VERY IMPORTANT EDIT: Our washing machine has been broken for the past one and a half weeks. The thing is, you can call in the staff and get whatever is broken fixed. We've called three times. It's almost been 2 weeks. There's something wrong with these people and they need to stop. I've been here for 5 years. It's a good looking place, but the people here are terrible. There are crackheads living in every other apartment, and once upon a few months ago a raging drunk woman came to our door and started ranting at us about me (the 16 year old) being out after curfew. (The time was 9:00 PM.) The police had to be called, and MANY neighbors were alerted. I also don't like the looks I get when I go out running. The staff treat the all of the old women living here terribly. I want to leave.
The good news is, the maintenance staff is very friendly & helpful, especially considering they have to pay for repairs out of their own pockets. The apartments are also fairly cheap, for the Denver area. The location is great too, geographically at least. You can hop on 36 or 25 in a few minutes. Also parking for guests is basically non-existent, but i had my one assigned spot which was great for me. The bad news is, you get what you pay for. Very dated apartments. Appliances older than I am (& i am not young). The office staff can tend to speak down to you & act like they are better, like they are some big-time real estate moguls or something. They will try to increase your rent every time you renew, despite people moving out in droves, empty apartments, Federal Heights being named the #2 most dangerous city in Colorado, etc. There were times i saw vandalism, cars that had been broken in to, & police activity in the complex, but luckily it never affected me personally. I'd heard a couple people even got their cars stolen. The dog area could also get pretty loud early in the mornings & late at night, but that wasn't really a problem, as they make no effort to hide their dog friendliness, which is great if you have dogs. I could tell the previous occupant of my unit definitely did. In conclusion, the price was right for what i moved in to, but the rent increases, safety concerns always in the back of my mind, & general rudeness of the staff (maintenance not included) made it not so great of a deal over time. i am glad to have moved out when i did.
Sarah, Connie, Guy have been so wonderful. They have taken the time to make this move to my new Chapter such a GREAT experience moving into Hunters Cove has been the best thing for me I'm so happy with my new apartment and everything the staff has done to make it so comfortable.
I would say this place is closer to fair than it is "poor". The office staff are very friendly and sincere, I have never had a negative experience with them. Their maintenace usually responds 24-48 hours and no issues with them either. The positives=wood burning fire places, W/D or at least connections, recently renovated gym (although only 3 machines fit in it), indoor hot tub, community sponsored events (free). The negatives= Most (not all) of the apartments are very outdated, windows/doors leak cold air, No central AC (old school hotel-like AC unit), thin walls (you can hear neighbors, the appliances, and even the TV sometimes), awful parking set up, dimly lit at night, expensive water bills (residents share). I am neutral on a recommendation- if you have the money, go with a nicer place. If you dont, this isnt a horrible place.
i have lived here for over a year and i love it! it has always been well maintained, and the landscaping kept up. never had a problem with a neighbor in fact everyone seems to be pretty friendly. there are always parties for the residents held by the staff with food and drinks. although it is an older community my apartment itself has never given me trouble in fact it is in very good condition from move-in to now. i would highly recommended this place to my friends and family.
