A Fantastic Place to Live. My wife and I have lived in Adobe Wells for five years and have loved every minute of it. The location is great with easy access to highways 237 and 101, one block away from the light rail station, close to good shopping at Rivermark Plaza and nice walks at Ulistac Natural Area on Lick Mill Road and Baylands Park. The park is fairly well spread out with a nice green belt, is well managed by friendly staff, and is more strict than most parks in screening residential applications, which generally results in nicer neigh and quieter neighbors. We found that the rules concerning maintaining the outside appearance of your home were not overly burdensome, and actually like the fact that the park is fairly vigilant in enforcing rules on exterior maintenance and maintaining general exterior quietness. Great clubhouse with lots of activities, nice residents, and overall great quality of life.
Nicer of the three parks at Lawrence and Tasman. I have lived at Adobe Wells for over 10 years now. The park is well-maintained and the administrators are very nice. The ownership has strict, sometimes suffocating "rules" about every thing from landscaping, to what condition your car has to be in. Some of the nit-picky rules can be annoying. The most annoying thing is how the ass't administrator does his dirty work. He never talks to you outright if there is an infraction. You just find a note in your park mail box. Some of his notes will have a time limit on them, so if you do not check your park mailbox on a regular basis, you may not get your notice until past the due date, which then results in a "second" notice or a FINAL notice. It can be very frustrating. The administrators are good to work with. The assistant administrator is the one that MOST people living in the park have issues with. There is a very nice Olympic size pool, and two jacuzzis, one outdoors and one indoors, as well as men's and women's weight rooms and saunas. There are quite a few groups, a card group, scrap booking, a park activities group, a family activity group and I am sure others I have forgotten. This is a family park. The children are bussed to the various schools in the area. We are in the Santa Clara Unified School District. I would say all in all if you have to live in a mobile home community, Adobe Wells is one of the best, in appearance, and activities. You do take your chances on your neighbors, just like you do anytime you live in a close community. Even though you own a home...it is like living in an apartment. But if you are looking to live in a mobile home community, check out Adobe Wells. (Just as an FYI, Casa de Amigos, across the way, has quite a few registered offenders (Megan's Law )living there. Adobe Wells has one. )
