First I want to tell this is my first time in south Florida. I visit Florida twice every year but always north. This is first time we went south. I not sure if I must make review because it will make me competitors for my next visits there and will be harder find open days, but experience what I have I must share. We meat best people there, Ahmed and Kathy - owners of this beautiful house! Very nice people, very helpful and friendly. They take care of us even before we get there with so much information, directions, phone calls, etc. I felt like special guest in 5 star resort. Our adventure started even before we met house owners because place where we met was very nice restaurant, right on bay channel with very delicious food, cold beer and wine. Very nice after almost 18 hours in a car. Owner of restaurant and all people who work there knows Ahmed and Kathy and will take care of you as special guests! Also owner of restaurant not ordinary person, she is famous.
Trip to Keewaydin island:
I was very surprised when 3 boats meet us and people loaded all our baggage and stuff. They took everything on island in safe condition. When we get on island everything was unloaded and ready. Even my 14' ocean kayak was delivered there. You will have very nice trip to island looking on millions $ property, boats and beautiful bay. Owners will introduce you everything including: maps, rules, directions, tips, etc.
I rent property in Florida almost twice every year and owners always say they have everything for leaving. This time was same thing, but difference they do mean EVERYTHING! From batteries, emergency water, bugs sprays, flash lights, garbage bags and towels to many umbrellas, chairs, water toys, kayaks, stand up boards, golf cart, grills, snorkeling equipment, fishing gear. You need only drinks and food, they provide everything you can imaging!
I have only about 3000 characters to write review, it is nothing to describe Yellowbird, you can write book about it. I wish I can upload my pictures. We catch so much fish from Snook and Grooper to Jack and sharks, right from house pier, met dozens different animals on island, swim, have fun and relax. And all on private island, when you on beach no one around miles away, everything yours! We have 7 people in house but it can hold much more. 4 private bedrooms and about 7 toilets in a house.
If you looking for own private house and beach - this is all you need!
