My Grandparents moved into Phase 1 of Leisure World (now Laguna Woods Village) 50 years ago when it opened. I have been coming here since I was a child and am now a baby boomer resident. It is a safe, peaceful, and beautiful place to live. It has all the amenities to be as active as you want. Not only are the other residents friendly and helpful, but I find the retail staff in the area go out of their way to be helpful and so friendly to all Village residents - including offering special discounts. It is truly a life in a 5 star resort with the daily carefree happiness of being at Disneyland!

My wife and I were very impressed by the quality of this community, not just the homes but how well it's run. Everything is wonderfully maintained and the team here is just fantastic. Our condo was a steal and we are very confident in its resale value. After having made some poor real estate decisions in the past we feel very confident of our decision to purchase here. We learned a lot of lessons along the way and feel that we were well prepared to make a decision for purchasing a home for our retirement years.

There is always something to do here, tons of activities and amenities to use. My wife and I have very busy schedules and that is exactly what we wanted, to try new things and meet new people. We've made a lot of new friends and enjoy entertaining at our new home. We're looking forward to enjoying many years here!
