About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)


This villa located at The Dunes at Vanderbilt Beach is one of just a few villa homes available for rent. The property feels like an exclusive resort. There is a gated entrance, heated swimming pool with spa and waterfalls, clubhouse with tennis and fitness center and a wonderful poolside bar with food in addition to a beautiful restaurant.

This three bedroom, two bath, two car garage carriage home at the Dunes at Vanderbilt Beach was professionally decorated. This villa is the closest unit to the tennis courts, pool, hot tub, restaurant, fitness center and spa yet extremely private and quiet.

The huge master suite is set aside from the other two bedrooms. It has a four poster king size bed, large flat screen TV with DVD player, sitting area, access to the lanai, walk in closet, and a large bathroom featuring 'his and hers' sinks, private toilet, whirlpool soaking tub and large separate shower.

The second bedroom offers a queen size bed, TV and DVD player. The third bedroom offers two twin beds, TV and DVD player. These two bedrooms share a full bath.

The living room has a large L shaped leather sofa and a large lounge chair with ottoman. There is also a large flat screen TV with Blu Ray DVD player. There is a separate sitting area with a queen size sleeper sofa and two chairs. All rooms having ceiling fans.

The living room opens to the screened in lanai overlooking the lake and in close proximity to the resort pool.

There is a two car garage and a full size washer and dryer. The house also has a monitored security system.

The 'Dunes' is centrally located just a short drive to the Shoppes at Mercato, (tons of restaurants, great movie theatre and Whole Foods), cleaners, a pharmacy, the finest restaurants, many top-of-the-line golf courses, boat rentals, fishing, movies, theatre and the best shopping!

This is a 'No Smoking' rental.

The Gulf of Mexico is a short walk away where you can watch the beautiful sunset. Vanderbilt Beach is one of the top beaches in Naples. Stay for a month or two - you will not want to leave!

About Cathy Murphy

We are a married couple who lives in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania. We purchased this property so that we have a sunny place to retire to when our youngest graduates from high school (4 more years!). Naples has so much to offer and we fell in love with it on our first visit there.

Cathy Murphy purchased this house in 2009

Why Cathy Murphy chose Florida South Gulf Coast

This unit has all there is to offer at the Dunes. A garage, screened in porch overlooking the lake, location close to pool and tennis and a first floor walk out with easy access. The floor plan is nicely laid out with the master bedroom separate from the rest of the unit. The kitchen is large and open to the unit.

What makes this house unique

Best pool in Naples, wonderful on site restaurant with catering, tennis courts with on site pro, easy walk to the Gulf, less than 5 minute drive to newly opened Whole Foods, lots of wonderful nearby restaurants and close to the airport.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property.

The property was very clean, well maintained and the decor was perfect for Florida.

We especially like the location for easy access to all activities offered at the Dunes.

The owners were always available to answer questions or solve any problems that might occur.

what is this?

  • 4 of 5

great location for entertaining our young Grandsons. Beach is walkable distance, which is a plus. Pool facilities nice. Generally very "kid" Friendly. Work out facility very nice. Gate staff a bit disorganized.

Would be nice to have access to fax machine, scanner, etc.

Pool bar very nice , staff very nice, drinks overpriced.

Nice to have indoor parking. We enjoyed not having to bother with an elevator.

Owners very nice regarding the use of their beach chairs, umbrellas etc.

Air conditioning system does not operate properly for some unknown reason the temp was found to be all the way down to 65 degrees when set at 75! And we followed the instructions on the thermostat!

I noticed that the filter needs to be changed, but I did not get a chance to replace it (forgot).

Some dishes were dirty in the cupboard.

Some of this feedback is petty, but I felt you would want all the feedback.

Overall we really loved this rental.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. We have not experienced a temperature control issue with the thermostat in the past so I will check in to that immediately. I am glad you enjoyed your stay and that you have decided to return for a full month next year also!

Fantastic Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at this property from July 28-Aug 14. Our 2 daughters and their families with children, ages from 6-13, visited at various times during this time period. The townhouse is just as pictured/described, cozy and comfortable, and the location is perfect. It is close to the pool, tennis courts, a short drive to the beaches, convenient to Naples and Coconut Point and many restaurants. I think this townhouse is in the best location of the entire resort!!! Everything is provided from many, many towels/beach towels, bed linens, beach chairs and kitchen supplies (if one wanted to cook a major meal). There is a bar at the pool that offers drinks and food.

At various times, we also used both sleeper sofas...I would recommend that the leather couch in the living room be used only for smaller children. I think adults might be uncomfortable but it was fine for the young kids. The cloth sofa sleeper was fine.

The owners were very accommodating and easy to work with. I hope that we can do this again sometime in the future and I would not hesitate to stay here again.

What a lovely getaway! A little slice of paradise. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The carriage home is beautifully decorated and homey. The property is gorgeous. The amenities plentiful! And just a short walk to the water. What's not to love?

  • 5 of 5

Your place at The Dunes is fabulous. The decor is top notch and your unit is spacious and convenient with the drive in garage. There is nothing you have missed. the location of your unit could not be better with the tennis and pool a few steps away. We loved our vacation in your place at the Dunes so much we are coming back for another month and hope to buy something. I definitely like the convenient and space of the carriage house over the high rise. Thanks for renting to us!
