About Tom & Linda Farmer

I'm a retired Maintenance Supervisor from Kraft Foods, Nabisco in Fair Lawn NJ. My wife is an accountant. We live here full time

Tom & Linda Farmer purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Tom & Linda Farmer chose Saint James City

Our spot is spectacular with sunrises and sunsets. Great fishing at your fingertips all year long. You can see Sanibel across the sound from the porch or the little beach at the end of the street. We love the fabulous weather and the breezes we get from the water.

What makes this apartment unique

From the living room you feel like you are in the treetops with views of the sound. Its peaceful and relaxing either by the pool, sitting on the dock or in the hammock. It's a small piece of paradise.

Clean and comfortable accommodations

Very comfortable and clean accommodations. The fully screened in pool is very large and is heated with lounge chairs and pool floats available. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals. Lots of restaurants close by. Large screened in porch. Great neighborhood. The hosts are very welcoming and make you feel right at home.

Wonderful accomodations!

  • 5 of 5

So very glad to have found this place on Pine Island to rent for the month of April. Spacious, comfortable, everything we needed for our home away from home. The property was lovely, with the canal and dock, numerous beautiful palms, and just across the street, a small beach with a great view of the bay. A good place to walk or ride bikes - and my husband loved the fishing! Restaurants and bars close by. A special treat was going to Bookelia to have dinner at Red's - give it a try. Our hosts, Linda and Tom, were such nice, friendly, helpful people. A joy to be around. Thank you for everything.

Amazing Tree Top Retreat

  • 5 of 5

I could not have asked for a better place to enjoy Pine Island from. This gorgeous one bedroom had everything a person could think of wanting. It is so tastefully decorated that it truly feels like a home not just a rental unit.

The oversize pool was always deliciously warm whether taking an early morning swim or a late night dip. As an added feature it had easy walk-in access and was very deep making it perfect for water exercise. There is lots of opportunity for exercise without effort while living here. The grounds are well landscaped with benches for lounging and the boat dock also had seating to hang out and watch the boats and manatee go by. One of the small Pine Island beach areas is only steps away along with numerous restaurants and pubs. The area is very charming.

If walking or swimming isn't your thing there are bikes available for riding. Or if you want to just drink in the view there is a front porch with comfortable furnishings or a screened deck where the living room wall disappears so it feels like you are living in the treetops. The living room deck was my favorite place to sit and answer emails using the speedy wireless internet. Each room has a beautiful large ceiling fan so I preferred to use them instead of the AC and keep the wall open. There are also plenty of large windows that opened easily and created a gentle breeze.

The kitchen is well stocked. Fridge has an ice maker. The flat screen TV has hundreds of channels of shows and even more of music. There are lots of books to curl up with. The host had though of everything to welcome me including a cold pitcher of water and frosted mugs.

The host are kind and friendly and were available for any enquiries or help but were completely unobtrusive. It was perfect for me travelling alone to be on my own but also have the security of someone close by if needed.

All of the guests that came to visit me were blown away at how perfect this home was. I hope to return someday.

Palm Tree House Lover

  • 5 of 5

Best place I've seen on this Island ! Comfortable and quaint iiving conditions. Great location for fishing, walking, and a great little bar & restaurant nearby. Public access to view the bay just on the corner, and room for your fishing boat. Very adequate cooking facilities and great views of this wonderful neighborhood through the palm trees that surround the house. Excellant hosts and very accommodating. Great expansive heated pool. We plan on returning !

Car: recommended

St. James City is the southernmost point of Pine Island (in Lee County) and is the largest island (17 miles long and 2 miles wide) on the west coast of Florida, just 15-20 minutes from Cape Coral, 30 minutes from Ft. Myers and one hour from Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW).

Pine Island is home to thousands of ospreys and has a secluded, quaint and 'country waterfront' atmosphere. Fringed with mangroves rather than white sand beaches, Pine Island has escaped the concrete, blacktop and skyscrapers found in the more touristy, beachy communities. Current legislation prohibits high density, high-rise development in the foreseeable future . . . designed to preserve our unique, rural island heritage for generations to come.
