“There will never be another Port Royal” ~Glen Sample
Port Royal is simply the most prestigious neighborhood in Naples, and indeed with its palatial estates, breathtaking waterways and luxurious lifestyle Port Royal could be considered one of the world’s finest. The community is nestled between the sugary, white sand beaches of the Gulf of Mexico and Naples Bay. It consists of approximately 500 residences; most of which enjoy wide sweeping water views from the comfort of their own backyards. The deepwater yacht basin provides boats and yachts Gulf and Bay access, offering some of the finest fishing grounds in Florida. Port Royal is a landmark community with masterpiece architectural estates that exhibit casual elegance, privacy, and the pinnacle of luxury.
Many of the older, smaller Port Royal homes have been torn down to be replaced by the luxury estates that define this luxury community, as a result, vacant lots in Port Royal are available starting at around $4 million and up. Waterfront homes with canal access begin at $5.2 million. Prices for Port Royal beachfront estate homes begin at around $14 million.
In a 1960 brochure for Port Royal lot and home prices: "Gulf access lots. $13,000 to $35,000. Homes from $350,000." It is amazing how far a community can come if it is created with vision and passion along with a healthy dose of competence.
“My ambition is to make Port Royal the finest place in the world to live. And I believe I’m succeeding” ~ Glen Sample
Indeed, Glen Sample has succeeded beyond anyone’s wildest dreams. The retired executive and pioneer in radio advertising from Chicago was the original developer in the 1940s. In 1938 Sample purchased two square miles of mangrove marshes and swampland for $13,700. Influenced heavily by Jamaica's own village of Port Royal and her pirate past, he began wet-dredging his swamp to create lands and waterways that are up to 40 feet deep in areas. Sample's affection for the pirates that once traveled the waters in the 17th century is evident in his streets names: Rum Row, Treasure Lane, Gin lane, Galleon Drive, etc.
