About Darlene Karl
Originally from Clarkston Michigan, I grew up enjoying the water where I once lived on a lake. Outdoor beauty is therapeutic for me as well and just important as indoor atmosphere. Light and cleanliness of an indoor space can bring me much satisfaction. I hope if you choose to stay you will see the beauty not only inside but also outside with the landscaping and night lighting...
Darlene Karl purchased this Cottage in 2000
Why Darlene Karl chose Bokeelia
Many recent updates and attention to detail, however still leaving the character of an old Florida cottage. This cottage was once a home of fishermen who would come out for weekend fishing tournaments and such and then later owned by a famous musician. Come enjoy and see what brought them out years ago!
What makes this Cottage unique

Beautiful area to explore for kayakers fishermen or just plain beach goers, with Boca, Cayo, Capitva, Cabbage Key, Useppa and many more area just mins away by boat!

A great place for a couple to stay! The home is perfectly decorated and immaculately clean. The plac
The place is charming with three separate spaces set up outdoors where I had the pleasure of watching 3 pleated woodpeckers frolicking in the trees.
The bed is king-sized and comfortable, the bedding perfect.
There are two wall units which were whisper quiet and cooled the home perfectly
The owners were very nice and easy to contact
I highly recommend this rental!

Comfy and clean, quiet, and super enjoyable.
My wife and I really enjoyed the cottage! This is a perfect place to enjoy Pine Island, Cayo Costa, kayak, and relax. We thought the cottage was perfect for us. Darlene was was very responsive to questions, and was very helpful to any request. After our daytime adventures, we would come back to the cottage and relax, listening to old vinyl records. We look forward to coming back.
I could’ve stayed a lifetime
Really enjoyed the cottage. Clean and inviting. Very comfortable Le with an interesting vibe. The landscaping was lovely. The perfect place to relax and Call home, even if on.y for a few short days! The interesting history of the home just added to the ambience. We even spun some records! Great having the records and record player! Direct tv was a bonus, we were able to catch a game. Nice location, a short walk to a marina. Short drive to some great waterfront restaurants like last flamingo (oysters), Tarpon Lodge, blue dog and miceli’s
Very nice cottage!
This property is updated, clean and cozy. Loved the decor and outside sitting area.
