The Del Webb community in Davenport Florida is one of the best 55+ communities my husband and I have seen. After much research online, then a trip down to Florida in person, we were so impressed we purchased our home there. The facilities are excellent, the neighbors friendly, and the activities are varied and has something for everyone. We lived in a 55+ community in Virginia, and Del Webb far exceeds the amenities that we had in our former community. We highly recommend Del Webb to those looking for an active 55+ community. you will not be disappointed in the community, the neighbors, or the affordability.
In 2012 I began a serious undertaking-that of looking for a place to purchase a retirement home.
Approaching this undertaking from an analytical view point, consideration was given to factors including weather, proximity to a major airport, tax considerations, affordability, quality of home construction and access to health care. Softer analysis (but just as important considerations)included a location that was enticing to family and friends to visit, menu of community amenities and activities, and the personal fit with people already living in the community. Using these factors, I visited communities in Florida, Arizona and Texas during 2012 and 2013 so I could make an informed and intelligent decision from an up close and personal experience.
After careful analysis, my decision was to join the community at Del Webb Orlando. Del Webb Orlando ended up ranking first in each of the factors I utilized to make my decision.
My advice to anyone looking to find a retirement home is to take the time to identify the factors important to them as they look to live their dream. Research those factors and then jump in and enjoy. Best wishes with your decision making.
I am writing this review to inform you about my new home at Del Webb Orlando and the experiences that I had throughout the entire
big purchasing event in my life!
From the moment that I drove onto the beautifully landscaped Del Webb property until the moment that I walked into our beautiful new home the entire process was and is a skillfully orchestrated process!
I did my homework prior to purchasing here! And I believe Del Webb Orlando is the best new home solution to your quest in a 100 mile radius! It's location is soo convenient to Orlando, attractions, international airport and Shopping (that is my passion)!
The beautiful clubhouse is so current with the latest and finest workout equipment and an indoor and an outdoor pool! The poolside events are fun to attend! Golf and biking, walking paths, tennis court , pickle ball are all right here!
And...if you love playing cards ( did I mention that this is another of my passions!) then come on and move in! Crafting and sewing and knitting and groups that meet to talk about the days' events in the world and local area...are fun too! And if IT isn't scheduled?? Then just get IT started! In other words there's something for everyone!
AND my new home is everything that I ever dreamed of! The home selection was assisted by the fine sales team that are here! Then the fun began..picking out what you wanted your new home to. to look like inside and out! Onto the building stage..this company schedules you come into the unfinished home in different stages for your inspection! WOW that was a great step during the entire process!
Finally your home is ready and the mortgage company, insurance and other information needed for your transition is made easier and smoother for you because they have it all spelled out for you right here!
I am now settling into my beautiful new home, playing cards, shopping and loving the neighbors and new acquaintances.
Hmm .. I forgot to tell you about the beautiful landscaping that comes with the purchase of your home! Just Lovely! It's Soo nice to drive through the community and up to your home and seeing all of the beautiful landscapes!
I am so happy to be calling Del Webb my home!
From the very first day that I contacted Sue Melton to the present ..Sue is and was a very personable sales professional! Her passion for the business of connecting people to their dream home is unquestionably the finest that I encountered on our pursuit of a home and community that I could love and live in!
Another fine quality that I treasure in a person and sales professional is honesty! Sue demonstrated that quality through out the entire process! She skillfully guided us and yes at times went the extra mile! We were in the final process of signing on the dotted line..it was a rainy miserable day..however Sue offered to run and get lunch..and she even took our 2 dogs out for a walk in the rain ..so that we could continue selection process!!!
She is a committed real estate professional! I'm very thankful that
We connected..viewed the model homes and loved the community!
Yes we did purchase a wonderful 2 story home..we're just settling in and enjoy our new home ..our neighbors and the beautiful club house!
If you are looking for a Real Estate Professional that is personable, helpful and extremely honest and sincere...then look no further!
Sign me a Happy Del Webb Home Owner!
Del Webb Orlando is a total ripoff. Before you buy, you should ask if the outdoor pool is heated - It's not. Want to swim after dusk on a warm summer night? - You can't! Like to sit out by the fire pit for an outdoor concert in the winter months? - Sorry that has been broken for a year! Miles of walking trails? Hmmmm No, more like sidewalks!
Do you want to change something here at DWO? No, sorry. the PULTE controlled board is unresponsive. They only care about selling you a home. The hell with you after you move in. God forbid you have a warranty issue.
This is a warm and friendly community. We looked for three years before we settled here. One of the main reasons was the golf course so that my husband could play daily. Waking up, getting in the golf cart and going to the course was very important to him. I'm all about the people, and I think we have the best here. They're our extended family, truely there if you need anything. Another reason was location, Disney just 15 minutes away, a place that the grandkids want to visit. Easy access to airport, and shopping, which I like to do. It's been 5 years since we move here and we are as happy now as we were back then. With that I totally recommend Del Webb Orlando as a wonderful place live.
When I say we looked everywhere in Florida- I mean EVERYWHERE - east coast, west coast, north of Orlando - we saw many, many "over 55" communities. We settled on Del Webb Orlando, have been living here a little over a month and are absolutely ecstatic! The residents are wonderful - very friendly, welcoming and down to earth and the community is a beautiful setting of residential homes and spectacular landscape with a lot of green space. The amenity center is to die for - a state of the art fitness center (where you can watch your own personal tv while you are on the treadmill), beautiful pools, tennis and pickle ball - you name it! The clubs and lifestyle programs can keep you busy 7 days a week if you like. It is great to have a golf cart to travel to the golf course or just ride throughout the community and you absolutely cannot beat the location - who doesn't love Disney! The proximity to theme parks, shopping, the airport makes it so very convenient. We have only been here a little over a month and it already feels like home!
This is a beautiful, quiet, gem of a neighborhood and we feel so fortunate to live here. Shopping and theme parks are nearby and the beaches are about an hour east or west. We believe we hit the jackpot finding this hidden oasis.
I have lived in Del Webb Orlando for almost 5 yrs. I love it here and hope this is my last stop in life. It is one of the most friendliest places I have ever lived. Pepople are great, lifestyle program is great. I have made so many new wonderful friends and they just keep moving in.I could be busy seven days a week with doing things at our beautiful clubhouse or going out and doing things with friends.
We also have location, location. It's so close to anything you would ever want to do or see.That means alot to me, I always hated having to travel so far just to go to dinner or the store and I like being close to the airport.
The location of Del Webb Orlando and the many varied home styles available appealed to both my husband and I. We were happy to find what we consider an ideal spot to make traveling to work (school and Walt Disney World), shopping and the airport all within an easy 5-45 minute commute. The ammenities at our Montecito clubhouse are resort-like; our tireless Lifestyle Director provides countless opportunities for fun and relaxation geared to the requests and interests of our community. Lastly, the diverse community is made up of caring everyday people who are looking to enjoy life and the social commaraderie afforded at this beautiful piece of paradise.
