Purchased in Providence 4 years ago and remodeled. Plan on retiring next fall. We visit every opportunity. Our neighbors are terrific, Customer service has been outstanding. We have lived in every time zone in the US and we have never been as pleased and satisfied as we are in OTOW. We have found peace and tranquillity in an absolutely beautiful setting. Best of the Best in our humble but well traveled opinion! Could not be more pleased!!!

I have lived here for quite a few years. I have seen a decline in how OTOW maintains it's community. Leaves are falling, increased risk for falls. They blow leaves back on to yards and in to gardens. They smoke and throw the butts on our lawns. They won't allow us to cut down trees in front, but they don't keeps us safe from leaves covering did repaired roads. If I wasn't at this stage of life and health I would move. I would not consider this community if you are looking.

Beautiful community with well built homes at prices for all budgets. Sales and design staff are wonderful. There is customer service on site where you can sit down and discuss any questions you may have regarding just about everything. Overall OTOW is the best community to choose to live and enjoy all it has to offer.

To be honest, at first this community was not our first choice. However, after doing our due diligence and looking beyond all the PR of other communities we discovered what a true gem OTOW is. The amenities are equal to The Villages plus you do not have to wait days for a tee time. We also love the security. There are guards at each gate who diligently check IDs. Our neighborhood has the ambience of an old southern neighborhood. The streets are lined with huge oak trees that provide a gorgeous green canopy for our evening walks. Also our neighbors have been so welcoming and everyone we have met has been a pleasant experience. The dog parks are a fav spot of ours along with the new Veteran Park. I can not wait to develop my skills at archery, bocce, and shuffle board. As we approach full retirement we wanted a place where we could have a great lifestyle without a huge financial investment. OTOW is perfect for us. Our biggest complaint is we are not full timers yet.
