Buyer beware!! Moved here 1 year ago because we were told that the community was gated & had great trails for walking and biking. Bike access to the trails has been banned, the community is not fully gated (residents from surrounding communities come & go as they please) and the gate access that is in place works intermittently. One positive is that most of the residents are friendly and helpful.

Our community has been pretty creative with food trucks and other delivery grocery services (like Picnikins, who are GREAT) to help us stay home and stay safe. I do miss the social functions with the Resort closed, but amenities will reopen after the county get a grip on this disease, and the hospital stress level improves. We're getting there! This is a great, friendly place.

HCR has been the answer to a prayer for my wife and I. Though I am retired and my wife is disabled, we are at a loss for time to do all of the activities presented to us. This is truly a community for ACTIVE adults. We have lived here for four months, just moving into our new Village Builders-Lannar home two weeks ago. In that time we have made more FRIENDS who share the same active attitude as we do. Our community is in the perfect location to explore TEXAS and America. Our trips are most often with friends but occasionally just the two of us. HCR is a great place to live with FRIENDLY ACTIVE neighbors!

So far everything has been very good. People you meet are friendly, the grounds are neatly terraced, Pulte employees are very helpful. Making changes to the home and will probably be moved in by the end of April.

I also received a tour, and went back today to receive more information. And of course this is in the Hill Country--people forget that this city has changed and that not that long ago, 1604 was considered to be in the hill country. Geesh. Try living here since 1957 instead of 1983...

It's located in Alamo Ranch so that it's more affordable for development. If it were downtown or on I-10, the lot prices would be over 150K. As for me, I don't want to live in Comfort or commute through the crowded I-10 corridor. This resort is so quiet that the loudest sound I heard today was an air conditioner, although it competed with chirping birds and cooing doves. I think this is the place for my husband and I--I just turned 55 last year, but the community is rather youthful, and like us, most of the residents are still working. It feels like home, and yet, it feels like a permanent vacation. Hope to make the move soon.

This is a beautiful neighborhood. Had a tour by current residents. I do not like the location of this community. 1604 at Culebra is a mess of traffic and construction. Del Webb needs to build another 55 plus community somewhere else in San Antonio. I've lived here since 1983 and know the area extremely well. I'd love to see a community like it built near 1604 and I-10 and or downtown. This community is not in our Texas "Hill Country" and in 5 years it will no longer be a retreat with all the new construction going in around it. Dell Webb can do better! How about a community near Comfort (to keep prices low)?
