About the neighbourhood
The 3 story home is located on Cayo Costa Island State Park. This island is in Southwest Florida within Lee County. The unbridged island is 2,000 acres, 98% owned by the State of Florida. It is 7 miles long and has 9 miles of undeveloped beaches. This tropical pristine island is in a completely natural state and is the largest undeveloped island in Florida. The house has been called a luxury wilderness beach house. It has most of the modern conveniences in a home in a very remote location. You will be staying on a real island with no connections to the mainland. You will have quick access to a natural beach (300 yards in front of house) where shelling, beachcombing and swimming are some of the best in the world. There is easy access to catch snook, redfish, trout, whiting, pompano, mullet, cobia, snapper, flounder and grouper. World class fishing for tarpon off the beach or in Boca Grande Pass at the north end of the island. An uncrowded life with peace and quiet might be the best benefit of all. The State Park Headquarters on the island has a small camp store and park Interpretive Center about the island. The house comes with a dock and transportations to the island is by boat only. Parking is available at Pineland Marina in Pineland Florida where my boat is available for fee to take you to the island and home or you can take your own boat.
