Celeb Spotting and Architecture Peeping in Naples, Florida

What does Judge Judy have in common with a retired banker? You’ll find both walking their dogs (in strollers) in the gated community of Bay Colony in Naples, Florida. Naturally, the houses and condos they vacation in are often more impressive than their careers.

Bay Colony's mansions on the beachWhile the series of high rises in Naples are full of condos worth seeing, the real high rollers have their own private houses on the beach at the end of Bay Colony Drive. (Tom Cruise was rumored to have owned one!)

In the market for a vacation spot and have a loose $12.9 million? Four bedrooms, six bathrooms and a den make up the nearly 10,000 sq. ft. of the above beach house. Guests have their own tower, on the right. Click for photos of the inside of this Bay Colony property.

The below mansion, with five bedrooms, five bathrooms and a den in over 7,000 sq. ft., runs for $10.9 million. A slideshow of the rooms inside can be found on the same site.
