    Nice community but too many rules.

    The people are wonderful and the amenities are exactly what we were looking for but the management company and the builders do not listen to it respect the residents after they purchase and move in. The community manager treats residents like second class citizens and have no interest in listening to homeowners . They have a resident advisory committee with no voteing power or say so. They refuse to meet with resident and the manager has such poor leadership skills that we have a very high turnover of staff. There are better places to live. fortunately the residents are amazing and it's easy to make friends. Arbitrary rules designed by the HOA are not for the benefit of the community or the residents. Just got the HOA. Plus the reserve account is very dangerously low.

    Would give it a 5 star if it would not be for the HOA manager without any people or customer service skills and bad manors.
    Other than that best place to live 👍😀

    CantaMia is a wonderful, active 55+ community. From the moment you enter the private gates, you are treated to beautiful lakes and streams, a two-story clubhouse featuring an indoor and outdoor pool plus every activity you could imagine. The people are friendly and the homes are absolutely beautiful. There is a great cafe in the clubhouse serving fabulous dishes at very reasonable prices.

    With 1700 homes at completion this community is a "boutique" community. Streets wind among hills and valleys as the community is located in the Estrella Mountain Range in Southwestern Arizona.

    We came out to Canta Mia in November of 2012 and fell in love. We purchased a home and are using it as a vacation place until we finally retire.

    The clubhouse is beautiful, the people are friendly and the homes are well built and affordable (coming form NY).

    We have just completed our three night stay in one of their homes.

    My strongest impression has been the friendliness and enthusiasm of all the residents I met. Everyone loves living here and encourages you to make this your future home.

    Home designs are excellent and options are endless. I was really stunned at how energy efficiently the homes are built and the fact they guarantee your monthly average cost.

    This community is at the top of my list.
