About the property

Spacious 3BR/3BA on a private beach

Whether you are a beach lover, a birdwatcher, or on a hunt for the perfect sunset, our home is just the place for you!

Located on a private white sand beach, towards the end of a secluded peninsula, the house has 270 degree panoramic views of 3 bodies of water (San Carlos Bay, Tarpon Bay, and Ladyfinger Lake).

It is also situated in the heart of the Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge. A variety of bird species perch on our dock during the day, and you can spot dolphins and manatees playing just a few yards away. The property is also home to a family of endangered gopher tortoises! Watch the wildlife from the comfort of the home, or take a kayak out to the nearby Rookery Islands for a truly spectacular showing of birds.

The house itself has been recently constructed (mid 2011), with all modern amenities, appliances and styling. There is a pool and a hot tub, multiple TVs, WiFi, massaging shower heads, and a Bosch gas stove for the master chef.

This house is our little slice of heaven that we'd love to share with you. There's nothing like watching the sun set on the bay from the rooftop deck, or falling asleep to the soft crashing of the waves just 15 yards from the bedroom window. We hope you take a look for yourself!

We recently hosted German adventurer Dr. Dirk Rohrbach. He’s a contributing photographer and author for National Geographic’s German-language books, and is well-known in his home country for hosting a longtime magazine-style radio show and creating award-winning live presentations.Dr.Rohrbach was here for a nine day, 100-mile kayak adventure along the Great Calusa Blueway. His journey will be featured in “50 States — A Journey into America.” That’s a five-year project in which he aims to document the people, places and experiences that make the United States special.

As his local hosts at the Lee County Dept of Tourism said : After days on the water, wind and rain – your home was a extra special treasure for him. He was so grateful and appreciative. He is truly a nature lover and your home was the best possible place for him to appreciate and enjoy." The last three pics are of Dirk, kayaking in the waters around our house. Dirk's Comments : "What a gorgeous oasis ! Spent three nights after paddling 100 miles of the Calusa Blueway, fished right from the dock and caught a sheephshead after just 15mins ;-)

Super clean, quiet with extra soft mattresses for a rejuvenating sleep. Doesn’t get more relaxing!'

Fourth time back and the best ever

  • 5 of 5

An entire month of sunny days could have something to do with it or finally figuring out some effective dock fishing strategies. The pool did not need to be heated as the nights were warm. Nothing can beat the parade of birds flying in to the nature preserve to nest for the night and back out across the bay in the morning. Osprey, egret, ibis, heron, pelican sightings are routine as well as dolphins cavorting. The entire back of the house is glass and has a water view. Very comfortable accomodation with spectacularly spacious master suite. Responsive owner. Great privacy and quiet. We were there for ten days before we felt the desire to explore a beach and we never left the island.

A perfect paradise

  • 5 of 5

This home is lovely. It’s an opportunity to step outside a hectic world and into nature’s paradise. Sitting on the dock as dolphins play, birds soar and a sunset sets Just takes your breath away. The house itself is comfortable and full of personal touches like awesome light fixtures. It’s great for a couple or a family. You will never forget it! Loved it!!!

Attractive and comfortable house. Great location. Responsive owner.

  • 5 of 5

The house is near everything, yet feels isolated. Being at the end of the road gives the feel of Old Florida, just what we wanted. Dolphins and osprey were ever present. Our dealings with the owner were limited, however, he was congenial and responsive (we asked for more wash clothes and he immediately ordered on Amazon). Having bikes and SUP's and kayaks delivered made the vacation an adventure.

Great retreat for a family get-away!

  • 4 of 5

This property is located on a tranquil part of the island for a truly relaxing vacation but still close enough to town. The home is spacious with gorgeous amenities in the kitchen and bathrooms, which easily accomodated our family of four. We enjoyed using the kayaks, the private dock and pool/spa. Lots of beautiful birds hanging around and even some dolphins!

We loved our stay at Woodring Point. The house was just as described. Very spacious, private and so relaxing. We had coffee on our private pier in the morning as we watched the dolphin and sea life swim into our bay for their morning feed. We saw a bald eagle perched on the same dock every morning. We enjoyed the hot tub in the evening and the pool was surprisingly large. Everything was very clean. The ride into town was very short and was definitely worth the ride. We had questions before we left on our trip and while we were there and the homeowner was very prompt in returning our call. He couldn't have been any more accommodating. We would absolutely rent this home again!!
