St. James City cottage description
Experience what old Florida was like. This adorable bright turquoise beach cottage is right on a canal, five minutes (idling) to Pine Island sound. The view from the back porch is straight down a beautiful canal lined with sailboats and coconut palms.
Fishing is excellent, even right from the dock. We have some fishing poles if you want to try it. The floors are tiled and the tiled, screened-in back porch has a ceiling fan. You can sit and sip Margaritas while you listen to the sounds of dolphin and manatees gliding past.
Pine Island is known for its music. Numerous local bands play everything from rock n roll to island rock to country. You can walk to the Waterfront restaurant in about 2 minutes and enjoy great seafood and lots of local atmosphere.
Many kayak routes are close by and the area is very popular with kayakers and nature lovers.

Owner response: Thanks so much. We appreciate your taking the time to let us know that your stay was enjoyable!
When you walk thru the front door and look out the back onto the canals, all tension and stress leaves you're body. I've never had a more relaxing time away from home. Beautifully kept , clean ,comfortable, and functional. You supply the food and drink, everything else is there. Owners were always available to help if needed. Just one small refusal ,Thom won't lend his boat out to renters. Unbelievable!! lol . Well you can't have it all. I'll be back in November, can't wait. JAY, Buffalo,NY.

My girlfriend and I spent a week here and it was great! Thom was easy to work with and everything was just the way he said it would be. The house is very clean and the location is by far the best on the island. Not to mention that the boat lift makes life easy! Thank you and we look forward to coming back.

Year Purchased: 2001
About the owner: We bought this house in 2001. It was built in 1958 and we basically gutted it and started from scratch. When we reached the bottom layer of paint it was turquoise so we decided to paint the 'new' house the same color. Everything was updated to current building codes. We added a dock and boat lift and had the seawall redone (2008).
Why the Owner Chose St. James City:
Kathy is a Florida native and Thom has been here most of his life. We love the water and really never dreamed that we would be able to have a house on the water. We get there every chance we can and plan to retire there in a few years so you should enjoy our rental while you can!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Even though it is close to the city of Cape Coral you feel that you are way out on an island. Our house is at the very tip of St. James City (southernmost). At night you hear the sounds of the water and really feel like you are on a deserted island. The fishing is fantastic. If you go out in the morning it is so easy to just come back in for lunch and a nap and go right back out on the boat. Our friends love to come with us for weekends of fishing, music, good times.
