Sarasota: Where the Heart Is

WCI Communities: Where the Heart Is

Founded in 1995, WCI Communities, Inc. has developed master-planned communities that house more than 150,000 people throughout Florida today. With guiding principles of innovation and leadership, WCI creates more than just homes. They create communities and lifestyles for their homeowners.

One such community is Venetian Golf & River Club, located in Venice, Florida, along the Gulf Coast. There you will find amenities such as a golf course and river walk. At the Venetian River Club, all your social needs will be met, with activities ranging from tennis and swimming to fine dining. The River Walk is in the middle of the 70-acre Nature Park located at the Venetian Golf and River Club. There, you can peacefully meander along the path, shaded by the canopy of trees, observing the diverse species of animals and plants.

Also in Venice, Florida is a WCI community called Sarasota National. This community offers a variety of homes and amenities to truly give you the feel of resort living. Whether your sport is golf or tennis, you can enjoy a good game and get your exercise. In addition, Sarasota National offers access to beautiful, white, sandy beaches, where you can relax or go out on a boat. If you’re eager to explore the local nature, you may see exotic birds, deer, or even otters as you walk along the boardwalks at Sarasota National.

Another WCI community, located in Fort Myers, Florida along the Gulf of Mexico, is Pelican Preserve. There, you will find a variety of home styles, from chateau homes and cottage homes to villas and grand villas. The social hub of Pelican Preserve is the Plaza del Sol. There, you will find such amenities as a luxury spa, movie theater, fitness center, outdoor amphitheater, and fine dining. The nature surrounding Pelican Preserve includes 38 rolling acres along an observation boardwalk. This natural landscape is a great place for bird watching, as well as simply taking a casual stroll.

WCI makes it their mission to deliver not only excellent homes, but also an excellent life experience. If you’re looking to retire to the Gulf Coast of Florida, consider a WCI community. Whether you are attracted to River Walk of Venetian homes, the sandy beaches of Sarasota National, or the great amenities at Pelican Preserve’s Plaza del Sol, you will find that each community has something unique and special to offer you. And it doesn’t get much better than living in a warm, coastal climate where you can relax in the sunshine, play a round of golf, or just bask in the beauty of the great outdoors.
