"Quiet, Friendly, Beautiful Neighborhood"

Reviewed:

We love living in this neighborhood! While it is about 15-20 mins south of base, it's in a rural area while still being very close to Dover as well as the beaches. The neighborhood has a good amount of military families and most of our neighbors are very friendly! It's a perfect place to raise our children.

Pros Cons
  1. Quiet
  2. Nice neighbors
  3. Building new houses regularly
  1. Lack of gas station nearby
  2. Neighbors outside of the development can be a nuisance

"Sweet, developing neighborhood"

Reviewed:

We were a little concerned before we moved into this neighborhood because it was in a very early phase of development. From the day we moved in, the neighbors have been incredible. I can call on almost any of them, any time, for anything I need help with. There is a great range from singles, to young families, to empty nest older couples. Kids are always outside playing and almost every house has a dog that we love seeing. It's the kind of small, close knit neighborhood where you know everyone's names, including their pets. It is a safe neighborhood, but there has been some petty stuff such as people going through unlocked vehicles (sadly, this is common in a lot of neighborhoods). It is still only half built up at this point and at the moment there is no tot lot/park area. It is about 12 minutes south of the base which is a very easy drive and there is more than one route to get to the base. It's about a 15 minute drive to your nearest grocery store and Walmart, about 45 minutes to Rehoboth, and about an hour to Wilmington. We will be very sad when we leave this neighborhood.

Pros Cons
  1. Great Neighbors
  2. Nice Houses
  3. Wood surroundings
  4. Great location
  1. Underdeveloped
  2. No play area for kids
  3. Narrow streets
