I have been living at Tamarack on the Lake since mid January 2014, and I must say I'm very impressed so far. When we went to view the apartment, we felt VIP . One of the staff members pulled the golf cart to the front of the building like valet parking. Dean was also very helpful and understanding of our needs, he definitely sold us! We fell in love with the layout of the phase 2 apartment. Open layout, tons of square footage, a gas burning fireplace, huge deck, fully equipped alarm system, lights that can be dimmed, good water pressure, HIGH ceilings, screened in porches, tons of outlets, storage space, all the parking you would ever need, big walkways, new appliances, and closet space. These apartments were built in 2000, but they look totally brand new. There are so many advantages to this apartment complex that you have to pay for at other complexes. They include a lot of bells and whistles for sure! I enjoyed how laid back the office staff is, I was definitely attracted to the fact that they are dog lovers!! Pet rent is affordable, and there are plenty of dogs. When we first moved in we were nervous about the area, we have lived in Fayetteville for the majority of our lives and did not think that Rosehill Road was an ideal location. But we were surprised that it took almost 3 days to see our first neighbor (who was very welcoming) ! Everyone was asleep by 10:00, there are no noise disturbances, and our alarm system is paid for by the apartment complex. If you don't like military then this place is not for you. Actually, Fayetteville is not for you because it is a military town. In my case, my boyfriend is former military, so we like having military neighbors. There are many high-ranked and older military mean and women here who are very respectful. I feel very safe living inside of a neighborhood that has a community watch. They meet weekly! I'm also right in between the mall and grocery stores. You're literally surrounded by convenience. Some reviews say that maintenance was an issue, but I have been more than happy with maintenance. I understand that maintenance does have the right to enter the building at anytime for a reasonable cause (it is in all contracts) but in the past two weeks, we have requested maintenance for small things and they have been quick to respond. I'm talkin same day to next day service. It's that fast. They always come on the date we set, and we let them in, they have never tried to enter with a master key. Dean is also the maintenance supervisor, and he is very polite and professional, along with his partner. They are never rude, and they don't complain. I also learned that we have 24 hour maintenance if needed. The only complaint I have is that the office staff was not always knowledgable. They seemed to be on different pages when it came to specific details. We figured all of the kinks out by ourselves though, and were thankful for their effort. But to say the least they were very polite, easy-going and helpful. I also am not fond of the amenities. The gym is ok, the pool is small and run down, and there is no business center. I don't want to make this apartment seem like it is better than what it is, but for the money, the quality is there. This is an apartment for the common man/woman, or someone looking for a short-term lease for the best price. There is nothing fancy here, but it has warmth, personality and substance for sure. We just moved in, so I will do another review at the end of our stay, but so far it feels like home! Stay tuned!
We have lived at Tamarack On the Lake for almost 1 1/2 years. The entire staff has always been courteous and prompt with any requests that we have made regarding maintenance. Fayetteville has crime all over but I have never felt unsafe in the complex and have met and enjoyed many neighbors that have been friendly and helpful. Staff works to ensure rules are followed regarding simple things like trash being properly disposed of or cleaning up after pets in a timely matter. The price is very competitive for apartments in this area and we intend to continue living here!
I would first like to start out by saying the staff are extremely rude and instigative. Enough about that. When I first moved to this complex, I had to argue with the neighbors about a handicap space (I am handicap), from that point I have went through the lake of fire and back. I have had two cameras missing out of my apartment, and was told by management, that they were offended when I brought it to their attention. No one has a key to my apartment but them. The next thing I would like to bring up is. I was in my home undressed, when my alarm went off. I threw something on and ran to the door, when I got there, maintenance was at the door trying to shut off the alarm and get his key out the door. I asked him why he was there, he showed me a work order from two weeks prior where the neighbors above me had let their dog urine on the balcony, so he was coming to check if they had cleaned it up good. Mind you this is the same neighbor (military) that got upset with me and told me he had a broke back, when I when I asked him to please stop parking in the handicap space (works everyday in the military). To continue, I told the guy everything was ok and that I was not dressed. He swore that he had knocked, funny thing is, nothing was on, not a TV or anything, and if I heard the very low alarm why wouldn't I hear his knock. Never mind that, why did he now yell maintenance when he did get in. Of course this was just enough drama for management, for them to total disregard my complaint, and tell me that had a right to come into my home any time they got ready. Tamarack On the Lake, is a Tomahawk on the Lake. I would not refer my enemy to this place. The only experience that I can see that the staff has had is maybe in a prison camp, because this is how they treat their paying customers. Also I pay my rent online to avoid them, and their unpleasantries, regardless of how many time I decide I want to add to the account their is a 15 dollar fee each time. Funny thing is I'm told and after reading past reviews at one time it was worst. I can't imagine. This is how they treat their paying customers, that pay their wages. What is this world coming too.
This place is not worth it... at all!!!! They enter your apt without giving you a heads up, and give maybe two seconds to answer the door before they just use the key to walk in. No joking or lying they just come in when they feel like actually fixing something. I had a bug problem, and went to the office and the darker hair girl asked me if I really wanted the exterminator to come out to my apt since the weather was getting cooler. Are you kidding me?!?!?!?!? If they include that service I should get it when asked. And she never sent the exterminator out to the apt! I don't know how many times I've asked for things to get fixed and nothing happens. Yes, this is a military gets town and yes people move all the time. But let's be realistic and smart. If it is a military move those giant moving vans are the ones that do the moving, not the soldier. And you will see movers bring stuff into an apt and soldiers moving out. This place is not worth it!!!! The staff is rude and incompetent. Just spend an extra $100-200 to live an place that will fix things that request, and are not always trying to take your money. Yes... this place tried to charge me money for a mass fee amount of dog poop on the premises. This place is not worth it!!!!
When we first moved in, I did feel comfortable and liked the area. Now, it isn't safe. Left to go out of town one weekend and we almost got robbed. We came back and our screens were ripped from the the windows, as someone had attempted to. Don't trust anyone here, not even my neighbors! I believe someone was paying attention to our daily routinesand tried to go in for a catch. Management is nice, but that's all. Will be moving out real soon. Just don't trust anyone and watch who you talk to. So sad, we keep to ourselves and are not flashy individuals! They would had been dissappointed with nothing valuable in our home and probably had gotten shot if we were there. Not safe at all. By the way, there are roaches, keep finding some coming from nearby tenants.
