Our home is around 10 minutes drive to the nearest beach where you can catch lovely sunsets. Great restaurants all around. Less than 10 minutes from 5th Ave. We are located on a quiet canal. It's great to sit outside in our lanai with your glass of wine or coffee & watch the boats go by. It's like a cozy little cottage on the water. Our place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers looking for a relaxing place to begin or end their day.
Very comfortable and cozy home on a quiet canal. Your bedroom is located on the opposite side of the house as ours. The hall bathroom is yours to use, alone. There's a laundry room just outside of the bedroom.
Guests will have access to their bedroom and hall bathroom, living room, dining room, kitchen, front porch and lanai, as well as the backyard
Interaction with guests
We love to chat with guests when we're around. Jeff is at work Mon-Fri all day and knows Naples very well, having been an Architect in the area for almost 30 years. An works part time and is fairly new to Naples but very open to chatting anytime. We're both around on the weekend and are happy to offer suggestions on places to go or dine. We treat our guests like friends. At breakfast time on the weekends, we're happy to join you. A great time for talking about things to do nearby. For an additional $100 per couple, when the tides and weather cooperate, we can take you on a 3-hour cruise on our sailboat "2 Sheets 2 The Wind" to the Gulf of Mexico to watch the sunset. This will include beverages and snacks.
Other things to note
On Wednesdays, Thursdays and Friday's check-in cannot be before 6pm. Other days of the week, we are fairly flexible, but prefer no check-in before 3pm. Check-out time during the week is 11am, however on the weekends, we're happy to extend it till noon.
We hope you'll treat our home like yours when visiting. When you're here, you're like family. As such, we expect you to clean up after yourselves after using any part of the house.
Our dog, Morgan, is very friendly. He's also very old. He is very hard of hearing, and can't see well. We generally clap our hands to get his attention. He loves to be petted and held. He's also all about food. If you don't watch yours he'll take it away.

Middle aged professional couple. We are practically newlyweds, having just married a little over a year ago. We went to Napa and San Francisco on our honeymoon.
Jeff is a very successful Architect here in Naples. An is semi-retired and works part time a few afternoons each week.
We love to travel but don't get to do it very often. An is a true Francophile. Loves all things French and can speak French fairly well. Paris is her favorite city in the world. She has been there many times, so much that it feels like a second home.
Jeff loves tinkering with his new "but old" sailboat, reading about aviation, hopes someday to take flying lessons and become a pilot, one of the items on his bucket list. He is very creative and designs all kinds of things around the house to make things easier and provide us with lots more storage.
Morgan, the resident dog, a Yorkshire Terrier, is almost 16 years old. He's deaf, doesn't see very well, but still has lots of spunk for an old guy, especially if cookies are involved.
