Probably more of a geography decision in our view as the community is half way between Naples and Marco Island. We can help guide if you will contact us direct. http://www.naplesrealestateguys.com/

Ole resembles urban, high density living. There are a lot of buildings and concrete, lacks green space.

Urban living, if you like that type of thing.
A fantastic set of community amenities - resort pool, cafe, state of the art fitness center, movie theatre and more.
New or new construction with more recent building codes.

Urban living, if you don't like that type of thing.
It borders a busy six lane highway. It is not a problem for all the condos, but a number of them will definitely have traffic noise.
You have to really buy into what the community offers for the money, as it is a distance from the main Naples destination areas. It is 20 minutes to Olde Naples, which is basically the southern end of all the major Naples destination spots - shopping, dining, beaches, the arts, etc. It is another 20 minutes to the northern end of those main destination spots. If you like visiting those spots, you will tire of driving north. If that is not important, than it is not a Con.

Ole is a very nice community with a lot of great activities and it is located in Lely. Yes, you are twenty minutes to downtown but that isn't bad at all. You are 35 minutes from the Ft. Myers airport. Ole is fine as long as you purchase away from Collier Blvd. There is a fair amount of traffic noise. There are units close to Collier Blvd and some further away. Lely is a very nice community - I live five minutes from there. There are other areas of Lely you shoud look at as well. If I can help, just let me know,

Lots of Pro's.....great community with good amenities.....the main negative is location. It is just far away from everything. If you would like some help navigating the area let me know....we would love to help.

Pros are Ole is like a small community with its own movie theatre and restaurants, it is in Lely which has 4 golf courses, 2 public and 2 private if you like to golf, assoc. fees are reasonable compared to other similar communities. Only negative to me is that if you are a beach person or a boater, it is inland and about 20 minutes to the closest beach.
