Overview

Naples House Rental Photos and Description

Stunning 3 Bedroom, 3 Bath, Heated Pool, Short Bike Ride To The Beach.

The first thing you will do when you open the front door is smile. This is a happy place! We finished a complete remodel in August of 2013 and continue to make sure the house is in "like new" condition. With the exception of a few cool vintage pieces, everything in the house in new! Most of the art is original and a good number of the pieces are vintage as well.

The place has a nice vibe. Cool, but not so cool you don't want to sit on anything. Serene and lively at the same time, depending on where you're looking.

Kitchen is equipped with top of the line Bosch appliances, including an induction cooktop. You'll find everything you need whether you're a professional chef or just use the kitchen to microwave your cold Starbucks. Blender, mixer, griddle, waffle iron, coffee maker, bar tools, etc. All store away neatly. Full set of All-Clad cookware especially for induction cooking.

The back of the house opens up to the lanai and pool with 3 sliders that store completely away in the walls. Pool is heated and the area is equipped with 4 comfortable lounge chairs as well as 2 chaises. Beyond the pool cage is a spacious tropical oasis with two more chaises. The entire back of house is enclosed in tropical greenery and completely private.

Family room area is furnished with two exceedingly comfortable Eilersen sofas with movable backrests that allow you to configure to suit, or remove completely. Wonderful, cozy area to watch movies on the 55" LED 3D TV or stream your favorite content with the Apple TV.

Master bedroom and bath is a serene retreat. Furnished with a Beauty Rest Black Label king sized mattress, luxury high thread-count Egyptian cotton sheets and luxury European white goose down pillows. The bath includes double sinks with lighted medicine cabinets, a luxurious soaking tub, glass enclosed shower with dual shower heads, seated vanity with lighted makeup mirror and custom walk-in closet.

First guest room is furnished with a queen sized top-of-the-line Beauty Rest mattress, high thread count Egyptian cotton linens and luxury European goose down pillows. This room is equipped with an extremely large custom closet and a 40" Samsung LED TV.

Second guest room is furnished with two top-of-the-line Serta twin beds (suitable for adults as well as children), luxury sateen bed linens and synthetic down pillows. This room also has a large custom closet and 40" Samsung LED TV.

First guest bath can be entered from either guest bedroom. This bath is equipped with a large glass shower with dual shower heads and a large vanity with lighted vanity mirror and lighted makeup mirror.

Second guest bath is directly across the hall from either bedroom. It is also directly accessible from the pool area. This bath is equipped with a large glass shower with dual shower heads and a large vanity.

New Whirlpool front load washer and dryer are located in the garage where you will also find 6 Tommy Bahama beach chairs and 2 beach umbrellas, a Crate & Barrel fold-up beach table, 2 wheeled coolers and 4 bicycles for your use.

There is a large Weber gas grill at the rear of the house.

About Gloria

We are from Indianapolis, IN. Jeff is a nationally recognized artist specializing in public installations. I have owned a small business in the Indianapolis area for the last 23 years.

Gloria purchased this house in 2013

Why Gloria chose Naples

We rented a property in Olde Naples for a couple winters, so we knew we loved the Naples area. We fell in love with the open layout of this house (after a couple walls came down) and the way the entire backside of the house could be opened up to the outdoors. We later realized the neighborhood is ideally situated right in the middle of all Naples has to offer.

It was also important to us to buy an older home. This one was built in 1974. So many of the nice older homes in Naples are being torn down to make way for McMansions. It's very satisfying to bring an older home back.

What makes this house unique

The private Park Shore Owner's Park and Beach is unique in Naples. In season, parking can be a real problem at the public areas and there are very limited restroom facilities. Having this available is a tremendous benefit. Huge parking lot, spotless restroom facilities and a shower area as well, all just a few minutes from the house. We ride our bikes over for the sunset almost every night when we're in town.

We love this house!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd time/year (in a row...) renting this property and, once again, we were completely blown away by the quality of everything. This place never disappoints and I don't think I could get my family to stay anywhere else in Naples.

BEST VACATION EVER!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My new husband and I rented the place for 1 week for our honeymoon. We expected a nice time based upon all the reviews we read... However... nothing could prepare us for the relaxing paradise we were greeted with!! This home is passionately decorated to give you the ultimate feeling of comfort and relaxation. There is not a single need or want left unmet. EVERYTHING you could possibly think of needing in a vacation home is at this pad! The pool..... HOLY COW!!!! Talk about relaxing! I myself fell asleep on a raft for almost 2 hours my first day there!!! One would think that summer in Naples is sweltering... but the lanai fan makes the lounging area at the pool so pleasant!! Most all of our evening were spent just sitting out there and enjoying the impeccably lit landscape. Trust me when I say, you will tear up too when you have to leave this place.

Gloria made us feel so welcomed by putting together the perfect Honeymoon Welcome Kit in our fridge.. Equipped with Wedding Champagne, cheese, crackers, and a delicious fig spread.. The key lime cookies paired perfectly with our Coronas! Basically.. you would be crazy to not rent this place.. and possibly desiring to offer them millions to buy it.. because these people KNOW how to make a vacation home!!!!! Gloria and Jeff are just a few swipes of your fingers away if you need ANYTHING. Plus they know ALL the best places to eat, when to go there, and what to order.

These two are obviously passionate about their hospitality!

We will definitely be coming back sooner rather than later.

ENJOY HEAVEN!

Wonderful property in Park Shore, Naples!

  • 5 of 5

In a nutshell, we would unreservedly recommend this property - it is spacious, well located and beautifully appointed. Gloria took care to ensure every detail was covered off to make our vacation perfect, from restaurant recommendations to great quality beach gear.

We were a party of six: mum and dad, grandparents and two boys under 5 visiting Gloria's property for two weeks in May 2016.

We loved the open plan layout, bright airy feel and the quality of the decoration, appliances etc - we immediately felt at home. Every little detail was taken care of to ensure guests want for nothing. The pool was a good size and lanai was perfect for chilling out in the evening (especially as young kids meant we spent many evenings in). The wifi, TVs and other technology all worked well (the choice of TV channels was great and parallel to what we get at home, unlike many vacation rentals). It was wonderful to have the passes to the private beach, where we went every single day!

This was our 4th year in a row of vacationing in Naples in the Park Shore neighbourhood, and overall we've been fans of Naples for over 20 years. It was our favourite rental property by far!

Summary: we can't wait to return, thank you Gloria!

April at Artist's Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Artist's Retreat in Naples was a fabulous place to enjoy the month of April. The house is bright, modern and colourful well situated and such a happy place to stay. The house is very well equipped in every way....kitchen, linens, beach equipment and bikes.

The owner is very helpful and so organized and thorough which makes for a very smooth arrival and exit. We will return to this little piece of paradise very soon.

Stylish Oasis in Parkshore

  • 5 of 5

It was our second year staying at this beautiful property, this time for the whole month of March. Just like last year, it was spotlessly clean, comfortable, and luxuriously outfitted. The layout of the house, the backyard pool and the perfect location close to the beach worked very well for the 2 of us, as well as our visiting children & granddaughter. Gloria was extremely helpful with recommendations and responsive to any of our inquiries. We are already looking forward to coming back next year!

Clean , with all the amenities you could dream of.

  • 4 of 5

The house was in a lovely quiet part of Naples near to the beach and near to all the fair at 5th and 3rd St . Very clean and packed with all the amenities you could need to make a perfect vacation! The beach pass gives you access to a wonderful beach within 3 minutes drive of the house . Had a very lovely time staying here and would look forward to coming back !!!! Thanks Gloria and Jeff

Park Shore Owner's Private Park & Beach
Car: recommended

Access to the Park Shore Owners private park and beach - This is a bigger deal than one would think. Because...You'll always have a parking spot and you'll have a shower and restroom to use only available to pass holders.

Park Shore beach walk - Wonderful walkway along the beach running the length of the neighborhood. Great for a run or stroll.

Venetian Village - Walk or ride your bike here. It's that close! This may or may not be a good thing as there are so many wonderful shops and restaurants.

Go to M Grille for lunch and have the bento box.

Waterside Shops - Very chic, high-end mall anchored by Nordstrom and Saks. Several good places to eat there like Brio and California Pizza Kitchen. 1.8 miles from the house.

The Mercato - Another great shopping/dining/entertainment area. Whole foods is here as well as the nicest movie theatre you've ever been to, Silverspot. If you're dubious about your movie selection, have them serve you a glass of wine. It'll make the movie better. 4.8 miles from the house.

Olde Naples - 5th Avenue South and 3rd Street South - This is what a lot of people come to Naples for. The most vibrant area. Lots of shopping and eating to be done. Hit Café Lurcat before 6:00 and you'll enjoy the early bird special and drink special. Cinnamon-sugar donuts for dessert that literally melt in your mouth. 3.9 miles from the house.

Wynn's Market - Awesome family owned market (can you believe they still exist?!) tons of specialty food, great wine selection, extensive deli and premade meals. I love everything about this place other than the cashiers. They're slightly shy of social. I'm on a campaign to kill them with kindness. Help me out. 3.3 miles from the house.

Briggs Wellness Center - This is a really, really nice gym. Lots of group classes and you never have to wait in line for a machine. If you're a swimmer, they have a lovely outdoor lap pool. If you need a personal trainer while in Naples I can hook you up with Allyson, who is most likely the best personal trainer in the western hemisphere. 3.2 miles from the house.

Fresh Market - This is the closest grocery shopping to the house and offers a wonderful selection of organic and specialty food. 1.6 miles from the house.
