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.

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.

The unit was spotless and the owners could not have been more accommodating. I highly recommend this unit for comfort and accessibility to the beach, shopping and attractions. I would have given it 6 stars were they available....

Comfy & Cozy!

  • 5 of 5

What a way to enjoy Naples without all of the nose & traffic. I had stayed at The Bungalow that was just the right distance between some of the best beaches in the country & across the street from great dining & entertainment at The Mercato that features night clubs like The Blue Martini and world class shopping!

Thanks again and I will be coming back next year to relax & enjoy!
