Naples Park is a great area with everything conveniently nearby. We use this house regularly and want to ensure our guests enjoy it and want to return! Our vacation home is in a great location and we've made it very comfortable. The house is great for adults and children! A direct flight from Boston and within 25 minutes from the airport (RSW-Ft. Myers) we pull in the driveway! We have enjoyed our beautiful vacation home each and the many girls trips, guys trips, family & friends trips! We've been honored that almost all of our guests have returned, which is the ultimate compliment! Because we are still in our 40's, we are working full time and looking forward to the day that we can enjoy months at a time in this phenomenal location! There's lots to do and 2 world-class beaches to choose where you'll spend the days! Come be our guest...we'd love to host you!

Becky Darsch purchased this house in 2007

We've vacationed in Naples and LOVED Vanderbilt Beach and Delnor-Wiggins State Park. Naples Park is a great spot and we enjoy the active community and beautiful beaches. We have several friends that have purchased in the Park.

Getting up, jumping on the bike for a quick ride to the beach or to grab coffee at Starbucks. Then relaxing to read the paper or a new best-seller. After a great day on the beach, returning to watch a spectacular sunset! There are great restaurants, great things to do, and most of all we REALLY relax when we're there.

GREAT PLACE TO STAY!

  • 5 of 5
Our daughter got married on one of the many beaches in the area. Not only was the beach close but so many other attractions and places to eat as well. The sunsets are absolutely wonderful and there are a number of places to watch them. Only 20 minutes to 5th Avenue South and Tin City. The house was great with plenty of room and nicely decorated. We found the house had all the things we needed for comfort, the beach, bike rides, or catching the Masters on TV. We would recommend it to any one traveling to the Naples area looking for a good place to stay.

GREAT VACATION HOME

  • 5 of 5
We loved the Grapefruit Getaway, even though we were in tad disappointed there were no grapefruits on the tree. This place totally lived up to its description. We had 8 people in our group and the house was able to accommodate that many people easily. We loved the convenient access to the beach by car or bike. The location was also ideal for a day trip to Sanibel Island and the Everglades. Becky was easy to work with and very helpful. I would certainly recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a relaxing place to stay in southern Florida. Originally we had planned to stay at a Marriott timeshare, but we were glad we found this place instead. My family liked it even better.

My family had a fantastic time and will definitely be coming back again next year! Highly recommended to all. The owner is extremely accommodating and the house is in a perfect location and easily slept 4 adults and 2 kids. Couldn't have asked for a better house!

A REAL HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
This was our first home away from home experience and we absolutely enjoyed it. The house is very close to both Delnor-Wiggins State Park and Vanderbilt beach. We could spend the morning on the beach, cook and eat lunch at the house, then head back to the beach after a nap. We found almost everything we needed in the house: beach chairs, bikes, plenty of towels and cooking utensils. The grapefruit tree was a wondeful plus. Becky also gives very good recommendations on restaurants and fun places. Thank you Becky!

A WEEK JUST WASN'T LONG ENOUGH!

A week just wasn't long enough!
  • 5 of 5
We recently returned from a great week staying in Greg and Becky's home Naples Park. Their home is beautiful with many recent upgrades. The rain shower head in the master bath put another task on my home to-do list. We spent most of the time that were at the house on the lanai, although I did catch part of the Masters on their nice wide screen TV. The weather could not have been better ranging between 85-88 each day, so we would head off to the Vanderbuilt beach which is close by. Beach during the day and it was off to one of the many restaurants in the area at night. As Becky recommended we caught the beautiful sunset from the deck at the Naples Golf Resort right off of 41. We took a couple of trips down to 5th Avenue approximately 20 minutes away and somehow we always seemed to end the night at the Blue Martini which is located in a new section called the Mercato 5 minutes from the house. Although I'm not a martini drinker I enjoyed other beverages and the live music every night. This was our first trip to Naples, Although we have been to the "east coast' mostly, West Palm Beach, a number of times, we both agreed that we would like to go back to Naples. I know that the same people usually return to Greg and Becky's home each year and now we know why. We had a great week and hopefully can return in the future for a longer stay.
