Our 1st(GB)/2nd(US)-floor apartment in Lakeside at the World Tennis Center suits both couples and families. It has a double bedroom (king-size bed/two walk-in closets/en-suite shower room), a twin bedroom (closet, and bathroom adjacent), and a sofa bed in the lounge (for young children only). A spacious lounge/diner, with table and seating for up to six persons, has access to a screened, west-facing lanai (balcony) overlooking a lake and equipped with patio tables and chairs. A fully-equipped kitchen adjoins the dining area. There is a separate washing machine/dryer area. The apartment is air-conditioned, has cable TV (lounge and master bedroom), a DVD player (US region DVDs only), radio/cassette player, telephone, and WiFi. There is a dedicated parking space and guest parking. We transfer our rights to access W.T.C tennis courts (no court fees), swimming pools, outdoor spa, and clubhouse/restaurant (a registration fee of $100.00 is payable locally).
Downtown Naples shops and beaches are a 5/10 minutes drive away. The Everglades National Park is a half-hour drive away. A guest said, 'Having a great time; it is a real pleasure to return to your lovely apartment each evening'.
The World Tennis Club (W.T.C.) is a major Florida Gulf Coast tennis facility and is the central feature of the community in which our apartment is located. We transfer our tennis rights to our guests (they must pay a registration fee to W.T.C. of $100.00 per rental - irrespective of the number of guests or the duration of the rental - for temporary memberships).. This gives free access to 17 high quality tennis courts, a pro-shop, and a clubhouse with bar and restaurant (seasonal). Pro-tennis tuition is available, exhibition matches are played frequently, and regular tournaments are arranged. Adjoining the clubhouse is a large, heated swimming pool and a jacuzzi (spa tub). There is a second, smaller heated swimming pool just round the corner from our apartment. Special meals and barbeque evenings are arranged at the restaurant in conjunction with events. The W.T.C. office provides a monthly calendar of events.
Naples is a very big location for golf. Although there isn't a golf course on site at W.T.C., Naples has many public and private golf courses, several of which are close by our apartment. Details can be found on the Naples Tourism website. The nearby Quail Run Golf Club offers reduced fees to W.T.C. guests (ask at W.T.C. for details of when these apply and the fees)
Beach and Wildlife Details:
Naples has a lovely, nine-mile long, white shell-sand beach, which is safe for children. It stretches from south of Naples Town Pier to beyond Lowdermilk Beach Park, about 1 mile from the apartment. There are many access points to this beach which is also good for shell collecting. There are changing facilities, showers, and a cafe at Lowdermilk Park and showers and toilets at Naples Town Pier. North of Venetian Bay there are further grade 1 beaches at Clam Pass, Delmor-Wiggins, Barefoot Beach and Lovers Key State Parks, each with picnic/barbecue areas and full changing facilities (entry charges apply). Pelicans, fishing just off shore, are a major attraction, as are cormorants, egrets, sandpipers, sanderlings, seagulls, and terns on the beaches..
Sanibel Island, near Fort Myers (1 hour's drive away) has some of America's best shelling beaches. The Ding Darling Wildlife Bird Sanctuary on Sanibel Island is where many Northern bird species, including great white pelicans, spend their winters, and where egrets, anhingas, herons, roseate spoonbills and ibis can be seen close-up all year round.. The nearby Bowman's Beach has picnic and changing facilities and a beautiful shell-sand beach.
The Thousand Island Section of Everglades National Park (free entry + wildlife cruises) is a half-hour drive from our apartment, whilst the Shark Valley (cycle-path and trolly tour) and Florida City (Park HQ and overlooks) accesses to the Park are a 1 hour and 2 hour drive away, respectively. Everglades National Park is a unique world ecosystem of marsh grasslands, hardwood hammocks and mangrove islands, with alligators, salt-water crocodiles, dolphins, manatees, turtles, water snakes, and an amazing variety of bird life, all year round.
The Corkscrew Swamp/ Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary is only a short drive from the apartment and harbors a bald cypress swamp with alligators and both water and tree bird life (including herons, egrets, falcons, hawks and woodpeckers), as well as racoons.
Naples Town Pier allows free sea fishing by rod (bait shops available) whilst charters for deep-sea game fishing are available from the Crayton Cove Town Marina. There are also sail charters from the marina, both bare-boat and captained.
Naples City has five major shopping hubs located, respectively, at Third Street South and Fifth Avenue (downtown), The Coastland Center (on US41), Venetian Bay (on Gulfshore Boulevard North), and the Waterside Center (on Seagate Road). All are within a 5/10 minutes drive from our apartment. The Coastland Centre contains major department stores such as Sear's, Macy's, JC Penny's, and Dillard's. The other shopping complexes listed above comprise boutiques, specialist shops, jewelers, antique and fine art galleries, and good quality restaurants. Menus from a number of the restaurants are kept in our apartment.
Outlet store complexes are sited on the road from Naples to Marco Island (Premier Stores), beside Interstate 75N near Bonita Springs (Miramar Outlets), and on the road to Sanibel Island (Tanger Outlets), all within an hour's drive of our apartment.
