About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, 6 Sleeps


This is the fishermans delight. In addition to staying in the house with the prettiest sunset views on Pine Island, you are right across the street from the best spot on Pine Island to launch either kayaks or simply wade out for fishing. You are also walking distance from the Pineland marina. The home is also on the old Calusa Indian's canal right behind the Calusa Indian mounds, there is a state park established in the last 5 years that has a fun walking trail, there are several plackards that explain the history of the people that lived here 500 years ago. The nature walk wanders for about a half mile 50 yards behind the home. When you walk around the grounds you will feel that you went back in time. Again you are also in the house that sits front row to prettiest sunsets on Pine Island. The double kayak and old windsurfing rig come with the rental of the house, just a small additional deposit is required for use, this will be returned to you.

About Richard Williams

My grandfather built this house as a fishermans getaway from his North Carolina based business in a different era.

Richard Williams purchased this house in 1959

Why Richard Williams chose Bokeelia

It is located on the ideal location of Pine Island, with water access a beautiful sunset view and walking distance from what was then a very remote Marina in which he was a part owner.

What makes this house unique

Since the Calusa trail has been constructed this house directly between this historic reservation and the water. Because this home was so well constructed it stood tall and strong under the wrath of Hurricane Charlie while most all of the newer homes didn't fair as well.

Beautiful spot to enjoy the island.

  • 4 of 5

Definitely an eclectic experience. I felt as though I stepped back in time. Nice surroundings but dated.

beautiful view and feeling of peacefulness

  • 3 of 5

Nice style home in quiet area. Nice home with plenty of room, huge yard. Thought it had 3 bedrooms but only 2 bedrooms but had cots. Had fun playing pool. Only drawback was air conditioner filter screen was very dirty, house had musty smell when entering and air vents were either very dusty or had mold growing. One bedroom had mold aroma too. May not be a big issue, just my family is sensitive to mold. Don't think serious issue, probably just from not being occupied all the time.

Beautiful Place with History

  • 4 of 5

A wonderful place, with a fine beach-house set up, very clean and appropriately furnished. Gorgeous sunsets. Lots of birding opportunities! as well as fishing, kayaking etc. As noted, the in-house kayaks leak, but the water is shallow ;-) The Randall Center is an amazing and even rather mystical walking park around the corner and out back, laid out with informational signs and staffed by UF and volunteer naturalists; it's the location of a thousands-of-years ago ancient city of the indigenous Calusa tribe, thankfully preserved from surrounding development. We plan to visit again, and invite friends/family to join us there!

good value-great location-

  • 4 of 5

I have to take issue with the previous review. Some things were correct-the kayaks and bikes-But when I spoke with the owner when we rented he told me the condition of the equipment was questionable-so no issue for us there. The house was very clean and ready when we arrived and totally served our purposes. We were there to kayak (we rented-next time we bring our own) and relax and enjoy a very peaceful pace. That was what we found. We are scheduled to return next year and will spend a month-not a week in this home. The fishing is awesome. The pool table excellent.

Pine Island is old florida-no high rises and pretty laid back.

What would make me give it five stars-and hopefully next time I will-is simple:

Needs new mattresses. Other wise this place is awesome and I am so looking forward to 2015 and 31 days of kayak fishing!!!! And the sunsets were so stunning we were home most evenings for them-if we were not on the water!!

Local food is good and for the most part reasonable. I not only would reccomend it to friends I am encouraging some of them to visit us there next year.

The house is walking distance from the pineland marina and the Tarpon Lodge, you are 4 houses down from author Randy White. By water you are only six miles from Boca Grande Pass and some of the best tarpon fishing in the world Ferries from pineland marina daily to other islands. One is also less than half a mile from the challenging and quaint golf course Alden Pines, which is open to public. This is also the favorite spot for windsurfers to walk right across the street and launch because of the easy access yet full exposure to the wind with the wave protection of an inland Island. There is even a beat up old windsurfing rig that is ready to go and a double kayak in good shape that come with the house and you are welcome to use with a small deposit.

Thanks for Looking
