As the Mission San Luis Rey Celebrates 225 Years, a New Community Establishes the Future of Senior Living
OCEANSIDE, CA—Tucson-based Watermark Retirement Communities and Oppidan Investment Company (a national property development firm headquartered in Excelsior, MN), announced today that The Hacienda Mission San Luis Rey, a new community offering independent living, assisted living and memory care, is set to open in Fall 2023 in Oceanside, CA—which coincides with the 225th anniversary of the Mission San Luis Rey.
The Hacienda is unique among the Watermark communities in that it is nestled on the campus of the historic Mission San Luis Rey itself, allowing residents to soak in the serenity, history and natural beauty of the area.
“Our goal with The Hacienda Mission San Luis Rey is to continue a 225 year tradition of warmth and hospitality, while creating the future of senior living by providing seniors with a lifestyle of choice,” said David Freshwater, chairman of Watermark Retirement Communities. “We will be providing a service and [an] amenity-rich community where members can enjoy a vibrant lifestyle with ready access to best-in-class care. We are committed to reimagining senior living.”
Architecturally inspired by the Mission in the Spanish Revival style, The Hacienda offers innovative and inspiring wellness, fusing landmark integrative therapies and leading edge applied research with the lifestyle of Southern California.
“The Hacienda is rooted in traditions of hospitality and curated to cater to those who want to maintain their current lifestyles,” said Mariano Perez, executive director of The Hacienda. “It brings together intentional design and innovative programming based on Watermark’s 30 years of expertise in delivering the finest senior care. We’re excited to share this new community and the unique programs we’re developing, which will capture the interest of our local discerning seniors and their families for many years to come.”
