THE GUEST HOUSE

The typical luxury high-end home property in Naples or Boca Raton provides a detached guest house for the comfort and convenience of friends and family while visiting. Occasionally, homeowners may also rent the guest house as a convenient stream of revenue. Whichever way you go, your guest house should offer those who stay with you the same feeling of comfort and relaxation as their own home. Therefore, the importance of a complete home is even more evident.

 

INTERIOR DESIGN CHECKLIST

Fortunately, your Clive Daniel Home interior designer will have a checklist of things to keep in mind when designing your guest house to make it a much sought-after vacation home for your guests’ maximum enjoyment. Those visiting from overseas or long continental distances typically prefer an extended stay, yet another reason to offer them all the comforts of a luxury high-end home as they enjoy their vacation in paradise.

As you and your interior designer are deciding what your guest house should look like, there are several options to entertain. For the ultimate comfort and convenience of your guests, take into consideration the people who most likely will be staying there, in order to accommodate the different preferences of a variety of ages. While your older guests’ focus may be optimal sleeping arrangements and a luxury high-end kitchen, the younger set may prefer more of a “Smart” home loaded with the latest automation, gaming and Bluetooth-friendly devices. Also take into account the needs of guests with small children. Your guest abode may need some “childproofing” and children’s furniture like a high chair and crib, as well as a collection of toys. For older kids (and kids at heart), consider a game room with a pool or billiards table, dartboard, poker table and a collection of board games, all presented against tasteful furnishings and décor tastefully assembled by your designer. We all can agree that a well-outfitted media room is an essential part of every guest house in Naples and Boca Raton.

…offer them all the comforts of a luxury high-end home as they enjoy their vacation in paradise.

Outdoor amenities like a firepit, pool and spa facilities along with guest cabana, outdoor kitchen and media also need to be taken into consideration, in order to take advantage of our delightful weather and abundant outdoor Florida living activities. Should your luxury high-end home be located on the waterfront, then your guests will surely enjoy options like different types of boats (canoe, kayak, powered craft), jetskis, snorkeling gear and other water-related items. The staging and ease of access to these features is all part of the planning and layout that you and your designer will discuss. If your guest house has its own Gulf or bay access, your designer can customize the dock area’s presentation and amenities. Should you live beachside, a well-organized, convenient storage area for fun in the sun items such as lounges, umbrellas, beach toys and the like should be included in your guest house plans, as well as a conveniently located, well-stocked shower area indoors, outdoors or both.

Celebrated fashion designer Donna Karan’s retreat in the Turks and Caicos is a two-story beauty offering gorgeous 360-degree views and amenities. You and your Clive Daniel interior designer can use this as an example for ideas. Another style to consider is the guest accommodations located on the palatial Naples estate owned by TV’s Judge Judy Sheindlin. The home itself boasts an enclosed lagoon with three waterfalls and living areas of over 10,000 feet. One can just imagine what kind of amenities her guests enjoy!
