"We spent 10 weeks here (January through mid-March) and really enjoyed it. The house was perfect, nicely appointed, and the outside lanai / pool was used continuously. The owner is great to work with, and very, very helpful - she helped us arrange for cleaning services, and guided us how to upgrade the cable service for our stay so we wouldn't miss our favorite cable shows on AMC, HBO, or Showtime. Our dog loved the enclosed backyard. The house provides all beach gear (chairs, floats, boogie boards, noodles), a Florida State Park pass so you could visit Delnor Wiggins beach park (3/4 of a mile by foot, bike, or car) or nearby Lovers Key, and two bicycles to use when the Wiggins parking lot is full. We used the outdoor grill frequently, and loved having a garage door opener and garage for our car. The WiFi was fast, and convenient. Aside from visiting the local beaches and spending time on the home's lanai, we attended several performances at Artis Naples (recommendation - look and book early!), played lots of golf, and shopped for local real estate. This location is perfect for visiting anywhere from Fort Myers to Naples (and even Marco Island) Miami and Fort Lauderdale are a just two hour drive across Alligator Alley from here, and the Everglades are closer. You're close to shopping (from elegant Coconut Point and Mercado and Naples itself, to the outlet mall at Miramar, about 20 minutes north of here. One mile from a Publix grocery store and ABC liqour store (at Tamiani Trail and Immolakee). Lots of great restaurants, but if you are here during January through March, you'll need reservations almost anywhere due to the flood of seasonal visitors.
All in all, we loved it. Especially when we checked the weather reports back home in Michigan. You can get some "cold snaps" down here (occasional lows in the 40s, highs in the low 60's), but most of the time January through March it stayed in the low 60's at night and the high 70's during the day - with mostly sun even when it was cool."
