Our home is only 3.4 miles - about 7 car minutes - away from Naples' beautiful sandy beach.
The Private Suite consists of a large Master bedroom with king-size bed and Eco-mattress, a private bathroom with a carbon filter in the shower, a walk-in closet and a private lanai (covered patio). It also has its own private entrance from the garden.
Our home is a place where you can relax after your outdoor adventures, a place to find peace and enjoy the evening inside the house or outside on your private lanai or on the balcony upstairs, watching the beautiful night sky. The house is situated in a small safe neighborhood away from the busy life, yet close enough to access all interesting places (including the beach) within 15 minutes driving.
All rooms are equipped with a beautiful wood floor that creates a homely atmosphere.
The large sun-flooded living room - with open floor plan to the kitchen - is a great place to hang out and relax. It is equipped with a Cable TV. There is also a piano which you are welcome to play.
A tiny balcony - just large enough for a breakfast for two - allows you to enjoy the beautiful Floridian nature while sipping your morning coffee.
In front of your bedroom is your private lanai (a covered sitting area). This is a calm, meditative space where you are sitting in the garden - but being protected from the strong sun. It is a beautiful space, specifically in the afternoon or early evening for reading a book or having a cup of coffee or a glass of wine.
You have full access to the living room with Cable TV and to our kitchen which is modern, spacious with granite counter top. It opens to the dining area and to the living room. The kitchen is equipped with a large fridge - where you will have a space available to store your groceries, a stove/oven, microwave, and dishwasher. It also has a water filter which saves you the purchase of bottled water.
We don't provide washer or dryer. However, a laundry-mat is only two streets away on 3270 Bayshore Drive.
Interaction with guests
I live in the house and have an office on the second floor. I work from home. So during the day, I will be in the house most of the time. I am happy to give you information or suggestions where to go or what to do in Naples and I am up for a chat. At the same time, I totally respect your privacy and understand if you would just like to stay quiet.
Other things to note
Bed linen, towels, beach towels - always freshly washed-, beach chairs, beach umbrella and beach toys for the little ones are provided. You just have to bring your swimming dress, sunglasses and perhaps some sunscreen.
The price you pay with AirBnB includes the 11% Tourist tax that every person visiting Naples has to pay. (Hotels charge this on top of your bill - this tax is already included in your AirBnB payment).
It is very important to me that my guests are happy and have the most pleasant stay in my home. So please let me know if there is anything which you are missing or which is not to your full satisfaction. Let me know right away so that I can remedy it.
This is a joyful house. We'd like you to be happy and to feel at home. If you miss anything, please let us know immediately so that we can remedy it during your stay!!!
Some simple guidelines:
To keep our space clean, we leave our shoes at the entrance and walk barefoot, in socks or in slippers. We also shake out beach towels, shoes, parasol outside the house so that the sand is not carried into the house.
OVERNIGHT STAY is only permitted for those who have booked with us.
SMOKING is allowed only on the balcony or in spaces outside of the house. For security reasons, NO OPEN FIRE throughout the entire house, no candles or incense. Thank you for your understanding.
From 10 pm till 7 am, please be quiet. If you want to watch TV after 10 pm, please keep the volume down. And thank you for that.
