"My husband and I looked at countless houses, but we knew this was the one for us once we saw it. After talking to other Grand Bay homeowners, we bought our new house with its one-year warranty.
The house has proven to be as well built as it is beautiful. We had built before, and knew that during the first year of use, a house settles and may need work. In our case, we encountered very few things that needed to be repaired during our first year of living in the house. Grand Bay responded with speed, attention to detail and follow up on all of our requests.
We highly recommend Grand Bay."

"When we decided to build a home in Naples, Florida while we were still living in Greenwich,
Connecticut we were skeptical about having enough control over the project
to ensure we created the house of our dreams. Now that our home is completed
I can honestly say that the experience was rewarding, fun, and entirely successful.
Our home has exceeded our expectations in every way. Grand Bay has been receptive
to all our concerns throughout the process, responding immediately when we had questions.
The home is so well built and all details are of the highest quality.
Every person on the Grand Bay team including all the trades they hire are superb
craftsmen and great to work with.
I cannot say enough positive things about our experience.. Grand Bay is a first class operation!""
Betsy and Bruce Finley
"We went through a rigorous process when selecting the builder for our new home in Naples. We interviewed 10 builders both smaller and larger than Grand Bay and we finally selected Grand Bay because we loved the quality of the homes they had built in Naples. Not only did we get the high quality we expected from Grand Bay but they made the whole experience pleasurable. Their attention to detail is amazing and they never rushed us to make a decision. If we were not completely satisfied with the way something looked it was quickly changed until we were completely satisfied. It has been over a year since we moved in but Art and Jeff still stop by to make sure everything is perfect. If I build another home, Grand Bay will be the builder."
"After considering whether to buy a new home or build a new home,
my wife and I decided to buy an old "tear down" house in Old Naples in mid 2007,
with the intention of building our eventual retirement home. We found a great piece
of land, and went through the process of interviewing various builders. We ended up
choosing Grand Bay, given their familiarity with the Old Naples market, their reputation,
and the quality of their work in other homes. Buy February 2009, we moved into our new home,
and were absolutely delighted. The process we went through with Art and Jeff Canada was
enjoyable, and the end result was a fabulous home, which came in on budget.
I would strongly recommend Grand Bay as a home builder."

"We have built several homes and our experience with Art and Jeff Canada was absolutely wonderful.
Art's creativeness along with our input made for our unique custom home. Jeff's diligence and attention
to detail gave us peace of mind which is rare when building a new home. The budget was right on the numbers.
I can't say enough good things about our experience. When you walk into a Grand Bay house, you feel at home right away.
As you visit Old Naples you can hardly go for more than a block without seeing a unique Grand Bay home.
Art is leaving his legacy in our beautiful town.."
"My wife and I contacted Grand Bay Building &
Development Corporation after one of their homes
caught our attention. We found the home so warm and
appealing that it felt like we could have moved in
with only our toothbrushes. Impressed with the
quality and imagination that went into that home, we
selected them to be our builder. We had a wonderful
experience that lasted about 18 months from design
phase to completed construction."
feel like Art made what could have been a difficult
task – our selection process – very smooth by
showing us how everything, including all the
details, would fit together. We remain good friends
with Art today – three years after we moved into our
beautiful waterfront home in Naples."
"Building with Grand Bay brings with it a piece of
mind that comes from the high-touch supervision. A
value in today's world is integrity. Art and I had a
true gentleman's agreement - a hand shake - when
Grand Bay began the work on our home. My wife and I
were looking to build a home that wasn't typical of
all that we saw in the Naples area. Grand Bay homes
are eye catchers. When you drive by them, you
naturally stop to look twice because the curbside
appeal is amazing."
Don and Esther Brown
built 5 previous homes, our experience with Grand Bay
Development was our best by far. From the initial
design stage to completion, everyone on staff was a
professional and pleasant to deal with. Superior
quality prevailed through every phase of designing
and building our house. We could not have asked more
from our experience with Grand Bay Development. They
have created a showcase home with such curb appeal
that several strangers have knocked on our door
wanting to know who built our beautiful house. We
enthusiastically recommend Grand Bay Development to
everyone who asks."
Gail & Ron Carstersen
"Dear Art, Jeff, Brenda, Joanna, Roland, Brad &
Words cannot fully express our gratitude to all of
you for developing such a beautiful home for us.
We are so very pleased with how every square foot
has turned out.
