This is a beautiful and traditional Florida stilt home, with elevated view for your ideal vacation on undeveloped Pine Island. The lakeside house is the pride and joy of it's English owners and is their own vacation home. It has been completely refurbished to a high standard with top quality modern furnishings with the accent on luxury and an attention to detail. The house has clean lines without clutter. We have a beautiful private pool and sun deck with uninterrupted views of the lake. You will wake up to stunning views of the lake and golf course, with the ocean only a short walk away.
We have numerous fruit trees for you to sample including, Mango, lime,papaya and coconut.
The tropical golf course of Alden pines is available to you, if boating is more for you then you are within minutes of 4 marinas where you can catch a boat to the surrounding islands' unspoiled beaches, or you may want to get back to nature and take a bike ride on the quiet roads or go fishing in the ocean or the lake right in front on the house.
We are an English family who live in Manchester in the north of England. We have been visiting Florida for more than 20 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 (and sometimes summers).
We love the location of this home as it close to our favorite beaches. We loved returning to the peace and quiet after a day out sightseeing. The pool is wonderful with a view of the lake, we enjoyed many beautiful sunsets.
The island is great with lots of shops and restaurants. You will not want to miss the ferry to Cayo Costa and Cabbage Key. Owners are very helpful and have included everything you would need.
Wonderful area; perfect place for golfers, fishing, biking, running, taking short walks, and relaxing. Home is perfect for family get togethers. Grocery stores and restaurants are nearby. Highly recommend renting this beautiful home!!
Myself, my husband and 4 of our friends enjoyed this Bokellia vacation home for 2 nights. The owner was very responsive to all my emails/questions. The home has plenty of room. There was a little feedback I gave the owner after we returned home but nothing major. The house is in a nice quiet neighborhood and the views from the back room were wonderful. We saw a lot of wildlife each day and loved the relaxing pool and screen porch. I would definitely recommend the vacation home to others.
We spent the Memorial day weekend, relaxing at this lovely property. The area is quiet and full of wildlife, close to restaurants, boat ramps, and beaches. The home is nicely appointed, very comfortable and has a lovely pool. We had a great time
Our second stay at this property and we will always comeback when we are in the area. Quite street, safe location and very comfortable amenities. Owners are very responsive.
We enjoyed our time at the house and everything the surrounding area had to offer. The house exceeded all expectations and we found it so lovely, clean and well kept. The layout is great too - my husband and our 2 kids stayed in one half and extended family had the master bedroom on the other side. We all had privacy and it was very quiet. The pool and lanai are great and so is the tranquil neighbourhood. When we walked our dogs everyone was so friendly. We did day trips to Sanibel and Captiva islands as well as Anna Maria island and the ferry ride to Cayo Costa that we highly recommend. Many of the islands were very busy over the holidays so it was nice returning to Pine Island where there is no hustle and bustle and life is easy and laid back. We also enjoyed going into neighbouring Matlacha where you could purchase fresh fish and look at many art galleries and shops. Iain was very helpful and answered all of our questions promptly. We look forward to visiting again soon!
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.
