Insurance for park models, ports, lanais and sheds

American Integrity Insurance Company offers full coverage policies on lots with park models, lanais, ports and sheds. Suzanne Morris of Integrity Insurance Agency in Punta Gorda (941-766-1411) and Kim from Ahrens Insurance Agency in Ocala (352-368-7090) both underwrite for American Integrity Insurance.
 
Lee Reed Insurance Company in Zephyrhills (813) 782-5502) states "We have one company that will write the RV ports. They will write them as a Tiny house.  If the lanai or Casita has the bathroom, kitchen and extra living space it would be covered per our company. The RV ports would be covered because it has the rooms listed above as well. We can not cover any stand alone single weather tight rooms, stand alone screen rooms, or stand alone sheds. We do not have a market for stand alone weather tight rooms, screen rooms, or sheds."

WiFi, Fiber Optic Internet, Cable TV, and Phone Service

Free WIFI is available throughout the Clubhouse.  The Library has tables, comfortable chairs and plug-ins for charging.
 
Emerald Pointe is very fortunate to have fiber optic lines installed throughout the park.  Internet, Cable TV and Phone Service can be provided to most individual lots by Frontier Communications.  Internet service is offered with speeds up to 940mps at very reasonable rates. They can be reached at 855-293-1755.

Third party Frontier resellers often have special deals that Frontier doesn't advertise.  Emerald Pointe RV Resort provides these links for informational purposes only.  We provide no recommendations . . .  do your due diligence! 
 
Some lots have underground cabling installed already.  For those that don't, Frontier will run cabling at no charge in a grassy area.  If pavers are "in the path" where the cable is to be installed,  the lot owner will need to temporarily remove pavers from that path and then replace them after the cable installation.  Frontier will NOT remove or replace pavers.
