I am a retired teacher from the UK. I visited Florida for the winter sunshine for health reasons and fell in love with Naples. We were visiting year after year and so decided it made sense to buy our own place. This is our very special Florida home which we love to share with our guests.
Anne Galpin purchased this house in 2008
We fell in love with the Mediterranean feel of the front and then when we walked in and saw the view we knew that this was the home we had been looking for for nearly two years. The view of the lake, the space in the house for all the family and the fact that the whole of the back virtually opens up to allow the outside and inside to meld into one. The pool area was also very important to us as I love to swim and the pool and the pool-deck are fantastic. We had also rented twice on Kings Lake and loved the area with its shopping plaza and homely feel. The walks around the large lake were also a draw to us. As well as having all of this the house is in a fantastic location which means within minutes of leaving the house you can be strolling along 5th Avenue or sitting on the beach.
The wonderful location, the peace and tranquillity and the wonderful views over the lake and less than 4 miles to Olde Naples, the pier and Naples beach. Really it does have the best of both worlds. The amazingly spacious pool-deck which gets the sun from sun-rise until late afternoon. The ability to walk to the local supermarket for supplies. The layout of the house also allows everyone to have their own space without losing the homely feel. It is also amazing to have such an array of wildlife right on the lake which you can watch from the comfort of the pool-deck. We regularly see Bald eagles and even have a Golden Eagle pair that hunt over the lake.
What a great vacation! From the stunning view when you walk through the doors, the beautiful home meticulously equipped, to all the helpful and thorough info, to all the doors opening wide onto the lanai, even to the positioning of the house - sun in the lanai in the morning and some shade in the afternoon. It was all so perfect.
We will always have great memories of this time spent with our family. Thanks Anne and Peter.
We had thirteen nights in this wonderful villa, and wished we could have stayed longer. The booking process went extremely smoothly and Anne, the owner, responded quickly to my numerous questions, was very efficient, and provided detailed information on the villa and surrounding area before we left. We arrived late in the evening and as there are no keys to collect, were able to access the villa easily with the code provided. Anne had been aware we intended to use the Den as a fourth bedroom, and ensured that the sofa bed had been made up for our arrival. We found a couple of minor problems when we arose the following day, but one quick phone call to the local management company, and they were sorted the same day. What you see in the photos on the website is what you get. The villa is large and spacious, and clean, and there's all the equipment you might need available to you: plenty of towels, bedding, kitchen utensils, crockery and glassware, beach chairs & umbrella, DVD's, books, games, washer, drier, hairdryers, and more. The best thing of all however has to be the view from the pool area across the beautiful lake. The villa is in a quiet residential area, and it was so relaxing to sit and watch the sun rise and set across the lake, to see the different birds and wildlife. It was also a great place to watch the lightning storms! From the villa it's only a ten minute drive to Downtown Naples, and a couple of minutes further to the beach and pier. It's also easy to get to Marco Island (30 minutes) and the Everglades (~50-60 minutes). There's plenty to see and do in the surrounding area. Our favourite days included a Corrie Billy's Airboat ride (on the way to the Everglades), our boat trip with Naples Water Tours (which included swimming off Keewaydin Island, dolphin spotting and jetskiing), and kayaking with the Naples Kayak Company. Great places to eat included the Snook Inn on Marco Island, The Dock at Cayton Cove, and Roma Bistro on 5th Avenue. The ice cream from Kilwins on 5th is delicious!. The beaches in the area are amazing and we had great days at Lowdermilk , Barefoot and Tigertail (Marco Island) beaches. There's a Publix supermarket, Starbucks and Subway very close by and several shopping malls close to Downtown Naples. We were sad when the day of our departure came around, but if we ever go back to Naples, won't hesitate to see if this property is available for our stay. Our deposit was returned to us within a week of leaving.
This home is in a quiet neighborhood, a short drive to downtown Naples, beaches and shopping. The owner obviously spends a lot of time here and the house is therefore very comfortably furnished and well maintained with a well stocked kitchen and amenities. Highly recommended.
We were overwhelmed by this wonderful Villa. The photos on the website do not do it justice. It's far better than we could have imagined. It's very well equipped with everything you need. The area is so quiet and the views over the lake was just outstanding. We could not find a single fault with it. We would highly recommend this Villa and the owner Anne is so helpful and responds to every email promptly. It was a pleasure doing business with her :)
Beautiful property in a quiet neighbourhood but still close to all the attractions/restaurants/supermarkets. The owner Anne is very prompt to reply and easy to deal with. Also, Roberta, the agent in Naples is easy to contact and talk to - she is very familiar with the villa and can give precise help over the phone on the workings of the house and is very happy to come out an visit if needed. I cannot think of a better place to stay in Naples (we have been 3 times) and, on a minor note, the kitchen has the quietest dishwasher I have ever (not) heard.
When we first walked in the villa and saw the gorgeous view it was one of those WOW moments! The villa was everything we expected and more. Anne was extremely helpful. She sent lots of information prior to us going and when we arrived there was also a folder Anne had put together which again was really helpful. In our group there was myself, my husband and our 2 kids aged 10 and 12 and my parents also went. It was the perfect size for us all so much room! My 10 year old loved the den and having his own space and we all loved the pool. My dad particularly enjoyed fishing from the lake on the back of the house. He caught catfish, bass and crappies. We also saw a baby gator and turtles in the water in fact the wildlife was great to see, so many different birds, rabbits and squirrels. There was wifi at the house and even Netflix which the kids thought was ace lol. But Anne has really made it feel like home from home with all the little touches around the house. She also left lots of games and DVDs. There were also loads of towels and hangers even hair straighteners! I would definitely recommend this property if you're staying in the Naples area. The area itself is quiet but it's a great base as its so close to lots of places such as The Everglades, Fort Myers and Marco Island. We did lots of things while we were there. I'd highly recommend fishing with Rodney Raffield (google him that's how we found him) in Everglades City. He was recommended by some locals and he's abit cheaper than others. My husband and son have never fished but they loved it and even brought us some supper home! The dolphin cruise with good time charters from fort Myers was also great. Fort Myers really is beautiful and worth a visit. We went shooting at Naples gun range & Emporium which again was a fab experience. The best thing for us all though had to be the airboat ride. We went with Captain Jacks airboat rides based in Everglades City. A little further than some but well worth it and you get free access after into their animal sanctuary with the gator show which was really informative but fun aswell. If you google them and go in their website you can get a money off voucher too. All in all a fantastic holiday!!
The villa was very tranquil and in a beautiful location. It lived up to all of the expectations and reviews.
We would thoroughly recommend It! Contact with the owner was easy & she was really helpful.
Everything was clean & tidy and all the amenities we required were available.
Naples is a lovely location giving you the more natural side of Florida.
Would definitely book this villa again!! Thank you :-)
