  • Canal Views and Beach Access

    "This was our first trip to Naples for our party of 4 adults and 4 children with ages ranging from 14 months – 60 years old. We chose this house mainly because it was across the canal from my Dad and stepmother’s house, it had a screened-in swimming pool and beach access at the end of the street. The house was immaculate when we arrived. The kitchen was well stocked and was used daily. The open floor plan made the house seem very spacious and allowed people in the kitchen to be part of the conversations going on in the other areas of the house. Next to the kitchen is a laundry room which is always nice to have, especially when you’re traveling with children. Pocket doors enabled us to close off the bedrooms so that people could enjoy an afternoon nap or just some quiet time. The large dining room table allowed the four generations to gather around for meals together usually followed by games. We also used the poolside grill almost every day as well. Several times we’d come back from the beach and the kids would shower off the sand outside then jump into the pool while we threw some hot dogs and hamburgers or bar-b-q on the grill. Since the pool and lanai are screened-in, a lot of time was spent outside because we didn’t have to deal with any pesky insects. Although we didn’t have a boat, the dock made it very convenient for my dad to come by and pick us up in his boat. The beach access was at the end of the street and led to a very nice, uncrowded area. Walking to the beach to watch the beautiful sunsets became a nightly routine. On the fourth of July, we walked to the beach to watch the fireworks then returned to the house and watched more fireworks up and down the canal behind the house. The festivities ended with an amazing firework display we watched through our front door, which was being shot off from a barge on the canal across the street from us! We loved everything about this house. There is a Trader Joe’s, Publix store and Super Wal-Mart just down the street and many restaurants and cafes in the area. Not only was my dad able to play several rounds of golf with his great granddaughter, he was also there when his youngest great grandson took his first steps and began walking all over the house by the end of our trip. Needless to say, some wonderful memories were made on this vacation and in this house!!! Thank you, Maureen, for making the rental process very easy and for sharing your lovely home with us. We hope to return again next year!!!"

  • Simply Heaven!

    "We couldn't have wished for a more beautiful condo and view. The condo's decor is masterfully furnished with an eye for beauty and a beach lover's delight. It seems every day we were here, we found a new surprise to admire - each piece is unique and seems to have been chosen with love, care, and comfort in mind. The view from both inside and out on the lanai is breathtaking. Since the window stretches across the condo, it actually brings the outside inside. Looking out from inside, we easily felt part of the gorgeous and carefree experience that the beach offered. Sitting outside, we also enjoyed the constant relaxing entertainment of the shore. We watched heron, dolphins, pelicans, seagulls, along with many boats constantly on the move in the gulf. Since we were on the third floor, we could hear the waves lapping on the shore and almost reach out and touch some of the boats. Each day we spent swimming laps in one of the three pools surrounded by palm trees. We chose the one that was nearly always empty, so it was almost our private pool. We were interested in just sitting back and unwinding and that is what we did! But we could easily see how a family with children, a group who wants to get together, or people who want to see some interesting sites would relish this trip. The owner, Patti, was an absolute pleasure and very helpful in giving us advice as we planned our vacation. We can almost guarantee you won't want to leave when your vacation is over!!"

  • Wonderful Staycation!!!

    "This property was ideal for my family and I. We live full time in Bradenton, FL but wanted an excuse to get away and stay somewhere with our two grown children and their spouses with no worries. Our girls were able to bring their dogs and they thoroughly enjoyed running around the property. This property had everything we needed and we were as comfortable as we are in our own homes! We will definitely try to make this a yearly event with our family and still joke about life at "The Compound.""
