West of US 41 and minutes from Gulf Beaches, Bay Forest is a gated community with a private boardwalk out to a chickee hut on a quiet back bay. Walking / biking paths wind their way past several freshwater lakes and bird rookeries, showing off the beautiful landscaping of this community. Amenities include pools, tennis courts, a well equipped gym, bocce ball, shuffleboard, a library and a large clubhouse. During the 'season' community events are common. Shopping is close by along with numerous restaurants. Don't forget a trip for ice cream at the Royal Scoop after watching a beautiful sunset on the beach. Back bay fishing is as easy as walking down the boardwalk where one can take snapper, sheepshead, trout, ladyfish, snook, redfish and, of course, catfish. Bass and sunfish can be taken in the catch and release freshwater lakes. Surf fishing is 5 minutes away on the beach.

Great location very good value. Condo could use a few upgrades, larger TV in LR, second TV in master BR, some more wall decorations-pictures, drapes, etc., better cable service

Good location

  • 3 of 5

Very old, stained, dirty carpet in the unit. Should have been replaced years ago. Noisy neighbors at times, constant lawn mowing, landscape noise, but to be expected in a condo. Unit is close to elevator and could hear elevator run every time someone used it. Cookware is pretty low end and junky. Location of the property is good, but still a 4 mile drive or walk one way to the beach. Walking paths in the community are paved, around 3 miles long. Nice landscaping throughout. Lots of shaded parking. Short drive to main roadway---Hwy 41 --Tamiami Trail. 2.5 starts, but I rounded it to 3.

Owner's Response: Carpet - The carpet in the unit is unquestionably old and has stains from use. The unit is thoroughly cleaned in between guests, but repeated shampooing will not remove some spots. Stanley Steemer came in and did the entire unit again on 2/24/2015. It seems to work for awhile, but Shakespearean like, the spots seem to return. We have considered replacing the carpets, but to date keeping the unit price affordable has been our priority. On the upside, guests don't need to be overly concerned about spills on the carpet. Banquo's ghost has not been seen since the third act. Cookware - We will replace the cookware this Spring. It is always a balance between adequate cookware and pans that sprout legs and walk away. Landscaping / Noise - Lovely landscaping does come at a price. The gardening staff at Bay Forest is top notch and their results speak for themselves. Elevator / Neighbor / Noise - This unit is in a seven story building serviced by two central elevators. The unit is in the middle of the building, some would say convenient to the elevators. During the season, the building is full, primarily with retirement age tenants. The unit is the full width of the building with windows on the entry hallway / breezeway and the lanai / master bedroom windows facing the woods / bay. Opening all the windows for a lovely cross breeze does mean you will hear the elevators. Sitting on the lanai you will always hear others similarly enjoying themselves in the temperate Naples February evenings. Update Jan 2016 - Living room carpet replaced with laminate. New living room furniture. New small appliances (microwave, toaster, can opener).

Great place to stay !

  • 5 of 5

We we close to church, restaurants, shopping & the beach. The place was clean & well maintained. We had everything we needed & then some. The other people in the building were kind & more than helpful. We were as close to the phone if we needed to contact the owner.We certainly would recommend the place to anyone. We spent most of our time at the beach. The best feature of our stay was the privacy we had.
