Created amongst 22 lakes and sweeping open water views, the 688-acre community created by developer iStar emphasizes lakefront living with Southern Coastal-inspired homes and amenities along the water’s edge. Lakes provide prime opportunities for kayaking, canoeing and paddleboarding, and scenic vistas. The community’s centerpiece 125-acre Eagle Lake features a large tiki hut on destination Kontiki Island and also offers a mile-long stretch of lakefront nestled against the Picayune Strand State Forest, a 76,000-acre state park with protected pinelands, cypress swamps, marshes and abundant wildlife.
The Island Club offers an expansive, resort-style, zero-entry pool with a tropical waterfall and dedicated lap lanes, along with nearby bocce ball courts and a white-sand beach for lounging.
Indoor and alfresco gathering areas at the Island Club include a lakeside fire pit and casual beverage and dining options at the Chat ‘n Chill Tiki Bar and Latitudes Cafe.
At the Outrigger Center, canoes, kayaks and paddleboards are available for resident use, as well as a flex-space available for game days, special events and other activities. Cruises on the community’s two Duffy electric boats depart from the center’s floating docks for residents to explore Eagle Lake and Kontiki Island.
Residents can also enjoy the lakefront Match Point complex that offers five tennis and four pickleball courts. And nearby, the Walk & Wag dog park offers four-legged friends a place to play.
An additional dog park, Paws Awhile, is planned, as well as the Kid’s Cove playground and picnic area and a meandering linear park for biking, hiking and jogging. Navigating a loop road circling Naples Reserve, the park is designed to engage residents with their natural environment and provide an alternative mode of transportation throughout the community.
Naples Reserve residents receive complimentary one-year social memberships at Walker’s Hideaway Marina of Naples, a yacht club along the Gordon River offering a marina, indoor storage for 600 boats, two waterside restaurants, outdoor pool and sauna, and access to Naples Bay.
Visit the community at 14885 Naples Reserve Circle, located off U.S. 41, 2 miles southeast of the Collier Boulevard/CR 951 intersection and 10 minutes from I-75, Exit 101, or online at www.naplesreserve.com.
