No need to take a cruise to escape to the islands! Bahama Breeze is your gateway to an amazing villa that feels like you have arrived some place special. Pass through the front door and the bright kitchen with plantation shutters and pineapple accented chandelier welcome you to a slower pace - an island pace.

This 2 BR/ 2 BA (2 BR with den / King size sleeper sofa) end-unit is flooded with natural light that streams through windows found in every room in the home. If you love spaces filled with natural light, this is your home. Bahama Breeze sleeps 6 comfortably. The large open concept kitchen functions like a single family home as it integrates with the morning room and dining area. 10 foot ceilings, curved archways, built-in wine racks, corian counters and tile back splashes welcome you to linger over breakfast or enjoy the morning sun as it slips through the windows. Going out to one of Naples many restaurants or cooking in, you'll have everything you'll need at your fingertips for a perfect vacation in this home.

Right past the kitchen's bar style counter-top you'll find the open dining area with island style glass table for larger gatherings. The spacious living room offers comfortable seating for 6 and a large screen flat screen TV for catching up on news or watching a movie with surround sound audio. It opens up to the sunny 24x12 ft. screened lanai offering an outdoor kitchen with Jenn Air grill and cook top, wine fridge, an additional fridge and sink for entertaining guests or simply relaxing on your own. Here you can take your meals at the outdoor dining built for 6 or rest on one of two chaise lounges. The lanai offers great views of Amelia lake, lush palms and a waterfall in the distance.

The lanai offers direct access to the generously sized master bedroom with flat screen TV and ceiling fan. Island style furnishings will make you think you are spending a night in Nassau! Sleep to the sounds of cascading water while resting atop the pillow top bedding. In the mornings, the only sounds you'll wake to are those of birds, the fountain and breezes blowing through the palms outside your door. The expansive master bath provides dual vanity sinks, a stand-up shower with stone shower bench and closet space that Ernest Hemingway could have written books about!

In another part of the home, pocket doors close off to form a private guest suite with bedroom and sunny en-suite bathroom with bath. As with all of the rooms within Bahama Breeze, ceiling fan provides gentle cooling when you are not quite ready to turn on the AC. Back in the main living area, double doors from the living room open to a den / third bedroom. This den / third bedroom is great for a late afternoon read or as a bedroom for visiting guests. Here a window provides yet another sunny and inviting space.

The home provides modern conveniences such as flat panel televisions, high speed internet, quality pillow-top bedding and all of Falling Waters wonderful amenities including the 14,000 sq ft pool, tennis courts, putting range and bocce courts.

About Matt Crudello

The owner of Bahama Breeze (Matt) grew up in Northern NJ and always dreamed about having a place somewhere warm. After my parents Vincent and Ruth rented for 5 seasons in Falling Waters, they decided to purchase a villa with me (VRBO #439959 - Paradise Found). I liked the community so much, I decided to purchase this condo in 2013.

Matt Crudello purchased this condo in 2013

Why Matt Crudello chose Naples

After wintering in Siesta Key for several years, we found Falling Waters and never looked elsewhere. We're confident that Falling Waters (and Naples) will exceed your highest expectations- peaceful, beautiful, friendly and lush.

Why choose Bahama Breeze? The interior underwent a major renovation in 2011. From the flooring to the cabinets, new furnishings and TVs in 2013 - it's ready for your stay! All of this is to ensure that you have an absolutely exquisite stay.

The large 24x12 lanai with outdoor Jenn-Air grill and wine fridge is hard to beat on a sunny afternoon!

What makes this condo unique

This property overlooks a lake with a large fountain and waterfall at one end. It's a peaceful oasis far from any sounds of cars. All you will hear is the sound of birds in the morning. It's wonderful! The fountain lulls you to sleep with its soothing sounds from 830 AM to 1100PM. After dark, its lights provide a beautiful back drop. And if you are in luck, the wind just might blow the fountain's cool mist on a warm winter afternoon to cool you.The detached 1 car garage will ensure your car (and your stuff) stays out of Florida's strong rays and it makes for easy storage of the units bikes and beach chairs provided for your use.

Everything you need! And more!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved to stay here. The apartment has everything you need (and more) and is comfortable. Even the garage is filled with beach accessories like umbrellas, chairs, kids sand toys, floated etc.

We went to the beach every day and it took us about 10 min to get there. After the beach we used the pool located in falling waters to finish the day. The pool is great as well!

Matt was very easy to communicate with and absolutely trustworthy. We highly recommend this place and we WILL come back!!!!!!

Owner's Response: Hi Tatjana, Thanks for much for your family's visit to our condo 'Bahama Breeze' for your family vacation. We know what a hassle (and waste of money) it is to have to buy all of the beach items like coolers and sand toys and bikes (which can't back on the plane!), so I'm really pleased we can provide them so you can get straight to the beach. I'm so glad that you enjoyed your stay, the beach, food, and wonderful pool. If ever back in Naples, we'd love to have you and your family return. Thank you, Matt

Falling Waters was everything we'd hoped for...and more!

  • 5 of 5

The Falling Waters community is warm and inviting. The people who live there are friendly and helpful. The outdoor pool is fabulous and refreshing. The condo we stayed in was beautiful and clean. It had everything we needed, including information about sights to see and places to dine. Matt, our condo owner, was great about communicating everything we needed to know about our condo. Everything went smoothly for our arrival, our stay, and our departure. We visited the Naples Preserve, Naples Botanical Gardens, Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary and kayaked in Manatee Park. It was wonderful to dine at Pinchers, The Local, and Deep Lagoon. I will highly recommend this property to all my friends and relatives for future trips to the Naples area. It was a fabulously memorable time!

Owner's Response: Hi Jane, I'm so glad that you found Falling Waters as welcoming as we do. It sounds like you were able to make the most of your time in Naples, seeing several places I haven't even visited yet! Next time you return, check out 'Steamers' It's a great small seafood restaurant in a strip mall, and the food is incredible! So glad that you enjoyed your stay and felt like you were 'home'! In 2017, I'm going to put together a best of Naples booklet. I'll be sure to include some of your suggestions from this post! Thanks again! Matt

Absolutely beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay! What a beautiful, relaxing place to stay in Florida!

Well maintained and all the conveniences of home. One of the best, most gorgeous pools I have ever seen!

Thank you, thank you for keeping this property up so nicely. We'll be back for sure!

Owner's Response: Hi Kathy! I consider December the 'secret month' in Naples. It's not quite high season yet, but the lights on 5th Ave, the clear blue skies, and the lack of humidity makes it near perfect. So glad you were able to enjoy Naples at one of its prettiest seasons! I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. I've traveled all over the world and it's always welcomed when a home is kept up, broken things are fixed, and the owner responds to inquiries promptly. I use these experiences to guide management of both this and the other vrbo property (439959) I manage in Falling Waters. Please visit us again on your next trip! Matt

Best apartment we have ever rented...

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Florida a couple of times and usually stayed in a Hotel. This time we decided to rent an apartment - lucky us!

It came with all you can dream of: fully equipped Kittchen, TV in living room and two bedrooms, plenty of room, even a 2nd fridge on the terrace, boats, fins, buckets for the Kids to Play with at the pool, and, and, and, ....

At the lake right by the apartment the kids could feed the ducks, we saw plenty of fish and even otters.

Matt always replied per E-Mail within 30 min, whenever we had questions. The check-in process was easier than in a Hotel. Very quiet and safe neighboorhood too!

Will definitely return.

Owner's Response: Hi Chris, I'm thrilled that you and your family enjoyed your stay. I'm glad that the bikes, tennis rackets, chairs, umbrellas, etc. were put to good use. It's so much easier living like a local when you don't have to buy all that stuff or rent it just for the week. Come back and visit us again soon! Matt

One of the best rental experiences we ever had

  • 5 of 5

We have visited SW Florida several times and always rented houses or condos. Hands down, this was the best experience we had so far. This year we were quite late in putting our plans together and therefore contacted Matt through VRBO only approx. 2 weeks prior to departure. Ever since we were extremely happy with our choice and the entire handling. Swift response, easy communication and paperwork via email, secure payment through credit card and perfect arrival instructions. Matt is fantastic to deal with.

The condo itself had plenty of room for our family of five ( 3 teenagers) and Falling Waters is a nice and safe community with a fascinating pool. Inside the condo we found absolutely everything you can think of: wireless internet (important for the kids), flat TVs, all household appliances you can think of incl. a quick and easy to use washing machine + dryer etc. The garage is full of very useful beach stuff (beach chairs, umbrellas), add one of the cooling boxes provided and your beach or boat experience is ready to start. Great! You definitely need a car. Frequent visitors to Florida know that - so just for our fellow Germans: distances in the US are somewhat different to the average German village. Naples and its chic 5th Av. South however is just a 10 minute ride and so are many beautiful beaches like Naples Pier or Lowdermilk (has showers, toilets and parking directly by the beach). If you still prefer to ride a bike - voila, you will find two in the garage.

Countless public golf courses nearby…rent a boat for a day and ship to Lovers Key with your cooling box stuffed with some food to be enjoyed on the boat…play on one of the two well maintained tennis courts inside Falling Waters, spend a lazy day by the pool, rent a DVD for free at Falling Waters…or, or, or. Endless possibilities and Matt's condo is a great hub for all of these. Excellent value for money, particularly during off-peak Summer months. A big thumbs up and many thanks to Matt from the five of us.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad that you and your family had a great trip in Naples. I'm pleased that you found all of our preparation for your trip useful for a great vacation. It sounds like you were able to make the most of your time in Naples (I haven't even made it boating or golfing yet!) I know that when I'm go on vacation, I love to live like it's my home with all of the extras like bikes, floats, tennis rackets. Just like your second home! We hope that if your travels allow you to return to Naples that we'll be able to welcome you back to Bahama Breeze.

Wonderful southwest Florida! 10 minute drive to the Gulf beaches with easy access to restaurants, the arts, the everglades and shopping. Downtown Old Naples is a beautiful walkable community with lights sparkling in the palm trees, musicians and sidewalk cafes offering food for all price ranges. Galleries and museums give way to stately palms between downtown and the Gulf beaches. It's not to be missed!

Falling Waters is an amazing gated community with lush tropical plantings, lake views, brick walkways and the largest pool in Southwest Florida with its own waterfall and islands just 10 mins east of Old Naples. Come see why this is such a highly sought after community. Its amenities and tranquility are without equal in Naples.

It's an easy 20 minute drive to Marco Island for amazing seafood (Snooks) and an easy 3 stop lights and 90 minute drive to Fort Lauderdale.

Visit Naples for your next Florida vacation! You won't regret it!
