Canyon Ranch was a great home for me and my wife! As far as amenities, they are fairly standard for apartments. The layouts standard as well (although we enjoyed having the breakfast bar - great for entertaining.) The difference is in the staff! Jeremy was a down-to-earth Manager when issues arose and Debbie was a sweetheart when it came to more normal issues. They were insightful during the move-in and move-out process as well. I was even pleased with the neighbors! I would recommend this place to my friends and family!
My husband and I signed a 1 yr lease on this place, and there is NO way we're sticking around. Our lease is up in a couple of months and I honestly couldn't be happier. Now, the office staff is friendly, but the company they work (Weidner) for is manipulative and will take any dime from you they can get. You can't be more than 10 days late with rent, or you will be served for court and will be forced to pay attorney's fees (upwards of 250$), if you can't pay your rent near the 20th, it's eviction on spot. If you want to move out a WEEK early, you will be forced to pay the retail rate of the apartment (ours went from 775 to 820 - watch for the prices to rise when you resign a lease) and we were signed in on a deal, and if we decided to move out a week early, we would have to pay the difference from the deal we got (That's an extra 375 at LEAST) Every day you're late on utilities, they charge 10 dollars extra... not to mention the RIDICULOUS utility prices... we were told 120$ max in the winter. Our cheapest bill was 110... and that month was a BLESSING.. this month we're paying upwards of 140$. If you decide to rent here, I'm sorry. Just make sure you read ALL THE FINE PRINT on your lease.. because these people will ROYALLY screw you. I can't wait to find out what they will try to charge us for after we move out. (Also, I can't forget to mention the "create your own parking" in this complex. People park literally WHEREVER they please. Even Illegally in front of the fire hydrant, and the office doesn't do diddly about it. Not to mention the fact that they JUST NOW hired on a security company who came around for about a week and I haven't seen since, because we had people scoping out our cars and breaking into them in the middle of the night. We asked for cameras... they gave us a nonexistent security program. I understand some people like the price... but the area is going ghetto, people getting shot left and right (look it up i'm not exaggerating) I have a baby, and I refuse to subject him to this area and these people. Aaaaaaaand, that's about it.. I think.
