Sun City Huntley Reviews (14)
Sun City Huntley is conveniently located near I-90 for easy access to O’Hare & Chicago. Huntley is a great, friendly little town.
The only thing better than all the activities in Sun City Huntley are the residents. Everyone is so kind, caring, and friendly. They welcome new neighbors with open arms and cookies! This is the BEST place to live! It's like living in a resort all year.
We have not regretted it for a minute and love it here more than we could ever imagine. We have more fun and friends than a lifetime in Springfield. We can be as busy (or not) as we want to be. Darlene is involved in the Tennis Club and the Huntley Hoofers Tap Dance class which are both new endeavors. Darlene is also a caregiver to Jerry and the support of neighbors and friends are unbelievable. She also attends the Sun City Caregiver's Support Group.
Sun City Huntley has been an absolute blessing for my wife and I. My wife has become far more active in the social scene than we have ever anticipated. She is a regular participant at water aerobics, quilting, and even volunteers at the local schools throughout the community. I enjoy living a lower profile life, tooling around occasionally at the fantastic woodshop on site.
The biggest surprise when moving here was how friendly all of our neighbors were. We bought a new construction home and found that nearly everyone around us was in the same boat as us. Moving in at the same time was also nice. There is a nice mix of singles and couples and while all age groups are represented, the overall vibe was much younger than I anticipated. Unlike me, many of my neighbors still work full time jobs.
Not everything has been perfect. If we could choose a home again, we probably would have picked a floor plan with one more bedroom and additional storage space. We also had a construction delay when moving in and had to wait a few months before we had grass. However, overall the Deb Webb staff was accommodating and put us at ease. They even came to our home several times after moving in to make small repairs. All things considered moving here was a wonderful decision.
