About Brandi Ickes

My sister,Heidi, mother, Nancy, and I (Brandi) bought this home about 10 years ago. It has been a labor of love for us and we have put a lot of hours and heart into making it a nice and cozy place for vacationers to stay. We all moved to Naples in 1990 from a small town in Northeastern Ohio. My sister and I are graduates of universities in Florida. Heidi, graduated from Flagler college in 1993 with BA in Business Adm. and I, graduated from University of Central Florida in 1996 with a BA in Spanish Literature and Anthropology. We are local business owners and my mother has been a social worker for 22 years in Naples. We all live locally so we are able to give you suggestion for the best places to go and things to do in Naples! Please feel free to ask us anything about your visit! We love Naples and really enjoy when our guest have a great time in our city!!

Brandi Ickes purchased this house in 2004

Why Brandi Ickes chose Vanderbilt Beach

We purchased this property because as youngsters, we always vacationed on Vanderbilt Beach and Wiggins Pass. The memories are embedded for life, some really amazing times ! We want to keep creating the memories for our children!

Excellent Property

This was a most excellent place to stay. The house was lovely and close to so many things...especially the beautiful beaches. As well, Brandi, our host, was excellent. If you are thinking of a place in Naples...this is it!

Great house, quite neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

A few of us older guys decided on a last minute trip to the gulf coast for some fishing and beach time, booked this house the day before we left and everything was great. The owner was helpful, the house nice and clean and in a quite neighborhood. Much better and cheaper than 2 hotel rooms and just a few minutes to the beach.

family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this house! We have two little boys, age 3 and 10 months, it was the perfect little house to give us the room we needed to spread out and not be on top of each other and also was nice to have the large back yard our oldest could run around in. The property was exactly as advertised and very reasonably priced compared to the other VRBOs we looked at. We also loved that it was so close to the beach, just a couple minute car ride and we were there. The owners also had beach chairs, a beach umbrella, beach towels, beach toys for the boys, etc. for our use...which we greatly appreciated!

Overall we loved our stay and would definitely recommend the place to others!
