One of the original West Villages communities, Islandwalk by DiVosta Homes opened in 2006 before the onset of the Great Recession. DiVosta continued to build through the downturn and the market really started taking off again in 2011. One of the largest communities in the West Villages, Islandwalk currently builds maintenance free Villas from around $230K and single family residences starting at approximately $250K in a Resort Style environment. The CDD fee is the lowest in the West Villages at $622 annually. The amenities are very impressive and include a beach entry resort pool, separate lap pool, fitness center and movement studio. There is also an activities room, game room, library, catering kitchen, 8 tennis courts, sports courts, bocce ball courts, pickle ball courts, an outdoor fire pit, and an activities director to keep it all running. Like Sarasota National, the south side of Islandwalk backs up to the right of way for the likely Manasota Beach Rd extension which will make Islandwalk very convenient to Manasota Beach. Current drive times are 14 minutes to Manasota Beach, 18 to downtown Venice, 20 to Venice Beach, and about 45 minutes to Sarasota or SRQ airport.
