About Lisa Lacci

We have been original owners and loving caretakers of Condo #703-A at Vanderbilt Landings in Vanderbilt Beach/Naples since 1989. We purchased the condo with our parents as a “second home” that would serve as a beautiful getaway location for our family to meet on vacations or for special occasions as our family is spread throughout various locations across the country. We still frequently visit our vacation “home” and we keep it in excellent shape for our own enjoyment and that of renters. We now have had four generations of family and friends enjoy staying at our “home-away-from-home” and look forward to spending many more good times there!

Lisa Lacci purchased this condo in 1989

Why Lisa Lacci chose Vanderbilt Beach

We specifically chose this condo because of its amazing location across the street from the Gulf of Mexico, our condo’s beautiful Gulf view, and the lovely heated pool area and TIKI Hut (with gas grills) picnic area that border the bay behind the condo. We love waking up early and having breakfast at the table on the lanai which overlooks Delnor-Wiggins State Park and the Gulf and taking a walk to the nearby La Playa Hotel to pick up a paper, have a cup of coffee, and check out the scenery. Later in the day, we often head outside to swim laps at the pool, read a book at the pool or beach, or walk along the Gulf shoreline searching for seashells and trying to spot the dolphins that come within eyesight of the coast. At sunset, we frequently walk back across the street-with some refreshments- to sample the beautiful sunsets for which the West Coast of Florida is renowned. The condo is within a 10 minute drive of the new Mercato Shopping Plaza Center and Waterside Shops, both of which are well-known for their “high-end” shopping and restaurant venues. For those of you looking for some “culture” or entertainment while on vacation, our condo is also close by to the Naples Philharmonic Center for the Arts, which offers museum tours, classical symphony performances, Broadway shows, Jazz performances, etc. throughout the year.

What makes this condo unique

In addition to its amazing location and beautiful view of the Gulf, our condo is uniquely “couple” and family-friendly – whether your planned trip is a “solo getaway” for you and a spouse or significant other, a family gathering with all of the kids (or grandkids!), or a restful get-together with good friends. The condo has two bedrooms plus a den with sleeping accommodations. We have one King size bed, two Twin size beds, one queen pull-out couch in the living room and one full pull-out couch in a den. We recently updated the condo with new flooring and new paint throughout all the rooms, new lighting in the kitchen, updated appliances, refinished cabinets, a new master bath vanity with double sinks, new second bathroom vanity and flooring, new mattresses in both bedrooms, new Pottery Barn linens and pillows on the beds and sofas, and new towels and rugs in both bathrooms. Our condo is baby/child-ready; equipped with a pack ‘n play (including a newborn sleeper) and a high-chair. Finally, we have stocked the condo with all beach and pool essentials that you and your family will need to enjoy the beautiful Vanderbilt Beach/Naples weather. We have lots of beach towels, some beach chairs, cups to fill with your favorite cold beverage and even a “Wonder Wheeler,” a rolling cart on which you can stack your beach chairs and stock with all your goods and easily roll over to the beach just across the street via our condo’s paved, private beach access pathway.

We hope that you love our condo as much as we do and that you (like many of our 'repeat' renters) decide to make our condo your own “home-away-from-home” year after year.

The complex is conveniently located to many Naples attractions and is a short walk to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

The owners are wonderful to work with. I met this family purely by luck and I couldn't be more thankful. The gated condo is across the street from the beach and you can utilize a private beach entrance. Even though there are high rise buildings across the street you stil have a decent setting at sunset. The complex is wonderfully maintained. Heated pool with a nice size pool deck and amenities (chairs, tables, some toys, restroom facilities and an outside shower), tennis and bocce courts also. The owners supply good cooking equipment, wifi, nice televisions and very comfortable furnishings.

Spacious, convenient and beautiful beaches!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was well appointed and included everything we needed for our stay (towels, hangers, dinnerware, etc.). The view from the porch was incredible and the condo was very spacious! The owners response time is fast and she was very accomodating. You will also have access to the most beautiful stretch of beach in Vanderbilt! Thank you so much! It was a pleasure renting this condo from you!

Perfect for family!

  • 5 of 5

I rarely write reviews - as no news is good news for us. However, since we travel to Naples annually to see my parents we have now found our forever rental. It was so perfect for us! It was very nice and comfortable. Nice enough to be comfortable and enjoyable but not so over- decorated that we had to pack up half the house to baby proof. In fact, we didn't have to do anything and our two year old was able to roam freely. He spent all his time out on the lanai and it made our time so easy. It was such a short walk to the beach that my husband could go wear out the toddler while I stayed back with the infant.

My parents came over and we were able to easily wheel in Dad's wheelchair -- and we grilled dinner down at the tiki huts.

Finally, although I prefer the simplicity of the decor etc, the bedding and linens were high-end and very comfortable.

It was just great and my family and my siblings and their families will be staying here every time.
