Harbour Isle Overview
Harbour Isle in Bradenton, Florida is a gated active lifestyle community in proximity of Holmes Beach on Anna Maria Sound. This barrier island is cooled by tropical trade winds in the summer and warmed by the Gulf stream current in the winter. Built by Minto Communities, Harbour Isle is approved for a total of 686 homes. Until then, buyers can take advantage of new inventory in addition to resale homes.
A gated guard tower and dramatic entrance lead to a drive lined with striking native palms. The tower provides stunning views of the Gulf of Mexico and Anna Maria Sound. At any given time, manatees, spoonbills, dolphins and ospreys might surround the beautiful property. Two miles of walking paths surround the island.
