About the property

This is a beautiful and traditional Florida stilt home, with elevated view for your ideal vacation on undeveloped Pine Island. The lakeside house is the pride and joy of it's English owners and is their own vacation home. It has been completely refurbished to a high standard with top quality modern furnishings with the accent on luxury and an attention to detail. The house has clean lines without clutter. We have a beautiful private pool and sun deck with uninterrupted views of the lake. You will wake up to stunning views of the lake and golf course, with the ocean only a short walk away.

We have numerous fruit trees for you to sample including, Mango, lime,papaya and coconut.

The tropical golf course of Alden pines is available to you, if boating is more for you then you are within minutes of 4 marinas where you can catch a boat to the surrounding islands' unspoiled beaches, or you may want to get back to nature and take a bike ride on the quiet roads or go fishing in the ocean or the lake right in front on the house.

About Iain Massey

We are an English family who live in Manchester in the north of England. We have been visiting Florida for more than 20 years.

We run a business in the UK and our sucess is built on great customer service, we adopt the same attitude with renting our vacation home.

Iain Massey purchased this house in 2006

Why Iain Massey chose Bokeelia

We first visited Pine Island as we wanted to go to Cayo Costa, a beautiful unspoilt barrier Island accessible only by boat and they run from points on Pine Island.

Having previously only been to Sanibel and Captiva we immediatley fell in love with the tranquility of the place and decided to shelve our plans on buying a vacation home in France and look at Pine Island.

We decided to simply drive around the areas of the Island and we knew as soon as we saw this house it was for us.

The area of Bokeelia and Alden pines is like stepping back in time where people have time for each other and are happy to stop for a chat. I have been to many places around the world and the absence of any form of crime or threat in this area is quite unbelievable.

We just love it.

What makes this house unique

The views over the lake from the sitting room whilst having breakfast are with us when we are back home in the cold, wet English winters (and sometimes summers).

Very quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We love the location of this home as it close to our favorite beaches. We loved returning to the peace and quiet after a day out sightseeing. The pool is wonderful with a view of the lake, we enjoyed many beautiful sunsets.

The island is great with lots of shops and restaurants. You will not want to miss the ferry to Cayo Costa and Cabbage Key. Owners are very helpful and have included everything you would need.

Amazing Spot and Island

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I rented this place for a long weekend to take my grandmother. This place was perfect for all of us. Great location, great views and great pool. My husband and I loved going around the island to see different places and my grandma loved spending time at the home. We were all so comfortable in the space and we had such a great day around the pool. We got the best laughs and conversations.

Old Florida charm on quaint Pine Island

  • 4 of 5

Spacious 3 bedroom house on a canal/lake with a great pool! We loved the neighborhood and the quietness than Pine Island offered. Golf course nearby runs an afternoon 'deal' after 2p.m. for $20. Big kitchen and dining room tables allow plenty of room for games, dining. House could use a couple of maintenance issues looked at - dishwasher didn't clean dishes so we washed dished by hand and screen on front outside door would have been great to allow breezes to come in. Overall, a great place to stay, which we did for the months of February and March, 2017!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review our property, I am pleased you enjoyed your stay for February and March. Thank you for your comments about the dishwasher and a screen on the door. When you reported the dishwasher to me I immediately got our property manager to call and see you and she took a look at the dishwasher and could not find a fault so offered to get the repair company in to take a look but you declined this and said it was fine. After you left I got the dishwasher serviced just in case there was an intermittent fault. All seems fine. Thank you for your feedback on this. The door does have an opening window with a pull down screen built into the door. Thanks again for your feedback, it is most welcome and I look forward to welcoming you in the future.

Very relaxing vacation home - love the backyard view/pool

  • 4 of 5

Myself, my husband and 4 of our friends enjoyed this Bokellia vacation home for 2 nights. The owner was very responsive to all my emails/questions. The home has plenty of room. There was a little feedback I gave the owner after we returned home but nothing major. The house is in a nice quiet neighborhood and the views from the back room were wonderful. We saw a lot of wildlife each day and loved the relaxing pool and screen porch. I would definitely recommend the vacation home to others.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your response and the time taken. I am glad you enjoyed your stay on beautiful Pine Island. I appreciate the feedback and have contacted the gardeners to have the palms trimmed as I said they should do this but sometimes need a reminder. I am glad you enjoyed the lovely garden and porch we have. Thank you for your recommendation to other guests. I look forward to welcoming you again. Regards Iain

Pine Island is a well kept secret and does not have the traffic jams and mass tourism of it's more famous neighbor Sanibel. The island is a mass producer of mango and palm trees so you can imagine it's beauty. If you are looking for a laid back vacation in the real Florida then Pine Island is for you. With only a 15 minute drive to Cape Coral and a further 15 minutes to Fort Myers you are never far away from the shops and restaurants, although Pine Island boasts some excellent restaurants and a variety of shops, including a supermarket of its own. Pine Island can best be described as tranquil and natural. The house is right on the beautiful Alden Pines tropical golf course, the golf club also has tennis courts available.
