NELLIE'S NEST - 5 MIN TO OPEN WATER! FIVE STAR REVIEWS!

Pine Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)

Nellie’s Nest is named after the previous owner & long time Bokeelia creative personality, Miss Nellie. Now owned by her nephew, this home is cozy, well loved and beautifully remodeled. Reminders of Miss Nellie exist in her original art work, lush gardens, and historic memorabilia. The home is on a quiet, dead end street with water on both sides of the road & is 2 streets away from the public boat ramp. It is located on the northern tip of Pine Island, a mere 5 minutes to open water. Pine Island has a 15 mile long public bike path which runs the full length of the island but the real focus of this quaint fishing village is gorgeous Charlotte Harbor and the Gulf of Mexico, and fantastic fishing for all ages. Cayo Costa State Park can be reached by private boat or ferry. Boca Grande Pass is the location of annual tarpon tournaments every June and is a brief 20 minute run by boat. You have to drive through Matlacha to get to Bokeelia so you already appreciated all the art galleries and restaurants (including Great Licks with home made ice cream!). Sit by the dock and watch the mullet jump in the canal while the egrets, herons, and osprey go fishing!

Robert grew up in Bokeelia and after years away from 'home' was able to return to southwest Florida. He loves being back on the water & goes fishing on the boat every chance he gets!

Robert & Ellen purchased this house in 2007

This home was completely remodeled & updated after Hurricane Charley blew through in 2004. A lot of attention to detail was put into the renovation and it has been on the rental market since 2008. We now have guests returning for the 6th year in a row. Our guests rave about the location, the cleanliness, and how well appointed the house is - down to the wine bottle opener! Everything is on one level so there are no stairs to climb.

Outstanding salt water fishing - flats, inshore, & off shore; kayaking, sailing, boating, scuba diving. Tennis. Bike riding. Peace and quiet. Nature walks. Boat tours. Randell Research Center for Calusa Indian history & archeology. Bird watching. Shelling & swimming on barrier islands. Nature preserves. Sunset cruises on the Gulf. Mangoes, Key limes & other tropical fruit grown on the island. Museum of the Islands. Golf Course 2 miles away with 20+ other courses in the area. Many restaurants accessible by boat or car. The Great Calusa Blueway paddling trail in minutes. Marina nearby for boat rentals. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge on Sanibel. Edison Winter Estates in Fort Myers. Cheeseburger in Paradise?? No further than Cabbage Key!

Owner's Response: Thanks Alison for your review and comments - and more importantly, for your return trip to Nellie's Nest! We truly appreciate that our guests choose to come back year after year. I know you brought your boat but did you get the kayaks out on the water too? Robert replaced the seat in the red one in anticipation of your arrival :) You mentioned doing some shopping in Matlacha too - always a good spot for unique gifts on the island. Meanwhile...I'm back to Fruitscapes to buy more mangoes! Hope to see you again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your great review. We take pride in Nellie's Nest & that we consistently receive five star reviews from our guests. It is a great location for a group of six fishermen such as yourselves, or for a couple looking for a peaceful retreat. Summertime is great fishing in the beautiful waters of Charlotte Harbor & Pine Island Sound & we hope you are able to return soon.

GREAT LOCATION AND NO SURPRISES

  • 5 of 5
This property is wonderful - enjoyable and peaceful!! Our family loves being on the water and the location is perfect for fishing and boating! The home is very clean and well-stocked!! Loved having the boat in the canal behind the house and the grill for cooking up the fish! The ramp is very close by and waters are easy to navigate. We are hoping to come back again later this year!

I found the home very pleasant, clean, and comfortable. I enjoyed watching the boats come and go on the canal. The vegetation was lush and beautiful. I'd like to return.

HAD A WONDERFUL TIME - ALL ADVERTISED RENTAL HOUSE INFORMATION WAS CORRECT WITH NO SURPRISES.

  • 5 of 5
The house (Nellie's Nest) is very clean and organized with all the needed household items.
A boat ramp located two blocks away is excellent and waterway from the house to open water is short and easy to navigate.
Boat parking along the property seawall is perfect and you can park your trailer next to the house. Very convenient.
Property owners are great people and easy to deal with.
