St. James City house description
This is a wonderfully situated Ol' Key West style home. It's just 5 or 6 houses up the Paradise Canal to your private dock and fish cleaning station. Upon boating out of the Paradise Canal, you will be looking directly at Sanibel Island with Ft Myers beaches to the left through the Sanibel bridges. To the right will take you to Captiva Islands, Cayo Costa (state park island), and many smaller islands and keys. Don't miss Cabbage Key, home of 'cheese burger in paradise'. These waters hold truly world class fishing, including the Tarpon capitol of the world, Boca Grande Pass. You will see Dolphin almost every time you go out, starting in the canal. However, you don't have to go that far to fish. Try right off the dock. You are also situated in some of the best kayak and wade fishing in Florida.
Pine Island is a hold back from the Florida of old. It is solid relaxation. There are no high rises and crowded beaches on the island. Reaching Florida's finest, and secluded beaches is best by boat, so bring yours or rent one locally. Tie it up in your back yard.
Check out the local history. Pirates of all sorts and fame ran these waters. Many say there is still buried treasure on these islands. Did you know Ponce de Leon was shot in a skirmish with the Calusa Indians off Pine Island, and later died in Cuba from the arrow wound?

Paradise on Paradise Canal!
Paradise on Paradise Canal!
We really enjoyed our stay at this beautiful stilt home in St. James City, FL. It has a huge upper deck overlooking the canal; peaceful and secluded. Nice residential area, lots of streets for biking riding, long walks and close enough to walk to a few local restaurants. We brought our own boat, so it was nice to be able to moor the boat right in front of the house. It was also a great spot on the water, with only probably 3-4 minute ride down the canal and then out to the open waterway. Close to Sanibel, Fort Myers Beach and Lover's Key. St. James City is a great place to enjoy fishing, boating, watching the pelicans, osprey,eagles and manatees in the canal. Would definitely stay here again!

Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: We used to take family vacations to my grandparents home in Panama City some 55 years or so ago. The memories are still strong. My wife and I decided to look for a second home in Florida to enjoy the warmth and fishing when we retire. After about two years of looking at different areas, we drove through the Matlacha area to see Pine Island. That was that. Here we are.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Even though the island is so laid back, there are still many island style restaurants to go to by car or boat. There is a great community pool at island center to enjoy as well.
