We had such a great time! The bungalow was just perfect for us for our honeymoon fishcation! The house is in a fantastic location on the water and it was really nice having the boat lift there for us to use. We liked it so much that we went ahead and booked it again while we were still there! Thank you guys so much!

We loved this place! The owner's have named it "Tarpon Camp" and by the looks of it they use it for their own getaways. We will likely rent it again when we can bring our boat. It is a great escape especially for Floridian's who want a little bit of old Florida away from the tourist crowds. No "scripted" vacations here. It is immaculately clean, everything is fresh and well decorated. The house, though built in the 1950's is freshened up and extremely comfortable, new A/C, Flat screen TV's, Cable and well-kept lawn. Ton's of towels and extra blankets. It is on a canal with access to Jug Creek (Bayou) and across from Calusa Island and a pass into Charlotte Harbor. Convenient boating access to Boca Grande, Cayo Costa, Cabbage Key, North Captiva, Useppa islands. If you have no boat there is a nearby marina with a shuttle to Cayo Costa, an untouched island with natural wild beaches. The home is also equipped with lawn chairs, large cooler, nice kayaks, fish cleaning station, kitchen utensils, washer and dryer, and a rare find for a rental holiday home... a powered boat lift on the canal out back. Launching the Kayaks from the canal sea wall can be challenging, as an option there is a nice gently sloping put-in between the Mangroves at the north end of the street. There are dining options in Bokeelia including the Lazy Flamingo inside the Four Winds Marina, and others on Pine Island including Woody's, The Low Key Tiki, and Ragged Ass Saloon in St. James City on the south of the island, not to mention dining and shopping options in Matlacha. For night life, there is a sort of Honky Tonk in St. James City named Froggy's. On the night we were there it was a great friendly crowd of all ages, a fantastic live band, and lively games of pool were enjoyed. We loved exploring the island by car and Kayak. Looking forward to exploring by boat on the next trip.

This well maintained, spotless property is the perfect getaway for people who want to unwind in a quiet location and enjoy what nature has to offer in this special area. We began every day sitting on the deck facing the canal watching ospreys nesting in a tree on the opposite side. We were visited on the property by egrets, small and great heron, ibis and pelicans. We spent many hours exploring and fishing from the kayaks supplied by the owner. We caught numerous fish within a short distance from the house and saw countless birds in the nearby mangrove lagoons.

We were pleasantly surprised at our house in Bokeelia! It was very clean and comfortably furnished. Our location was right on a canal and we enjoyed sitting outside watching the boats go by and the birdlife. Great walking/biking path nearby as well. We would definitely recommend a stay at the Tarpon Camp!

Great location and very comfortable house with all the conveniences! Easy access to Jug Creek, Charlotte Harbor and Boca Grande Pass. Close to marinas and restaurants. Great boat lift, but use is subject to something greater than low tide. No where to leave boat off lift and tied up. Really would be great if sea wall had a couple of pilings set so that would be possible.

Great little house in an area of many interesting acttivities. The house was clean, well maintained, well furnished and equiped. It had evrything that we needed. It was located on a canal that led to the Gulf - very short distance to open water. It had a new boat lift for renters use. There were also 2 kayaks available which made us happy. This is a very good fishing area, we enjoyed the freash seafood! While the lively tourest area of Matlacha is only about 20 minutes away, things on the island are much quieter and slower paced. Ft. Myers is about 35 minutes away, and Cayo Costo State Park is just a ferry ride away (marina is within waking distance). Sal, the owner is close by to handle any problms. We had none. We actualy extended our stay by 4 days. We enjoyed eveything about our expericne in Bokeelia.
