Pine Island is a 17-mile-long stretch of land west of Cape Coral that includes the communities of St. James City and Bokeelia, with the community of Matlacha being just east, on a smaller island. This Island is typical of "old Florida," lifestyle, laidback and slow paced,and people are taking advantage of the lower prices in the real estate market to buy homes in this natural environment. Through July 24, 57 waterfront single-family homes have sold in 2010 on the island with a high price of $1.07 million and a median price of about $260,000. In addition, 42 more off-water single-family homes, 12 condominium and 25 manufactured (2 comments)
Matlacha is one of five communities on Pine Island, although technically, it is located on a smaller island in Matlacha Pass, east of Pine Island. It is an "Old Florida" fishing village home to many brightly-colored art galleries, island boutiques, seafood restaurants, and traditional Florida cottages. From a settlement of homesteaders, Matlacha developed into a rowdy commercial fishing village. The fishing industry flourished for decades and then essentially died with the banning of gill nets, which (2 comments)

matlacha: Matlacha a Old Florida fishing village with a twist - 07/21/09 12:00 AM
Matlacha or Matlacha Shores and Matlacha Isles is unique. Its hodgepodge mix of vibrantly painted restaurants, antiques, art studios and cottages is located between Cape Coral and Pine Island itself.

matlacha: Where Is Old Florida? - 04/26/09 09:34 PM
You will find it on Pine Island, for one place. The entrance to Pine Island is the artistic community of Matlacha. St. James City is located the southern end of the Island and Bokeelia on the northern tip facing Charlotte Harbor. Definitely not Sanibel or Captiva and still wonderfully free of the glitter and glam, the gated golf course condominiums and the strip malls.St. James City was established in 1885 by a group of sun-seeking New Englanders who brought their spruce-and white pine from Maine. The oldest survivor in Bokeelia dates from 1904 and today houses a restaurant, Cap'n Con's. Cap'n Con's has been the (1 comments)
