The rich history of Hunters Point provided a framework for a new project to be known as Hunters Point Resort & Marina. While the property has had various uses over the years, in 2005 long time Cortez residents Peter and Eva Thurell had a vision for the property to re-locate historic cottage style homes to the site. Continuing with that vision, Hunters Point Resort & Marina will be developed with cottage style residences designed to complement the Village of Cortez, only newly constructed so that the homes meet all current regulations, including flood zone elevation. The cottages will include all modern conveniences in a resort setting.
Welcome to Hunters Point Resort and Marina, a new recreationally-focused property coming to Cortez, Florida. The community, which features 148 cottages will also have 49 boat slips, a public marina and community center, all designed to provide a modern, environmentally respectful and energy efficient fishing village style community. We’ve taken a fresh approach to traditional cracker cottage style architecture. We’ve blended the best of the old with the best of the new to give a nostalgic, yet refined, look and feel. With several model options available, there is plenty of room to customize to your tastes.

We know that your getaway home should have all of the comforts that you’re accustomed to, so we’ve designed several luxurious interior options for our cottages. The cottages and community buildings will be developed and constructed to receive EnergyStar® certification and qualify to become LEED certified. In keeping with being environmentally conscious and energy conservative, Hunters Point will also use innovative green design techniques to conserve water, save energy and preserve the environment.
Hunters Point Resort & Marina is located in historic and beautiful Cortez, Florida. The development has 148 modern, environmentally respectful, and energy efficient, fishing village-style cottage sites, featuring 49 boat slips, a public marina and community center allowing direct access to the Gulf of Mexico.
An Homage to Cortez
In September of 1888 a post office was established in Cortez, Florida. The area had been called Hunters Point by its early settlers. Stories have been told through generations about the origin of the name Hunters Point, varying from a man named Hunter who began homesteading the area, to some thinking the name referenced a place to hunt due to the wildlife that roamed the shores. In any event, when the residents of this small village requested a post office, there was already another Hunters Point with a post office in Florida, which meant the proposed name of the village had to be changed. When the request for a post office reached Washington, rumor has it that someone there thought it would be fitting to name the area after the “Great Conquistador,” Hernando Cortez, despite his never having been anywhere near Hunters Point.
