Here are a few of their comments about our property to add to the reviews you will see on this listing.

Their comments include :

'My wife and I have rented through VRBO a number of times, including homes in California, Arizona and Florida. This North Naples property is far and away the most carefully designed and elegantly appointed home that we have so far been fortunate enough to borrow for a time.'

'Every detail of the house was designed with great care using the highest quality materials.'

'i'm always a little leery of fluff when it comes to online listings, but rest assured that this one is not fluff. This property is as amazing as it sounds and looks, and even better in a lot of ways.'

About Barb Kennedy

Charles Kennedy is President/CEO of Kennedy, a visionary home design and development company in Naples, Florida and Aspen, Colorado.

Founded by Charles in 1996, the firm occupies a unique niche in the luxury real estate market where it is known for its uncompromising commitment to imbuing each property with quintessential details in design and construction.

Charles’ impeccable taste, keen eye for development opportunities, and architectural sensibility are unequaled. Most would agree that his creative thinking is an anomaly in the real estate industry.

In 2005, Charles completely updated, remodeled, and richly landscaped a small home in Naples, Florida which was subsequently featured in the Naples Daily News. This led him to expand his vision and partner with his sister, Barb Kennedy, to create more of these tropical oases for others to enjoy. Our 'garden beach bungalows' are inspired sanctuaries and ideal retreats from the cold.

Barb Kennedy purchased this house in 2005

Perfect Home Near Best Beaches

  • 5 of 5

Our month long stay was perfect. This beautiful house has everything - open living areas were perfect for dinners in the lanai, and all the rooms have upscale finishes and art work. Bikes, beach and pool chairs/towels/toys made relaxing easy. The location of this home was really great too! It's close to the entrance Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park and Vanderbilt Beach our favorite beach bar none. It was a short drive or bike ride to all the best restaurants, hotels, shops you could want to visit. We are staying here again next year.

Absolutely Top Notch

  • 5 of 5

There are not enough good things I can say about this cottage. From the attentiveness of the owner to the finish out of the house - everything was outstanding. As an interior designer, I can personally attest to how beautifully the house was appointed. The beds AND bedding were lovely and very comfortable, and the house was very well stocked especially for a rental property. The options of items to take to the beach were the best I have seen. We spent much time in the pool and spa in the afternoon and on the wonderful back patio with the screen down in the evening. Ample closet space and the house was very sound proof. If you are looking for a place to stay, do not pass this one up. It is a gem and very close to conveniences such as the grocery store and restaurants but still very quiet. You actually felt secluded when you were in the house. I loved it so much that I asked for the paint color and found out who made the sofa. I used both in the addition to our home this past year!

Beautiful vacation getaway with all the amenities!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a month at this beautiful residence for our winter getaway. The home is gorgeous and beautifully decorated. The kitchen came fully stocked with everything you would need, just like home. We found the home to be well maintained and very clean which is really important to us. It was just as the photos displayed! Barb is very pleasant to deal with and so accommodating; even allowed us an early check in as we arrived several hours earlier than expected. Any minor issues we had she addressed quickly and is very responsive. We couldn't have been more pleased with the outdoor ambiance.....very ZEN, soothing and beautifully landscaped. The pool is wonderful and the waterfall made for a very relaxing environment; a great outdoor nap every afternoon! Just a wonderful stay and experience!! We look forward to visiting this home again!

first class...Peter S.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in a number of properties in Naples Park and this is by far the best. The owners attention to detail inside and out provided a most enjoyable stay that we would recommend to anyone. We normally never leave a review but felt this property merited comment. We hope this property will be available the next time we return to Naples.

Professional letting - first class service!

  • 5 of 5

From the start Barb was very professional and extremely helpful.

On our day of arrival Barb met us to walk us through this beautiful bungalow and all it has to offer, providing advice on the local area and Naples, offering to be our first point of contact should we require anything. As it turned out there were no issues as everything is clearly labelled and all worked perfectly.

We made use of the pool and beach equipment which is available for all to use in the garage – nice touch!

We are a family of five - three boys - great location!

This place is so comfortable that we all agreed to split our days between relaxing at home and heading out to visit the many sites Naples has to offer.

Highly recommended are the great beaches (Delnor-Wiggins is a must), Tin City, the harbour, 5th Ave & 3rs St South, Mercato, Mirromow Outlet, the Everglades and a trip to Miami and Fort Myers. Plenty of places to eat, shop, explore and relax.

We have been back home now for two weeks and still struggling to adjust as this holiday was by far our best. We all agree that this bungalow was a perfect choice and definitely a home from home.

Highly recommended! We would love to come back!

Luxurious living in Naples!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home in Naples Park. All newly redecorated, very spa like. Bathrobes, slippers, and bikes provided. Kitchen is beautifully decorated. Any desirable channel available for tv/movie buffs. Backyard is very private, beautiful pool, hot tub, grill and wonderful (retractable screen) lanai. Fenced in back yard provided privacy, and safety for dogs. Lovely front yard area with fountain, lovely as well to sit by. Quiet neighborhood, walkable to beach. Would relish any time here again!
