  • Snowbird's Paradise!

    "We rented this lovely unit for two months and loved it. The unit is clean and spacious and has everything you need. The beds are comfortable with a lovely master suite. The property/grounds around the pool are lovely with lots of opportunities for photographs. The resort style pool with food and beverage service was a bonus! We loved having a garage and an electric grill. I rented a bike and enjoyed riding through the neighboring communities and around the lake. The neighborhood residents were extremely friendly and welcoming and we enjoyed walking our dog with the other dog owners. We have rented in Naples for years and this unit is in an upscale community! The owner of this unit provided multiple means for communication and he was prompt and courteous with all requests and questions! We love this unit so much that we are returning again!"

  • Our holiday retreat

    "The Beach House was indeed, sumptuous, lovely, clean and comfortable. It had a very homely, welcoming atmosphere - unlike many villas we have stayed in where you feel you are staying in someone's 'business', with lots of instructions plastered about. We would definitely recommend this home to anyone wishing to stay in Naples as it was conveniently located to all amenities and the beach was located nearby and attractions such as Tin City were located a short drive away. Thank you, Sandie & Des! :-)"

  • great time

    "We had a wonderful time in naples. The condo was extremely clean and comfortable. Everything you could need for your trip was there. A few complaints i have are the outside patio lights didnt work and we were unable to change them with the lightbulbs provided, also the water pressure in the master shower was not sufficient for my personal needs, but overall we enjoyed our stay."

  • Retirement Celebration of a lifetime!

    "I decided to treat myself to the "snowbird" life after 35 years of educating children in Michigan. What a fabulous retreat Karen, Tom and their beautiful Cherry Oaks carriage home provided for us. We had a blast and enjoyed all that Fiddlers Creek had to offer. The Walsh family are the best and go out of their way to make sure a fantastic stay is had by all. Their living areas are clean, comfortable, spacious and homey. I did not want to leave! Reflective times sitting out on the lanai watching the golfers and sunsets were among my favorites. I made many new friends in Florida because I lived at the pools, tennis courts and walking/bike trails. Many of my new friends call and text me daily. I feel like I left a "home away from home" that was a memory of a lifetime. I loved the staff and everyone went out of their way to make sure a 5 star experience was had. I can not wait to go back next year! A brilliant celebration of life, new chapters, friendships and active lifestyle were received on a daily basis. Thanks Tom and Karen for sharing your little slice of heaven with a Kalamazoo gal who loves to see her son and sun!!!! It made the start of my retirement a very special time. I tried to sit out on my lanai when I came back to Michigan but it was raining and 50 degrees....just not the same experience....Life is good, especially when shared at Cherry Oaks within Fiddlers Creek. Thanks for the memories....I'm very thankful!"

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.
