We are a waterfront Resort that has been in business since 1983. A mere hop from the mainland—though miles away measured by mindset—Palm Island Resort is Florida’s only true island resort. Neither bridge nor causeway ties this sliver of authentic Old Florida to the rest of the world. Guests arrive by a short, breezy ferry ride offering the perfect opportunity to take some deep, relaxing breaths and access their inner beachcomber. Palm Island Resort is a private community of 300 property owners to which approximately 85 have chosen to participate in the vacation rental program. Although each of our accommodations are individually decorated and/or remodeled by individual owners, Palm Island Resort provides the guest experience of a single entity centered around resort activities.
When the five senses come together in perfect harmony, a sixth sense is born as a magical feeling of completeness.
This is the story of Palm Island Resort, which has been created with an acute understanding of quality and value, while ensuring a sustainable environment for those that frequent Palm Island to nest, hatch and feed.
What you see… An Old Florida landscape truly representative of coastal Florida
What you hear… Whether it be the sounds of ocean waves or the call of shorebirds, the sounds of coastal Florida surround you.
What you smell… Ocean breezes, smoke from a beachside cookout, or the blossoms of wildflowers, the Barrier Islands are like nowhere else.
What you taste… Fresh seafood on the grill, sweet, delicious orange juice or the decadent luxury of key lime pie. Gathering around the dinner table is always special in coastal Florida.
What you feel… Quality construction utilizing our natural resources and assembled with pride form a wide selection of talented craftsmen. The pride and display of responsibility with the option to go green.
The Sixth Sense… When all the senses come together, you know you have enlivened your sense of appreciation. An appreciation for its people, its culture, its character and its values. An appreciation for being at home on one of Florida’s gulf coast barrier islands. We are part of a family of companies related to Palm Island Resort (PalmIsland.com) which is across the intracoastal waterway and features 2 miles of private beach on the Gulf of Mexico. Our clientele is a robust stock of flavors from all walks of life: Families, Fisherman, Boaters, Vacationers, Year Round Residents, Senior Residents, Seasonal Residents and Working Professionals.
