The first thing you will do when you open the front door is smile. This is a happy place! We finished a complete remodel in August of 2013 and continue to make sure the house is in "like new" condition. With the exception of a few cool vintage pieces, everything in the house is new! Most of the art is original and a good number of the pieces are vintage as well.
The place has a nice vibe. Cool, but not so cool you don't want to sit on anything. Serene and lively at the same time, depending on where you're looking.

We are from Indianapolis, IN. Jeff is a nationally recognized artist specializing in public installations. I have owned a small business in the Indianapolis area for the last 23 years.
Gloria purchased this house in 2013
We rented a property in Olde Naples for a couple winters, so we knew we loved the Naples area. We fell in love with the open layout of this house (after a couple walls came down) and the way the entire backside of the house could be opened up to the outdoors. We later realized the neighborhood is ideally situated right in the middle of all Naples has to offer.
It was also important to us to buy an older home. This one was built in 1974. So many of the nice older homes in Naples are being torn down to make way for McMansions. It's very satisfying to bring an older home back.
The private Park Shore Owner's Park and Beach is unique in Naples. In season, parking can be a real problem at the public areas and there are very limited restroom facilities. Having this available is a tremendous benefit. Huge parking lot, spotless restroom facilities and a shower area as well, all just a few minutes from the house. We ride our bikes over for the sunset almost every night when we're in town.
5 star location. Close to a private beach club.
We spent 6 lovely weeks at Gloria and Jeff's beautiful house. Gloria asked us to contact her if we needed anything at all, quite simply we didn't as they had thought of everything . Beautiful contemporary house in an ideal location for access to downtown Naples and surrounding areas. The private beach access passes provided easy access to the nearby beach. If you like cycling they are 6 excellent bikes provided to choose from, we loved the freedom they provided. In brief you will love the house, area and in particular easy beach access. Thanks very much Gloria and Jeff, hope to see you soon Diane and John, Glasgow, Scotland.
This is such a lovely home and beautifully presented. The moment you walk through the door you're immediately impressed by the design and layout, and you just know you made the right choice. Then you begin to notice just how well equipped it is - Gloria and Jeff have thought of everything, it really is like being home from home. Everything from the pool deck area with plenty of beds and seating, the relaxing TV lounge with latest technologies, to the variety of beach amenities... the list goes on.
The home itself is in a great location being close to beaches, shopping and restaurants. We regularly took the bikes out for rides down to Naples 5th Avenue, 3rd Street South for coffee and shops, to the pier, and always felt safe riding between neighborhoods.
Gloria was lovely to deal with and genuinely wanted us to have the perfect stay, and I can honestly say that we did for the whole of our two weeks stay. I definitely recommend this home, don't hesitate to book, and I would gladly look to stay here again.
Thank you Gloria and Jeff. All the best. Matt and family.
This is our second time saying in this property and again we were not disappointed. The house is well maintained and equipped with all you need for a relaxed home from home experience. Great location, close to shops and only a short drive to Old Naples and the pier. Private beach access at Park Shore is also a huge bonus. I would without hesitation recommend this property and be sure that any future tenants would not be disappointed.
This was our 3rd time/year (in a row...) renting this property and, once again, we were completely blown away by the quality of everything. This place never disappoints and I don't think I could get my family to stay anywhere else in Naples.
My new husband and I rented the place for 1 week for our honeymoon. We expected a nice time based upon all the reviews we read... However... nothing could prepare us for the relaxing paradise we were greeted with!! This home is passionately decorated to give you the ultimate feeling of comfort and relaxation. There is not a single need or want left unmet. EVERYTHING you could possibly think of needing in a vacation home is at this pad! The pool..... HOLY COW!!!! Talk about relaxing! I myself fell asleep on a raft for almost 2 hours my first day there!!! One would think that summer in Naples is sweltering... but the lanai fan makes the lounging area at the pool so pleasant!! Most all of our evening were spent just sitting out there and enjoying the impeccably lit landscape. Trust me when I say, you will tear up too when you have to leave this place.
Gloria made us feel so welcomed by putting together the perfect Honeymoon Welcome Kit in our fridge.. Equipped with Wedding Champagne, cheese, crackers, and a delicious fig spread.. The key lime cookies paired perfectly with our Coronas! Basically.. you would be crazy to not rent this place.. and possibly desiring to offer them millions to buy it.. because these people KNOW how to make a vacation home!!!!! Gloria and Jeff are just a few swipes of your fingers away if you need ANYTHING. Plus they know ALL the best places to eat, when to go there, and what to order.
These two are obviously passionate about their hospitality!
We will definitely be coming back sooner rather than later.
Access to the Park Shore Owners private park and beach - This is a bigger deal than one would think. Because...You'll always have a parking spot and you'll have a shower and restroom to use only available to pass holders.
Park Shore beach walk - Wonderful walkway along the beach running the length of the neighborhood. Great for a run or stroll.
Venetian Village - Walk or ride your bike here. It's that close! This may or may not be a good thing as there are so many wonderful shops and restaurants.
Go to M Grille for lunch and have the bento box.
Waterside Shops - Very chic, high-end mall anchored by Nordstrom and Saks. Several good places to eat there like Brio and California Pizza Kitchen. 1.8 miles from the house.
The Mercato - Another great shopping/dining/entertainment area. Whole foods is here as well as the nicest movie theatre you've ever been to, Silverspot. If you're dubious about your movie selection, have them serve you a glass of wine. It'll make the movie better. 4.8 miles from the house.
Olde Naples - 5th Avenue South and 3rd Street South - This is what a lot of people come to Naples for. The most vibrant area. Lots of shopping and eating to be done. Hit Café Lurcat before 6:00 and you'll enjoy the early bird special and drink special. Cinnamon-sugar donuts for dessert that literally melt in your mouth. 3.9 miles from the house.
Wynn's Market - Awesome family owned market (can you believe they still exist?!) tons of specialty food, great wine selection, extensive deli and premade meals. I love everything about this place other than the cashiers. They're slightly shy of social. I'm on a campaign to kill them with kindness. Help me out. 3.3 miles from the house.
Briggs Wellness Center - This is a really, really nice gym. Lots of group classes and you never have to wait in line for a machine. If you're a swimmer, they have a lovely outdoor lap pool. If you need a personal trainer while in Naples I can hook you up with Allyson, who is most likely the best personal trainer in the western hemisphere. 3.2 miles from the house.
Fresh Market - This is the closest grocery shopping to the house and offers a wonderful selection of organic and specialty food. 1.6 miles from the house.
