vacation rental description


Enjoy your own private island. As you walk across Jug Creek on the footbridge, it immediately becomes clear why Dots Cottage on Goodwins Island is such a special place. Secluded but not remote, the cottage sits on uplands in Bokeelia, completely surrounded by native vegetation and ringed by Jug Creek. Here you have quick access to some of the best fishing, boating, nature watching and relaxing that Florida has to offer.

Tie your boat up to the footbridge right at your front door and then be in the famous fishing grounds of Chatlotte Harbor, Pine Island Sound or Boca Grande pass in minutes. The fishing is also great from your two docks in Jug Creek. Bait and boat rentals are readily available at the marina just across the creek. The Lazy Flamingo restarant in the marina will do a great job of cooking up your catch. A boat launch ramp is handy on the property and there is plenty of private parking space for boat trailers and cars.

In the back yard there is a lighted raised deck for sunbathing, enjoying cocktails in the evening and watching the sun set over the creek. A walk-in outdoor shower with pulsing showerheads will help you relax after an active day.
The front screened porch looks onto the creek and has a gas grill and plenty of seating for enjoying a meal outside.

You will see herons and egrets strutting around the docks and in the back yard. Occassionally a manatee will swim under the footbridge. A "snook light" on the footbridge attracts bait fish at night, drawing in snook and other larger fish.

A leisurely walk off Goodwins Island brings you to the north end of Pine Island and the shores of beautiful Chatlotte Harbor. Stop in at Twin Palms Gallery which has some of the best old Florida art on Pine Island. Walk a bit further and you come to the historic public fishing pier where bait is available and many people come to fish or to watch sunsets over the harbor. Across from the pier is Captain Cons, an informal fish restaurant.
