55+ Cooperative Community of Surfside Estates in Beverly Beach, Florida Features Low Maintenance Homes, a Waterfront Park, a Lovely New Clubhouse with a Rooftop Deck and More
Tucked along the Matanzas River in Beverly Beach on the northeastern Florida coast, Surfside Estates is an established 55+ mobile home and manufactured home cooperative. It has 240 properties and is open to part-time and full-time residents.
The community was established as a cooperative in 1994. Residents own a share of the Surfside Estates Resident Owned Community (ROC), which is a non-profit organization, and can sell or bequeath their share. This arrangement means that shareholders do not pay a monthly lot fee. Instead they pay a $125 monthlyfee that covers amenitiy maintenance, basic cable, common grounds maintenance and more.
Surfside Estates has a mix of older homes and newer homes because shares can be sold without a home attached, meaning that new buyers can bring in more modern dwellings. Each share applies to a specific lot so buyers know their exact location within the community.
Most homes are white or pastel-colored with an attached carport and a small lawn or rock-covered area out front. Floor plans are mostly two bedrooms with two baths.
Prices start in the low-$100,000s, but please verify this with the development or a Realtor as prices are subject to change. Occasionally, homes come up for lease, too.
Amenities include a waterfront park along the river, a couple of fishing piers, kayak/canoe/small boat storage, a lovely new clubhouse with a heated swimming pool, a fitness center, a sundeck, a rooftop deck and more. The Atlantic Ocean and a beach are just across the street. Planned events include bingo nights, auctions, wine and paint parties, movie nights, scavenger hunts and more.

Named Pascua Florida by Juan Ponce De Leon, the Sunshine State did not enter the Union until March 3, 1845. Balmy mild winters began attracting snowbirds to the state in the late 19th century. Retirees continue to flock to the state. It's not hard to see why tourism has become the leading industry.
International trade and citrus are also major contributors to the state's economy. Eighty percent of the nation's oranges and grapefruits are grown here, and 40 percent of all U.S. exports to Latin America flow through Florida.
Florida's landscape includes uplands and coastal plains. It contains more than 11,000 miles of waterways and about 4,500 islands spread across 10 acres.
The state has 1,250 more golf courses than any other state in the Union. The 47 mile Pinellas Trail is the longest urban trail on the east coast. Orlando theme parks attract more visitors than any other theme parks in the U.S. The only place in the world where alligators and crocodiles co-exist is in National Everglades Park.
Florida, particularly the Keys and the Gulf Coast, were struck by Category 4 Hurricane Irma in early September, 2017. Towns will rebuild, perhaps this time with climate change in mind, making them safer and better equipped to handle major hurricanes going forward.
