INSIDE THE HOUSE
Pull into the 4-car drive, then find the front door, located to the right of the garage. Go through the double screen doors onto a small porch, and then into the main front doors.
High ceilings in the foyer create an airy ambiance. Note the closet for extra storage space. Continue through to the living room, where you’ll get a good look at the pool and the canal out back. Sophisticated yet comfortable, this room is the ultimate gathering space with easy-care tile flooring and plenty of seating between the love seat, couch, and recliner. A stately entertainment center houses a 55” flat-screen TV, plus books and games. Floor-to-ceiling doors allow for a seamless interior/exterior experience.
Open to the living room, the kitchen allows the cook to interact with guests while preparing meals. The light oak cabinets are stocked with everything you need to cook and the kitchen is equipped with full-size appliances. In the mornings, enjoy coffee at the kitchen bar with 2 stools.
The dining area overlooks the lanai and canal, and is furnished with a 4-person glass-top table.
Decked out in Tommy Bahama decor, the master bedroom is a tropical paradise with a king bed, plenty of storage, a 55” flat-screen TV, and his-and-her closets. Sliding glass doors lead out to the lanai, so you wake up and fall asleep to incredible views.
Soak away your cares in the en suite’s deep, jetted tub. The bathroom also features dual sinks, a linen closet, and a walk-in tiled shower.
In the 2nd bedroom, guests are treated to handsome wood furniture and a queen bed decorated with a crisp-white comforter. The room also has plenty of storage, a 42” flat-screen TV, and a ceiling fan.
Put up extra guests or the kids in the 3rd bedroom with queen-size Murphy bed with a brand-new mattress. Built-in cabinets and drawers offer storage space, and a ceiling fan keeps the room comfortable.
The shared full bath has doors to the main hallway, the 2nd bedroom, and the back lanai; it features a large vanity with single sink and tub/shower combo.
When dirty clothes begin to pile up, you’ll appreciate the laundry area with side-by-side washer and dryer and single sink.
Spend the sun-drenched afternoons around the saltwater pool beside the canal. Put your feet up on the Adirondack chairs, soaking in the water views. Come evening, take your meals outside to the 8-person patio table with umbrella.
And be sure to grab a fishing pole from the home’s stash and see what you can catch off the private dock.
Hop on one of the bikes available for guests and explore the area. If you bring your own boat, the ramp and marina are within walking distance.
Ready for dinner Matlacha (9 minutes) has numerous restaurants covering all types of cuisine. Adorable boutiques and art galleries make it a great place to shop, too.
Hike around 4,700-acre Little Pine Island, a national preserve just across the waterway.
You'll want to explore the quaint towns of Bokeelia, Pine Island, Matlacha and St. James City.
