About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath Single Family Home Off Sandpiper Street; Perfect For Couples!

**** Text 239-784-6383 for immediate response!!****

Well-appointed and tastefully furnished, Smuggler's Cove Cottage is a cozy home-base for your Naples trip. It's a 2 bedroom, 2 bath original 1970 home on a small cul-de-sac street off Sandpiper. We have restored it with new floors, plantation shutters, windows, paint etc. and our many repeat guests love it.

*******We keep our calendar current - Please see the calendar for available dates! If dates are blocked off as unavailable this means we unfortunately can't accomodate you since we have just this one house in Naples! ******************

The house has a master bedroom with attached bath and king-sized bed. The guest bedroom has a queen-sized bed and the guest bath is located off the same small hallway as the guest bedroom. The living room is comfortable with two sofas & chair to view the flat screen TV with basic cable TV channels. Basic amenities include:

- Wireless internet service

- Central AC

- Basic Cable TV

- Gas BBQ grill

- Pool table on enclosed lanai

- Beach chairs, towels, umbrella & toys

- Pack-n-play

- 2 Adult beach cruiser bicycles

- No dishwasher, but kitchen is otherwise fully equipped

The owners are long-time local Naples residents who personally take care that the house is ready for your arrival and are available in case you need assistance.

The location is fantastic. It's exactly 2 miles from the front door to the beach sand at the end of 5th Avenue downtown Naples. And along the way, easy to walk or bike to, are many restaurants, shops, art galleries and coffee houses. From the house you can walk to Tin City and restaurants like the Bonefish Grill and Pinchers Crab Shack. Or, you can drive the opposite direction to check out Marco Island, Everglades City and go on an airboat ride.

A family from Ohio wrote in our guestbook:

"This recently renovated cottage is adorable! It was perfect for our family of four. Very clean and well stocked with extra toiletries, kitchen supplies and laundry detergent. We enjoyed the bikes and used the beach equipment everyday, which also included a cooler, beach mats, nice beach towels and even sunscreen! We made reservations for dinner early at some fabulous restaurants; Campiello, Pazzo and Yabba Island Grill.. After a little shopping, it was fun coming home and watching a movie from a nice collection of DVD's with the kids. You can't beat the location, which is just a 2-5 minutes from everything Naples has to offer. We'd stay here again without question. We all felt more like guests of good friends rather than renters."

************** Sorry, we are not accepting reservations longer than 2 weeks during the high peak months of January - March. Any other month, April - Dec, we will accept monthly rentals. Smugglers Cove Cottage is a weekly vacation rental during peak season. Thank you!**********

Why Becky Grafer chose Naples

The opportunity to own a single family home in a non-HOA area this close to downtown was too amazing to pass up! We enjoy sharing this special place with our guests and that includes the 4-legged ones too. :-)

What makes this house unique

Becky and her husband Scott are local and manage the cottage themselves. You will see the care they put into all the details upon your arrival. They are also available on-site quickly in the event that you need assistance with anything.

Very nice, comfortable place to stay and very close to downtown and the beach!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was a great place to stay during our spring break trip! It’s in a great area perfect for running/walking. The street is very quiet and we felt very comfortable. The owners were in great communication with us as well. We loved how close we were to 5th Ave., Tin City, and the beach!

Owner's Response: Wow! Sorry you found it pricey! The cottage is actually about the cheapest option around for visiting Naples for a week during peak season. $1200 + 11% lodging tax for 7 nights - with cleaning included before and after the stay. If guests are looking for warm weather Jan-March without a specific need to be in Naples near 5th Ave, there are definitely lots of lower-priced accommodations available just slightly to the north in the Fort Myers/Cape Coral area. :-)

What a Wonderful Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a fabulous week at this lovely cottage. Everything about the place was just perfect. It was spotlessly clean with lots of room and all the amenities required to make our stay comfortable. In such close proximity to so many fun things to do / visit / dine ... we’ll be sure to return again next year!

I can't say enough about our wonderful host Becky. She truly goes above and beyond to make sure your stay is one that leaves you yearning for more and looking for the next opportunity to come back. She provides you with everything you could possibly need and even has special touches and treats waiting for you upon your arrival. No reason to look any further than Smuggler's Cove, it's simply the perfect place to stay!

The owners thought of EVERYTHING! My husband and I rent using VRBO often. This was the best pick by far! The price for the location was fabulous! The cottage is adorable and so comfortable. Becky had welcome gifts for us that were so thoughtful!! If I could stay longer I would have! We will be back for sure!

Immaculate, Super Clean & Cozy Cottage in Naples!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at the cottage several weeks each of the past two winter seasons, and having rented many homes in various locations over the years, found this to be the best one of all. While I have a dog and being a pet owner, this was a huge plus for renting this home, I found the home very clean and you would never know they allow pets, a huge win when looking for pet friendly rentals. The home owners are the best and take great pride in cleaning the home, always arriving to find it immaculately clean and inviting for each and every stay and I was a guest in the home a total of 7 different rental weeks over the past 2 seasons.

The home itself is bright and modern, with hardwood floors throughout and with two very nice and recently updated bathrooms, the master featuring a large walk-in shower and the guest with a standard tub/shower.

The A/C works great although you won't need it often as the home always has a nice cool breeze flowing through it, being so close to the Gulf of Mexico coastline.

Walking distance (about 20 minutes) to all of the best restaurants Naples has to offer along it's famed 5th Avenue, or you can hop on the two bikes provided and you are just a couple of minutes away from the beach for the amazing sunsets the West Coast of Florida has to offer. This is by far a great value for all that you get and in the location the house is situated.

Also, you will always be welcomed with some nice "treats" upon your arrival, making you visit special and unique from the very moment you step foot inside this spacious and welcoming Naples, FL cottage.
