About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

The Dunes is located in exclusive Naples, Florida. These luxurious condos are located on the protected turtle preserve of Wiggins Pass State Park, which is rated as one of the top ten beaches in the whole United States. The location just can't be beat. Whether you want to stay on property and enjoy all The Dunes has to offer, or venture out, everything you need and want is within a short walk or drive. Our unit is located in the closest building to the beach walk. Just walk through the gate at the bottom of the building and you're on your way to the beach and whatever beauty if offers on that particular day.

Our particular condo is located on the 9th floor with the preferred 04 floor plan unit. Enjoy sweeping views of the Gulf of Mexico from north to south from the kitchen, living room and master bedroom as well as the large, fully private lanai with comfortable outdoor living room furniture and counter height dining table. Sunsets are amazing from this unit.

The decor is not your typical southwest Florida decor. This professionally decorated floor plan has sleek lines with custom built entertainment and master bedroom cabinetry. It's elegant and minimalist appearance lends itself to comfort, warmth and cleanliness. The splashes of color add elegance and fun and remind you that you are in paradise! We fully equip our condo with everything you need to have a stress free vacation. We have premium linens, new towels every year, nice dinnerware and glasses & a fully stocked kitchen. We go the extra step to offer you a truly luxurious experience.

The Dunes offers private dining for lunch and dinner, superior tennis and exercise facilities, and a one-of-a-kind tropical lagoon like pool and spa services by appointment. The amenities and location of The Dunes Resort set this community apart from the rest. Located minutes from the beach and just a mile up the beach from the world-famous Ritz Carlton, The Dunes boasts a premier location in North Naples.

About Shannon Bates

My husband is a marketing director for a Fortune 100 Company. I am a registered nurse, specializing in neonatal intensive care as well as a published children's book author. We're both former college athletes so we love the tennis and gym facilities. We've been looking for properties for over 5 years in the Colorado ski resort towns until a visit to a friends wedding here in 2008. At that point, we fell in love with Naples and the beautiful, calm blue waters and the white sandy beaches. Did I mention the Dolphins? We then geared our search towards Naples and settled definitively on The Dunes. We love the property and it's amenities. We chose the closest building to the beach which also happens to be a quick walk across the small parking lot to the resort pool, gym, tennis courts, restaurant and our favorite, the poolside tiki bar! Everything is so convenient from the Dunes. Our view is spectacular and we can't seem to stop taking pictures every day! Definitely a change from the Overland Park KS home we reside in full time .

Why Shannon Bates chose Naples

We bought in Naples because of it's close proximity to the airport- 30 minutes-and of course the beauty of the area. We love the calm, blue waters and the white sand beaches. We love our home because of the full gulf views that stretch from south to north and are visible from our large living room wall of windows and the extra large window in the master bedroom. Cooking in the kitchen is not so bad with a view like ours! PICTURES DO NOT DO JUSTICE TO THE SWEEPING GULF VIEW!

What makes this condo unique

Things we love about the Dunes: The short walk to the beach-we sometimes walk down several times in one day. The private building pool with showers and bathrooms-very private. The resort style pool with waterfalls and mini grottos with benches to sit behind the waterfall and enjoy our cool drink from the tiki bar. The gym's top notch equipment. The tennis facility is amazing with pro shop and instructors.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Heidi said "My family & I had a wonderful time vacationing at the Dunes Condo. Awesome views, luxurious interior, & everything necessary to cook a grommet meal. I have vacationed in Naples for many years, and this condo was exquisite! It was also a pleasure corresponding with Shannon who was very helpful in making sure our stay was comfortable and enjoyable! From my 80yr old mother to my 8yr old grand nephew, we are already looking forward to next year!"

Happy Times

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have spent very many happy hours at The Dunes 904 Antigua sometimes with family and friends joining us over the years. I would like to express our sincere appreciation to the owners for looking after us so very well and for being so wonderfully kind and thoughtful.

Their condominium offers complete luxury accommodation and is always maintained in a superb condition - with touches of warmth and kindness and stocked to perfection.

The large terrace with an outstanding captivating view usable all day until late into the evenings is our favorite spot.

We highly recommend this comfortable condominium in a complex full of amenities, total privacy and great security.

At the first opportunity we plan to return.

a beautiful exquisitely furnished condo in the luxurious Dunes, with everything on the doorstep!

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from two fabulous weeks at The Dunes - and this condo is just amazing - best we've stayed in yet!. Designer decorated throughout - a really spacious, cool, light and airy condo - with amazing views over to the ocean from the balcony. Being on 9th floor gives a birds eye view. The condo is beautifully equipped - its hard to think of any way to improve it! Everything really of the highest quality. The condo is located within the very grand and luxurious Dunes estate - the building has its own pool, and there is a fantastic much larger pool area with bar just a few steps away. Vanderbilt beach itself is only a 5 minute walk. All the usual restaurants and fab shops very close too and historic down town Naples just a few mins drive.

Randy and Shannon Bates who own the condo have been incredibly easy and helpful to deal with - everything went very smoothly and nothing was too much trouble.

We are a family of 4 with two teenagers - and they absolutely loved it. We would love to return!

Highly highly recommend staying here.
