Our winter guests just had to trim their vacation by a month, leaving all of April open.
Bring your boat, binoculars or bike to this four-bedroom, two-bath home on Pine Island for a week or a month of relaxation and rejuvenation without sacrificing your creature comforts.
Pine Island, an undeveloped gem of southwestern Florida, offers premier fishing, excellent bird-watching, calm kayaking and and easy biking on flat paved trails.
Located on a canal, the Sanctuary at Stabile is well-situated for the power boater, offering access to Sanibel, Captiva, Matlacha, and the Gulf of Mexico. Kayakers can ply the protected waters of the mangroves, sighting dolphins, rays, birds and other creatures along the Great Calusa Blueway.
But visitors may not need to leave the house for a quick look at a pileated woodpecker on a tree across the canal, a manatee off the dock or an osprey in flight.
The house sits opposite Saint James Creek Preserve, part of the Calusa Land Trust and home to St. Jude Nature Trail (a half-mile nature trail). It is also an easy walk to a bald eagle’s nest and a short distance from the Galt Nature Preserve.
The modern custom-built house, with tile floors and ceiling fans, offers cable TV in two rooms, and fast Wi-Fi throughout.
The great location in St. James City is close to the Ragged Ass Saloon, which features live music; Woody's, with food on the water; and island shopping at the Olde Florida Outpost.
The house has a dock with a 10k lift , an additional davit and a fish cleaning station. The pool has a saltwater system and temperature-controlled solar heating.
Guests have use of two bikes.
Small dogs will be considered.
