This has to be the best spot for a couple’s get-a-way, located within the boundaries of a quiet Naples neighborhood and close to beaches and shopping. We walked to Vanderbilt beach and Wiggins State Park is just about 5 minutes by car. These are both great beaches! Look through the vacation planners provided as they cover just about the entire southwest Florida area.
And if you’re a nature lover don’t miss out on the J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge, and Corkscrew Swamp, and Alligators & Airboats Trafford Lake, Immokalee (much closer to the everglades and only one airboat company!).
For the “Beach Lovers” there are several great beaches we visited and they all have their own specialties. We found that further away was not always better, but two/three are worth the trip; Fort Myers Beach (also Bowditch Park located past FMB and past Times Square. Don’t be fooled by the public parking for Lynn Hall Memorial Park; although this is nice too, the best is yet to come.), and my favorite: Gasparilla Island State Park, Boca Grande; now this one’s a day trip but worth it and you must go to the very end of the park and to the left is additional parking and there’s a Light House and gift/visitor center. On your way back home enjoy a spectacular sunset dinner at South Beach Bar & Grill 777 Gulf Blvd. Boca Grande.
For the anglers I must recommend Captain Tony’s Fishing Adventures. We caught plenty of fish and tasty too!
The owner has made this unit a perfect all in one rental. You’ll be delighted with the amenities provided, as it is well stocked with more than the average daily items needed for a well thought out vacation.
