Creating Your Own (Social Distanced) Oasis

It’s no secret that life at Palm Island Plantation is already a relaxing retreat, but with time spent isolated and away from family and friends for the past several months, it makes things hard no matter what your surroundings! Even when things start to open back up, many summer activities and events are still effected during the pandemic. With increased time at home a reality for the foreseeable future, here are some helpful tips to keep your space fresh and relaxing to create your own social distanced oasis.

  • Let in light. Keep the blinds open and increase natural light. To increase the light and airy feel of darker rooms, hang a mirror to help reflect light.
  • Create a cozy, airy space. Sometimes, increased time at home can lead to more home projects! Have you been getting an itch to redecorate? Making a home cozy and airy can be as simple as a change of décor. Add in light fabrics with curtains and bedding that make a room feel bigger or add throw pillows or fresh flowers to add new details.
  • Make the most of your outdoor space. Whether it’s a poolside retreat or just a bistro table on the porch, it’s important to get fresh air! Take advantage of whatever outdoor space you have. Enjoy a morning coffee during the peaceful, quiet hours to start the day, or unwind before bed with a drink.
  • Take this time to experiment with new foods. Maybe you’re not ready to venture out to your favorite gourmet restaurant just yet, but in between takeout, experiment with new spices and flavors in the kitchen! Palm Island Plantation boasts some incredible kitchens, so make use of yours!
  • Enjoy activities. Escape through the pages of your favorite book. Enjoy your oasis at home and continue to use this time to slow down and enjoy life. Take a walk or head to the gym to stay active. Play an online game with friends or family or just take up a new hobby. Whatever it is, it’s important to keep the body and mind active.

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. Our residents often enjoy the socializing in the evening and community culture that comes with living at Palm Island Plantation.

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.
