Beachfront home in your own secluded Tropical Paradise -- 30 minutes by boat from Naples or Marco Island. 20' Hurricane Deck Boat is provided for use of guests, at no extra charge, you simply pay for your gas. Or bring your own boat. You can fish, swim, relax, and recharge on the island all week.

Key West style 3 story home features screened deck gathering area on ground floor, with wet bar and bathroom, as well as discrete shower to rinse off sand from the beach. Second floor offers 4 private, comfortable bedroom suites with a/c and private screened terrace. 3 king beds, 1 full bed. Third floor Great Room boasts cathedral ceilings, full kitchen, all appliances, large pass-through kitchen window opening up to a spacious open deck with a to-die-for panoramic view of the Gulf of Mexico. Screened outdoor dining area. This is a wonderful place to have your meals and be mesmerized by the soft breezes and gentle surf, and to be awed by one glorious sunset after another. Another full bath here. AC/TV/DVD/Cellular/Wi-Fi (Check email. Surf the Web. Not for live streaming movies, music, games, etc)

The house is off the grid, so you are completely self-sufficient. Solar power with backup generator, ample rainwater, filtered and UV'd for your use (not drinkable, you would need to bring bottled water for drinking and cooking. Gas grill for outdoor cookouts. The house sits on 2+ acres of pristine mangrove forest and natural island flora, with the beach on one side and the deep-water bay on the other. You have your own dock, where you will park your boat, and an electric golf cart at your service.

Keewaydin Island is accessible only by boat, and it forms part of Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve. It is an 8 mile long barrier island, just off the coast of Naples, between Gordon Pass and Marco Island, with a peaceful, unspoiled white sugar sand beach. Sunshine, gulf beaches, blue skies, fresh air and peace and quiet abound. If you need a break from the mad pace of urban living today...a week of relaxing at Yellowbird may be your perfect rejuvenator.

Wildlife is abundant, including dolphins, manatees, key deer, armadillos, and many osprey nests with fledglings being cared from by doting parents. Keewaydin is a migration stopover for 150 different species of interesting birds on their way North or South, and many who live here year-round, including eagles, pelicans, and the gorgeous large pink roseate spoonbills. If you are ever fortunate enough to see one fly over you, I guarantee your heart will stop.

This is a great place to unwind. You can swim and sun, walk and talk, boogie-board or stand-up paddleboard, go kayaking, collect shells on the beach, fish from dock, boat or beach, read, write, relax and re-connect with your yourself and your loved ones, and with the beauty of nature. And yet you are only 30 minutes from civilization and its benefits, if you want it or need it.

It's not too good to be true.
It's here...waiting for you.
