Living here makes me appreciate just how much I was able to get for my money now that I'm moving to Columbus, OH and have to pay at 'least' $300 more per month for a comparable sized apartment. I live in a "Black Prince" style and it's great. The place is huge (850 open square feet) the closet is huge, it has a massive bookshelf area for putting up pictures, decorations, and (obviously) books and DVD's. It has two extra closets which more than accomodate anything you somehow weren't able to store in the large bedroom closet. The open floor plan makes it seem even larger than it already is. I also have a wood burning fireplace and a sizable balcony which were both enjoyed greatly this year. The shower head is high pressure and the plumbing works very well and the $10 extra a month is totally worth it for the assigned car port. Saved my butt this winter! I've enjoyed the fitness center and the pools, and even just the sheer size of the community which is always well kept and excellent to walk around. I have had a few maintenence issues, but they were always taken care of quickly and professionally. My only complaints are ones I'm sure others may share. First, it is in need of some updates. I believe they will be made, but it takes time. Example, the wooden cover to the balcony is rotting away and isn't safe to lean against. The second bleeds into the first complaint as the windows, quite frankly, suck. They leaked like a siv this winter and (being all electric, including heat) made my electric bill jump at LEAST $100/month in the winter months. I tried the plastic covering that they did give me free of charge, but it didn't work very well as the windows weren't really made to be covered efficiently with such things. That is the only reason I didn't give this place 5-stars though. As my first apartment, I've definitely been spoiled. Sure it needs some work, but it was a great place to live and I don't regret my decision one bit in deciding to move here.
Considering the HIGH RENT && mainly paying for water. I don't OWN this place. It's OVER PRICED!!! OKAY amenities. Inside the apartment is outdated. 1980s, maybe!?! A company out of Philly just bought it, so supposedly upgrades are coming!?! Idk. Doubt I stick around to see. Personally think I should get a MONTH FREE bc since moving in last October, EVERY month is something. Had the apartment above us pipe break. Caused back up &&& water went all over the kitchen , living room& carpet down the hall. They tried to HALF a$$ the cleaning & I have small kids. Heck no!!! Fix it. It took MONTHS for them to fix our hot water. Literally 5 service request. One time their idea of fixing it was replacing shower heads. Ummmm. Now, i'm a woman. And no expert. But HOW does this fix the issue!?! I live in the back. Closer to the golf course /river area. Assuming it would be quiet. Not really. It's kinda ghetto && nearly EVERY NIGHT I smell weed. Now, not against what others do. But. Come on!!! Learn respect && Canterbury did an amazing job (insert) sarcasm putting a note on MY DOOR, stating they get one more report of smelling it I'd be EVICTED. You want to see a mother & PREGNANT at that come up for air. No one answered my calls. They are great at ignoring calls. Soooo. Marched down there, asked for management. Office staff said they'd assist. Perfect. Said I'll chat with you, then I demand to see your manager. I did get the chance to chat with her. She was in her defensive friendly & I requested to NEVER have a letter like that on MY DOOR AGAIN. BC it wasn't me!!!! She stated everyone got a letter. Idk. I was up at 7am & didn't appear anyone else had it. And my drug addicted neighbors didn't have one && guaranteed they aren't up at 7AM to go to work. I wonder how HALF the people are affording rent here &&& the prices KEEP going up. They are redoing the inside of the clubhouse & their idea of apartment upgrades is PAINT. Lol. Ummmm. No thanks! Lower your rent. Install GOOD /NEW energy efficient windows. Upgrade the kitchen &&& the washing machines --the bathrooms are WAY outdated. For the BS &&& expense. Go elsewhere!!! I came here for the amenities && mainly Golf. I'll just go somewhere better & cheaper & find a better place to golf.
They never clean up in the back of Old Dover Blvd by the river. They treat us like 2nd hand citizens. We pay rent just like the people in front by the leasing office. Emergency maintenance never answers the phone. They are so mechanical. We are moving. This place SUCKS. dont rent here. Oh by the way We pay $800.00 a month.
Just moved in. Had a list of maintenance issues that needed to be taking care of. Office and maintenance staff all very nice! They have been very helpful in fixing issues and helping me settle in to my new home.
Theyre security will only call in certain cars to be towed that are parked in certain spots. On other days cars are parked in the same spot and they dont tow them. This was about a week before christmas and this happened to my girlfriends car. I called the office to ask them about this twice and they didnt answer both times. I left a message both times and they never got back to me. The hell with them. They should do theyre job by answering phones, I know it may be strenuous work for them, but if they reach deep down inside they can find the courage to answer phone calls when needed. They should also stop hiring fat and lazy security guards that will on pick out certain cars at certain times to get towed because they are in spots where they dont need to be. If your gonna tow one, tow all of them. The rules apply to everyone, not just the ones they feel like getting their fat asses out of the car and marking. Im just the customer though, and Im wrong. Obviously I am since they never bothered to call me back.
