Major renovations and improvements were done to the condo, including designer Italian hardwood-like tiles in the living and dining rooms, new carpet in the bedrooms, new, modern stainless steel appliances in the kitchen, and brand new efficient/storm-rated windows.

The apartment has tasteful furniture and includes all the usual house items for a comfortable every day living, such as: 46” HD LED TV in the living room to a 26' HD LCD TV in the master bedroom, a kitchen with coffee maker, toaster, pots, pans, and silverware, clothes washer and dryer, everything one needs for perfect comfort, just like home.

Linens and towels for 2-4 persons are included, as well as high speed internet (wired and wireless) and tens of Cable TV channels.

About Florin & Razvan Constantinescu

We are two brothers that purchased this property in order for our family and friends to enjoy affordable, beautiful vacations in great weather and surroundings. We've already had great time there and plan to have many more great vacations, especially when we'll retire!

We are renting it when we're not there just to alleviate some of the maintenance and utilities costs, as well as renovating and improving it - we are not doing it as a business to necessarily make a profit.

Members of the Winterpark/Lakewood/Glade + Nearby Neighborhoods Next-door site since 2015.

Florin & Razvan Constantinescu purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Florin & Razvan Constantinescu chose Florida South Gulf Coast

Naples, Florida is a beautiful, quiet, safe area with nice, friendly people and perfect weather. Note: not to be confused with Naples, Italy - which is very nice too, but in Europe - pretty far and much more expensive!

The amenities in the Winterpark resort and the proximity to everything, including beautiful beaches, shopping, and restaurants, made us pick this amongst other properties and locations in Florida.

Since buying this condo, we have continuously maintained, improved, and renovated the property ourselves, such as:

Fall 2013: fresh, colorful, vacation-style paint in all rooms, new light fixtures, switches and outlets, and decorated it in a simple, tasteful manner, with everything one needs, but not overcrowded.

Spring 2014: the original carpet in the dining and living room has been replaced with Italian wood-like HD tiles that look very nice and easy to maintain. The kitchen also got a thorough renovation with granite countertop tiles and brand new stainless steel Frigidaire appliances.

Fall 2015: replaced all windows with hurricane/storm rated energy efficient ones and replaced the carpet in the bedrooms.

Winter 2016: replaced the old clothes washer and dryer with brand new, EnergyStar models.

As we save some more money, we plan to further update and upgrade throughout the apartment, both for us and our guests' comfort and enjoyment!

Our neighbors in Winterpark resort are very friendly, most of them either owning condos or renting there for years. It is a very relaxing place overall, making it a perfect, affordable vacation spot!

We personally think of it as the Caribbean in our US backyard!

What makes this apartment unique

Winterpark has that vacation resort feel, very well maintained, having a gorgeous huge pool and plenty tennis courts within walking distance. It has an ideal location, conveniently located close to Naples 5th Avenue trendy area and beautiful Gulf of Mexico beaches. Within a short distance (Marco Island) or a slighlty longer drive (Captiva & Sanibel islands, Miami, or the Florida Keys), one can find many other beautiful places and activities that will make it one of the best and unforgettable vacations ever!.

This particular apartment not only has everything one would need, just like home, but the owners' undivided attention to details and exceptional service. We have a dedicated team for cleaning and maintenance, very serious, trustworthy, and professional people!

We strive for our guests' unforgettable experience and we'll do everything possible to make that happen!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is just a short note/critique of our stay stay at your condo this past month and a half. We did enjoy our stay VERY much and had exceptionally beautiful weather.

1. We do want to let you know that there was NO broiler pan in the oven drawer of your new stove. (if you did not get one, call the company as a broiler pan comes with every stove!

2. Dining room chair legs are Very wobbly and will not stay tightened.

3. Bedroom TV - got it working, (after we messed it up) but could not get rid of the blank box in R hand lower corner section.

4. The maintenance people were VERY helpful RE: the dining room chairs, the thermostat and the WiFi.

5. In over 25 years of coming to Winter Park, your condo has the best mattresses.

6. In over 25 years of coming to Winter Park your windows and door tracks are the cleanest!

7. A few more hand towels and bath towels would help. Also, at least another set of sheets for all beds would make it easier when it is time to wash and change sheets.

8. Maybe your dryer vents need cleaning as sometimes we had to turn the dryer on twice to dry towels and heavier loads.

9. If your place is available March 1st thru April 15th 2017, we would be interested as we loved being on the first floor this year - at our age 82 and 86.

Sincerely,

V

Naples is a beautiful vacation destination that is located in the southwest part of Florida and has long been known as a hot spot for wealthy retirees and Fortune 500 executives - in 2008, Naples-Marco Island ranked third in the country for its personal income.

The tropical feel of the area, well maintained grounds all around and full of attractions, makes Naples the perfect vacation/relaxation place for youngsters, families, or retirees.

Home to the Golf Capital of the World, Naples attracts millions of golfers annually. You can play a round of golf on some of the best golf courses available in the US, with over 50 golf courses to choose from, many of them have been designed by golf pros Tom Fazio and Jack Nicklaus.

A Vacation Rental in Naples provides wonderful beach destinations to enjoy sunbathing and fun in the white sand. The coastal waters provide plenty of fun as well: you can visit the piers, go deep sea fishing, spend the day snorkeling or take a boat ride. The surf is gentle on Naples Beatches, so the family can enjoy swimming and body boarding in the ocean.

If you are a nature lover you will have a great time spending the day in the Everglades, Parks or Wildlife Preserves. The Everglades known as the 'River of Grass' is home to several species of wildlife. You may be able to observe alligators, birds, racoons, black bears, wild cats and several species of trees and plants. This is a great place to take the family and learn about the different wildlife and plant species. You can hike through the parks or rent a canoe or kayak for the day.

Naples, FL is a vacation paradise where you can enjoy the sun, beaches, golfing, shopping and the outdoors. You will also have a variety of upscale restaurants you can choose from to dine in. In summary, all the ingredients to make it the perfect vacation! Looking forward to welcome you as our guest!

Beautiful Condo, nicely furnished and adequate kitchen supplies. Excellent location to the pool. We loved everything about our stay wouldn't change a thing, hope we can return another time. Everything you need is there and ready for you to enjoy. The owners made everything easy and welcoming. If we go back to Naples next year this is the Condo we would rent again.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 3 months in this condo. This is our 2nd year staying here. We had a wonderful stay. It is close to the super beautiful pool, nice view out the living room and a clean place. Nice appliances a long with a super washing machine and dryer. Tv's and internet work great. Couches could be a little bit firmer, but we would spend most of the day outside anyway. Towels could be upgraded to some fluffier ones. Neighbors around the condo are super people! The owners are very nice people to deal with any needs or concerns. We would rent again if we decide to come back. This condo is located near many shopping areas and the beautiful beaches. It is in a perfect location.

Winter Park Naples, Florida Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My stay at this beautiful home was magnificent in many ways. To start my experience, the owners were not only responsible and accomodating, but they seemed kind and caring through their actions and words.

The area in Naples was not only gorgeous with spectacular weather the location was very convenient. Grocery store, restaurants, coffe shop, and tropical pool were a short walking distance away. The incredible ocean sunset views with upscale restaurants were a few minutes drive away. More upscale shopping and dining at the fabulous outdoor Mercato Mall was about a 20 minute drive.

The turn key convenience of the condo was extraordinary from the updated appliances, kitchen, and bathroom to every houseware items being readily available to meet all my needs.

The sunsets sitting on the deck were mesmerizing as were the peaceful coffee breakfast breaks on the lanai. Many Floridian decorations from seashells, ocean landscapes, palm tree and flamingo lights added a nice touch to my stay that made this midwestern woman's dream come true! As icing on the cake, I met many wonderful people who shared this terrific tropical adventure with me! Thank you for this opportunity. I hope to be back soon.

Very inpressed and would stay again!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location, very quiet, loved the pool! Minor issues at the beginning of finding the pool because you actually have to leave the development and cross the street but very worth it. Also not knowing the key hanging in the hallway was for the pool but we worked it out. Maybe note those things in your binder :) My husband missed Fox News but he survived. Internet is touch and go when streaming Netflix and Hulu but worked fine for surfing the net. You might want to look into a new vacuum(very loud) and broom(very old). Other than that we had an amazing little vacation while working on a renovation property in Naples!! We plan on staying here again in the future! Thank you for allowing us to stay in your condo.

Owner's Response: Great feedback, much appreciated! We'll update the Guest binder with these details, as well as the vacuum and broom. We'll also look into the internet speed, 25 Mbs as promised should be good enough for streaming video, albeit not 4K! Glad that we were up to your expectations and looking forward to have you back!

Winter Get Away

  • 5 of 5

The condo was a perfect winter get away. It was brightly painted with lovely pictures on the wall. The furniture was tasteful and the kitchen had very nice appliances. We were lucky to be there when the brand new washer and dryer were installed. The owners were available via email anytime. They were very nice and wonderful to deal with. We were lucky to meet one of the brothers and it confirmed our faith in the owners. The neighbors around our condo were very nice especially the lovely 90 year old man above us. It is a short walk to the beautiful pool, tennis courts and club house. The Winterpark complex is kept beautiful with all the trees and flowers around. It is a well kept complex.We have met very nice people at this facility who are also coming back. This condo is situated in a perfect area. The ocean is about 4 miles away with shopping on 5th Ave and restaurants. There is also a small mall within walking distance where you can get groceries, Starbucks, Health club and restaurants. We are very happy we are coming back next year for 3 months. It is a nice home away from home.
