WATERFRONT COTTAGE MINUTES TO PINE ISLAND SOUND

Pine Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Experience what old Florida was like. This adorable bright turquoise beach cottage is right on a canal, five minutes (idling) to Pine Island sound. The view from the back porch is straight down a beautiful canal lined with sailboats and coconut palms.

Fishing is excellent, even right from the dock. We have some fishing poles if you want to try it. The floors are tiled and the tiled, screened-in back porch has a ceiling fan. You can sit and sip Margaritas while you listen to the sounds of dolphin and manatees gliding past.

Pine Island is known for its music. Numerous local bands play everything from rock n roll to island rock to country. You can walk to the Waterfront restaurant in about 2 minutes and enjoy great seafood and lots of local atmosphere.

Many kayak routes are close by and the area is very popular with kayakers and nature lovers.

We bought this house in 2001. It was built in 1958 and we basically gutted it and started from scratch. When we reached the bottom layer of paint it was turquoise so we decided to paint the 'new' house the same color. Everything was updated to current building codes. We added a dock and boat lift and had the seawall redone (2008).

Thom Kuhns or Kathy Kuhns purchased this cottage in 2001

Kathy is a Florida native and Thom has been here most of his life. We love the water and really never dreamed that we would be able to have a house on the water. We get there every chance we can and plan to retire there in a few years so you should enjoy our rental while you can!

Even though it is close to the city of Cape Coral you feel that you are way out on an island. Our house is at the very tip of St. James City (southernmost). At night you hear the sounds of the water and really feel like you are on a deserted island. The fishing is fantastic. If you go out in the morning it is so easy to just come back in for lunch and a nap and go right back out on the boat. Our friends love to come with us for weekends of fishing, music, good times.

Thank you for sharing your island cottage with us. It was clean cozy and well stocked. Sitting on the porch watching the manatees and dolphins was a real treat! The wall mural your daughters painted was amazing. The island décor was perfect for your tropical getaway. We hope to return soon!

PIECE OF HEAVEN!

  • 5 of 5
My husband & I came down to St. James City to look at some properties we were wanting to purchase for our retirement home. I didn't want to leave this cottage, it was so comfy and peaceful! We did find a place but spent our mornings and evenings on the screen porch watching the birds and fish jump! We saw manatees and dolphins too. Just couldn't have been a better place to stay. I am so glad I found this cottage online. Last trip we stayed in motel; this was 100 times better!
Everything we needed was there; just can't say enough about how nice it was being there!
I can't think of anything other than GREAT things to say about our stay there!!

SPECIAL !!

  • 5 of 5
When you walk thru the front door and look out the back onto the canals, all tension and stress leaves you're body. I've never had a more relaxing time away from home.
Beautifully kept , clean ,comfortable, and functional. You supply the food and drink, everything else is there.
Owners were always available to help if needed. Just one small refusal ,Thom won't lend his boat out to renters. Unbelievable!! lol . Well you can't have it all.
I'll be back in November, can't wait. JAY, Buffalo,NY.

EXCELLENT PLACE TO STAY!

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriend and I spent a week here and it was great! Thom was easy to work with and everything was just the way he said it would be. The house is very clean and the location is by far the best on the island. Not to mention that the boat lift makes life easy! Thank you and we look forward to coming back.
