Relaxation 101 is a gorgeous & spacious 3 bedroom, 3 full bath waterfront home w/private pool on Palm Island with unobstructed views overlooking beautiful Bocilla Lagoon.
Take our 2 minute Virtual Tour!
Our home is on a double lot that ensures your privacy and includes an enormous private resort style pool for your personal use... in fact the entire compound is for your private use for the duration of your stay. Additionally, if there are little ones in your party you will be pleased to know that the entire property, including the docks and pool area, is fenced-in for the safety and security of your loved ones...including the furry ones :-) Yes! Relaxation 101 is a pet friendly rental! One of the few on the island!
The house is very comfortable and spacious... 2500 s/f. The large open floor plan is perfect for entertaining and includes not only an enormous great room with vaulted ceilings and a beautiful coral stone fireplace at its center, but a fantastic family room and an over-sized kitchen open to it all.
A very unique feature of this home is that it is all on ground level, no stairs to climb! which is unusual on the island. Most homes are built 15 feet above sea level and have steep stairs which makes it somewhat cumbersome to schlep your luggage and groceries into the house, dine outside or just run into the kitchen for that Pina Colada refresher! At Relaxation 101 our ground level home makes dining al fresco a breeze! not to mention how much easier it is for those who find it difficult to navigate steep stairs.
The location of this home is one of the best on the Island, at the mouth of the Bocilla Lagoon, where the constant tidal flow makes for year round crystal clear water teeming with Snook, Trout , Redfish, Snapper & Grouper. Best fishing on the island right off your dock! There's even a fishlight at night that draws large amounts of snook right to you. You feel as if you can almost reach out and grab one!
Sit and have your coffee on the dock in the morning and watch fish jump, birds feed... you will even see dolphins swim by. I kid you not. Dolphins. In the wild. Swimming right off our dock. It's the coolest thing ever.
Our home offers a HUGE, private in-ground resort style swimming pool to add to the enjoyment of the entire family. And for those times that you want to head to the beach, we are literally steps away... it's just a 90 second walk right around the bend and we supply everything you need! From beach chairs, towels & umbrellas to coolers and games & toys for the kids, we make sure you are well equipped. We even provide a little red wagon to cart it all! All you have to do is bring the beer!
This house features 2 boat docks. There's only one bridge to open water with 12 foot clearance at high tide and a channel cut 5 feet from the dock. At "Manatee" speed, it's 4-5 minutes to open water and Lemon Bay. 15 Minutes to the Gulf.
Kayaks, canoes, motor boats, paddle boards, bikes and golf carts are available for rent on the island as well. And if you want to hire a captain to take you fishing or on a sunset cruise he/she can pick you up and drop you off right from your dock! No need to load the family into the car and schlep to the mainland! Ahhhhhhh... Relaxation!!! LOL ;-)
Have you vacationed on the island before? Palm Island is a barrier island, 7 miles long between Sarasota and Ft. Myers on Florida's Gulf Coast. Sugar sand beaches, beautiful harbors & lagoons and great fishing & shelling are accessed by a 4 minute car ferry or private boat ride. With unpaved sandy roads and a relaxed 'Old Florida' atmosphere, our beaches are some of the most pristine and quiet in all of coastal Florida. There are no high rises blocking your gulf views.
There's one restaurant on the island, Rum Bay, that serves lunch and dinner. The car ferry runs continually from 6:30am until 10:00pm Sunday through Thursday and until 11:00pm on Friday and 12:00 midnight on Saturday. You drive your car onto the ferry and directly to your vacation rental home. It's a very special place to vacation. Kayaks, paddle boards, canoes, motor boats bikes and golf carts are available for rent.
