Located amidst 261 acres that border the beautiful Rookery Bay Preserve on Naples’ eastern perimeters, Artesia is an emerging community being created by WCI, one of Southwest Florida’s most-respected and pioneering builders of marvelous, master-planned residential developments.

This is precious land situated beside a gorgeous expanse of natural lakes and green preserves that border the Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve. For all the natural bliss imparted within this rustic setting, Artesia is still only minutes from world-famous Fifth Avenue South in downtown Naples as well as Marco Island, the largest in a composite of Gulf land masses collectively known as “The Ten Thousand Islands.” Residents may revel in having convenient access to the array of amazing options available within the greater metropolitan areas, yet within their private enclave, they will indulge in a blend of enduring peace and scenic tranquility for which few communities can boast.
