Where To Obtain Moorings Naples Community Information

There is a golfing community called Moorings which is in Naples. It is at a location that makes it very popular. It is very close to the Gulf of Mexico, as well as a waterway that you can use to do boating. Part of the property is adjacent to the sandy beaches and is only a five-minute drive from the downtown area. It is preferable for some people because it is one of the few golf courses that are so close to the city. Many reasons are particular golf community is popular, and there are ways of finding community information about this resort here or in this reliable real estate site.

Overview Of Moorings

Mooring is a unique place with a single 18-hole golf course. It was opened back in 1962. This was at a time where you could get a property that was close to the Gulf of Mexico for a very reasonable cost. Over time, they have added quite a few homes. There are condominiums and single-family homes that are available. It is also a very reasonable golf community to be a part of. That is because it has one golf course, and is one of the older ones in the Naples area.

Overview Of The Golf Course At Moorings

One thing that will distinguish this golf course among all of the others is that it’s much shorter. This means you will be able to walk the course with no problem. It also makes it possible to play your 18 holes for the day, and do so in a shorter period. Despite the fact it is shorter, that does not mean that it is any less difficult than some of the modern ones that have been created. It has many advantages such as using the natural environment throughout the course which will include manicured greens, oak trees, freshwater lakes, and flowering marshes.

Why Would You Want To Buy A Home Here?

You should consider buying a home here for several reasons. First of all, it’s proximity to the Gulf of Mexico. It’s hard to find a place that has such affordable homes that will give you a literal view of the Gulf. Second, it is very affordable by comparison to many of the competing golf communities. The ones that are closer to the water are going to be more expensive. However, you can get in for less than $100,000. That does not mean that the homes are not expensive. Some of the more expensive ones can cost upwards of $6 million. Finally, you should consider this resort because of how close it is to the city. You get access to the Coastland Mall, gourmet restaurants, and The Village on Venetian Bay and other shopping centers. There are so many things that you can do in Naples, but at the other resorts, you may find yourself spending more time at that location.

Will This Be A Good Investment?

Although this is an older facility, it does have some new homes. Even the older ones are going to appreciate in value. You have to consider the location of this community. Not only are you close to the coast, but you were also close to the city. Even though you are, however, you are not going to notice because of how well designed and manicured everything is. It will be as if you had stepped into a beautiful region of Florida before they started building homes, yet it will be so close to these urban areas.

If you would like to consider investing in a home or condominium at Moorings, you should speak with a realtor that will know exactly what is available right now. They can give you some ideas, but you have to tell them how much you are willing to spend, and the size of the home or condo you are looking to invest in. They can also give you comps on recent sales to show you that you are getting a good deal. If you are working with a realtor that specializes in selling golf community homes, they will be experts at helping you get into the exact house in Moorings that you will want to buy.

Florida summers. Yes, they are warm, no doubt, but like most places, Florida summers are laid-back, slower paced and relaxed. People are more inclined to take it easy while kids laugh, play and eat watermelon.

Have you ever noticed that summer has a certain scent? It’s clean, and hot – almost steamy, grassy and earthy. It has to do with the humidity and freshly cut grass and leaves, a kind of Florida “jungle smell”. And let’s not forget the sweet floral smells of jasmine and magnolia flowers. Or, my personal favorite, the salty smell of low tide.

There’s also a certain color to summer. I see pastel-colored Hibiscus, Crape Myrtles and Oleanders. I see vibrant Bougainvilleas, majestic red, yellow and orange Poincianas, Frangipanis in tropical tones and delicate, bright purple Jacarandas. At sunset I see many of the same colors in the clouds and sky before it fades to lavender then gray then blue and black. And when I venture out after dark I see Night Blooming Cereus (see picture) dangling from spindly cactus crawling up Florida’s Sabal Palms.

What I love the most about summer is the daily rainstorm that quenches the flora’s thirst and cools the earth with heavy downpours. Watching a summer rain roll in from a screened-in porch is one of the greatest joys of Florida living.

Even smelling rain on its way, or feeling an incoming cool summer breeze as the rains begin is a classic authentic Florida moment.  As the dark menacing clouds approach, the booming sound of thunder and fantastic displays of lightning entertain us more than any motion picture – and it’s live and free.

No matter how you spend your summer, or where, it’s your time to find yourself where the living is easy. Tell me what you love most about your summer.  I’d love to hear from you.


Growing up, our home was on an island just across the street from the Gulf of Mexico. (Yep, I know, lucky me.)

During my adolescence, we lived in a run-down pink cypress rental cottage. Every evening we watched the sunset, ate dinner and listened to the waves gently wash onto the beach.

As an island kid I was always playing outside. And as kids often do, I would get a scrape or a cut or a bruise, maybe poison ivy, or a bee sting. Even when I came down with a cold, my mother always said:

“Go jump in the Gulf and it will be fine.”

Simple as that.

And I knew that at a young age, if I had any ailment, I needed to go for a swim. Immerse myself in salt water, and everything would go away. And it did.

Saltwater, or saline, has been a home remedy for many things, and is widely used in health care. I’m no doctor, but I’ve seen the results. Sore throats, sinus infections, head colds, tooth aches are just a few of the common ailments that can be soothed with saltwater.

But does this saltwater therapy really work? I’ve heard that salt draws moisture from bacteria and any swollen tissues – thus relieving inflammation. It not only destroys bacteria, it prevents it from growing.

And saltwater is also nourishment for the soul. A simple morning swim is not only great exercise, but it revitalizes and energizes our core being. Or even the simple practice of floating in the water can deepen relaxation. Head partially immersed, arms out stretched makes me let “it all go”, one moment at a time, without a care to the world.

Just being near the water can be therapeutic. Like many Floridians, I find that going to the beach is like meditation. Gazing at the water while sitting in my beach chair, walking by the water’s edge, or just doing “nothing” centers me. I call it Florida’s “chicken soup for the soul”.

There’s no doubt in my mind, that since the Florida peninsula is surrounded by saltwater, we have a lot of healing potential. No matter where in this state you live, you are within a couple of hours of salt water.

Florida really does seem to have it all. So just jump right in! You’ll feel so much better.

At least that’s what mom says.
