Active adults who want maintenance-free living in the heart of Fort Myers, Florida, may find their dream home at Palmetto Cove. This luxury condo community offers a tranquil retreat that is within easy reach of Southeast Florida’s many shops, restaurants and attractions. Its on-site amenities help support an active adult lifestyle, although the community is open to residents of all ages.

Opened in 2007, by McCann Development, Palmetto Cove offers affordable, yet luxurious condos which are ideal for active adult retirees. Plans for the gated community include 204 condos in 14 two-story buildings, as well as an inviting clubhouse where residents can gather with friends or make use of the available amenities.


Palmetto Cove’s versatile condos are available in two different floor plans: the Begonia and the Azalea. Each model comes with one detached garage and carport, courtyard access, and a private lanai. At 1,200 square feet, the Begonia’s open floor plan features a spacious master bedroom suite with a walk-in closet and luxurious bathroom, as well as a guest suite with its own walk-in closet and direct access to the secondary full bathroom.

Homebuyers who want a larger home can opt for the 1,548 square-foot Azalea model. This similarly designed floor plan also features an upscale master bedroom suite with a generous walk-in closet and spa-like bathroom. Yet the larger size allows space for both a second and third bedroom, which can easily accommodate guests or be used as a home office or hobby room. The private lanais on each model are accessible from both the living room and master bedroom. By choosing a condo at Palmetto Cove, residents don’t have to worry about yard work or exterior home maintenance. A low monthly homeowners’ association (HOA) fee covers upkeep of the community’s common areas, as well as basic cable and Internet and access to the clubhouse.


Currently, homebuyers can choose from available new construction and resale homes. As the hub of community activity, the Palmetto Cove clubhouse welcomes residents with a sunny interior that feels like a home away from home. The facility provides ample space for planned events and informal gatherings, with a large multipurpose room, and catering kitchen. Residents can also make use of cardiovascular and strength-training equipment in the fitness room, or curl up with a good book in the cozy library.

A casual outdoor swimming pool is the perfect spot to relax in the warm Florida sunshine.

The clubhouse also helps residents enjoy the beautiful Florida weather with a covered patio and an outdoor swimming pool surrounded by a spacious sundeck. Residents can barbecue with friends and family, cool off with a refreshing swim or simply relax in the poolside lounge chairs.

The community is a great option for snowbirds or for those who dream of a Florida retirement, but don’t want the cost or responsibility of a single-family home. For more information on this community click here: Palmetto Cove – Fort Myers, FL
