About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Pine Island is an authentic old Florida island. Not a beach or tourist area but a quaint, mostly undeveloped boating community. An angler’s paradise. You’ll have a hard time choosing which of the easy day trips to take by water-taxi or car. Experience all of the beaches and activities the surrounding area offers. Then come home to Pine Island!

Everyone knows the winters here are perfect. We love summers too where you'll practically have the beaches to yourself with the best water temperatures for swimming and snorkeling.

Ft. Myers Beach has sugary white beaches, sand volleyball, miles of unique shops and nightlife for all ages. You'll definitely want to pack up our lawn chairs, cooler, sand buckets and beach towels and spend the whole day shelling and relaxing on Sanibel Island.

Want to really get away? Our home is 5 minutes to the ferry that will take you from Pine Island to Cayo Costa. This undeveloped island has seven miles of secluded white sand beaches. Pack a picnic because there are no stores, restaurants or even electricity on Cayo Costa. What does it have? Swimming, shelling, dolphins, manatees, osprey, egrets, pelicans, magnificent frigate birds, bald eagles and much more.

The FISHING off Pine Island is some of the best in the world year round. If you don't have a boat, take our lawn chairs and cooler and fish off the bridge or island piers. Everything in the gulf swims under the bridge. Shark, snook, red snapper and mullet are common catches. Pine Island has island-inspired art galleries and shops and incredible meals at relaxed, waterfront restaurants.

This sunny stilt duplex vacation home has a queen bed and two twin beds. Extra air mattresses and linens are available for larger families. Limit of 4 adults. Fully equipped kitchen, washer & dryer and BBQ grill.

YOUR family should be SMILIN' ON PINE ISLAND!

Keywords: Tropical 2br/1ba stilt duplex home in Bokeelia on Pine Island! Room to park your boat! Walk a few blocks (1/2 mile) to the community swimming pool, tennis courts and restaurants. You will find incredible fishing on Pine Island! Approx 30 miles drive (only a few miles by boat) to world-class beaches in Ft. Myers and on Sanibel Island. Approx 30 miles to Ft. Myers airport (RSW) or Punta Gorda airport (PGD).

Cozy, clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about the owners communication and commitment to making our stay on Pine Island a great one. Mike was extremely responsive to our questions and when we found out we would have a couple of overnight visitors during our stay, he made sure that he had new blow up mattresses, pillows and linens delivered in time for their arrival. Way above and beyond our expectations! We were incredibly impressed! The house is adorable and fit our family of 4 very comfortably. We had everything we needed and more. They even had a guitar and ukulele hanging on the walls. Our daughter fell in love with the ukulele and ordered one as soon as she got home from our trip. We enjoyed the slower pace of the island, but loved that we could easily get to some very fun and beautiful beaches for the day. We packed up the cooler and chairs from the storage room and off we went! We will not forget this trip to Pine Island. Thank you Mike and Sherry!

No place like home

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's second stay at the Wilson House. Each day (after outings to the Sanibel beaches, Caya Costa State Park, Marco Island, etc.), someone in our party of 4 always mentioned about returning "home." That, I thought, spoke volumes about how comfortable everyone felt here and how cozy a place this is to stay. We were even welcomed this year with a bouquet of flowers on the kitchen table. The house includes everything one could need; we especially appreciate having a washer and dryer so we didn't have to pack a week's worth of clothes when we came. We used the beach umbrella, beach chairs, beach bag and towels every day and the Yahtzee game (in the game closet) every evening. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood, near several restaurants and deli, and near the Tropic Star marina (for kayaking and for the ferry ride to Caya Costa). It is about an hour from Sanibel, which is an easy drive. Wifi is available in the house. We were able to connect with our smartphones, but found that we spent the majority of the week disconnected, enjoying the sun, the sand, the water and each other's company. Thank you, again, to Michael and Sherry, for sharing their home with us and allowing us to call this place "home" for a week!

Great Area, Home, and Owner

  • 4 of 5

The owners were provided a lot of information on the area and things to do well in advance of our stay. All of them were excellent recommendations from day trips to restaurants. The home was well equipped with amenities to enjoy whatever trip you may take around Pine Island - fishing, beach enjoyment, kayaking. It was great not having to bother bringing towels, coolers, ice packs, etc. Cayo Costa is a must visit if you are staying on Pine Island or in the surrounding area. Couldn't have asked for a more involved owner. Thanks again!

The bestest vacation ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, daughter and I just spent a week at the Wilson House. The accommodations were wonderful and you could tell that the person picking out wall hangings, etc. had a good sense of humor. The Wilsons gave us detailed instructions on the best places to go for swimming, kayaking and every other kind of activity you could imagine. We did as many as we could, then came home at night for a relaxing night of cards, movies, or whatever. The sand on Fort Myers Beach is some of the softest, finest sand you will see anywhere, and the kayaking at Bokeelia was awesome. We had fun parasailing at Fort Myers Beach, as well. The Wilsons had a lot of recommendations for the best eating in the area, so we took advantage of their advice. It was the best vacation ever, and the hardest part of the whole vacation was packing up to go back home. Thank you, Michael and Sherry for sharing with us your little corner of paradise!
