I grew up in Naples and attended St Ann’s grade school and Naples High School. Go Eagles! I then went to Edison in Ft Myers and The University of Florida. While at Edison College, I met my husband, Ron. We were married in Naples, and he did a tour in Viet Nam. I taught school in Naples and in Ft Lauderdale, then we returned to Bloomington IN. I taught briefly in IN, and then managed rental property for IU students. There I learned to say Go Hoosiers ! I am still a Gator at heart. Ron worked in development and in Real Estate as well as managing our rental property. We sold our rentals in Indiana, and decided to invest in Vacation Homes in Naples, so we could return to Naples where we both loved the beach, golf, fishing, and the weather. Here we have reconnected with family and friends from long ago. We also have enjoyed meeting our guests from all over the world. We love our Midwest guests, but we also love becoming friends with guests from other parts of the US, Europe, Canada, and South America. We feel very fortunate and blessed to be in a wonderful climate and city, doing work we enjoy, and making new friends along the way.

Myself, wife and 4 year old twins decided to come up to Naples week of Xmas (Dec 2017) and had an amazing week at Ducky 2. Kathy was extremely responsive with all relevant details and with questions we had before, during and after the visit. We decided to cook and grill in the kitchen/ outdoor grill quite a bit during the week and the well stocked variety of tableware, pots / pans and utensils was very much appreciated. The heated pool was outstanding – we probably spent a good 2-3 hours in the pool daily and the kids loved it. There are a variety of kids activities nearby such as the beautiful nearby beach, naples zoo and childrens museum. We found the North Naples area to be perfect – many nearby stores / supermarkets and restaurants and close to the beach. We also took the Trolley tour which you can pick up from the nearby Mercato shopping center to the downtown area. Home itself is very clean, cozy and peaceful. All the previous reviews were right on the money – you won’t go wrong staying here! The only depressing part was having to leave on the last day! We’re definitely planning to come back when we get another break!
