Ave Maria is a large community with several neighborhoods and a town center. Golf cart community. Del Webb is the main community within Ave Maria. The clubhouse is great and the pickleball courts are some of the best in Naples. It's outside the craziness of Naples and its traffic, but not too far, so you can still enjoy the shops and restaurants if you choose.
My son with his wife and 2, soon to be 3 young babies live in a Pulte home here at Ave Maria and suggested we consider buying a Del Webb home to downsize and be closer to our beautiful grandkids. We moved in February and have been loving every minute. I watch the kids twice a week over at their house and just love being so close by. Our old house was nearly an hour away so it has been a blessing to be so close.
My husband and I have already made new friends here and have been busy checking out all there is to do. The clubhouse is wonderful, very nice swimming pools and golf too. Our new neighbors went out of their way to make us feel welcome and even brought over some fresh baked muffins! I feel like we're part of a very nice community here.
