Three things that truly define Fort Myers are its grand beach, its tropical weather and its vast array of gated communities. Our gated communities come in more flavors than Baskin-Robbins…..have more choices than Forest Gump’s box of chocolates….and have names that would even twist the tongue of a Starbucks Barista.

With literally hundreds of communities to choose from, it can be very confusing for an out-of-towner or newcomer to search for a gated community home in the Fort Myers area. Two key decisions that can help to narrow your search are: (1) What type of amenities do you require and (2) What part of Fort Myers do you want to live in?

Gated Communities Dominate in Fort Myers

With an average annual temperature of 75 degrees, Fort Myers offers year-round outdoor fun on the water for its residents. Water skiing is a popular Southwest Florida activity and we are fortunate to have two communities with large freshwater lakes catering to water skiing families.

The Harbourage

The Harbourage features two aquifer-fed freshwater lakes which are 30 feet deep and cover 104 acres. The lakes at The Harbourage are fronted by upscale single-family homes. Many community residents have ski boats docked behind their homes and enjoy skiing on a regular basis. The Harbourage is an established, gated community of 128 homes located in South Fort Myers off US-41, south of Alico Road.
