The best amenity of this apartment community is that it is adjacent to trails etc. I've lived in Village at Bear Creek for less than 5 months & so far I am underwhelmed even with the trail system. Upon moving to Colorado we rented a 2 bed 2.5 bath townhouse here at Bear Creek. The appearance is very nice throughout the community.. HOWEVER, I have had problems with appliances & plumbing every single month. First the oven was smoking even after I cleaned it, then the refrigerator started to smell like something had died in it. The smoke detectors went off for no reason (not a low battery either); the toilets stop up all the time; a handle broke off a toilet; then the washing machine started leaking all over the floor; and then the handle for cold water at the kitchen faucet came off. As I write this review I have 2 of the 3 toilet out of commission. I am extremely dissatisfied with all of this considering the rent is over two grand a month. For that much money I expect better quality. Other problems I noticed outside my townhouse are the shingles missing from the roof over the garages across the street (I can see them from the 2d floor) which may lead to water damage of any property being stored in them & the gutters throughout the neighborhood that are totally clogged. So, it looks nice & is better than section 8, but quality wise I've had better in military barracks and spent less on the mortgage of the house I just sold.
Great place to live. Customer service is great
I've lived here nearly 2 years, and have no complaints. When I called maintenance (only twice) someone came promptly and it was fixed. The community is so close to the mountains and the view is lovely. They are now painting the buildings and it is looking good. Someone in an earlier review complained that their energy bills were high, but I found mine to be lower than average. There are plenty of shade trees and bushes, and the patio roof shades the front rooms from too much sun in summer, and lets the sun in during the cold months. It faces south. I don't need much heat or cooling at all. The one complaint I have is the water pressure in our building is low, so it takes a long time to rinse out the shampoo and conditioner. But overall, I would recommend this community to anyone.
First off staff is really nice and the complex is tucked away by bear creek so its not all bad. What has made this place difficult to live in is the appliance and bug problems. The moment we moved in we had bat bugs in our kitchen area due to bats in the atick, something you would think would be inspected beforehand especially since this was not the first time apparently. Then over summer we have had wasps build a nest outside our balcony and find their way inside everyday. They took care of the nest but there is still plenty of wasps hanging out around our balcony. We chose one of the older apartments, which has led to a lot of appliance problems such as the stove, washing machine, fridge and bathtub, some which have been fixed while others just band aided. Overall not a horrible place to live but not for us
The apartment aesthetics were fine; though prepare for some pretty inefficient heating systems and for high energy bills. The furnaces are on the outside of the apartment in a non-weatherized closet. So if its cold outside your furnace is working extra hard to combat the cold air inside and heat your home. The worst part of the whole place was dealing with a national landlord. Everything is standardized which is nice, but the local office has little if any control over anything. They are unwilling to open a discussion about anything and will nickel and dime you in every situation possible. You will pay way too much for what you get.
