Punta Gorda Isles is a boater’s paradise. The deed-restricted, waterfront community offers 45 miles of canals, each with a minimum width of 100 feet. These canals lead out to Charlotte Harbor and the Gulf of Mexico. Most residents live on waterfront property with their boat docked out back ready to take them into some of the most beautiful waterways in Florida.

Non-waterfront homeowners walk out their back door to St. Andrews golf course. Whether you have your boat or your favorite green in your backyard, life is good in PGI.

Canals and seawalls are cared for by the city of Punta Gorda’s Canal Maintenance program. Home pricing varies in Punta Gorda Isles due to many factors, such as the home’s age, time to the Harbor, view, and seawall size. From 1,800 sq ft. bungalows to 4,000+ sq ft. double-lot homes, PGI presents an array of choices for the homebuyer.

The PGI community dates back to 1957. Developed in sections, the newest area opened in 1981. Vacant lots remain available throughout all sections of PGI. All vacant land is privately owned and sold.

Residents and homebuyers in the area may find the following organizations useful:

Punta Gorda Isles Civic Association (PGICA): With over 20 social clubs and a host of community activities, the PGICA is an invaluable resource for PGI residence looking to meet new people and get involved.

St. Andrews South Golf Club: This 18 hole, par 71 golf course provides a challenge for golfers of all handicaps. St. Andrews South has 15 lakes and 48 sand bunkers that make every round interesting. In 1981, Ron Garl, a prominent Florida course architect, designed the 6103-yard course. St. Andrews South is a private club owned by its members. It purposely keeps its membership at fewer than 300, lower than any other club in southwest Florida, to ensure there are always tee times available.

Burnt Store Isles (BSI) combines the luxury of gorgeous canal views with the fun of living around a golf course. In the center of this deed-restricted community sits Twin Isles Country Club. While the club is optional to join, many residents delight in docking their boat outside their back door before stepping out their front door for a round of 18 holes.

Punta Gorda’s Canal Maintenance program maintains the canals and seawalls for property owners. The canals lead to Alligator Creek which leads out into Charlotte Harbor.

Smaller than Punta Gorda Isles, Burnt Store Isles contains about 1,000 waterfront properties and 400 golf course properties. Residences include single-family homes, condos, and villas. There are some vacant lots still available. Home styles range from modern Florida-styles to modest bungalows to upscale, Mediterranean styles.

Homebuyers have several opportunities to get involved in the BSI community:

Burnt Store Isles Association (BSIA): Membership to the property owners association, the BSIA, is voluntary. Like most BSI residents, the association takes great pride in the area and works to continually maintain and improve the Burnt Store Isles landscape and social appeal.
