What is Unique about Verandah?

While the community is open to all ages it offers several unique features which active adults will find appealing. First the community has a tremendous amount of open space dedicated to natural preserve and golf course. The nature trails and boardwalks, which meander over ponds, marshes and scenic views of the fairways and greens are so inviting to those that love to just get out and walk. The community has over 50 lakes and ponds, so scenic views and nature are among the top amenities in this wonderful community. Situated along the Orange River  the community has its own Kayak Launch. Golf Lovers will relish the two very challenging courses and residents will enjoy the onsite restaurant and lounge. While the community is rich in resort amenities, we think the natural setting, open spaces, scenic views, boardwalks and mother nature get top billing as most unique features.

Life at Verandah Fort Myers, Florida

Verandah is a master-planned and gated community situated in Ft. Myers, FL. There is no age restriction and was built as a sustainable and nature-friendly community that uses green building practices. Two thirds of the area has been preserved as open space that consists of wetlands, golf courses, 9 miles of trails, parks, natural preserve areas, and lakes. From exercise clubs to interest groups, the community offers a way of living that is rich in amenities for the young and the old.

Residents of Verandah have activities best suited for the SW Florida nature and its tropical climate, all of which are focused around a “social” clubhouse setting, where everyone can meet people and make new friends at all times.

The trails and boardwalks interconnect through a vast preserve that consists of acres of the meandering Orange River and the shady, old oaks where residents can kayak or fish among birds and manatee. Verandah lets you feel the nature at its finest.

Moreover, anyone can play tennis, do some weight training or play golf at any time. The amenities include a junior Olympic pool, spa, al fresco and indoor dining, 5 tennis courts, top-notch fitness center, River House lounge, Bob Cupp’s Old Orange, and Jack Nicklaus’ Whispering Oak courses. 

Verandah is filled with events and activities managed by an activities director. Excursions and onsite activities are both available for the residents. Also, the community has numerous social clubs for people having different interests, including mah jongg, photography, Bible study, Texas hold ‘em, horseback riding, bridge, technology class, art club, and photography. Community residents can also meet and participate in seminars, spring training games, trips to Broadway, and pub-crawls. All the residents have a laid-back, pleasant lifestyle with a lot of choices to keep them occupied and at the same time relaxed. Simply put, there is never a “hard and long day” at Verandah.

Industry Expert Review

Sprawling land plan over acres of golf course and natural preserve.  The developers did a great job in blending the neighborhoods into the natural areas giving residents lots of privacy and scenic views throughout.  Home buyers can choose from over 60 different floor plan designs most of which are ranch style or master on the main and ideal for active retirees. Homes are featured by several well known home builders such as DR Horton, Kolter, Neal Communities etc. Residents may also choose to build full custom homes priced from $300 to over $1M's.

Residents will appreciate The Shops at Verandah outside the entrance with Publix Supermarket, Walgreens and Regions Bank.
