Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in South Naples - Paradise Found

2 Br / 2 Ba Ground Floor, Expansive Lake Views, Luxury Renovation

'Paradise Found' at Falling Waters

If you've been looking for the perfect vacation villa in South Florida, look no further. 'Paradise Found' is ready to meet the needs of the most discerning guests.

We purchased 'Paradise Found' in 2012 and completed 100% renovation of the home in October 2012. Our neighbors say we should charge admission to tour this unit, but we think you'll want to keep it all to yourself!

Its stately gated entrance gives way to a grand boulevard lined with trees, flowers and waterfalls leading to the villa and its lakefront views. After you see the villa's chef's ready granite and stainless kitchen and spa-like 2 headed walk-in shower with bench seating, we think you'll agree that 'Paradise Found' has everything you'll need for the perfect trip to Naples.

Imagine the sun climbing over the palm trees and glistening off the lake as you sip your morning coffee on the expansive rear lanai. A 20 foot high fountain provides a soothing backdrop to the view of the private island complete with its own coconut, banana and bird of paradise vegetation. The island's lush foliage provides great shade for a late afternoon snack or glass of wine.

Back at 'Paradise Found' you will enjoy a 2 BR / 2 BA 1351 sq ft under air with front (79 sq ft) and rear lanais (165 sq. ft) giving this end-unit villa lots of light and an airy feel. You'll love its walk in showers with invigorating rain shower heads with grab bars for easy access, 2 lanais (front and rear) for enjoying the tropical sights and sounds, and its contemporary yet comfortable furnishings including large screen flat paneled wall mounted televisions with surround sound.

We've spared no expense to ensure that Paradise Found is ready to meet your perfect vacation wish-list. The unit has WIFI internet and unlimited long distance calling to keep in touch with friends and family. And when you are ready to step out of the villa, Falling Water's rich amenities are at your door. Its 13,000 sq. ft pool (one of largest in SW Florida) with waterfalls and islands is a great spot to relax, meet neighbors from around the world, and catch some sun. The clubhouse complex has 2 tennis courts and shaded / screened bocce courts. The putting green is down the street, and the 2.1 mile neighborhood walking / biking path is a great way to get some exercise.

Outside of Falling Waters' gates lie Naples' rich amenities including world-class gulf beaches and shopping, arts centers, fishing and nature preserves all within 10 - 15 minutes drive. 5th Ave is within a short drive. We've been vacationers in Naples for over 5 years and we are confident that you are going to love Paradise Found not only for its luxury and comfort, but how easy it is to take advantage of all that Naples has to offer.

We invite you to book your stay today!

The unit has 2 BR / 2 BA. The master BR is a King Bedroom and offers an oversize walk in shower with grab bars, a stone bench, and 2 spa like rain shower heads.

The guest BR can be configured as 2 twins or a king based on your preference. The guest bath includes a walk in shower with grab bar and sliding glass doors.

We provide 4 beach chairs, umbrella and beach towels for your use along with 2 bicycles. We're happy to share our tips and recommendations in a booklet we'll leave for your reference. We're confident you'll love Naples as much as we do!

Please note this is a 100% non-smoking unit including the exterior lanai. No smoking is permitted.

About Matthew Crudello

The owners of Paradise Found (Vincent, Ruth and their son Matt) grew up in Northern NJ and always dreamed about having a place somewhere warm. After Vincent and Ruth rented for 5 seasons in Falling Waters, they decided to purchase a villa with their son Matt and made Falling Waters their home away from home.

They bought Paradise Found in April 2012 and spent 5 months stripping it back to the walls and renovating the home to create your perfect vacation spot. It's a great combination of comfort, style, simplicity and serenity. Vincent and Ruth are glad the 4 years of tuition payments to the University of Virginia were finally turning into something FUN! If it weren't for HGTV, Vinny and Ruth don't think they would have ever had the courage to do a 100% renovation project! Thanks HGTV!

Matt has owned another property on the Outer Banks of North Carolina for 8 years and has put all that he's learned from managing that property into helping future guests of Paradise Found create memories that will last a lifetime.

Why Matthew Crudello chose Florida South Gulf Coast

After wintering in Siesta Key for several years, we found Falling Waters and never looked elsewhere. We're confident that Falling Waters (and Naples) will exceed your highest expectations- peaceful, beautiful, friendly and lush.

Why choose Paradise Found? We gutted the original condo to the walls and outfitted it with amenities and furnishings that will delight you. From the tile to the lighting, baths to kitchen- even the electrical outlets - Paradise Found is better than the day it was 1st built. All of this is to ensure that you have an absolutely exquisite stay.

What makes this condo unique

This property overlooks a lake with two fountains and its own private island. The fountain lulls you to sleep with its soothing sounds from 830 AM to 1100PM. After dark, its lights provide a beautiful back drop. The island is a short 2 minute walk from your lanai and it truly feels like the places we experienced on our 40th wedding anniversary trip to Maui several years ago. All sorts of fruit, coconuts, and tropical foliage abound. Several seating areas allow for a peaceful respite to read, enjoy a glass of wine or just relax. And if you are in luck, the wind just might blow the fountain's cool mist on a warm winter afternoon to cool you.

feels like home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for the second time in Falling Waters in a condo of Matt.

Paradise Found is really a lovely house.

Every year that we come to Naples, it feels like coming home and staying in the condos of Matt and his family makes it even more home.

Everything that is described on the website is true, so lovely decorated, fully equipped. Everything you need is there.

Naples is a very beautiful place to spend your holiday. The beach is gorgeous, the pier is great for fishing and watching the dolphins swim around.

Naples is also a good place from where to do excursions and activities.

Contact with the owner is good, he responds directly. He is there when you need him.

So Matt and family thank you very much for giving us the opportunity to stay in your condo again and like we said last year we defenitely come back!!

Best Regards, Dennis and Melanie

A pleasant stay

  • 5 of 5

It was a pleasant stay in this appartment. It was clean, and everything you needed (and more) was available, like an outdoor kitchen, tv, phone, internet, beach accessoiries, parking garage. The appartment was bigger then expected, larger then on the pictures. It has been decorated and funished nicely.

Falling Waters is a very nice comunity, very well maintained, a huge nice pool and friendly people. It's located 10 min drive from naples old town and 15 away from naples beach (pier). The owner is very helpfull and react quickly at emails. We ll be back next year. Thank you

Wonderful southwest Florida! 10 minute drive to the Gulf beaches with easy access to restaurants, the arts, the everglades and shopping. Downtown Old Naples is a beautiful walkable community with lights sparkling in the palm trees, musicians and sidewalk cafes offering food for all price ranges. Galleries and museums give way to stately palms between downtown and the Guld beaches. It's not to be missed!

Falling Waters is an amazing gated community with lush tropical plantings, lake views, brick walkways and the largest pool in Southwest Florida with its own waterfall and islands just 10 mins east of Old Naples. Come see why this is such a highly sought after community. Its amenities and tranquility are without equal in Naples.

It's an easy 20 minute drive to Marco Island for amazing seafood (Snooks) and an easy 3 stop lights and 90 minute drive to Fort Lauderdale.

Visit Naples for your next Florida vacation! You won't regret it!
