Nestled away in the southwest part of Florida is the enclave of single family homes of Bay Harbor at Bonita Bay. It’s a small community with only sixty-two home sites and strategically located between Ft. Myers and Naples, with a highly desirable tropical climate. You’ll find the homes range from a modest two bedrooms, perfect for couples or larger four bedroom homes, more suited for families. Since the neighborhood has been built out, there are no more lots available and resales aren’t easy to come by. Even though many homes have their own pools, there are many amenities to take advantage of living in this vibrant community.
Many of the homes were built between 1995 and 1998 and have either a lake view or a wooded preserve view. You’ll see lush, tropical landscaping that Florida is known for among the homes and throughout the community. There are both single story and two-story floor plans, mostly with Mediterranean architecture. These elegant patio homes were built by Centex Homes. Residents enjoy a maintenance free lifestyle so they have time to enjoy living. There are excellent schools for children, both public and private, so you can be assured your children will receive a good education.
Bay Harbor Amenities
Bay Harbor is near a private park where you can actually catch a bus or trolley to Bonita Beach. The park is located on the Gulf of Mexico and has restrooms, a playground, swimming area, beach volleyball, and shelters with tables and grills. It has its own unique walking path with three interior parks for recreation. Estero Bay Park comes complete with a boardwalk, butterfly garden, and a walking pier. The Bonita Bay Club has a first-class fitness center with an adjoining swimming pool. There are 18 clay courts at the Bonita Bay Tennis complex, so make sure you have a tennis racket. Although there are no golf courses in Bay Harbor, residents take advantage of the five championship golf courses nearby. There is a course for every level, whether you’re a novice or a professional. Each course has 18 holes, so you can enjoy a challenge every day of the week. Social memberships are available, along with a Bonita Bay marina membership.
Bonita Bay Marina
The full-service marina is located on the Imperial River at Estero Bay with access to the Gulf of Mexico. Residents love to dine at Backwater Jacks, a favorite waterfront restaurant and bar. It’s a casual dining venue that serves both lunch and dinner, and, of course, your favorite cocktail. There’s nothing like sitting out by the water eating a wonderful fresh seafood meal! Bring your boat or yacht as there are both dry storage and slips available with on-site fuel. You’ll find everything you need at the Ships Store, from shoes and hats to maps and sunglasses. The marina also does light maintenance, washing and waxing, propeller reconditioning, and battery service. You can charter an offshore fishing vessel or go sight-seeing, so bring your fishing poles.
