Great Island is a premiere 55+ community for retirees dreaming of a tranquil Cape Cod lifestyle.

With a scenic setting in Plymouth, Massachusetts, Great Island lets active adults retire just outside of the lovely Cape Cod Bay. This Del Webb community offers tranquil grounds, resort-style amenities, and low-maintenance homes. The surrounding area features many shops and restaurants, as well as golf courses, coastal beaches, nature preserves and other local attractions.

Del Webb opened Great Island in 2002 and the community is still under development today. It is being specifically designed for active adults age 55 or better with low-maintenance homes built for main-level living. Upon completion, Great Island is excepted to contain about 600 residences in both attached and single-family styles. Current homebuyers can choose from available resale or new construction homes.

At the heart of the community, Great Island's private clubhouse invites residents to get to know their neighbors or mingle with friends in the comfortable Great Room. The hobby and game room is the perfect spot for a friendly game of cards or billiards, while the multipurpose room is a great place to take part in a special-interest club meeting. The spacious fitness room also features a variety of exercise equipment, as well as an indoor lap pool and spa area.


Great Island features a nice collection of outdoor recreations in a scenic, natural setting.

Outdoors, residents can enjoy a large patio outfitted with several sets of tables and chairs. There are also two bocce ball courts, two tennis courts, and winding trails for walking or biking. The 77-acre Great Island Lake further adds to the community's tranquil beauty.
