In the past, we’ve looked at affordable communities in Southwest Florida, cities that are awesome for boaters, and plenty more. So this week, I thought we might talk about a different kind of lifestyle… the sleepy, coastal city.
You’ve probably definitely heard the term before, and it’s become synonymous with those cute (and desirable) places to live that are off the radar a bit. However, in many cases, they still offer some big amenities, especially for outdoor lovers. Well, today, we’re going to explore 6 of these spectacular places to live when you’re on the hunt for Southwest Florida real estate.
Located at the very tip of SWFL, this tiny community packs a big punch. Surrounded by beaches that you can walk to from anywhere on the island, it also has quaint shops and some enjoyable places to eat. In addition, it’s very sleepy and off-the-beaten path.
Our next stop is a little south from Anna Maria as you come down the coast. As one of the area’s barrier islands, Long Boat Key also has a strip of shops and restaurants. The community is small, but very friendly. Plus, the beaches are second to none.
If you’ve been researching Southwest Florida real estate, you’ve probably come across this one. But you have to see Siesta Key to believe it. The beach is becoming world famous for its delightful sugar sand, but the quiet, slower lifestyle is popular for anyone looking to beat the rush of city living.
Another slightly hidden coastal community for local real estate, Boca Grande is popular among sport fishers. And with immediate access to Gasparilla Sound and Charlotte Harbor, it’s not hard to see why. Still, the island itself defines sleepy and coastal.
Right here in our own backyard off of Fort Myers is Captiva. Even though Sanibel, Captiva’s bigger cousin, is pretty sleepy, Captiva is the quintessential coastal town. You’ll find that the island lifestyle is incredibly popular here.
Finally, our last stop on the tour is Marco Island. Popular among snowbirds and even vacationing Floridians, you won’t hear much about this city. And for good reason: the main activity here is pure relaxation, making it just right if you want to escape it all, especially for retirees.
Wondering if one of our coastal cities is right for you when it comes to Southwest Florida real estate? Give me a shout and let’s talk about the options!
