My bf and I just bought a two-bedroom single family home in beautiful Naples, FL, last May. It has a huge front and backyard, very well built and kept, is only an 8-minute drive from some of the country's best beaches and the price was dirt cheap. It was always a dream of ours to have a vacation home in sunny FL and now our dream has come true.
For the price we paid for our house in Naples we couldn't have afforded even a shack in one of the worst neighborhoods where we live full time all year round, in metropolitan Washington, D.C.
Yes, you're right. Naples is very quiet and gay life is non-existant. Although we never make it a secret we're an actual couple, when we go there on vacation we do it for the beautiful beaches, the scenery, the peace and quiet, the dolphins, manatees, ospreys and all the other wildlife we encounter daily. Oh, and we're blessed to have a super progressive 80-something y.o. straight lady neighbor right next door to us who keeps an eye on the property when we're out of town. Everyone in Naples seems to be genuinely friendly. Please let me know if you want me to hook you up with our cool realtor down there.
