Nellie's Nest

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Oct 7, 2014
House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Nellie's Nest is named after the previous owner & long time Bokeelia creative personality, Miss Nellie. Now owned by her nephew, this home is cozy, well loved and beautifully remodeled. Reminders of Miss Nellie exist in her original art work, lush gardens, and historic memorabilia. Located on the northern tip of Pine Island, it is a mere 5 minutes to open water. The home is on a quiet, dead end street with water on both sides of the road, and is 2 streets away from the public boat ramp. Pine Island has a 15 mile long public bike path which runs the full length of the island but the real focus of this quiet fishing village is gorgeous Charlotte Harbor and the Gulf of Mexico, and fantastic fishing for all ages. Cayo Costa State Park can be reached by private boat or ferry. Boca Grande Pass is the location of annual tarpon tournaments every June and is a brief 20 minute run by boat. You have to drive through Matlacha to get to Bokeelia so you already noticed all the art galleries and restaurants (including Great Licks with home made ice cream!). Sit by your dock and watch the mullet jump in the canal while the egrets, herons, bald eagles and osprey go fishing!

Wonderful Stay, Very Good Fishing, We recommend Accommodations

  • 5 of 5
Family of five seniors (one, 95 years old) stayed one week and loved it. House was very clean and Boat parking accommodations on canal worked out just fine. Fishing was very productive and the weather was perfect all week long.
Could not ask for more!

Owner's Response: Bob, it was great that you were able to bring your father on this trip. The house is very accessible since it's on 1 level & has safety rails in the bathroom. And summertime fishing is HOT in more ways than one- the weekly paper is full of redfish reports! Thanks for staying with us again...and we look forward to your return in a couple weeks!

A great place for a staycation

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed or stay at Nellie's Nest. The house was in a great location close to the marina and restaurants. The amenities were even better than what we expected. The owners were very quick to respond when we had a concern or a question. We took the ferry to Cabbage Key to get a cheese burger in paradise and then to the beach at Cayo Costa ... it was a wonderful day trip. I will definitely recommend Nellie's Nest to my friends and family. We hope to return again...next time with our boat!

Owner's Response: Please do come back with your boat! We have space at the seawall to tie up a 26 foot & there is no extra charge for dockage. We're glad you got a chance to get over to Cabbage Key & to Cayo Costa, an easy boat ride whether by ferry or personal boat. Thanks again for staying at Nellie's Nest.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5
The home is beautiful and super clean and was affordable. Owners didn't miss any details. From maps with fishing locations and tide charts to restaurant menus. Nothing was skipped on the details. Fishing was excellent and neighbors were very nice and helpful. My family and I will definitely check availability to come back for another fishing vacation. We had a great time. Everything was definitely top notch.

Owner's Response: Thanks Alison for your review and comments - and more importantly, for your return trip to Nellie's Nest! We truly appreciate that our guests choose to come back year after year. I know you brought your boat but did you get the kayaks out on the water too? Robert replaced the seat in the red one in anticipation of your arrival :) You mentioned doing some shopping in Matlacha too - always a good spot for unique gifts on the island. Meanwhile...I'm back to Fruitscapes to buy more mangoes! Hope to see you again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your great review. We take pride in Nellie's Nest & that we consistently receive five star reviews from our guests. It is a great location for a group of six fishermen such as yourselves, or for a couple looking for a peaceful retreat. Summertime is great fishing in the beautiful waters of Charlotte Harbor & Pine Island Sound & we hope you are able to return soon.
