Property 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. A golf cart is included in your rental for your convenience in getting around to restaurants and other locations. And 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!

Goodland is the gateway to the 10,000 Islands National Wildlife Refuge, a 35,000 acre nature preserve which joins the 1.5 million acre Everglades National Park lying between Marco Island and the Florida Keys. It is a totally unspoiled natural paradise which allows endless sightseeing, nature watching, fishing and just plain exploring!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

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.
