Tortoise Island Florida Homes For Sale - Satellite Beach, FL …….SEARCH HOMES –►
Tortoise Island FL is a private luxury gated community located in Satellite Beach, Florida. The exclusive community was the first island development created in Brevard County FL but remains popular both because of its amazing waterfront location between the beautiful sandy beaches and Indian and Banana Rivers, and the splendor of the Tortoise Island homes and community as a whole.
Tortoise Island FL is ideally located between two of the area’s major causeways in and out of the barrier island – Pineda and Eau Gallie causeways. The Pineda Causeway (direct route into Satellite Beach) extension to I95 finally opened in December 2011 providing even quicker transportation throughout the area, to the beaches of Satellite Beach, and to and from Orlando. Tortoise Island FL ‘s location within the very popular coastal city of Satellite Beach makes it close to everything, but its main draw is the more than thirty miles of beautiful sunny, sandy beaches. Satellite Beach owns approximately 1/3 of the beach front property and sets it aside for community use, limiting condo development. Also, Satellite Beach’s schools are A-rated, both academically and athletically.
Cocoa Beach is only a 15 minute drive north, just past Patrick Air Force Base. Orlando International Airport and the Kennedy Space Center are less than an hour’s drive. And the Melbourne International Airport is only 20 minutes away. The residents of Tortoise Island Florida homes also enjoy the unique opportunity to literally watch the Cape Canaveral/NASA rocket launches from the comfort of their own yards.
Tortoise Island Florida is almost completely developed these days; only a handful of undeveloped lots remain. The majority of Tortoise Island homes for sale boast either navigable canal or river front back yards and docks, for perfect waterfront home living.
The Tortoise Island home community is an active one. A central clubhouse boasts a game room, fitness center, saunas, large entertainment complex, as well as a public pool (even though most of the luxury waterfront homes in the community have their own). The entertainment room is available for rent to any member of the community and has played host to hundreds of weddings, graduation parties and family reunions over the years.
Like most people living in Brevard County FL, outdoor pursuits are usually a big part of the lives of Tortoise Island Florida home owners of all ages. The local opportunities for all types of outdoor recreation are abundant both within the exclusive community itself (the tennis courts are excellent as they were completely renovated in 2009) and nearby, like the Satellite Beach Skate Park and along the Erna Nixon Nature Trail.
