Overview

About the property

All of the modern conveniences with the feel of Old Florida.

Five minutes out to San Carlos Bay by boat on the Paradise Canal. Boating, Fishing and visiting the local pubs are always popular fare in this Old Florida Island Town of St James City.This lovely pool home has 2 bedrooms and a sleeping loft and 3 bathrooms. Large open living areas with beautifully appointed wood features. Recently built custom home with all of the modern features. Take in the beautiful views from you raised porch. Pet friendly. Lots of parking.

St James City on Pine Island is old Florida. No high-rises or stop lights here, but lots of things to see and do. While St James City offers passive enjoyment and relaxation, it is also a great place for interactivity and exploration. This vacation home has direct water access to Gulf of Mexico.

Fishing- Great fishing everywhere! Hire a guide for a few days to learn local hotspots, baits and lures, then take off on your own. One of our favorite spots is the Redfish Pass area north of Captiva Island. To the north is Cayo Costa, accessible only by boat with un-crowded white sand beaches, camping ,shelling ,trekking and surf fishing. Some of the best fishing in the world for Trout, Snook, Redfish, Snapper, Cobia, Tarpon, King Mackerel and Grouper. Less than 1 hour by water to the Boca Grande Tarpon Tournament.

Enjoy kayaking in the sheltered local back-waters or in the Pine island Sound, Tarpon Bay in the Ding Darling Preserve, or kayak by the full moon or hit Matlacha at sunset.

Have a 'Cheeseburger in Paradise' on Cabbage key which inspired the song. Every square inch of the interior is papered with $1 bills and more than $10,000 which fall off every year is donated to charity.

Mango Mania: Pine Island is home to the Mango Mania Tropical Fruit Festival every July. The island also commercially grows guavas, longans, lychees, sapodillas, jak fruit and a variety of other rare fruits you can pick up at local fruit stands.

Dig a lost civilization: Join archeologists from the University of Florida (Go Gators!) Museum of Natural History as they excavate or do a Saturday tour of the Randall Research Center, Pineland and its Calusa Indians settlement, mound and canal system.

Visit the 'fishingest bridge in the world' in Matlacha. Tour the arts and crafts shops and catch local artists at work. This tiny Technicolor village is reminiscent of Key West in the 50's. Fresh seafood right off the boat. Several excellent restaurants.
