About Cate and Peter Goodin (Owners)

We live full time here in Naples and are always happy to help you enjoy your holiday!

Cate and Peter Goodin (Owners) purchased this house in 1999

Why Cate and Peter Goodin (Owners) chose Vanderbilt Beach

We custom designed and built this home in 1999. It is an easy walk or bike ride to Vanderbilt beach. There is also a parking garage located at Vanderbilt Beach. Just up the road is wonderful award winning Delnor-Wiggins State Park Beach, a natural preserve beach. We supply 8 beach chairs, beach umbrella, beach toys and information booklets of lots of things to do nearby.

What makes this house unique

Naples has 11 miles of beautiful public beaches, easy to get to from our house. And we are close to wonderful Corkscrew Audubon Sanctuary, the SW Florida Nature Conservancy, TenThousand Island National Park, and area great shopping. Peter is a nature guide and can suggest many trips here for birding and nature lovers. When possible we also offer free boat rides to Keewaddin Island, only reachable by boat, a nature island, the 'real' Florida!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have been coming to your great rental home for 4 years now and can be happier. Your home has everything we need and it is such a good location! Thanks for all the information you provide in the house about all the fun things to do and see. We enjoy how close the beach is and the neighbors are very nice. We will be back next year.

Great home away from home

  • 5 out of 5
Our stay in your home was perfect!! We took a family trip with our parents to enjoy time with them!! Your home had everything needed possible not to mention it was in the perfect spot to have some fun in the sun being just a short hop to the beach. We made great memories while staying and also had the opportuntity to see the shuttle make it's final fly over before landing!! We appreciate you accommodating us on our early arrival, you were very easy to deal with, highly recommend for families and friends

Wonderful, spacious, clean vacation home.

  • 5 out of 5
We had the pleasure of staying here the week before my father was getting married, end of June 2010. The house was awesome. Very clean, spacious, close to the beach, and restaurants/shopping very close by also. Peter and Cate have to be the sweetest couple I've ever met. It was a joy staying here, hopefully we can do it again sometime soon.

A great place to stay!!!

  • 5 out of 5
We recently stayed at this house while in Naples for a wedding. I felt like a lot of thought and consideration went into the decorating and furnishings to make it an enjoyable experience. Everything you could possibly need was provided, even bicycles in the garage for a ride to the beach, It was clean, comfortable and very relaxing. The location was perfect for what we wanted to do. The owners are friendly and easy to deal with. I would strongly recommend this rental to anyone staying in the Naples area.

Conference stay at Sandpiper house

  • 5 out of 5
From May 6-12 I stayed in this property with a few of my colleagues when we attended a conference in Naples. All of us very much enjoyed our stay there and we are thinking coming back in the following year. So we would warmly recommend this house!

Overall, the property was clean and very well maintained. We encountered no problems whatsoever and everything was easy to find. All of the cupboards etc are labelled which makes it easy to find whatever you are looking for. The owners have been very helpful throughout.

The house itself is very pleasant at a very affordable price. It has a spacious living room and dining area which we made great use of for breakfast and relaxing in the evening. The kitchen is well equipped and large enough so that all five of us would never step on each others' toes when preparing meals. There is also a nice outdoors lanai, but we did not actually spend much time there except for hanging up clothes and towels, except for one day when we took our lunch there. In fact, perhaps the one thing which would make this property completely perfect in my eyes is to have not a roofed lanai but rather an open patio (under a mosquito net) as I would be more likely to be using the outdoors that way. But this is only a minor point.

The location is excellent, within walking distance of Vanderbilt Beach. The house comes with two bikes which we used regularly to cycle to the beach. It's also very close to restaurants and shops, in fact just up the road is the Wholefoods groceries market. The neighbourhood was quiet and pleasant, and it is a short drive to Old Naples or Bonita Springs. We particularly enjoyed Barefoot Beach and Lovers Key just to the north.

Great Find in North Naples

  • 5 out of 5
This beautifully appointed and very well equipped house is within easy walking distance of the Mercato, a hot new shopping, living & entertainment area that features Whole Foods, Sur la Table, luxurious movie theaters, several restaurants and the cool night spot, the Blue Martini. You can take a shortcut by foot (off 91st AVE) to The Pavillion, a shopping center on Vanderbilt Beach Road that features a Publix grocery store, the US Postal Service, a packaging store, a barber, hairdressers and lots of ethnic restaurants. The Ritz Carlton is close by for cocktails and a gift shop that sells a selection of Florida's best-kept secret: Norman Love Confections; i.e., beautifully crafted chocolate to die for. (Visit his retail store just south of Ft. Meyers, near the airport.) For fine dining right on the beach, I recommend the Turtle Club Restaurant on Gulf Shore Drive . (The club is private; the restaurant is open to the public.) For casual dining and great seafood, try Randy's Fish Market Restaurant north on Tamiami Trail (US 41), a few blocks north of the house (be prepared to wait). If you're up for a longer drive, try Food and Thought Organic Market and restaurant south on 41 in Naples; all food is organic and they always serve a variety of delicious gluten-free dishes on the menu. Birding is available everywhere, but do make the trip to Corkscrew Swamp, a sanctuary for birds and wildlife; bring your camera and binoculars or rent the latter for a small fee (having a membership in The Audubon Society will get you a discount on the entry fee; leave yourself lots of time for this adventure). The neighborhood, as realtors point out, is in transition and promises to be the place to be in the near future. It is very quiet, within a (long) walk to Vanderbilt Beach but within easy driving or bicycling distance to one of SW Florida's best state parks, Delnor Wiggins. One terrific feature of this vacation property, besides the location and wireless, is that there are no additional fees once the rent is paid. A wide variety of spices and condiments are provided as is a terrific selection of cookware. The owners are very well organized and have thought of everything; the kitchen drawers are even labeled, making it easy to find stuff. The owners were great. I'd recommend this property to anyone. One traffic caution: Tamiami Trail (US 41) has lots of traffic, especially in high season. I missed having a pool but the lanai is private.

a wonderful vacation home!

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I have stayed in several of Peter and Cate's vacation rentals and will continue to do so whenever we get the chance to visit because they are all so nicely equiped. You can see that they care very much about offering a comfortable and relaxing vacation in the little details. Most vacation rentals have basic cooking equipment, but these houses are as well turned out as my own kitchen. We were easily able to cook and entertain for a crowd. And the other little amenities, such as good towels, beach equipment is new condition, pretty decorations, and truely comfortable and abundant bedding makes this our favorite and most comfortable spot to vacation. If you're looking for a vacation rental lovingly equiped and maintained, in a great location, at a reasonable price.... this is the best!
