How much do you LOVE Landscaping?

By |August 21st, 2018|

I have a fairly BIG yard.  It is full of plants that would never survive in my native midwest and east coast enviornments; it is dependent on a full yard irrigation system; and it requires professional oversight.  Every month or so, I scub down the front and back patios in an attempt to keep […]

The Maricopa County Parks and Recreation Department has 12 parks facilities throughout the region that offer challenge, adventure and a wide range of outdoor opportunity.   Estrella Mountain Regional Park and White […]

Not a “Joiner?” Why PebbleCreek May Still Be Right For You

By |July 19th, 2018|

As people plan to move to Arizona, I hear it a lot… “We are really not joiners…..; it does not make sense to move to an Active Adult Community.”

It IS true that 55 Plus Communities market themselves as places to get involved.  And for many people, knowing that there is bound to be something of […]

Top 5 Questions I Hear About Life In the Active Adult Community of PebbleCreek

By |July 2nd, 2018|

I do a lot of Open Houses in the 55 Plus Active Adult Community of PebbleCreek, so I spend a lot of time talking with folks who are thinking about moving here.  Once they hear that I am a full time resident, I am often asked about activities and life satisfaction, costs of living and […]

Robson Reserve at PebbleCreek – What is it?

By |June 5th, 2018|

You can’t miss the construction.

Just outside the PebbleCreek Tuscany Falls gate, a large multi-unit residence is being built.  The project, years in the planning, is an independent and assisted living residence for seniors that is expected to open in spring of 2019.  The property is being built by Robson (the same builder as PebbleCreek) and […]

Theatre, Broadway and the 55 Plus Lifestyle at PebbleCreek

By |May 23rd, 2018|

I am not going to say I went to Broadway all the time.  But between living on the east coast as an adult and growing up in Chicago, theatre was always a possiblity for me.  I remember my jaw just involuntarily dropping during the opening of Lion King.   “For Good” from Wicked still brings me […]

Working Out at PebbleCreek

By |April 23rd, 2018|

For the last couple of weeks I have been staying active by trying some of the gym classes at the active adult community of PebbleCreek.

Pretty much everyday lately (Monday – Saturday), I have been in one class or another (and sometimes two!!), trying out the various offerings.  I would not be able to pick out […]

Living in a Home Owners Association

By |March 26th, 2018|

Oh Boy.

Living in a 55 Plus Community means coming to terms with living in an HOA.  Heck, for the most part, living in Arizona is going to mean coming to terms with living in an HOA.  In other parts of the country HOAs are not as prevalent, but since residential Arizona is being built largely by […]

I Am Not 55. Can I move to PebbleCreek?

By |March 21st, 2018|

Yes!  The Active Adult Lifestyle in PebbleCreek does not require that you be 55.

Remembering that I am not a lawyer and if this is a serious matter for you you might want to ask a lawyer to review the documents, according to our HOA Covenants, 20% of the homes here in PebbleCreek may be […]

What is there to do at PebbleCreek?

By |January 24th, 2018|

PebbleCreek reminds me over and over again of a college campus environment.  It would be impossible to take part in every activity at a college – and you wouldn’t want to.  The active adult lifestyle that PebbleCreek offers is similar – I will probably never get to the Ballroom Dance Club and I can’t see […]
