Originally developed in 1946, the property was extensively renovated between 2003 and 2010, and the main lodge building was completely rebuilt in 2009. The luxury resort includes 214 units, a mix of hotel rooms and third-party owned condominiums, 5,439 square feet of function space, a Jack Nicklaus-designed nine-hole golf course, two swimming pools, a 5,500-square-foot spa, six tennis courts, and a fishing/mooring pier.

The HFF team representing Cheeca Holdings was led by executive managing director Manny de Zárraga and senior managing director Dan Peek.
