We purchased our home in 2012 as a winter get away from Ohio's nasty winters. We LOVE it here - everything is so convenient and all the yard work is taken care of for you. Especially nice when you're away for part of the year. The people are friendly and there are so many activities if you want to participate. Or you can just kick back and relax :-) When you don't feel like cooking, there are delicious meals at the clubhouse. Since yard care is included in your homeowner fees, all the homes look nice and are well maintained. When our grandkids come to visit, we are only 1 hour away from the attractions in Orlando, or a shorter distance to Daytona Beach. Or they can just swim at the gorgeous pool!! Overall, it is a great place to live!
