Highly recommend!

This was the perfect place to have a family getaway. We had the pleasure of seeing multiple manatees plus a baby manatee during our stay from the dock and balcony. House is very well kept, clean, and the decor is perfect down to the smallest of details. We loved the river, fishing, and heading to Pine Island beach/playground daily. Last but not least you must try Becky Jack's isn't much to look at but the food is delicious! Thank you, thank you, thank you! We cannot wait to come back to this home away from home again!

Well maintained and great location.

The house was in good shape and had everything we needed. We had a great time kayaking and seeing manatees on the river. The kids enjoyed the mermaid show too.

Our family can't wait to return.

Peaceful place to unwind

  • 5 of 5

What a neat place to stay! Everything was perfect!

This is true "Old Florida" at its best. Away from the hustle and bustle

Really enjoyed the river and Hospital Hole. What a magical place. Saw lots of manatee and calves.

The kayaks and canoe are a big plus. Would definitely return!!!

We had a great time kayaking, kicking back and relaxing. Great spot close to everything. Would stay again. Owner even invited us to stay while our power was out during the hurricane.

This trip is our annual family vacation for my birthday weekend and Labor Day holiday. We have tried a couple places before but, this is off the beaten path in just the right way! Not on the main canal so, not too much traffic but, so close you are out to the ocean in just 5 minutes. Owners thought of everything! Kayaks, canoeing, places for your own boat, gas fire pit, wifi (most important with a 9 year old!), games, electronics, kitchen appliances, washer & dryer.... I could keep going on and on... I am an over planner but, you could just show up here with food, clothes, and a boat and wing it with all the owner has to offer! Our family enjoyed it and has many lasting memories on video to prove it! Lol
