Miromar Lakes Beach & Golf Club offers boating, beaches and golf in one location  a rare combination in Southwest Florida’s real estate market. Resort-style living is enhanced by five-star amenities catering to every desire: a 700-acre freshwater lake for watersports; three miles of private white-sand beach; three restaurants; tennis, bocce and pickleball; spa and fitness center; two marinas; and Southwest Florida’s only Arthur Hills Signature Championship golf course with a private members-only clubhouse. Featuring a statement-making entrance with sky-soaring royal palms set in white sand, tall manicured hedges, flowerbeds awash with color and the grandeur of a signature fountain  a local tourist attraction  Miromar Lakes makes a dramatic first impression and continues to wow throughout its 1,300 acres. Water, sand, billowing beach cabanas and catamarans bobbing in the water are introduced at the gates and set the stage for 14 miles of tree-canopied roads and sidewalks connecting neighborhoods to restaurants and amenities at the Beach Clubhouse, Blue Water Beach Grill, seven-court Tennis Club and The Marina on the Peninsula, a waterfront destination offering 30 boat slips, bocce courts, a firepit, entertainment pavilions, fitness stations and a parterre garden with a kinetic sculpture. Miromar Lakes has continuously evolved since its inception. Debuts in the last year include models with modern architecture, a lake-encircling Botanical Park with 5,000 plants and a lighted observation deck, two pickleball courts, and new neighborhoods offering mile-long water views  one with only six waterfront Grand Estate Homes; the second a mid-rise neighborhood of five buildings, 110 Penthouses and Waterfront Residences with its own marina, beach and private amenity island. The Beach Clubhouse and Blue Water Beach Grill are the heart of Miromar Lakes dynamic 365-days-a-year social scene where clubs, special events and daily happy hours create lifelong friendships. The clubhouse offers indoor and outdoor waterfront dining, a bar-lounge, private dining room, library, game room for billiards and cards, and a 50-seat theater. The open-air grill features casual dining along the beach, a full-service bar, elevated koi pond, marina and boat docks. Miromar Lakes also offers a European-style spa, full-service beauty salon, fitness center with new Power Plate machines, and a 10,000-square-foot zero-edge pool where food and beverages are delivered to deck chaises. Additional convenience is provided by Marine Services offering boat maintenance and rentals and Concierge Services which arranges housekeeping, car detailing and more. Miromar Lakes features an array of new home choices  Grand Estates, Beach Houses, floor-through Condominium Penthouses and Residences, Estates and single-family Villas. Many of them have lake access and docks. Arriving for happy hour or dinner by boat is just as common as walking or driving. Challenges presented by the coronavirus impacted home sales only momentarily. Newcomers and previous prospects quickly realized they wanted to fast-track their plans for retirement or purchasing a vacation home. Sales included five designer-furnished model homes offering immediate move-in. Total sales in 2020 are also outpacing 2019 and a multi-year trend continues  Miromar Lakes residents represent 57.8% of all sales.
