My wife and I moved to Waterman Village 2 yrs. ago after looking for a place we could call our forever home.  We are very happy we chose this place as the staff and residents are the best , you can do as much or as little as you want as far as activities go and is a great place to enjoy our retirement years.  It is nice to live in a safe , quiet , gated community that is very well laid out and landscaped . We are living our best life.
