About kate johns shaw

Our family consists of my husband, a lawyer and me, an architect. We have 2 grown children.

kate johns shaw purchased this house in 2011

Why kate johns shaw chose Vanderbilt Beach

our family has enjoyed vacationing in Naples Park for years. We decided to buy this house so we could establish more of a connection with this location we love so much. Also because interior design matters to all of us, we wanted to create a wonderful space for ourselves and our guests. The decor has a relaxed, beach house feel. The windows are big. The space is open and airy.

What makes this house unique

The best thing about our location is its close proximity to a wonderful public beach, a pristine national seashore. We also love being able to walk or bike everywhere. The neighborhood has a quiet, retro, "Olde Florida", 1950's feel to it. One of my favorite things is taking an early morning walk on the beach and watching the dolphins curl in and out of the water. My husband likes to run to the beach, take a swim and run back to the house. A very pleasant exercise routine. We love cooking with all the fresh Florida vegetables, fish and fruits. Old Naples is about a twenty minute drive from the house. Lots of boutique shopping and art galleries and restaurants. Some cool historic house museums in old Naples and Fort Meyers.

There are 8 highly rated public golf courses rated 3 stars or more by golflink within 1/2 hour of house. Two of them are 2 award winning, one of which is 12 minutes from house, (Tiburon Golf Club, Gold Course).

Tennis is easily available as well-- the Veteran's Community Park has 4 lit tennis courts 7 minutes from the house, open to the public for free.

Great location for vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was for two weeks in March and the house was exactly what we expected. The location was perfect for going to the beach shopping and dining . The house was very clean and the kitchen well equipped. We especially enjoyed the back lanai. Thanks Kate for giving us a great vacation.

Everything You Need

  • 5 of 5

We just spent our second winter in this wonderful Florida house. This place has everything you need for a great winter vacation, clean, bright, location to shopping, beaches and resturanants. They have also supplied great bicycles for our morning rides to breakfast. Our little Westie love her walks in Conner park only a few blocks away. I would recommend this place anytime. Thanks Kate for making our visit to Naples so great.

Great property and location

  • 5 of 5

The owner, Kate, was very responsive to my initial inquiries and questions after I booked the week. The house is very nice. We enjoyed sitting out in the back screened in lanai. It had everything we needed in the kitchen, wifi, cable tv and the extra things like beach chairs and gas grill were also nice pluses! The house is located near Delnor Wiggins State Park and the owners graciously included a pass to the beach too! We really liked this beach. The house was very clean and comfortable. The area is residential and quiet. We would definitely consider staying in this home again if we head back to Naples.

Pleasant stay at well located home with excellent hosts

  • 5 of 5

We were overall very pleased with our stay. About a 15-20 minute drive to central Naples. Walk to Delnor Wiggins beach was actually 20 minutes minimum, a few minutes more to Vanderbilt Beach. A 5 minute drive, and we enjoyed having the free parking pass at DW state park beach. We preferred Delnor Wiggins, since less crowded and backed by scrubby vegetation rather than high rise condos, than Vanderbilt Beach. DW beach is shallower, however.

The house is fairly well appointed. Kitchen has newish basic appliances which work well, though the dishwasher is NOISY.

The three bedrooms are fairly well sized. The mattresses are disappointing. Lower end, but were adequate for 3 of 5 of us. The sheets and pillows could be upgraded also.

Keep in mind that the home is a good value for its location. The neighborhood is very pleasant and quiet.
