Why live in Shelter Cove?
Though not on the 'ocean side', Shelter Cove is certainly water-oriented. There is a beautiful harbour where both private and commercial boats are all parked. There are boats of all shapes and sizes from small craft and jet-skis that you can rent for a day, to large pleasure craft, and small cruise boats that will take you dolphin watching or deep-sea fishing. The state education boat occasionally stops by and children are invited to learn all about the environment and the critical relationship our island has with all of the waterways.
The walkability index is becoming more and more important to people and Shelter Cove scores very well. With the brand new Kroger Town Center less than 1 mile away, you can easily ride your bicycle over to pick up anything you need. For fun, there are restaurants along the harbour as well as on the other side of the street in Palmetto Dunes.
If you become a property owner in Shelter Cove, it entitles you to use all of the amenities, including the Dunes Buggy which will take you anywhere within Palmetto Dunes, as well as the beach house and pools.
