The best--any opportunity you could think of. The people are the friendliest. I have been here a month and still have not heard one resident complain about a single thing. Love it Love it Love it
If there were more then 5 Stars we would rate this place higher! We never imagined the day we drove through the Front entrance what beauty and awesomeness would be brought before our eye's! This place is like a Paradise Resort, with lot's of beautiful Lanscaping! We moved here a year ago and also could not believe that we could afford to live here. We were so happy to have found our "Forever Home" and look forward to many great fun years here. The Pools are great and the Jacuzzi's are a way to find yourself some pure relaxation and comfort to your body. There is so much to do here, that if you are bored it is your own fault. So many people to meet and Club's to join and to many more things to list. Being able to drive your Golf Cart all over the place is an added bonus! You have to come see it all for yourself. We thank God everyday for sending us to this wonderful place and having two great Sales people that went out of their way to help us find our "Forever Home"! As they say we are now "Home Sweet Home"!
Never in our wildest dreams would we believe that we could live in such a wonderful place. We bought here in 2000 and have never regretted one moment. Driving through Kings Point in our golf cart, we can enjoy all the outstanding landscaping throughout this huge community. It looks like a tropical botanical paradise everywhere you look. The beautiful pools are a wonderful place to exercise, meet new friends, and relax. There are actually 3 heated outdoor pools and three indoor pools, including an unusual resistance exercise pool. We have sauna, steam rooms, hot tub spas. Every club imaginable. If there isn't one, you can start one! Fitness, dancing, cultural, music classes are provided by professional instructors, mostly for free. All I can say is, we must have done something right to deserve to live here.
I am a new resident and am very impressed with the community. In particular, my wife and I wanted very nice indoor and outdoor swimming pools and lots of activities. Kings Point has two very large, heated outdoor pools and two large indoor pools. There are about 200 clubs. Transportation is provided such that a car is not necessary. If you choose to own a golf cart, it does not require a state tag. You can go to grocery stores, doctor offices, and the hosptital in a golf cart. There are 7 golf courses Sun City Center. Trips in vans are available to many local events including professional ball games and plays. There are 2 clubhouses with the larger being almost 100,000 SF and has a huge auditorium. Professional entertainers are scheduled. We are next to a state park with canoeing and kayaking. There is more, but this gives you a good idea.
Our recent purchase of a condo in Manchester IV was a dream come true. As recent retirees from the teaching profession, we always wanted a second home in Florida especially on the Gulf Coast. By passing the cold winter month was always a major goal. Sun CIty Center met and exceeded our needs both in location and amenities.
Our agents are 5 star real estate agents. Going far beyond normal duties to close in 30 days after signing the contract. Our new neighbor on the left welcomed us this first day while our neighbor on the right provided a sit down lunch shortly afterward. The president of Manchester IV oversaw the installation of a humidistat while were back in Kentucky. Everyone we met seemed like old friends.
Looking forward to our first winter as snow birds this October. Hoping to be full time residents soon.
The homes at Kings Point are priced right and the social atmosphere is great! Between the two of us we've tried out more clubs than I can remember. Bingo, bowling, euchre, chess, pinochle, fitness classes and we're considering trying out a few new ones soon! There is always something happening and the neighbors are very warm and welcoming. We are really enjoying everything here and recommend it to all our friends.
The first week we moved in there was a block party to send off the "snow birds" and everyone was quite welcoming. We are just ending our second week and so far we have: gone to the pool six times, been to Karaoke twice, played pickle ball, bought a golf cart, eaten at the club twice, auditioned for a play, put fifty miles on my bike and have more busy having fun than I thought possible.
Minto (the builders of our new home) have been very professional and responsive to a small number of concerns. My wife and I could not be more pleased.
The 55places.com web site was a life saver and our real estate agent, informed our decision making process. He showed us around and gave us the ground level local knowledge that led to our happy landing in Kings Point, FL. That is a long way from where we started in California.
