Oh come on now. Let's just look at the promo they use.
24 hour security. Yep, if you own a dog and a gun. Rimes rides through the park about 10:00 at night after a few drinks, but if it's so secure, why did so many AC units get ripped off and he didn't know who or when?
Pest Control: Yep, the roaches are most of time in control for sure.
Club House: There is one but it's stacked full of furniture that was left behind and you can't go into it.
Pool: 4' deep and about 15', filled with sulpher water.
ALL DOGS ON LEASH AT ALL TIMES: EXCEPT for Bud the Rimes dog, who runs loose and attacks other animals and people, and craps in the yards in the park.
Yard maintenence: Only 1/3 of the yards have grass, and the others are 10" deep in pine straw. The tennents have to rake the pine straw to the curb and when it gets pilled up enough they pick it up. When they trim the bushes they just leave the trimmings in the yard where they fall.
Maintence Staff: The maintence people are a joke. One is a convected sex offender (a relative of the Rimes, I might add) and the other is a trouble maker. If you make him mad he calls HRS on you as revenge. He also likes to dump all his personal issues on everyone.
I would like to also add that they do in fact go into your home while you aren't home. They snoop and they lie.
Lived there, paid my rent, did my own repairs and fell in loved my neighbor but the Rimes are awful people. Thives is what they are.
This poster is, in my humble opinion, slightly unbalanced. I'm sorry for people who carry hatred for others over the years.

This all sounds right on to me. When we left the new owners were actually making the poor management of the park even worse.

I dont know the Rimes that well, but it seems to me like the park got out of hand when they owned it and they were really in over thier heads on how to handle it. The maintenance is a joke. Patrick is creepy and never repaired anything in our home, he just rigged it up. We had a bad sewage back-up that went all in the carpet of our rental and it was never taken care of. We had a fire due to a faulty stove the first week we lived there and the extinguisher was empty and the stove was never replaced. I felt sorry for them, like maybe they could not afford the repairs. I feel bad for us now for having lived like that. Our house was supposed to be one of the nicer units and what a joke, it had no screens, a broken AC, weak floors, no weather stripping around the doors (so every bug and fly that could come in did) - The only nice thing I can say about the Rimes is they worked with us on late rent payments when we had an emergency and they seemed pleasant when talking to them. I have nothing nice to say about the new management or the half ass maintenance staff. The place definately needs a lot of improvement. I can recommend it to people who have no other option and people who like to live the ghetto life other than that keep on driving.

This was back in Dec. 2012 my toilet was cloged up so the only maintence guy they had came out to look at it. He decided just to uncap the drain line thats on the side of the trailer and have the crap just over flow there. What a idiot he left it like that for a few days before i told the park manager i need my tank pumped out that the maintence guy didnt fix the promblem he just made it worse.she told me he must of been drinking that day !!!! This place just went down hill fast

I've lived here about 3 yrs. I keep my home clean and neat. I don't allow insects of any ilk to survive inside. I'm a killer. It's a rare occassion when I find a roach. Roaches do not like clean houses.

New owners took over as of July 2012:
This Mobile Home Park is under new ownership and improving well.
It takes some time to clean up and clear out problems, but this is a very nice and improving community.

In a past life I have owned several business.
I live in Santa Fe Park. I've met the manager and feel he is a respectable man. I see the changes being made and understand many are afraid of change. Positive change takes time! If I were the boss of your part time working cousin calling me a lier she would be looking for part time toilet scrubbing work somewhere else. Not in this park though!
I see the park improving. And I'm not one to judge anothers efforts in putting a new face on an old business. It's done all the time when a business is bought with a new owner. I take pride in any community I live in and always do what little I can to help it be a happy community.

You say you take pride in your community and you help out i would like to know what you do to help out. You know why they put a new face on a business? you should already know this since your a so called business owner lol if you make the out side pretty you cover all the promblems inside the park and just hope people dont notice the truth about the inside of the park and about time they move in and a few months pass-by they realize all the drug action and theft goes on its to late for them to move because they got there money tied up in rent..

I understand what your saying 100% i lived here for under a year when we first moved in we got the full tour of lies. we were told its safe here no theft, no drugs most of all nice and quite. aftar we moved in about 2 months our eyes were open to the truth. drugs all around the park ...theft here and there... people fighting and the list goes on.. with my husbands job we move every 2 years and this happens to be the top 3 worst places ive ever had to live. we are making plans on moving this year... now dont get me wrong we have a nice trailer and nice neighbors but on the other streets its just a hell hole . i dont feel this is a safe place for my family

My husband and I are not happy with this trailer park.Im sorry Santa Fe Park !! My family looked at the park in the day time and it looked nice so we did a 1 year lease and moved in. Then the TRUTH about the part starts to surface. People drinking in the roads, ive seen drug deals going on ,little kids running around with no shirts and shoes.I was going to inform the manager whats going on until my husband stop me because he said one of them works for the park and it will cause problems.How do people live like this? We are not staying our full year we are going to move as soon as we can.This place is a ZOO .. can someone please tell me if they fix anything around here and why does it take to maintenance men to come in my home to fix something .. Thats spooky my husband said no more we not getting anything else worked on because we arent staying long

Thank you for taming down your libelous rants. Why are people so vicious today? I am age 75. I have accomplished much in my life and I certainly will not place my resume' here for public inspection although it is impressive.
It's very obvious you do not know me. I wish you did. May I suggest to you and others not to make derogatory accusations unless you have personal knowledge and experience of what you are complaining about? I exempt politicians and lawyers from this since many of them are worthy of criticism. <grin>
I DID NOT delete your post! That's impossible. If you don't believe give it a try.
This is the last post I shall offer on any topic concerning Santa Fe Park. I hope you and all who are not happy where they live can discover their personal paradise.
Respectfully, Bob C

Palatka, I would appreciate you if you would teach your dog not to bark. I believe I finally met and spoke with you. Thanx. If you don't have a barking dog, please forgive me for above request. My bad.
