Very Established 55+ Community of
Dreamland Villa is Outside of Phoenix in Southern Arizona and Has Single Story, Single
in Mesa, outside of Phoenix in southern Arizona, Dreamland Villa is a
large, established 55+ community with more than 2,700 single family
homes neatly placed across 200 acres. The community was
built from 1959 until the early-1970s, well before the concept of
"master planned development" had taken hold, and it has
18 different sections.
A quiet, modest community, Dreamland's homes are all single story, with
approximately 900 square feet to
2,200 square feet, two to three bedrooms and one to two
baths. Residences sit close to one another, and they all
look somewhat alike. Some
homes have been updated, but many have not.
Dwellings have either an attached carport or a single car
garage. Streets have sidewalks, and all yards have
landscaping that consists of a few bushes, maybe a palm tree,
perhaps a wild looking cactus and lots of small rocks. Some
homeowners have painted their rocks green to simulate a
lawn. Home prices start in the low to mid-$100,000 and top out
at around $200,000. Check with a Realtor to verify these
prices as they may change. Owners also have to pay for Rural Metro
Dreamland Villa does not have the bells and
whistles of newer 55+ neighborhoods, and the community was originally established without
even an HOA. After a lengthy legal battle in the 2000s, it still does
not have an HOA. It does, though, have the Dreamland Villa Community Club
(DVCC). Joining the DVCC is voluntary but is required if
a homeowner wants to have access to the community's
amenities. These include two clubhouses,
which between them have three swimming pools, hot tubs, a ceramics
studio, an arts and crafts room, a cards room, a computer room, a
woodworking shop, a library, a community theater, an amphitheater
Dues paying residents also enjoy a rich menu of
activities, clubs and events that includes coffee socials, potluck dinners,
sing-alongs, a book club, a singles club, a golf league, a water
volleyball group, a walking group, a bowling league and many
others. Annual DVCC dues are in the $200 range, but please
verify this with the community or a real estate agent as dues rates
