1566 Sf; 2 Bedroom, 2 Bath Condo With A Waterfall View From The Lanai
About Bill McCarthy
I was born and raised in the Buffalo NY area. I am retired from HSBC (Marine Midland Bank) since Oct 2011. I am a father of 2 daughters and a Grandpa of 1 granddaughter and 2 grandsons. I spend 2-3 days a week babysitting my beautiful granddaughter (Emma Claire), and grandsons (Colin, Hudson). As they get older and I am no longer needed for daily sitting, I plan to spend more of my time at my condo in Naples.
Bill McCarthy purchased this Condo in 2013
Why Bill McCarthy chose Naples
I rented in Falling Waters in Feb 2013 for the first time and fell in love with it immediately. The pool, the proximity to the downtown area (5 miles) with the restaurants and shops and beaches. I knew I either had to keep coming back every year as a renter or to buy my own unit. The previous year I rented a home in North Naples that took 40 mins each way every day to get to the beach or downtown shops, restaurants. Falling Waters is so near yet is so private and quiet and secluded, it seems so far. I love going down to Lowdermilk Park (although the pool will spoil you) and walking or running the beach between the Park and the Naples Pier. Miles of beautiful beaches and beautiful homes. I just love Naples Florida and Falling Waters. I think you will too.
What makes this Condo unique
As soon as you enter the condo you are struck by the beautiful hardwood floors, the large room sizes, the cleanliness and new look to the unit. The lanai view of a waterfalls with its own separate kitchen is convenient for summer cooking and relaxation.

We absolutely loved our month in this condo. We felt totally at home. We found it very spacious, comfortable, well equipped and clean. Loved the huge private lani overlooking two water falling features and included a built in grill. The pool in this complex was beautiful and just a short walk from the condo. The owner, Bill was great to work with. He purchased a Keurig for us to use when we asked him if there was one in the condo. Having a garage was such a plus.
Thank you Bill for sharing your lovely piece of paradise.

Mike and Cindy,
It was a pleasure for me to have you as my guests for January. I look forward to your return next year. I do appreciate your kind words and great review.
If there are any improvements I can make for next year please do let me know. I try my best to be responsive to my guests needs and requests.
The condo was perfect for us.A very large lanai with a summer kitchen, super master suite. The location was great and Falling Waters has a great pool.We are going back next year.
Thank you very much for your kind words. I was happy to host you and look forward to your return in 2018.
This is a beautifully decorated upper unit. The condo is very well maintained and the owner is very accommodating and responsive to any problems or suggestions. Falling Waters is gorgeous with a wonderful extra-large heated pool. There are scheduled activities should you want, ranging from Aquafit to games nights. It is nicely located close to shopping and about 15 minutes to Naples Pier and other attractions such as Everglades State Park. This is a very comfortable place to stay to relax or be as busy as you want to be. We have stayed in Naples many times before and this is by far the best place we have rented. We have booked to return for the next two years, what more can we say?
Review of Condo Property 479932
Our stay in this condo in Falling Waters was very, very nice. Everything is new and in excellent working condition. We enjoyed morning coffee on the spacious lanai with the sunrise and the pleasant waterfalls. It has well appointed furnishings and each room is most comfortable.
Upon arrival, we found the unit to be sparking clean and a starter of supplies for our use.
The owner has provided everything one would need. It was a pleasure cooking in the large kitchen especially with the open floor plan. Bill, the owner, was easy to reach, showed interest in our well being and was always quick to answer any questions. In addition to the great resort style pool, the Naples pier and beach is only about a 10 - 15 minute drive. We never had to deal with any heavy traffic and always found convenient parking at the beach. Bill provided beach chairs, towels and a cooler. Take advantage as the sunsets at the beach are incredible.
Publix grocery is 5 minutes nearby and next to that, there is a nice Hair Design salon, and a nail salon. Falling Waters has lush and beautiful landscape, is right on Davis blvd. which flows directly onto 5th ave. with all the great shopping and restaurants anyone would want.
While we were there, my husband had to return to Chicago for a family emergency and I stayed in the condo by myself for our final week. I felt completely safe and secure as this is a gated community with staff at the gate. When it came time to leave, the owner arranged for his on site asst. to help me with departure tasks.
We are looking forward to staying in this condo again later this year.
Perfect condo, clean, close to everyting, awesome pool
First trip to Naples Nov 2014 absolutely loved the area! Falling Waters 2nd fl condo /pool very nice & highly recommended gated community. 1800 sq ft 2 bedroom unit. Master bdrm (king) & bath are huge. 2nd Bedroom (queen) w/good size attached bath. Bedrooms located on opposite ends of condo allowing for privacy. Balance of condo - eating area, kitchen, dining room, TV (new flat screen) area all one big long area with very high ceilings made for a nice open comfortable living area. Hardwood floors & updated washer & dryer. Lanai (screened in porch) goes across the entire back side of the condo located off the TV area and master bedroom. Has an outdoor grill with dining room seating and also nice comfy outdoor wicker furniture. You can see 3 waterfalls from the lanai area but never see any people making it very private. Sunrises on this side (lanai) of the condo...nice place to have breakfast & a cup of jo. The place is immaculate, no clutter. Kitchen has the basics to get by as far as kitchen wears & has plenty of cupboard space. Lots of parking and a short walk to the awesome pool. I'm a lap swimmer so the pool was very important to me, estimate pool at a meandering 200 ft long. Look at the website photos or Google Earth the place. You won't find another pool this big anywhere in the area. The area is populated with lots of condos & is very quiet, resort like and the grounds are extremely well kept (like Disney). It is a 7 mile ride to beautiful Naples beach (due west). There in Nov and so the traffic was light. Every street ends at the beach with 4 - 5 free parking space so be an early bird ( by 9:30 -10 am) . Alternative parking short walk to the beach. Homes on the beach are 20 million and up/ no tall hotels! The beaches are beautiful no shade bring your umbrella. I can't say enough good things about the Naples area - it is where the wealthy hang out. Very civilized, not a lot of authority in your face, great restaurants to choose from, lots to do. We dinned every night on 5th ave. If you’re a boater there are extensive waterways, dining etc which we did not have time to visit. We were there to unwind and get off the hamster wheel of life - breakfast, beach, pool, shower, sunset & dinner daily was just lovely. Suggestions: 2nd bathroom needs a shelf or side table to put toiletries. Pool chatter indicates Falling Waters condos rent quick so don't hesitate to rent this place. LOVE NAPLES!
A little piece of paradise
Having just returned from our vacation in Naples, my husband and I can’t wait to start planning our return trip next year. I can honestly say that this was one of the most relaxing vacations I’ve taken in a long time, which in itself is amazing seeing as I was traveling with a very active two-year old!
Falling Waters is a beautiful complex that’s centrally located to an array of dining and attractions. You’re just minutes from the Naples Zoo, the Botanical Gardens (which will be closed for renovations through October 2014, but I highly suggest checking it out), Lowdermilk Beach, and downtown Naples.
Check-in at the gatehouse was a breeze thanks to the thoroughness of the owner, Bill. A pool pass, and car tag we’re waiting for us and the key to the condo is conveniently located outside the front door in a lockbox. You also have access to the garage, which was very nice considering the time of year.
The condo is gorgeous, with high vaulted ceilings and lovely hardwood floors in the living and bedroom areas. It's obvious that the condo has been redecorated fairly recently, which is always a big plus in my book as I tend to be very particular. The whole place was bright, extremely clean, and well taken care of.
I also have to give kudos to the owner for providing some many amenities and creature comforts; from beach towels, chairs, and toys to bikes and blow dryers and games there wasn’t anything that was lacking.
Perhaps one of our favorite features of the condo was the summer kitchen with built-in grill. We ate almost every meal on the lanai, and it was wonderful to have the option to grill up a nice steak or fish.
The pool is lovely with a lazy river type feel and two waterfalls that dominate the center. There are plenty of lounge chairs and shaded cabanas for use as well. The benefit of visiting in the off-season is that the pool was extremely quiet every time we visited.
After a day in the sun, unwind on the lanai with a glass of wine and listen to the relaxing sounds of the two bubbling waterfalls that back the property - I promise you won't regret it.
Thank you so much for your kind review. I am so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at my condo in Naples. I look forward to your visit again same time next year.
The nearby Zoo and Botanical Gardens offer a great leisurely alternative to the pool or beach. A short drive to Everglades City offers the Air Boat rides attractions.
