I moved to Solivita 10 years ago and am so glad I found the community. It's amenities and social life (more than 100 clubs) provide many opportunities for fun. It's proximity to Disney (just about 40 minutes away) is a great benefit if you enjoy the parks. Homes are affordable and there are a lot of models to choose from either by building new or buying a resale. Yes it's off the main roads, but that's why I chose it. We're close enough to all the Orlando area has to offer, but far enough away to have clean air and beautiful surroundings.
My wife and I moved here in 2008. I am retired, she is still working. When the Poinciana Medical Center opened across the street, it made her commute a lot shorter (she's a RN). With over a 100 clubs, you can be as active as you like. There are many neighborhood pools, an indoor pool, 2 gyms, tennis courts, bocce courts, pickle ball, shuffle board, horse shoes, baseball and of course golf. Lifestyles schedules great shows. Publix and Walmart are close by. They have a farmers market on Monday and Friday. Saw "The Jersey Boys" at the Bob Carr in Orlando, a short drive away. Both coasts are about an hour and a half from here, Great place to live!
We moved in a month ago and are very happy. The grounds are beautiful, facilities well-maintained. The golf courses are excellent. There is so much to do, and you can chose as many activities or as little as you wish. We would highly recommend Solivita to anyone considering a 55+ community in central FL.
Kudos to our 55 Places Partner Agent for her assistance in finding our new home. She was great!
We just recently moved to Solivita after being in another park that was small nearby. My husband was looking forward to being on a golf course and I was looking forward to having more things to do. I first researched other places between Atlanta and Orlando and we spent the whole fall and winter looking at places. We narrowed it down to two places and then decided what made Solivita stand out the most was it's beauty and affordability. It is a beautiful place and we love our house. The added bonus is that there are just so many things to do a person could get overwhelmed. There is something for everyone. You can be as active and social as you want to be. I found 55places.com by searching on the internet and found our realtor here as well. Our 55 Places Partner Agent was the best kind of realtor, she showed us houses and was very helpful but not pushy in any way. A friend of ours referred to Solivita as a little piece of heaven. Well, Solivita is probably not heaven but it sure seems to be a place where you can keep growing as you age and do it gracefully.
Great place pristine environment best planned community I have seen in a long time. The only negative is the absence of good grocery stores in the area.
We moved here from California 3 years ago to retire young and feel blessed each and every day. It is such a beautiful resort place to live. We are very involved in exercise classes, Zumba, softball, pickle ball, and bicycle riding. Solivita maintenance crew work endlessly to keep everything looking so beautiful. We have met so many wonderful life-long friends through the numerous social functions. We love to take evening rides on our golf cart with our dog Foster. Retirement has become more than I could ever imagined because we chose SOLIVITA.
When moving here six and a half years ago I had doubts about all that I read as to expections about living here. It didnt take me long to realize that everything that was promised was true. The two main pools were more than expected. Golf courses were extremely well kept. Grounds well maintained. The many clubs are a sign that everyone could could enjoy their personnal needs. Have been more than happy to be a resident.
