Naples has many wonderful communities. From waterfront homes, carefree condos, maintenance free villas, golf course coach homes and custom homes, we have something for every lifestyle and budget.
You can buy a multimillion dollar beach home or a 2 bedroom 2 bath condo under $200,000, a short drive from the beach. Naples has great public beach parking unlike many other coastal beach towns so no matter where you live, you are never far from the beach. There is so much to do here that you will find something that suits you. Kayaking, fishing, shelling, tennis, pickle ball, golf, a great arts scene, book clubs, charities, restaurants, shopping, bird watching, great libraries, international film festival, musical performance groups, continuing education programs....the list is endless!

Check out and other sites on crime rates, as well as talk to the police departments in the areas you are considering. Drive by the area you are interested in (at different times of the day).
As realtors, we are not supposed to comment on the safety of any particular area.
