Customer Reviews

Wouldn’t recommend, if on a budget. Expensive.

Seems a little understaffed @ times.
Stairs, hallways & laundry not always cleaned and/or vacuumed up to standards.
Otherwise, very nice place.

I truly LOVE it here!

I love everything about living here. I am on the fourth floor and I have a beautiful view from my balcony and there is an elavator so I don't have to climb stairs. I have a full kitchen with all new appliances and my bathroom is amazing! The staff are great all very nice even the maintenance man . I really haven't started taking part in the activities but they do have special events like the Happy hour that are available. I would recommend my community and I would encourage you to walk around and see just how friendly and welcoming everyone is here.

Wonderful Experience!!

My mother has recently moved into this community and so far I have no complaints. The staff have all been very accommodating to the best of there ability and helpful during this transition. She has had no problems with the food and is enjoying the activities with the other residents from time to time. Overall we are very pleased and would recommend it to anyone.

Wow! This community is awesome. The amenities, size of the apartments, serene view, and luxury-style living are so very nice. [Removed] are wonderful ladies and I so appreciate their working with me to help my mom find something that works for her. The residents and staff are very friendly.

Southwinds Active Adult Community

I have lived at Southwinds Active Adult Community for 7 years. It is a very nice community for Seniors looking for peace, quite and comfort.

It has a variety of activities and amenities available.

The staff is very courteous, polite and helpful. The facility is keep clean and well manicured.

I widely recommend this facility to Active Seniors looking for a peace of mind, comfortable living and meeting great people.


[Removed](manager) is not a good person to work with. She tells everyone's business and does not care about people who live there. If you have to talk to someone, speak with [Removed].

Not the best place to live

[Removed](manager) at Southwinds is very rude and tells everyone's business. What happened to privacy?? She does not know how to talk to people, She should not be in that position especially dealing with elderly people

Mom is Well, But I do Have Some Concerns

Mom is doing great in her new place at Southwinds and has settled in quite nicely, a little reluctant at first, but she has become more sociable (not used to having neighbors) and even helped decorate the resident Christmas tree last week. She also signed up for the resident Christmas party coming up on Dec. 16th.The only concerns my mom had with moving in was that 1) her name and apartment number was placed on the community calendar and table in the foyer for everyone to see and take a copy of without her permission (this really upset her, especially given her circumstances with the home assault and robbery which was the whole reason for this move), 2) she had to inquire with the property management office about the procedures for allowing access to visitors since this information was never provided to her, and 3) there is no overhead lighting in her bedroom, only wall outlets, so the only lighting she has is her lamp.So, I would strongly recommend and encourage Southwinds to 1) ask new residents for permission BEFORE publicizing their personal information, 2) make new residents aware of the visitor procedures either via a new resident orientation or including it in a welcome package (all my mom received was a card welcoming and thanking her for choosing Southwinds), and 3) have overhead lighting in every room.

Nice Senior Apartments

Everything has worked out well for my father here at these senior apartments. He is doing well and seems to have adjusted to it pretty good. They do good job with the keeping the community nice and clean, the grounds and facility is well maintained. There are nice activities offered, they have a small gym and pool tables. Overall these are lovely senior apartments and I would recommend them.

Southwinds is a gated community and the buildings are secured.

The people at the front desk are accommodating and helpful. My friends have moved into a new building that is currently only about a third full. They offer daily activities such as movie night, a pool, a card room and an exercise room. They have no worries if something happens to one of them as they know the other will be taken care of.

Southwinds Active Adult Apartments

It is not worth the money that they charge. The new building has shoddy work and the appliances are cheap. What a rip off. The Gym shower doesn't have hot water. What are these seniors paying for?


My mother lives there . everything they tell you is a lie to get you in there. The rent goes up every year. Everything in the kitchen is junk. Anything you ask them to do they take forever to do It. Management is not worth the pay they get. Never around. cheap paint on the walls and cheap carpet.

So Long Southwinds

We lived there for several years. In the beginning it was great, except for the office help, they were rude to the renters, even more to the older ones. As time went on, and apartments were getting hard to rent, management would run specials. All of a sudden things changed, we were having people move in and out, once the special ran out they afford to live there, some of the people moving in couldn't even take care of themselves, they had no family, management didn't want to be bothered, so many times it was left up to us to try to help out... management has "Happy-Hour" on Friday ... they supply beer, wine and snacks... so many of the residents were on medications and had no business drinking... management said it was a 2-glass, 2-beer rule... well once they left residents did what they wanted... yes, they were of legal age, .. [removed] He had tried to become "friendly" with several women, it took almost a year to get him out of the building. We were very glad the day we left... the place is NOT worth the money you pay for it!

My new family

come join this community. It is more than a community, it is one large family in one big house. It is great here.

It is a great place thanks ...

It is a great place thanks so much for you help 10+

They seem pretty happy and seem to like it pretty well.

They seem pretty happy and seem to like it pretty well. You can have a party for an anneversary or something, which is a nice amenity. There have been a few times when some young people have been invited to a party a resident will host and it can get a little loud. There is a little cafeteria area where they can have coffee and things. They have a shuttle to take you places. They don't have any complaints. We chose this for the low crime area, and because it's close to shopping, and it's a gated community.

Outrageously Gorgeous frien...

Outrageously Gorgeous friendly, everything under one roof. Heavenly. No one would ever come see me. too far from my friends.

This is strictly an Active ...

This is strictly an Active Adult Community, as advertised. The apartment building is very pretty, seems well maintained and is nicely appointed. Residents I spoke with seem very happy with the amenities provided and the rooms are a comfortable size. There is, however, no transition arrangement for when/if a resident may need an assisted living situation. The setting surrounding the building is quiet and serene with a lovely view. The apartments are fairly spacious and provide all necessary appliances. This would be an ideal situation, if Mom and Dad were 10 years younger and in better health.

Could have more varied activities

It's very clean, everyone's very friendly. My parents think it's expensive and I think it could be a little bit cheaper and still provide the same level of service. They have a movie theater, a gym, a bistro and one of those pools where you can swim in place. My parents complain a lot about being bored and they say a lot of other people do too. They have card games and catered lunches coming in sometimes but that's not what my parents want to do. If I was in charge of senior activities I would put flyers out asking people for suggestions and see what people like and what they want to do.

For senior apartments, it's four floors and a lot of walking. There's slopes outside and it makes it hard for them to walk, so it doesn't seem senior friendly. When they take out the trash, its just on one end of the hall and the building is a big horseshoe. When I visit my mom I take out the trash because I like the walk, but its hard for them.

This is a nice area.

This is a nice area.
