We moved in to Valle Verde last year and could not be happier. The residents are friendly, fun to be with, and active. The location could not be nicer - a large property with mature plantings and all single story units, and it's pet-friendly. The staff is warm, caring, and responsive. The food is tasty and there is a great deal of flexibility and choice in the food plans. It's not a stuffy place, but one that says "home" to us.
