We both grew up in the North East and have lived in Florida for 6 years. We live and work in Bonita Springs but love to get away to Goodland on the weekends.

Amy Adams purchased this house in 2012

We decided to buy in Goodland because we love the rustic feel of the island. Once you stay at this house you will want to come back year after year. Someday this will be where we retire.

The day we first looked at the house, we fell in love as dolphins swam 10 feet away from the house. This home sits on a cul-de-sac and overlooks beautiful water and mangroves. The only sounds you hear are the osprey, dolphins, and quite puttering of boats going by.

Many thanks to David & Amy for this picturesque & peaceful location on Goodland's waterfront. The comfortable, split level, house sits on a quiet court about a 10 minute walk from Goodland's restaurants-bars and is equipped with fast internet. We didn't cook much but the kitchen has plenty of cooking utensils and a large outdoor grill. Sliding glass doors in the living and dining room areas let you view the water from inside and open to separate outdoor sitting spaces with lots of sun. Most of our time was spent on the relaxing porch enjoying the scenery of boaters traveling back & forth, seagulls flying overhead, pelicans gliding across the water, and the daily presence of dolphins swimming nearby, one creating a magical moment when it jumped high out of the water on one particular morning. Twice, large dark underwater bodies swam through the waterway but were too far away to positively identify them as manatees. We, also, kept an eye on two eagles protecting and carrying fish to their baby in its treetop nest behind the lovely house across the water.

It's a short drive to Marco Island from Goodland but even Naples isn't far, approx. a half hour. One concern, and I'm not sure if the upstairs level is rented on a regular basis, but when people are upstairs, their footsteps are rather noisy. Fortunately, this only happened on our last day so it wasn't a real problem for us. Overall, our week was near perfect... just over too soon.

I would definitely recommend this property and hope to go back again!

The listing was accurate and the property was clean and comfortable. The owner responds almost immediately to questions and/or concerns and addresses them even though they are several hours away. I would definitely recommend this property to my friends and family. We spent many hours on the deck watching boats leaving the marina, dolphins ( a daily event), and watching beautiful sunsets. Even the neighbors were friendly and helpful. The only downside is there is very little to do in Goodland. It is a very quiet little town although it has excellent restaurants and good local seafood. We will definitely return and after a very cold February wish we would have stayed longer!!

The house was very clean, private with a wonderful view. Bedrooms are spacious, never had to use the AC the breeze was so wonderful. Dolphins and a manatee swam by daily. We will bring our boat next time, beautiful public boat slip and facility at the end of the street. We will definately be back. Owners are thoughtful and available if you need them, we did not.

Recognize that you are only renting the downstairs, which is why it is only a one bedroom. Porpoises swam within 30 ft. of the seawall. Very clean; fully furnished. Goodland has none of the congestion or confusion of Marco. You MUST go to Little Bar.

Place was exactly as pictured. Clean, comfortable and located in a quiet neighborhood. We found the waterway in front to be a constant source of interest. Wildlife was everywhere, boat traffic was non-stop( very quiet due to the manatee zone), fish jumping, dolphins swimming by several times a day, manatees going by, all wonders for a Mainer.
Entertainment is nearby, walking distance to Sunday gatherings at Stans which were great. Another good restaurant was next door.
Calusa Island was 1/2 mile drive away. Can charter fishing boats there. Can fish in front of house or walk to Goodland Boat Park next door for a pier to fish from.
Entertaining, relaxing, and care free. Amy answers all questions quickly, don't be afraid to ask, we did.
Stock up, if possible, before arriving. No store in Goodland. Nearest complete shopping in 12-13 miles away.
Sit back, enjoy the sun, don't bring many warm clothes.
Owner's Response: Thank you Jim and Rhoda. We are so happy that you enjoyed our home as much as we do! Seeing the dolphins and manatees never gets old to us. The only thing I wanted to add to your review is that the grocery store is only 2 miles from the house. There is a Publix, Subway, Burger King, Ace Hardware, and Dollar Store two miles away. Any other shopping is probably about 12-13 miles away. Thank you again for staying with us and we hope to see you again in the future.

The tiny community of Goodland offers visitors laid back charm unlike any other place in the region. This sleepy fishing village changes drastically on Sundays when hundreds of residents and visitors make the pilgrimage to Stan's for outdoor music, drinks, and dancing!
