We take great pride in our Lely Resort home and visit it ourselves several times a year to make sure it's kept up to the highest standards. We hope that our guests will thoroughly enjoy themselves and the beauty of Naples while they are visiting.
When entering this exquisite home in the Majors you will experience the beautiful golf views that this premium lot offers. Along with this exclusive view comes everything you would expect in a home of this caliber. This very luxurious 4,169 SF property including lanai, has 2,867 SF of air conditioning and is beautifully decorated with all new furnishings. It is located in Naples most sought after community – The Majors – a private and double gated community within Lely Resort. What sets Lely Resort apart from every other community – it has every imaginable amenity and the friendliest people.
Lely Resort recently doubled their Player's Club fitness center, spa, restaurants, and added another beautiful lakefront pool. The finishes at the Player's Club and Spa certainly rival the most exquisite you'll find. After you spent your next vacation at Lely Resort, you will not want to go anywhere else!
This beautiful 3 bed, plus den, three full baths with granite counters throughout, lit art niches, custom architectural features, crown moldings, custom heated pool and spa, south-facing luxury estate property is situated directly on the 17th tee box of Mustang Island with magnificent golf and long lake views. Tastefully decorated in a lavish tropical style, the house sleeps 68 comfortably and includes a gourmet kitchen with huge walk-in pantry and generous indoor/outdoor entertaining space for 18.
An entertainer’s paradise, this home will please the most discerning guest! Your kitchen has everything a gourmet chef might need from the Keurig coffee pot, food processor, salad spinner, and blender to champagne glasses and service for 18! The bar in alcove in the great room is stocked with wine, champagne, cocktail glasses, blender, and other supplies. Everything you need for entertaining.
Expansive floor to ceiling sliding doors in the great room open onto an enormous 1,302 SF extended lanai. The heated silver pebble pool with spillover sunshelf and 8-person hot tub on the lanai face the most desirable southern exposure with areas of both sun and shade available throughout the entire day. If you rent a north, east, or west facing home you will get almost no sun!
WE JUST INSTALLED A BRAND NEW HIGH BTU POOL HEATER! We keep the pool heater on all day for you. We DO NOT charge extra for pool heating, which is rare. We want it to be ready for you to jump right in!
Your fabulous outdoor kitchen has a built-in BBQ, beverage refrigerator, and sink plus dining table for 8 with swivel chairs. Enjoy outdoor dining while overlooking the beautiful golf course and pool with its cascading waterfalls.
Come back inside the great room with its 14 foot vaulted tray ceilings to watch your 55' flat screen TV with DVD player, while you relax and recline on the Lane sofa or loveseat or the Ashley Barcelona accent chairs. Or make a drink at the wet bar and challenge friends or family to a game of pool right in your own great room.
When it’s time to rest, enjoy your luxurious master suite, with direct lanai access, complete with a brand new king Simmons Beauty Rest Plush Pillow top mattress with premium Grand Patrician 500 thread count sheets, 43” flat screen HDTV with DVD player, a huge, custom walk in closet, an en suite bath with double granite vanities, large soaking tub, and huge walk-in shower that you don’t have to squeegee! Open the bedroom window to the lanai and fall asleep listening to the three waterfall features.
Your guests or family will be equally indulged in complete privacy, on the other side of the house: two guest rooms with hi-end bedding, a queen bed with a new Sealy Posturepedic Silver Pointe Plush Euro Top Mattress, and two full beds with Organic Cotton Top Resort Plush Innerspring Euro Top Mattresses, 37” flat screen HDTVs with DVD players, and two beautifully decorated full baths with convenient shower built-ins.
For extra guests, the den’s leather sofa sleeper with an upgraded comfortable Healthcare mattress, quickly converts to a queen bed. Or, if you’d rather have some quiet time, retire to the den, shut the French doors, enjoy a book, watch a movie on the flat screen, or get caught up on your emails at the office desk, complete with all office supplies, printer, and Wifi.
In addition, the home has a separate beautifully decorated laundry room and a rare, spacious, three-car garage.
Enjoy cycling around the resort on our eight complimentary bicycles, (6 adult bikes, 2 are oversized at 29' base, for the taller person, 2 for kids, bike helmets provided). We even have a set of training wheels for a younger child.
Play tennis with the provided racquets, or challenge your family and friends to a game of pool right in your own great room! Our home provides everything you need for total enjoyment on your vacation stay!
We also keep the home stocked with magazines, books, movies, and Wii games, for those times when you want to relax at home.
Honored as Clubhouse of the Year for four years in a row by the Collier Building Industry Association, the Players Club & Spa at Lely Resort has completed a major expansion to its facilities. If you enjoy tennis, you’ll absolutely love the extraordinary new tennis complex at the Player’s Club & Spa. Thirteen new tennis courts, new pro shop with lounge and the Courtside Café were opened March 21, 2013. Joining the 13 new lighted Har-Tru tennis courts are a new tennis pro shop, and a centrally-located lounge area serving a light menu and providing a comfortable seating area for you to relax after playing. Tennis center features optional match play, doubles play, league play, and clinics for all skill levels.
After a tennis match, you can freshen up and shower in the locker room, then enjoy lounging on the sofas, relax with a smoothie or pastry, chat with friends, watch some big screen TV, or enjoy the beautiful Florida weather on the huge extended lanai! The Players Club & Spa Tennis Center is considered one of the finest in Southwest Florida.
The addition of 12,850 square feet, which began in May 2013, expanded The Players Club & Spa to a spectacular 29,760 square feet of community fun, fitness and camaraderie. The recreational offerings now include a new, larger fitness 6,000 SF fitness center, with personal trainers plus two 3,000 SF fitness classrooms, a luxurious new spa, more spacious dining facilities, expanded pool locker rooms with free lockers and steam room, and a fresh new upscale look. The latest feature, a 3rd pool with a resort style feeling and swim-under waterfall, is a warm welcome to our tropical aquatic area. Not to mention the toddler pool feature for the younger guests. Next to the pools you will appreciate the convenience of pool side showers, bathrooms, and day lockers, all inclusive in a stay at our vacation property.
The fitness facilities includes a second large aerobics room with an area dedicated for spinning classes. Spa services are offered in one of the four new treatment rooms or nail salon. The focal point for so many events at the Players Club & Spa is the dining experience and will become even more exciting. A new 100-seat Grill Room with indoor and outdoor seating and a signature bar offers a sophisticated new dining venue. Lely Resort is already one of the most amenity-rich communities in Naples and with the completion of The Players Club & Spa expansion, vacationers will have even more room to play, relax and celebrate together.
Enjoy fabulous golf right here at Lely Resort with access to the Mustang and Flamingo Island golf courses. The Mustang course, designed by Lee Trevino, is decorated with twelve lakes and received 4 stars by Golf Digest magazine. The Flamingo Island course, characterized by its sculpted shaping of the natural topography, is a hallmark of course designer Robert Trent Jones, Sr.
The newly expanded 30,000 square foot Players Club & Spa has many amenities including a sprawling resort style pool with waterfall, cabanas, a separate junior olympic lap pool, sandy beach area, water tot pool, fitness center with cardio, machines, free weights, personal trainers, yoga/pilates classes, beautiful locker rooms, steam and sauna rooms, yoga garden, whirlpool spa, massage service, media room, theater room, basketball, billiards, bocce courts, horseshoes, restaurant, arts & crafts room, and a poolside Tiki bar.
Unlike many golf communities that only offer golf, leaving out the non-golfer, Lely Resort caters to everyone. The social and dining scene at the club is fabulous. You'll especially love the all-you-can-eat Sunday Brunch and Wednesday Pasta Night! Lely Resort's Director organizes events for all ages, from themed parties, fashion shows, watercolor workshops to Bridge Clubs, leagues, and sporting events.
After visiting numerous golf communities (looking for that perfect home) in Naples, we kept coming back to Lely Resort because of the outstanding amenities, beauty, and the awesome friendliness of all the Lely staff and residents.
When you’ve enjoyed many of Lely Resort’s amenities, it’s great going back to a quiet, gorgeous home with total privacy plus luxurious indoor and outdoor living spaces. We just enhanced the landscaping in the front yard with beautiful flowers, plants, and a pygmy date palm, which you'll enjoy returning home to.
We want to welcome you to our home and know you’ll have a fabulous time and love it as much as we do. During your stay, here your only stress will be in deciding what fun or relaxing thing to do each day.
Book now, this Lely Resort paradise will go fast!

About Brian Bell
My wife and I have two daughters that are still in school. We love vacationing at our new Naples home, but can only do so when the girls have school breaks. Therefore we are making our vacation home available to the discerning traveler who wants something just a little more special. Everything in our home is brand new. We enjoy super comfortable quality furniture and have furnished the home with the most comfortable Ashley, Lane, and other quality furniture that you just don't find in a rental. We understand that if you can afford to stay at a vacation home in Naples, you deserve something very, very nice. We will provide that for you. We take great pride in our Lely Resort home and visit it ourselves several times a year to make sure it's kept up to the highest standards. We hope that our guests will thoroughly enjoy themselves and the beauty of Naples while they are visiting. This is not just another rental; this is a personal residence and you will absolutely love it!!!
Brian Bell purchased this House in 2011
Why Brian Bell chose Lely Resort
After looking at many homes this year, my wife and I knew we found the right place when we discovered Naples. We especially liked the southwestern side of Florida as you have a beautiful, calm ocean, without the brutal winds and choppy waters of the Atlantic side. After discovering Lely Resort, we proceeded to look at other area golf communities. However, they just didn't have the beauty or amenities of Lely Resort. The entire resort has a lush tropical feel, beautiful flowers throughout, and palm trees everywhere! My wife doesn't golf but I do. She was amazed at all the fun activities for people who don't golf or for those who want activities in addition to golf. We enjoyed early morning beach walks and thought how nice it would be to live in Naples. We tried out the Sunday brunch at the Lely Resort’s Players Club & Spa. It was absolutely fabulous and reasonable too. The staff was amazingly friendly. Sitting by the Players Club pool, enjoying the waterfall, views, and great weather just did it. We decided to purchase this Majors home before we were ready to retire and lease it to those discerning folks who have worked hard in life and deserve a wonderful place to visit on vacation.
What makes this House unique
The extended, screened, cover lanai, extra long pool, 6’ x 6’ sunshelf for tanning or cooling off, and hot tub directly overlook the 17th hole of Mustang Island. The weather in Naples is awesome! When you sit on the covered lanai early in the morning and watch the sunrise over the golf course, while listening to the water features, you know you're going to have another wonderful day! The Majors is a double gated exclusive community witin Lely Resort, with very few homes to rent. This home is just 10 minutes to the Naples Pier or Marco Island with all the beautiful beaches. Naples has great shopping, fantastic restaurants, and more golf courses per square mile than anywhere in America! As this is our future retirement home, we spared no expense when furnishing the home to the highest quality. The home is peaceful, quiet, and beautiful. Everything was custom painted and professionally decorated. We’ve stayed in other VRBOs and wished they provided things like a fully stocked kitchen, printer, scissors, tape, pencil sharpener, sticky notes, or envelopes. We added all the conveniences you may need when you stay at our home! If you find something we overlooked, just let us know and we’ll get that too! We want you to feel right at home!

As ‘repeat attenders’, we have chosen this vacation home four times. We are always delighted by the amenities of the home and resort and the hospitality of the owners. Everything we need and want is in the lovely villa and it is the center of our activity. Despite lazy, relaxed days, our vacation time there passes all too quickly.
Perfect! You will be wanting nothing, guaranteed.
It was a pleasure from the beginning dealing with Brian and Laurie, booking their home for our family vacation. A simple review of the images, descriptions, and reviews on the site helped us make a quick decision that was the place for us. Especially since we have stayed in Lely for last 9yrs and enjoyed the Players Club and all it's benefits, so we already knew the area was great and the Majors was upscale.
I can honestly say there were ZERO disappointments. Being a family with young children it is usually difficult to please everyone, not this time. First morning kids had breakfast on the big beautiful lanai, then it was right in the pool, for 7hrs the first day I think. Pool was stocked with inflatable toys, masks, flippers etc. Sit in the hot tub, or layout on the lounge chairs, or sit in comfortable rockers and read a book in the shade. Everyone was happy, then the doorbell rings. Tough to hear with the kids and their music playing, but what a nice surprise when an edible fruit and chocolate arrangement arrives from the owners. What a nice touch to kick off the vacation on the right note.
The house is awesome, and perfect size for our family of 5. My 9 yr old son wanted to show me his room, but he kept getting lost trying to bring me to it, that was a good laugh. Master bedroom and bath are on one side of the house, kids at the other end which was nice.
There is a bathroom right off the pool deck also which makes it convenient. 3 full baths total, so nobody was fighting (thank the lord!)
Everything has already been thought of for you. Great furnishings, comfy beds, soft linens, plenty of pool/beach towels etc, pantry has all the misc stuff you don't need to think of like baggies for the beach, paper towels, spices etc.
A nice Keurig coffee maker as well as standard for either way you want it.
Oh, did I mention the pool table right in the living room area. I have never seen so much use of a pool table. We had some fun competitions.
It rained for only an afternoon on one day, but we rented some movies at RedBox and there was a nice DVD player in the living room with each couch having reclining features. Everyone cozied up and had a nice afternoon break from the sun.
At the end of the day there is no doubt that the owners take pride in their property, but most of all you genuinely feel that they care that YOU have an awesome time and want to ensure that they have addressed everything for you.
"Would not change a thing", said my wife!
Thank you for taking the time to review your recent vacation at our home in the Majors at Lely Resort.We do care that our guests have everything we can think of for a relaxing vacation. We know a lot of thought is put into choosing a vacation destination. We want to make sure our property matches the description!
Per each visit to Naples, we strive to see what improvements can be made to the property. This year we are upgrading the kitchen appliances to stainless steel and changing the granite. We may also change the fabric on the outdoor cushions on the swivel rocking chairs. I’m glad you enjoyed those chairs!
After nine vacations to Naples, I am glad you discovered our property and it worked out very well for your family! Having a home that is relaxing to parents, while the children play in the pool is a wonderful thing. When Laurie and I first get out to Naples, we always assess what we need to do for the vacation home to keep it looking new and well stocked. Without a care in the world, our girls always hopped in the pool about five minutes after arriving. Then many hours later after swimming I’d hear, “Dad please turn on the hot tub.”
Laurie’s mom always told her when someone comes to your house, make sure they have something to eat! Perhaps that’s how we came up with the arrival gift idea.
That’s funny your young son got lost looking for his room. We also like the separation of parents on one side, kids on the other. It works out well for everyone. Having three full bathrooms is also a plus. Our home in Colorado has 39 steps from the garage to the master so we LOVE this ranch home.
Having a nice large TV in the living room with kick out footrests is definitely nice for relaxing. When we purchased this home and looked for furniture we did not want the stiff furniture with wicker and tropical décor. We’ve stayed at tropical places with stiff furniture. It looks cute but it is unusable. We brought in the tropical feel through wall art, the spillover pool, and real palm trees around the property!
Thank your wife for the comment that she would not change a thing! If a future visit works, we would love to have you spend time with your family, once again. Have a wonderful rest of your year.
Laurie & Brian
Magnificent home, wonderful hosts, great golf
In 35 years of renting vacation homes, this was the loveliest. This elegant spacious home was comfortable and exceeded all expectations. Our favorite feature was the huge lanai We spent most of our time out on the lanai, reading, dining and relaxing in the pool and hot tub. We also loved the layout of the house with the master bedroom suite on one side and the 2 guest rooms with bath on the other. Lots of privacy for everyone! Brian and Laurie were exceptional hosts.! Lely resort is beautiful,especially great for golfers. We played both the flamingo and mustang courses. They were both beautifully maintained , challenging and fun. Clubhouse was perfect for lunch after.
This house was a splurge but worth every penny. We would be thrilled to return.
Thank you so much for the very kind words that our home was the nicest vacation property you rented in 35 years. The compliment is a little over the top but very much appreciated. Brian and I do our best to keep the property nice for arriving guests.
When we first saw this property seven years ago Brian didn’t initially like it as much as me. With the entire inside painted lime green, it wasn’t his favorite. What really caught our eye was the outside living space. We had never had an outdoor kitchen with built in grill, sink, and fridge. I thought the large pillars looked lavish. The spillover pool with additional water feature and sun shelf created a very relaxing feel.
As we toured the home, we decided we could change the home’s interior but you couldn’t change the lanai and south facing lot. We enjoyed the process of turning the property into a special vacation home for others to enjoy.
That’s great you got to try out both the Mustang and Flamingo courses. It is very convenient to have them right at the resort. Last summer they put millions of dollars into redoing both courses. It’s nice to see the final manicured result.
I’m glad the property worked out well for your family. Thank you for taking the time
to review your stay.

Carefree vacation home
This home was perfect for a vacation that accomadated everyone .there is golf,tennis,pools and dining available if you want to leave the house which is comfortable and carefree. We had three generations in our party and there was something for everyone! Also a big plus was the fact that the owners are definitely hands on and attend to your every concern or question quickly
Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at our vacation home. I am glad you liked the property and Lely Resort. There is a lot to do with golf, tennis, pools, hot tubs, dining, an expansive fitness center, spa, and more. When our family is there, we almost never eat anywhere except poolside at the Tiki Bar. Or in the dining room at the Player's Club & Spa. We make it a rule that we must overeat on at least one Sunday brunch and Wednesday pasta night when we visit. That was nice that three generations got to spend time together. I know how special those times are as our children are now both young adults venturing out on their own. I hope a future visit works for you. It is always nice to take a break from the cold. There is nothing like stepping off the plane and being in a warm, tropical climate with palm trees, flowers, and NO snow to shovel!
Brian & Laurie
Excellent home, Excellent vacation!
This home was our 5th time VRBO and this home is THE BEST ever! Brian communicates very fast and was wonderful to work with. From the moment we set our foot into this beautiful home, we felt right at home! Our 3 kids ABSOLUTELY LOVED this house, esp the pool and billiards. These 2 things provided endless entertainment.They did not want to leave the house and we actually had to drag them out to grab some food around 3 p.m. everyday. The club house is amazing too but after being there for 2 hrs, our kids all preferred the home pool and we never went back to the club house. I am a very picky mom when it comes to finding a suitable accommodation for our vacation and this home TRULY met ALL of our needs. I have never been to a VRBO that was so well stocked! Name it, they have it for you! Brian was so kind to even have his handy man pick up new pool toys for our kids for our stay! Our kids could have gone without it b/c the pool already had many toys, but that was SO thoughtful of him! Brian and Laurie also delivered a yummy fruit arrangement for our stay. Thank you Brian and Laurie! We had the most amazing family vacation! Our kids still talk non stop about our wonderful vacation in your wonderful home!
Dear Nam Mee,
Thank you for the VERY kind words on our Lely Resort vacation home. With three children, you probably don’t have a lot of free time, so I appreciate you taking the time to review your stay! I know you had mentioned this was the first time your children had a home with a private pool and hot tub to enjoy. I am glad that our home was available when you inquired! Normally March is reserved a long time in advance! Over the last few years, our children also loved spending many hours in the pool. Sometimes I would swim with our kids. Other times I would nap or enjoy reading poolside. I am glad to hear your children enjoyed the pool toys. As adults, we still enjoy floating on the pool without a care in the world! On our next visit to Naples, we are going to stock up with about 10 extra ready to go pool toys and keep them in the garage. That way, if some deflate between our visits, they are more ready to be used! That was very nice of you to email a couple pictures of the kids having fun in the pool. Also eating at one of our favorite gelato shops in Naples. It is nice to see other families enjoying the property, while we are in Colorado. (with no palm trees, beaches, or beautiful resorts). You can tell the children that Brian and Laurie plan on having this home for a very long time. Therefore, it will be there if your family plans on a future Naples vacation. Have a wonderful rest of the year.
Laurie & Brian
Simply Put: Outstanding
A beautiful home with exceptional attention to detail. Brian and Laurie are wonderful to work with and extremely responsive. We had 2 families stay (4 adults and 4 children) and the house is well-suited for each family to have its own space. The pool and hot tub are great and the golf course views are relaxing. The property is stocked with everything you could possibly need. I would recommend this property without hesitation. A true 10 out of 10.
Dear Brian W. & Family,
Thank you for the very positive review! That was very kind of you. I know that with two young kids you do not have a lot of free time. I really appreciate you taking the time to review our Lely Resort vacation home, right after your trip! It was a pleasure having you and your friends stay at the property.
Thank you for the compliment that Laurie and I are extremely responsive to any questions. We know that, in life, people work very hard to be able to take a vacation. We want to do our part to help the vacation run smoothly! That’s why we don’t use a property manager. We want to be able to take care of any situation immediately and not go through someone else. When any guest is at the property, my phone is right next to me and I check my email often! Of course, we have local Naples people that we can come over right away to fix anything, if needed.
It is nice for couples traveling together that the master bedroom is on one side of the house and the other bedrooms way at the other end of the house. When our teenage girls are with us, we don't hear them at all when they stay up late!
We also really enjoy the pool and hot tub! Whenever we’re shoveling snow in Colorado, we ask ourselves, why aren’t we at Lely Resort! Have a fantastic year. Brian & Laurie
