We had a wonderful time here and highly recommend this place to anyone that loves the beauty of the water and peaceful atmosphere. We especially enjoyed sitting at the large dining table overlooking the lake and pool...we had several friends over from time to time and they too thought it was gorgeous. The layout here is very nice...I think it will be one of my favorites. There is even a small office corner for computer work! The friendly neighbors next door were the frosting on the cake....

Owner response: Thank you very much for your very kind review!
My husband and i enjoyed our month long stay at this property very much. The view of the lake over the pool was beautiful and relaxing and we always had a nice breeze to keep us cool. The pool had sun all day long and there was plenty of space to sit in the shade as desired. The house was immaculate, nicely decorated, and homey. It was well equipped with everything a vacationer needs. We ate every meal ouside on the lanai because the weather was almost perfect each day. Having the Golden Gate Park nearby was a bonus with its lap pool (I am a swimmer), regular pool with diving boards and water slide for the kids. Our grandchildren loved it! My husband enjoyed the very nice bike path. Of course Naples with its beautiful beaches, first class restaurants and shopping are only 15 minutes away. Property manager Jim and wife Diane were most helpful and welcoming us and gave us a sense of security while we were here. We would recommend renting here without hesitation! Don't miss a visit to The Naples Botanical Gardens, The Naples Zoo, the beach at sunset, and free concerts in Cambier while you are here.

Best rental ever

My husband and I rented this house for the entire month of March 2012. We have rented properties before and this by far was the best. The beautiful, peaceful serene lake was such a pleasure to look at every morning when I opened the blinds. The day started with a happy and relaxed feeling. The pool was absolutely where we spent most of time. Peaceful lazy days on the lanai. The water was always the perfect temp. The house was clean and well equipped. Within hours we felt like we at our own home. We loved the area, close to everything. The resturant and entertainment was limitless. We loved walking the quiet neighborhood every night. We loved the Naples Beach Club that was recommeded. We had dinner one night right on the beach to watch the sunset. On Sundays they have live bands, great fun. Working with the owner was a pleasant experience and hopefully we can do this again next year. Maybe for a couple of months.

Owner response: Thank you for your kind review. I am glad that you had a wonderful time at my house and you were superb guests! You are welcome back anytime and I hope you had a safe trip back home. Cheers.
What a perfect vacation!!!! I did NOTHING. Except lay around near the pool, sip a few G+T's every day, read a book, dip in the pool 5 or 6 times a day, every day. The privacy of the yard overlooking the lake offers a sense of tranquility that you can seldom find for a totally relaxing vacation. I travel globally about 100 days a year. I have found the perfect pace to unwind. All the amenities that you could possibly need are in the house. Also, it is spotless. The fresh fruit we picked from the trees in the back yard was delicious. We are returning early in the new year to recharge our batteries and DO NOTHING again. Extremely good value for the money paid.

My friend and I enjoyed the private and inviting ambiance of the house and the backyard lake and pool area. It was peaceful and serene, like an oasis. The house was beautifully furnished and I thought it was better equipped than my own home up north! We relaxed and enjoyed ourselves immensely. We really liked the beach club on Sundays and we loved the miles of public beaches in Naples. A great get-away!

This is truly a beautiful and tranquil place. The house is clean, spacious, and furnished in a lovely tropical-themed decor. The pool area has a barbeque, comfortable furniture, and a very serene view of the lake. The pool is extremely pleasant and well-maintained. Shopping is only minutes away, and once you pick up a few things to throw on the barbeque, you might not care if you do anything other than chill by the pool. We travel alot, but this was the easiest and most relaxing trip we've had in a while. We didn't want to go home!

I stayed at this rental with a friend and it was excellent. It was in a quiet neighbourhood within about 10 - 15 minutes of downtown and beaches. The house itself had everything you could need - a well appointed kitchen, large comfortable sitting and dining area, and good sized bedrooms, with two bathrooms. It also has a screened-in patio with a barbeque and pool and a pretty view of the small lake behind. You can actually pick fresh citrus in the backyard for breakfast! I would definitely recommend it.

About the owner: This is my private home so I take pride in its upkeep and furnishings. I am not a business so I don't accept credit cards, sorry.

Why the Owner Chose Berkshire Lakes:
Naples- the 'palm springs' of Florida!. With miles of unrestricted sandy public beaches, classy restaurants and shopping and a more 'laid back' approach to living and vacation time than what might be tbe found on the Atlantic coast of Florida.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
It is nice to have a south facing lanai, so that in the winter it is still warm and sunny when you sit out around the pool. The pool temperature rarely goes below 84 degrees, even in January!
