You have to be very rich to afford living here and I am personally sick of hearing about all the trips you women go on. I haven’t been to one meeting here where after the meeting, people stand around and talk about what country they are going to next. It is disgusting. I was never fortunate enough to travel anywhere but the US in a station wagon full of my siblings and parents. It was horrible. I never flew on a plane until I started working for IBM and took a lot of business trips. Back then I could afford a beautiful brand new house in Boulder CO at 25 and raised my foster children there. There is no judgment whatsoever in Boulder. It is one of the best places in the country to live. I started working at age 11 until I went away to college and was able to buy myself, at age 15, a 2 year old red mustang. I have spent my life helping those less fortunate which is why I am not rich and never have been. I spent the past 25 years taking care of 3 families in the Philippines, even put my first sponsored child to college. I joined my first animal rights group at age 10. At 12, I was sending huge boxes of diapers to a woman who was connected to a South Korean orphanage. I donated money to most animal rights groups, and for conservation efforts for decades. I didn’t save for my retirement because I spent every available cent helping others and I knew I was getting my pension for retirement.I live in the ugliest house in the community. I have never lived in a dump before, and this house is worthless. The entire dump needs to be remodeled and I have no money to do anything. Dumps like this shouldn’t even exist in this community. If something breaks, I can’t afford to fix it and the ugly house needs total remodeling. I can’t believe some morons actually had this dump for sale and should have disclosed everything wrong with it before I bought the house but they didn’t. Anyone in their right mind wouldn’t sell a piece of junk and not disclose everything that is wrong with it. I despise dishonesty. This is not a caring community. It used to be when Carefree first started but that is when normal woman lived here, not very rich lesbians like now. You have designed a community where the rich can’t find enough trees to plant in their yards because they are loaded and it gives them something to do between trips. Where is the affordable housing here? You have created a community where the middle class can’t even afford to live here unless they have a partner. And you call yourselves lesbians. Shame on you for building a community of very wealthy women who don’t care about really helping others. All you care about is where you’re traveling to next.It is also not a friendly place if you aren’t in one of the cliques here. Just like high school. No one talks about feelings or anything real. All these rich women could sponsor several children at a time in the US and ensure they have food, shelter, clothing, but no one really does anything here worth mentioning. Feeding a few homeless people is nothing.

Cindy I’m glad you decided to move someplace else. We don’t need people with your attitude to live at Carefree our community deserves better.I’ve lived here since March 1999

If you are going to criticize get your facts straight. There were numerous inaccuracies in your critique. No one pays clubhouse dues that cannot use the facility, I could go on, but I have other things to do. You apparently have nothing better to do than trash a community you do not even live in.

If you would have ever told me that we would be living in Florida, we'd have told you that you were crazy. We're northerners and knew nothing of gated communities unless you were rich. My mother lived on the east coast and all I saw were pavement and palm trees. Then we discovered the west coast with its preserved lands and natural beauty. Then we found Carefree... YIPPEEE!We love the place and we love the people. Our house sustained no damage during Irma because of great planning by the developers. We were grateful for their expertise and commitment. The place is also beautifullly maintained. Yes, it is a bit pricey but that is why.Our place may be a women's community but that is not the most unique thing about it. It is the love and caring for each other; helping people in need, supporting people in transition, celebrating a milestone, celebrating an accomplishment, or just celebrating. We do it well. That is what defines us. We also have an unbelievable amount of talent and expertise among our neighbors who graciousfully share what they know and make us better for it. Arts and athletics are integral to our community and all are welcome. If you are looking for a fun and active community with a great bunch of folks, this is the place!
by Two happy women from Virginia! on SeniorAdvice.com 09/07/2018
This a wonderful community that we have the pleasure to live in. There are groups here as some have mentioned. We have a band, chorus, bell choir, writers group, card playing groups, biking group, kayak group, arts groups, and many many more. We are a happy group that doesn't always agree. That is true in any community. We are concerned about our neighbors that's why it's a gated community. We do want to know who is coming in our park. It's called neighborhood watch. The two reviewers with negative comments have never LIVED here. We live it here and never plan to move. I have a feeling they will never be happy no matter where they live.

My dear friends live there...are in the process of leaving. This is a community loaded with petty, vindictive women. They are so afraid of the outside world that when you pull in there gates you have to stop to make sure no one pulls in behind you. They do not like the outside world, they are very anti-men and it is a sheltered existence that is cult like indeed. When someone drives through the gate if they are not known to all, they are followed until they reach their destination within the park and questioned as to why they are there, who they are visiting. Its sick. There are petty disagreements with the entire park taking sides. The boards of which there are two fight with and undermine one another as they are full of women who used to be someone back in the day and they are unable to let go. It's ugly once you peel back the onion. The clubhouse is women only, and I do not understand how the state of Florida has not stepped in to this very bigoted community and put a stop to that. Perhaps it needs to be reported to the state. I do not believe excluding men from a clubhouse yet still making them pay dues if they live there is legal. For women who complain about being prejudiced against in the outside world they sure do their share of it in their little cult like world. You are shunned if you are not part of their cliques....and there are many. I agree with Cindy this is very similar to living in a cult like atmosphere. I would run for my life before purchasing an overpriced trailer in this park and dealing with these mean spirited women. Evidenced by the turnover.

I love living at Carefree. Women living with other women, caring for each other and making community. We watch out for each other and make sure everyone is safe, hence making sure the gate closes before one pulls away.

We have lived here for 10 years and we LOVE IT. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. Our little slice of heaven.
by Jean and Nancy on SeniorAdvice.com 09/04/2018
I don't know who reviewer Cindy came in contact with at Carefree. All types of women live here, some more friendly than others.....just like everywhere else. Can't think of a better place to live. If you are sick, injured, hospitalized or need a truck and a few good women to move a piece of furniture, Carefree women will appear within minutes and organize themselves into a grand helpers brigade. The rest of the time it is up to you to find your interests, join a committee, make new friends.

I have lived here for 12 years, 3 in an Rv and 9 since we put a manufactured house on the Rv lot we had purchased. I have met so many interesting women here and I participate in everything from Pickleball to bridge and mahjong and belong to a writers group and book club. Most of all though, I feel more comfortable and at home than anywhere I have ever lived and so safe I can walk my dog at midnight in my pajamas if I want.
by Lynne Snead on SeniorAdvice.com 09/04/2018
I had to post this because I have lived here for a few years now and anyone who would refer to this as an overpriced trailer park definitely had an unfortunate experience and an axe to grind. No neighborhood is filled with all perfectly friendly people, but that said, there is no place I would rather be than right here. These are manufactured homes, but this is not a community you would compare to a trailer park! As another post mentioned, you need help with something, there are plenty who will come in an instant. It's attractive, clean, and there are a variety of home styles or RV pads to choose from. I came for a winter in my RV and loved it so much I went back to California, sold my home there, and bought a home here. It is a community where we are protective of one another, so if you come in sight seeing, you can expect to be checked out a bit. If you are interested in becoming part of the community that happens pretty quickly if you put out an ounce of effort to get to know folks here and let them know you're not just snooping.

This has been a wonderful living experience with people who care and are always willing to help out. Service providers who come to our community always comment on what a beautiful community we have and how well maintained it is. Our beautiful $million clubhouse hardly is that of a trailer park. So sorry Cindy had a bad impression of our lovely community.

We came here to be snowbirds in 2016 and ended up meeting so many wonderful women and finding so many activities that we both could enjoy. We now live here full time. We love the off season as well as the hustle and bustle of every day life during season. We have made some pretty awesome friends here. The entire community is kept very tidy looking

I have met several really nice women from carefree, but most of the residents of this overpriced trailer park in north ft Myers have been arrogant, entitled cult members that do not communicate with the outside world very well. I toured this when buying in ft Myers, thank god.
