  • Nice home!

    "My family and I stayed at this rental home for a week at the end of July. We had a wonderful time. My kids really enjoyed the pool (ages four and six). There were six adults, one teenager, two little kids, and a dog. There was plenty of room. We never once felt like we were all on top of each other. The kitchen served us well, we cooked several dinners, lunches, and breakfasts too. The location was nice, close to a Trader Joe's, Publix (grocery store), shops, and downtown Naples. The beach was about a 15 minute drive but it wasn't a bad drive. We had three cars between us and there was plenty of parking. The week we stayed, the city was doing road maintenance on the street but it wasn't really an issue. We really enjoyed a lot of what Naples had to offer (sunset cruise, paddle boarding, days at the beach, miniature golf with the little kids, and seafood restaurants) then returned home at the end of the day. The day we arrived we noticed the air conditioner wasn't cooling. We called the property manager listed on the contact sheet provided. He was able to get a repairman out that night (around 8pm) and the a/c was fixed. Yay! Later on the in the week, we went to use the grill on the back porch and noticed the propane tank was empty. My father went to Walmart and bought an exchange. I emailed the owner about the issue and he promptly responded that he would reimburse me for the expense with my security deposit (he did). All in all, we enjoyed our stay at this house. I would recommend to others."

  • Unbeatable Value in Lely

    "We're just back from a week in Lely staying at this fantastic home. I'm not quite sure what was better, the house itself or the outstanding service we received from the owner Gary. The house was beautifully decorated with upscale modern appliances and conveniences, beautifully kept, and immaculately clean. All the technology worked perfectly, with everything labelled to make life easy. The location itself is scenic, quiet and very relaxing. Gary was an absolute treat to work with. He's responsive, professional and there to look after pretty much anything you need. We have rented many times in Naples, and never found a combination of house/owner like this. I would come back to this place in a second."

  • Our best stay in Naples! :)

    "My husband and myself had a wonderful time in David and Judy's guest house. We have been going to Naples for 8 years and this has definitely been our best stay! The house is clean, well equipped and so relaxed. We were surrounded by a beautiful garden and we had use of a lovely pool. This house is also the perfect location for the beach and cafés and restaurants on 3rd street ( Tonys on 3rd is fab for a coffee and cake!). The owners were so helpful and did everything to make sure we had a great holiday. Thank you to David and Judy for a fabulous stay and we can't wait to go back. C & R"

All accommodations were great, owners were very easy to work with and accommodating. Listing accurately reflected the property and we would recommend this property to anyone looking to enjoy the sun and fun in Naples."

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.
