Estero is an ideally located unincorporated area in south Lee County bordered by Ft. Myers to the north and Bonita Springs to the south. The heart of Estero is the spring-fed Estero River which flows to Estero Bay. Home to Coconut Point, a large shopping center, Estero has become a destination for residents of both Fort Myers and Naples.
Estero was a quiet and sleepy river town of predominantly single family residential properties. However, this once desolate area is now also home to Germain Arena, Miromar Outlets and Design Center, and Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort and Spa. Just a few minutes away from Estero is Florida Gulf Coast University and the SW Florida International Airport.
Over 10,000,000 square feet of commercial real estate space and 11,000 housing units are now being developed and Estero is experiencing a new change to its quiet beginnings. Development in Estero is controlled by Lee County with special amendments for area. You can find every type of community being built in the Estero real estate market, from large gated communities to small town centre type projects built around a self-contained lifestyle. Estero is one of the last areas to be developed in south Lee County and purchasing real estate property here may be very fortunate for future owners.Estero offers excellent schools, shopping, restaurants and year-round sunshine.
