3 Beautiful Mobile Home Communities That Have It All

It’s amazing to see how far mobile home communities have come through the years. Yes, there is still a stigma associated with mobile home living, but as these 3 beautiful mobile home parks prove, that stigma is definitely beginning to fade as more of these all-inclusive resort-like communities pop up.

Vineyard Valley

Our first community, Vineyard Valley is located in the Napa Valley area of California. Boasting over 44 acres of landscaped park to walk through, a lagoon, putting green and playing courts for bocce ball, this senior community offers everything a senior needs to enjoy an active lifestyle.

Related: A few months ago, we shared how mobile home communities were changing in California with parks like the Palm Canyon Mobile Club.

Montauk Shores

Next up, we have Montauk Shores located in New York. It was actually the first mobile home park in the state of New York, established back in 1976. There is a combined total of 199 sites in the park, with 152 owned and 47 leased spaces.

The biggest draw to living in Montauk Shores would be the 1000′ of oceanfront which allows easy access to surf fishing, swimming or just relaxing on the beach. The amenities also include a professional bar, library, clubhouse, large area for social gatherings that include a full commercial kitchen, as well as many activities geared toward children.

An all-age community, there is a combination of weekend getaway residences and full-time residents. It is considered to be the area’s best kept secret and we can definitely see why.

De Anza Santa Cruz

Our 3rd community, De Anza Santa Cruz, and is also located in California. Located on the bluffs of Monterey Bay, this 55+ community is a mix of waterfront and interior lots offers plenty to keep seniors entertained. A fitness center, library, clubhouse, and hot tubs are just a few of the amenities residents can enjoy.

These are just a few examples of how mobile home communities are changing to fit the needs of seniors, families, and working adults. Unfortunately, the lot rent for these communities wasn’t readily available. However, residents have accessibility to many amenities that haven’t been available in the past as well as the added security of gated communities.

Keep in mind, there is a lot to consider when thinking about moving into a community, whether it be a senior living one or an all-age one. But one thing is for sure, mobile home communities are evolving!

    Beautiful communities! It seems there are many…so you may have to write another article about them. Silver Sands Mobile Home Park is another beauty located in the seaside town of Carpenteria located just a few miles south of Santa Barbara. My hubby and I live in Sonoma County in Rancho Grande – a 55+ park…the only thing we’re missing is a bocce ball court. The weather is a bit cooler than Napa as we’re the next county going west toward the ocean. We are blessed to have landed in this area after having a stick home in San Rafael (Marin County) for 20 years – no more paying property taxes or big lot maintenance. Mobile Home living is the only way to go!

      I’ve seen tons of homes in the Rancho Grande park. There are so many more options available for community living than there used to be! You are right Mobile Home Living is the only way to go!

    Montevalle MHP in Scotts Valley CA is another one and was featured in the book: “Practical Guide To Mobile Homes” Published 1980. You should see it today !

    Those prices are insane of course but I would bet less than what stick built goes for. No sure if there are lease costs on top of it or a Co-Op arrangement.
