Goodland apartment description
Dramatic water views of the Marco River greet you at every turn as you stay in this historic Goodland landmark with its own private boat basin. A former small marina converted to two separate apartments which provide simple but comfortable accommodations located not merely on the water, but practically in the water.
You will witness incomparable up-close views of wildlife, from dolphins frolicking in the Marco River to manatees occasionally even roaming into the boat basin right at your front door. This unique property will charm and you and make you want to stay forever.
Throw your castnet over the bait-fish that often school up in the canal, then launch your boat right into the prime fishing grounds of the 10,000 islands, well known for fantastic Snook and Redfish action, among many other species that heavily populate this unspoiled fishing paradise. Direct access to the gulf does not get any more direct than this!
If you are an Eco tourist, this property is the perfect place to launch your kayak directly into the islands right from your front door. You simply cannot get any closer to where you are going, even in Everglades City or Port of the Islands, which both have long canals.
Just want to relax? Goodland is the place. A small fishing village with excellent restaurants within walking distance, as well as two modern marinas offering boat rentals, fuel and bait. There is plenty of room to park your trailer and the public boat ramp is less than 0.5 miles drive. This is a truly fantastic property!

Richard from the Netherlands
Me and two friends left the Netherlands for fishing in the beautiful world of ten thousand islands. It was the fifth time and we were looking for a perfect place to stay. The house from Jim Golden was everything the description and photos promised and more. The rooms were clean, Wi-Fi very fast, the kitchen well equipped, the shower hot and the beds were good. And because the house is direct next to the water the manatees where next to us. We could even see dolphin's in the cannel. For us it was great to have our boat next to the house. Jim also has a golf cart which we could use. A perfect way to travel around in Goodland and visit the restaurants. If you want more restaurants or a supermarket; Marco Island is only a ten minutes drive. When we had a question Jim was always there to help us out. We really enjoyed our stay and are already planning our stay in 2014! Thanks Jim.

About the owner: We love boating, fishing and exploring in the 10,000 islands and Florida Keys.
Why the Owner Chose Goodland:
We have been visiting Marco Island for years but recently fell in love with Goodland and this quaint, historic and very unique property. Unlike being on a canal in Marco or other SWFL properties, this home puts you right on the Marco River leading directly out to the gulf. You cannot get any more direct access than this property provides. When you leave your front door, there is a very short no wake zone and you are off!
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Goodland is one of the few places where old Florida survives. Laid back and relaxed with great local bars and restaurants. Life is good in Goodland.
