ABOUT THE ISLAND:
Palm Island is one of the last best kept secrets on the Gulf of Mexico. It is only accessible by boat, with one to two ferry’s running generous hours daily for both cars and pedestrians. Check out the ferry details at: . Palm Island is near Englewood, Florida and just north of Boca Grande. Fly into Sarasota, Fort Myers, Punta Gorda or Tampa. The island is seven miles long with plenty of clean sandy beaches and great shelling and shark teeth and the Don Pedro Nature Preserve.
Many years ago, there were three different islands...Knight Island to the north (known as Palm Island), Don Pedro Island in the middle and Little Gasparilla to the south. Years ago, the passes between each one closed up and they became one island, sharing the 7 mile beach. Don Pedro and Palm Island are often referred to interchangeably.
Life on the island is exactly what one dreams about when they think of island life—relaxed, laid back, quiet, subdued, and yet just a quick hop on the ferry to enter the “real world.” There are only about 200 homes on the island—no high rises, causeways, busy roads, street lights, etc. The air is clean; there are few cars, no hustle and bustle from busy roads. Routinely you will hear the buzz of a golf cart, or the crunch of shells beneath bicycle tires. That’s how most people get around the island. All of this is what makes the island extra special, very safe and calm.
The beach is just a few minutes away, whether on foot, bike or golf cart, with rental available on the island. The seven mile long beach is the ultimate for sunrises, sunsets and an abundance of wildlife and shelling. There is one island restaurant and a small store to purchase minimal supplies and fresh fish and meat. Rent kayaks, boats, bicycles, or charter a fishing trip. Enjoy many restaurants, golf courses, and shopping on the mainland. Don’t be surprised to see manatees, tortoise, exotic birds, dolphins and any number of fish on your adventure. You will not forget your stay at Luna Dunes and making island memories! Come experience our little secret.
We had a great time at Palm Island - Luna Dunes. The weather was perfect and it was very relaxing for our family. The house was very clean when we arrived as was expected per the pictures. The pool was a hit with the kids as well as the private road in front of the house they could ride their bikes on and go exploring. I enjoyed the private boat dock with direct access to the Inter-Coastal. The beach chairs were a huge hit for the adults! There were plenty of kitchen utensils and so forth for preparing meals. The grill worked well and we used it almost every night. All in all, we had a great time and the house was very nice and accommodating for our trip.
We absolutely love this home ! After a long day of travel to get here, its so refreshing to open the door and everything be perfect, the house is so clean the air conditioning is on for our comfort and the pool is clean and the perfect temperature .Property managers Suzie and Stu are wonderful. The island is so quiet and peaceful , setting by the pool reading a book all you can hear is the the birds singing and fish jumping in the bay water, doesn't take long to forget that there's a crazy hectic world out there .The beach is so beautiful and the sunsets are spectacular ! We also have to mention Mr Hicks , hes the gentleman we rent our golf cart from, he always has our cart in the driveway fully charged and waiting for us, hes such a pleasant man ! Once again a perfect vacation ! See you next year ! ~
Luna Dunes is an excellent place to spend the winter for many reasons.
The house is open, clean, spacious and comfortable. The property is beautiful and well maintained. The pool is large, warm and well taken care of. The location is private with good fishing. It may be the only house on the island where you can see the sunrise from the dock in the morning and watch the sunset from the front porch at evening.
But the most impressive point is the property manager Suzie and her husband Stu. They did so many things to make us comfortable and feel at home on the island.
Our 2nd time at Luna Dunes and loved it as much as the first . Its the little things (but important) that make this home so special. Its VERY clean , the pool is clean, the towels are soft, the bed and pillows are comfortable, the master bedroom has a huge closet (with hangers)! The GAS grill is on the same level as the kitchen (no running up and down the stairs to prepare a meal and no messing with charcoal) ,all the appliances work well, there's a bathroom on the ground level (no going through the house with wet bathing suits or sand all over from the pool. dock or beach) , pool floats , pool toys ,beach towels and beach chairs are all provided. The property managers are there to help with whatever you need , before you even hang up the phone ! Its just all around perfect. See you soon !!!
This place beats Disney! Our kids ages, 15,13, 11,and 8 loved this place. This was the most relaxing vacation we have had as a family. We loved this house and want to come back for sure. The pool was great for the kids on windy beach days. The Gulf was so fun and not crowded. The manger Suzie made our stay even more special. She was so helpful for anything we needed. Thanks for sharing your little bit of heaven with us!
