As the longer days of Southwest Florida’s summer season stretch out to their solstice this month, few quiet pleasures can surpass lazing in the shade of a covered Lanai for sheer languid bliss.  Dad will love it.  Antilles is hushed by the rich greens of preserve and deeply landscaped installations on all sides, while its cul-de-sac location at the end of a long approach keeps the possibility of ambient traffic noises to the barest minimum.  Covered Lanais allow for a comfortable indoor-outdoor lifestyle.  Antilles’ screened-in Lanais extend that possibility throughout the summer months as well, when the afternoon rains can produce almost as many rainbows as cooler evenings best appreciated outside.  JMD Development recognized that tranquil phenomenon and guaranteed it in the purchase price of every residence in Antilles,  but that is just one of many superior components that set a home there apart from other new construction communities in Naples.  High ceilings, deep wood trims, wide window walls, 8-foot solid core interior doors, wind-rated exterior doors and windows – no hurricane shutters required – stainless steel Kitchen appliances, quartz countertops throughout and Carrier air conditioning systems are at the top of Antilles’ dream team of Standard Features built into every residence. 

The 54-acre community itself is a study in how a cohesive design process enveloping all phases in its development and first quality building materials can deliver a modern, secure and handsome development as desirable as it is well engineered.  Timeless West Indies Island style architecture rendered in a soft dove grey palette highlighted by crisp white trims and deep-toned charcoal Bahama shutters is carried through in both the cement roof tiles and tonal brick paver walk and driveways, defining and enhancing the community at every turn.

Antilles includes 212 three-Bedroom Coach Homes.   Classic Coach Homes offer floorplans in the 1,500+ square foot range and are priced from the upper $400,000’s.  Pricing for larger Grand Coach Homes starts from the upper $500,000 for units ranging from 1,980 to 2,444 square feet under air.  Attached Garages and screened-in, private Lanais as wide as the unit’s Great Room are included with every purchase.  Preserve and premium lake orientations are available. 

The new designer model for the Classic Coach Home’s first floor Saba is still being installed but can be viewed when accompanied by an on-site agent.  It is a showcase for the revised Kitchen layout that relocates its Phase 1 Pantry to a side wall, significantly opening up its Great Room footprint without expanding the floorplan.  The Saba includes direct Garage access.

The Classic Coach Home’s upper floor Tobago floorplan is somewhat smaller than the Saba, but  its higher ceilings make it seem to live larger.  Its Great Room features a cove ceiling in its peninsula style Kitchen plus the same relocated Pantry as noted in the Saba.  Its top floor views are exceptional and, as in all Antilles’ Coach Homes, the Master Suite is located across the home from the other Bedrooms.

The Grand Coach Home’s first floor Nevis floorplan features a side Entry that showcases the entire Great Room as soon as you open the door.  It features a huge chef’s Kitchen complete with oversized island that has sight lines over the entire living area.  A favorite feature of the Nevis is its separate Storage Room in addition to the Pantry, both of which are lined with floor to ceiling shelves.  The upper floor Montserrat floorplan  has a first floor Entry that sets it apart for its private, single family home ambience.  It mirrors the Nevis in many features and also focuses on the Kitchen as the heart of the home.

JMD Development included an exceptional amount of resort level amenities for Antilles’ homeowners.  The Flamingo Club encompasses 14,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor features and 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 homeowners love.  It also features a negative perimeter edge that appears at low angles to overflow into Antilles’ own 5-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 family or small group swim areas.  A multi person heated Spa is adjacent and the huge Tiki-Hut with end-to-end, quartz-topped service bar and BBQ grill area that overlooks the Pool.  Antilles’ pergola shaded Fire Pit has become a winter season favorite and site of many evening cocktail celebrations.

Outside the gated Pool area, Antilles’ regulation Bocce and Pickleball Courts have attracted players at every level of expertise.  Equipment is provided by JMD Development for the use of homeowners and their guests at no cost.  It also added a 4-hole Putting Green recently.  As a family owned and operated company, the principals have taken a personal interest in every phase of Antilles’ development.

The Flamingo Club amenity center was designed to be at the heart of the community.  In addition to its expansive Outdoor Living Area, it is as representative of Antilles’ luxury resort presentation as it is of the quality built into every residence.  Concierge and executive services are managed here and the Exercise and Fitness Center, Massage Room and Catering Kitchen are to the rear.  The 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 Cafe and all day Coffee Bar and multiple round tables and chairs perfect for dining, socializing, cards and board games.

Antilles is a short drive from the fine dining and shopping opportunities of Old Naples.  Marco Island’s world class beaches and fishing spots are equally close.  It is a gated community 2 miles south of Tamiami Trail East (US 41), off Collier Boulevard (SR 951). Turn east on Port Au Prince Road and continue to The Flamingo Club, 155 Indies Drive East, Naples,  FL  34114.  Antilles is represented by JRW Developer Resources, a division of John R. Wood Properties.  Please refer to to register for the most current updates or call 239-691-4455 for an appointment.  The Sales Center is open daily 10AM to 5PM and Noon to 5PM on Sundays.  Jaime and Kerry are on site to represent the property.
