Unique 2 bedroom 2 full bath stilt home with a tiki ambiance on a canal minutes to restaurants, Pine island sound, great fishing, lots manatees and dolphins, biking, hiking, art galleries, grilling, or just relaxing barefoot on the tiki screened in deck or paver patio enjoying all the boats passing by. There are biking and hiking trails throughout the island and lots of other things to do on the island and in SW Florida. For experienced boaters we do rent a 2014 Hurricane Deck boat for $200/day.

The space

On the infamous monroe canal with lots of happy boaters idling by while you relax on the wraparound screened in tiki deck or right next to the waters on the paver patio. Unforgettable kayaking to the various keys nearby and catch fish or see all the sea birds roosting at dusk(simply incredible!)
Restaurants and biking/ hiking trails are nearby. The matlacha art galleries and Edison home are unique and quite interesting. Pine Island is a nature lover's paradise with great authentic seafood restaurants and exotic fruit stands! This is not a beach island with all the traffic, condos, and crowds. It's a mangrove lined island with tons of dolphins, manatees, fish, and birds. SSHHHHH! Don't tell too many people about our special island!

Guest access

2 single ocean kayaks: Wilderness Systems Tarpon 160i and a fishing kayak: ocean Kayak Prowler, 4 mountain bikes, gas grill, fishing rods and reels.

When we arrived and met Charles he told us that 2 days wasn't enough. He was right! We had a great time, the accommodations fit our family of 4 and 2 dogs perfectly. It was clean and had everything we needed. The boating was fantastic and Charles was helpful, friendly and our stay was beyond our expectations. His recommendations of good seafood was spot on with Blue Dog Bar and Grill. Some of the best seafood we've had and very affordable. Ended up there twice it was so good! If you are a healthy eater (vegetarian) for breakfast, bring your own food, there aren't any choices nearby except the Rugged Ass Saloon and the menu lacked anything close to a healthy choice. Definitely a place to visit again and will choose Charles's house for sure!

Had a great time. Quiet and relaxing on Pine Island and this place has a wonderful set up. Perfect for two couples or a small family. This place has more than ample amenities and Charles is very accommodating. Would definitely stay again.

Staying at Charlie's home really was a great escape from reality! The home was beautifully decorated and furnished, very comfortable. We spent so much time out on the boat and on the tiki style patio. It was certainly a relaxing weekend. We felt right at home. With so many amenities and personal touches, we never wanted to leave. I definitely recommend renting his boat while you enjoy your stay because it really made the trip so amazing. Charlie is a great host and answered all of our questions throughout our stay immediately and was very accommodating to a few special requests that we had. If you have a chance to stay in his home I highly recommend it!! We will be back!

Charles is such a great host. We used his boat and had so much fun going to probate islands and lunch on cabbage key. The house was perfect for relaxing and eating good food with friends. The fish market nearby had great fresh fish! Be sure to bring bug spray!!!

Response from Charles:
Thanks Katya! I'm glad to hear you enjoyed renting our Hurricane Deck boat. Because we are near mangroves, there can be noseeum bugs around dusk when there is no breeze so be prepared with bug spray just in case!

A quiet and relaxing paradise! Was perfekt for us, travelling with two boys (15 and 13 years old). A trip with the bikes, kayaking and a day trip with the boat did their days here (and their parent's :-)). Charles was the best host! We'll come back if we get the opportunity.

Great place, nice home on the canal with boat, kayaks and bikes! We put all to use and had a great time! Charles was very welcoming and even took us out on the boat to show us around! Thanks
