Fit for a Queen

My sisters went to tour and take my loved one. My sister said that this community was like a Four Seasons Hotel. Now they have 4 housekeepers at this community. My loved one said that her place wasn't being cleaned, but there is now four available to clean the room after speaking to the management. The food is excellent, and there is lots of leftovers. I believe my loved one is very happy there. I think this is the best place according to my sisters for our loved one. The outside is beautiful and well maintained, and have an outdoor area that they have brought in musicians. My loved one said that the community is friendly. She has been able to make friends. They had music and dancing as activities prior to COVID.

First 90 Days

Overall we are very satisfied with Grand Villa. Most recently there have been issues with the food service department because of staff departures. They are addressing it but it appears it will be a long process to get back to the quality level they provided during our initial visit and first few weeks of living there.

Review of Grand Villa

My parents & I visited Grand Villa while we were on vacation to find an independent living facility for my grandma. We arrived and immediately saw a fair number of residents interacting. The exterior of the community was vibrant and clean. The residents are lively and active. There were lots of events and activities available for residents. Everybody we saw spoke to us and [name removed], the staff member that guided us. This is a great sign that the staff are lived & residents are friendly. We visited a few other communities but suggested Grand Villa to grandma.

We have lived at Grand Villa since [date removed] During this time we have met many amazing and friendly people. They are older than us but you would not know it! We have become involved in cards, mahjong, farkle, dominoes and Samba. We find the food to be very good, with great choices each day. We can have our hair cuts and my nails done without having to go elsewhere. So after 7 1/2 months we truly love our Grand Villa lifestyle!

Comfort and safety

I moved to Grand Villa almost 2 years ago and have been very happy here! It truly does "Look like home and feel like family"! My apartment is bright , spacious and beautiful; the flavorful meals are served in a lovely restaurant style environment and the varied scheduled activities are quite enjoyable. Also, importantly, the management and staff are wonderful! They, along with many delightful residents, are what makes everyday here feel like you're living with family. Everyone employed at Grand Villa is attentive, compassionate and proactive. Its reassuring to know that along with their kindness and entertaining personalities, my comfort and safety are top priority at Grand Villa.

Content and happy

I am very happy with my living arrangements here at Grand Villa. I like that there are a lot of other residents to visit with. I enjoy all of the amenities. The new menu board in the lobby and other locations is a nice addition. The food options are very good and desirable. The bar and entertainment is very good too. The size of my condo is very nice for me, it has everything i need! I have been very content and I like everything Grand Villa has to offer.

There are many varied activities for residents enjoyment. Having a washer and dryer in your apartment is really a great addition! Also management is a very sociable and caring bunch. The pool is A#1!

Having a great time

My moving to Grand Villa was the perfect move for me. All the staff are so helpful and fun to visit with. The residents have become good friends and have been so helpful to me when I needed help. Having a washer and dryer in my apartment is a true bonus. I wouldn't want to live anywhere without it. Another bonus is being able to choose whom I sit with at lunch or dinner: The wait staff do their job well and I enjoy getting to know them. All in all, I am having a great time here!

Home from home

Grand Villa feels very comfortable when you’re here. I was brought up in a very large house so space was a concern of mine but when my wife died and kids were grown I had to decide to regroup. My son chose grand Villa for me for the food and convenient location. He knows me so well, the friendliness of everyone here the help all know my name and everyone smiles every day and seems so happy with what they do here. I am very happy tremendously with the great group that we have here and we are also very close. I love the lunch Bunch every third Friday for men it’s a good thing I don’t drive anymore so the transportation provided is definitely a plus.

My home

When my husband died in 2017, I was so lonely even though I lived in a nice neighborhood with wonderful neighbors. I decided to look around for somewhere to live where I would not be so lonely, where I could bring my dog, and where I would also have a lovely place to live. I was happy when I discovered grand Villa. I was able to move in to grand Villa a month and a half later. My apartment has very spacious rooms which accommodate my large furniture. It also has new appliances and fixtures, and a washer and dryer. The large closets have room for lots of clothes plus many of my special treasures that I didn’t want to leave behind. The fine dining restaurant overlooks the pool. I enjoyed the food and the way that it is served. There are many activities to choose from, something for almost everyone’s preference. But most important of all are the great people that I have met from administrators and staff to the residence, many of whom have become very special friends.

Having your cake and eating it too!

To me living at Grand Villa is having your cake and eating it too! Grand Villa has all the comforts of home and away! There is entertainment, great meals, card games, billiards, library, movies, workout room, hair and nail salon, small grocery store, swimming pool and dancing! You can mingle or be on your own. I came to Grand Villa just to have a "Look see", now I am here to stay.

Its for you

I lived in [removed] prior to moving to Grand Villa and we had a social membership for dinners and dancing. After my husband died and son came to move in my condo I decided to move to Grand Villa. I did visit other communities but chose Grand Villa for its location and convenience to my church and sons home. The staff here are for the residents. Its as simple as that.
