Average Rating for this Community

I bought here a year ago at 58 years old and Glad I Did. The prices are fantastic! It is EXTREMELY well maintained! They do everything from fixing your fridge and washer/dryer to plowing the snow to your front door. Flowers and bushes are beautiful as is golf course and country clubs! Plenty to do. Great investment!


Wonderful community, friendly neighbors, many activities and close to shopping


We just bought in LVW because the maintenance program is awesome, the complex is well maintained AND gated...mature trees, good floor plans, pools, beautiful lake, quiet, etc. The staff is happy & friendly. Love it...


There are so many advantages to living in LVW. I love the many mature trees that line the numerous walking paths. The entire complex is nicely maintained. I actually saw a maintenance truck stop to pick up a single piece of paper in the street. I have also enjoyed swimming in both pools where it always seems uncrowded. I have also found my neighbors to be friendly.


Exceptional Community to live in!


We love this community. The homes are affordable, the taxes and HOA fees are low and the maintenance is great. There are so many amenities and always something going on. There's something of interest for everyone. We love living here for the last 2 years and have made many friends. So glad we made this move!


This is a very well maintained gated community that is a great value. There are tons of activities!


This community is well run and well maintained.The homes are affordableThe amenities are vast.I am 59 years old and am very happy that I purchased a home here! Highly recommend LVW


The best part about this place are the home prices. You can get a decent place for well under $100k plus all the maintenance is covered in the association fees. You can get a good house and spend your time doing the things you really want to do rather than messing around mowing the lawn or shoveling.


Don’t move here unless your 70
