Santa Brings a little HO HO HO to the Holidays in Cantamar!

HO HO HO! Santa arrived in Cantamar on a beautiful Saturday morning, December 16th,
to greet all the little boys and girls in our neighborhood (well, some were not that “little.”)
With his jolly laugh and a twinkle in his eye he took pictures with all the children and listened to their Christmas wishes.

The day was warm and sunny with a cool breeze,
perfect for a little Santa time, and some cookies and chocolate milk or water.

But Santa’s favorite part was all the toys collected for the Cutler Bay Police Toy Drive,
helping children who might not otherwise get gifts have a very Merry Christmas!

So, as Santa always says:
HO HO HO… Merry Christmas to ALL!!!!

Another Terrific Halloween Party

It was another wonderful—and a little scary—Halloween Party!
We had wonderful weather and a great crowd in fun costumes. The kids enjoyed the bounce house and candy bags.
Thanks to Comcast for providing the pizza; cotton candy and popcorn rounded out the goodies.
The crowd enjoyed the lively Apple Bobbing, Mummy Wrapping, and Costume contests.

The evening wrapped up with an invasion of “zombies” mingling with the crowd—scary or fun??
A little of both?

Check out photos from the Party.

Important Information for all Residents

Contact Us Cantamar HOA Board of Directors, Committees, and Management Company, and the Town of Cutler Bay

October 27, 2017

Dear Cantamar Homeowner/Resident,

Storm Clean-Up

This is a final update as to the Irma Storm Clean-Up and Condition of Properties in the Community. The Association has been engaged with the Landscape Company to clean up and save the trees in the swales and common areas of neighborhood that could be saved. Unfortunately some of the trees were damaged so severely they had to be removed. We will be performing the stump grinding over the coming couple of weeks. Please do not remove any trees without first obtaining authorization from the Association. Homeowners and/or Residents that have removed trees without authorization from the Association will receive violation notices and will be required to provide replacement trees.

Regarding the grass in the swales damaged by the storing of landscape debris, the responsibility to repair/re-sod is each individual homeowner’s responsibility. We will be doing some final tree trimming and stump grinding within the next 30 days.

Fortunately, the amount of damage and cleanup cost did not exceed what the association could afford to pay without any special assessment being needed.


The Board of Directors has approved the 2018 Budget (click to download a PDF of the Budget).

In consideration of maintaining services as we have come accustomed to, it was necessary to increase the HOA Fees from $40 to $44 per month per home. It has been several years since the fees were last increased. The Board will continue to do everything possible to save money where and when it can, but in order to properly fund the Reserves and Operations this increase was needed.


The community’s mailboxes have reached the time where they are deteriorating to the degree that replacement is the only option to maintain property values and good aesthetics.

The Board is looking into replacing all the mailboxes at one time so they will all be consistent and should last another 10 years.

We will be conducting a special meeting to review the cost and best way to finance of the project. Once scheduled, we will send notice of the meeting where any assessment may be considered.

Your Board of Directors and Management

Updated Banking Information for 2018

There is a new Bank Address. Your 2018 Fees should be sent to:

PO Box 366249
Bonita Springs, FL 34136

If you use online banking to pay your HOA Fees, be sure to update the information so that your payment gets to the right place.

Do you know what our Documents state about
Parking on the Street, Lawn or Sidewalk?


Section 7.9 explicitly states that all vehicles must be parked within Homeowner’s property (driveway or garage)
and NOT on the street, NOT on the front lawn, and NOT on the sidewalk.

HOWEVER, we understand that when we have guests, they do need a place to park so parking
Parking is not allowed on the sidewalk or the front lawn. Vertical parking across the lawn is NOT permitted.
This TEMPORARY street parking is for party or day guests (it does not apply to overnight guests visiting from out of town).
Overnight street parking is NOT allowed.

– – – – – –

Do you know what our Documents state about
Signs, Commercial Banners, and Posters on our Front Lawns?

Real Estate Update

Section 7.23 of our documents states that No Signs are allowed in front of our properties
except for a “For Sale” or “For Lease” sign and
these are not to exceed 2 feet square (288 square inches: 24″ x 12″, 18″ x 16″).
The only other sign permitted is for an “Open House.”

The rationale for this is to maintain a tidy looking community.
