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.

Owner's Response: Thank you for you review,

I am so glad you enjoyed your stay in "our paradise".

You sum it up perfectly and we pride ourselves on delivering a property that exceeds expectation.

Whilst we are on a golf community you will have seen we are not directly on the course so no stray balls (usually mine). I see you enjoyed the elevated views of the course across the small lake.

We look forward to welcoming you in the future.

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5
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!

This lovely florida home exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5
Every year we go to pine island to do some fishing and this year we were so pleased with the accomodations. The home was spacious, the furniture very comfortable and the beds were out of this world and the best part was home nicely appointed the kitchen was. We were able to do some fine dining right along with the everyday normal stuff. The outdoor area is huge and lots of wildlife.. Definitely a great family place and we are coming back again many times. thankyou Iain Massey

Great Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5
While we’ve explored other parts of Florida, this was our first visit to lovely Pine Island. You can feel the peace and tranquility as you cross the bridge at Matlacha. The island itself has one sizable grocery, one gas station, and a drug store. Who could need anything more?
The house itself is wonderful, and very user-friendly. The kitchen is well equipped, and a generous size. The beds were all comfortable. We had six of us, including our daughter, son-in-law, and our two teenaged grandchildren. There was room for all of us, to spread out, or to be together. Friends joined us for Christmas Dinner, we had no problem seating eight at the dining table, and the various sitting areas accommodated us all very nicely.
The delight was being able to enjoy the wildlife as we sat in the sitting room overlooking the peaceful pond behind the house. We saw an alligator, many osprey, and anhinga or cormorants drying their wings. One thrill was the bald eagle that flew in and perched on the bank opposite, checking out the fishing scene.
The four bikes were well used by us, after we added air. Our family, in ones, twos and threes, all enjoyed using the bikes to explore the many easy bike ways and quiet roads. We took advantage of the golf course, or maybe it took advantage of us.
On one day, we made the ferry trip to Cayo Costa (from just a few miles up the road) and had a very interesting day, including kayaking among a group of manatees.
Thanks for a great vacation! This was a great house for us and satisfied all our needs beautifully.

Beautiful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay in your beautiful home.The house had plenty of room for 6 and was well appointed. We stayed for two months and really enjoyed the location on Pine Island. The view from the windows over the lake was great with lots of wildlife.Even though the cool weather prevented us from using the pool ,the back patio was a great place to sun weather permitting.

Owner's Response: Great to hear you enjoyed your stay.

Like us you enjoyed the lovely views and the wildlife.

Even on a rare cool Florida day the sun terrace at the back will feel warm as it is a real suntrap.

Thanks for your review

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.
