Port of the Islands offers waterfront single family luxury homes, single family villas, condos, hotel condos, and lots. There's a full-service Marina. The marina, owned and operated by Collier County Parks and Recreation, also offers boat tours and boat rentals. And we have our own fire station manned 24/7. Across the street, there's a gun club. Trap, skeet, and sporting clays are offered at 'Clays in the Glades' plus a rifle and pistol range at 'Louland.'
Many of our neighbors enjoy walking, running, and biking around our safe community. Watching the manatees play and swim is a common relaxing pastime from your lanai. And if you enjoy fishing at your backdoor, you can catch snook, tarpon, snapper, and more...right off the dock and seawall.
Best of all, dock your boat at your back door too! Take a leisurely ride down the canal into the islands or around the community, setting your eyes and ears on many native birds.

About the owner: Our active family of four was desired a tranquil getaway in nature near the beach. This is the place we would most like to be! Best of both worlds, the peace and tranquility of POI, with access to world class restaurants and shopping.

Ride your boat down the canal to private beaches and the Gulf of Mexico.

The Unique Benefits at this House: The truth is many of us dream of 'living on the water'. This means being surrounded by it day and night. We are drawn to it for some reason.
