Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday bungalow in Naples Park - Luxury and the Beach

3 bedroom, 2 bathroom luxury villa with screened heated pool close to the beach

If you love the beach, fine dining and shopping, but like the privacy and comfort of a single home, then our luxury 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home with a private screened, heated pool is a perfect choice. The house is located 3/4 miles from Vanderbilt Beach in Naples near the Ritz Hotel, a 5 minute bike ride (bicycles provided) or a 15 minute walk along the bay. One mile in the other direction is the uptown Mercato – dining and entertainment area with many restaurants, great clubs including trendy Blue Martini, two movie theaters, and fine shopping including Whole Foods Market, Nordstrom Rack and variety of specialty boutiques. Fitness Club and Community Tennis Club are also a walking distance! Two miles away is the entrance to the Delnor Wiggins State Park with another mile of unspoiled beach. Naples Downtown and Pier, Tin City, Naples Zoo, Water Park, Miromar Outlets, and several more state parks such as Lover's Key or the Everglades are all 20-30 min drive.

The house, a post-2000 built Italian-style villa, has been completely updated in Oct 2014 with new bathrooms, granite kitchen counter top, new high-end appliances and modern furniture.

Nature provides tropical weather and over 300 days of sunshine each year in Naples. We provide everything else you need for a great vacation, from fully equipped kitchen, gas BBQ, to bikes and beach gear.

About Margaret and Paul Rachniowski

Margaret and Paul Rachniowski live in Ottawa, Canada. We love Naples with its beautiful beaches, subtropical climate, great shopping and entertainment. The whole town has the feel of a luxury resort. We furnished this house withe the fine furniture and decor sparing no effort and expense to provide a beautifully furnished vacation home..

Margaret and Paul Rachniowski purchased this bungalow in 2014

Why Margaret and Paul Rachniowski chose North Naples

We wanted a new house with enough space for the whole family to stay together, but within a short distance to the beach. We scored a win with our new home which is located near one of the top beaches in the US, and close to all amenities and a vibrant Mercato area. You can leave your car behind and walk or bike everywhere.

What makes this bungalow unique

Our new home is modern and spacious, with tall ceilings, three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a very large living room with open-concept kitchen. It has a large covered lanai which overlooks the private screened heated pool, and has a two-car garage to store the bicycles and beach equipment.

Lovely place to stay with all that you'd require.....

  • 5 of 5

This villa in Naples has all the facilities that you can imagine you'd ever need. Spotlessly clean, with modern and new décor throughout. The owners had left the use of beach equipment and bikes which added to the overall experience. The villa is located with easy access to beach, with retail and restaurants options very close by also.

Overall we used the time to relax after a hectic two weeks in Central Florida, and this place is ideal for that.

Easy correspondence and arrangements via the owners made the planning of the stay simple and straight forward.

If you want to visit Naples and surrounding areas, or just relax in the villa, I can highly recommend this place!

Einfach Grossartig

  • 5 of 5

Die Beschreibung und die Bewertungen versprechen nicht zuviel! Das Haus befindet sich inmitten einer ruhigen Gegend in Naples. Die Ausrüstung lässt keine Wünsche offen, alles was man braucht ist vorhanden. Das Haus und auch die gesamte Einrichtung ist in einem sehr gepflegten Zustand. Besonders erwähnenswert ist auch die Hilfsbereitschaft und Freundlichkeit der Vermieter. Fragen werden sofort beantwortet und spezielle Anliegen flexibel behandelt. Wir waren für 8 Nächte in diesem grossartigen Haus und haben den Aufenthalt sehr genossen.

Wonderful Stay In A Great House

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house in August for 9 days. Up to arrival everything had run smoothly. The owners Margaret and Paul are great communicators and respond quickly and efficiently to booking requests and questions. On arrival at the house we were very impressed with the cleanliness of the house and the high quality finish to the rooms. I believe from the owners that much of the house has been re-modelled. The house has a modern yet comfortable feel. Every detail has been thought of. The kitchen is very well stocked with everything required for a self catering holiday in the way of pots, pans, dishes and cutlery. The appliances such as the fridge/freezer, hob & oven, microwave are of an excellent quality so 'cooking in' is just like being at home. The bedrooms are nicely furnished as is the lounge area. The bathrooms are modern and spacious. Although we did not use them there are 4 bikes available for use, as well as a beach cart with beach chairs and beach umbrellas. The property which is well located for access to Vanderbilt Beach and also US 41 highway, where there are a number of shops, restaurants, chemists etc. The pool was clean and large, the outdoor furniture is of a good quality and there is a huge BBQ. We would certainly have no hesitation recommending this house or the owners and would be happy to re book. I think the fact that the owners are so efficient also helps as it makes you feel comfortable booking. All in all we had a great stay and hope to return. Cannot recommend the house highly enough.

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family. We have a son who uses a wheelchair and it is difficult to find homes to rent for him. Although this home was not accessible by ADA standards, we were able to make do. The first thing we noticed upon entering the home was how immaculately clean it was. The hallways were nice and wide, which is great for wheelchair users. The home is beautifully decorated with a simple, contemporary vibe. Most importantly, the master bed was divinely comfortable.

This house was also one of the most well equipped homes I have ever rented. It was like having your own vacation home! They had beach towels, beach chairs, umbrellas and a buggy to cart it all in. For the pool there were noodles. For riding around the neighborhood there were several bicycles. An extra refrigerator in the garage was very nice. In the kitchen, I cannot recall anything that was lacking for meal preparation. There were spices available, starter supplies on almost everything. All I can say is that the owners really do think about what their guests will appreciate and they do it! We would definitely consider staying here again.

I almost forgot to mention that we did encounter a problem during our stay. The hot water heater quit working. Paul, the owner, was quick to respond and he had a contractor over ASAP. They had to install a new one and all was well.

Doesn't get any better than this!

  • 5 of 5

When we booked our stay from the listing on VRBO, we thought Margaret and Paul's house looked perfect. Well...from the moment we walked through the front door, their home kept getting better and better. First and foremost, their house is immaculate, nicely decorated and meticulously maintained. They have done a remarkable job with providing all of the necessary accommodations for a month long stay. Beds are very comfortable, bathrooms are fresh and clean and the kitchen is extremely well appointed with every gadget /utensil you would need. For example, they have a Kuerig single serve coffee machine, a Krups regular high end drip coffee system and if that doesn't satisfy you, you also provide a Bodum coffee press! Talk about over the top! The other aspect we really liked was the layout of the house. The open floor plan provided a perfect environment for entertaining our family and guests. The pool is clean and was the perfect temperature for our swimming. Another benefit was the provided four bikes (with locks) and all of the sand chairs, the cooler, the sand cart that made our daily trips to the beach all the better. The location is close enough to walk or ride the bikes to Vanderbilt beach. Neighborhood is very nice and quiet. There is a LA Fitness health club less than a mile that offers a monthlong membership for $85. Our two favorite eating places were Buzz's Lighthouse (across from Vanderbilt beach) for the grouper rueben sandwich that was AWESOME! Our other favorite was Randy's at 106th and 41. The hogfish (doesn't sound very appetizing but waiter told us it was their best fish) became our top choice. They also sell fresh fish for take home where we grilled our own hogfish a few times. Oh yah, we voted Randy's key lime pie the best of our trip (I think we tried them all!). Bottom line, Margaret and Paul's home was the perfect place for us to spend our spring vacation. We liked it so much, we booked it again for next year!

Better than the picture

  • 5 of 5

Great location. Recently remodeled. Nice furnishings. Everything in working order. This truly was a home away from home. We've used VRBO more than a dozen times and this home was one of our favorites. We'd ride bikes to Vanderbilt beach everyday. Lovely home. We had a great time. Jon and Nada
