Harbour Isle is a gated active adult community in Bradenton, Florida on Anna Maria Sound.

Situated on a small barrier island near Holmes Beach and the Anna Maria Sound, Harbour Isle is an ideal destination for active adults looking for Florida retirement communities who long for tropical living on the coast. Gorgeous grounds feature palm trees, a large lake, and a mangrove preserve. Though this new community is open to residents of all ages, its luxurious homes and spectacular location in the Sarasota-Bradenton area will appeal to many older homeowners. 

The Minto Group began construction on Harbour Isle in 2010 with plans for a total of 686 attached homes in sizes ranging from 1,621 to over 2,600 square feet. Construction is still underway, giving buyers the chance to have homes built to suit their own styles. This ability to pick and choose is not available at the majority of active adult communities in Florida. Homebuyers who want to move in more quickly can choose from available new inventory or resale homes.


Harbour Isle’s stunning location is the perfect setting for resort-style living, which the builder plans to deliver with many proposed amenities. While the community is still under construction, the Mangrove Walk Pool and Kayak Launch are now open. These tranquil outdoor areas feature a swimming pool surrounded by a spacious sundeck and curtained cabanas. There are locker rooms for men and women, a kitchen and barbecue area, tables for outdoor dining and a stone fire pit. A dock extends to a boathouse and kayak launch, the perfect spot for a sack lunch or picnic with the grandkids.


Harbour Isle residents have access to the Harbour Isle Marina just steps from their homes.

The striking guardhouse at Harbour Isle’s gated entry features an observation tower with impressive views of the Anna Maria Sound and the Gulf of Mexico. Beyond the tower, a palm-lined drive stretches alongside a 2-mile walking trail that winds its way around the island. A 38-acre lake and a mangrove preserve enhance the island’s natural beauty. Proposed plans for additional amenities at Harbour Isle include designs for a spacious beach club and a full-service marina. Assuredly, these are amenities not all Florida retirement communities possess.


The luxurious homes in Harbour Isle offer southern coastal resort-style architecture and the finest in waterfront living. New homes include four floor plans within the Seascape home series and seven floor plans in the Inland home series. Seascape homes feature two bedrooms and a den, or three bedrooms, as well as two or three full bathrooms. Most homes in the Inland series offer three bedrooms and a den, along with three bathrooms. Homes in either series have two-car garages.

Harbour Isle’s homes are designed with main-level-living in mind.  Open floor plans and spacious master-bedroom suites appeal to active adults looking for maintenance-free lifestyles. Every home in this Florida retirement community is attached and constructed with single-floor layouts as either an upper or lower unit. Upper units have garages on the ground floor with dumbwaiters or optional elevators leading to the living level.

Active adults looking for Florida retirement communities and luxurious island-living in a tropical paradise are sure to be impressed with the beauty of Harbour Isle.
