The environment is peaceful, invigorating, social, calming or whatever you want to make it or it can be all of those things.  It is as natural as the private owners can keep it.  Flocks of quail roam undisturbed.  One also enjoys seeing the rabbits, hummingbirds during their migrations, a variety of birds, hawks, owls, and doves and an occasional lizard.

The landscape is filled with plantings native to the area.  Beautiful and colorful flowers abound at every season.

Spa Atmosphere

The spa atmosphere pervades as people are drawn to the natural hot to cool pools, of which there are 4, wearing their spa robes, if they wish.  The locker rooms contain a sauna, private dressing rooms and mineral showers.

Sections of the largest pool are reserved at certain times for lap swims, a lively game of water volleyball or free water aerobics classes.  If you prefer choose one of the Jacuzzi spas of varying temperatures.  Usually you can have one all to yourself.  Aches and pains?  Hot mineral waters are known to give relief and rejuvenate you.  Caliente Springs Resort spa has multiple pools at varying temperatures.  After your soak, choose a lounge chair facing the rays of the warm desert sun and relax.   

Plenty of social and recreational activities to keep one busy

During the season, stop off at The Atrium Lounge for a cup of coffee and grab a video to watch later.  Have a workout at the Fitness Center then cool down with a mineral shower.  Check the social calendar.  There's usually something going on to enjoy from crafts and cooking classes, hiking groups to fitness and free yoga classes.  The season from September to April the activity calendar is full.  Activities are free or at very little cost.

The Homes

"Tiny homes" park model kitchen"Tiny homes" aka park model home kitchen--Many styles of homes throughout the community.

The Homes - There is nothing typical about the homes at Caliente Springs. Walk around the well-cared for streets and you will never see any two exactly alike.

Each home has its own personality due to model, brand, year built, upgrades, landscaping and views.  Some are professionally landscaped while others reflect the owners personality.  They range from 400 Square Feet to approximately 900SF.  The prices go from less than $45,000 up to $100,000.  They are on leased land so they are affordable without the high cost of land, which might be more than people in retirement might want to pay. 

Park models are now called "tiny homes" due to the recent popularity of this term and their desirability that people wanting a small-home lifestyle are becoming aware of.  Great for one or two people.  No high staircases, park your car steps from your door, easy to clean and maintain, and fewer things to create clutter.

So much for so little.

Most people pay all cash for a new or resale park model or manufactured home then their only obligation is the lot lease fee which varies mostly depending on view plus their separate utilities, internet, phone, etc. (No garbage/sewer fees.)  (Loans may be available on new homes.)

There is a laundry room with laundry card for those who don't have a laundry hookup or don't wish to install one.

Some amenities have small fees but many are free or by small contribution.
