Default We Did It!

We found our retirement home. We close on a CYV on Littlestone Terrace in Cottonwood Villas in Tamarind Grove on April 20th. Really excited about moving down this summer. We are looking forward to meeting our new neighbors and start living the good life.

Happiness to you oldnewt and your bride! You are gonna find out just what happy is!

I think you made a very wise decision and here is my wish for lovely days for another hundred years.

I guess they'll be calling you the New-newts now.

We're coming down April 18th for a week long LSV and we most likely will buy a CYV. I look everyday at the available spec homes that are under construction.

Did you find your home from the website or did your agent show you the home? It sounds as if your home was fairly close to completion if not already finished. I know the villas are different than the designer homes, but if the villa is not completed do they allow the buyer any input as to cabinets, carpet choices, appliance color?

Congratulation oldnewt on the purchase of your home. Your going to love it down here.

John, the CYV come as is to my knowledge. I told my sale person .. no white cabinets or appliances, no loop carpet. Ended up finding us a Bonita with cherry cabinets, bisque applicances and pile carpeting. Just tell him what your looking for and I'm sure he/she won't have any problem finding you the perfect match.

Default Thank You

Thank you all for the warm welcome.

John, the sales agent showed us several pre-owned and new Bonnita CYVs. As stated previously you cannot change anything in the new ones. The one we picked was almost complete. The refrigerator was not in and my wife asked if we could upgrade and was told no. That was not a show stopper for us just a future frig for beer in garage. Hope you find exactly what you are looking for.

Congratulations, oldnewt! In August we plan to begin building a cottage home near you in the cul-de-sac at the end of Ansley Path. I'll tell them not to stir up any dust
