Gulf Front Beach House Estate on Private Island

Take a break from the stress of everyday life to Southwest Florida’s remote paradise; Keewaydin Island. Just off the coast of Naples and Marco Island, this 9 mile stretch of pristine white powdered beaches is home to an abundance of wildlife including dolphins, manatee, loggerhead sea turtles, deer, armadillos, tortoises, bald eagles, and countless birds and other wildlife.

Keewaydin Island is more than just a vacation, it is a tropical experience. Tranquility, serenity, and pure bliss await you. Sway in a hammock, swim, paddleboard, kayak, fish, or just relax with your toes in the sand. Our home offers a large kitchen with Viking stove, eat in dining area, sleeps up to 6 people comfortably, and each bedroom has its own patio and private bathroom with views of the Gulf of Mexico from every room in the house. Enjoy an evening cocktail or sunset from our roof deck, with spectacular views of the surrounding area.

Nearby shopping and dining in downtown Naples on world renowned 5th Ave is only a 30 minute boat ride away. Also, allow us to alleviate any stress upon arrival by arranging your initial provisions ahead of time. Your only worry will be what color bathing suit to wear!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family had an awesome time at your house, it met all our expectations and more! The trip out was easy and fast and Fred managed everything-even lugging our 80 pound suitcase in for us! Beach was very nice and inviting and the kids were on the beach every morning by 0900. The interior was even nicer than the pictures, we felt we were living in a 5-star resort but couldn't see anyone else. We shall return next year for sure.

Beautiful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 2 children (ages 13 & 16), and I just returned home from a wonderful vacation at the beach house on Keewaydin Island. I'm not even sure where to begin... The rental experience itself was so very easy and hassle free. Pierre, the owner, was always quick to respond to any questions that we had a long the way - both by email and phone. He gave us a contact name and number for a boat rental (which is a must in my opinion). That rental company was very easy to work with as well and we had a boat waiting for us at the meeting dock when we arrived. The owner was there to give us instructions and then Freddy, the caretaker, arrived to lead the way in his boat to the beach house. The boat ride to and from the island was quite easily navigatable. We ventured out each day for waterfront dining of all sorts. Freddy was also very quick to respond and accommodating when we needed to contact him before arrival to let him know that we would be delayed for a couple of hours. The house itself is gorgeous! Very spacious and very clean and supplied with all the amenities of your own home. My daughter and I spent our days sunning ourselves and collecting shells on the beach. The most perfect shells I have ever seen on a beach - probably because there is no one else there to collect them! The house location is very desolate. During the daytime hours, we would occasionally see other people. Occasionally being the key word here! There was a group of people that would show up near us for a couple of hours on a few of the days that we were there, left around 3pm. That's it! My husband and son took a couple of trips in to Naples to golf and spent the rest of their time fishing. We even all went on a Tarpon fishing trip one day. Due to some previous stormy weather, the tarpon fishing was not good. However, the best luck we had fishing was right from the beach! They caught bonnet head shark, catfish, flounder, snapper, and Jack right from the beach! Even a stingray one night! Not intentionally of course... We would rent this home again in a heartbeat! If you're looking for a quiet family getaway, this is your place! Don't hesitate!

Great Place to Unplug

  • 4 of 5

Really great spot to escape. Make sure and rent a boat though, and be prepared for the mosquitos and no see ums. Also, you can't run the AC all the time so it can get hot at night. The master has a air unit in it, however, the other bedrooms don't. But it is worth it for the beach access and view.

Great relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at this property for spring break. The weather was gorgeous and the house was ideal for us. We had four 16 year old boys with us and my main worry before arriving was that they would get bored with no shops, restaurants or attractions nearby but not a chance! They had a blast! And we all loved Freddy. He was incredibly helpful and absolutely made the vacation. His wife Mel was also a pleasure to meet. Freddy gave the boys some tips on where they might find tortoises and pigs and how to climb palm trees to get the coconuts! They caught some interesting fish and we saw so many dolphin and other types of sea life. It was a great adventure for all of us. Night time fires and days of exploring, shelling, kayaking, wave riding, tubing and snorkeling. On our way home we decided it was the most relaxing vacation any of us had ever taken. We can't wait to go back! Tip: Next time we will take more sunscreen and more bug spray!

A wonderful vacation destination

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our family spring break vacation with our four kids ages 17-21. We rated this vacation a 10! The island is a tropical paradise and the house is beautiful and has everything you need to be at home! Freddy, the caretaker was very helpful and we took our trip out to the island and we didn't return until our stay was over. He checked in regularly to see if we needed anything as did the owner. We didn't rent a boat and were never bored or wished we were back on the mainland. On our return trip Freddy even slowed up to get the dolphins to play with us! Thank you for a truly memorable experience! We hope to return!

Spring Break Get-A-Way

  • 5 of 5

This home was a great get-a-way from the typical Spring Break Florida vacations. It is private area with nearly no one on the beach at times. This island has shelling that far outweighs other Florida beaches, fishing from either the shoreline or well-maintained dock on the inter-coastal, and the occasionally seen deer and armadillo. A favorite past time was long walks on the 7 miles of beautiful coastline.

The home is just as it is described, well furnished, clean and everything you would need was supplied by the owner, and solar powered for 99% of the home's needs. The afternoon cross-breeze through the house was very comfortable. We only required the generator to run the central air for about an hour each evening for sleeping comfort, then used the ceiling fans.

It was our family's pleasure to have stayed at this home, the owner, Pierre, was helpful and responded to every question and concern personally. The property manager, Freddie, was a delight to get to know. He is a personable fellow and he truly wants the guests to have a pleasant and memorable vacation. He is a crucial resource. Freddie assists in arranging your arrival and provides a detailed "walk through" of the house and it's operations. If we had any questions, even questions not related to the property, but to the local area, Freddie was always available to us. We opted to use text messaging as our communication, but not a necessity.

We opted to rent a boat as we did visit a couple restaurants in Naples during our stay. Highly recommend Riverwalk at Tin City for seafood - reservations only for parties of 8 or more. Our adult children enjoyed the boat as an option for additional fishing and entertainment. The boat rental manager, Chuck, provided us with a fabulous boat with a 200 horsepower engine! Everything was in good working order on the vessel. No credit cards accepted for boat rental, payment arrangements made through Chuck and in our case, he was very flexible.

Make sure to plan in your time table travel time to and from the island, about an additional 30 -40 minutes, dock to dock. Freddie is also extremely helpful in loading and hauling all your luggage, groceries, etc to and from the house.

The only downside to this property is insects, no-seeums and mosquitos (mostly at night). But, let's be realists - it's Florida, a sparcely populated island, with lushious vegetation. Just use some bug spray and all is well.

This property is a hidden gem!

A little slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

My family just returned home from this incredible island home. We can not say enough about this home, the property, and the owner Pierre and his assistant Freddy. First off what was so nice was to have the owner check in with us a couple of times just to make sure everything was going good. Freddy his amazing assistant was so kind and helpful and truly delightful to spend some time. He helped us get settled in and also explained all we needed to know about the home. He also took the time to stop and show us some dolphin on the way to the property and on the way back. The boat right to and from the home was incredible. The dolphins were jumping and rolling over right in the wake of the boat.

The pictures of the home do not even do it justice. Every room has an amazing view of the ocean, and the home was so comfortable. It had everything we needed from pots and pans to a blender, to amazingly comfortable beds. The balcony of the master is a perfect spot to relax and take in the views. The beach was perfect, the sea shells were like none I have ever seen. The fishing was so much fun. The wildlife was stunning. Every time we turned around there was some new animal around the corner. We saw iguanas, an armadillo, a deer, a big sea turtle, dolphins. This was by far the best vacation spot I have ever been to. We will never forget this island paradise.
