About Eileen Lane

I have put my own touches to Flamingo Palms villa, we fell in love with Naples on a family holiday and felt it had everything you could want and need for a great family Vacation, we come back twice each year to maintain our villa's and keep them up to a very high standard. Please read all our honest reviews to make your own decision to stay in our lovely home. You will not be disappointed!

It is the only villa on this lake with outside landscape lighting !!!

making outside dining a pleasure.

A real 'Home from Home'!

Why Eileen Lane chose Florida South Gulf Coast

We bought this plot especially for the lake view, and designed Flamingo Palms around the sunrise and sunset! it has a party feel to the villa with the landscape lighting and outside pool and hot tub

we know all our guests leave wanting to return again.

What makes this villa unique

The unique benefits of this villa is the large span of sliding doors leading onto the pool area, ideal for couples or large parties, entertaining and having fun in the sun or sunset.

There is also a fourth bedroom unit that is ideal for mixed age families to have some special time and their own space.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at this property for 15 nights. Our first impression of the area was great - we have picked the right location, a gated community with 24 hour security. Briarwood is spotlessly clean & tidy in a very quiet area.



Our first impression on entering the villa was 'wow', a beautiful picture window view of the pool overlooking the lake from the lounge. This cannot be understated, it was really 'WOW'. On looking round the villa we thought it was beautifully decorated with good quality furnishings - Eileen & Geoff have great taste & we were very happy with our choice. The Villa was also very well equipped there wasn't really anything we needed that wasn't already catered for, even down to pool toys, beach chairs & cool box.



The pool & jacuzzi were lovely, enjoyed by all both young & old. The special added extra was turtles & otters in the lake which were lovely to spot and watch. No alligators thank god! The grounds and pool were also very well maintained, we had several visits during our stay.



The beds were SO comfy, again this can't be understated, I slept fantastically, the sign of being very relaxed & comfortable, just like being at home. I don't generally sleep well when I am away from home!



In terms of the management company, we had to contact them on our second day as we had a power cut during the night. On first impressions I wasn't impressed by the person that returned my call, however, the contractor that visited was excellent, very friendly and helpful and couldn't really do enough. One of the better management companies we have had to liaise with during our holidays to Florida.



In terms of cleanliness of the property, I thought it was very clean, such a lovely property, well decorated, maintained & very well equipped. Perfect.



During the booking process I found Eileen to be very efficient & a good communicator even down to asking us if we enjoyed our holiday when we were due to return home. Eileen gives you that extra personal touch you don't get at most holiday rentals. You really did feel as though you were staying in their home, that they love & want you to enjoy. We have never experienced this in other rentals we have stayed at.



In terms of things to do well Naples is such a beautiful place, we have been before this is why we returned, fantastic beaches, visit Naples pier we saw loads of dolphins, boat rides on the glades, Naples Princess Cruise, shopping and restaurants fantastic! We will return..

Fabulous Villa

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd stay at Flamingo Palms and loved it as much as the first. Briarwood is a quiet well maintained estate close to all facilities Naples has to offer. The villa is beautifully decorated and well kept. The kitchen is modern and has all the items you could need, if your not out sampling one of the lovely restaurants Naples has to offer. The bedrooms are spacious and wonderfully furnished. Eileen is great to deal with and even emailed us the day after arrival to ensure everything was Ok with the villa on our arrival. The pool area is well maintained and the outlook over the lake lovely. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Flamingo Palms and look forward to the we can visit again.

Absolutely beautiful

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful property and wonderful vacation. As soon as we walked through the door, the ‘wow’ factor hit us. Everything was spotless and beautifully decorated to a very high standard. Nice big TV and very good WIFI. Bedrooms were lovely and cool, and beds very big and comfortable.

Kitchen is modern and very well equipped and there was a great BBQ for outside cooking (which we took full advantage of).

The beautiful pool area overlooks the lake which was great for ‘alfresco’ dining and a lovely view to savour when the sun came up first thing in the morning.

Communications with the owners (Eileen/Geoff) was very easy and efficient and had that personal touch. They also gave us some useful information on places to visit for which we were grateful.

Must also mention the location. House is very nicely situated in a beautiful gated, serene community where we felt very relaxed and secure. We have been to Naples a few times over the past years and it is our favourite place in the world. Many good bars, restaurants, beaches etc etc. Cannot fault for friendliness and cleanliness and will never tire of it.

Thank you for a great holiday and we will certainly come back again.

Absolutely wonderful.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Flamingo Palms, and every bit as perfect as our first stay. What can we say? Perfect in every way from start to finish. This really is a fantastic retreat. Eileen has thought of, and provided, everything you could possibly need, and every creature comfort is catered for.

Absolutely immaculate and furnished to a very high standard, it has the absolute luxury feel while retaining a comfortable homely feel too. The pool and outdoor space is perfect for relaxing, and we were lucky enough to be treated to daily viewings of the turtles in the lake as they sunned themselves on the bank outside.

Inside is every bit as fabulous and we cannot wait for our next visit. We would not want to go anywhere else because after Flamingo Palms, I'm sure we would be disappointed. Thank you Eileen!

Needs updating.

  • 2 of 5

Pros: The quiet, residential neighborhood; relaxing pool area with a nice view; proximity to grocery store, shops/restaurants, beach and highway. Cons: Outdated (especially the bathrooms-no hot water in one bathroom at all); rock-hard, uncomfortable beds; only a few pots/one cookie sheet and all dirty; major ant problem in the master bath which was covered with dead ants by the toilet; no start-up products such as bathroom tissue, soap, etc. We arrived late and had to go to the store for these basic items when they should have had a small supply there; early checkout of 10:00 am and if you are not out at exactly that time, they charge a late fee; we used the grill to cook cheeseburgers and it set off the fire alarm although there was no smoke and door from pool closed. So, caution if you use the grill. I would also recommend they mail parking pass before arrival. When we arrived, the front gate did not have our names and hassled us for a good 15 minutes before asking for proof of rental. I showed an email correspondence and they let us in. Overall, I would not recommend nor stay at this home again.

Owner's Response: Firstly, we would like to respond to our first negative review we have received in the 17 years of succesfully renting out our home, and the first time we have had to make a slight reduction in the Security Deposit. We are mystified Lisa why you did not either contact myself or my Management Company if you were not happy with our home, that is why we have a local Management Company to deal with any complaints and resolve any issues, we are also at the end of the phone or emails to respond immediately with any issues. It appears you have now received your reduced Security Deposit back, hence, you have decided to write this negative review. This is a self catering villa, but saying that, there is always Shampoos, Conditions, Soap left under the bathroom cupboards for guests complimentary use, there is always new toilet rolls left in each bathroom. Our beds have pillow top mattresses? All new pots and pans were bought in June? Yes, as your said, you did leave extremely late to check out, our cleaners and Management Company were left waiting on the driveway for well over an hour, even thought I messaged you and our cleaners politely asked you to vacate the villa, you made your decision to finish your breakfast and leave just when you wanted to.. with no consideration to our team, or our incoming guests. It states very clearly when you confirmed your booking that check out is 10.00am The Fire Alarms are there to do exactly wheat they did, if guests decide to fire up the grill next to the house with doors open or smoke in the house they will go off... The Registration form is a mandatory form that Anchor Management has set in place for the 24 hour gatehouse entry, so that they know who is in the villa and that they have the owners Authorisation to be there. if you do not name all the guests and invite extra guests this will be queried at the gatehouse, We have no control over this issue and you should contact Anchor Management regarding this. We were charged double fees for Deep Cleaning the terrible mess you all left in our home when you finally decided to leave, causing the incoming guests having to wait for the cleaning to be completed, we cannot imagine how you treat your own home? this is why there was a slight reduction in your returned deposit. Finally, my past 65 review must speak for themselves, together with my Availability Calendar being fully booked till next July with repeat and very satisfied guests.. There is always one.....

fantastic time at Flamingo Palms Villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a relaxing time in this beautiful home all the facilities were amazing especially the views over the lake at sunset . We dealt with Eileen direct as we like the personal touch as opposed to Homeaway who are not equipped to go into detail as Eileen did for us.

We look forward to returning to this beautiful home.
