Guestbook comments from the owner

Pine Island was absolutely a paradise. So remote and yet, everything you need within a 10 minute drive. Deep sea fishing..fun!! The sunsets from the upper deck were the best we have ever seen. The house was very comfortable, the most romantic get away. (copied from our guest book)

The perfect quiet vacation retreat!

  • 5 of 5

I was so impressed when we first walked into the door, with the spacious living room, kitchen, dining room and pool table. Two huge decks over looking the Gulf of Mexico. This house is on stilts so there is plenty of covered parking underneath the house. The master bedroom is breathtaking with a view of the west in the sunset. The beach only a few minutes walk away, access to the water is 30 seconds away. You're an hours drive maximum too many tourist attractions and springs. The best one we went to was 30 minutes away which was HomoSassa Springs. If your people that don't like tourists and noise this is the perfect place to stay. I am definitely coming back.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

The property was just as described. Perfect for a three generation vacation. The pool table was an excellent distraction for the one rainy day. Very easy walk to the small park/beach at the end of the island. Would definitely recommend to others.

Amazing home with perfect views!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Florida for a family wedding! We spent 4 nights in the stunning house! We had everything we needed! The beach is right there! We spent a day at the public beach and had lunch at Willy's! So much fun! My sister booked a home as well and we were neighbors! It was perfect!

Great getaway! Comfortable, beautiful, well appointed.

  • 5 of 5

The property provides a beautiful environment to relax and enjoy the natural beauty that is Florida. We felt at "home" in this very well maintained and provisioned property. Plenty of room but feels cozy even with two occupants. Great gathering spots for a group or plenty of areas for reflection, reading, talking,"wining" or whatever. Location is away from businesses but easy to get to for any supplies needed. The only caution: the two lane road will have standing water if it rains at high tide. Few inches of water but easy to negotiate. Absolutely planning a return visit. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for having come to our island getaway. We hope to see you back. In regards of the high water, the hurricane in the Gulf caused a super high tide and water came up on the road. Not a typical event in the island. Anyhow, thanks again for your kind comments and are so glad you enjoyed your stay.

8 friends met up to share this stunning home for four days and we had an AWESOME visit each day!

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful home! Lots of clean, well lit, easily accessible storage space in the "stilt area" for your kayaks and boat and salt water gear. A sink station under there for cleaning fish or scallops would be a great addition. We cleaned our fresh catch into buckets and coolers and then hauled the remains all the way to the water during low tide - quite a job but the fish tacos made it well worth the labor. The 8 of us walked the short distance to Pine Island park to enjoy the tiny cute beach where there is a great playground and volleyball court. The kitchen is stocked with everything you could need to prepare all your favorite meals. Our families (8 people) enjoyed dinner and then card games at the very large dining table. We also enjoyed teaching our 10 and 13 year olds how to play pool on the beautiful pool table while listening to the stereo and watching the sunset during happy hour. What a gorgeous view! The living room was cozy so we watched movies a couple of nights after showering off the sun and salt in four very nice full baths. Overall, we had a happy relaxing enjoyable vacation in this beautiful home! There ARE LOTS of stairs, which made us feel like we were getting a work out to combat all the vacation snacking we did! We will keep this place in mind for a future stay, and will let others know about it. Thank you for offering such a nice place for our families to reunite!
