Courtyard Living Brings The Outside – Inside!


Taking advantage of the fantastic Winter Weather down here on the Gulf Coast of Florida is made all the easier by living in one of our delightful Courtyard Homes. We Just did a photo shoot on a glorious February morning of three unique courtyard homes here at Coral Caye to let you see how you can take full advantage of the Florida Sunshine!

The proud owners were more than happy to show off how they have adapted these unique floor-plans to maximize their enjoyment of the community they now call home. From the street you would never know what surprises lie behind these beautiful front doors. And the possibilities are truly endless when you see the very different presentations of these three courtyards.

A bit of Nature, a bit of Fun and a bit of Warmth all combine to showcase individual tastes that are as entertaining as they are relaxing. So take a look at the possibilities that you could have in your new home.

End of Summer Pool Party


You will have to forgive us if we seem to be bragging a bit in regards to our great weather down here in Placida. As we are starting out December with wonderful temperatures in the mid 80’s we can’t help reminiscing about the outdoor fun we have here at Coral Caye. As a celebration of another great Summer, our residents threw a Pool Party at the end of September in our great Community Clubhouse and a Swimmingly Good Time Was Had By All!

We have room for you to join them, so pay us a visit this Winter and pick a great spot for your next home!
