About Justin Ray Domer

We are a native Floridian family who live and work in Okeechobee and Tallahassee, Florida when we are not enjoying our home on Pine Island.

Justin Ray Domer purchased this house in 2013

Why Justin Ray Domer chose Pine Island

We have been visiting Pine Island for over fifteen years because of it's natural rural beauty and of course the fishing. We fell in love with the feel of this home and the property it is on as soon as we set foot on it; it felt like home and we hope you feel the same way.

Fantastic house

  • 4 of 5

Fantastic views from a wonderful house. A very well equipped house (apart from the paddles for the kayaks which were locked away, we could have hired some but the moment had passed). Justin very helpful and quick to answer emails. The only downside is that our check out time was 11.00am and the cleaners arrived at 9.50am and insisted we should have been out by 10.00am. My daughter answered the door and was told "we thought you would have gone by now" which resulted in me having to log on to the website to prove that our departure time was 11.00am. My daughter, her husband and baby quickly moved all their belongings from the downstairs to the upstairs so that the cleaners could work in that part of the house, the cleaners clearly were not leaving as they were waiting in their car in the drive way. This resulted in a very rushed breakfast and not being able to do everything we wanted to do, including putting back the pool inflatables into the cupboard. This was very upsetting and spoilt the end of a very good holiday.

Lovely stay in a beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

The owner, Justin was helpful and accommodating with quick response and just a really friendly person.

The house was beautiful and equipped with everything that we needed to enjoy a 2 week stay. We watched the sun rise in the morning, dolphin swim by in the afternoon and spent lots of time in the heated pool. My family enjoyed this trip and this house.

My only suggestions would be that I enjoy watching tv from bed with my husband and there was no cable in the master bedroom.

The towels could be more luxurious and more of them.

Fantastic Home - Best Vacation - Wonderful & Relax

  • 5 of 5

This has been the best vacations we have ever had & it had to do with your home! It is a fabulous home–comfortable, well laid out, the kitchen was fantastic with oversized drawers , deep sink, lots of bells & whistles, the pool & spa couldn’t have been better, having the dock right there to have our 3 wave runners was icing on the cake! Only wish we would have booked for 2 wks. This was a celebration for our son who graduated from high school – Central Fla Aerospace Academy. So with 3 of his graduating class he had the downstairs which was perfect for them with the living room they all set up computer monitors and their x-boxes for gaming and had their own bedroom with air mattress for sleeping & bathroom. While upstairs was food central with me cooking all meals for the week as promised is where I, hubby, our daughter, and our furry daughter lived for the week. At night everyone gathered to play card games. Fireworks on the 4th of July were wonderful! On the last night we all wrote wishes on ‘wish lanterns’ and then set them off over the water from the dock–it was a sight to see. Hoping next year we are able to book 2 wks at this home even if it is just for us four and our furry girls as this was such a wonderful time and so comfortable and relaxing! Only improvements that could be completed the grill we did try to use and we even filled up the gas for the next guests but only 2 burners work and it is extremely dirty (we just covered the grates we foil before cooking), the main table is fantastic to play cards but the squeaking is awful (you can’t talk over it much less think), need to replace and have cable in the bedroom (just not acceptable in 2015), the spiral stairs need (a real easy fix) stick down rubber so they are not slippery as 3 of us did fall down the last 3-4 steps several times as they do get wet and then they are dangerous. We purchased for $62 from Wal-Mart on our way into Pine Island Kayak paddles so that we did not have to travel back out in the event they ‘walked-off’ to use in the Kayaks stated that were on property–please note these Kayaks on property would only be able to fit extremely small and thin stick people the smallest boy we had is approx. 110 pds 5’8” and no way he was fitting into either of the closed Kayaks. Paddles I purchased will be returned to Wal-Mart. Our family loved this home and we had a great time-I am really picky and OCD so for me to relax and say this about another person’s home AAA+++. Thank You!!

We didn't' want to leave!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Great House, Great location both land and water!!!! One of our best spring break trips ever!! Can't say enough about the house, it was an awesome set up for us! 3 teenagers and 2 adults. Trailered my little boat 18' Scout from VA, waters very navigable, and the lift worked perfect! Endless supply of finger mullet off the dock for bait! On the boat everyday, trips to sanibel and our favorite spot Cayo Costa, uninhabited beach! After a long day on the water we returned home for afternoon swim in their Awesome Screened in pool! Sunset drift along the mangroves and dinner by boat at Woody's!! The setting is great the house is set up so well, owner had ample spices in the kitchen which was nice to have. We will be back

So relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect week of relaxation. We had 4 generations at the house and it suited everyone! My dad, my husband and my son fished, while kids played in pool, and me and my mother relaxed in the hot tub. Love the screened in patio area. We grilled every night and with the fish house next door we were able to walk over and get the freshest clams for grill, as well as, bait for fishing. We saw sea life everyday from the back dock, manatee, dolphins, shark, manta-ray, etc. my only comment of improvement would be the safety of spiral stairs. With kids in and out of pool and up and down stairs, they got really slick and my adult son as well as my 5 yr old both slipped down stairs within the first hour of being there. Maybe if a non-slip adhesive were applied to each step the safety could be greatly improved. That was literally the only stress I had all week (making sure nobody slipped). Overall, exactly what we were looking for!!! Thank you Justin for your top notch treatment of your guests!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your kind words about our home on Pine Island, we hope that we can have you and your family back soon! I will be sure to address the issue with the slippery stairs. I apologize for that inconvenience but I greatly appreciate you letting me know. Thanks again!
