I visited this facility

We had lunch at Aston Gardens, and it was excellent. The dining area was extremely nice. We had no qualms about the place. It was easy to go around. They had medical facilities that they provided. They had transportation. The apartments were very nice. We only saw one, but it was big enough for use except that the lanai was very small. Other than that, the kitchen was beautiful because most of the people there still had the old-fashioned electric rings on the stove. They activities like swimming. They had a putting green there. We were really excited about it. We could go there without a doubt. However, the day we were there, the policy was that men had to wear long pants in the dining room after 4 o'clock, which did not appeal to me because I did not even own a pair of long pants. I found out a week later from friends that we referred there that that was changed and they could now wear shorts at dinner. You could have a continental breakfast and a dinner or a lunch, not both, but there was enough food for the people. You could take a doggie bag up and have it that night if you wanted. It was very close to a public supermarket. You could walk there.

The staff was very nice. We had a good feedback from other people we knew, and they loved it. From, what I had seen, I would recommend it to others. If you were walking from the outside into the building, the door would automatically open for you.

My parents were in Aston Gardens before. It was very nice. The staff was just fine, but it was independent living, so there wasn't a lot of interaction.

Provider Response

Hello, We do appreciate your feedback and will look into this. However I am confused on 2 things if you could help me with. 1) Does this person reside here at Pelican Pointe? 2) What type of interaction do you mean? We would be happy to discuss these.

We visited Aston Gardens. The people were very well informed, very friendly, and cooperative. They were very helpful with the inquiries. The facility was extremely well set up. It was beautiful, and it had beautiful grounds. It was very nice because it had the three levels of care -- independent living, assisted living and memory care. The apartments were very well planned out. We had lunch, and the food was excellent. They did a wonderful job. It was a very good experience. They had a wide variety of activities, and they also offered transportation to doctor appointments and churches. The daily calendar was very well put together. It is a very superior facility.

I like Aston Gardens at Pelican Pointe. It’s clean, and its location is excellent. Some of their residents were asked to be ambassadors and talked to us about how wonderful the facility was. They serve three meals a day. I also like the fact that you can have a small dog, and you get a first floor place.

We like the Aston Gardens. It was so beautiful. They do have covered walkways to apartment buildings. So if it is raining, you could walk and not get wet, but if you don't want to walk to the main building where the dining room is, they'll come with a golf cart to take you to the front door and drive you back if you don't want to walk or if you can't walk. The dining room was absolutely elegant. The food was delicious. The waiters and waitresses were very polite. The apartments were gorgeous. You have a kitchen nicer than my kitchen now, e.g., granite counters, all the appliances you could possibly want, and nice cupboard space. All the units have a small lanai. Each unit had its own washer and dryer, and that is a great feature. The hallways were well lit. They have a beautiful swimming pool, a beautiful outdoor Jacuzzi, and beautiful palm trees all around. Aston Gardens was gorgeous.

Services here at Aston Gardens are excellent. My apartment is spacious yet cozy. The housekeeping staff is courteous, pleasant and mostly effecient. The dining room is a beautiful place to enjoy various food served attractively by attentive staff. There are many enjoyable activities, games and lectures to keep me busy and interested. As needed, there is medical help, transportation to my doctors, security and a "fix-it" squad as well.

Among the things I enjoy in Aston Gardens the most are the camaraderie and companionship with everyone, the activities, food, and the carefree lifestyle. Here, we have no home to take care of and things are done for us. What more could I say? I existed in Georgia. Now, I am living in Aston Gardens!

After looking into fourteen independent living complexes, we chose Aston Gardens as the one that met our needs the best. After living here for nineteen months, we still believe that we made the right choice at the right time. We have made many new friends, have partaken in many activities, and have felt at home. We recommend living in this place and be surrounded with a caring and friendly staff.

The employees in Aston Gardens are friendly, helpful and good. All workers go to the extreme for your comfort. The buildings and apartments are in good condition. I cannot state anything negative regarding the place. I am so happy to be here!

From the gatekeepers, cart drivers, maintenance men, clubhouse staff and security personnel of Pelican Pointe, they all deserve appreciation. I feel safe, secure and I love living here. A big thank you to you all!

My father was in independent living at Ashton Gardens. Ashton Gardens was great. He had a wonderful apartment with a nice kitchen, a microwave, and a dishwasher, which he never used. He also had washer and dryer in the apartment. There was a lot of entertainment. The dining room was luxurious. Everything was really wonderful. The relationship between the residents and the staff was very good. The only thing I didn't like was that if for some reason a resident couldn't get down to dinner, they charged $7 to bring up the food up. If he can't make it and you have somebody to go pick it up, it is $4.

I looked at Aston Gardens and decided to keep looking. The staff seemed confident and pleasant. They offer many activities, like games and trips. However, the rooms were small.

Aston Gardens is clean and friendly, but the food is absolutely terrible. It is bland and tasteless, and they do not have provision for any special diet. It has many amenities that I really liked, but I cannot live there because of the food. They have a pool, fieldtrips, and companionship. My friend who lives there is very happy.

I visited Aston Gardens, and it's a very nice facility. They have a wide selection with regard to their apartments. We did not eat there, but we saw their dining room, and it was very nice. They have activities, and they gave very good information on what things were going on. They have game rooms and pool. They also go on short trips. Overall it was good. I have no complaints about the place.

I drive by Aston Gardens at Pelican Pointe all the time. It was a nice-looking place. They also have assisted living. It looked nice and I thought it would be a nice place to live. The rooms that I saw were nice; however, the people that showed me around didn't really impress me like they wanted us.

I looked for many places for my relatives in Sarasota County and Aston Gardens is by far the best. It is clean, well-run, staffed by experienced professionals, and everybody looks well-taken care of and happy. The dining room is lovely and elegant with a friendly staff. If anything needs repairing, someone is quickly at the door. It is a quality place and the price is right.

I am currently staying at Aston Gardens. The staff is very congenial. The food is fine. The room is very good. The surround is well maintained and clean.

Aston Gardens is very new and upscale. They would have buses to take them shopping and to their doctors. But you could still be independent and have your car there. They had big, big units. They had a nice dining room, a bar, a little library and an exercise room. They have a calendar of events with classes and field trips. It's one of the best around the area.

I visited Aston Gardens last year and was very impressed. The apartments give you the feel of independence that makes the residence feel comfortable. They have a very nice dining area that gives the feel of a nice restaurant more than a cafeteria. All the staff members that I encountered were very friendly and sincere. I work at a local hospital and have spoken with many residence and they speak very highly of this facility. I found it to be very clean with very cool Mediterranean architecture. There was a very nice pool area and several residents were pool side. The layout of this facility makes it very easy to move from one building to the next. There is a real sense of community here. While I was visiting a relative, 2 different people came by to check in since my car didn't look familiar. This made me feel like the place was very safe. They also had fence (and gate) around the complex and visible security.
