Recognize that you are only renting the downstairs, which is why it is only a one bedroom. Porpoises swam within 30 ft. of the seawall. Very clean; fully furnished. Goodland has none of the congestion or confusion of Marco. You MUST go to Little Bar.

Place was exactly as pictured. Clean, comfortable and located in a quiet neighborhood. We found the waterway in front to be a constant source of interest. Wildlife was everywhere, boat traffic was non-stop( very quiet due to the manatee zone), fish jumping, dolphins swimming by several times a day, manatees going by, all wonders for a Mainer.
Entertainment is nearby, walking distance to Sunday gatherings at Stans which were great. Another good restaurant was next door.
Calusa Island was 1/2 mile drive away. Can charter fishing boats there. Can fish in front of house or walk to Goodland Boat Park next door for a pier to fish from.
Entertaining, relaxing, and care free. Amy answers all questions quickly, don't be afraid to ask, we did.
Stock up, if possible, before arriving. No store in Goodland. Nearest complete shopping in 12-13 miles away.
Sit back, enjoy the sun, don't bring many warm clothes.
Owner response: Thank you Jim and Rhoda. We are so happy that you enjoyed our home as much as we do! Seeing the dolphins and manatees never gets old to us. The only thing I wanted to add to your review is that the grocery store is only 2 miles from the house. There is a Publix, Subway, Burger King, Ace Hardware, and Dollar Store two miles away. Any other shopping is probably about 12-13 miles away. Thank you again for staying with us and we hope to see you again in the future.

About the owner: We both grew up in the North East and have lived in Florida for 6 years. We live and work in Bonita Springs but love to get away to Goodland on the weekends.
Why the Owner Chose Goodland: We decided to buy in Goodland because we love the rustic feel of the island. Once you stay at this house you will want to come back year after year. Someday this will be where we retire.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The day we first looked at the house, we fell in love as dolphins swam 10 feet away from the house. This home sits on a cul-de-sac and overlooks beautiful water and mangroves. The only sounds you hear are the osprey, dolphins, and quite puttering of boats going by.
