About Mark Hinebaugh
After visiting friends in Naples multiple times I fell in love with the area. The weather is perfect, the white sand beaches are beautiful, great restaurants and shopping, as well as plenty of other activities. I decided that this is where I'd like a vacation home. Living in the northeast the winters can be very long and cold which makes Naples is a nice retreat from all of that. Being less than a mile from the beaches makes it an easy walk or bike ride. Shopping and restaurants are also within walking distance which is nice. We love the proximity to other places in Florida that we visit like Ft. Lauderdale and Miami which are less than 2 hours away. On occasion we take the high speed ferry down to Key West for a day or the weekend. Orlando and Disney are only 3 hours away, and Tampa/St. Pete are about a 2.5 hour drive. We hope that you enjoy our little piece of paradise.

Beach house was plenty big for our grown family of 5. Full kitchen, super comfortable beds and great location. Owner reached out to us when we first got there even though he was out of the country. Would go back if we are in the area again!
Thanks for the kind words. I do my best to check with tenants as soon as they check in. I want to know if they have any questions or concerns that I can help with so they enjoy their stay, and I'm happy that you enjoyed yours. Feel free to contact me in the future if I can be of assistance. Cheers
Thank you for the 5 star rating, glad you enjoyed your stay.
We recently sold our condo in the Pelican Bay Area and were looking for somewhere close by to stay for the week after Christmas. We got lucky when we saw this home for rent after a last minute cancellation. Mark was wonderful to deal with and even left the outside light on for us since we were arriving late! We came into a clean house and a nice welcome basket. Everything we saw in the pictures and in the description was accurate and all the instructions were easy to use. We had a wonderful stay and the home had pretty much anything we needed for our stay. The house is close to the beaches, shopping and restaurants. We would definitely recommend this home for couples or families.
Terri, thank you so much for your kind words. It was our pleasure to have you at our home and hope to see you again in the future. Kindly, Mark

It seemed like a good idea at the time. Beach Bungalow Bliss was a little bigger than we needed since it was only the two of us, but it came with 2 bikes and was only a mile to a beach to the southwest (Vanderbilt) and another one to the northwest (Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park).
Coincidentally, we happened to be spending a weekend about 5 miles away the weekend before this trip. So I contacted the owners to get the address so we could do a “drive by” while we were in the area. To our surprise and good fortune, they were in the area at the time and graciously invited us to stop by for a tour of the place. They gave us a thorough tour of a very nicely decorated 2/2 with a screened in front patio, a large “Florida room” in the back, a garage (with the 2 bikes!), and a *fully* equipped kitchen. The web site pictures don’t do it justice. It is the nicest house on the block.
When we came back a week later to actually use it, everything was in order. We arrived to find a nice “welcome basket”. The appliances are all in fine working order. The bed is comfortable. The kitchen is fun to work in. All the utensils are better than most basic VRBO setups. My wife loved the potato peeler, but alas, we had to leave it behind!
The first few days started as a working vacation. I had to have good internet access for work. The service there worked just fine. The place has easy access to the two beaches, a bike trail, several restaurants, Publix, Walgreen and CVS, Dunkin Donuts, etc. In a 10 minute drive you can find more of all that plus tourist attractions, excellent ice cream (Kilwin’s), shopping (The Village, 5th Ave in Naples), water sports (kayak eco-tours with Finseeker Guided Adventures, Hydrobike).
Several days started with breakfast on the front patio. It was very quiet and surprisingly private. My wife liked early morning bike rides. She would leisurely peddle up and down the streets on the canals across Vanderbilt Drive and admire the mansion homes in the area. Later in the day was too hot for that, but by then it’s nap time anyway!
All of our dealings with the owners were cordial and professional. We have stayed in many VRBO locations in the past but this one in “Best in class”.
So, what seemed like a good idea turned out to be a great idea!
Conrad, thank you for your detailed review. It was a pleasure meeting you both and we're so happy that you enjoyed your stay at Beach Bungalow Bliss.
What a perfect property for a vacation in Naples. This house is ideal for a family or even two couples and a couple of kids. The home is beautifully furnished, very well equipped and is really a home away from home.
We enjoyed the location of this house - you are surrounded by beaches and have some of the best in the area very close by. The National Park, just a few minutes drive from the house is a favorite, with white sand beach and amazing sunset views. You are also almost half way between Old Naples with shopping and restaurants etc and Fort Meyers with miles of beach.
In the evening this house is very comfortable to hang out in, and has a good kitchen area with everything you need. We enjoyed buying locally caught fish to cook, and also venturing out to some of the great local restaurants.
Importantly, the Wifi at the house is good. Sadly most vacation times require a quick check in with work, and this was easy with the wifi provided - also my kids appreciated it!
The other important note is that the house was spotlessly clean! Whoever takes care of this house does an amazing job, which makes arrival and check in great.
Thank you Tim and Mark for sharing your house with us, we had a great time and would love to return one day.
We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay. We have to thank our friends Fred and Joe who do our cleaning and have the house spotless for our guests. We hope to see you again soon.
Fantastic property and host!
My husband, daughter and I stayed at this beautiful bungalow for an intended stay of two weeks at Easter. I have to agree with all the other reviews, a fabulous house in a great location within easy reach of pretty much everywhere. The house is very well equipped, extremely clean, very comfortable beds and great wifi. Our stay had to be extended due a medical problem, and I cannot praise Mark highly enough. Fortunately the house was available for a third week, and we were able to arrange an extended stay without increased worry to an already stressful situation. Thank you to everyone, including the delightful Joe, for a very memorable stay, and we will certainly recommend this house to everyone who needs a wonderful place to stay in Naples.
Thank you for your kind words. It was my pleasure to be of assistance during your stressful time. Best wishes to you and yours and we hope to have you visit again.
