Miromar Lakes Beach & Golf Club is a luxury community located between Naples and Fort Myers, FL. Despite the development being located within the city of Estero, Miromar Lakes is large enough to merit its own zip code, which adds to the community’s exclusive appeal.
With a home in Miromar Lakes Beach as your base, you can easily enjoy the larger Estero community, as well as a long list of shopping, dining, and natural attractions. Founded in 1894, Estero was originally a small, 300-acre fishing village created by followers of religious eccentric Cyrus Teed. Estero has since grown into a charming, seaside community, which has retained its small-town charm, while also offering every service and amenity of its larger neighbors. The coastline has a long history as a citrus region and is also home to Florida Gulf Coast University.
Below are ten reasons you’ll love Miromar Lakes Beach & Golf Club:
1. It’s Florida’s most award-winning residential community
The only community in Southwest Florida to offer waterfront living, white-sand beaches, and championship golf course in one place, Miromar Lakes Beach & Golf Club has racked up awards for its quality of life. Winner of Community of the Year and Best Clubhouse by the National Association of Home Builders, this dreamy community offers a wide range of residential choices in a five-star, resort-style setting.
The CEO and president of Miromar Development, Margaret Antonier, sought to create a residential setting similar to the relaxed, yet elegant lifestyle found on the Italian and French Rivieras. You’ll truly enjoy being home thanks to the vibrant social activities, thoughtful amenities, and attention to detail throughout the community. There’s no reason to choose between sailing or golf at Miromar—you can do both on the same day.
2. Residents enjoy resort-style amenities
While you may need to spend the day in your home office, work and daily chores are infinitely more enjoyable when you can gaze out your window at the sparkling Lake Como in Miromar. When work is done, and it’s time to play—there is a myriad of choices for Miromar Lakes residents:
- Go water-skiing, swimming, sailing, or kayaking in the afternoon.
- Go fishing on the 700-acre freshwater Lake Como.
- Tee off on the Arthur Hills championship golf course or practice your serve at the tennis courts.
- Sink into a sumptuous spa treatment at the European-style wellness center.
- Zone out as you dive into a juicy novel or take a siesta in a beachside cabana, lined up on three miles of private white-sand beach.
- Stroll along The Marina on the Peninsula, where you can play bocce ball or join an outdoor yoga or tai chi class.
- Attend a poolside cookout or beach party.
- Try a paddle-fit lesson.
- Enjoy an evening of wine tasting and pairings.
Whether you’re working from home, enjoying retirement, or entertaining your kids and grandkids, there’s no shortage of activities for all ages and interests. In addition to entertaining yourself, there are approximately 300 events per year within the Miromar Lakes community, from themed dinners to cooking classes, to sand-castle contests. Think Martini Mondays, Taco Tuesdays, and daily happy hours. There are kayak eco-tours, holiday celebrations, as well as a long list of options available to residents every day (powerboat rentals, paddle boarding, etc.)
3. Need something? Ring the concierge
Need service at your home or on your boat? Contact the friendly, professional concierge, and they will clean and fuel your boat, open your home to allow package delivery when you are out of town, and arrange for dog-walking, home repair, and grocery-shopping service. You’ll feel like a VIP every day.
4. You can hit the beach every day
If you’re seeking property in Estero or Miromar Lakes, you’re at least partly in it for the beach. As a Miromar Lakes resident, you’ll have private access to three miles of white-sand beach, plus access to the Beach Clubhouse on the water’s edge. The clubhouse provides gourmet dining, wine tastings, billiards, cards, and even film screenings in a 50-seat theater.
After a day on the beach, gather with friends at the Blue Water Beach Grill for evening cocktails and a sunset dinner overlooking Lake Como. Still out on the water? Dock your boat right at the Mediterranean-style, open-air pavilion and sit down to a meal of contemporary favorites and tropical drinks, served in a relaxed resort atmosphere.
5. Hone your game at the Miromar Tennis Club
Take your tennis game up a notch on the Miromar Tennis Club’s seven lighted Har-Tru tennis courts. Center court boasts an enviable waterside setting, and there are regular clinics held for every level of player (as well as weekly round robins to enjoy a bit of friendly competition.)
6. It’s easy to slip away to the spa
Could there be anything more dreamy than having daily access to a full-service spa, right in your own backyard? Such is life when you choose one of the many luxury homes in Miromar Lakes. Slip away for a massage, facial, or salt-glow scrub, have your nails and hair done at the beauty salon, or just take a few moments to yourself in the private Zen garden, cozy in a plush Miromar Spa robe.
Prefer to get your heart rate up before your spa session? Visit the fitness center, available to all residents, with top-of-the-line Cybex weight machines and cardio equipment, as well as aerobics, yoga, and Pilates studios.
7. Championship golf in your backyard
Many of the upscale waterfront communities near Estero are golf-centric—often at the expense of other activities. At Miromar Lakes, you’ll enjoy fantastic fairways, to be sure, but there are countless other experiences to round out your days.
If golf is your game, you’ll love the convenient access to one of Southwest Florida’s Arthur Hills Signature Championship golf course. This exclusive members-only country club experience includes access to a private clubhouse, assorted dining options, PGA instruction, men’s and women’s leagues, and more.
8. Shopping abounds
Outfit yourself in style and at great prices each season at the Miromar Outlets, an open-air setting with more than 140 stores and several dining options. Save up to 70% off original listed prices at Saks OFF 5th, Neiman Marcus Last Call, Bloomingdale’s The Outlet, and more.
9. You’re surrounded by nature
Known as a nature lover’s destination along the Florida Gulf Coast, Estero offers many natural attractions to residents and tourists. Explore the artifacts at Mound Key Archaeological State Park, where you can see ancient shell mounds thought to be ceremonial centers of the Calusa Indians. Learn about the Koreshan Unity religious colony at the Koreshan State Historic Site, (listed on the National Register of Historic Places) and keep an eye out for bobcats, gray foxes, and alligators. Take a gardening class or kayak along the Estero River at the Happehatchee Center’s nature sanctuary.
10. There’s Great Dining Nearby
Fancy yourself a foodie? With Naples to the south and Fort Myers to the north, it’s easy to enjoy a decadent meal within a short drive. Celebrate a birthday or milestone at Ocean Prime on Fifth Avenue South in downtown Naples—next door to world-class galleries and theaters. Choose from an impressive array of seafood and prime cuts of steak, complemented by signature cocktails and a Wine Spectator-honored wine list. At Angelina's in nearby Bonita Springs, dig into prime beef carpaccio, homemade veal agnolotti, or American red snapper piccatta.
One more reason a Miromar Lakes luxury home should be in your future: the community’s vast selection of neighborhoods and residential styles. From grand estate homes with mile-long waterfront views and custom floor plans—to unassuming, Italian-style homes with private boat docks—there’s something for every luxury style and taste. There are full-floor residences in eye-catching buildings on Lake Como or award-winning coach homes with lake and golf course views. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that a community with such depth and variety has its very own zip code.
