Cottages for Sale and Lease, RV Pads and Plenty of Amenities Bring Retirees to Large, Active Adult, Resort-Style Community

 
Viewpoint RV and Golf Resort, located in Mesa, Arizona with the Superstition Mountains as a backdrop, is a large active adult community that attracts snowbirds, RVers, year-round residents and golfers.   This development offers motor home (RV) spaces for lease but also has cottages and larger homes with RV ports for sale and a few for lease.  Travel trailers and 5th wheels are also welcome.

The RV-port cottages are very cute and have from 385 square feet (one bedroom and one bath) to a little more than 1,000 sq. ft. (two bedrooms and two baths); new homes start for sale in the low-$30,000s (pre-owned homes are even less).   These residences may be located on an interior lot or near a golf course, and they can be purchased completely furnished.   Cottages with 400 sq. ft. to 600 sq. ft. are also available for lease annually and range in price from $1795 to $2995, including utilities and resident privileges.

 

 

For those retirees who own a motor home, Viewpoint charges space leasing fees, which include free local telephone service, free cable TV, water, sewer, refuse removal and a private mailbox with mail handling service.  Daily and weekly rates ($59 and $275 respectively) include electricity and water, but monthly rates ($449 to $950), seasonal rates ($2,399 to $4,399 for three months and $3,049 to $4,799 for six months, depending on the lot size) and annual rates ($5,499 to $8,175, depending on lot size) do not.  RV cottages and leased RV spaces are mingled together throughout the community.  There is also a pet section for those with furry friends.  Visit www.viewpointrv.com for more information.

Viewpoint has an impressive number of amenities, including two golf courses, an 18-hole and a 9-hole, that feature gently rolling, tree-lined fairways, sparkling ponds and winding streams.  There is also a driving range, and three PGA professionals are on staff.  Further amenities include 10 tennis courts, 3 swimming pools, a softball diamond, volleyball courts, shuffleboard, horseshoe pits, a state-of-the art fitness center, a hair salon, a spa, a sauna, a post office, a laundry, a massage therapist and a full time activities department to manage it all.   

 

The Terrace Green Events Center is the setting for social activities, which are many and varied.  They include dinner shows, comedy tributes, well-known outside performers, a concert series, theme parties, cabaret reviews, ballroom dancing, poker tournaments, sock hops, casino nights, a dinner theater, karaoke events, Western Week, masquerade balls and more.  There are also more than 100 groups and classes to enjoy.  Terrace Green houses Champions Grill, a causal dining restaurant overlooking the golf course.

This is a very active community, well-kept with manicured lawns, lovely landscaping and situated on the east side of affordable, growing Mesa, a city with a population of 450,000 and with a lot to do.  There are 52 area parks, 4 area lakes and another 30 or so nearby golf courses.  NASCAR racing, casinos, Tonto National Forest, major league baseball spring training, the Mesa Arts Center, museums and the Mesa Symphony present retirees with plenty of diversions.  Summers are hot and dry (mid to upper 90s) and winters are pleasant (50s and 60s).  Crime rates are slightly above the national average.
