About Mari Franco
I am an elementary school teacher and a Grandmother whose dream has always been to own a beach home. I have been blessed with realizing my dream and now I would like to share it with you. My home is immaculate, comfortable, and available to all who search for a memorable vacation.
Mari Franco purchased this House in 2001
Why Mari Franco chose Palm Island
I first visited Don Pedro island twenty years ago and immediately fell in love with the place. I live just ten miles from South Beach in Miami and still I prefer to drive 3 hours to enjoy the peace and beauty of Don Pedro island. Every time I drive my car onto the ferry, I feel as though I am vacationing on an exotic island.
What makes this House unique
8 miles of paradise (no exaggeration). There are not many beaches left in the United States where on any given day you could be on the beach and not see another person for hours. Swim, fish, snorkel, shell, or just simply read your favorite book. The five minute ferry ride transports your vehicle and passengers and it is what makes the island pristine and exclusive. Once you drive off the ferry, simply park your car under the home and relax. Put on your sandals and walk, bike, or ride a golf cart to the beach.
Check-in: 4:00 pm

Don Pedro Island
This is a nice home with a lot of space and everything you need for a family vacation. Spacious and comfortable. The island is quiet and peaceful. The beach is amazing with gorgeous sunsets. Overall experience was good and would return.
Perfect for some.
House is terrific. Super easy to get on island. Plenty of restrautants close. We have stayed on southern end of the island where you can't drive your car to house. It is so much better on Don Pedro. The only negative for us was no dock. Worked out fine but unfortunately our next trip will be in a house with a dock.
Thank you for your review Bill. We are happy to hear that you and your family enjoyed your stay.
Warm , wonderful quiet.
The Sandcastle was just the spot we needed for rest and relation. Veranda was the go to spot for the heat of the day, while my girls could hang out at the beach, come in for pizza and snacks. Easy communication with the owner when it came to Q and A before our stay and while there. Good beds and everything was well kept, which is so nice - then you can simply enjoy vacation. Thank you.
Thank you Karin we love that you and your family enjoyed your stay.
Really enjoyed our stay here. The house is very nice, and the beach was quiet and relaxing !
Thank you! We hope yo have you back next time.
Palm Island was a wonderful getaway and Mari's house was perfect for us! Beach was nearly deserted and full of beautiful shells, sand dollars and shark teeth. Mari's house had everything we needed for a very comfortable stay. If you're really looking to "get away from it all", this is the place!
Thanks Margaret. We would love to host you in our home once again in the future.
Our escape from the harsh Jan & Feb weather in Ohio!!
Cushions all need updating. Steps need & deck need some repairs. Beds comfortable. Lg table is awesome! We wanted to display the flag but the holder was broken. Overall tho we were pleased with your house. Loved the beach, restaurant, ice cream, shelling.. The outdoor shower was really handy but could use some updating. We ‘inherited’ some food items (non-perishables) & left some for the next renter. There were small tears & separations in the lanai screens that were present when we arrived. We stayed Jan & Feb. Thank you! 😎�
George thank you for your review. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay, and have been making necessary updates. We look forward to having you again next year for an even longer stay.
The beauty of vacationing on Don Pedro Island is that there is no real itinerary. Enjoy eight miles of pristine sandy beaches where you can spend hours swimming, fishing, or just reading your favorite book. The adventurer in you may want to hike or kayak to the award winning Don Pedro State park where you could bird watch, picnic, and hike through the nature trail. If you want to relax and have a memorable vacation, come to Don Pedro Island and witness the most beautiful sunsets. Kayaks and Bikes are available for rent on the island.
