Being in a quiet neighborhood doesn’t mean we are isolated. We are minute from multiple little breakfast places and great lunch and dinner fare. Don’t want to go by car? Go by boat. Take your boat to our favorite restaurants and bars; Woody’s, The Low Tiki and The Waterfront.

Unpack your bags and settle in. Fish off the dock, clean your catch and fire up the grill. Watch for dolphins and manatees. Eat breakfast out on the deck, but watch out for our Ergret, Gerald, he might want to share your breakfast.

Make our home, your home and live like a Pine Island local for a while.

About Carl Jervis

I moved to St. James City 5 yrs ago so I never had to shovel snow again!

I love the island life, having dolphins and manatees in my backyard, watching the boaters go by. And did I mention- No Snow?

Pine Island is "Old Florida", no high rises, no crowds, just perfect for me and my two Border Terriers, Meg and Tater. We love it here.

Carl Jervis purchased this cottage in 2016

Why Carl Jervis chose Saint James City

Location, location, location!

Super fast access to open water, minutes to several dinner and lunch spots, great floor plan and in a super neighborhood.

What makes this cottage unique

FishTales Vacation Rental on Pine Island was totally renovated top to bottom in 2016, we removed walls, added more windows, put in a brand new AC system, kitchen, deck and outdoor shower. I love the open floor plan, the bright and airy feel it now has.

The quick access to Pine Island Sound, the beaches of Cayo Costa, the kayak trails right out the back door.... all make for a great vacation.

We hope you will like FishTales Vacation Rental on Pine Island as much as our previous guests have.

Great couples getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here over Memorial Day weekend. The home was very clean and organized. Great getaway weekend even if though the weather wasn’t the best for fishing. The neighborhood was very quiet and great ICW access from canal. Just wish we had better weather and more time. Thanks again! Karen G

Fisherman's Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The home is exactly as pictured. Nicely appointed and updated home. Very clean and had everything we could have wanted. We were very comfortable for our month-long stay. Walk in closet with lots of hangers in the bedroom we used. 2nd smaller bedroom we did not use. Plush towels. Large fridge with icemaker and filtered water. Gas grill was a plus.

Great place for fisher people. Could not catch anything other than catfish off the dock. The pelicans were disappointed. Saw lots of ladyfish jumping out of the water but could not catch them. My husband had to go out in boats to catch dinner. It would have been prefect if we had brought our boat down.

Nice deck out back and nice high top table and chairs on side of home that we used to cool down after our bike rides. I biked to the trail on Stringfellow Road every morning. We had higher than average temps (83+) for most of our month. The air conditioner kept us cool inside.

The "porch" off the dockside was nice for relaxing while reading a book or listening to the music system.

We had only two issues: TV remote in the bedroom did not work. You could get one channel by turning on the tv manually. Someone was supposed to come and check it, but they never showed. Kayak advertised was not usable because there is no ladder to get down into the water and it was quite a drop to the water. We also did not have a vehicle that allowed us to transport it to one of the marinas. We rented kayaks from the marinas instead.

We met some nice neighbors. My husband went fishing and golfing with them. We played bingo at neighboring communities and lodges. We went to the Community Swimming Pool which was heavenly on hot days!

There are lots of good options for eating out!

Overall, we loved the house!

Very nice, well maintained property. Every convenience has been thought of. Lovely welcome goodies on the counter when we arrived. Quiet island, off the main tourist areas. Nice side trips to other islands easily available. Many very nice restaurants.
