"We rented this condo for a month in July. We are a family with two toddlers. The condo was clean and comfortable. We loved every minute. The furniture was clean and well done. The kitchen was fully stocked. The linens were stocked (clean and fairly new) as well. The condo overlooked the golf course. From the lanai, we watched the fountains in the back glow at night. The development is a gated community- very safe. Neighbors were friendly and kind. My kids made some great friends while there. There was a residents' pool close enough to walk to daily. That was great for the baby because it has a large shallow portion connected to the main pool. There were clean bathrooms, a small clubhouse, and a grill at this pool. The main clubhouse had a playground, ample seating, bathrooms, screened lanais, umbrellas, and poolside food/drink service.
The location for development is very central to awesome SW Florida attractions. I75 is very close, and Rt 41 is only a few miles away. Fun and Sun Lagoon, C'Mon Children's Museum, Delnor Wiggins State Park, Lowdermilk Park, Caribbean Gardens/Naples Zoo, Barefoot Beach, 5th Ave, 3rd Ave, Naples Pier and City Dock, Tin City, Venetian Village, Mercato, Gulf Coast Town Center, Miromar Outlets, Coastland Center Mall, Coconut Point, Fort Myers Beach, Bonita Springs, Regional Southwest Airport. . . were all close drives from this central location.
In addition, there is a Publix Supermarket, a giant Walmart, and a Super Target just outside of the development. It does not get any more convenient. Yet, you'd never know these stores are so close because the country club setting in The Strand is so serene and residential.
The owner and the house manager were friendly and responsive. We hated to leave. Everything was so beautiful. We would stay again for sure."
