Our Happy Residents


Lisa and James M.

The Villages, FL

"We wanted to downsize and simplify our lives.  We want to travel, and not worry about maintaining a large house.  Knowing that the management team is here on site Monday through Friday is comforting.  We love all of the amenities and the property is beautiful!"

"What I love most about my cottage home at Lakeshore is it's full of light and I can open the french doors to the screened porch.  This allows for awesome indoor/outdoor living and a fabulous breeze. My dog loves this too!"


Linda and Matthew B.

Atlanta, GA

"The most important part of living at The Village is the strong sense of community, the available gatherings, and the sharing of activities. We feel much more connected than apartment living or even the typical neighborhood because of spaces like the community gardens."

"All the things they do for you here, the staff is outstanding. A community fire pit, community garden, they even send around an icecream truck on Sundays. It's been the best move of my life."

"If I had to narrow it down to one word, it would be freedom. I’m not tied to anything and it’s just right for me. I’ve got a great deck that overlooks the pond, and the freedom to do the things I want to do."


Norma and Ramon S.

New York, NY

"Our cottage home’s large screened porch faces an amazing view of Lake Andrew. Small birds fill the many Spanish moss trees throughout Lakeshore and put on a flight show. The sunsets are spectacular as the colors reflect off of the lake. Whats not to love? Come see for yourselves."

"I fell in love. With the vibe, with the homes, with the uniqueness of it all, with the simplicity - someplace where I just truly felt that I could be myself."

“It’s a little old fashioned. My parents always talked about growing up with front porches and front porch visiting and that’s what I feel like we’re back to here. Creating community through front porches.”

"The number one thing about Simple Life is the community and our neighbors. The friendships we have made here are the reason we’re not leaving, we’re not going anywhere else."

"Purchasing a home here is a relatively small investment, giving you the ability to put your money in the bank and travel and enjoy other things."

Atlanta, GA

"Sitting on my porch and people are walking by with their dogs and it’s, ‘hi how are you?’ getting into a conversation. You can’t really do that in big communities."

"The Sedona that we selected has an open-air feel and with being able to add on the extra bedroom it gave us two main floor bedrooms. The loft is our third bedroom and it’s great for grandkids."

"This is much more comfortable living. We don’t go out shopping looking for things, we are living for experiences."


Yavonka H.

Charlotte, NC

"I look through my bedroom window in the morning and the sun comes up and it makes my heart so happy and I can sit on my back porch and watch the sun go down at night and I’m thrilled."

"My husband and I recently purchased our tiny home and we just love it. It has all the amenities of a full size home so we don’t feel we are missing anything. It truly is living more Simply. The Village is beautiful and well maintained. It is wonderful to walk, stop at a meditation garden, sit on the swings and enjoy your day."
