Learn about the Santa Marta
retirement lifestyle.

"I have lived at Santa Marta for twelve years and I could not find a place where I could be happier. The residents are fun and the employees are thoughtful and kind."

Mary Duerst, Resident since 2008

“We were coming through here on our way to a football game and stopped and visited Santa Marta. And mostly, the rest is history. We visited several other communities here in the Kansas City area, but there is no comparison. You can’t get Santa Marta out of your mind once you’ve seen the rest of them – they don’t stack up. The best thing about Santa Marta is the people. I consider this to be my family.”

Bill Poehling, Resident since 2009

“When you go out and come back and always say, ‘Oh, I’m glad to be back at the apartment.’ You talk to all your friends here and they say the same thing. They go on a trip and say it’s always nice to come back home.”

Marie Weafer, Resident since 2014

“Marie had to pry me out of the house. I had a garden and flowers and birds and feeders. I was in, you know, wonderland, because it was a tour yard. And it was hard to give up, but as soon as I got in here, I didn’t even think about it.”

Col. Ret. Buck Weafer, Resident since 2014
