Conveniently located in the heart of Naples, close to family-friendly activities, nightlife, public transport, the airport, and the city center. Only 1.5 miles from its most beautiful pristine beaches, this state-of-the-art SmartHome welcomes you through a gated courtyard with bubbling triple fountains recessed into marble decking. The sleek entry foyer leads past an elegant powder room to open-concept living space expressing the epitome of contemporary design and modern living. Every room features expansive impact-resistant glass with electric shades at each opening. Soaring 9 & 10 foot ceilings expand the light, bright spaces and contain recessed lighting and rope-lighted coves. Polished marble and stainless steel inserts accent the 24" x 24" porcelain floors while stainless steel interior doors with frosted glass provide a dramatic effect. The expansive marble breakfast bar separates the living room equipped with Sonos surround sound (use your SmartPhone to listen to your own personal music selections) and a 60' flat screen HD TV. The sleek fully-equipped kitchen is fitted with red high-gloss cabinetry and stainless steel LG appliances. Each of the two queen bedrooms features an ensuite polished marble bath fitted with luxury Kohler fixtures and a digital multi-head shower with body sprays. The den has a high-quality twin Murphy bed which augments the comfortable sleeping accommodations. A completely-fenced rear marble patio provides a quiet space for alfresco dining or relaxation around the 40' heated pool. An expansive sun shelf and the soothing sound of the arching deck jets enhance your outdoor experience. Black leather and chrome furnishings complete the dramatic effect of this luxurious private home.

Loved This Property!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from our July 4 week vacation in Naples. This house is gorgeous and had everything we wanted in a rental, and more! It was convenient to everything and everywhere in the Naples area. The landscaping is beautiful, and makes for a very private setting. Although the house is located in a subdivision, we never heard anything from the neighbors; we only heard the sounds of water from the fountains, and the chirping of birds! Once inside the house, or around the pool, you easily forget where you are; you probably won't want to leave!

The landlord answered all my questions before renting and stayed in touch in regard to our travel plans, arrival time, and directions. He met us when we arrived and gave us a tour of the property-lots of neat technological aspects that my husband loved. He also directed us to some fabulous restaurants. All in all, we had a great week! We hope to return soon!

annual vacation

  • 5 of 5

Many thanks for the use of this lovely home it has every home comfort you can think of just a couple of points we were constantly running out of hot water on an evening at shower time which resulted in a quick 2 minute shower for everyone also it is rather dark on an evening near the bar b que a little extra light would be good and i know its rarely needed but for us the weather was very poor and a small patio heater would have been more than welcome we did ask your agent about this but he said one was not available weather aside the home was perfect and i would not hesitate to use it in the future

Owner's Response: We're so sorry you had a problem with the hot water. The heater was inadvertently left in vacation mode after the prior tenants departed. We're glad you enjoyed your stay even though the weather was unseasonably cold. Thanks for the excellent review.

Ultimate Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Dear Arthur

With the attention to detail you have put in creating this home is nothing short of amazing. This has now become our favourite vacation home. From the multitude of lighting effects to the decor inside and out and the endless supply of uensils and beautiful appliances. The house was absolutely spotless . The pool is gorgeous and so private and quiet.

A special thank you to Nick and Jennifer for their kind and friendly help.

If we are able to get vacation time next year we would love to return.

Thank you

Mike and Marilyn

Sweet escape!

  • 5 of 5

This home was wonderful! We appreciated the beautifully appointed interior, modern and well-equipped kitchen, and secluded grounds with oversized pool. Loved the many upgrades; it was an oasis for our family. It was apparent the owner put a lot of thought into the home and wants visitors to enjoy themselves - and we certainly did!

Super house!

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful and we really loved our week there. Inside and outside top! We used the pool daily and had dinner at the house at least 4 times.

The only thing that was a bit disturbing for us was the very loud airconditioning. As Europeans we are not used to have airconditioning, and the one between the two bedrooms was very noisy. The first two nights, we woke up each time it turned on. No big deal, but worth mentioning...

A private 5 star retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This home could not have been more wonderful. The kitchen is incredible; we actually cooked in many nights because it was so easy and lovely. The pool is a spa-quality salt pool; it is relaxing and quiet. In the front of the house is a small, enclosed courtyard with a fountain and, when we were there, a wall of blooming jasmine. We did yoga out there each morning and it couldn't have been more wonderful. The neighborhood is very friendly, and we met many other dog-owners on walks in the morning and evening. In addition, the house is located incredibly conveniently to shopping, Whole Foods, many terrific restaurants, and Old Naples. We loved it and will be back for sure!
