  • Winter get away

    "Fantastic rental. My wife and I spent the month of January at Andrew’s home and had a great experience. The home is well equipment and the location can’t be beat. A short drive to Marco Island or to downtown Naples. The Players Club has everything you could ask for. The hot tub was a great way to relax after a day on the links. It was everything we hoped for and more. Thanks Andrew!!"

  • Perfect family vacation!

    "This house was very much what we were looking for and what we needed!!! We stayed with 6 adults and 2 babies (6 months and 16 months) and everyone fully enjoyed the stay. The pool was perfect, all the beach accessories were a huge advantage, the house itself was more than accommodating and the location could not have been better."

  • Warm Winter Rest

    "We spent 10 weeks here (January through mid-March) and really enjoyed it. The house was perfect, nicely appointed, and the outside lanai / pool was used continuously. The owner is great to work with, and very, very helpful - she helped us arrange for cleaning services, and guided us how to upgrade the cable service for our stay so we wouldn't miss our favorite cable shows on AMC, HBO, or Showtime. Our dog loved the enclosed backyard. The house provides all beach gear (chairs, floats, boogie boards, noodles), a Florida State Park pass so you could visit Delnor Wiggins beach park (3/4 of a mile by foot, bike, or car) or nearby Lovers Key, and two bicycles to use when the Wiggins parking lot is full. We used the outdoor grill frequently, and loved having a garage door opener and garage for our car. The WiFi was fast, and convenient. Aside from visiting the local beaches and spending time on the home's lanai, we attended several performances at Artis Naples (recommendation - look and book early!), played lots of golf, and shopped for local real estate. This location is perfect for visiting anywhere from Fort Myers to Naples (and even Marco Island) Miami and Fort Lauderdale are a just two hour drive across Alligator Alley from here, and the Everglades are closer. You're close to shopping (from elegant Coconut Point and Mercado and Naples itself, to the outlet mall at Miramar, about 20 minutes north of here. One mile from a Publix grocery store and ABC liqour store (at Tamiani Trail and Immolakee). Lots of great restaurants, but if you are here during January through March, you'll need reservations almost anywhere due to the flood of seasonal visitors. All in all, we loved it. Especially when we checked the weather reports back home in Michigan. You can get some "cold snaps" down here (occasional lows in the 40s, highs in the low 60's), but most of the time January through March it stayed in the low 60's at night and the high 70's during the day - with mostly sun even when it was cool."

  • Little Gem near Vanderbilt

    "We really enjoyed our two weeks here. The house comes well equipped for a vacation near the beach. The bike that come with the house allowed a 5 minute bike ride to lovely Vanderbilt Beach. The beach chairs, cooler and towels made a day at the beach easy to enjoy. The kitchen is really nice with top end appliances and the outdoor grill allows for a nice dinner at the end of the day. I really enjoyed the pool. It was nice to come home after a round of golf, take a dip and relax next to the pool with a glass of wine. The house is also very centrally located to many of Naples attractions. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone."

Naples Travel Tips

Naples often brings to mind high-end shopping and world-class culture for travelers, but this family-friendly destination draws in thousands of nature and beach lovers each year. Plus, the area's desirable climate means there's never a bad time to visit.

Naples' history dates back to the late 1860s when Roger Gordon and Joe Wiggins arrived. Then, in 1887, Walter Haldeman and his associates purchased the town and began turning it into the Naples we know today. Celebrities including Thomas Edison, Harvey Firestone and Gary Cooper all made a visit here, so this place has been attracting visitors for some time. You'll see the city's preservation of its past and the steps Naples locals are taking to keep it a top vacation destination for many years to come.

Naples Activities and Attractions

The city's location on the Gulf of Mexico means it offers plenty of beach access. There are 22 access areas in the Naples area which means you're guaranteed to find a relaxing place everyone in the family can enjoy. Whether you want to build sand castles, go for a swim or try out a new water sport, Naples is the place to do it. Some popular spots for a little fun in the sun include Parkshore Beach, Hideaway Beach, Naples Pier, Sanibel Causeway Beach and Lynn Hall Memorial Park.

Naples is also in close proximity to the Florida Everglades and Ten Thousand Islands National Wildlife Refuge. Everglades National Park is the largest subtropical wilderness in the U.S. and protects the habitat of thousands of endangered animals including manatees, crocodiles and panthers. Ten Thousand Islands is also a national park and a nursery ground for a number of marine species. Visiting Ten Thousand Islands means you can explore places such as Turner River, Sandfly Island or Halfway Creek.

The Naples Zoo and Caribbean Gardens is the perfect place to take the kids during your stay. A ticket to the zoo includes a primate expedition cruise, Meet the Keeper series, Alligator Bay hand-feeding fun, all animal exhibits, Safari Canyon Theater Shows and the historic tropical garden. Animals at the zoo include lions, kangaroos and monkeys as well as more rare creatures such as the Asian deer that barks and eats meat.

You'll want to visit historic downtown Naples during your vacation. Winter visitors first started to flood the area in the 1930s at Fifth Avenue. When the city was in its early beginnings, there were only a few businesses downtown at the junction known as Four Corners. The occasional car would pass by and the train depot was built just a block away. As more visitors stopped in the city, it blossomed and the residents of Naples wanted to preserve the past so future generations could see where it all started.

Things to Do in Naples

Shopping: Naples is well known as a shopping destination and something you'll have to experience for yourself before you leave. The top spots in the city are located along Fifth Avenue South and Third Street South. Some of the stores you'll find on Fifth Avenue include Back of the Bay Boutique, The Wind in the Willows, Kay's on the Beach, Julie's of Naples and Island Trends. Third Street South has been a shopping mecca since the 1930s. In this historic part of the city there are stores selling apparel, art and antiques.

Dining: There are restaurants, cafes and bistros throughout the city that will satisfy whatever type of food you're craving. Third Street South and Fifth Street South remain the hot spots for dining locations but don't be afraid to check out some stops off the beaten path. When you meander down Third Street, visit places such as Handsome Harry's, Sea Salt and Jane's Cafe. Restaurants and cafes on Fifth Street include Bistro 821, Chops City Grill and Altin's Cafe and Grill.

Golfing: The Naples area is known as the "Golf Capital of the World," due to the more than 80 championship golf courses that are found here - obviously, you will have to problem working on your swing or finding a fairway. There are more holes per capita in Naples than in any other community, so don't forget to bring your clubs. There are a number of public access golf clubs and courses including High Point, Panther Run, Rivera, Vanderbilt, Links of Naples, Golden Gate and Cypress Woods.

Historic Sites: Among the various historic sites in the Naples area is the Naples Seaboard Air Line Railway Station. This depot is located off Fifth Avenue South and was constructed in 1927. The Collier County Museum restored it as the Naples Depot Museum and features railroads, dugout canoes and a swamp buggy. You can visit the Naples Historical Society's Historic Palm Cottage, the former summer home of Naples founder Watler Haldeman.
