It is especially important to be considerate of your neighbors, by closing your windows and doors if you are going to play your music, TV, or have a party that might create sounds disturbing to others, day or night.
    Refrain from doing any work in your unit that might cause a disturbance before 8:00 am and after 10:00 pm.
    When cleaning your lanai, do not allow water to spill over the sides. Water will stain the building and can enter your neighbor’s space below.   Clean lanais with a  mop or vacuum.

Bunche Preserve and Wildlife
  • Are There Alligators at Mastique?
    Alligators are common throughout Florida and are usually found in fresh water lakes and ponds.  Lake Mastique and the surrounding Bunche Preserve are salt water environments and alligators will usually avoid this environment. 
         However, alligators do, from time to time, appear in our lake and lie on our beaches.
         If you observe an alligator - follow the understanding we have with that species "we will ignore you and you will ignore us."  In other words - do not approach, frighten or feed the gator.
  • Tell Me About the Bunche Beach Preserve
    Mastique is surrounded on 3 sides by the 700+ acre wetland preserve known as the Bunche Beach Preserve.  Because this preserve has never been developed, it is unique, in southwest Florida.  The majority of the Preserve is mangrove swamp with mangrove tunnels and small creeks. The main attraction is the gently sloping beach and calm surf. The entire preserve is considered to be in pristine condition.  And, as you might expect, this is a haven for local wildlife, particularly birds.
    The following is an article written by Charles Sobczak that appeared on September 17, 2014 in the Fort Myers Florida Weekly:
    Named in honor of Dr. Ralph Bunche, the first African American to win the Nobel Peace Prize, Bunche Beach has a history that is as fascinating as the wildlife that frequents this undeveloped stretch of sand, salt and tidal flats. The preserve got its start in the racially segregated South in 1949 when members of the Lee County black community purchased a small half-acre stretch of beach that became the only beach for people of color in all of South Florida. One year later, shortly before Dr. Bunche was awarded the Nobel Prize for his work in negotiating a cease-fire between the Arabs and the new state of Israel, more than 3,000 people attended the dedication ceremony for this small park. Participants came from as far away as Tampa to celebrate this historic event, complete with a barbecue and other festivities.
    The privately held acreage surrounding the original Bunche Beach remained undeveloped largely because of its lowlying nature. With monies from Lee County’s Conservation 20/20 program and in collaboration with the Florida Communities Trust, an additional 705 acres were added to the half-acre site in 2001. Several other acquisitions and donations have increased the preserve to its current 731 acres.
    In April 2010, Lee County Parks and Recreation added composting restrooms, two kayak and canoe launches, two fishing piers and a paved, 52-vehicle parking lot. A small concession offers kayak and canoe rentals.
    Because of the protected nature of this shoreline, canoeists and kayakers are able to cruise up to a mile off the beach. Several nearby tidal creeks, including Terrapin Creek, are well worth exploring. Fishing is allowed throughout the park and catches might include mangrove snapper, mullet, sheepshead, snook and seatrout.
    Aside from the beach, which is more than a mile long, and the long, straight John Morris Road that leads into the preserve, hiking at Bunche Beach is limited. The dry salt flats located along the northern edge of the preserve are interesting areas to explore, but there are no trails and the going is strenuous.
    The Bunche Beach Preserve is a part of the South Florida Birding Trail, which notes in its brochure at FloridaBirdingTrail.com that the beach is known for some of the best shorebird watching in South Florida. Common sightings include the rare Wilson’s plover, black-bellied and semipalmated plovers, marbled godwits and whimbrels. Other birds found at low tide include roseate spoonbills, white ibis and least terns. Because of the nesting shorebirds, dogs are not allowed at Bunche Beach.
    One of the best times to visit Bunche Beach is at any extremely low tide. Because the slope of the beach is so gradual, as the tide ebbs, shallow tide pools are formed. Wading carefully through these exposed flats is nothing short of amazing. You will discover immature hermit and horseshoe crabs along with clams, king’s crowns and a variety of other sea life. There are also dozens of shorebirds, wading birds and black skimmers. Bunche Beach is a true natural treasure.

  • What do I do with my trash including extra large trash?
    Items too large for the trash bins or the trash hopper can be disposed of by placing the item on the concrete pad, adjacent to the level 1 parking area.  Then, call Advanced Disposal 239.334.1224 and request removal.  This service is part of our contract, W2008584, with that company. There is no additional fee.
    Other large trash items maybe placed in the trash room hoppers (1st floor west end).  The door is opened with your "community" door key.
    For smaller trash there is a trash chute on each floor adjacent to the freight elevator on the west side of the buildings. Only trash in plastic bags tied closed may be disposed of in the chutes. No boxes or construction debris should be put in the trash chutes.
    Mastique supports recycling. We recycle all paper, cardboard, plastic and glass containers. The recycle bins are in the first floor freight elevator area and the contents of each bin is posted on the wall. The trash room is in the same location. Please breakdown (flatten) all your cardboard boxes.
  • What!! There are Garbage Disposals in Our High Rise Condo!
    Garbage disposals were installed in all units of our condo; but using them is a really bad idea.  With a long vertical discharge route and horizontal connections from each condo unit, there are many opportunities for waste to adhere to the sides, plug the outlet and back up into the condos.  And, it happens.  Grease, oil, fat, and fibrous material like celery, onion skin, potato peels and artichokes are the worst.
    Please scrape all waste from plates and put it in the trash and minimize what does enter the disposal.
