Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in East Naples

Bungalow on the water, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Newly remodeled downstairs apartment. Lush tropical setting on a large corner lot literally surrounded by water. Only minutes from downtown Naples, exclusive shops of Fifth Avenue South, Third Street South, and quaint shops of Tin City Market Place. Beautiful Naples Botanical Gardens is only 1.5 mi. away.

Relaxing is easy in this living space as the home is a cozy oasis with wide-open views which overlook palm trees and other Florida native plants. As you can see by the photos, you are surrounded by mangroves, nature and you have direct access to the Gulf of Mexico. A boat dock and fish cleaning station on site for your use.

This Oasis awaits you if you are looking for a secluded location only minutes from civilization. Whether you fish or not....whether you boat or not, just come to relax.

About The Owner

Being raised in Michigan I have always had a passion for boating and being on the water. At the same time, I love to share this lil' utopia with others - allowing them to have the vacation of their dreams.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2003

Why The Owner chose Florida South Gulf Coast

Prior to purchasing this property I owned an island house which one could only get to by boat. The moment I saw this property I had to have it! It has that same island feel however much more practical. My friends call it, 'Kate's lil' spot of paradise,' and that it truly is!

We have just spent a week at Kate's Place and could not have enjoyed it more. She was such a gracious host and cook..the key lime pie was delicious. The cute get-away was very well cared for and as clean as anyone could possibly ask for. There were several places to sit and watch the wildlife and boats go by. We even saw a raccoon on two different occasions . This place was close to everything we wanted to do and yet offered the privacy and quiet time that we were looking for. We will definitely be return visitors.

Kate's Place Rocks!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Today is our last day at Kate's Place. This is our 2nd stay at Kate's Place and before we even leave we are checking her availability for another visit before year's end. Not only is her place top quality - she has thought of everything to make our visit feel like home - the house is charming, the view is amazing - there are a number of decks to choose from whether sitting in the sun, looking at the water or just sitting in the shade. The bed is very comfortable, the furniture too & the kitchen is well stocked with everything needed. Kate is a gracious hostess. We have visited a number of places over the years, and we would rank Kate's as one of the very best. We can't wait to come back! Thank you Kate!!

Irish eyes are smiling!

  • 5 of 5

This review is considerably overdue but the memories are still so fresh! Back home in the west of Ireland 'enjoying' four seasons in one day, we often chat about our holiday in Kate's place with great affection. We have many happy memories of sitting on the deck enjoying the lovely Florida sunsets and the cheerful greetings of the boaters as they passed by. Meeting Kate and her friends, including Tony and Terry and the gorgeous Kevin from Michigan, who we had the pleasure of meeting on his 21st birthday, have left us with great memories of a beautiful tranquil condo with every possible comfort, and really friendly people. Kate's place is very special and we look forward to returning again.

Thank you Kate for providing us with such an amazing place to call home for 4 nights. Every need was anticipated: the apartment was spotless, the kitchen well stocked, the bed and furniture was comfortable, the outside areas were well maintained, and we were even able to park our car in the garage! We were able to show up and relax! The location is close to many Naples attractions. I will definitely be back.

We just spent 4 wonderful nights in Naples! Kate's place was perfect! Everything was so clean and well kept, the bed was very comfortable, and the setting was priceless! We enjoyed watching the wildlife, boats going by and the changing of the weather. You have a choice of 6 or 7 different areas to sit and enjoy the scenery (screened in, outdoors or inside in A/C). Kate provides kayaks, bikes, chairs, an umbrella, beach towels, fishing gear, boat taxi schedule, a fully stocked kitchen, etc. She also gave us wonderful advice on the best beach access, freshest grocery store and a delicious restaurant. We could not be more pleased with staying at this tropical paradise! We would absolutely recommend it to anyone!

Perfect place to relax!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 week stay at Kate's place. Immaculately clean ,along with everything you need to enjoy your stay. We loved watching the fish jump and the boats come and go. Oh and the Key Lime Pie in the fridge was


A plus for us was meeting Kate's family and friends. A fun group.

We are looking forward to our stay next year.

Thanks Kate!
