About Justin Ray Domer

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

Justin Ray Domer purchased this house in 2013

Why Justin Ray Domer chose Saint James City

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.

Wonderful vacation home in St. James City

This home is everything promised by the owner and more. We have visited this home two different summers and we have been very pleased. The owner is very helpful and responds quickly. We can't say enough about this vacation home.

Quiet, Private & Comfortable ...

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd trip to this house & we love it! Had my boat on the lift behind the house, great pool and very private location. We spent most of the days on the water and came back to swim and relax in the pool and have a nice dinner looking out over Pine Island Sound. I cant say enough about the property it's just so comfortable and the owners have everything you need that you may not have brought with you. I'll be back again, love St James City and this house! If your looking for old Florida, laid back living this is the place to be.

This house was beautiful! Views from the master bedroom, master bathroom, and living room ate fantastic. The pool is heated and huge! The dock was an amazing experience. There was so much wildlife including sharks, stingrays, starfish, crabs, and fish. My husband and I fished off of the dock every day. We caught so many catfish every day! The kitchen includes everything that we needed.

The only problem I had with this house was the stairs. We brought 2 of our dogs with us. The only ways to get up and downstairs in through the front door, down the stairs, and around the house or a steep narrow spiral staircase that goes from the upstairs porch to the pool and porch downstairs. Our dogs could not walk up or down the spiral stair case so every time we wanted to bring them downstairs we had to go out the front door, outside, and walk around the house.

I'm still giving a 5 star review because we made it work (even in the Florida storms) Also, the woman who lives or stays next door walked in our backyard with her dogs a few times and did not clean up after them. We were wondering why there were already clues of dogs being there on our first day!

Overall, the house is beautiful and spacious. My husband and I had a wonderful vacation. The owner was very responsive and super easy to work with. Even though there were many details about the house listed on Home Away, he went above and beyond and sent is even more information about the house.

There is cable tv in the living room and the master bedroom. We didn't watch tv anywhere else so I'm not sure about the downstairs tv. There is Wi-Fi at the house but it does not work well throughout the entire house. I understand that that's not the owners fault because my internet at home does the same thing, so still 5 stars.

Thank you for providing us with an awesome space for my husband's and my honeymoon! Truly a great house! We loved the deck!!!

Amazing Home, Great Location, Spectacular Views!

  • 5 of 5

My family truly enjoyed our stay at this wonderful bay home! Everything about the home and location was perfect! We were able to keep our boat out back so we could fish any time of day. When we weren't boating and fishing, we were relaxing in the pool and hot tub. Our boys had the best vacation ever! We would love to vacation here again!

Great stay, great property

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice property with lots to offer to insure fun is had by all. The upstairs kitchen is wonderful and spacious. Preparing meals for my entire family was a pleasure. It had all the amenities including a wine fridge. The living room was very large and well equipped. The upper deck overlooking the pool had lots of room and gave a great view of the bay. The pool and spa we great and enjoyed by all. The entire property was clean, well maintained, and well supplied. Only a couple of points of constructive criticism: It would be nice for an additional ceiling fan down by the pool over the conversation area, in the down stairs apartment, drapes covering the sliding glass door to the pool would be nice for a little more privacy. These little items would just enhance an already wonderful property. All the member of my family agreed it was a nice vacation and I would very hardily recommend this home to anyone. The owner Justin was responsive, informative, and was a pleasure to work with. If your looking to get away and relax, this is a great option.

Great place! Great View!

  • 5 of 5

The house was excellent and well equipped. Thoroughly enjoyed the boat dock and pool. My only recommendation would be a propane grill for the guests.
