3 Bedroom, 2 1/2 Bathroom Pool Home Located In The Heart Of Old Naples.

Renovated family vacation home located in the heart of historic Olde Naples. 3B/2.5B with approx. 2049 sq ft. Appliances include refrigerator, range, dishwasher, disposal, microwave, and full size washer and dryer.

Sleep 8-10 as follows:

Large comfortable sectional with electronic recliners.

Open floor plan is conductive to multi-generation family gatherings; grill fresh fish on the veranda while others swim in the pool or lounge in the family room/dining area. This pool home, parts of which have been renovated and remodeled, is a sanctuary in Naples, Florida. You won't have to use our car once you arrive. Amazing restaurants and shopping are right out your doorstep, and the beach is only 2 short blocks away. We have enjoyed watching pelicans from the pier (a 10-minute walk from the house), dolphins from the beach, and most recently, bald eagles that appear to have nested on our property.

About Glennette

I'm Carol Bosshardt. I grew up in Rockford Illinois. Attended and Graduated the University of Wisconsin with a degree in social work. That's what I did for a while and remain a social worker at heart. My family was in the Real Estate and construction business. We moved to Gaineville Florida in 1977 and it didn't take me long to go into real estate. Eventually I started my own real estate company and today we are the largest most successful company in Gainesville. I'm an entrepreneur at heart and have started banks and many other projects over the years. My two children have given me five grandchildren, who are the joy of my life.

Glennette purchased this cottage in 2001

Why Glennette chose Old Naples

My parents were one of the first condo owners on Marco Island. We had a property there for 20 years. My daughter as she grew would often comment that we always ended up driving to Naples to do things.

We bought this home because is has an amazing location. Being a real estate broker I know the old saying is too true. Location, Location, Location.

I've put a lot of my own energy into remodeling this home. It may not look like much from the front, but it definitely has it where it counts. This property has become my sanctuary away from work and business. Unfortunately we don't get down to Naples as often as we should, when we do this home is perfect.

The third street shopping and restaurant area has continued to improve. Most of the parades start from here and in the winter they have snow makers and plenty of activity for families.

What makes this cottage unique

The house is simple and comfortable. The location is to die for. Over the years with the remodeling and upgrades we have done, we've learned to love and appreciate this home. There isn't much like it in Naples and if you want to truly enjoy all that Naples has to offer this home and location definitely beat the more touristy areas.

Fine location

  • 4 of 5

An old home with minimal street appeal but quite comfortable inside. It was well equipped and the owners were very responsive to our needs. The location is superb--a 200 yard walk to the beach and 50 yards to 3rd St., a marvelous collection of fine shops and dining. A fine way to enjoy old Naples!

Close to perfect

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for six people. Two blocks from the beach. We ate in all but one night because eating in is almost always better than eating out. The pool was clean, plenty of towels, etc. A most enjoyable stay.

Not a better location in Naples to stay. We stayed here for a long 4th of July Weekend. Great location parked at the house and walked everywhere including beaches and restaurants and shops. Farmers Market two blocks away on Saturdays. Do not let the exterior picture fool you; the interior is updated modern and extremely comfortable. We slept on the recliner sofa because it was so comfortable we would fall asleep. Pool is serviced and great. Good for our pet with fenced in back yard as well as screened lanai. Will come back again.

This comfortable house - a short two block walk from the beach - has been our family's preferred vacation home in an area we have visited for nearly 20 years. The home is located in the heart of Olde Naples adjacent to the third street historic district and only footsteps from cafes, restaurants and shops. The weekly farmers market on Saturdays is less then 100 yards away. Fifth Avenue South is only 1 mile away. Cambier park is also withing walking distance. A pet friendly dog walking park behind fifth avenue shopping that includes: Five Lighted Shuffleboard Courts, Two Boccee Courts, Arthur L. Allen Tennis Center, Bandshell, Unique Children's Playground, Softball Field, Covered Pavillion, Lots of Open Green Space to Enjoy a Picnic.

Once you arrive at the house, you won't need to drive anywhere. There is plenty of entertainment and eating withing walking distance.

The Naples Pier is less then 1/2 mile away and fishing from the pier without a license is legal.

If you have children and don't mind driving, the Naples Children Museum just opened this past year and its located right next to Naples Municipal Waterpark. It is only a ten minute drive. Other kid-friendly activities include the zoo, botanical gardens, Naples depot, movie theaters, kayaking and boat rentals/manatee cruises. The Ding Darling bird sanctuary, Corkscrew wildlife Preserve, Everglades National Park, and state parks are within an hour's drive.
