About the Property
1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
Literally step outside the home to hike and photograph in every direction!! You can hike through the grasses or hike on the old swamp buggy trails. The trails are rugged and used by the native critters in the area.
The property is a very spiritual place encouraging meditation.
The hard packed limestone rock road is great for biking. No threat of fast moving cars, just the wind in the trees. The area is very quiet and serene as the birds and critters move about. Kayaking, canoeing, paddle board, airboats and swamp buggy tours close by, within a few miles. The Turner River Road boat launch is very near. You may also be lucky enough to spot a panther from there.
This home is perfect for nature enthusiasts, artists,authors,etc...The tranquility will be stimulating. Transportation from either Naples Florida or Ft Lauderdale can be arranged, as well as stocking the refrigerator and other necessities.

Please note this luxury cottage is located in Ochopee, NOT Everglades City, it is approximately a 15 minute drive from Everglades City.
This property is suited for nature lovers only!
Luckily, there are no box stores, shopping malls or chain owned restaurants nearby. This location is pristine, just like it was back in the 1970's when the park service acquired most properties to form the park. If you need to have a shopping afternoon, head west into Naples about 40 miles for your fix.
Out here you will find only the wilds of South Florida. You can easily take day trips or half day trips to attractions or beaches in Naples or Miami. All photos included in my site are real, no photo shop or other devices were used. Real animals playing, eating and co- existing together, for real!!
Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: We've always had a great love for the outdoors, especially the Everglades, being such a unique ecosystem. It's the last 'frontier' in south Florida. It has always been a convenient place to visit since Tamiami Trail (US#41)cuts across the state. We've been enjoying the Everglades for 30 years it offers such great diversity in any given season. The flora and fauna change constantly and every day is a new surprise in the woods. Private homes are very seldom available for sale! Most are passed down to the next generation. We were so excited to buy a place right on the Fl Panther Corridor and the Fl Birding Trail. We knew the area must be full of wildlife.
Why the Owner Chose Big Cypress, FL, USA:
I fell in love with this area and sought this property out for years. Only a select few people have the privilege to stay in such a unique area. The pristine ecosystem surrounding the home makes this one special place. It is also very close to the scenic Ten Thousand Isles,Friends of Fakahatchee Park, Collier Seminole State Park, Fl Panther National Wildlife Refuge, The original Skunk Ape Research Headquarters and Miccosukee Indian villages.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Privacy and serenity within a naturalist's paradise best describes the location. Luxury and comfort best describes the home. Should you desire upscale dining and shopping, Naples is about 40 mintes away. Miami is 1 hour away. The Keys is 2 hour away. Owner /mgr may stop by for maintenance. Feel free to stroll through the woods to view large variety of critters in their natural habitat.
