Beach Club completed at Harbour Isle
The club, which includes a sandy beach, will serve the residents of the development’s Members of the communities.
Island and Manatee chambers, local elected officials and guests joined officials from Minto Communities to cut the ribbon on the newly completed Beach Club at Harbor Isle on Friday. The club features an outdoor pool surrounded by lush vegetation, a cabana bar overlooking the pool, event and yoga lawns, a sandy beach, a luxury indoor lounge, an upstairs Sky Bar, all with unparalleled views of the surrounding waters.
A state of the art fitness center is located in an adjacent building. Senior Vice President William Bullock, who was unable to attend the event, said in a press release, “Minto has taken great care to assure that every design decision made at Harbour Isle maintains the integrity of this rare island location and the surrounding waters.
“For example, the Beach Club is located on a portion of the island that already provides unobstructed water views of Anna Maria Sound and Anna Maria Island. We were thoughtful on placement of the Beach Club, and chose a location that had a lack of shoreline vegetation, thus minimizing environmental impact.”
The Harbour Isle development includes two completed neighborhoods, Edgewater Walk and Mangrove Walk, with about 300 residents. Two of those are former Island residents, Karen Di Costanzo and JoAnn Lefner.
“We’ve been here almost a year,” Di Costanzo said. “I love it. The neighbors are wonderful.”
