the resort. Transportation is provided by our bell staff and golf carts are also available for rent for registered guests.

We have 5 heated pools, plus hot tub and gas BBQ grills at each pool area. There are 11 hard tennis courts available for play at no charge. Our recreation center, Coconuts, offers a variety of rentals to include golf carts, bicycles, kayaks and beach umbrellas. Our full service concierge can also arrange for everything from massages to fishing charters. Be sure to catch a Pirate Show with the resort’s own Red Beard the Pirate. Join a complimentary water aerobics class, nature walk or yoga on the beach when scheduled. Whether you wish to spend your time with us on the go or taking it slow, you’re sure to enjoy your visit where it’s Your Island, Your Time, and Your Memories.

Reviewer Comments:

Disappointed! Condo furniture was dirty. The refrigerator was not cooling (the maintenance man said it would take until the next day to start cooling....great! spoiled food). The toilet in the master would not flush (it usually took several tries) and the furniture had enough dust on it that showed it hadn't been cleaned in months, none of the pots or pans had lids, the dishwasher looked like it had caught on fire at some point and the patio furniture (esp. the chairs)were in terrible shape), each bathroom only had one face towel per bathroom (there were six women) and as usual there was no ice. We asked the bell boy if on his way back by he would drop off some ice. We gave him $10 for his trouble. A short while later someone from the office delivered a small plastic grocery bag half full of ice. Apparently the ice machine was broken. Hope the office personnel pocketed the $10!! The real sad part to this story is that we are booked in the exact same room for our next trip in about 4 weeks. Can't say I'm excited about staying in the same condo!On a side note, this unit was upgraded from a standard to a deluxe. We rented this unit twice this summer (July & August). The August rental we were charged standard plus the AAA discount (rented by Goff). When I call four days later to rent it again for July trip, I was charged the deluxe rate. After talking to the manager, it was agreed that I would pay standard but would not get the AAA discount. This unit (1224B) is NOT a deluxe unit. I think management should have another walk through and inspect this unit again....Hopefully before August 4th!

Wonderful trip. Great beach view from the villa. The villa where we stayed could use some upgrades but overall a great experience.

Reviewer Comments:

We love Palm island and have been coming for over 20 years off and on. 1224 unfortunately was not as nice as we had hoped for being considered above the basic level in pricing. The interior has mismatched very worn out furniture, TVs were not the best, there was no wifi in the condo, the kitchen was not well equipped and the dryer did not work (someone came to look at it but it was never followed up on) over all the condo really needs some improvement to be charged a higher price point in my opinion. We have stayed in other units at the same price that were much nicer. All that said we loved the view, location, pool, beach and everything outside of the unit. We had a great stay!!! We'll be back just in a different unit.

Reviewer Comments:

Very quite resort and expansive shell beach. Spacious 3 bedroom unit. Beware that one of bedrooms is an open loft above main level, but it has its own private balcony. For price paid, I would expect free refills on toilet paper rather than $1.99/roll at the only kiosk on the property. There is no attempt at recycling any garbage--unusual in this day and age. Request to repair leaky under-the-sink garbage disposal did not happen. Lounge chairs available for use on the beach have to be carried by the customer to the beach and returned--should be a hired hand on site to do this job. Our pool and hot tub, one of many spread out on the property was extremely clean. Plenty of tennis courts and many bikes available to rent. Go to grocery store on mainland before taking ferry to island. Stock up for entire stay. You are given 6 ferry punches--we only used one for 56 night stay. If you use them up, you will pay ferry $55 to get back on island. No cost to leave island for mainland. Rent the newer units. Ours was an older model and cabinetry was worn and furniture a bit aged but clean. Beds comfortable. All in all, a great place to relax.

Reviewer Comments:

It was an experience staying on an island. We had an older condo, but it was ok. I liked having the beach view, but we were next to a condo being renovated, so that was not the best view. I think the golf carts should be included in your condo rent, since vehicles are not permitted. I would definately go back. It was nice to be there with family/ wedding.
