Hi, I have been living in Orlando for the last 2+ years, need to rent a more affordable home. Currently live in Dr Phillips but between utilities, lawn,pest ctrl and rent, we cannot save money to buy a home.

Have been looking at different areas and though Williamsburg is close and seems safe, the homes are too old and not very affordable for the square footage.

What are your thoughts of Hunters Creek? Specifically Eagles Landing or any of the golf course communities. Appreciate your input. Have a 14 month old and a 7 yr old who goes to private school. Would still drive him to school so that's not an issue.

Also, my parents are moving to Meadow Woods and wish to be closer to them.

Thanks.

Sounds like you made a decision. Hunters Creek is nice, strict HOA, Southchase could be an alternative.

HC is fine. Will def save you some $$$ over Dr Phillips, although you'll be a bit farther from restaurant row, the attractions and I-4. You'll be more dependent on the 417

Are you hispanic?

Do you like parked cars on lawns?

If so, you should fit in nicely in Hunters Creek.

Dont listen to americandreamdead. If people parked their cars on lawns in Hunters Creek they'd face HUGE hoa fines!

I live in the Hunter's Creek area. Its pretty nice down here. Even the older homes are well kept.

If you wish to save some money on hoa fees but STILL live in the Hunter's Creek area. Look into the Deerfield Subdivision as well as Whisper Lakes (where I live) Most of these homes are mid-80s to early 90s construction and are just minutes from Hunter's Creek and are more affordable

Southchase is good as a previous poster stated. I lived there for the better part of 2009 and had no issues, I liked it actually. Another good option is Falcon Trace at the intersection of Town Center Blvd and Balcombe Rd, its located directly across from Hunter's Creek as well as Endeavor Elementary school

Back in 2008, I lived in Settler's Landing which is right next to Eagle's Landing off of Hunter's Creek Blvd. I think these may be the oldest homes in Hunter's Creek, however they are still extremely well kept and the residents are very friendly

Good luck!

I've lived in Hunters Creek for seven years. There are more hispanics in Waterford Lakes, and I've never seen a car parked on a lawn. I like Hunters Creek because the HOA here is a strong one.
