About James Fine

We live and work in New Jersey and enjoy visits to Old Naples with family and friends.

James Fine purchased this house in 2013

Why James Fine chose Florida South Gulf Coast

We admired this home for many years and believe that it represents the best character of Old Naples' landmark cottages. The original 1940 cottage was damaged and swept several blocks away during hurricane Donna in 1960. In 1992 a local builder and craftsman relocated the original cottage to its current site and expanded its' size dramatically. The home has original details and workmanship including Miami-Dade pine flooring and covered wrap around porches. It has been meticulously restored and improved resulting in a quality home.

What makes this house unique

The location allows guests to walk to the beach( 6 blocks), local activities,art shows and events at Cambier Park as well as dining and shopping on Naples Fifth Avenue 2 blocks away. Championship Tennis and playground are nearby at Cambier Park.

The house has a lovely traditional feel to it and is centrally located. Naples town is a short walk as is the beach. Beautiful property in a beautiful place.

We stayed at the charming Royal Palm Cottage for 8 days in late September and had a fabulous time! Six adults and two toddlers -- plenty of room for all of us. The home was impeccably clean. The beds were as nice as any 5-star hotel, multiple air conditioning units kept the entire house, even the second floor, cool and comfortable. Beautifully remodeled. The pool was just the right size. Location was perfect -- so close to beach, restaurants, shopping. Would love to take my family there again! Thank you, Jim, for being a very responsive owner and for helping make this such a memorable vacation!

Outstanding experience from initial enquiry to booking to stay

  • 5 of 5

An outstanding experience - Jim was great to deal with; responsive, attentive and answers/recommendations in all areas!

From initial enquiry to the booking, to payments, to the actual stay to repayment of deposit the flow and experience was excellent. Recommendations were very helpful and all we tried were great.

The house itself is perfect - right balance of design and thought yet relaxed and practical. Fantastic location, great facilities in and around the house, beautiful rooms and fittings.

The ideal summer house - jealous! Will be back. Thanks for making it a great holiday.

Great house for a family get together. Enough space to spread out but come back together too. Location was perfect. Able to walk everywhere! Even though the pool was on the smaller side, it was perfect for a dip and to play with small kids. Would recommend this to anybody, especially a large family with older kids.

Awesome place & Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Our entire family loved Royal Palm Cottage! We were a family of five including our 3 kids (age 20; 19; and 12). It was perfect for us. James was so responsive to all of my questions. The location allowed us to walk to everything even the beach. We loved being only 2 blocks from town. The house also included everything that a mom needs to handle her family for a week. The kitchen was fully stocked. Plus, it really helps when the pantry has spices and condiments that you need for cooking without needing to buy everything at the grocery store. We will definitely be back unless we decide to buy our own house in Naples:) Thanks James!

We found paradise at this Naples home!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this Naples Royal Palm Cottage by James Fine for my family (of 6) vacation in July 2016. This property was simply amazing and absolutely exceeded any expectations I had going into it. The home is every bit as beautiful as the pictures show it to be on the VRBO website. The property is clean and extremely well maintained and it shows through out the house. This beach home is beautifully decorated, it has a lot of beach house charm. The furnishings are high quality and comfortable. The bathrooms are all newly remodeled and clean. We cooked most of our meals in and I found the kitchen wonderfully stocked with all the necessary dishes and supplies. It came with beach supplies (umbrellas, chairs, coolers) that we took to the beach every day. It was very hot the week we were in Naples and the swimming pool was a bonus treat at the end of a busy day. (the house's A/C works fantastic!) With 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, there was plenty of room for my family to spread out and get their own space. The location was superb! Very close to the beach, pier and shopping. The part of the beach we were closest to at this property felt very private, less crowded than the more crowded beaches further to the north and south (still walking distance, though) of where we were. We felt like we were in our own little paradise. My family was very comfortable staying at the Royal Palm Cottage and I will definitely remember this should we plan another vacation to Naples and I will definitely recommend it to all my family and friends. James Fine quickly replied to any inquiry I made regarding the property. He even sent me a listing of all the great places to eat and visit during our stay. Our experience at the Royal Palm Cottage was over the top excellent!!
