After extensive research and looking at 50+ communities in Texas, Arizona, California and all over Florida, I found Citrus Hills. There are many reasons that it was obvious that this is the best retirement situation that I have found. Some of these reasons include homes that do not all look alike, rolling hills in central Florida, rivers for fishing and the nearby Gulf. Also, the proximity of Tampa, Orlando, Ocala and Gainesville for shopping, university sports and cultural events as well as excellent medical availability make this ideal. Low taxes, and reasonable amenity fees are also very attractive.

From the moment we entered Citrus Hills we knew that we had found a special place. It is not only a beautiful community but offers a large selection of beautiful homes and a multitude of amenities, not to mention the surrounding lakes, rivers and nearby Gulf of Mexico.

We fell in love with Citrus Hills the first time we visited. Choosing our lot and customizing our new home was a smooth and exciting process. The most impressive thing we found was that all the people involved in this venture were extremely knowledgeable, helpful and nice.

Terra Vista has the flavor of North Carolina with rolling hills and the true feeling of 'community' in sunny Florida. We enjoyed our visit and found the homes to be some of the best built that we have ever seen. My father was a home builder in Atlanta for years and I know he would be impressed. We swam with the manatees during our visit. My grandson was amazed and I know he will remember this 4-ever.

My wife and I recently returned from a month long trip looking at different areas between Hilton Head and Naples when we found the Villages of Citrus Hills. I have to say, an absolutely outstanding property with more to offer that we both enjoyed then any of the other locations we looked at. We are looking forward to our return visit next month to choose our new home and must add...of the communities and many staff members at different locations we've experienced over the last month or sincerest thank you to the staff for their outstanding service at the far the most attentive and professional we've experienced.

Wow ! This is a very impressive development. We've been traveling to FL over the past several years during our winter months - MN, and mostly, to the Miami and Ft Lauderdale area. Well this year, we visited the Tampa area instead, and my wife liked it so much, she has decided that Citrus Hill is where we will be buying our retirement home ... can't argue wt that ! She's the boss ... The staff was great and we look forward to visiting again in April. Don Descote

I have spent quite a bit of time there.The community is a beautiful and classy place that is financially sound and professionally run. The spa and golf course is of the best in Florida. There is more to the story or just a fluke. We are thinking of buying there

My wife and I spent a couple of nights at their accommodations and took a tour in Sep., 2011. My Lexus 350 was scratched in their garage because the door is either lower than normal and... I know there are sharp metal protrusions. Well, our sales person was no help and after numerous e-mails, they refused to pay for the damage. The way they handled this and, they way the owner is publicly arguing with a family member (a sister I believe) made me never want to do business with them. Take care with promises made and what you pay for. Once, they were giving away club access to new buyers where existing buyers paid serious money. I advise anyone to not do business here.
