Goodland Homes and Information
Goodland is a tiny, quaint and charming fishing village on the southeastern most tip of Marco Island. One of the very early named places in North American history, it derived its name from the Spanish explorers in the 16th century, who named it "good land" on their early maps. As far back as 3,500 years, the original natives, the Calusa Indians, revered the Marco isles as a shrine.
Goodland offers a unique glimpse of Old Florida. The architecture is quaint, the vegetation is exotic and lush, the pace is laid-back, the seafood restaurants are outstanding, the shops are one-of-a-kind, local hot spots feature popular entertainment, and the residents are neighborly. You can't tell the fisherman from the millionaires here.
Goodland is the "gateway" to a pristine coastal wilderness, the Ten Thousand Islands. This rare and beautiful place is one of North America's unsung treasures: a labyrinth of rugged and subtropical landscapes experienced by relatively few. Goodland offers marinas and experienced guides for anglers and explorers. The fishing, birding and shelling are great!
Most of the property in Goodland is waterfront so you can have your boat at your back door. Choose from lovely new condos to quaint stilt homes, all in a unique atmosphere just perfect for the unhurried pursuit of pleasures!
