I really enjoyed living here and would consider moving back someday. The apartments are well taken care of and very, very spacious. The pool and jacuzzi are always fairly clean and I loved being close enough to where I could go relax there after work. If you have dogs or children I highly recommend this place since there is a huge park right behind the complex that is really nice and fairly private as far as location. The park also has a running/canal trail running right next to it, which is great for exercise and the canal is always filled with cute ducks. The apartments are walking distance to multiple stores and restaurants as well. There is no assigned parking, which is sometimes really convenient, unless you get home late and have to park really far. The only other thing not in walking distance to me was the trash, I had to carry my garbage really far and there was no recycling bin. Overall though it is a very safe and peaceful area, Loved the neighborhood. The apartment itself was well clean, cared for and nice, but I did have a problem with my sink/garbage disposal breaking a few times and having multiple leaks in my kitchen. However, they were good about coming to fix it. The leaks also caused my patio on the other side of the wall to flood and get dirty. They do not have great drainage in the smaller patios and it tends to get dirty/flood a lot. The only thing I hated here was the laundry, the machines are old and just really bad. The washer almost seemed to leave the clothes dirtier and the dryer didn't dry clothes ever, but did tend to burn or rip parts of them. I stopped trying to even use them and instead took my laundry to my mom's house. So not perfect, but still I enjoyed this place. The only reason I moved was that I needed something a bit more affordable since my roommates left (spacious place for roommates btw)
I'm going on my 4th (and last) year of living here. It started off great, but now it's going downhill. I live directly across from the park and the canal and have had 2 break ins within the past 6 months. First my garage was broken into and had my mountain bike stolen, and just last night I had the passenger window of my car smashed and items stolen. There used to be a security car that drives around, but I have not seen it in months. I have had police reports filed both times. There was also a time when someone attempted to "hammer in the door knob" when I was in the process of switching apartments in the complex. The front office gives the usual "We're sorry, but there is nothing we can do." Hide your kids, hide your wife, and board up your windows because they are smashing everything out there.
Everything was really good here until my husband and I moved out we had left some stuff behind in the storage room called the same day ANDREA said everything was handled and moved to a safe place. We called again to check up on or stuff because we had a cousin that was going to pick it up a week later and the manager had no idea what we were talking about they said that our stuff I gotten thrown away! The staff here has no idea what they're doing and the manager had not one clue what we were talking about nobody relayed our message to one another and their maintenance people never said one word to the management about our stuff. So we are pretty sure that our desktop computer was stolen.. So to prevent this from happening to anybody else I would strongly discourage anybody from moving in here.
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE living here! I moved in a few months ago from out of state. I rented this apartment sight unseen and I couldn't be happier with my choice. The leasing girls Jessie and Melinda were super helpful and from sending my application and lease electronically, sending me pictures of the floor plan and the unit I was renting. They are also friendly and greet you with a smile. They are always eager to help anyone in their office. Andrea was super helpful helping set up my resident portal so I could make my payments online as well. Also, any time I have had an issue with my apartment, my work order is usually completed within 48hrs if not less. Gino is the head of maintenance and goes above and beyond. The maintenance staff take pride in the work they do and it surely shows. The grounds are always kept nice, the pools are always clear and sparkling. I wish they had free weights in the fitness center but what they do have in there is great. The residents are also super friendly and caring. I feel right at home here! I am extremely happy I chose to live here!
We have enjoyed our 7 months here at Little Cottonwoods. We have been very impressed with the friendly maintenance staff. They have responded to our maintenance requests very promptly & efficiently. The pool & jacuzzi have both been maintained nicely. There is never any garbage lying around and the grounds also are kept immaculate. There have never been any loud or disturbing neighbors either. We use the fitness center 3 times a week & find it sufficient for our needs. We are extremely satisfied.
