Best Location in Paradise

Where to begin...
After finding this property online and contacting the owner for the first time, I just had a good feeling all around. Before we even got to Florida, I had multiple communications from Rich about everything I would need to know about the general area, things to do, restaurants, house amenities etc. he was very patient and prompt in answering my many questions along the way. I don't like surprises so I'm very thorough in my research prior to going anywhere. I will say that I was surprised though... Pleasantly! Everything was exactly as advertised.
It was the little unexpected extras that really impressed us. The welcome basket with wine, chocolate, coffee etc, the icecream maker that we had fun trying out, the high quality bed linens and beach towels, high end kitchen appliances, (a housekeeper that I wanted to bring home with me!)and other things too numerous to mention.
We stayed for the month of November and ended up entertaining family and friends for a couple of weeks. The place was perfect for that. My 2 nieces (ages 11&13) absolutely loved the bedroom with the 2 twin beds that was so beautifully decorated. After the first night, they were excited to tell me that their floor mat glowed in the dark after they turned their lights off! The house is full of various art work with artistic nuances everywhere you look. It's certainly not your typical rental. We enjoyed trying a lot of the restaurants recommended by Rich and his lovely wife Katie. We even tried a cour with them, and would like to think we made some new friends!
Whether you want to lounge by the pool, take a walk to the beach and watch the sunset from the iconic Naples Pier, take an evening stroll to 5th ave for the most amazing frozen custard ever, do some one of a kind shopping, pamper yourself with spa treatments, go to an open air concert in the park, or eat at some of the most amazing restaurants ever...it's all within walking distance of Starfish House. We'll be back!
