this is a hard question for depends where you want to live and like . I could show you a great deal north of naples but you may hate the area. May I suggest you come down here in the summer time when rates are less, rent for a few weeks and drive around the areas. For example, I love Longboat Key vs. Naples it has everything but you may like naples, or north port, or fort meyers, etc.... The area you are talking about is like saying I lke to live in California could you tell me where. Do some research and see what works for you.
Feel free to visit my website through it in my community links you can get information about our great area,

You really need to visit some of the areas. I love Punta Gorda. It is 3 hours to the North of Miami and South of Orlando. I do love Punta Gorda. We have easy access to boating, fishing, beaches, performing arts, kayaking, wilderness adventures, parks, museums and plenty of things to do.Good restaurants and bars and Thursday evenings are special. Or it could be as relaxed as you want it to be.
Punta Gorda was features in US Weekly as one of the best places to Retire to, and money magazine rated us as one of the best places to live. Again you need to visit. See my blog for more information on Charlotte County or visit our website at http://www.puntagordarealty.com
Let me know if I could help you in your search in any way. All of us Realtors are partial to our areas.
Good luck in your search.
I have found that looking for an 'area' requires the personal touch, meaning that you should personally visit all possible areas BEFORE considering the type of property. Choose your area first, then determine your property criteria before you begin searching. If you do your work and choose Naples as your area of choice, when you are ready to search for properties, you can search the Naples MLS directly, yourself, using my website. Should you find a property of interest, I will be happy to arrange a private showing.

Your price range would really help us answer your question. I love Cape Coral, and you canâ€™t beat the Gulf access prices we have now. I would be happy to provide you information on the area, and available properties.
Best of luck,

To be honest the biggest unknow is your price range. I am a avid boater and fisherman and love the Bonita area due to the Estero Bay, wildlife, proximity to shopping/activities, etc... If you can give me some more of your home criteria I can better suggest the place we need to start looking. I have had some great sucess in the PGI area with nice homes under 250k with direct access. Stay warm and give me a call when you get a chance.

As some of the other agents have answered, the price range along the coast is quite large, depending on the average temperatures in the winter, proximity to amenities and population. Each area has its advantages and disadvantages, depending upon your criteria, so, there is no easy answer. I am pretty familiar with waterfront all along the entire coast, so let me know if I can help give you the pros and cons of each area.
