By |March 12th, 2019|

There is no shortage of creative and performing arts at PebbleCreek – from participating in creative arts to attending performances by residents and touring groups. Recently, Tonic Sol Fa, a well know professional accapella group, was performing here. And just this weekend, I was able to see residents (some of whom definitely have […]

Wildlife World is pretty amazing. Whether it’s that you are visiting PebbleCreek and want to venture out “beyond our gates”, or you have guests in town who want something local to explore – or you have lived here for years and just want to try something new (that would be me!) , Wildlife […]

By |February 8th, 2019|

Most folks don’t want to sit in their homes all day. Ultimately, the LOCATION of the home – both the primary neighborhood (PebbleCreek for example) and the broader community (such as the west valley of Phoenix), are critically important considerations when buying a house.

The west valley of Phoenix used to be […]

Visiting Rocky Point, Mexico

By |January 8th, 2019|

Many PebbleCreekers head down to Rocky Point, Mexico (Puerto Penasco) for the occasional beach get-away.   Located on the Sea of Cortez, the beach resort village is just a four hour drive from PebbleCreek.

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 […]

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 […]
