We take great pride in providing a lovely home and we are fortunate to have so many returning guests. We invite you to become one of our returning guests.

Currently $100 for one couple ( and a max of $150 with additional guests) the Shellhouse offers:

A tastefully decorated house. The kitchen is bright and airy, clean and fully equipped, with all modern appliances. The Shellhouse provides crisp bed linens and fresh towels. A queen bedroom upstairs with a full private bath. Downstairs, a twin suite with private bath. The living area and dining area are comfortable for yourself and guests. There are ceiling fans throughout, even on the screened veranda. It is great to watch the boats head out in the morning and return at day's end. There is so much to see, just from the porch.

Outside, the Shellhouse has lounge chairs, table and chairs, umbrella. There is a utility room to safe guard your possessions as well as bikes and a freezer for your catch. At the lift is a cleaning station and fresh water for fish and boat rinse.

Located on the northern shore of Pine Island, our home is on the small tropical location called Bokeelia.

Water everywhere but so accessible by car, and less than an hour from I-75. This is one of the Palm Beach Post's top ten 'picture postcard perfect Florida vacation destinations'. No high rises, traffic lights, or fast food restaurants in Bokeelia.Experience world-class fishing or kick back and breathe in the salty Gulf breezes. Bike to the local restaurants or to the pier.

At the Shell House you can enjoy the screened veranda overlooking the canal or idle the four minutes out to Charlotte Harbor and your Gulf Slam. The waters have been named by Field and Stream Magazine as the 'Hottest Spot In Florida' for saltwater fishing. Boca Grande Pass, home of several of the world's richest tarpon tournaments, is a 15 minute run.

Fish open and backwater spots or boat out to the most pristine island beaches anywhere. The Great Calusa Blueway kayaking trail passes the end of our canal. Visit Cayo Costa (a Florida State Park), and North Captiva , Useppa Island and Cabbage Key.

An ancient home of the Calusa Indians, Pine Island Sound and Carlotte Harbor are scattered with Indian mounds and history.Shop our local communities' galleries. Enjoy the local art fests, mullet and mango fests, music fests.

We invite you to come stay at the Shellhouse . Play, fish, relax. We're on island time.

This place is really something, we will go back.

  • 5 of 5
The Shell House was everything it was described and more. What a wonderful place to do as much or as little as you like and be very comfortable to boot. The place was spotless and secure. The fixtures, décor along with the many little things Steve and Ingela had done made us feel both welcome and relaxed. It is obvious that they care very much about this place.
The screened in balcony, with it's ceiling fans, comfortable chairs afforded a great place to just sit relax and observe the air and sea marine wildlife. Many different kinds of fish can be seen in the waters below. The onsite boat ramp and lift is a huge plus. We were fishing in a matter of minutes from the lift. Everything I needed to take care of the boat and fish was right there. How thoughtful to have a separate freezer downstairs to store your catch.
It is great place to do as much or as little as you like. We did enjoy going to the local fruit plantation for fresh fruits and the local cupcake shop for some novel cupcakes. We took several day trips both on and off the island.
We found Steve and Ingela to be very helpful with our questions before our arrival and were pleased when we were asked if anything was needed after we got there.
Bottom line - We will go back and yes we will tell our family and friends.

A Great Getaway...

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just returned from the Shell House for Memorial Day Weekend. What an incredible weekend we had! This house is fully equipped with everything you need and so very clean. Such a convenience having a boat ramp, boat lift and a marina at the end of the canal. The fishing was awesome, snapper, trout, redfish, blacktip shark...we didn't want to leave. Only means one thing, we will definately be returning to stay at the Shell House! Thank you Ingela and Steve for your home, our home.

Shell House- Wonderful for relaxing and fishing.

  • 5 of 5
We rented charming Shell House for the second time and love it. There are near by resturants and charming shopping.

It is perfect for relaxing and fishing on Pine Island. There is a boat lift that accomodated nicely my 26 foot Andros fishing boat. Access to Pine Island sound and good fishing is excellent. We literally caught fish within 7 minutes of launching the boat. It is a also only a 20 minute run to famous Boca Grand Pass and it's exciting Tarpon fishing. There were also plenty of opportunities for great wildlife photography with Ospreys, herons and pelicans abundant(sometimes stealing bait from the live-well).

We truly enjoyed our stay at Shell House with our two little dogs on beatiful tropical Bokeelia.

Steve and Ingela were wonderful hosts and helped with everyting we needed.

Thanks for a great vacation !!

Don and I will be back with Jethrow....we already miss the front porch for breakfast and a lazy morn. Our 4 legged little guy loved watching the birds and boats on the canal and so did we. I have absolutely no suggestions to make Shell House better...so clean and perfect for us...so organized...a lift for the boat and ramp, too...What more could we need? Don, Jethrow, and I say a huge thank you for a wondeferful week in your charming Shell House. We will return! Marianne

We love Shell House

  • 5 of 5
We will be renting Shell House the end of January 2011 for the 4th year. We enjoy the house so much and have our boat right at the front door in the canal. There is a well-maintained boat lift. Steve and Ingela have been great landlords, very welcoming and quick to respond to any request. The guest room and bath are so nice, and we have friends that look forward to visiting us every year. There has never been any problem with rental agreements or payments. The negative review posted earlier couldn't be more wrong.

In love with Shell House

  • 5 of 5
"We will be renting Shell House for the 4th year in January 2011. We have been so impressed with the owners, Steve and Ingela Conley. They have a lovely home and keep it in excellent condition. Our boat is at the door in the canal and in a safe and well-maintained boat lift. We have guests during our 5 weeks every year and the guest room with bath is so nice. Our friends can't wait to return each year. The neighborhood is so great--the location, the quiet, easy access to the Charlotte Harbor and beyond. We have made great friends with the neighbors on both sides, one of which is a renter like us. Steve comes at a moment's notice for the smallest request. The Conleys always visit us and very welcoming. We highly recommend Shell House. You will love it.
