Spotlight Features of the Community

Custom homes

In Nettles Island, every home is unique—and not every resident lives in a conventional single-family house. Here, it's not uncommon to find a multi-million dollar estate tucked near a small bungalow or even a Class A RV! Since the 1960s, vacationers and full-timers have made Nettles Island into the melting pot that it is today. And best of all, home prices here are surprisingly affordable despite the five-star location.

Unrivaled lifestyles

Nettles Island has truly maintained its resort-style atmosphere for the last five decades...with some improvements, of course! Monthly HOA dues grant you access to the island's deep-water marina, as well as two pools (one oceanfront), tennis courts, a community clubhouse, and a year-round calendar of events. Be sure to check out the assortment of clubs and the on-site snack bar, too!
