Kate and Rich have lived in Naples since 2004 and love everything that our lifestyle here has to offer. We love to travel and have been all over the world so we know what makes for a great vacation. We are also foodies having eaten in some of the greatest restaurants and experienced everything from traditional to creative culinary opportunities. Rich is one of the largest suppliers of botanicals and medicinal plant products from all over the world to the largest producers in the USA. Kate is a tennis teaching professional. We love outdoor activities and have recently become road bicyclers. Rich is a very active Rotarian in THE Rotary Club of Naples and we love to serve our community through service. We have three young adult children who live in Florida. We love Naples because no matter where we go in the world, we get to come home to paradise!
We chose Naples because some friends heard we were considering a move from New Jersey to Florida. We were actually looking around Sarasota and they made us promise if we traveled back to Florida to seek a home we would come to Naples. Being people of our word, we did just that. It took only a few hours to know there is where we wanted to live. We were sitting outside at a restaurant on Fifth Avenue South the first night and Kate said, 'This is the sexiest street I have ever seen.' We bought our home and expected to move within a couple of years but once back in New Jersey we decided we needed to get back to Naples as soon as possible. We sold our home up there and 'loaded up the truck and moved to Beverly' as they once said somewhere. It's been great and the location of this home is the perfect place to enjoy the finest of everything that Naples has to offer.
Staying at Starfish House is being immersed in luxury and convenience. It is so easy to walk a couple of blocks to Starbucks and then walk a few blocks to Naples Bay and see the sunrise. There is always a wealth of activities nearby from art fairs to car shows or special evening events on Fifth Avenue or Third Street. Being here makes you perfectly positioned to do it all.
