Glennette purchased this Cottage in 2001
Why Glennette chose Old Naples
My parents were one of the first condo owners on Marco Island. We had a property there for 20 years. My daughter as she grew would often comment that we always ended up driving to Naples to do things. We bought this home because is has an amazing location. Being a real estate broker I know the old saying is too true. Location, Location, Location. I've put a lot of my own energy into remodeling this home. It may not look like much from the front, but it definitely has it where it counts. This property has become my sanctuary away from work and business. Unfortunately we don't get down to Naples as often as we should, when we do this home is perfect. The third street shopping and restaurant area has continued to improve. Most of the parades start from here and in the winter they have snow makers and plenty of activity for families.
What makes this Cottage unique
The house is simple and comfortable. The location is to die for. Over the years with the remodeling and upgrades we have done, we've learned to love and appreciate this home. There isn't much like it in Naples and if you want to truly enjoy all that Naples has to offer this home and location definitely beat the more touristy areas.

We really enjoyed the comfort and convenience of this home! It was clean, comfortable and well laid out for the five of us.
Living on Third Street
Great, great location!
House and pool have not been updated but are in reasonable condition.
Very convenient to Third Street restaurants and stores
An old home with minimal street appeal but quite comfortable inside. It was well equipped and the owners were very responsive to our needs. The location is superb--a 200 yard walk to the beach and 50 yards to 3rd St., a marvelous collection of fine shops and dining. A fine way to enjoy old Naples!
Thank you for the kind review. You have really described the location perfectly. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay.
Close to perfect
The house was perfect for six people. Two blocks from the beach. We ate in all but one night because eating in is almost always better than eating out. The pool was clean, plenty of towels, etc. A most enjoyable stay.
Not a better location in Naples to stay. We stayed here for a long 4th of July Weekend. Great location parked at the house and walked everywhere including beaches and restaurants and shops. Farmers Market two blocks away on Saturdays. Do not let the exterior picture fool you; the interior is updated modern and extremely comfortable. We slept on the recliner sofa because it was so comfortable we would fall asleep. Pool is serviced and great. Good for our pet with fenced in back yard as well as screened lanai. Will come back again.
This comfortable house - a short two block walk from the beach - has been our family's preferred vacation home in an area we have visited for nearly 20 years. The home is located in the heart of Olde Naples adjacent to the third street historic district and only footsteps from cafes, restaurants and shops. The weekly farmers market on Saturdays is less then 100 yards away. Fifth Avenue South is only 1 mile away. Cambier park is also withing walking distance. A pet friendly dog walking park behind fifth avenue shopping that includes: Five Lighted Shuffleboard Courts, Two Boccee Courts, Arthur L. Allen Tennis Center, Bandshell, Unique Children's Playground, Softball Field, Covered Pavillion, Lots of Open Green Space to Enjoy a Picnic.
Once you arrive at the house, you won't need to drive anywhere. There is plenty of entertainment and eating withing walking distance.
The Naples Pier is less then 1/2 mile away and fishing from the pier without a license is legal.
