    Opinions on the best housing in SD....

    Advertisements
    We are moving to SD in about 2 weeks, and are trying to decide which military housing to move into. DH is going to be at North Island, so we were looking at Silver Strand II. Any opinions and information on this housing would be greatly appreciated! (I have looked at the website description, so would love to hear from people who have first hand experience with the community) NTC and Gateway look great, but I am concerned about his commute----he was told that it can take a REALLY long time to get over the bridge.
    Thanks!

    sorry I don't know much about that one. But I can tell you that coronodo is a nice place however it is kinda isolated my Boyfriend works on North Islands amphibious base. I have heard from some of the wives who lived out there it can be a drag as there the grocery store is small and you have go across the bridge for allot of stuff. I have never lived in military housing and have only visited people who live in the one off of the 15 freeway near the Admiral Baker Golf Course. The houses are nice however parking is a major issue and it seems like it is party central and they say it's like that every weekend. It was a bit to much for me and I think I would get annoyed.

    Well hope this helps some, and welcome to SoCal as a native I just ask that you treat it with respect
    bye for now

    Get ready to wait... if you want NTC, Serra Mesa or Gateway. They're some of the most popular and they've always got a list. We wanted NTC when we first got here (in April) and ended up choosing Lofgren Terrace (which I really like, because of the location! We love Eastlake..) since it was available right then. My DH is stationed at 32nd. so it's not a bad commute for him at all. From what I've heard, the commute from NTC and the others to North Island isn't bad...

    Dustie (froglove) lived in Strand housing.. I'm sure she could give you the 411 on it.

    Well, I'm what I am and I'm what I'm not
    and I'm sure happy with what Iíve got
    I live to love and laugh alot
    and thatís all I need

    Do you mean Murphy Canyon? It's off 15 and not all that far from Admiral Baker. It's the biggest housing area down here.. Parking is very crowded a lot of the time, but the houses that I've seen are very nice.. more often than not, there's a big wait for it too though, since they allow pets and have yards.

    The strand is nice. You'll be very close to the ocean. We were on the list many years ago when we only needed a two bedroom. We decided to live out in town and keep a portion of our bah instead. We moved into NTC when we our grew our apartment.

    The commute over the bridge only takes a long time if there is an accident or a suicide attempt, neither happen that often.

    Thanks for the responses---it is quite exciting moving to SD---graduated from UNLV and got the chance to visit SD a few times, never thought I would live there
    As far as housing goes, my husband is set on living in SS II because of the short commute---I would love to hear some feedback about this community.
