Trust me, you don't want to live here. Even if you're already about to die, there are far more peaceful ways to go. - More cockroaches than you can imagine. - Water service occasionally shuts off without notice. This means on some days you'll wake up to bugs all around (including in your bed), yet you will be unable to bathe. Who can live like this? Wait, there's more. - Even when water is working, hot water is routinely unavailable. - Management enters units without obtaining permission. Probably inspecting your possessions. - If you pay cash (i.e. you're not subsidized) your bills will mysteriously be tripled. - Thieves circle the complex daily, looking for items to steal. - Police drive through but not for your protection - they are profiteers looking to ticket residents.
HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE! WHAT A NIGHTMARE! I honestly never encounter such discontent paying my own money in an apt complex. Mind you I went to to college for 6 years and live in places I think was not great, but this place is as bad as it comes.
1st: they are NATURE FRIEND = they do not cut their trees down to keep the place neat, so bugs everywhere, I saw BUGS there that you think will only excist in the African jungle. 2nd: they welcomed me there with NO AC in the apt, Maintenance said they just realized that, it will be fix immediatly (believe me - 3 days later, i still have no AC) yeeep, in florida & nothing was taking off my rent. . Mind you I have a full time job, come home at 8pm, & of course they are already close
3rd: shower was not working, so no hot water. for the ENTIRE YEAR - I took more shower in the gym than that place because obviously they could not fix it, nor they will buy a new water heater. 4rth: as I went there with the check list, doing the walk through with maintenace, ecited and ready to move in---i saw roaches running on the counter, and the oven. (maintenance choose to clear that with his hand right in front of me. My 10 speed bike got stolen right in front of my door, and YES it was locked. The assitant manager was only able to inform me there is nothing she can do. They have the most discusting noticed ever, I would come home find notice on my door intended to OTHER TENANTS. when i call them, they will be 'we are sorry' they will leave the notes stated 'MUST BE DONE TODAY BY 5PM' According to Tennants statutes of Florida, you have to provide at leat 24 hrs, but at this place they give people couple hours, so if you have a job....too bad so sad because you'll get charge. I was out of the country they call me, ask me to call them ASAP. I think my apt caught fire or something...but then when i called...they gave me a story about somebody return my key to them - & I was like: WRONG PERSON, MY KEY IS IN MY KEY CHAIN, and that is not AN EMERGENCY WORTH CALLING ME DURING MY FAMILY DINNER ALL THE WAY IN CANADA. don't move there, just don't do it. after all I never fail to pay them not even once, never paid late, but I'm forever happy I'm out of this place.
Besides the 2 people who died, one murdered and one drown in the lake behind the apartments, I left this place 4 years ago. I was never informed by phone call or mail I owed any money for post move-out charges. I went to buy a house which is being delayed now because Countrywood is claiming $960 is owed to them. One charge $630 is for a 2bedroom apartment I lived in BEFORE the most recent 1 bedroom I rented for one year afterwards. How did I owe $630 from my previous apartment and still manage to stay for a year at my new apartment without being told, notified, or just evicted? I called and spoke to a man in the office who says he cant help they have no records of my account and to call collections.. I call collections they have no further information or break down of the bill other than " you owe us $960. Owing money is one thing, having NO idea why you owe the money or an explanation is another. Great job guys!
Moved in my apartment a few days ago and I must say I love it! Very quiet, clean, and safe so far....Maintence staff is GREAT they fixed a few minor issues within minutes of my request! If your looking for a nice area of Tampa, reasonably priced, and good size apartment move here....and about the roaches I have YET to see ONE ROACH, SPIDER, ANT, ETC I'm guessing their pest control does a good job! Will update my review in a few months
Ive been working with Countrywood Apartments for some time now and find the staff very friendly and the grounds and apartments clean and well kept. If your looking for a home or an apartment for rent, Countrywood is the spot.
