Lely Resort is set amidst nearly 3,000 acres of azure lakes and pristine preserves in Naples, FL.

Retirees who are relocating to Florida often dream of a waterfront home. While some debate the merits of living on the Atlantic or Gulf Coast, others turn to Florida’s stunning lakefront communities. With over 7,000 lakes spread throughout Florida, many active adult communities contain their own scenic, fishing or boating lakes, and homes with beautiful water views.

1. Lake Ashton

This premier Central Florida active adult community boasts a 26,000 square foot clubhouse, 30,000 square foot fitness center, two 18-hole golf courses, and Lake Ashton, its own lake with boat access. The scenic lakes of Lake Ashton West and Lake Heart, as well as multiple smaller lakes, provide beautiful views throughout the community. Additionally, residents enjoy the indoor and outdoor pools, a movie theater, a bowling alley, an indoor walking track, a basketball court, and many other amenities.

2. Solivita

Set in Poinciana, only 21 miles from Orlando, this Tuscan-themed active adult community is spread over 4,300 acres in Central Florida.

The Waterview Galleries is Solivita’s elegant 16,000-square-foot amenity center that overlooks the lake. It includes such features as ceramics and arts rooms, a computer lab, and a library.

3. Lely Resort

Located along the southwest coast in Naples, Lely Resort Golf and Country Club offers azure lakes, three championship golf courses, four clubhouses, and a state-of-the-art fitness center. Though not an age-restricted community, Lely Resort offers amenities that appeal to older active adults and retirees. Many of the residents are over the age of 55.

The 20,000-square-foot clubhouse offers such amenities as a club room, billiards hall, craft room, fitness center, and full-service spa. Lely Resort also includes a lush lagoon pool with waterfalls, a surrounding sun deck and a poolside Tiki Bar.
