On the Florida Gulf Coast, Beautiful Naples is the Setting for Heritage Bay, a Gated Golf and Tennis Community with a Wide Range of Homes Styles and Prices
Beautiful, affluent Naples is a sun-drenched coastal town with a resort ambiance and is located on Florida's southwestern coast. Known for its shopping, dining, golf and sugar white beaches, it is also the location of stylish Heritage Bay, a gated golf and tennis community that is popular with baby boomers. Mediterranean-style single family homes, coach homes and condominiums are available.
The condominiums come in two styles, both with single floor living. Units in the four-story buildings have a lanai, a carport and range in size from approximately 1,885 square feet to 2,100 square feet. They also have elevator access. Condominiums in the two-story buildings have shared lanais, a carport and approximately 1,415 square feet to 1,660 square feet.
The coach homes range from 1,888 square feet to 2,100 square feet and have a lake view. Some are on the second floor, while others are on the first floor.
The largest properties in Heritage Bay are the estate single family homes. These range in size from approximately 2,400 square feet to 3,800 square feet and have an attached three-car garage.
Prices start in the high-$100,000s and top out in the $700,000s. Please verify this with a Realtor as prices are bound to change.
Heritage Bay has three 9-hole golf courses for a total of 27 holes. The courses, The Pine, The Cypress and The Oak, were designed by Jay Azinger and Gordon Lewis and are a prime reason that people retire here. Every homeowner automatically becomes a golf club member. No equity, deposits or dues are required.
The 27,000 square foot clubhouse is a welcoming place with a library, a billiards room, a state of the art fitness center, casual and formal dining options and a tantalizing swimming pool (five more pools are located throughout the community). The Heritage Bay Spa offers holistic health treatments. Social events are many. Residents enjoy lakes and walking trails throughout the development. The tennis culture is deeply ingrained, too, with seven Har Tru courts always ready for play.
Outside of the community's guarded gates, Naples' downtown boasts brick streets lined by high-end boutique shops and other retailers. 5th Avenue South and 3rd Street South are particularly fashionable. Gallery Row appeals to upscale antique hunters, while several open-air shopping districts along Naples Bay are perfect for fine dining, shopping and strolling.
Naples' 10 mile long beach is clean and popular. It has been voted one of America's best beaches and has several named stretches of sand, including Vanderbilt Beach and North Gulfshore Boulevard Beach. Most of these beaches are lined by tall condominiums, but pretty Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Recreation Area, located on a barrier island, is free of commercial development.
NCH Healthcare System has two hospitals in Naples. Both are accredited by the Joint Commission and are award-winning year after year.
Summer high temperatures usually top out in the mid-90s. Winter temperature highs are in the 60s and 70s with lows in the 50s. On average, the area receives 50 inches of rain per year.

Named Pascua Florida by Juan Ponce De Leon, the Sunshine State did not enter the Union until March 3, 1845. Balmy mild winters began attracting "snowbirds" to the state in the late 19th century, and retirees continue to flock to the state today. It's not hard to see why tourism has become Florida's leading industry.
International trade and citrus are also major contributors to the state's economy. Eighty percent of the nation's oranges and grapefruits are grown here, and 40 percent of all U.S. exports to Latin America flow through Florida.
Florida's landscape includes uplands and coastal plains. It contains more than 11,000 miles of waterways and about 4,500 islands.
Florida also has 1,045 golf courses, more than any other state in the Union. The 47 mile Pinellas Trail is the longest urban trail on the east coast. Orlando theme parks attract more visitors than any other theme parks in the U.S. The only place in the world where alligators and crocodiles co-exist is in National Everglades Park.

Why Would Someone Age 55+ Retire in an All Ages Development?
While communities designed for people age 55 or better have a lot of benefits, not everyone wants to retire in a development where most of the residents are the same age and often of the same socioeconomic background. All ages community by law cannot discriminate based on age so they nearly always have a wide range of residents, from families and single professionals to empty nesters and often retirees. Many older all ages neighborhoods are organic, that is having grown over time and never having been "master planned." These usually do not have amenities such as a pool, tennis courts, etc. But more and more new all ages communities are master planned, gated, with covenants and HOA fees. Retirees often prefer these to 55+ communities because they allow more interaction with people from more cross sections of the country.
