Average Rating for this Community

The process was smooth and the point of contacts through out the process were outstanding with me. Thank you all for your patience and hard work in helping me acomplishing the ultimate goal of purchasing a home.


The adult community lifestyle and amenities makes for enjoyable living for those people over 55 years of age. I have joined several groups and have found my retirement years to be rewarding and busy.


We moved to Sweetwater 4 months ago, and we are loving life here! So much to do if you want to, but peace and quiet when you want it. This is the perfect place to enjoy an active lifestyle in retirement. Check it out, you won't regret it!


Sweetwater is wonderful! My husband and I have lived here for nearly 2 years and are still impressed with the community and everything it offers. The architecture of the clubhouse is beautiful and the landscaping is meticulous. Our condo is right on the water and is perfect for the two of us!
We frequent the clubhouse and are very active in lots of different clubs. Del Webb really outdid themselves with this community! We wanted a Del Webb community and on our first visit here we were sold. It's perfect!
