Wow what a holiday!
We were impressed with your beautiful villa. One week is just not enough.
Thank you for the opportunity to get acquainted with the Englewood and Rotonda areas.
We haven't had enough and will definitely be back for more.
Our fav beach was Stump Pass Beach. Great for watching and photographing osprey and herons with the occasional dolphin swimming by.
Until next time!

We had a great time swimming and sunbathing at the local beaches. We found around 300 sharks teeth.
Love the house, the pool was very enjoyable and we cooked a lot on the grill.
Can't wait to come back.

We had a fabulous stay in Dragonflies, you have a beautiful home there and we felt very spoiled.
We enjoyed the luxurious surroundings and appreciated the care that you have obviously put into the villa. The quality of all the linens and the nice touches like the cleansing pads in the bathrooms were very much appreciated! I can't think of anything you need to add - we found everything we needed and it was a joy to be in a fully equipped kitchen. The villa is so comfortable that no one was in a hurry to leave - we all enjoyed the pool.
I feel that we had a real holiday, relaxing mornings with lazy breakfasts on the lanai and leisurely exploring in the afternoon. The beaches we explored are beautiful, and the breeze from the Gulf made them so comfortable!
We enjoyed Englewood, loved Venice and Boca Grande. We loved the South Beach Grill. Had a perfect evening there - a couple of drinks on the porch, while the kids played in the sand. We hadto move to the next level in to eat as there was a thunderstorm, but that had finished by the time we finished eating so we had a nice long walk on the beach to walk off the meal. I had my first ever taste of key lime pie - what a perfect location.
I hope we will be able to return someday soon.
Thanks again for all your help, and for the use of your lovely home. How can you ever bear to leave for rainy old England?

Once again Dragonflies lived up to and beyond our expectations. The villa was immaculate when we walked in and the sun was shining. What more could two whey faced Brits want? A fabulous time in hospitable surroundings.
The Pig'n Whistle is a great watering hole but only open for dinner though! If you, or someone you know loves bling and you are in the Naples area you can't go wrong with The Best of Everything on Tamiami Trail N, (behind Big Mels or Als Diner) We saw the same pieces on St Armands Circle at 4x the price!
We hope that you enjoy your stay and walk the beautiful beaches as we did.

What can we say that has not already been said! WOW!
We arrived in the middle of the night tired, hungry & travel weary to find the welcoming lights of Dragonflies.
The last month has been just so exhilarating, entertaining and relaxing with family. Taking in the so many experiences of the area - Golf, Ball games, Beaches, Shopping, Restaurants, meeting new people and coming across friends from home.
Most of all the last week of our holidays enjoying Dragonflies and coming down from a very busy time at home.
Thank you so much for making Dragonflies available to us.
