Welcome to 'Fun in the Sun.ca'. This cheerfully decorated vacation villa awaits your arrival. It has all the ingredients you will need for a memorable Southwest Florida vacation. A Great House and Great Location!
The House has just been fully renovated and beautifully decorated in a cheerful blend of tropical and seaside decor. The atmosphere is casual and relaxed. This very spacious Bungalow sits on a double-wide lot with lots of room to move both inside and out.
The south-facing Backyard is fully fenced and private. The large covered Lanai has ample seating, a propane BBQ for outdoor grilling and overlooks the heated Pool with waterfall and swim-up seating.
Our split-plan House is divided into 3 zones:
The heart of the House has the entrance Foyer, a Dining room and Living room. The Dining room is steps from the Kitchen with an extendable table that seats up to 8. The spacious sunken Living room has a wall-mounted 55'' 3D LG TV (with 3D glasses for 8) and a 3D Blu-Ray player. There are lots of movies, books, puzzles and games for your entertainment. The Living room also has a Queen sleeper sofa and a 12 foot sliding door that opens onto the Lanai.
To one side of the House there are 2 Bedrooms and a 3 piece Guest Bath. One room has a Queen bed with double closets, wall-mounted 32'' TV/DVD and a sliding door out to the Lanai. The other room has a Twin and Double bed, standard closet and wall-mounted 29'' TV/DVD.
To the other side of the House lies a very spacious open-concept Kitchen, Breakfast, Family area and the Master suite. The fully equipped Kitchen is a cook's delight with wood cabinets, stainless steel appliances, granite counters with a breakfast bar for 4, and a large sliding pass-through to the Lanai and BBQ. The Breakfast area is a great spot for a quick bite to eat or a rousing game of cards. The Family room is a nice quiet area for reading or napping and has an oversized desk for your computer or current project. This area also has a sliding glass door to the Lanai and overlooks the Pool. The Master suite has a King bed, wall mounted 42'' TV with DVD player, a private 3-piece Master Bathroom and a walk-in closet with a standard hotel security safe.
The House has an attached two car Garage with full Laundry facilities and a double driveway that will easily park 4 cars for your convenience.
We also offer the use of 4 adult cruiser bikes, an assortment of beach chairs and towels, a cooler and umbrella for those long days at the beach.
Choosing to stay at 'Fun in the Sun' puts you almost in the middle of Naples Park. Once you are in 'The Park' you are extremely well-located to all the amenities Naples has to offer.
Our home sits between two world class Beaches: Vanderbilt Public Beach has been voted one of the top ten in the country and has a large public parking garage. Delnor Wiggins State Park is one of the most popular seaside destinations in Naples. A 166 acre park that is considered a tropical paradise for beach lovers, boaters, divers and fisherman. Your rental includes a Family Park Pass for Delnor Wiggins so you can take all the necessities for a day at the beach and park for free anytime. Both beaches are minutes away by bike or car. The sunsets are especially spectacular!
Fabulous shopping and dining can be found just a few blocks inland at the ever-expanding Mercato. It is so close you can walk, bike or drive. It has a Whole Foods and Silver Spot Cinemas plus many wonderful shops and restaurants for you to enjoy. Other places to check out are: The Waterside Shops, The Venetian Bay Shops, Fifth Avenue South and Third Street South. All are within a 10-15 minute drive.
Considering the exceptional year round weather in Naples it is not surprising that so many outdoor activities are available. Visitors can bike, beachcomb, kayak, canoe, sail, kite, deep-sea fish, play tennis or golf.
As for Golf - Naples has more golf courses per person than anywhere else in the world! Many of the courses have been designed to meet the exacting specifications of professional golfers. In addition many PGA tournaments are held here throughout the year.
For a taste of culture there is always a trip to 'Artis-Naples'. A performing and visual arts centre showcasing the Naples Philharmonic Orchestra and Baker Museum.
And for the little ones a trip to Naples Zoo and Caribbean Gardens is a sure hit.
Our Guest Book will provide information on the house and all the best local attractions. There are so many things to see and do for both young and old in Naples.
Thank you for your consideration. Please email or call if you have any questions before booking your vacation with us.

My Husband and I are both from Toronto and were looking for a warm and sunny place near the Gulf beach to escape the Canadian winter: Naples is the southernmost city on the Gulf side of Florida offering spectacular sunsets, beautiful beaches and wonderful dining.
Nancy purchased this House in 2013
Why Nancy chose Vanderbilt Beach
We fell in love with Naples Park because of its easy access to so many amenities. We can bicycle to so many things! The street we live on has a real sense of community. It is quiet, safe and our neighbours are fantastic!
What makes this House unique
After looking at many, many properties in 'The Park' we chose this one because of the double wide south-facing backyard, split floor plan, multiple living and dining areas and space, space, space.

Beautiful House ~ Wonderful Vacation!
This is by far one of the best houses we have stayed for vacation. Loved the layout - just perfect! Several friends were also vacationing in Naples at the same time and our vacation spot was the gathering place. Super clean, walking and/or biking distance to Vanderbilt beach and all in all an absolute awesome place and experience! Close to plenty of shopping and restaurants.
We were greeted within minutes by the property manager and appreciated her excitement for us to be there. We greatly appreciated the welcome binder which had everything and anything to know about house and area. Nancy - thank you for opening your home to us - we will be back!!!
Paradise in North Naples
What a pleasure to stay in such a well cared-for home while vacationing! My family and I enjoy FL in the winter and have been visiting for several years - this is by far the most maintained and attractive rental we have stayed in. The home looks out to a stunning pool and well landscaped lawn. The rooms are furnished beautifully; all include Pottery Barn linens and comfortable beds in generously sized rooms. Everything in the house is of top quality - whether it was the bikes, laundry, pool, etc. A family can just move in and start enjoying vacation. I felt safe, warm and very at home here. I almost don't want to share but I have too much respect for the level of work and care the owners have put into their home not to review the residence.
This was our first time staying at Fun in the Sun. Our two week stay was truly a 5 star experience.
The home was beautifully furnished, spotlessly clean and it's location was perfect . This property is located in a very nice neighborhood and within a mile of beautiful beaches. The ammenities in the home were above and beyond and greatly appreciated. We cannot wait to return to the Fun in the Sun home for our next Naples vacation. Thank you to the owner's and the Property Manager for making our vacation a perfect event!
Perfect family vacation in this wonderful and well-maintained house
We (2 adults plus one 4-year-old) spent two weeks in this beautiful vacation home in Naples Park in April/May 2017. We already spent a vacation in this very same house two years before and had such a wonderful time back then, so that we decided to come back. While planning for this current vacation we weren't sure if the two years in between may have affected the house with guests coming and leaving. On our arrival, we were delighted to see how well-maintained, -equipped and organized the house was. Refurbishments were done and additional furniture (e.g. sunbeds and a garden swing) were added. The cleaning staff did a fantastic job, everything was clean and in perfect condition. The house is very spacious and offers everything you could ever think of (e.g. cooking- and baking-ware, books, DVDs, puzzles and so on). The house had already been perfect in 2015 and was even better this time. The property manager stopped by for a chat shortly after our arrival and she was very helpful and friendly.
We made daily use of the beach equipment with beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers, boogie boards, etc. Our son was once again thrilled by the big variety of sand toys. The Delnor-Wiggins State Park Pass was very much appreciated by us as well. We saw dolphins swimming close to the beach, watched numerous pelicans and sea eagles hunting for fish. Ghost Crabs came out of their holes right next to your beach chairs and tortoises visited on their way through the dunes.
Besides enjoying the beach or taking a dip in the big refreshing private pool, there is a lot to do in Naples and around. Grocery stores (e.g. Publix, Walmart, Whole Foods) and fabulous restaurants are close by. The Miromar Outlets are just a 30 min drive away and there are various options for shopping in downtown Naples. And not to forget about Naples Zoo which is worth a visit (or two...). :-)
So, we can really only repeat what we wrote in our review in 2015: In case we should return to Naples (which is very likely) there is no other place we’d rather want to be!
Thank you Nancy and Ken for having us at your wonderful vacation home!
A lovely house in a tranquil neighborhood
Very conveniently located, just a short ride from the beach. Fully equipped with all you might need during your stay. Very practical, yet elegant layout of the interiors. We have had great time and would love to return...
This house was ideal for us. Clean and spacious plus a lovely pool. The location is excellent, close to shops and a beautiful beach. The owners are also very easy to deal with. We hope to return next year
