My husband and I moved from Ft.Lauderdale recently to Oak Run. We had been to several of the "hot spots" with all of the amenities but nothing matches the beauty and affordability of Oak Run. We are in our late 50's and both of our remaining parents moved here as well! I liken it to a cruise ship wirh lots of a activities. You can do it all or do nothing and are never far from gorgeous , well maintained pools and fitness centers. There are clubs and dances...exercise and fitness opportunities....sports and did I mention the beautiful golf course? Nicest people in the world live here as well! Best kept secret!
This is a poorly managed community. The common grounds are not well maintained. The exercise facility is not well maintained. Equipment is not repaired or replaced in a timely manner. There are other issues that residents complain about.
We bought a house here last October (2013) We still have another home up north, but we come down here often. The people here are friendly and there are so many opportunities to get active and meet people. Kudos to the maintenance and pool people. We love to swim and the pools are always gorgeous and well maintained. Shopping, restaurants, etc. are so accessible. We don't regret purchasing a home in the beautiful Oak Run neighborhood.
out of the heavy trafic ,Ocala is a nice place to retire, even on the weekends, restaurants are easy access. oak run goooooooood any way you look at it, afordable,well maitained ameneties are great.people of all walks of live are there to make you feel at home ; away from the snow.....i have been around ...this is good!
Good place to be,nice people,the amenities are great....and for us canadians....nice and warm.
PS: the executive golf run being closed gives us a 4 star instead of a 5........let s keep hoping...
This past year I purchased a home in Oak Run, across from the Island club. Not only did I get a great deal on the home I purchased, I have some great new neighbors. The amenities here are extensive and well maintained. Comparatively, the HOA fees are low as compared to other communities in the area. The only reason I don't give it five stars is that the actual homeowners do not own the HOA, it is owned by the developer and we are not privy to the financial stability of the HOA. Other than that, living in Oak Run is akin to living in paradise.
We got a terrific deal on a home in the "historic district" of Oak Run. By that I mean in the first neighborhoods built. There is plenty to choose from to do. People are friendly and if you are bored, it is your own fault. We visited many communities in our search for a FL home, and we feel we found the right combination of quiet and activity for us.
This is a nice place. They have left a good deal of green space throughout the park so that many homes have a good view and a very private feel. After living in several other retirement communities in the Ocala area, Oak Run gets our vote for the best bang for the buck.
If you're looking for a good deal in Ocala this is the place. Lots of homes here well under $100k, they just need a little TLC. It's a good community for affordable living in a nice location with all your basic amenities.
