  • New resident!

    It is very nice. And mom seems to be settling in. Have not explored the activities yet. But there seems to be plenty going on. Food is very good

  • Fantastic resort living

    I can’t believe how happy my mom is here. She is absolutely thriving. She says it is like living in a resort full of nice people.

  • We came for a tour and decided to stay

    My husband and I live here and everything has been wonderful. One thing that they offered that other places didn’t was villas with pretty yards and a wonderful view. We really liked the idea of having our own...
