The Islands on the Manatee River #E

The Islands on the Manatee River is a unique luxury boating community located directly on the Manatee River and nestled among world class golf courses. Residents enter The Islands from the Fort Hamer Bridge via the community’s 24 hour manned gated entry. Consisting of three private islands, all direct riverfront and harbor homesites are pre-approved for boat docks. The perfect time to visit is now while they celebrate the Grand Opening of the final phase in Rio Vista Estates. This exclusive island neighborhood features its own gated entry and 100-year-old antique brick streets along with the largest estate sized homesites of up to 1.5 acres on the Manatee River and direct access to the Gulf of Mexico and beyond. Now over 50% sold-out, homesites in the final phase include breathtaking riverfront views and Channelside Lake with its private direct cut to the Manatee River and no bridges. Best of all, you can now select a builder from our Preferred Builder Team or, if you desire, bring in your own builder to design and construct your dream home. During your visit, you will also want to experience all the amenities at The Islands including the Dutch West Indies styled River Lodge, where residents and their guests can gather for happy hour to eat and drink, play games, or watch collegiate rowing teams training on the river. In addition to a community day dock and launch, the facility includes an inviting great room with a grand fireplace, a bar area, large-screen televisions, card tables, and a catering kitchen. A state-of-the-art fitness center is available, along with an oversized patio with comfortable seating, outdoor fire pit, bocce ball court, putting green and barbecue area.
