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 Goodland

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.

The Island Girl in Goodland was the perfect place to get away to for relaxing and enjoying mid-winte

  • 5 of 5

The Island Girl was everything I wanted for a comfortable, relaxing, and trouble-free vacation home. The house sits on the bay, and its large deck was great for watching dolphins, pelicans, and passing boats. The rooms were well furnished with comfortable furniture. The kitchen was well stocked with appliances, pots, pans, food storage containers, and utensils. Goodland is an undeveloped oasis 5 minutes from Marco Island. It's well placed to enjoy the natural beauty of SW Florida and the attractions of Naples also.

What a gem!

  • 5 of 5

This place is truly a gem, it is in a fantastic location right on the water and feels so homely that you just don't want to leave. I highly recommend this house if you are after a relaxing time watching the world go by (and the frequent dolphins). Amy was great, very responsive, friendly and very helpful, we will definitely try to come back.

The Island Girl is one of my favorite spots in the US

  • 5 of 5

What can I say about the Island Girl? It is exquisite! The views helped me find a part of my soul that had been hidden for far too long. This apartment is so well maintained and gorgeous.

I had never heard of Goodland, but it is so close to Marco Island, Naples, and The Everglades you have to stay here! It is so peaceful and quiet you won't be disappointed.

I will most definitely stay here again and again. LOVE LOVE LOVE!

Beautiful location! Wonderful relaxing stay in Goodland!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our get away in Goodland! We loved boating and fishing everyday. Goodland is a quiet little respit but very close to Marco for shopping and dining. The Island Girl is beautiful with all of the amenities we needed or wanted including kayaks! The owners were incredibly accommodating! We plan to visit again soon! Thanks, Amy and Dave!

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.
