About Allison Evans, DeLong Real Estate Team

I'm a local Neapolitan for over 25 years now and feel blessed to be able to enjoy this beautiful town year-round. I personally manage numerous vacation properties in the North Naples, Naples Park community and am also a licensed Realtor in the area. I love being able to provide excellent local service and contact to all of my properties as well help my guests to have the best possible vacation they can here in Naples! If you need anything, including recommendations on dinner or local hot spots, I'm just a call/message away!

Allison Evans, DeLong Real Estate Team purchased this house in 2012

Why Allison Evans, DeLong Real Estate Team chose Vanderbilt Beach

You can't beat the location of this house! You're right in the heart of all that Naples has to offer. We love to walk and bike ride and the location absolutely lends itself to such. If you're feeling like a drink, you can take 10-15 minute walk (3 minute drive or bike ride) to one of many bars, Blue Martini Lounge, Taps (for craft beer), Burn by Rocky Patel(cigar bar) or The Pub to name a few. If you're hungry, hit Rib City for local BBQ. They're a local legend for their 50 cent beer on Wednesday nights!)The Capital Grill, Bravo, McCormick & Schmicks, etc. are all less than a 15 minute walk away. Take a 10 minute walk to breakfast and enjoy Joe's Diner (a local hotspot). Or if you want to venture out for a 6 minute bike ride, head to Randy's Fishmarket for lunch (which is famous for their Key Lime Pie-they ship to all 50 states!) Salsa Brava Mexican Grill, Sushi Thai, and Vesuvio's Pizza are all just 6 minute bike ride from the house as well!

A must do while in town is to head across the street (15 minute walk) to check out the new hotspot, The Mercato, with numerous shops, restaurants, bars, Whole Foods grocery, and Silverspot (an upscale movie theater with recliner-type seats, dining and drinks). Sunset is a nightly tradition for locals and we all gather around to try to catch a glimpse of the rare "green flash." Check out the sugar sand beaches! Vanderbilt Beach & the Ritz Carlton are less than a 5 minute bike ride away, and Wiggins Pass State Park Beach (one of Florida's top 10 beaches as rated on the Travel Channel) is only a 10 minute bike ride. Use the provided park pass for free entrance!

If you're looking for a 25 minute scenic drive up the coast, check out Lover's Key State Park beach (which is midway between Bonita Springs Barefoot Beach and Fort Myers Beach). For some Old Naples charm, head south 15 minutes to 5th Ave or 3rd St. for shops, art galleries, restaurants, bars, and live theater. Welcome to the Neapolitan lifestyle!

What makes this house unique

This home is perfect for outdoor living and vacationing! The private heated pool and patio are excellent for soaking up sun and enjoying our beautiful weather! The old real estate saying, "Location, Location, Location" is truly correct with this home. The location is unbeatable, a 10 minute walk to numerous restaurants & a 5 minute bike ride to gorgeous beaches. There is top rated dining at the Mercato (a 5 minute bike ride away) and they feature lovely outdoor eating and happy hours galore. The house itself is bright and airy, lending itself to the feel of vacation every time you walk through the door.

Nice house but the pool very cold

  • 3 of 5

We liked the house (nice and clean) and it's location. We were provided with baby stuff (crib, high chair - as requested, and additionally blankets and waterproof pads). It's a bit far from the beach so we drove there (20-25 minute walk without kids). The pool was very cold. We have little kids so it was a bit cold for them (and us!). We asked to have the temperature raised and after a few days and long dialogues it was raised. However, someone came over to our house afterwards and lowered the temperature without telling us! We have pictures! It didn't feel right and seemed like our privacy was violated. We love swimming and the pool was the reason we rented the house. It was disappointing that most of the time we just looked at it and were forced to go to our family or friends' pools since their pools were much warmer and their renters let them raise the temperature no problem. Also, there were no Kleenex or hand soap when we arrived so we had to go a store first thing next morning to get the basics! Again, our family members at their houses were provided with all essentials no problem. After a few days of dialogue and message exchanges the agent brought one Kleenex and garbage bags for us. Seemed like unnecessary try to save a little money on the basic stuf and pool temperature (we asked for it to be raised two degrees). Otherwise good stay but be prepared to buy a soap right away or pack your own!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. I would like to touch on a few things mentioned so that future guests may have more clarity. The guests requested a crib & high chair for their stay, which I happily obliged, and purchased brand new blankets, crib sheets, and toys for them to use during their stay. These guests arrived early and phoned me to ask to check in early, I also happily obliged and immediately met them at the house to let them in early. As for being far from the beach, we are exactly 1 mile to Vanderbilt Beach and walking/biking times will vary based upon individuals. We do not charge extra for heating the pool like many other vacation homes do during the cold months, and we keep the pool temperature set in the 80's for guests. I was contacted by the guests and was asked to raise the temperature of the pool as it was too cold for them. The day they contacted me we were experiencing a very cold snap of weather, with our daily highs in the 40's. I explained that I was happy to raise the temperature, but with the weather being so cold it would not be practical nor possible to raise the pool heater higher until it was warmer. They also mentioned that there was no hand soap, tissues, or garbage bags. I personally checked the house prior to their arrival and noted that their was a full supply of hand soap, toilet paper, garbage bags, paper towels, laundry soap, etc. I told them we don't normally provide Kleenex, but that I would be happy to drop off a box as well as extra soap & garbage bags if they felt they needed them. I did so the same day. After a few days when things warmed, up I stopped over once more to adjust the pool temperature higher, into the 90's. Later I was contacted by the guest again stating the pool was still too cold. I went by the house to check the pool temperature, which was at 91 degrees. I'm not sure why they felt this was too cold. Perhaps it was due to the 50 degree air temperature, which was undoubtedly simply beyond my control. We ran the pool at 91 degrees for the duration of the rest of their stay so I'm not sure who they think lowered it. Once they checked out, I stopped over to check the pool temperature and it was still at 91 degrees. Perhaps they mistook the pool cleaners for someone else. Undoubtedly, we want guests to enjoy their stay and I tried to do everything possible to ensure these guests were happy. Please see our other reviews for a representation of how other guests describe the house and their experience.

Wonderful house

  • 4 of 5

We were so happy to enjoy this lovely home.

All of the amenities were perfect and we LOVED being so close to the beach. But also the pool area was so wonderful. And we enjoyed the bikes. What a treat! Thank you Allison for making everything so

special by including the wine, chocolate & flowers.

Had the best vacation at this house!

  • 5 of 5

I searched around Naples for a place that would be perfect for my family of 4. We have 2 little kids age 8 and 20 months so I really wanted a place that would be fun and relaxing. Well, this place was just perfect. The ease of renting the unit, and Allison being so kind, leaving us some goodies when we arrived, and to us checking in, it was great. The house is fully stocked and was so clean! We stayed over Thanksgiving break so I was in charge of making some food to bring to family. The kitchen had everything in it. There were also 4 bikes for us to go for a bike ride on(we brought our little bike seat for the baby). The beach only took minutes to get to by bike and has the best sunset to watch! Plenty of restaurants and Whole Foods just a eyeshot away. We had an amazing vacation and this place was perfect. Cant wait to return...Thanks Allison!

Property Good - VRBO poor

  • 4 of 5

The house and service by local agent was good but VRBO did not give good service even though they charge a "service fee" on top of the rental charge. Their system is inflexible and cannot deal with changing situations. We do not recommend and will not use VRBO / HomeAway again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review Tony. I'm so glad that you enjoyed the house and the service that I provide to our guests. It's unfortunate that you had difficulty with the VRBO platform. Hope that they were able to sort our what happened and that next time you have a smooth encounter when using VRBO!
