Enjoy the clubhouse pool and hobnob with the other visitors or retreat to the privacy and comfort of your own personal heated pool and spa within the fully screened-in lanai surrounded by lush gardens that lie just through the sliding glass doors outside your bedroom.
This home features not one but two master bedroom suites both fully appointed with walk in closets and fully equipped bathrooms. Both suites open directly to the pool and spa area enclosed within the screened-in lanai and the surrounding gardens.
From the large great room with its vaulted ceilings and plant shelves to the spacious fully equipped kitchen with a breakfast bar and a formal dining area, the villa is luxurious yet relaxed. Besides the two master suites the beautiful guest room offers that comfortable Floridian feeling and the second guest's room (fun room) is the kid's favorite. With four bedrooms and a den the home has plenty of room so you can find some personal quiet space when you need a moment alone. The den-Home Theatre (also able to become a bedroom) is a wonderful place to read a book or just relax away from the group. Three full bathrooms make it easy for everyone to get ready for adventure. All the appliances are new and the washer and dryer room help keep your beach towels in top shape. Then there is the screened lanai with its outside dining area complete with covered BBQ area, dining table and chairs and ceiling fan and of course just beyond the magnificent pool and gardens. We love our home.
Within just minutes of our villa there are endless miles of white sandy beaches considered to be some of the finest beaches in the world. Relax and enjoy a stroll along the beach warming your toes in the incredibly warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico or just sit and watch the dolphins go by.
Naples is the Golf capital of the world with the PGA and LPGA both being headquartered here. There are more golf courses per mile in Naples than anywhere else in the world. Many of our Golf courses were designed by people like Greg Norman or Lee Trevino to mention just a couple. A set of gentlemen and a set of ladies golf clubs are included for your use. Tennis is just a few steps away in our three lighted, Har-Tru private courts. We even include the rackets. If you like to bike (really easy in Florida since there are no hills and plenty of bike lanes) there are plenty of bike rentals for your pleasure, although the beach is too far to ride. Boating, fishing, kayaking and an incredible array of other sports are all available within 10 minutes or less drive from our home.
Naples offers many outstanding fine dining restaurants and lounges. Several offer waterfront dining with unforgettable sunsets overlooking the beaches of Naples, Florida. Stylish and innovative restaurants with fabulous food and wine abound. There are also lots of casual places to eat all featuring great cuisine and great prices.

This is not an empty rental Villa, it is our vacation home and it is highly decorated and appointed with the best there is. The home is large but cozy. It is also deceiving. From the front it seems smaller than it is because it runs front to back instead of side to side, and it appears to be a simple Florida home until you enter and are transported into the kind of opulence you would expect to find in any 10 million dollar home down on Gordon Drive. My wife and I and our one child enjoy holidays there, but because it is spacious when my two sisters and their husbands and 6 kids join us there is plenty of room for all of us.
No five star hotel could possibly deliver the level of comfort and luxury our home provides.
The Pool and Spa are absolutely wonderful. We had them custom built with all the goodies. The heated and lighted pool (maintained at a constant 88 degrees) is 25 feet long and has an incorporated Spa separately heated and featuring massage jets and an air blower. There is also an incorporated pool seat that is conveniently placed below a sheer decent waterfall emanating from a large planter filled with exotic plants. This is a salt water pool which means it uses almost no chlorine. No there is no salt to speak of in this pool; instead it uses a small amount of salt to make a natural kind of chlorine. The water is soft and there is no smell of chlorine and your eyes don't burn when they get wet. The swimming pool is surrounded by custom brick work and a cage called a "lanai", so no bugs or anything but sun can get in. The lanai itself has a partially shaded dining area (with outdoor furnishings by Robb and Stucky), with a lighted ceiling fan is perfect for alfresco dining, or for occasions when you want to sit outside, but not in the full sun. The fully automated drop-down doors can also be closed creating a complete outdoor room for those few moments when a rain shower may pass by. The entire huge caged space (1,400 square feet inside the cage) is surrounded by beautiful gardens of palm trees, exotic flowers and fruit trees ripe for the picking. At night there is custom very high end lighting (designed especially for us by a well known lighting artist), that illuminates not just the pool but the surrounding gardens and also the front of the house. The lanai is flanked by a double row of 14 foot tall areca palms, that are enclosed inside an 8 foot fence, to the back there is a preserve so the back yard is compleatly private.
Fully private, fully yummy, its paradise.
Within a short walking distance there are markets, small shops, restaurants, liquor stores etc. Also just a few steps away from our front lawn is the clubhouse with all its facilities our private lighted tennis courts and a marvelous 36 acre lake. For things further away such as the parks and downtown Naples there are public busses and taxi companies. However to take best advantage of your holiday we recommend renting a car no matter where in Naples you stay. Downtown is 3.2 miles away and the beach is about 3.8 miles away. Walking that far with your beach gear is not comfortable. Most folks go to the beach only a few times during their stay and swim mostly in our wonderful pools, but there is so much to see and do in Naples and the surrounding area that it warrants renting a car in order to maximize your holiday. Be wary of any place that says you don't need a car. If you want it all and you want to see it all then a car is a must. If on the other hand you want just a quiet holiday in a marvelous place then our Villa and our private community will easily suffice. We highly recommend a car. Some places say that because they are directly on the beach you don't need a car. Don't believe that. This is the USA. It's big here. Distances are large. Sure if you are on the beach you can just walk there... And then... After you have roasted on the beach for a couple of days... What will you do? Stay in your room and watch TV? Or will you want to go on adventure, shopping, dining, site seeing... There is so much more to do and see. Naples, Marco Island and the Everglades offer so much but you need to be able to get there and buses and taxis end up costing you more.
