GMCG is pleased to announce our two new and exciting, latest and greatest, waterfront projects.
One of Southwest Florida’s best kept secrets is a hidden island retreat named Boca Grande. Located on Gasparilla Island, which is a barrier island off the Cape Haze Peninsula, this quiet, family-oriented community embodies small town America, and is rich in history. The residents of the town relish the Old Florida lifestyle, and the fact that there are no traffic lights, billboards, fast food chains or even a gas station. Most residents travel around the town in golf carts, which even outnumber the cars.
The quaint island lifestyle offers walking paths, the Boca Grande Bike Trail, expansive white sand beaches, fishing and boating excursions, as well as championship golf courses. The charming town offers casual and fine dining featuring “just caught” seafood, ice cream shops, art galleries and boutiques. For those who like to be well-connected, there are three prestigious private clubs to enjoy social events and recreational activities.
Although Boca Grande is one of Florida’s least known secluded hideaways, there is one activity that Boca Grande is famous for: world-class tarpon fishing. Every May and June, a “hill tide phenomenon” occurs when the tides flush out the crabs and the tarpons enjoy a feeding-frenzied feast.
Given this idyllic island setting and lifestyle, GMCG is proud to be the first to begin construction in the newest and most exclusive waterfront community on the island – Hill Tide Estates. Located on the southern tip of the island, Hill Tide Estates is a ten acre, gated enclave with views of Charlotte Harbor, Boca Grande Pass, the Gulf of Mexico, and the Port Boca Grande Lighthouse. The community features only nineteen single family luxury home sites, offering a unique form of privacy, exclusivity and seclusion. To maintain the character and charm of the island, all of the luxury homes will be custom designed according to guidelines established by the island’s architectural standards. Distinctive amenities of the community include paver streets, a parking area for golf carts, a beachfront tiki hut, an observation pier, a community boat dock with lifts, and a boardwalk to the lighthouse.
