Fabulous community, people and amenities


My husband and I looked at many housing communities before deciding on Cascades. We love the sense of pride the owners have in their community. Everyone is very friendly and welcoming. Cascades offer beautiful homes with nice views, great amenities and lots of activities.


My wife and I have owned in this community for 12 years, we are snow birds and enjoy our winters at the Cascades in Estero. We love all the activities and amenities Cascades has to offer. It is a great location close to airport, shopping and beaches.


Cascades Estero is really wonderful! The clubhouse is so elegant and feels very high-end. We like that its a smaller, more private community yet it has fantastic amenities.
