About Pine Island: Pine Island is the largest island (18 miles long, 2 miles wide with five unique communities) off Florida’s Southwestern Gulf coast. We're just 15 minutes from Cape Coral and 30 minutes from Fort Myers, but our secluded, small town atmosphere is a world away! Pine Island has an abundance of dolphin, manatee, an incredible variety of bird and wildlife, and of course: FISH, FISH, FISH! The South Pine Island area has been rated by Field and Stream magazine as one of the top 25 fishing locations in the country! Tarpon, Grouper, Sea Trout, Snook, Flounder,Snapper, Redfish and Triple Tail are a few of the popular game fish that are known world wide as some of the best fighters and dinner entrees. There is nothing like a fresh caught fish prepared for dinner after a great day of fishing! A great location for young kids to fish as well - with almost every cast producing something on the hook. Pine Island has a paved bike path running the length of the island, an 18 hole golf course, public tennis courts, and numerous art galleries in Matlacha. Home to many artists, authors, song writers and poets, Pine Island is also known as “Florida’s Creative Coast”. Enjoy shopping in our fine art galleries and specialty shops. Surrounded by mangroves, three aquatic preserves, acres of palm, tropical plant and fruit groves; we have escaped the cement and skyscraper development so predominant on other Florida islands. Along with being on one of the finest fishing locations in Florida, Pine Island is a haven for birdwatchers and nature lovers. Hiking trails, kayak and canoe waterways, and ancient Indian shell mounds will add to your outdoor adventures.
Dining on Pine Island draws many people to the island just to enjoy the great food and fun atmosphere of the local eateries! Whether it's a heaping cup of Seafood Chowder at Captain Con's, Pig Wings at the Ragged Ass Saloon or the infamous Pineapple Upside Down dessert at Woody's, you will leave the island anticipating how long it will be until you return.

About the owner: What can I say about us? We are very family oriented, love to be on the water, and are strong in our Christian faith! We love, love, love the time we spend on the island each year. Having vacationed on Pine Island for the last 13 years, we finally decided to purchase this home from my Uncle to plan for our retirement here.
Why the Owner Chose St. James City: We purchased this property from my Uncle who has owned it from when it was built. Purchasing the house was a way to keep family treasures in the family and gave us the opportunity to share the house with others. We feel the house is a blessing to us and thus pray that it will be a blessing to those who rent it as well.
The Unique Benefits at this House: We love the inviting nature of this house. From the sliding door walls - the doors store against the outside wall - thus there is no door blocking the views to the pool and canal, to the great layout of the house. One can sit on the seawall, enjoying a cup of coffee and watch the manatee swim past with their young, swimming out into the bay and back again throughout the day, we never get tired of watching them swim by.
When out boating, the dolphins swim in our wake providing a fantastic show for any age. A thrill we repeat on a daily basis. The fishing is fantastic! The eagles on the island are intriguing! With numerous nests nearby, you can walk, bike or drive to see them in their nests at any time of the day.
