The beauty of retirement is that you can choose your adventure. For some, that means exploring new places until you land on one that feels just right. Others embark on a whole new career. Cynthia and Mark Bordash did both. The couple, our newest owners at Naples Motorcoach Resort, started talking about growing and selling Christmas trees in the late ‘90s, and took the leap while still working in their respective careers and while their kids were in school.
A country club with one hundred of your closest friends — that’s the lifestyle Jon Sevel and his fiancé Cortney Bluefeld were looking for when a good friend referred them to Naples Motorcoach Resort.
“My dear friend Dana Salkeld came to visit me when I was staying at a resort up near Orlando and told me that he just bought a place in Naples and that I had to see this place,” Jon says.
He and Cortney stayed for just two weeks before they were sold and became owners. The resort was exactly what they were looking for, “a high-end resort from top to bottom with all the amenities,” as Jon describes it.
The couple were blown away by how friendly and welcoming everyone was to them when they first arrived, and since, they’ve made many lifelong friends. Jon, now hooked on pickleball, spends his days on the court, while Cortney enjoys relaxing by the pool or riding her bike around and saying hello to friends.
“It truly is a lifestyle that we love,” Jon says. “It takes me an hour to walk my dogs because I end up stopping and chatting with people all around the resort! I think my dogs get annoyed with me.”
Even when they’re not vacationing in Naples, the couple show their loyalty to the resort on their license plate, “NMCR131”.
