A GREAT ESCAPE FROM REALITY. The guests that visit us on our private resort all say the same thing, “I feel like I’m a world away from life’s pressures.” Once they pull on the car ferry that brings them across the Intracoastal, island life begins. The resort is a car free zone with owners and guests driving a mixture of golf carts and bicycles or simply walking. Our private beaches stretch for two miles with the Gulf of Mexico as far as you can see. As Guest Service Manager, I pride myself on making every Palm Island experience an enjoyable one. Often I hear, if you come here once, you will come back forever. It’s a unique place away from the hustle and bustle of the world.
The focus is around family and creating memories that will last a lifetime. Our island pirate, Red Beard, who has been here for over twenty year performs a musical show, tells pirate stories and has activities for the children. It is wonderful to have generations of families that have seen Red Beard as a child, then bring their children back to see him. Many holidays are filled with family reunions that come back year after year to spend special time together.
The views are spectacular either on the beach or by the pool. Villas and homes are available for sale, and may be part of our income generating rental program. Our guests come to stay for a day, a week or a lifetime. The family atmosphere that is created in our resort continues to flow over to our employees. Many have worked with us for twenty and even thirty years.
Guests spend their days enjoying the simple pleasures of the island driving golf carts, kayaking or paddleboarding. Fishing along the shoreline or off the docks on the bay side of the resort is a common occurrence on our little piece of paradise. Our guests may enjoy a complimentary water taxi to our mainland restaurant Leverock’s Seafood Restaurant, providing an enjoyable experience on the water. Our Island restaurant, Rum Bay, offers a casual atmosphere with a varied menu, including their signature ribs with Swamp Sauce.
We pride ourselves on creating unique special memories that will last a lifetime. Come experience “Your island, Your time and Your memories.” – Suzanne McCarthy, Guest Service Manager
