What’s Florida’s Best Kept Secret?

“Hammock Dunes and Hammock Beach” says top-ranked realtor Molly Carey of RE/MAX Select Professionals. This Florida native knew what she wanted when she and her family relocated from Washington, DC and settled here.

Just above the tropic/temperate line in Palm Coast, buffered from the hurricanes and hubbub of south Florida, Hammock Dunes and Hammock Beach offer “lovely ocean breezes in summer and mild winters,” she says. “We call it San Diego East.” A small town with all of the advantages of a big city, this planned community has Jacksonville, St Augustine, and Orlando within a brief drive.

It’s deliciously peaceful, with sea turtles nesting on the beach and dolphins and whales dancing in the waves. “You can walk for miles along those beaches,” she says, “and never see a soul.”

Carey specializes in luxury real estate, particularly the properties at Hammock Dunes and Hammock Beach, which are rare, private, gated, oceanfront communities, featuring four championship golf courses by Tom Fazio, Rees Jones, Jack Nicklaus and Tom Watson. Enjoy “teeing it up” while overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.

She also lives there. “Our home is on the ocean and the golf course. The Palm Coast area offers a wealth of natural resources. In addition to the Atlantic Ocean, the Intracoastal Waterway is only a ¼ of a mile away and is part of the Hammock Dunes and Hammock Beach communities. Many residents love the ability to dock their boat on the ICW and walk to the ocean. Palm Coast also has the largest number of bicycle trails of any county in Florida and 28 miles of saltwater canals. Carey says, “this is truly a sports paradise with fishing, boating, kayaking, surfing, jet skiing, golfing and all beach activities.”

Residences range in price from $200,000 to $5 million and include Condos, Villas, Single Family Homes and Oceanfront Estates. Step into “vacation mode” with the luxury amenities of the private Hammock Dunes Club and the Hammock Beach Resort Club.
