Charming Getaway

5 of 5
We loved this place! The owner's have named it "Tarpon Camp" and by the looks of it they use it for their own getaways. We will likely rent it again when we can bring our boat. It is a great escape especially for Floridian's who want a little bit of old Florida away from the tourist crowds. No "scripted" vacations here. It is immaculately clean, everything is fresh and well decorated. The house, though built in the 1950's is freshened up and extremely comfortable, new A/C, Flat screen TV's, Cable and well-kept lawn. Ton's of towels and extra blankets. It is on a canal with access to Jug Creek (Bayou) and across from Calusa Island and a pass into Charlotte Harbor. Convenient boating access to Boca Grande, Cayo Costa, Cabbage Key, North Captiva, Useppa islands. If you have no boat there is a nearby marina with a shuttle to Cayo Costa, an untouched island with natural wild beaches. The home is also equipped with lawn chairs, large cooler, nice kayaks, fish cleaning station, kitchen utensils, washer and dryer, and a rare find for a rental holiday home... a powered boat lift on the canal out back. Launching the Kayaks from the canal sea wall can be challenging, as an option there is a nice gently sloping put-in between the Mangroves at the north end of the street. There are dining options in Bokeelia including the Lazy Flamingo inside the Four Winds Marina, and others on Pine Island including Woody's, The Low Key Tiki, and Ragged Ass Saloon in St. James City on the south of the island, not to mention dining and shopping options in Matlacha. For night life, there is a sort of Honky Tonk in St. James City named Froggy's. On the night we were there it was a great friendly crowd of all ages, a fantastic live band, and lively games of pool were enjoyed. We loved exploring the island by car and Kayak. Looking forward to exploring by boat on the next trip.
