About Naples Florida Vacation Homes

Here at Naples Florida Vacation Homes, LLC our team of professionals are dedicated to managing a fine portfolio of vacation rental properties suited to any length of stay. Are you coming to Naples for a professional conference and are looking for an alternative to hotel accommodations, perhaps a HomeAway from home would be a better fit? Perhaps you're organizing or attending a destination wedding - our Knickerbocker Estate welcomes your special event and our vacation rentals are great places to gather your guests for overnight accommodations. Or if it is all about a great holiday, perhaps you are looking for a beach house to enjoy the world-class beaches of Naples. For those looking for a golf vacation, check-out the numerous vacation condos in Lely Resort with no-minimum stay. Any length of stay is warmly welcomed at NaplesFloridaVacationHomes. Whether it be for a couple of nights, a weekend getaway, a week long vacation, a week and a half holiday, a few weeks or a month long stay or longer.

Why Naples Florida Vacation Homes chose Rural Estates

This home is beautifully set on a large block of private acreage, allowing for up to 20 overnight guests, and events of all kinds. This country estate is filled with beautiful artwork, features a courtyard and pool, and has many other highlighting features. Why book numerous hotel rooms to accommodate your family reunion, business trip, or weekend getaway when you can all stay under the same roof and enjoy the privacy and relaxation of a property all to yourself?

What makes this estate unique

It is very hard to find a rental in Naples that allows nightly rentals. We feature a property that is the closest you can get to the beach without needing a 30 day minimum. You can come for a night...or stay for a week. We really love the area, but the home itself is the best feature for us. From the open pool area, to the mango trees out back, to the updated kitchen and bedrooms, the home features it all. We allow you to check in anytime of the night, as we have a keyless entry. We really are here to cater to the guests and offering the best services.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our family of 11 with a baby stayed at the Knickerbocker. I had requested a high chair, baby bed and stroller. All of the items were waiting on us. We hired a cleaning person thru the Vacation Homes and they did an awesome job for us while we were at the house. The house itself, very quiet, great pool with cool refreshing water, the beds were very comfortable, an awesome kitchen which is where most families congregate, lots of room you never felt on top of each other, I would stay there again. THis house helped make our family vacation for my parents 50th a great one!!!! ps---the people at Naples Florida Vacation Homes were very easy to deal with.

Pefect Rental

  • 5 of 5

I wanted to express my thanks and gratitude to your team for everything you did to ensuring the success of our Rabbinic Retreat at the Knickerbocker last week. You made your readily available (I very much appreciated that you gave me your cell phone number) and provided superb customer service. The venue was a great fit for our needs and our group was very pleased. Thanks again for all your help and we look forward to hopefully working together with you in the future.

Recent Stay a Success

  • 5 of 5

Just wanted to take a few minutes and let you know how pleased we were with the venue and with Vincent help with my daughter's recent wedding at the Knickerbocker. First, the venue itself was very nice. It allowed my daughter and her bridal party to all be there together and get ready together as well as the groom as his groomsmen. It was spacious and the lanai offered a nice option to have dinner out there. It was definitely enjoyed by all.

Vincent was extremely helpful and very nice from the first time we spoke. He went out of his way to accommodate us seeing the property as our schedules are all crazy and we could not all see it together. He's definitely a gem of an employee, he represented your company with utmost loyalty making sure that we knew and adhered to all the rules of renting the venue. I would recommend working with him and renting the venue anytime.

Thank you for providing us both with an awesome venue and amazing person to work with.

Eight Golfers

  • 4 of 5

Pros: Vincent and Kristin were friendly to work with. T he

house is very spacious and accomodated eight individual

sleepers just fine. T he location was fine being fairly remote

but yet only 10 minutes from I75. T he cost of the house for a

weeks stay and a somewhat full house was of decent value

per person.

Cons: With having eight bedrooms and 12 different beds,

only having 4 bathrooms seemed too few. Along the same

line, having one gate remote was too few, having six chairs

in the kitchen and zero bar stools in kitchen is too few. Z ero

blenders is too few. Also, there was a terrible stench in the

garage that needed to be dealt with soon. As a side note,

our group also thought that the artwork/decor did not match

the grandness of the structure.

One added amenity that I feel could be provided by either

the owner or the property manager is a pre arrival service to

make the stay feel more complete. It could work like this: T he

renter would provide a shopping list for general or specific

items to get the stay started, i.e. beverages, soap, shampoo,

paper towels, snacks, misc. grocery items, etc...and as a

service, these items would be awaiting the arrival of the

rentor. You can always have an addendum on the rental

agreement to take care of handling the cost of this.

Personally, I think some of this should be provided and part

of whatever price you agree on but either way, I think it

would be a worthwhile added touch for your customer.
