About Alex and Jenya Menkhaus

I am an avid outdoorsman, fly fisherman and photographer. I have a great passion for the Florida outdoors where I grew up diving, fishing, and hunting while trying to capture as much of it as I could on film. After high school, I went to pursue an engineering degree at Virginia Tech and upon graduation began working as a field engineer for an oilfield service company. I have worked in various locations throughout the world and currently reside in Houston, TX but home always remains south Florida to me.

Why Alex and Jenya Menkhaus chose Florida South Gulf Coast

I first began coming to Port of the Islands when I was a teenager with a friend who's family has a condo there. We would go as a weekend getaway and fish the back bays and islands of the 10,000 islands and Everglades National Park. I immediately fell in love with the area. I began coming on my own with a kayak or canoe and finding my own trails through the backcountry and mangrove tunnels and exploring places raw and beautiful. For being so close to the hustle and bustle of southeast Florida where we lived, it felt like we were a world away. As I grew older I began working as a field engineer in various locations throughout the world. Working on a rotation allowed me to work for several months and then take a few weeks or a month off until the next project. I was able to live in the location of my choice during my time off and decided that Port of the Islands was the perfect place where I could be within easy reach of the ammenities of Naples, but just far enough outside to enjoy the open space and outdoors of natural Florida.

What makes this condo unique

The unique benefits of this property are definitely in the surroundings. From the back patio the western view of the mangrove lined river and small creeks during sunset are fantastic. The ability to walk out from the back patio and straight down to the floating dock was a huge seller over other properties in the community.

The condo is nice, the view is amazing. You will see a lot of wildlife, dolphin in the canal, birds and mullet jumping out of the water. The owners wants you to have a good time in their cozy condo. We had a wonderful time in Port of the Islands, fishing, hiking, kayaking and boating. Good neighbors as well.

The property is located in Port of the Islands, which is a waterfront community located about 20 minutes south of Naples and Marco Island and 20 minutes north of Everglades City. The community contains a marina with bait and tackle shop and boat launch. Manatee tours and fishing guides are available through the marina and airboat rides/eco-tours are available nearby the community. For the outdoors enthusiast, Fakahatchee Strand, Big Cypress National Preserve, the 10,000 islands, and Everglades National Park offer fantastic trails for hiking, kayaking, boating, and fishing all within minutes away. Just across US41, Port of the Islands gun club offers trap, skeet, and sporting clays for the shooting enthusiast. Several golf courses are also within close proximity on US41. Twenty five minutes north of the property, in the heart of downtown Naples are the numerous restaurants, bars, and upscale shopping of Fifth Avenue, while twenty minutes south of the property, Everglades City and Chokoloskee offer the charm of old Florida. This property is perfect for those looking to retreat to a quiet, peaceful location while still within the reach of the ammenities of nearby Naples.

Personal nearby favorites include kayaking through the mangrove tunnels into East River and Fakahatchee bay, walking the Big Cypress Bend Boardwalk, visiting Clyde Butcher's Gallery, fly fishing the backwaters of the 10,000 islands, taking the Key West Express from Marco Island for a day trip, photography in the Fakahatchee Strand State Preserve Park and enjoying the fine dining on Fifth Avenue.
