What our party of 8 loved about Henry House:
Very inviting, comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. Easy walk to the beach. Close to shopping and restaurants. The high ceilings, the cool travertine floors and the large sets of glass sliding doors facing the pool made the house feel airy and light. Lots of different sitting areas to gather, eat and enjoy the company. The beds and sofas were comfortable. The pool area was a nice, fun and sunny focal point. The elegant formal sitting room and dining room did not get any use during our stay but was a nice ”wow”-factor each time we entered the house. The master bedroom was beautiful and had direct access to the pool area and was in its own wing of the house and very quiet. A second master with ensuite bath also faced the pool.
Minor things that didn’t bother us that much but could perhaps be an issue for others: 1) The kitchen cabinets and fridge were messy and not as clean as they should have been had they been thoroughly cleaned between guests. 2) The kitchen did not have enough pots and pans and the two frying pans that were there had deep scratches and patches of the non-stick surface completely worn off. 3) Many of the towels were frayed, washed out and worn thin. 4) The comforter on the queen-sized bed in the second master was also frayed and worn out. 5) The pool water was cold and the spa did not get warm enough for most of the family members to want to get in during the evening hours when it came on. The spa water was tepid only, not really warm enough to enjoy.
But none of these issues took away from the main impression: this is one of the nicest and most reasonably priced rentals our family has ever stayed in. We would love to come back and stay here if we go to Naples again!
Great house, wonderful location.
This was our third time staying at Henry House. We are a family of 7 and it has just the right amount of bedrooms and bathrooms and Henry House’s proximity to the gulf shore beach can’t be beat at just 6 blocks away. It’s also very close to downtown as well as the 3rd Ave shops and restaurants. We always cook Thanksgiving dinner during our stay and the kitchen is well stocked with the pots and pans and dishware we need to prepare enough food for ourselves as well as our invited guests for the meal. The weather has always been so perfect for us to eat and visit on the lanai. The pool and hot tub are often used during our stay although the water hasn’t been as warm as it should be.
We love visiting Naples and staying at Henry House. If there is one complaint it would be that the house is not very clean. Joe, I think your house cleaners are doing you a disservice. The house looks “surface clean” but there is a lot of grime and thick dust that becomes very apparent during our stay. The house needs a heavy duty overall cleaning, including the furniture where there is thick dust on the bed rails, etc.
Spacious, well-appointed home with pool, just minutes to the beach!
Our family of 5 had a wonderful stay here last week. Plenty of room to host cookouts and to have an overnight grandparent's visit. The kids swam in the pool everyday. The house is in great shape, close to the ocean and Olde Naples. It was a quiet area even given the proximity to the Naples hospital. We definitely would recommend it to friends. Thank you!
You are no min mansion...
It is difficult to know where to begin. First, I had to book it twice because if the owner doesn't respond within 24 hours you lose your booking. I was not notified that he had not responded. So, for a week or more had no idea it was not booked. This is, after it went through on my credit card. It was taken off and I had to repay it but noone told me, I had to call after looking at the dates again and realized our dates were not taken.
When we arrived we were a bit surprised about the description of a mini-mansion. It was, for the most part, clean. The kitchen, refrigrator, and pantry, however, were not. There was food left in the refrigerator, gross things left open in pantry, there was not one good dish cloth or towel. And the bath towels are the cheapest we had ever experience, even if it was an inexpensive hotel. There were two broken coffee pots and one we finally found that worked that we had to scrub clean.
There had been a bad review before we arrived and I called Joe to be sure all was fixed; wifi, heated pool, and hot tub. He assurred me everything was in fine working order. Well guess what? None of these worked. And, two sliding glass doors were broken and maintenance did come to repair. Honestly, that should not be our job on vacation.
It took several phone calls (more like a job than a vacation with girlfriends) to have the pool fixed, hot tub, etc. Joe promised to return several calls in an hour, I always had to call back and follow up. Finally we said we felt we were owed something just for the fact of what time this took away from our girl's week. Never once did he address this issue of any compensation. I explained to Joe about marketing this as a mini mansion when it was far from the truth. I tried to make him understand we don't want to complain but he was the one who told us all was working and it was NOT. Just not a good experience. There is even more, but what is the point really.
I am frustrated as I write this to think of the time it took to get things just okay. We would never, ever rent this property.
Nice, but need some touch ups.
We had a good time. The location is great, walking distance from the beach, neighborhood was peaceful. The property was comfortable for us, very especious. We had a few bumps during our stay, wiifii was not working, pool heater was not working either so water in the pool was very cold and uncomfortable to be in, the a/c in the master room was not working making the room hot, the ceiling fan saved us but is not the same.
Great Getaway Spot
Our family was fortunate to enjoy this beautiful home for a long weekend trip. The house was immaculate, with a very well-appointed kitchen and a great covered outdoor patio and pool. It is located in a very good location, close to the beach, fifth ave, and shopping. We especially enjoyed being able to bike or walk to the beach. This home is perfect for a large family vacation or just a couple looking for a fun weekend.
