Port of the Islands...a bit of history...

As you drive along scenic Route 41, enjoying the solitude and nature of the area, many are surprised to come across our little community at Port of the Islands. It's no wonder...protected lands surround us...on all sides! Just minutes to all the amenities
a city has to offer, Port of the Islands is like an island "away from it all."
Started many years ago in the 60's as Remuda Ranch, a resort primarily used by Gulf American Corp., a real estate development company, promoting Golden Gate Estates (they also developed Cape Coral). Many people remember the airstrip (now Sunset Cay) that brought in visitors and investors, many for a promotional free weekend. It became known as the "Port."

In 1980, Bill Ray, a developer with his own dream, acquired the property after others unsuccessfully tried promoting it after Gulf American failed. He obtained a $7 million dollar bond for the completion of the infrastructure, which matured in 2010. Mr.
Ray sadly died in 1991 after successfully completing the first condominium building, now known as Sunrise Cay, Phase I. The first home lots were also sold. In 1994, his family auctioned off the remaining property to private individuals and developers.

Since that time, the completion of dozens of new homes, Eveningstar and Stella Maris Villas, Sunrise Cay, Sunset Cay, and Villages at Stella Maris, and Orchid Cove has taken place. The hotel and marina have undergone a major renovation which is still ongoing. Still to be completed is some vacant land on the north side. 

Included in the infrastructure is our own (built 2013) state-of-the-art water and sewer treatment plant, located across the street north of route 41, as well as our very own round the clock manned fire station and ships store.   Golden Gate estates is undergoing restoration, which means more of the Everglades will be restored to its natural beauty and resources. The State is also in the process of taking title to as much of this land as possible. This puts Port of the Islands in a very unique position. You will not find another community quite like ours. We invite you to stop by and see for yourself...it's like stepping back in time...to the way Florida used to be. Best of all, a piece of this Gulf access  paradise can still be yours-very affordably!

What our clients are saying  

"The Jensen Group. A special thank you to Ray for the sale of our SunSet Cay condo. Not only did they find an outstanding offer in less than 24 hours but did so in a very professional and organized manner. Ray gave me some advice back in February that truly paid off. I highly recommend their services as they live and know the port."


~ Phil Zamarron

"Extremely professional, knowledgeable and caring. There is no other choice when listing, buying or selling here at The Port"


~ R Rondini

"With the ONLY office here at POI, and a very warm, welcoming, high visibility one at that, listing with these fine folks is the smartest move when selling here. Have also had great success when shopping and purchasing with Port of the Islands Realty. A committed and very pro team. Thanks for being here and all you do for the community (and those delicious muffins!!)! It only makes sense to support our local neighbors like these folks, particularly when they do an outstanding job AND support us... a 'no brainer'."


~ J Farina

"L'endroit très agréable et accueillant. Vraiment sympa." Translated: "A very nice and welcoming place. Really nice."


~ Witold Jasion

"What a terrific and capable team at POI Realty! Every document was perfectly executed and delivered immediately with complete and thoughtful follow up. We wish half the brokerages we deal with nationwide were half as good! Keep up the great work and thank you for your business!"


~ North American Title and Servicing

"Honest, loyal to our community."


~ J. Brownlee

"Very efficient in scheduling showings of the best properties suited to us! Thank you for the time spent and all of the knowledge you shared about Naples and Port of the Islands- extremely professional!"


~ Mike Murphy

"Dwyn did an amazing job narrowing down our requirements and allowing to focus our search on our perfect neighborhood. She was very patient and nimble as we were new to the area and weren't quite sure what kind of home we wanted. We never felt rushed and she was so helpful throughout the process. I'd recommended Dwyn wholeheartedly! Thank you Dwyn - we love our new home!"


~ Lely Buyer

"Dwyn made the process simple, fast, and worry free for our family to sell this home. She handled everything while we were out of the state. Thanks Dwyn!"


~ B. Ayers

"Selling or buying a home is an important and potentially stressful event in anyone's life.It is a journey into the unknown. One asks the questions, "How long will the process take?", "How should I get ready to sell or purchase a home?", "What is a fair price?", and many more questions. Dwyn Dion is a calm, resourceful, courteous person who is physically present at the client's side for every step of the selling-buying process. She patiently explains every page of a contract and makes the client immediately aware of any and all new developments. Trulia needs Dwyn Dion to make this company an even greater success. And even more, Trulia needs agents who will cause clients to return to Trulia and recommend Trulia to their friends and relatives. Selling my home with the help of Dywn was a wonderful process. I wish she would relocate to her native Maine in order to help me with the next sell and move."


~ K. Balakier

"We have bought 2 homes and sold one through Dwyn. if not for her persistence on our first which was a short sale. It would not have happened. A lot of agents would have walked. she stuck with it and got it done. the second deal was a Fannie Mae property that was time sensitive. She got it done quickly. we listed our condo , she had it sold in one week. it was the top priced condo sold in our development at that time. don,t look around for an agent . JUST GET HER!"


~ C. McDowell
