About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 6)

So close to the water you feel like you are staying on it!

Of all the homes available on Pleasure Island, this home is unique as to proximity to the water. No mangroves to block your view, it is so close to the water you really can fish off the porch! If you are two couples looking for the perfect home, we can set it up with two king beds (regular is one king/2 twin). This elegantly furnished home is decorated in West Indies style (aka Tommy Bahama) and includes the use of an infra-red grill. (Propane Grills are not allowed by the Association).

Unexpected hidden gem. Quiet island life.

If you want rest and relaxation, then this is the place for you. Cindy & Brian will make sure you are well taken care of. They go above and beyond to make your stay enjoyable. The residents are friendly and outgoing. Seems like you have NEW friends when you leave. Thanks for great memories.

This is a great place to get away

  • 5 of 5

The property is a great get away. It has everything you need to just relax. Hosts Bryan and Cindy are gracious taking care of whatever you need. The Home is comfortable, although wish there was a tv in the master bedroom. Happy to recommend this property.

Peaceful get away in Everglades City

  • 4 of 5

Very nice house, though they call it a cabin, on small island in river. Island was set up more like a resort then a subdivision. Only item of special note is that you are on an island with only access (unless you have brought your own boat, is ferry (a small pontoon boat) operated by very nice couple who function as island's concierge. Regular hours for ferry service are 8AM to 10PM, with other hours by special arrangement. If you are the type of travelers that are always on the run in your vehicle you might feel a little confined by this. House was clean and very well stocked. Environment was very restful.

Relaxation at its best .... bring binoculars

  • 5 of 5

Looking to relax...this is the place. Looking to view nature....this is the place. Looking for outstanding customer service....this is the place. House was open, spacious, clean and had everything you needed. Only thing lacking was having front porch\deck being screened in. Once sun set the mosquitoes drove you inside. Although island is only 5 acres really never ran into others living\renting there except at pool which was perfectly heated. View of nature from front porch was excellent. Saw dolphins, eagle, osprey, ibis, pelican, and jumping mullet. Concierges, Brian and Cindie, were wonderful - friendly and always available for boat ride on\off the island. Superb service.

Great Week on Pleasure Isand

  • 5 of 5

We rented three units on the island for our party of 11. It was great. Very quiet and low key. The cottages were great; roomy, well done and appointed and clean. The services were excellent. Mark, the island manager, was great. He shuttled us to dinner several nights and was available an a moment's notice night and day!

Fishing great. Lots of dolphins and manatees. Pool/club area very nice and refreshing.

Lots of great local food! Definitely will come back in years to come.

Excellent value.

Beautiful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for four weeks in this gorgeous house on Pleasure Island. It was like stepping into a magazine! The weather was fantastic....and we were able to see dolphins and manatees going by our front door. The concierge service was the greatest ever....with Mark, Troy and Sandy always at our beck and call. We often had them drop us off by boat at Camellia's Restaurant....where the food was simply awesome...the best we had in Florida! My husband spent most of his time on the water trying to catch fish and he also had lots of help from the management. The people are so friendly, yet don't get in your space. We went on several kayak trips out amongst the 10,000 islands and enjoyed every minute of it. Yes, Spirit the cat was a great companion down at the dock. We made use of the gym equipment up at the common room and also the lovely pool. Linda and Randy were beyond accommodating in making us feel welcome.......thanks so much to you two! You have a great place there! Only problem is, my husband wants to come back with his fishing buddies next time so he can fish 24/!

Watch the manatees and dolphin swim by from your porch. Rent a boat or take the Park Service Ferry for some of the most spectacular sunsets over the gulf. Most of all, just sit back and enjoy nature up close!
