“A big decision made painlessly easy, after walking into the model home. Knowing the quality and integrity in which the builder puts into the community he is building, sealed the deal. All the details were covered, sitting with the team and designing my new home. Great selection of styles, colors, flooring and tile. We love our new home. Thank you Kathy and Team!”

– Christine & David F.

“These are my reasons for choosing South Shore Village to live.
I like New England and I am a four-season person. I like the concept of the community and the variety of activities available to participate in as I look forward to an active retirement. During the construction process, the staff was very helpful in answering all of my questions. I was able to watch the construction of my home, and having previously built two, I was greatly impressed with the construction method and quality that goes into each of these homes. You will be pleased as well. Now that I’m living here, I find the neighborhood is very friendly and the staff is still as responsive as before with any questions I have. I’m glad I’m here and I hope that you will join our community!”

– Art B.

“My husband and I are absolutely thrilled with our new home at South Shore Village.

” Gary & I looked for quite a while for a 55+ community that met all of our needs. No other communities came close to offering what South Shore Village offers. In addition to the amenities, the quality of the homes is far superior than any we have seen. The staff are great to work with and very knowledgeable, professional and friendly too. We are so looking forward to making new friends and thoroughly enjoying our summers by the beach. I would highly recommend this community to anyone looking for a beautiful, quality home and an active lifestyle.”

– Deb & Gary J., 02/2019

– Celeste T., 02/2019

“My husband and I were ready to move to a 55+ condo setting closer to our adult children.
We were hesitant about moving to an apartment condo or a town house connected condo.
Visiting South Shore Village and viewing their model homes was a pleasant surprise. We were greeted with curtesy and professionalism. We are now residents of South Shore Village. It’s everything we hoped for.”

– Anita & Miguel L., 02/2019

We loved the area, the homes were beautiful and the pride in the workmanship was very evident. Kathy and the South Shore Village “team” are wonderful to work with. Every morning I wake up and I think to myself “ I love my new home.”

– Cindi and Andy Longval, Nov 2018

“Kathy Lafond is a true professional in every aspect!
Our initial introduction to SSV was a comprehensive overview to an exciting start to build our new home. Kathy’s knowledge of the building, planning and development of the Village as well as each home selection was remarkable. Her kind, patient approach with her warm smile made our selection process enjoyable. Attention to detail with thoughtful recommendations enhanced the final phase of designing our home. The entire team of contractors have been wonderful to work with in settling in to our new home in SSV. We are grateful to all of them who work tirelessly to provide this life style we are enjoying!”

– Marann & Jack M., Jan 2018

“When I had out of state clients asking me if I knew any free standing condos in a community with amenities, I knew exactly where to turn, South Shore Village! The vision of the community, quality of the construction while still being easily accessible to Route 1 and all that South County offers was precisely what my clients were searching for.
Kathy Lafond could not have made the process of my clients’ new construction process any easier or more enjoyable. As a local South County realtor, I will keep recommending South Shore Village to more clients!”

– Kelly Schneider, Bay Realty, Narragansett, Jan 2018

– Carol & Jim K., Sept 2017

“Purchasing a home in South Shore Village in South Kingstown is the best home buying decision we have ever made.  The future plans for the development include all the amenities we have sought for years.  A development like this is not available anywhere else in Rhode Island.  The quality of construction for the price paid made the purchase a smart investment too!”

– Anthony & Erin M., March 2017

“It is a pleasure to tell you about my experience building here at South Shore Village. I have purchased several homes over the years working with builders and selecting all the finishing touches that make a home really special. SSV has by far been my BEST Experience. From the moment I walked in the door of the model and met Kathy and Larry I felt that they were there to make the home buying experience here easy, enjoyable and mostly professional and honest in every way!

My home came out great…..really better than I even hoped for. I love it! The entire process was smooth and Kathy and Larry were timely and incredibly responsive to every request and question I had throughout the entire selection and building phase. If you are thinking about South Shore Village as your next place to call home…. I highly recommend it based on my personal experience and satisfaction with my new home. Hope to see you as a new neighbor! ”

We FINALLY found our Rhode Island home. We said  ‘Yes to the House.’ Working with Kathy from Day 1 was an absolute joy! Kathy was patient and thorough with us in all aspects of the planning stages of our new home. We were extremely confident with Kathy & Larry’s wealth of knowledge & expertise. Larry brings immense passion as a builder! He is proud of his new community. Larry consistently provided genuine personal guidance with suggestions and explaining our new home features. The construction build of our new home is top notch quality and extremely air-tight energy efficient. We also extend our sincere Thanks to all the talented contractors who helped build our new home.You must visit South Shore Village today!

– Sarina & Jim U., Oct 2016

“I would like to say how pleased I am with the new concept that Larry LaBlanc has brought to New England. An over 55 community with everything to stay active and involved in our community. My home is beautiful and I couldn’t be more happy! Kathy Lafond, the sales manager was a pleasure to work with and made the process flow easily.”

– Ellen S., Nov 2016

“We visited Rhode Island over the last 4 years visiting our daughter and grandchildren, so over time we became very familiar with the region.   There is no development like this in the region. Single floor living with open floor plans and large professional-chef quality kitchens are only here. Working with Kathy and Larry was a great experience.  They were extremely attentive and helpful to ensure our decisions and concerns were addressed.   Every time we visit our house we are reminded what a good decision it was to buy a home here.  All our neighbors have been outgoing and friendly – evidence of similar people looking for a great living experience that will only get better as the development matures with the common amenities like the clubhouse and golf course are built.   Its worth a visit and meet with Larry and Kathy and see the many opportunities available.  We are glad we did!”

– Greg and Toni B.  June 2017

“To Kathy, Larry and all the crew that helped us to find and build our lovely South Shore Village condo. You made the experience a most pleasant one and we can’t believe how smoothly everything progressed. We so appreciate all of you  helping us move onto our new life with such excitement and ease. We’ve found a new family of friends!”

– Fondly, Vicki & John L., March 2017

“Thank you so much for going above and beyond to allow me to be “Home for the Holidays”. You really came through for me and gave me such a beautiful home.”
