This is our sanity spot, get away. We visit it regularly but want to share with you. We are working professionals. It is 5 hours from our mid-state permanent home.

Margret Cornell purchased this mobile home in 2000

Why Margret Cornell chose Chokoloskee

America's warm weather wilderness. Located at the very southern tip of the state, among Everglades National Park in the calm marine environment. Alligators don't exist in this marine type location, just birds and fish.

Family friendly. Lots of room.

Three bedrooms, 2 baths, large dining, living, and kitchen. the unit has two queen beds in separate rooms and a twin bunk bed with an extra futon in the 3rd room. Three adults or 2 couples sleeping together and the futon with bunks bedroom. More? I'd suggest co-renting with Parkway Motel (trailers, cottage, and rooms) that's just steps from our place. Contact Bill and see what he can offer. The website is

What makes this mobile home unique

Always warm and mostly sunny. Last tropical undeveloped area in South Florida. Next to Everglades National Park and historic Everglade City. 1/2 hour commute to golf, the Beaches of Marco Island, Naples luxury shopping, 1 1/2 hr by car to the world famous party scene of Miami/South Beach and Key West (via Marco Is. ferry).

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We had a great time in Chokoloskee! The house was perfect, we tried to leave it in as good shape as we found it..."

"We were quite successful with our fishing, getting snook, redfish, trout, sheepshead, grouper, ladyfish, and snapper. Luckily I didn't hit any oyster bars and only got stuck in the mud twice. What a wild place, It was exactly what I was looking for, and I look forward to another excursion."

Thanks again,

Comfortable home and great location to experience Chokoloskee

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to Chokoloskee. We primarily fish and explore. This property offers a great location near the marina in a quiet neighborhood. The accommodations were perfect for the three of us for the week, and is outfitted to handle a much larger group. The owner is accessible and very helpful. The local restaurants are all great, and the small store in Everglades City has a decent offering of basic necessities.

A great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 4 days here and had a great time vising Big Cypress Reserve and the Everglades! This property on Chokoloskee Island is comfortable, clean, neat, has a well-equipped kitchen, with wifi and smart TV. The owner is extremely helpful, informative and accessible. I would recommend staying here to anyone who wants to visit this unique part of Florida!

Spacious, clean accomodations in Chokoloskee

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I very much enjoyed our stay at "Big Blue" on Chokoloskee in the Everglades. The trailer was very spacious and clean, with a great kitchen, very nice porch and amenities that most rentals don't offer. Our host, Walter, was so welcoming and accommodating. We will definitely plan a return visit.
