Beachwalk is a 24/7 manned gated community near the beach. 4 tennis courts, 2 pools and easy bike riding is a must in this quiet community. Watch the sun rise on your morning walk, and be sure to bike to the beach for the sunsets, while watching the locals play Bocci. Walk, bike or drive to world class shopping for groceries, apparel or a night at the movies. Quaint and upscale restaurants are just minutes away, as are top golf courses and marinas. If nature hiking is a must, the Everglades,the Conservancy, botanical gardens and other outdoor destinations are very nearby. North Naples is fast becoming the 'center' of Naples, and Beachwalk is right there, while still remaining quiet and restful. Our weather is the best in Florida to enjoy all year.
My parents purchased this property in 1987 pre-construction. Regretfully, they are gone, and we are the owners. So, it has been in the family for quite some time. Summers are times for re-do: new paint, new furniture, new bathrooms! The Beachwalk Assn. has installed cobblestones in the cul-de-sacs and our sidewalks...a very charming look. In addition, all exteriors have been painted. We enjoy travelling, cooking, golf, and of course family.

Across from Pelican Bay,our location is a 5 minute walk to Vanderbilt Beach, in the gated community of Beachwalk. We are near shopping, movie theater, tennis courts, pools and golf courses. The Ritz Carlton of Naples is our beach neighbor. As for music and theater, the Phiharmonic and Museum are a 5 minute drive away. 1.5 hours to Ft Lauderdale or Miami and 3.5 hours to Walt Disney World, Naples is 30 minutes from the Everglades, the 4th largest National Park in the USA. World class fishing and boating are just down the road. Swimming, biking, walking, golf and tennis are the favorites here, not to mention restaurants of every type and budget. Our year round weather is the best in Florida, due to the Gulf of Mexico warm waters. If shopping is your hobbie, we have world class shps just minutes from the condo. If you prefer bargain hunting, as I do, there are more than 25 resale shops throughout the city; charitable and for profit, upscale resale and flea market style.
Other Activities: Do not leave Naples without visiting the Everglades National Park. It is the 4th largest in the USA. I recommend the Shark Valley Train on US41, about 65 miles from the condo, but worth it! Not a shark, not a train but a wonderful glimpse into the Evergades and all of its creatures. A park ranger narrates your open air 2 hour bus ride. OR, if you prefer, you may bike or hike the same paths. Don't forget a hat, sunglasses and water. If you must ride an airboat, do so, but it is loud and unique. Perhaps everyone should do it once. Then have lunch in Everglades City...a fried grouper sandwich is a must...forget the calories.
Golf: Naples has the most number of golf holes per capita in the USA. Many are private clubs, but there are numerous public or semi-private courses, ie the large resort hotels: LaPlaya, Ritz Carlton at Tiburon, Naples Grande to name a few.
