Introducing Saltleaf

A new confluence of home and town. One part relaxed, one part refined. Where everyday life feels vibrant. Healthy. Inspiring deeper connections between people and the sea, wild spaces — and each other. Welcome to the coastal village of Saltleaf on Estero Bay.

Saltleaf lies on nearly a mile of one of Southwest Florida’s last great stretches of waterfront, next to our state’s very first aquatic preserve, Estero Bay. A hidden gem known for centuries-old mangrove forests. Thriving oyster beds, tarpon and manatees. And soon, a village that’s just as nurturing for the humans-next-door. At Saltleaf, The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Estero Bay will connect to shady trails, inviting you to walk to the neighborhood marina, restaurant and golf course. Within the quiet beauty of a nature preserve. Or hop on your bike for a pop-up concert and mixology class.

Perfect days are on the horizon. Start with a sunrise stroll over to Saltleaf Marina, the border of our village. Then, boat to a picnic on Sanibel or Captiva Islands or a café in Naples. Or not. Because besides Saltleaf’s own mix of great food, high-energy fun and championship golf, you’ll find plenty of ways to spend a day in Bonita Springs, thanks to this friendly town’s sugar-white sand beaches, boutiques, galleries and restaurants. Getting here is easy, with an international airport only 20 minutes away.

Saltleaf Marina

Grab your paddleboard, kayak or sport boat. With boat slips for both Saltleaf residents and the public, this new marina invites everyone to come take a day trip to a nearby island, reel in a hefty red grouper out on the Gulf, or just sit back and relax on a sunset cruise. The marina’s chef-driven restaurant provides yet another option: terrace dining with a side of crisp salt air.

Hello Saltleaf Marina

Nature’s hold
on Estero Bay

Venture into the pristine waters of our estuary-next-door and you’ll see why it’s considered one of Florida’s healthiest. From circling egrets to the redfish they hunt to the thickets of mangrove where they hide, nature is still firmly in charge. The name Saltleaf honors the bay’s mangroves — ancient, fiercely protected trees that filter the estuary’s water, releasing salt onto their leaves in tiny, glistening crystals. Mangroves clean the air, protect our coast, and hold centuries of indigenous history. We’re honored to call Estero Bay home and thoughtfully support its continuing protection.
