The best location to vacation in all of Naples! This beautifully furnished and decorated 3 bedroom/2 bath home is located 1/2 mile from the Vanderbilt beach and immediately down the street from the shopping and dining of the brand new Mercato lifestyle center, including Whole foods, movie theater and Trader Joe's.
Feel like at home in the master bedroom with a king size bed and private master bathroom. The second bedroom is furnished with a king size bed and the third bedroom has 2 twins.
This home in the middle of its resort location presents everything you'll need on your vacation within true walking distance. Everything is yours within 1 mile of this home including the Ritz Carlton. Steps to a scenic walk and jogging path that takes you around the beautiful Vanderbilt/ Gulfshore Drive areas and directly to the beach. The Floridian charm of this home along with its updates, quiet fenced back yard, beautiful pool and location make for a truly relaxing, fun and enjoyable vacation in Naples.
Come and enjoy the white sand beaches and forget how cold you were up north. Sit on the Lanai, relax and enjoy a cocktail or a good book while watching the beautiful sunset.
Pool heat is optional, please speak to one of our representatives for more information.
My mother and I traveled from Cincinnati, OH for a fancy ladies' trip! This home was the perfect venue. It is artfully decorated with functional, comfy furnishings. Especially the king beds! We slept better there than we do at home. The pool/patio is like your own private oasis complete with chaise lounges and beautiful, flowering landscapes! The place is also only a 2-3 minute drive to the beach and the owners have provided beach chairs, umbrellas, and coolers to create the perfect, easy beach day for guests.
Being a fancy lady trip, shopping was definitely on our agenda. There was no shortage of fun places to browse such as Mercato and Coconut Point outdoor malls. 5th Ave. in downtown Naples seemed the place to be for dinners and we particularly enjoyed 7th Avenue Social- delicious food, great atmosphere, and a talented live band.
I would certainly recommend this home to friends and family. We will return!
THE HOUSE WAS A GREAT SPACE.....LARGE OPEN ROOMS, COMFORTABLE TO ENTERTAIN IN, AESTHETICALLY APPOINTED, LARGE MASTER BEDROOM WITH TV, ENSUITE BATH, AND GOOD CLOSET SPACE. OTHER BEDROOMS WERE THE SAME. QUIET NEIGHBORHOOD CLOSE TO MANY RESTAURANTS, GROCERY STORES, RETAIL THERAPY, AND MOVIES. MUST TRY RESTAURANTS: BHA BHA; O'MEI, MICHELBOB'S FOR BAR-B-CUE, RANDY'S, HAROLD'S, AND I.M. TAPAS.
THE BACK YARD WAS JUST BEAUTIFUL. WONDERFULLY LANDSCAPED WITH BLOOMS EVERYWHERE INCLUDING GARDENIA, PASSION FLOWER, AND BLOOD GRASS. THE POOL COULD NOT HAVE BEEN MORE PERFECT.. IN FULL SUN WITH SHADED SEATING AREAS.
KAYAKING IN THE MANGROVES, SUNSET CRUISE FROM PURE NAPLES, GULFSHORE PLAYHOUSE AND THE MERCATO'S LUXURY MOVIE THEATER.
THE PROPERTY MANAGER WAS EFFICIENT AND ALWAYS AVAILABLE FOR ANY QUESTIONS WE HAD.
WE HAVE RENTED IN NAPLES FOR YEARS AND THIS HOME IS A KEEPER.
The home is fairly nice and looks like it has been renovated recently.
We were disappointed that we did not know certain things about the house before we rented it.
1- the owners have locked the thermostat such that you cannot set it lower than 70 degrees. This is a nuisance and we felt it was too warm at night, even with the ceiling fans on. We're paying for the property and we should be able to set the thermostat as needed.
2- the owners/rental agents didn't provide things we thought should be included. We came down for vacation, not to go shopping for cleaning supplies, soap, dish soap, trash bags, toilet paper and other items. We spent money on these items, and the time and energy to go get them, after searching and finding they were not supplied already. The owners are particular about how things are handled with the trash, yet no trash bags are provided.
To be required to buy soap for the sinks and showers was truly surprising. Who doesn't provide this?
3- there is no garage. Perhaps we should have known this from the picture on the web site, but we like having our auto inside at night. There are two bikes made available for riding, but they are stored in the 3rd bedroom. Where do you put them if you don't want them in the bedroom and aren't riding? There's no place to do this except perhaps out by the pool.
We had some noisy neighbors on the side and in the back, and since the pool area/back yard is locked into the neighbor proximity, it was not very relaxing at times.
We have stayed in Naples for 30 years, and owned a home 1 block away from this one. We are very familiar with the neighborhood and Naples in general. We've found that for the money this home was expensive for what we received, especially having to pay extra to have the pool heated for the week.
From the moment we arrived at this beautiful home, our vacation was finally underway! The decor was absolutely stunning and inviting. Not only was the home beautiful, but it had everything we could have hoped for in a vacation home. The linens were of the highest quality, the beds were so comfortable, the kitchen was appointed perfectly with everything we could possibly need to prepare a meal "at home".
We really enjoyed the wonderful heated pool with the lovely, lush, tropical landscaping. Relaxing poolside is one of my favorite things while on vacation and it was the perfect setting. There were plenty of chaises, a nice dining table and a grill for cookouts, which we really appreciated.
The multiple televisions (one in each bedroom as well as the living room) were a nice plus although we kept busy most evenings enjoying the nearby Mercato area.
This was at the top of my family's list for vacation rentals and I have no doubt we will return! Oh..I almost forgot to mention...this place was sparkling clean, fresh and very new! We loved it!! A big "Thank You" to the owners who seemed to think of everything!!
We just finished up 2 weeks in this lovely home! I can't tell you how hard it was to leave! We found this house to be perfectly located, beautifully decorated, and thoughtfully appointed!
(Just to name 1 detail - I loved the magnified make-up mirrors in both bathrooms! That's something that I always have difficulty without, when we go on vacations or trips!) Between the pool & the landscaping, we felt like we had traveled to our own private oasis! We enjoyed dining at many of the very nearby restaurants... from happy hours to dinners, this area was perfect! Be sure to visit The Mercato directly across the road from this neighborhood! Shops, restaurants, spa's, luxury movie theatre, Whole Foods! Loved it! No need to go too far from this home to get to everything! We also loved walking to both of the beaches, and riding bikes throughout the neighborhood ... and even down to Mel's Diner for lunch! It was so pleasant at the house and around the pool area, that a few days we never even left home! We picked up some fresh seafood at Randy's Fish Market - just a couple blocks away, and used the gas grill, and dined by the pool! The kitchen is very well stocked with cookware, utensils, dishes, glasses... I can't imagine needing anything but the food! Some days it was a little cooler out - low to mid 60's, yet the southern exposure gave us all the warmth we needed, so were able to continue using the heated pool throughout the 2 week stay!
We are from NY, and we had snow & much cold before our trip... It's possible, I suppose, that we were a little more easily pleased than some... just because we got to leave that mess behind. But honestly... this was the nicest place we've ever stayed, and we've been to Naples several times a year for the last 5 or 6 years! I can't say enough good things... we look forward to renting this home again!
