About this rental
Gorgeous wide water views and easy water access from this very private, 2300 sq. ft. furnished retreat. This fantastic location affords the ability to stay at home and chill or easily set out for more adventure!
Marco Island and their stunning beaches is a short easy drive, "the back way" though Goodland. If you choose to venture further into Naples for all its offerings, that is easy too as we are located on the less traveled East side of Naples. This location is truly a hidden gem!
Enjoy the stunning sunrise each morning from the spacious Lanai while watching the Dolphins and Manatees swim by. Immerse yourself in the peaceful, natural tropical setting removed from the busy areas of other in town locations. Spend a relaxing day at the heated saltwater pool just steps outside your door. Most days you will find you have it all to yourself, but with the songbirds of course.
Jump in your boat off your dock out front and cruise to the 10,000 Island Preserve and enjoy a day on the water and picnic on their secret islands. If you don't have a boat you can easily rent one or take an excursion out into the Gulf from the onsite Marina nearby.
World class gamefish fishing is right off your dock and in nearby waters. Need some supplies/bait or expert advise? Local Pro Guides are available at the onsite, well stocked Marina Convenience Store.
Want to take in a local attraction? There is easy access to all The Everglades hiking, biking, nature attractions, Eco Tours and thrilling Air Boat Rides.
Finish up the day with a short 5 minute stroll on the waterfront boardwalk to the nearby Port of the Isles Resort for drinks and dinner at the Angler's Cove Restaurant.
If you choose to stay in... Enjoy the bright airy open floorplan while cooking meals in the well appointed kitchen with water view dining. Take in the calming of the nightly water show as Bald Eagles and Osprey dive out front for their dinner. Retire to your spacious water view master suite with large soaking tub and ah!
If you would like to stay more than 3 months during the off season, you can ask us about our extended stay discounted rates for off season months.

The pool is open at night for those quite night dips and has romantic low lighting.
The friendly down to earth neighbors may become great friends as they return yearly and do many activities together.
When you hang out at the pool during the day, lay back in a lounge chair and watch the sky. Flocks of reflective birds will play and glide on the thermals in a mesmerizing fashion.
The Marco Island Beaches have some of the best shelling spots in the world. If you bring a mask it will make it even easier to find the illusive Sand Dollars.
Driving "the back way" over the Goodland bridge to Marco Island may afford you to see Goliath Tortoises right on the sides of the road. Also check out the darling Burrowing Owls that inhabit Marcos in town sandy lots. Look for little roped off areas with a small mound of sand. The owls like to hang out right on top of the mound during the day with their young.
If you want to get the freshest seafood to cook yourself, take a quick drive to the dock fish market on Goodland. Or, cast a line right off your dock. You can catch Tarpon, Snook, Sea Trout, Redfish, and Catfish. Live bait is always available at the Marina Store.
Want to catch a trophy? 100 lb. Tarpon have been caught right off the docks here.
If you suddenly realize you are out of a cooking ingredients, that's easy. The Marina Convenience Store has your back. They have lots of food prep items, Wine and Beer a short walk from your place.
If you want to get the best made water gear, hunt down the many surf shops in the area. There are always fun local t-shirts there too.
If you want to use the onsite Hotel Resort Facilities you can pay a nominal fee and have access to workout rooms, tennis courts and the extensive pool complex.
If an emergency pops up the onsite EMT and Fire Department is just a couple of blocks away.

About the owner: We take great pride in this property and love being able to share this special location with our guests.
We respond quickly to your requests and want you to have a seamless vacation stay that will make lasting memories for you and your family.
You may have noticed we don't have many reviews yet. We have offered and managed many rentals before and this is a new place for us.
Why this property? There are tons of regular in town rentals with lots of everything but that also means lots of people and traffic. We prefer to hang with nature and have more privacy, space and options.
This super natural and very private location allows you to be close to it all without it being right on top of you. We feel it is the best of both worlds.
This location allows you to decide if you want to have a very serene day at home or get out and experience all the excitement with ease!
Wonderful experience,Condo was perfect. Great place for the family,location great. Minutes away from Marco Island beaches and Naples beaches. Neighborhood was great for walking and over looking the marina.Neighbors residents very friendly. Would stay there again! But as only my wife would notice more beach towels please and maybe another tv n one of the bedrooms. Tks again Mike!

A great place to stay!
Wow!!! We stayed here from mid-March to mid-April and the weather was wonderful. Eighties in the day and 50s at night, with no rain to speak of. The condo is lovely, the beds are comfy, it is nicely decorated, and has plenty of dishes, pots and pans. The view over the canal was beautiful. Coffee on the lanai while watching the sunrise and seeing the manatees, gators, bald eagles, and dolphins couldn't be beat! Although you have to drive to get places, the peace and quiet here was well worth it. All the neighbors were friendly, the pool relaxing (and not crowded!) and the general vibe slow and easy. The Publix grocery store is great and about 10 minutes away, Marco Island about twenty, and downtown Naples about a half hour or so. Plenty of places to go nearby for scenic walks. So many restaurants! We especially liked Snook Inn on Marco Island, and the shopping in Naples is a great way to spend a day. We liked Lowdermilk Beach in Naples the best. Get there by 9 or 10 to get parking ($3/hr). We tried Tigertail Beach on Marco Island but found the long walk from the parking lot to the water a bit too much for our liking. All in all, we enjoyed our time here immensely. Mike was a pleasure to work with. We highly recommend this lovely retreat from reality!!!

Nature at its best
Love nature? This is for you. Peaceful and beautiful views. Townhouse emmaculate and extremely accomadating. Equipped with all you need. Beautifully decorated and very spacious. We were not used to the drive into town, but you get used to the drive surrounded by the natural beauty of the everglades. Marco island not far away, great restaurants. Watch for the gators, bears and panthers. Wow that was amazing to see.
