Overview

About the property

Direct Ocean Front. Sugar White Sand, Shelling, Stand Up Paddleboards, Fishing

Your own, brand-new, elegant and luxurious one-level beach house on Keewaydin Island, called KeeIsland, is nestled in greenery, with a clear view of the white sugar sand beach and sparkling blue water just twenty yards away from windows and openings towards the sea which are practically wall-to-wall, verandahs and balconies.

Stroll or jog along the secluded beach at your leisure. Relax on beach chairs and watch the friendly small rollers coming in at sunrise or sunset. Do some beachcombing or take in a paddle with the provided Stand Up Paddleboards.

Swim or snorkel in the clear, warm waters. Learn how to paddleboard or windsurf!

Birds soar overhead or nest in the surrounding trees. Dolphins and manatees frolic in the water just steps away.

You’ll feel as if you’re on your own private island, but if you feel in the need for company you can take the motorboat over to Naples or one of the other surrounding islands to take in the a lunch or grocery shop there.

KeeIsland has three spacious bedrooms and extra sleeping spaces, so there’s plenty of room for up to nine people to enjoy this peaceful island paradise.

About Keewaydin Island:

Keewaydin Island is an eight-mile long barrier island off the coast of Naples, with only 13 private homes on the whole island!

There are no roads on the island and no cars. You’ll be in your own private world– but there’s plenty to do if you love swimming, paddle boarding, beachcombing or just taking it easy and enjoying beautiful sunrises and sunsets.

You can also enjoy the beauty of the protected natural preserve of Rockery Bay, which surrounds us and features bays and mangrove forests. Check out the beauty of Rockery Bay at their website: www.rookerybay.org/.

About KeeIsland House

The oceanfront estate of KeeIsland is surrounded by lush greenery and a great view of the sugar white sand beach and brilliant blue water of the bay. If you’re a bird watcher you’ll be in heaven, and if you love ocean-watching for the chance to see manatees or dolphins, this is the place for you

KeeIsland House is a brand-new home built to the highest specifications for “green” living that is also luxurious living.

This 3,000 square-foot luxury beach home, fully furnished, is entirely powered by state-of-the-art solar panels. You are completely off-grid here, but rest assured you’ll never notice the difference from on-grid living!

As you wait for dinner, relax and chat with your friends in the completely screened-in outdoor patio. From the patio you can see the trees and the oceanscape beyond. There’s also a patio off the Master Bedroom.

All of the patio area features twelve-foot high ceilings and the living room area has plate-glass windows that are practically wall-to-wall. There’s air-conditioning in summer and heating in winter, of course.

The bedrooms come equipped with big-screen TVs. Browse the web on your computer with lightning-like speed thanks to 2 high speed sattelite internet.

Each bedroom has an en-suite bathroom. The master bathroom is rather special – there’s an outdoor tub and separate outdoor shower area (don’t worry – there’s no one around but you and your guests!) and spectacular scenery to enjoy while you bathe.

At breakfast, lunch or dinner time the delicious aromas will waft to you from the open kitchen.

In the kitchen, the refrigerator, microwave oven and accutrements are all top of the line, as are the blender, toaster and coffee maker. There’s a washer and dryer in the utility room also.

About Espen P Schiefloe

Sunny Lane LLC is a family owned Florida company dedicated to top tier guest experiences in a beach front stay.

Espen P Schiefloe purchased this house in 2010

Why Espen P Schiefloe chose Naples

Florida has an abundance of beautiful beaches, waterways, cities and attractions...yet the critical eye and more experienced you get with south Florida, the south west gulf coast city of Naples is as nice as it gets. Then you take it one step further and the 7 mile long barrier island south of Naples is practically undeveloped. so instead of your gulf front home costing 12+ million (starter Naples gulf front home) you have an even nicer gulf front home location with unbeatable natural features of your boat and bay on the back side and essentially a private beach..

What makes this house unique

Its really about the experience...Here, you get to get back to nature, see some wild life, have space to feel your soul breathe and expand...to feel that you are one with a tropical paradise...you wont get that in town...

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful week in a beatiful home by the Sea. Our visit far exceeded our expectations. Espen has thought of everything to make your visit first class in every way. Nine of us visited you house in October of 2015. What a trip! We enjoyed being "Off the grid" with first class amenities. We enjoyed cooking breakfast as the sun came up. We enjoyed daily trips on the boat to the point of keewaydin, catching fish at mid night off the bech, catching a dozen different fish every day. cooking woderful dinners in the evening and wathcing unbelievable sunsets each night. Trips to the isle of Capri, Fish House for Gruebens made a great lunch. Thank you Espen for your vision and for creating a wonderful first class vacation home that you share with your guests. We really enjoyed ourselves and look forward to returning soon. The M..... Thank You!!!!!

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Had another beautiful stay on Keewaydin at this lovely home. Brought ice, drinks, some -pre-made meals and clothes. Ate out by boat at the Snook Inn and Tavern on the Bay. Did cocktails one night at the Island Gypsy. Enjoyed the wildlife………tortoise, manatee, dolphins, and shelling. My kids favorite vacation by far.

Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5

We traveled with our 3 kids and 2 of their friends all between 8-15. We also brought our 5lb Havanese dog at the last minute. The house was amazing. The boat was so much fun. Everything you could ever imagine was there from beach gear, Games, Toys, tools, Fishing and More. We woke up every morning and gathered shells after sunrise. We saw dolphins in the channel as well as right in front of our beach everyday. Can't wait to go back and would absolutely refer this to anyone interested whether small or large group.

Naples Family Spring Break Vacation,Tropical Natural Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We came across this property on Homeaway last year and instantly fell in love. It is even much nicer in person, its hard to describe how beautiful the vegetation and beach and clear blue/green water are.

Shawn and Gretchen were very helpful and the house well stocked.

Make sure you book your stay early as we noticed the prime weeks booked up a year in advance. We learned that this is one of only two beach houses that are right on the water in Naples.

The house itself is luxurious with high speed wi-fi and sattelite tv. Every creature comfort is available and they have thought of everything,. My husband enjoyed the provided fishing equipment and kids loved all the water toys especially the Stand Up Paddleboards.

Spectacular Property!! Perfect for families

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 (2 adults and kids age 11 and 8) and my best friend's family of 4 (2 adults and kids age 6 and 3) thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our spectacular spring break. The house is out of a movie, very well appointed with everything you need. Between the stand up paddle boarding, boogie boarding and just plain old relaxing this was the best trip ever with the family. The house has beautiful common areas and in extremely good shape. The outdoor shower was unique and lovely. The one criticism is that the beds were extremely soft, hopefully an easy issue to fix. The boat was a very cool mode of transportation and we discovered many neat things in the back channels- porpoises jumping in the wake!! Even though my friend and I are surgeons, learning to dock a boat was as challenging as med school but we are happy to say that with the instructions before and learning from Shawn we did not get lost or hit anything or anyone. I hope to be able to come back to this beautiful property with the kids next year!

Owner's Response: So happy to share this special place with you! This year we intend to replace a couple of the beds, it seems people love the gel foam variety instead of the old school plush pillow tops we have a few of. Personal preference I suppose. We similiarily like to have a variety of different pillow typs for side and back sleepers. Gel and down etc. Obviously the incredible beach and scenery and grounds steal the show and we love how the actual experience always brings such joy to our guests. Every single guest upon departure always has such kind words and that really makes us happy to share!

Adventurous but luxurious!

Unique Beach Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for opening your incredible home to my family again. Keewaydin is a True vacation! It is nice to leave work back in Georgia and spend time with family and Friends. Being able to walk on a beach and see wildlife instead of a sea of people is wonderful!

We enjoy talking out on the Front Deck at night and walking down to see some of the most breathtaking sunsets.

We are so happy we found this place and look forward to visiting again next summer!

Thank you,

Russ and Family & Friends

Top 10 Florida Beach
Car: not necessary

The south west gulf coast of Florida is world renowned for its white powder sugar sand beaches, safe and warm and calm water for swimming make the water accessable to everyone. Keewaydin Island itself is considered to be one of Americas top 10 most beautiful beaches and considering you have several acres of it to your self, most of the pleasure will be in activities surrounding your beach front home. From shelling, to walking, swimming, stand up paddle boarding, boating, fishing, having your bare feet on the sand, taking in the salt sea air and the abundant nature that surrounds you. Your stay here is about nature and access to the island is by BOAT only. 40 Years ago, the environmental movement finally said enough already and stopped a planned bridge and road to the island. So this is where development in Florida stops. It's as if the entire state of Florida is paved over and then you come to the end of the road at beautiful Naples and across Gordon pass lies a natural paradise, keewaydin Island.

If you have fisherman or woman in your group, its tough to beat the fishing right off the beach (there is a great sand bar just off shore) and then the dock side has the best snook fishing anywhere.

There are more places to explore then you can imagine. An easy trip is to good land, with a couple of bars and live music. Marco Island and Naples in either direction offer plenty of places to explore.

If you want some fine dining and shopping, water parks and so forth, venturing out to Naples and Marco Island opens up other possibilities. First and foremost, great shopping and dining. Naples is a haven for wealthy retirees, and therefore you can expect the top world class dining, shopping and golfing. Two recomended in town adventures are the Botanical gardens and the Zoo. Either one is a 15 minitue drives from our marina in town.

Within Naples, we have a whole foods, trader joes and a couple organic markets. Our favorite organic market, food and thought, happens to be where we go frequently to dine for lunch, grab some organic food and head out to the island. That concludes our in town Naples suggestions.

Very often, we charachterize this island beach house experience as a place to for a wonderful peaceful escape...a place to hang out with family and friends....a time to relax..

A typical stay for our guests starts with a grocery store shop for several days. The house has all the staples already, such as spices, drinking water, towels etc. you only need to plan your meals and bring the fresh whole foods with you.

Arriving at our check in time at 3 pm. our representative loads your groceries and lugguge on to the boat. You can park and leave your car there free of charge for the week.

Once aboard, the 45 minute scenic boat ride follows navigation makers south through Naples bay, down the intercoastal water way for approximately 5-6 miles. Then you arrive on our bayside dock. We show you how to tie up the boat, bring your luggage and groceries to the house and orientate you with the home and answer any questions you have. This is the fun part because at this point your in awe at how beautful it is and how happy you are to have your own island and private beach.

We call this adventure our tropical dream...As it combines the absolute very best that Florida has to offer. From the most beautiful waters and beaches and nature and wild life...you leave concrete and mayhem behind and enter paradise...Its what the salt air and warm sun and the entire environment surrounding you bathes your soul...
