Keewaydin Island is accessible only by boat, and it forms part of Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve. It is an 8 mile long barrier island, just off the coast of Naples, between Gordon Pass and Marco Island, with a peaceful, unspoiled white sugar sand beach.
Sunshine, gulf beaches, blue skies, fresh air and peace and quiet abound. If you need a break from the mad pace of urban living today...a week of relaxing at Yellowbird may be your perfect rejuvenator.
Wildlife is abundant, including dolphins, manatees, key deer, armadillos, and many osprey nests with fledglings being cared from by doting parents. Keewaydin is a migration stopover for 150 different species of interesting birds on their way North or South, and many who live here year-round, including eagles, pelicans, and the gorgeous large pink roseate spoonbills. If you are ever fortunate enough to see one fly over you, I guarantee your heart will stop.
This is a great place to unwind. You can swim and sun, walk and talk, boogie-board or stand-up paddleboard, go kayaking, collect shells on the beach, fish from dock, boat or beach, read, write, relax and re-connect with your yourself and your loved ones, and with the beauty of nature. And yet you are only 30 minutes from civilization and its benefits, if you want it or need it.
It's not too good to be true.
It's here...waiting for you.
Yellowbird is the perfect destination to escape the ordinary. The property has everything that was promised in the pictures and description plus more! The entire property inside and out is fully equipped and the owners have made sure absolutely everything you could possibly need is included. The beds were very comfortable and the furnishings were top notch! If solitude is what you are looking for this is the place to go. You can walk the beach for hours and only see a hand full of people, and fish for your supper. One week just isn't long enough! Ahmed and Kathy go above and beyond! They are very easy to work with and extra accommodating! You truly only need some clothes, sunscreen, and your food and water!
When I read the amazing reviews of Yellowbird, they convinced me to rent the property. I was not disappointed. It was one of the loveliest vacations my husband and I and our family have ever taken. While the house was so comfortable and the beach was awesome, it was the owners, Kathy and Ahmed who truly made it special for us. They were friendly, helpful, accommodating, understanding and above all, wonderful people. I feel as though we made two new friends. We have booked for another two weeks next year and it will be great to see them again! It is the perfect house for friends or family and though it is stocked with sports equipment, games and any other item you could possibly want or need, it is also the perfect place to just relax and do nothing. The beach is 8 miles of exquisite white sand with hardly a soul in sight. As I said, it is truly a gem.
We have rented many vacation homes over the years , but never a place that was so perfectly organized with everything that you could ever want : beach toys, play toys, high chairs for every age, pack-in-play , baby gates and large beach tents. And for the adults kayak, paddle boards, pink pong just to mention a few of the amenities. Kathy And Ahmed were absolutely fantastic, immediately answering every email/ text and making sure every thing was perfect. We returned home last night and are rebooking for next year!
Yellowbird was an amazing experience for my wife, three daughters (13,11,9) and myself. You will not believe the privacy and cleanliness of this property. The owners are some of the most responsive and friendly people we have ever met. My family enjoys the water and adventures and this vacation was exactly that experience. We loved is so much that we booked our return trip before we left. Thank you Kathy and Ahmed for sharing your beautiful island home with us!
Wonderful stay! so relaxed, careful, no stress week. Everything is provided, come with your flip flops and bathing suit and leave the hair dryer, make up and worries behind! The owners provide everything! So many games and toys inside and outside to play with the family. Just bring enough food for your whole stay as it is a private island and to get back to main land or Marco Island, shop and back again, will take a good half day of time. Totally worth it though. Highly recommended. We would love to go back again!
This is the first time to do a long vacation and to use vrbo to rent a beach house. We were highly impressed and thrilled with our experience. The pictures don't do the house justice it is beautiful and perfect for a secluded island getaway. The boat included in the rental is easy to use and well maintained. The house owners Kathy and Ahmed are amazing and ensure you have everything you need. The also are quick to respond to questions. I will definitely be recommending to family and friends.

Back to nature - but not too far - and in comfort!
