MiraBay Overview

Situated amidst the sparkling waters of Tampa Bay, Florida and among the scenery of the 1,300-acre Wolf Branch Creek Nature Preserve, MiraBay welcomes residents of all ages.

I love Mirabay!!! The people are great and the community is beautiful. The amenities are better than any hotel or community I have ever been to. The community pool has a big water slide that my kids love to go down a 100 times!!! The pool is big enough to have your own private area. The club house offers a variety drinks and food. The community is always doing this together for example we just had a Fall Festival with food trucks and activities for the kids. Let's not forget its water front community so you can always just jump on your boat and go to Tampa in 20 min or St Pete. In my opinion this is an up and coming community. I love it here!!!!

Just a note to comment on the review left on June 24, 2013 by Alan R.

This community is in Apollo Beach, FL, and sits adjacent to Tampa Bay, not the Gulf of Mexico.

MiraBay has an amazing location right on the Gulf. We love being right on the water, for me it is the best part of the community. You can get nice amenities anywhere but you can't find waterfront living that easy. Combine both and you've got MiraBay. Alan
