About Van & Irene Davis
This home is owned by the Davis/Connelly family. We try to use it as much as possible when other folks aren't! We enjoy crusing the island on our bikes or golf cart and love to fish in Charlotte Harbor. We live in Fort Myers which makes this a perfect 'getaway'...close to home but on Island Time! Be sure to check us out on Facebook too!
Van & Irene Davis purchased this House in 2007
Why Van & Irene Davis chose Bokeelia
We love the laid back atmosphere of the island and of course the great fishing! We wanted a home that would stand out and get noticed.
What makes this House unique
Our favorite thing to do is go out in the boat and fish. We usually ALWAYS catch something and it is fun not knowing what is on your line until you pull it in. We of course, love to catch something we can eat...trout, redfish and snapper.

Everything about this rental experience was wonderful. The owners were communicative and friendly. The home was immaculate and comfortable. The location was ideal. We would rent from this owner anytime!
Thanks for your kind words. Come back anytime and visit us.
Round and round we go!
Greatness. Van and Irene were exceptional hosts. There is nothing bad to say about the round house. We had a wonderful time. Pine Island and Bokeelia are very laid back places, so don't be in a hurry. Bring your fishing rods and an appetite for seafood! Comfy, cozy, awesome during during a thunderstorm. Thanks again y'all.
Thank you so much for your kind words. We are so glad you came to visit with us and that you enjoyed the laid back lifestyle! Hope you caught lots of fish and enjoyed some good seafood. Let us know when you are ready to book next year!
We enjoyed the house. It was the perfect location for us. It had plenty of parking for our boat. The ramp was 3 minutes away. The home was well equipped. We thank you for sharing with us. Until next time.
Thank you! Glad our home worked out for your group. We would love to have you visit with us again.
We spent a week here on a family vacation. The house had EVERYTHING we needed. Since we were traveling by minivan with 6 adults we appreciated the fact that we only had to pack our clothes. There were plenty of bath towels, extra linens, blankets, and beach towels. Having 3 full bathrooms was also a huge plus! Bathrooms had a small supply of the essentials which was nice. The kitchen has just about every kind of cooking appliance you would want, but could use a cookie sheet and a better 9x13 pan. We the board games that were available --hadn't played Sequence in years!
The location was great. Walking distance to the marina and the Lazy Flamingo restaurant. The owners were wonderful and very accommodating with any questions or requests we had. We had a great stay!
So glad your family could come visit. Thanks for your kind words; yes, we are slowly replacing well worn kitchen items. Appreciate the TLC you gave our home; sounds like you guys did a lot and I'm glad the weather was great while you were here!
Warm and Quiet, Restful and Fun
If you are looking for a new experience, The Roundhouse can provide that for you! We enjoyed the whole architectural aspect of the house and figuring out how it was built. The little wooden album helps one to get an idea of the process. There is plenty of parking room. Furnishings were comfy and you can find a quiet spot to read, or go for a pleasant walk around the neighborhood. Many TV's with your choice of shows. Van and Irene have supplied plenty of reading material, games and movies for those rainy days or shower spells you sometimes get.
Three bathrooms, two queen beds, and a sleeper sofa were all quite comfortable. Plenty of towels and bedding are provided. The kitchen is well stocked and has plenty of appliances, including dishwasher, microwave, electric range, a Keurig and Mr. Coffee makers. Lots of counter space was so helpful when you like to do your own cooking and lots of cookware is provided for your enjoyment. Plenty of cleaning supplies and each floor has a vacuum cleaner plus a stacking laundry center on the first floor bedroom floor.
We enjoyed the bird life in the area and the frequent visits of the Osprey who liked to enjoy his breakfast there. If you are into fishing, there are spots nearby or you can go to the pier at the end of the island. If you prefer larger fish and challenges, there are marina's nearby that offer fishing charters to get you out there, or rent a boat for yourself if you don't bring your own.
When you are ready to go to another island there are tours nearby at Jug's Creek Marina on the Tropic Star. They have trips that are half day or all day to Cabbage Key, North Captiva or Cayo Casta. The captain is quite entertaining! And don't forget to have a meal out at Capt's Con's at the pier! Good stuff!! You have to love fish and seafood which dominates the menu (for good reason!
Be sure to plan some time in Matlacha, a quaint fishing village located on the road that takes you back and forth to the mainland. You have to go through it so you might as well stop and partake of the appeal of this artist enclave!
Plan to enjoy your stay at The Roundhouse and its location!!
Thanks so much D & K. Glad you had a relaxing time and we look forward to having you back!
Unique vacation getaway
Very special design that is hard to find. Loved the living space on the top floor. Very well equipped kitchen for those wanting to make their own meals. The close marina for renting a boat for water excursions is great and the staff very helpfull. Having the lazy Flamingo Bar and grill close by for last minute changes in your dining schedule within walking distance is great. The food is good also. While out walking the neighborhood is friendly and safe to walk in. Very eager to say hi to you and let you know you are welcome. Unique vacation spot for family and friends.
Thanks so much for visiting our home. Appreciate your kinds words! Come back and see us. We love the Lazy Flamingo too...they have the best French fires.
