Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a thoroughly enjoyable time on Pine Island. Your home is lovely; my husband and I both thought the decor was attractive, relaxing , and comfortable. We spent a great deal of home time on the lanai studying the golfers, which didn't always help our games, and especially relishing the sunsets - the western exposure was perfect.

WE LOVE PINE ISLAND

  • 5 of 5
We love Pine Island, and we enjoyed our stay at this property. The owner and local manager are very helpful and responsive to any concerns. My husband is a golfer. He played golf at Alden Pines three days a week, and I went to water aerobics at the community pool three times a week. There are two water taxi companies to take visitors to remote island communities. There are also fishing guide services for fishermen. We will return.
