Solera at Kern Canyon Reviews
- Jeanette (Resident/Homeowner)|March 13, 2014You will love the backyard of this home. They have planted beautiful shade trees and other plants that would give you many enjoyable cool days. You need to see it for yourself!
- Mark K.(Resident/Homeowner)|February 12, 2014Nothing is perfect, BUT, I really like this community. It is well maintained, the other residents are very friendly. The staff at the clubhouse (The Grove) are very nice and helpful. This area (east of Bakersfield) is quite nice. Kern Canyon is just up the road and a really good area for hiking.
Bakersfield itself isn't all that great, but we rarely have to go all the way in to town. The only real downside is shopping and dining out is a bit of a hike. The closest real grocery store is about 10 miles, but I think that will improve as the east end build up more.
All in all, I recommend it!
- Susan L.(Resident/Homeowner)|June 4, 2013Friendly neighbors, reasonably priced homes and nice amenities. Always plenty of things going on and activities every day. Aside from the community itself there is a lot happening in the Bakersfield area and you'll find everything you need pretty close by.
