“Not just another B & B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2012

Our two night stay was not just another B & B experience. It was more like a visit with friends graciously welcoming us into their home. We were warmly greeted when we arrived. Our room plus private bathroom was private and attractive. The lovely living room area and pool and lanai were available to us as desired. Most of all, Bob and Colleen couldn't have been more helpful in suggesting activities and restaurants, along with serving absolutely delicious breakfasts. In addition, Bob joined us with the other guests during breakfast which truly made that time a highlight of our stay. (Eating out in the lanai was spectacular!) Their home is on the outskirts of Naples away from downtown in a beautiful, quiet setting. We easily got to wherever we wanted to go during the day, and came "home" to their beautiful residential neighborhood. If we ever get the opportunity to travel again from our coast to theirs, we will most definitely hope to find room for us to stay at A Dream Come True Guest House!

Bob and Coleen were wonderful B&B hosts. The breakfasts were delicious and the other guests enjoyable

We only stay at B & B's when possible. If you do not mind being in a quiet spot in Naples, this B & B is for you. Accomodations were first rate in every way. The room was stocked with everything anyone would need. And Bob's breakfast was wonderful. Who would not want to eat every morning in a lanai surrounded by a lush tropical forest. Bob was also great in advising things to do while around the greater Naples area. Also a great value for your money!

Room Tip: All rooms appear satisfactory.

Bob and Colleen could not have been more welcoming. Accommodations met all of our needs,
breakfasts outstanding. As we departed, after a three night stay, it was like saying goodbye to family. When in Naples we will definitely return.

My wife and I, along with another couple, spent four nights at this wonderful B&B. The house is relatively new and was comfortable and clean. Breakfast was alway great. (If you want something special, just tell them.) Bob & Colleen were a wonderful host & hostess. It was a great value for the price and we would definitely consider a return trip in the future. We had nothing planned for the four days and our inn keepers gave us many excellent suggestions for things to do and see.
Yes, the home is not in downtown Naples but the drive was not a problem for us. We were also snagged by the cold water on one occasion but it was not big deal. Bob explained that they try to save energy by not heating the water 24X7. So if you stay at this B&B, just ask them what the "hot time" is for the shower.

We chose this place due to price & proximity to family. My husband's mom died & we came to spread her ashes. It was a very hard time for us. Bob & Colleen were extremely attentive & accomodating. The gluten-free breakfasts were excellent! It would not have been the same in a hotel. The photos on their website do not show how beautiful their home really is! I was able to do my exercise dvd in their living room. They made us breakfast a half hour earlier so we would not miss our flight back home. We had no problem with hot water available for showers. Upon hearing my husband is of greek descent, they made a great frittata with spinach & feta cheese. They treated us like family! This is the only place I'd like to stay in when we come back to visit family!

My husband and I stayed at this private home for 2 nights. We were told that it was only a few miles from downtown Naples, but it turned out to be a 30 minute drive. Staying in this private is a very awkward experience. The Inn keepers seemed suspicious of us ( my husband is a physician and I am a pre-school teacher - about as unthreatening as you can get.). They did not give us a key to the front door and insisted on staying up until we got home at night so that they could let us in. They balked at giving us a key to our own room. Most notably, they only turn the hot water at certain times, which means that you are washing with ice cold water in the morning and you have to inform them if you want to shower during the "off" period. The home is not convenient to any restaurants or amenities. It is in a residential area.

ADREAMCOMETRUEGH, Owner at A Dream Come True Guest House, responded to this review, January 5, 2011
It is difficult to remember guests that write a review 11 months after staying with us, so let me just respond to their concerns. These guests are probably not accustomed to staying at B&B’s. B&B’s are private residences and are in residential areas. That is what gives them their charm and the opportunity to get the owners’ personal attention. Our website clearly mentions our house is located on 5 acres of land.

We open our home to our guests. We encourage guests to make our home their home. If we felt threatened by guests, we certainly wouldn’t be in this business!

Most of our guests don’t ask for a key and rarely do we get a request for a room key. But we provide these when requested. It is not a matter of trust. It is a matter of remembering to ask for the key back. We also had a bad experience with a guest who refused to pay the lost key fee of $10.

According to Mapquest, we are 13.9 miles from downtown or a 20 min drive. Naples is a community that is spread out. Our B&B is located in North Naples. This area is constantly growing and thus, has a number of restaurants within a couple of miles of our B&B. The Mercato, an upscale restaurant and shopping area, is located 8 miles from us.

Last year, we had several comments regarding the hot water heater, so we have taken it off the timer. But the timer was always on in the morning from 5 AM until after breakfast. Thus, we aren’t sure why these guests felt they did not have hot water. We also tell guests to let the water run a long time to get hot water as the heater is a distance from the rooms.

We are sorry these guests did not take the opportunity to discuss their concerns with us while they were here. We encourage our guests to discuss any issues with us, directly.
