What makes a community the best? Is it 700 acres of brilliant blue water? … 3 miles of private white-sand beach? … Does it offer a social experience that inspires you to dance like no one is watching? … Or laugh so hard with your BFFs you might literally ROFL? … Is it waking up and simply knowing this day will be unlike any other? … and the night will be as special? Miromar Lakes Beach & Golf Club, the #1 Community in the USA, is where your extraordinary life is realized. A feeling of belonging the moment the gates open to reveal the stunning view – palm trees and beach cabanas billowing in a soft breeze, the invitation of glistening white sand and aqua water beckoning. It’s a dramatic first impression you – and your guests – will always remember. “When we drove through the gates for the first time, I told my husband, Russ, ‘I’m home,’” said Beth Schomp of Washington, D.C. “It’s been so easy to meet people here, and there is something to do every day. Miromar Lakes has everything we wanted … amenities, the water and a strong social life.” At Miromar Lakes, each day provides a blank canvas waiting to be painted with the story of your life. Maybe boating, sailing or waterskiing on Lake Como or deferring to a more leisurely pace and the quiet stroke of a kayak paddle or a fishing line bobbing in the shimmer of sunlight on water. Walking hand-in-hand barefoot in the sand. Maybe it’s mornings spent on Southwest Florida’s only Arthur Hills Signature Championship golf course or mastering sun salutations during a yoga class at the Fitness Center. And the pleasure in knowing each evening will offer just as much opportunity – savoring gourmet fare and signature cocktails at the Blue Water Beach Grill, Golf Clubhouse or Beach Clubhouse, dancing to music near the water’s edge or celebrating a milestone with family and friends. Life within Miromar Lakes means looking back on the day and wondering how you managed to pack all that excitement and adventure into 10 hours … without even noticing the time. New Yorkers Susan and Anthony Natoro were attracted to Miromar Lakes’ energy. “We love the whole environment: Everyone is much younger, active and social,” he said. “We have a great clubhouse and poolside bar. We enjoy boating, kayaking, watersports and the pool and attend music and entertainment events twice a week.” Miromar Lakes is the only Florida community in history to receive the prestigious Gold Award – and the top title in the country – from the National Association of Home Builders. The Beach Clubhouse received the Gold Award for the Best Clubhouse in the United States. No other community has ever won both awards. Miromar Lakes was also honored with an NAHB Gold Award as #1 Suburban Community in the Best in American Living Awards program. This summer it received the Grand Aurora Award as the best community in the 12-state Southeast Building Conference. When a community is created with exacting attention to every last detail and a commitment to the highest standards, it naturally rises above the rest. Miromar Lakes has been selected by numerous industry experts as the very best nationally, regionally and locally. “Absolutely gorgeous!” wrote a judge after recently visiting Miromar Lakes for the Collier Building Industry Association’s annual Sand Dollar Awards. “Very nice layout,” wrote another judge. “It’s well hidden. I say it’s the best-kept secret overall!” Miromar Lakes won the 2018 Sand Dollar Award for Community of the Year – its 13th. It’s no surprise to residents that Miromar Lakes has received so many awards. They understand just how special Miromar Lakes is. “Miromar Lakes is unique and totally unlike any other community in Naples, Bonita Springs and Fort Myers,” agreed Mary and Charles Chitty of Georgia. “It’s a community where you feel like you’re on vacation but you’re actually home! There is something to do seven days a week and all kinds of opportunities to socialize.” At Miromar Lakes, it’s never a question of finding something to do … but figuring out what to do next. A dynamic social scene – daily happy hours, live music and special celebrations – promotes camaraderie and lifelong friendships. Resort-inspired amenities enhance the lifestyle with beachfront cabanas, chaises and the picturesque lake just steps away from the 10,000-square-foot zero-edge infinity pool. Miromar Lakes also offers a variety of dining destinations, busy tennis and bocce courts, plus a state-of-the-art fitness center and European-style spa with a full beauty salon. Over 14 miles of walking and biking paths spanning European bridges and promenades pausing at waterfront gardens with benches and flowerbeds woven into a tapestry of bright colors that echo the vibrant lifestyle. Lake Como, white-sand beach and golf course fairways provide the backdrop for intimate waterfront neighborhoods of Grand Estate Homes, Beach Houses, Estate Homes, Luxury Waterfront Villas and Golf Estate Villas.
