    We bought our home for retirement here because we didn't really want to downsize in square footage and we also didn't want to be in a busy neighborhood. Desert Hills Estates fit the bill because there is not a clubhouse on-site so it's very quiet and relaxing. If we want to use the gym or swim we have a short drive to a bunch of clubhouses. There is always something to do if we want to, or we just stay home and relax. The house has plenty of space, tons of storage and the yard is big, maybe a little too big!
