Minto’s Harbour Isle wins “Best Overall Community” award for fifth year

Bradenton, FL, March 10, 2016 — For the fifth straight year, Harbour Isle, a community of luxury island coach homes and resort homes by Minto Communities, won “Best Overall Community” and “Best Amenities” awards at the Manatee-Sarasota Building Industry Association’s (MSBIA) 2016 Parade of Homes awards banquet on March 3. Harbour Isle is a 220-acre island living community located directly across from Anna Maria Island on Anna Maria Sound in Bradenton, Florida.

A grand opening for Marina Walk, Minto’s third neighborhood at Harbour Isle, will be held on April 2. Minto’s first two Harbour Isle neighborhoods — Mangrove Walk and Edgewater Walk — sold out soon after opening.

Marina Walk’s new Nautical Series Home Collection includes the Mariner, Nautica and Oceana floor plans, plus the Mariner Penthouse. All Marina Walk resort homes will have magnificent views of Anna Maria Sound or the Harbour Isle lagoon. Priced from the $500s, these one-story homes range from 1,483 square feet under air to 1,650 square feet under air.

Marina Walk floor plans include two-bedroom/two bath and three-bedroom/three bath selections, and feature luxurious master suites with spacious walk-in closets. Expansive gourmet kitchens include large serving and seating islands and open to dramatic living room and dining room areas. Expansive screened lanais provide outdoor living space and take full advantage of the spectacular water views.

While Marina Walk will have its own, private resort-style pool, shade pavilion, splash zone and recreation area with tot lot, homeowners also will enjoy the new 23,000-square-foot Beach Club at Harbour Isle.

The recently completed, two-story Beach Club is sited directly on Anna Maria Sound. Amenities include a sandy beach recreation area for launching kayaks and paddleboards, 4,200-square-foot fitness center, second floor Sky Bar Lounge, Cabana Bar, resort-style pool, Jacuzzi, private lounging cabanas, yoga lawn and event lawn. The Beach Club architecture complements the Harbour Isle community’s southern coastal-style architecture and design. Each neighborhood in Harbour Isle also has its own, private amenities that include four resort-style pools, and a marina with wet and dry storage, restaurants, shops and more is planned.

Harbour Isle has been developed without utilizing Community Development District (CDD) funding. This means residents won't see annual CDD assessments on their tax bill, which saves them thousands of dollars over the life of their home.

Harbour Isle is located at 12300 Manatee Avenue West in Bradenton, Florida. The Harbour Isle sales center is open Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Sunday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. For information, call 888-827-3061 or visit
