About Ellen Larson
I am a freelance writer and editor who understands the desire to travel. I have been around the world in my day, and lived for three years in England and for fifteen years in Egypt. In summer I live in an off-grid cabin in upstate New York. In winter, I live on Pine Island, now in my nice house in Bokeelia. I keep the cottage open throughout the winter for my sister, Susie, and for other guests. In the off season I rent out the cottage at low cost to responsible travelers.
Ellen Larson purchased this Mobile Home in 2014
Why Ellen Larson chose Bokeelia
I bought this property in the fall of 2014, but I had my eye on it for almost ten years, because I wanted to rent the cottage myself. I fell in love with the yard, from the magnificent Bismarck Palm to the fragrant gardenia bush. I love to garden, so I have planted citrus trees and a seagrape hedge, which will, over time, provide even more privacy. The main house, Seagrape Escape, is older, and was originally a park model trailer. Over time, rooms have been added to it, so that today it appears as a rambling two bedroom house with strangely low ceilings. Susie's Old Florida Cotagge is the ideal getaway: Sweet as can be, with all the essentials, and capital P Privacy.
What makes this Mobile Home unique
There are plenty of vacation rentals in Greater Pine Island, including on quaint Matlacha. Seagrape Escape is noteworthy for its delightful garden, roominess, and casual atmosphere.The furnishings are more low-key that traditional motels, but still nice, and typical of Florida traditions. But most of all, the prices can't be beat!

Colorful, clean, cozy and full of character. Great kitchen.....cabin amenities,
not perfect , but workable and comfortable. Yard is fun...screened porch.
Seagrape escape is the perfect home away from home!
This home had everything we needed to be comfortable in the two months we stayed. Ellen was a super gracious host and helped us every step of the way. The home was just as espected from the listing. Pine island is a quiet beautiful island that had everything we needed for our stay. I would gladly stay there again and again and recommend it to anyone.
Seagrape Escape is located a mile from "The Center," where you will find tennis courts, a swimming pool (for a small fee), a library, and a sweet museum. Just north of the Center is Little LIlly's Island Deli, where you'll enjoy lunch and a great selection of deli foods to take home. Winn Dixie and CVS are half a mile south of the Center. And no guide to Pine Island is complete without a mention of Matlacha, the funky little town full of colorful art galleries and gift shops. There's also a post office, an ice cream shop, Le's Chinese Cuisine, and the Chocolate Factory. What more do you need?
