Sun City Oro Valley Reviews
- Del B.(Resident/Homeowner)|March 9, 2012Our wonderfully friendly community! Most of us moved here from somewhere else not knowing any, or very few,
residents. Just like the Pioneers of old we had the backbone to pull up stakes to find a new home to enjoy our senior years. We found it! Come visit us and learn why for yourselves.
- Lynne N.(Resident/Homeowner)|December 7, 2011After ten years, I am still astonished at the quality of this community. Everyone has updated their homes. Our common areas and buildings are kept in tip top shape. Most importantly, this is truly a community. Here we all volunteer to serve on an assoc. committee or serve the club that's of interest to us. We are very, very active. There is plenty to do if you're a "doer" and plenty to enjoy if you are not.
Just a walk down the street brings waves and greetings. Everyone that lives here feels safe, respected and that they belong to our "family". A truly great place to live.
- Barbara M.(Resident/Homeowner)|December 4, 2011I have lived in SCV for almost 20 years. It is the best move we ever made. The community is small compared with other Del Webb sites but with the most fantastic views. Outside of Tucson in the high desert, we have idea weather for outside activities and there are more activities and clubs than imaginable. A championship golf course, tennis courts, pickleball, art, dancing, continuing education, woodworking, lapidary, ceramics,hiking, and computer classes are just be a few of the many activities available. We have a cafe' on site with catering capability for the many neighborhood parties that are planned throughout the year. This a "the place to live an active life!"
