If you need a member of our staff to do this for you, there will be a $75 service charge. If you are staying in a condominium, generally the Association will provide gas for the community BBQ.

**The property is missing screen panels on the pool cage and has some damage to the screen cage door due to Hurricane Irma. All is well with the home and pool, but this is still scheduled to be repaired at a later date

We really are here to cater to the guests and offering the best services.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our family of 11 with a baby stayed at the Knickerbocker. I had requested a high chair, baby bed and stroller. All of the items were waiting on us. We hired a cleaning person thru the Vacation Homes and they did an awesome job for us while we were at the house. The house itself, very quiet, great pool with cool refreshing water, the beds were very comfortable, an awesome kitchen which is where most families congregate, lots of room you never felt on top of each other, I would stay there again. THis house helped make our family vacation for my parents 50th a great one!!!! ps---the people at Naples Florida Vacation Homes were very easy to deal with.

Whoaaaaaa.....Super Home Indeed

  • 5 of 5

The house is HUGE. And clean, and comfortable, and super private. We had 18 guests and it felt huge still. We found a new light switch every day it was that big. Loved it. Cannot beat the value

The venue was perfect. The staff however was inexperienced and the Groomsman had to take charge.

  • 3 of 5

The venue is beautiful and was perfect for the occasion. Despite the terrible weather the wedding was beautiful and turned everything turned out wonderfully. The Father of the Bride, Groomsman, Caterer and Photographer took charge in order change the set-up due to the weather. The Bride and Groom had a walk through with Annabelle (a sweetheart of a young woman) prior to the wedding. She is very sweet, and tried her best and I can't express enough that our fault is not with her. This was her first event at the property and she was entirely to inexperienced to be left in charge of such an important event. I don't know the name of the lady who assisted her, but I was told that she was the manager of the property company. She is definitely not a people person. She was rude, standoffish and not helpful at all. Her attitude created a great amount of stress to all who were trying to change the set-up due to the weather. For future events, we believe that some type of arrangements should be made for trash removal. We were told that there were 2 very large bins we could use for trash disposal, which at the end of the wedding we found our was not the case. In the pouring rain we had to remove all of the trash from the venue. It was pouring down rain and with an event that included food for 125 people for a 5 hour event...well, it was very messy, inconvenient and quite a challenge that we were totally not prepared for. Additionally, we had a total of three turnovers for people assisting us. Deb Munger, who initially was assisting us, assured us of many things (in writing via email), that would not be honored. I feel that if Vincent (our 2nd contact) would have remained at the venue during the wedding, he would have taken charge and handled every situation. He seemed accommodating, was pleasant, could take charge and seemed as though he was experienced. Since the wedding did turn out wonderfully, we left satisfied, but feel that the management company should be more forthright about garbage removal and ensure that they have experienced help on sight for events of this importance.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. For people reading the reviews, the Knickerbocker is an overnight vacation rental. We also do events at the Knickerbocker. We take all feedback and do try to work on making an even better experience for all our guests. The wedding turned out great. We did want to comment on a few things. We don't believe there was a back up plan in case it rained. We had a number of staff plan to come back out a few hours before guests arrived to put tables out, but when they got there, the family was already setting up. I think they got a bit worried about everything, wedding day jitters, and ended up setting up without us for the most part. The trash issue is something that they agreed to prior to renting out the place, and I don't think the rain helped with that, but unfortunately, those are the rules. Once again, it was a good learning moment for us, as now we see issues that could arise in a rain situation, and we will look to improve.

Overall Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Were visiting for family reunion, 15 of us in all. House was exactly what we needed. Lot's of sleeping arrangements, great pool, very clean house. We enjoyed the location and being a bit isolated, but still 15 minutes from the beach. We will be back again next year for sure.

I wanted to express my thanks and gratitude to your team for everything you did to ensuring the success of our Rabbinic Retreat at the Knickerbocker last week. You made your readily available (I very much appreciated that you gave me your cell phone number) and provided superb customer service. The venue was a great fit for our needs and our group was very pleased. Thanks again for all your help and we look forward to hopefully working together with you in the future.
