“Charming cottage”
Reviewed 29 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Had a wonderful stay. The place was quiet and private. Many outdoor features including the use of a chiminea for a night time fire and a large terrace by the canal for enjoying a hot beverage or glass of wine. Convenient drive to 5th avenue and the beaches. Each morning we enjoyed our morning coffee outside overlooking the canal.

“The Charming Bungalow is Very Charming Indeed”
Reviewed 23 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017
1
person found this review helpful

The Charming Bungalow is filled with lovely works of art and designed with many nicely judged moments. The grounds give the illusion of remote tropical isolation, but in reality you are right down the road from upscale dinning and shopping of 5th Avenue. Except for the faint hum of traffic, you could easily imagine yourself in the heart of a tropical forest in old Florida. Karen, the owner, could not have been friendlier or more helpful. She has thought of everything to make the property comfortable. We had a great time here.

Thanks so much for your great review. I really enjoying hosting both of you and getting to know you better. I really loved your enthusiasm and appreciation for the Charming Bungalow, which made me very happy. Eating stone crabs on the veranda by candlelight was an extra perk shared with you. Hope to see you again and wishing you the best in 2017!

Teena, Your parents are the sweetest people ever and I understand why you wanted to make things special for them. They were very pleasant and communicative and I would be happy to host them again.
Thanks, Karen

Thank you for the wonderful review. I enjoyed hosting you. The slightly occasional smell is when the tide is very low and only in the Summer. It dissipates as the tide rises. So, new moon and full moon, at extreme Summer low tides, this can happen. It's the tropics and the canals are brackish water (mix of salt and fresh). The area is one of the hottest redevelopment areas in Naples now and I am enjoying the rewards of it. Soon, a developing microwbrewery, food park will be a short walk from the Charming Bungalow. A Montessori School is being built on the main street leading here. I love the non gentrification of the area and the crime rate is practically 0, since there has been so much focus on it. So close to downtown Naples, it is now being discovered and the prices are really rising in real estate. Thanks, again...glad you could appreciate all that the Charming Bungalow is.

“The best lodging I have been to!”
Reviewed 11 April 2016 for a stay in January 2016

I travel quite a lot, and usually use AirB&B type of booking sites to book accommodation. Based on my experience, this was absolutely the best place I have been to!

The Charming Bungalow was exactly as advertised - and even beyond! The bungalow itself is really beautiful and peaceful. Karen has thought of everything a traveler could need! The bungalow has a large outdoor area with sofas and a dining table, as well as a smaller patio by the canal. The bungalow feels like a detatched building, even though it's not.

We took advantage of both the cayaks and the bicycles that Karen provides for her quest for free. We paddled slowly to the bay in about 1 hour and another one back, and saw many different kinds of birds on the way. Riding a bike to the city and the pier took about 20 minutes, and we went there twice to watch the sunset.

Communication with Karen was good, she responds to messages really fast and she gave us really good advice about the neighbourhood whenever we bumped into her at the house.

I truly recommend this bungalow for anyone who appreciates peace and quiet, but not want to be too far away from the city.

“The Charming Bungalow was beyond our expectations!”
Reviewed 11 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Upon arriving, we took numerous photos of the artful decorations and layout of the Charming Bungalow and adjacent areas. A passing kayaker shared our opinion, "We have our own piece of private paradise for the week. The bungalow was equipped with everything we needed to enjoy our stay in Naples. Karen was very helpful introducing us to the East Naples and surrounding area; giving us ideas for biking, fishing and shopping.
