Great staff, always accessible and friendly. Great views too (lots of trees, out on the edge of town nearer the country). I used the office a lot as a law student (free printing). Easy access to downtown and walking distance to Carrboro Plaza where there's good restaurants. Easy to go on runs or bike rides from, plus there's the apartment gym. Apartment furnishings are very nice. The price seemed a little steep at first, but I think it's fair. (I also live alone, so it's spread less - with roommates I'm sure it'd seem quite reasonable.) Good place!
Very courteous staff who respond quickly to inquiries and an extremely quiet and tranquil atmosphere! Right along several bus routes, so the commute to UNC is easy and convenient. My apartment is very spacious and comfortable, much nicer than the interiors of numerous other nearby complexes. Autumn Woods seemed to be the only place that had both beautiful curb appeal and nice apartment spaces (other apartments felt outdated and less maintained, or had nice interiors but located in questionable areas). Also, very approachable neighbors. I enlisted the help from others tenants on several different occasions to help move some furniture down the steps into my unit. Thank you neighbors! There's plenty of parking available for visitors. Overall, a very safe, enjoyable place to live.
The office staff and especially the maintenance is always super helpful and very gracious to my family (two boys and two pups)! When there are questions or concerns they are always met with a smile and desire to make sure it is "made right". It has been a pleasure calling Autumn Woods home!
Autumn Woods is a great place to live, especially for graduate and professional students at UNC. Two bus stops within minutes of your front door, close proximity to Carrboro Plaza, plenty of parking for your guests, quiet community, elite car care center, gorgeous pool area, and modern, spacious units with W/D; what more could you ask for? Plus, the staff members here are smart, friendly, and extremely helpful should a problem arise (something that can't be said for most apartment complexes in/near a college town). As a UNC grad and someone who has lived in the Triangle for the last six years, I can tell you from firsthand experience you won't do better for the price.
I have lived in Autumn Woods for 6 months now and am enjoying the experience. Before I chose Autumn Woods, I also toured apartments at Poplar Place, Ashbrook, The Villages of Chapel Hill, and Governor's Village. Although those communities are similar, I ultimately chose Autumn Woods because of its updated kitchen and open floor plan. It was also the brightest and cleanest apartment I saw. Villages is very dated. And Governor's Village which would SEEM to be the newest from its exterior appearance, was also dated compared to Autumn Woods. Here's what I've liked so far: The ladies in the front office are ON IT. They're bright, cheerful, personable and know their stuff. They expertly and efficiently handle UPS packages, deliveries and service calls that come while you are away. I've made a few service and maintenance calls (dishwasher didn't work, washer didn't work, towel rack fell) and they were handled IMMEDIATELY. There's an outside trash compactor that sometimes overflows, but I've only seen that happen once and it was dealt with pretty quickly. I can not hear my neighbors, and I hope (!) they can't hear me and my kids. The people I've met in the community have all been cordial. I like the little touches in the community. They had two giant, inflatable Tom Turkeys at the entrance until the other day that always made me smile (and made great landmarks). Now they have a giant inflatable Winnie The Claus and Frosty. It keeps things festive. I have not yet used the fitness room or the business center, but happy to have it. Same goes for the carwash/car vacuum station. Cool amenity, I just haven't used it yet. The pool looks lovely and I have a view of it from my balcony, can't wait to enjoy it come summer. The location is excellent for me. Convenient to downtown Carrboro and Chapel Hill. Jump on Route 54 and you're quickly to parts beyond. There are two Food Lion grocery stores close, a nice dog park and trails at nearby Hank Anderson Park. So far, I have seen a nice diversity in the people who live here. There's a healthy dose of grad students, but I've also seen couples with babies, families with teen-aged kids, and even multi-generational families. I have school-aged kids. It's been decades since I've lived in an apartment, so I wasn't sure what to expect, but I am thoroughly pleased with the choice I made.
