"What we want when we are on holidays is to have no cares or worries. That's what this lovely condo in Winter Park meant for us. We like renting places where the owners actually use the property-it means that all different scenarios have been provided for:-beach and pool paraphernalia, bicycles, books, games, internet, cable and Netflix, as well as the basics.
The decor is so bright and airy that seeing it every morning when you wake up reminds you that you are on holiday! Put that together with glorious weather and tropical landscaping in a quiet setting, it is so serene.
This property was such a good fit for us-we could bicycle on pathways and quiet streets, we could walk through neighbourhoods and get a 'feel' for Naples, we could even walk to the grocery store (what a treat) and we could walk to Bealls-one of my favourite places to shop, although you will buy so much, you won't be able to carry it home!! (We did have access to a car but why drive when you can walk). The huge pool was always so clean and warm-just like pools you encounter in resorts in the Caribbean. You could relax floating on one of the pool noodles provided by Rob & Lori. I took advantage of the yoga and water aerobic classes provided. We even went to Bingo and have NEVER played bingo before but it was a lot of fun-everyone was so helpful and friendly. Visiting the beach was another highlight (parking pass provided-yes!.) Watching the sunset, collecting shells(there is something so calming about this activity), swimming, walking on the pier, seeing dolphins in the water all contributed to our relaxing holiday. We took advantage of Happy Hour deals in Downtown Naples (where all the parking is free-don't you wish that could be everywhere?) and eating alfresco at restaurants-again finding specials. (We loved the outside heaters in case of cool weather and thought how wonderful they would be on our deck at home in Orono, ON, Canada)
We would definitely return to this rental and would recommend it to everyone, including families. The only thing that prevents us from spending more time here is our young grandchildren back home. We miss them too much!
Thanks Rob & Lori"
