I agree with the comments from the previous reviewer 100%. The community is very clean and well maintained. You can see the pride of ownership throughout the community. I would add the homes here are a great value. Prices are reasonable and the monthly fees are low considering how much is included. Most of the time "You get what you pay for" and sometimes less, but here but at Plantation you get even more. Nice homes, clean and safe community, great amenities, friendly neighbors. Couldn't ask for more!

We had traveled extensively around the USA before deciding to retire from the Boston, MA area to the Plantation. You can find fantastic amenities at different communities but the one thing you must consider in where to retire is the financial solvency of the community itself. The Plantation has it all from Archery to Zumba, 2 18 hole golf courses, all for a fee of $85.00 per month ($170 for lawn maintained villages where they mow, trim, fertilize, etc.). The $85.Mo fee has remained the same since 2007 to present (2012) RESIDENT OWNED. There are About 2800 home in our gated community and even the "oldest streets" are clean and neat.
