Property description

Whether you are looking for a relaxing island getaway or unique retreat to a coastal fishing village, this South West Florida cottage in historic St. James City, Florida, guarantees rest, relaxation, romance, and recreation.

Located at the southern end of Pine Island, a subtropical island with minimal traffic, St. James City, a laid-back village, offers first-hand views of Gulfside sunsets, swaying palm trees, and shoreline birds, such as pelicans, egrets, spoonbill, osprey, curlews, and blue herons.

Considered a nature lover’s paradise, this locale is renown for great fishing. Just minutes away, reel in impressive catches of snook, redfish, trout, sheepshead, mangrove snapper, or tarpon. Full service marinas are nearby for kayak and boat rentals as well as off-shore charter fishing trips. Explore kayak trails, discover Calusa Indian ruins, or tour outer islands of Sanibel, Captiva, Cayo Costa, Useppa and Cabbage Key for great shelling.

Island offerings also include St. James Community Center activities (yoga to bridge), public library with Internet access, community heated swimming pool with water aerobics classes, bicycle paths, tennis courts, art galleries and boutiques, fraternity lodges (American Legion, Elks, VFW and Moose), churches of all denominations, and an 18-hole golf course.

Nearby waterfront restaurants offer a variety of food venues, many with nightly, free musical entertainment.
