Vanderbilt Bay consists of 2 delightful 7 story mid-rises with 18 units in each. Built 1980-1981 and simply named Vanderbilt Bay I and Vanderbilt Bay II. They operate as one condo association.
Both are perched beside an especially sweet spot on the bay where the waters meander toward the buildings and turn north behind them en route to the Gulf- a mesmerizing sight.
The 2 buildings are almost identical but not quite. A careful look at the photos and you will see subtle architectural differences. Both buildings offer 6 floors of residential over their lobby/ garage levels with 3 units per floor.
The 2 bedroom 2 bath end units in each building are similar with sweeping wraparound vistas to the Bay, and many exciting through views to the Gulf. Each end unit offers 2 lanais- the first wraps around the living/dining/kitchen area for mainly bay vistas. The 2nd lanai wraps around their Master bedrooms with mostly through views to the Gulf.
The smaller interior units in each building are recorded as identically sized but configured differently. Van Bay I was built as a 1 bedroom 1 bath unit whereas the interior unit in Van Bay II was constructed as a 2 bedroom 2 bath unit. Both units offer an intimate connection with the bay with rear lanais that extend the width of their units.
Public records convey that they range in size from 1045′ square feet to 1329′ square feet of interior living it.*
Originally, Vanderbilt Bay I & II were to be combined with the 2 beach buildings across the street, Bayshores and Gulfshores. That never happened but it was agreed that the boat slips and tennis court would be shared with those buildings as well as beach access for Vanderbilt Bay I & II.
The amenities specifically include:
• 34 boat slips in all are shared with the 2 beach buildings. Lifts are allowed with the exception of five slips, 15-20, located behind Vanderbilt Bay’s community pool that require floating or “drive-on” lifts to minimize the impact to the pool area. Boats may reach 35’ feet in length and 9 and ½ feet in beam.
• The elevated tennis court over parking for Vanderbilt Bay I & II are shared with the 2 beach buildings too.
• Vanderbilt Bay I enjoys deeded beach access via a locked beach gate sited on the south side of Bayshores of Vanderbilt Beach.
• Vanderbilt Bay II enjoys deeded beach access via a locked gate sited on the north side of Gulfshores of Vanderbilt Beach.
Vanderbilt Bay enjoys its own community pool tucked between their 2 buildings on the bay, extra storage, and 7 privately owned cabanas a piece.
Parking includes 6 coveted attached under building garages for Van Bay I, 7 attached garages for Van Bay II, an assigned space under the tennis court or an assigned space outside with extra guest spaces.
12 leases are allowed in both buildings per year with a 30 day minimum
Pets are not allowed.
*Original Developer floor plans are recorded with the Naples Area Board of Realtors (NABOR) that convey the units are larger than has been recorded in public records- from 1144’ sq ft to 1516’. This underscores the need to verify all measurements if you intend to base a real estate transaction upon
