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 Florida South West

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!

Couldn't have asked for more!

  • 5 of 5

Kate's place is exactly as advertised. My husband and I were blown away with how well Kate maintains this property. The apartment itself was absolutely spotless and fully equipped for our week long stay. Kate includes thing that many rentals don't such as insect repellant, bar soap, cotton swabs, air freshener for the bathroom, plastic storage bags in every possible size, spices, name brand tissues, toilet paper and paper towels, coolers, beach towels, beach umbrellas, fishing tackle, and more! The grounds are absolutely beautiful, the pictures don't do it justice. Kate greeted us on the first day, gave us a tour of the property then left us to enjoy our vacation. We occasionally heard muffled sounds from her home upstairs, but nothing that bothered us in any way. It was reassuring to know that had anything gone wrong with the rental, that Kate was right there. The creek and the wildlife around us provided much entertainment. We saw multiple manatees one evening right next to the dock and an 8 foot alligator early one morning. (Don't swim in the creek!) We used the kayaks and spent hours fishing (caught mostly catfish, but plenty of them) and observing the wildlife. This was by far the best rental experience we have had. The only thing that would have made it any better was if we had a boat at our disposal as the gulf was a very long paddle away. We have already recommended Kate's place to friends and plan to return ourselves as soon as possible.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your generous review! I am thrilled that you were "blown away" by your stay! I want my guests to feel as though they are coming home while on vacation. Please know it is extremely rare to spot an alligator in these salty waters as they prefer fresh water habitats. Nevertheless, I would recommend that swimming be enjoyed at one of our gorgeous beaches or you may want to take advantage of one of the many boat rental options available nearby. Again, thank you for taking the time to review your stay. I hope to welcome you back soon!

Peaceful oasis

  • 5 of 5

Kate's place is pristine. She has thought of everything right down to a yummy welcoming tray with little homemade key lime pies!

Our recommendation: if this place is available, BOOK IT!

Phenomenal Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We have been traveling to Naples for over 20 years staying with friends, and at other VRBO's. This was our second year staying 2 weeks at Kate's Place! What a hidden gem, truly our favorite place to stay on vacation!! It's top quality, very comfortable, gorgeous flower gardens, with amazing water views!! It is so peaceful, with several places to sit and enjoy the wildlife and watch boats go by! Kate is a gracious host, we look forward to our next stay at Kate's Place. Thank you for fabulous hospitality Kate!! Lisa and Wayne Jacques

A Hidden Gem

  • 4 of 5

My daughter and I stayed at Kate's place for a week in April and couldn't have been more happy. The accommodations were clean, and had everything possible we could need. The setting is quiet and ideal for "downtime" or jumping in the kayak for a morning exploration. If you're looking for privacy, the setting is tucked away... but since Kate occupies the floor above, you will notice her moving about, which for me was comforting but if you're looking for a romantic get away then you might want to choose a property that is not owner occupied. Our time there was a real treat for quality Mother/Daughter vacation. We enjoyed getting to know the owner, who is a pure delight!
