Valencia Lakes Reviews
- Alvin C.(Resident/Homeowner)|October 22, 2020We lived there for 5 years up until October 2020. Just horrible! Minorities are not welcome here! Rules only apply to those who do not belong to their exclusive clique. Bad place to live! So happy to be out!
- Vickie B.|January 25, 2020We love Valencia Lakes. Its like living in a resort. Always something to do from cards to sport activities.
- Julio H.|January 22, 2020I have NO regrets in moving to Valencia Lakes. Beautiful homes and amazing community! The neighbors are very friendly and are very involved in life. We met many new friends that we truly enjoy interacting with on a regular basis.
Our community is in a transition period as we have a fairly new board and I remain very confident that they will continue to work hard to maintain our grounds/facilites to the prestine levels that we are accustom to. Wonderful place to live!
- Jean D.|January 10, 2020A resident of 5+ years and wish I hadn't moved to Valencia Lakes. The first four years I lived here Valencia Lakes was very nice. Once the developer closed out and handed the development over to the resident POA, the entire community changed for the worse. The POA directors do a terrible job, hired a horrible property management group, more cliques than any place I have ever lived, neighbors have restraining orders against other neighbors, residents cheat at cards and other games, and residents steal from other residents. If I had known this community was headed in this direction I would not have moved here.
- Nate |January 1, 2018After researching several active 55+ retirement communities in FL, GA, SC, and VA, wife and visited Valencia Lakes in May 2017 before heading to Greece for 3 months. Nancy (Sales) and George (Realtor) plus the Valencia Lakes residents and staff were supportive, friendly, informative and just wonderful. We stayed in a model Genova home and fell in love with everything. We sold one house in 2017 and listing another one in May 2018 to move to Valencia Lakes. It is more than a resort, it is a place where "active" retirees come to squeeze all of the life out of remaining life.
- Mara P.(Resident/Homeowner)|November 20, 2017Fabulous clubhouse with a variety of events for everyone. Gated community. Great fitness center. Numerous clubs. Most of all...friendly and helpful residents. Nearby theaters, sport events, museums and ongoing community activities.
- Todd W.|December 23, 2016Great active adult community. Entrance and main lake are beautiful. Upscale homes and the location to the beach and Tampa is ideal. Recommend!
- Betty & Charles (Resident/Homeowner)|June 4, 2015We looked at two other 55+ neighborhoods in the area and our Realtor George Hahn wanted us to look at one more place (Valencia Lakes). All it took was driving in through the Gate and seeing the beautiful landscape, lakes & ponds,Barrel Tile roofs and a feeling of "this is where we want to live"!
We purchased a Villa and are very happy. We have met so many wonderful residents and they all have the same to say "how much they love living at VL". We are almost full time and cannot wait until we are. So many activities and enrichment programs available. GL Homes has a wonderful reputation and all of their employees make sure it stays that way.
- Robert B.(Resident/Homeowner)|June 26, 2014I am a new resident at Valencia Lakes in Wimauma Fl. This community has
everything you would want in a over 55 community. The facilities
are over the top. The residents that we have met are mostly very friendly
and willing to share the experiences in the community and the area.
We are very happy with our decision to locate here.
- Wayne N.(Resident/Homeowner)|March 22, 2014A great building experience from start to finish. When we moved in we were greeted by neighbors and builders who were so friendly it made us feel home right away.
Moving in felt like the first day on vacation in a tropical resort. It is beautiful everywhere you look.
After two months we still feel like we are on a wonderful vacation!!
- Susan L.(Resident/Homeowner)|June 25, 2013Valencia Lakes has been wonderful! Everything is new and modern, the tennis courts are fantastic and the pool is beautiful. As the previous poster said all the amenities are very nice and there is always something going on. If you want to try something new you'll find it here. I tried line dancing and ceramics last year for the first time and have been having a great time! I also enjoy gardening, quilting, book club and painting.
My social calendar is always full and I like having something fun to look forward to every day whether it's just a feel-good exercise class, a lazy day at the pool or something bigger like casino night or a special volunteer opportunity. The sense of community here is wonderful!
- Glori (Resident/Homeowner)|April 16, 2013No regrets in moving to Valencia Lakes.
The neighbors are up beat and involved in life.
The community is wonderful and maintained always.
The clubhouse has everything, even a wonderful restaurant.
Areas outside of the community, there are many stores, shopping centers and medical facilities with 2 hospitals within range.
Enjoying my new home and community with no regrets of moving here.
