We purchased a home in Sun City Shadow Hills (SCSH) in 2006 for future retirement as we were just in our 40's at the time. In the meantime, we have leased our home out and have not had any issues with the home or the tenants, our current tenant has been in the home for about 4 years and have extended the lease again. They love the community and their home. After all those years we have not had any issues with our home, plumbing has been fine, roof, appliances. We did have a few stucco cracks near 2 windows (probably settling) the cracks seemed significant to us so we contacted Pulte CS and they said they were not of the size that would be covered under their warranty (10 years) we called just after 10 years and Pulte repaired the cracks... We are very happy with the customer service & the quality of work.
We are Realtors, so we know all the 55plus communities we introduced our in-laws to this lovely community which has been their home since 2004, they still love SCSH and thank us to this day for helping them decide to leave OC and move to the Desert! They have many friends are are enjoying an active retirement.
SCSH is close to shopping, medical, entertainment. There is an onsite Restaurant w/ bar - Shadows Restaurant & Bistro at the Pro Shop! Two Golf Courses without membership dues! Tennis, Pickle ball, movie nights, Concert Series, Plays and so much more... there really is something for everybody to enjoy.
We've sold many homes in SCSH since it's grand opening and thus far all our clients are happy with their decision and appreciate the lifestyle offered with low HOA dues as of 1/1/17 $255 per month. If you are thinking of retiring a few years down the line, consider buying now at today's dollars ... it's easy to rent out homes in the this community to quality tenants, there usually is a shortage of lease homes available, so consider this option we are happy we have our retirement home waiting when we are ready!
This is a great community -- well managed, great amenities, the reserves well funded and low HOA dues. Couldn't ask for a much better place to live -- except for maybe an ocean close.
We spent many vacations in the Palm Springs area, so when we were looking for a snow-bird location, we wanted a place with a lot of activity and a chance to meet people and make friends. Gracie and the Nilson team helped us find Shadow Hills and the perfect home away from home. They handled all the details of the lease, and followed up on any details to make sure we got settled in and continue to take care of any arrangements necessary during our stay. We are now on our third year and continue to depend on the Nilson Team to find us the perfect home. We enjoy golf, pickleball, painting and many other activities. We have met good friends and look forward to coming each season. Wendy Wersal
My wife and I picked Sun City Shadow Hills because we love the active lifestyle. Pickleball is our favorite activity but we also participate in several other clubs too. We are never bored. The people are very friendly and we have made many new friends.
We were extremely pleased with our stay this past winter in SCSH.
We were looking for a community setting with a large variety of activities and the oportuniy to meet people and really get involved.
SCSH provided us with exactly that.
I really enjoyed the golf and pickle ball and Deb got involved with yoga and other exercise classes.
I've lived in SCSH for two months now and I couldn't be happier!! I've already joined a club and I've been going to their events every week. My daughter and I explored the gym and we liked it so much we went back the next day. I live here year-round and I've enjoyed every day - looking out at the mountains from my lovely back yard!!
Just bought our home on the golf course. The house is beautiful and the view is outstanding. Planning on spending our retirement enjoying this wonderful community
I bought a new home in 2008 and I currently spend two months a year in SCSH in California. I love my home with its gorgeous view of the mountains. Vacation Pools, Inc. put in my dream pool and backyard this summer and it is absolutely stunning. The Clubhouse is always hopping, The indoor lap pool is wonderful! So is the gym! SCSH amenities remind me of those in a five star hotel. And the ocean is only a two hour drive away! I have been coming to the Coachella Valley since I was a teenager and I always wanted to retire here so this is truly a dream come true: to live in this world famous golf and retirement resort and to spend my days outdoors and in my pool. This is one gorgeous paradise!
We have lived here as seasonal residents for the last 3 years. This is an amazing place . . . we are active golf and tennis players and this is the perfect place for our life style. It does get hot in the summer and we have some occassional windy days, but overall we love it.
We love it here! Never thought i would live in the desert! But after living here since 2005 we are convinced it is the best place to retire to for fun and peace. We are very active with playing cards bridge, mah jongg, singing, painting, performing in plays and musicals going out for lunchs and dinner with friends. What is so great is that most every one here is looking for new friends and we have found some great ones.
I have lived in SCSH since it open in 2004. I winter here and have many new friends. The life style is the best. Each morning my neighbors and I go for our morning walk down Sun City Blvd.
We have a small dog that enjoys going to the dog park that isn't to far from our home. My husband takes him each day and has many new friends also.
The weather is the best you just can't beat it in the winter.
There are many clubs to join and new friends to meet. I know anyone would be very happy at Sun City Shadow Hills.
