Recent Florida South West reviews

  • Great house with easy beach and bay access

    "My husband and I enjoyed staying at the beautiful Mermaid's cottage during a recent family gathering in Bonita Springs. The house was a perfect get-away for us with plenty of room to relax and prepare meals in a nicely decorated and appointed space. We took advantage of the bikes, riding to Lovers Key State Park, and relished daily morning and evening walks on the beach. Bird watching was great right from the deck, where we observed osprey and egrets in the surrounding neighborhood trees. The Mermaid's cottage was a perfect retreat for us with easy access to the beach, nearby parks, and the surrounding area."

  • Old charm Sarasota

    "We recently returned from a wonderful week in Coral Cottage-Rear. This was our 2nd stay in one of the O'keefe's cottages and we enjoyed it as much as our first visit in Mangrove Cottage. Since I have been visiting Sarasota since my childhood in the 1940's, I found these cottages to be a home away from home as they are reminiscent of an earlier era. However, the charming decor is fresh and chic. We loved having our morning coffee or evening wine on the patio and large fenced-in yard. Being able to walk downtown and the marina made our visit stress-free. Since neither my husband or I are tech savvy, Jeff was very accommodating in coming over to instruct us in operating the TV remote. Also, for the first time in years, I did not wake up with an aching back...wonderful mattress!"

  • LOVED the Sea Winds !

    "We had a fantastic stay in this unit in May 2014. The owner was very personable and the booking process was quite easy and efficient. The unit was clean and spacious. Free Wi-Fi was a plus. The fully stocked kitchen was used daily and we loved being able to have breakfast on the balcony! The beach chairs, toys and cooler were all used daily too. A great addition to the unit. We picked up a few extras our son wanted and he was kind enough to allow us to leave them for the next little ones to use! All linens, towels and beach towels were supplied. We did bring our own face cloths however because we werent sure there would any (there was), so we left ours as well. The in unit washer and dryer was awesome! It was so nice not to have to overpack for the week and just wash and go every couple of days instead. So happy about that. You are required to carry keys at all times. To go to the beach, to get into the pool area, to get into the building, etc. And I guess to some people this is annoying, but the fact that this helps keep the condo and area SECURED is a no brainer of a tradeoff. We had no problem whatsoever carrying the keys always, and were happy it would keep non guests out of the pool and beach area, and most of all, the CONDO! We would definately return to Sea Winds!"

Naples Travel Tips

Naples often brings to mind high-end shopping and world-class culture for travelers, but this family-friendly destination draws in thousands of nature and beach lovers each year. Plus, the area's desirable climate means there's never a bad time to visit.

Naples' history dates back to the late 1860s when Roger Gordon and Joe Wiggins arrived. Then, in 1887, Walter Haldeman and his associates purchased the town and began turning it into the Naples we know today. Celebrities including Thomas Edison, Harvey Firestone and Gary Cooper all made a visit here, so this place has been attracting visitors for some time. You'll see the city's preservation of its past and the steps Naples locals are taking to keep it a top vacation destination for many years to come.

Naples Activities and Attractions

The city's location on the Gulf of Mexico means it offers plenty of beach access. There are 22 access areas in the Naples area which means you're guaranteed to find a relaxing place everyone in the family can enjoy. Whether you want to build sand castles, go for a swim or try out a new water sport, Naples is the place to do it. Some popular spots for a little fun in the sun include Parkshore Beach, Hideaway Beach, Naples Pier, Sanibel Causeway Beach and Lynn Hall Memorial Park.

Naples is also in close proximity to the Florida Everglades and Ten Thousand Islands National Wildlife Refuge. Everglades National Park is the largest subtropical wilderness in the U.S. and protects the habitat of thousands of endangered animals including manatees, crocodiles and panthers. Ten Thousand Islands is also a national park and a nursery ground for a number of marine species. Visiting Ten Thousand Islands means you can explore places such as Turner River, Sandfly Island or Halfway Creek.

The Naples Zoo and Caribbean Gardens is the perfect place to take the kids during your stay. A ticket to the zoo includes a primate expedition cruise, Meet the Keeper series, Alligator Bay hand-feeding fun, all animal exhibits, Safari Canyon Theater Shows and the historic tropical garden. Animals at the zoo include lions, kangaroos and monkeys as well as more rare creatures such as the Asian deer that barks and eats meat.

You'll want to visit historic downtown Naples during your vacation. Winter visitors first started to flood the area in the 1930s at Fifth Avenue. When the city was in its early beginnings, there were only a few businesses downtown at the junction known as Four Corners. The occasional car would pass by and the train depot was built just a block away. As more visitors stopped in the city, it blossomed and the residents of Naples wanted to preserve the past so future generations could see where it all started.

Things to Do in Naples

Shopping: Naples is well known as a shopping destination and something you'll have to experience for yourself before you leave. The top spots in the city are located along Fifth Avenue South and Third Street South. Some of the stores you'll find on Fifth Avenue include Back of the Bay Boutique, The Wind in the Willows, Kay's on the Beach, Julie's of Naples and Island Trends. Third Street South has been a shopping mecca since the 1930s. In this historic part of the city there are stores selling apparel, art and antiques.

Dining: There are restaurants, cafes and bistros throughout the city that will satisfy whatever type of food you're craving. Third Street South and Fifth Street South remain the hot spots for dining locations but don't be afraid to check out some stops off the beaten path. When you meander down Third Street, visit places such as Handsome Harry's, Sea Salt and Jane's Cafe. Restaurants and cafes on Fifth Street include Bistro 821, Chops City Grill and Altin's Cafe and Grill.

Golfing: The Naples area is known as the "Golf Capital of the World," due to the more than 80 championship golf courses that are found here - obviously, you will have to problem working on your swing or finding a fairway. There are more holes per capita in Naples than in any other community, so don't forget to bring your clubs. There are a number of public access golf clubs and courses including High Point, Panther Run, Rivera, Vanderbilt, Links of Naples, Golden Gate and Cypress Woods.

Historic Sites: Among the various historic sites in the Naples area is the Naples Seaboard Air Line Railway Station. This depot is located off Fifth Avenue South and was constructed in 1927. The Collier County Museum restored it as the Naples Depot Museum and features railroads, dugout canoes and a swamp buggy. You can visit the Naples Historical Society's Historic Palm Cottage, the former summer home of Naples founder Watler Haldeman.
