I have lived and worked in the SouthShore Area which includes Apollo Beach for nearly 20 years and have watched the growth and change.
Mirabay is a great coastal community where you have to show your Drivers License now to access the different areas. There are several gated waterfront communities and one of the larger subdivisions is Covington Park.
I guess what I am trying to say is I feel comfortable showing property in the area and have not encountered any problems.
You may wanted to look at gated communities if you feel uncomfortable.
Hope this helps. Feel free to contact me if you like.
