Island Walk is a gated community in North Naples filled with winding tree-lined streets and lakes. The lakes have water features which offer both beauty and a relaxing spa like atmosphere. There are delightful outdoor gathering spaces sprinkled throughout the neighborhood, complete with tall palm trees and beautiful flowers.
Sidewalks will navigate you throughout the many streets and cul-de-sacs contained within Island Walk. Along the way, there are benches and small park-like areas to admire the lake or just sit and enjoy the beautiful sunshine and colorful landscape.
The Town Center offers something incredibly unique to Island Walk. In addition to the usual amenities, this centrally located building offers a restaurant, hair salon, nail salon, post office, car wash and gas station. This facility and all its’ features are available to residents. It is adjacent to the pool area and other amenities, offering a small town feeling in the heart of a gated community.
Numerous annual events take place at the Town Center and allow neighbors to gather for various celebrations. With over 1,500 residences, the additional amenities include two pools, fitness center, bocce, classes, and a calendar of social events.
The homes include villas, townhomes, single family homes. The buildings all have a more European design with arches and traditional style windows and architectural details. The neighborhood has a lengthy road that defines the outer perimeter of the neighborhood. The homes on this side of the street have landscaped backyards. There are a multitude of side streets that traverse off this main road and create a road worthy of biking, walking, roller blading, and dog walking.
The villas have open concept two bedroom plus den options with a two- car garage. The townhomes are mainly two-story bedroom homes with a courtyard style rear outdoor space, complete with a two-car garage. The single- family homes have the option of two, three or four bedrooms. They have two or three car garages and most have large windows or French doors to maximize light and the indoor/outdoor lifestyle most loved about SW Florida.
Island Walk sits in an “A” rated school district and is convenient to restaurants, shops, and a short drive to the much-loved Mercado shopping area. Conveniently located in North Naples at the corner of Logan and Vanderbilt, Island Walk is like walking back in time to a Main St USA neighborhood, nicely situated in a tropical paradise.
