We live in Naples and keep our sailboat on Marco Island. We are very happy here and live here year around. You are going to have a hard time finding a house here where you can keep your boat in the back yard, with in your budget
, but if you don't mind a 10 minute drive to your boat then this could be a great place for you. Marco Island has slips in floating dock
Marina's for $350.00 mo or so. I love Naples, as it is very beutiful, and despite what some think, friendly. The realestate here is starting climb in value so I would also recomend visiting during the summer when the best values can be found. During the winter (In Season) there seems to be almost a feeding frenzy mentality that any reasonably priced house or condo is sold quickly.
