Welcome to our newly renovated studio located steps away from Vanderbilt Beach surrounded by nature. You can enjoy Naples, the gem of Florida's Gulf Coast, at very reasonable rates. (Naples was named America's Best All-Around Beach for 2005 by the Travel Channel!) Within walking distance on the beach is the 'La Playa Resort' that has many water activities such as jet skiing, kayaking, para-sailing and a beach bar and restaurant. A little farther walk down the beach is the Ritz-Carlton Naples.

Our condo is located in the Vanderbilt Towers I at Vanderbilt Beach (closest one to the beach). It is on the 5th floor of an eight story building with a secured lobby in a gated community. It's located by Delnor-Wiggins State Park nature preserve and the Gulf of Mexico. You can relax by the pool or enjoy swimming, sunbathing, and fishing on the white sandy beaches. Within minutes of the condo, you can rent bicycles, charter fishing boats, dinner cruises, dolphin cruises or just about whatever you heart desires. With more than 100 of the finest courses in the country, the greater Naples area has few rivals as a major golf capital with over 150 courses in Collier & Lee Counties.

Should you desire a break from the sun, Naples also offers world-class shopping. Within minutes either by car or trolly, you can reach upscale shops, quaint specialty stores and fantastic art galleries. Naples also offers an indoor mall, a nearby outlet mall and plenty of souvenir shops such as those found at Tin City. A number of grocery stores and theaters are located within a mile of the condo and an abundance of restaurants are within a 5 minute drive.

Naples is also home to world-class entertainment with the Naples Philharmonic Center for the Arts regularly hosting Broadway shows and top performers in its 1200 seat modern theater.

Florida Southwest Fort Myers International Airport is only a short 30 minute ride from the condo.

Our condo is tastefully updated with ceramic tile flooring, newly refreshed kitchen with top of the line appliances and granite counter tops, new bathroom, all new light fixtures, new window treatments, all new bedding, new living room and its freshly painted throughout. We offer all the amenities of home right down to the very last detail -- all cookware, dishes, blankets, hairdryers, iron, blue-ray player, new 47' LCD TV with cable, and beach necessities (including beach towels, beach chairs, beach umbrella).

There is 525 sq. feet of living area which includes the kitchen, full bath/shower, dining table, living room with a queen sleeper/ sofa and a recliner chair, screened lanai with table and chairs. There is a very comfortable queen Murphy bed. There is plenty of closet space. New 18' white shinning diamond tiles throughout for large space feeling.

There is a common laundry room available on each floor at 1$/load

Naples Beach condo - Doorstep From The White Sands Of Vanderbilt Beach
average rating of 5.0 based on 4 reviews
Zionsville, Indiana

Wonderful Unit and Owner--truly paradise on Earth!!

  • 5 of 5

This studio is simply ideal if you want to enjoy all Naples has to offer. The unit is tastefully decorated and fully equipped with all I needed--even a wine refrigerator and a few different types of coffee machines! An additional benefit is the ability to see the glorious sunrise from the balcony each morning with that coffee! There is an outdoor gas grill with a picnic area in the building courtyard adjacent to the pool which was very easy to use. The beach is literally 20 steps away and a state park is right next door that offers kayaking, water boarding, fishing, etc. and a bike/walking path. Restaurants, shopping, even a local farmer's market are within a mile reach. Robert, the owner, was incredibly accessible throughout my stay and provided me with a comprehensive summary that offered helpful suggestions on how to enhance my visit. He even suggested attending a building function which I did and very much enjoyed meeting all the friendly and engaging residents and renters. The only minor inconveniences were a curtain that served as the bathroom door and one building elevator still inoperable due to hurricane Irma. Neither of these have prevented me from renting this unit for an additional two months throughout the year however (and I had various options available even at lower prices). This one is well worth it! I can't wait to return!!!

About Naples

Closest grocery located here 1½ miles away: Walmart and Publix (Riverside Mall)

Pool is heated and shared with building 2. There is a barbecue between Tower 1 and pool. Shower and bathroom at the pool. You need the building key to access the pool, the toilet area (pool and lobby) and any of the 4 building entrances.

There are 2 backdoor entrances to the building: One will shortcut to the beach, the other one is for the trash bins (recycle and general) and the shower/water hose to take sand off from the beach before coming in. Outside the latter, there is a white fence with an access door to the side (hazard: watch out for the door extrusion at head height). You just need to push/pull that door to open. I usually come back from beach through this one.

Beer and wine is great for sunset at the beach, just make sure you hide it in a plastic cup and you won't have any issue.

Best Bio/organic food is from Trader's Joe or Whole Foods less than 5 min away.

2 great spots for going out and restaurants: Mercato (access from 41 or Vanderbilt blvd) and 5e ave. Best cinema is at Mercato and one is nearby Costco. M Waterside is a nice place to dine out.

Mercato: after 9 pm at BRAVO is cheap appetizer at the bar; Wednesday is ½ price on wine bottle at the English PUB; Blue Martini and Burns for high class bar and cigar lounge. Just tour the place, there is a lot more to see.

Best beaches are facing condo (Vanderbilt/Bluebill and Wiggins). But downtown Naples and anywhere between Naples Pier and Vanderbilt is nice. A great walk is from Naples Pier going south, you will see big mansions worth 5 M$ + and the walk to the pass is 5 miles (8 km) total (including return).

Shopping is everywhere: Marshall's, Ross and TJMaxx (just google). Waterside is upper class and has nice restaurants: happy hour at BRIO (Italian) is cheap and high class (corner of Pine Ridge and 41) offers great happy hour at the bar from 5-6h30 pm.
