I lived in summer house apartments in 2010. It's very sad to hear that after FIVE YEARS they still have the same problems and nothing has changed. From these reviews it seems to have gotten worse. Hands down, this was the worst place I've ever lived! Inadequate parking, poorly maintained, thin walls, rude staff, selectively enforce rules, extra charges when you move out (...doesn't matter how well you clean it). Honestly the biggest problem is lack of parking space. Second is maintenance. All the inside common areas are gross. Third redo the insulation in the walls or something. Then again... A better solution is just to tear the whole damn thing down.
I moved in here last week. Its the biggest mistake of my life upto now.The place is a shit hole. From people smoking weed everywhere to badly manged apartments I can write hundreds of reason about why not to live here. This place is run by crooked management who has just one aim to get the money out of your pocket. If you are thinking of moving in here and reading these comments Save yourself from a future disaster and don't move in.
Wish I could give some negative starts ....I lived there 5 years ago when I was a student , along with some others .I moved out early with notice and even got confirmation from leasing office, but unfortunately I did not kept it for my records not knowing this could happen. Later after 2 years I found out 5K charge was applied under collection in my credit history. I tried calling couple of times for copy of my relieving letter and got no response.Collection agency they work with are very rude and uneducated. Friends beCareful before leasing here and even if you did make sure to have documents with you at-least for 3years so you could fight back.
Worst apartment complex my family and I have ever lived in. A bad experience because of a variety of issues, such as terrible maintenance, high rent and high fees, greedy over-valuation of the property's worth, high crime and nonexistent security, as well as the fact that they are slowly pricing out even families who make $100k/year. Summer House has made it too expensive to justify renting from them while also making it exceedingly difficult to move out due to rapid rent increases of as much as $200/month, huge penalties for breaking a lease early, etc. Avoid at all costs. Contact me personally for greater detail, if needed.
Terrible place to live. Corporate management, very subjective, hypocritical rules that are differently and subjectively enforced from what the lease states. It is okay if you hear kids screaming all day at the top of their lungs from across the apartment complex even, but not ok to play loud music. You smell smoke coming into your apartment from the windows often, especially from between 2-5 am, because the people don't want to go to the designated smoking areas at that time, yet they don't mind calling complaints in for loud music at 2 in the afternoon, having their dogs bark all day when they aren't home, walking around above you, talking, and showering at 5 am to the point where you wake up,, etc. You can't walk in the grass at all because there is so much dog poop that people fail to pick up, yet they don't mind complaining either. If you have barking dogs, don't pick up your dog poop, have screaming children, and don't mind being woken by creaking and talking above you at early hours yet you can't wake anyone else when you live on the ground floor, not to mention you and your kids getting a contact high from about 12 to 6 am from all the marijuana smoking neighbors and waking with your asthma flaring or nose stuffed up from cigarette smoke filtering into your lungs as you sleep, it's a good place to live. Not a good place for singles who like to play loud music, argue with their mates, etc. because none of these will be tolerated. As I said, very hypocritical, ie chooses to enforce rules based on certain circumstances other than objectively and fair across the boards.If you can't enforce one rule, don't make it hard on people who don't break those but do break rules you can find, with the exception of kids, of course /rolls eyes, ie I'm being sarcastic because it's ok for them to be loud in this complex, regardless If you love to complain and break the rules in hiding, this is also the place for you (ie smoking at night on the balcony where they can't see you, not picking up your dog poop, etc.). I moved into this complex when I told them I did not want complaining neighbors and I thought it was loud ie kids screaming which I heard, yet as I see the rules are subjectively enforced, which I did not know. I told them I wanted a ground floor because I am occasionally loud and argumentative, and I don't mind the noise from above, barking dogs, or screaming kids, or even cigarette smoke in the middle of the night, even though I wake every morning with a headache and a stuffed up nose. I was willing to deal with those horrors based on the fact that I did occasionally break the rules myself. Fair is fair. Now I find that my actions are being squashed, I guess I will become a complainer just like everyone else. I was told incorrect information upon entering this lease agreement.
