I would highly recommend purchasing a Divosta home. I purchased my villa in Hammock Preserve and closed in April 2020. The process was easy and the team of representatives are extremely professional and excellent to work with. I love my home and I feel like I made a very good decision! ... More

We were fortunate to have a great site supervisor, Joe, who kept a watchful eye over every little detail of the build as we were in Michigan during the whole process. When we arrived for the walk thru we were blown away by the details that had all been taken care of. I feel the only negative of the whole experience was the short window we had to decide on all the details of our home and the few choices we were given. To plan your whole home in two hours was not an experience I felt that warranted the amount of money we were spending. ... More

This is our 3rd foray into new home contruction. I would say it was our best. From sales to construction manager all were responsive and helpful. Would not have changed anything to date with the process. I would however say that for my cascadia I would have preferred another option to add more cabinets or a cabinnetted pantry rather than just the shelves with the door. Given gourmet kitchens are what you market, that is an option I would have upgraded to. ... More

DiVosta needs to pay attention to interior cosmetic detail correction prior to buyer's walk through inspection like cracked cabinets, crookedly installed electrical/ wall plate receptacles, wrong brand of kitchen appliance installed (Amana dishwasher vs the Kitchen Aid as stated in the contract list). Outside lamppost needs to be tested if it's operational. These should have been inspected and corrected prior to buyer's walk through. ... More

The construction of the home was completed as scheduled. There were, and still are some issues to be addressed. All items ordered were completed with the exception of epoxy coating on the garage floor. That oversite was rectified in time for our move in. The remaining open items are to be addressed by the warranty crew. ... More

IslandWalk is a great place to live The home designs are varied. The inside design is poor as cabinets are very small, closets are small, causes limited storage that you have to spend additional money on once you move in. No pocket doors make for poor design as one door opens to block a door behind it? Very odd and poorly designed. In a positive note construction was right on time! The supervisor in charge of my home building was Carson, I must say he was easy to work with, very responsive to phone calls from me and really explained everything before, during and even after I moved in I would call him, he always responded quickly and always concerned, he deserves a raise!! ...

Be careful with upgrades, especially built-in kitchens. You're upgrading for appearance and think you're getting top quality but you're really not given a choice of appliances. Kitchenaid now has a recall on their cooktops and only one option exists that will fit. For us it's not an acceptable option and although money is offered to compensate there isn't anything that fits short of reconstructing the countertop and space below. Not enough time or money to cover that. We love IslandWalk and overall love our new home but the standard appliance packages may be the way to go. You'll have better choices to work with if something goes wrong. The management team is great. ... More

Make sure to go through every detail at the design phase. There are a few things I and they missed that caused some minor issues. I feel they rushed to closing and then leave many issues afterwords to settle. They are very responsive but I think most of these should have been completed prior to closing. ... More

There are a few issues that Divosta needs to address. Such as many cupboard door handles banging against wall or doors. Eventually it will start denting very expensive house materials. On lanai and garage conduit running along wall covered with paint. Window not centered in den. After spending nearly a half of a million dollars needs to be more classy and professional. ... More

The home construction and quality was very good but landscape quality was anything but acceptable. Contacted Customer Service and they pushed of on the contract installation company. I contacted the installation company and after 4 weeks no corrective action. Following initial installation, irrigation system was not enabled and shrubs and lawn had no water for 2-3 weeks during daily 90 degree dry conditions. I was told the irrigation control unit was not activated following sod and shrub install. Sad. ... More

We love our Divosta home. Our lot is great. The construction aspect was great and our Project Manager was excellent. However, some of the items used to finish the inside we are not happy with. The tile work is awesome. Basic cabinets OK. Basic granite awful. Granite pitted and not smooth and when we questioned granite manufacturer they informed us that the granite came that way. Had I known that, I would have upgraded. The design center showed us a sample and the quality is not the same. Not a big lover of flat paint. Only other issue is mirrors. Both my mirrors have issues with the silver backing. Mirrors in horrible shape. Not sure what they're going to do about that. Pulte builds a solid home but they skimp on the finishing touches. ...
