Property was very well maintained in a lovely residential area
The owners were most facilitating and welcoming. The home was lovely and fairly easy access to all amenities. Pleasant walking areas near two lakes. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Would highly recommend this place. Pam Patterson
THANK YOU FOR THE REVIEW. AS WE TOLD YOU, YOU ARE ALWAYS WELCOME TO COME BACK.
People here call it "Paradise"
Beautiful spot in Naples! Not a gated community but we felt very safe. Additionally the home has a security system for added peace of mind. The property is lovely and well-equipped. Owners Jill and Leo were extremely accommodating and easy to deal with. Close to grocery store, drug store and other shopping needs. Short drive to old downtown Naples, the beach and Naples Pier. Access to two separate community pools, tennis and pickle ball courts. Walking the paths around two inland lakes was a daily routine for us. Internet and wifi is available as well as access to a desktop pc and a laptop. Cable and Netflix are also available.
We just had an absolutely great time here and we look forward to coming back.
Thank you Jill and Leo!!
WE APPRECIATE THE SWIFTS' REVIEW, BUT IT IS WE WHO ARE GRATEFUL. THEY WERE SUPERB GUESTS. OUR ONLY REGRET IS THAT WE DIDN'T MEET THEM IN PERSON, AND HOPE TO RECTIFY THAT IN THE FUTURE.
Very enjoyable 2.5 months. Would love to stay here again. Fantastic neighborhood.
Could use flat--screen LCD TV with size in 32-40-in range. Could also use microwave oven with a rotating table. Otherwise, a great facility.
