If you have a masonry CYV, they are not concrete block but rather solid poured concrete using forms. They maintain your home at such a cool temperature that there are times we open the sliding doors to warm up the house. Our 2BR Durham model electric bill summer, winter, fall or spring is under $90 a month, most times it's in the $70 to $80 range.

You'll find spring and summer here is so short, you don't open doors and window much, basically we have two seasons in mid-Florida. We have a screen on the garage opening shown in the photo below, so if we open the door to the garage and one of the sliding glass doors, the breeze running through the home is almost too much. Basically we stay buttoned up most of the year.

You'll find if they have a survey of CYV owners, the only negative you get, is the garage is too small. However, in newer units south of 466A a 2 car garage is much easier to find. In case you're wondering the garage door is 12' which they call a 1-1/2 car garage, two car garages are 16', and of course you have many single family homes with 2 car + golf cart.

Im assuming you mean the actual border walls, not the walls of the home. I live in a Designer series, so I dont have any experience with CYV. I will be interested to see the replies you receive. I do know when we had our pool built we definitely decided against a stucco privacy wall, as not only does it limit the flow of air in the summer, but it resulted in a view of neighbors rooftops.

with CWGUY.

We moved from our CYV because the garage was too small.

Have had a designer and courtyard villa, found no difference with air circulation with or without the fence/border walls around the property.

I think the OP means the backyard walls. The border wall around the villa community is a 7' masonry wall, the same height and material as the back wall behind our CYV. Our back wall sits about 20' behind our house and doesn't effect the wind or breeze at all. Like I said before, if I want extreme winds then just open the door to the garage with the garage door up, but that's not necessary.

Some of my neighbors have a storm door with a screen, and that would give a similar effect. Storm doors about $300 installed, garage door screen $850 installed. However, there more to having the screen on the garage than just allowing the breeze come through. With the laundry in the garage it helps to keep the temps down in the garage. It keeps lizards and snakes out of the garage and the ocassional gator and any 2 legged intruders wander in, then you know they've cut the screen and they're in for trouble.
