This is truly a Place of Bondage for Senior Citizens! This retirement community is to be avoided. Not only are they guilty of false advertising practices but also very poor management/maintenance of the park. It is actually owned by Equity LifeStyle, Inc. of Chicago, IL whose motto is "profit over people". The maintenance is non-existent here; the pool and spa are only open three months a year that is when they are not closed due to poor maintenance or cited by the city for being a health risk. There is no fitness center as advertised. There are very few activities. The management is anything but friendly or helpful. There is no fulltime maintenance person leaving the park in disrepair. The lake it advertises as being on, only five home sites actually are on it and have a view of it. The streets and sidewalks are crying for repair. When it rains the roads often flood. And then there are all the trees; limbs falling and leaves everywhere. And don't forget the feral cat colonies that infest the community living under the homes, leaving their feces all over the place and of course leaving paw prints on vehicles. If you like hearing crows caw all day long and leaving their bird poop everywhere then this is a place for you. Most people complain about the conditions here. Look elsewhere to live don't make the mistake we did which was move in, quickly realize it was a bad decision and are now looking for somewhere else to live. Oh yea the rent is increased each and every year at 4% along with never-ending increases in utility fees (some say illegally) with less-and-less services being provided by FWV. NOTE: the corporation that owns FWV has a very bad reputation and recently had a Calif. jury award over $100 million in punitive and compensatory damages for the same practices going on at this community. The billionaire owner of ELS has been called “a grandma gouger”.
