A back ground in resort real estate development, Espen has a love for the tropical dream...boats...water...sunshine....and having been spoiled by the worlds greatest hotels, resorts and homes...incorporated all that he has learned about what creates the best tropical experience...

Espen Schiefloe purchased this house in 2010

Florida has an abundance of beautiful beaches, waterways, cities and attractions...yet the critical eye and more experienced you get with south Florida, the south west gulf coast city of Naples is as nice as it gets. Then you take it one step further and the 7 mile long barrier island south of Naples is practically undeveloped. so instead of your gulf front home costing 12+ million (starter Naples gulf front home) you have an even nicer gulf front home location with unbeatable natural features of your boat and bay on the back side and essentially a private beach..

Its really about the experience...Here, you get to get back to nature, see some wild life, have space to feel your soul breathe and expand...to feel that you are one with a tropical paradise...you wont get that in town...

We were not disappointed. Espen was very responsive and helpful. Mike was friendly and most accommodating. The home and location surpassed anything we have ever experienced. The beach and shelling fantastic. The bed was extremely comfortable. We loved the wildlife and numerous things to do. We did get close to the dolphins but regrettably didn't actually get close enough to play with them. We were really hoping to come back time and again but cannot afford the steep increase in rent. Thanks for the great memories.
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for coming for three weeks all the way from Canada!
We have recencly made even more improvements, most significantly, going from two bed two bath to three bedroom three baths. Many of the guests currently staying, booked last year, prior to these improvements and got the latter from free. We strive for high occupancy by providing a bargain value for the guest, but we appreciate that with an evolving now larger island house, our rates for this now larger three bedroom house, espeically for those whom experienced renting it when it was smaller and slightly lower price, even more so, for the ones that want to come for multiple weeks. We will continue to improve the product so as to do as much as we can to provide the highest value and best guest experience possible.
We are really very greatful for all the guests whom come to keeisland.com and wish that everyone of them will come back to stay in our bit of island paradise again and again.
With much gratitude!
Espen

Best Vacation Family Ever Had

  • Submitted: Apr 12, 2014
  • Stayed: Sep 2013
We found your listing on homeaway.com while searching for a home to rent in Naples. We were initially intrigued and based on the wonderful reviews decided to plunge ahead.
Well were we in for a pleasant surprise! Photos dont do justice the absolute incredible surroundings and beautifully furnished home.
Thank you Espen and Mike and Sandra for your attention to detail.
We had a few questions for Mike and he was great and answered our call. Turns out we can fish, we caught the biggest inshore fishes we have ever caught in Florida right off the beach in front of the house and on the dock and right around the corner on the boat.
The house is truly amazing. We cant imagine a nicer beach house anywhere.
While we were here, we swam with a pod of dolphins, we explored so many fun places on the boat. We especially liked the complete privacy and essentially haveing a beach to our selves. As we say only a few other people down the beach on the weekend. It was incredible!
From what our research showed, this is the nicest house on the island.
We cant say enough about the experience we had. We hope we can come back every year. We almost felt like we should not add to the hype about the property and experience of this stay just so it does not get more popular, but we are so greatful for the thoughtful hospitality and job the owners and there representatives have done to maintaine and design and clean each week. That we just had to write this note in the guest book, please feel free to post it on behalf of our entire family.
Our parents from Naples joined us for a few days and they were so over the top impressed. The said they never had such a great memory of being with eveyrone in one such beautiful place.
Many thanks Espen for sharing your beautiful home with us.

Wildlife seen:
Armidillo
Woodpeckers
Black Pigs
Dolphins
Red bird
Looks like a cardinal and a very perculiar habit of banging against the back bedroom window in the mornning, every day.
Scared us at first, but then it continued each day.
Sea shells are amazing, absolutely beautful. Fished in the gulf from shore and caught sheepshead fish, cat fish, pompano and black drum. Even grilled the pompano and black drum on the grille. Very good!
Really enjoyed our week!

We are so lucky to be here

On our first day, we went out into the gulf and were surrounded by dolphins whom let us touch them and play with them for an hour. We found out later apparently you are not supposed to touch dolphins, but in fareness they came to us! It was the best experience for our small sons ages 5 and 6 and 10. Sea Shells are amazing!
Espen sure does know how to build a sanctuary.. I loved the insence on the porch, the AMAZING beds, beautiful furnishings everywhere.
We caught a baby hammerhead shark off the dock. Great place, we will be back many times!
Thanks Mike and Espen and Sandra!

The waves pounding the shore set the tone-complete tranquility, relaxation enchanting a zen experience.
The only thing my husband wished for were topless boaters- sorry I am too old!
Thank you Espen for creating such a remarkable and taseful home and sharing!
Living in the lap of luxury surrounded by nature, wildlife and a beautiful beach- mostly to ourselves has been an unforgettable experience.
Being off the grid and yet having it all has been fantastic!
Loved the long walks on the beach, meeting a few folks along the way, the black pigs, deer, arimidillo, tortoises, and enless brids, shells and dolphins- an OMG experience!
Things we pass along that might be helpful. Winn Dixie in Marco-has a boat dock where you can park and go shopping for your groceries. Just beyone the esplanade in Collier Bay under the bridge to the left, you can make it! Push your cart to the dock! yeah!
Dockside Restaurants:
Marco The snook Inn a touristy place but what the heck
Up the Marco river to Goodland
Not that far away. The little bar, Go on Sunday and enjoy Stans biker bar next door. ITs a trip Also next door is a fish market. Get some stone crab claws and gulf shrimp to take home for dinner. They pack ice!
Naples
The dock Restaurant Behind the city dock. Food was good service was excellent.
Pinchers Great crab and corn chowder I loved the crab cake and slaw.
Never went to the pary at the end of keewaydin where they have a burger bar on a boat, but we thought the concept good.
If only I had the courage to kitesurf!
We have been seduced and already planning to return How lucky are we to have been here.
THank you Espen!
PS we should keep this secret to ourselves!

Thanks so much for letting us share in your wonderful piece of paradise! We loved the uninhabited beach, it was great to only have to share it with the pelicans, dolphins, stingrays, flroida fighting conchs, sand peipers, armidillos, and and occasional boater.
The house was lovely and our family fit in very nicely and comfortably.
We loved learning to paddleboard and the shelling was phenomenal.
The boat made everyday and adventure and we were thrilled to see the manatees up close.
We would love to come back again!

Tons of geckos
Lots of schools of fish
Osprey
Pelicans
Seagulls
And many more birds
Things we did:
Played on the beach
Walked on the beach
Tood boat rides
Opened a coconut
Collected lots of shells
Went gecko hunting
Used the paddleboard
Watched the sunset
Got caught in a rainstorm
Watched a movie on the projection tv
But most importantly we got to relax and spent time together in paradise.
We all agree that we would love to journey back to this amazing place!!
Thanks again for allowing us in your home!
Sincerely,
The McK......Clan
