Oakmont of Santa Clarita offers a wide range of luxurious five-star amenities for its senior residents, including a salon & day spa, movie theater, restaurant-style fine dining and more.
Opened earlier this year, the luxury senior living community in Santa Clarita is comprised of 80 spacious, pet-friendly apartments, with both independent and assisted living options available.
“Sometimes when people think about downsizing into a retirement community, they think, ‘Oh my gosh– it’s going to be so much smaller, or just a room,’” said Mark Dembkowski of Oakmont of Santa Clarita. “Our two-bedroom, two-baths are 1,300 square feet– they have the beautiful high ceilings, the arched doorways… These are luxurious apartments.”
Residents can enjoy an on-site movie theater that shows both current films and favorite classics two times a day, with traditional movie theater snacks like popcorn and candy available.

“If you like the matinee movies, then you can enjoy a movie in the afternoon. If you’re more of an evening movie person, then we have a movie in the evening,” Dembkowski said. “It’s just these lush, beautiful, comfy chairs, … the beautiful surround sound and just that true movie theater experience.”
For added luxury, the community has a salon & day spa where residents can get their hair done and enjoy a manicure and pedicure or massage.
Oakmont’s fitness center has a variety of state-of-the-art, senior-friendly exercise equipment, as well as knowledgeable instructors available to teach residents how to use equipment.
The animal lovers of the community can appreciate the on-site pet park for their dogs to run and play, and residents who choose not have pets of their own can enjoy watching their neighbors’ dogs as well.
Restaurant-style, anytime dining is also available to all residents in addition to a bistro for snacks.
“Now that the weather has been just so beautiful, we have the French accordion doors open all the way and you can just get that indoor/outdoor feeling,” Dembkowski said. “Even if you’re inside dining, you still get that beautiful feeling, and then our outdoor dining patio has fountains with that amazing view of Magic Mountain.”
Though Oakmont’s staff can provide assisted living care options, independent seniors who don’t want the burden of maintaining their home and are ready to enjoy the “cruiseship experience” of the luxury senior living community in Santa Clarita are welcome at Oakmont as well.
“It’s that peace of mind for the family knowing that their loved one is in this beautiful place,” Dembkowski said, “but they don’t have to worry about the upkeep of the home or that they’re not getting those three delicious meals a day.”
