My wife and I have just retired ( ages 65 and 63) We plan on renting for a year in Naples. We like the Walk communities of VillageWalk, IslandWalk and VeronaWalk. Would anyone care to share their impressions of these communities? We enjoy tennis and swimming which these feature without a golfing environment. People we have talked to have been positive about their respective living situations in each place. Rental costs for the Capri Models are in the same ranges of $1250-1400. We hope to move down from New England this summer.

I live in VeronaWalk and have for over four years. It's an extremely social community--more clubs, group trips, get togethers, etc. than I could begin to name, the Town Center is amazing in every way--huge state of the art gym, huge pool, a bank, restaurant, little deli, hair salon, our own post office, car wash, etc., and we have quite a few super nice new and more modern models here now, too. The monthly maintenance fees are considerably lower than most gated communities that offer much less than we have here. And, yes, it's pretty safe.

The down side? You'd better like rules--which I do not! Not that I'm a rebel (or a slob) but you can't even hang a wreath on your front door or put a ceramic flower pot on your porch without writing to ask permission of the board first. Every Friday a woman rides around the community to check up on these things and if you've dared to put out that flower pot (or whatever) you'll get a nasty letter and 10 day warning about it. Talk about extreme!! Maybe it helps keep the place looking nice and keeps it cohesive, but it does seem over the top in this community to me. We used to live in a much older condo complex that also had it's rules, but they were few. You were allowed to exercise your common sense instead and the place looked beautiful so, again, to me the rules here are extreme and probably many of them are far more annoying than they are necessary.

Some of the other "Walks" may be different rule-wise, because the builder is not still on site as they are in VeronaWalk. They are run strictly by their own board made up of homeowners. So, that's something to ask about I'd think. Good luck.
