Secluded yet conveniently located in desirable south Fort Myers near the beaches, Colonial Pointe is a small residential neighborhood of single-family homes surrounding a large lake. Colonial Pointe real estate is currently experiencing growth in home prices and demand like much of SW Florida.
Developed by Colonial Homes beginning in 2003, Colonial Pointe is located off Gladiolus Drive between Summerlin Road and Winkler Road. Residents here can get to the sugar-sand beaches of Fort Myers Beach or Sanibel Island in just about 15 minutes by car.

Colonial Pointe Amenities
With just 72 single-family homes here, one of the main benefits of life in Colonial Pointe is the friendly, intimate atmosphere found in smaller communities. Traffic is limited to one road that wraps around the subdivision, secured by a private entry gate.
All of life’s necessities are just minutes from your door, like food stores and pharmacies, dozens of Fort Myers’ best restaurants to satisfy any devoted foodie and many professional, medical and financial offices. Lee Health System’s HealthPark Hospital compound is just 5-minutes from Colonial Pointe.
But perhaps the most appealing reason to live here is the proximity of the Gulf of Mexico beaches of the Lee Island Coast. Take a swim or lounge in the sun or venture out for an idyllic day trip to charming Sanibel Island, all just 15-minutes from your door.
Colonial Pointe is home to families and retired seniors who have discovered this little-known neighborhood, and properties here rarely become available for sale.
