    We were part time resident/ full time Homeowners for nearly 10 years and this Community devolved from a premier experience to an unpleasant place to own. Arrogant boards of directors failed to maintain the property amenities and allowed disputes with the Developer to create substandard landscape maintenance. With new Department of Transportation plans and the ongoing Developer issues a smart buyer would avoid this Community. Major future assessments and other financial liabilities from poor management will ultimately lead to buyer's remorse. Choose a different community as this area is a wonderful area to experience.

    Ocean Ridge is paradise for anyone who loves the outdoors. We belong to Big Cats too and golf a lot too. We love Sunset beach and all the trails. Staying active is very important to us and we love all the options to get out and do things here. We also enjoy the community garden and the huge nature preserve (over 300 acres I believe). We don't fish on the lake but it is beautiful to look at!
