    Lived here for 5 years. Moved to another state recently. Community was okay initially. But after the election in 2016 became very polarized. HOA was impossible to deal with. Constantly attempted to suppress free speech and any political diversity. Facilities were inadequate for the size of the community. Residents were irresponsible when driving. Speeding, running of stop signs was the norm. HOA refused to address the issues. Numerous other problems with development. Glad we moved. Buyer beware.

    We have owned for 9 months and been here full time for 3 months. We love it. Neighbors have been wonderful, everyone seems so happy. There are many activities so anyone should find things they will enjoy. The pools are lot like being at a resort, the gym has very nice equipment and the 8 lighted tennis courts are kept in very good condition. The community is very well maintained and when there is an issue it is taken care of quickly.

    We are building in Island Walk at West Villages! Very nice area however IT IS NOT IN VENICE FLORIDA!!!! IT HAS A VENICE MAILING ADDRESS BUT IT IS ACTUALLY IN NORTH PORT! READ THE FINE PRINT! Don't go by what the salesman says. I specifically asked that question because right before you enter the complex there is a large sign that says WELCOME TO NORTH PORT AT THE WEST VILLAGES! Salesmans response was you have a Venice mailing address! lol I'm sure we will love it! Just don't like being misled!

    We are still moving in but already love the area. Our neighborhood is on younger side and very active which is what we are looking for. We have block get togethers and everyone is friendly.

    The facility is first rate. Beautiful pool (pools), 8 great tennis courts, biking and restful views from the lanai. What's not to like!

    Once we get settled we believe this community will be just what we are looking for . . . an active lifestyle . . . or just a place to relax with friends.
