Naples Communities: Briarwood, Lely and ours are the only 3 private communities that offer clubhouse facilities that allow rentals for a period of less than a month LEGALLY and are within less than 10 miles from downtown Naples and the beach. All 3 communities are lovely and all of them have wonderful homes.
Avoid Condos if you have children with you, kids want to play around the pool and local retirees can get very nasty when their bliss is disturbed.
Be careful of homeowners who 'reed the meter' on how much energy you can use. Imagine having to scrimp on pool heat or AC on your holiday.
Make sure that you ask to see the owners Florida Tax certificate if they charged you tax. If they don’t have one then they are just charging you but not paying the tax.
Make sure you get a rental agreement spelling out exactly what you get and what is expected of both parties.
Make sure there is a local property manager who can resolve any issues. What if the AC stops working? What if there is a leak?

Communities Continued: Lely offers wonderful world class Golf. That is its main benefit. It also has a great Players club that may or may not be included in your rental. It is however much farther from the beach and downtown than the others. Briarwood is not too far from downtown although you do have to drive around the airport to get there. It has a very minimal clubhouse with almost no services but it has the pizazz of having a guard 24/7, mostly for show as Naples is very safe. Homes in Briarwood near the Livingston Highway wall are very noisy day and night. Our community does not have a guard, and we also do not have a Golf course. We do however have an amazing Club House, and many other facilities. Golf is across the street and within less than one mile is everything else. We are closer to downtown and the beach and we are very quiet and very Private.

Your Own Personal Very Private Pool
The Pool and Spa are absolutely wonderful. We had them custom built with all the goodies. The heated and lighted pool is 25 feet long and has an incorporated Spa separately heated and featuring massage jets and an air blower. There is also an incorporated pool seat that is conveniently placed below a sheer decent waterfall emanating from a large planter filled with exotic plants. This is a salt water pool which means it uses almost no chlorine. No there is no salt to speak of in this pool; instead it uses a small amount of salt to make a natural kind of chlorine. The water is soft and there is no smell of chlorine and your eyes don't burn when they get wet. The swimming pool is surrounded by custom brick work and a cage called a 'lanai', so no bugs or anything but sun can get in. The lanai itself has a partially shaded dining area (with outdoor furnishings by Robb and Stucky), with a lighted ceiling fan is perfect for alfresco dining.
Most amenities within easy walking distance
Within a short walking distance there are markets, small shops, restaurants, liquor stores etc. Also just a few steps away from our front lawn is the clubhouse with all its facilities our private lighted tennis courts and a marvelous 36 acre lake. For things further away such as the parks and downtown Naples there are public busses and taxi companies. However to take best advantage of your holiday we recommend renting a car no matter where in Naples you stay. Downtown is 3.2 miles away and the beach is about 3.8 miles away. Walking that far with your beach gear is not comfortable. Most folks go to the beach only a few times during their stay and swim mostly in our wonderful pools, but there is so much to see and do in Naples and the surrounding area that it warrants renting a car in order to maximize your holiday.
We provide nearly everything
There is so much to do in Naples and so many places to see. Without information you will miss much of what the Paradise coast has to offer. Surely everyone can tell you about 5th Avenue South or about the Naples Pier but what about those hidden spots only the locals know about? Our local personal property manager will help guide you to finding hidden gems, adventures, affordable restaurants and good places to shop. This website is full of area information and it is yours to use even if you never stay at our Villa. Don't bring your beach towels because we provide plenty of them and even the beach bags to carry them in. In fact we provide beach lounges and umbrellas his/hers tennis rackets his/hers golf clubs, beach toys, and so much more. Check with us before you pack for your holiday in Paradise.
I was born in Portugal but grew up in the US as an American citizen. My wife also came from Europe as she was born in Germany. Our son was born in the USA. That is my lovely wife Dagmar and my son Jason in the picture.
We also have a lovely little place in Algarve Portugal but it is very far away so we don't go as often as we would like.
Our Florida home is beautiful but unfortunately we can only be there a few weeks each year or less.
It is a shame that such a wonderful place sits empty much of the time so we decided that we would let some nice folks like you use it while we are not there. You get a great place to stay at a fair price and we get some money to help with the expenses.
When we decided to buy a vacation home in Florida we had many choices. We have friends who live in Florida on both coasts so we explored all the possibilities. I visited 236 properties on both coasts before we decided on our home. We wanted something special and a home we could be proud of but we also wanted a great deal.
After having visited everywhere from Boca Raton to Palm coast and everywhere else we fell in love with Naples. No other place on earth makes us feel as relaxed and as happy with the single exception of Hawaii.
For us the Gulf waters are warmer and cleaner then the waters on the east coast of Florida and Naples is very up-scale and always lovely manicured. Living in NY we truly appreciate the contrast.
Our private community is lovely and highly manicured and it has amazing club house facilities and wonderful places to jog or ride a bike.
We looked at houses in many Naples communities. Because we knew we wanted to be able to rent our property to short term guests we had to discover the private communities that allowed short term rentals. On our personal web site
FloridaHomeAway.com you can see a good comparison of the different types of communities and accommodations available in Naples.
Basically if you want a great private community with club house facilities very close to the beach ours beats all the others hands down.
Our home is truly custom made. After we purchased it we had a substantial portion of it demolished and we extended it to include 2 very large Master Bedroom Suites, both opening to the custom made pool and lanai area and each on opposite sides of the house. This makes our home perfect for 2 couples or extended family and nobody gets the lesser room. Then because we have Jason we built a custom made kids/teens room, with very colorful beds, and each bed has it own personal TV and DVD player with game console and personal head phones. Our pool and garden area are professionally maintained by a landscaping architect not just a lawn cutting company. He insures our place always looks beautiful, that the fruit trees (many) are properly trimmed and that there is never a blade of grass out of place. We are just 3 miles to 5th avenue south and less than 4 miles to the beach. We knew we needed to be close to the sea because I love boating and it was only a matter of time before we purchased a great boat in Naples. We did and we purchased a Marina slip right on 5th avenue in Naples Bay next to Tin City only 3 miles away. We have a great property manager (and good friend) who looks after our guests. We all want to make sure our guests have the “best holiday ever” and we take great pride in how well we take care of them. Dari is always available to help setup a golf excursion, a trip to the Everglades, or simply to deal with any property related issues. We rent our home exactly as we like it for ourselves. We have 1,000 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets, fine crystal, and all the comforts of home including an extremely well equipped kitchen.Being originally from Europe our home has a European flare such as for example a bidet in the master bathroom. We have everything such as golf clubs (his and her) tennis equipment, beach gear, high chairs for kids, and strollers for little ones (my sisters have 6 little ones) and a lot more. Our home is wonderful. Cheers.
