About the property

Imagine staying in a beach house on your own private barrier island in Naples

This new, elegant and luxurious one-level beach house on Keewaydin Island, called KeeIsland.com, is nestled in greenery, with a clear view of the white sugar sand beach and sparkling blue water just twenty yards away from the homes expansive openings which are practically wall-to-wall. 1,200 square feet of screened in verandahs and balconies puntuate a spacious home and offers indoor/outdoor beach living.

Stroll or jog along the secluded beach at your leisure. Relax on beach chairs and watch the sall gulf of Florida rollers coming in at sunrise or sunset. Do some beachcombing or play beach volleyball. Swim or snorkel in the clear, warm waters. Learn how to paddleboard or windsurf with the included gear! Go fishing with the included recreational fishing gear.

Birds soar overhead or nest in the surrounding trees. Dolphins and manatees frolic in both the bay behind the house and in front of you in the gulf.

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 Marco Island to take in a lunch on the bay or stock up on groceries at Winn Dixie.

KeeIsland has three spacious bedrooms and a sleeping area with additional bunk beds, 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, fishing or lounging on the beach 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 features bays and mangrove forests. It’s surrounds completely keeisland and its the reason we have an abundance of wildlife and nature surrounding us. Check out the beauty of Rockery Bay at their website: www.rookerybay.org/.

About KeeIsland House:

The oceanfront estate of KeeIsland.com 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 which features a soaking tub and outdoor shower.

All of the expansive patio areas have 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 our high speed sattelite internet.

Each bedroom has an en-suite bathroom. The master bathroom is rather special – there’s an outdoor tub and 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.


All amenities are provided, from luxurious linens for the bedrooms to towels and soaps for the bathrooms.

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

All silverware and plateware are provided, and you’ll arrive to a fully stocked pantry.

A motorboat is definitely an amenity when you’re on an island. The rental of the boat and a full tank of gas is included in the quote for the price of your stay. You’ll also find paddleboats and fishing gear which are easy to use and tons of fun.

How You’ll Get to Keeisland House

There is no bridge from the mainland, so we will take you and your entire party and luggage to KeeIsland House via boat, which is a trip of only 20-40 minutes.

We’ll also be back to pick you up at the end of your stay.

You won’t be marooned, of course. There’s a motorboat at the KeeIsland House dock which is easy to use, and maps to take you to the surrounding islands such as Marco Island or into the town and Bay of Naples.

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!!!!!

Truly unique property - glad we found it

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Keeisland last fall and were amazed at our find. This is a unique property designed for a certain type of trip. For example, if the idea of staying on a secluded Caribbean island in a tropical peaceful villa without having to leave the United State is appealing to you, then you should consider this property. On the other hand, if you want to experience a commercialized, touristy chain hotel packed on a beach with strangers sitting two feet apart smoking and drinking and eating three overpriced unhealthy meals a day in hotel restaurants, then don’t bother. We encountered no one the entire week we were there. We walked the beach everyday in solitude. We live in a city so the quiet we experienced was priceless. We practically spent the whole time on the giant screened in porch and grilled everyday. For the outdoors type, there are many things to do and for those into wildlife and nature, you can explore endlessly. Hanging around the house we encountered deer, armadillos and turtles. I’m sure if we tried harder, we would have seen even more. Relaxation with a capital R is the primary attraction of this property. The home was very clean and had everything we needed. The amenities such as the shower, tub and screened in porches were great. The staff was fantastic and the owner was great with communication. We will return in the future.

Incredible property and beach location; this is a truly special place.

  • 5 of 5

The location on a white sand beach was unreal. Calm and warm gulf seas and the house was impeccable. A beautiful screened in dining and living room and fantastic kitchen. The beds were super comfortable and the trip is one of my families favourites.

My family and I just came back from a very peaceful week at this beautiful property. I can't express our gratitude enough to the welcoming and attentive caretakers Shawn, Gretchen and Garrett who make the place run so smoothly. I believe the place wouldn't be as inviting without the three of them looking over it, seeing to all of a visitor's needs and comforts.

The beach is beautiful, calming and private with the surrounding nature just as peaceful. The house itself is accurately described and as photographed, being well equipped and VERY clean.

Thank you very much Shawn, Gretchen and Garrett for a wonderful vacation.

Wonderful, relaxing, peaceful beach vacation on what felt like our own private island!

  • 5 of 5

Propert manager Shawn picked us up in the boat at the marina. The entire boat ride over to the island, Shawn briefed us on all aspects of the house, island, boat and all other important info. Very good and thorough use of the time in the boat.

Upon arrival at the house's private dock, Garret and Espen welcomed us as they were all on the island doing some work around the house that morning. While Garret transported our luggage and groceries to house, Shawn and Gretchen gave us the walk-through. Again, very thorough and informative.

The house is awesome!! Just like a beach house you'd see in the movies, tucked away in the palm trees and vegetation behind a slight wind-break sand dune.

The beach was practically deserted! As far as we could tell, there was only one other house occupied. It was the very adjacent house, but they are spaced far apart, and they were far enough down the beach that we practically didn't even notice them.

As per Shawn and Gretchen's advice, in an effort to keep the heat out of the house, we cooked almost all meals on the outside grill using either the grate or the cast-iron skillets. It worked out great!!!

Speaking of food, I highly suggest sticking with their recommendation of Wynn's Market for seafood and steaks/meat. It's a bit pricey, but the seafood was fresh, the selection was awesome and the people there were incredibly nice!

It is totally worth noting how kind and accommodating the entire crew were. We traveled with my wife and two daughters, and my wife's parents. Our 3 year old has special needs and has some sensory sensitivities including auditory sensitivities. She gets very frightened by, and cannot process certain noises - especially loud, unfamiliar noises. This is the first time we have taken her on a vacation - first time on a plane, first time on a boat. We were extreme nervous how she would react to the sounds. We explained this ahead of time to Shawn. Shawn was so careful with the boat and how fast he was going. He kept looking to see how our daughter was reacting before he would - very slowly and gradually - accelerate the engine of the boat. It was very noticeable how much attention he took to making sure she was okay and comfortable. He was so careful with gradually introducing her to the sound and feel of the engine that she soon fell asleep for almost the entire boat ride out.

Garret drove us back at the end of the week. He was just as careful and thoughtful as Shawn. Thank you all very much!!

Car: not necessary

With several acres to your self directly on the gulf, with a luxury beach home, most of your activities are likely to be centered around beach activities and exploring. The immediate area surrounding the house is referred to as essentially a nature preserve, see: (www.rookerybay.org/)

So now that we have you out on the island, its the sky, the clouds, the warm air, the wind and rain and wildlife that enthrall your senses. Living in flip flops or bare feet, grounds you to the earth. It's the daily one or two walks along the beach followed by some sea shell harvesting that will fill your soul with salt sea air. If you've got busy bee's with you, set them loose on fishing from the beach, off the pier or on the boat. Paddle board on our two Stand Up paddle boards around the mangrove islands or along the gulf.

Take the boat to Marco island or just south of it and see the ten thousand islands.
