We live in a bit of paradise on the northern tip of Door County WI. As much as we love it here...the winters are getting colder as we get older so we decided to spend the month of January in the subtropics of south Florida this year. In our long search we found this home and after speaking with Ana (the owner) we knew it was the right one.
The home is located in a working neighborhood, quiet and friendly and a short distance from one of the most beautiful beaches in the area. It's a comfortable, clean, well furnished home. The kitchen is easy to work in (important to me) with all the things you need to cook and dine well. The bedrooms (beds) were very comfortable so our nights were restful...good nights sleep so we were ready for the next days adventures. The bathrooms were clean and well stocked. There was even a washer and dryer.....very welcome.
The house is only a few blocks from 2 major routes, Tamiami Trail (north/south) and Immokalee Rd (east/west) making it very easy to get anywhere....shopping, eating, entertainment and of course BEACHES.
We spent time in Old Naples and the Naples Pier. We went fishing with A&B Charters out of Tin City (awesome). We went to Naples Botanical Garden twice and swam at the YMCA lap pool 3 times a week or more. We explored south through the Everglades and north through Bonita Springs, Estero and Cape Coral. One day we spent the day at the Thomas Edison winter retreat in Fort Myers....an amazing day. We walked several beaches from Sanibel all the way down to Naples Beach and found Vanderbilt beach, right there within walking distance, to be the best of them all. It was all we anticipated...more then we expected. We even had the pleasure of meeting Ana and Renee (the owners). Gracious and warm are words that come to mind when I think of them and we wish we could have spent a little more time with them. Come to that...I wish we had booked through February. Oh well...maybe next year.
All in all, our time at Azule was wonderful and I would recommend the hospitality and comfort of this lovely home to anyone.
Thanks Ana and Renee for sharing .....we loved being there.
