About Anne Galpin

I am a retired teacher from the UK. I visited Florida for the winter sunshine for health reasons and fell in love with Naples. We were visiting year after year and so decided it made sense to buy our own place. This is our very special Florida home which we love to share with our guests.

Anne Galpin purchased this house in 2008

Why Anne Galpin chose Naples

We fell in love with the Mediterranean feel of the front and then when we walked in and saw the view we knew that this was the home we had been looking for for nearly two years. The view of the lake, the space in the house for all the family and the fact that the whole of the back virtually opens up to allow the outside and inside to meld into one. The pool area was also very important to us as I love to swim and the pool and the pool-deck are fantastic. We had also rented twice on Kings Lake and loved the area with its shopping plaza and homely feel. The walks around the large lake were also a draw to us. As well as having all of this the house is in a fantastic location which means within minutes of leaving the house you can be strolling along 5th Avenue or sitting on the beach.

What makes this house unique

The wonderful location, the peace and tranquillity and the wonderful views over the lake. The amazingly spacious pool-deck which gets the sun from sun-rise until late afternoon. The ability to walk to the local supermarket for supplies. The layout of the house also allows everyone to have their own space without losing the homely feel.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a great vacation! From the stunning view when you walk through the doors, the beautiful home meticulously equipped, to all the helpful and thorough info, to all the doors opening wide onto the lanai, even to the positioning of the house - sun in the lanai in the morning and some shade in the afternoon. It was all so perfect.

We will always have great memories of this time spent with our family. Thanks Anne and Peter.

The best villa yet

  • 5 out of 5
We have just returned home after a fabulous 2 weeks in Naples and we can wholeheartedly agree with all the previous comments. The villa is large but homely and extremly comfortable, it is really well equipped and all the towels and linens are really good quality and plentiful. it is situated in a quiet community and although there are houses on each side they are hidden from view by hedging and we neither heard nor saw the neighbours at all, the view from the pool deck is delightful, as is the pool itself and there is ample room for sunbathing. The villa is approx 10 mins from the I75 and about the same to the US41 and then another couple of minutes to downtown Naples, in less than half an hour from leaving the villa you can be dipping a toe in the sea, having set up your beach chairs and umberellas, all available at the villa. Naples beach is lovely, unspoilt with pristine white sand, we saw dolphins everytime we went as well as manatees, turtles and rays and watched in awe at eagles and ospreys fishing. We use to finish our day at the beach with a frozen coffee from The Bad Ass on 3rd St. There's fabulous shopping at the Miromar outlets about 30 mins away on the 75 and it's really nice wandering up 5th Ave and browsing the shops and galleries. Another good day out was had at the Corkscrew Sanctuary, again, about 30 mins away, we saw some incredible wildlife, take a picnic as the cafe only sells snacks.
We didn't venture out to eat much as being out all day we just wanted to come back to the villa and relax but the Olde Village Pub on 3rd St does decent food and drink and the cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory is out of this world.
This is an ideal villa in a lovely part of Florida, the whole booking process has been hastle free and Anne has been lovely to deal with, in fact we got our deposit cheque back within 5 days of leaving- fantastic service- so if you're looking for a luxurious villa in a great area, close to all the things Naples has to offer then choose this one, you won't be sorry!

There was everything in the villa that you could need the owners really have thought of everything even down to things you need for the beach . The villa is set in a great location it is close to beaches , shopping malls , golf courses and great places to eat . The owner is very prompt in her replies if you have any quieres and keeps you well up to date as well as providing you with a lot of relivent information.

Beautiful home in a lovely part of the world

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in this villa for a fortnight during July / August 2014. The house is superb, lovely and spacious with a great size pool, patio area. The shower to the ensuite in the master bedroom is amazing - so large! The kids loving having a tv in their room and we loved opening the door to our bedroom and walking straight outside to the pool. Anne is very well organised and provides lots of information on the property and surrounding area. We also made good use of her beach equipment when visiting all the wonderful, sandy beaches in the surrounding area of Naples and Marco Island.
A great holiday home, I only wish I could live here permanently!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for taking the time to write your wonderful review of our Florida home. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and all that the house has to offer. We do our very best to ensure that all of our guests have the best time possible and we are constantly up-grading the house to ensure that it never falls below the high standard that we have set. Having already up-graded one of the bathrooms the toilet is scheduled for a re-model in October to full bath. So should you return in the future we know you will not be disappointed.
Thanks again.

This property was everything promised and more!!

  • 5 out of 5
We were in need of serenity, peace and quiet. We found it!! The house is super spacious and the layout is nice and open with plenty of comfortable spots to relax both indoor and out. They had bikes, tennis rackets available to use and pool floats as well. Everything was clean and well kept, it appears the owners are steadily upgrading the house, as the guest bath was recently completely done over with granite in the shower and vanity. The communication with the owner was prompt/helpful and all the info was there already for us to peruse making getting around to some very cool spots a breeze. We would recommend it over and over and we will do this again next year.

We played golf at some VERY nice courses that are easily found
& nearby, then relaxed at the pool in the evenings. The house is so welcoming, we actually did more cooking/grilling & staying in and were just fine with it. However, all the shops and very nice restaurants are just a short drive away. The scene down on 5th street is definitely one to take in.

Thank you for what was certainly one of our favorite vaca's to date!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful review. We strive to make our guests experience the best that we can and we are so pleased that this was indeed your favourite holiday experience. Most of our guests tell us that they did not need or want to leave the house as much as they had expected. We look forward to welcoming you back next year when you will indeed find that we have added to the house further with a third bathroom being added in October 2014 (by an extension to the current powder room). It will of course be top quality as with everything else that we do at the house. Thanks again, Anne and Pete

Naples restful spot!!!

  • 5 out of 5
If you are looking for the perfect place to enjoy a peaceful, relaxing and comfortable vacation, this is the place!! This is the full package from the the rental process through the end of your stay! The combination of the beautiful and spaceous home and the sorounding areas makes this place perfect. We have traveled ab\nd rented homes in various locations in Florida. This home surpassess all others so far. It offered comfort and convenience as it is located very close to beautiful Naples beach! The lake in back of the house offered another dimension of relaxation and the greenery and landscape makes it that much better. You can ralax by the pool or if prefered, sit by the lake to watch the wildlife and enjoy the relaxing breezes. The house is fully equipped and absolutely clean. I traveled with my adult children and out of all the locations we have vacationed in, this is the only place they are considering to re-visit in the near future so chances are... we will return to this location next year and believe me, this is (in my book) an achievement. The renting process and and the communication with the owners was also fantastic which made the whole experience unique and easy!!! They were very helpful and friendly which is a trate not easily found these days! I give this home a true 5 star rating and extend a special thanks to the owners (Anne) for sharing this wonderful place!

This beautiful villa is located in Kings Lake, a prestigious established community that is mature and tranquil and yet is one of the closest communities to downtown Naples and the beaches. It's location is one of the best in the community, on a quiet street with the widest lake views. It is a short drive from Olde Naples, with up-market shopping and restaurants, Naples waterfront with shopping, boating and dining, Naples Pier and the spectacular Gulf Coast beaches. The community has tennis courts and a jogging path for cycling, running or walking to the nearby shopping plaza. There is also a jogging path around the nearby larger lake. Naples is conveniently located to explore South West Florida's Gulf Coast and the Everglades. Naples boasts many cultural and artistic attractions as well as abundant wildlife. You can watch eagles, ospreys, herons, storks and more without leaving the pool. Bikes are provided so you can explore the local area. There are numerous golf courses nearby. You can fish from the lake or join the local fisherman down at Naples Pier or just stroll the Pier and watch out for dolphins, manatee and other remarkable wild-life. Relax and unwind on the spectacular pool-deck, shop in the many wonderful shops, admire the natural world in the Everglades and many natural parks, walk the lakes and the beaches, play golf or tennis .....whatever way you wish to spend your holiday this is the perfect place from which to start.
