I’ve stayed in Fort Myers plenty of times but I’ve never been to Saint James, all I can say is WOW! I’ve been missing out for a long time, the small city is wonderful! Lots of great restaurants, beautiful views, and very friendly people! Thomas was a great host and his house was perfect. The dock was used heavily during the trip and kept my 22’ boat very safe. I’m looking forward to going back!

Wonderful quiet retreat on the water

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week. Even though we didn't bring our boat and couldn't fish this trip, due to my recovering from a cracked forearm bone, we had a marvelous time. The newly-renovated master bedroom and bathroom are very nice, though it gets rather warm at that end of the house. We were there in mid-October, when the sun comes in from the south rather strongly. The quiet vertical fan alleviates a lot of the heat, however. The new mattress may be a bit too firm for some tastes, but is far better than one that's too soft. The new bedroom and bathroom furnishings are lovely, and the step-in shower is great. Love the pale blue walls, and the new flooring, too. The kitchen is well stocked with pots and pans, dishes, and glassware. If you need to fill an ice chest, the ice maker is an added bonus.

We enjoyed taking long walks, and watching the shore birds, and even saw a dolphin and a manatee in the canal. There was also a young osprey who sat on the light pole at the end of the dock every night. He must have been recently left on his own. He sat and called plaintively, like he was expecting Mom or Dad to come bring him a fish. He eventually figured things out and flew away, but stayed in the area.

A good place to use the boat or just hang out

  • 4 of 5

The house is very nice, plenty of room for 4 with the 2/2 split plan. The only drawback is the limited parking, just enough for one vehicle and a boat trailer, or 2 vehicles. The new dock and the boat lift are super. The Internet service was good. Having a bigger icemaker than just one in the fridge is a real plus. We certainly want to come back. Had a great time in spite of the almost daily thundershowers. Fishing was slow, but enough to bring some home as well as eating them there.

West coast "Keys"!

  • 5 of 5

What a great spot for fishing, boating & just getting away from it all.

The home was equipped with absolutely everything you would need, just bring your own food/drink and you are set. Dock is perfect for bringing your own boat, ramp is within 5 minutes of house.

Strongly recommend this for anyone interested in a leisurely vacation, many great spots in Saint James to eat and relax.

Awesome Rest & Relaxation Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our second time at this vacation home and we will be back! Owner very easy to work with. The home has everything you need. Stay home to eat, grill on back patio or visit one of many restaurants on Pine Island. Games for the family, books to read, on a canal with direct access to the bay, river and gulf, as well as, Sanibel & Captiva Islands. We had a wonderful treat of a mother manatee & her baby playing right off the boat dock! A great place to rest & relax. The boat dock is in great condition, so if you like to fish or just pleasure boat, feel comfortable to tie up your own boat at this dock. Fishing was great for us. My husband caught his largest snook ever! We did a catch & release...maybe you can catch him on your visit here!
