  • One of the BEST rentals we have ever booked!!!!

    "Our recent stay at this property was so fun and relaxing we hated to leave. Owners, Fred and Shelly, were so gracious and accommodating to all of our needs. Their home offered everything one could wish for......Beautifully decorated, very clean inside and out, spacious rooms with a beautiful master bedroom and two decent size additional bedrooms, three full baths and a large half bath, a large kitchen fully stocked with plenty of seating. The outdoor area was outstanding, spacious, very private with the screened lanai, large grill, two lovely spacious seating areas with large umbrella's for those who want to avoid the sun, loungers, glider, heated pool, pool toys, bikes and canoe. Could not ask for more. Most outstanding was the stunning sunsets right from our own private backyard/pool area. In addition to this beautiful home was its proximity to restaurants, shopping, grocery stores, beaches.....all walking or biking distance away. And only a few miles by car is 5th Avenue South and 3rd Street South full of upscale shops, fantastic restaurants, and more beaches to enjoy the spectacular Florida sunsets. This lovely home easily accommodated us three couples that rented this property for the week and for part of that week our daughter joined us making it seven adults. Plenty Plenty of room. Thank you Fred and Shelly.....your graciousness is evident in this lovely rental home. We had such a memorable, relaxing, very enjoyable, fun vacation. We will be back."

  • Great Spring Break

    "Our family just returned from a wonderful Easter Spring Break vacation in Naples. Our condo at the Regatta was perfect for our family of 6. The unit was clean and well appointed with a lovely view of the pool area. Additionally, the location of the unit was great with easy walking distance to Vanderbilt beach and access to shopping."

  • Fabulous Lely Resort Villa!

    "This wonderful villa was the perfect spot for our family Christmas vacation in beautiful Naples, Florida! The description of the house was 100% accurate The villa was comfortable, clean, and spacious; accommodating our family of six extremely well. We loved the exquisite designer decor which surpassed the pictures posted on-line. The villa was very well-equipped with all the hotel amenities. We cooked a Christmas dinner for 10 and had everything we needed. The private pool and hot tub were well-used by our children and grand-children. It was delightful to have access to the Player's Club with the lagoon pools, bocce ball courts, restaurants, gym facilities, and spa. The location of the villa was perfect - on a quiet cul-de-sac within an immaculately kept community. Every morning we awoke to sunshine streaming into the house and with coffee or tea in hand, we watched golfers teeing off on hole #2 of the Flamingo course. A very relaxing and quiet environment! We appreciated having the use of bikes and cycled throughout the Lely property. Access to golf courses, grocery stores, and shopping was easy as well as the villa is in close proximity to downtown Naples and the beach. More than anything, I cannot praise Shelly (owner) enough for the way in which she dealt with our booking, provided information on the house, area, etc and ensured we had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. This is a luxury destination with an affordable price! We will definitely be returning in the future!"

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.
