About the property

Home away from Home. Come relax and enjoy your vacation.

Tastefully furnished and beautifully landscaped waterfront pool home in the Vanderbilt Beach area. Home has a private heated pool, screened lanai, boat dock/deck and boat lift with water access to the Gulf of Mexico located on the canals of highly desirable Vanderbilt Beach. Close to the Ritz Carlton and La Playa Beach Resort, Delnor-Wiggins State Park and upscale Mercato shopping and dining pavilion. Amenities include kayaks, bikes, beach gear, fishing gear, pool floats and much more. Grab the complementary beach chairs, towels and cooler and head to the beach for a day of shelling or lounging.

The house has an open floor plan with galley style kitchen. The front foyer enters into the travertine tiled great room and dining area with views of the lanai, pool area, dock and canal. The sliding glass doors open the full length of the great room into the screened lanai where you can BBQ your favorites on the Weber gas grill. The split plan layout provides a master bedroom on one side complete with newly remodeled en-suite bath, wood flooring, walk-in closet and a luxurious king poster bed and french doors opening onto the lanai. The additional two bedrooms are located on the opposite side of the great room and are separated by another full bathroom. Each of the bedrooms has wood flooring and each are fully furnished with queen bed, towels, linens, etc. The house is located on a quiet cul de sac street and is equipped with washer/dryer, cooled by central air conditioning and has a ceiling fan in each bedroom with an additional 3 ceiling fans to cool you while you relax on the covered lanai. Lanai and pool have sought after southern exposure so the pool remains in the sun during the day.

Bike or walk to the beach or relax by the pool. Vanderbilt Beach is a 5 minute bike ride or hop in the car for a short ride to Bonita Beach. Both beaches have several dining choices and a plethora of activities to choose from. Rent a paddleboat, jetskis or wakeboard or float above the ocean on a parasail adventure. Rent a boat and explore the Gulf of Mexico or idle through the mangrove backwaters where you will likely see dolphin, birds, fish and manatee. Stroll down beautiful 5th Avenue in downtown Naples for some of the most exclusive and unique shopping and dining in Southwest Florida.

Most importantly, the house and property are impeccably maintained with proper maintenance and thoroughly cleaned after each guest. You will find all areas of the house thoughtfully cleaned with your comfort in mind and the beds freshly made. The house has regularly scheduled pool service, lawn service and professional pest control. All pictures are current as of May 2013. This house has everything you need to begin your stay in sunny Floridian paradise.

About Doug Ostergaard

Welcome to our home, we hope you enjoy your stay. We are originally from Denver, Colorado but moved to Naples as full time residents to enjoy all that Naples and Southwest Florida have to offer.

Doug Ostergaard purchased this house in 2009

Why Doug Ostergaard chose Naples

We purchased our home after our first visit to Naples because we loved the look and feel of the area so much. We love the resort feeling atmosphere of Naples and enjoy all the dining, shopping and activities that you might find in a larger city. The area is full of lush and well maintained landscaping and provides a walkability factor of 10 in our opinion.

What makes this house unique

Our purchase of a home in Vanderbilt Beach was the perfect location for us as it is close to all the things we love to do - especially be by the water!! We love to jump in the pool, have a cocktail and watch the tide ebb and flow in the canal and an occasional dolphin cruising by.

Perfect Vacation Rental!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this property. The location was great and water access from the dock was awesome. The property was exactly as described and in excellent condition. We did visit the beach, but spent the majority of our time in the pool and on the dock and rarely even left the property. Doug is very responsive and pleasant to work with. Would definitely stay again.

Pristine property in great neighborhood, with dock and pool - loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We came to visit some friends that live in Naples with our 3 year old girl and everyone loved this place. Immaculately clean, and appointed with everything you could need.

Our daughter learned to swim on her own in this fantastic pool. We used the BBQ one night for a great dinner in the screened in outdoor space. We didn't utilize the dock, but it was fun to look over and see the fish swimming and jumping.

The place was quite, safe and private. Great kitchen, both bathrooms spotless and well furnished and planned out. We will be back next year.

Perfect Home and location for a nice family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for my family vacation. The house was very comfortable and the owners took very good care of our needs. The pool and yard were perfect. I would recommend this property to anyone.

Beautiful home, very clean, everything we needed for our Christmas stay

  • 5 of 5

Excellent communication by Doug starting with our first communication about 11 months before our actual stay. The home itself is nicely appointed with updated fixtures in the bathrooms, beautiful shower and flooring in the master, and sparkling clean amenities throughout.

I can’t say enough about how much we loved this house! We were 2 adult couples spending Christmas over the course of 4 nights here, and enjoyed daily relaxation in the pool, the hot tub, and out on the dock.

The kitchen was stocked with anything and everything a person could need, except the food! There were many seasonings available, however. There is a nearby Trader Joe’s, Publix, and Whole Foods for any necessary grocery shopping, and the proximity to 5th Avenue wasn’t bad either…about a 15-20 minute drive. The Mercado is very close and was a $7 Uber ride each time.

Bicycles were available for our use, but we never got around to using them. They appeared in good condition, however. We DID use the kayaks for some floating time out in the water, but overall, this was truly a Christmas getaway just for relaxing in a safe, comfortable home.

Wifi at this home was very fast. I had to work remotely for part of our stay and I didn’t miss a beat. Thank you for that!

We pick different destinations each Christmas, but if we ever decide to stay in Naples again, we are not looking around. We are contacting Doug and hoping to stay here again!
