Average Rating for this Community

Resident since 2019. Great community with great people and amenities. Close to everything in Central Florida.


I love my lake front home at Royal Harbor! I always wanted to live on the water and it's hard to find a home in a 55+ community with all the amenities PLUS have a home right on the water. The views are fantastic, the amenities are nice, the community is quiet and we couldn't be happier!
