I lived in Summer Place from 1990 to 1999 and worked at Boeing, my wife died in 1998 of Cancer, her name was Joyce Pelfrey. Moved to Eugene in 1990. Moved to Green Valley, Arizona and lived here for the past nine years, To make a long story short I miss Summer Place and all the nice folks that live there. For my money it is the very best retirement places to live.

This si a lovely place to live. Everything you need is right here. The community and the clubhouse are just beautiful. It has all of the amenities at a fair price. The neighbors are welcoming and very friendly. As a new transplant, I am thoroughly enjoying my new home.

I have a condo.
Pro: Garage, fireplace, people are friendly, nice community facilities at Summerplace, grounds are well taken care of
Con: Not very far away are neighborhoods that are not very good. Condos not well constructed for sound abatement (more of a problem above or below not so much side neighbors).
