Peter and Catherine Goodin purchased this House in 2002

Why Peter and Catherine Goodin chose Vanderbilt Beach

This house was designed for easy accessibility and privacy within and without. None of the bedrooms share a wall with any other bedroom. The master has its own access to the spacious screened lanai and pool. The swimming pool is surrounded by tropical foliage to create a peaceful, serene, restful place for lounging, reading, and dining al fresco. Exterior windows are screened with palms and other foliage to complete this retreat. We live right here in Naples full time.

What makes this House unique

The single best reason to come to Naples is the beautiful beach, great golf courses and nature lovers paradise. The single best reason to rent Blue Heron is that you can get there on foot, by bike, or by car. We live here in Naples full time and are always happy to answer any of your questions! Beach towels, beach toys, and beach chairs are all provided. Don't get stuck miles from the beach! Consult our extensive booklet, in the house, about the many enjoyable things to do and see!

                                                                    Patricia D.

                                                                    We had a delightful stay at Blue Heron. The house was spacious and well equipped and had been cleaned well. We loved the layout. The main users of the house were my husband and myself with 2 sets of visitors at different times of our stay so there was a maximum of 4 people at any one time. The house does accommodate 8 but we felt that 6 would definitely be the maximum you'd want to have there. The location of Blue Heron is ideal - near some wonderful beaches and good shopping. Naples and surrounding areas are delightful. If we have one 'complaint' it would be that the house, while very well presented, does need some updating but, all in all, we had a fantastic month there.

                                                                    Perfect family getaway

                                                                    Amy G.

                                                                    Our stay at Blue Heron could not have been better. Peter and Cate were very responsive and accommodating to us. The house was in wonderful condition and had literally everything we could need for our vacation, which is saying a lot because we had a 14 month of baby with us! The Goodins had everything we needed to make their home fit or a family with a young child (stroller, booster seat, pack and play, beach toys, baby monitor etc.) It made our trip very stress free. Even if you don't have a young child, this home is great for a get away. The pool area was very private and had a great large outdoor dining area that was also protected from the sun. The beach was incredibly close by-both Vanderbilt and Delnor Wiggins, several options for grocery shopping within a mile or two, and lots of options for shopping and eating nearby. The neighborhood was very quiet, and pleasant to walk around in.

                                                                    Nice Naples snowbird retreat

                                                                    Richard O.Altoona Pa

                                                                    This was a nice quiet home within walking distance of the beach. It is very well set up as a vacation home. Everything is well labeled for easy access. Kitchen is well equipped with everything you need. Bikes were an added plus. Pool was great even in January. This was our second visit and we had a relaxing month. Loved the screened in pool area. Really close to Wiggins pass which is a great beach retreat. Close to everything but in a nice area. Cate and Pete were excellent hosts and very responsive should you have a question or problem. Very quick to return your damage deposit. Really didn't have to bring anything with you.

                                                                    Like coming home

                                                                    Susan S.

                                                                    This is our second stay at Blue Heron and it's like being home, only with no snow, and a pool in the backyard! Cate and Peter are responsive to any question or issues, although we have not experienced any problems. The boat trips from Tin City in Naples, especially the Eco tours and sunset trips are great. We generally do not go too far. Why leave a salt water pool and large screened lanai to hassle with crowds?!

                                                                    Neighbor is friendly and safe. Great place!

                                                                    Quiet, nice neighborhood - close to the beach

                                                                    Sabine N.

We loved having breakfast and dinner on the lanai, enjoying the quietness and watching birds and squirrels. The owners Peter and Cate are looking after the house by themselves with great care. We enjoyed meeting them and sure will be back in the future.

Our 'Blue Heron' home with a NEW POOL 2014 is located within an easy walk to Vanderbilt Beach. Our spacious three/four bedroom home, with two baths, was custom designed and built in 2002.

One guest bedroom has a queen bed; the other has two twins beds. The fourth bedroom has a Queen hide-a-bed and 2 closets and is furnished as a den/TV room. French doors from both the Great room and Master suite lead out to the new pool and a sunny @ 30'X30' lanai and a lush, private, tropical backyard.
