The Growing Trend of Resort-Style Living: Minus The Tourists

Posted on by Laura Bernstein

In recent years, a noticeable shift in Florida real estate preferences has emerged, with an  increasing number of homebuyers seeking the active lifestyle and exclusivity of resort-style  communities that strictly prohibit vacation rentals. One shining example of this trend is Bear  Creek, a gated, non-tract home community on northwest Florida’s Emerald Coast. Let’s delve  into the allure and advantages of this growing trend, exploring why more people are opting for  resort-style living without the intrusion of short-term rentals. 

Exclusivity and Privacy: 

Resort-style communities like Bear Creek offer residents the dreamy lifestyle people pay to  enjoy for a short time while on vacation, but without being on vacation. Residents can enjoy the  amenities and ambiance without the transient nature of short-term visitors, fostering a stronger  sense of community. 

Amenities Tailored for Residents: 

Resort-style living goes beyond a mere swimming pools and tennis. Bear Creek’s dedication to  its residents is evident in its amenities, such as pickleball courts, tennis courts, a fitness center, a  basketball court, and an upcoming second resort-style pool with four additional pickleball courts.  While all of these amenities are great, they become less attractive when they are shared with  people using a community as a hotel. Bear Creek strives to ensure that residents and their invited  guests benefit from the amenities. 

Strategic Accessibility: 

Beyond the beauty of its surroundings, Bear Creek’s strategic location provides residents with  convenient access to highways, the international airport, schools, hospitals, and neighboring  coastal communities along Scenic Highway 30a, Panama City Beach, and Destin. Bear Creek  residents have everyday conveniences sand easy access to various popular communities along  the Emerald Coast such as Alys Beach, Rosemary Beach, Seaside, Watersound, and Watercolor.  Within the gates they live like they are on vacation, and that is also true for life outside of the  gates. This type of ‘every day is a celebration’ life is becoming increasingly desirable. As Florida  grows, the demand for communities with amenities only for residents grows with it. 

Commitment to Long-Term Community Building: 

Resort-style living comes with the added benefit of well-defined community governance and  regulations. This ensures that the community’s atmosphere aligns with residents’ expectations,  promoting a harmonious and enjoyable living environment for all. 

As the desire for resort-style living grows, unique communities like Bear Creek stand at the  forefront of this trend. The appeal lies not only in the luxurious amenities and beautiful  surroundings but also in the sense of permanence, community, and exclusivity that comes with a  prohibition on vacation rentals. Bear Creek exemplifies the essence of resort-style living without  compromise, making it a prime choice for those seeking an elevated, long-term lifestyle on the  world-famous Emerald Coast of Florida.
