We loved it!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Charming Getaway

  • 5 of 5

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.

Recent trip to Canal Front Bokeelia Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great little area!

  • 4 of 5

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!

Up to date!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just spent 3 fantastic weeks in this updated, cozy cottage. Everything was as advertised and we couldn't have asked for better service from Sal and Nancy. We enjoyed kayaking and fishing in Jugg creek and took the water taxi to Cayo Costa for the day. The only problem I had was not bringing my boat along. There was a few minor hiccups during our stay but they were taken care of immediately by Sal & Nancy. We would definitely consider this property in the future.

Our Fort Myers vacation rentals provide the perfect tropical getaway. The city's mild climate paired with water sports, top-notch golf, and world-class shopping and dining makes Fort Myers a popular year-round Florida destination.

Stay in an iTrip rental and relax on Fort Myers' beaches, known as some of the best in the world. Spend your days lounging in the sunshine or exploring the Caloosahatchee River located on the Gulf Coast. Our guests will have a blast surfing, boating, swimming, fishing, kayaking and sailing. All of this is located right outside your Fort Myers vacation home.

In addition to water activities, plan to visit the must-see attractions in Fort Myers. Take a walking tour to see the downtown sights and the Edison and Fort Winter Estates and gardens. Visit The Imaginarium, an interactive museum that has exhibits that demonstrate scientific concepts, suited for children and families. Or ride the Seminole Gulf Railway, a great way to see the scenic countryside and experience a murder mystery dinner.

Other family-friendly things to do in Fort Myers include miniature train rides at Lakes Regional Park, playing at the Shell Factory and Nature Park, and spending time together at the Calusa Nature Center and Planetarium.

Next, recharge at one of Fort Myers restaurants. Guests love the area's fresh seafood, but there's way more to try in this destination. Top places to eat serve Asian, barbecue, Italian, Mexican and more, with casual, waterfront and upscale options available. The area also houses several local microbreweries and List Distillery, the first boutique distillery in the area.

Looking for that special souvenir or gift for a loved one? Fort Myers also serves as a top shopping destination in southwest Florida. Guests will find boutiques and locally owned shops in downtown Fort Myers (a.k.a. River District). For big-box retail and major brands, there are Miromar Outlets, Sanibel Outlets and Coconut Point in nearby Estero Island. Art aficionados will also enjoy browsing the area's galleries and museums.

Regardless of what type of vacation you plan, we offer both luxury condos and homes located right on the water. All of our rental accommodations offer WiFi, cable, full kitchens, balconies, and many have private pools, a washer/dryer and welcome pets. Enjoy all the comforts of home during your stay, and return to your home feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.
