Windsor Lakes Reviews
- Jill P.|October 3, 2018When we first moved here everything seemed great. Price was good, location was good, area was good. Then we started having problems. Water was constantly shut off for whatever reason. I get it that sometimes it needs to be turned off do to working issues but no one ever knows when it will get turned back on. Everyone has a different story. Currently, we have been without water for almost 12 hours and no one seems to be working on the issue. Water issues have been the biggest issue for us living here.
Also, the pool has only been open half the time it was suppose to be open. Every time we tried to go they were always working on it and we never got notice until we walked to the club house.
They are quick to take your money and charge you a late fee but not fix the issues that need to be fixed, especially the emergency issues.
- John & Judy (Resident/Homeowner)|September 21, 2017We have lived here for 9 years and can't imagine our life anywhere else. We absolutely love living here. There are so many activities constantly going on, including very reasonable priced bus trips to sporting events, cultural events, casinos, etc. We get the greatest value we've seen anywhere for our monthly fees, including yard maintenance, refinishing of front doors, repainting of the exterior of the homes, security system, re-fencing, not too mention all the common areas. Plus, this is a gated community with the increased security that comes with that. We are in very close proximity to 4 (!) top hospitals, a plethora of shopping & restaurants, movie theaters, etc. We have a large lake nearby and a short drive to Houston & Galveston, where there are many cruise ships available. Homes range up to 3000 sf. We have many singles living here who also take full advantage of all the social & recreational activities. Homes for resale tend to be few and they tend to move very fast. The people here tend to be very friendly & sociable. We hope to welcome you to the neighborhood soon!
- Kathy (Resident/Homeowner)|August 1, 2017Very friendly, beautiful community. Well maintained, lots of activities. Glad we chose to come here. Homes sell quickly...not much turn over.
- William M.|June 28, 2017Really like this community and it's location to shopping and freeway access. Nice clubhouse with lots to do.
- Susan L.(Resident/Homeowner)|October 9, 2013I have been looking for a ranch home in this area and just looked at a couple resale options at Windsor Lakes. The homes look very well built and the community is nicely landscaped. All the homes have larger, established trees and plantings so the community feels more established. Being in a gated community is also appealing to us. This community could be a winner, I just wish there were more homes on the market right now to check out. We might wait another month just to see if anything else comes along.
