The community is a pretty safe spot and the apartment office staff is also pretty good to deal with. Calm and quiet in the evenings if you want that atmosphere. Only thing which they could improve is the apartment interiors since the buildings are quite old
Everything was fine at first. We received our first noise complaint in our mailbox claiming loud music and moving furniture all day. The first part I understood because my roommate had gotten drunk and rowdy playing music one night but the other half was a lie. The only furniture was in my room and I hadn't moved it since the day after we moved in. However, about a week later I got a phone call telling me we had another complaint during an argument we had. There was no screaming, no yelling, just a really intense conversation that I believe was at a reasonable and normal level of sound for any people to have at night. I left the apartment that night to cool off at my parent's place and suddenly got a phone call from my roommate an hour later telling me that someone had called the police on us over a 'domestic disturbance'. I was really confused because I had left for that exact reason that things might escalate. I was annoyed now at this point, because we hadn't made any noise that night and had no right to be involved in our business nor complain about a non-issue. But the following night was cause for concern. My roommate again antagonized me and we got into a physical altercation this time that he initiated. At one point, he had overpowered me and was strangling me. I was trying my best to get my phone back from him to call the police but he was too strong for me. Luckily, the neighbors did and I was relieved. No one knocked at our door, but it did scare my roommate enough to stop. The following day, I decided not to press charges after much consideration because he was already going to court over assaulting a former roommate of his. And then I received another phone call informing me we were to be evicted because of that night. In a way, I was relieved because it meant I would not be forced to live any longer with an abuser. However, I was very angry that I was being forced out of my own home because of him. I tried interjecting during this lady's rant to try and explain what happened but she refused to listen and didn't care. She was not interested at all in getting my side of the events that took place. I decided if this was the way they were going to treat me as their tenant, when I had done absolutely nothing wrong, then I did not want to live there. Overall, the apartment wasn't too bad. It's old so they just put stuff together hoping it will stay when it's really falling apart, and I'm sure they will try to blame you for it. Our dryer knob broke off, our screen door came off, the mirror in my bathroom was falling off, the heating system is so old it doesn't even work properly, there was wood rot on our balcony that I discovered after moving in, under a pile of dead leaves (they were probably trying to hide it) and we had an ant infestation in my room that took them weeks to do anything about, and still they did not go away. So if the condition of the apartment isn't enough to scare you off then the staff surely will. At least the property manager, Mary, will. The others seemed okay. I just wouldn't recommend living there unless you want to be evicted in the middle of a 60 hour work week over the mostly false claims of one neighbor without them listening to your side. And God forbid if you are in a domestic abuse situation because they wont care about that either. They support liars and abusers. I've learned my lesson to pick a better roommate and definitely pick a better location to live at. There are much better locations in this area and with friendlier, more understanding staff that actually care about ALL their tenants.
I have lived here for about a year and a half now and I don't have any of those problems! I love the pool! I go there with friends all summer! They do put a note on your door about inspections a few days in advance! I have had them come when I'm getting ready for work and you can just tell them to come back later! I wouldn't say they are the best but they are deffinately not as bad as these other people are saying!
Apartments are old, staff is very rude. i would never recomend this place
The staff is extremely rude. They will continually enter your apartment unannounced to do "inspections". Avoid living here at all costs. They actually told me to buy bug spray with my own money to combat the pests that kept crawling through the drafts in the outdated and inefficient windows. If you're paying $840 a month in rent (utilities not included btw), the building needs to handle these types of issues. Also one of the maintenance men (the one with large gauges in both ears) is extremely creepy and will make you feel extremely uncomfortable if you're a female. They will also lie on the end of lease inspection (overcharging for ridiculous things such as: the apartment is dirty or appliances are damaged, when everything is in perfect condition) Just an overall horrible experience. I was so excited to close out my lease at this ridiculous excuse for a business. And one last thing..the lights at the front of the complex, near the ponds, do not work and when you have to park at other end of the complex, since there is no other parking after 9pm, you will be walking in the dark with old men watching your every move.
