I've lived here for several months and I hate it so much. I've never lived in a worse place. It's almost all students and my new upstairs neighbors think it's cool to walk around and make noise all night long... like sunset to sunrise. I can't sleep, at all. The office doesn't care. Nobody cares. People drive too fast in the lot, the parking isn't good, people drink beer while standing in the pool and I've even seen people smoking in the pool using the deck right next to the pool as an ashtray. This place sucks so bad.
The office people are very rude and are never there. I had an appointment at ten to pick up keys and didn't get them til much later because there was only one person there and their phone call seemed to be much more important. They also wouldn't let us into the pool, which is supposed to close at dusk, when it was still two hours til the sun started to set. The picture of a newly renovated apartment has a microwave, but is there ever any truth in advertising? Guess not.
The office was not honest or helpful. Our neighbors below us smoked illegal drugs all the time and they did nothing to stop it. Also there were so many fees that there should not have been. Would never recommend this apartment complex to anyone.
First, the good: Office staff has been super nice. Grounds are well kept, maintenance has been prompt every time I had an issue. However, the bad (for me) is a big deal. The apartments are old. You might get "updated" appliances and cabinets, but the walls look like they have been through hell and back, patches all over the place. I could even deal with this though. The breaking point for me is the continuous bug issue. I'm constantly having to deal with cockroaches (and big ones too), spiders, and various other wall-climbing bugs. The complex has an exterminator who comes by weekly if you request it, and it seems to keep the bugs at bay for 2 weeks maybe, but then they are back. Granted, this is probably do to the wooded environment and proximity to the lake, but if they properly sealed the doors, windows, and various holes you'll find in the walls (under sinks, in laundry area, in utility closet), the bug issue would probably be less of an issue. Bottom line, if I didn't have the bug issue, I'd be staying. But for the price they charge, I'm not dealing with the bugs. I have had to resort to keeping a can of roach spray on my table so it's in quick reach when I find one. Your results may vary based on the unit you have, but it's a problem in some units.
this is my third year here. this place is super nice, quiet and convenient, management are super nice, maintenance is fast and professional. thank you
