About Doug and Judy Moses

Doug and I have decided to retire in sunny Naples. We moved here September 2011 and have been working on our little oasis. I was a Vice-President of Personal Lines in a very large Insurance Agency and Doug worked with recovering alcoholics and drug addicts in Connecticut. We both had stressful jobs so we decided it was time to retire. So here we are in beautiful Naples.

Doug and Judy Moses purchased this studio in 2011

Why Doug and Judy Moses chose Vanderbilt Beach

Why not be on the beautiful Gulf Coast. Ideal location located 30-45 minutes from Marco, Sanibel Island and the Fort Myers Airport. If you don't have a vehicle Taxi's and run 24 hours a day.

What makes this studio unique

Mercado shopping is within walking where you will find several restaurants, upscale movie theaters, shopping, whole foods. BEST of all we are 4 blocks to Vanderbilt beach and the public beach. Whatever denomination you are we have the Church in NAPLES.

Excellent Vacation Rental!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation rental is superb! Doug and Judy are excellent hosts who really go out of their way to make sure your stay is pleasant. Our flight got in earlier than the check in time and they were gracious enough to let us show up early. A designated parking spot for our car was great. We were greeted with a bottle of wine and a nice explanation of where the amenities were located. We felt right at home from the start. The cottage is small (which is highlighted in the description) but everything is laid out in a way that makes the most use of the limited space. It was plenty big for us. The bed was comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook our meals. Doug and Judy gave us a nice overview of some of the many great restaurants in the area and we especially appreciated the state park pass. We spent most days at the beach there and it was super! Couldn't have asked for a better vacation. If we are headed back to Naples again, we would be thrilled if we could stay here again! Thank you Doug and Judy!

Amazing holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We just wrapped up an amazing week at Doug and Judy’s little cottage and we’re already planning ahead for our next visit. Every little details has been provided so you can just relax and enjoy.

We arrived in the wee hours after an exhausting trip and lost luggage and were delighted to find little toiletry bags, a bottle of wine and snacks awaiting us. The bikes and beach chairs are super handy and we strolled over to the shops often. Just a delightful holiday! And perfect weather too.

Thanks so much!!

A perfect beach getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This is our first time staying in a VRBO and we couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay. The cottage is so cute, clean, and quiet. It is also convenient to everything. Doug and Judy are wonderful hosts! They are so thoughtful and kind and we felt as though we were staying with dear friends. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer! We can't wait to go back and stay with them again!!

Owner's Response: Kelly and her husband were a very nice couple to host. They were always on the run and seeing her parents. Her parents also live a little North of Marco so they had a great chance to visit with them doing lunches and dinners, etc. Hope to see them again sometime. Doug and Judy

Very private, quiet, clean and well equiped

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the little house in the host's garden for a week. We loved the location close to good shops, restaurants and the best beach in Naples, Delnor Wiggins. The pass they provided to the beach was great giving access anytime. Doug gave us good tips about where to eat. The property is well equipped and spotlessly clean. It is very small, a bit like staying in a studio apartment but far more private. The pull down bed is very comfortable.

Owner's Response: Well I don't know why this only received a 4 star since every renter knows it's is 300 sq feet. The renter themselves were perfectly happy with the unit and it seems like a great review to me. J&D Moses
