From the moment you enter this first-floor (over garage) Castella residence you’re welcomed with warm colors & timeless décor. The open plan allows for entertaining family & friends with ease. The screened lanai is among the largest in the community & offers a tranquil setting for that morning cup of coffee while you listen to the birdlife in the preserve area. New Storm Smart shutters allow storm protection while letting the light in. Offered furnished, all you need is a toothbrush & your swimsuit as Castella offers arguably the best, resort-style pool for enjoying the sun or napping in the shade with a comfortable beach entry for the little ones. The Colony Golf & Bay Club offers a private beach island, canoe and kayak, pickleball, bocce and tennis, all included in your monthly fees – no additional membership is required. Optional memberships are available at 2 golf clubs, The Colony & Pelican’s Nest (please contact membership directors for availability and potential wait lists). The Colony Bay Club is exclusive to Colony residents with spectacular views overlooking Estero Bay. Area restaurants and entertainment are 5 minutes away and SWFL airport is a quick 20-minute drive!
