About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Beautifully renovated beach cottage with marble and granite throughout. very clean,and has everything you need for a wonderful vacation. If you are interested in entertaining, there is a large wet bar with a refrigerator on the back lanai. It is a great area for having friends over for a BBQ, listening to some music, or watching the game on the TV. More interested in relaxing, nothing better than putting in a movie on one of the 2 flat screen TV's in the home and just relaxing peacefully in your own space. There is also an office in the house, so if it is a working vacation, this space is an excellent addition and somewhat private from the rest of house.

The beach is about a 10 minute walk to either Vanderbilt or Delanor Wiggins State Park. The most beautiful West Coast Sunsets in Florida!! We have coolers, bikes and beach chairs at the house for your use. Morning strolls are highly recommended, a must. The earlier the better. Make some coffee and get some fresh air.

Shopping and dining start about 1 mile from my home and is endless. The new ' Mercato Shops' are the new 'HOT' spot in town and have a little bit of everything, such as , dine in movie theatre, an English Pub, AZN sushi, Blue Martini ( hottest happy hour in town), coffee shops , book stores , upscale boutiques and much much more.( about 1.5 miles) Then, just south of here is Waterside Shops. The best high end shopping in South Florida. The classic 5th Ave. is just a cruise away ( about 8 miles) to the best dining in the area and just around the corner from there is Tin City on Naples Bay for more shopping and Fun.

About Brandi Ickes

I have been coming to Naples since I was born. I am from the mid west and now I have called Naples home for more than 20 years. I live locally most of the year, so I know the in's and out's of Naples and am available for questions and advice on exploring my city! Need help with recommendations for restaurants, outings, shopping etc... give me a call...

Brandi Ickes purchased this house in 2004

Why Brandi Ickes chose Vanderbilt Beach

The location is Great. Close to the beach and the neighborhood has all walks of life. Very friendly people with laid back attitudes.

What makes this house unique

Waking up in the morning, making a cup of coffee and sitting on the back lanai waiting for the sun to come up...long beach walks... I made it extremely cozy so it is a calm and relaxing space. At the same time, you can open the doors to the back lanai and have nice large living space to entertain friends and family. Amazing shopping, resturants and entertainment within 2 miles of my home. It is one of the hottest area in Naples currently.

Clean, lush, fantastic

  • 5 of 5

The only thing that could have made it better was a longer stay! The place was beautiful. Convenient to beach, shopping and dining. Absolutely lovely.

This is a well-equipped home that is well kept and comfortable. Vanderbilt Beach is close by.

  • 4 of 5

The kitchen has lots of dishes, cutlery and pots. For condiments, there was only salt and pepper so although advertised to replace anything we used, there was nothing to replace in the kitchen. The bathrooms had shampoos and soaps available. There were ample beach towels as well as bathroom towels. We appreciated the beach towels, beach chairs, coolers and umbrella and enjoyed the Vanderbilt Beach which was about 8 minutes away by car but too far to walk carrying the beach supplies.

The owner was available for questions regarding the area and also supplied us with a second bike that we requested. We had dinner one evening at the Red Robin close by and shopped at the nearby Wall-Mart for a few groceries. We would recommend this location to friends and family as we felt very comfortable in this well cared for home.

Home away from home in Naples

  • 4 of 5

Overall very clean, comfortable, and updated accommodations. Loved the convenience of washer/dryer. Home is a short drive from beach and shopping. En-suite bathroom quite small, and the queen mattress was not great. The room with king bed has TV and large bathroom across hall. Would book this rental again!

Great place. Great location. Walk to the beach. Will stay again!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved the stay! Perfect place in perfect location. House was spacious and had beautiful back porch with a bar and plenty of seating. Master had a walk-in closet too. Walking distance to Vanderbilt Public beach access. Owners bikes in good condition and can get to the beach in like 5 mins by bike. Great for 2 seperate adults or 2 couples. Office area was a plus too. Short 15 minute drive to downtown Naples. Plenty of great places to eat within 5 miles. We will definitely rent again next winter.
