Your vacation home away from home is an easy 15 minute walk to Vanderbilt Beach, features a private pool/spa, and is centrally located for all your vacation activities.
Built in 2012 with an open floor plan, 12 foot ceilings, and plantation shutters. The home features pocket sliding glass doors leading to a private, fenced yard with heated open air pool, attached spa, and covered lanai. The home was completely and tastefully furnished with a calming beach decor to make for a tranquil vacation retreat. It is professionally cleaned and impeccably maintained keeping the comfort of my guests in mind and has regularly scheduled lawn care, pool service and pest control. Best of all, it is a short 1/2 mile from the white sands and clear aquamarine water of Vanderbilt Beach. Close to the Ritz-Carlton, La Playa Beach Resort, Delnor-Wiggens State Park and the upscale Mercato dining and shopping pavilion. Grab the complimentary beach chairs, towels, umbrella, and coolers and either walk to or take a short drive to enjoy the day on one of the many local beaches. A State Park Beach Pass is available for your use which allows free entry into Delnor-Wiggens or Lover's Key State Park. (A $6.00/car savings.) Rent jet-skis, a boat, kayaks, or paddle boards and explore the Gulf of Mexico, soar above the ocean on a parasail, build sand castles, spend the day shelling or just sunbathe. Take in the sights, sounds, and smells of the salt water! Visit a near-by marina for a fishing charter or sunset cruise. Afterwards, enjoy the world-class shopping and dining all located within a few miles.
Shop for groceries at Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, and Publix all located within 1 1/2 miles of our home. Enjoy cooking in our gourmet well-equipped kitchen, grill poolside or pack a picnic for the beach.
After a day at the beach, The Mercato, a shopping & dining complex, is only 3 blocks away. Here, you can dine at the many restaurants and cafes, such as The Capital Grille, Naples Flatbread and Wine Bar, The Counter Burger, Chipotle , Bravo!, and AZN Azian Cuizine. Grab a coffee at The Second Cup, or dessert at Grace and Shelly's Cupcakes or Yogurbella. Enjoy dinner and a movie at the state of the art Silverspot Cinema. Have fun shopping at Nordstrom Rack, Tommy Bahama and Z Gallerie, among others, or linger over a cocktail at Blue Martini.
Less than 1 mile from our home, dine beachfront at The Turtle Club at The Vanderbilt Beach Resort, The Grill or Gumbo Limbo at the Ritz, or The Baleen at LaPlaya Beach Resort. (The Turtle Club is a great place to enjoy a cocktail as you watch the amazing sunsets.)
A short drive south on Tamiami brings you to up-scale shopping and restaurants at the Waterside Shops and The Villiage at Venetian Bay.
Continue Tamiami south to Olde Naples. Here you can spend an enjoyable evening strolling along Fifth Avenue South and 3rd Street South. You will find an irresistible mix of glamour and laid-back ease. This quaint area is packed with boutiques, restaurants, and nightclubs. Dine at the original Tommy Bahamas on charming historic 3rd Street South. Stroll along Fifth Avenue South and peruse the menus to choose your personal favorite! Don't forget to enjoy my favorite activity, people-watching! Stop by the famous Naples Pier, a community landmark since 1888, extending 1000 feet into the Gulf of Mexico.
Nearby, Tin City, is a fun eclectic place to visit. Originally a 1920's clam and oyster processing plant it is now home to 40 original boutiques and 2 great waterfront restaurants that are priced for families! For those who want to explore Naples waterways, Tin City is also home to several charter and tour boat companies.
From the house, drive north on Tamiami (Rt 41) to the outdoor mall in Estero, Coconut Point or for outlet shopping go to Miromar, an outlet shoppers' paradise with over 140 top designer and brand name stores.
Golfing is Naples specialty. Great golfing is not hard to find with over 25 public courses within a 20 minute drive.
