We chose Arbor Trace because of the size, which houses about 300 people. We have three varieties of residences: villas, mid-rise five stories, and a tower with 17 stories. There are lots of choices within a very natural Florida environment. My husband and I are in independent living. The staff is young, very talented, efficient, and prompt. We are so busy with the activities that we could hardly keep up. Another feature here is all of the residents eat in the same dining room. Although there are three types of residences, there really isn't a separation. We have a club house and the dining room is in the club house, so everyone interacts, which is nice. Every holiday, every birthday, and every national event is celebrated here. I am used to things very well organized and well maintained, and I think this place is a little short of that. The trees aren’t trimmed often enough, but everything else is better than anywhere else we could have gone. The rooms are very big in the apartments, which is very unusual, with 10-foot ceilings.

My mother had the very good fortune to live in Arbor Trace for three years. It was an excellent experience for her and for her loved ones who were happy to see her thrive in the friendly,supportive environment. The facilities are beautifully kept....clean and pleasant. The pool always sparkling and inviting, the grounds well manicured and the interior common areas are lovely.
There is very little turnover in staff, which says a lot to me. We never encountered a staff member at any level who was impatient or rude....quite the opposite!!! Residents are treated with care and respect and everyone knew not only my mother's name, but also her immediate family's names. It is a very loving and family-like environment.
There are many activities offered, something for everyone. The residents are also friendly and caring with one another adding to the warm feeling you can't help but notice. Finally, the dining room experience was consistently exceptional. I had an extended visit and ate there many times. The quality of the food is excellent, and again, the service is top-notch!!!!
It's been an excellent experience. We've been here three weeks. The staff is better than excellent, and the apartments look excellent. It came with a refrigerator, washer and dryer, and hurricane shutters. I have a gluten free menu included everyday. The dining room is restaurant like, with a waiter and a wine steward. My husband participated in coffee times. I used the pool, the hot tub, socialized, and had neighbors over for cocktails. We elected Arbor Trace because you purchase there -- you're not just making an entry fee or paying rent.
I visited Arbor Trace. They have a high rise if you want to buy into that. They have things around the lake that are one bedroom or two bedroom. The reason I don't like Arbor Trace is I don't want to eat too early, I have to be there around six o'clock at night. And the food was not that good. The waitresses and the maitre d' and the people I met were very nice. It's very nice and very well done. The rooms on the high rise are very nice and overlooking the gulf of Mexico. It's a two bedroom, living room, kitchen and bath. The dining room itself was fine, I just didn't enjoy the food that much.
