Inspired by the breezy and laid-back atmosphere of old-fashioned Florida beach towns, the gated waterfront community of MiraBay offers a unique blend of coastal architecture, upscale amenities and first-class services in a relaxed and connected community located central to the vibrant Gulf Coast cities of Tampa, Sarasota and St. Petersburg.
MiraBay harbors a beautiful selection of single-family homes and elegant custom estates surrounding a 135-acre saltwater lagoon, with private fitness, swimming and tennis facilities, a spacious community clubhouse and a 1,000-acre virgin mangrove forest reserve. Many homes offer direct canal or lagoon frontage and backyard boat docks, while all MiraBay residents enjoy easy access to world-class boating and fishing on Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico.
The community is close to some of Florida's finest beaches, and to a full spectrum of cultural activities, recreational attractions and sporting events in the Tampa Bay metropolitan area. Send me information now!
