“A hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2006

We came across the Gondolier by accident having just driven directly fron Miami, and what a fantastic find. Henry, the proprieter, greeted us like member of the family and showed us around two appartments and we made our choice. The rooms are simple, but really well equiped and spotlessly clean. Clean towels for room or beach are there whenever they're needed. Beach loungers are at your disposal, and more books and magazines than you could imagine are there for all to use.
With Henry and Janine at your disposal is like having a tourist infoemation office on your doorstep, they gave us a complete runtown of the immediate area with copies of maps, and tour guides, as well as all the atractions within a wide radius. Henry also has a selection of menus from all the resaurants in Naples and could carve out a new carear as a food critic if he so wished.
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.

If you're looking for value in an excellent location, you'll love the Gondolier Apartments. They were built in 1958 and are a little dated, but wonderfully maintained. It is only a four block walk to the pristine beaches of Naples (miles of beach access for walking, sunbathing or playing in the gulf). The famous shopping/dining districts of 5th Ave. South and Third Street are also only blocks away. Each apartment has a kitchnette 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.
