Hi Pete, What is your budget for the monthly or quarterly HOA fee? There are really nice gated communities East of Turnpike as Santa Barbara, Royal Poinciana, Paseos, New Port Bay, Balba Point, Boca Preserve...Also a price range would be really helpful determining it. You can reach me at email@example.com or http://www.karinaleal.com
There are courtyard homes in Boca for sale in the Seasons, Grand Cay Estates (blocks from the beach) and The Preserve which are gated, non-equity communities (this is from a "quick" search). There are also homes in gated, non-equity communities that are not courtyard homes but are just as beautiful. I hope this helps.
With a very thorough MLS search I found two that have the criteria you mention above, Pete. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you those listings. Happy to help you find the home of your dreams... already found two! At FLWaterfrontCondos.com you can register and put in the criteria above and you will get all NEW listings that fit the criteria you put in. Best wishes... it is out there!
