Lush Resort of Lighthouse Bay at the Brooks in Pretty Bonita Springs, Florida Has Low Maintenance Lakefront Homes, a Private Beach, a Nature Preserve and is Popular with Baby Boomers
Tucked between Fort Myers and well-to-do Naples on Florida's southwestern coast, pretty Bonita Springs caters to second home owners and retirees. It is the setting for Lighthouse Bay at the Brooks, a gated, resort-style lakefront community that is part of a larger master-planned development. Although Lighthouse Bay is open to people of all ages, it is with baby boomers and has 650 low maintenance condominiums, coach homes, villas and carriage homes.
Lighthouse Bay was developed by Wallace Homes from 2000 to 2004 and is designed so that each residence overlooks one of 13 fishing lakes that are scattered throughout the nicely manicured surroundings. All residences are Mediterranean-style with a stucco exterior and a red tile roof.
The condos have two bedrooms, two baths and approximately 1,250 square feet to 1,365 square feet. They also have a detached carport.
The coach homes have three bedrooms, two baths and approximately 1,355 square feet to 1,650 square feet. They, too, have a detached carport.
The courtyard villas are duplexes with two to three bedrooms, two baths and approximately 1,785 square feet to 1,960 square feet. Instead of a carport, they have an attached two car garage, a private patio and a small glass-enclosed swimming pool.
The carriage homes are the largest residences, and they have two to three bedrooms, two baths and an attached garage large enough for one or two cars. These homes and the coach homes have a second story.
Current home prices start in the high-$200,000s, but properties often come up for sale in the high-$100,000s and low-$200,000s. Please check with a Realtor to verify these prices as they may change.
With its tropical setting, plentiful vegetation, narrow walkways, bridges and fountains, Lighthouse Bay is an inviting place. It also has excellent amenities, including five swimming pools (one is lagoon-shaped with a spa). There is also a lap pool and a sauna. The Har Tru tennis courts, a fitness center and three miles of walking pathes are futher ways to stay in shape. The clubhouse has a full time activities director, and groups and events are many. The tennis club is particularly active.
The private beach features a boat dock with paddle boats. Fishermen often take advantage of the stocked lakes. The 26-acre nature preserve lends a sense of serenity and is a favorite wintering ground for numerous bird species.
Bonita Springs is along Estero Bay and the Gulf of Mexico, with the nine-mile long Imperial River running through the middle of downtown. A nearby barrier island has several beachfront parks, including Bonita Beach Park, which has sand dunes, swimming areas and a boardwalk. Nearby Barefoot Beach Preserve Park has often been named one of the best beaches in the nation.
The city does not have a hospital of its own, but Physicians Regional is 14 miles away in Naples and is accredited by the Joint Commission.
Summer temperatures are in the 80s and 90s, and winter temperatures are in the 50s, 60s and 70s. On average, Bonita Springs receives 53 inches of rain per year.
