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 15 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.
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.
