I have lived at Retreat since 2010. The Management changed in 08/13 from Equity to Bridge. The place has gone down hill there are loud partiers, drug dealing, garbage and dog poop all over the place. Many buildings are having cock roach and scorpion issues that they have not resolved. The water gets shut off without warning. When my lease is up I am moving. This used to be a nice place to live. They have 3 swimming pools and the only one that seems to get cleaned is the one by the office the other 2 are gross. When things breakdown in the property it takes months to fix. I have water sprinklers that go off like geysers so my area is like a swamp full of mosquitos. I can't say anything positive about this residence.
Worst place i ever lived in. THere is dog poop all over the place. Not much green area. Te enterance to Retreat is very nice, it shows nice pool and nice office, thats what made me live here. Apartments are old.
DO NOT MOVE HERE! We have lived here and paid rent on time for over 16 months, and in that time management has not successfully completed ONE work order, they have switched management THREE TIMES the front desk people are some of the rudest most inconsiderate people I have ever met, don't expect to just hand them your rent and be done with it, because it doesn't end there! one month they went so far as to LOSE OUR RENT, thank god we had the money order stubs to prove we went in and handed it to one of them. Without even giving us any form of warning we found an eviction notice on our door for the first time EVER (having completed, flawlessly, 4 previous leases.), there mistake will become your problem. Then, after living here for 12 months at this point, both my girlfriend and I had to work on a Sunday, which just so happened to be the first. we go to drop off rent first thing Monday morning, late fee. can it be waived? since we've never been late before? NO. expect to be dealing with heartless soulless robots at "The Retreat", without a doubt I would choose death/homelessness over moving into "The Retreat" this place has left the most horrible taste in my mouth, and I will SERIOUSLY be hunting for a new place to live, these people wont be stealing anymore of our money(which is over $700 for a one bedroom that could HARDLY be considered anything more than a STUDIO!). Two more months and my curse is lifted! Please. PLEASE for your own sake reconsider moving in here. overall, your late fees, and hidden fees will be going to making the place look good. which is its only good quality. I WOULD CONSIDER THE 1/5 STARS GENEROUS, I WASNT ALLOWED TO LEAVE ZERO STARS.
DO NOT MOVE HERE .. Look elsewhere the staff sucks . They are rude and the manager is a snot who doesn't care about anything ... we keep getting scorpions in our apartment and we ain't the only one ... they will make this place look great in the show room but don't fall for the bs . Our dryer didn't work they first three months and the timer is still broken on it but they are to cheap to replace it .. I was handing my 1 yr old something when a huge scorpion was right by his lil feet ... I tried calling the front office but of course no answer ... maintenance only two of them are nice the rest act like they are too good to be here... Please If YOU HAVE SMALL CHILDREN TAKE THEM SOMEWHERE ELSE ..
I really enjoyed my time there and the people were vey helpful and the apartment was taken care of . The only area needing help was the business equipment in the business center (always seemed broke) and the gym could use some additional space. However, for the price it is nice and well worth it.
