Be very careful when purchasing a home here. Realtors and developers do not disclose all rules and regulations prior to sale. With so many restrictions, many may not feel "free". There are many activities and volunteer opportunities -most at modest expense.
Bought a home in Sun City after researching other active adult
We think this offers the most things to do both inside Sun City
And nearby at a very affordable price.
I think values here will rise steadily over the next 5 yrs.
I totally concur with the other reviews that have been written. The reviews of SCHH that I've read are mostly from new comers. My wife, and I, have lived here ten years. We are as just as happy now, if not more, as we were when we first moved here. This is a fantastic community to live in, with some really great people, nice homes, and a fantastic lifestyle. We often refer to this place as a gigantic playground for we older folks. As the other reviewers have said, there is something to do here for everyone. Definitely consider moving here, if you're looking for a great place to retire. Beware though, that it does get hot, and humid in the summer, but remember that you'll be in the deep south, and also consider that it doesn't snow, or get too cold in the winter. You'll adjust to the H & H, and you'll be able to be outside playing practically the whole year.
We came here from Connecticut in October 2013 to avoid the high taxes & cold snowy winters. We found more than that here in SCHH. Lots of activities,beaches & things to do in retirement. We are happy we made the move!
Came here for a lower cost of living compared to Washington, DC. Had no idea how much lower it is down here. Folks up north have got a clue how much they are being gouged by there state and local governments till they come down here.
Also I wanted to retire near the water.
We moved to SCHH in 2010 after living all of our lives in the Charleston and Hilton Head areas. We couldn't imagine living anywhere else. The social life here is fabulous and we've met wonderful people. On any given day we can have something fun to do, if we want to. If not, that's ok too!
Our home here is lovely, the community amenities are outstanding and you'll have a great time living here. We HIGHLY recommend it!
I recently moved to Sun City from Long Island, NY and while it was a huge decision, we were lucky to find a beautiful house in a great location. . We considered quite a few different Golf Communities in both North and South Carolina but Sun City Hilton Head provides more than just the house. The community is amazing, the people are all friendly, helpful and happy to be here. There are a lot of options for residents in terms of golf, pools, shopping., clubs for just about anything you can think of, and you can be as involved as you want, there are so many choices. . The use of the web site to look from NY while our house was for sale really made all the difference in terms of "seeing" what was available and working with Real Estate people before you even show up saves an incredible amount of time and energy. My friends say I bought my house "on-line" and that's probably right! We are just here a few weeks, but I believe this was a great move for us
My wife and I moved into sun city on June 18th...2012..from Reading Pa...This without a doubt is the best move we have made in our 47 yrs of marriage...we totally enjoy the social life ...the amenities of sun city...the friends we have met already from Pa who now live here...and of course the climate ...if your considering a retirement move....this honestly should be number one on your bucket list....
This is a beautiful place. There are so many choices of activities and clubs to keep busy. You can choose to do a lot, a little, or just relax and enjoy a wonderful home.
We have been living in our delightful cottage for 6 months and love it. We just can't say enough about this wonderful place.
We highly recommend SCHH to everyone.
We have been residents since 2005 and have found a fulfilling retirement here. So much to do, we look forward to weekends so we can relax a little. People here are active, busy, learning and creating in so many ways.
If you are looking for a place to retire, as YOU define it, then Sun City Hilton Head is your new home. Homes are available new or from local realtors.
We love it here.
