Manager info

Year Purchased: 2003

About: I grew up in Naples and attended St Ann's grade school and Naples High School. Go Eagles! I then went to Edison in Ft Myers and The University of Florida. While at Edison College, I met my husband, Ron. We were married in Naples, and he did a tour in Viet Nam. I taught school in Naples and in Ft Lauderdale, then we returned to Bloomington IN. I taught briefly in IN, and then managed rental property for IU students. There I learned to say Go Hoosiers ! I am still a Gator at heart. Ron worked in development and in Real Estate as well as managing our rental property. We sold our rentals in Indiana, and decided to invest in Vacation Homes in Naples, so we could return to Naples where we both loved the beach, golf, fishing, and the weather. Here we have reconnected with family and friends from long ago. We also have enjoyed meeting our guests from all over the world. We love our Midwest guests, but we also love becoming friends with guests from other parts of the US, Europe, Canada, and South America. We feel very fortunate and blessed to be in a wonderful climate and city, doing work we enjoy, and making new friends along the way.

Why Naples Park (Naples, FL, USA):
We love the location, close to Vanderbilt Beach, the Ritz Carlton and LaPlaya, Mercato and many shops and dining opportunities. We are just about 9 miles south of Miomar Outlets and Coconut Pointe Mall. We are just about 9 miles north of Fifth Avenue and Third Street shops and dining. We are close to Trader Joes, Grocery stores, and shops. We are less than a mile to Mercato. It is one of our favorite spots to dine. The Happy Hours are wonderful. The desserts at Whole Foods are wonderful as well as the selection of food they provide. Many people enjoy the shops and the activities like car shows, movies and live music. There is something for everyone at Mercato.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We are so close to everything Naples has to offer, but the close proximity to the beach and Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park on the beach is a unique advantage for us in Naples Park and Vanderbilt Beach area.
