Property description

On the waterfront in historic St. James City, your island retreat is located just minutes from the Gulf of Mexico. Enjoy the laid-back lifestyle while sipping your favorite beverage from the covered deck, drop your fishing line in the Monroe Canal to catch dinner, and sleep in comfort as the waves lap the 60 foot dockage outside your window. Whether you are looking for a stress-free getaway or unique visit to a coastal fishing village, this SW Florida home offers natural beauty and island-style relaxation.

Located at the southern end of Pine Island, a subtropical island with minimal traffic, St. James City, is considered a nature lover’s paradise. Here you can view panoramic sunrises and sunsets, swaying palm trees, and shoreline birds, such as pelicans, egrets, spoonbill, osprey, curlews, and blue herons.

Dock your boat in the back yard for ready access to the waters of Charlotte Harbor, Pine Island Sound, Matlacha Pass Aquatic Preserve and San Carlos Bay. Renown for great fishing, you are a cast away from impressive catches of snook, red fish, 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 & Moose), churches of all denominations, plus an 18-hole golf course.

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

Make plans to spend your carefree vacation at our island home away from the crowds. Appointed with bamboo floors, bead board paneling, and island décor, this home is fully furnished and equipped with central air and heat, full kitchen, color TV, VCR/DVD player, washer & dryer. Bedding, towels, and linens are provided. Just bring your toothbrush and fishing pole!
