This is a beautiful and traditional Florida stilt home, with elevated view for your ideal vacation on undeveloped Pine Island. The lakeside house is the pride and joy of it's English owners and is their own vacation home. It has been completely refurbished to a high standard with top quality modern furnishings with the accent on luxury and an attention to detail. The house has clean lines without clutter. We have a beautiful private pool and sun deck with uninterrupted views of the lake. You will wake up to stunning views of the lake and golf course, with the ocean only a short walk away.
We have numerous fruit trees for you to sample including, Mango, lime,papaya and coconut.
The tropical golf course of Alden pines is available to you, if boating is more for you then you are within minutes of 4 marinas where you can catch a boat to the surrounding islands' unspoiled beaches, or you may want to get back to nature and take a bike ride on the quiet roads or go fishing in the ocean or the lake right in front on the house.
We are an English family who live in Manchester in the north of England. We have been visiting Florida for more than 20 years.
We run a business in the UK and our sucess is built on great customer service, we adopt the same attitude with renting our vacation home.
Iain Massey purchased this house in 2006
We first visited Pine Island as we wanted to go to Cayo Costa, a beautiful unspoilt barrier Island accessible only by boat and they run from points on Pine Island.
Having previously only been to Sanibel and Captiva we immediatley fell in love with the tranquility of the place and decided to shelve our plans on buying a vacation home in France and look at Pine Island.
We decided to simply drive around the areas of the Island and we knew as soon as we saw this house it was for us.
The area of Bokeelia and Alden pines is like stepping back in time where people have time for each other and are happy to stop for a chat. I have been to many places around the world and the absence of any form of crime or threat in this area is quite unbelievable.
We just love it.
The views over the lake from the sitting room whilst having breakfast are with us when we are back home in the cold, wet English winters (and sometimes summers).
Fantastic week, fantastic location, fantastic aspect, fantastic facilities, fantastic holiday. If you want the most relaxing of holidays then this is the place. A serene golf course viewable from the pool and balcony, a sizeable pool for a family of 5 and a 10 minute walk to the marina. Great restaurants to eat at and a boat to rent (unless you have your own) with the blue skies and sun shining we needed nothing else. We absolutely loved our week and thank Iain for allowing us to stay in his wonderful home.
Great pool and lanai! We loved the nearby golf course too!
This house was great. It had everything we needed, clean and really lovely location.
We loved the pool, the view, alligators and all. We saw all kinds in endangered and protected birds, fresh air, and sunshine. Spacious airy home, games for the teens, nice location, close to a lot, but feels far away, like another time.
We really had a lovely time! We wouldn't hesitate to book again.
The property was great. We'll maintained and furnished just right. Iain was quick to respond to every email I sent him, and the property manager was very polite. I would stay here again as well as recommend it to a friend.
Lovely golf community home....well appointed with everything there!!! Gorgeous views and an abundance of wildlife right there. We will be returning and are planning our next vacation. If you are looking for nature and lots of peace and quiet this is the rental for you!!!!
This lovely home exceeded my expectations! It is located on a beautiful small lake...I loved seeing the wildlife..the gator,who slowly swam by, the many varieties of birds, most especially, the incredible bald eagles! The house itself was immaculate and furnished delightfully...kitchen completely equipped...a toothbrush is all that you will need to bring!
The local manager is very responsive...and helpful with restaurant recommendations as well. Pine Is. is a hidden gem...less than one hour from the Ft. Myers airport yet retaining a tropical feel. There are several restaurants and cute art galleries on nearby Matlacha..Ft. Myers is a short hop for those days you just feel like a shopping excursion.
In short, I am booked for next winter and cannot wait! I know you will love it too!
Pine Island is a well kept secret and does not have the traffic jams and mass tourism of it's more famous neighbor Sanibel. The island is a mass producer of mango and palm trees so you can imagine it's beauty. If you are looking for a laid back vacation in the real Florida then Pine Island is for you. With only a 15 minute drive to Cape Coral and a further 15 minutes to Fort Myers you are never far away from the shops and restaurants, although Pine Island boasts some excellent restaurants and a variety of shops, including a supermarket of its own. Pine Island can best be described as tranquil and natural. The house is right on the beautiful Alden Pines tropical golf course, the golf club also has tennis courts available.
