Property description

Every Day A Beach Day

Listen to the gentle surf, take in the panoramic beach and ocean views and devour exquisite romantic sunsets at SeaChase, the Jewel of Naples/Vanderbilt Beach - for those who insist on only the best! Truly, a sun, cultural, golf and surf Mecca that attracts people the world over. This completely renovated (2014) elegant but casual 'cottage condo' is situated on the same beach between the Naples Ritz Carlton and the La Playa world-class hotels, each just a short beach stroll away. Come and collect shells and gather memories.

We just completed a major upgrade. We replaced all the wooden floors and tile throughout and completely re-did the 2 bathrooms including new showers, glass shower doors. The new wooden flooring style is called “Beach”! Finally, the condo has been completely repainted. We usually do a major project per year. Last year it was all new “sand” granite counter tops throughout. This year we did not take any reservations for 3 months and did a lot more.

Naples Tops Travel Channel’s Best Beach List

We’re already well known for World Class Golf and World Class Shopping, but now its official! The Travel Channel recently has named Naples: America’s Best All Around Beach! Travel writers from Conde Nast, Fodor’s and USA Today all contributed their input to come up with the final list. We beat out Hawaii, the Florida Keys, the Virgin Islands, and Florida’s Atlantic coast.

Smithsonian Magazine Names Naples One of the Top 10 Best Small Towns in America - May 2012

Coastal Living Magazine named Naples America's 2nd Most Happy Seaside Town - June 2012. And yes, Naples was the only Florida location to make the Top 10 list.

Vitamin Sea: Where Life’s Rewards Comes In Waves!

If You’re Lucky Enough To Stay On The Beach – You're Lucky Enough! SeaChase features 300 feet of sugar sand beach frontage, a gated community and a secured lobby. The beach always has ample room for our guests! A heated, low-intensity, gulf side swimming pool and covered parking are two of many amenities. Current SeaChase building condo values range from $1,200,000 to $4,000,000+ $$USD. This 1500 square-foot, two-bedroom/two-full-bath Beach House has a screened-in lanai, master bedroom with a king-size bed and a master bath that all overlook the ocean. The master bath boasts an oversize bathtub, a separate walk-in shower, and an extra-large closet with dressing area. The second spacious bedroom contains twin beds with a separate full bath. Each bedroom has its own 32” flat screen TV. This non-smoking unit was the showplace property when SeaChase was initially sold in 1996. Seas the Day...and the night!

At Vanderbilt Beach, You'll Forget What Day It Is!

SW Florida is also known as the Paradise Coast! Come and experience day after day of 'Another Day in Paradise!'

The Five Star Alternative – Think Outside The Box!
A Wall Street Journal article recently queried: 'Are you tired of five-star hotels charging too much for too little? Overpaying for a vacation is not a status symbol.'
Treat yourself to this luxurious romantic ocean front condo if you desire the equivalent of an extended stay at the Ritz Carlton or LaPlaya but with much more room and privacy at prices that will leave you with money to spoil yourself! Our rates are generally 50% less than compared to a single room at The Ritz Carlton with 4 times more space. Check out the Ritz Carlton alternative. Say Goodbye Hotel and Hello Relaxation.
We never met a 5 star hotel room that we still loved after a week or so. Think outside the BOX! And yes, for those of us that still need your 'Carlton Fix' - help yourself to all the Ritz amenities - just steps away - right on our same beach.
This distinctive property includes many upgrades plus an open kitchen, great room, and dining room area. This newly renovated Beach House contains a fully equipped kitchen. The great room boasts an entertainment center with a 50” flat screen Wi-Fi connected SmartTV, VCR/DVD, and Bose stereo/CD player. All rooms are direct view ocean front, except the second bedroom/bath.

Beware of Condo Flippers Who Flopped!
Know what you are paying for and getting! This condo has served as the owners second home since 1999. This is very significant as our condo is as well-appointed and meticulously kept as our primary residence waterfront home. Beware of “luxury condo” money machines that are in a million dollar location, although furnished by 2nd hand furniture and very run down since the owner never occupies the unit. Insist on knowing this information, checking references and seeing current pictures before finalizing a condo rental decision. Email us for our 60-picture web link that clearly shows the quality of this condo, the outside building, pool, beach and ocean views.

What To Expect
This condo is not another “average high end rental” money machine. It is our second home and that is how we welcome you – as a guest in a home that we love, and that we’re proud of and eager for you to love too! We want you to feel special when you are staying at our little piece of paradise. We want you to expect that everything has been taken care of so that you feel welcomed, relaxed and most comfortable. We want to impress you and have you become one of our regular return parties that love and becomes personally attached to this little piece of paradise. We want you to be happy Guests … Not Renters.

Your Sound Is Our Sound
Listen to music wirelessly from your computer or Bluetooth® device through our SmartTV or Bose Sound stereo music system with SoundLink. Bring your phone, tablet, laptop or I-Pod with your favorite music and we’ll do the rest. Of course, you can bring your own CDs or use ours as well.

Welcome to a place that exceeds expectations that you didn’t even know you had! Surf On Over!
Do you owe it to yourselves to experience only the best? Are you ready for your life’s rewards to come in waves? Comfort but luxury? Are you a person who can truly appreciate a Ritz Carlton, LaPlaya or Four Seasons vacation? Come stay at the SeaChase unit that other owners who rent try to imitate!

VRBO will guarantee your rental payment up to $10,000.
Cancellation Policy
100% credit toward mutually agreed upon future rental with 45 days’ notice; or, if less than 45 days, if property is successfully re-rented.
