Retama Village 55 & Over Community


What are the benefits of living in Retama Village?

There are too many to count, but a few top advantages our residents love are: a healthy and social lifestyle, easy access to fun & entertainment (including a World Birding Center), resort like facilities, low-maintenance lifestyle perfect to keep you on the go and active, and last but not least-our ability to tailor the needs of our beloved 55 and over community members.

Whether you’re looking to retire and return each winter or you’re simply deciding where you want to spend your retirement permanently, we understand that finding a new home community in the Rio Grande Valley area that meets your needs is important-which is why Retama Village was designed with “Active Adult” and “Winter Texan” residents in mind.

Winter Texans

People from all over the country have long been drawn to the warm subtropical climate, friendly culture and relaxed lifestyle of Texas’ southernmost cities as far back as the 1950s. The Rio Grande Valley brings approximately 150,000 “winter Texans” each year to enjoy the mild winter weather, recreation, and community.

Now that the 2016/2017 Winter Texan season is over, we’ve already begun the preparation for our new and returning residents. The site occupancy for this last season was the highest it has been in the last two seasons and current indications are that we will have a higher occupancy this coming season. At Retama Village, we give our Winter Texan residents the peace of mind knowing that the community is well taken care of while they’re away and will be the same nature-filled paradise when they return.

Active Adults

The days of spending retirement in a rocking chair are long over! Today, retirees are active adults who want to explore, stay active and travel whenever their spirit moves them-which is why Retama Village is uniquely designed for active adults that want to have a more carefree lifestyle and exceptional amenities.

Retama Village has several floor plan options for those that want to live the RV lifestyle and enjoy lock-and-leave convenience and privacy. Home options include detached single-family homes, RV port homes, single bedroom/bath casitas with full RV Hookups, and RV super sites with a permanent 12’ x 24’ coach house.

Exceptional Amenities

There is so much to do with the exceptional amenities available within the Bentsen Palm community and throughout each of the distinctive neighborhoods. Designed to embrace its natural surroundings and offer a comfortable environment to enjoy nature and time with family and friends, the endless Bentsen Palm amenities include: community center and clubhouses, 180 acres of parks and open green space, private nature trails, two miles of Rio Grande River frontage, swimming pools and shade palapas, picnic facilities and BBQ grills, sports courts and ball fields, miles of hike and bike trails, and much more. The Rio Grande Valley also offers a natural playground for a variety of outdoor recreation, including boating, hiking, biking, fishing, kayaking and more.

Retama Village is designed specifically for the new generation of active adults who either winter in South Texas or call it home year-round. If you’re looking for your new home in Mission, Tx then look no further!
