I became acquainted with Southwest Florida when my aunts, uncle, grandmother and father all began vacationing in the Fort Myers area. Remembering the warmth, the light and the beach, I dreamed of one day owning something in the south to get away to during freezing New England winters. In 2010, when my father passed away, he left me a small nest egg and I knew the time was right for my partner and I to put it into a small home in Naples. Because I am still teaching and working full time on Cape Cod, and my partner is working full time building beautiful sailboats, our ability to get away right now is limited, and we can share this wonderful place with others as a rental. This home is a tribute to my Dad who taught me the value of owning real estate, and the inestimable value of relaxing.
Mae Timmons purchased this bungalow in 2010
I knew that I wanted to own a home in a modest neighborhood, and be able to stroll to the beach and walk or bike ride to the Turtle Club or Baleen restaurant on Vanderbilt Beach. To find such a well cared for place in the 500 block on one of the best streets in Naples Park (98th St), well - the writing was on the wall!
The neighborhood is quiet, residential, safe, beautiful, and the neighbors are mostly year round and lovely. Although this location is serene, you are five minutes away from everything you need - shops, restaurants, beach, services, cinema, bike shop, the Mercato, you name it.
This home is in a nice quiet neighborhood that is close to the beach, tennis courts, a fitness facility, and lots of great stores and restaurants. We rode bikes almost every day and saw sunset at the beach a few times a week. The listing photos are accurate and the home was clean and well-maintained. The owner was very helpful in every way. The beds were comfortable, although the second bed looked smaller than a queen to me (also that room could use a more effective window treatment). The master has a nice large walk-in closet. The home is partially renovated, with the kitchen and bathroom cabinets/countertops still to go. The cabinets, pantry, closets and garage could use some cleaning and organization, but we were able to move things around and make room for our stuff. We didn't use the gas grill or water gear, but we did use the washer/dryer. I'd recommend this property, if it sounds like it will fit your needs. It's not upscale, but is roomy and has many useful amenities.
I was attending a conference with my daughter and was appalled by the high prices of the hotel which hosted the conference. It was difficult to find a rental of a home given the high season in Naples--but I found this gem. And, I wanted to deal with an actual OWNER not a real estate agent. Mae was terrific, she was very accessible. I loved the location (about a mile from Vanderbilt Beach) and the home had everything one could need. I'd recommend this home whole heartedly.
We arrived after a long trip from Indiana ready for a week in warmer weather. We were not disappointed. No, it was not a condo on the beach, but in many ways it was better for a longer stay. Normally this bungalow. Rents for a month at a time. This is what makes this vacation house a better deal. It has more room for the money and a yard to boot. The owners have everything you need to go to the beach. Speaking of the beach, it is only minutes away by car. We chose to go to the state park, away from the condo crowd. It was very nice.. The sunsets are beautiful from anywhere on the beach. Our only disappointment was that the televisions in the bedrooms, only one had a small 13" . But that didn't stop us from enjoying our stay.
The bungalow looks just like the pictures. It is not posh., but it is comfortable and has lots of room.
We needed a winter break form all the holiday dealings, and this was the perfect getaway. The house is charming and well appointed with all the essential amenities, including a super coffee maker, well stocked kitchen, and a comfortable feeling all around. The house was located near a fantastic state park, which we thoroughly enjoyed. It's close enough to bike to, but offered more privacy than the very public Vanderbilt Beach. But when we wanted a luxurious lunch, there was the Turtle Club on VB, easy walk/ride from the house. In other words, this location and the house had it all! The owners clearly love this house and making the stay more special.
Located within walking distance to Vanderbilt Beach, this property is spotless,well appointed and cozy. The floor plan is spacious enough to offer a tv room, a reading room and an outside lanai (we ate most meals in lanai). Beautiful, new grill. We plan to return often. Consider lunch or dinner @ Turtle Club on Vandy Beach-walking distance. Shop @ Fresh Market on 41.
Stroll or ride bikes to nearby Vanderbilt Beach, tennis, walking paths, or restaurants. 2 minute drive to the brand new Mercato, with Whole Foods grocery store, upscale clothing and specialty shops, a wide array of restaurants from steakhouse to asian to deli to thai food and a 12 theatre cinema lounge, the Silverspot with cushy leather chairs and a bar! Dozens of nearby golf courses for fabulous golf. Shopping galore minutes away at the Mercato!!
