Property description

Nellie’s Nest is named after the previous owner & long time Bokeelia creative personality, Miss Nellie. Now owned by her nephew, this home is cozy, well loved and beautifully remodeled. Reminders of Miss Nellie exist in her original art work, lush gardens, and historic memorabilia. The home is on a quiet, dead end street with water on both sides of the road & is 2 streets away from the public boat ramp. It is located on the northern tip of Pine Island, a mere 5 minutes to open water. Pine Island has a 15 mile long public bike path which runs the full length of the island but the real focus of this quaint fishing village is gorgeous Charlotte Harbor and the Gulf of Mexico, and fantastic fishing for all ages. Cayo Costa State Park can be reached by private boat or ferry. Boca Grande Pass is the location of annual tarpon tournaments every June and is a brief 20 minute run by boat. You have to drive through Matlacha to get to Bokeelia so you already appreciated all the art galleries and restaurants (including Great Licks with home made ice cream!). Sit by the dock and watch the mullet jump in the canal while the egrets, herons, and osprey go fishing!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Robert grew up in Bokeelia and after years away from 'home' was able to return to southwest Florida. He loves being back on the water & goes fishing on the boat every chance he gets! We live 'in town', aka Fort Myers so are close by!

Why the Owner Chose Bokeelia, FL, USA:
This home was completely remodeled & updated after Hurricane Charley blew through in 2004. A lot of attention to detail was put into the renovation and it has been on the rental market since 2008. We now have guests returning for the 9th year in a row. Our guests rave about the peaceful location, the cleanliness, and how well appointed the house is - down to the wine bottle opener! Everything is on one level so there are no stairs to climb.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Outstanding salt water fishing - flats, inshore, & off shore; kayaking, sailing, boating, scuba diving. Tennis. Bike riding. Peace and quiet. Nature walks. Boat tours. Randell Research Center for Calusa Indian history & archeology. Bird watching. Shelling & swimming on barrier islands. Nature preserves. Sunset cruises on the Gulf. Mangoes, Key limes & other tropical fruit grown on the island. Museum of the Islands. Golf Course 2 miles away with 20+ other courses in the area. Post office within walking distance. Many restaurants accessible by boat or car. The Great Calusa Blueway paddling trail in minutes. Marina nearby for boat rentals. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge on Sanibel. Edison Winter Estates in Fort Myers. Cheeseburger in Paradise?? No further than Cabbage Key!
