Southwest Florida is filled with some exceptional 55+ communities, and some of our favorites offer generous amenities and impressive properties.

Pelican Preserve

One of the most exciting 55+ communities in the area is Pelican Preserve. This coveted development of WCI Communities offers a range of home designs, from those in the upper $100,000s to those in the $500,000s. Residents have their choice of everything from chateau homes to cottage homes, villas to grand villas and carriage homes to classic, single-family homes.

It’s the additional lifestyle benefits of Pelican Preserve, however, that really put the location over the top. The site is home to 27-holes of championship golf, along with the social hub of Plaza del Sol. This affords residents with access to an outdoor amphitheater and tennis courts, plus a lap and aerobics pool, spa treatment rooms, on-site dining and even an art studio.

In addition, Pelican Preserve boasts a resort-style swimming pool, dog park, butterfly garden and pickleball courts. Add in a fishing pier and nature boardwalk and it’s easy to see what makes the location so desirable.

Valencia Bonita

In comparison, the equally impressive Valencia Bonita presents an array of options for the active, 55+ lifestyle in Bonita Springs. This new development by GL Homes offers nearly two-dozen different floor plans, with your choice of a one- or two-story home.

Priced starting in the $300,000s, the single-family homes and villas of this community come in five distinct collections, with some including up to four-bedrooms and 3,300 square feet of living space. The homes are complimented by plenty of planned amenities, including the future addition of a main clubhouse with on-site dining, spa treatments, a full fitness center and even a lifestyle director.

In addition, other offerings will include a Racquet Club with multiple clay tennis courts, pickleball courts, bocce ball courts and a resort-style swimming pool. As well, the homes of Valencia Bonita enjoy the luxury of preserve, waterfront or garden views.
