I am a friend or relative of a resident

Mom is very happy at Villa Serena. We just moved her in there last February. The residents are really good, and the people who manage the community are really attentive to everybody there. It’s an older place, but the actual rooms are really big. The food is very good. The activities director is really energetic and always tries to motivate people.

I visited this facility

I wasn't that impressed with Villa Serena. It was more of a managed apartment complex with staff on-site 24/7. It appeared like an old apartment complex, which is not as convenient for an elderly person needing assistance. The common dining room was fairly functional, not great or terribly inviting, but probably did the trick. As far as social programs, it was minimal.

I have been a resident at Villa Serena for 2 years now. I enjoy the lovely garden and was impressed with the apartments compared to the others I toured when I was first looking for a new home. The housekeeping staff is exceptional and the kitchen staff is friendly and attentive. I was also very please to find a home that accepted pets because I have a large cat that I could not part with. The other residents are friendly and I feel at home here.

Manager could not understand his accent. Dirty building. Rundown. Falsely advertised as assisted living.

The rooms at Villa Serena were actually apartments, and they were roomier than here; very nice. There were around 12 or 14 apartments in the building, and there were 6 buildings, really nicely landscaped. Everybody had either a small garden or a patio, and they were very nice. I was concerned because the buildings were apart but the dining room and all the activities were in one building, and so you'd have to go outside of your building and be around the little wings, and I am not really good on my feet so I was concerned about rain.

Villa Serena it was really nice. It was a great facility too. But the set-up was really different. It was more like an apartment complex where there were separate buildings with a common eating area.

I liked Villa Serena because the people were more friendly and the neighbors were nice. The apartments were better. The restaurant was very nice. They had two chefs serving the main course, which were very good.

Villa Serena has lovely grounds, and that mattered to us a lot. It's so beautiful here. There are six buildings that's stretched out the length of the lot. Alongside of them there are beautifully decorated, manicured grounds that go the whole length of the lot. You don't have to step onto the sidewalk to do anything. We can walk around and take our little dogs for walks. They're very, very pet friendly and they're building a little dog park in the back. I think the staff are excellent. They are very kind and very friendly. There are a lot of young, sweet people working in the dining room and doing the housekeeping. They are interested, caring, cheerful and friendly. It makes it a pleasure to be here.

What I really liked about the Villa Serena was their larger one-bedroom apartment, which was a little under 800 sq ft., and 1/3 bigger than the usual. That was really a big plus for me. They had a different kind of layout, which was more casual and the price was good. The meals were fine too.
