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

Upscale interior with old Florida look and comforts. High end a/c both quiet and includes heat. Location is unbelievable with just a monents walk to fresh seafood market and boat launch! 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

  • 5 of 5

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!
