Welcome to Backbay Hideaway!
If you are looking for a quiet retreat, you've found it. Relax, fish, read, hike, go shelling, or bird watching. Some of the best fishing in southwest Florida is in our backyard. Access to the Great Calusa Blueway (kayak trails) is within minutes. Fun local restaurants offering great music and local fare are minutes away (by bike or boat). Randall Research Center, Museum of the Islands, and our island library are great places to spend an afternoon. Matlacha with unique art galleries and some of the best ice cream you'll ever eat (at Great Licks) is only 10 minutes away. The Edison/Ford Winter Estate is nearby in Fort Myers, along with local theater and concert venues.

We spent a wonderful week here. Yes, it's a stationary mobile home, but everything is in good shape and kitchen has been completely remodeled with new cabinets, appliances, and flooring (into living room). Kitchen also comes equipped with nearly every tool you could imagine. You enter house through an additional enclosed porch-type area that offers comfortable, casual seating, a second table with chairs, and another TV (plus washer and dryer). Only disappointment was "cable" meant only basic cable, but for longer stays you can upgrade. Located nearly at the tip of St James City, it's a GREAT location if you bring your boat, plus it's quiet with no through traffic. And there are several restaurants/bars at that end of the island, including one that serves breakfast (Sunday breakfast is also served at the VFW -- check our their schedule of events). Owner lives nearby and was readily available when we needed assistance. I would recommend this property to friends and not hesitate to return.
