Welcome to the most unique island in Florida!

Palm Island a.k.a. Don Pedro Island, is a barrier island 7 miles long between Sarasota and Ft. Myers on the Gulf coast with sugar-sand beaches, beautiful harbors and lagoons, great fishing and shelling only accessible by a short 10 minute car ferry or private boat. Our beaches are some of the most pristine and quiet in all of coastal Florida. There are no high rises blocking your Gulf views, unpaved sandy roads, and a relaxed "Old Florida" atmosphere. There is one restaurant called the Rum Bay that serves lunch and dinner. The car ferry runs continually from 6:30 am until 10:00 pm from Sunday through Thursday and until 11:00 pm Friday and 12:00 midnight Saturday. You drive your car onto the ferry and then directly to your vacation rental home. It's a very special place to vacation. We recommend renting a golf cart to explore the island during your visit. Kayaks and paddleboards are also available to rent on the island.

Dear Guest In this unprecedented time, we are taking every precaution possible to make your stay as safe as possible. the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), have done an excellent job of developing cleaning protocols for vacation rentals and we have adopted those protocols.
High-touch surfaces: All high-touch surfaces are cleaned and disinfected after each stay. Examples of High-touch surfaces include: tables, hard backed chairs, hand rails, doorknobs, light switches, remotes, wardrobe and cabinet handles, desks, toilets, sinks, bedside tables and kitchen and bathroom surfaces. These surfaces are cleaned with hot soap and water and then followed by disinfection with a quaternary cleaner to eliminate germs and viruses.
Low-touch surfaces: Primarily hard surface flooring: Cleaned by mopping with hot water and detergent.
Towels, linens and laundry: Washed using the hottest setting and then dried using the highest heat setting.
In each home we are providing a few tools to help you remain safe
