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 3+ 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 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 2 bikes, 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 for a family

  • 5 of 5

We were in Florida for a beach wedding at La Playa on Vanderbuilt beach. This location was perfect, 4 or 5 minutes from the La Playa. Plenty of room for all 6 of us plus a baby. The owners were very accommodating in bringing us last minute request items such as a high chair. House is nice, clean and kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans utensils as well as spices and condiments! We enjoyed our breakfast in the screened in porch area. (Good value - furniture and bedding a bit dated, but clean, so who cares!)

Perfect location and great people to rent from

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't ask for a better location. Walking distance to Vanderbilt beach, Whole Foods and Mercato for great happy hours. Centrally located for downtown and Bonita Springs activities and restaurants. We had a couple of minor house issues and told Peter no rush but he was out that day or the next fixing them. The house is spacious and very livable for the month we were there. We had an incredible month in Naples at this house.

What a lovely location and property to vacation at

  • 5 of 5

This has been the best vacation we have had. The location of the property is within reasonable walking distance of Vanderbilt Beach. For the energetic though its a short distance anyway bikes are available. This quiet neighbourhood is ideal for a reasonably priced family break. Everything you could want is readily to hand. Any issues the owners were always contactable and all communications were excellent and trouble free. Would thoroughly recommend and look forwards to visiting again. Many thanks

Perfect location and great value

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our needs. The location was convenient to everything. The unit was well equipped, and even had bicycles for my husband and I to ride down to the beach and not have to deal with the hassle of parking. The owners were wonderful and very helpful. They were available and accessible at all times and made sure we had everything we needed. They were sincerely interested in fixing things if there were any maintenance issues.

Beautiful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

I needed a place to go after being discharged from the hospital. I was so excited to find this beautiful home! Upon arrival, the property surpassed my expectations. It is spacious, tastefully decorated and exceptionally clean. There was a perfect place for my service dog to relieve himself as well. The home is well furnished with a pretty well equpit kitchen. I felt very much at home which made my recovery even easier. The location is convenient to just about anything you can possibly think of. The owners go out of their way to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Without a shadow of a doubt, I would love to stay again!
