Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Palm Island - HAVANA HILTON

The beach is your backyard here with 100 linear ft. of private beach

Gracious beachfront home on Palm Island. 3 bedrooms /3.5 baths – sleeps 8 with elevator. You will enjoy 100 linear ft. of private beach and a deep water dock connected to property just across the street for fishing or docking your boat/jetski. Ocean views are from every room in the house. There is a large raised deck under the house. There is a 60 ft. deck on back of house overlooking the ocean and a private screened deck off the master suite. The house lends itself to complete relaxation. There is a great gourmet kitchen for family meals including a bar with both wine and beverage refrigerators. It is all about relaxation here. The beach is just steps out the back door. With a great outdoor shower when you get back from a day on the beach. You will find no highrises on this beach, just miles of beautiful sand and clean water. This is old Florida natural at it’s best the shelling, shore birds and great fishing. It is common to see manatees and dolphins while sitting on the porches. This island is equally distanced between the Sarasota and Ft. Myers airports. It is accessible by boat or car ferry. This is a fisherman's paradise and anyone's ultimate relaxation holiday getaway.

About Melanie Kravecas

It only took one vacation trip to the island to know we really wanted to own a piece of paradise. We love the island and the slower pace. Someday we hope to spend most of our time here.

Melanie Kravecas purchased this house in 2007

The home was fantastic and the views were stunning!

  • 4 of 5

My family spent 7 full days of swimming, kayaking, fishing, bike riding, sight seeing, reading, searching for shells and turtles at this wonderful home. We highly recommend at least a week long stay at minimal to do as much or as little as you wish.

Beautiful house and location. Saw Dolphins, birds other fish and a manatee swam 2 ft away from me as he was heading up the beach line. Melanie thought of everything anyone would ever need for a beach vacation, just loved this vacation home, beautiful panoramic views of the gulf coast and the house is beautifully decorated. Thank you for a wonderful stay! Carol Eagle

Amazing home

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect! The location is breathtaking, the decor is impeccable and the home itself is spotless! Everything was thoughtfully prepared for us before we arrived and the owner was so helpful and lovely. The AC went out for only an hour before the on site manager and repairman showed up and had it fixed within 45 minutes. Even they were great!

You just cannot believe how wonderful this vacation was! Don't hesitate for a minute!

Relaxing and Peaceful Week

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year visiting Palm Island and staying at this beautiful beachfront home. This is a very comfortable and peaceful home. Having a beautiful view of the ocean 24/7 is the best part. We take along our parents who are in their 80's, so having the elevator is so helpful. Thank you for sharing your beautiful beach home. Look forward to coming back.

5 Star Experience!!

  • 5 of 5

I really didn't want to write this review because I didn't want anyone else to know about our fantastic island find! This beautiful beach house located on Palm Island was everything it was supposed to be and more. The perfect layout of the house, the awesome chefs kitchen, the convenience of the elevator, the ocean and sunset views, the perfectly located porches and perfectly located beach front all made for a great family vacation. The owner was well organized and made signing up and staying at the house a very easy transition. I definitely would recommend this delightful and amazing spot to anyone looking for a relaxing and comfortable place to vacation.
