Community Profile: IslandWalk

IslandWalk at West Villages Florida is always full of activity and fun. There are currently about 1,700 homes in this DiVosta-built community which began in 2005. Water is a key element in IslandWalk, in fact, almost every home site enjoys a water view. The Venetian-inspired bridges make it appealing for walkers, joggers and cyclists.

With two team members devoted to activities and events, there is a club or event to meet almost everyone’s interests. There are 12 main clubs, and more than 70 weekly activities, meaning each year there are more than 4,300 events and activities! We appreciate the West Villages Sun for covering so many of their activities and printing terrific photos.

A few weeks ago, Island Walk organized a breakfast for about 240 veterans and their guests in their event center. The Vettes for Vets program celebrated the contributions and sacrifices of our service members while displaying a fine representation of classic and new Corvettes. The goal of the group is to one day send a veteran on an Honor Flight to Washington, D.C.


The residents of IslandWalk are truly generous and gracious. They are involved in the community and care about many causes here. Together, through their fundraising efforts they have helped charities including All Faiths Food Bank, American Cancer Society, Parkinson Foundation, Mayor’s Food Drive for North Port, Toys for Tots and the Venice Symphony.

Because this community is so active, they are constructing their third clubhouse in their second amenity center. In addition to the clubhouse, there will be a resort pool with lap lanes, spa, basketball court, tot lot, eight pickle ball courts, community garden and dog park. Look for a grand opening in 2019!

If you’re not familiar with IslandWalk at West Villages, you may wish to visit our home search or visit Island Walk’s model center located at 13639 Salinas Street. There, you’ll find seven model homes to tour and explore. DiVosta opened its newest model, the Summerwood this fall. It is a three-bedroom-plus-den, two-bath home with raised ceilings, zero-corner sliders and custom pool and spa.

This community appeals to people who enjoy doing a little bit of everything or a lot of nothing. It’s the picture of living Life Your Way.™
