We like to travel, enjoy the outdoors, discovering new places and great food! We have done lots of sailing in the Caribbean and have traveled to many countries.
Paul purchased this Cottage in 2017
Why Paul chose Naples Park
So close to two great beaches in a fun neighborhood. This is the perfect size cottage for a vacation. Everything you need inside and a tropical backyard with pool/spa/cabana. We enjoy eating on the porch overlooking the pool at night....listening to the birds and watching the palms sway in the breeze!
What makes this Cottage unique
I love to walk on the beach in the morning. I like finding unique shells that have just come onto the beach sand. hanging swing on the porch thatch cabana with picnic table next to pool large heated pool hot tub 4 beach cruiser bicycles tropical backyard with lots of palms close to beach (500 block of Naples Park)

Artsy beach home.......
The wife and I really enjoyed this quiet, romantic and comfortable beach themed getaway. Paul the owner was very personable and helpful. His wife is very artistic and an excellent decorator. We especially enjoyed the beautiful private pool and outdoor areas to relax and enjoy the warm, sunny Florida weather. When we get away we try and find artsy, romantic, quiet and eclectic out of the way places to indulge ourselves. This nicely kept VRBO met our expectations and more. We look forward to coming back.
Honest Critic...not a boutique beach house!
Fellow travelers know that I provided a list of items that needed attention to the owner before I left the house.
We stayed at this fairly well-maintained (keyless entry lock does not work; wood panels throughout the house/on ceilings are coming off; dishwasher is not anchored to countertop) two-bedroom house with a decent-sized pool (older, green algae is growing on the bottom/sides) with hot-tub (cool deck has cracks and the jets do not work properly) and lanai off the 2nd BR house for five nights. One has to walk through the 2nd BR to get to the lanai and pool area which is awkward when traveling with another couple. The only other way to get to the pool is by walking through the garage and out the side door.
The two king beds are in need of new mattresses (uncomfortable and one is sagging) and better sheets (600+ thread count cotton instead of polyester/cotton sheets would be nice). There are plenty of good quality towels in the house as well as pool towels but we did not find beach towels. However, there is a sign in the laundry room letting one know that you will be charged for each missing beach towel (I am guessing the owner considers the white pool towels beach towels).
The kitchen is stocked with most of what you need to cook and serve meals with. A newer coffee maker and toaster would be great to have as well as better dishes. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood and within a few miles of a grocery store, fitness center, restaurants, and about 10-45 minute drive to a beach. We went to Barefoot Beach State Park, Marcos and Sanibel Island and all the beaches are great!
I would like to mention a couple more things that one will only find out when staying at this home. There is no ceiling fan in the second bedroom and the curtains do not block out the daylight! Sleeping in is out of the question. The curtains in the living room do not block out the daylight either and it seems that several panels are missing. One last thing, for those expecting to park their car in the garage, it is not possible since there is all kinds of stuff stored in the garage (bikes, coolers, beach chairs).
This review might come across as extremely picky, but I have stayed in many five star AIRBNB's all over the world and attention to detail (welcome note and gift basket) is what earns them five stars! Hopefully this critical review will assist the owner to make changes in the home and assure a five star experience for future guests!
My family and I rented this property for a week and loved it. It was nice to wake up every morning and have the pool to keep the kids occupied while we cooked breakfast and planned our day. The beach is not far away and makes for a great bike ride in the evening. Its a very cozy place to stay if your looking to just hang out and relax as well. The host was quick to respond when we reached out.
Will be back!
We had a fantastic family vacation here (4 yo in tow) - everything we needed, cozy, clean, great decor, nice and quiet neighborhood. Was nervous night one with a few doors that go outside but quickly settled in and not a concern at all for the duration of our stay. Beach chairs and toys were great, plenty of beach towels and linens. Backyard and screened patio made our trip - clean, relaxing and beautiful. Will be back in the future!
Very nice place for vacation
We enjoyed our stay here very much
