All you have to do is show up and enjoy this great city and the beach. I think I have included most everything you'll need.

Naples enjoys very temperate weather year-round, with winter temperatures consistently five degrees higher than in central Florida -- and often ten degrees higher than in northern Florida. Temperatures average in the 70's and low 80's in the winter months. The summer season, at this most highly sought-after international vacation destination, has equally desirable weather with highs in the 80's to low 90's, and is cooled by gentle Gulf breezes.

Many other homes that you look at do not show their views because they don't have a good view. Most are filled with low quality K-Mart quality furniture, but we have HIGH QUALITY furniture. My wife is an Architect/Interior Designer so we know quality.

CONDO IS VERY CLOSE TO BEACH, better views of Gulf of Mexico, convenient to use beach. You'll understand why everybody wants to be close to the beach environment. It's unbelievable!

About Scott Sorenson

I have been operating rental/vacation properties for myself in Naples for 12 years. I moved from Minneapolis, Mn where I rented other homes. The past renters have added suggestions for 12 years so I have it organized for a great vacation. I have been asked every questions so I hope I'm organized and have what you want while in Naples. I purchased a condo and then a house, in the best location on Vanderbilt beach with heated pools and all the beach chairs/coolers etc. needed to keep everybody happy and return next year. Before that I have been in real estate brokerage for 30+ years and for 12 years in naples, so I can help renters buy a house. Buying in the right location is the most important decision.

Scott Sorenson purchased this condo in 2001

Why Scott Sorenson chose Florida South Gulf Coast

Vanderbilt Beach is the best part of Naples and we have the newest building who can rent by the week, when others are all 30 day minimu. Naples is the best location in Florida. I researched other cities in Florida and Naples was a newly built city with new infrastructure which creates easy movement around the city. We have the most resturants and golf courses while still being a small town. Naples has attracted better people who want these things and all price ranges of homes can still take addvantage of theses benefits. Warm during the winter with a cool breeze off the Gulf of Mexico with newer buildings everywhere. This is the best city in America.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo is the newest building on Vanderbilt beach who can rent by the week(The timeshare can rent weekly, but its really old and small units). All other condos like Reggat are 800 yards from the beach with no views. So when I purchased this condo I asked others why they purchased here: They said 'quiet building because of its thick walls, great views over the Gulf, largest pool, and alot of space around the building' to enjoy BBQ/fishing/tennis and a short walk (75 yards) to the beach with a Private Beach Access. Gated Security and building security with 4 units per floor. Our unit is on the 6ths level for great views.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Scott - We just wanted to thank you for everything this past week. Your rental home is beautiful and we had such a nice time on our vacation. It's so nice to be in a home with more of the comforts of a home rather than a hotel. And everything that your home had to offer was just perfect for us. From the comforts inside, to the pool, view of the gulf of mexico - It was just perfect. Thanks again! I will definitely keep your contact information for the next time we get down to Naples.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a great week over Christmas with our family at this well located condo. The place was exactly as advertised. The pool and tennis courts were easy to access, as was the beach. Would definitely rent this place again!

Great stay near the beach

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our time in Naples and in the condo. The condo itself was very clean and well equiped even including beach equipment. Having flown it was a real benefit that they were well equiped with beach gear from chairs, shades, buckets, towels, some small boards and even a cart to carry it all. My daughter thought it was great and made full use, with the beach being just a couple of minutes walk away. As we have a young daughter it was also nice to have a decent TV to watch a movie in the evening. The actual development itself seems well maintained and the pool was very nice. Not sure about the rest of the year, but in November was pretty much like having a private pool. Location wise is pretty convenient with shops, restaurants being a short drive away. Overall a great location for a beach vacation.

Awesome family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great trip in Naples. The condo was just a few minute walk to the beach, which we visited often. The beach itself was beautiful and not crowded at all. Naples is a bird sanctuary so there were plenty of birds to watch in awe. The condo was fully equipped with almost anything you'd need (I.e. Beach accessories, toiletries, a pack n play). It was also very clean and well decorated. Walmart wasn't too far so you can get groceries and cook in the condo or go down to the BBQ grill by the pool. They have made some updates to the pool and it is very nice. My kiddos enjoyed it a lot! When we return to Florida, we hope to stay here again!

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoy our condo and we do try hard to keep it in great shape. The pool was just refurbished and new furniture. The location is the best because you only walk 70 yards to our Private Beach thru our Private access which is locked. thanks scott

Wonderful condo with first-rate accommodations and views of the sunset and sunrise.

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay in this spacious and updated condo a with wonderful view of the Gulf. It has all the essentials to make it easy on you, even chairs and umbrellas with a cart for your beach outings. The private beach entry is just across the street and easy to access the beach. It's also close to everything - restaurants, grocery stores and shops. Overall, we really liked the easy booking process, the wonderful accommodations, the secluded beach and the great views!

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed the condo and its location for great sunset views. We do try to remodel and maintain the condo so its in great shape. The building location is by far its best benefit and we can rent it by the week and no other building on the beach can do this. thanks again Scott
