About Richard and Carol Whitney

Carol is a teacher and author, Richard is a practicing physician. We love to spend time in cities and countries which are rich in culture and offer beautiful scenery and weather. We enjoy a variety of activities including boating and tennis as well as great restaurants and friendly people. We love to read, lie by the pool, visit museums and attend the Naples theater, which offers a wonderful variety of shows. We have found all of this in the Naples area.

Richard and Carol Whitney purchased this house in 2010

Why Richard and Carol Whitney chose Naples

We wanted an upscale area that offers a smorgasbord of cultural activities, beach, beautiful weather, friendly people, great shopping, and excellent restaurants. We found all of this and more in Naples, Florida and the surrounding areas. Nearby are Marco Island, Captiva Island, Sanabel Island, Bonita Beach, Ft. Myers and much more are within 20 - 40 minutes from our centrally located home.

What makes this house unique

Location, location, location. Beaches are 7 - 10 minutes from our home. Dozens of great restaurants and fabulous shopping areas are within minutes of Brynwood. A Starbucks and First Watch are within walking distance of our home, and offer a warm and friendly atmosphere. The weather is very attractive, especially since we live in Ohio and very much enjoy the sun.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We arrived at your beautiful home last evening around 11 pm and found everything just as you described...actually even better! The pool is stunning at night, so relaxing!

We can't thank you enough for sharing your lovely home with absolutely exceeds our expectations!

With Much Gratitude,

Great Naples Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We have been traveling to Naples for years, and the Whitney home in Brynwood Preserve is by far our favorite place to stay. The location is perfect, and the home amenities will truly make your visit memorable. The outside pool and lanai are beautiful and peaceful – your own private oasis. The kitchen is stocked with upgraded appliances, and the owners have taken great care to organize the home’s features making their use “user friendly”. We have stayed here multiple times, and couldn’t be happier with this find. Thank you so much Carol and Richard for sharing your lovely home. Can’t wait to come back!!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a wonderful vacation in this beautiful property it was exactly the type of place we like to stay in. Spotlessly clean with a south facing pool and spa. in a friendly community and great location. The owners have clearly taken great care to provide every amenity with a warm and homely feeling (a home from home). They have also been a pleasure to correspond with. We would highly recommend this property and hope to return.

Great home base for Naples vacation

  • 5 of 5

This tastefully furnished and decorated vacation home is the perfect retreat and base of operations for a Naples vacation. We found it exactly as represented in the photos, super-clean and maintained to a very high standard. It's located in a quiet and secure gated community, within a short drive of stores, north side beaches and downtown Naples. The owners are well-organized and very accommodating. What a treat to have our own pool and covered lanai. There's even a grand piano!

Home away from home plus a pool!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful month at this beautiful home! We enjoyed everything about the property from the inviting decor, the relaxing pool, the music system throughout, the location and so much more. The only thing we did not like was having to leave!

The owners have very clearly put a lot of care and attention to every detail and,in fact, our first reaction was that the pictures did not do the home justice. We would happily recommend this property and rent it again!

Owner's Response: It was so nice working with you and knowing that we could rest easy every in your care of our home. You gave us such pleasure in knowing that you took care of every detail, just as if our home was your home. We hope you are able to return. God Bless, Dr Carol

This property is a quiet and serene heaven. It is spacious and has everything one could desire to make one's stay perfect. Most of our time when at the house was spent enjoying the beautiful pool area. The pool was heated to a comfortable temperature which is not usual in other properties in which we have stayed in January. That was such a pleasant surprise. The home was spotless and well maintained and the owners were very concerned that everything was to our satisfaction. The neighbors were very friendly and the area is lovely for walking. We highly recommend this property and hope to return.

Owner's Response: It is indeed our pleasure to work with such wonderful and appreciative tenants. The house was spotless upon their time of departure. It was obvious that they appreciated the time and effort we have put into having the haven that they described. These lovely people were the perfect tenants and we especially welcome people who treat our home with such respect.
