After moving to VL in May of 2021 we 'ii give it five stars or at least 41/2. Is it perfect of course not but what community is. There are hordes of nice people here if your willing to reach out and be friendly. The pool/clubhouse/sports facilities are as good or better than any other we saw and everyone working here try's hard to be friendly and helpful. From what we've seen those that take on the thankless jobs on the various boards and committees do their best to keep VL a first class place. Being just off of route 301 there is a huge variety of stores, restaurants, medical facilities golf courses etc, etc from five to twenty minutes away. One often unmentioned aspect of a 55+ community is the quality of the construction. These homes are extremely well built and most are only a few years old. Almost all are move in ready. The landscaping is unmatched among 55+ communities in this price range.

We 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!

I 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!

A 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.

After 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.

Great active adult community. Entrance and main lake are beautiful. Upscale homes and the location to the beach and Tampa is ideal. Recommend!

We 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.

I 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.

A 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!!

Valencia 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!
