About the property

Bungalow on the water, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Newly remodeled downstairs apartment. Lush tropical setting on a large corner lot literally surrounded by water. Only minutes from downtown Naples, exclusive shops of Fifth Avenue South, Third Street South, and quaint shops of Tin City Market Place. Beautiful Naples Botanical Gardens is only 1.5 mi. away.

Relaxing is easy in this living space as the home is a cozy oasis with wide-open views which overlook palm trees and other Florida native plants. As you can see by the photos, you are surrounded by mangroves, nature and you have direct access to the Gulf of Mexico. A boat dock and fish cleaning station on site for your use.

This Oasis awaits you if you are looking for a secluded location only minutes from civilization. Whether you fish or not....whether you boat or not, just come to relax.

About The Owner

Being raised in Michigan I have always had a passion for boating and being on the water. At the same time, I love to share this lil' utopia with others - allowing them to have the vacation of their dreams.

The Owner purchased this house in 2003

Why The Owner chose Naples

Prior to purchasing this property I owned an island house which one could only get to by boat. The moment I saw this property I had to have it! It has that same island feel however much more practical. My friends call it, 'Kate's lil' spot of paradise,' and that it truly is!

Nice Surprise

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this place was a "nice surprise". The apartment sits on the ground floor of Kate's house but is completely private. It has it's own entrance and its own garage stall. The apartment itself is a one bedroom layout. But right outside is a screened in porch that runs the whole length of the house creating a feeling of much more room. Outside the porch is a large area that has has been nicely gardened with sitting areas. There is also a private dock with several sitting areas. We watched boats go by on the canal night and day. The effect of this is that you feel you have a lot of privacy and a lot of space. The apartment is spotless and has everything you could need. All the furniture is in good repair. There are little extras such as night lights and labels on the wall switches.

All the equipment you need for going to the beach is there. Again, everything is in good condition. We will stay here again.

t was everything we were looking for.

  • 5 of 5

For us, it was a little slice of heaven. The location was perfect - quiet, on a creek, many birds, beautiful landscaping, very clean. The owner is lovely - she is available but not intrusive. She met us with a plate of cheese and crackers and fruit. How thoughtful is that? Would love to come again.

Beyond expectations

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely beautiful. If you rent this place you will not be disappointed. The inside was very clean and perfect for a couple and their dog. The outside was like an oasis, very peaceful and relaxing.

Kate thought of everything you might need. Probably the most well equipped place we ever stayed in. We would definitely come back.
