Our apartment was, spacious, clean, and well appointed. Situated in a quiet neighborhood, but only 15 min. To Marco and 20 min. to Naples. The pool was lovely, and we spent most afternoons there. Great airboat ride just north on 41, and wonderful restaurant (Triad's) just south on 41. Great time!
This was an excellent condo in a great location. It was only about 15 minutes to shopping areas, great restaurants and interesting natural history areas to explore. The owners paid close attention to detail to make our stay very enjoyable. Everything we needed was provided. The place was clean and well maintained. There was an abundance of literature about the local area to help us plan our stay. Internet and local phone services were available and a pool and other recreational facilities wre available at the resort close by.
