About Anne Galpin

I am a retired teacher from the UK. I visited Florida for the winter sunshine for health reasons and fell in love with Naples. We were visiting year after year and so decided it made sense to buy our own place. This is our very special Florida home which we love to share with our guests.

Anne Galpin purchased this house in 2008

Why Anne Galpin chose Florida South West

We fell in love with the Mediterranean feel of the front and then when we walked in and saw the view we knew that this was the home we had been looking for for nearly two years. The view of the lake, the space in the house for all the family and the fact that the whole of the back virtually opens up to allow the outside and inside to meld into one. The pool area was also very important to us as I love to swim and the pool and the pool-deck are fantastic. We had also rented twice on Kings Lake and loved the area with its shopping plaza and homely feel. The walks around the large lake were also a draw to us. As well as having all of this the house is in a fantastic location which means within minutes of leaving the house you can be strolling along 5th Avenue or sitting on the beach.

What makes this house unique

The wonderful location, the peace and tranquillity and the wonderful views over the lake and less than 4 miles to Olde Naples, the pier and Naples beach. Really it does have the best of both worlds. The amazingly spacious pool-deck which gets the sun from sun-rise until late afternoon. The ability to walk to the local supermarket for supplies. The layout of the house also allows everyone to have their own space without losing the homely feel. It is also amazing to have such an array of wildlife right on the lake which you can watch from the comfort of the pool-deck. We regularly see Bald eagles and even have a Golden Eagle pair that hunt over the lake.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a great vacation! From the stunning view when you walk through the doors, the beautiful home meticulously equipped, to all the helpful and thorough info, to all the doors opening wide onto the lanai, even to the positioning of the house - sun in the lanai in the morning and some shade in the afternoon. It was all so perfect.

We will always have great memories of this time spent with our family. Thanks Anne and Peter.

A wonderful and relaxing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had thirteen nights in this wonderful villa, and wished we could have stayed longer. The booking process went extremely smoothly and Anne, the owner, responded quickly to my numerous questions, was very efficient, and provided detailed information on the villa and surrounding area before we left. We arrived late in the evening and as there are no keys to collect, were able to access the villa easily with the code provided. Anne had been aware we intended to use the Den as a fourth bedroom, and ensured that the sofa bed had been made up for our arrival. We found a couple of minor problems when we arose the following day, but one quick phone call to the local management company, and they were sorted the same day. What you see in the photos on the website is what you get. The villa is large and spacious, and clean, and there's all the equipment you might need available to you: plenty of towels, bedding, kitchen utensils, crockery and glassware, beach chairs & umbrella, DVD's, books, games, washer, drier, hairdryers, and more. The best thing of all however has to be the view from the pool area across the beautiful lake. The villa is in a quiet residential area, and it was so relaxing to sit and watch the sun rise and set across the lake, to see the different birds and wildlife. It was also a great place to watch the lightning storms! From the villa it's only a ten minute drive to Downtown Naples, and a couple of minutes further to the beach and pier. It's also easy to get to Marco Island (30 minutes) and the Everglades (~50-60 minutes). There's plenty to see and do in the surrounding area. Our favourite days included a Corrie Billy's Airboat ride (on the way to the Everglades), our boat trip with Naples Water Tours (which included swimming off Keewaydin Island, dolphin spotting and jetskiing), and kayaking with the Naples Kayak Company. Great places to eat included the Snook Inn on Marco Island, The Dock at Cayton Cove, and Roma Bistro on 5th Avenue. The ice cream from Kilwins on 5th is delicious!. The beaches in the area are amazing and we had great days at Lowdermilk , Barefoot and Tigertail (Marco Island) beaches. There's a Publix supermarket, Starbucks and Subway very close by and several shopping malls close to Downtown Naples. We were sad when the day of our departure came around, but if we ever go back to Naples, won't hesitate to see if this property is available for our stay. Our deposit was returned to us within a week of leaving.

We stayed at the Villa for 15 nights during the last 2 weeks of August, within our party were 4 adults and two teenage children.

The owner is attentive, responsive and does everything she can to make sure your stay is enjoyable. Book with confidence knowing that you will not be disappointed in any way.

The villa is located in a quiet, safe and convenient location. Naples has lots of restaurants to offer suiting all budgets, including take outs. We ate most nights and were never disappointed. We enjoyed meals on 5th Avenue and 3rd Street as well as the old favourites including Olive Garden, Texas Road House, Longhorns and the Cheese Cake Factory (The only time we could manage a pudding). The Rumba Cuba Cafe is close by and is well worth a visit - very tasty food with large portions. There is a Publix supermarket within 5 minutes drive and a Walmart approximately 10 minutes drive away.

There are also numerous enjoyable boat trips nearby with easy access to boat rides on the Everglades - check out Groupon for discounts. We used the Naples Princess and Jungle Ervs Airboats. The teenagers enjoyed feeding the giraffes at Naples Zoo, not something you can do every day!

A day trip to Sanibel Island was also enjoyable, with a scenic drive along the coast road. The Estero shopping outlet is approximately 40 minutes away and is full of heavily discounted major retail outlets/designer names. We visited this twice and ate at the Ford Garage where the burgers are great.

The villa is immaculate and very well cared for and the photos you see are what you get. The pool area was warm, clean and safe - other villas we have stayed previously have had a potential slip risk but not this one. There is everything you will need during your stay – a well stocked kitchen, plenty of towels and bedding and seemingly everything you need for outdoor pursuits and the beach. The barbecue was clean and available to use - we enjoyed entertaining extended family during our stay.

This villa is a 10 minute drive from an amazing beach and a wonderful Pier. The sea was clean and very warm, my daughters swam with dolphins a few metres away from them. The sight of a dolphin spinning in a breaking wave very close to the beach will live with us forever.

Owner's Response: Thank you Jon for your lovely review, and congratulations on being our 100th reviewers (no prizes I’m afraid!). When we first walked through the door we knew the search was over, and it’s fantastic that all our guests have been equally impressed. There are even more lovely comments in the guest books we keep in the villa. We should also mention that the next visitor we had after Jon and his family was Irma! The eye passed over Naples, but Villa Rilassante stood strong and secure, being made of concrete with a tile roof. We are currently a palm tree short of paradise, but the villa, the gardens and the views are as good as ever. We look forward to welcoming new and returning guests to experience a truly memorable vacation.

Wonderful relaxing villa

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent two wonderful weeks at this villa. As previous posters have said the owner, Anne, is great to deal with. Every email is answered quickly and informatively. The instructions for entering and using the villa are excellent. There is plenty of information about the villa and what to do on your days out provided within the villa. The view is just stunning when you walk in looking out across the swimming pool and lake. We quickly got into the routine of getting up having a swim, a leisurely breakfast, going out for a trip and coming back to an evening meal sat by the pool watching the local wildlife including rabbits, squirrels, birds and the local osprey trying to catch something to eat.

Everything you need is at the villa for a fantastic holiday with a well equipped kitchen and lovely bedrooms and bathrooms. There were only four of us but there could easily have been more. All the information and pictures shown on the webpages are accurate (not always the case on some sites). It is a lovely place to stay for a peaceful and relaxing holiday.

Beautiful, clean, relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home! Stayed here with my family after my daughters volleyball tournament and we were immediately comfortable. The home itself is beautiful, clean with more than enough room and it's already stocked with everything you need, only thing you need to buy is your food (Publix right around the corner)! The pool was wonderful, my daughters were in it everyday, rain or shine. The neighborhood is quiet, which is nice. Close to the beach, maybe 10 min drive and the house had an over abundance of beach chairs, toys (if you have smaller children) towels, even coolers! The homeowner, Anne really makes everything convienent and beyond comfortable. She is very accessible and responds to every email. This was honestly the best trip we've had in a long time, we're already planning next years trip back to Naples as we did exactly what Anne predicted we would- fell in love with the town and without a doubt will rent this house on our return trip! Thanks Anne for sharing this wonderful home!!

This beautiful villa is located in Kings Lake, a prestigious established community that is mature and tranquil and yet is one of the closest communities to downtown Naples and the beaches. It's location is one of the best in the community, on a quiet street with the widest lake views. It is a short drive from Olde Naples, with up-market shopping and restaurants, Naples waterfront with shopping, boating and dining, Naples Pier and the spectacular Gulf Coast beaches. The community has tennis courts and a jogging path for cycling, running or walking to the nearby shopping plaza. There is also a jogging path around the nearby larger lake. Naples is conveniently located to explore South West Florida's Gulf Coast and the Everglades. Naples boasts many cultural and artistic attractions as well as abundant wildlife. You can watch eagles, ospreys, herons, storks and more without leaving the pool. Bikes are provided so you can explore the local area. There are numerous golf courses nearby. You can fish from the lake or join the local fisherman down at Naples Pier or just stroll the Pier and watch out for dolphins, manatee and other remarkable wild-life. Relax and unwind on the spectacular pool-deck, shop in the many wonderful shops, admire the natural world in the Everglades and many natural parks, walk the lakes and the beaches, play golf or tennis .....whatever way you wish to spend your holiday this is the perfect place from which to start.
