This captivating community is a sanctuary, a haven of natural beauty and up-to-date amenities. The Estero River is a scenic ribbon of fresh water that threads to Estero Bay, a treasured and protected aquatic preserve. Native trees dapple the sunlight along its route, wrapping visitors in the sounds of nature. Egrets and herons tiptoe through the shallows undisturbed while roseate spoonbills sweep the waters for bits of food. During spring mating season the spoonbills are a wonder to watch as their feathers blush pink against the late afternoon sun.
Estero nurtures nature in an area of Southwest Florida that the native residents from deer to raccoons, songbirds to butterflies call home.
