Welcome to our condominium in Laurel Oaks, a property set in tropical surroundings of two-story, garden- style buildings. A large central lake serves as a focus for the heated pool and clubhouse, a short walk from our first floor condo.

We enjoy relaxing on our lanai, which overlooks a garden with complete privacy. We also enjoy the front lanai with its double French doors off the kitchen eating area. A lush cascade of Bougainvillea covers the lanai screens and gives us privacy from the front parking areas.

Our property is located in the heart of award-winning Pelican Bay, on the north end of Naples,with a mix of stately homes, other beautiful condominium properties, walking-jogging paths, and golf courses. Bring your golf clubs and play one of the many courses in the greater Naples area.

Now for the beach. We are a 7-minute bike ride to the 3-mile beach, for the exclusive use of Pelican Bay residents and their guests. Take the 5-minute tram past the mangroves, view the egrets and cormorants, and arrive at the powder white sands of the Gulf of Mexico. Change in the locker rooms, go for a swim, relax on one of the available blue beach chairs under a large blue umbrella, and have lunch or dinner at the restaurant. Sign up for a round of tennis at the private HAR-TRU courts nearby, go canoing in the mangroves, or use one of the sailboats available for members on the beach.

Sometimes we drive a few miles south along the shore into downtown Naples to explore the antique shops, art galleries, and clothing stores. Lunch in one of the outdoor cafes and restaurants is always a treat.

We always look forward to returning to Laurel Oaks, where we enjoy the tranquility of the grounds, go for a quick swim in the pool before dinner, or chat with good neighbors.
