Welcome to Gulf Waters Home Watch, currently servicing Estero, Bonita Springs, North Naples and S. Fort Myers

Hiring a home watch company can offer several significant benefits, particularly for homeowners who travel frequently, have a second home, or are away for extended periods.  Gulf Waters Home Watch offers a wide range of services for our clients:

  1. Interior and Exterior Inspections: Regular inspections of the interior and exterior of the home to check for signs of damage, maintenance issues, or security concerns.

  2. Security Checks: Ensuring that doors, windows, and other entry points are secure, and that the property is not vulnerable to break-ins or trespassing.

  3. Environmental Monitoring: Checking for signs of water intrusion, mold growth, pest infestation, or other environmental hazards that could affect the property.

  4. Mail and Package Collection: Collecting mail, packages, newspapers, and other deliveries to prevent the accumulation of mail and deter potential burglars.

  5. Utility and Appliance Check: Verifying that utilities are functioning correctly, checking for plumbing leaks, HVAC issues, and ensuring that appliances are in working order.

  6. Storm Protection: Providing storm protection services, such as securing outdoor furniture, installing hurricane shutters, or arranging for storm debris cleanup.

  7. Emergency Response: Acting as a point of contact for emergencies, coordinating repairs or maintenance, and responding promptly to any issues that arise during inspections.

  8. Preventive Maintenance: Regular inspections can help identify maintenance issues early, allowing homeowners to address them promptly before they escalate into mor significant problems.

Homeowners are aware of all the things that can go wrong, especially when you are not in town.  With second homes, it is even more important to have a local representative with "eyes on your home". This will give you security and peace of mind.

Things can go wrong when a home is not occupied: Such as: Pipes broken, toilets overflowing or not working properly, pools needing attention (pump broken, chemicals, needing water), storm damage, AC not working, doors left unlocked or open, vandalism, water damage, roof damage, etc. 

Our services are tailored to the unique needs of homeowners in the area, particularly those who own second homes or investment properties.  By hiring Gulf Waters Home Watch, you can have peace of mind knowing that your property is cared for in your absence.

Some Insurance policies for vacant or seasonal homes may require regular inspections to maintain coverage.  Hiring a home watch service can help homeowners meet these requirements and avoid potential coverage issues.


Overall, hiring a home watch service can help homeowners protect their investment, maintain their property, and enjoy peace of mind knowing that their home is being cared for in their absence.

At Gulf Waters Home Watch, we are committed to providing exceptional care and protection for our clients’ homes, treating each as if it were our own.  We strive to maintain open communications, and always ensuring that our clients are always well informed about the status of their property.

We offer many options to assist you, when you are in need of assistance.  Special Services include accepting deliveries, furniture delivery and set up, alarm emergencies, TV and Internet appointments, contractor access and supervision, housekeeping appointments, handyman services and utility company appointments.

(Don't let a water leak cause mold to get out of control.  A small leak left undetected, spreads quickly and can cause costly damage to your home as well as serious health issue.)
