We moved here 2017..Love it! Ignore the older complaints about the pools ect. They are all open now and running beautifully. As for the children, only one is child friendly and only certain hours a day. As with all developments there are some issues but the overall beauty and level of resort style living of Sun City Carolina Lakes far out weighs some owners unhappy complaints. This is the nicest Community we have seen by far. So close to all we need, Shopping, dining, theater and perfect weather. If your not happy here, you won’t be happy anywhere. Husband and I are in our forever happiness🌴

Bottom line: No other active adult community in the Charlotte offers offers the full features resort style life that you'll find at Sun City Carolina Lakes. You've got to include it in your priority list.

We moved here from the SW because we wanted mild seasons and to escape extreme heat. None of our family lives close by, so making new friends and keeping active was our priority. Sun City is large enough to satisfy both needs. If you can't find friends who suit you or clubs and activities you enjoy, it is your fault, not the community. I enjoy arts, crafts, exercise, and creative outlets. Today I'm with others enjoying an "off-campus" writing retreat. Last night a bocce game. We lost, but had a lot of fun. Sun City is where I belong.

Sun City Carolina Lakes is not just a community it's a lifestyle. My wife and I have been amazed with all there is to do here. After looking all around the Charlotte region, there is no other place that has as much. Being retired,we want our financial resources to go as far as they can. Well we found the place. Great SC taxes, lower HOA fees than just about every other 55+ location, plus the county takes care of our roads saving us a ton of money. Take a look, I'm sure you'l be impressed as well. You can take advantage of what Charlotte offers and you're only a short drive to the mountains or the shore.
By the way, Michelle T. is mistaken. We never had guards, they were Greeters for people visiting the community when the builder was still here. Also there is a Family Swim time only on weekends for visiting families. Children must be accompanied by an adult. The times were picked outside the normal "rush" time. I've brought my grandchildren and have never seen a problem.

After an in-depth search of several 55+ active lifestyles communities within very close proximity to Charlotte, NC, Sun City Carolina Lakes clearly distinguished itself as "hands-down" -- the #1 marquis community during our selection process as we transitioned from New York 2 years ago. We were greatly influenced by it's expansive and impeccably manicured landscaping and unprecedented diversity of amenities - underscored by an extraordinary and highly active social lifestyle. Sun City Carolina Lakes is the benchmark and continues to raise a high bar for other 55+ communities who can't compete. Simply stated, this community is incomparable!

This community is the perfect size and location. Although there are many homes, they are divided by rolling hills and trees into small neighborhoods. And with several thousand residents, we have every club and activity you could desire. This location in SC has moderate seasons, easy access to everything Charlotte offers, yet not the higher taxes of NC. We love SCCL.

We moved here in 2015 & couldn't be happier You can be as busy as you want, learn new things, make wonderful new friends. If you aren't happy here, you need to look inward for the reason. Our kids call it "summer camp".

I have lived here for 6 year and every year gets worst no more security at gates our yards are not taken care of like they did at the beginning when they were trying to sell their homes. The swimming pool as more kids in it then the YMCA. The second pool that was to open over two years ago for adults only as cracks in ti so never opened yet. Now they are mowing our lawns on Saturday for 2 hrs a day between 2 and 4 we can't even have people over or sit out there and enjoy ourself on our golf view our barbeque we would have grass flying in our food. So for two hrs on a weekend we get to listen to the loud mowers and the edging and th loud blowers that is not right by any means and the complain about one extra pot in a yard I hate this place.
September 29, 2017
Watch what you are getting into. We have lived here for five years and bought a resale. Everyone in the community has a Pulty "beef". Foundation cracking is definitely and issue as is drainage and security. Although they now have "cameras" anyone can get in or out. No gates at the front entrance. The second pool has never been opened, except for a couple of weeks last year, due to faulty construction. Cheaply built.

Sandy Homeowner and Resident
Fabulous and Friendly Community. Previous review that most homes have cracked foundations is incorrect. Several homes in one small neighborhood have had issues with their concrete slabs. Pulte has been very responsive and repairs are being made. Yes, there are restrictions that we have to follow but that's what keeps our wonderful community clean and appealing, and happy neighbors. If you want to live in a trashy, eye sore community, then SCCL isn't for you! 140+ clubs and interest groups, sports such as bocce ball, pickle ball, tennis, soft ball, horse shoes, swimming, fishing, and the list goes on. There's something for everyone!

Moving across the country is a huge decision, especially at this stage of life. We were thinking about moving for a while, but when we saw Sun City Carolina Lakes, we knew this would become our new home. The amenities are beyond our wildest imaginations, we still pinch ourselves because it's almost too good to be true. The residents are so caring and considerate and everyone looks out for each other.

When I saw that we have a restriction on the number of pots that we might have in our back yard it has turned into a poor excuse for a neighborhood* I Have done my backyard very tastefully done.. Maybe 2 pots extra. This is a very sad community run by a lot do-gooders that they know nothing in taste.
March 19, 2017
Moved here mid-2016 and every day just gets better. I tell my husband that it feels like we're squatters at a gorgeous country club -- all the amenities seem too good to be true! No matter what you like to do, you can probably find it here. Unlike a lot of "active adult" communities I've seen, the population here is, indeed, active and involved in all types of fun activities. If you're not sociable, I suppose you could just sit and enjoy your lovely home, with gardeners taking care of your lawn, etc. But even if you can't participate in sports, you can play cards or paint or work in clay or sing....and on and on. Cannot recommend the lifestyle here strongly enough.
March 9, 2017
Just to update what was written here, Sun City Carolina Lakes now has two amenity centers, each featuring a huge ballroom, swimming pools and exciting outdoor pavilions. For the sports minded, there are eight clay tennis courts, eight pickleball courts, a fantastic softball field with covered bleachers, a dozen horseshoe pits and walking trails winding throughout the community. That doesn't cover it all but it might give you an idea of the immense opportunities provided our residents.

We just bought a resale house here this spring. So far it has been fantastic! The fitness center and the pools have been my go-to places for the past couple months. My health is already improving! Having an indoor walking track has been great for the really hot days and I can imagine it will be nice when the temps start to dip. Aside from our health improving our social life is like we're back in high school! We have meet a lot of nice people here and have jumped right in to clubs and activities. We feel encouraged by the other people living here and it's a wonderful feeling!

We moved here in 2010 and have loved every minute. It's like being on vacation every day. The amenities are fabulous. From our first visit to the community we knew it would be our new home. We've meet wonderful people here and love being involved with so many activities. If you enjoy being social and keeping busy you'll love it here!
September 19, 2013
Presently building our new home in this wonderful community, cannot wait until we move in and start this new chapter in our lives ! ! !
