Antilles’ triple-treat attractions draw buyers

Location, style, and amenities form its winning strategy



Antilles’ serene location is key to its ability to offer a year-round resort lifestyle. No street noises interfere with its peaceful ambiance. No neighboring high-rises crowd out the views. Even during the height of season, is set back at the far end of a long approach affording Antilles endless hours of peace and tranquility insulated by surrounding wetland preserves and deep landscape installations. Nothing but leafy palms and tropical foliage can brush against Antilles’ horizon-wide views. Rookery Bay Reserve is its neighbor to the west. The majesty of local and migratory birds’ flight patterns across its 110,000 acres of protected lakes and habitats have added soaring highlights to Antilles’ homeowners’ daily routines.

The natural beauty in and around Antilles’ location is equally remarkable for its proximity to everything that makes Southwest Florida a world-class resort destination. Set back from the wide Collier Boulevard corridor, all that is exceptional about Old Naples and Marco Island’s attractions are just minutes away from Antilles. Wide beaches, fine dining, galleries, shopping, and endless fishing and boating opportunities abound in all directions, all year round.


Antilles’ Coach Homes are equally distinguished. Its 212 units offer handsome, new-look, contemporary residences with luxury appointments built in as standard fittings. The timeless elegance of West Indies Island-style architecture seems fitting in Naples’ subtropical climate. Detailed with dove grey stucco over concrete block, white trims, and sharp charcoal Bahama shutters, the homes are fresh-looking and pleasing, especially against Antilles’ lush landscaping. Phase Two Classic Coach Homes offer three-bedroom floorplans in the 1,500+ square-foot range and include attached single-car garages and screened-in lanais. They are priced from the high $400,000’s and include very private, preserve views. Larger Grand Coach Homes are also three-bedroom units with two-car garages and screened-in lanais. The upper-floor Montserrat is Antilles’ largest unit at 2,444 square feet under air. Preserve and lake view orientations are available from the low to mid $600,000’s.


JMD Development has allotted a generous amount of space to Antilles’ amenities. The Flamingo Club encompasses 14,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor features. The oversized 3,500-square-foot resort pool is a perfect example of the developers’ attention to detail. It is designed with a wide and inviting wade-in, sun-shelf entry that homeowners love. It also features a negative perimeter edge that appears at low angles to overflow into Antilles’ own five-acre Kingfisher Lake and wetland preserve like a stepped water feature gently meandering through the 54-acre community. The pool’s fluid design includes curved sides to create nooks and natural separations to accommodate a family or small group swim areas. A multi-person heated spa is adjacent and the huge tiki-hut with an end-to-end, quartz-topped service bar and BBQ grill area overlooking the pool. Antilles’ pergola-shaded fire pit has become a winter season favorite and the site of many evening cocktail celebrations. Outside the gated pool area regulation bocce and pickleball courts have attracted players at every level of expertise and a four-hole putting green was recently added, courtesy of JMD Development.




The Flamingo Club amenity center was designed to be at the heart of the community. Executive services are managed here and the exercise and fitness center, massage room, and catering kitchen are to the rear. Its huge gathering room occupies about one-half of the club’s 5,000-square-foot expanse and features wall-to-wall views across the community. It includes the fireplace lounge with comfortable furnishings and a big screen TV, Sonny’s all-day coffee bar, and multiple seating arrangements perfect for dining, socializing, and table games.


Low monthly fees and Antilles’ list of first-quality standard finishes and fittings also influence buyers. High ceilings, wide window walls, triple-width sliders, eight-foot solid core interior doors and wind and impact-rated windows and exterior doors, quartz countertops, and stainless-steel appliances are some of Antilles’ everyday building standards. Its feature sheet is on the website noted below for a full description.
