Naples, Fl – Why Buyers Like The Dunes of Vanderbilt Beach?

The Dunes has so much to offer both part time and full time residents – great location, outstanding amenities, pet friendly, some spectacular views and a wide price range. The community is secure with a manned gate. In addition to the high rise condo buildings, there are villa/coach home style residences so you  have your choice of lifestyle. Different buildings have different rental policies but all offer the ability to rent while you are not occupying to cover your carrying costs if you are a part time resident. That said, you will never have the feeling of too many seasonal short term renters. The amenities are amazing with an indoor/outdoor restaurant, casual and fine dining, resort pool, tiki bar, top of the line fitness center, wellness center and staffed tennis facilities. A multi-million dollar renovation to the clubhouse and amenity center was recently completed. It all adds up to great value and a 5 star resort lifestyle.

The location of The Dunes is one of the things that makes it popular. Right around the corner is the entrance to Delnor-Wiggins State Beach Park and the north end of Vanderbilt Beach. The north Naples area has everything you could possibly want or need within minutes including Mercato for restaurants, nightlife, shops, Whole Foods, movie theater and more. Also nearby are beachfront restaurants as close to the sand as you can possibly get and a casual waterfront restaurant on the bay side of Vanderbilt Lagoon. House guest overflow? The onsite guest cottages can accommodate your family or visitors on the property. Also,  you are minutes from LaPlaya and the Ritz Carlton (both are beachfront hotels) and the Inn at Pelican Bay. You really do have it all in this location to live a fabulous Florida lifestyle.

Friendly, social and active describes the atmosphere at The Dunes. Some people wouldn’t expect a development that is largely high rise condos to be described this way but, the relaxed “vibe”  is real and people are brought together in and around the amazing amenities. You will get to know your neighbors, join them socially, see them at the fitness center or tennis courts, go for morning walks or chat as you take your dog outside. Pet friendly is important in Naples and The Dunes has a liberal policy.

Currently, the price range for properties on the market for sale is between $650,000 and $1,800,000. Prices are going to vary depending on the building, square footage, age and the view. At the lower end of the spectrum will be units in one of the earlier buildings on a lower level. At the top of the price range are going to be spacious and luxurious condos with panoramic views of the Gulf of Mexico enjoying tropical sunsets every day.
