Water Ski Lake Communities in Gilbert, Arizona

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Zion Realty

Boat owners know that living in the city and being a boating enthusiast aren't always the best combination especially in Arizona. If you are a resident of Gilbert the nearest lakes are more than an hour away. Between loading and unloading all of your gear, hitching up and unhitching your boat, and driving to and from the lake it can turn a day of fun into a chore.

Well, what if there were a way to enjoy a day on the water without ever leaving your house? If you love relaxing on your boat, or enjoy water skiing and other water sports activities then Gilbert, Arizona has two great subdivisions that will fit your boating lifestyle.


1. Playa Del Rey 


Playa Del Rey in Gilbert, Arizona is a luxury, gated community with it's own private Water-ski lake. Every homeowner in this subdivision has access to the water-ski lake through a designated boat launch pad, however, there are 36 exclusive houses that actually back to the water each having it's own private boat dock. 

There is also a second, separate lake just for paddle boats. The smaller paddle boat lake has 27 homes that have direct access to the water. Community amenities in Playa Del Rey don't just stop there. Inside of this subdivision you will also find a basketball court, volleyball court, a club house, and miniature golf course.


2. Crystal Point Estates 


Even more exclusive is the community of Crystal Point Estates. This private water ski neighborhood consists of only 18 custom built homes that all have direct access to the man made lake which runs right through the center of the subdivision. 


Each custom home comes with it's own covered dock where you can keep your boat or watercrafts ready all year round. Be the envy of the boating community in Gilbert or even the entire East Valley by living in this highly sought after subdivision! 


It's not easy buying into one of these two communities. Homes do not come up for sale in either of these subdivisions very often and when they do, they are snapped up quickly. If you are a boating or water enthusiast and purchasing a home in either Playa Del Rey or Crystal Point Estates fits your lifestyle then contact us at ZionRealtyAZ.com today. We will set you up on a personalized search that will alert you immediately when any homes are listed for sale in either one of these neighborhoods!

Nicole, Excellent idea to highlight these two water sports friendly neighborhood and leave a call to action. I would guess someone reading your post who owns a boat but has to drive  long way to enjoy it will contact you for assistance to find home in one of these two communities.

Li - They aren't very prevalent but we do have them!

Grant - For boat owners and for people who just want a water view!

Amanda - We've got to be experts in our markets if people are going to rely on us! I guarantee you are just as much of an expert in your area as well!

Gayle - Playa Del Rey is a little slower paced than Crystal Point Estates but they are both set up specifically for water skiing.

Bob - Here's hoping they will see this post and give me a call!

I have never been, but I bet water skiing is a lot of fun.  And a community that offers it would be great.

I love to waterski and with our 15,000+ acre lake we have plenty of room nearby.  I really want to start to paddleboard though.

Tammy - Houses are definitely not cheap in those communities.

Fred - You're really buying in to a lifestyle more than a subdivision.

Lou - Even during the Spring and Fall it's still warm enough to go.

Chris Ann - You're not kidding it is. I've tried water skiing twice and couldn't get up on the skis.

Debbie - Water views in Arizona are a big draw!

Tammy - I was literally just talking to a friend of mine last week about paddle boarding out at our Canyon Lake which is about an hour drive.

James - I could definitely see you hanging out in your yard or on your back porch watching the skiers go by!

Gabe - They are a little oasis in the desert!

Tom - That's why houses don't come up for sale very often in both of these subdivisions. Serious water enthusiasts know the value of living there.

L & S - It's a very exclusive niche but it's one that I would love to service!
