PRIVATE COTTAGE IN NATURE'S PARADISE

Vanderbilt Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Private Cottage Near The Beach And In The Center Of It All

Charming magical cottage on 1.25 acres surrounded by 22 varieties of tropical fruit trees (70 fruit trees total), flowering trees, bushes, orchids and organic vegetable garden in the midst of one of Naples most desirable communities of Pine Ridge Estates. This nature retreat is minutes from the beach, The Mercato, Waterside Shops, Whole Foods Market, The Naples Philharmonic and Museum of Art and other area attractions.

The neighborhood is a walkers'/bikers' haven. Everything is close by, yet you have complete privacy in a totally fenced and gated lot. It feels like you are out in the country even though you are in the center of things. Enjoy relaxation, pleasant walks around the neighborhood, bird watching, bike rides to the beach, stunning sunsets and complete tranquility.

The cottage is eco friendly - freshly painted with no VOC paint, organic mattress, sheets and towels - only environmentally friendly products are used in the house and on the property.

The owner lives on the property and is available to guide you to the many activities the area has to offer such as kayaking, guided bird watching excursions, boating, fishing, yoga studios, cross fit gyms, visits to the numerous nature preserves etc. The owner is also very knowledgeable about organic gardening and exotic tropical fruits and will gladly introduce you to delicious tropical treats and breakfast fruit smoothies made from ripened fruits picked right on the property.

As a separate package, the cottage is also available as a healing retreat. The owner is a 10 year low fat Raw Vegan who eats a diet of mainly fresh fruit and green leafy vegetables. Assistance in 'Gaining Vibrant Health' retreats is available. Please contact for further information.

Please watch the available YouTube video to capture the full essence of this sweet abode.

IDEAL HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
A MUST RETURN! Nothing to dislike at Marianne's Cottage. In good weather enjoy the beautiful landscaping, eat on the deck underneath the poinciana tree, relax in the rocker or comfy recliner while reading a good book. If it should rain the bright interior with its soothing and attractive decor, flat
screen T.V., and Bose sound system allow one to pass the hours very happily. For the person who still wants to cook on holiday the kitchen is extremely well equipped. All this within short distance of theatres, good food markets, upscale boutiques, and for the tennis enthusiast the Pelican Bay Park Community Tennis Club. Yet, one does not hear any traffic noise from nearby US 41. Marianne is most welcoming and helpful, while at the same time allowing her "guests" the privacy some may wish. The property inside and out is meticulously maintained. We highly recommend this haven to those looking for a quiet retreat but one which is convenient to all that Naples offers.

WONDERFUL LOCATION WHEN VISITING NAPLES FL. AREA!

  • 5 of 5
We simply loved the cottage. It felt like our home. Marianne was a great host. The moment we arrived the cottage was scented wonderfully, a bottle of red wine with cheese and crackers and fruit was waiting for us! For the full week we were there we never ate out for breakfast, because we wanted to drink our Nespresso [which is great] with the breakfast we prepared there. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting outside on the patio while watching and listening to the birds and taking in the scenery around us. The cottage is perfectly located to all activities. Old Naples is five minutes away. Great restaurants all around. Beautiful home away from home! We've been telling friends and family about this place. Can't wait to return! Thanks Marianne!

A PIECE OF HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I fell in love with Marianne's restful cottage last year so much, that we decided to come back again this year for a month!! As in the past, Marianne had meticulously manicured the cottage both inside and out. There was an abundant source of fruit trees on the property which we thoroughly enjoyed. Marianne had everything we needed and if we needed something extra she would gladly get it for us. Fresh flowers and fruit, plus a bottle of wine greeted us when we arrived--- a most welcomed gift after a long days drive. We felt right at home enjoying the lush gardens, comfortable cozy cottage and deck. We loved being in a quiet residential area and its location was only a short distance from excellent dining, shopping , and beaches (which was accessible on bikes provided by Marianne) We highly recommend this little bit of heaven to those who like a serene quiet retreat. Marianne and Merlin, her beloved yellow Lab, were the BEST hosts!!! We are already looking forward in spending time there next year!!

ADORABLE COTTAGE RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this peaceful relaxing cottage for two weeks and enjoyed it thoroughly! Easy access to the beautiful beach, shopping and great restaurants. The cottage was immaculate and comfy, with everything you need, including fresh fruit from the owner's many trees. Marianne was terrific....she took care of all of our needs, but totally gave us our privacy. We especially enjoyed occasional visits from her very sweet dog Merlin, who made us feel very welcome. We absolutely loved it and would highly recommend staying here.

HONEYMOON

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful, peaceful, quiet, romantic,
convenient and modern. Loved this place!!!! I'm a resident of Naples and got married the weekend we stayed at the cottage. My husband and I didn't want to stay at a resort filled with people so this place was perfect for us. Would highly recommend!!!

COZY, MODERN ELEGANCE

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed here for a week as a Honeymoon, and it was unbelievable! Marianne, the owner, began the getaway on a high note by providing us with champagne, fresh fruit, plated cheese and biscuits, and set the mood by having music playing when we entered, as well as adorning the bed with rose petals. It was the perfect start to an amazing vacation. I will organize my review into a few sections that I think would have helped me chose this property.

1. Transportation: Very easy to find, and with a private gate and driveway, you feel right at home. This cottage is within biking distance of dozens of great restaurants, shopping centers, and the beach. Perfect location to enjoy Naples, but it is not directly on the beach. If you prefer to drive to the beach, typical parking was $8.

2. Inside of house: The cottage was immaculate and very well taken care of. She had new appliances and furniture, and had the place elegantly decorated. She provided anything you needed, and urged us to ask for additional supplies if needed.

3. Things to do: In our week there, we chose to go to the beach, a state park, take a Tango class, kayak, browse the city, shop, ride bikes, see a movie, and the list could go on! There is plenty to do and the owner will go out of her way to make restaurant suggestions, give directions, and generally help with anything you would need.

4. Fresh fruit: The owner is an expert tropical fruit grower, and we were supplied with mango's and banana's at all times. Breakfast every morning consisted of a wonderful smoothie thanks to this added perk!

Overall, what an amazing experience for me and my wife. For the price and the perks, you will not find a better and more fitting space for a couple.
