"Get away from it all!" at this very special property that features serene waterfalls, water gardens, large heated pool. This home is a two story, spacious and well appointed. If you enjoy nature, water gardens, generous heated swimming pool, and a spacious home, then look no further.

Many upgrades on this split level home. There are exotic rosewood floors throughout the upstairs and travertine tiles. A camera system has been installed, as well as, decorative metal security gate and fence around one acre of the property. A second kitchen has been added to the ground level floor. An outdoor water garden, water features, a 18' x 34' grecian style pool with fountain, a a spa, and a generous paver deck around the pool for entertaining. Many palms, fruit trees, bougainvillea, and flowering bushes adorn the property. This home has six bedrooms, three bathrooms, and two living areas.

This home is ideal for large groups and/or families. Or, if you just want to "get away from it all", this property will give you the privacy you desire, but, still keep you in close proximity of the beach, shopping, restaurants, golfing, and movies. This home is located in a very quiet and ungated community.

I am a regular practitioner of yoga. I have had this house for 12 years and my goal has to make it into a tranquil oasis. It has been important to me to create a blissful and quiet space. I feel this resonates not just within the walls of my home but, beyond to the the spaces of my gardens as well! It has an incredible healing and rejuvenating energy about it.

About Melissa Engler

We have lived in Naples, FL for 12 years. We have a fountain company and have four children, two of which are grown. We have done a lot of extensive traveling with our family and when we decided to purchase a different home we decided to rent out our old home to fellow travelers. We have always valued being able to rent homes instead of hotels. There is nothing more comfortable than being able to make your family breakfast in the morning. Or being able to have your own special space when traveling and not feel rushed or in the way.

I have a very strong yoga practice. It has been important to me to create a blissful and quiet space. I feel this resonates not just within the walls of my home but, beyond to the the spaces of my gardens as well!

Melissa Engler purchased this chateau / country house in 2003

Why Melissa Engler chose Naples

This property, because it was our home, is very special. We have renovated it ourselves, built the pool, water features, and put the gardens in. This is truly a unique property, as, it has been customized for a family in mind. We like our privacy and have tried to landscape in a fashion that gives a person a lot of privacy. We like the location because you truly feel that you are away from it all, but, still can drive within a few minutes to most everything!

What makes this chateau / country house unique

It is good to be able to be in close proximity of everything but, still feel that you are in your own private oasis. This home gives you a truly unique perspective of Florida living. You can watch butterflies, birds, and see beautiful and unique plants. We boast a large heated swimming pool with a gorgeous water fall. The stunning ponds with the waterfalls and lotus galore! A truly unforgettable retreat!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We absolutely loved this property! We came with a couple of other families and pictures do not do this property justice. We had a lot of room and enjoyed the layout of the house. The grounds were stunning and the swan was just breathtaking. We were close to everything. We enjoyed going to Wiggins Pass Beach. The kitchen was very well appointed and the pool was beautiful! We felt that the house was perfect for our family vacation! We spent a lot of time in the heated pool and just hanging out with our group on the property. Why would we want to go anywhere else? We had all we needed there.

Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This is a great get away for the entire family and has all the amenities needed to enjoy your trip without having to leave. It is very peaceful and secluded for the enjoyment without disturbance. It is also close enough to local attractions to be able to leave and come back with ease. Our family really enjoyed this location and the very homely feeling. Thank you.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and our 4-5 kids stayed here for a week. It was the get away we’ve all been needing. Great family time and memories. Pool was unbelievable, back yard was filled with flowers, butterflies, fish, tadpoles etc, and each kid had their own room with their own tv. Owners are super responsive and helpful. Publix is only a mile away. Beach and other shopping and stores are only within 10 miles but there’s really not much reason to leave the property. It’s very private and accommodates all your needs. We will be back!

Fantastic Home! Beautiful and welcoming!

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough about how much we enjoyed staying at this property. The home is spacious and far exceeded our expectations. We have a large family and hotels are stuffy and unwelcoming. Here we felt at home with everything we could possibly need plus more. All the kids had there own rooms. plenty of towels , a kitchen full of everything we needed to cook and bathrooms for everyone. There was also enough room to entertain family's of my son who had just graduated. The owners made the whole visit worry free and when we needed anything, such as the AC unit in basement not working well, they were out right away to fix it. My husband and I had the master bedroom that had a beautiful walk in shower and a tub, extra sized room with our own bathroom. There were also so many extras like a washer and dryer, iron and ironing board, pool toys and games and everything you have in a home that you may need on vacation. The pool was so beautiful and the kids enjoyed it day and night. Very private and lots of places to relax and enjoy. Lovely flowers and landscape. The nice thing about the house is that it was so beautiful but also laid back enough that you didn't worry about using anything. Everyone that came LOVED it. Very reasonable and fun. We are hoping to come again even if we don't have a graduation , just for a family getaway. Thank you so much for the memorable time and great accommodations.

Excellent getaway with superior responsiveness from owners!!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent property! Very comfortable with 10 adults and 3 kids. Although there were a few issues initially, the owners response time and resolutions were impeccable. Myself and many others in the group have 15-20+ years in Guest Service and were all blown away with! Thank you and we look forward to another trip here in the future!!

This lovely property is located in golden gate estates. It is between vanderbilt and pineridge just off from collier blvd. The property sits on 2.5 acres so it affords renters with a lot of privacy in this quiet ungated community. You have the feel of country life, but, are still close to restaurants, mercato, the beach, bars, gyms, and golf.
