About the property

Direct Ocean Front. Sugar White Sand, Shelling, Stand Up Paddleboards, Fishing

Brand-new, elegant and luxurious one-level beach house on Keewaydin Island, called KeeIsland, is nestled in greenery, with a clear view of the white sugar sand beach and sparkling blue water just twenty yards away from windows and openings towards the sea which is practically wall-to-wall, verandahs and balconies.

Stroll or jog along the secluded beach at your leisure. Relax on beach chairs and watch the friendly small rollers coming in at sunrise or sunset. Do some beachcombing or take in a paddle with the provided Stand Up Paddleboards.

Swim or snorkel in the clear, warm waters. Learn how to paddleboard or windsurf!

Birds soar overhead or nest in the surrounding trees. Dolphins and manatees frolic in the water just steps away.

KeeIsland, has three spacious bedrooms and extra sleeping spaces, so there’s plenty of room for up to nine people to enjoy this peaceful island paradise.

About Keewaydin Island:

Keewaydin Island is an eight-mile long barrier island off the coast of Naples, with only 13 private homes on the whole island!

There are no roads on the island and no cars. You’ll be in your own private world– but there’s plenty to do if you love swimming, paddle boarding, beachcombing or just taking it easy and enjoying beautiful sunrises and sunsets.

You can also enjoy the beauty of the protected natural preserve of Rockery Bay, which surrounds us and features bays and mangrove forests. Check out the beauty of Rockery Bay at their website: www.rookerybay.org/.

About KeeIsland House

The oceanfront estate of KeeIsland is surrounded by lush greenery and a great view of the sugar white sand beach and brilliant blue water of the bay. If you’re a bird watcher you’ll be in heaven, and if you love ocean-watching for the chance to see manatees or dolphins, this is the place for you

KeeIsland House is a brand-new home built to the highest specifications for “green” living that is also luxurious living.

This 3,800 square-foot luxury beach home, fully furnished, is entirely powered by state-of-the-art solar panels. You are completely off-grid here, but rest assured you’ll never notice the difference from on-grid living!

As you wait for dinner, relax and chat with your friends on the completely screened-in outdoor patio. From the patio, you can see the trees and the ocean beyond. There’s also a patio off the Master Bedroom.

All of the patio areas features twelve-foot high ceilings and the living room area has plate-glass windows that are practically wall-to-wall. There’s air-conditioning in summer and heating in winter, of course.

The bedrooms come equipped with big-screen TVs. Browse the web on your computer with lightning-like speed thanks to high-speed satellite internet.

Each bedroom has an en-suite bathroom. The master bathroom is rather special – there are an outdoor tub and separate outdoor shower area (don’t worry – there’s no one around but you and your guests!) and spectacular scenery to enjoy while you bathe.

At breakfast, lunch or dinner time the delicious aromas will waft to you from the open kitchen.

Amenities

All amenities are provided, from luxurious linens for the bedrooms to towels and tropical lemongrass soaps for the bathrooms.

In the kitchen, the refrigerator, microwave oven, and accouterments are all top of the line, as are the blender, toaster and coffee maker. There are a washer and dryer in the utility room also.

About Espen P Schiefloe

Sunny Lane LLC is a family owned Florida company dedicated to top tier guest experiences in a beach front stay.

Espen P Schiefloe purchased this house in 2010

Why Espen P Schiefloe chose Naples

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. This gulf front home location enjoys unbeatable natural features which include your boat and bay on the back side and essentially a private beach..

What makes this house unique

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...

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful week in a beatiful home by the Sea. Our visit far exceeded our expectations. Espen has thought of everything to make your visit first class in every way. Nine of us visited you house in October of 2015. What a trip! We enjoyed being "Off the grid" with first class amenities. We enjoyed cooking breakfast as the sun came up. We enjoyed daily trips on the boat to the point of keewaydin, catching fish at mid night off the bech, catching a dozen different fish every day. cooking woderful dinners in the evening and wathcing unbelievable sunsets each night. Trips to the isle of Capri, Fish House for Gruebens made a great lunch. Thank you Espen for your vision and for creating a wonderful first class vacation home that you share with your guests. We really enjoyed ourselves and look forward to returning soon. The M..... Thank You!!!!!

Sublime Private Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with a group of dear friends who travelled from disparate parts of the country to spend a week together in this pristine natural retreat. We were overwhelmed with the beauty, seclusion and luxury of this incredible home. We spent many hours enjoying the breathtaking views, sharing meals, and basically living on the huge, beautiful porch. The private master bedroom (which is in it’s own building) is absolutely gorgeous and has a wonderfully exotic outdoor shower. We took full advantage of the electric bicycles, taking rides every evening, reveling in the amazing sunsets and the wonderful expansive feeling of having this lush island paradise to ourselves! There are loads of water toys including kayaks and paddle boards. We saw dolphins, a young fawn swimming across the channel to the island and we heard a small pig rooting in the underbrush. We took the boat sightseeing and to the Snook Inn for lunch. One of the highlights of the week was having the adorable ice cream boat come by for a late afternoon treat. Espen, Shawn and Gretchen were incredibly accommodating and responsive to any questions or requests. While there is a lot to do at Keeisland, it’s also the perfect place to just sit on the beach or float in the water doing absolutely nothing…We loved it!

Unique

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed at KeeIsland this past March. Staying there was a unique experience. The house is totally off grid, but very comfortable. This experience is not for everyone, but if you are interested in a quiet, total relaxation, white sandy beach experience, this just might interest you.

The owner had recently completed some extensive renovations prior to our visit and was still working out a few kinks. We opted to rent the boat offered with the property, to have access to the mainland. There were issues with the gear box and so we were uncomfortable using the boat unless absolutely necessary. That was disappointing.

The owner and the staff were very helpful and easily accessible. The grocery service offered was very convenient.

Owner's Response: Our guest boat had a blown motor at this time and we were forced to rent from a 3rd party a pontoon boat that was not totally up to our standards and had a problem with the shifter. We do now have our guest boat up and running with a new motor as well as a new marina location in town for departure at the Hyatt on Naples Bay. We have been addressing a few punch list items after a recent $600,000 improvement construction project to the house. And it did take a few weeks for us to work out the many details of making everything as perfect as we can. We strive to make our guest experience as perfect as possible, and sometimes when we are not 100% up to snuff, it pushes us to work harder and we have done that. We thank you for your comments as it is how we find out what we can and should improve.

Natural Beach Wonderland

  • 5 of 5

My Parents (77 + 89) and my two young daughters (2 and 5) and my wife and I enjoyed a wonderful stay at Keeisland.

The electric beach bikes were a major hit! The paddleboards and fishing gear also came in handy for enjoyable activities.

How do you describe a beachfront house that is so beautiful and the weather perfect surrounded by lush nature?

The furniture is new on the patio and with high ceilings and wide views of nature and beach, you will find it to be spectacular.

The boat ride into Marco Island to stock up at Winn Dixie grocery store is a good excuse to get out on the boat and water.

We cant wait to come back again!

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Had another beautiful stay on Keewaydin at this lovely home. Brought ice, drinks, some -pre-made meals and clothes. Ate out by boat at the Snook Inn and Tavern on the Bay. Did cocktails one night at the Island Gypsy. Enjoyed the wildlife………tortoise, manatee, dolphins, and shelling. My kids favorite vacation by far.

Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5

We traveled with our 3 kids and 2 of their friends all between 8-15. We also brought our 5lb Havanese dog at the last minute. The house was amazing. The boat was so much fun. Everything you could ever imagine was there from beach gear, Games, Toys, tools, Fishing and More. We woke up every morning and gathered shells after sunrise. We saw dolphins in the channel as well as right in front of our beach everyday. Can't wait to go back and would absolutely refer this to anyone interested whether small or large group.

Naples Family Spring Break Vacation,Tropical Natural Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We came across this property on Homeaway last year and instantly fell in love. It is even much nicer in person, its hard to describe how beautiful the vegetation and beach and clear blue/green water are.

Shawn and Gretchen were very helpful and the house well stocked.

Make sure you book your stay early as we noticed the prime weeks booked up a year in advance. We learned that this is one of only two beach houses that are right on the water in Naples.

The house itself is luxurious with high speed wi-fi and sattelite tv. Every creature comfort is available and they have thought of everything,. My husband enjoyed the provided fishing equipment and kids loved all the water toys especially the Stand Up Paddleboards.

Top 10 Florida Beach
Car: not necessary

The south west gulf coast of Florida is world renowned for its white powder sugar sand beaches, safe and warm and calm water for swimming make the water accessable to everyone. Keewaydin Island itself is considered to be one of Americas top 10 most beautiful beaches and considering you have several acres of it to your self, most of the pleasure will be in activities surrounding your beach front home. From shelling, to walking, swimming, stand up paddle boarding, boating, fishing, having your bare feet on the sand, taking in the salt sea air and the abundant nature that surrounds you. Your stay here is about nature and access to the island is by BOAT only. 40 Years ago, the environmental movement finally said enough already and stopped a planned bridge and road to the island. So this is where development in Florida stops. It's as if the entire state of Florida is paved over and then you come to the end of the road at beautiful Naples and across Gordon pass lies a natural paradise, keewaydin Island.

If you have fisherman or woman in your group, its tough to beat the fishing right off the beach (there is a great sand bar just off shore) and then the dock side has the best snook fishing anywhere.

There are more places to explore then you can imagine. An easy trip is to good land, with a couple of bars and live music. Marco Island and Naples in either direction offer plenty of places to explore.

If you want some fine dining and shopping, water parks and so forth, venturing out to Naples and Marco Island opens up other possibilities. First and foremost, great shopping and dining. Naples is a haven for wealthy retirees, and therefore you can expect the top world class dining, shopping and golfing. Two recomended in town adventures are the Botanical gardens and the Zoo. Either one is a 15 minitue drives from our marina in town.

Within Naples, we have a whole foods, trader joes and a couple organic markets. Our favorite organic market, food and thought, happens to be where we go frequently to dine for lunch, grab some organic food and head out to the island. That concludes our in town Naples suggestions.

Very often, we charachterize this island beach house experience as a place to for a wonderful peaceful escape...a place to hang out with family and friends....a time to relax..

A typical stay for our guests starts with a grocery store shop for several days. The house has all the staples already, such as spices, drinking water, towels etc. you only need to plan your meals and bring the fresh whole foods with you.

Arriving at our check in time at 3 pm. our representative loads your groceries and lugguge on to the boat. You can park and leave your car there free of charge for the week.

Once aboard, the 45 minute scenic boat ride follows navigation makers south through Naples bay, down the intercoastal water way for approximately 5-6 miles. Then you arrive on our bayside dock. We show you how to tie up the boat, bring your luggage and groceries to the house and orientate you with the home and answer any questions you have. This is the fun part because at this point your in awe at how beautful it is and how happy you are to have your own island and private beach.

We call this adventure our tropical dream...As it combines the absolute very best that Florida has to offer. From the most beautiful waters and beaches and nature and wild life...you leave concrete and mayhem behind and enter paradise...Its what the salt air and warm sun and the entire environment surrounding you bathes your soul...
