BEACHFRONT CONDOS AND SO MUCH MORE
Welcome to Vanderbilt Beach
Vanderbilt Beach is an unincorporated beach community in Naples, Florida. As the name suggests, it is best known for its long, pristine and sandy beach. However, that does not mean that Vanderbilt Beach is only a vacation spot. Being just 9 miles from the center of Naples, it is ideally placed for a perfect blend between beach comfort and city amenities. Vanderbilt Beach affords a pleasant residential environment and extensive recreational resources. The community consists of people who live and work in the area year round, seasonal residents and visitors who flock here to enjoy the beautiful weather annually. Looking to visit and stay in an Airbnb or VRBO cottage or home? Check out Naples Park for the best selection or consider staying at our favorite short term rental close to downtown Naples.

Dining, Shopping and Entertainment
Anchored by Whole Foods Market, Nordstrom Rack and Silverspot Cinema, a 12-screen premier-style theater, Mercato offers 12 notable restaurants, over 20 upscale retailers and luxury residential condominiums. Mercato hosts a vibrant year-round event calendar with most events free and open to the public. Mercato is Naples Florida’s newest shopping, boating and dining district is just a couple of miles away and is a short drive or bike ride away.
For fine shopping, hit Fifth Avenue South and Third Street South. Further north, the Village at Venetian Bay and the Waterside Shops at Pelican Bay are lush outdoor boutique malls. At the Mercato Shops, in addition to a variety of stores and a Whole Foods, you’ll find a luxury movie theater. Coastland Center is a typical name brand indoor mall. You may want to do some souvenir shopping at Tin City Waterfront Shops before or after a Naples Bay boat cruise. You can also visit Naples own Outlet Center, but it is small in comparison to others; true outlet enthusiasts will want to head north to the Miromar Outlets in Estero.
Moreover, Vanderbilt Beach is home to Gumbo Limbo-The Ritz Carlton beachfront restaurant, Turtle Club-another outstanding beachfront restaurant and Baleen-the acclaimed La Playa Beach and Golf Resort beachfront hotel.
