Private 3Br, 3Ba Cottage on Canal, Minutes To Open Water - Fish, Kayak, Shell
Bocilla Breeze is the only single family cottage in the upscale Bocilla Island Club in Bokeelia, FL on the north end of beautiful Pine Island. A taste of old Florida with spacious ceilings, walls of windows & french doors and stylishly furnished in Tommy Bahama coastal decor.
It's a stilt home with three bedrooms/3 baths, an open main living area that includes kitchen, island, dining area, living room and screened porch. The master suite includes a king size bed, double sink vanity, walk-in shower and private commode. The guest bedroom includes twin beds that can be converted to king with a very comfortable mattress topper. The main bathroom next to it has a combination tub/shower and vanity. Both bedrooms share access to a side balcony overlooking the marina. The loft has a queen sleeper sofa or auto-inflatable raised bed and a full bath that with shower & vanity.
The home is stocked with everything you’ll need to entertain (cooking & serving pieces, gadgets, linens & things, games, puzzles and DVDs).
A locked storage area under the home provides secure and easy access to your gear. Off the back porch is the marina canal with slip/10k lb lift available April-July to accommodate a 34'' fishing or pleasure boat. Contact owner if needed outside that timeframe. Single and tandem kayaks are available which can be launched in the canal to the front. From there, it's just a few minutes to Charlotte Harbor, Pine Island Sound and the gulf for some of the most sought after fishing in the world. As a member of the community, Bocilla Island Club offers full access to two pools, tennis courts, shuffle board and clubhouse.
Step across the street onto the club's 40' private pier in Charlotte Harbor to fish or enjoy spectacular sunsets (or sunrises) while sipping a beverage or watching dolphins frolic. Whether watching the marine life, dipping a fishing line into the sea or watching birds hunt for their meals, the smell of the salt water and lullaby of the waves soothe away the worries of the world.
Funky art galleries and boutiques exploit the ambience of Old Florida. You'll find quaint and up-scale dining locales, from casual water-front hangouts to the up-scale Tarpon Lodge. Pine Island has some of the best and freshest seafood eateries.
Charlotte Harbor, Boca Grande Pass and Pine Island Sound offer diverse fishing experiences (tarpon, snook, redfish, snapper) and boat rentals/local guides are easily reserved. There's also 190-miles of kayak trails via the Great Calusa Blueways Paddling Trails and daily nature and shelling cruises to Cayo Costa, Captiva, Boca Grande and Sanibel.

Why Sharon Bouchard chose Bokeelia
In looking at options to escape the New England winters as we began planning for retirement, we sought a place with old Florida charm, privacy yet sense of community, a place our family could visit while on vacation, boating vs. beaches, fishing & kayaking - oh, and scuba diving. When we found this home, we knew it was the one, it had everything we wanted (except the diving!) We'll just have keep traveling to tackle that one.

Stop looking around and rent this Home! IT'S WONDERFUL
Best location and best rental we have found in the Bokeelia Island area. Entire home is very clean, spacious and comfortable. Simply launch your boat at the community boat ramp and park your trailer next to your car in a space provided. Boat lift works great, large equipment storage area next to vehicle parking perfect for fishing equipment, etc. , home is very well equipped with all kitchen supplies needed and many other extras. Furnishings were excellent, comfortable and clean. The entire home and grounds are well maintained and free of BUGS. Never saw a bug during our entire stay. Two large porches, one screened, one not, both had comfortable and sufficient furniture. Lots of amenities. WE LOVED IT!
Bocillia Breeze was just that-Impeccable! The house in every way... The attention to detail... and the amazing hospitality displayed by Sharon ..don't want to leave!
Thank you for being such great guests, David! We enjoyed having you and your wife at Bocilla Breeze and appreciate the goodies you left us, knowing we'd be arriving next. I wish you could've stayed a few more days though vs. having to fly back to a snowstorm! We hope to have you back again in the near future. - Sharon & Pete
Beautiful Home in Bokeelia!!!
I stayed here for a brief time, and I truly wish it was longer. This home is stunning. Located in the Bocilla Island Club, it is the only free standing home. It is well decorated as well as situated at the end of the canal. The owners ( Sharon) and their local property manager ( Sandi) are wonderful and extremely accommodating. We will be staying again for sure, and I can guarantee you it will be for a longer amount time. Thanks!
Thanks so much for your kind review John! We're so glad you had a great time during your fishing tournament and hope to have you again soon for a longer stay. -Sharon
Great Place to relax with friends and family. The owners are extremely welcoming and do a great job in preparation for the stay.
We will be back next year
Marty, you and your family were such wonderful guests and we really enjoyed having you. I'm glad to hear you had a great fishing getaway even though your ice cream turned to milk ;-) You were very gracious about using the spare and just wanted to let you know that the new refrigerator has arrived! We're looking forward to having you again next year. -Sharon & Pete
Perfect Tarpon Lodge For Entertaining Customers!
Everything about this home is perfect for the weekend getaway to tarpon fish or the full week like I did. My customers and I enjoyed being picked up by Captain Rhett Morris from Beyond Borders Outfitters each of the 5 days I had him chartered and on the other few days we just splashed my boat off the lift which is located right behind the house. It couldn't be easier! The ramp is across from the lift and there's a marina for all the last minutes things we forgot to pack. The home has an awesome screened in porch and a large deck with a BBQ grill that made chilling after fishing unbelievably relaxing. As soon as I get my dates for next year from my guide I plan on booking at least another week. This house fit perfectly for summer tarpon fishing and I can't wait to go back!
Jeff, thanks for sharing a fisherman's perspective of your stay! I'm so glad you and your clients had a great time and enjoyed our home and the thrill of the local waters. We haven't yet tried tarpon fishing ourselves but will definitely consider your recommendations. We're looking forward to having you back again next year when its a full moon! Thank you again - Sharon & Pete
