Beachway Links is a great place to live. The community is laid back and quiet and we never have any issues. The actual apartments are some of the nicest in the area - there are cheaper apartments close by but you definitely get what you pay for...
I came to look at an apartment at Beachway Links today. I am not usually one to write reviews, but I like to give credit when credit is due. The staff in the office was very friendly on the phone and in person. When I walked in the office I was over 2 hours late, but Shayla (I am not sure I spelled it right... sorry) and Brittany didn't even mention it. I actually got a call reminding I had missed the appointment, and if I was still interested, which is why I stopped by. The apartment itself was the nicest I had seen in my budget. It had wood floors and stainless appliances and a washer and dryer, and it is on a golf course. I have been looking around the Melbourne area for at least 2 months, and this was definitely the newest and nicest for a reasonable price. I am not 100% sure if I will be moving up to Melbourne for work, but if I do take the transfer at work, I will definitely rent here.
I love living at Beachway! The community is set back off of Croton, and it boarders a golf course, so it is very private. With the great pool area, we feel like we are living at a resort all year round! The pool, play area, and dog park are what we use the most, though they also have a business center and a 24 hour gym. The office staff is great! When they see us out with the kids walking the dog, they always make sure to bring a treat out to Roxy, our boxer. Maintenance is great too. We had an issue with our AC, and they replaced the entire unit for us! We have lived in other apartments where nothing was fixed quickly, but that is not the case here. I have referred several of my friends, and my husband's coworkers to live here, I would recommend this community hands down. Overall, we are very happy here. We will probably stay here until we can buy our first home. Thanks Beachway Links!
Most people don't stay more then a year. After your lease is up, expect a large increase in rent. They have recently started to overcharge for water and sewer ($72 for a single person in a one bedroom without a washing machine...come on). They spend more money on landscaping then they do on fixing the buildings. The property management crew, not the maintenance guys, are inexperienced and change every year. The maintenance guys are the only good thing about Beachway Links. Management is more interested in making money then keeping tenants. Save yourself the hassle, time and money and find someplace else.
Like the atmosphere here. Lots of furry friends walking around which is nice. Good for price and quiet neighbors.
