Come on guys we live here and it is an apartment community. We have been here going on a 4th year and although we have had a couple of challenges. It has been good!! My daughter and have HIGH standards and they have NOT been lowered!!! I am not a friend and do not any of them in the office personally. Not all are people oriented but then neither are some of us!!! Parking is scarce even in a home/house. Be fair a 2 - is not being fair
Been living at this apartment complex for almost 3 years with little issues . It's really close to some basic shopping with HEB , Walmart, GameStop, Ross , hobby lobby and Target within 5 miles. A new bar just opened up and is walking distance away, that's nice. And a movie theater and several restaurants are about 10 minutes away. I work downtown and it takes me about 30 minutes to drive which ain't bad. The other residents typically keep to themselves and are not loud or annoying. The walls are thick enough to not be disturbed by other residents , you may hear some light noise but it's fine. The gates have been broken or not working correctly for about 50% of the three years I have lived their. The mail doesn't have a out box and they refuse to fix the one they have. Recently they added some gates to keep the mail area more secure. I found the staff to be very welcoming and nice and help me with issues in a timely fashion .Sadly the hours of operation have changed and are very odd they close at 545? I had some issues with insects entering the apartment but the apartment has been good with calling the crew to spray on a regular basis. So it might be a random time when bugs may enter but I call the front desk to spray and they do and they are gone for a little while. I give them a pass since i'm on the 1st floor. My rent is under 900 for one room on first floor with a pet, which includes water / sewer bill and I can pay online which is convenient. Speaking of Internet you have the options of AT&T U verse and Time Warner NO GOOGLE FIBER or anything else. Regular HDTV over the air signal is weak at these apartments (1st floor) . The parking is a good amount for all the residents but I think the covered parking is under used and too many people don't know how to park in correct spots (giant trucks are not compact!! ) . I think the complex doesn't have enough trash / recycling bins because the few they have are always full. The grounds are kept very pretty and overall I do feel safe in these apartments. My truck was broken into once but nothing was stolen and overall I don't fear crime in the area. I have heard some of the outer apartments have been broken into (closer to the gate ) but I have never had that issue. The complex even told me of potential crime so I was warned. If you like public transportation these apartments are close to some bus stops and a large transfer station (tech ridge) . The actual apartment is simple and nice and any comes with basics of microwave and refrigerator. The balcony area is sort of pointless on the first floor and does not provide enough light for plants but is a nice place to chill sometimes if the weather is nice with some chairs. This apartment is animal friendly and has a pool and basic work out room so it's good overall. I rarely work out or use the pool but I never had any issues with either. Also wanted to add this area is growing allot so many jobs are near by and will be soon hiring. The population in apartments seems very diverse. I wish another trash / recycle bin was available because they often become full. I am probably the most detailed and honest review on google, so my wife and I haven't had major problems with this apt complex and I like it. Is it perfect - NO , but what is ? I recommend it
We live lived here since 2013, thankfully we only have two months left before we are free of this nightmare! Everything you read about bugs and piles off large dog defecation is TRUE! We had cockroaches silverfish centipedes believe you name it it was in the house but you can call to get an exterminator in on any Tuesday of your choosing at least. If you have any issues with your house and you need maintenance, good luck! It took a year for us to get a broken pipe in our restroom, our only restroom, fixed. The water was bubbling behind the trim and it was also pooling all over the floor. When I finally had maintenance come to correct this issue they not only used our household cleaning supplies but completely dirty and violated our home. We returned to find a filled trash with moldy caulk and paper towels filled with sewage and dirt. The office manager did offer to replace those items that were used by her staff, however it wasn't the principle of cost more so, the principle of being violated by not being able to trust your own maintenance staff to not use your supplies for your family to their own liking. Yes out front is pretty however when you get past the sometimes working front gate and you take a look past that you'll see a broken camera that has never worked since we've been here and a property littered with landmines of dog fecal matter. I don't blame the maintenance staff for not wanting to clean up after their tenants whom repeatedly offend by not picking up their dog waste. THE PROPERTY DOES ALLOW LARGE AGGRESSIVE BREEDS, and it seems like they have the biggest issue cleaning up. Thanks to our maintanance guy Larry for trying! In the interior of the apartment you will find faux wood cabinets granite countertops and laminate flooring. I'm not sure of all the kitchens match this way but we do not have any matching appliances. It took them a year to get us the microwave, that we are promised upon signing, and it is black and our fridge is white and our stove is black and white, it's a HGTV nightmare. There are not any incentives upon residing only that you get to pay maybe $10 more than you did on your previous lease term and they supply you paint if you want to touch it up your paint and a carpet cleaning service to clean your one area of carpet in your apartment. So basically if you're looking for a place just to crash at the end of the night and you don't give a crap where you're staying this is your place, but if you're looking for a place with respect for their tenants, nice facilities, safe pool area that is not overrun by random, large, non tenant families who wake up early to squat at our pool every weekend and occupy half of the pool and grill for a new celebration every weekend during the summer, then RUN FAR AWAY FROM THIS PLACE. Seriously, if you are looking for this review to get better you are reading the wrong review. In final, it is not a safe or friendly place. The staff says you can use thier printers, then they attack you for wanting to use it 3x in one month, for one page each. They HAD a tanning bed and jacuzzi, but never liked the upkeep, so closed them "for repairs", for years, and just decided to not fix them at all. I've had neighbors who have had apartments bulgerized, vehicles towed, broken into or had their car defaced with profanity. This place had such promise.
I've lived here back in 2013 & i just started a new lease for 2015 again. I really like the set up, never had problems with roaches or spiders or anything along those lines. Its cozy and quiet. would recommend if you dont want to be too close to downtown clutter as well.
After you've admired the beautiful greenery, dolphin fountain, and flowers that decorate the entrance realize that this is where the beauty begins and ends. Beyond the entry gates lies nothing more then a repository for dog waste. It's everywhere, in front of you, behind you, beside you and doesn't get cleaned even if you complain to the leasing office. Walking on the property is no different then navigating through a mine field- you have watch your step at all times. Now, onto the inside of the apartments. No matter how clean/OCD you are, cockroaches are inevitable. You are bound to see ATLEAST one so make sure to cover any drains or openings that could potentially lead outdoors or to other apartments. Any repairwork will only be completed in a timely manner only if you write a stern letter as per the Austin Tenant's Council guideline (where you pretty much threaten to move out or take legal action). With that said, if you can, take your hard earned money and search for better. There are other places in Austin which will give you more of a bang for your buck.
