Verandah Overview

Verandah is a gated community alongside the Orange River in Fort Myers, Florida. Developed by Bonita Bay Group, this green living community opened in 2003, and will have approximately 1,700 homes upon completion.

With an emphasis on environmental preservation, Verandah's master-planned community sits on 1,456 acres of natural Florida landscape and encompasses nine miles of scenic walking trails. From hobby groups to exercise clubs, this neighborhood provides a social and active lifestyle that's perfect for any homebuyer.

Verandah Amenities

Unlike most clubhouses Verandah's amenity centers were designed with the natural ways of the land; by building separate structures connected by picturesque boardwalks and trails. Verandah's River Village is the center of all the community activities. Located on the banks of the Orange River, River Village consists of the clubhouse, Golf House, and River House. With numerous amenities at Verandah, all of your needs are met.

The clubhouse offers a state-of-the-art fitness center where residents maintain their physical well-being. This facility offers a group fitness studio, exercise room with both cardiovascular and strength equipment, locker rooms, a junior Olympic-sized outdoor pool, five lighted Har-Tru tennis courts and a tennis pro shop. Personal fitness training and tennis lessons are available as well. After a long day of working out, residents can stop by the day spa for massages, manicures and facials or kick back and relax with their pets at the gated dog park.

With two stunningly maintained 18-hole championship golf courses, Verandah is an ideal community for golf enthusiasts. The Golf House is home to a pro shop and two golf courses, the Old Orange and Whispering Oaks. The Old Orange is Verandah s first 18-hole championship golf course, which was designed by highly-respected golf architect, Bob Cupp. Whispering Oaks, an additional world-class golf course was designed by professional golfers Jack Nicklaus II and his father, Jack Nicklaus. Verandah s golf courses were created to weave in and around Fort Myers' natural land.

Verandah's River House Restaurant and River House Lounge are great spots where residents can enjoy a relaxing meal along the breathtaking Orange River. The River House also includes a canoe and kayak launch, which is a superb setting for fishing. This is a great location to host banquets, weddings, holiday parties, and special occasions.

Verandah is a beautiful place to live and is relatively close to everything! We love being out of the busyness of the city and have plenty of activities here. Really nice people live here!


  |   Rating

The homes here are a great price selling for about $100 a square foot right now. I just bought a place a few months ago and I'm very happy with the home, the community and the location. For everything you get here it's a great value. Golf, fitness center, swimming pool, trails and even restaurants right in the community. Very nice!
