I was born in Portugal but grew up in the US as an American citizen. My wife also came from Europe as she was born in Germany. Our son was born in the USA. That is my lovely wife Dagmar and my son Jason in the picture. We also have a lovely little place in Algarve Portugal but it is very far away so we don't go as often as we would like. Our Florida home is beautiful but unfortunately we can only be there a few weeks each year or less. It is a shame that such a wonderful place sits empty much of the time so we decided that we would let some nice folks like you use it while we are not there. You get a great place to stay at a fair price and we get some money to help with the expenses. We have recently upgraded the home again! Some of the designer names you will find in our home include, Ralph Lauren, Armani Casa, Theodore Alexander, Maitland Smith, Christopher Guy, Marge Carson, Century custom made Top leather seating, Baker, Robb & Stucky and more. There is crystal by Swarovski, Waterford, and Mouth blown Italian crystal. The lighting both inside and out was done by a famous lighting artist. And on and on… Be careful of homeowners who 'reed the meter' on how much energy you can use. Imagine having to scrimp on pool heat or AC on your holiday. Make sure that you ask to see the owners Florida Tax certificate if they charged you tax. If they don’t have one then they are just charging you but not paying the tax. Make sure you get a rental agreement spelling out exactly what you get and what is expected of both parties. Make sure there is a local property manager who can resolve any issues. What if the AC stops working? What if there is a leak? When we decided to buy a vacation home in Florida we had many choices. We have friends who live in Florida on both coasts so we explored all the possibilities. I visited 236 properties on both coasts before we decided on our home. We wanted something special and a home we could be proud of but we also wanted a great deal.
Paul purchased this House in 2009
Why Paul chose Crown Pointe
No other place on earth makes us feel as relaxed and as happy with the single exception of Hawaii. For us the Gulf waters are warmer and cleaner then the waters on the east coast of Florida and Naples is very up-scale and always lovely manicured. Living in NY we truly appreciate the contrast. Our private community is lovely and highly manicured and it has amazing club house facilities and wonderful places to jog or ride a bike. We looked at houses in many Naples communities. Because we knew we wanted to be able to rent our property to short term guests we had to discover the private communities that allowed short term rentals. Basically if you want a great private community with club house facilities very close to the beach ours beats all the others hands down. Briarwood, Lely and ours are the only 3 private communities that offer clubhouse facilities that allow rentals for a period of less than a month LEGALLY and are within less than 10 miles from downtown Naples and the beach. All 3 communities are lovely and all of them have wonderful homes. Avoid Condos if you have children with you, kids want to play around the pool and local retirees can get very nasty when their bliss is disturbed. Lely offers wonderful world class Golf. That is its main benefit. It also has a great Players club that may or may not be included in your rental. It is however much farther from the beach and downtown than the others. Briarwood is not too far from downtown although you do have to drive around the airport to get there. It has a very minimal clubhouse with almost no services but it has the pizazz of having a guard 24/7, mostly for show as Naples is very safe. Homes in Briarwood near the Livingston Highway wall are very noisy day and night. NAPLES IS WONDERFUL, you deserve a great holiday. Have the best holiday ever!!
What makes this House unique
Our home is truly custom made. After we purchased it we had a substantial portion of it demolished and we extended it to include 2 very large Master Bedroom Suites, both opening to the custom made pool and lanai area and each on opposite sides of the house. This makes our home perfect for 2 couples or extended family and nobody gets the lesser room. Then because we have Jason we built a custom made kids/teens room, with very colorful beds, and each bed has it own personal TV and DVD player with game console and personal head phones. Our pool and garden area are professionally maintained by a landscaping architect not just a lawn cutting company. He insures our place always looks beautiful, that the fruit trees (many) are properly trimmed and that there is never a blade of grass out of place. We are just 3 miles to 5th avenue south and less than 4 miles to the beach. We knew we needed to be close to the sea because I love boating and it was only a matter of time before we purchased a great boat in Naples. We did and we purchased a Marina slip right on 5th avenue in Naples Bay next to Tin City only 3 miles away. We have a great property manager (and good friend) who looks after our guests. We all want to make sure our guests have the “best holiday ever” and we take great pride in how well we take care of them. Dari is always available to help setup a golf excursion, a trip to the Everglades, or simply to deal with any property related issues. We rent our home exactly as we like it for ourselves. We have 1,000 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets, fine crystal, and all the comforts of home including an extremely well equipped kitchen.Being originally from Europe our home has a European flare such as for example a bidet in the master bathroom. We have everything such as golf clubs (his and her) tennis equipment, beach gear, high chairs for kids, and strollers for little ones (my sisters have 6 little ones), and a lot more. Our home is wonderful. Cheers.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
This was a great setup for our family vacation. Plenty of space, updated kitchen and plenty of cooking supplies, and a wonderful covered Lanai with pool and spa that walks directly out from the two master suites. Very close to the beach and shopping area.
Thank you, Laurie, for taking the time to do this review.
It’s an important part of home renting because other families need good information on great homes they can then find.
You guys were wonderful and thank you for taking such great care of our home.
Now that you have been officially invited into our “family Of Returning Guests TM”, we will always make sure to do something a little extra for you and your family when you visit any of our 3 homes, (Europe, NY, or here in Naples Florida).
Of course, you will also always get at least a 10% discount on renting any of our homes as a member of the club.
You are very glad you had such a wonderful vacation at our home and we promise the next time it will again be the Best Holiday Ever!
Absolutely wonderful inside and out !!!
We just got back from staying at this lovely home. The ultra private saltwater pool and spa were amazing and the reserve behind it make it seem like you are miles away in your own private paradise . We spent the majority of our time outdoors but the kitchen and media room are outstanding and our 9 year old
daughter absolutely loved the bunk beds :) Paul was super nice and responsive . We hope to be back soon . The location is also wonderful close to everything . You can’t go wrong renting this property !

Luxurious home in Naples
Just got back from a wonderful family vacation in Naples staying at this home. We had a great time!! The house is beautiful and has everything you could ever need. We all loved the private pool and beautiful lush gardens. We also greatly enjoyed watching movies in the evenings in the media room. The owner, Paul, is incredibly nice and responsive to any questions or concerns you may possibly have. He gave us great tips on places to visit and restaurants to try in the area. Will definitely be visiting again in the future!!
Thank you so much for this review, believe me we really appreciate it.
Now as a member of our family you can enjoy any of our 3 homes (Europe, Florida, NY), with a big discount and special perks.
You guys were so nice Dagmar and I already have something wonderful planned for you the next time you stay with us.
Have a wonderful summer and remember we are always here for you and will make any accommodation we can at any of our homes if you just need to get away a few days. We sometimes have little open gaps that we make available to our special families like yours for free, so keep an eye on our calendar and if you see anything for less than 4 days that you think you might be able to jump into let us know, and you can have it with our compliments and thanks, the only cost would be the cleaning crew.
Paul and Dagmar
Superb! Very tastefully designed, as well as cozy! Excellent location and friendly neighborhood.
The property is truly a loving and lovely home. So well taken care of and comfy living with a beautifully maintained living space, pool and spa. The owners are wonderful to work with, very informative and available when needed. We brought our bikes and enjoyed cycling the friendly neighborhood and easily accessible walking/bike trail. We, the two of us, would love to return but next time with our grown children and grandchildren, as the home is so spacious and welcoming! We had a marvelous time and even requested to extend our stay and didn't want to leave; it truly felt like our home away from home!
Thank you so much for your kind words about our home. We try very hard to make sure our travelers enjoy the Best Holiday Ever ™ at each of our 3 lovely personal family homes.
Dagmar and I are so glad you guys had such a wonderful holiday and as you know, now that you have been invited into our Family of Returning Guests™, you will always get big discounts and special perks at any of our homes.
You guys were awesome and took such good care of our place. I posted a great review of you so that other hosts know that you guys are amazing.
Come back and holiday with us again soon, it will be even better the next time I guarantee it.
The house and property were amazing! Our family enjoyed it very much and our vacation was great! Had every ammentiy you could think of. Pool and hot tub, beach toys, chairs,umbrellas, movies and games. In a very quiet neighborhood. Not far from beach and attractions.Would definitely bring my family back!
Thank you Steve.
Keep our information and come back to us sometime. We are mo longer going to advertise our home so if you don't keep the information you will never find us again. Have a wonderful time wherever you go next.
This home was as advertised, both inside and out. Lovely, clean, private and a wonderful pool.
This was our 1st VRBO adventure so we did not know what to expect, but things went off without a hitch. We had LOTS of questions and the owner understood that and was very patient in answering them. We flew into the Ft. Myers airport and it was a simple 35 min car ride to the house. The home was as listed; very nicely decorated with a large open kitchen that made it easy to move around and plenty of counter space to prepare virtually any style food. Any type of utensil you could think of was there with a gigantic selection of spices. Lots of lovely art pieces, so please keep that in mind if you plan on bringing small kids. We stayed in the 2nd master suite as my wife enjoyed the direct view of the pool area. Best part of the day was enjoying coffee each morning with the pool, palm trees, and various birds that visited the nearby trees daily. This house is in the back of a neighborhood and it takes about 15-20 minutes to get to the beach, but the private backyard pool/spa area made it very worthwhile and we were glad we were at this house rather than a crowded condo near the beach. There is a grocery store about 5 min away and Walmart & Bealls, just a little farther. Loved the saltwater pool and spa. We will definitely stay there again if choose a Naples destination.
Thank you so much Norm for taking the time to post this review. We are very glad you guys enjoyed our home. As members of our family of returning guests TM you will always get special perks at any of our homes and of course always a big discount of at least 10%.
Have a wonderful summer
Near Old Naples down town 5th avenue. And very close to the beach also. Both just about 3 miles away. This home in a private community is located in the 'real' Naples not miles up north or inland with the high humidity and the mosquitos. It is our personal vacation home.
