Live with the Dolphins at Palmetto Point
With its deep-water canals and private boat docks right outside, it’s possible to virtually live with the dolphins at Palmetto Point. This luxury boating community in Fort Myers has a marina and direct Gulf access, and it’s not unheard of for homeowners to spot dolphins and manatees out in the water.
Built up along the Caloosahatchee River and surrounded by natural preserves too, most of the properties of Palmetto Point can easily accommodate boats of up to 80 feet. Palmetto Point boasts a location that’s just as easy to go for a ride up the Intracoastal as it is to head to the Gulf for some fishing.
The majority of lots in Palmetto Point sit on the river or a canal, and while the few non-waterfront homes do sell at a more affordable price point, it’s not unheard of to find newer and larger homes in the community priced in the multi-million-dollar range. While you won’t find a community swimming pool or clubhouse in Palmetto Point, many homes do come with their own private attributes, and of course, easy boating access, which is what drives many buyers to this upscale community.
Apart from boating, it’s only a short drive to reach some of the best Gulf area beaches, or other nearby conveniences and attractions in this part of Florida. A prime location and water access are certainly what helps make this community so popular, and it explains why you’ll seldom find many homes in Palmetto Point on the market.
The 140 estate homes of Palmetto Point are luxurious themselves. While some were developed in the 1970s, others have been updated or even replaced in more recent years, with stunning newer construction designs on a grand scale. It’s sometimes even possible to find lots that are ready for a new construction home.
