When the islands beckon, the Manatee river leads you home.

It’s a brand new day at The Islands.  The new Fort Hamer Bridge will soon bring Lakewood Ranch, I-75 and Sarasota within minutes of our secluded gated paradise of expansive 1/2 acre plus home sites that allow for individual private boat docks with nearly every home.  It’s the highly sought after waterfront estate home lifestyle you’ve always imagined, without compromise.

Welcome to The Islands on the Manatee River, a gated waterfront community that celebrates Florida’s natural beauty and everything new for 2016.  We’ve just released Harbourside, our highly-acclaimed estate home neighborhood featuring new builders, new coastal architecture and new home designs.  Our new River House resident club is also underway, providing a waterfront gathering place for the enjoyment of our residents.

The Islands is a place where nature’s bounty is just the beginning of the excitement that will take your breath away.  Situated on 225-acres of pristine islands, our private sanctuary features estate-sized home sites with picturesque harbors and navigable access to the tranquil waters of the Manatee River.  It’s an ideal place for birding, fishing, wildlife photography, kayaking, boating and more. No where else will you find the unique combination of estate homesites with private docks with direct access to the Gulf of Mexico and our spectacular waterfront River House. Conveniently located near some of the finest golf course communities on Florida’s west coast, residents have their choice of memberships in several private country clubs with a championship golf course, tennis, fitness & more.

The Islands on the Manatee River is one of the premier new home communities located in the heart of the beautiful Florida Suncoast, the central and southwest coast of Florida that borders the Gulf of Mexico. This region is known for its beaches and coastal cities, and is a prime getaway for people looking for great weather in winter months.

The Islands on the Manatee River is only minutes from many of the beaches centered around The Gulf, and is within convenient driving distance to cities such as Sarasota, Lakewood Ranch, Bradenton, St. Petersburg, Tampa and many other desirable Florida destinations.
