Just a little slice of Heaven.

Gary U - Verified Resident (Since 2003)

Been here nine years, hit the gym three times a week, play golf twice a week, wife is involved with all sorts of activities, both of us are in the local Photo Club. Erect and breathing, active all the time. Great friends, clean streets, friendly neighbors, activities ALL the time. What more could one ask for? Nothing.

So glad we chose OTOW-Ocala!

Karen R. - Verified Resident (Since 2005)

This was the right choice for us. We love it! We got the most home for our money, great neighbors and friends, security, and more activities and classes than we could possibly keep up with. It feels very 'homey' to us, like a real community (versus a resort), which is what we wanted. It's a great place to be retired!
