|Minimum Stay||3 - 6 nights|
The Island Girl is just a few feet off the beautiful water of Goodland Bay. Open all the sliders and you can hear the dolphins swimming! If you want to get away from it all and still be close to all the conveniences of Marco Island, then you must check out Goodland. There are 5 restaurants right on the island that you can walk to. The beaches are only a 15 minute drive. It's the perfect place to find serenity.
Both Dave and I grew up in the North East. We moved to Bonita Springs about 10 years ago. We have a beautiful 5 year old daughter named Ava. We are a busy family and both have a passion for real estate. We have two vacation rentals at this point- the other is in Bonita Beach, FL.
Amy Adams purchased this apartment in 2011
We fell in love with the charm of Goodland. It's a step back in time. The people on the island are the salt of the earth and so genuine. The first time we saw the house, there were dolphins swimming about 10 feet away from our sea wall! I said, "We'll take it!" LOL. And we did.
This Home Sits On A Cul-de-sac on 155 ft of waterfront And Overlooks Beautiful Water And Mangroves. You Can Open All The Sliders In The Living Room And Bring The Outside In. The Only Sounds You Hear Are The Osprey, Dolphins, And Quite Puttering Of Boats Going By.
Our family had the most wonderful vacation! We immediately felt right at home in this spacious, beautifully decorated island home. The furniture was so comfy, and the views from the back balcony are absolutely amazing. I spent most of my time sitting on the balcony enjoying the view and sounds of wildlife. We spotted an owl in the neighbor's tree two mornings in a row! We went on a wonderful boat trip that launched down the street at the marina and saw manatees, dolphins, and we went shelling on a private beach. Naples is just a short drive away and we were able to enjoy the Naples Zoo and the beaches. We were able to please our two teenage daughters, as they enjoyed being so close to nature without all the city noise. Looking forward to our next stay at the Island Girl! Thank you, Amy and Dave, for making us feel so at home and sharing your hidden oasis with us!
Thanks for allowing our family to enjoy your little slice of heaven for a birthday weekend! It was wonderful! The Island Girl suited us to a T with an awesome location and beautiful views! The apartment is spacious and had all the amenities we could possibly need. We especially enjoyed using the kayaks. We hope to be able to come again and stay longer the next time. And I have already given the link for your VRBO listing to three friends who were interested in staying in Goodland in the near future. Thanks again for allowing us to enjoy The Island Girl!
I write this review with really mixed feelings, because we loved our stay at the Island Girl so much that we kind of don't want anyone else to know about it...but since Amy and Dave are officially the best landlords ever, we're doing it for them, as a way of saying thank you. Everything about this place way exceeded our expectations: the location, the comfort, the cleanliness...you name it! We just loved being with walking distance of the boat launch at the marina, and then if Jerry decided he wanted to stay out a little while longer fishing, all he had to do was pull the boat up alongside the house and let me know! It was extra special to be able to sit in the sun out on the lovely deck and then walk just a few paces to relax in front of the Tour de France or Wimbledon on the tv. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook family dinners, the water pressure was great, the AC worked well...even the weather cooperated! We are so excited that this peaceful place is just down the road from our home in Naples, and we can't wait for our next trip down. Thank you so much, Amy and Dave, for sharing your special Island Girl with us!
Panoramic water views. Loads of osprey nest activity nearby. I loved sitting outside over the water, it was like being on the top deck of a boathouse. Immaculate, soothing decor, comfortable, well-appointed. Good value. I'd recommend this place to anyone, anytime.
I just wanted to cry when it was time to leave. And I normally don't cry! The view was over the top. You are literally right over the water. The wrap around balcony is directly over the water so you experience the tides and hear the gentle lapping of the surf. The view is panoramic. I did not realize how amazing the view would be from the pictures. I made sure I was up early to experience the sunrise and was around for the sunset because you can experience both from the deck or inside living areas as the sliding glass doors are wrapped around also. It's so quiet! Not once did we use the TV or radio because we did not want to disturb the peace we felt. There was an osprey nest across the way with baby birds. We would hear them demanding their breakfast when they woke and silence when their parents fed them.That's better than any TV program. We enjoyed biking the island as there are few cars and mostly golf carts. Every single person waved at us. We could not get over how friendly they are. I have never seen anything like it. I guess that's island life! Who knew! The restaurants are just a short walk away and serve great seafood in a fun tropical setting. The house itself is roomy, open and comfortable. Totally updated and CLEAN! I love the colors and tropical decor. I love the decorator's taste. The price is cheap for what you get- but don't tell the owners! Its' Like I said we did not want to leave. Best week ever.
