About Dave and Shelly Kievit

Originally from Southwest Michigan. We bought our first home in Naples Park in1989. We have spent many vacations in the Southwest Florida region. In 2012 we retired from our jobs based in Michigan and made our permanent move to Florida.

Dave and Shelly Kievit purchased this bungalow in 2009

Why Dave and Shelly Kievit chose Vanderbilt Beach

The proximity of "The Park" relative to the beaches, shopping, hospitals,Bonita Springs, Estero, Fort Meyers, Marco Island made our decision to buy here an easy one. We have watched Naples Park grow and develop into a much sought after area for vacationers and homeowners alike.

What makes this bungalow unique

We love the old Florida flavor of The Bungalow. It is a " Florida CRACKER" design outside with Florida BEACH theme inside.

We live one street away from the rental, so we're able to provide immediate results if and when a problem should arise.

This property is close to everything! BEACHES, SHOPPING, CASUAL & FINE dining. (TRADER JOE'S, WHOLE FOODS, SEED TO TABLE, PUBLIX, WALMART all < 2 miles/ most within 1 mile)

The private backyard provides our guests with relaxing mornings and evenings on the patio.

A trolley stop is three short blocks from the rental. Stops are made at THE MERCATO ,(1.2 miles). This is a complex including a variety of upscale shops, restaurants, clubs and state of the art movie theater. If you continue riding/driving south (9.1 miles) you could enjoy the day or evening at 5th avenue in downtown Naples.

My wife and I had a great and relaxing vacation at this charming bungalow. The owners went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable. The location is perfect and allowed us to easily access the many attractions around Naples. The inside of the bungalow was spotlessly cleaned and had all the comforts of home. The exterior offered us relaxing views of either the natural settings, including an osprey nest, or the friendly and quiet neighborhood. Great owners + location + accommodations = Perfection!

Excellent Accommodation for two people

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The place was very clean with everything being quite new. The owners supplied a lot of extra amenities eg -water & coffee . We enjoyed the private patio complete with a table and umbrella. We definitely hope to be able to rent it again when we return to Naples

Great Spot for Two

  • 5 of 5

Dave and Shelley greeted us upon our arrival. The home was very clean and tastefully decorated. Snacks were very appreciated and tasty after a long trip. The size was wonderful for the two of us. Linens were high quality and bed was very comfortable. Washer and dryer worked well and were great to have. My partner had to do some unexpected work and the internet was fast and handled conference calls etc well. Great stay in a pretty home. Thanks Dave and Shelley

The cozy yellow bungalow fit our needs perfectly! It was convenient to beaches, restaurants and shopping. The owners welcomed us into their spotless rental with fresh flowers, wine, and sweets. Shelly and Dave couldn't have been more accommodating. The cottage was a comfortable place to return to after a day enjoying all Naples has to offer. We would highly recommend this property.
