Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday townhome in Palm Island - Cruz Del Sur

2 bedrooms with 2.5 baths located directly on the Gulf of Mexico

DIRECTLY on the GULF of MEXICO, recently remodeled townhouse. Located on the BEACH with dockage, tennis court and a fantastic gulf front pool! Fabulous, expansive gulf views. There is a screened porch on the main level, and an upstairs balcony off of the master bedroom. All of the appliances are new, as well as brand new furniture, a new gourmet kitchen with a roomy snack bar. Fully equipped and ready for your enjoyment. Other new or like-new items include, flat screen televisions, ceiling fans, furniture, bikes, linens and towels, kitchen equipment, glassware, plates, silverware, etc. The list goes on and on! Just about everything is fresh or nearly new. Also includes cable television, free long distance in the US and Canada and wireless internet access. Please inquire for more details and specifics about this great gulf front vacation rental.

No crowds here, just miles of unspoiled, 100% natural Florida (the way it used to be!). World renowned shelling, fantastic sunsets, bird watching galore, kayaking, dolphins, gopher tortoise, and a lively lagoon where fish jump all day long. Don Pedro State park is a short walk down the beach. You’ll want to capture the Island’s charm by traveling via golf cart, we rarely use cars here. Golf cart rental is available which is almost new and in excellent condition.

Bring your boat or rent one for the ultimate in Florida lifestyle. Our community dock will accommodate a boat up to 20 feet. Like to fish? Fish right off the dock or try your luck surf fishing or book a charter with one of the local guides for a thrilling day of sport fishing or backwater challenges. Trout, Redfish, Snook, Tarpon and Grouper are just a few of the many species that call our waters home.

Don Pedro Island (Palm Island) is a barrier island and a stones throw from the mainland. You’ll arrive via a short car ferry ride that takes about three minutes. Our island has a terrific resort that offers a casual restaurant, ice cream/deli shop, sundries store and a pirate show for the kids. The island is almost all single family homes so you’ll quickly find it has a pristine 'non-commercial” family feel. There are no large high-rise resorts, beach bars or traffic and noise. If you’re looking for that place in the sun that you can actually hear the wind whistle through the palms - you’ve found your place.

Off island you’ll be close to restaurants, shops, golf courses and world famous Boca Grande as well as other attractions. As we like to say... civilization is close but not too close. Boca Grande offers exclusive shopping, dining and sightseeing. By boat you can reach Cayo Costa Island State Park and Cabbage Key where Jimmy Buffet was inspired to write 'Cheeseburger In Paradise.' Do it all, or do nothing at all, that’s the “island” lifestyle. It’s laid back, always casual (leave your tie at home) and Florida at its best.

Sleeps six comfortably. No smoking. Pets allowed with owner's permission, additional pet deposit and fee per pet applies. Spacious, open floor plan. Fully equipped kitchen. Nice screened porch that opens into the living room. Master bedroom with private bath and beachfront balcony. Don Pedro/Palm Island is an experience like no other. Come to our island and see why so many have fallen in love with this little 'slice' of paradise!

About Julie

We have enjoyed the island for many years, and we take exceptional care of our home. The gulf front views can't be beat and the home is very nicely furnished. It's a true paradise and one of the last places in Florida that has retained its casual charm and genuine "Old Florida" beach lifestyle.

Julie purchased this townhome in 2014

Why Julie chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

Our town home is part of a small Association. The entire layout has been nicely designed plus we have fully remolded our home so everything has been updated. There is a Gulf front community pool right next door which is not used very much because our Association is so small, sometimes you might even have the entire pool to yourself! We've been coming to the island for years so when the opportunity to purchase Cruz Del Sur presented itself, we jumped on it. It's a great home.

What makes this townhome unique

Don Pedro Island is truly one of Florida's last stands that has not been infiltrated with huge condos and hotels. The beach environment is very natural and gives you a real look into Florida's past. It's the perfect place for family time or a quiet getaway and the sunsets are simply spectacular.

Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

Visited for a week with our 2 daughters (8, 10). We love quiet beaches and nature and this was the perfect place for us. Private, with stunning views, and comfortable, clean, and lovely furniture. We used the kayaks every day. I loved paddling down to the end of Don Pedro State Park...pristine beaches, and dolphin swam within 10 yards of me. The outdoor shower and lower deck were a nice touch. I loved the view and zero gravity chairs on the upper deck. The pool is right next door and we had it to ourselves every time, but we mostly swam in the clear, calm gulf water. Finding sharks teeth was fun. We saw dolphin, manatees, sea turtle swimming by, gopher tortoise, cool coachwhip snake, beautiful dunes with native plants everywhere, manatees, and lots of shore birds. We loved watching the frigate birds...I'd never seen them before! Sea turtle nests are abundant...a dozen within 50 yards! The daily turtle patrol was nice to talk to, and let my daughters look at loggerhead eggs she was checking on. I love that it was pet friendly...we didn't bring our dog but neighbors did and I loved seeing them play on the beach (one family would leave dog poop on the beach and just cover it up...yuck, but others were great and respectful). Julie and Diane were great to communicate with and very informative info about the island and surrounding area. I had to switch weeks and they let me transfer my deposit to another rental seamlessly. We only left once midweek to go to the grocery store on the mainland, and didn't visit the resort. We had no desire to leave! I want to go back as soon as possible.

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the Palm Island condo for 1 week with my husband and two small boys (ages 4 and 1). We had the most fabulous, relaxing vacation. The condo was extremely clean and perfect for a family of 4. I love that there is a pool, since my boys enjoyed both the pool and the beach. The pool was a perfect temperature, too, it must be heated! We loved having the golf cart. Would visit the resort each day for something... the restaurant, ice cream, Pirate show and Pirate craft activities. Also, all of the neighbors were extremely nice and friendly! At the time we were the only young family there and I was worried we would be bothering people, but everyone seemed to love our boys!

Before the trip, I had a lot of questions, and was texting with Diane probably too much! I wanted to make sure I was prepared going to an island! Diane always answered immediately and was a great source of information! We rented a lot of baby stuff from Cribs-to-Go in Englewood at Diane's recommendation. Much cheaper and easier than checking it all on an airplane!

Would love to come again!!

Best Florida Spot

  • 5 of 5

We loved our three week stay and have already booked for 2017! The tranquility, friendliness of other renters and owners, and the throw back feel to a much slower time were all healing in so many ways. The owners Julie and Diane are helpful and available beyond any expectation via phone and email. Rene and Doreen are there for any small question or big concern. They do a superb job of having everything pristine and orderly for move in. We will be back yearly as long as we can find a rental. For those who need to be entertained this is not for you - nothing but beach walks, beautiful sunsets and quite times.

Warmth, Relaxation, Peacefulness.

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic place for relaxation, yet romance. This quiet beautiful place provides the perfect place to enjoy one's getaway. The house is more elegant than even pictures show, the abundance of extras makes this seem like a true home away from home. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.

The owners have done a fabulous job of updating this place. Their timely communication makes this such an easy transaction to complete. If you are looking for that one in a lifetime getaway this is it.

Excellent place to stay for a relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, teenage daughter and I stayed here for a week in early February. I was a little reticent about our daughter being "stuck" on the island, but we ALL had a fabulous time. We relaxed, walked a ton (6 miles a day!) and took two really nice bike rides.

The condo is beautiful, very well equipped and very comfortable. It had all the equipment we needed to cook good meals. My husband kept remarking on how well equipped it was! (-: We did not rent a golf-cart and didn't feel the want of it. The bike ride to Palm Island Resort for lunch was about 15 minutes.

One tip - if you want to cook your own fresh fish, the Palm Island Resort restaurant will sell it to you. Not cheap - but far easier than going over on the ferry to get it.

My only regret? That we didn't have our dog with us! Clearly a VERY dog-friendly place!

Owner's Response: Kristin, Thank you for staying at Cruz Del Sur. Yes being "stuck" on Palm Island is a great place to be. I am glad you enjoyed the quiet beach for long walks, and biking around the island. Please come back again and bring your dog next time. Diane

Unspoiled, uncrowded and unbelievable location. It's old Florida at its best. One of the best beaches in the world and certainly one of the best in Florida. World-class Boca Grande is very close and Englewood offers some quaint shopping and local restaurants. It's an old Florida beach town that has managed to stay connected to a slower pace and tropical living.
