About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Newly Remodeled Home

The Island Girl is just a few feet off the beautiful water of Goodland Bay. Open all the sliders and you can hear the dolphins swimming! If you want to get away from it all and still be close to all the conveniences of Marco Island, then you must check out Goodland. There are 5 restaurants right on the island that you can walk to. The beaches are only a 15 minute drive. It's the perfect place to find serenity.

About Amy Adams

Both Dave and I grew up in the North East. We moved to Bonita Springs about 10 years ago. We have a beautiful 5 year old daughter named Ava. We are a busy family and both have a passion for real estate. We have two vacation rentals at this point- the other is in Bonita Beach, FL.

Amy Adams purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Amy Adams chose Marco Island

We fell in love with the charm of Goodland. It's a step back in time. The people on the island are the salt of the earth and so genuine. The first time we saw the house, there were dolphins swimming about 10 feet away from our sea wall! I said, "We'll take it!" LOL. And we did.

What makes this apartment unique

This Home Sits On A Cul-de-sac on 155 ft of waterfront And Overlooks Beautiful Water And Mangroves. You Can Open All The Sliders In The Living Room And Bring The Outside In. The Only Sounds You Hear Are The Osprey, Dolphins, And Quite Puttering Of Boats Going By.

Great home beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful home with really nice owners. I've stayed here a few times when down fishing. It's walking distance from marina and all the Goodland restaurant area. Nicely laid out apartment, including many of the non-perishable necessities in kitchen. And a great deck out over the water (one of the most peaceful places I've enjoyed morning coffees in my life). Can't imagine a better place to stay in Goodland...and the only place for me when I'm down. Nice for a couple or family with kids.

Relax, refresh, be inspired!

  • 5 of 5

If you love nature and beautiful views in SW Florida, this upstairs apartment is for you! The changing vistas are amazing - you can observe the tides, dolphins swimming by, ospreys swooping overhead, different boats heading to and from the local marina. The sunsets are simply amazing!! The floor to ceiling windows in the dining/living rooms allow you take all this beauty in while enjoying a meal or relaxing on the chaise or recliner. The decor is restful, beachy. The kitchen well equipped - eat in or walk to 4 great restaurants in this quirky fishing village. We loved the spicy peel and eat shrimp and blackened fish at Marker 8.5. And you must experience the music and craziness at Stan's on Sundays and the delicious fresh fish at Kirk's Fish Market. Kayaks are available for your use - if you own a boat, that would be a definite plus. You can enjoy the beaches and all that Marco Island has to offer (only a short distance away) and then return to the peace and quiet of Goodland - the best of both worlds.

Our many thanks to Amy and Dave for their responsive communication and helpfulness and for sharing their Island Girl with us. We hope to be back real soon.

Hidden Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had the most wonderful vacation! We immediately felt right at home in this spacious, beautifully decorated island home. The furniture was so comfy, and the views from the back balcony are absolutely amazing. I spent most of my time sitting on the balcony enjoying the view and sounds of wildlife. We spotted an owl in the neighbor's tree two mornings in a row! We went on a wonderful boat trip that launched down the street at the marina and saw manatees, dolphins, and we went shelling on a private beach. Naples is just a short drive away and we were able to enjoy the Naples Zoo and the beaches. We were able to please our two teenage daughters, as they enjoyed being so close to nature without all the city noise. Looking forward to our next stay at the Island Girl! Thank you, Amy and Dave, for making us feel so at home and sharing your hidden oasis with us!

Relaxing birthday weekend...

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for allowing our family to enjoy your little slice of heaven for a birthday weekend! It was wonderful! The Island Girl suited us to a T with an awesome location and beautiful views! The apartment is spacious and had all the amenities we could possibly need. We especially enjoyed using the kayaks. We hope to be able to come again and stay longer the next time. And I have already given the link for your VRBO listing to three friends who were interested in staying in Goodland in the near future. Thanks again for allowing us to enjoy The Island Girl!

Amazing. Just wonderful.

  • 5 of 5

I write this review with really mixed feelings, because we loved our stay at the Island Girl so much that we kind of don't want anyone else to know about it...but since Amy and Dave are officially the best landlords ever, we're doing it for them, as a way of saying thank you. Everything about this place way exceeded our expectations: the location, the comfort, the name it! We just loved being with walking distance of the boat launch at the marina, and then if Jerry decided he wanted to stay out a little while longer fishing, all he had to do was pull the boat up alongside the house and let me know! It was extra special to be able to sit in the sun out on the lovely deck and then walk just a few paces to relax in front of the Tour de France or Wimbledon on the tv. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook family dinners, the water pressure was great, the AC worked well...even the weather cooperated! We are so excited that this peaceful place is just down the road from our home in Naples, and we can't wait for our next trip down. Thank you so much, Amy and Dave, for sharing your special Island Girl with us!

If you really want to get away from it all....

  • 5 of 5

Panoramic water views. Loads of osprey nest activity nearby. I loved sitting outside over the water, it was like being on the top deck of a boathouse. Immaculate, soothing decor, comfortable, well-appointed. Good value. I'd recommend this place to anyone, anytime.
