Average Rating for this Community

Verandah is a beautiful place to live and is relatively close to everything! We love being out of the busyness of the city and have plenty of activities here. Really nice people live here!


The homes here are a great price selling for about $100 a square foot right now. I just bought a place a few months ago and I'm very happy with the home, the community and the location. For everything you get here it's a great value. Golf, fitness center, swimming pool, trails and even restaurants right in the community. Very nice!
