“This was our first time to stay in the St. James City are on Pine Island. It was a great location and in a quiet neighborhood. The check-in and communication with the owner was excellent. Very clean and comfortable. Lovely decor all through the home. All kitchen items that we needed were available to us. The bed in the master bedroom was so comfortable. Spent a lot of our time outside by the enclosed pool reading and relaxing. We also enjoyed several of the restaurants in the area. We will definitely use this rental again if we return to Pine Island.”
