Old Naples Real Estate

Welcome to Old Naples

Naples Central For Everything Luxury

From the beautiful beaches, to shopping and restaurants on Third Street South or Fifth Avenue South, Old Naples is a highly desired luxury Naples neighborhood in Downtown Naples.  Sought out by many because of it's central location and walkable landscape, people can always be found walking, biking, grabbing a coffee or coming back from lunch.  Old Naples early history gives way for mature landscaping, beautiful lots and homes and classic Naples estates.

What Makes Old Naples Stand Out

  • Exceptional architecture which has something for every taste.  With historic beach cottages dating back to the early 1900’s, quaint condos, to the very best in local designed homes.

  • Pristine white beaches renowned for their cleanliness and natural beauty steal the show as scenic Gulf of Mexico sunsets aren’t obstructed by hi-rise condo buildings.  Voted the best all-around beach in America by the Travel Channel, Old Naples’ fabulous 1.75 mile long stretch of beach has 20 public access points for your convenience.

  • A world-class retail and dining experience.  With boutique clothing stores, exquisite gift shops, superb restaurants and art galleries, you won’t be short of entertainment between Fifth Avenue South and Third Street South.  Living in Old Naples, a short walk or scenic bike ride will take you through the beautifully landscaped homes of Old Naples.

  • Naples was ranked No. 1 Small Arts Town in America by John Villani in his book ‘100 Best Art Towns in America’.  From regular exhibitions to art stores and galleries, if you love art, you’ll love living close to all the action in downtown Naples. To know historical facts about Old Naples visit this blog post.

  • Easily Walkable. Unlike some neighborhoods that seem to sprawl on forever, Old Naples is a fairly compact neighborhood that is easy to get around on foot or bicycle.  In just a few minutes, you can stroll to the beach, walk to the downtown Naples action or pick up a game of tennis at the Arthur L. Allen Tennis Center.  You will never be far from the amenities you need.

Dining, Entertainment and Shopping

Naples’ Old Naples neighborhood is famous for its incredible dining and retail experiences, with exceptional stores and eateries. If you are a foodie, highlights on Third Street South include the fabulous Tommy Bahama, Campiello, Jane’s Garden Café and The BevyFifth Avenue South keeps the standard equally high, with award winning chefs and incredible dining experiences. There are options for every taste, but highlights include The French, Ocean Prime and Bar Tulia. If you adventure a bit further, there are many dining options at Crayton Cove, where Blue Provence, The Dock at Crayton Grove and The Boathouse on Naples Bay all have something unique to make your evening a special one.

Similar to downtown Naples dining, shopping at both Third Street South and Fifth Avenue South are equally impressive. Walking along both downtown streets, you will be drawn to unique boutiques, cute gift shops and more. And while you venture, there are plenty of pick-me-up local options we recommend trying; 5th Avenue Coffee Company, Bad Ass Coffee of Hawaii, Divine Naples Coffee and Wine, and The Brick Coffee Bar all get my business frequently.

The arts are well represented in Naples with a variety of venues, including The Naples Players, who deliver both indoor and outdoor events, and The Gulfshore Playhouse, which includes plans for an exciting new theatre. A wealth of galleries are found throughout Old Naples too, including 5th Avenue Art Galleries, Naples Art, 3rd Street South Art and the Naples Art District.

Old Naples is still growing too, aside from the new playhouse construction, there are also plans for constructing the Old Naples Hotel in the 3rd Street South neighborhood and redevelopment of the Naples Beach Club on the North end of Old Naples.
