When my husband and I, in our early 20's, moved here nearly 10 years ago, we were expecting it to be temporary. However, with the way the housing market sky rocketed, we felt selling, while we would've made a nice little profit, wouldn't be smart. We couldn't have afforded to purchase anywhere else. We had a great manager when we first moved in. She retired, and we ended up going through a few managers, before we got our current managers. They are WONDERFUL! They take care of this place. They maintain it very well, and have continued to upgrade the clubhouses. Contrary to what Jes675 stated, I don't find the newsletters to be anything more than informative, and humorous. The letters we receive for unmaintained property are NOT selective, and are not threatening. They are usually a form where the manager checks off a box that lists which violation you're in. They sign it, and put it in your mail tube. Again, the property here is very well maintained. As for each space, it is up to the owner to maintain their property. The neighbors can be irritating, but that is true for any place a person lives. Some neighbors are great, some not so great.
We love Sea Aira. The location is nice. It's exactly 3 miles from the ocean. The property is nice. It's close to the post office and shopping stores, and it's in the Ocean View school district.
Pros: A family community and well maintained
Cons: Mobile home living isn't for everybody. Space rent is high.
