About Renee and David Marazon

David and Renee have been traveling to Florida for many years enjoying swimming, boating and most of all fishing! They live in Cape Coral Florida and are excited to offer Casa di Peche, the "Fishing House" to fish lovers and vacationers.

They recently retired in Northwest Cape Coral, attracted to the peace and tranquility of the area as well as the proximity to all things that say "vacation here" -- swimming, boating, fishing, kayaking, paddle boarding, sightseeing, shopping, restaurants, island living, quaint towns, wildlife preserves and the tropical paradise feeling.

Renee and David Marazon purchased this house in 2016

Why Renee and David Marazon chose Saint James City

The most important consideration for great fishing is getting quickly to where the fish are by boat. That is what we enjoy most about Casa di Peche.

What makes this house unique

Pine Island is a tropical old world Florida destination with first class fishing, boating , kayaking, paddle boarding and wild life watching. The island offers hiking in wildlife preserves, birding, festivals, seafood, music, golf, art galleries, ancient Indian mounds and the quaint fishing village of Matlacha. You can bike or walk the island's long paved bike trails. You can also take boat tours to the outer islands known for secluded beaches, dolphin watching and kayaking.

Pine Island is the largest island (18 miles long, 2 miles wide with five unique communities) off Florida’s Southwestern Gulf coast. Just 15 minutes from Cape Coral and 30 minutes from Fort Myers, we have a secluded, small town atmosphere! Pine Island has an abundance of dolphin, manatee, an incredible variety of birds and wildlife, and of course: FISH! The South Pine Island area has been rated by Field and Stream magazine as one of the top 25 fishing locations in the country! Tarpon, Grouper, Sea Trout, Snook, Flounder, Snapper, Redfish and Triple Tail are a few of the popular game fish that are known worldwide as some of the best fighters and dinner entrees. There is nothing like a fresh caught fish prepared for dinner after a great day of fishing! A great location to fish - with almost every cast producing something on the hook. Pine Island has a paved bike path running the length of the island, an 18 hole golf course, public tennis courts, and numerous art galleries in Matlacha. Home to many artists, authors, song writers and poets, Pine Island is also known as “Florida’s Creative Coast”. Enjoy shopping in our fine art galleries and specialty shops.

Pine Island is a haven for birdwatchers and nature lovers, surrounded by mangroves, three aquatic preserves, acres of palms, tropical plants and fruit groves;

Dining on Pine Island draws many people to the island just to enjoy the great food and fun atmosphere of the local eateries!

Canal Home with Huge Boat Dock and Quick Access to Gulf Islands and Beaches!
average rating of 5.0 based on 3 reviews

Casa di Peche has everything you need for a relaxing vacation.

  • 5 of 5

House is directly on a canal so we saw manatees and dolphin, all manner of birds and a lone gator all from our lanai. Friendly boaters motored by to take a look at the key west style brightly painted homes.

Pine Island is all about fishing so bring or rent a boat and go exploring. Try Cabbage Key for a Cheeseburger in Paradise and the Bookelia fishing pier.

Beautiful home in a peaceful setting

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful new home, with plenty of space. Fully equipped kitchen! Internet included and it worked great. It was entertaining listening to all the wildlife and watching the jumping fish! We enjoyed the local bars, all on the water.

This newly built 3 bedroom home is beautiful. Owners have furnished and decorated with comfort and relaxation in mind. Kitchen contains everything you would ever need away from home. We didn't bring a boat so did not use the dock. Would definitely stay here again!!
