About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, 8 Sleeps

Our fabulous, newer, mini-mansion is situated downtown amongst multi-million dollar homes, only a short walk to beautiful Naples Beach. The location could not be better. Your time on vacation is valuable, don't waste it in traffic or traveling to the beach, Fifth Ave, the Zoo, shopping, golf, or tennis, all less than two miles way! The home extends to over 4,000 square feet, including 3002 square feet of air-conditioned luxury, 4 bedrooms in total and can sleep up to 8 people. A beautiful home-away-from-home with your own private, tropical pool and spa paradise in the back garden! Situated in a quiet and safe neighborhood, the house is conveniently located within moments of of all of Naples.

The almost half the rear garden is an enclosed (full screened) lanai and is a tropical oasis containing the large, 28 feet by 15 feet pool and six-seat spa with privacy provided by a

wide variety of palms, ferns, and fruit trees. For more delicate complexions, there is a portico providing shade which boasts fans, dimmable lights (for those intimate al'fresco meals), comfortable seating and a large gas barbecue.

The home is newly furnished and professionally decorated to a very high standard including bamboo and Brazilian marble flooring. The kitchen has all the tools/toys to prepare anything from a quick snack to a Christmas dinner with all the trimmings! Eat on the lani, at the morning room, which looks out onto the pool or the more formal Dinning Room.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our 4th year staying in this unit, we started out staying 3 days and have finally made it to staying a full week! Our little group looks forward to our vacation for an entire year, as this is our favorite place to go. We come for a yearly convention which is always the last weekend of our stay. This year we actually had time to unwind and do things at a leisurely pace and visited several of the attractions, Everglades National Park, and Thomas Edison house and laboratory. We have several little places we also love revisiting to eat such as Tommy Bahama's and the Cafe Luna , however with the fully stocked kitchen I made most meals at the house. This home is certainly nicer than my own home and it has actually become to feel like our home away from home. Joe is always very helpful and able to answer any questions we have about what to do or where to visit, We love our little get away so much that we have already booked for 2015. Thank you so very much Joe !

Great house, wonderful location.

  • 4 of 5

This was our third time staying at Henry House. We are a family of 7 and it has just the right amount of bedrooms and bathrooms and Henry House’s proximity to the gulf shore beach can’t be beat at just 6 blocks away. It’s also very close to downtown as well as the 3rd Ave shops and restaurants. We always cook Thanksgiving dinner during our stay and the kitchen is well stocked with the pots and pans and dishware we need to prepare enough food for ourselves as well as our invited guests for the meal. The weather has always been so perfect for us to eat and visit on the lanai. The pool and hot tub are often used during our stay although the water hasn’t been as warm as it should be.

We love visiting Naples and staying at Henry House. If there is one complaint it would be that the house is not very clean. Joe, I think your house cleaners are doing you a disservice. The house looks “surface clean” but there is a lot of grime and thick dust that becomes very apparent during our stay. The house needs a heavy duty overall cleaning, including the furniture where there is thick dust on the bed rails, etc.

Spacious, well-appointed home with pool, just minutes to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 had a wonderful stay here last week. Plenty of room to host cookouts and to have an overnight grandparent's visit. The kids swam in the pool everyday. The house is in great shape, close to the ocean and Olde Naples. It was a quiet area even given the proximity to the Naples hospital. We definitely would recommend it to friends. Thank you!

You are no min mansion...

  • 2 of 5

It is difficult to know where to begin. First, I had to book it twice because if the owner doesn't respond within 24 hours you lose your booking. I was not notified that he had not responded. So, for a week or more had no idea it was not booked. This is, after it went through on my credit card. It was taken off and I had to repay it but noone told me, I had to call after looking at the dates again and realized our dates were not taken.

When we arrived we were a bit surprised about the description of a mini-mansion. It was, for the most part, clean. The kitchen, refrigrator, and pantry, however, were not. There was food left in the refrigerator, gross things left open in pantry, there was not one good dish cloth or towel. And the bath towels are the cheapest we had ever experience, even if it was an inexpensive hotel. There were two broken coffee pots and one we finally found that worked that we had to scrub clean.

There had been a bad review before we arrived and I called Joe to be sure all was fixed; wifi, heated pool, and hot tub. He assurred me everything was in fine working order. Well guess what? None of these worked. And, two sliding glass doors were broken and maintenance did come to repair. Honestly, that should not be our job on vacation.

It took several phone calls (more like a job than a vacation with girlfriends) to have the pool fixed, hot tub, etc. Joe promised to return several calls in an hour, I always had to call back and follow up. Finally we said we felt we were owed something just for the fact of what time this took away from our girl's week. Never once did he address this issue of any compensation. I explained to Joe about marketing this as a mini mansion when it was far from the truth. I tried to make him understand we don't want to complain but he was the one who told us all was working and it was NOT. Just not a good experience. There is even more, but what is the point really.

I am frustrated as I write this to think of the time it took to get things just okay. We would never, ever rent this property.

Nice, but need some touch ups.

  • 3 of 5

We had a good time. The location is great, walking distance from the beach, neighborhood was peaceful. The property was comfortable for us, very especious. We had a few bumps during our stay, wiifii was not working, pool heater was not working either so water in the pool was very cold and uncomfortable to be in, the a/c in the master room was not working making the room hot, the ceiling fan saved us but is not the same.

Great Getaway Spot

  • 5 of 5

Our family was fortunate to enjoy this beautiful home for a long weekend trip. The house was immaculate, with a very well-appointed kitchen and a great covered outdoor patio and pool. It is located in a very good location, close to the beach, fifth ave, and shopping. We especially enjoyed being able to bike or walk to the beach. This home is perfect for a large family vacation or just a couple looking for a fun weekend.

Wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely home in May. It was vey clean and comfortable throughout. We loved the large open plan kitchen, pool and spa area and the great new outdoor grill. A quiet and private location which was very easy to relax in and is within walking distance of the beach.

We had a wonderful stay, and have recommended it to our friends and family.
