Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Naples Park - Best Value Easy Walk to Beach

A large family home close to beach, restaurants, Ritz-Carlton & Whole Foods!

Naples is all about the beach and we offer the best value within walking distance to Vanderbilt Beach and nearby Delnor Wiggins beach (voted #3 of top 10 beaches by Dr. Beach!). Don't get stuck miles from the beach, stay in our spacious 4 bedroom villa. We have everything you need for a great family vacation. Save money by dining in, the kitchen is well equipped for serving 8 guests and America's best grocery store, Whole Foods, is within 2 blocks. Or walk or bike to any of dozens of restaurants ranging from inexpensive but inventive eateries to haute cuisine at the Ritz-Carlton and Turtle Club overlooking the beach. The floor plan features a master bedroom off it's own hall, with a king bed and ensuite bath. Off their own separate hall are a second bedroom with a queen bed, a third with two twin beds, and a second full bath with soaking tub and shower. The fourth bedroom is furnished as a TV room but also has a full hide-a-bed. The large screened lanai looks south on a garden of tropical foliage. Please ASK about our NEW POOL home 'BLUE HERON' available right across the street from Sandpiper House.

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 North Naples

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.

Grear Florida Vacation Awaits

  • 5 of 5

Sandpiper was exactly as described on its web site...clean comfortable,spacious and well equipped. The loungers on the lanai were the perfect place to relax and read. (or nap).The quiet residential neighborhood was easy to navigate on bike or foot It is near grocery stores, Wal Mart, upscale shops, movie theaters, fast food and good restaurants. We enjoyed visiting nearby Delnor Wiggins State Park. It has convenient rest rooms, shaded picnic tables, and during the week , few people.

Sandpiper even comes with beach chairs and toys, beach towels and picnic cooler. Cate and Peter have thought of everything to make our vacation carefree. I would recommend Sandpiper to anyone who is looking for a relaxing vacation in the South Florida sunshine.

The best rentable house we could ever find

  • 5 of 5

For Many years we do spend holidays in Naples Park. We found since 5 years the right place with the right owners. We are very fussy on every thing as we are runniing in France rentals.

i do recomande those rentals for fussy people who will rent with confidence Michele

Comfortable, well equipped and highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

A lovely, comfortable and well equipped home in a quiet street with good access to Vanderbilt Beach and only a short-drive from the centre of Naples.

My family of five (ages 46 to 15) had a great time staying at Sandpiper. We managed to fit in a number of nature reserves (including the Audobon Society's 'Ding' Darling reserve (up on Sanibel Island) and Corkscrew Swap Sanctuary), stroll the beautiful streets of Naples, take a boat-trip along the Gordon River, watch Dolphins from Vanderbilt beach, lose a day to the Mall and generally have a wonderful time.

The house had everything we needed (and, in fact, plenty more including bikes and a barbecue) and was clean on arrival and comfortable throughout our stay. Homeowners Cate & Peter have been great to deal with too; it's so nice to deal with good people!

All in all, Sandpiper is wholeheartedly recommended!!!

Lovely location, spacious property

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay in Sandpiper. The owners had left welcoming touches and helpful information about the house and the local area. The house is large and on one floor. It is located near the beach and good local shops and restaurants. There are plenty of towels and beach towels and we cooked wonderful local produce on the barbeque. The summer value rate is exactly that ....we hope to return to stay either here or in one of Cate and Pete's other properties. They are friendly and helpful landlords!

Wonderful time in a welcoming home

  • 5 of 5

The whole experience from the beginning was wonderful, the owners manage the property in such a way that you feel welcomed and at ease at that home.

I have read all available reviews available, before we rented the house for the first time ( last year) and all was what said in them was true!It was quite unusual because sometimes when you read the reviews on properties,they sound a little bit stretched out, but not in this case.The owners are really very helpful and efficient, the houses are clean, very well equipped and welcoming , that you almost feel like this is your own summer home.This is a second year we have rented from this particular owners and I know we will be back next year.

The fact that we could bring our dog with us was additional bonus, thank you Mr and Mr Goodin for a great time in your home!
