The Dunes is the largest residential community on Sanibel Island. This is a great community to live in if you are hoping to enjoy a game of golf and get to know people in the community. It features 333 acres developed in 1981. It also features over 5600 yards of manicured greens, a fantastic golf course, and a tennis club. The community borders a nature preserve and because of this, it is not uncommon to see native wildlife and birds including bald eagles, Osprey, and blue herons. The Dunes golf course is a par 70 surrounded by scenic lakes and lush fairways. If you enjoy tennis there are 14 Har-Tru tennis courts and a full-service pro shop. The Dunes Club clubhouse has a steak and seafood restaurant, beautiful views of the golf course, a heated swimming pool, and deeded beach access.
There are a total of 377 homes in the community including duplex units and single-family estate homes. Most homes are nestled around the golf course. Properties start at about $1 million. Each home is unique and custom-built with two and three-story designs, custom cabinetry throughout the home, beautiful quartz or granite counters, and lots of unique finishes and luxury materials.
Some might not consider this a golf community because it is not officially on the golf course and homeownership does not come with automatic possible membership possibilities. But the community does neighbor the Beachview Estates CC neighborhood and is close to the Sanibel Island Golf Club. It is also closer to the ocean beaches just across the street. It is located between the beach and Beachview Estates on Middle Gulf Drive.
