    I haven't seen a thread about this, yet, and I'm not sure whether this is the forum for it.

    We got a flyer in the mail a couple of days ago...now I just need to find a couple of million dollars to buy the "castle I always wanted"!! :rolleyes:

    Can you scan and post it? Might be fun reading. (Note that it has to be scanned as a photo.)

    I can't scan, but here is the link the flyer has. I'm not sure what made us a part of the mailing...definitely not in my price range, unfortunately :sad2:

    I was playing around last week and somehow clicked through to Golden Oaks, I shared my info with DH who just kind laughed at me....my sister said it sounds like a cemetery name...my best friends wanted to split the costs and run away from home ( they all have small kids)....and my brother in law was showing me how I might be able to afford it for retirement if I bought now, sublet it weekly ( he always has a scheme, lol)...I just figured really I wouldn't be happy there considering the neighborhood is infested with mice, ducks and other questionable characters.

    Unfortunately its set up so that you cant sublet. They have plans in place to keep it exclusive to purchasers. I like that as it keeps "rif-raf" out. Not to say it will let them in but i think it shouldbe for who can afford with all that you get with it.

    Got a plan. The wife and I each have refillable mugs and sun glasses. We are going to stand by the main gate toll plaza and help collect parking fees.

    One might expect that the deed restrictions would be significant. Perhaps to the point that it might not feel like you were really the owner? Where are the prices found?

    The flyer that I got in the mail said "starting at 1.5 million". Not sure if it says anything on the website.

    My DH and I tried to go in just to look once and we couldn't even get past security (understandable). But I would love to just take a peek into one of those houses. Living there, not so much. It's probably a lot of work to keep up with and I'm sure the HOA fees would be outrageous! But the homes are lovely.

    If you can afford to buy in you can afford HOA. But everything is included along with free shuttles to park gates, free entrance plus 3 per household resident. Maintenance willbe taken care of by disney. Not bad
