Gavilan Reviews (24)
Enjoy the wealth of events at RMV: i.e. the acclaimed Rodeo, visiting the working Ranch, orchards, and other tours. Holiday celebrations, summer evening concerts, and all kinds of Ranch and/or Resident sponsored gatherings, clubs and outings abound. The neighbors have been great, some retired, some working: the kind of people who step up to help each other and build the community. And you’ll meet instant friends if you are a dog walker.
Multiple builders are developing 55+ homes. But also check for attractive Resales, typically featuring a good location, with the costly, time consuming yard hardscape and landscaping already finished.
We purchased in Avocet, a quality, quiet and “ocean-breeze kissed” enclave with just a few Builder homes left. The Outlook, a wonderful 55+ exclusive resort-style amenity, sits at the heart of Avocet on Cerrero Court. It’s great that the 55+ crowd has access to all amenities throughout RMV, not just 55+ facilities. But one needs go no farther than the Outlook for a salt water pool, big screen TV, fire pit, pool-side lounging, a bbq and more. And I especially love that everything here in RMV is new!
Select your home with the effect of nearby construction in mind, as well as judging privacy and density issues based on lot size and space between homes. You’ll love Gavilon at RMV! Good luck.
Gavilan is a very friendly place to live!
We are perfectly situated to hiking, biking to the beach, close to several first class golf courses, pickle ball and bocce ball.
The entire community takes an active role in the many outings to museums, movie going club and a very active golf club as well as a host of other active clubs and groups.
We continually count our blessings at moving to Sendero/Gavilan.
A major consideration for our moving into Gavilan/Sendero specifically was the fact that our salesman informed us that none of the future developments (Esencia, etc.) would have a gated 55+ community for Gavilan residents. The gate adds an element of privacy that we appreciate.
There is a waste treatment area South of us about 2 miles. Any traffic to that area has NEVER been a problem and there has NEVER been an odor. 'WHY' can I say that?,, I walk our dog Rusty outside 4+ times everyday in the WONDERFUL OCEAN BREEZE,, I Welcome You To Paradise! You'll Love it here
Oh, and by the way... I have a very keen sense of smell (that I'm not always glad to have) and I don't know what the other reviewer is talking about...
