About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Southern Exposure!!!!!!!!

Walk to Vanderbilt Beach or Wiggins State Park Beach!

Email owner for rates and availability.

Just a short walk or bike ride to Wiggins State Park Beach and Vanderbilt Beach, this 3 bedroom, 2 bath, 2000 square foot, Tommy Bahama style updated home is nestled on a canal with SOUTHERN EXPOSURE that affords you year- round maximum sunshine. The ranch home is handicapped friendly and is located halfway down a street (not at the east end of the waterway called the coconut catcher where the wind blows the debris in front of the property) far away from road or foot traffic. No road noise or gawkers.

Once the double sliding door walls open onto the large covered Lanai, the interior transforms into an outdoor oasis with a 36 ft pool and jetted spa that is warmed up by a large commercial heater. The entire home is hardwood and tile that makes it easy to clean and ward off allergens. The good sized granite and stainless gourmet kitchen, fully equipped, allows you to interact with your family and guests in the home and on the lanai as you prepare your favorite meals.

Internet and WiFi Access as well as 3 TVs allow you to stay connected to the world if you are so inclined to do so. If not, you have use of the boat lift and dock that take you directly into the Gulf of Mexico. Additionally, you have access to 5 new bikes, beach chairs, beach umbrella, fishing poles, a variety of pool toys, and a Vanderbilt Beach and all Collier County beach Parking Pass.

The master suite is separated by the open living area for privacy but also opens onto the lanai. On the opposite side of the house, there is one room with two twin beds and another with a queen. All of the furnishings are smart and transport you away from the hustle and bustle and to the tranquility of the South Florida lifestyle.

Everyone loves luxury bathrooms. The two bathrooms have double granite sinks and state of the art fixtures. The master has a huge beautifully tiled shower with floor to ceiling glass doors. The second bathroom that accommodates the other 2 bedrooms has a gigantic soaking tub with two huge glass doors.

In lieu of staying at the Ritz Carlton or the La Playa resort, you can enjoy their restaurants but still savor the peace and quiet that a neighborhood home offers. You are only a 5 minute drive to the hip Mercato Plaza with plenty of popular shops and restaurants. Furthermore, you are close to The Children’s Museum, The Sun and Fun Lagoon Water Park, and grocery shopping. The house is only a 25 minute drive from the Fort Myers Airport and offers a multitude of conveniences.

If you are interested in vacationing in paradise, e-mail Tony for seasonal rates.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi tony, after reviewing the valves this morning the top valve was due west not SW like the photos. It was in pool mode . I have not changed to spa mode even though the ladies were wanting the spa hot last night after dinner . Prefer to look at things during the light of day. So it seems better now. Although we have not been here at house much it is very nice .

Very Nice Property in Naples

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a great time in this home. We are fortunate to be able to travel to great locations and resorts, usually on business. Because of that, when we travel on "our dime" we're a bit picky about where we stay. This home was attractive, comfortable and nicely furnished, and the pool area was great as well - we're glad we chose it. Owner was responsive when we had a couple questions. Convenient to beaches and restaurants. I wish we had stayed longer than our five nights, and I can see us coming back next year!

Green Pool, Bad A/C, Defensive/Unapologetic Owner

  • 1 of 5

We were coming to visit my family for the weekend and wanted a house with a pool for our children to be entertained after going to the beach in the morning. With 3 small children (under the age of 7), we simply cannot stay at the beach all day and require some cover from the sun to ensure safety for our kids. We spent a little more on this house than we wanted to because it was a little bigger, a little closer to the beach, and the pictures looked much nicer than other homes available on those dates. When we arrived at the home we immediately noticed the pool was green and not a place for anyone to swim. The ceiling has noticeable issues that have been patch fixed as it looks like there was water damage or leaking from the roof. The kitchen area has many roach traps on the counter as well as ant traps. The bathrooms have cracking through much of the tile work and also appear to have water damage patched up and not fully fixed. The light switch in the master bathroom has a gap between the top of the plastic and the drywall which would seem to be against electrical code. This house overall is nothing like the pictures posted on the website. When I called the homeowner to discuss the issue of the pool he mentioned that his neighbor had told him the pool was green the day before and that he had the pool company come out earlier in the day to remedy the issue. He also gave me the number of the pool company although they never returned my call or picked up the phone after 5 attempts to contact them directly. The owner also would not pick up my phone call after the first conversation we had which was disconcerting to say the least. After we decided that we would still unpack and figure out how to proceed, we noticed that the air conditioner was not really working. When we awoke (8 am) the air temperature on the thermostat showed 78 degrees and had moved from 83 when we arrived at 4pm the day before. I live in Central Florida where the heat is quite extreme and have 10' ceilings and have an air conditioner that within a couple hours moves from 81 to 73 without issue, so I know that a house with 8' ceilings should not have this type of problem with cooling. When I called the customer service group on Saturday morning, Stephanie was extremely helpful and showed great concern for my issues. They moved us to a hotel with a pool.The owner was obviously not interested in helping or admitting fault in any situation with this rental.

Owner's Response: Naples and the surrounding beaches experienced Red Tide (an algae bloom) this spring as it does every year. Being so close to the beach, the pools in the area are susceptible to this as well. I rely on my pool service company to step up their efforts this time of year to keep the pool in shape. As with most pool service companies they experience a high turn over in employees. As a result, my pool's weekly service was missed one week. I was notified by a neighbor that the pool was turning green and immediately got them there to shock it. This was the day before this tenants arrival. They/ pool company said it would be safe to swim 24 hours later. This tenant was only there for the weekend so apparently this was not good enough for them. They stayed for 15 hours and left. That afternoon the pool cleared up. The A/C unit is only two years old and works just fine. Have no idea what they are talking about. The house is currently occupied with no complaints. The nitpickng of the details of the house are exaggerated. The entire exterior of the home was just painted and the interior is scheduled for this fall. The pool pump and heater were just replaced in April. The entire pool deck was just painted in May. The home is in excellent condition, maintained professionally, and all the reviews confirm that. Despite their unfounded complaints I refunded them. They were tenants for 3 nights, not buyers of a $1.3 million dollar home. One of the worst tenants I've ever had. Read the real reviews.

Excellent experience in a very nice home

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 nights in May 2018 and enjoyed our time there immensely. The property is well-maintained and the house was spotless upon our arrival. The pool and spa are as advertised, and the heater system for them worked very well. Tony is an extremely responsive host, as well, and was gracious enough to respond to my (annoying) questions very quickly. The property is quiet, and while there are neighbors close by we rarely saw or heard them. The beach is a short bike ride away (probably a bit far to walk, if you're carrying stuff), and the house comes equipped with everything you'd need for the beach, as well. We're currently planning to return again. This home is an excellent bargain that I can fully recommend.

Good location, nice pool

  • 3 of 5

We rented the house for 4th of July weekend and overall it was o.k.. Unfortunately when we stayed there there was an AC leak and for the 3 days and nights we had water dripping from the ceiling. Also, there was ant infestation in the kitchen and 3 out of 5 bikes were not usable. The owner Tony was apologetic but some of the things like bikes / ants can be prevented and when I spent $$$ I want to enjoy my time with family and not worry about ants getting into my food or wet towels all over the floor due to water dripping from the ceiling. Anyway, the pool and outside patio were very beautiful and we enjoyed our time outdoors. Also the house is located very close to the beach which is convenient.

Owner's Response: Sorry about the AC leak, as soon as you made me aware of it, I had two men there to fix it. As you know, if you are a homeowner, sometimes things break. I have contractors on standby to fix any issue ASAP. Typically I rent by the week so your short stay over a holiday was affected, sorry. In South Florida, there is no winter to kill off critters. If you leave food out in the kitchen or drop crumbs on the floor, you will get ants. The home is sprayed monthly for insects and I've never seen one there. Many tenants come from up north and are not used to this. Keep the food in the frig and you will not have ants. Bikes are serviced regularly. In the garage there are spare tubes and a pump. Occasionally a flat tire may need fixing. It's simple. If I'm made aware of it, I can send someone over. Your short stay over a holiday weekend for a 3 bedroom home, with private pool and spa on the water was $ not $$$.

Beautiful property with everything we needed

We stayed at Tony's property in May and had a wonderful time. The pool and spa were amazing as well as the view of the inter coastal. The house had everything we needed and Tony was very responsive. We will be back!
