Just Say No: Why snowbirds flock to Vero Beach

We’ve heard it since we were little and now we tell our kids to do the same: just say no. Say no to calling in sick and coming down with the chills. Say no to snow-covered roads and ice slick sidewalks. Say no to unfavorable driving conditions and getting caught in a snowstorm. Say no to getting snowed in and getting stuck. The one thing you can say yes to? Say yes to Palm Island.

Kiss all your snow-struck worries away and make the move to Palm Island Plantation where the temperature averages 88 degrees and the sun shines year-round. Toss aside the ice scraper and trade your snow boots for flips flops. In Vero Beach, FL, the warm weather never wanes and the activities are endless.

Entertain Your Way: Sharing your Palm Island Home

Owning a home at Palm Island Plantation is not only exciting but something to share. Many of our residents often graciously open their homes to friends and family to share with them the unique experience and community that is luxury living at Palm Island. That being said, we’ve put together a few tips to keep in mind when entertaining houseguests.

As many of our residents are not in Vero Beach with us full time, it’s important to be sure that your home is fully stocked with clean beach towels, fresh linens, and that your cleaning service has recently been through. Add a little extra hominess for your houseguests by having extra toiletries on hand, too. Think of when you travel. Isn’t it appreciated when things like shampoo and toothpaste are available to you? Think of doing the same for your guests.

Similarly along those lines, be sure to fuel up. Whether your kitchen is the most used room of your home or the least, have some plans as to what to do for meals. You don’t have to plan out all three meals for every day they’re there, but have a few ideas in mind (like breakfast out on your private lanai) to offer your guests. Keep in mind Palm Island has twelve private cabanas on the beach that would be perfect for a beachside picnic. Our poolside bar is also a great spot to relax and catch up with drinks in hand while soaking up the Florida sun as well. If you and your guests would like to venture into Vero Beach, our office would be happy to make a recommendation for you. Otherwise, you’re welcome to explore the award-winning, local cuisine at your leisure.

And finally, it’s most important to simply enjoy the life that is Palm Island Plantation. The atmosphere here is one that is unparalleled and one any houseguest would be happy to be a part of. Take them to our fitness club at the Palm Island Community Center, hit the beach along the Indian River Lagoon, or just hang out at home. Whatever you choose to do, sharing quality time with friends and family is what it’s all about. That’s truly a life of luxury at Palm Island Plantation.
