NOTE! Booking for 2018 with a Two (2) Month MINIMUM: January 15 - March15, 2018. Occupancy is limited to two adults, (with only occasional overnight visitors please.) This spectacularly-located condo has a wonderful view - all the way down the Beach to the Naples Pier. The condo also overlooks The Moorings Private Park next door. Our apartment appears to be the ONLY ONE immediately ON the beach- not on an upper floor but situated ON the beach, with a few steps down to the lawn, beach, and the Club's excellent heated lap-pool. This tastefully decorated non-smoking apartment includes antiques, oriental rugs, and hardwood floors. A charming small balcony lends itself to morning coffee or taking in a sunset. Sitting in the mirrored living room, surrounded by windows looking out onto the Gulf, gives the feeling of being on a cruise ship! (Sq.F. 1284)
Located in the exclusive Royal Palm Club on Gulf Shore Boulevard, this truly lovely, but small, apartment has been completely renovated with the afore-mentioned hardwood floors throughout; an electric 'fireplace' for those brisk evenings; granite counters in the gourmet kitchen and bathrooms; walk-in shower and bidet in the master bath; small walk-in closet off the Master Bedroom (storage space is miniscule!); 'announcing' answering phones, and Wireless hookup for your computer with an Canon printer for your use. Rosa, the weekly cleaning 'genie' is included in your rental, as well as: linens, all cooking utensils, books, videos, DVD/VCR, Cable TV, assigned covered parking spot, beach chairs, beach towels, fishing rods, 2 pair of roller-blades, and a new bike available for your use. Juan Munoz, our most helpful building manager is on site Monday-Friday, from 7am-3pm. The apartment complex has restricted, secure entrance.
Should you choose to forgo cooking, 3 doors down from The Royal Palm Club is The Edgewater Beach Hotel ($380-$700, per day, now affiliated with the Waldorf Astoria) has opened its dining room to the public for breakfast, lunch by the pool, or dinner. Or if you'd really like to splurge - a temporary social membership to The Moorings Golf Club nearby, with its reknowned chef - allows you to dine there as well as attend the regularly scheduled dances in Season.
If fishing is your passion the rocky jetty, extending out into the Gulf just adjacent to the apartment, is a convenient and fruitful place to fish. However, if you mosey on down to The Naples Pier, no fishing licenses are required, because the City of Naples maintains one for visitors who fish from the Pier.
Our apartment is several blocks north of landmark Naples Beach Hotel and Golf Club, (est. 1930), with its' tennis courts, golf course, Fitness and Spa Center, as well as excellent restaurants including HB's - one of the few restaurants in Naples located on the beach- and where you can rent sailboats, wind-surfers, surfboards, kayaks, and jet-skis (instructions available should you want to tune up your skills).
Although we do not rent to families with children, if you would like to be able to have friends with children down to visit, The Beach Hotel and Golf Club is a perfect place for kids. Another option for families with children is the Best Western just off Mooring Line Drive and #41. The Moorings Private Park next door to the Club is a perfect place to picnic with visiting children: there are sculptures to climb on, Tiki Huts for shade, and of course a wonderful Private Beach. Also close by is Naples Zoo. And if you happen to be awake at 3AM, and the wind is right, you might even hear the lions' roar/cough!
Farther down Gulf Shore Boulevard, on Fifth Avenue are many shops and galleries, and excellent restaurants, as well as the popular Sugden Theater. In Olde Naples, on down 3rd Street to Broad Avenue, are a collection of wonderful clothing stores including The Beachhouse for bathing suits, and Marissa Collections, a world-famous fashion house featuring top designers, such as Valentino, Michael Kors, Donna Karan, Lanvin, etc.
For nature lovers: Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary, 30 miles N. on #41 and across on Immokolee Road, is a splendid bird and reptile santuary, maintained by The National Audobon Society. With a boardwalk stretching 2+ miles out over the swamp, one can observe storks nesting in season, as well as many herons and other birds, and lots of alligators. The Everglades offer a more adventuresome trip by airboat, or pontoon boat, but the best way to see it is by canoe or kayak. There are many places to rent boats, with or without a guide.

Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: Kirk, a retired professor, who is interested in the political thought of Theodore Roosevelt, is, thankfully, finally retired from 12 years of being Mayor of Gambier, OH; Elizabeth is a practicing psychotherapist in Mt. Vernon, OH. We both plan to be busy at our various occupations for the next few years, and so will be renting the apartment in February - March, in season; and April-November on a more "annual" basis.
Why the Owner Chose Moorings (Naples, FL, USA):
We had inherited an apartment at Mansion House, where we have gone for 35 years. It is a wonderful place, but the aging knees needed an elevator. Hence, wanting to stay near by, we found this prize property only a few blocks north - still in an exclusive part of the Moorings, and practicaly IN the Gulf!
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The sense of being right on the beach; the warm and welcoming members (one brought cookies to us as we moved in!) who also respect privacy and don't intrude; watching the dolphins as they make their morning trip up the coast, and as they return in the afternoon.
