About Tracy

We are retired educators. Larry was a math teacher and Tracy was a high school principal. Tracy's parents introduced them to the island 25 years ago and they immediately fell in love with the local culture.

Tracy purchased this house in 2002

Why Tracy chose Saint James City

This house (not condo) is amazing! It has the capability of being whatever you want it to be! It is on a large quiet corner lot with plenty of room for your trailer if you want to bring your boat to launch from the on property boat lift. We have travelled across the world and still this is where we hope to retire. This represents true island life.

What makes this house unique

10,000 pound boat lift, heated pool, spa, large corner lot with room for your boat trailer. Minutes from san Carlos Bay and 10 minutes from Captiva and Sanibel by boat.

This house was awesome!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely perfect, it had everything you could ever imagine. Our boys went out in the gulf and caught over a hundred pounds of Cobia, Snapper, Grouper, Hog Fish, and Permit! The Blue Dog was a great place to eat as well as Berts and Woody's. The owners were super nice. What a great place to stay.

A lovely home away from home, great family rental

  • 5 of 5

The house was more than we could have predicted and anticipated. The pictures are good but don’t the justice it desires. I think the owners want the wow factor for those that rent as they step through the front door.

This was our 3rd time visiting with the family and this was by far the nicest place we have stayed. The location was perfect for us.

Our visit was with 5 people & 2 dogs staying the week. The house had everything we needed for a long week in Florida. Beach towels, kitchen items, you name it; everything you could possibly need was there. The house is great for a big family, we hosted nightly dinners for friends that live in St. James City. Everyone had private space for relaxing and the large screened patio and pool/hot tub area were used daily. Our friends thought the house was great too!

This is a beautiful house owned by very responsible owners. From the very 1st phone call to the owner, made it very easy to communicate and made the rental process was extremely easy.

When emailing the her, she also was prompt with the answers to our questions prior to arriving and during the stay. They do a terrific job with the upkeep of the property.

The neighborhood is nice and quiet and great for walking to Woody’s or to get bait at Monroe Canal Marina.

If you are looking for a beautiful home in a relaxing vacation, I would highly recommend this property. 5 star rating for sure!

Amazing experience!! We had such a great time, we are already planning our 2016 trip and staying here!!

Wonderful & Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year staying at this beautiful home in St. James City, Pine Island. If you really want an honest relaxing vacation this home and island is for you. The owners are wonderful to work with and the island itself is friendly and laid back. All you have to pack is: flip flops, tank tops and bathing suits, everything else is there for your convenience. The fishing is wonderful and just a short boat ride to Sanibel Island and Caya Costa State Park for beautiful beaches and Boca Grande Pass for snapper, grouper and if your lucky, a tarpon. We take our boat and dock right behind the house which is equipped with a fish cleaning table. The best part of the house is the outside pool area. The pool is wonderful, with a hot tub and a waterfall and for my teenager a tanning ledge. We will be there again next year. Can't wait!
