Eight Lakes Offer Stunning Views

For stunning water views and Gulf access, you certainly can’t go wrong with Eight Lakes. This Cape Coral community gains its name from two cloverleaf-shaped, saltwater lakes.

The similarly shaped lakes are referred to as Thunderbird Lake on the northern side and Britannia Lake on the southern side. Thunderbird has the advantage of just one bridge out, but it has a longer run than Britannia, which features two bridges.

The lakes sit close to Tarpon Point Resort and the Rose Garden neighborhood of Cape Coral. People commonly move here for the views, and of course the prime Gulf access.

Purchasing one of the single-family homes of Eight Lakes means easy access to an array of watersports, from boating and fishing to jet skiing, kayaking, and stand up paddleboarding. Each of the cloverleaf-shaped lakes is hundreds of feet across too, which means the water views here are substantially more impressive than you might find living alongside a canal.

While some of the first homes in Eight Lakes date back to the early 1970s, its more common to find homes built in the mid 1980s, or even more recently. This sometimes makes it possible to find an older, more affordably priced home in need of updates in Eight Lakes, as well as a newer home.

There are also sometimes more affordably priced homes on the edges of the community, too. Some of the homes recently listed on the market in Eight Lakes are established homes that have included four-bedrooms, but there are also some newer construction homes that have recently been on the market and are even larger, with plenty of indoor/outdoor living and entertaining space. 

You’ll find Eight Lakes in the southwestern section of Cape Coral, with Pelican Boulevard to the east and Skyline Boulevard to the west. El Dorado Boulevard sits to the south, and Cape Coral Parkway sits to the north.
