About Ania marti

Hello my name is Ania. I am the proud mother of three amazing boys and grandma to two sweet girls. My husband and I live in Miami and we travel to the island to enjoy the serenity of this captivating island and retreat from the business and noise of the city life. We love to fish, go to the beach and kayak.

Why Ania marti chose Saint James City

St. James City is located in Pine Island, Florida which is the largest island off Florida’s Gulf Coast. We fell in love with St. James City because it’s laid-back atmosphere and the people are very welcoming and hospitable. We love our waterfront property because it allows us to enjoy all the water activities we enjoy. The island has three aquatic preserves, and acres of palm, tropical plants and fruit groves. The waters of Pine Island provide not only some of the finest fishing in Florida, but are a haven for birdwatchers and nature lovers.

We enjoy our place during the months of June and July and we hope you enjoy your stay in this beautiful island paradise as much as we do. We’re only a phone call or email away so if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask!

What makes this house unique

Just a few minutes away and for only $3 ($2 for seniors and children) you can enjoy the Pine Island Community Pool. The pool is a 25 yards, six lane pool with a salt water system, slides and a diving board. It is also heated during the winter months. There is also a tennis court and nature walk trails nearby. Our guests with children can also enjoy the Ft. Myers Aquatic Center Pool which is heated in the winter and chilled in the summer to keep a comfortable temperature of 83 degrees. This pool offers a Kiddy Pool and Kiddie area with lots of slides and water fun and also has an adult sized Olympic pool. The Aquatic Center is only $2 for children and seniors and $4 for adults. Lastly, just 20 minutes away our more adventurous guests can visit the Sunspalsh water park Enjoy 14-acres of water slides, pools and fun at Southwest Florida’s largest waterpark. There is something to do for guests of all ages! Sunsplash water park is $15 for children and seniors and $17 for adults.

For the historian in the family, be sure to visit the Museum of The Islands Historical Society in Pine Island Center. It contains a wealth of information on the Calusas, Southwest Florida’s original native people, as well as “late arrivals” like Ponce de Leon in the 1500s.

And for the golf aficionado visit the Alden Pines and experience golf in its most natural setting. They claim to have the most wildlife of any area of Southwest Florida. At nearly any time, you can look up to the sky and see osprey in-flight. Many of Florida’s waterfowl live right on the golf course including Ibis, Blue Herons, Snowy-white Egrets and Wood Storks. They even have a couple families of Sea Otter that frequent the course often too, and alligators too.
