About the facility Monte Vista Village

Monte Vista Village is a senior living community nestled on an eight-acre, grove campus peppered with towering palm trees, blossoming flowers, and tropical plants. A cascading waterfall and charming fish pond also add serenity to the campus. In this community, residents benefit from independent living, assisted living, and independent living services provided in a resort-like setting filled with thoughtful services, luxurious amenities, and life-enriching activities.

The location offers convenience with its quick access to grocery markets, retail stores, restaurants, parks, and medical facilities. Furthermore, active residents can venture out into San Diego — a mere 15 minutes away — to explore its historic sites, museums, golf courses, and famed San Diego Zoo.

Within the community, residents get to enjoy a leisurely or active retirement — explore the lush gardens, work out in the fitness center, take a dip in the heated swimming pool, or gather in the clubhouse. Plus, regularly scheduled events and activities keep residents socially active. From happy hours and live entertainment to game nights and art classes, something will surely captivate each resident’s interest.

While residents are enjoying their favorite pastimes, savoring tasty meals in the dining room, and socializing with one another, professional associates are working hard to eliminate...

Sweet Spot in Lemon Grove

All of the staff, from the front desk to the maintenance, are friendly and helpful. Everyone there seems genuinely happy to be working there. Communication is great, especially in response to all of my inquiries. Their dining room is family style, which really promotes relationships and the food is great. They always offer an alternative menu as well, which is great for those of us who don't eat meat. The residents rave about the soups. The move in process was easy and they even have a resident welcome committee, which made my mom feel special. I would highly recommend Monte Vista Village to others!

A Beautiful Place to Live

They are responsive to the needs of their residents. My sister lives this place and the activities they offer. I speak to other residents there and they have lived in other places and they all like Monte Vista the best. Based on the experience we have had so far with Monte Vista Village, we would absolutely recommend this community to others,

I'm Too Young to Be Here, But What I've Experienced Overall Has Been Very Positive

It would be nice to have longer time frames for dinner to allow residents an opportunity to eat later, and to make sure there is enough food available for all the residents to eat. Dinner starts at 4:30. [Name removed] is awesome! Whenever you ask [name removed] to get something done, it gets done. This individual is a five star in my mind!

Monte Vista Village is excellent. I would live there if I needed to. The staff were always so helpful and kind. The person I knew that lived there was very difficult, but the staff went above helping her in every way. Lots of activities and ways to interact if you want. The grounds are beautiful and quiet. Extra services provided, such as meditation, are affordable. 5 star all around.

What stands out to us about this community is the size of the apartments, the garden like grounds, and the staff friendliness. The Sales Director, Administrator, and head of Residential Care are all great. They're very kind and helpful. The facility offers activities. They provide housekeeping and it's always clean. I would recommend them to family and friends.

Absolutely Magnificent!

Unfortunately things started to go downhill for me when Covid hit and over the last two years I have gone downhill with my health as well. After moving in with my son for six months we decided that this move to Monte Vista village would be the best place for me. Not have I only found this to be a very pleasant place to live I have also made lifelong friends. It’s not just an over 55+ facility, it is also a place to enjoy special events we go shopping we go out to lunch, our doctors appointments are taking care of three days a week, and much more.

Comfort of home without work or worry

Monte Vista Village has been the perfect place for my mother and father who are in their mid 90's and can live independently but appreciate being pampered with delicious meals prepared for them, excellent housekeeping and laundry service, on-site response should they need help, and plenty of amenities and activities to make life fun and interesting. The staff are friendly and accommodating and always respectful. The property is beautifully fashioned after an Hawaiian village with all residences arranged in cottage style buildings. My parents are very happy here and I feel very secure that they are well-cared for.

I live in the Denver area and wanted to take a vacation to San Diego-- my favorite spot to visit, I reside in an Assisted Living Community and was able to make arrangements at Monte Vista Village for a two week stay that met my care needs. I was very pleased with the facilities. The food was good; the Caregivers were excellent; and the grounds were beautiful.

A Place for Mom has scored Monte Vista Village 10 out of 10 using our proprietary review score.

We assign review scores to give a more reliable view into senior living communities and home care agencies. Our review scores prioritize reviews that are recent — the past 24 months — because we know families need current information when choosing senior care.

Those with many recent, positive reviews receive a high review score, while providers with few recent reviews — regardless of how positive — receive a lower review score. Communities with no recent reviews will not have a review score, even if older reviews are positive. The maximum A Place for Mom review score a community can receive is 10 points.
