Hi, I'm Jennifer!
We chose The Island Retreat because of it's size, amenities and close proximity to what one do on a Florida vacation or as a lucky resident. We are avid boaters and this is the best place to either island hop to the over 100 islands, go out in the Gulf of Mexico for Deep Sea Fishing or a jaunt up to Boca Grande for the great Tarpon fishing in the Summer. There are also some of Florida's best beaches nearby. Although we are not a "beachfront" property, we are waterfront property close to virtually all those beachfront options which are open to us by boat and easily accessible from our private dock. Cayo Costa is the BEST beach in Southwest Florida. It's pristine and natural because no one is permitted to develop on that island and you can only get there by boat.
