Southern Exposure!!!!!!!!

Walk to Vanderbilt Beach or Wiggins State Park Beach!

To book it, email owner for rates and availability.

Just a short walk or bike ride to Wiggins State Park Beach and Vanderbilt Beach, this 3 bedroom, 2 bath, 2000 square foot, Tommy Bahama style updated home is nestled on a canal with SOUTHERN EXPOSURE that affords you year- round maximum sunshine. The ranch home is handicapped friendly and is located halfway down a street (not at the east end of the waterway called the coconut catcher where the wind blows the debris in front of the property) far away from road or foot traffic. No road noise or gawkers.

Once the double sliding door walls open onto the large covered Lanai, the interior transforms into an outdoor oasis with a 36 ft pool and jetted spa that is warmed up by a large commercial heater. The entire home is hardwood and tile that makes it easy to clean and ward off allergens. The good sized granite and stainless gourmet kitchen, fully equipped, allows you to interact with your family and guests in the home and on the lanai as you prepare your favorite meals.

Internet and WiFi Access as well as 3 TVs allow you to stay connected to the world if you are so inclined to do so. If not, you have use of the boat lift and dock that take you directly into the Gulf of Mexico. Additionally, you have access to 5 new bikes, beach chairs, beach umbrella, fishing poles, a variety of pool toys, and a Vanderbilt Beach and all Collier County beach Parking Pass.

The master suite is separated by the open living area for privacy but also opens onto the lanai. On the opposite side of the house, there is one room with two twin beds and another with a queen. All of the furnishings are smart and transport you away from the hustle and bustle and to the tranquility of the South Florida lifestyle.

Everyone loves luxury bathrooms. The two bathrooms have double granite sinks and state of the art fixtures. The master has a huge beautifully tiled shower with floor to ceiling glass doors. The second bathroom that accommodates the other 2 bedrooms has a gigantic soaking tub with two huge glass doors.

In lieu of staying at the Ritz Carlton or the La Playa resort, you can enjoy their restaurants but still savor the peace and quiet that a neighborhood home offers. You are only a 5 minute drive to the hip Mercato Plaza with plenty of popular shops and restaurants. Furthermore, you are close to The Children’s Museum, The Sun and Fun Lagoon Water Park, and grocery shopping. The house is only a 25 minute drive from the Fort Myers Airport and offers a multitude of conveniences.

If you are interested in vacationing in paradise, e-mail Tony for seasonal rates.

What makes this house unique

Guestbook comments from the owner

Review Carolyn from Chicago

Our family of 5 has been vacationing in Naples for years. Over the years, we have stayed in several very nice condos. We decided to look into renting a home for the first time this April because we needed more space. Taking the elevator up and with five people was just becoming a chore.

We absolutely loved our stay in Tony’s home. The house was beautifully lit and we left the lanai doors and windows open the entire time. Usually, I clean when I stay someplace new, however everything was so tidy and looked so clean that I didn't feel like I had to do any work. I am very particular about my bed and bedding and loved the comfortable bed. I also felt that the linens were clean enough so that I didn’t have to wash them again. I am always cold and even used an extra down comforter that Tony had in one of the guest bedrooms. The bathrooms had plenty of room for storage and were top notch.

Our family used the pool and hot tub every day. I like the water really warm and my husband was able to control the heater with directions that Tony provided in a welcome binder. I was really excited this time because the condo pools were never warm enough for me in the evenings. I also liked having the pool cage which kept the children contained on the Lanai and not near the edge of the canal. Watching the kids was easy due to the open floor plan.

The location couldn’t have been any better. It was really quiet and we never heard the neighbors. We liked spending time at both Wiggins and Vanderbilt Beach. Just across from the Vanderbilt Beach entrance was an outdoor restaurant called The Beach Box Cafe with really delicious and inexpensive food. The maple bacon donuts and the reubens were to die for. However, we spent most of our time at the house making our own meals.

We really enjoyed the privacy and luxury of staying in a home as opposed to a condo or hotel. Tony’s home was always bright and perfect for a family vacation. My only advise to you would be to stay longer than a week! We will definitely be back.

Good location, nice pool

  • 3 of 5

We rented the house for 4th of July weekend and overall it was o.k.. Unfortunately when we stayed there there was an AC leak and for the 3 days and nights we had water dripping from the ceiling. Also, there was ant infestation in the kitchen and 3 out of 5 bikes were not usable. The owner Tony was apologetic but some of the things like bikes / ants can be prevented and when I spent $$$ I want to enjoy my time with family and not worry about ants getting into my food or wet towels all over the floor due to water dripping from the ceiling. Anyway, the pool and outside patio were very beautiful and we enjoyed our time outdoors. Also the house is located very close to the beach which is convenient.

Owner's Response: Sorry about the AC leak, as soon as you made me aware of it, I had two men there to fix it. As you know, if you are a homeowner, sometimes things break. I have contractors on standby to fix any issue ASAP. Typically I rent by the week so your short stay over a holiday was affected, sorry. In South Florida, there is no winter to kill off critters. If you leave food out in the kitchen or drop crumbs on the floor, you will get ants. The home is sprayed monthly for insects and I've never seen one there. Many tenants come from up north and are not used to this. Keep the food in the frig and you will not have ants. Bikes are serviced regularly. In the garage there are spare tubes and a pump. Occasionally a flat tire may need fixing. It's simple. If I'm made aware of it, I can send someone over. Your short stay over a holiday weekend for a 3 bedroom home, with private pool and spa on the water was $ not $$$.

Very Enjoyable Week in Naples

  • 5 of 5

The home was just as advertised and with a family of varying ages we spent a lot of time enjoying the pool, hot tub, and enclosed outdoor area. The beach is only a mile away and parking passes, beach chairs, several umbrellas and even a cooler were available for us to use. Check in and out was simple and quick and Tony was available via email to answer your questions. If returning to Naples in the future, I would book this place again.
