Property details

Your Own Tropical Oasis
Welcome to an extraordinary lifestyle. A private island paradise off Florida’s sunset coast, where you live far removed yet not far away. Little Bokeelia Island is over 100 acres of romantic splendor offering majestic tropical living. From the Spanish-style estate home featuring a private guest wing to the old Florida village just a short stroll away, you are sure to be overcome with a sense of peace and serenity the moment you step off your boat. Whether your desire is to spend the days swimming in the gracious pool, walking the nature trail, sunning on the beach, or playing a leisurely game of tennis, you are sure to find your own adventure and magic amid the tropical tranquility. Your insurance policy for this purchase is the value created by the current owners’ foresight in putting in place the utilities necessary to develop 29 large waterfront lots. Or if history is your motivator, then you will be taken aback with the long, storied past of the island’s original residents and visitors including the Calusa Indians, Ponce De Leon, Charles Burgess, and Thomas Edison. It is rare, it is unique, it is simply magical. It is Little Bokeelia Island.

Privacy and Beauty
Savor two of life’s most valued assets. Prized for its location and coveted for its privacy, Little Bokeelia Island is surrounded by state and privately owned land that can never be developed, therefore forever maintaining its unequaled privacy and views. The island is perfectly positioned between Sarasota and Naples, only 1 hour from Ft. Myers International Airport and 1.5 hours from Sarasota-Bradenton Airport, and then just a short boat from Four Winds Marina on Pine Island.

Resplendent Island Living
The island’s central feature is the original manor house, a luxurious Spanish-style villa built in the mid-1920s for well-known inventor Charles Burgess and masterfully restored and expanded by its current owner. The well-appointed rooms of this estate have been carefully planned to capture the island’s best views and gentle sea breezes, while providing all of today’s modern conveniences. The estate is designed to accommodate guests comfortably with a self-contained three bedroom guest wing, separated by an open breezeway and accessed by a private entrance.

A short stroll from the main house brings you to your own old Florida village – a magical barefoot island hub featuring a gathering pavilion, informal history museum featuring the works of Charles Burgess, the caretaker’s cottage, additional guest retreat, open gracious swimming pool, and waterfall and koi pond, all surrounding a lushly, landscaped terrace area for your quiet enjoyment or gala parties.

Destination of Endless Possibilities
The future of Little Bokeelia Island has been anticipated by its present owners, who had the foresight to determine and set in place the necessary utilities to facilitate the property’s incomparable potential for development. With approximately 3 ½ miles of shoreline, 29 large waterfront lots were granted a development order in perpetuity, allowing the opportunity for future development subject only to the creative expression of its new owner. The island is fully serviced with electricity from the mainland, reverse osmosis water plant and multiple back-up generators.

Just Moments Away
The island is sited in Pine Island Sound, where several estuaries converge and create exceptional boating and fishing. From your private dock you have instant access to a variety of islands rich with old Florida charm, including Pine Island, Useppa Island, Cabbage Key, North Captiva Island and Cayo Costa – one of the most pristine barrier islands in Florida. Nearby Boca Grande attracts professional Tarpon anglers from the around the world and hosts the World’s Richest Tarpon Tournament every year. Major shopping and dining options are also conveniently close in nearby Charlotte Harbor and Ft. Myers.
