If you love boating, you'll adore Royal Harbor! For many of the residents of this Naples-area community, boating is what they love best about living here. That's not surprising since every one of the 400 single-family homes in Royal Harbor has no-bridge access to Naples Bay—and to the Gulf of Mexico.
Whether you want to take a short trip across to downtown Naples for cocktails; enjoy a slow cruise on Naples Bay, or head out into the Gulf of Mexico to watch (yet another!) spectacular sunrise—it’s all within your reach from Royal Harbor. If you want to have dinner in downtown Naples you don’t have to drive. You can simply cruise across the Bay and tie up at one of the many waterfront restaurants!
Of course, there are other ways to get around. If you enjoy cycling, you're only a mile and a half bike ride away from downtown Naples. And whether you sail, motor, or ride, you're not far from Tin City—the most visited part of Naples, where you can peruse a wide variety of small, local shops.
Homeowners in Royal Harbor can also avail themselves of the amenities at the Naples Bay Resort that includes one of the most spectacular pool complexes you’ll find anywhere. Chose from a waterfall pool, a “lazy river” float, or an adults-only pool that features private cabanas. There’s something for everyone here.
The Naples Botanical Garden is also nearby—offering a wide array of flora and fauna that delight the senses. In addition to the natural beauty the Garden affords, there are frequent events that take place in these incredible surroundings.
Royal Harbor was actually carved out of a low-lying mangrove peninsula on the upper eastern edge of Naples Bay. Some homes in the area offer a great view of the nearby Mangrove Preserve.
Many of the original homes from the 1960s and 1970s still remain in the area—although a number of them (particularly those along the Bay itself) have replaced with newer, larger homes.
If you live in one of those original homes (or are thinking about a move to Royal Harbor), you may want to think about updating a home to make it more comfortable and convenient—a kind of “home base” from which you can explore all the opportunities around you.
Whether it’s a kitchen remodeling project like the kitchen in Gulf Shore we remodeled recently, or the Gulf Shore Master Bathroom we created recently, or an entertainment center like you see pictured here, we can help you turn your Royal Harbor home (of future home) into a place you may never want to leave—unless, of course, the Gulf calls you out for another look at a fabulous sunset!
