About Cheryl Lonergan
'Sundowner' is our dream come true! As a licensed builder in the State of Florida, we built our beach home ourselves so that the highest standards of building and design were used. We vacation on the island with grandchildren and friends and spend many weekends there. We hope you will enjoy our home as much as we do.
Cheryl Lonergan purchased this Bungalow in 2004
Why Cheryl Lonergan chose Placida
We chose to build on the island several years ago. We have been vacationing on Palm Island/Don Pedro Island for more than 12 yrs and decided to make our dream a reality. Don Pedro island is a family atmosphere and a place that we feel at home. We have made years of wonderful family memories on Don Pedro Island. Our grandchildren grew up enjoying the island experiences and are always eager to return.
What makes this Bungalow unique
Private secluded home with cool colors; 23 windows for extra light and to enjoy the view of the private, sunny tropical, barrier island which is accessible by car ferry only. Eight miles of quiet pristine beaches for beach walking, collecting shells and sharks teeth.

Wonderful week away from it all.
We three had a most relaxing and rejuvenating week at Sundowner. Owners have thought of everything, and I do mean EVERYTHING to make this home so very special. Spent many happy hours poolside, when we weren't carting ourselves to the beach for some of the best shelling we've experienced on the Gulf Coast, anywhere! What a charming island, and a great backdrop for a true get away from it all holiday. We can't wait to return next year to repeat our beautiful experiences. (And located right next door to the fire station, made us feel particularly safe, and the eye candy there was pretty amazing, too :-) Watched osprey, cardinals, finches, many tortoises, bunnies, so much wildlife in such a relatively small area. Thank you so much for an exceptional vacation experience!
Had an awesome experience here. Don't want to leave.
Loved it. Great place
Thank you for the lovely review. So happy you enjoyed your stay. We hope you will return again for your vacation plans.
Wonderful Week at the Sundowner!
Our family completely enjoyed our week on Don Pedro Island. The home was very comfortable with all the amenities. Loved having the extra fridge since we came prepared with plenty of provisions so we didn't need to leave the island. The home was very clean and the beds were comfortable. The pool was a great refresher after a day at the beach.
I highly recommend renting a golf cart or possibly 2 depending on the size of your group. It made getting to the beach and touring around the island easy and fun. The beach was pristine and although we had some rough weather it was still very enjoyable. Shark's teeth, fossils, and shells were bountiful. Everyday was a new find!
Cheryl was a great host and even called to check on us when we a tropical storm had developed. :) We had a minor problem with the golf carts but that was very quickly and pleasantly resolved; a sign of a truly good host. We made some great memories this summer!
I have been searching for years for a vacation home that my family could enjoy year after year. We rented many nice homes but nothing had everything, for everyone. Just as I was ready to give-up, we found Sundowner. I am in love with this home and this island! Not one single complaint or suggestion - even from the 2 teenagers! Cheryl is extremely accommodating, easy to contact, and provides thorough directions/instructions/ideas. Everything you need is provided in the well stocked kitchen. I always travel with a few kitchen accessories that rentals never seem to stock. Not the case at Sundowner! Cheryl has made sure the kitchen contains everything needed for preparing meals. The additional refrigerator was great to hold drinks and ice. Beach chairs, umbrellas, and sand toys are stored neatly below the home. You will definitely want to spend as much time as possible at the beach. Amazing blue water, incredible shells, and no crowds. We chose to rent the golf cart and I highly recommend it! The beach is easily accessible from Sundowner but the golf cart made getting around fun and super easy. We would ride to Rum Bay for lunch and sometimes grab an after dinner ice cream at the resort. Having a pool just steps away is great! The kids would go for a swim while I made snacks or prepared dinner. Two patio tables with plenty of seating are near the pool. Sundowner is a little slice of heaven! We loved it so much, we will return again at least two more times in the next year! Thank you, Cheryl for sharing your home with us! We cannot wait to return again and again to make lifetime memories in this fabulous beach home!
Very nice place, comfortable and relaxing :)
We spent a week this year at the Sundowner and couldn't have asked for more. Our entire family swam in the pool, went to the beach, went kayaking or fishing each day! We found so many shells and sharks teeth as well. The fact that there are no stores or anything like that really helped with the peaceful setting. The owners are so sweet and accommodating! We loved it so much we will be back for an additional week next year.
