About Penelope W.

I welcome you to my Florida Retreat. Its my pleasure to meet your acquaintance. I pride myself on being the best Aunt to my Nieces. As a Fl. & SC real estate broker I travel often and I myself have enjoyed many VRBO properties over the last 10 years. I have a keen awareness of the details necessary for a comfortable stay. I trust you will find some eclectic features in my retreat from interesting books to special glassware & perhaps a few spa products. Upon your arrival I do offer 'Welcome Baskets' of several different themes. 'Cabernet & Chocolate' ~ 'Nuts about Scotch' ~ 'Healthy Wealthy & Wise' Please inquire in order have upon your arrival & additional fee. I specialize in New Home sales in the area, luxury waterfront & investment properties. Please inquire about 'My Million Dollar Homes Tour.' or ' New Home Model Tour.' If you purchase a home with me I credit your stay back to you at the closing.

Penelope W. purchased this house in 1994

Why Penelope W. chose Florida Central Atlantic Coast

A rare find in this convenient of a location. My Retreat has privacy and two large vacant lots next door for games, parking an RV over nite. This home was passed down from my father & he kept it immaculate. Palm City has all the conveniences a traveler may need or want. Horse Back riding is just down the road & You Pick Farms for fresh produce. We are close to I95 to reach the Palm Beaches, Ft. Lauderdale or Miami. Or travel north to Orlando, Vero Beach or Daytona.

What makes this house unique

Kayak in the backyard or enjoy an evening of S'mores by the fire pit! The covered screened in lenai for having your morning coffee starts the day right! For my Foodie Guests - Clip a few fresh herbs from around the landscaping for your healthy stay. The Gas Grill is waiting for a divine meal.

Wellness Retreat Guest - book an in house massage or facial while here. Take walks under the pine trees..yes, Pine not Palm. And visit the Wellness Center for a good toning workout located 1mile away. Schedule a his and hers yoga session along the water early one morning! It's up to you! Let me know and I can help you coordinate it!

Read a book in my quiet little rose garden courtyard perhaps!

Ever play Lawn Checkers??? Now is your chance! Get out the popcorn maker and watch a movie!!! Check out some interesting books on the shelves.....have fun, & be sure to return!!!

Perfect Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted by he accommodations. The rooms were clean and well appointed. The kitchen was well equipped. It is located in a Palm City which is lovely. We used it mainly for meals and sleeping because our mission was to take our grandson to the opening week of MLB Mets Spring Training games so we didn't use the bikes or kayak, but for a family that wants to take advantage of those things, it is a nice perk. Penelope was great to work with and was available to help by phone in any way necessary. I would definitely recommend this home to others.

Exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

My teenaged son and I stayed at this Palm City location for 6 days to attend some MLB Spring Training games in Jupiter and Port St. Lucie in mid March. We arrived later in the evening than expected and the house was well lit and welcoming. The house was very clean, well equipped and the rooms were well sized. We immediately felt at home and comfortable!

There were many small touches, including a well appointed kitchen stocked with essentials (coffee, sugar etc.) and some surprises (like S'mores fixin's) which reflected the thoughtfulness and attention to detail of the owner, Penelope, evident throughout the house. I had requested a couple beach towels and there was 2 beach bags full of new towels and gear plus a couple of beach chairs (Wow).

We didn't use all of the amenities (kayak, bikes, boat lift, fire pit...) as we were out during the days at games or at Hutchinson Island beaches and just crashed in the evening, barbecuing and hanging out in the screened in lanai overlooking the waterway. The close by Publix made it very easy to stay well stocked.

The owner promptly responded to my initial inquiry and was attentive throughout our stay.

We recommend this property as a really clean and comfortable, non-pretentious home away from home.

A Tranquil Waterfront Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a quiet place to get away and were very satisfied with this choice. We found the property to appear as photographed and described on the web site. It was very comfortable and nicely appointed. It was a nice surprise to find a Publix and quite a few good restaurants just a mile away. We also enjoyed walking in the neighborhood. A notebook describing how to use TV and other appliances might have been helpful. However, when we called the owner, she was very accommodating. She said to call again with any questions. However, we did not find that to be necessary. This was our first experience with RBO and we would consider doing this again. All in all, it was a wonderful experience and we would certainly recommend this property.

Relaxing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in this home for 4 nights and really enjoyed it. The back porch is amazing and I could pretty well live there. We enjoyed having a fire (with smores!), relaxing by the water, and cooking in the well stocked kitchen.

When a last minute family emergency caused us to change our plans, the owner Penelope went above and beyond to accommodate the new dates. She was fantastic and very responsive. I highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a nice place in the Palm City/Stuart/Indiantown area!

Had everything!

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I stayed for 5 nights. We especially enjoyed having our coffee on the patio Sunday Morning as we watched the boats pass by headed out for the day of fun. It was romantic sitting by the fire. We chose a bottle of wine from Chile that taste delicious, it was featured as an option for our stay. How fun & unique to offer wine this way. We also chose to have the fridge stocked and were pleasantly surprised to have the essential staples (plus) there for us until we could get unpacked & to the store. Not ever have we had that option from other vacation rentals. This owner definitely thinks of & takes to heart how we may experience the details of our stay. The interior design was surprisingly uniquely elegant. We WILL RETURN NEXT YEAR.
