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.

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.

Lovely home with wonderful pool

  • 5 of 5

Great family get away. You never need to leave! However if you are up for adventure you can go to shop or eat Tin City, enjoy a sight seeing cruise , have fun on a scavenger hunt of Old Naples or go shelling at one of the nearby beaches. Thus home had it all.

We rented this for a family vacation and our two kids and their family stayed there. It was great. There was plenty of space for the two families and everyone especially the kids loved the pool. Owner was great to work with.

We stayed at the Villa for 15 nights during the last 2 weeks of August, within our party were 4 adults and two teenage children.

The owner is attentive, responsive and does everything she can to make sure your stay is enjoyable. Book with confidence knowing that you will not be disappointed in any way.

The villa is located in a quiet, safe and convenient location. Naples has lots of restaurants to offer suiting all budgets, including take outs. We ate most nights and were never disappointed. We enjoyed meals on 5th Avenue and 3rd Street as well as the old favourites including Olive Garden, Texas Road House, Longhorns and the Cheese Cake Factory (The only time we could manage a pudding). The Rumba Cuba Cafe is close by and is well worth a visit - very tasty food with large portions. There is a Publix supermarket within 5 minutes drive and a Walmart approximately 10 minutes drive away.

There are also numerous enjoyable boat trips nearby with easy access to boat rides on the Everglades - check out Groupon for discounts. We used the Naples Princess and Jungle Ervs Airboats. The teenagers enjoyed feeding the giraffes at Naples Zoo, not something you can do every day!

A day trip to Sanibel Island was also enjoyable, with a scenic drive along the coast road. The Estero shopping outlet is approximately 40 minutes away and is full of heavily discounted major retail outlets/designer names. We visited this twice and ate at the Ford Garage where the burgers are great.

The villa is immaculate and very well cared for and the photos you see are what you get. The pool area was warm, clean and safe - other villas we have stayed previously have had a potential slip risk but not this one. There is everything you will need during your stay – a well stocked kitchen, plenty of towels and bedding and seemingly everything you need for outdoor pursuits and the beach. The barbecue was clean and available to use - we enjoyed entertaining extended family during our stay.

This villa is a 10 minute drive from an amazing beach and a wonderful Pier. The sea was clean and very warm, my daughters swam with dolphins a few metres away from them. The sight of a dolphin spinning in a breaking wave very close to the beach will live with us forever.

Owner's Response: Thank you Jon for your lovely review, and congratulations on being our 100th reviewers (no prizes I’m afraid!). When we first walked through the door we knew the search was over, and it’s fantastic that all our guests have been equally impressed. There are even more lovely comments in the guest books we keep in the villa. We should also mention that the next visitor we had after Jon and his family was Irma! The eye passed over Naples, but Villa Rilassante stood strong and secure, being made of concrete with a tile roof. We are currently a palm tree short of paradise, but the villa, the gardens and the views are as good as ever. We look forward to welcoming new and returning guests to experience a truly memorable vacation.

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.

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.
