The location is great and this unit is very clean and by far the the most complete and tastefully decorated of any where we have stayed.

We are looking forward to our next visit." Richard Fekete

Quiet, Quaint, Clean, Beautifully decorated

  • 5 of 5

Our stay Steve and Bernice condo at Vanderbilt Palms was absolutely awesome. We loved, loved, lived it. The condo is very clean and updated. It has a homey feel and is just right for a couple or maybe a couple with one or two children. The rooftop pool and hot tub had a beautiful view of bay. No lack of restaurants or shopping. We didn't want to leave. Beach is a short stroll away. Hope to be back next year. Highly recommended.

Little Ritz by the Bay

  • 5 of 5

I look forward to days of relaxation, being around good friends, fun and just easy and pleasant living. I have all of this and more at my little place by the Ritz. Easy days on the beach and restaurants are around every corner, even at the beach. The views of the bay from the pool and spa on the roof keep my mind at ease. The place is actually good for you! Bernice and Steve are the best and always available. We have met wonderful people through them. Owners keep it spotless with constant updates. Everything is there for a carefree vacation. I truly can't say enough! I will always keep coming back.

Cute Cozy Cottage by the Sea

  • 5 of 5

Breathtaking views: one side ocean, other side bay. Vibrant activities going on both sides. Quiet luxuriating downtime in the best possible way. This hideaway has the perfect setup: fully equipped unit, absolutely complete with a most inclusive group of strangers that become friends. There are constant upgrades each year to the unit; owners live next door and welcome you every day. . Pool and hot tub on the roof complete the day, after one block to the gorgeous white sand Vanderbuilt Beach, the pool is a treat for serious swimmers. I'll be back for the 6th time!

Back again.

  • 5 of 5

We have enjoyed this unit many times and we keep returning because there is no better value near the beach. The owners keep adding improvements year by year. If you have never been to Naples before, this property is in an ideal location for the beach, restaurants and shopping.

This is a fantastic condo located close to the beach. Great location for biking or running through the neighborhoods in the morning and recovering on the beach in the afternoons. Owners keep it well maintained and very clean
