Naples Florida is one of our favorite vacation destination spots, so we were pleasantly surprised at the ideal location of this condo complex. It is one block from the beach and right on 5th avenue. We stayed for 2 weeks in September, and had the most wonderful time! 2 weeks here is not enough. The condo is equipped with beach chairs, towels, floats, cooler what more does one need. It even had an assortment of beach toys for kids if needed. We spent the days on the beach, which is so close, just as close as many beach hotels we have stayed in which were much higher in price. At sunset dolphins would jump right out of the surf and play, amazing to watch. Walk the beach at night and chased around ghost crabs which is a great deal of fun and good exercise at the same time! We rented a car and took early evening drives through neighborhoods that are just breathtaking. Do not miss a drive through Port Royal, the homes in there are amazing! We saw 2 that had just sold for over $42,000,000. Yes that many zero's!
The condo itself Unit #204, was spotless and fully equipped with everything one might need, washer, dryer, dishwasher, full kitchen, pots, pans, utensils, etc. The living area had a huge flat screen TV, DVR, and a great selection of cable channels, if you had time to watch TV! There were 2 master suites with full baths, one with a tub. The bedding was some of the most comfortable I've slept on and very tastefully decorated. Plenty of bureau, closet space, hangers. Extra pillows, blankets and towels. There were people who came everyday to water the out door plants, sweep and clean all common areas, and pool cleaning.
Being September in Naples Florida, one might take a chance weather wise, however the weather we had was absolutely delightful. Spent every single night down at the pier to watch the sunset and the dolphins, stingrays, and other fish swimming about. So many fascinating birds flying about and diving for fish, just fantastic to watch and all for free!
One might think dining on 5th avenue would be expensive, yet we had amazing deals including a bottle of wine at 2 for $30, at Cafe Luna. Terrific service, they also had great wood fired pizza very reasonable. I also found amazing prices in some of the stores which I also was a bit intimidated entering, however once I did venture in found awesome quality clothing again at surprisingly great prices.
Because we stayed in Sept. we had an awesome package price on the condo, rental car and airfare.
