Hello All !

I am wondering if anyone can tell us what living is like in Sun Lakes AZ. I know it has several communities and age restricted. However, what is it like living in the area? Any problems with HOA's? Wildlife or bug problems? Are pets allowed? We currently live in the Southwest and am considering moving to the Chandler area. So any info you can relate to us would be very appreciated. Thank you so much!

I don't live in Sun Lakes, but am just north of it in Ocotillo. The communities have TONS of clubs and activities to join and there is a mixture of active adults, older adults, and REALLY OLD people there. The HOA fee is about 100 a month but there are times they ask each resident to pay an assessment fee, or something, to be able to update the clubhouse, pool, furniture, etc. You have no choice. You have to pay it. I think Sun Lakes is a pretty nice place and you can take your golf cart to the grocery store !!!

Sun Lakes is basically the SE Valley's Sun City. It's a community specifically geared for adults over 40, and senior citizens. If you like golf, and don't mind the heavy influence of HOAs, then this is the place to be. Communities like Sun Lakes appear to be very pristine because of the HOAs, and there are few (if any) kids roaming around causing problems.

Life in Sun Lakes is a dream come true for my husband and I. Having moved from suburbia in the NW, this has been a peaceful escape. We golf, play bridge, sit around the lakes and enjoy a drink or two at the Country Club almost nightly. Whilst there are HOA fees, our neighborhood is assured to be aesthetically pleasing to the eye and noise levels at a minimum. We love the quail!

And if a wayward child should make their way in past the gates, we've found our Club Car rather useful in herding them back out.

My Uncle Lawrence lived in Sun Lakes, he was 86 years old. He died last year in September. I miss him so much. We had just connected for the first time in 58 years I was his niece and I was adopted when I was 2 years old. But, I found my Uncle just in time and he was able to tell me the whole story. I only had him in my life for 15 months. It's almost as if god helped him live until I could find him. I feel blessed to have met him just in time. He was a sweet, wonderful person. Anyway, Sun Lakes is a good place. He would agree. (3/10/2013)

Trudy: That is a wonderful story and so happy you and your uncle got to meet and have some time together. Sun Lakes seems to attract so many seniors, partly because of all the clubs and activities they have there. It keeps everyone young being involved and sociable.
