About the property

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. We provide a season pass to all state parks.

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 Vanderbilt Beach

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.

Wonderful family vacation property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic spring break family vacation in this property! For starters, the location is ideal in that it is very close to the beach and lots of shopping/dining options are just a few minutes away. The house has everything you need and the owner's (Margaret and Paul) attention to detail is much appreciated! We were very impressed with the quality of the furniture, kitchen items, linens, etc. -And I love all of the organization in the home. There is a spot (and in some cases labels) for everything!

Paul followed up with me mid-week to ask how the vacation was going and if we needed anything which we felt was thoughtful and going above and beyond (vs. typical rental property owners). We spent lots of time relaxing in the pool, hitting the beach and eating/drinking well! We would definitely rent this property again and we hope to return to Naples in the not too distant future!

A perfect place!!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year we stayed at Paul & Margaret's beautiful home. The house is well decorated, clean and included almost everything that's needed for your stay. The kitchen includes multiple coffee makes (drip, K-cup, Bodum), every utensil imaginable, wine glasses, cocktail glasses, wine cooler fridge, etc., etc.. The bathrooms are spotless and provide many sets of towels for bathing as well as for the beach. Four adult bikes, helmets, locks, beach chairs, umbrellas are just the beginning of the goodies they provide. The layout of the house is just perfect for entertaining family and friends. There is a very large dining table adjacent to the kitchen and just a short distance to the outside screened covered porch lanai that has an awesome sitting area with large sofa, two chairs w/ ottomans and a swing! They even provide a Sony BT wireless rechargeable speaker that worked great out by the heated pool.

Last, but not least, our weather was just perfect. During our entire stay during March, we had no rain and sunshine everyday except our last day it was overcast while we packed for our return trip home.

As I described in my title....it's a perfect place!

Paradise in Naples

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently spent eight weeks at this property. It is a gem. We found the house spotless, beautifully decorated, well-organized, and well-equipped, including for long-term rentals. The pool is very nice (with optional heat), and the surrounding lanai comfortable and inviting.

The location is very safe and extremely convenient to beaches, restaurants, grocery stores, shopping and a movie theater. We primarily used the beach at the nearby Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park. It is just a five-minute drive away, and the owners have graciously provided a State Park pass (admittance is otherwise $6.00 per car per day), along with all necessary beach equipment (multiple chairs, umbrellas and coolers). There are also four bikes and helmets available.

The owners, Paul and Margaret, were a pleasure to deal with and very responsive to any of our questions. They also offered numerous recommendations for local activities and restaurants. It is obvious that they take great pride in their Naples home. We have already booked our stay at this property for next year!

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.
