“We were looking for a place with a temperate climate, in a gated community with beautiful vistas, but yet close to a city which offers good medical facilities, performing arts and restaurants. Not only did we find our ideal spot here at The Cliffs, but within hours we were embraced by our new neighbors and were welcomed into the social life of the community. Golf and wellness were also important to us, and both have far exceeded our expectations. We built our dream home here and needless to say, we have enjoyed every moment in this spot we now call home!”
