I am/was a resident of this facility
We are at The Renaissance. We have been here for about a year and a half, and we are satisfied. Our villa is fine. They refurbished it entirely before we came. They put in a fireplace for us, and there is a screened-in porch that they completely enclosed and remodeled. They seem to have an awful lot of activities, but frankly we don't take advantage of many of those because we're living independently. One time each month, they go out to lunch somewhere on the other side of town, and they also go out to dinner once a month. They have very good transportation.
We are quite pleased with the surroundings. What really stands out? At least from where we are, there is plenty of space both inside and outside. We have our own garage, and out the back, it faces eventually onto a golf course. The golf course goes all the way around The Renaissance, so it is quite spacious. Especially in the spring, it is magnificent. They have two or three rather large ponds with ducks and all. So it's the grounds that stand out.

Looks nice, but be wary and ask a lot of questions. The Renaissance nickles and dimes its residents to death, and raises its prices for EVERYTHING, annually, to the full extent allowed by the resident contract. Administrators even go so far as to force residents to pay for services the residents don't want or need. Yes, there are many staffers there who are quite nice and caring. Unfortunately, once you get up the food chain to real decisionmakers, it's all about the money and how much they can milk from residents' before they pass. This is supposed to be a non-profit CCRC. So much for that.
