Connie K said..
We have been going to southern Florida every winter since 2002. This was without a doubt the loveliest home we have ever rented and very clean and well maintained. Everything worked. The cathedral ceiling gave a feeling of spaciousness. The listing was very accurate regarding the layout and amenities. We didn't know what west of 41 meant until we arrived! This was the place to be - one mile from beautiful beaches and close to restaurants and shopping ranging from modest to waterfront luxury. We loved the screened in hot tub and heated pool and our guests enjoyed the privacy of the upstairs bedrooms and bath. The large master suite is on the first floor and is incredible for the number of walk in closets. Unlike other properties, the owner has ample cleaning supplies in all bathrooms, kitchen and the laundry room to encourage you to keep the property as spotless as you found it. She was always available to us and cheerfully answered any questions we had (where could we take our dog for a walk or where to get nails or hair done) and took prompt care of any minor issues that came up. The owner recommended nearby attractions, restaurants and shopping, including the fabulous Best of Everything, where silver jewelry can be purchased very inexpensively. We always cross our fingers when booking online but this was totally unnecessary for this property. We can highly recommend it without reservation.

My family and I stayed at this villa from Dec 22-30, 2015. We had found it 'by chance' on the internet and we were absolutely delighted with it. Our group included 2 grandparents, 2 parents, and 2 children. This home was perfect for all! The bedrooms are spacious and have very comfortable beds. There are two common sitting areas and a large dining room table that became a regular 'gathering spot' for us at the end of our busy days. Every night we set out activities for the kids to discover when they woke up. They enjoyed playing quietly while the rest of us took a more leisurely approach to mornings. One of the reasons we choose this villa was it's proximity to many places of interest for children. Our kids LOVED the Naples Zoo, children's museum, and various near-by beaches. But their all-time favourite was the great pool right at the villa. They spent hours every day playing in the pool. The adults meanwhile either joined them in the water or lounged on the spacious deck. This villa is very modern and tastefully decorated. It is impeccably clean and has a peaceful and relaxing tone in the decor. Our group loves to walk, and we enjoyed being within walking distance to a Publix store, a wide variety of shopping, and great restaurants. The owner also provided a pass for use of a beautiful private beach. We could have walked there, however we always had a lot of 'beach stuff' to bring along, so typically drove. [The home came with a lot of beach chairs and toys.] The neighborhood around the villa is a very safe, upscale type of neighbourhood that was a pleasure to call 'home' for a week. Because we were going to be away from home on Christmas Day, we wanted to make Christmas special for the kids. The owner of the villa provided a Christmas tree that we were free to set up and decorate to add a festive touch. In fact, throughout the whole selection and rental process, the owner of this villa was so helpful. She provided tons of ideas of things to do while in Naples. Our experience was enriched by her generous thoughtfulness. I highly recommend this villa for your next family holiday! You will find the owner wonderful to deal with, and the property a place to make life-long memories.
Great location with shopping and our favorite restaurants close by. Nice having the pool and beach parking pass. Plenty of room for a nice comfortable stay.
Very clean - plenty of room for our group. Location is excellent for all the Naples action and beach. Plenty of towels, bikes were a great addition, as well as beach chairs.
The villa is spacious, clean, and comfortable! The location is just a short drive from the Gulf, shopping, and downtown. Michele was very easy to communicate with and provided an exceptional guide of things to do and places to go in Naples. I would recommend this rental.
Dear Michele; We had a great time in your beautiful home. Nice private beach, ate breakfast at the Cove coffee shop, farmers market on Saturday, dinner at Yabba's and the Turtle Club. We shopped the streets of 5th and Tin City and partied hardy for our birthdays at Hob Nob and Blu Martini. On plane now to head North. Thank you for making our 60th birthday special! Cheryl
Alan W said..
The listing does not do this excellent property justice. Plenty of room, well equipped, very comfortable and well-maintained and clean. The owner could not have been more helpful and welcoming. We had a great time in Naples and recommend this property to anyone. If we return to Naples this will be our first choice.
Christopher C said..
A beautiful property well situated for all amenities. There were a number of good restaurants locally and the beaches were fantastic. The house was very clean with an ample supply of towels and toiletries together with anything we needed for our vacation. There were numerous items in the garage for trips to the beach. Our family are hoping that we will be able to return in the future. Chris Cox, Hartley Kent UK
Jan and Stu said..
Hi Michele, we had a great stay at your villa in Naples, it is extremely clean, very well equipped and maintained. Our grandsons loved the pool. The house is in a quiet cul-de-sac but within easy walking distance to amenities such as the local Publix and Walgreens and very child friendly D'Amicos restaurant, who provided a pizza exactly to our grandsons's specifications! The villa is situated close to the beach and local area and the pass to Park Shore beach was a lovely bonus as was the use of the bikes. Your emails and details were comprehensive and very helpful. Thanks again Jan and Stu Dickerson
Hi Michele, this is Connie. We checked out of your Naples villa this morning and had the best time! Huge amount of space, convenient, and loved all the extras like the pool and even beach chairs. We hated to leave but plan to return! Thank you again, it was perfect!
Carrie N said..
Right from the start, I was impressed with how responsive Michele was. We inquired about several properties in Naples at the same time and Michele got back to us right away. When we had any questions or concerns during our stay, she responded very quickly to texts. Her property is great if you're traveling with small children. She currently has a pack and play and a little portable high chair which made things so easy for us, less to pack and drag to Florida! The property was spacious and clean. There are 3 bedrooms, but if you are traveling with little ones who are still in a crib, you could easy put the crib in a spacious closet off the master, or possibly the laundry room - meaning you wouldn't NEED to use a bedroom on the little one if you didn't want to. It was great having the pool too. The location is wonderful, a short 10 min drive to 5th Avenue, so easy to get on the Tamiami, lots of services nearby. We had a great stay!
Hi there we got in just fine and the Villa is beautiful! Thank you again. Monique
Hi Michele, just a quick note to let you know we have arrived and your property is absolutely fantastic, as are its surroundings. We had a blast on the beach today. Best regards, Jürgen
Hi Michele! Just wanted to let you know we LOVE this place! So happy we chose this house. Best Regards Marianne and family:-)
This house has everything you need and so much more! We stayed for 3 weeks here, and would highly recommend this place for anybody! It has all the Stuff you need for a good vacation i.e everything you need for the beach, towels to cower a small army, everything is clean and in a really good condition. Also i highly recommend Michele. Such a positive, professional woman answering all my e-mails in a heartbeat! And a great neighbourhood! Going to naples? Stay here!
Diane D said..
Shady lane, cool interior, large bedrooms, bright and comfortable living room, bicycles, and the double garage. The pool and the beach pass are a welcome bonus. All that in the beautiful Parkshore area. Our stay was memorable thanks to Michele who is the perfect owner. Jacques & Diane
My friends and I had a wonderful stay at your villa in Naples. The accommodations were excellent. The location was fabulous. We had a local guy in a friend of ours who lives in Naples so we saw a great deal. As many times as I've been in Florida I have never been to Naples so it was a wonderful treat. We took great care of your Villa so I assume it was found to be in good shape. . It was a pleasure doing business with you and it is possible that we will return next year and we will definitely stay at your Villa again. Also could you send me some information on your Fort Myers Beach condo as well? Thank you
Lisa and Lauren said..
Dear Michele; Thank you so much! We had a relaxing, wonderful time. Your house is just beautiful and we really appreciate and noticed all of the extra effort you made to make everything perfect! Hopefully we will be back again soon and will recommend your home to our family and friends. Wishing you all the best. Lisa and Lauren
Hi Michele, Many thanks and thank you for allowing us to stay once again in your beautiful home! Had a fantastic holiday with much improved weather this year and didn't find the July heat to be a problem as we didn't visit disney this year. Enjoyed a lot of time on beach and even had a manatee swim between us one day on park shore beach couldn't believe our eyes! Had a great day in miami just as we had expected very busy and beaches at south beach not so good as Naples but great experience think that north beach probably a lot quieter. Arrived home safely yesterday to british summertime,rain and 64 f! just catching up as 5 hrs ahead here. Anyway will definitely be back as we love naples so hopefully be able to stay again next time! Hope we left everyone in order. Take care Beverley
Hi Michele Thank you for the hospitality. We are enjoying our traditional ihop breakfast before driving north to catch our flight home. We left your home following all instructions - all bed linens in the dryer and towels in the wash etc. Your cleaners arrived as we were leaving - we left the rooms very tidy so not much to do. Hope to be able to stay at your villa again. Colleen
I'd highly recommend this place. The property is as described, it is exactly as mentioned and pictured. We got what we wanted and them some. There are so many family fun things to do while staying here. 1.) Such as relaxation at the many beaches within a 5 minute drive. 2.) Staying at the property and relaxing 3.) Naples zoo 4.) Water parks 5.) Renting a chartered boat ride for an elegant sunset cruise through Naples with "Day Star Charters" The owner was very helpful and answered any questions I had in timely fashion. Everything down to her "things to do in Naples" list were helpful.
Michael A said..
Villa was excellent! Renting was easy, safe, and secure. Michele was great to rent from and easily reachable for any questions. Villa was in a great location. Very spacious and beautiful. If you are looking for a place to rent in Naples, you want to rent the villa.
Where is the five and a half star button? We loved everything about the villa. The location is just perfect. Everything is nearby, but the villa itself is on a quiet side street. The beach is a short bike ride away. Oh, and do try the private beach, which is about 4-5 min car ride away. It is so nice! We also liked the private swimming pool and hot tub. The villa is super clean, and spacious. Take my advice, and book this rental if you going to Naples any time.
Peter and Margaret said..
Hi Michele, I just got ready to answer your e-mail and tell you that you can send the deposit check refund when you get back to Naples. Too late, well thank you. There really was no hurry. The picture you sent is breathtaking. Are you a professional photographer on the side? I really hope you have a wonderful time. I have a feeling that you are a hard worker. We plan to come back to your villa. You have lots of sold out dates. I am not surprised you take very good care of your guests and make them feel welcome. We will try to squeeze in when we have the time. Many regards from both of us. Peter
Leslie R said..
The villa exceeded our expectations! The owner was extremely accessible - from the moment my Home Away reservation was accepted until after the keys had been dropped in the mail. I was a bit nervous about renting sight unseen but after reading other reviews and seeing the photos online I took a chance. And, after I received the first email from the owner, I was completely at ease! The villa was perfect for four adults. Very clean, beautiful master suite with shower and soaking tub, all new appliances, new wood floors, the pool and hot tub were clean and well-maintained and had plenty of privacy, and the kitchen was fully equipped. It was conveniently located around the corner from the grocery store. We loved having a pass to the private access beach which was within a short distance as was the city beach. There were plenty of bikes in the very large garage and lots of coolers and toys for the beach. The owner also shared a lot of tourist information about restaurants, activities, and places for sight-seeing. I would definitely recommend this property to all my friends and look forward to renting again!
Description of property and pictures were very accurate. My family and I enjoyed our stay at your villa immensely - the location was perfect - literally three minutes to the beach. I loved being close to the grocery store and lots of restaurants. The villa was clean and spacious - everything that we could have asked for. We spent lots of time in the pool and loved having a fully stocked kitchen - you were missing nothing. I would recommend this property to everyone without hesitation. Thank you so much for letting us stay!
Hey Michele, We enjoyed our time in the villa. It was very nice and the location was ideal. We're glad that you found it in good condition - we tried to be very neat and keep things clean. We would like to return to the villa again. If, by chance, February became available, we would like it for that month. If not, we would like to rent it again for January. Once you know which month we will be renting, please let us know. Some kind of written confirmation would be great. Thank you for all your help. Your suggestions for restaurants and activities were very good. Back here in Illinois, we are expecting a low of -13 degrees tonight, but we have our memories to keep us warm! Judy
Judy M said..
Below is an email from a long term repeat January renter who had to cancel this year due to her husbands unexpected spine surgery. The renter did not purchase trip insurance, however I was able to re-rent the month of January and as promised in my rental agreement, upon re-renting the same dates, I am happy to provide a deposit refund. I was able to do so and below is the email I received back in response. Dear Michele, Thank you so much for the promised deposit refund! We really did not expect it and consider it a reflection of your integrity and honesty. We find it very refreshing! Roger is doing well. He is frustrated by his physical limitations, but I keep reminding him of how improved he is already from the time prior to the surgeries. Thank you very much for your prayers and well wishes. Judy
We had a lovely visit over the holidays. The house is just as it is pictured. Everything you need for the beach is there for you as well as bikes to get you easily to and from. Michelle was wonderful to work with.
Michele, Thanks so much. We had a great time, and the house was perfect. We will definitely look you up again next year when we plan to return to Naples. Take care. Gary
We loved this house! It was perfectly located for everything. Walking distance to upscale Waterside shops and restaurants, minutes to the beach, playground, supermarket etc. we usually stay at hotels in Naples but since having our son we opted for a vacation home to give us more space. We will definitely be returning! We recommend trying the restaurant Blueberries for breakfast and driving to Gordon Drive to see the amazing huge houses on the beach where we spotted several dolphins and found amazing shells while being nosey!
The house is lovely and in a great location. There is a Publix and other convenience stores and restaurants just within a ten minute walk. There are public tennis courts less than 5 minutes from property and the beaches are within a 5 minutes drive. There is also a shopping mall within walking distance. Michele was very helpful and always happy to please. The bikes are great. We cycled to the beach on several occasions and it was also nice to use the beach pass to park at Park Shore beach. We really enjoyed the Clam Pass Beach as it was nice to take the ride in the buggy and also was nice to have lunch in the beach bar. One of our favourite places to eat was the Cheesecake Factory which is just a few minutes drive as well as Seasons 52. Overall we would recommend this Vila to anyone. Naples is such a fantastic place that we just can't wait to go back. Thank you Michele for being such a great host. The Wilson family from Scotland
Michelle A said..
I am late in submitting this review (so sorry) however my delinquency is not for lack of the wonderful memories of our week long stay in this lovely vacation home. We have visited Naples during the past 5 years and are most pleased with the location of this home. The location is located in what is called the Park Shore section of Naples which is known for one of the most lovely private beaches in the area. We picked this location primarily for the fact that the owner included her private beach membership with the rental. We were so grateful for the opportunity to finally be able to enjoy the private beach. The public beaches in the area are of course wonderful as well, and we still enjoyed a few days over at Clam Pass Park, however the exclusiveness of the private Park Shore beach can't be beat in our opinion. The private beach is located direction across the street from Venetian Village where we enjoyed lunch at M's as well as ice cream at Ben and Jerry's. Once our tummy's were full we walked back to the beach, life was good! The house itself was also a nice find as it was clean, large and comfortable in every way. We especially enjoyed the swimming pool. The house was also nicely furnished and we could not want for anything more during our stay. The owner Michelle was professional and always quick to answer our questions and emails. In fact, I am ready to book again for this summer! On a side note, for those unfamiliar with the area, I highly recommend the little Greek restaurant right around the corner called Palagos. I have never tried Greek food prior to this visit, but I am sold... best salmon ever!
The Walsh family said..
Michele; Thank you SO much we've really enjoyed our stay in your beautiful Naples villa and hope to be back again one day!! We've done all of the washing of the beach towels as we went along so hopefully not too much laundry. Many thanks, The Walsh Family.
My family and I really enjoyed our stay in Michelle's villa. It is very clean, nicely decorated, and very well-stocked with all the necessities. It was a total of (6) adults and we all felt very comfortable in the space. The villa is centrally located with a grocery store within walking distance and various restaurants and shops within a short drive (Skillets for breakfast is a must - best bacon I've ever had). The neighborhood is very nice and made for some pleasant evening strolls/bike rides (the only thing that got to us was the unbearable heat). The private beach is lovely, but I enjoyed Clam Pass most because we were able to rent comfortable beach loungers and umbrellas and eat/drink at the outdoor restaurant. All in all, I highly recomend staying here, and we'd gladly return. And by the way, Michelle is absolutely wonderful to work with.
Hi Michele Arrived home yesterday. Yes thank you despite the rain we had a great stay in Naples as ever have had rain over the years that we have visited but not constant cloud cover. We have left a brand new beach umbrella hopefully someone else will get to use it or maybe us when we return again. We loved the villa it had all of the home comforts and in a great location as expected and had everything that we needed to make our stay enjoyable . We didn't get to use the pool as much as we would have hoped but did go in the hot tub a couple of times. We also used the bikes and really appreciated the beach pass which saved having to travel to a public beach and we did have several walks on the gulf shore. We did have a trip to Sanibel as we hadn't visited for several years and really enjoyed that also. I have definitely made the most of the local shopping this year! Thank you for all of the tips and your prompt response to my numerous e mails and thanks for returning the security deposit so promptly. Hopefully your villa will be available the next time we visit Many thanks Beverley
There is always a little trepidation when arriving at your vacation property..will it be as expected or will it disappoint. Michele's house was everything we hoped for and more. Spacious,clean and beautifully maintained. In a quiet residential area this house is just a few minutes from shops, restaurants and beaches. By car Less than 2 mins to the supermarket and less than 5 to the beach). It was great that both the beach and supermarket were within walking distance (although possibly the beach a bit far for less active visitors) . Michele answered all my questions and was able to assist with the possible need for wheelchair rental. I would not hesitate to recommend this property and have already considered returning next year.
We had found this vacation home on line and were directly pleased with all the positive reviews as well as the overall concept of the house and location. We then also had a very open and friendly communication with Michele who is the owner and not only rented her villa to us but also provided us upfront with a lot of useful information of the area. We have been there 3 weeks with 4 adults and 2 kids (3 & 1 year old) and everything worked out just great. Perfect for us Europeans we could even walk to the next Publix supermarket and with a short ride with the bikes we got to the beaches. The private beach access also turned out to be one of our favorites. Overall can just state that the villa itself was great -clean, modern with a lot of space for everyone and perfectly located within Naples which is just wonderful and we are already planning to come back.
Paul and Toni said..
We rented this villa in Park Shore for the month of March. The villa perfectly matched its description and the pictures posted on line with respect to cleanliness, decor and location. We were very comfortable. The location is exceptional. A short walk to the shops a Waterside; the Philharmonic; the Art Gallery and the local Publix grocery store. And a short drive to Mercado, Fresh Market, Costco, etc. We were pleased to entertain our Naples friends in this vacation property. We would highly recommend it to friends and relatives, but in any event, we have rented it again for six weeks in March and April 2014
Betty Lynn said..
Hello Michèle: We can’t believe our holiday is already over! Words cannot describe the wonderful time we’ve had. Your villa was a dream come true. Absolutely nothing was missing, really unbelievable; the best place we’ve stayed so far. The beach was lovely, always ample parking. The beach chairs and umbrellas were most useful. Pierre my husband, felt a bit uneasy when we arrived, with leaving the spare BBQ gas cylinder inside the garage, so he put it outside beside the pool accessory storage bin on the lanai. It is still there. Therefore, we shall be leaving tomorrow morning around 9:00 am so we can mail your keys. We shall be taking our time getting back to Canada so we want you to receive your keys as soon as possible. Again Michèle, thank you for your continued input and wonderful suggestions. You really are a class act. Best regards to you, Betty-Lynn and Pierre
David and Diana said..
Dear Michele; We had a wonderful time at your villa. Everything was just as you promised. We especially enjoyed the private parking at the beach and going for bike rides. We are already planning a return visit. We trust that you are well and enjoyed the Holidays. Please find enclosed the key to the villa. We will be in touch. God Bless you! Sincerely, David and Diana
David and Julie said..
Hi Michele Just a quick email to tell you that we both had a fantastic time at your lovely Naples villa. We really enjoyed the beach pass as we spent several days relaxing on the wonderful Naples beach. The bikes were also a great asset although we both found the trike quite difficult to steer!! We visited the post office and have returned the key as requested by certified mail the reference number on the side of the receipt we have is XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX (hopefully we have this right!!) we sent them to the Naples address as per your written instructions. We have just about got over our jet lag and returned to a bright but chilly (42 degrees top temperature) London and I am already planning our next trip to Naples probably about the same time next year all being well so don't be surprised to see an email from us with availability request. So once again thanks very much for the way the whole process has been handled all very easy and painless a real pleasure. All the very best have a great Christmas in lovely Naples. Dave and Julie

Hi Michele! I have tried to sign up so that I can give our review but it doesn't seem to work. This is what I wrote and I hope you can use it anyway. We had a wonderful stay in this perfect house. It was me, my husband,our teenage son ,his girlfriend and another couple. We felt just as home and the house was very clean and nicely furnished. All three bathrooms were in perfect condition. I can't think of one thing that we missed in the house. A lot of towels and beach chairs and also good bikes that we took to the beach. We liked the Clam pass beach the best since there was a nice beach restaurant at this location. Another thing that we really liked was that it was walking distance to four nice restaurants. That was nice because we drove around so much during the days that it felt nice not to have to drive to a restaurant. Michele was also very nice to talk to and we could tell that she wanted to do everything to make our vacation as nice as possible. We can strongly recommend this perfect villa an hope to come back some day.

My wife and I recently spent (2) wonderful weeks at this villa. The villa is well equipped and extremely comfortable in all respects. It would be ideal for a couple as well as a large family. The rooms are spacious and well furnished. We especially liked the den, ideal for reading, TV or cocktails. We also spent quite a bit of time in and at the pool. Over the years we have stayed in homes and hotels in different parts of Naples. The Park Shore area where the villa is located is an especially nice and convenient area. You are close to all types of restaurants and shops in various price categories. And it’s all within walking distance, and that includes the beach. The owner, Michele told us we would not need a rental car. We decided to get one anyhow but we certainly could have easily done without. A final comment about the owner is important. She is extremely responsive and was very fast in getting back to us on our little requests and a few questions about the area. Definitely this was a winner.
Everything about this trip was great! Booking was smooth, the owner was friendly, flexible and helpful. The keys arrived in a timely manner and she sent a bunch of information about things to do and nearby suggestions. Knowing that we had our dogs, she also sent several brochures on dog beaches and dog-friendly restaurants. Once we got to the villa, we immediately felt at home. The place is very nice, clean and user-friendly. We had absolutely no problems with the property. All appliances worked and we were happy to have the grill. We made good use of the hot tub and pool as well. The areas nearby are just stunning. There was so much to do in the small town and it really showcases Florida for the beautiful state we are. A must-do for those who are not Florida residents - rent a kayak and hit the waters near Lover's Key. There are many places to launch from and a series of marked trails. There is no better way to get an up close encounter with Florida bottle-nosed dolphins and manatees. We saw many each time we went out! Most the the areas here are gator free, but, if you want to see gators via kayak, you can find trails further away. For those who are bringing their dogs with them on vacation, this is a great way to incorporate them into your trip. My dogs loved navigating the waters. And, of course, the Bonita Springs dog beach is a must!! We spent most of our trip there and loved it!! During high tide, there is very little sandy beach left, luckily that was the day we brought our kayaks and made use of the waters. I would definitely recommend this villa!!
This house was perfect for our family ( 2 adults and two 18 and 19 years old) , its big and very nicely decorated , we felt like home in just few hours. Everything you need is in the house just as promised, very clean and well maintained in every way. About the standard of the neighborhood you have the Waldorf Astoria hotel just down the road , the wonderful Village and the fabulous Waterside Shops just in a few min walking distance, that should tell a lot about the high class standard of the area. The private beach at Park Shore is the best beach we have been to ( we do travel a lot) . Naples Pier is few min away. We took a day trip to Miami , we visited Goodland and Marko Island. There is plenty to do if you want, but in the 3 weeks we were there we liked it best at the house/beach and the area around. As for restaurants and food you have everything in walking distance, like the awesome Naples Famous Pizza/Portofino which we visited several times, the Publix market is just around the corner with everything you need. Hairdresser, cleaners , you name it you got it all there. If you want go to other shopping you got it all in few min by car , like the Coastland mall and of course the Miramar outlets. In total I recommend this property for everyone no matter age , you will always find something to do or you can just do nothing but relax and enjoy the house , beach and the area. As for the owner Michele, she was wonderful from day one, we got all the information and help we could ask for. Thanks so much Michele, this was our best vacation so far. Hope to come back another time. All the best Dagbjort and family
We had an amazing time at this villa which was all we expected and more ! The owner Michele is great and very helpful (she provided us with all the details for nearby beaches , activities for the kids, and shopping areas) . The villa was great , well-maintained, clean and big enough for all of us (we were 4 adults and 2 children). We also appreciated having a private pool and being at a 5 min drive from the beaches (one private and the clam pass beach). Naples in itself is a beautiful city and a great place for families, everything is a short drive away (ex.: the zoo, the Miromar outlets, the doggie beach, the Pier, mini-putt ). Naples' Pier is great and before 11 am (on certain days), you'll find volunteers teaching kids how to fish for free. The walk through the mangrove at the clam pass beach is also a great sight. I strongly recommended this villa .
The villa was ideal for our family of six, spacious, beautifully kept and equipped with every element of comfort and amenities, everything like new, properly supplied and in perfect working condition. The location was the best possible, surrounded by gorgeous landscaping, with easy and friendly neighbours, very quiet and safe, but within walking distance to great shopping, supermarkets, restaurants, beaches and other attractions. The host was always professional and efficient but also very gracious and caring from the first contact, several months before our vacation, until the refund of the deposit money immediately after we left the villa. She provided us with easy and clear instructions for the rental process and everything occurred, even to the smallest detail, as planned and exactly as promised. Thanks Michele, also for the useful information and suggestions for travel and entertainment in the area. We will surely be back soon.
Dear Michelle We had an absolutely fantastic time. The house was so perfect in every way and everything we could possibly need was there. I will most definitely keep you in mind the next time we arrive! I hope everything was in order when we left - Packing for three kids and then driving them to Miami airport was hard work but worth it. best wishes Caroline On 16 Apr 2012

We have been coming to Naples for 8 years and have usually spent our time in downtown Olde Naples; but the location of this villa is WONDERFUL and we found so many new and exciting places to enjoy. Naples has so much more to offer than just Third Street or Fifth Ave. We had visited Venetian Village before but staying at this Villa and being only a bike ride away, we went every Saturday afternoon to enjoy the wonderful live music. We also discovered great new places to eat and enjoy the water views. The most enjoyable morning activity was the short bike ride to the private gated beach parking area for Park Shore residents and walk the 2 mile paved coastal walkway - absolutely beautiful! That amenity for staying at this location was truly a highlight. There is also a public beach access that is only a short 15 min. walk from the villa and you can also walk the boardwalk to the beach at Clam Pass. We also enjoyed riding our bikes in the Pelican Bay area to reach Vanderbilt Beach - you never run out of interesting places to explore in this area. This location also afforded you to be able to walk to church, the grocery store, Waterside shops (beautiful outdoor shopping and restaurants) AND walk to the Island Pub where we did more dancing in one month than we have in the last 30 years! So-ooo much fun and also discovered some wonderful new nearby restaurants (i.e., USS Nemo for the best Sea Bass I have ever had!) I am making myself so sad remembering all the wonderful things we did . . . better move on to describing the Villa before I start crying! The master bedroom suite was amazing . . with 3 huge closets, one could have been used as a sleeping area! My husband and I had to relinquish it to my 85 yr. old mother though because she can no longer climb stairs easily. We were not disappointed though because the king size bed upstairs was even more comfortable - having a memory foam mattress - ended up buying one when we returned home. The bathroom that is shared by the two bedrooms upstairs is more than adequate, having 2 sinks. The pool area is great and we really appreciated that there was a gas grill. Never did use the hot tub - the weather was hot enough! The Villa has a wonderful "wow" factor, exceptionally clean and easy to maintain. Michelle, the owner, is very friendly & accommodating. . quick to make sure your vacation is everything you hoped for - it certainly was for us! Thanks Michelle, we will keep in touch!
Hi Michele, Well, that has to be the fastest February on record. We were so fortunate with the great weather. We had lots of nice beach hours and managed to do several other things and see several friends, as well. (We enjoyed the Oscar show on Sunday! The house is conveniently located, comfortable and quiet. We had a really nice vacation. We do plan to contact you later this summer once we begin to plan next years vacation! Take care, Gretchen

Our family had a wonderful experience renting this beautiful villa for a month-long vacation. The owner is a dream to work with - attentive to your every need and providing so many extras such as bikes (take advantage of these!)beach passes, plentiful beach towels, chairs & toys. She even provided many suggestions for entertainment and nearby restaurants. And it was fantastic to step out the door to your private lanai with heated pool & hot tub. The Parkshore neighborhood is perfect - beautiful homes with flowering yards, canals, and massive banyan trees, and so convenient to great shopping & some of the best restaurants in Naples. The villa was just as pictured - spacious rooms, beautifully decorated and the master bedroom suite was a definite wow! You won't be disappointed! What a wonderful experience from beginning to end. The only downside...having to leave!
Hi Michele, We are having a great time and really enjoying you rental place. The location is perfect for getting around and getting over to see my grandfather. I just wanted to let you that we used a wine opener and realized the one handle was missing. Other than that - everything is great. Thanks, Geoff
Hi Michele, Just wondered if there was any chance we could check out a little later on Thursday. Usually we would head to the mall on the last day for a few hours to keep cool and kill a few hours, but as its thanksgiving everything is closed, so entertaining the girls is suddenly looking a little daunting. I've been mean into ask all week, but did not want to face the reality of going home. Love the house, and have fallen in love with Naples! Thanks, Lisa
We were in the Naples, FL area for a convention at the Naples Grande Hotel. We discovered this gem of a place on line and were very pleased to stay at a spacious private property located just down the street and around the corner from the Naples Grande. The property itself was super clean, larger then expected, and was perfect for our group of 4. We very much enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub after long meeting days at the hotel and found the location to be very convenient. Michelle was easy to do business with and very accomondating with our last minute reservation. We highly recommend this rental property and plan to return during next years convention.

Hi Michele, We all made it back safely after a great vacation. We thoroughly enjoyed your home, it was exactly what we were looking for! We used the pool and lanai quite a bit , our daughter went to the beach most days. The bikes were great. We tried most of the restaurants nearby, very convenient. Celebrated mom’s 90th birthday at Carrabba’s . Will go to the post office tomorrow and send the key, registered mail. Thank you for everything! We plan to return next year! John and Marilyn
I chose this property for our family vacation as we have stayed in this section of Naples ( Park Shore ) in the past and knew the location would be perfect for our families needs. The owner has thought of absolutely everything from an abundance of beach towels, pool toys, beach chairs, propane outdoor grill, bikes to use, to a kitchen full of all the items needed to cook at least one meal each day for the family. The villa itself was really nicely layed out with the master bedroom and a giant (WOW) master bathroom on the main floor, and 2 bedrooms and another full bath on the second floor. A 3rd bathroom with additional shower was located on the first floor near the laundry room. The location in Park Shore could not have been more perfect as it was walkable to the beach, as well as many restaurants and shopping including Waterside shops which was just down the street. We found an excellent Mexican Restaurant as well as a Greek Restaurant right around the corner, both we are craving now that we are back home. The villa had a total of 4 bikes that we were able to use, plus there was a bike rental shop just down the street where we rented a 5th bike for an additional family member who joined us half way through our stay. The home was exceptionally clean, private, quite, nicely decorated, very comfortable bedding, excellent furniture and the owner was very responsive and professional on all levels. We were a little nervous to pay by pay pal however the owner was really good about sending us confirmation emails throughout the entire process and made our booking experience stress free. We were also very pleased with the wireless internet service as we were able to connect with both lap tops without any problems. We will definitely return to this vacation rental during our next trip down to Naples and highly recommend this vacation rental to anybody looking for convenience to the beach as well as shopping and restaurants. Thank you for being even better then advertised, it was a pleasure to do business with you!
I had a great time, I have been going to the same conference for 9 years so I am familiar with the area. We enjoyed your house, had a great time and would love to come back to your property next year. I will keep in touch.
Michele- We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Naples, the weather was warm and sunny and we spent plenty (a little too much a couple of times) of time out in it. Your villa worked out very well for us, the big kids slept on the beds and our 9 year old fit perfectly on the big couch. I dropped the key in the mail today so you should have it sometime next week. Let me know if you need anything else from me and thanks for working with us. Best Regards Bernie
My husband , myself and extended family hit the jackpot when we secured this property as our vacation rental for the month of November 2010. We could not be more pleased with the proximity to the beach, restaurants, shopping, parks and much more. The home itself was extremely impressive due to it being modern, spacious, very clean, well equipped, well maintained and more beautiful in person then we ever imagined. The pool and hot tub were extremely private. The neighborhood was quiet and safe with all newer homes. The owner's well equipped kitchen allowed us to prepare a big thanksgiving day meal just as we would have in our own home. The owner was very professional and easy to deal with, overall great location, fabulous experience.. thank you very much, we plan on returning for our next family vacation.
hi michele, thank you very much for your promt reservation refund! we will come back to you when we plan our next trip to naples - maybe already in april next year. Your villa was perfect for us, however am wondering for other family members if you might have other vacation villas for rent??? all the best frank

Thanks for letting me know of the great restaurants that we could walk to. We went to the Greek restaurant last night for dinner and it was fantastic!!! The best bruschetta bread we have ever had! The greek salad was excellent also and we really enjoyed our meals. Too much food. Good thing we were walking. Susan
