Making our way south to the Florida Keys, decided to stop off in the heart of the Everglades. Although the motel is quite basic, the villa is on the water's edge and you can see small boats and animals. Great location to access the Everglades and to take an Airboat Ride.

My wife and I rented a 1 bedroom for two nights in mid-January. The weather was in the low-70s most of the time. The apartment was very clean and had great amenities including a stove, fridge, and sofa. The real star is the screened porch overlooking the water. The whole vacation could be spent sitting on the porch and watching...

Riverside suites on stilts with spacious accommodation and extremely well equipped kitchens. Service is very welcoming and the whole structure, while showing its age somewhat, seems to be kept in quite good repair. They had just finished repaving the entire parking area. If you are planning to cook in, I suggest you do your food shopping before you get here...

thanks for the review. We appreciate it. There are really a lot of things to do here besides airboats , boat tours and fishing. We have so much history in this community. 2 great museums, hiking trails nearby and so much more. Everglades City was once the Collier County seat. Thanks again. Myrna

My boyfriend and I and another couple rented a 2 bedroom for 2 nights. It was PERFECT! So quiet and relaxing and made our trip to the everglades wonderful.

Stayed one night, arrived late due to traffic problems. Owner could not have been more accommodating, told me my unit number & left the key in the unit for me. Upon check out you just leave the key In the unit as you found it. As others have mentioned, it is a bit outdated but my unit was spotlessly clean....

We stayed at River Wilderness two weekends ago for our first visit to the Everglades (mid-November 2015) and found it to be exactly the type of accommodations we like. Nothing too fancy, clean & relaxed. A bit outdated.....but the location (you can walk to everything), huge screened waterfront deck and water view made up for that! The sunrises were spectacular....

If you want high class accommodation, go to Naples! This little gem in Everglades city puts you in the heart of the Everglades. Our cabin was clean and spacious, with everything you could need. A little rickety and dated, but so what? Quirky, quiet and restful. Wildlife on your doorstep. Pool, free canoes, BBQ, laundry facilities - perfect!

Loved the location on the river and the screen porch in back. The unit isn't fancy and is a bit dated in some aspects, but it has everything needed, is very comfortable, and we enjoyed our stay. Will stay here again if we come back as we thought it was the best location in Everglades City.

Wow! This was more than we expected! We were looking for a place like this that could give us the cabin-experience we wanted. On our us-road trip, this is a place to remember.

We stayed here not really expecting much as it's such a small town but the views from the balcony made it well worth while. While drinking tea in the morning I watched alligators float by and a dolphin swimming along the waters edge looking for fish, that made the stay one to remember. The place itself was a bit tired...
