Hear about Santa Marta’s lifestyle from the people who know it best – our residents!
“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 just to compare with Santa Marta, but uh, 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. It’s an apartment, but it’s our home.”
-Marie Weafer, Resident since 2014
“The people who are coming here recently obviously have waited too long. There are quite a few of them, but they could have come in much sooner. And why they didn’t, I have no idea. 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. Didn’t even think about it.”
