This is a beautiful place for a small family to stay in Naples. The location is perfect - close to the beach and you can walk or bike everywhere. Greg is a great host and the cottage has everything you will need to have a great holiday.

Pretty Dover Cottage is perfect.

  • 5 of 5

This is our third year renting Dover Cottage. Greg and his family couldn't be more gracious and responsive. They thought of everything to make our stay carefree and comfortable. The location is excellent, it is a big treat to walk to restaurants, shops and beach everyday. Plus, if we don't feel like going anywhere, we just kick back with a good book on the porch in the back garden. Although we have literally just signed the guestbook and closed the door, we are already counting the days till we come back.

Fabulous charm!

  • 5 of 5

My husband were pleasantly surprised to see the cottage was impeccably clean upon our arrival. The place was inviting, charming and wonderfully decorated. Greg was attentive and checked in with us to make sure we were comfortable and all we needed. He was quick to respond to a couple very small issues we had. We had such a comfortable relaxing stay and felt at home in Dover Cottage and look forward to returning to this inviting little slice of Olde Naples.

Immaculate, comfortable, convenient!

  • 5 of 5

The owner provided clear and thorough information. He checked in with us within a couple of days to ensure we were comfortable and he was very accommodating.

The cottage was immaculate. The floor plan was open. The decor and colors were whimsical and fun. It included all of the comforts of home. There was a comfortable screened in porch to enjoy coffee in the morning, and a glass of wine in the evening with the string lights illuminating the back yard in the evening.

The location was perfect - 1 block from the shops and restaurants on 3rd Avenue and an easy 3-block walk to the beach. It was very convenient to park the car and walk.

We enjoyed breakfast at Jane’s on 3rd, light fare at the Old Naples Pub, a drink at the Dock at Crayton Cove, and dinner at Campiello. It was a very short drive to the restaurants and shops on Fifth Avenue.

We enjoyed the Christmas celebration, tree lighting and all of the decorations on 3rd Avenue and 5th Avenue.

We’re looking forward to our next visit!

Modern Comfort in Old Naples

  • 5 of 5

Had the most relaxing and comfortable 3-night stay at Dover Cottage over Thanksgiving weekend. Greg is the consummate host. I received email updates way in advance of my trip and he made my arrival most seamless. The cottage has everything you need. Highlights are morning coffee on the lanai with the gulf breeze blowing through the screens, Netflix to catch up on a few shows and a spacious master bedroom with a great bed. The cottage is situated just blocks from the beach and from both the 5th Avenue and 3rd Street shopping districts. Highly recommend BadAss Coffee on 3rd Street! I look forward to returning to Dover Cottage sometime soon.
