Pine Island located 15 minutes from Cape Coral
and 30 minutes from Fort Myers
. Its tropical island atmosphere is a world apart
with cool condo rentals, villa rentals, vacation rentals and many more excellent accommodations and lodging options.
Pine Island has a small town feel
with friendly neighbors, well-appointed villas, a mild climate year-round, no traffic lights or billboards, a low crime rate and protection from over-development with no building higher than the tallest tree. Yet great airport services, restaurants and fabulous shopping are just minutes away.
For nature lovers the island is surrounded by three aquatic preserves and home to many species of wildlife
including manatees, sea otters, bald eagles, osprey, heron, roseate spoonbills and egrets, to name a few. Extensive palm groves, exotic tropical fruit trees like mango and papaya and colorful flowering plants enhance the tropical island ambiance. Accommodations, vacation rental, condo rental and villa rental options blend seamlessly into the natural beauty.
Pine Island's secluded, quaint and "country waterfront" atmosphere is a huge part of its charm.
Fringed with mangroves rather than white sand beaches, Pine Island has escaped the concrete, blacktop and skyscrapers found in the touristy, beach communities.
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 and many other varieties help make this a fisherman's paradise. 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.
Cape Coral is unique for containing over 400 miles of navigable waterways, making this one of a kind destination bursting with endless recreational opportunities.
From affordable vacation rentals to luxury villa rentals, Cape Coral offers full variety accommodation choices.
Fort Myers is steeped in history
and is home to a wealth of sights, museums and estates. The city’s claim to fame is the legendary inventor Thomas Edison who built his winter holiday home and laboratory here. Fort Myers is now known as the City of Palms after Thomas Edison planted hundreds of towering royal palms along McGregor Boulevard, a historic residential street and site of his winter estate. Visitors should not miss the famous Festival of Light which is a month long celebration in honor of Edison's birthday, February 11th. Countless events are held throughout the celebration including parades, concerts, science fairs and crafts shows. This historic town has wonderful accommodations and many fully equipped vacation rental and villa rental options.
