About the property

Ole at Lely Resort is a special place with Mediterranean style architecture, beautifully landscaped green space from Palm trees to flowering shrubs and walkways that lead to the Village Centre. A cluster of buildings gracefully encircle a fountain and flank the entrance to the 2 storey Community Centre which houses the resort style pool with cascading waterfall, pool side service, tiki huts, childrens pool area and spa hot tub. Here people gather at the sidewalk cafe for morning coffee or work out in the state of the art Gym and aerobics studio. Check out the library, the business centre / computer lab with 8 stations and printers. A Pub for casual meals with TV's & pool tables, an ice cream parlour, internet cafe and a classic style movie theatre with free showings on the weekends, round out the offerings here at the social hub of Ole.

About Heather Decker

We are a Canadian couple in our early 60's dreaming of retiring in our new townhome in Ole in a few years.

Heather Decker purchased this condo in 2011

Why Heather Decker chose Lely Resort

In 2009 we visited friends who had just purchased a condo in Ole and we loved it. After two more visits escaping the cold and snow to the warmth of Naples we knew we had to buy. In December of 2011, after looking at many properties in Naples, Ft. Myers and places in between we were still drawn to Ole. We made the leap when our realtor showed us the bright spacious new Santa Monica unit overlooking a Quad pool. We furnished the home in January and immediately rented it out for February and March.

What makes this condo unique

Ole at Lely's location just outside of Naples and close to Marco Island make it ideal. We love the green space, flowers, fountains, architecture and all the amazing amenities here that we did not find elsewhere. The community is friendly and there is a pride of place here. The property is well cared for.

The region has much to offer from arts and theatre, music, sports of every kind, state parks and preserves for hiking and wildlife viewing, a zoo, a beautiful Botanical Garden, shopping, beaches ...the list goes on.

Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

This home at Ole was an ideal location - close enough to downtown Naples and only 20 minutes to Marco Island. The home was very neat, clean and comfortable. The only reason it was not rated a '5' was because there were many stairs. If that doesn't bother you then you will find this a great place to stay. We enjoyed the 'quad pool' which was very convenient and steps away, as well as the large 'resort pool' which we were able to walk to, as well. The owners were extremely nice and I would recommend this property.

It is good to hear you took advantage of both pools and enjoyed the comforts of our home. We will remind future guests that our townhouse is on several levels and has stairs. Thank you for recommending our property!

Lovely Stay in Ole

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Ole. The owners, Heather and Chris, were lovely. Their place is nicely decorated and has everything you need for your stay. It is also very clean and comfortable. We loved the convenience of the quad pool, if we didn't want to go to the community pool. Ole is well located with a 10 minute drive to the beaches at Marco Island and a 15 minute drive to Naples beaches. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants an enjoyable stay in Naples.

The Nicest One in Ole Yet.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in various units in Ole over the past years. We have to say this unit is by far the nicest one we have rented. It is very clean and well appointed. It is tastefully decorated with two large bedrooms upstairs. We also enjoyed the quad pool, which you can see from the kitchen window. It was never overly crowded, and we always found a seat. This unit has everything you need to have a wonderful stay in Naples. It is well situated between the town and Marco Island. Chris and Heather were wonderful to talk to and were always available to answer any questions.

Very pleasant, nicely furnished townhouse rental in Naples

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had the pleasure of renting this well furnished, immaculate, well located townhouse in Lely's Ole for the month of January, 2016. To begin with, a one month rental is difficult to find. This two story townhouse was tastefully decorated, had a very large master bedroom with two large walk-in closets, and a modern bathroom with his and her sinks. It was no more than a fifteen minute walk to the town center where the gym, restaurant, and immense swimming pool were located. The owners provided two new bikes, beach chairs and umbrellas for diversions. The townhouse was in a courtyard of maybe twelve townhouses, and had its own satellite pool, with many lounge chairs and ample shade. Shopping was nearby, and Marco Island, which we visited several times, was only twenty minutes by car.

The total experience was trouble free, relaxing, and a wonderful opportunity to explore beautiful Naples. The owners were very pleasant as well as interested in our having a very pleasant stay. I would recommend this rental without hesitation.

Naples Escape

  • 5 of 5

Chris and Heather's Naples home provides a comfortable and friendly environment in a home away from home. Their lovely home has a well equipped kitchen, comfortable living room, large master bedroom, and a wonderful pool and BBQ area in the quad. We have enjoyed 2 visits to their home because it sits in wonderful location with access to Naples and Marco Island. Thanks again for a great winter respite from the snow.

Great Townhome in Ole

  • 5 of 5

This Townhome is lovely. It is well positioned, away from the noisy main road, with a West facing lanai - great for alfresco lunch or a sundowner, and, as a 'quad' unit, backs onto a courtyard with small pool. On our arrival it was in perfect condition and immaculately clean, equipped with everything we needed, including 2 bikes and beach chairs etc., though it probably wouldn't suit anyone who has a problem with stairs. It's just a short walk from the Ole village centre with it's great facilities, and Ole is well positioned between Naples and Marco Island, though, surprisingly, there seems to be a shortage of good local restaurants. To get a table at a busy time always involved a wait. We found getting the Ole management approval a bit bureaucratic, but that was no fault of the owners, who were quick to answer queries and unfailingly helpful throughout. Please note the prices quoted are all inclusive, so it's also good value. Altogether a very successful vacation and we would love to return.
