by Islands

KayakingGated communities offer many advantages for their residents. Within the confines of each community, you'll often find benefits waiting for you that can't be equaled if you live in a home that stands on its own. In fact, these communities offer so many positive attributes, it's a wonder that you would want to live anywhere else!

Here are a few reasons why a gated community ranks highly among residents:

Planned Layout

Gated communities are built around the residents’ needs and lifestyles. As such, you’ll typically find layouts that are planned around ease of mobility with walk paths, bike paths, easy access to the water, and well-maintained roads that make it easy to get from here to there.

Beautiful Scenery

Typically, you’ll find gated communities in areas that are surrounded by natural beauty. Rather than residing in a multi-unit building in the city, you’ll have a single-family home all to your own. You’ll find lush green lawns in place of the concrete you’ll find within the confines of the city. The world beyond the gates is just an extension of your own front yard.

Safety & Security

By nature, gated communities are intended to ward off the unwanted. With limited access from the surrounding area, you’ll sleep sounder, knowing that your property is enjoying a certain amount of protection that simply cannot be obtained by a home that stands on its own.

Activities & Amenities

Communities such as these often have many activities built in. At The Islands on the Manatee River, the possibilities are virtually endless. No matter what your interests, there are sure to be tons of things to keep you entertained. This is just a quick look at some of the fun waiting for you:
