2 Bedroom/2 Bath Condo on First Floor, Steps to the Beach & Outdoor Cafes
About Sarah LaBarbera
Sarah and Frank have been visiting Naples, Florida together since we first started dating back when we lived in Atlanta, GA & Philadelphia, Pa. When we had our son we knew we wanted a beach home for him in Naples so he would grow to love the area as much as we do. In April of 2014 our family was blessed with the opportunity to move to London, England. We are now enjoying a much longer commute to the beautiful Naples beaches! Naples has become our 'happy' place, and we know it will become your happy place too! On our frequent visits we love exploring Olde Naples...eating at the many restaurants, browsing the art galleries and boutiques and ending our day watching the sunset from the beach. Our new beach home allows us to do all of this without having to get in the car. Truly a perfect match for us. We hope you enjoy our new beach home as much as we do.

We had a nice stay! Great location, walking distance to everything we needed!
Very good dimensions and excellent location
Prime location & perfect accommodations, amazing vacation spot!
We can not say enough about our amazing stay in this lovely condo! The location is everything we could have hoped for and more. It is a block and a half from the beautiful beach, only a short walk to the main shops and endless choice of restaurants right on 5th Avenue, and a 15 minute walk to the shops and restaurants on 3rd Street.
The condo was so perfect for myself and 2 best friends as we shared an extended weeks vacation here, for our "every two year" best friends get away. The rooms are well appointed, comfortable, tastefully decorated and charming. We all agreed it felt like home away from home! The condo is set in the center of the first floor and we were only steps out the front door to the pool, where we took a dip at least once everyday. Our first evening we prepared a wonderful meal and ate on the front patio of the building which is surrounded by a perfectly manicured hedge, and has umbrella tables, chairs and lounging chairs. It was perfection and again, we could not have felt more at home!
While we were here we enjoyed shopping on 3rd, we had our must have hot dog, incredible pickle and beer at the 'Ole Naples Pub, afternoon drinks at Tommy Bahamas and our farewell dinner at Campiello's. On 5th Ave we had a great meal at Vergina's where you can watch the world go by dining on their covered front outdoor terrace and we even did a bit of dancing after dinner.
Our trip was topped off by, a day out on a rented boat were we cruised the waters and went to Marco Island, an early morning hike through Corkscrew Swamp, and many days and sunsets at the beach.
Sarah who owns this condo, and the rental agency could not have been more helpful and kind in making our trip one we hope to do again soon, and we definitely would stay here again and again!
We are so happy that you enjoyed your time in Naples, Fl. We too enjoy renting a boat and getting out on the water; and then coming home to a nice meal on the terrace at The Fifth Avenue Beach Club. Please come back soon!
A rare find!
We've done beach vacations with VRBO/HomeAway/local agents many times. And it's always a gamble if we'll be happy with the accommodations--location...comfort... cleanliness...well-maintained. Well, this condo was a winner. The beach was a quick block and a half away. 5th Ave. restaurants and shops began a block in the opposite direction. And a less than 15 minute walk took us to coffee, brunch (Jane's on 3rd was delicious),
wine, and dinner (loved the grouper sandwich at Old Naples Pub) in historic 3rd street district. The condo itself was a perfect retreat after days at the beach or exploring SW Florida. It was light and bright, clean, and in great shape with all the conveniences of home.
We don't usually respond to surveys or write reviews, but this place was special. If you're planning to spend a week or more in Naples, you owe it to yourself to check out this condo.
We rented this condo and were floored by the cleanliness and convenience. The location is just a quick block and a half from the beach. We parked the car and did not move it for days. We walked every evening to dinner and ice cream. The location could not have been better.
This was our first time renting a Home Away / VRBO location. At first we were apprehensive having never used the site before. Susan contacted us within minutes and next thing you know we were booked. The condo was clean, well stocked with everything you could possibly need in a beach home. We cannot wait to go back!
We are so happy you enjoyed a great week at our home away from home. Enjoy the rest of your summer and we will look forward to having you back for another holiday.

Delightful Condo Near Everything!
What a beauty my wife and I, Seniors, were thrilled with your Apartment. Well furnished, everything worked beautifully, so clean and up to date. I have Back problems and the bed was perfect! Not my usual travel experience. The large screen Tvs were perfect as my wife could watch her shows and I had my own for sports!
We appreciated that we could walk out one way and stroll to the beautiful beach and the other to the finest restaurants in town. After the beach we enjoyed the shower and pool outside our unit. My wife loved to sit on the patio and read! The separate bedrooms are perfect for another couple or a family with children. Nice to have your own washer dryer to keep up with things. Can pack less when you stay here!
We will be back next year and will share our experience with our friends in Minnesota!
