The Perfect Stay
The Captain's House was absolutely perfect. Very clean, plenty of space and everything you need while away from home. The pool and patio area is wonderful. The kids had a blast. Being on the canal and having a boat lift, is perfect for renting a boat literally around the corner. The neighborhood is beautiful and quiet. The restaurants around town are just another perk. We will absolutely stay here again and again.

St James City on Pine Island is old Florida. No high-rises or stop lights here, but lots of things to see and do. While St James City offers passive enjoyment and relaxation, it is also a great place for interactivity and exploration. This vacation home has water access to Gulf of Mexico.
Fishing- Great fishing everywhere! Hire a guide for a few days to learn local hot spots, baits and lures, then take off on your own. Fish Redfish Pass area north of Captiva Island. To the north is Cayo Costa, accessible only by boat with un-crowded white sand beaches, camping ,shelling ,trekking and surf fishing. Some of the best fishing in the world for Trout, Snook, Redfish, Snapper, Cobia, Tarpon, King Mackerel and Grouper. Less than 1 hour by water to the Boca Grande Tarpon Tournament.
Enjoy kayaking in the sheltered local back-waters or in the Pine island Sound, Tarpon Bay in the Ding Darling Preserve, or kayak by the full moon or hit Matlacha at sunset.
