About the property

Enjoy the peaceful life of old-time Florida in St. James City

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.

Spend your vacation in this modern and well-equipped vacation home.

Ideal Island Haven

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this home. The owners were especially considerate of guests needs. The entire home is nicely decorated and clean. We were there 4 months, and some minor maintenance issues did arise, but the owners took care of them very promptly. The boat lift has an roomy dock around it, making it easy to get in and out of our boat. The neighborhood is quiet and scenic. Fishing is great, right off the dock! Great area for bicycle riding too.

Lovely home on Canal

  • 5 of 5

Although hurricane Irma put a little hiccup in our stay we had a wonderful time in St. James City. The owners were very accomadating, fair and helpful through the whole hurricane process. This is a very clean and well kept home and the pool is lovely. The docking area is fabulous and has plenty of room for more than one boat. The beds are a little firm for my families taste but we faired just fine. The Waterfront restaurant, which has amazing seafood pot pie, was our favorite! We enjoyed biking, yard saling, thrifting, fishing, swimming, and munching all while relaxing on this sweet island. Can't wait until next year!
