If exclusive, waterfront living with easy Gulf access is on your wish list, Dolphin Cove deserves to be on the top of your potential residential gated communities in Bonita Springs, Florida.
With just 10 single-family estate homes within this private, gated enclave, residents here experience a truly unique and peaceful lifestyle with the benefit of having their boat in the wide waterway just outside their back door. The large, stately homes feature private docks, many with boat lifts.
There are no bridges between Dolphin Cove and the waters of Little Hickory Bay, which opens to the world-class fishing waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
Located off West Avenue just south of the Lee – Collier County line, Dolphin Cove is a boater’s paradise in a secluded, tranquil setting.
Dolphin Cove Real Estate
With just 10 homes within this waterfront haven, it is easy to see why they so seldom become available for sale.
A property that sold in March 2022 features 4 bedrooms and a den with 3 full baths and 1 half bathroom. Encompassing just under 3,000 square feet of luxurious living space on 2 floors, this beautiful home was built in 2000. The home exudes a stunning, island-style curb appeal reminiscent of Key West, with amenities like a 4-car garage, huge kitchen and top-of-the-line finishes and designer touches.
Surrounded by lush, exotic tropical landscaping and featuring an oversized, open-air pool, the home also includes a 15,000-lb. boat lift on the private dock. The property sold for $2,500,000, with a quarterly Homeowners Association, (HOA), fee of $400.00.
Dolphin Cove Amenities
One of the key luxuries of living in Dolphin Cove is the easy boating access right outside your door. Set in an idyllic location about a mile south of Bonita Beach Road, residents in this secure, gated community can get to anywhere in Lee or Collier County in just a few minutes by car.
The powdery sand beaches of the Gulf are just 10 minutes away, perfect for a day with the grandkids. Dozens of restaurants featuring everything from fine dining to simple, family-casual fare are just a few minutes from home, plus pharmacies, food stores, doctor and financial offices and hundreds of other retail stores for all the day-to-day conveniences you’ll ever need.
Head east on Bonita Beach Road to access Interstate 75, offering easy trips to the Southwest Florida International Airport about 20 minutes north in Fort Myers, or a weekend escape to Fort Lauderdale and Miami to the east.
If the ideal boater’s lifestyle is your passion, living in Dolphin Cove will not disappoint.
