The review is misleading. The golf club is privately owned( not by the homeowners or HOA ). There is a fee to join and monthly dues including a monthly golf cart usage fee. Management caters to there members and for the most part homeowner non members are not encouraged to play here and are not really welcome. The golf club also had its own restaurant which competes with homeowner owned Anacapa.
A beautiful development We looked at several over 50 communities and felt that Corte Bella was the best looking with lush plantings and best value.
My husband and I finally got the courage to sell our big family home and move to Corte Bella last year. We are so happy with everything here we wish we would have moved sooner. First off, it's a smaller community, around 1,600 homes I think. That's much smaller than your typical big Del Webb communities in Arizona. It is very private and elegant with beautiful landscaping and fountains. There is a gate at the entry too so that really gives you a feeling of security plus it makes the community look like a real resort community. The clubhouse is nicely done with everything you'd need like a fitness center, swimming pools and a restaurant too. Everyday here has been like a vacation ... it's about time! We're loving it!
