Light and bright, upscale, spacious 3 bedroom / 3 bathroom villa with cathedral ceilings and den located on quiet, quaint street in the exclusive and most desirable Park Shore area of Naples, FL.

Our vacation villa is located in the very best area of Naples, FL, located WEST of 41. Our vacation villa is close to everything with its super short walk to the beach, restaurants, shops including the upscale waterside shops and Naples Philharmonic now known Artis.

Spacious, Luxury, Updated, Super Clean Villa has lots of modern style with a WOW feeling as soon as you enter through the private tropical garden courtyard and into the front door with its 20 foot high, bright and airy cathedral ceilings. Lots of sunshine / natural light (Southern exposure) throughout this entire villa home.

The villa has an open floor plan with large tile throughout the first floor of home. Brand new hardwood floors (hickory) installed in the upstairs 2 bedrooms. No carpeting for us allergy sensitive people in this home. The large master suite is located on the first floor allowing privacy to spread out for your entire family. The villa home has a fully equipped kitchen with newer cabinets granite counter top, as well as drinking water filtration system (which will save you the expense and burden of needing to spend money on bottled water during your stay).

MASTER BEDROOM / EN SUITE

King sized bed in master bedroom, extra large EN SUITE with large soaking tub and a separate shower area. as well as separate toilet room. 3 closets including a large walk in closet complete this master suite. The bed is a super comfortable newer memory / tempur-pedic style mattress. I have had MANY renters send me emails upon returning home, asking me to let them know the name brand of my mattresses!

SECOND BEDROOM:

King bed in guest bedroom #1 with large closet - beautiful new hand scraped hickory hardwood floors. We feel that carpet irritates allergies, therefore we have eliminated all of the carpet from our villa replacing it with beautiful hickory hardwood floors. The bed is a newer super comfortable tempur-pedic style bed.

About Michele D

Happily married, mother of 3 grew up in Cleveland, Ohio and felt starved of the Ocean / Gulf the majority of my life. As a result of my strong desire to be near the water and out of the cold, our family purchased this wonderful spacious vacation home in 2003.. In addition to owning and personally managing this outstanding vacation villa property, I am also a licensed Florida realtor. Please let me know should you be in the market to purchase your own vacation home, secondary home or investment property. I would be happy to personally show you all of the great things to see and do in our area as well as show you a variety of listings that meet your personal criteria for your own future home. In addition, I am happy to help with your vacation rental searches for homes (90 day stay or longer) other then my own should you need something that my home does not provide or should my home be booked during your desired dates.

Michele D purchased this house in 2003

Why Michele D chose Naples

We purchased this home as it is within a short walking distance from the beach and literally EVERYTHING wonderful! Short walk or bike ride (we supply the bikes for you to use) to the beach, waterside shops, tons of great restaurants, grocery store, and just about everything else our vacation renter guests could hope for.

Please check out our other two vacation rental properties also listed on homeaway Listing # 3853389 is a 3 bedroom / 2 bath coach style home in a resort community in North Naples. Listing #166822 is a 2 bedroom / 2 bath beach front condo on Fort Myers Beach.

What makes this house unique

We live full time (I am an easy to reach local owner) within a few miles of this vacation villa location therefore we are local (not long distance) owners and always available, friendly and willing to help guests. We are very particular about keeping the villa well maintained, updated and modern as well as clean and clutter free!. Our vacation home is a wonderful option for people of all ages who want to feel as though they are at a 5 star hotel, yet at only a fraction of the cost with lots of great living space and privacy for all.

PLEASE SEE MY OTHER TWO RENTAL PROPERTIES ALSO ADVERTISED ON HOMEAWAY THE LISTING NUMBERS ARE 3852289 FOR MY NORTH NAPLES TARPON BAY RESORT HOME AND 166822 FOR MY BEACH FRONT CONDO ON FORT MYERS BEACH.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Michele; We had a great time in your beautiful home. Nice private beach, ate breakfast at the Cove coffee shop, farmers market on Saturday, dinner at Yabba's and the Turtle Club. We shopped the streets of 5th and Tin City and partied hardy for our birthdays at Hob Nob and Blu Martini. On plane now to head North. Thank you for making our 60th birthday special! Cheryl

We have just returned from two fabulous weeks at this wonderful property. It is very spacious, beautifully presented and is located in one of the best districts of Naples close to beaches, restaurants and all the local attractions. Michelle the owner, is a true professional and takes great care in ensuring that guests have a wonderful time - she has thought of everything from the free bikes, the gas barbecue, the beautiful furnishings - she even provides a pass to a private beach and inflatables for the pool. We would certainly visit this property again and would recommend it to friends and family.

Lovely property in a quiet and convenient location

  • 4 of 5

The property is well equipped, spacious and clean. Every effort has been made to make you feel at home whilst on vacation. The assistance received from the property owner was excellent. The rental price included little extras like a beach pass for a private beach and bikes which is great way to explore the surrounding area! I would recommend this property.

Lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

The only bad thing I have to say about my week stay at this lovely villa is that the weather did not cooperate with us....at all. The entire week was rainy and windy. So, I'm very pleased that the villa was everything and more than what I expected. The entire house is gorgeous, bright and airy. The spaces are very well thought out and very comfortable. Though we had a terrible week weather wise....we were glad to have the pool and the hot tub to keep us busy. We enjoyed every minute we could. The house was very well stocked and very clean. Thank you for sharing your property with us. Will definitely be back......

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Ana for your nice review of our Naples villa. As you know, we were also traveling during part of your stay and we too experienced rain every day of our vacation. I thought of you also as I kept an eye on the Naples weather last week as well, and had hoped you found enough things indoors to keep busy. I am happy to know that you all had a great stay and enjoyed the covered pool and hot tub area. I hope that you were able to get some shopping in as well as our area has some of the greatest shops as well as fabulous restaurants. It was my pleasure to host you and your family at our villa and I will look forward to hearing back from you the next time your travels bring you back to Naples, FL. Thank you again for choosing our villa for your stay, we appreciate :) Michele

3rd stay at this "happy place"

  • 5 of 5

We have just enjoyed our 3rd stay at this beautiful beach villa in our favorite vacation place of all Florida - Naples. The villa has been improved (although we have always found it to be a gorgeous, perfect, property) with each of our 3 visits. The most recent improvement this trip was new furnishings. The villa has always exceeded our expectations with how immaculately maintained and clean it is with each of our visits. We continue to return to this location as the home is perfect and everything we need is within walking distance. We have 2 older teenage sons who are able to walk themselves to Clam pass beach where they are able to grab lunch, fish (Michelle the owner keeps fishing poles for people to use in her garage) swim and be comfortable, safe and independent all day. My wife is obsessed with Waterside shops which is just a very short walk down the street. In fact she loves the coffee blend at the Norstrom Cafe and logs in part of her many ""fit bit" steps each day as an excuse to walk over to the shops and enjoy her special coffee. The entire area has more restaurants then we (even after 3 visits) have had the time to try. Our favorite restaurants are over at Waterside Shops. We especially like Brick Tops Restaurants, Brio, California Pizza and several evening walks over to their heaven which is also called the Haagen Dazs ice cream store. The other restaurants we like are located directly across from the Park Shore Beach (Michele always gives us a free pass to this exclusive / private beach. The villa across the street is Venetian Village. Our favorite restaurants so far over there are M Waterfront Grille (on the bay and has delicious food), also T Michaels Steakhouse on the opposite side of the villa but also on the bay, most amazing steaks. We also love Mira Mara, best Italian food I have had in years and they have early bird 3 course meals, very economical and always far exceed our expectations. Have I mentioned Ben & Jerry's? Hey, we are always on vacation so those calories clearly do not count. As for Michelle, we can't say enough wonderful things about her as her attention to detail, and her genuine interest in making sure our stay is wonderful has always been a comfort. We plan to continue to enjoy this perfect vacation villa rental for family getaways for many more years to come.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Mike! It is always such a compliment when a family returns to my home several years in a row for their annual family vacation. I could not be more pleased and flattered that you return every year and I certainly look forward to your next booking.:) Thank you also for taking the time to post such a nice, comprehensive review of our villa and of our general area of Naples. I agree that the shops and restaurants within walking distance are the best in our area and words cannot describe the fabulous beach options. :) I appreciate very much your repeat bookings and again for your nice review. Take care and keep in touch! Michele

Beautiful home that felt like a spa

  • 5 of 5

We have been going to southern Florida every winter since 2002. This was without a doubt the loveliest home we have ever rented and very clean and well maintained. Everything worked. The cathedral ceiling gave a feeling of spaciousness. The listing was very accurate regarding the layout and amenities. We didn't know what west of 41 meant until we arrived! This was the place to be - one mile from beautiful beaches and close to restaurants and shopping ranging from modest to waterfront luxury. We loved the screened in hot tub and heated pool and our guests enjoyed the privacy of the upstairs bedrooms and bath. The large master suite is on the first floor and is incredible for the number of walk in closets. Unlike other properties, the owner has ample cleaning supplies in all bathrooms, kitchen and the laundry room to encourage you to keep the property as spotless as you found it. She was always available to us and cheerfully answered any questions we had (where could we take our dog for a walk or where to get nails or hair done) and took prompt care of any minor issues that came up. The owner recommended nearby attractions, restaurants and shopping, including the fabulous Best of Everything, where silver jewelry can be purchased very inexpensively. We always cross our fingers when booking online but this was totally unnecessary for this property. We can highly recommend it without reservation.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Connie for all of your nice comments / compliments both in person when we met and also with your very nice, detailed review of our home and of our general area. I appreciate especially the fact that you have labeled our home as the best you have stayed in during all (many years) of your winter trips down to Florida, now that is quite the compliment! I am truly humbled, and flattered by your kind words :) It was certainly my pleasure to guide you in the right direction with respects to coordinating your forwarding mail, nail, hair salons and even your sweet pup's new Naples grooming salon and doggie park options :) All important information that I am always happy to provide to anyone who asks :) Since I am a local owner and area Realtor as well, I am always happy to help :) Thank you again for choosing our villa for your winter Holiday and we will certainly look forward to your next return stay to Naples, FL! Thanks again and keep in touch! Michele
