About the Property

The Five Star Alternative – Think Outside The (Hotel) Box! (Sleeps 4)

Every Day A Beach Day > A Casual Contemporary Retreat
Listen to the gentle surf, take in the panoramic beach and ocean views and devour exquisite romantic sunsets at SeaChase, the Jewel of Naples/Vanderbilt Beach - for those who insist on only the best! Truly, a sun, cultural, golf and surf Mecca that attracts people the world over. This completely renovated elegant but casual 'cottage condo' is situated on the same beach between the Naples Ritz Carlton and the La Playa world-class hotels, each just a short beach stroll away. Come and collect shells and gather memories.

Contact Us 1st Before Making Payment
This site is a little misleading. You should request additional info and ultimately a rental agreement before making any payments. There is also a link on the website under OWNER that you can SEND EMAIL directly.

The Five Star Alternative – Think Outside The Box!
A Wall Street Journal article recently queried: 'Are you tired of five-star hotels charging too much for too little? Overpaying for a vacation is not a status symbol.' Treat yourself to this luxurious romantic ocean front condo if you desire the equivalent of an extended stay at the Ritz Carlton or LaPlaya but with much more room (1500 sf v. 350 sf) and privacy at prices that will leave you with money to spoil yourself! Our rates are generally 50% less than compared to a single room at The Ritz Carlton with 4 times more space. Check out the Ritz Carlton alternative.

Say Goodbye Hotel and Hello Relaxation.
We have never met a 5 star hotel room that we still loved after a few days or so. Think outside the BOX! And yes, for those of us that still need your 'Carlton Fix' - help yourself to all the Ritz and LaPlaya amenities - just steps away - right on our same beach.

We recently completed a major upgrade. We replaced all the wooden floors and tile throughout and completely re-did the 2 bathrooms including new showers, glass shower doors, etc. etc. The new wooden flooring style is called “Beach”! Also, all new “sand” granite counter tops throughout.

Vitamin Sea: Where Life’s Rewards Comes In Waves!
If You’re Lucky Enough To Stay On The Beach – You're Lucky Enough!
SeaChase features 300 feet of sugar sand beach frontage, a gated community and a secured newly renovated lobby. The beach always has ample room for our guests! A heated, low-intensity, gulf side swimming pool and under building garage parking are two of many amenities. Current SeaChase building condo values range from $1,300,000 to $4,000,000+ $$USD. This 1500 square-foot, two-bedroom/two-full-bath Beach House has a screened-in lanai, master bedroom with a king-size bed and a master bath that all overlook the ocean. The master bath boasts an oversize bathtub, a separate walk-in shower, and an extra-large closet with dressing area. The second spacious bedroom contains twin beds with a separate full bath. Each bedroom has its own 32” flat screen TV. This non-smoking unit was the showplace property when SeaChase was initially sold. Seas the Day...and the Night!

Naples Tops Travel Channel’s Best Beach List
We’re already well known for World Class Golf and World Class Shopping, but now its official! The Travel Channel recently has named Naples: America’s Best All Around Beach! Travel writers from Conde Nast, Fodor’s and USA Today all contributed their input to come up with the final list. We beat out Hawaii, the Florida Keys, the Virgin Islands, and Florida’s Atlantic coast.

Smithsonian Magazine Names Naples One of the Top 10 Best Small Towns in America - May 2012

Coastal Living Magazine named Naples America's 2nd Most Happy Seaside Town - June 2012. And yes, Naples was the only Florida location to make the Top 10 list.

At Vanderbilt Beach, You'll Forget What Day It Is!
SW Florida is also known as the Paradise Coast! Come and experience day after day of 'Another Day in Paradise!' This distinctive property includes many upgrades plus an open kitchen, great room, and dining room area. This newly renovated Beach House contains a fully equipped kitchen. The great room boasts an entertainment center with a 50” flat screen Wi-Fi connected SmartTV, VCR/DVD, and Bose stereo/CD player. All rooms are direct view ocean front, except the second bedroom/bath.

Beware of Condo Flippers Who Flopped!
Know what you are paying for and getting! This condo has served as the owners second home since 1999. This is very significant as our condo is as well-appointed and meticulously kept as our primary residence waterfront home. Beware of “luxury condo” money machines that are in a million dollar location, often "quietly" owned by a local real estate broker, furnished by 2nd hand furniture and very run down since the owner never occupies the unit. Insist on knowing this information, checking references and seeing current pictures before finalizing a condo rental decision. Email us for our 50-picture web link that clearly shows the quality of this condo, the outside building, pool, beach and ocean views.

What To Expect
This condo is not another “average high end rental” money machine. It is our second home and that is how we welcome you – as a guest in a home that we love, and that we’re proud of and eager for you to love too! We want you to feel special when you are staying at our little piece of paradise. We want you to expect that everything has been taken care of so that you feel welcomed, relaxed and most comfortable. We want to impress you and have you become one of our regular return parties that love and becomes personally attached to this little piece of paradise as are we. We want you to be Spoiled, Happy Guests … Not Renters.

Your Sound Is Our Sound
Listen to music wirelessly from your computer or Bluetooth® device through our SmartTV or Bose Sound stereo music system with SoundLink. Bring your phone, tablet, laptop or I-Pod with your favorite music and we’ll do the rest. Of course, you can bring your own CDs or use ours as well.

Welcome to a place that exceeds expectations that you didn’t even know you had! Surf On Over!

Do you owe it to yourselves to experience only the best? Are you ready for your life’s rewards to come in waves? Comfort but luxury? Are you a person who can truly appreciate a Ritz Carlton, LaPlaya or Four Seasons vacation? Come stay at the unit that other SeaChase owners who rent try to imitate!

A Recent Review Says It All... Our family of four has stayed at hotels on Vanderbilt Beach several times, none of which could provide the relaxing atmosphere of this condo! It really WAS a home away from home: clean, well-equipped and with lovely decor, a fabulous location, more fabulous view, and very caring renters who saw to our every need. We liked the security of the gated building and felt very safe on the property. The beach was perfect and not remotely as crowded as the hotel beach areas, a huge benefit! All of the beach rentals we wanted were available just a short walk down the beach, even motorized paddle boards! Fabulous restaurants were within walking distance (advance reservations required!) or just a short 15-20 minute drive away into Old Naples. We had a fabulous week and would return! <Check out all the (5 STAR reviews).

Owner info

About the owner: Just 'Another Beautiful Sunset' for the Reagans and Guests! We enjoy our second home a couple months a year as an escape to paradise from snowy central New York. Today we are getting between 1.5 and 2 feet of snow!

Why the Owner Chose Vanderbilt Beach, North Naples, FL, USA:
We rented at SeaChase as an alternative to an extended stay at the nearby Ritz Carlton and could not get over the advantages of a spacious 1500 sf beautiful apartment versus a "well-appointed" 350 sf room. The beachfront Ritz and LaPlaya are on either side of us and a delight to visit for lunch, dinner or a drink. The world famous beachfront Turtle Club is equally close by > a few buildings away. Our pool and beachfront always has lots of space available. Total relaxation. Well over half our rentals are returning parties. We don't have "renters" ... we cater to our guests! SeaChase is the place to be on the beach for a shorter term rental. Only a few owners out of our 31 total units rent their condos.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
At SeaChase, you get the same location, a beautifullly appointed apartment, 4 times the space, a full kitchen and laundry, beautiful people, at half the cost. (And you don't need to 'get dressed up' to go to the beach or pool or jockey for prime space on the beach!).
