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 and less than 4 miles to Olde Naples, the pier and Naples beach. Really it does have the best of both worlds. 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. It is also amazing to have such an array of wildlife right on the lake which you can watch from the comfort of the pool-deck. We regularly see Bald eagles and even have a Golden Eagle pair that hunt over the lake. The screened courtyard at at the front of the property is a unique feature and is a lovely quite spot for relaxation or for children to play safely. The house is in a very quiet location on the best road which is very peaceful and full of lovely homes and gardens.

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.

A wonderful and relaxing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had thirteen nights in this wonderful villa, and wished we could have stayed longer. The booking process went extremely smoothly and Anne, the owner, responded quickly to my numerous questions, was very efficient, and provided detailed information on the villa and surrounding area before we left. We arrived late in the evening and as there are no keys to collect, were able to access the villa easily with the code provided. Anne had been aware we intended to use the Den as a fourth bedroom, and ensured that the sofa bed had been made up for our arrival. We found a couple of minor problems when we arose the following day, but one quick phone call to the local management company, and they were sorted the same day. What you see in the photos on the website is what you get. The villa is large and spacious, and clean, and there's all the equipment you might need available to you: plenty of towels, bedding, kitchen utensils, crockery and glassware, beach chairs & umbrella, DVD's, books, games, washer, drier, hairdryers, and more. The best thing of all however has to be the view from the pool area across the beautiful lake. The villa is in a quiet residential area, and it was so relaxing to sit and watch the sun rise and set across the lake, to see the different birds and wildlife. It was also a great place to watch the lightning storms! From the villa it's only a ten minute drive to Downtown Naples, and a couple of minutes further to the beach and pier. It's also easy to get to Marco Island (30 minutes) and the Everglades (~50-60 minutes). There's plenty to see and do in the surrounding area. Our favourite days included a Corrie Billy's Airboat ride (on the way to the Everglades), our boat trip with Naples Water Tours (which included swimming off Keewaydin Island, dolphin spotting and jetskiing), and kayaking with the Naples Kayak Company. Great places to eat included the Snook Inn on Marco Island, The Dock at Cayton Cove, and Roma Bistro on 5th Avenue. The ice cream from Kilwins on 5th is delicious!. The beaches in the area are amazing and we had great days at Lowdermilk , Barefoot and Tigertail (Marco Island) beaches. There's a Publix supermarket, Starbucks and Subway very close by and several shopping malls close to Downtown Naples. We were sad when the day of our departure came around, but if we ever go back to Naples, won't hesitate to see if this property is available for our stay. Our deposit was returned to us within a week of leaving.

Great house in a very peaceful location.

  • 5 of 5

My family of six stayed here and we loved the house. Very spacious and well equipped. We especially liked all the beach gear that was available for us to use. The house felt like a home and not like a vacation rental. The best part by far was the pool and lanai area in the back. The only negative thing I could say is that the kitchen is a bit dated. But that was really not a big deal. Would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in villa Rilassante a number of times and plan to return again next year. It is a lovely property and Anne is a delight to deal with. We love Naples and this villa meets and exceeds all our needs. Everything is just so homely and comfortable, if not better than it looks on the photos. Of course what we love most is the amazing outside area, with a lovely warm pool, luxury loungers and the outstanding view. I could go on and on, if you are looking for a villa in Naples, do not hesitate.
