Positives: The apartment I stay is very nice with new doors, windows, switches, carpet etc. The community is very nice and the leasing office/management prompt and courteous. You would definitely enjoy the stay here. Negatives: Not value for money - costly apartments (should have washer dryer in each apt at this cost, more parking space and more play areas for kids). Also, there is probably no gym - they should have one. The laundry rooms are insufficient. They look ancient and need overhauling. One other thing ( wouldn't call it a negative thing; but just an aggressive policy) - The lease agreement says that we have to be responsible for the entire period of lease until a new resident comes (in case of a lease breakage). With community as popular as Durham Woods; I think they should reconsider this policy (like 2 months rent etc. instead of the entire period).

We have been living in Talmadge Village for over 2 yrs. The property is kept clean, and the maintenance staff are very friendly and helpful. The townhomes are fine, but you definitely can hear the neighbors next door if they are overly noisy. There are a few people who reside here that have more than 2 cars and manipulate the free parking spaces with their vehicles due to their garages not being able to fit a vehicle. The neighbors are mostly friendly and their are many children who live, play, and catch the school bus around. I can only say that they need to upgrade the playgrounds here and in Durham Woods to accommodate the children, and also the Tennis Courts are in need of repair. The prices for rent here are reasonable for the space. Other apartment communities throughout Edison charge more for less space. The apartments and Townhouses have an HVAC unit and since all, or most are carpeted, the bill is less than the ones with Wood Flooring.

it been a couple years since i lived there. The pool I went to sucks people were old and crusty nobody took showers people peed in the pool and the the staff put way to much chlorine that you could legit see it we could have died. And my house blew up like 1994 and I dont feel comfortable there

I am staying in Durham Woods Edison NJ Since June-2013. All rooms space is really large. Specially liked sky-room apartment because children can play in sky room without disturbing down stairs people. Thanks, Mandar Kelkar

One of the best community I have ever stayed in US, love the environment and the spacious nature of the apartments. Good and timely maintenance is another plus for the community. Also connectivity to all the major highways proves to be promising and useful for daily commute.
