What the Neighbors are Saying

It's one thing to form an opinion based on your first impressions of a neighborhood, but it's another to hear from the people who call it home.

The neighborhood is quiet and full of friendly people. Plenty of sidewalks and parks make jogging and walking the dog a breeze.


I love the school district, walks at Chambers Bay and the small town community feeling!


It is a great place with great schools, parks and community happenings.
