Rainy month in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our fur kids spent almost a month in this lovely, comfortable home. Quiet but with plenty to do and see, We took full advantage of the pool and kayaks... saw dolphins, manatees and schools of fish swimming past the dock every morning. Our alarm clock was the pair of ospreys nesting in the coconut tree. We ate coconut pudding made with fresh coco from the palm in the yard and I loved cooking in the most fully equipped kitchen we've ever rented. We walked the beach collecting beautiful shells, throwing back starfish and live shells. The furry ones loved the fully screened porch and running up and down the stairs inside. We felt taken care of, from the rental agent to the pool man to the caretaker who came to do some minor repair work. Unfortunately, the weather was abysmal ; we are considering renting again for the same period next year; this time without El Nino!

Just Bring Flip Flops

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent the month of April in this comfortable home. It was four weeks of pure island bliss. Quiet, private, and well equipped with every need supplied, including an excellent golf cart. We fished, floated in the pool, grilled out, and used the backyard fire pit. Twice we spotted manatee from the dock. A turtle burrow was just outside the front door, and we even crossed paths with a bobcat in the parking area.

We wanted to book it again for the same month in 2016 but it was already reserved. Hopefully we'll have another opportunity to spend time again at Fish Tales and Flip Flops.

Located directly in between Sarasota and Ft. Myers on Southwest Florida's Gulf Coast, Palm Island is as close as you can get to Old Florida! Beautiful barrier island, that offers sandy beach paths and the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Take the car ferry over to decompress and escape the rush and routines! Golf carts are the preferred method of transportation! There is one restaurant on the island, as well as a place to get ice cream.
