About Heather

Rick and Heather arrived in Saint James City in early January 2015 from Ontario, Canada and fell in love with the area. They knew they couldn’t leave the island without a place to call their own. The opportunity to purchase the Golden Palms Resort came up and they immediately knew this was the one. With Pine Island’s laid back lifestyle, it is a perfect place to unwind from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. No high rises, big box stores and barely any fast food chains, this truly is Florida’s best kept secret.

Heather purchased this studio in 2015

Why Heather chose Pine Island

With the old Florida charm apparent from the outside, the property lends itself to a simpler time when the pace was slow and relaxed. The view from the back can not be beat with all sizes of boats passing through during the day. Watching the sunrise from the private, screened in lanais truly feels like paradise.

What makes this studio unique

Walking distance to restaurants and bars, boat launch directly across the street, The Golden Palms Waterfront Resort is situated in the ideal location for guests that like quick, easy access to amenities.

Nice place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fun time! Relaxed atmosphere .... enjoyed Sanibel/Captiva area until the one time we hit traffic.... then we didn't want to leave Pine Island. We tried the local places to eat and hang out..... we brought a game and played at one bar, listened to music at another. Ferry to Cayo Costa State Park- worth it, but make sure you explore!

Exactly as described, great value

  • 5 of 5

Friendly reception on arrival. Nicely decorated. Roomy deck/patio for community sharing. Private screened in area with table & 2 chairs. You can see they have put a lot into updating this place. Can sit for hours, reading, watching birds and boats go by.

Kitchen has newer appliances, Pans and dishes included. Enough room to store food supplies. Laundry room available in the afternoon, reasonable fee, new appliances. Great stay! Would recommend

Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This unit had all the comforts of home. Very relaxed atmosphere, right across the street from the Low Key Tiki (which had great fish tacos also). We were able to keep the boat docked here. The place was very clean and had a comfortable bed and full kitchen. Beware of the no-see-ums at sunset, but that's anywhere on the island. Looking forward to staying here again.

Comfortable, clean, walking distance to restaurants

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a long weekend. We love Pine Island, it is truly a best kept secret. The room was clean and comfortable. It was so nice to have the boat at the dock. The deck was really nice with the chairs and piped in music. The owners are very nice and the gentlemen maintaining the premises was really nice as well. It was within walking distance of a few restaurants and bars. Great place to stay. We had a great time. Thank you Rick and Heather.
