It’s Not Just Real Estate - It’s the Pine Island Lifestyle!
If you have ever been to Bokeelia, Pineland, St. James City or Matlacha in Pine Island, Florida you know that this is not an island that takes itself too seriously. That's not to say, however, that you can't have some serious fun! With breathtaking views and some of the best water access in Southwest Florida, Pine Island is a true Island lovers' paradise.
While it may be true that we do not have long sandy beaches, Cayo Costa - accessible only by boat - is a short ride away and offers 9 miles of pristine, sandy beaches with some of the best shelling in Florida.
Any fisherman out there? We will not brag too much about the fact that we are internationally known as one of the world's top fishing destinations. Boca Grande Pass, for example, is the Tarpon Capital of the World and only a five minute boat ride from Bokeelia to boot.
OK, OK, enough about the fact that you cannot run out of fun and exciting things to do on Pine Island. (Check out our blog to see what cool things we are doing now.) Let's get to the reason you looked us up in the first place: You need a place to hang your hat in between all of these awesome activities. Well, future flamingo lovers, you have landed at the right spot. Mike and Brian have a VAST (or at least a pretty good) knowledge of Pine Island and its real estate market and are ready to help you in your search in any way they can.

Pine Island Florida - A Fisherman's Paradise
Pine Island's easy, affordable access to Boca Grande Pass and the Gulf of Mexico offers some of the best fishing and boating in the world. Tarpon, snook, redfish, grouper, snapper, sea trout and many other varieties help make this a fisherman's paradise.
Flats fishing, or light tackle fishing is one of the most popular types of sport fishing in the local waters. The sport of tarpon fishing originated in Pine Island Sound. Boca Grande Pass (just 20 minutes across Pine Island Sound from Bokeelia) is considered the "Tarpon Capital of the World."
The waters of Matlacha Pass and the Pine Island Sound Aquatic Preserve are also delightful to explore by kayak or canoe. Non-paddlers can take a cruise or water taxi to the outer islands of Cayo Costa, North Captiva or Cabbage Key to picnic on the beach or dine in one of the casual waterfront restaurants specializing in fresh seafood, served up island-style.
Matlacha Pass National Wildlife Refuge is located on Pine Island, where bird watchers enjoy sightings of osprey, roseate spoonbills, many species of herons and egrets, ibises, bald eagles, owls, hawks and songbirds.
Surrounded by three aquatic preserves, Pine Island is also home to many species of wildlife including manatees, dolphins and sea otters.
