By general acclaim, this is the best Gulf beach in Florida. The wide, white-sand Vanderbilt Beach is secluded yet in the middle of the action, impeccably groomed, overflowing with shells and dolphins and even baby sea turtles.
The sunsets are knockouts day after day, drawing admirers from all over the world.
The two-bedroom condo was redocorated in December, 2011, with new living room furniture, lush swivel chairs overlooking the Gulf, flat screen TV, high speed internet and WiFi. The third-floor lanai is the pefect perch to toast the day as the sun settles.
The sound of the surf lulls you to sleep in the master suite, which includes a walk-in closet and a second TV.
The second bedroom overlooks the bay and tennis court and has twin beds. The new sleeper sofa in the living room allows the condo to sleep six comfortably. With only 30 units, the building is quiet and friendly.
Golf? There are 24 courses in Naples with designs by Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player and Arnold Palmer. Shopping? World class, with consignment shops a hidden treasurer.
Visit nearby Marco Island, go for a swamp buggy ride in The Everglades, tour Thomas Edison's winter home and laboratory, take in spring training baseball.
The beach? It's a dream.
