Overview

About the property

Beachview Duplex With Pool, Dock, And Hot Tub. Seconds From The Sand Or Fishing,

The Blue Heron on Palm Island has a spectacular view of the Gulf of Mexico and is just steps from the sand. THE HOUSE IS A DUPLEX, BUT IT IS RENTED AS ONE HOME---YOU RENT BOTH SIDES OF THE DUPLEX.

We have just completed an EXTENSIVE REMODEL both in and outside of the home. We have added granite countertops, tiling, hardwood floors, pebbling in the pool and hot tub, new windows, roof, etc. New pictures to come soon.

Amenities include: pool, hot tub, lounge area, grill, 3 bedrooms, two sleeper sofas and two full kitchens.

Recently renovated with large windows showcase the view of the Gulf of Mexico. The home is a duplex with two entrances; perfect for extended family or teens who wish for privacy. Most visitors spend the day on the beach or choose to boat the Gulf of Mexico. Our rear dock has no bridges to the intracoastal or Gulf of Mexico.

Palm island is a bridge-less barrier island with no bridges to incumber boating access to the Gulf of Mexico. The island abuts Don Pedro State Park, which allows additional access to wildlife, flora, and fauna. We are a golf cart community, but allow access for vehicles via ferry. A round trip ferry pass is included in the rental, additional passes can be bought at owner's cost.

Our manager lives on island and is available 24/7 for questions or a helping hand. We have a minimum 5 night stay.

Why Barbara Walsh chose Palm Island

We are so close to the beach and have a beautiful view.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved the fact that the island was peaceful and calm. We are used to the beaches up North and appreciated the white sand.

Spacious, updated accomodation. Boat Dock on canal for fishing and across a quiet street from Gulf,

  • 4 of 5

We loved the pool and hot tub. The warm outside shower was great for rinsing off after the beach. Plenty of beach towels and chairs. Enjoyed the grill area and patios, would like a bon fire in the pit in cooler weather. We had everything we needed for cooking in. The common spaces outside are shared with other units, but no one else was there. The golf cart was great for looking around the island, and we all went to the resort restaurant one night. 6 adults. Great food at reasonable prices! There is an ice cream shop there too open until 6 pm. Bring games as after dark you will be relaxing in the unit. There is cable TV also and wifi.The island has charming book stands to grab a used book. Bring plenty of food and snacks. It will cost you $55 to venture back on the island if you have to leave in your vehicle for supplies. It is $8 for a passenger, no vehicle. I have to say we did feel a little trapped, but that is coming from city folks who are used to an abundance of restaurants and stores near by. You have the one only on Pine Island and no stores at all. It is a good idea to slow down and experience island life once and awhile. Seemed rather crazy to pay that much to ferry a vehicle 100 yds or so, thinking they really need a bridge!

The sunsets were remarkable! We enjoyed collecting sharks’ teeth and shells just after high tide.

The unit is 3 bedrooms, 1 bedroom is across the patio with a kitchen and bath. Sleeper sofa.

The main part of unit is very spacious living room and dining area, kitchen, 2 sleeper sofas in main area, a double bedroom and bedroom with 2 twins. Bath and 1/2 bath. All nicely done, modern and comfortable.

Outdoors could use some TLC. Overgrown with rotten boards here and there. Landscaping needs help. It was quite enjoyable, however.

Spring Break 2018

The pool and hot tub were in excellent condition. The place was recently updated and was perfect for our needs. Very clean and spacious. Proximity to beach and resort were great for access and movement throughout the day.

Awesome! A week in heaven!

  • 5 of 5

The Blue Heron was delightful! Great location. Quiet. Lovely pool area. The golf cart was a bonus and we enjoyed driving down to the resort for dinner. The beach is gorgeous and you can walk for miles. The ferry fee was a surprise but we really appreciated the complimentary pass for our first trip across. If you plan on making any day trips, you might want to park on the mainland side and use the golf cart to go back and forth to the ferry. Boca Grande was a fun day trip for the teens to get their shopping jitters out! Bob, the manager, was very helpful and responded promptly to our calls. Nice having the separate area with its own bed, bath and kitchen. We hope to return some day!
