Welcome to The Wilderness Bungalow at Port Of The Islands...

Our Bungalow is the perfect get-a-way for two. You will be in the heart of The Everglades, in quaint luxury, enjoying all that the surrounding areas, The Florida Everglades /10,000 Islands, Everglades City, Marco Island, Goodland, and Naples, has to offer.

BOOKING WITH US IS LIKE FINDING THAT QUAINT OUT-OF-THE-WAY PLACE WHERE MEMORIES ARE MADE AND THE MADDENING CROWDS ARE LEFT BEHIND...

The space
First... Thank you for visiting our site on AirBnB...

We ask that you take the time to read thoroughly, a little long but a great read, what The Wilderness Bungalow @ Port of the Islands has to offer and how we maintain our SuperHost status...

We want our Guests to have a great time and enjoy our clean, comfortable, and uniquely functional Bungalow... Is there any other way...

BUT before you read on about our beautiful Bungalow and who we are, let's address the most crucial issue at hand...

CLEANLINESS & SAFETY...

We are SuperHost... Why... Because we have been practicing stringent guidelines for cleaning, sanitation, and having excellent accommodations...

AirBnB has since published "The AirBnB Cleaning Handbook... Your Step-by-Step Guide To AirBnB's Enhanced Cleaning Protocol..." They developed this cleaning protocol based on CDC guidance and in consultation with industry leaders (such as Ecolab and Dr. Vivek Murthy, Former U.S. Surgeon General) in the fields of sanitization and medicine.

What we would like to stress is that we were already using theses exact Cleaning Protocols as outlined in AirBnB's Cleaning Handbook...

As SuberHosts, we would also like to ask our Guests to be 5-star Super Guests... Isn't it fair to expect our Guests to observe high standards of respect and clean living while staying at our Bungalow since we have committed to providing a rental unit that is safe, clean, and beautifully remodeled...

We believe the only answer is YES... And to assist our Guests in maintaining a safe environment, we are providing specific sanitation materials so we can be a Super Guest and Suber Host Team...

LET'S TALK ABOUT OUR BUNGALOW...
It is a piece of older Florida... Located on the grounds of The Everglades Adventure Resort... Our Bungalow is a Studio Apartment that has been completely remodeled...

A BRANDNEW BATHROOM: All tile, granite counter, and sliding glass shower doors...

A SMALL KITCHENETTE BUT VERY FUNCTIONAL: New cabinets, granite tops, K-cup coffee maker, small Convection Toaster oven, 9.9 cubic foot refrigerator (that means it's not just a tiny little under the counter fridge)...

THE LIVING AREA: Flat screen T.V., internet connection, new adjustable queen bed, comfortable sitting/work area, A.C., and a small screened in Lanai (they called it a patio when I was growing up in Florida) with pool and courtyard view...

I assure you, you will love this cozy, comfortable, clean efficiency just off the large resort pool and walking distance to The Angler's Cove Bar and Restaurant... Good food and nightly entertainment... Very convenient... No driving... BE A LOCAL...

You also have access to all resort amenities: workout room, tennis & pickleball courts, half basketball court, game room, washer/dryer room...

The reality is...We want you to shop and see what else is available... We are sure you could find something for a little less... Maybe a little more... But ask yourself... What am I really looking for when I visit Florida and in particular SW Florida??? Because there is truly so much to do and see in this really cool state... So, it boils down to... Why this area...

Now, if you want to be within walking distance to a beach, downtown shops or restaurants, then we are not your place...

BUT... If you want to leave the maddening crowds behind... Explore the Largest Subtropical Wilderness in North America... Walk to the Marina and surrounding area and see manatee & gators... View a plethora of beautiful birds... Take a kayak tour... Take an Eco-Tour to Islands only accessible by boat... Swim in a beautiful pool... Ride a bike around the wilderness community and then relax in a Florida Bungalow and get away from it all???

THEN YOU HAVE COME TO THE RIGHT PLACE... BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT IT'S LIKE STAYING IN OUR WILDERNESS BUNGALOW...

Oh, and if you want to get away from "getting away from it all,"...

Then you have some of the greatest day-trips to some of the most distinctive areas of S.W. Florida...

EVERGLADES CITY & CHOKOLOSKEE: 10 miles East, rustic, historic pioneering Adventure Town, really neat Everglades restaurants, airboats, the Historic Smallwood trading post...

MARCO ISLAND: 15 miles S.W., shopping, restaurants, beaches, lots of high-end and low-end activities...

NAPLES: 23 miles West to downtown, restaurants, beaches, lots of high-end and low-end activities...

And there's more... Corkscrew Swamp, Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, Sanibel & Captiva Islands... All within 35 minutes - 1 1/4 hours drive...

This is who we are... The Wilderness Bungalow @ Port of the Islands...

See you soon...

Location

Naples, Florida, United States

As mentioned, we are located at Port Of The Islands... We would like our Guests to realize what we offer and that Port Of The Islands is a unique community located in an extraordinary environment ...

What makes us unique and extraordinary??? OMG... The list is almost endless... The first is our location... The Port is surrounded by the largest subtropical wilderness in North America... This Subtropical Wilderness encompasses an unparalleled landscape that provides essential habitat for numerous rare and endangered species like the Manatee, American Crocodile, and the elusive Florida Panther... An international treasure as well - a World Heritage Site, International Biosphere Reserve, a Wetland of International Importance, and a specially protected area under the Cartagena Treaty, the State of Florida, and our National Government...

This area includes The Florida Everglades, 10,000 Islands National Wildlife Refuge, Fakahatchee Strand, - the largest bald cypress/royal palm swamp in the world - Big Cypress Swamp and more... All these areas offer such a wide range of activities it would take more than one visit to explore all this area has to offer...

Second... The Port itself is a great place just to hang out and relax after an exciting day of adventures in the surrounding wilderness... Port Of The Islands is a small, beautiful, quiet, and exclusive Florida community made up of single-family homes, condominiums, and townhomes... Within our peaceful Florida Community is an excellent Marina offering: The Ship's Store for bait, gas for your boat, boat ramp, and an array of tackle, food, and gifts... State of the art concrete floating docks, Boat Slip Rentals, and Boat Rentals... And The Port has direct access to The Gulf of Mexico...

Then there's the Angler's Cove, located within The Everglades Adventure Resort, with a restaurant, bar, and nightly entertainment... As our guest, you will also have access to the Resort's pool, workout room, tennis, and pickleball courts... Why just walking or biking around The Port, you could see Gators, Manatees, Dolphins, Osprey, Bald Eagles, and a variety of other birds and mammals...

And when you want a little more civilization there's rustic and beautiful Everglades City (12 miles east); Marco Island with it' s shops, restaurants, and beaches (16 miles southwest); Naples, also with its' shops, restaurants, and beaches (23 miles west); And there are many day trips you could take like going to Sanibel-Captiva Islands (58 miles North); Corkscrew Swamp (48 miles North); Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge (70 miles North)

And our Wilderness Bungalow is located in the heart of all the above in the Everglades Adventure Resort... Our Bungalow is a remolded Studio Apartment and we're poolside...

I am also a Boat Captain and Master Naturalist and owner of Florida Everglades Charter Adventures... Let me be your Concierge, Environmental Interpreter, and Guide to this unique area of Florida... "The Real Florida..." while staying in quaint luxury...

See you very soon... "Every Trip... An Adventure..."
