“We are finally home” is the phrase that came to both Debbie and me when we moved to Birds of a Feather Community. We were searching for a place where we could be ourselves, make lasting friendships, feel like family and grow old with dignity and we found it here. The nature is beautiful beyond words, the people are the same. The community in and outside of BOAF is welcoming and we feel a part of the whole. Life at BOAF in a word…PERFECT!

I’ve been coming to the Birds of a Feather property since 2004 – before lots were for sale. I fell in love with the land then and I’ve grown to love it more and more. The community we are building is fun-loving, caring, and dedicated to creating a place where everyone can live in a safe and loving environment where differences are celebrated and talents are shared. We celebrate together, work together, and share good times and bad. It is a long time dream come true and everyday I wake up and am grateful for the blessing of living here and having the opportunity to share my life with loving and caring people.
Our journey into retirement at BOAF has been an incredible experience. Who would have thought we would surround ourselves by some of the most wonderful people we have ever met? To say that we've become a family doesn't quite capture our close relationship. But there are no other words to describe it. While our natural families live in Santa Fe and Albuquerque, we don't play golf with them as often as our BOAF family. We don't celebrate almost every weekend or holidays with them like we do our BOAF family. We don't take nature hikes or eat home-made ice cream or share wine or have snowball fights like we do our BOAF family. When David and I first visited the BOAF website, we read something about a magical place. If there is a term to describe retirement at BOAF, in every sense imaginable it is a "magical place."

When we first saw Birds of a Feather, we thought it was one of the most beautiful places on earth to live. The landscape was breathtaking. Now that we've built our home, we know the true beauty of Birds of a Feather Community is the people who live here. We've not only built our home, but friendships for life.
