I am a retired Navy Chief with two girls. I found this home to be a paradise. Managment specially accomodated all my needs. Anything needing repairs are fixed within 24hrs, our maintenace crew are top notch professionals. I love it here !
I stayed in this apartment for 2.5 years and my review will tell you all you want to know about this property. If you don't want to read through the entire review and want a quick answer, then in short, I will say stay here but do not expect anything from the management. Okay, here we go. Pros: Good large complex. Amazingly safe. Well located. Not a single instance of theft/vandalism/robery or any crime in those 2.5 years that I stayed here. Ample parking. If you are expecting 20 guests to come over to your place for a dinner, your apartment might fall short of space...but parking is available in plenty. That too inside the apartment complex, not on the streets. Half of the parking is shaded and half open. Well marked and they are not numbered for the individual apartments. So you can park wherever you want. I've also heard some college kids partying and making noise, but that was very very rare...may be 3 times in 2.5 yrs and also on Fri nights. So that should not be an issue. Very safe for kids to skate board/ride bikes inside the property. Enough area inside the property so that you can take a walk yourself and relax in the evenings. Nice Pateo. Room furnishings are not great but not bad at all. You get what you pay for. I haven't faces too many issues with the fittings. Maintenance staff is very helpful and mostly attend to your problems as soon as they hear about them. There are 2 pools, large enough, neither heated. In 3 mi radius, you will find: All the department stores, All fast food joints, theaters, gyms...pretty much everything. Problems: The management is lousy. Stay far far away from them. The less you need to talk to them the better. They will never ever go out of their way to do something to help you. Even if you are a long time tenant and pay rent regularly. Rene is a shrewd lady and I feel like ripping her lips each time I see her. All she knows is how to fake smile. That is all. Laura is a good lady, but can't do much since her superiors won't let her take any decisions. Rest are best avoided. They close the gym and pool whenever they want. Gym is ill maintained. It is a very modest gym with very few equipments and even still some of the equipments do not work all the time. Some apartments have roach problems since many Indians stay here and the style of cooking that they have can cause roaches easily. I am in Indian and I know it well. Conclusion - It is nothing special but still the best apartment in this area since none of the others have the basic features like safety, good parking etc that people look for. Compared to Brookwoods, Casa Madrid, stonebridge, sycamore and many others, I would say this apartment is a much better choice. The price, no surprise, is on the higher side because of this reason.
