Wonderful stay

My wife and I had the great pleasure of vacationing in Naples Florida for the past six weeks. What made our time there even more enjoyable was the fact that we rented the beautiful condo of Helen and Ken Van deMark at the Saratoga community of Lely Resort. The unit was very clean, neat and well furnished. Helen and Ken were most gracious hosts. We would definitely rent from them again!

Our family had the pleasure of residing at this condo in Saratoga. The condo is spacious, very clean, and pleasantly decorated. The owners are organized, welcoming, and accessible. The Saratoga division of Lely Resort is beautiful and well kept. The grounds are landscaped to perfection and this particular location is within walking distance to the Player's Club, an upscale resort including a variety of pools, tennis courts, bocce ball courts, basketball courts, restaurants/bar and more. This condo and location is highly recommended for a spectacular vacation near downtown Naples and Marco Island with both locations having beautiful beaches.

This is the way you want to spend your winters.

My wife and I stayed for three months at the Saratoga Condo. The condo was very comfortable, clean and very well maintained. The owners were very organized with information about the condo and area and were very accessible if you needed them. A wonderful experience in a beautiful area. We have signed up for next year and hope to be able to return in future years. Many thanks to Helen and Kenneth for their efforts in making our stay an enjoyable and memorable one.

Wonderful place, location and experience from start to finish

Our family stayed at Ken and Helen's condo in July 2014 and I have nothing but great things to say about the experience. Ken and Helen went above and beyond in ensuring we had the ultimate family vacation. The condo was incredibly spacious and clean, we were loaded with information on the area, local attractions and good restaurants. We loved the beach and spent a lot of time at the resort that is conveniently located just down the road. Thank you Ken and Helen for your amazing, ongoing assistance in making it a truly wonderful family holiday

Perfect Destination

Thank you Helen and Kenneth for offering us such a wonderful place to stay! We loved your unit. It was perfectly located within the Lely community and so beautifully appointed and cared for.  You had everything so well through for your guests that we had everything right at our fingertips. The proximity to the community pool as well as the Players Club was ideal. We took full advantage of the golf, tennis, pool, and restaurants during our stay. The view of the golf course from the lanai  was wonderful. Beautiful and peaceful. Great in the mornings and evenings! We felt very much at home and would definitely come back for another stay.

Beautiful Vacation!

Thanks Helen and Kenneth for letting us enjoy your beautiful house! We had incredible vacations in spite the weather. It was impeccable, neat and beautifully decorated. Fully equipped with brand new furniture, accessories, sheets, towels, machines, etc. The view was very nice and had peaceful surroundings. And thanks for all the information and support given all the time about places, beaches, activities and venues to visit. We really felt as at "home" and we would love to come back again!

A Most Enjoyable Stay

This is the third year we have rented this first floor Saratoga coach house. We have been extremely pleased with each of our stays. As you go through the front door there exudes a feeling of happy vibes within the house. The foyer and hall lead to a spacious den on the right and a magnificent large living room on the left. The den has pocket doors that opens into a bright and airy kitchen. The den also contains a sofa which turns into a pull-out bed. At the end of the living room are large sliding glass doors opening to a lanai, which is set up as a charming dining area. This provides an intimate dining experience to the guest on warm and balmy evenings. We also enjoyed many lunches in the lanai looking over the Flamingo golf course. The master bedroom is off the living room. It has all the amenities expected which includes tv, dresser, side tables, queen bed and a large comfortable chair which provides a nice place to escape and catch up on one's reading. On the way to the ensuite, which has two granite counter tops, a soaker tub and a separate shower, there is a walk-in closet and a regular closet. The coach house also has a second bedroom with the main bathroom beside it. This area can be conveniently closed off to create a separate ensuite situation if so desired. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone interested in renting a coach house in the Naples area.

Accurate 

We have rented from Kenneth and Helen three times, just signed up for a fourth. Even though we have never met in person we feel as though we know them. They put a lot of thought in their property, everything is in perfect shape, their taste is exceptional. No matter what you want you will find it in the condo. The setting is so lovely, Saratoga is one of the nicest areas in Lely. The flowers, the pool, the club house are all in pristine condition. It is so nice to sit on the lanai, in the comfortable chairs and just watch the birds or the golfers. I love to have guests because they are always so impressed with the condo, I feel a sense of ownership myself and enjoy the compliments. The proximity to the Players Club is great. We don't even rent a car, bikes are fine. If you want a great vacation you couldn't do better than this unit.

Saratoga Coach Home

Had a wonderful time. All my needs were met and then some. Helen & Kenneth were very helpful and accommodating. I would definitely stay here again. The Lely Resort is magnificent. When my grandchildren arrived they had a ball.

Golf Getaway

This was my second visit to Naples, staying at this great condo.  There were 3 adults and we had plenty of space.  The golf in Naples is world class. Played many courses including The Flamingo and Tiburon.   We were able to book last minute tee times and played at reduced rates.  The owners have a book of recommended restaurants in the area.  We enjoyed great Florida style meals at Cracklin' Jack's, Larry's Lunchbox and Pinchers Crab Shack.  We also used the pool and work out facilities at The Player's Club & Spa.  This was an amazing trip!

Relaxing Summer Getaway

Stayed at this clean, spacious condo for 2 weeks. The condo is nicely furnished and very well equipped for a comfortable stay. I really enjoyed eating meals on the lanai while overlooking the golf course. You feel at home the minute you walk in. The owners are great to deal with and respond right away if you have any questions. The condo is right next to The Players Club so it was so convenient to just walk over. I used the pool, fitness facility and sauna daily. The club is beautiful and like a Caribbean resort. I will definitively return
