Del Webb, the nationwide pioneer of active adult communities, is preparing to bring its vibrant, resort-inspired lifestyle to North Fort Myers. Del Webb Oak Creek, one mile west of I-75 near Southwest Florida’s beaches and attractions, opens for sale in Summer 2022 and will feature over 900 newly constructed single family homes surrounded by a carpet of sparkling lakes, nature preserves, mature gardens wooded hammocks and a five-acre recreational campus.
“We are excited to introduce Del Webb Oak Creek to the area, a special community that offers a new way of life, not just a place to live,” said Richard McCormick, area president of PulteGroup’s Florida Divisions. “Residents will experience our unparalleled commitment to an active, engaged and neighborly lifestyle in a beautiful setting full of amenities. Homebuyers also benefit from Del Webb’s 70-year history of building homes that are designed for how they live today, with the features that matter most.”
Del Webb Oak Creek is in full swing with property development and a five home model park, with sales beginning this summer. The new gated community features a dozen new residential designs and lots overlooking 80 acres of lakes and more than 90 acres of conservation areas.
Inspired by the nearby beaches of the Gulf of Mexico, Del Webb Oak Creek is located on Bayshore Road and offers a casual coastal ambiance with an inviting entrance monument, palm trees and tropical landscaping that welcome future residents.
As the centerpiece of Del Webb Oak Creek’s active social lifestyle, the lakefront recreation center, nestled along the 38-acre lake, will offer a variety of indoor and outdoor facilities for recreation, leisure, wellness and community-wide events.
The two-acre campus will feature a large clubhouse with a state-of-the-art fitness center, a movement studio for exercise classes, a catering kitchen, and community and activity rooms. A separate full-service poolside bar and grill offers casual day and dinner dining, al fresco and patio dining, and additional seating under the adjacent tiki hut. Poolside destinations include a lounge area with a fire pit and a heated spa overlooking the lake, as well as chaise lounges and seating areas amidst palm trees and tropical landscaping.
The community also has eight pickleball courts and three bocce ball courts. A full-time on-site lifestyle director plans a year-round calendar of community clubs, classes, trips and events.
“Del Webb is the nation’s leading builder of new homes and communities for active adults for a reason – we understand the lifestyle discerning adults want for this chapter in their lives,” said McCormick. “They want resort-style living and deserve to feel like they’re on vacation every day. They want a quality home that’s tailored for them, with an industry-leading warranty. Del Webb Oak Creek offers tremendous value at competitive prices.”
The community’s 12 home designs offer options and features that can be tailored to the individual homebuyer. Open floor plans designed to enhance time with friends and neighbors blend gathering spaces, spacious kitchens and cafes leading to lanais, reflecting Southwest Florida’s coveted outdoor lifestyle.
Whether downsizing or upsizing, Del Webb Oak Creek’s three home collections cater to individual preferences, offering from 1,405 to just over 3,000 square feet of living space with two- to four-bedrooms, two- to four-and-a-half bathrooms, and two- and three-car garages. The homes feature a variety of exterior views and color schemes, as well as spacious owner’s suites with large walk-in closets and zero-entry showers in the well-appointed bathrooms. Spacious kitchens feature large kitchen islands, ample storage space, and personalized finishes for floors, cabinets, countertops, and backsplashes. Flex Rooms offer space for a study, an extra bedroom, a study or hobby room and much more. Options built into each layout give buyers the option to extend lanais or build custom pools and spas.
Five fully decorated model homes will demonstrate the Del Webb difference and highlight the variety of finishes and features available at Del Webb’s on-site design center in Oak Creek. The models, sales center and design gallery will open in summer 2022.

The interiors seamlessly connect to the lanai and custom pool through one of Del Webb’s most popular options, sliding glass doors with no corners. The Stellar’s owner’s suite offers an oversized walk-in closet, while the other two guest suites are positioned at opposite ends of the home for privacy.
