Have had connection (via relatives) to this community since 1980's - maintenance fees continue to increase with care of community going down. Aging community needs more care and its not being paid attention to by board members. Spend your money elsewhere. Avoid Lakewood!
We are here 1 month so far and still unpacking so we haven't checked out any of the amenities yet. We have called the maintenance crew for minor things and they are quick to help. The neighbors and association members who we have met so far, seem very friendly and helpful. The HOA fee and taxes are low which makes for a more fun lifestyle. (that is when we finish the unpacking part of our move) All in all, we are happy we chose this community and look forward to a leisurely life near the shore!!
Location, location, location and price! I love being so close to the shore and the price can not be beat. Great amenities are included here and my home is maintenance-free. I finally have the time to do fun things in life and I can afford to do whatever I want since my house was so cheap as well. Leisure Village is a great buy!
