Assisted Living Reviews for The Montecito Santa Fe

Independent Living Reviews for The Montecito Santa Fe

October 11, 2016

By Wendy454888

I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

I lived at The Montecito Santa Fe. I left there because it changed management and became more corporate. It was a very wonderful place to live, but when the new management came in, the whole place seemed to change. Most of the places on the grounds were condos, and they were only 15 facilities in the main building. The grounds were nice. The location was wonderful.

Provider Response

Lifehouse purchased The Montecito (AKA Rainbow Vision) a little over two years ago. At the time of purchase the community was at 36% occupancy, the restaurant was closed, the fitness center was closed & there was no activities program to speak of. Since Lifehouse took over the property they have put in over one million dollars in upgrades and maintenance to the property including the addition of a shuffle board court, putting green & billiards room. The exterior of all buildings were painted, the roads re-surfaced & the entire property was made handicap accessible. Currently there are less than a handful of independent apartments available for rent. The assisted living, which is 26 apartments, is full with a waiting list. We have amazing people running the Activity Department & our residents have a full calendar of outings and activities every month. We are the only community to have weekend & evening transportation hours so that our residents can get out & enjoy all Santa Fe has to offer. The fitness center is open & we are the only retirement community with a full time Fitness Director. We offer several different exercise classes including seated exercise, strength training & tai chi as well as one on one personal training. The Montecito was voted "Best Senior Community in New Mexico" & I encourage anyone who has not been to The Montecito recently to stop by and take a look. It is truly a beautiful and vibrant senior community.
