Guestbook comments from the owner

This house and the location are amazing, right across the road from a private beach with lots of wildlife and and beautiful seashells to collect. Our kids loved the dock in back, where they could catch starfish, crabs, and guppies. The adults enjoyed the secluded downstairs patio with hot tub. The kitchen was well equipped and the screened in porch was a great place for meals and hanging out. The house is not huge, but plenty comfortable for our family group of 9 for Christmas vacation. the master suite is gorgeous, and the other bedrooms are also nice. Upstairs loft was enough space for a couple plus 3 kids. The island itself was a unique experience. So secluded and quiet with no car traffic. The golf cart was a cool way to explore. I would recommend this house for anyone looking for a mellow, relaxing getaway in a breathtaking environment.

Had an amazing time!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every minute spent in Palm Island. The view from the screened porch was breath taking. It was very peaceful and the beach was awesome. The accommodations were great-the house was clean, there were plenty of towels and the kitchen was equipped with everything you need. Chris was very helpful and provided detailed information prior to booking. We look forward to staying here again! :)

Best of Palm Island!!!

Great place to enjoy family and friends surrounded by beautiful beaches! Could not have asked for better accommodations. The owner was very easy to get a hold for questions. Our weather was perfect!

Quiet Family Get-Away

  • 2 of 5

There is positive and negative about this rental

On the positive side, it is in a great location-- great view of the beach, immediate access to a dock, spacious interior, washer dryer, kitchen as advertised. The owner consistently answered the phone to answer questions.

On the negative side, we have to report that there were a lot of disappointments. There was no manual as we have come to expect from rentals for this price -- the only written instructions were under a magnet on the refrigerator, purporting to instruct users on the TV, but these were out of date. The owner preferred giving oral instructions prior to entry, and of course there was no way to remember it all or to ask the correct questions. The golf card did not work; the spa (hot tub) did not work; we tried the AC one hot night but could not get it to work with its new high-tech thermostat -- fortunately it cooled outside so we did not call the owner about it. A large portion of the screen was missing on the screened-in porch. We were led to believe we could take fitness or other classes at the near-by resort on the island and rent their kayaks, but this is prohibited by the resort. One day we came back from an excursion and found the water shut off due to non-bill payment (which after some effort the owner did rectify). We also met a landscape person on the street who was looking for the owner so he could get a check. Eventually the golf cart was addressed; in the third week of our stay a technician came out to address the spa, but unfortunately we could not stay longer to see the result. All this leads to a bad impression and the notion that the owner, 2 1/2 hours away by car, simply cannot keep the property up -- a good rental property requires more love than this owner seems able to give it.

Perfect quiet family get away

  • 5 of 5

The location is really wonderful if you are looking for a quiet South Florida vacation.

There aren't many islands in South Florida like this one. Very few people. Quiet beaches. Great sunsets.

What makes this place unique is the access to the lagoon side, and the ocean side. Not many houses have both.

I stayed here with my family and my in-laws. We had children of all ages in the house, and everyone enjoyed all the activities, like kayaking, Paddleboarding (you can rent from nearby Cape Haze Marina), fishing off the dock in the back of the house, or the short walk to the beach. The golf cart can be pretty fun as well.

Owner was very responsive, and always immediately got back to me.

Great place to stay to get away form it all!

  • 5 of 5

This property is as described. Do not go thinking there are places to go and things to see. This is a place to relax!! We had a boat and really enjoyed the fishing and boating that was offered. The beach was loaded with shells and bring a glue gun and a little ingenuity -to make a variety of sea shell critters!There was always a breeze and the outside area was where we spent most of our time. The house was comfortable with great air conditioning. However, we could not figure out how to operate the TV. Also we could not figure out how to turn down the hot tub. But those were little issues. 10 adults stayed and slept comfortably ranging in age from 30-90 years. Loved the place. Landlord was easy to contact. The golf cart ran perfect.

This location offers the best of fishing and boating. There are 7 miles of beautiful white sandy beaches and shells for the most avid collector. All types of water activities are available. We regularly see dolphin and manatee from our dock and beach. The island can only be reached by ferry & therefore the beaches are very secluded!
