Let's start with houses.
For golf course living, my vote is Pelican Pointe, where approx $200 per month, your lawn gets cut and you get to use the club house, pool, tennis and fitness center.
For non golf course, new construction, I would say Pennington Place.
For non golf course, slightly older resales, I would vote for Meadow Run, which offers a club house, fitness room, tennis court and community pool.
For non golf course, slightly newer resales, I am thinking the maintenance free section of Venice Palms.
If you want to email me your budget and wish list, I will send you a more focused response.
