About Mary Espejo
After first visiting Naples in 1993 and staying at a variety of rental properties and hotels the Bishop's purchased “Hack’s Shack” in 1997. The home was named after one of Naples’ pioneers and leaders. Mrs. Bishop saw the potential beauty before her husband who was a design consultant. He then spent countless hours endeavoring to remodel the property to modern standards while respecting the home's heritage and character. “Terra Palma”, the new name for the home, is Mrs. Bishops permanent residence. She and her husband had also lived in London, England for 4 years and enjoyed extensive world travel. Mr. Bishop passed in 2014 but Mrs. Bishop continues to operate Terra Palma.

Why Mary Espejo chose Old Naples
We have not found a better place to live. We’ve searched throughout the US and Naples is our choice - my catch-phrase for Naples is “quiet sophistication.” We are surrounded by large, beautiful homes in a residential neighborhood. We have everything we need a short distance away and a brief evening walk brings us to a tranquil beach and the best sunsets in America.
What makes this Cottage unique
Terra Palma is in a unique location; high rise condos and hotels are far away; streets are bordered by lush vegetation; traffic moves at a leisurely pace and people are very, very friendly. Whether a traveler or a local worker, we are here because we want to be. Conversations with strangers are easily started. Naples continues to charm us every day.
