LOVE this complex! Having lived in Houston for the past 10 years and numerous apartments, this is the best by far. I have already signed the lease twice and will be doing so a third time when my current one expires. The grounds are clean, with multiple doggy "deposit/baggy" areas, resort style pool with two gas grills, and you can't beat the valet waste pick up! The maintenance crew also responds timely to requests placed. The only improvement I would make is if they would have a gate "clicker" instead of a card for those rainy/cold days. Two thumbs up! Happy to call this place home :)
Camden WO is pricey, but nice. I am proud to call my room my home and to have guests over. The rooms are spacious and laid out well, and the multiple dwelling units have BIG patios and tons of porch space. You get an outdoor closet as well which is nice if you have outdoor hobbies and need to stash, say, skis or a mountain bike. I've only ever had one problem with a neighbor being noisy all night, so this is a more subdued complex. The pool is remarkably nice, and if you're not very serious about lifting the gym will serve its purpose. The staff is very energetic and friendly, and maintenance is remarkably quick. The only real complaints I have are that you have to pay for cable even if you don't use it, and the smoke alarms are WAY too damn sensitive. I've set off the alarm cooking probably 10 times in 6 months, which is pretty annoying to all my neighbors.
Amazing and Calm place for living high security , all facilities avialble
I am writing this review with my real name just to make sure that people don't think it is scam or false. Camden Whispering Oaks is the one of the nicer places to live in town. The people who work there are nice excluding the management. The appartment is nice, clean and is very well maintained. I never had any issue staying there except for two major instances highlighted below which is the reason for this review. 1) In October 2013 my car window was broken in. The same night 4 other car windows were broken into. All the cars had their radar detectors or other valuable items stolen. Other petty stuff were left untouched.Like in my case, the glove compartment had the radar detector which was stolen but the GPS in the cup holder was still there. Looks like the person either lived or worked in the community. This was not the first time this had happened and it happened multiple times before. 2) Before moving out I had requested move out inspection but it never happened. One month after move out I was given a bill for $1400 approx which was close to one months rent as part of damages that we had done. Request to management for giving it a second though were ignored. Their lame justification was that this is what the vendor had charged them. We don't have any pets or kids. Nobody walked on the carpet with shoes or slippers. We took good care of the place. However there was some regular wear and tear due to 2 yrs of stay. The way Camden does their third party inspection is somewhat flawed if not illegal. The vendors who are supposed to get contract are asked to bid on the work required. Basically, they come in and tell the management what work is required. The management will not bother inspecting the damage themselves. So its like I borrow someones car, take it to the dealership, get an estimate of the fix & get the car fixed and then hand the bill to the person who borrowed the car. For a public traded Trust like Camden, this is a serious compliance issue. The 3rd party service provide is the actual inspector responsible for getting this work with marked up profit. This is exactly what happened to us. Inspite of getting our apartment getting cleaned by professional cleaning service, we were charged $100 for the cleaning, $100 for paint and wall damage. We had used pins to hang out light weight paintings but for some reason they had to charge an exhorbitant amount for the fixture. The worst charge was the $1000 in carpet damage because the contractor took pictures of some stains and decided the whole carpet had to be replaced which by the way was used by the previous tenants before us. In short, it was a horrible move out experience. Words of advice for people living in the community or planning on moving out. Take pictures before you move out or else they will threaten to report you to credit agencies in case a dispute arises. Do not hang lots of stuff on the wall. No need to mount TV etc. Or else even for small pins on the wall you are looking on an average more than $100 or so in remedy. Do not accept any new apartment or garage without new carpet or fresh coat of paint. Or else if it is already used, they will charge you for complete refurbishment to you once you move out. Last but not least, dont get carried away and write nice reviews for them just because they offer some gift cards or free food. Wait till you move out. They usually have online campaigns where good reviews are encouraged. Either way, take care of these things before hand. Don't repeat the mistakes that I did :)
I have to say Camden Whispering Oaks has it all. It's a very beautiful community that has charm and character and doesn't feel like you're living in apartments, It feels like a home. I look forward to coming home every evening and just enjoy it so much! The staff on-site are amazing and feels like an extended family. Check it out! You'll fall in love.
