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 Florida South Gulf Coast

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.

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.

Excellent property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at this home. It is very well-supplied, and the pool and deck area RE amazing. There is a covered section, comfortable furniture and great views of the lake right behind the property. It is in a quiet, secure neighborhood and only about 10 minutes from downtown Naples. We highly recommend the property!

Villa Rilassante is definitely magical!

  • 5 of 5

This villa offers eveything you may need when you're on holiday and more! It's not just a rental home, you quickly feel at home. It is located in a beautiful neighbourhood overlooking a lake, which guarantees a stunning view as soon as you step in. It is really well maintained and the furniture , kitchenware and linen and towels are of the highest quality.

There's no need to meet the owner /property manager to check in as you enter the house with a code. When we arrived at the house it was spotless and the swimming pool set at a perfect temperature. Even though I knew I could contact Roberta, the property manager, at any time if I needed something,this was unnecessary as Anne and Peter wrote a very detailed and helpful instruction manual.

They also provide bikes, beach chairs, beach towels , which are so useful when you are travelling from abroad!

I would not only recommend it to anyone , but we would all love to come back one day.

Last but not least, Anne answered all my mails right away, and this is great for impatient travellers.

Thank you Anne and Peter!

this is a beautiful property. We had a lovely time, starbucks and restaurants are close by - within walking distance but it was a bit warm to walk when we were there. Also a publix which was very handy would definitely recommend this property and would stay here again

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.
