Holiday Villages in Texas?

Has anybody here been to, stayed at or bought property at one of the Holiday Villages Resort Communities. Stumbled onto their web site a couple of days ago and haven't had to time to do much research. The info on the site is a little sketchy. They list three in Texas, and the one at Medina Lake and/or the one at Lake Livingston are in an areas that the wife and I would like to have a permanent spot as a hedge on possibly moving back "home" and changing domicile and residence for tax reasons.

They need to change the name of Medina Lake to just Medina----there's not much water in the lake---about 4% of capacity. The drought has really taken it's toll on the lakes and rivers around here.

We owned property at Holiday Village/Media for several years. It is a community with mostly mobile homes although there are several site built homes. There are lots that owners have installed sewer, water and electric and use to park rv's on. The Subdivision has deed restrictions but are loosely enforced. There were several properties that did not comply with the deed restrictions. The entrance gate was manned at the time we were there, but I believe that they have discontinued that practice. The subdivision has its own water and sewer, but is owned by an outside company and the rates are very high. We were paying around $125.00 monthly for water and sewer. Every year they try and raise the rates. Last I heard, the subdivision maintenance fees have gone up. We were paying $35.00 monthly but that was several years ago. The subdivision does have a lake (has been dry for several years), a swimming pool, a small cafe, and an RV park which is not the best maintained. The subdivision is eight miles from Bandera which has one grocery store, which is not the best. The subdivision is about 40 miles from a hospital. We still have friends that live there, It was just too far from a hospital and major shopping for us. If you have further questions you can PM me. Hope this helps.

Thanks to you both. Guess that fulfills the old adage that "if it sounds to good to be true, it probably is" as the photo spread loot pretty good. Think we will pass on this idea and look elsewhere. We had spent a couple of weeks in Kerrville at the KOA in late April and really liked the area and close proximity to a VA hospital look good.

Lake Livingston is in east Texas and just a little to the north of Houston and while not at record high levels, it is still a very usable lake. I don't know much about the property that you are asking about.

Medina Lake is a disaster and it will take several years of good rains to get it back to where it should be.
