Community: Perks of a Courtyard Home

The newest edition to Palm Island Plantation, our Courtyard homes offer the perfect balance of exclusivity and community. These homes, nestled on the eastern edge of the Palm Island property, offer a slightly different alternative to our Estate or Carriage homes. In the Courtyard development, residents will enjoy a maintenance-free lifestyle that capitalizes on the community in the following respects.

Your Home

The Courtyard homes consist of three bedrooms, three full baths, a two car garage, and a private, landscaped interior courtyard – its defining feature. These elements and the location of the complex ensure that your privacy is not interrupted. Residents can build the life they’ve always dreamed of within their home, without fear of disruption. Whether it’s peaceful alone time or quality time shared with family and friends, a Courtyard home offers you option to do whatever you please.


As mentioned above, the feature that sets the Courtyard homes apart is the private courtyard that accompanies each home. This is a coveted greenspace, landscaped to not only accommodate a life of luxury, but also to include native plants, flowers, and shrubs. We understand that for many, the perfect lifestyle will include the opportunity to spend time in and embrace the community of nature. We’ve cultivated these courtyards to allow this sort of getaway to be found right there on your property. You’re able to take a dip in your private pool and soak up the sunshine in a space encased in an environment that lends itself to the natural Florida landscape; a true escape.

Palm Island

A premier, people-oriented community is also included in your lifestyle package at Palm Island Plantation. Should you crave a more social experience, Palm Island offers everything from a state-of-the-art fitness club and community center to a tropical beach club complete with a heated pool & spa and poolside bar.

Say Yes to Fitness

Let’s be honest, it’s a commitment you make to yourself every January. Many people set goals to live a healthier lifestyle. Whether that means tackling a diet plan or implementing a fitness regime, many (maybe even yourself) choose to focus on themselves and really commit to their health and fitness. While there are many factors that often go into why New Year’s resolutions like these can sometimes fail, Palm Island Plantation’s amenities are here to help you make 2020 your year.

We’re not just here to cater to the luxurious lifestyle that comes with living in Vero Beach, Florida. We take it one step further. This is a community that is customized to fit the needs of our residents. Our private beachside cabanas, elegant oceanfront beach club, and all of our other offerings, are designed to make your life one of luxury. This includes our state-of-the-art fitness club at the Palm Island Community Center. Popular among our residents, this facility has everything you need to succeed when working toward your fitness goals.

When it comes to fitness, many quit due to a lack of variety in their fitness routine – they get bored, for lack of a better term. That’s not an excuse for members at Palm Island. A variety of machines, free weights, and equipment will keep your fitness routine fresh. Need a change of scenery? The community center also offers a second heated pool great for switching up your aerobics routine. And, if you find that you’ve pushed things a little too far, we offer a full-service spa that will help you get back on your feet.

So what are you waiting for? Join a community of like-minded individuals that are investing in themselves as residents of Palm Island Planation. Call our main office today to speak with a representative at 772.234.6500.

Before Heading South

Many of the residents at Palm Island Plantation settle into the community here for the winter months, soaking in every second of the year-round near-perfect weather that Vero Beach, Florida has to offer. But before you jet off to the Florida coast, be sure to wrap up things at home. Here are some tips for winterizing your summer home.

  1. Clear the Gutters – Whether you’re in a region that deals with heavy snowfall or not, it’s important to clear your gutters of all leaves and debris always, but especially before the temperature drops. Your gutters already take a hit just with the fluctuation in temperature. When you add in the presence of leaves, twigs, and anything else that may collect there, it’s just added pressure. Clear it out.
  2. Follow-up on the Furnace Filter – Whether you’ll be keeping the house at 60 degrees or a toasty 72, inspect your furnace filter and replace if necessary. Better yet, ensure that your complete heating system, ductwork and all, is functioning correctly.
  3. Trim the Trees – Before you cut your Christmas tree, be sure to show your landscaping some love. Remove any precariously hanging branches and prune back bushes and shrubs as they settle in to hibernate for the winter.
  4. Insulation – Drafty windows are not only annoying but can wreak havoc on a heating bill. Be sure all windows and doors are shut and locked tightly. Added insulation along these frames can also be beneficial as well. Be sure all exposed piping is wrapped and sealed to avoid rupturing.
  5. Clean-up Crew – there’s nothing quite like coming home to a spotless house. Especially if your home will be completely vacant over the winter months, be sure it is spotless before heading South. Perhaps schedule another cleaning a week prior to your return to freshen things up and have everything looking perfect for your arrival.
