We lived in Naples for 20 years then moved out of state. My elderly parents need my help and they cant relocate. My son is okay w transferring yo FGCU in fort Myers and is moving into their Naples condo until my house is sold here. Myself and my younger kids will be going... problem I was very unhappy in Naples. Its beautiful to visit but it never felt like home. My house budget is between 120000 n 150000. I work from home. I will probably be with my parents helping them w food shopping cleaning errands several times a week. My son likes the estates n we love to raise chickens... garden...and we have two large dogs. Not looking to pay how fees....where to live where there's more to do...kid friendly... within an hour....cape coral has too many restrictions...east coast too far...not crazy about fort Myers....want a bike friendly lively downtown where there is a mix....downtown Naples is too snooty for us...but beautiful...just not for us.

Want to be allowed work vehicles pick up truck n boat on property...but don't like boonies. My husband will be visiting often and his vehicles have his business advertised....this is frowned on most areas of Naples

If your parents live in Naples, then Port Charlotte is too far to travel every day in order to care for them. It is about an hour drive.

You should look in Cape Coral or Ft. Myers. I think you will find homes in those areas that will suit your needs and be much closer to service your family.

Hi, I thought I posted it in the main Florida forums, and in this forum . . . once in each . . not sure how that happened.

Thanks, I realize that it will be too far, and the price of gas going back and forth to care for them, pick up my kids from school, will leave me broke.
