Experience what old Florida was like. This adorable bright turquoise concrete block beach cottage is right on intersecting canals, five minutes (idling) to Pine Island sound. The view from the huge back porch is straight down a beautiful canal lined with sailboats, coconut palms and beautiful sunsets. Bike path runs the entire length of the island and we have bikes ready for you. Dolphins and manatees swim right under the dock.
Fishing is excellent, even right from the dock. We have some fishing poles if you want to try it. The floors are tiled and the tiled, screened-in back porch has a ceiling fan. You can sit and sip Margaritas while you listen to the sounds of dolphin and manatees gliding past.
Pine Island is known for its music. Numerous local bands play everything from rock n roll to island rock to country. You can walk to the Waterfront restaurant in about 2 minutes and enjoy great seafood and lots of local atmosphere.
Many kayak routes are close by and the area is very popular with kayakers and nature lovers.

About Thom Kuhns or Kathy Kuhns
We bought this house in 2001. It was built in 1958 and we basically gutted it and started from scratch. When we reached the bottom layer of paint it was turquoise so we decided to paint the 'new' house the same color. Everything was updated to current building codes. We added a dock and boat lift and had the seawall redone (2008). New wood floors in bedrooms in 2013.

Why Thom Kuhns or Kathy Kuhns chose Saint James City
Kathy is a Florida native and Thom has been here most of his life. We love the water and really never dreamed that we would be able to have a house on the water. We get there every chance we can and plan to retire there in a few years so you should enjoy our rental while you can!
What makes this Cottage unique
Even though it is close to the city of Cape Coral you feel that you are way out on an island. Our house is at the very tip of St. James City (southernmost). At night you hear the sounds of the water and really feel like you are on a deserted island. The fishing is fantastic. If you go out in the morning it is so easy to just come back in for lunch and a nap and go right back out on the boat. Our friends love to come with us for weekends of fishing, music, good times.

Quiet place on the water
My husband and I brought our kayaks, and made it a fishing weekend. We enjoyed the quietness of the island and the quick access to the gulf. This place was perfect, had all the amenities we needed. We plan on making it a yearly stop for those long fishing weekends.
P.S. The manatees were pretty cool as well.😊
Great home on a canal!
This is our second time staying at this home and was just as great as the first time! Perfect location, floor plan, fishing, and riding bikes. Owner is great to work with and you will love this perfect little house!
Great location. Great setup. Great visit!
My husband and I enjoyed our stay over thanksgiving week. The house has so much to offer including everything we needed to prepare our thanksgiving feast! The location of the house in conjunction to the canal opening made for prime boat access and utter convenience! We loved it! Thank you!
So happy that you and your family had a great time!
Excellent location, clean and cozy, good amenities, nice dockage.
The owners we're exceptional to deal with; very quick responses and friendly! The house is in a great location for visiting Fort Myers Sanibel Island cayo costa and up the river. It is a small house but will accommodate two adults and two children just fine as it did for us. We have no complaints over all and we will definitely stay there again in the future!
Thank you for your nice review. You and your family are welcome back any time!
It was perfect and wonderful.
I felt like I was at home. The place is amazing.
Thanks for taking such good care of our little place! Come back any time!
Exactly what we were looking for. This house is immaculate. We cooked every night and the kitchen was stocked with all the necessary utensils and even condiments. Comfortable beds, great shower. And best of all, you're right on the water!
We are so happy that you enjoyed our place and hope to see you again.
