Our home

We own a modern, comfortable, and (we think) beautiful 2-story home, built in 2003. The house has stucco walls outside, a ceramic tile roof, and ceramic tile and carpet flooring indoors. The ceilings are high and there are lots of windows, which gives the house a very bright and open feel. The house has a three-car garage and a spacious driveway with a basketball hoop. We have 2 children (boy, 10 and girl, 4) so we have lots of toys. We have a pool with a sundeck and a nice patio which looks out over a lake. There's a canoe for use on the lake. Downstairs we have a formal living room, dining room, open kitchen adjoining the family room (where the TV is). The family room has a sliding glass door which opens up to the patio and pool area. The patio is enclosed with a screen against mosquitoes, which makes it wonderful for sitting outside during warm evenings. The patio is also hooked up to the stereo so music can be played outdoors. Downstairs there's also a laundry room, full bathroom and a spare bedroom/playroom. Upstairs in the master suite is a large bedroom with adjoining workout area, a bathroom with dual sinks, and a deep, walk-in closet. There's a boy's bedroom (which can sleep up to 3) and a girl's bedroom; a full bathroom; and a large playroom with TV/VCR, PS2, stereo, computer, foosball table and lots of games. The playroom is located directly over the garage. Bikes are available and we have a Dodge Durango SUV available for your use.

Who we are

  1. We are Tim (43) and Ichele (40) Watson. Tim works in the Trust department of a large, regional bank and Ichele works part-time as a substitute teacher in the local school district. Ichele is originally from The Netherlands. We have a 10 year old son, who is a big sports player and fan, a 4 year old daughter who loves everything and everyone, and a sweet and happy 2 year old Golden Retriever named Skyla. We can make alternate arrangements for the dog, unless you'd like to include her in the home exchange package of course.
    We love to relax as a family and go to the beach, the movies, to the zoo, out to dinner, get together with friends, go to sports games, etc.
    We enjoy going back to Holland to see family and friends, as well as traveling to other countries and destinations in the U.S. We love to snow-ski as well, so maybe we can exchange your home in a great skiing area during your cold winter for our home in warm and sunny florida???

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Naples, Florida is a beautiful town in SouthWest Florida, right on the beach. We are about 8 miles (10 km) away from the beaches. It's mostly warm/hot and sunny here with average summer temperatures in the upper 80s/lower 90s (30-38C), and wintertime temps in the 70s/80s (22-28C). The beaches and the wildlife are beautiful here. There's plenty of opportunity for boating, canoeing, swimming, diving, golf, tennis. There are also plenty of cultural options in Naples. There are theaters, art galleries, the famous Philharmonic Orchestra, as well as excellent restaurants. This is an ideal place for both adults and children.

We live in a very nice, safe family neighborhood with lots of kids where the kids can freely play outside. From our house you can walk in 3 minutes to our neigborhood's clubhouse (with pool and work-out facility), tennis courts,and basketball courts. Within 20 minutes driving you are at some of the most beautiful beaches in America, as well as excellent shopping and dining. Naples is truly a beautiful city (
