About Graeme Cooper

My Wife and I were lucky enough to be introduced to Southwest Florida many years ago and when we found ourselves in the fortunate position of looking for a home in the sun we choose Naples Florida.

Graeme Cooper purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Graeme Cooper chose Naples

We fell in love with the lakes and open spaces on Berkshire lakes. We also love the fact that it is a quiet residential area and we have great neighbors.

What makes this apartment unique

Our Condo is not the swankiest apartment in Naples but we try and make it one of the most comfortable and easiest to use.

A wonderful month October 2017.

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful month

This was a very nice condo. It had all of the needed supplies. Location was wonderful, just 10-15 minutes to the beaches of Naples. The communal pool was warm and never busy and a great way to unwind after a long walk on the soft sand beaches. The Berkshire lake's community left me feeling safe and secure. It was close to shopping and dining. As stated in the listing you get the feeling this is a true home from home, not just a holiday rental.The Bluetooth speaker and printer were most welcome. It was a great value for our month there, I would look to go back there again.

Great location, wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay while on vacation! We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Florida due to this unit. It had everything we needed to ensure a fun, relaxing time...close proximity to the beach (20 Minutes by car), easy access to the swimming pool and tennis courts, near-by restaurants, a beautiful environment, and a fully equipped unit.

The listing was accurate (location, layout, and amenities). The property was very well maintained. I received an immediate answer when I had a question. If we vacation in the area again, this is where we want to stay. We would highly recommend this property to friends and relatives.

We rate this property as 5 stars!

A Very Accurate And Fair Listing.

  • 5 of 5

This lovely two bed two bath Condo is nicely furnished with a lovely large patio overlooking the pleasant tropical gardens. We

really liked the size of this apartment and having two bathrooms (nice walk in shower too) and a big fully equipped kitchen. The complex, Berkshire Lake's is in an enviable position, it's a quiet residential area but only 10 minutes to to great restaurants, grocery stores and 15 minutes to the beach.

There is a publix supermarket and most of the other services you may need - all within an easy walk. And, you are only minutes drive to the I-75 Well under an hour to Fort Myers airport, and even Miami is only 90 minutes away - so lots of places to go. The parking is spacious and

undercover - easy. The Condo had internet and television (older style) with all the stations that you could need - there is even a printer in the living room The owner, Mr. Cooper, - made sure that we had everything we needed to arrive at the right destination at the right time, and that everything was in order for all of our months stay.

Anyone, families or couples, should enjoy a stay at this Home. The area has many offerings from tourist activities

- zoo, horse riding mountain biking etc and there are many great restaurants to recommend. Our favorite (not cheap) is Osteria Tulia 5th Ave. - as a place to chill with a drink, or fine dining the Ritz Carlton hotel in Vanderbilt Beach is exemplary - and their

beach club (a few miles to the west) is awesome - they have big luxury loungers on the edge of the sand - where you can be wined and dined in your own draped cabana and enjoy the sounds of the waves and views of the blue Golf, then come back to the privacy of this lovely condo on Newcastle on Berkshire lake county club one of the nicest in Naples.(But please note there is No Restaurant, Bar or Clubhouse) Go and enjoy yourselves!

Condo needs to be updated. Two pools and walking paths were very nice. Heavy traffic throughout the day.

This is the third time we have stayed at this Apartment on Berkshire Lake’s. We still can't find a reason to find a different place to go for a family vacation in Florida! We liked the updates to the condo and bought one of the chairs they had in the bedroom from World Market. Soon as you walk in it is like a home away from home! We had one issue which Debbie sorted out the same day. We always go to Lowdermilk Park which is 15 minutes’ drive and the beach towels, chairs and cool boxes were so welcome. There are tennis rackets supplied and we played at the clubhouse and found the courts to be first class. The Owners customer service is the best I’ve come across He’s in the U.K but called us at the condo to check all was O.K. The day before our Departure we had car trouble and had to stay two extra days would you believe the owner let us stay in the apartment at no charge. Can't wait to go again. You won't regret a stay at this condo or in Naples.

Frühjahr 2016

Wir haben 3 sehr schöne Wochen in dieser Wohnung verbracht. Sie befindet sich in einer absolut ruhigen Wohngegend. Die Fotos werden der Wohnung gerecht. Der Lanai ist größer als erwartet, es war sogar Platz für 2 Liegen. Wir haben das Frühstück in der Morgensonne sehr genossen. Hervorheben möchte ich auch die gute Ausstattung mit Strandstühlen und Sonnenschirmen mit Strandbohrer. Preis/Leistungsverhältnis 👍🏻 top
