Coral Lakes


If you’re looking for a master-planned community check out Coral Lakes. Like many communities in the area, Coral Lakes is gated for security, and filled with big 4 and 5 bedroom homes and a roughly equivalent number of townhomes for smaller families, retirees or vacationers. The neighborhood has plenty of amenities for the kiddos, like volleyball courts, soccer fields and play areas. Many of the homes are on the water, as you’ll find throughout Cape Coral. If you want to go even more upscale check out West Cape Estates. The roads are cobblestone, the lots are big and many of the homes are on the community’s 2-acre freshwater lake. The neighborhood also has some homes with water access to the Gulf of Mexico.

Cape Royal


So many of the gated communities in Cape Coral feel like 55+ neighborhoods you find in other cities that the options feel endless. Some are focused on the 55+ community and we’d recommend starting with Cape Royal. It’s a golf community with just 483 single-family homes, plenty of resort amenities, and a 27-hole championship golf course. There are year-round events, trips and community activities for those looking to be social.
