About the property

2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, sleeps up to 6 persons (4 adults and 2 children maximum)

Our 1st(GB)/2nd(US)-floor apartment in Lakeside at the World Tennis Center suits both couples and families. It has a double bedroom (king-size bed/two walk-in closets/en-suite shower room), a twin bedroom (closet, and bathroom adjacent), and a sofa bed in the lounge (for young children only). A spacious lounge/diner, with table and seating for up to six persons, has access to a screened, west-facing lanai (balcony) overlooking a lake and equipped with patio tables and chairs. A fully-equipped kitchen adjoins the dining area. There is a separate washing machine/dryer area. The apartment is air-conditioned, has cable TV (lounge and master bedroom), a DVD player (US region DVDs only), radio/cassette player, telephone, and free WiFi. There is a dedicated parking space and guest parking. We transfer our rights to access W.T.C tennis courts (no court fees), swimming pools, outdoor spa, and clubhouse/restaurant (a registration fee of $100.00 is payable by tenants locally).

Downtown Naples shops and beaches are a 5/10 minutes drive away. The Everglades National Park is a half-hour drive away. A guest said, 'Having a great time; it is a real pleasure to return to your lovely apartment each evening'.

Tennis Details:

The World Tennis Club (W.T.C.) is a major Florida Gulf Coast tennis facility and is the central feature of the community in which our apartment is located. We transfer our tennis rights to our guests (they must pay a registration fee to W.T.C. of $100.00 per rental - irrespective of the number of guests or the duration of the rental - for temporary memberships).. This gives free access to 17 high quality tennis courts, a pro-shop, and a clubhouse with bar and restaurant (seasonal). Pro-tennis tuition is available, exhibition matches are played frequently, and regular tournaments are arranged. Adjoining the clubhouse is a large, heated swimming pool and a jacuzzi (spa tub). There is a second, smaller heated swimming pool just round the corner from our apartment. Special meals and barbeque evenings are arranged at the restaurant in conjunction with events. The W.T.C. office provides a monthly calendar of events.

Golf Details:

Naples is a very big location for golf. Although there isn't a golf course on site at W.T.C., Naples has many public and private golf courses, several of which are close by our apartment. Details can be found on the Naples Tourism website. The nearby Quail Run Golf Club may offer reduced fees to W.T.C. guests (ask at W.T.C. for details of when these apply and the fees)

Beach and Wildlife Details:

Naples has a lovely, nine-mile long, white shell-sand beach, which is safe for children. It stretches from south of Naples Town Pier to beyond Lowdermilk Beach Park, about 1 mile from the apartment. There are many access points to this beach which is also good for shell collecting. There are changing facilities, showers, and a cafe at Lowdermilk Park and showers and toilets at Naples Town Pier. North of Venetian Bay there are further grade 1 beaches at Clam Pass, Delmor-Wiggins, Barefoot Beach and Lovers Key State Parks, each with picnic/barbecue areas and full changing facilities (entry charges apply). Pelicans, fishing just off shore, are a major attraction, as are cormorants, egrets, sandpipers, sanderlings, seagulls, and terns on the beaches..

Sanibel Island, near Fort Myers (1 hour's drive away) has some of America's best shelling beaches. The Ding Darling Wildlife Bird Sanctuary on Sanibel Island is where many Northern bird species, including great white pelicans, spend their winters, and where egrets, anhingas, herons, roseate spoonbills and ibis can be seen close-up all year round.. The nearby Bowman's Beach has picnic and changing facilities and a beautiful shell-sand beach.

The Thousand Island Section of Everglades National Park (free entry + wildlife cruises) is a half-hour drive from our apartment, whilst the Shark Valley (cycle-path and trolly tour) and Florida City (Park HQ and overlooks) accesses to the Park are a 1 hour and 2 hour drive away, respectively. Everglades National Park is a unique world ecosystem of marsh grasslands, hardwood hammocks and mangrove islands, with alligators, salt-water crocodiles, dolphins, manatees, turtles, water snakes, and an amazing variety of bird life, all year round.

The Corkscrew Swamp/ Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary is only a short drive from the apartment and harbors a bald cypress swamp with alligators and both water and tree bird life (including herons, egrets, falcons, hawks and woodpeckers), as well as racoons.

Naples Town Pier allows free sea fishing by rod (bait shops available) whilst charters for deep-sea game fishing are available from the Crayton Cove Town Marina. There are also sail charters from the marina, both bare-boat and captained.

Shopping Details:

Naples City has five major shopping hubs located, respectively, at Third Street South and Fifth Avenue (downtown), The Coastland Center (on US41), Venetian Bay (on Gulfshore Boulevard North), and the Waterside Center (on Seagate Road). All are within a 5/10 minutes drive from our apartment. The Coastland Centre contains major department stores such as Sear's, Macy's, JC Penny's, and Dillard's. The other shopping complexes listed above comprise boutiques, specialist shops, jewelers, antique and fine art galleries, and good quality restaurants. Menus from a number of the restaurants are kept in our apartment.

Outlet store complexes are sited on the road from Naples to Marco Island (Premier Stores), beside Interstate 75N near Bonita Springs (Miramar Outlets), and on the road to Sanibel Island (Tanger Outlets), all within an hour's drive of our apartment.

The Pine Ridge Shopping Center, 400 yds from our apartment, contains supermarkets (Publix, Walmart and Wynn Dixie), clothing stores, wine-stores, video rentals, pharmacies, toy stores, restaurants, and home furnishing and home improvement stores. There is a Bank of America and a Chase Bank, both with an ATM, at Pine Ridge Shopping Center and other banks and ATMs at Fifth Avenue South and along US41.

About Mr & Mrs E Brown

We are a retired couple from Northern Ireland, now living in Scotland

Mr & Mrs E Brown purchased this condo in 2006

Why Mr & Mrs E Brown chose Florida South West

We visited Naples twice staying in hotel accommodation. We loved it so much that we wanted to have our own property there, so as to visit on a regular basis.. Our condo has a lovely spacious feel, a beautiful view over the Lakeside lake and a very pleasant lanai. It is comfortable and well equipped and we love staying there. The World Tennis Center provides a very pleasant environment with lakes, well maintained grounds and excellent vacation facilities, especially for tennis players.

What makes this condo unique

Two swimming pools, 16 tennis courts, pro-tennis tuition, a clubhouse bar/restaurant - all with organised tournaments and events for our tenants. All the shopping, beaching, fishing and sailing opportunities nearby. The wildlife spotting opportunities are very special.

Great Condo in Beautiful Area!!

  • 5 of 5

Great condo in beautiful area!

First of all this condo is located with the world tennis center which is a quiet clean friendly gated community in Naples. Tennis is the main interest at the club but there are many other activities to enjoy while your at the club. This property is located close to everything in Naples including shopping, grocery stores, restaurants, and just a short drive to the beach. The condo is a very nice clean 2 bedroom unit on the 2nd floor. We found the condo well equipped with everything you need to feel at home. We loved the nice view out to a lake in the backyard. The owners are friendly and great to work with. We had a great time staying at this condo in Naples.

Lovely apartment in a great tennis facility

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in this apartment with my husband and two teenage children over Christmas. The apartment is clean and bright, and very quiet - we never heard the neighbors. Everyone in the complex was very friendly. The facility has lots of very well-maintained clay courts. My kids are tournament level players and loved the tennis facilities. They took a lesson with the very nice pro, and also played a few days across the street at the Academie Sanchez-Casal. The heated club pool and hot tub were wonderful. We ate two nights at the grill when they had a barbeque and a seafood special. The food was good and it was so convenient to be able to eat there. The Browns were very easy to deal with, and communication was very quick. We hope to stay again!

Hell, luftig, ruhig

  • 5 of 5

Für uns war das Apartment eine richtige Oase: ruhig, hell, luftig. Wir konnten uns wunderbar erholen. Besonders genossen haben wir den schönen Blick aus dem Masterbedroom auf die Parkanlage mit See, Palmen und Papayabäumen. Die Einrichtung ist geschmackvoll und es mangelt an nichts. Der Kontakt mit den Vermietern war angenehm und unkompliziert. Tennisfreunde kommen in der Anlage natürlich voll auf Ihre Kosten, wenn auch hauptsächlich ältere Semester unterwegs sind. Unbedingt erforderlich ist ein Auto, da man doch etwas ab vom Schuss ist.

March Holiday 2011

  • 5 of 5

We had a relaxing time at this lovely apartment. It is beautifully furnished and the main bedroom is a good size with bathroom and walk in wardrobe. The kitchen has all the necessary equipment including washing machine and drier, always great to go home with little to no washing!!The gated community has lots ot tennis courts, of course, but the other facilities such as swimming pool and grounds are excellent. There is a bar and restaurant on site. The restaurant serves a limited menu but good food if you don't want to go out. A car is necessary, but there are restuarants and shops within walking distance. A lovely apartment, a good location, great holiday. Thankyou.
