My husband and I definitely enjoyed our stay at this beautifully appointed Vanderbilt Bungalow home. The owner and staff are extremely friendly and accommodating (by getting back to you right away) with anything that you may need, or any questions that you have. The area is great for a bike ride or for walking. This is a newly remodeled house with very comfortable beds, top notch furnishings, a well stocked kitchen, beautiful bathrooms, bikes and a pool. The outdoor space is fabulous with a lanai and a screened in gazebo where we entertained guests after swimming in the pool, or in the evening for dinner. On cooler nights, we relaxed by the heat table. We were very impressed with the detail that was put into the house to make it both aesthetically pleasing and comfortable for a perfect stay. One of my top priorities is cleanliness and this house certainly met my expectations! We will definitely be staying here again when we come to Naples. Thank you, Debi and staff for everything! You were great hosts!
Sunny Palm Retreat
Perfect Covid Friendly Family Getaway
This house provided everything we needed and MORE for the perfect Covid friendly family getaway! The pictures here on vrbo, while inviting, do not do justice to the beautifully updated and decorated home. Contactless check-in was seamless. The moment we walked in I knew we had made a GREAT choice. Beautiful linens provided, well stocked kitchen with everything you need to cook family meals. Little touches like a bottle of wine and scented candles available made us feel so welcome. Communication with Debi was fantastic! We felt so well cared for!! The location was perfect. Quite neighborhood to go for walks. 25 mins to walk to Vanderbuilt Beach, which we enjoyed(towels, chairs, umbrella etc all stocked at the house!). Whole Foods and Trader Joe's minutes away. We easily ordered groceries from Shipt(Target & Publix) to the house too. Lots of great Covid friendly patios(eg. Tacos & Tequila, and Skillets), delivery and take out food options nearby. Getting away from the cold(home is in MN) and spending time with my family in the sunshine in this beautiful vacation home was the perfect way to escape! Thank you Debi!
April Break Vacation!
The house was amazing, clean, roomy and had all the beach/pool stuff we needed! Pool was clean and warm!
Beautiful 3 BR/2 Bath Pool Home
We had a lovely time at this beautiful property. Very clean, just renovated, everything is so fresh and bright. 9 min walking to the Beach. 5 min biking ( bikes and beach equipment are provided ). Wholefoods just a mile away. We were very happy with our choice!
One of our BEST vacations!
We LOVED our stay at The Sandy Starfish! The house was amazing - we loved the backyard pool, fire pit & grill. The walk to the beach was refreshing. Debi is a great host - her website is full of excellent local selections and she was very quick to respond to text messages. We loved her restaurant recommendations. (TurconTaco & Brooks Burgers we’re favorites) We were on vacation during Hurricane Elsa and Debi made sure we had flashlights, lanterns, and extra batteries. One of our first few nights we discovered the grill had an empty propane tank - her son had a new tank at the house within 15 mins! The kitchen is stocked with all the comforts of home. We also loved that bikes were included in the rental. We used them almost every day. I definitely recommend this property for families and we will be back.
The house was very close to the beach, walking distance. The house had everything we needed and more. The bikes and beach chairs were a big plus. Loved out stay here. I would definitely stay here again.
We had a great week at Starfish Cottage! Beautifully decorated and well kept home! Of all my Naples stays, this back yard was by far my favorite. The pool was amazing and the landscape beautiful! It is even better than the picture. Debi was quick to check in and address any possible concern. Look forward to our next trip!
The Beach Cottage
Home away from home!
Beautiful, well kept property. They were very responsive to any questions. Highly recommend!
We had a lovely month here. My husband and I enjoyed the location (easy walk to the beach) and the pool and hot tub. The property owner was very professional and attentive. We didn’t need to contact her much because the house had everything you could need - in perfect working order!
Gulf Coast Retreat
Home away from home
We spent almost 3 fabulous weeks here. The house is nicer than in the photos, beautifully decorated and so comfortable. Everything you need from beach towels to all the kitchen accessories. Our kids loved the pool. The communication with Debi was great, she kindly even had some groceries waiting for us which was so appreciated after a long flight from Europe. It was a home away from home and we hope to be back - thanks again for a lovely vacation!
Beautiful home, near beach and amenities
The house itself is very well appointed with beautiful tile floors and spacious rooms. Large flat screen TV's, sparkling pool, granite counter tops and newer appliances. Beds are comfortable and plush linens are provided. There is a newer gas grill in the screened in pool area with outdoor seating. The home is a 3 to 4 minute drive to Delnor Wiggins Pass State Park. Beautiful white sand beaches with bath houses and concessions. The owner is quick to respond to all questions you may have. We had a remarkable Peruvian dinner at Inca's Kitchen and awesome Italian dinner at Trattoria Abruzo, both within a 5 minute drive. There is a lot to do in North Naples. Don't miss out!
This place is fantastic!
What a beautiful place to stay this was! We all enjoyed it so very much! It was in very close proximity to the beach, which was exactly what we were looking for, as well as restaurants, shopping, the zoo and all the beauty of Naples! The owner Debi was very accommodating and helpful. Highly recommend staying here!
Very nice place!
We enjoyed our stay in Naples and at this property. This house is wonderful! It is large with plenty of space for six people. The house was clean and stocked when we came. From kitchen utensils to extra sheets and towels, to beach equipment, everything was there. The pool was nice as well and useful if you are expecting rain mid-day. The house is in a really nice location and on a quiet street, only a few minutes bike ride from the Vanderbilt beach. Grocery stores and shopping are also 5min away. Debra was helpful on arrival and we had no issues during our stay. We highly recommend this property especially for a family looking for some extra space and privacy at a reasonable cost.
The house is spacious, clean and well located.
