Having family of 5 people is not easy to adapt with 2 bedrooms apartment, BUT we really have enjoyed every minute of 3 years in this great community and felt it home the moment we got in. Service and maintenance teams are just professional and on time helper. The gym is well designed and developed to give high level of comfort. The office people are so helpful and understanding. If I would have had a chance to rent again, I would go for Avalon Tysons corner. Best of luck. Ali
I just signed my third lease with this apartment complex, and as long as I keep renting, this is where I want to stay. The location is great--about a 12-min walk to the metro, right by the Beltway and Express Lanes, not too far from Rte. 66, and right by the mall and a ton of restaurants! Yeah, there are a few shortcomings; thin walls, they increase the rent at the end of your lease, but honestly the good outweigh the bad. The biggest reason I keep coming back is hands-down the leasing office staff. They're always super nice; they know exactly who I am (and from what I've seen, they know all the residents!). They are very helpful, whether it comes to answering quick questions when I call or figuring out a solution if I can't pick up my package before the office closes for the day. However, the most helpful they've been is when I was stuck in a terrible roommate situation. I found a roommate online (big mistake on my part), and it just went down the drain from there. This person was terrible to live with, even though she honestly was barely there. She got a 9-week-old puppy that she never paid fees for or asked me before getting it (although, after the second time I complained and refused to sign any paperwork to take responsibility of the dog being on the lease, she stopped bringing her over), she was constantly, extremely rude to me via text and in person, she was irresponsible (not paying rent until I'd remind her to, eventually stopped contributing in paying the bills, left lights on, my TV on), banned me from using her 1 piece of furniture, and didn't take any accountability for her guests. Just all-in-all a terrible situation, with her constantly threatening me and my guests. I read through the lease multiple times, but there was nothing she was doing legally wrong that could get her evicted. Knowing that I wanted to get out of that situation as soon as possible, I talked to the leasing office and they helped me find a solution where I could move out ASAP and remove myself from the lease. They helped me make sure that everything I was doing was according to policy. They were super nice through the entire process and very understanding of the situation I was in, and it made it way easier that they were cooperative! I'm happily moved out now and am glad to be out of that apartment with her.
I have lived at Avalon Tysons Corner for almost eight years. This is a very quiet, clean, and well maintained community. The maintenance team is extremely responsive. They always take care of my maintenance requests within one or two days. On heavy snow days, the maintenance team clears the streets and sidewalks within a day or two, depending on the snowfall. The fitness center is excellent and sets a new standard for complete fitness centers in apartment communities. I am very happy at Avalon, and I recommend this community for both singles and families.
The location is perfect for me, I can walk to work so I don't have the traffic headaches most folks deal with on a daily basis. I'm not in a renovated unit - my unit is basic - but it works for me. Cute one-bedroom layout. I have lived in this community since 2009, and I have never had a problem with my vehicle being broken into or vandalized, or worried about crime (not saying there's NO crime, I can say it's very, very LOW crime, and I frequently walk at night). This neighborhood is safe. I want to mention that I'm pleased with the job that Avalon's maintenance did with snow removal for the 2016 blizzard. It took a couple of days (so did VDOT, this was a historical storm), but the community is quickly getting back to normal. Thank you for your efforts! I can't close this review without mentioning the folks in the leasing office. I've always been well-treated; this is a friendly staff. Everyone with whom I've dealt has been courteous and responsive. I appreciate it!
Only been there for a week but so far I am enjoying my experience. The price is low for the square footage and location. The community amenities (especially the gym) is excellent. Maintenance requests are quickly answered and fixed.
