Activities/Attractions: Naples is the crown jewel of Southwest Florida - nestled on the sun drenched beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. Naples is known for world class shopping, dining and abundant, challenging golf courses. It is also, only steps away from island seclusion or the untamed tropical wilderness of The Everglades. Boasting one of the nation's best sandboxes and calmest seas, Naples makes a splash with water lovers and recreationists. Friendly parks beckon sports enthusiasts and picnickers with lovely green spaces and recreational facilities.

Your room is an easy walk to the beach (3 blocks), exclusive 5th Avenue and 3rd Street shops, historic fishing pier, tennis courts, Cambier Park (for tennis and outdoor concerts), art galleries, and restaurants. The Gondolier's quiet and friendly environment is perfect for just taking it easy. Walking the beach/shelling is a favorite pastime.

For Florida nature lovers, there's the Everglades National Park, the Audubon Corkscrew Swamp, Collier State Park, and the Fakahatchee Cypress Reserve - and each is close enough to visit in a single day.

"If you're looking for value in an excellent location, you'll love the Gondolier Apartments. Each apartment has a kitchenette so you can have some or all meals there. There is a lending library, and laundry facilities. No phones in the rooms, but you have phone access with a phone card. Henry and Janeen are your very personable hosts and will gladly give you suggestions on where to go and what to see. We've stayed there for seven different years now and so its like returning home. Very comfortable."

"We came across the Gondolier by accident having just driven directly from Miami, and what a fantastic find. Henry, the proprietor, greeted us like member of the family and showed us around two apartments and we made our choice. The rooms are simple, but really well equipped and spotlessly clean. With Henry and Janine at your disposal, it is like having a tourist information office on your doorstep. The Gondolier was one of the highlights of our Florida tour, and I only wish we could have stayed longer. It is perfectly placed within a few minutes walk from the beach, 5th Ave and 3rd St shops, restaurants and bars."

"You can vacation affordably in the most desirable part of Old Naples. If you find space at the Gondolier Apartments & Inn, you've hit the Jackpot!"

"The host, Henry was very helpful and nice. We even got a card from him after we got back! The efficiency unit we stayed in had everything we needed for a pleasant vacation. The location was hard to beat- only steps from everything."

"My friend and I have stayed at the Gondolier twice and will be returning in 09 for a 3rd visit. What a great place. Great location, reasonably priced. Clean and Henry is so knowledgeable about the area and can give a lot of tips on traveling the area. We love the Gondolier."

"We had everything we needed - a very comfortable bed, good air conditioning, a kitchenette, scrupulous cleanliness, and an affordable price tag. The retro-fifties decor of the Gondolier is tasteful and lovingly maintained. Mostly everything of importance to us was within easy walking distance, especially the extraordinarily beautiful beach, and beach chairs, beach towels, and umbrellas were supplied by the owner. He himself is generous with helpful information about Naples, and aims to keep his guests happy and comfortable. In this he succeeds!"

"Charming and a great location walking distance to the beach,3rd. St. and 5th Ave. shopping and restaurants. This venerable 50's style lodging has been in the owner's family for over 50 years and Henry, the present owner, is a very proud and attentive host and a mine of information. The units are not fancy but they are clean and well furnished and equipped and Henry supplies beach chairs, umbrellas and towels as well as books a laundry with ironing board and even mangoes from his tree! There is a pleasant yard in back for relaxing and each unit has a little table and chairs outside. I highly recommend this place as do others who return year after year with hearty greetings and hugs for Henry."

"We stayed here for two nights in February. Henry, the owner was very nice and friendly. The property was a cute 50ish kind of place with clean rooms with comfortable beds and little kitchen, microwave , toaster etc. There was free internet service and nice grounds."

"We stayed at the Gondolier for 2 nights during our Florida tour and it turned out to be the best place we stayed in our 14 night holiday. The apartments have a very 50's feel to them but they are spotlessly clean and are well equipped. Henry the owner gives you a guided tour before you check in and gives you advice and directions on anything you need to know. This place was by far the nicest we stopped in during our two week Florida holiday and would recommend it to anyone and everyone."
