About the property

A Lovely Home And A Lifestyle That Can't Be Beat. Stay Busy Or Just Lay Back.

The home is kept to very high standards of comfort and cleanliness. The floors are tiled in every room and sanitized before your arrival. There is no wondering if carpets were cleaned or sanitary here!!! Pine Island is known for World Class Tarpon Tournaments and has the greatest fishing. This guest rental has boat lift for small boat and good fishing right at your dock. You will enjoy the expanse of water looking down a long canal. Hopefully you will enjoy a breathtaking moment if you see the dolphins come into feed right beside your dock. And it is always a tremendous joy when they come in. You can also see them more often (Dolphins and manatees) at the end of the street. just a few blocks down. A great place to bank fish and watch the ospreys, herons and egrets fly over. There are Eagles with permanent nesting areas on the Island. The area is simply a wonderful birding place. There are Waterfront restaurants quickly accessible by car, boat or bicycle. Woody's is a favorite with an open airy outdoor setting. Great food and wonderful margaritas too. At the opposite end of the Island is a real nice fishing pier across from the Captain Con's Restaurant, a lovely diner serving great food at reasonable prices in a very casual setting. You can rent boats or kayaks locally or set out with a charter boat for 1/2 or full day fishing. There is Cayo Costa State Park nearby by boat with beautiful sandy beaches, the Tropic Star Ferry boat to get you there daily. There are many other islands nearby, some accessible only by boat. Cape Coral Yacht Club has a small but nice beach and restaurant approx 30 miles by car. Sanibel Island in the top 3 in the world for shelling, and Ft Myers Beach with miles of beach, approx 40 miles by car or 10 miles by boat. There are Bikes and a old canoe available for your use.

About Kay Haering

I have lived in the SW Florida area, since 1989. I can never get enough of the outdoor nature places. Many times I will be out with my Jeep and my camera, I will see a dirt road and I am off to explore. To see the dolphins and birds brings incredible joy to me. The time I spend at my Pine Island Guest unit is pure serenity. Even while I am working to get the home ready to be occupied. It is a refreshing joy to be at the home- anytime.

Kay Haering purchased this mobile home in 2010

Why Kay Haering chose Saint James City

This is a very loved and cared for home. You are so close to waterfront restaurants, Bike, Boat or Drive there. You can bring your boat or rent a boat to access prime fishing. You can fish from your dock or from the bank at the end of the street. You can sit on the large patio and doing nothing but watch the birds and listen to their soothing sounds. This home is my pride and I am told it is one of the nicest rentals on the island by my local handyman.

What makes this mobile home unique

So quick to get out to open water or float gently inside mangrove areas to watch the birds or catch that big fish to fry. There is a private dock with lift and fish cleaning station. Right near your back door.

Thanksgiving at Fisherman's Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We have nothing but great things to say about this wonderful home. It is perfectly set up for indoor/outdoor living and entertaining. The living space opens with big sliders out to the spacious and comfortable screened porch. The dock and boat lift are just outside the door on the picturesque canal. The house is fully equipped with everything; especially the kitchen. It was perfectly set up for our family plus the extra visitors we had for Thanksgiving. There is a ample driveway, plenty of parking, bicycles for guests use and a canoe. Everything is kept in pristine condition. Loved the visits from Mooch and Wimpy the Egrets!

Wonderful, relaxing excursion

  • 5 of 5

We thank the owner for a great time away from the hustle and bustle of life. We had a very relaxing stay and enjoyed this immaculate home. Everything we needed was provided. We rented a boat for the week and put it up on the lift each evening when we returned from our boating excursions. This home is on the end of a canal, and the sunsets were amazing! Boated to Upper Captiva and Cayo Costa islands several times and had the beaches to ourselves. Caught lots of fish and found lots of shells. Very happy we stayed here!

Great experience at Fishermans Pararise

  • 5 of 5

The property was spotless and the owner had provided all the things that made this an incrediable holiday. It is a quite location to relax and enjoy the water view. The screen in porch was one of the favorite places where we had all our meals overlooking the water view. Pine Island is a great place to explore nature and this location is close to restaurants and a shopping center is only a short drive away. The owner was very helpful with informing guest about Pine Island and how you could feed the various birds that come to the property each day. A great place to vacation.

Owner's Response: Wayne B. and his Family- were just a total delight. And I would love to Host their stay again. If it wasn't for the linens so neatly folded in the hamper. You would never have known they even used the home. Such meticulous, and extremely kind guests. I feel Blessed to have shared my home with such Great Folks!

Watch for dolphins in your canal. Fish from backyard. At end of street is a great bank fishing spot to fish, watch for dolphins and manatees. By Bike, boat or car, area restaurants have open patio areas to sip margaritas and have lunch or dinner. There is the VFW posts nearby for great food and music. There is the Moose Lodge for dining. There is the Marina nearby to rent boats or launch a boat. Matlache about 12 miles to rent Kayaks. Bokeelia at the opposite end of the Island has a great pier for fishing and Con's Restaurant serving delicious fish sandwiches and other foods. The Tropic Star- a local ferry goes to Caya Costa State Park, a wonderful beach accessible only by boat. There are day fishing charters in the area. If you rent a boat or bring your boat, you will find many islands nearby. It is an Island of endless exploration! Boat Lift and dock included for your boat.
