About Us
A Small Community; A Large Family
     Plantation Estates is not a "normal" mobile home park in Ft. Myers.  It is not "normal" because it has only 151 units. Many mobile home parks in the area consist of hundreds of units, and many must rent their lots on a monthly basis.  Everyone gets to know everyone here and that makes for a nice, friendly atmosphere. 

     The main reason for a nice, friendly atmosphere is because the founders of the park, around 1979, were nice, friendly people who encouraged their family and friends to settle here, if only on a seasonal basis.  Obviously, their family and friends were nice, friendly people as well.  And the generations move on.

     Remember when we were kids and our parents would sometimes reprimand us with the words, “If you are going to be a member of this family, you’re going to do your share around here.”

     Well guess what?  For many people in Plantation Estates, that bit of parental wisdom has stuck with us for decades.  Everywhere one walks in P.E. we see the results of where a member or members has/have been doing his or her “share”.  And what a remarkable community that has made.  The remarkable part is that no matter the problem; whether it is with our pool, our sewer system, our streets or our club house, constructing a brick marquee for the club house, organizing our library with dozens of books and VCR tapes, a quality monthly newsletter or keeping the entrance to our park beautiful, there is someone in the park who takes the leadership and knows how to get the job done.  All of our board members, as well as our Activity and Corporation Directors are all volunteers.

     It has been proven time and again, that the real strength of Plantation Estates is the willingness of people with a myriad of skills that use them on a regular volunteer basis.  And when most of us are in other latitudes during the summer, our permanent residents are on call 24/7, doing whatever needs doing.  
     Inviting activities include: the swimming pool, shuffle boarding, cards, bingo, cycling, karaoke and monthly breakfasts and pot-lucks, as well as many holiday parties at the club house.
     Plantation Estates may not be Paradise in the biblical sense, but it’s surely the nearest we will get to it until that happens.
