About Lindsay Gillespie

It's every northerner's dream to retire in the sunny south, so with retirement from a career in the music industry looming I took the opportunity to fulfill that dream and buy a place in beautiful Naples. Being Canadian, though, I am limited in the number of days I can enjoy it, so I choose to make the house available to visitors from around the world. Travellers from the US, Canada, Argentina, Germany, Spain and other countries have all enjoyed staying there, with many guests returning year after year.

Lindsay Gillespie purchased this house in 2008

Why Lindsay Gillespie chose Vanderbilt Beach

Florida is all about water and beaches. One of Naples' best beaches, Vanderbilt Beach, is just a short drive or bicycle ride away, with no major roads to cross to get there. Also, the Mercato shopping, dining, movie and nightclub hub is just minutes away. A little further down the road is downtown Naples with it's famous 5th Avenue and 3rd Street dining areas.

What makes this house unique

One of the best features of my house is the enclosed courtyard. Entirely under screened lanai, the courtyard surrounds the pool and patio and ensures absolute privacy, and when the temperature is not too hot, opening the french doors onto the patio nearly doubles the size of the house.

Beautifully decorated, fully equipped. This place spoiled us for other locations.

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our short visit here, would have loved to stay longer or returned for a month next year but other people have already recognized how nice this place is. The only improvement that I would like to see is a King size bed in the master. Loved the private secluded courtyard and small pool. It was perfect for collecting the sun and then cooling off.

We will try to return as soon as we can.

Don’t miss the Deep Lagoon Seafood restaurant nearby.

Fantastic Property, Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

I had some family members from the U.K visiting for 2 weeks and they absolutely loved the property, the location, and everything that the house had to offer. I would highly recommend staying here if you plan on visiting Naples. We will definitely stay at this property again when more family visit.
