Coco Bay Amenities
While many of the single-family homes here have their own pool, residents can join their neighbors at the 3,300-square foot clubhouse and take an invigorating dip in the resort-style pool or spa after a day at the nearby beaches. There is a game and social room here, a library, exercise room and a large sundeck surrounding the pool for lounging lakeside among the lush tropical foliage.
If golf is your passion, you’ll love the fact that Coco Bay is adjacent to the popular Kelly Greens 18-hole championship golf course, one of the most scenic and challenging layouts in southwest Florida. Residents of Coco Bay are entitled to golf privileges in the off-season, and membership here is very reasonable should you want to take advantage of all that Kelly Greens has to offer.
Even though residents in Coco Bay find it hard to leave the secured, private entry gates, you may want to venture out to spend the day on tranquil Sanibel Island or put your toes in the sugar-sand on Fort Myers Beach, both just a 10-minute car drive away from home. Shopping is right down the road at the Sanibel Outlet Shops, and foodies will find dozens of dining options from casual to upscale within a 5-minute drive from Coco Bay.
This highly desirable residential gem is hidden away from the main roads, providing peaceful ambience and tranquil surroundings, yet nearby all the daily conveniences one could ever need.
