Bokeelia house description

WE DON'T LIVE IN A SQUARE WORLD, WHY VACATION IN A SQUARE HOUSE?

Come and experience the unique feel of a round house designed and built by world renowned Deltec Home, Inc., of Asheville, NC. This 2 story home, built on pilings, comfortably sleeps 6 with 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths, washer/dryer and a queen sleeper sofa all located on the first floor. The second floor contains a fully equipped kitchen, dining room and a full bathroom. Also located on the 2nd floor is a 56' DLP TV with a state of the art surround sound system that will provide you with a theater quality experience. From the 2nd story deck you will enjoy beautiful sunsets and see for miles with views of Charlotte Harbour in the distance. A large secured storage area is provided below the home for your convenience. From the hardwood floors, flat screen TV's, granite countertops to the ceiling fans, you will find this home to have a classy yet very comfortable feel.

This Bokeelia home, located on 1.3 acres, is within walking distance to Four Winds Marina, where you can rent or dock a boat while you're here. You can also grab lunch or dinner at The Lazy Flamingo. A public boat ramp and fishing pier are less than a mile from the property. Bokeelia is a quiet, relaxed and tranquil spot which will remind you of what island life in Florida once was. The waters surrounding Bokeelia offer some of the best fishing in the country. You can stay in the back bays and fish for snook, redfish or snapper or head to the flats for trout and mackerel or try your hand at tarpon fishing in the famous Boca Grande Pass. For land lovers, the island offers fine and casual dining, golf, swimming, tennis, biking and shopping. If you happen to miss the big city, take a short 30 minute ride off the island and enjoy historical landmarks (The Edison Home), a family water park (SunSplash), catch a show at the Broadway Palm Dinner Theater or shop at one of several malls in Fort Myers.

We have bikes, tennis racquets, horseshoes, golf clubs and much more to help make your stay enjoyable. We also have a boat, canoes and a golf cart that are available for an additional fee. Please inquire when you call! Please note...NO pets are allowed!

                                        Our month stay in the Round House has been relaxing and very enjoyable. The neighborhood is friendly and the bike paths on the island are great for bicycling. The house was even better than described! Everything was clean and neat and the owners quickly resolved the ice maker problem. The sunsets from the top level are beautiful. Pine Island is a well kept secret!! Highly recommend this home to anyone who can handle the steps..which is great exercise.

                                        Recommended for: Romantic getaway, adventure seekers, families with young children, sightseeing, families with teenagers.

                                        Owner response: Thanks Lesley....glad you enjoyed this part of Florida. Sorry for the minor glitch with the ice machine but I'm glad it was a quick fix! Thanks for taking time to be there and let him in:) Hope you had a safe trip back home.

                                        Our stay at The Round House was exactly what we were looking for. The house was very clean and very well taken care of. We enjoyed the view while relaxing out on the upper deck, we loved having the door walls open which gives a great breeze through the house. Everything was explained very well including how to use the TV. The kitchen is stocked with everything you could possible need. Beds were very comfortable. We did use the golf cart one day to go exploring which was fun. The best part was being so close to Four Winds Marina where we rented a boat! It is only a short walk but with having a full cooler (which they have a couple available to use) and some bags it was nice to have the golf cart to run over to the marina. We took the boat over to Cayo Costa state park where we had a beautiful beach to ourselves! We did forget a phone charger which Irene emailed us about before we even got back home and offered to mail it back to us, which she did. Also the security deposit was refunded very quickly. Highly recommend for a very laid back relaxing getaway. Thanks Irene!

                                        The Round House was absolutely great! The property listing was very accurate even to the small details, for instance, the grill & bikes availability. The location was on the north end of the island in a quiet neighborhood. The sunsets were lovely from the upper deck. The property was well maintained both inside & outside. Irene, one of owners, was most helpful in every way possible. Without reservation, I would highly recommend the Round House to friends & family. One of the highlights of the trip was a day trip to Cayo Costa via the Tropic Star ferry, a short distance from the Round House.

                                        The Round House looked lovely in the listing but it was even better in person. There are so many thoughtful touches (such as the Band-aids in the medicine cabinet, the bikes in the storage area, the Winn Dixie discount card on the key ring) that make this place feel like staying in a friend's home, not a rental. I can't say enough good things about the owners. We were told we were welcome to call with any questions... "even on Christmas Day." We didn't but we knew they meant it! We got our security deposit refund very promptly. The house was immaculate. They allow you to rent the golf cart and other items. They take pride in the place and it shows. This may sound silly but I was impressed that they made sure there was toilet paper in each bathroom before our arrival. How nice is that? They just ask that you replace it. We did and left extra for the next person. Taking out the kayak allowed us to see osprey chasing off an eagle. We rented the boat and were able to explore the canals and out into Charlotte Harbor. Dolphins came by the boat. It was breathtaking. This is not a "beachy" vacation spot. There is plenty of water but no sand! The island is quiet. The only "traffic" is first thing in the morning when people are going to work. The neighbors are friendly. You really can walk to the marina, the fishing pier, two restaurants, and enjoy the Florida sunshine. Visiting Matlacha is fun. We enjoyed driving down to Lovers Key State Park/beach south of Ft. Myers. The beach was not crowded yet there are concessions. Taking the ferry to Cayo Costa is worth doing. Riding the bikes or tooling around in the golf cart is a fun way to see the island more slowly. People really are laid back. It was difficult to leave knowing we were driving home to snow. I would recommend this to anyone that does not have a problem with stairs and who enjoys a more laid back pace. I can't wait to return to Pine Island!

                                        Thank you Irene & Van, your home is wonderful, warm and inviting. There is plenty of room to spread out and enjoy spending time with the family. The house was so clean and well keep, had plenty of games, books and etc... to do when you are not out boating or fishing.

                                        Irene was so sweet and helpful, and the house was perfect. It's spotless and has everything you could need (we really enjoyed the grill and the big flat screen tv). We had a fab time! Taxis from the Fort Myers airport are a bit pricey ($80), so i recommend renting a car.

                                        Recommended for: Age 55+, girls getaway, pet owners, romantic getaway, adventure seekers, families with young children, sightseeing, families with teenagers.

                                      About the owner: This home is owned by the Davis/Connelly family. We try to use it as much as possible when other folks aren't! We enjoy crusing the island on our bikes or golf cart and love to fish in Charlotte Harbor. We live in Fort Myers which makes this a perfect 'getaway'...close to home but on Island Time! Be sure to check us out on Facebook too!

                                      Why the Owner Chose Bokeelia:
                                      We love the laid back atmosphere of the island and of course the great fishing! We wanted a home that would stand out and get noticed.

                                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                                      Our favorite thing to do is go out in the boat and fish. We usually ALWAYS catch something and it is fun not knowing what is on your line until you pull it in. We of course, love to catch something we can eat...trout, redfish and snapper.
