Imagine the glory of private island life in South Florida, but without the constant hassles and worries of living beside the ocean or gulf. Serenely located 30 miles east of Fort Myers, this inland island beauty is set between two locks on the still and fresh waters of the intracoastal waterway, making it a hurricane hole for boaters, and a unique private island retreat for anyone wanting to live out the Florida dream. The beautiful tree-covered triangular island is accessed from Fort Denaud Road via its own gated and asphalt-paved driveway, which leads to a scenic bridge of steel and wood construction—boasting two docks, one on each side of the oxbow.

Starkey Island’s uncompleted Sanibel-style coach house is a gorgeous shell for you to finish to your own particular taste and needs. Currently, the floor plan includes a great room, kitchen, Florida room, office, laundry room, two baths, roof top sun deck, and oversized two-vehicle garage. The heavy duty construction is high quality frame, with open beamed ceilings and decorative cupolas. Back across the bridge, the vacant old river home on the road front is large enough to serve as a second home, a guest house, or an RV condominium with caretaker’s apartment. This lot features its own dock, and privacy is ensured with decorative fencing.

Surrounded by the citrus groves and cattle ranches of Florida’s Hendry County, Starkey Island is located the historic town of LaBelle, sometimes called “the City of Oaks” or “the Belle of the Caloosahatchee,” and home to the unique Swamp Cabbage Festival every February. Just half an hour drive to the southwest, exciting Fort Myers offers an abundance of fantastic dining, shopping and cultural options, and quick and easy return access to your distinctive private island retreat.
