Average Rating for this Community

Our home is being constructed as I speak. My wife and I will be moving from Michigan to Florida in December. We have met a few some of our neighbors and all seem to be very friendly. Phillip has been a big help keeping us informed on the updates of the construction process. We cant wait to meet our new neighbors on Bedford Ave. Troy and Lace Patton


Perfection from start to finish.Purchased in November and given a completion date of May. Home completed May 5th.Given updates during construction and satisfied with the building process and timeline.Sales were polite and professional giving us all the information to purchase and complete the sale with no outstanding questions or issues. Construction on site manager and construction VP were all quick to return my calls and address my concerns and questions.My home is finished and there is construction on both sides of my home. I do not have any complaints about the time of construction or the noise from the sites. I have not been disturbed by any workers or machinery.We purchased this home to relax and enjoy ourselves and I know we will accomplish both. P.S. Meeting the neighbors and using the facilities now that we have officially moved and both are five stars*****


We have lived here since the development first opened and are more than satisfied with this wonderful community. There are so many amenities and wonderful activities throughout the year. The staff is outstanding and always try to accommodate the community. Thank you Lennar for being responsible for this wonderful community!


This community is well maintained and looks nice all the time. It is nice to not have to do yard work. On the down side, a lot of the residents have lived here a long time and are clickish at dances and other socials. It causes the new residents to feel like they do not fit in. I am not the only one that feels this way. I have talked to other new residents that feel the same way. They play Bunco once a month and that is a lot of fun. We have been told that the clubhouse ballroom is not big enough for all the socials. My husband and I have found some where else to socialize with people our age and we have seen other Traditions Residents there.


Supposedly this is suppose to be an adult community. You would not know it if you went to the pool in the afternoon. It is filled with kids and inner tubes misbehaving and running around. They are taking up the pool and there is no room for us to enjoy the pool so we have to leave. What are we paying for the HOA fees for?
