Marian Faullkner re-tired in 2009 leaving Charleston, S.C., for a 6-month vacation on Am-bergris Caye in Belize. Discovering that Pine Island had more to offer than living as an ex-pat in a foreign country was all it took for her and her husband to make the move back across the border.
They bought and renovated a home in Bokeelia through Pine Island Realty and reside there with their three Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Sophie, Malbec and Caliber.
If you're looking to buy a vacation or forever home, or if you want to put your home on the market, contact Faulkner at 239-314-4067, or stop in at the Pine Island Realty office in the center of the island at 5400 Pine Island Road. You can also visit www.pine-island.com
