Birds, Boats, and Banana Trees Happily Co-exist at Tidewater Island

Old Florida-style homes are just part of the appeal of living at Tidewater Island in Fort Myers. You might say the secluded neighborhood also happens to be a place where birds, boats, and banana trees happily co-exist.

Encircled by tropical foliage, the landscape of Tidewater Island is known to attract birdlife such as egrets, great blue herons, and even bald eagles. You may also spot manatee while out on your boat, or fish for tarpon and snook in area waters.

Many of the individual homes of Tidewater Island offer splendid views overlooking natural preserves and local waterways. It’s common for area homes to come with patios and balconies too, creating the ideal setting for outdoor living and entertaining space in this part of Fort Myers. 

Living in Tidewater Island oftentimes means easy boating access to Estero Bay, the Gulf, and Pine Island Sound. Some of the homes in the community come with their own private boat docks, meaning you can virtually step right outside your home and head out on the water whenever you choose.

The intimate, waterfront community offers space for just a few dozen residences behind its gates, with single-family home options typically ranging from Gulf-access, waterfront homes to grand estates, sometimes with water views. Options recently listed on the market include a home built in the early 2000s but recently remodeled with a boat dock and boat lift.

Another, fully furnished home in Tidewater Island comes with a private elevator. Yet another home includes a large saltwater swimming pool, while a separate home features a heated swimming pool overlooking water views.

For additional amenities, memberships are available for tennis, golf, dining, or swimming at nearby Forest Country Club. You’ll find the private neighborhood of Tidewater Island off US-41, to the south of Six Mile Cypress Parkway in Fort Myers.
