Manufactured Smart Homes-Americana Cove

By | March 17th, 2018|Activities-Events, Residents, Uncategorized|Comments Off on Manufactured Smart Homes-Americana Cove

I am fascinated by all the new technology being developed today.  Did you realize home owners can have almost every kind of electronics gadget in a manufactured home compared to a “regular” home?  “Mobile home” owners might have home automation devices like appliances, lighting, heating, air conditioning, huge TVs, computers, entertainment audio & video systems, security, and camera systems just like you had/have “up-north”.  All of these can be controlled remotely by a time schedule, from any room in the home, as well as remotely from any location in the world by phone or internet.  Come take a look at our gorgeous and up-to-date lifestyle, you will be surprised at the technology and safety features you might choose to add to a manufactured home.  (see links below).  

An article in CAI-CommonGround Magazine indicates. “80 percent of retirees are interested in smart thermostats or apps that control appliances; 76 percent would consider sensors and alerts or medication reminder apps to monitor their health; 67 percent are interested in health optimization technology, like air purification or a device to improve sleep; and 58 percent would consider home maintenance technology, like cleaning robots or heated driveways.” This survey was conducted by Merrill Lynch in partnership with Age Wave.  

What is on your wish list for new home automation devices (←find video on CNET)?  IRobot, Alexia or Google Home, thermostat?

Spring Cleaning and New Home Dreaming

By | February 25th, 2017|Activities-Events, Residents, Sales|Comments Off on Spring Cleaning and New Home Dreaming

Ah, spring! That time of year when our thoughts turn to renewal, leprechauns, Easter eggs, new beginnings, and baseball.

For our snowbird residents at Americana Cove, spring can be bittersweet as it means cleaning up, packing up, saying goodbye to good friends, and sometimes selling or buying a new place before heading back north.

Have you been contemplating making a purchase? Do you have your new home checklist ready? What are your “must haves” in a winter home or permanent retirement place?

At Americana Cove, we are an active adult community with 23 organized clubs and activities. There is some type of lunch, dinner, dance, or cook-out nearly every week during high season featuring live entertainment by local musicians. These events have a modest cost, and some are completely free of charge.

Not into all that clubby stuff? Perhaps you’d rather relax at our new state-of-the-art swimming pool and tiki hut while sipping an adult beverage and enjoying the sights of manatees and the occasional dolphin swimming through our lake and canals.

Whether you are into partying and mixing in, or keeping it low key and cocooning, Americana Cove has what you want.

What about what you need? In addition to the social activities and nice facilities, Americana Cove is resident-owned and in good financial shape. You can purchase here with the confidence of knowing your investment is a smart one.

If you’re ready to grab your own little piece of paradise, talk to our sales staff. We have several available sites awaiting your new custom manufactured home, homes for resale, and homes for rent. What are you waiting for?!

Community of the Year!

By | January 6th, 2017|MAROA, Residents|Comments Off on Community of the Year!

Welcome Home!

What a way to start the new year! I recently had the pleasure of attending a Community Association Institute (CAI) breakfast with our board members to accept a “Community of the Year” award for our region. We were one of only three communities recognized, so when one considers the number of co-op and condo communities with which we compete, this is an attractive feather in the Americana Cove cap! Our region covers the geographic area of Hillsborough, Pinellas, and Pasco counties, with a total population of nearly 2.5 million people.

CAI Member and Americana Cove Staff & Board   Manager Jane Jarlenski, & Board of Directors: Nan Olney, Tom Wallace, Beverly Baker, Dave Casey and Chuck MacDonald.

We were recognized for efficient management of our major infrastructure upgrades, quality of amenities, financial stability, and vendor/residential testimonials. If you are already a resident here, you know what a gem we have in this community. If you are considering making a move to Florida, whether permanent or seasonal snowbird, this is just one more reason to put Americana Cove at the very top of your new home shopping list.
