About the property

2 Bedrooms + Den w/Queen Murphy Bed, 2 Full Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Casa Del Sol Naples is a dreamy waterfront vacation home in a tropical paradise setting. Located in Naples' Gulf Harbor neighborhood which is often referred to as the 'Key West' of the gulf coast because of the friendly laid back, old Florida vibe and the many waterfront stilt homes. Just a 5 minute drive (or 15-20 minute bike ride) to both Delnor Wiggins Pass State Park beach and Vanderbilt Beach, or about 10 minutes to the world famous Barefoot Beach. The Forbes 2015 Best Beaches in America list included Delnor Wiggins Beach and Barefoot Beach in the Top Ten too!

It is the perfect Naples vacation spot! The house is located on lovely canal offering amazing fishing everyday in your own backyard. Only 30 minutes from the international airport so you can get your vacation started right away.

Extremely quiet location with absolutely no traffic noise, yet convenient to so many places. Restaurants and shopping are within minutes including the Mercato & Waterside shops, or if you want to go downtown to Olde Naples' 5th Ave. or 3rd St., it's just a 15 minute straight shot down 41.

Our sunny vacation home features all new unique & stylish furnishings throughout and a comfortable, modern open concept living area. Tropical views from every window and door. With western and southern exposures, it's wonderfully bright all day long and allows you to enjoy Naples' incredible sunsets each evening.

Brand new modern kitchen featuring european cabinetry and all the necessities. Comfortable breakfast nook with a dining table for 4 (2 extra chairs available too).

The master suite features a queen size bed, 32' flat screen hdtv, walk in closet, and a double sink bathroom with a luxurious shower with body sprays. The guest bedroom has a queen size bed and closet. Second bathroom with great shower just steps down the hall. There are no bathtubs. The fully enclosed den/3rd bedroom off the living room has a custom made queen size murphy bed and a small closet.

Outside you'll find a side deck with an outdoor dining set, a gas grill and a private & serene fenced yard with massive bamboo trees and other tropical and flowering plantings. Side deck connects to the large back deck with sun loungers and a private dock for your fishing or boating or just relaxing enjoyment.

Guests may use our bicycles to explore endless paved trails to the marina, beaches and parks. Or, if you're the adventurous type, use our canoe to explore the mangrove surrounded backwaters which offer excellent fishing and bird watching opportunities, pay close attention and you may spot a manatee or dolphins!

About Christine P.

Friends from Chicago who really needed a tropical escape from the big city, especially in the winter time! We absolutely love Naples, have family here so have been visiting for years. Finally owning a home here is a real dream come true.

Christine P. purchased this house in 2011

Why Christine P. chose North Naples

We love to fish so being on the water with access to both the backwaters and the Gulf was a must. Our neighborhood is beautiful, safe and friendly, and so very close to the beaches as well as to shopping, dining and nightlife, we think its the perfect spot in Naples.

What makes this house unique

Biking to the beach every morning to grab a cup of coffee and walk along the surf watching for dolphins and the elusive sand dollar. Fishing! Golf - so many courses nearby! Eating fresh fish at nearby excellent restaurants, marvelling at the gorgeous tropical fauna & flora all around.

Wonderful Respite from the Cold

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! We fished off the dock, biked, and the kids kayaked the canal. Everything we could have ever needed was provided. We were just a short distance from beaches, the zoo and the botanical gardens to name a few. We also liked that it was close to the airport. Clean, conveniently located and well equipped sums it up. Christine was very accommodating and easy to work with.

Spring Break family trip

  • 5 of 5

This house exceeded all expectations! The trundle bed/office worked great as 3rd bedroom so my boys could sleep separately. Every room was super clean and had all amenities you could want. We loved using the canal to fish, canoe and kayak. We also used the great bikes around the quiet and safe neighborhood. Location was perfect to get to beaches, restaurants, shopping in both Bonita Springs and Naples. Christina was great to work with -- super responsive and we even had a welcome beverage! Would rent here again in a heartbeat.

Snowbirds in need of warm weather

  • 5 of 5

We were 3 senior women from Canada looking for a warm spot for a month. This was a ideal accommodation as we each had our own space. We always felt safe although not in a gated community. We were close (10 min) to the beach and we could walk to the corner mall where there was restaurants, shopping etc. We did have a rental car to travel about between Naples and Bonita Springs which had much to offer. Everything we needed was there; beach equipment, bedding, laundry facilities, wifi, appliances and two bathrooms was a must need for 3 women. Thank you Christine and Rob. Myra L. for Mary and Alice

For beach vacationers in need of R&R

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house! Well furnished, spacious, and comfortable. Main bedrooms include spacious queen beds and the bathrooms have nice showers; bathrooms seem recently re-done. We had some last minute guests join us for the holiday and the den with Murphy bed was perfect for them - a very comfortable bed. The kitchen is beautiful and well stocked. And access to a washer/dryer was a bonus. The highlight for us was the back patio overlooking the canal. We had a daily visitor - a great Egret - join us for coffee in the morning and lunch midday. We greatly appreciated the beach chairs, umbrellas, and bikes in the garage. We went to a different beach each day, since the house is nearby many options, and were glad that Royal Scoop (ice cream shop) was around the corner. Christine and Bob were very responsive, informative, and helpful in preparing for our trip. We would recommend this house to vacationers looking for R&R, a comfortable and spacious place, and lots of sunshine!

Naples hideaway

  • 5 of 5

Naples in a quiet peaceful home tucked away but yet close to beaches and everything else to make your stay pleasant. Home is well maintained and had everything needed for a great stay. The owners asked us for any recommendations and we had none! It's perfect! Can't wait to return!

Amazing fishing right off your own dock and through the incredible mangrove lined backwater canals and bays, only 10 minutes by powerboat or 30 minutes paddling to the Gulf. Nature lovers will be thrilled with the lush surroundings, bald eagles nesting in the pines, constant tropical bird sightings - especially grand egrets. Two of the highest rated beaches in the country (Forbes 2015 Best Beaches: Barefoot Beach 2nd best and Delnor-Wiggins 9th best) are within 5-15 minutes drive from the house. Don't miss our famous sunsets into the Gulf, especially romantic from the beach. For great shopping, dining & nightlife, the new Mercato and very upscale Waterside shops are just a few miles away and Downtown Naples ('Olde Naples') is only about 10 miles away. The airport (Southwest Florida International - RSW Fort Myers) is only 30 minutes away. Fort Myers Beach is 25 minutes, Marco, Sanibel & Captiva islands 45 minutes. Fort Lauderdale 1.5 hours, Miami 2 hours. Explore the Florida Everglades - take an airboat ride or visit the wildlife sanctuaries, etc. etc. Naples and the surrounding area has so much to offer!
