New Rental


We are building a home in Fiddler's Creek that will be ready by February 1st. We would like to rent starting in February.   It is a DR Horton home in Chiasso.  We have owned and rented our condos in Pensacola, Florida and Palm Desert, Calif. for over 10 years with no issues and lots of return guests on VRBO.  We have sold both properties this last year and bought the new house in Naples in March. 

I can send pictures of both of our other properties so you can get a sense of the quality of furnishings.  The Pensacola condo listing number VRBO 76224 which you can see out there.  There are loads of pictures and reviews. (We closed in May, 2014)  I transferred this listing to the new owners when I sold the condo because we were very high on the list after so many years.  They bought the condo furnished.

I can send you a picture of some of the furnishing that we are going to move there in January but most of it is in storage as we have been purchasing along the way.

The home is 3 bedroom/ 3.5 bath with a study, covered pool.  It has 2583 under air and we have extended the patio out 6 feet.  The views are of a small lake and face west.  I can send you the construction pictures so you can see the views but it is only to the studs as of last weekend. 

We will be asking $5000 per month with a refundable security deposit of $500 which will hold the dates until December 1 when $5,000 is due and January 1 the remainder is due.  

Please let me know if you are interested.  

Thank you,

Farewell message from David Hebert

It has been my pleasure to serve the ladies and gentleman of Fiddlers Creek the past seven plus years. I fulfilled my duties to the best of my ability under the leadership, communication, tools and policies that were provided to me. I have accepted a position elsewhere and I look forward to that opportunity. Thank you for all the cards, well wishes and your generosity at Christmas time. It was much appreciated.

Special thanks to east gate officers Maylane Virella and Fermin Aguilar for the professional work ethic and pleasant atmosphere that they shared with me on a daily bases. The Fiddlers Creek Community is fortunate to have these two officers in their employ.

Best of luck and health to all,

Hello - I saw the following obituary and thought there might be many residents who remember this most gracious and charming lady from Cotton Green who moved to  Jacksonville several years ago to be by her son when Alzheimer's set in.  I hope you will print it but not necessary to show my name as they can get on the web sight for comments.
